Shaheen (Part 9)
Shaheen passed 8th but her marks were going down now. She had left interest in study. What is the benefit of her study? She couldn’t get admission in her favorite school. If she will top then also she will be forced to marry a stranger and left her wishes about career. These thoughts were stopping her from her study and even to try to fulfill her ambitions. Her parents started to worry because they were thinking high on her but Shaheen marks hinted to take extra care for Shaheen. Shaheen assured them that she will work hard but it was not full truth. Previous incidents had broken her will.
She was in 9th and her section was changed by school authority. She got new friends, she met with Tanya and became good friend with her. They spends their days with enjoy and fun. Boys were still interested in Shaheen but she was not interested. Sometimes she was surprised why boys like her? What is her main attraction but she didn’t find any. She didn’t like her body at all. “I am thin and my height is also not good, even my friends make fun related to my height sometimes then why boys like me so much?” This was the question she asked her many times. But there was one thing about her body which she also love very much her hair. Shaheen had long heavy black hair. They were long enough to touch her thighs. She was really careful for them. These were a problem also because she was getting problem to wash so long hairs so her mom usually helped her to wash them. But still she loved them and it was the main attraction of her beauty.
Shaheen was a teenager and in this age opposite sex attracts. In spite of horrible experience with Hussain, Shaheen was a teenage girl and her heart wanted someone for her. A boy named Yash got her attraction. He was very good looking and handsome. She got a crush on him. She was a girl and couldn’t say that to him. So every time he met her, her eyes always goes down. She wanted him to talk to her and like her but she was not able to express her feeling to him or anybody else. He liked her but not with these feelings he was seeing her like other girls in class.
There was a guy named Rahul in her class. He was really brilliant. His color was dark and he was not so handsome. Once teacher asked a question and nobody in class was able to answer except Rahul. Shaheen knew her but it was like other boys in class. Rahul seemed to like her but this was the problem of other guys also. Like Shaheen was searching chances to talk to Yash Rahul was searching chances to talk to her.
She told Tanya about her crush on Yash. She was surprised when Tanya told that she also liked Yash. She was kind of a girl whose liking was almost like Shaheen even in boys. Tanya didn’t object her choice but told Shaheen that it is not possible because Yash is a Hindu and Shaheen is Muslim. Shaheen knew that but she didn’t know what difference it makes. Tanya told her about difference between Hindu and Muslims. She told that it is not possible in society to marry in different religion and their parents will not allow this. She was sad but heart don’t listen any rules her attraction for Yash was not going down. She knew that Tanya is right about religion so her friendship with Tanya was still good.
One day she came to her home and found everybody was happy. Her father’s sister was at home with his son and a new bride which she didn’t seen before. She was surprised that nobody told her about her cousin marriage. They told that it was a love marriage the girl was Hindu. Her parents were not agreed so both ran away from home and did marriage in court. Now both are husband wife and nobody can argue on this. This was the reason they didn’t tell any boy or invite them to their marriage but now there will be reception and for that they have come to invite them. Everyone was happy but Shaheen was most happy by this news the first though which came in her mind that now she can marry Yash. Her family is not orthodox and they are not against Hindu-Muslim marriage. Now her love will win. Now first time in her life her religion gave her a chance to get what she loved. Her life is going to change now she will be happiest girl in the world.
