I am going to tell you a story, which is true. And here is goes:

Elizabeth was very exicted, she was going to turn fourteen. She could just see the new changes in her appearance, locution and thinking. Elizabeth was a sober, simple and a very different girl. Jessica was her best friend and she always supported her no matter what the consquences were. It was 5th of July and Alas, Elizabeth blew her fourteen candles. She was leading her life the way she used to. She was very fond of chatting and had a male net friend whom she did not even consider of great importance, though she respected him alot.

Few days passed and somehow they started to talk on the phone. Elizabeth's family had no information about this boy, moreoever Elizabeth's family was conservative and hated if she talked to any. Elizabeth developled feelings for this boy deep inside, she did not even know. His name was the only thing she knew. Ryan. One night Ryan proposed Elizabeth, she was speechless and accepted it. They did not actually care about eachother in the beginning, but after six months they got to know they were made for eachother. Still sadly, Elizabeth was a mature girl, but silly enough for not asking his age or anything in these six month and now she did not even care. Ryan being a sensible, chivalrous man, thought that this girl might be in her early 20's. Wow!

Furthermore, One day Elizabeth's family got to know about the hidden secret of hers and she was pertrified. Elizabeth tried to explain her mother, father and everyone. But they played games with her and did not accept the boy! And you know why? Because, Elizabeth's family talked with Ryan on the phone and they got to know, he's five years elder than Elizabeth, moreover not of their society, not as rich as they are and the biggest problem, that he does not live in a good area like they do. High society people you know.

Therefore, Elizabeth tried really hard to do something and make her family accept but they never did. Everything was hard for her. Her day to day increasingly feelings for Ryan could not help her stop from talking to him. And even Ryan tried alot to convince them. Ryan only wanted the girl, nothing else, he kept on speaking for himself, that he does not live in a good area but he eats well and lives a life better than the rest. No! But status was all they needed for their girl.

Then, poor Elizabeth was broken into pieces, with her omnious family problems, skeptical eyes over her. It killed her inside.

This dear girl is now going to turn sweet sixteen, but still they both are together. And Elizabeth's family thinks they are not together anymore. But Ryan is actually working hard each day and night to come to Elizabeth's status and take her away forever in his arms.

Do you think it is fair? Though, Elizabeth regrets her age. But now she is all alone. Things have changed for her. Do you think she has really made a big mistake, so big to be punished like this?
