Her Fairy Tale

        She stood by the door waiting for her kid to return from school. 

       The bundle of joy came right at that moment, bursting with a happy news from school that she had to share with her amma.

       It was such a contented life - sending her daughter to school which was her dream ever since she was denied that chance 16 years back.

       "Back to earth!! I haven't employed you for day dreaming. Finish the work fast" The harsh voice of her employer put an end to her fairy tale. 

       "Amma will work hard to make life better for you" she said to her unborn baby as she carried the another load of jellies to the construction site.
