Om continue with his story telling to Rudra:
“Anika was the only child of her family till 4th std. She was the apple of everyone’s eye. But she was not like that at school. She used to be so innocent such that she used to get emotional when she loses her friend over Tia.
Tia used to be her neighbour and they used to compete with each other in studies. Tia used to get a lot of friends because of her outward nature, whereas Anika doesn’t. Anika used to try to make friends with the ones she used to have but after becoming friends with Tia, they used to avoid her. Anika was sad but that was overcomed by the way her family treats her and new other friends.
Sahil was born when Anika was in 4th std. She was excited to get a new friend cum brother. She used to always take care of him when Gayatri Aunty was busy. She used to a good sister. But things changed gradually.
Aunty’s work stress started to increase day by day and she used to take it over Anika and Harsh uncle. But uncle was calm those days, so he used to never react back and calm her down after some time. This happened even before Sahil was born, but those days Anika was pacified later by Aunty herself.
As years passed by, this effected Anika indirectly. She started feeling insecure as years passed. Aunty used to punish her even for a small mistake, which includes misplacing of an object. She used to insult Anika by starting from the problems which was caused even when Aunty was pregnant with Anika.
Anika started feeling day by day the temptation to attempt suicide. She even tried to suicide hadn’t Gauri called her on the phone. Gauri came to know the condition of Anika from that day.
Gayatri Aunty had Harsh uncle to talk on those issues but Anika had none for her. Sometimes Aunty used to instigate Uncle to punish Anika. Uncle used to beat Anika with stick such that sometimes Anika couldn’t even sit properly.
I visited Anika the next day. I could see the dark circles which I failed to notice due to her smile.

Pls tell me if it is bad also, like did I exaggerate the feelings, or like that.
