was last Saturday when I saw her for the first time. She wore red shirt paired
with old blue jeans. She was busy chirping with her girl-friends when she
entered through the glass door. She saw me. Her eyes said it was love at first
sight. Her friend picked up her shopping bag from the counter and they left.
But I saw her turn around to look at me once more. Her eyes had determination
that she will make me hers.
resist me for long and was back the very next day when she confessed her love
for me and from that moment I was all hers. I accompanied her everywhere. She
wouldn't let me out of her sight for a single second. I loved her company. Her
bubbly voice was like music that spread happiness wherever she went.
Today, she was happy beyond words. It
was the most awaited day of her life; prom night. She looked gorgeous in her red knee-length dress. Red was
definitely her color. Red complimented her innocence. She danced so gracefully to
the rhythm that anyone who saw her would fall in love with her. Amidst the

to me, she escaped with me leaving behind the crimson trail. Nobody knew what
had happened and who he was!
she reached home, she shut herself in her room and cried day and night. I was
there in the corner of the room, but did nothing to pacify her wailing heart. I
was hurt too. I had seen her dreams being crushed. She was devastated. She felt
deceived. What was her fault, I thought. Just that
she believed in fairy tales and prince charming and knew nothing about what
trap Love was? How naïve of her to get
her heart and soul broken, anyone would say. But I knew whatever she was, she
didn't deserve this. She was nothing less than a princess. I was lost in
thoughts while she drowned herself in tears when I heard the police siren. There was a knock at the door few minutes later. Someone opened the door.

was as shocked as her father was, but I wasn't clueless like him. What a cruel world it was!
it is. Mr. Garg, the politician has filed a complaint again her for attempting
to kill his son, stabbing him with pointed red stilettos.
Ah! My mention! But all I had done was to help
her to escape from the monster! I
was still thinking about what I did was good or not when the sub-inspector
picked me up and suffocated me in transparent polythene.
