And then they met By Syeda Faiza Rasheed


Deepak’s life was an adventure. Losing virginity, a bet. All was unplanned so he decided to go where he could select someone, like picking a drink.

Jyothi had to face the world she’d been pushed into. Five months ago, she had come. Today, she was ready to take the step.

Deepak entered the building. Women, red lips, provocatively dressed, scented bodies.
His eyes scanned the place, hers fluttered. Choice was made.

Inside the room, he saw a cot with a clothes bundle. He looked at her. Young. Beautiful. Heavy make-up. Innocent eyes. Yet, out of place.

He sat on the bed, facing her.

Your name? he asked.

Jyothi, she replied.

Tell about yourself.

Nothing worth.

He asked. She answered.

Finally, he asked, Why here?

Emotionlessly, she said, Poverty. Sold in marriage. Kept till content. Then sold here.

His heart wrenched.

When?
Five months back.

So……already?

No…..you’re first.

Suddenly a shrill cry echoed. She rushed towards the cot, lifting a wriggling body.

She saved me till now, but don’t want this for her, she said teary-eyed.

For him, life was a luxury, for her a curse.

And then they met. Three lives changed.
