I came out and saw the couple. they were smiling at me. I don’t know why. I glanced at my mom. she was tensed. I slowly got to kitchen. I heard my mom saying that I am shy to meet them. but the actual truth is that I m hungry. I drank some juice and came out with a fake smile. I don’t wanna hurt them.
again I was feeling weird as they didn’t notice me. I just putted on my headsets. I don’t wanna know what they are discussing about. then everyone stared at me with happy ness. then the couple bid goodbye.
my mom glanced at me again.
mom: I should have told u before, its my mistake.
me: what mistake? mom pls say everything ?
mom: koushi… the couple… came here… they… they have a son… they wanted u to marry him… we too like them… they too like u… hope u understand… its… a… surprise
me: surprise? mom its a shock!.. at least you could have informed me.?
dad: we like them but its your choice. we’ll say that u don’t like him when they call us. fine?
me: OK. I am fine. I don’t wanna marry now.
I got in with a confused face. what should I do? should I accept this proposal.? no I dont. I can’t. my mom knocked the door. I opened the door. my mom came in. she sat beside me. she said,’ dear, I don’t wanna force u, but I can guide u. they are good. I don’t wanna handcuff u in relation, but a partner to accompany in your crazyness. I hope u understand”. she got out. again I am confused. but my parents are not happy with my decision. I slept with lot of questions.
next day, I decided what to do. I got down. my dad was not happy, but he pretended. I sat with my coffee cup and watching news. the phone bell rang and my mom sadly took the call, she talked randomly, and glanced at me. I know why. they must have asked my decisiuon. I just lifted my hands up with a thumbs up. my mom smiled and said yes.
dad: what? u accepted ? god I can’t believe. u made me happy today. god bless u my child.
mom: u could have said me yesterday.
me: its my way of surprising u.
I informed my friends about it. they didn’t believe me. I just hanged around with them.
its night and so I hurried home. on my way, I witnessed an accident. there was no one but me. I saw a young guy probably a year elder to me lying unconscious. I woke him up. he was in the state of shock. he was hurt in his head and bleeding. I nursed his wounds. he stared at me and asked about his mother. we searched for his mother. but couldn’t find any trace of her.
