23rd December 1998
Papa again hit me today. I showed the little bruise in my elbow to Ma. While applying medicine she asked me to shut up and never mess with Papa again.
I guess Ma is angry. When Ma is angry she won’t talk to me for days, sometimes months! I don’t talk to Papa. When Papa is not in good mood, he is a monster.
I was crying in my room when she came. It was strange that the dogs didn’t bark at her. No one told me we had a visitor either. She just walked inside and sat beside me.
I was still crying when she said “It’s Okay. Don’t cry. Will you be my friend?”
I didn’t know whether we can make friends with strangers. But she was nice like a doll. She was dressed in pink. Her long silky hair was glowing like sunshine. She was fairer than me and beautiful.
“What is your name?” I asked her between my tears.
She smiled and said, “Am Payal!”
It was the first time I felt so comfortable! Was she an angel?
She listened to my every complaint, every tear, every fear and every betrayal. I never had close friends, people always left me. I don’t know why. I told Payal the same. She said “People don’t know your value. You are special”
Am I special?
May be I am! Why would I get such an awesome friend otherwise?
-Payal’s Friend, Meera! 🙂
