Who was wrong??

You or me

Who was selfish??

You or me

Should I deserve this level of punishment??.........

 

 

I am Charles Wilson, father of Mia Wilson, my lovely daughter. After the death of my wife, Sara, Mia was everything for me. She was simply the rest of my life. For the 1st time someone who made me realized that life is so sensible and beautiful which can’t be completed until there is love and happiness. Starting from morning till night I cared her as a mother. I was so involved with her that I felt like every second without her is hard for me to live. She was an intelligent girl and good in studies; especially her geography teacher liked her a lot.

 

Mia: Dad, today our geography sir told us about earthquake. It’s so terrible and devastating.

 

Charles: Yeah really devastating. Just a crack on earth disturbs everything. By the way I want to meet with your sir.

 

After few days, both went to school to meet him. But he had left the school permanently.

 

Charles: It’s my bad luck. I didn’t get time to meet him in so many months. May be next time.

 

Things went as usual. I was very happy and every moment of my life was becoming more and more enjoyable.

 

AFTER ONE MONTH……….

 

That evening I went to market, leaving Mia at home because she had to do her homework. After an hour when I reached home, I was shocked. Mia was missing and a letter was there in her table. Everything of her was vanished and the most surprising my wife’s photos and souvenirs were also gone. Without wasting more time in thinking, I just went through that letter.

 

LETTER………….

 

It’s John, Mia’s geography teacher. There are many things which I 1st want to make you clear. I and Sara loved each other a lot. She never wanted to marry you, but she was married forcibly because you were a rich, well established man and I was an ordinary school teacher. It’s very difficult for her to forget me, but still she remained within her limits and contacted me seldom as a friend. But you were such a greedy man that after marriage you didn’t even care for her and felt her lonely. Night and night she waited for you, but you didn’t even give a damn. Even if you didn’t attend her during pregnancy. I was there to take care of her. To avoid her loneliness, she began to meet me. She was always in depression and pain. Not only you tortured Sara, but even Mia too. When Mia started going to school, you never picked her once. You never talked to her properly. In simple way, you didn’t do anything as expected by a father. You had made their life miserable and I didn’t want Sara to get destroyed under your shade. That night it was a lie that Sara had committed suicide and that suicide letter was fake. But as expected by us, we were aware of the thing that what you’re gonna do next? You had reputation. So before this thing could spread as fire, you bribed media to stop these because you were afraid of the fact that people would doubt you for this. Inspite of knowing this lied suicidal attempt which was truth for you, you carried out your profession as usual. But Mia’s constant crying  for missing her mom’s presence melted your heart and showed you the path of love. Just an innocence of a kid made you realized the pain of missing someone dearer. And you began to feel ashamed of yourself. But that’s the lesson I wanted you to teach. I wanted to stab you in back when you would actually realize what love and care is? It’s like the same way you stabbed Sara and Mia when they needed you the most, the time when she loved you the most by sacrificing her love. You loved your daughter afterwards but Mia had always feelings for her mom and me who cared her the most when she needed us the most.

 

Like in earthquake, even if a single crack destroys everything. Now it’s your turn to feel an earthquake in your life. Everytime when you remembered your mistakes (cracks), that every second of your life will pass through an earthquake which will destroy you mentally and physically.

 

Me, Sara and Mia are living happily now.

Goodbye!

 

 

AFTER SOME DAYS…………

 

Dead body of Charles was found from a lonely and dark room with a letter left behind.

 

Who was wrong??

You or me

Who was selfish??

You or me

Should I deserve this level of punishment??.........
