It was the moment, the moment which needed no explanation
the moment which brought her on the two ends of the road where she couldn't choose just the one.
It was the moment which tested her love, tested her love as a daughter
and a true lover.
Her father was standing affirm in her front with eyes red which were successful in showing tears as anger
at other end of the room stand a tall, handsome and pretty boy with softness in his eyes and wetness on his face
The environment was hot and each and every minute for her was very important
her one decision right or wrong would change not only her life but the life of two families
Most importantly those two men which looked at each other as if one was from India and the other was of Pakistan.
Finally her father spoke, spoke in a loud voice mixed with his toughness, " who do you choose?"
she felt like something hit her hard
felt like suddnely the land below her foot slipped.
Her head was throbbing with only one question, whom to choose
his father or him
As both loved her
both cared for her
Both supported her
whom to choose
I can't do unjust to others love by choosing the other,"Said her heart"
I can't go against my father's wish
but I can't leave the one who loved me with so much dedication
She stood there stood still as if it was her statue
where to move where to go whom to chose
How can she leave her lover
who stood by her side in all the situations
Who cared for her when her parents were not there for her
who trusted in her when no one trusted her
But her father, her father, how can she forget him?
Who, who himself got wet, got wet in rain to save her from wetting down
just to put smile on her face, he celebrated her B'day wih great pomp
Even though he was in lack of money
he spared sleep to earn for her studies
how can she forget him?
Who cared, cared for her every smile
she raised her head to look once at both of them
Her father as before was standing affirm hiding his tears and his love for her
while her lover was wet wet with tears all over
And face was serene and calm as the graveyard
but his eyes,his eyes told her, told her that "he will always be with her
Be with her each and every decision," as if he was sure that whom she gonna choose.
when she found herself satisfied after looking at both of them
She wiped her tears with final determination
and made her steps forward
As she raised her first step their heartbeat arise,their heartrate got in their fullest speed as if to come out any moment
But unaware of their heartbeat she moved moved ahead
moved ahead reached her destiny,reached to father and sunk in his arms
Exchanged her affectionate feeling with her father,
and father exchanged her proud feeling of his blood and gave a jealous and humorous look to her lover
Heartbroken boy, the helpless boy tried to take her step forward but something held him,
somone stopped him
she held his hands and hugged him tightly with tears all over
He too, broke down crying and both lost themselves and the whole world on each others lips.
But wait is he her final destination
she left her father
What will this world say
what will the neighbours say
What will her jealous cousins say
no she couldn't do unjust to her father's love.
She took her steps back
back and reached where she was standing before
And glanced each of them one by one
and before anyone could sense what she was doing
She cut her veins and stabbed herself twice with the pocket knife of her father
All was again silent
The atmosphere was still hot
but she doesn't care as she lay peacefully
Peacefully in her grave.
