As children, all of us want to be a favorite of our parents, expecting all their decisions to surround our happiness because we know we’re the center of their life and they immensely love us. However, if a decision that they take doesn’t fit in our tiny logic, we perceive them in a wrong frame and start moving at distance. This story is about a girl who had a hard time understanding a decision taken by her parents, specially her mother who she was extremely attached to, and it seemed that she had lost her deep connection with both of them. Nonetheless, parents being parents, they always know how to bring their offspring back.
She felt lonely, detached and with a feeling of an extreme disapproval towards someone and was quite stubborn to lead her life that way. Then life gives her a chance to walk the road taken by her mother, with a subtle guidance by her father, and from there on her perspectives begin to change about everything and everyone, as well as her feelings. Story unfolds; what she once sternly believed based on her understanding, is about to be beautifully challenged by her own experiences
When I was just 5, my teacher asked me what I wanted to be, and my reply was, “a scientist.” Why? Because they can experiment and that sounds so exciting. In my teens, I had a keen interest in joining an airline. Why? Because I would be able to explore and observe.
Every child thinks a thousand things before life finally reveals what you were born to do. It was in my mid-twenties that I realized I wanted to be a writer. I was already writing since long, everything that I wanted to write, and it always gave me a great sense of joy and happiness, but the day I decided this is what I seriously wished to pursue, there was no looking back. Writing gives me a chance at both; experiment, and exploration. My journey towards writing has had my times in banking, and teaching. Though both fields are great in their own accord but for me it’s writing. Teaching, and studying Mass Communication helped me further in carving myself as a writer. Now that my first novel is finally being published, I’m looking forward to writing many more. ~Laila Sandleen
