Short Story: The Vengeance Of A Daughter
Tears were rolling down from both of their eyes. Shibi and Sia were meeting each other after seven long years. They looked in each others’ eyes and remembered how much they loved each other.
Sia saw the flashback of Shibi scolding and kicking the guy who was torturing her. Whereas, Shibi remembered the days when she was miserably ill and Sia took total care of her.
Both gave a weak smile and tried to hug each other. However, the bars did not allow them to do so. Shibi was sentenced to life long imprisonment 7 years ago. As she killed her father by giving him poison.
Sia asked WHY?
Shibi without answering asked her that why didn’t she come all these years?
Sia: I was angry, sad, hurt! You left me all alone.
Shibi: I am sorry! There was not a single day when I didn’t miss you.
Sia: You crossed my mind every day too. I never thought anything like this could happen in our lives. You were my best friend, my twin sister, the best human being I knew. Then why did you do this?
Shibi sighed and said, “Dad was cheating on Mom for many years with many women.”
Sia was shocked “How do you know this?”
Shibi: Mom left a suicide note. I got it after two weeks of her suicide.
Sia: Why the hell you didn’t tell me this.
Shibi: It would have been hurtful for you
Sia: not more than this Shibi
Shibi: I am sorry! I lost my mind. I saw him happy with a woman and could not digest that.
Sia: You could have told me. We would have figured it out together. You ruined our lives. He has been freed but we are suffering.
Shibi: Please try to be happy. Let me suffer what I deserve.
Sia: How can I be happy?
A voice shouted as their meeting time was over. Sia had to go, thus she moved away with moist eyes.
Shibi: I love you!
Sia: I will miss you.
