She screamed and wept. She became numb to the outer world. His memories haunted her every second. Life after this held no meaning to her. Her bed felt cold at night.
 
 
 Darkness became her companion. Loneliness strangled her.
 
 Riyadh was gone. Gone for ever. 2 minutes of his accident changed her life. That night before their wedding.
 
Life has taken an hopeless turn like it must not happen in anyone's wildest dreams.
 
Looking at her golden laced lehenga designed intricately for her wedding pricked her more.
 
 Pain became hundred fold every passing moment.
 
People said "Gosh, it did not happen after wedding and she still had a life.
Her stars were lucky as she escaped from being a widow".
 
Some showered her with endless sympathy which she hated more than her pain.
 
 Ria did not utter a word  for days.
 
Until one day, when Sumi visited her.
 
 An empathetic soul like Sumi could bring some change gradually in Ria's life.
 
Sumi heard her heart out, listened to her pain, her vents, as it is without complaining. She understood Ria from her point, became sensitive to her feelings. She did not sympathize the situation. Sumi did all that was needed to bring some light in her dark life.
 
 A friend like her was all that Ria needed to instill courage to move on.

A:Accept life as it comes.

B: Brave is beautiful.

C:Confidence
 
D:Death

  2. My first visit here Rashmi. Good story. Saddddd though. And yes Empathy is one quality which puts a person apart from everyone else. I always think there is such a need to inculcate this and be truly sensitive.
