Innocence


Source- Google image



Little did he know that those tiny finger running after butteflies will be crushed. Little did he know those fluttering eyes once filled with innocence will become an abode of terror. Little did he know the laughter that once rang through their house will be muted within stone walls. How he wished he knew his doted daughter would be lost in that foreign land. He wished he knew this before giving her hand to someone the destiny brought their way.

This post is for Lillie McFerrin Writer's  five sentence fiction.

    1. Thank you for dropping by Anusree. I hope it will awaken some parents from the deep sleep of fixing marriage on caste and reputation.
