Five sentence fiction: Marriage

Lillie McFerrin Writes

 

Marriage

Samina was waiting anxiously to get the results of her final master’s degree exam, she made up her mind to join the teaching profession at the same time she knew she had to get a degree in education.

She registered in the education degree program, she was successful, the next thing was to get a job, while she was busy looking for one,her mother was planning to get her a good husband, Samina reminded her mother she wanted to work for sometime, she really thought her mother’s choice may not be good for her.

Mother and daughter argued daily about this particular topic, Samina made up her mind to move to a different city for work.

Luckily she found a job she liked, also there was provision for housing, things were working well she was happy, the teaching environment was beginning to bother her,the headmaster gave her extra duties which took up most of her time, besides teaching she had to supervise the kids for breakfast, lunch and dinner, she practically had no time for herself, she quit her job and thought maybe she should take her mother’s advise to settle down.

Her mother was elated, without wasting any time she selected the right husband for her daughter, the preparation for the big day took two weeks, on the third week Samina fulfilled her mother’s desire, as far as I know the bride and the groom are happy and contented!!
