Yesterday while cleaning, I found an old diary lying in a carton of old books. It was old, rustic and dated 2005 on cover. Wondering whose diary was it, I started flipping through the pages, it was almost blank, but in between the pages I saw a beautiful heading “A Bridal Princess”. Then I remembered it was a short story written by my sister and then I called her to show what I found. I asked my sister to read it to me, as it was her masterpiece. I think she was 12 when she wrote this short story. This is one of the cherished piece of work by my little sister.
The quote that came coming to my mind after listening to the story is….
A Bridal Princess
A girl lives with her parents. She was in her twenties. She was so calm, sweet, innocent and unaware of outside word. Thinking of her innocence and outside beastly world her parents restrict her to stay at home. She was good in every aspect. Being alone and bored at home, the girl started to think, what she can do to kill the time.
Slowly she started to explore her interests and found out painting is something which she loves to do the most. But she is confused, whether painting is her best way or not. One day while she was sleeping, a ray of early morning sun light coming through the window falling on her face, illuminating the space around, woke her up and in that magical moment she felt, that light was saying,” do whatever you feel good for you from bottom of your heart and you will be happy”. She decided to take her creativity as her choice and turned her room as her creative corner. Soon after she convinced her parents to display her paintings in a city art gallery.
Name, Fame and Success
Success was not so far for her, her creativity, talent, hard work and dedication got recognized and appreciated ….name, fame and everything she dreamed off over the years was coming live in her life now…..with her beautiful smile, talent and innocence….the girl has made many friends over across and the ones who once wondered what she can do by drawing colored lines on a paper, now welcome her with smile and call her their dear friend…
Soon the wedding was on cards for the her and she was in doubt whether her to-be life partner would be interested in her work, will fuel her passion , would be supportive, etc…getting carried away in the whirlwind of thoughts, she said ‘YES’…as she don’t want to go against her lovely parents. She got married and moved to a new place with the man of her life. Soon her husband recognized her creative passion, encouraged her in every aspect, appreciated her creativity, stood by her and he became backbone to her success. Her husband being the wind beneath her wings, she flew high….she soar new heights and to a new world which she always dreamed of….
