Are you Shifting ?

Those who believe in Soul mates
Come, come inside
I am happy to have found you
let’s have some tea, let’s talk
for you and I will be great friends.
I  know, I just know
and to those who don’t  believe in this magic
or any such matter at all
all I will say now is
There is, there is  my darling
such a beautiful thing called soul mate,
some find them in their spouses,
some in their friends
and some in their victims….
(waiting to be relieved of their painful miserable lives)

She was excited, had all the right reasons to be – New job, great perks, beach front house. Oh what a lovely start of this young life. And then she met him.

As the door bell rang Sara rushed in to open the door, aah she was relieved to see him, the movers and packers guy finally!

She took him for a quick tour of her house explaining how she wanted her things to be packed and shifted, openly flaunting how neat clean and organized everything was, and a bit irritated at how he silently kept taking notes.

He started with his job as focused and as efficient as always. It took him half an hour to pack her with care in a body bag and keep it in his large van.

First packet done, he ticked a box on his note.

He regretted not having enough time to explain the why to her, but he knew she wouldn’t have understood! She wouldn’t, the innumerable times he got canned for being messy….

She had to leave, he had to help her…

His superbly organized soul mate from his beautiful messy world.

About Soma Mukherjee

I often say things that put me in a jam, Jams go well with Buttered Toasts, Toasts are great hosts, Ghosts not so much, Although they can dance, Not all dancers are serial killers, Serial killers do not use Body bags that often, body bags aren't leak proof, Proof is in the Pudding.

  1. From my 8 moving experiences abroad the only good thing I have to say about it is that packers and movers steal enough of your stuff so you have less to unpack on the other end. lol

  2. Brilliant! But I better not let R read this or he might be tempted to pack up his obsessive compulsive soul mate 😀

  3. You should be very proud of this, Soma.

  4. Hi Somaji
    Long time reader, 2nd time commentor 🙂 Loved both the lines about soulmates and the short story with the twist. I think you are also a regular viewer of Dexter like me 🙂

  5. Brilliant Soma and I was right, you are bad 😉

  6. Very well written – really great… 🙂

  7. Thank goodness he didn’t leave a mess. I was worried for a minute 🙂

    Thanks for the heads up Soma , I have a few people who I’m going to recommend this mover and packer guy to 😉

  8. -magia i marzenia są motorem życia—-pięknych dni dla ciebie i twoich bliskich;-)

  9. Didn’t see that coming, my. Wonderfully done. Shivers.

  10. Cosmic movers, it seems – they pack and ship anything, anywhere – and they specialize in souls!

    A business that knows no recession —

  11. Woah. Glad you shared their business details here. Won’t call them 😀
    Scary? Way beyond! I’m NOT shifting, thank you 🙂 🙂

  12. Heebee Geebees for me!

  13. If you were to ask my other half – she would say that I also love mess!! 🙂

  14. This is one creepy post I’ve read after a long time! Great writing! 😀

  15. I should not have expected anything else from you Soma, how scary. The next time i will see movers and packers and……….Very unexpected ending, I had to read it twice to understand. Good one.

    Header is beautiful.

  16. I want the movie rights for this one, Soma. I’m going to do the directing, starring (as you know who) etc. etc. HAHAHA!
    Great one. Gore, murder, sophisticated prey…. nothing is greater than a psychopathic bit. 🙂

  17. What a turn this one has. I loved it, Soma…Your brilliant! ♥♥♥

  18. Well that certainly took an unexpected turn! I like how you draw the reader in expecting one thing, and then deliver something completely different.

    • Thank you so much Binky, this one is my first attempt in this genre..inspired by Andro and Deb..both have been doing such a fabulous job..very inspiring 🙂

      • Yes, it’s in a similar vein as Andro and Deb’s stories. Have you ever seen the old B&W Alfred Hitchcock TV show? They had stories similar to this.

  19. I am a deep believer in soul mates as well as soul friends.
    You are one of my soul friends, Soma. I have known that for quite awhile.

  20. SOMA! That’s just creepy! Hahaha! You naughty girl! You gave me a fright! 🙂 Clever.

  21. Whoa!!! What a shock to my system!!! Good work! You brought it with this piece.

    May you be blessed AND safe. . .lol

  22. I forgot to mention that your poem was awesome, too, and kept us wondering at the end! Love ya! 🙂

  23. Oh, Soma, loved this and the twist in the end, yes, a little creepy, too! If we ever move again, I’ll think twice about calling movers to help “pack!” And lesson learned not to be messy! 🙂 Hugs and love to ya! xo

  24. Great stuff today, Soma. Plenty off chill and creepy to it. Though sentimental that I am I also liked the first few lines at the very top. \^_^/
