Beauty Unparalleled

 

“Sometimes in our lives, we live such lives, when living was more beautiful then passing strife.” The young girl of 14 looked up at nothing and said in a blank but beautiful voice. Though she was so little and romance was condemned in eyes of the school, she was passionate about the beauty of nature and was deep in romance with it. For her the beauty was not in the beautiful, it was something deep, something which only soul can feel and no one can see.

 

But passion was not allowed in the temple of education as it was; the girl was condemned for being passionate and thrown out of school; barred from seeking any education from anywhere on charges of falling in love. She was criticized by everyone and everyone did ask her the name of the cursed boy for whom she felt passion, but as tender as her soul was, she couldn’t even understand what was being asked.

 

In the end her family as well as she was given an exile. They were all brutally insulted and the girl was compared to harlots for she was showing no sign of remorse. She felt she was going on a holiday to her beloved Aunt Grace. She was joyous all through the ride. Little did she know what fate had designed her for no crime she did. She was left at aunt grace when mother father duo could not take it anymore and drowned them to death.

 

Beloved Aunt Grace and the little innocent girl waited for days but there was no sign of her parents. Aunt Grace was human too she couldn’t handle the disgrace that the little girl was. She immediately took proud in ‘charity’ she was doing in keeping the girl in her care.

 

The days the girl had to spend were like a battle with destiny herself. No matter how hard destiny tried, to play with her little soul, to weaken her resolve, to take away the beauty from her life, she remained a happy little child. It was unfortunate how even Gods could not understand how she saw the beauty.

 

Irritated by the happiness in everything she did, and jealous by the beauty she possessed, her aunt would punish her, keep her away from food and would make her do all the hard work. Her face got ashen but she remained beautiful, as she was beautiful somewhere deep within.

 

On the day after years, when she grew of a certain age; her aunt married her off. Her husband though unfortunate, and poor but was a lot more kind. He would make sure she was well fed and slept in a proper place.

 

Prosperity follows those with resolve. They worked hard together and got in a better living condition. They had children and money to feed them and the husband was satisfied.

 

Prosperity though has a deep relation with greed and greed has a relation with angst. The husband turned cruel and brutal. To top everything, he got to know how his wife with parents was given an exile. He could not take it any longer and threw the lady out, forbidding her to see ‘his’ children or to come near his house. Once again, the lady landed up in an exile.

 

She bowed down at her husband and kissed her children goodbye with her eternal contentment she walked through the streets. The news like fire was leaked everywhere and everyone wanted the ‘impure-harlot’ out of their clean and holy streets. They would say rather nasty things but the lady could find beauty in the curses they throw at her.

 

“Look at the harlot shamelessly smile.”

 

“I wonder how many men she had such that her husband could bear her any longer.”

 

“The poor creature, her husband was very kind but this witch did black-magic on him.”

 

“Aww my dear children, don’t go near the witch, she would eat you.”

 

Everyone glared harshly at her and when she didn’t leave town, they stoned her and she ran in the forest. She was happy and grateful to be given a chance to be with nature. She loved the trees, the river that flowed nearby but didn’t felt on her the evil’s eyes pry. She was taken away by a man, evil by nature who took away her virtue, that merciless creature.

 

First time in her life, the little soul cried. For then she was left without husband, child and her only beauty. Destiny smiled in triumph for it had won a battle. But was the battle worth winning she soon had to think. In trying to win a non-sense war she saw the mess she created. She bowed down in front of the lady ashamed and lost. For the lady still possess inner beauty while destiny lost it all.

 

No matter how hard she tried from then on, she could not do enough to make necessary amends. She did everything in power from giving her all she deserved but failed. In end the lady turned from beautiful while to beautiful pale. In end her body withered and died. Soon it had to decay. Destiny though sat there and cried till it was end of eternity.

 

The lady deserved it all and all did she get, as there is a beauty in pain as much as there is the beauty is happiness.

 

The little girl early in life realized, that happiness was hell and pain was paradise. As happiness bring contentedness and destroys the holy soul while pain glorifies the immortal polishes the beautiful soul.

 

And so she lived while taking the pain, while others took happiness from it. She knew she was benefited and remained in harmony.
