Jake was the CEO of a great electronic company famous in USA. He was a billionaire. Moreover he was extremely handsome which attracted girls pretty well to him. His red cheeks, fair face, golden hair attracted both ugly and beautiful girls to him. He was a great man but had committed a crime in life.

On 7 January 2006 when it was the date of his engagement with his girlfriend Amy, he killed Amy's mom. Amy's mom didn't want her daughter and Jake to get married. So, in order to remove her from their way Jake killed Amy's mother.

As soon as Amy came to know about this, first of all she decided to kill Jake but thought then it could prove to be dangerous. So, she pretended to marry him and hence approved her fake marriage with him to take her revenge.

So now, Jake's wife is Amy and they have a lovely child namely, Mia. Their girl's cuteness is overloaded and she loved her dad even more than her mom.

Jake loved Amy really but Amy fakely, in order to take the revenge of her mother's death. Even Amy had another intention. She wanted to take all the his property from him.

Hence love is never true. It always has some intentions. True love never exists for Amy in reality now. All she loves Jake is not real. It's all about fake love.

So one day when Jake was waiting in the,railway station for his wife who had gone to her maternal aunt's house Amy

came in decided something.

Her decisIon was to kill Jake but not that, on some other day with some plan. Her plan was to trap Jake in her love and then kill him.

One day Jake came to St. Michaelis school in order to give a speech to the sttudents and advised the principal to group the students on basis of their ability..

But, We must have seen that that often grouping on the basis of academic performance of students is carried out in schools. This creates a mental pressure for those students who score poorly in exams. This grouping may also take the life of a child as he may think that he's life isn't worthy. He may think that he is a medium student hence his living might not raise up the heads of his parents. Also some schools create extra classes to teach in advance to the good students but not to the medium ones. This is just unfair. Therefore steps must be taken by each and every school to treat each and every student equally like that as democracy does to our country because this mentality of schools may depress a medium student and hence bring suicidal thoughts to his mind. He might require medicines due to mental illness and depression.These severely bad moral lessons if taught in schools then students might raise their names but not humanity.

Nowadays students have even been divided on the basis of their race. The black students have been divided to one classroom and the white ones to another. Therefore stop grouping and hence stop children from getting depressed.

The principal agreed and grouped the students.

Jewellery theft is quite often in urban areas especially in this lockdown time where people are jobless. They don't have any money now. For that reason they snatch the jewellery off a woman's neck. Then the jewellery is sold in market to earn some money. Some people are also arrested for this reason. Jewellery, an extremely beautiful ornament shining with lustre actually attracts millions of people which on selling one can gain thousands of money. This is actually a crime but the jobless people have no other option than this. They don't tend to steal as previously they had good jobs and had enough money to buy essential but now they don't have any job. This also creates a sense of depression among people who are jobless. But jewellery theft is not the correct way of earning money. Jewelleries like gold rings, bangles, bracelets, necklaces, lockets etc are even stolen from homes nowadays very cleverly even when if the people are aware of this. Some thugs scare people with guns and steal away their gold ornaments.| Some jewelleries are sold from the market itself by gunning down the people.

This way Jake too stole jewelleries due to lockdown.

On other hand the principal who had grouped students again reintroduced equality among his students.

Then comes Amy's plan to kill Jake. She took Jake and Amia for an outing.

Over there she tied Jake and decided to burn him alive. Then a pretty girl named Leah saved Jake and married him to save him from Amy.

One day Jake and Amy were talking. She said, "When my sisters and I were little, my mom read us a book called I Love You the Purplest. The plot follows two young boys who ask their mother the ultimate question: “Who do you love best?” She responds that she loves one the bluest and the other the reddest.

The message of the book was that love comes in different colors, or sometimes flavors or textures or sizes. There are thousands of ways it can manifest. It’s not a matter of “best,” and it doesn’t fit inside a one-size-fits-all box. However, the stereotypical romantic version, wherein two people meet and fall in love, has been hyped by popular culture to the point of becoming formulaic and feeling, at times, exclusionary of other types or pathways.

To conclude “Love Month” at Man Repeller, we’re shining a spotlight on those other types and pathways, from romantic love that blossomed in unique circumstances to sibling love, filial love and even animal love. The stories couldn’t be more different, but the common threads that tie them together are

manifold — grace, sacrifice and selflessness, among others…but I don’t want to give too much away"

Jake loved the story too much as he loved Leah but Leah swore she would never cheat Jake.

Jake said, " Can you tell me another love story?"

"Yeah, sure", Amy said." It is the year 1975, when Charlotte Von Sledvin, a 19-year-old student of a Swedish royal family, travels to India to get a portrait made by a gifted artist. The artist was born into a poor Indian family of the lowest caste, also known as the “untouchables.” Despite the incredibly difficult circumstances, the artist named Pradyumna Kumar Mahanandia had gained an outstanding reputation for being a gifted painter. His reputation led Charlotte Von Sledvin to travel all the way to India to get her portrait done.By the time the portrait was finished, the two had fallen in love. Pradyumna was fascinated with Charlotte’s beauty. Never before had he seen a more beautiful woman from the Western world. He gave his best to capture all her beauty in the portrait, yet never fully succeeded. Nonetheless, the portrait was magnificent and Charlotte fell for his simplicity and his beautiful character. Because of him, she spontaneously decided to stay longer in India. Out of a couple of days became weeks and then even months. The two had fallen so deeply in love that they decided to get married according to traditional Indian rituals.

Unfortunately, the time came when Charlotte had to leave again in order to complete her studies in London. Thousands of miles separated the two but their feelings for each other never changed. They stayed in contact through letters, which they exchanged almost weekly with each

other. Naturally, the newlyweds terribly struggled with the great distance between each other. Charlotte offered her husband to buy him air tickets, which he refused. He had not only decided to complete his studies first, but he had also set his mind on reuniting with the love of his life on his own terms. He even made her the promise that he would do anything he can to see her again.

After Pradyumna had finished his studies, he took all his possessions and sold them. Unfortunately, the money he earned didn’t even come close to a flight ticket. All he could afford was a cheap and used bicycle. Many would have been greatly disappointed, some would have even given up. But not Pradyumna. Instead of allowing the difficult circumstances to stop him from seeing his beloved wife again, he met the decision to use what he had in order to see her again. Nothing could stop him from reuniting with his wife, even if that meant an exhausting bicycle ride half around the world.

His decision was the beginning of a bicycle journey from India to the Western world. Pradyumna took all his paintings and brushes along with him in order to financially support his endeavor. His voyage led him through eight countries and took more than four months. But eventually, he arrived at Charlotte’s hometown in Sweden and finally saw her again. From then on, the two did never leave each other’s side for too long.

This made Jake very happy which took life out of him and asked her to tell another story by taking him in her lap.

She said," When Susann saw Matthias Steiner, an Austrian weightlifter, during a contest on TV, she immediately

became interested in him. She was so determined to meet the athlete that she kept asking the TV commentators for his contact details for so long until they finally gave in. Once she had his email address, she contacted him and they both agreed to meet each other. It was love at first sight and the two married not long after meeting for the first time.

The young weightlifter moved for his wife to Germany and applied for the German citizenship. He was so in love with her that he also promised her that he would one day bring her an Olympic medal. Matthias Steiner was determined to live up to his promise, but things came differently. In 2007, his beautiful wife Susann died in a car accident. It was an unimaginable tragedy for the young man. But he remembered what he had promised his wife. It was the promise that kept him going through this difficult time. He became so determined that he was finally selected to become part of the German Olympic team at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

During the contest, Matthias Steiner was faced with incredibly challenging competitors. He had three weightlifting attempts but failed in two. Seeing his chances of ever reaching the podium diminishing, he put everything he had left into the third and final attempt. And as luck would have it, he managed to lift the incredibly heavy weight, which won him the Olympic gold medal. The scene when he was awarded the medal was broadcasted to millions of viewers all around the world and Steiner simply couldn’t help himself but broke out into tears while holding a picture of his wife into the cameras." This brought tears to his eyes and he started crying and slept into his wife's lap. That night he had

a peaceful sleep.Hence as his business was going down, he again stole jewelleries of women.

But Leah made him understand the matter. She advised him to run his job properly instead of stealing other's jewellery.

That night she told read him out a story about his fault..

She said," Sanya couldn’t take her eyes off Dhara’s stamp collection. Sanya-I wish I had a similar stamp book. It was break. She couldn’t stop thinking about the stamps. Sanya-I’ll be right back after drinking some water! After drinking water, Sanya came back instead of joining her friends. Sanya–Wow! The class is empty! She went near Dhara’s bench,tore pages from the book. Sanya-She won’t even know that the pages are missing. Just then,she heard the sound of footsteps. She broke into a sweat and quickly went to her friends, outside. After the break,everyone returned to the class. Dhara-Where have my stamps gone?I had left them right here. Dhara-Madam,my stamps are missing.I had left them right here on my bench. Now,Sanya began to feel frightened. Teacher-Listen everyone,Dhara’s stamps have been stolen.Does anyone know about this? No one replied. Teacher-Whoever has taken the stamps,return them.Else,I’ll check your bags. Sanya hid them in her pocket. Ma’am checked all the bags.When Sanya’s bag was being checked, Sanya-I don’t know anything about the stamps. It seems like

madam is suspicious of me. What if the sound of footsteps that I heard was hers? Sanya could hardly sleep that night. Sanya-What if someone finds out?What if I am expelled from school? She dreamt that there were many thefts in school and she was being accused for all of them. Sanya-I want to tell madam the truth. The next day,Sanya tearfully returned the stamps to madam and confessed everything to her.Sanya-From the moment I stole,I felt burdened that, 'I have committed a sin.' I won’t repeat this again. Teacher-Don’t worry at all. I shall never let anyone know where the stamps were found. After admitting the truth, Sanya felt relieved. From that day onwards, she forgot to steal!"

She then started telling another story to make Jake understand.

She said, " Ken is sitting by himself on a bench in the park. He is not very happy. He does not have a laptop, and he really needs one. He has an old, slow computer that does not work very well for all his university projects. He is frustrated because he does not have enough money to buy himself a laptop.

He stands up and starts to walk through the park, feeling unhappy. Soon he sees an old lady sitting on another bench. She has a beautiful new laptop next to her purse on the bench. Ken looks at her. "Now, why does she need a laptop?" he thinks to himself. "She is an old lady. She does not need it for anything important. Ken thinks about all his important college work. He really needs that laptop. He knows he can just grab it and walk away. The old lady will probably not even notice. Suddenly, a dog starts barking loudly. The old lady looks to see what is happening. Ken takes this perfect

chance – he grabs the laptop and quickly walks away.

The next day, Ken tries to use the laptop for a project, but he feels terrible. He cannot even open it because he feels so bad about stealing it. He uses his old computer, but there is the laptop on the desk next to him. He cannot even look at it because he feels so guilty.

When his friend comes over that afternoon, Ken tries to hide the laptop. He does not want anyone to know that he stole it. He feels guilty and embarrassed. As the days pass, Ken becomes grumpy. He is always in a bad mood, and he does not work hard on his university projects.

Ken finally decides he cannot take it anymore. He goes back to the park hoping to find the old lady and return her laptop. He waits and waits, but of course she does not arrive. On the way home, he donates the laptop to a community center for children. He even gives them some of his old books.

Ken realizes that stealing the laptop was not worth it. When you steal something, it loses its value. Only the rightful owner can use their things happily. A thief cannot. Ken knows he cannot steal and be happy."

Jake couldn’t believe what a terrible sin he committed.

So he donated the jewellery to the police station and asked them to return them to their right ful owners.

Then the bond between Jake and Leah strengthened. Finally Jake proposed Leah truly from his heart and kissed her on her wrists. Finally they married again and became real couple.

So now Jake's company's condition improved has the lockdown was lifted now, they had a lovely child named Mia. She slowly grew up and got married with a handsome guy named Jimmy. Then their love story began. Soon, Mia got pregnant. She and Jimmy were blessed with a beautiful looking boy named Jim

Each night Mia read out stories to Jim

She said, " Once upon a time, in a desert far away, there was a rose who was so proud of her beautiful looks. Her only complaint was growing next to an ugly cactus.

Every day, the beautiful rose would insult and mock the cactus on his looks, all while the cactus remained quiet. All the other plants nearby tried to make the rose see sense, but she was too swayed by her own looks.

One scorching summer, the desert became dry, and there was no water left for the plants. The rose quickly began to wilt. Her beautiful petals dried up, losing their lush color.

Looking to the cactus, she saw a sparrow dip his beak into the cactus to drink some water. Though ashamed, the rose asked the cactus if she could have some water. The kind cactus readily agreed, helping them both through the tough summer, as friends."

Stories after stories she told her boy and the little boy slept in her lap.

And then she slept.

There fore Jake and Leah got old. Jake gave his handed over business to his son in law.

Finally one day Jake got a cerebrum attack and got paralysed and soon died. Six months after his death, Leah died due to a massive heart attack. That day was the worst day for Mia. Mia then told a story to her little boy that her mother told her. She said, " There once was a king named Midas who did a good deed for a Satyr. And he was then granted a wish by Dionysus, the god of wine. For his wish, Midas asked that whatever he touched would turn to gold. Despite Dionysus’ efforts to prevent it, Midas pleaded that this was a fantastic wish, and so, it was bestowed. Excited about his newly-earned powers, Midas started touching all kinds of things, turning each item into pure gold. But soon, Midas became hungry. As he picked up a piece of food, but it had turned to gold in his hand. Hungry, Midas said," Perhaps this was not such an excellent wish after all! "She told him the story's moral and hence moral stories changed her son's life forever..

During Jim's adolescent age, his life was very disciplined. But soon after losing his parents he got addicted to alcohol. He was really depressed after losing his parents. He could hear his parents everywhere he went. Soon he married and had a baby girl named Maria. On her first birthday he gifted her a beautiful good looking doll. One day, Maria was sitting in her room and was watching the television. Suddenly her mom knocked upon the door and entered her room with a gift. Maria was so excited. She became curious to open it. By the time she had opened it she saw her favorite doll in the box that she had lost while shifting to the apartment she was living today. Maria used to play with her doll everyday and by now it served her as the role of her entertainer. But her happiness did not last for long. Soon both her parents passed away due to a car accident. Maria was devastated. By now her doll was her only companion.

One day again when Maria was going to her school, something strange happened to her. Suddenly she saw her doll which she had kept on her bed, infront of her. She screamed her life out of her. She immediately understood that something was wrong with the doll. She decided to throw it as a trash. But then after school when she returned home. She saw her doll infront of her on her bed.

She shouted so loudly as if she had seen someone who had taken her life out. Then suddenly her heart started beating loudly when she saw the ceiling of her apartment. "We need your soul" - whisperings came to her ears. The little girl was extremely frightened. Hence she took the doll and jumped off the apartment.

Then suddenly her eyes opened. She saw that she was on the bed and was sweating. It was just a dream. Neither did she lose her parents nor had she a doll like that. Hence she woke up peacefully, brushed her teeth and hence followed her everyday routine. Her parents went near her and tried to soothe her about her dream. She was upset from her mental sides after seeing the dream. One day her mother read out four stories to her about overcoming depression. Gervase struggled with depression twice in her life — both dealt with life and death.

The first time was after her brother died, and the second was after she gave birth to a child, who is now 14 months old. Her brother’s death resonated with her entire family, but it really hit her hard. It was a sign that everything doesn’t last forever, she said.

“The death of my brother changed how I prioritized people and events moving forward," Gervase wrote in a blog post. "I skimmed the fat from my life and made peace with my own demons."

Then, she met Kevin, and the two had a child in 2013 — Aria Rose. Her daughter's birth also spawned depression for Gervase. It wasn’t so much having a daughter that made her depressed, but rather her having to re-evaluate who she was as a person. She could no longer be the partier she once was. She had to be responsible.

But soon, little Aria helped Gervase rise up and overcome her depression.

“Aria is my compass,” Gervase said in her blog post. “My ‘why.’ She is the reason I quit my sales job in February 2014 and went full time as a life coach. My intuition would not be quieted. And I deeply respect that little voice. My life's experiences have taught me a powerful lesson about the undervalued strength to be found in our raw human connections our relationships.”

She also told Deseret News National that yoga helped her overcome her struggles, too: “Outside exercise is really the secret key to battling depression, as it gets endorphins pumping, which are needed,”

"Now second story!"

She said," Kate MacHugh is now 25. She’s an author and clinician.

But she only got to where she is now by overcoming depression as a teenager.

MacHugh said she was “harassed, humiliated and cyberbullied,” during her teenage years, leading her to go from being a happy and vibrant youngster to someone more angry and “sullen.” Once she became a different person, she slowly slipped into the murky waters of depression.

“It was the lowest I have ever felt in my life," she said to the National.

But everything changed once she went to college. The peers who had put her down and bullied her within the walls of high school were long gone, and she could finally start focusing on what made her unique and special. Instilling confidence in herself was what got her past depression and on a path to success, she said.

“I worked really hard to change the messages in my head,” MacHugh said. “I was led to believe that I was ugly, worthless, and disgusting. I internalized these messages and they became part of my identity. I began to tell myself

that I was smart, loved and beautiful."

"Now third story! Okay dear?"

Maria said, "Yes mom."

She said, " Jay Lowder overcame depression by finding God.

He was 21 when everything went south. He was dumped, he lost his car and he found himself unemployed all at once. Things began to spiral out of control from there. Depression settled in and Lowder turned to the bottle as a source of escape.

Things took a dark turn for Lowder. But with the help of his roommate, and religion, he overcome his struggle with depression.

He was invited to an event hosted by a preacher, and it was there that he rediscovered his faith in God and religion. It has helped him grow his faith as an evangelist.He’s looking to spread that message now across the world.

"Now the last one!"

She said, " There was a time when Ingrid couldn’t get out of bed. She didn’t feel inspired.

Though many would say she is jovial and happy-go-lucky, there was a sudden change for her. She would just start crying in the middle of the day, and she didn’t know why: “I could feel that my hormones were taking me into a very dark place,” she said.

She turned to yoga and exercise for help, but that did very little in aiding her: “I would leave class feeling depleted and still sad,” she said.

So how did she overcome depression? She spoke with her nutritionist, who told her to start taking a natural supplement that helped her balance out her hormones and stray away from the darker emotions."

Hearing the stories Maria slept into her mama's lap. She was very happy and got inspired by the stories. She was very motivated by their bravery and it was her mother who helped her to overcome her depression. So, no one is more than a mother. It is only a mother who heals her child. Maria is very lucky to have such a mother who read out four stories which had only motivated her.
