Love Story

Wedding is always a pride of human

   Colours are offsprings of the sun and a happy soul must rejoice in colours. Give me colours and I’ll dress you like a beautiful bride.
   This was how madame Alero charmed herself into the heart of Theodora.

  Smiling, Theodora responded: you must have read my thoughts. I’m a bride. A bride on Saturday.

   Madame Alero, a little sprite on her feet stood up from her well cushioned chair, her lean but youthful face creasing into line of laughter, her eyes big and lovely, bore into Theodora.

   Theodora had stars in her eyes; such stars that made madame Alero peep into a wonderland of love and happy marriage through her stimulated imagination. She clasped Theodore’s hands as she would her daughter’s.

Madame Alero slipped into momentary reverie saying: “Now I wish all of life was a wedding, the joining together of people with love and affection.
