💎I was sold but I got married💎
💫An Indian romance story💫
By: Pinky Preshy Chioma🖊
I caught the lady peeping into the room with my arm.
She quickly turned around and gasped.
“Who are you and what are…?…” I said but she covered my mouth with her palms.
She looked at me with pleading eyes.
I dragged her to a far away distance before leaving her forcefully.
“I said who are you?” I barked at her.
She gulped nervously.
“Please don’t tell my mother about this?” she cried.
“Mother? Is ma’am Lakshmi your mom?” I asked puzzled.
“Yes! She’s my grandma actually… I was only following her” She replied
“What’s your name?” I asked with a hoarse voice.
“Saloni…my name is Saloni” She said
“So why are you trailing your grandma? Do you want me to tell on you?” I asked
“Ma’am please all I want is to get the ransom…. It’s such a big amount of money” She said
“Ransom? Which money are you talking about?” I asked anxiously
“The baby you kidnapped…. He’s an heir to a very rich family and the family have promised a big amount of money to anyone who can bring back their missing heir” Saloni said.
“How much?” I asked keenly
“Two million rupees..” She said and I flinched.
“What?” I asked anxiously.
My jaw dropped… 😲😲
That’s such a huge amount of money 💰
I was so stunned and gobsmacked.
I walked into the house very tired.
I sat heavily on the couch as thoughts of what I encountered filled my mind.
Actually the lady by name Rohi who is my Mamaa’s accomplice, she agreed to help me.
So that we can share the money.
I can’t wait to get such amount of money.
💭 Am really very sorry Mamaa! I can’t live in abject poverty just to satisfy your selfish desires 💭 I thought as I scratched my head.
My gaze went straight to the dinning.
My eyes popped out in shock.
The plates… 😱
I haven’t cleared or washed any of them.
The food am yet to prepare….
Jeez! I hope Mamaa won’t meet me still cleaning or washing.
I quickly sprang up and rushed into the kitchen.
FEW MINUTES LATER
I was done with almost all the chores before mother walked in.
“Good evening Mamaa” I said pretentiously
“Don’t tell me you are still cooking?” Mamaa said sternly.
“Uhmm… Ye… No…. I mean yes” I said as I gulped nervously.
Oh good lord!
I just hope Mamaa doesn’t suspect anything strange.
My heart was beating very fast.
“Why is your face like that?” Mamaa asked as I blinked my eyes.
“Huh? What are you talking about Mamaa? How is my face?” I asked as I walked to the standing mirror looking at my image.
“Whatever! Just finish up, am famished….” Mamaa said as she walked upstairs.
I exhaled heavily…
Thank goodness! ☺
I brought out a big box from under my bed.
I smiled broadly.
“This is where I will save the money… The very huge amount of money that the buyer’s of the baby will give me” I smiled.
Just then, an idea popped into my head and I roared in laughter.
💭 Maybe I should use the baby to make life miserable for Krishna 💭 I thought
I rolled my eyes mischievously.
I quickly brought out a tape recorder and laughed..
This will do the job…
🎊 It’s fun time 🎊
It was noon and I was just lying on the bed lost in thought as usual.
Since the kidnap of my baby, I turned into a sadist.
You don’t blame me… Do you?
Am just a frustrated mother…..
My life has been hell since I was born.
My parents died….
My aunt maltreated me…
I was sold out…
Then forced into marriage….
I was also hated by many….
I had a son…. That was the only good thing that happened to me.
He was kidnapped… My only source of joy was taken away from me.
life why are you being cruel to me?
Why are you being unfair to me?
Why are you treating me badly?
I have many questions with no answers.
Tears welled down my chubby cheeks.
Just then, I heard a baby’s cry…..
it was so loud and tiny.
I jumped up from the bed and rushed outside.
“My baby… Kush! Kush!!” I called crazily as I kept following the voice.
It was coming directly from the store room.
I throw the door open and walked in.
As usual the candle light giving light in the room was on.
That was not my main concern…. I just need to find my son.
But I wasn’t hearing the voice anymore.
“Kush! Son….” I wailed
Suddenly, the door slammed closed.
But I don’t even care about that… all I want is my son.
I unknownily pushed the candle light and it fell on the curtains….
the fire 🔥 broke out.
I tried to open the door but I couldn’t, I was trapped.
I banged the door…..
It was locked…
“Help! Help!! Somebody help me” I wailed.
The fire was coming more closer and the flames was too much.
I could barely breathe….
I coughed uncontrollably as I passed out….
I sat beside the bed as I watched my Krishna lying peacefully on the bed.
I shook my head in depression.
For the past one week since our son disappeared, Krishna has never been herself.
She almost died today.
Krishna continued knocking on the door and screaming for help.
But the flames was too much so she collapsed.
I came home cos I forgot some files at home.
That was when I heard her knocking and screaming.
I came to help her out but the door was locked with a padlock.
I was shocked!
Could it be that someone locked her up to die?
I saw the flames rushing out of the store room.
I broke the door and rescued her as the firemen came and quenched the fire.
I breathed heavily….
💭 Thank goodness! She’s safe 💭 I thought.
Just then, Father rushed into the house with mother, Vishnu And Pavitra.
“What the hell is wrong with this crazy wife of yours? Does she want to burn down my mansion?” Father fired angrily.
“This is really getting out of hand! She has gone totally insane” Vishnu added
I only kept mute staring at them.
“You are not saying anything Aakash?” Father asked
“Father she’s just depressed about her son’s kidnap” I managed to say.
“What depression? Should that make her burn down the mansion?” Vishnu yelled at me.
I was so gobsmacked.
“I think that woman has gone crazy….” Father said
“What? Father my wife is not crazy” I said defensively.
“Oh yes! She has gone nuts…” Vishnu said
“Vishnu I won’t tolerate you calling my very own wife crazy” I said furiously.
“Father you know what? We might just go to sleep one day and end up burnt in the morning all because of one crazy woman in the midst of sane people” Vishnu said as I raised my hand to slap him but mother held me back.
“I think Vishnu is right… First thing tomorrow morning, Krishna will be taken to a mental hospital… An asylum” Father said as my mouth opened in surprise.
“Father!…” I called shocked
“You heard me….” Father said as tears rolled down my cheeks.
“This is so unfair!” I screamed
“No Aakash! This is for her own good… She needs to get better” Mother said.
“Mother are you telling me you believe that my wife is crazy?” I half yelled
“My son truth must be said! She’s acting crazy” Mother said as I scratched my head in annoyance.
“Hell no! Infact am moving out of this house for good with my wife” I said
“You dare not Aakash…. Try me and see” Father said as I sank on the bed in anger.
I weakly opened my eyes…
I saw everyone sitting beside me with long faces.
“Have you seen him? Is he in his car? Did you bring him?” I asked as I sprang up .
“Calm down Krishna!” Aakash said as he held me but I pushed him away.
“Someone talk to me! Have you seen my son? Have you seen Kush? My son was crying earlier…” I cried jumping up and down as Aakash held me tight.
“You see this lady is very crazy” Father said as he walked away.
“He’s crying… My son is crying” I yelled.
“You need to rest Krishna” Pavitra said as I shook my head in disagreement.
“No! I want my son… He was crying!! Bring back my son” I kept shouting.
SOME MINUTES LATER
A lady walked in with a nurse attire.
She was holding a syringe.
I was still shouting and jumping….
They held me down and injected me with the syringe 💉
Slowly, I fell asleep….
I opened my eyes…
I was chained in a bed….
The room looked like a hospital…
“Where am I?” I asked no-one in particular.
There was no one in the room and my voice echoed.
Just then, the door was opened as Aakash, Father in-law, Pavitra and mother in law came in.
“Aakash Sir please help me! I don’t wanna be here” I cried
“You have to get better Krishna so that we can find our son together” Aakash said with a teary voice.
“Yes Krishna! You are mentally unstabled so you need to be treated” Father in-law said.
“No! Am not crazy! Am perfectly fine” I cried bitterly
“Am sorry but you have to get better” Pavitra cried aloud.
I kept screaming and pleading to them to untie me to no avail.
I read the newspaper with my glasses fixed to my eyes.
I burst into laughter…
“Finally I’ve gotten rid of Krishna… They have taken her to the asylum thinking that she’s insane” I smiled.
Now I have to focus on how to get my dear daughter into the mansion.
My cell phone rang aloud….
it was the buyers of the baby…
I smiled broadly!
😋 cool cash 💰 😋
📞Hello…. My voice echoed
📞Ma’am where are you? We are ready to buy him…. They said and I smiled happily.
📞I’ll be there soon… I smiled mischievously
📞OK ma’am…. They said and I hung up.
Smiles escaped my lips and I jumped for joy.
Time to sell the heir…
Baby Kush…. 😥😥😥
