Serially lost- Chapter I

She was working very hard for her final exams. She knew she was going to make her father proud. Her father had full confidence in her. She was his pride. This was the time for her to show what she was capable of. She had her goals set. Her life was taking a positive turn but she had no clue how a diversion would take her to a different path.
A new life was about to start. She was following the path to her goals until she met him.
He came in her life as an adventure that she always wanted to experience. He came in her life as cocaine, she knew she shouldn’t taste it but she could not resist.
That spring was golden. He came in her life very fast and she fell for him. He made her life spark. He did things that she could not even imagine anybody doing for her. He was her hero. He was her first touch, her first kiss, her first glass of wine, her first slow romantic dance, her first hand in hand walk in a chilly morning, he was her first love. He gave himself to her completely and in return he just wanted her time that she obviously didn’t hesitate to give at all. She gave him every second of her three crucial months. She forgot about her goals. Her aim was fading day by day. Her perseverance for her goals was nowhere to be seen. He was her only priority. She was madly in love with him and for her everything else ceased to exist.
Tomorrow was her exam, she was sweating with fear, and flicking through the pages of her books. She had forgotten almost everything and was trying hard to cover all the topics in one night. She might have done that but the phone rang and the apprehension was vanished. He was coming to pick her up after exam, that’s all she was concerned about.
She had gone entirely bonkers. She was not in her senses. She was under his spell until she saw her father’s wet eyes for the first time. The result was announced. She could not believe she had done this. She was realising everything, she was very well aware that it was only her fault.
Her father didn’t say a thing but he had lost all the confidence he had in her. She cursed herself but she didn’t know what else to do. All the doors were closed now. Her path was lost and all of the above her confidence was lost.

  1. I really liked your chapter 1. As a teacher, as a parent and now as a grandparent of two wonderful boys, I am always concerned as to the challenges that the youth have to face as they grow up and search for their independence.
    I will be looking forward to Chapter 2.

    1. It’s hard to make kids understand that what parents are saying is for their own good. They do not understand or believe this until they become parents themselves. To some extent it’s not their fault but then whose fault is it? It’s complicated…
      Anyway, thank you so much for liking Chapter 1. 🙂

  2. I can relate to this! I think a lot of us have been there… nearing the end of school and getting to that age where you fall in love for the first time and everything else suddenly becomes irrelevant! I really liked that you turned it on its head and that it was a tale of the loss of confidence, at first it seemed as though it was going to be of lost love… it was a nice surprise.

    1. This is the first time I’m ever speaking about this thing and it still gives me goosebumps but to see people relating to this, I’m feeling a little relaxed. I’m ashamed to admit this but it’s actually making me feel better.
      Thank you for your words, Laura. 🙂
