I’m late for this FF challenge hosted by rochellewisofffields, collections are closed so not bothering for the words count.
His complaint was that no one understands him. He only tries to make people aware of fake god-men, healers, who can give Talisman, Mantras and claimed cure for every ailment. Even his wife was visiting many religious places in vain, for a child. All his pleading to adopt a child failed.
“I want a child of our own blood.” she would say.
Slowly he stopped preaching and drowned himself in alcohol. Pile of bottles was the clear sign of his inner turmoil. His argument was, “I come to everyone’s level after drinking only.”
I tried to intervene. Tried to make her wife to be reasonable but she said ‘ It’s our family matter, keep away from it.”
Can I do anything? But dammit, he is my brother.
