J for Jinxed #AtoZChallenge
As soon as she turned 18, the matchmaking process began.
She was a liability they said and wanted to get her married soon.
The husband was a drunkard and came under the wheels of a truck just a day after the wedding.
Then she was cursed for bringing upon ill-luck to the family.
This one is not a piece of fiction. It’s a true life incident. They said first she killed her mother when she was born and then her wrath fell on the family she married.
Married for a day, the two homes she was a part of were not hers any more. She was abused, cursed and tortured. They made her life, a living hell. She had done well in school and wanted to run away from the world to make a life of her own. She could have cleaned the school corridors, and cooked for others but it wasn’t that easy.
Jinxed that she was, she jumped in a well. This seemed the only way to run away from the battles she was fighting.
A sense of relief came to the two families that were never hers. She was supposed to meet this fate, they said.
After all, jinxed she was.
I am participating in the A To Z Challenge for the third time this year and I am penning Stories from everyday life.
