Praveen | 2 comments I am actually looking for the name of a story. The plot goes like this....

The story begins with the narrator looking out through his window at a tree on the bank of a river. He tells his friend that the tree was once a man and its lover drowned in the same river while they were escaping in a boat which capsized when a boulder was thrown at it by the chasing aliens(I do not remember what they are exactly, but they are not human). The man searched for his lover vigorously and swam to the bank when he could not find her. He kept looking for her and became a tree with its branches immersed into the river still looking for his lover.

The narrator then tells the remaining story of the lovers.

No..it is a normal tree and its branches are way bent into the river to symbolise the man searching for his lover in the river

You can "bump" your thread every month or so. This pushes your thread back to the top of the folder instead of languishing here on page 213 from seven months ago where fewer eyes will see it. Get back in the game! Bump!
You can do this by typing a new comment at the end of the thread, or even by typing the word "bump."
Good luck!
