It's a story about a girl. A girl who was smart yet humble, strong yet vulnerable, veracious yet kind, and a glass ceiling breaker; was getting ready to take on the world.
She loved to read and write; bake and feed; loved to dream and talk about life.
Her imagination knew no bounds.
"So, what kind of topic you want to work on our magazine?" the editor asked during her job interview.
"Science Fiction or politics!" said her thrilled voice.
The editor frowned upon her, "Are you sure? As far as I know, girls are more into writing about lifestyle, art or sometimes movie industry ."
She smiled and said, "Then you don't know much about girls".
Her job interview ended there. They didn't call her anymore.
"Why did you say that? Or you could have just said that you would take whatever topic they would offer. You are always very opinionated", her brother said.
"I didn't like them either. It's a good thing they didn't call me because I wouldn't go there. I don't want to work under a boss like that. I'll find my right place in the right time," she said confidently.
The girl didn't have many friends. Only a handful of them, but all of them were close to her heart. Her 22nd birthday was coming up. She loved her birthday, she still does. "It's my day!" she used to say, "On this day I do whatever my heart wants". But this time her friends decided to throw her a surprise birthday party. Weeks after weeks they remained busy to plan her surprise party, and she didn't have a clue.
So, the special day arrived, she started "her" day by praying; she loved to pray, it's the way of her talking to God.
And then she put on a nice purple dress which she gifted herself for her birthday. On her every birthday she gifts herself. Sometimes it's a dress, sometimes it's a book or sometimes it's just some baked cookies. But most of the time it's altogether.
After putting on that nice purple dress she stepped outside, soaked herself in sunlight and went to the nearby dessert shop to have some cake.
Then she came back home, curled herself up in a blanket and turned on Netflix.
Morning passed by, afternoon passed by, the sun was about to set, then her bestfriend called her up and told her to come to her house as soon as possible, "It's an emergency", her bestfriend said to her. "On the way", hurriedly she dressed up and got into a taxi.
