They just boarded that long distance bus then. Both were young and good looking and dressed well. He had a look of concern, but her eyes reflected her conviction. Not that she was not worried, but she appeared a bit confident. They were lovers alright and were just married a few hours back. They didn't like to marry in that way, but had to, though they waited for several years. He had nobody else for himself and she only had a father. Her father had been and still was her role model. But she could not understand why he refused to accept their love. In fact her lover was more educated, had decent looks, was a teetotaller and earned more than her. And she felt that he was the one made for her. They did not take any drastic step and waited for four long years hoping that her dad would change. He did not and was trying to convince her to choose someone from the list that he had. After a point, she decided what to do. There was no option. She asked her lover to come to her home and together, they asked for his approval. They got the same answer. She then said good-bye to her shocked dad and left with him, without taking anything from there. Seeing him worried, she said, "Don't worry! Dad will be alright!". "You know? I could have still felt alright had you obliged to your dad!", he said. "Thats why I came with you!", she said.
