A Girl Vs Her Fate (Part I)

She didn’t live her childhood fully. She had struggled. But she grew up. She had seen things which children of that age don’t see. She had been through those sort of rough times which I can’t even imagine. But still, she kept going. She came to a city where she got a small work. She managed to get a single rental room. She was having horrible days but she would smile every time.

Sometimes, when you are in deep trouble, fate offers you someone who can support you. Her circumstances were tough but fate wanted something else. One day, she happened to meet a boy who had a thing that she cared about the most. The thing was the heart.

She started practicing for the competition and she had to make it because she wanted to. She poured every juice from her soul into her practice. She quit the job so that she could get more time to work on her speeches. He supported her. He helped her in every possible way.

She gave her name for the competition and the date was coming nearer day by day. She knew that it was not going to be easy but it was nothing in front of what she had been through. Everything was smooth but fate came again to show its ‘cruelty’. The boy was out somewhere because of his work. He promised her to come with her in the competition.
