Expectation leads to

Thanks loniangraphics for the photo prompt.

Expectation, leads to misery. The mermaid who was sidelined because of her weirdness and mystique brought Natasha the weed of life to cure her terminal illness. She couldn’t bear the fact that a happy go lucky girl, with truckloads of friends had to go through this pain. The pain of non-acceptance from friends, the pain of illness,the pain of transcending areas unknown.

So what if people ridiculed me, this little girl taught everyone to accept me, so what if her own friends have deserted her, so what if I have to fight for her over death? I’ll leave no stone unturned.

A weed it was, but what a friendship it forged, a friendship of a lifetime.True expectation leads to misery, but a hand that helps, gets in abundance from quarters unknown.

Thoughts behind this story :- Many a times we feel that we were let down by the very same people we thought were friends. Fret not, for their behavior is not a reflection of you. Let the brightness in you radiate positivity for the people around.
