Life is not always the way you wished it to be sometimes it is worst than you ever imagined and so was the life of Emily

It’s not you’ll always have a happy day. It’s not you’ll always have a day passed the way you want it to be. But, does that mean you’ll always have a day full of regrets. Does that mean always you’ll have to make that teddy or soft toy your cry buddy?

“My life is too hazardous to explain. It is said, “ The path of life is full of struggles. Every road will oppose your advancement. Every wind will push you back. Every light will illuminate to make you blind. But amidst all of this there will be only one place that will help you endure. YOUR HOUSE. But what if being in that place eats you up internally?”

Such were the thoughts of Emily, the only witness of the truth of the presumed ‘sweet family’. The family of The Watsons was considered to be ‘the ideal family’, from the mother-in-law and daughter-in-law sharing a bond stronger than the bond of blood; to Emily’s parents clinging to each other setting examples of true love; from the 12 year old Emily being loved like she was the first and last princess of the world to the entire family laughing and celebrating their love for each other till eternity. Who knew all of this was like the oasis of the Sahara?

Emily was optimistic, a girl with a strong personality, just like Captain Marvel of MC universe, she could, without any effort, spread love and happiness all around her,it was her god-gift; but as it is said, the person who is always at the highest of spirits is the one who is like the cloud that float o’er hills and vales, as stated by Wordsworth. She was eaten up from inside.

She had seen her mother crying, she had seen her parents fighting as if they would torment each other to death, she had seen the father, she loved the most, speak words which she couldn’t even imagine she would ever hear, even in her worse of worst nightmares !!!

Obviously, seeing your parents, rather deeply in love parents, fight all day long is not a pleasant sight to watch. WHAT DO YOU EVEN EXPECT HER TO FEEL EXCEPT LOATH FOR HERSELF,HER EXISTENCE,HER LIFE?

Certainly, this was not what the parents, the family or on a large scale God wanted to ‘ gift’ Emily. It was just her Fate or destiny like my grandma would say, “The fruit of her deeds of the previous birth.”

And here you, GLANCED OVER THE TRUTH OF EMILY? HER FATHER? HER PARENTS? THE FAKE ASSUMPTIONS?
