My Story

“My mother died when I was born. I had no idea how she was. My father never looked or talked with me but fulfilled all my necessity. . My grandma often scolded me by telling I ate my mother. But in my father’s eyes ,there was no hatred but sorrow for me. My father brought my step mother when I was a child ,to take care of me. But she never cared about me and I was fully raised by my grandma. When I grew up my work was to take care my younger sibling. A few months ago my step mother brought a 40 years old man in our house; she put make up on my face and took me in front of him. I got to know that he came with a marriage proposal for me. I was scared like never before. The man left by assuring ,he will arrive with his family. I cried all night to my grandma, asked to do something ,so she could save me from that gigantic man. When their family arrived my father was at home. At first glance ,he was surprised which assured me he knew nothing. Before I understood anything ,he brought his big stick and started beating everyone, including my step mother. That day I got to know, my mother died because she was very young and was married at my age. As my father’s family forced my young mother to get married and thus I lost my mother during birth. Because of that my father could not meet his eyes with me. My father embraced me and said he will never let it happen with me ever. I forgave my step mother, if she did not do evil, how come I know I have been loved by my father this much.”
