"Maria, have you finished packing your books or are they still overflowing from the cupboard? And I already told you to sell away the books you have finished reading to the Public Library...", my mother called out from the living room, where she was busy with packing the base studded with pebbles.
" Y--y-yes, mom!", I replied as I reached for the bluish black coloured book, titled in red font, "Murder On The Orient Express", by Agatha Christie. Ah! It was such a difficult job!
Everyone including my little brother was busy in packing things. I peeped through the door to see what Shalin, my bro was doing. I could not help smiling as I saw him putting his toy Mercedes into the carton box.
Finally the packing of the goods was over and a big tempo stopped in front of the gate.
All of us were excited to go in the new villa, bought by our father. It was a really beautiful Villa with a big garden. The grass was covered with the tender dews, and the blossom trees were too young.
We stepped in. We were so tired that we directly got to sleep... me and my mom on the foamy upper part which we lay on the bed. The bed wasn't re-mentled. Shalin was on the smaller sofa, and dad was on the longer sofa. We loved our new villa.
Days passed by and everything was going smooth. Soon I completed my high school, and took admission in a Medical College for first year. My brother was no longer so little. He had entered in the high school now.
I entered in the "youth" stage of my life, unaware of my beauty...my friends tried to bring home to me, the point of how beautiful I was. But I never cared much about it. I loved to dwell in the world of my dreams...music and art were my favourites and being a worshipper of literature, books fascinated me.
I never spent time in styling my long hair...it always looked like a golden plated snake rolling along my back and down my waist and a little below the hips. I am not boasting about my looks...but it was a matter-of-fact, and perhaps my fair colour was just because of my grandma's genes. As for my figure, I didn't like to eat much so I was thin.
