Day 1 post – a 9-sentence fiction
It was a complete new experience for me, a new world of relationships and feelings made me a little scared that how am I going to manage all that in my new home. Every girl has to go through this after entering the matrimony, but in my case I felt a little tough as I was an overly pampered child by my parents and brothers.
The first morning in my new home (a lovely joint family) seemed to be like a show, where I was the center of attraction, all the experienced eyes were set on me and I had to perform according to the norms set for an ideal bride. So many tasks and just one me; I tried to spread myself thin and the result was a lot of mess. My lovely mom in law without criticizing me handled the situation and favored me for being a naive or inexperienced or sometimes forgetful… Ah! FORGETFUL… that sounded a savior expression for my new life.
I wanted to lean on that to lead a relaxed married life, and somehow I proved them that I am a real forgetful person and was quite happy that some shortcomings in my daily schedule would be obscured by my catch phrase, ‘ oh my forgetfulness’! Though I am a very sharp person, at that time to tackle the situation I got myself trapped in such circumstances that now people in my family started taking advantage of my forgetfulness (which does not exist).
I know that now they are playing with me, but I can’t say anything because I started the game and I have to be on the ground just for the sake of that game. Now I have planned to get rid of my own created trap and prove to my family that I am eating almonds and doing exercises to sharpen my memory…. coz I really want to be free of this never existing forgetfulness.
