Kawsar Ahamed || risingbd.com
A newborn baby, who was crying, lies down beside his mother at a hospital. By giving birth to her baby, the mother wasn’t gladsome at all. The father of her baby wasn’t present there!
A couple of years back, the story started with a relationship, which was one-sided love! The man loved his beloved unconditional. The man was completely crazy for getting her consent to love him, he couldn't think for a moment except his beloved.
He had a lot of privileges to fall in love with others; and the man dreamt her every single moment of his life. He then thought love was blind; it had no criteria to measure how much he loved her!
It’s a peculiar relationship in deed. Actually, the lady, along with her family members, seemed that the man wasn’t qualified for her at all because he was below the average income people, didn’t look handsome, and had no rich family background as well.
On the other hand, the lady was so beautiful, had a high profile social structure with a good educational background. But the truth be told, the boy loved her from his heart. On the contrary, the girl didn’t like him and even blocked him on social media, which is the only medium to connect her.
Falling in love with the lady, the boy totally became a fanciful guy; he didn't imagine for a second without her. He made stories then visualized that and got pleasures. The boy imagined her at the time of eating, sleeping, reading, playing, doing work and serious situations as well. In one word, he became mad for her love; but his craziness didn’t appear in front of people - only he could apprehend the fact.
Even a single day hadn’t gone well, except seeing her pictures on social media, he created many bogus accounts to see her. On the other hand, the girl always loathed him. He talked to her twice through messenger, and sometimes over telephone. The girl told him that she was bothered by his activities and he shouldn't do this anymore.
And at the last moment, she accused him and claimed it to CID cyber branch. Consequently, an officer was attempting to convince him over the telephone to stop bothering her.
What did the boy do then? Let's see- he knocked her relatives, friends and her own brother too, to know more information about his beloved and wrote confessions as to her in her university’s confession page; informed her parents if he seemed someone is her boyfriend; though she was not in a relationship.
A couple of months later, an incredible case occurred with her beloved, for that she became hospitalized with a serious problem. The irony is that the way of cure consisted in that boy's blood. The girl’s family as well as doctors didn’t figure out anyone else except the boy’s blood.
Then her family, who also disdained him, and requested to assist them and come to the life of their only daughter, but the boy refused! He didn't comply with their proposal because if he donates his blood he had to get married to her; otherwise she will not become a mother in the future.
Later, he agreed to cooperate with her just because of his parents, though he loved her very much rather than himself. The girl later also started to love him and at last, they got married.
Although the boy couldn’t love her like the previous days, because he was frequently humiliated, this made him unkind the days later. The lady fell in love with him seriously day by day!
The girl became pregnant by blood not with sperms, which was very appealing news to the boy and others. But except the boy, everyone knew the fact earlier, that’s why both family members were very happy to get new members.
A couple days later, she gave birth to the baby. The lady gave birth to a boy, who resembled his father; but the husband of the lady couldn’t obey the matter, though he met them finally at hospital. But his suspicious mind couldn’t believe anyhow, that’s why one day he decided to go to the hospital for a DNA test of his newborn!
He then realized everything and understood the fact, accepting his baby. He started loving his beloved again. He began a new life with a happy family forever. He learnt- true love never dies, life is beautiful if you can make it beautify, every relationship is transactional by some things. And last but not least don’t be arrogant; don’t stop loving your beloved until death.
At 6am, when he woke up from the bed, he could apprehend that he was not in reality. It was a dream of his crush!
