Every day the same mail.
Every day it landed in same folder : SPAM
And still she replied to it, saved it separately and felt happy to get that.
After all, it was from HIS id.
It was her only excuse to mail him.
Even if her mails just said “Stop sending such bad links”

My hard realized lesson for this week again is something i learn, forget and need to re-learn in life :
“YOU don’t DESERVE,if you beg”
Be it love, money,success or just anything you have to beg for, realize you don’t deserve that ! Maybe you deserve better or maybe do not deserve it at that particular time, Bottom line : The effort not worth it !
Remember this and you might be happy most times

She badly wanted to break away from the negative feelings inside her ! When all looked calm on surface, only she knew of the turmoil that plundered her heart every time she saw him. And that was daily ; she was married to him; to this fucking bastard who sold her to strangers last night ! She knew what was to be done; she sold herself again ; this time on highest price available; and kicked him out of the house. He showed the way, she will follow the same. She prepared to kill herself every night to make his living worse !
“I will abstain from sex”he decided,another plot to please Gods,if any of them ever did listen to prayers. Needless to say he didn’t like this but anything for chance to greatness !
“What now !!”, muttered god, “should some one with halo on head go to show him way ?? what does he dream then ?”

With gentle steps she entered home,praying not to be seen by dad.
“I saw you.Learning to ride on the beach” she suddenly heard him shout.
“I was just..” she tried to speak in vain.
“Do you have any idea how it looked ? a girl of your age doing something like this ??”
“But I only ..” she was cut off again.
“Vulgar !! that’s the word. you hear me !!”
And this went on till she started to cry hard and promised not to ride again. Her brother never even tried to learn and she actually rode it. But she knew she would not get any praise for that.
The bicycle was anyway sold next day.

She loved her “long umbrella” ! she did not know why people called them docks. Every time it rained, she came running to the docks and spent hours under them. No one knew she feared rains on her head. People would laugh at it. Wasn’t she supposed to be unaffected !! She was a fish afterall.

She saw him come to his usual place in the balcony with a book, look no where but for his cushion, sit and start reading. She had been waiting for him for about half aan hour now, but wasn’t yet sure how to approach.
She stood there for another five minutes, in the balcony overlooking his, before she mustured the courage to say “excuse me, what book will that be ?”.
He looked startled,as his eyes set on her. she continued “the one in your hand .. what book is that ?”
He smiled and replied shyly “Harry Potter and the dark Prince.. I. uh .. had nothing else to read today. Didn’t get time to go to the library you see.”
She smiled understandingly, though she did not understand why any one would be ashamed of reading Harry Potter. She herself had read the whole series thrice.
“Do you read too ?”
“Yes, a lot actually. And i have read this one too”
“Still you could not recognize this one !! It isn’t that dark under the street light i assume”, he gave a meaningful look.
“You are right. I asked about the book just to initiate a conversation. Actually I needed a favour…”
“Sure, how can i be of help miss..”
“Hi, Sahil here. Now what can i do for you Riya?”
“I am out of tea powder. I assume you have some tea powder at your place. If you could ..”
“Sure you can get that,but on one condition .. I want to have a cup too”
“Done” she beamed,”let me fetch a bowl”
“sure, And i will get you my mug and the tea powder of course”
