His bride

His bride

A Story by Najam Us Saher
"

Story about a girl who meets the wife of a person whom she loved once.

"

      It was today that she was going to meet the wife of the person she loved once. She tried not to express any supressed feelings in front of her as she didn't want to cause any troubles for the couple. She moved on and it was a long time ago that she loved him. She always wondered and thought about his future bride when she was sure that she wasn't the one. She prayed and dreamt his happiness and today all of his wishes came true. She wanted to be the reason behind his smile and dreamt their future together but it was not in their fate to be together. There she was, his bride sitting gracefully with a smile.
      Many thoughts ran in her mind and she didn't know how to start a conversation.
"I have heard a lot about you" said his bride.
She was satistifed thinking she said something and broke that awkward silence. 
"Yeah I am well known in my family and friends" she replied.
"How are your studies going on?" 
"It couldn't be any good I was ranked a topper in previous exams" she said with confidence.
"What about you?" She asked her.
"I've discontinued my studies a long time back" said his bride with a feeling of regret.
"That's so sad to hear. What are your hobbies?" She asked his bride.
"Finding happiness in whatever I do" she replied.
"That's an answer I've never heard of before. I am good at sports too whenever you are free we could have a game together." She said to his bride.
"I am not really good at sports" she replied.
"Do you like shopping?" She asked.
"I am happy that my basic needs gets fulfilled" replied his bride. 
She was a bit annoyed by her replies thinking that they don't have anything in common to talk about.
"You don't study, you are not interested in sports either you are not a shopaholic I wonder what interests you. I am better than you" she said expressing her anger.
"I am the wife of the person you loved once" was the reply of his bride.
Hearing this her pride was scattered, deep sense of regret and guilt filled her heart and she shed a tear.
