Once Upon a Time part ii

Sara got  upset when she heard  that her mother is sick because she loved her mom more then anything in this world and wanted to bring  in her life happiness health and economical stability.she asked in her school for one week leave but the head did not accepted her application and said that you are new here and can take only one leave during one month.Sara  then left  the job and  got in train to reach her mom .




When she arrived in her home she was surprised that her mother was not sick.She   asked the reason of such letter then  her mom told her that  his father is not coming home since months and the money she sent to them is very less to run bread of the house ,on the other hand his  cousin who  used to force her for marriage is constantly  threatening them that he will kidnap her younger sister and make their lives miserable   if they did not fulfill his demand.Her mother told Sara that she got a proposal  for Sara and it is from her cousin one in whose house she stayed when she went to the other city .Sara was very shocked because he never showed any interest or intention while Sara were staying in their home .



They used to meet at normal hello hi and thats all.Sara took no time to say No for this proposal but  she was worried when her mother forced her to do so .They are nice educated family , her mom tried to convince her , boy who sent proposal is on good job and above all he is a modest guy and likes you very much.Sara was in fear of giving her life in the hands of stranger who felt arrogant and egoistic whenever she saw him because he never tried to be friendly with her when she was in their house ,
Sara had no idea what kind of person he was and pressure from her mom arose to higher point.


The  day Sara agreed for marriage she felt so miserable and lifeless .She cried whole night and complained God that why he is not helping her and reducing her miseries.Her body was shaking with her tears were  making unstoppable flow on her cheeks ,Oh God what will i do ?where will i hide when he will try to touch me with his dirty lustful  hands .Oh God you know how much i hate men how can you put in such condition that i will have to bear him so close .Sara 'mom cried too as she knew the state of her daughter 's mind and heart but in situations they were facing it was the best decision   according to her wisdom .Once Sara is married she will be away from all problems she thought and then i will leave this village , will go in a city near by and will do some kind of work to run my home and to support the studies of younger daughter as she was about to complete her matriculation .



Within a month Sara was married and moved to a house where she came month back as temporary guest.It was her first night there as a bride .She was looking so pretty though sadness was laying on her face but it seemed that grief glowed her personality more.She wore red  dress according to tradition  and heavy jewelry .She  did not like any of this red bangles around her wrist seemed like hand cuffs who arrested her freedom and her free will to look after her helpless mom and sister.



Unlike new bride she was thinking about her mom and sister and their miseries and helplessness  when her  groom came into  her room .She felt suddenly a huge wave of fear which shaked her body slightly .Blood in her body seemed to leaped over and over with the pressure of her negative thoughts for her groom.Even he realized her fear and canceled his wish to sit near her on bed .But  Sara was not comfortable as he was still with her in same room.He sat on the  bed and said ,hope you are not tired much ,he stopped for while as he is thinking about a topic he can talk about ,then he said please be easy and if you want to change the dress change it and go to sleep .



Sara was little surprised but she did not showed and asked him  Are you  going to stay in  this room ,she  hold then added actually i cannot sleep if you stay here .Robin his groom smiled  while looking at her as she is a child  and replied  i  cannot go in any other room as due many guests are staying at the house as tomorrow it is celebration of  marriage ,and even if the rooms were empty i would have to stay with you because we are husband and wife now and we have to share a room not only room but heart and soul too,last line he said in a delicate romantic way which remain unable to touch Sara's heart.

  8. Sad that some people are forced into a situation where they have no control, hope all turns out well but marriage is hard enough when you know the other half, very hard when you are strangers.

  23. I believe you did an excellent job relating the experience of an arranged marriage through the vividness and imagery expressed through your words. I also enjoyed the hope for the relationship in which you ended this passage. Thank you for sharing!
