She left me on my wedding day

I found out that she had been at another man's house for the time period she went MIA (missing in action). I was heartbroken. DESIGN: AMNA IQBAL

We had been together since forever. I always respected her and cared for her feelings. It was a perfect relationship between us. I still can’t live without her.

Whenever she’d get angry, she would stop talking for a couple of hours; my whole body would go tense and I would sweat like crazy after. She had given me light all my life. Sometimes she mysteriously disappeared but always came back to me.

A couple of days ago, she went missing for a good two days. I called her house many times, but there was no answer.

I found out that she had been at another man’s house for the time period she went MIA (missing in action). I was heartbroken. Words cannot describe the misery I underwent.

But then her father, Mr Ashraf, said that she had made a mistake and was regretful of her actions,

“She will never leave you again, I promise.” He assured me.

So once again I gave her a place in my heart generously because I loved her.

Her family never treated me with respect either. Whenever I called at her PTCL number, her brother would rudely command me to be patient. I never understood what that meant to be honest.

Then came my wedding day. All was set. I was dressed in a three piece suit, she looked so pretty shimmering and glittering.

All of a sudden, without informing anyone, she left me. No one knew where she had gone or when she would return. I thought this would be one of her mood swings and that she’d be back soon.

6:00pm. 7:00pm. 8:00pm. No sign of her.

Everything was dark around me now. My world was shaking. I felt like dying. How could I trust her given that she walked out on me all the time? How could I have been so stupid?

My friends were right. I should have never taken her back. Fool I was.

Then somebody said,

‘Bhai aap nai KESC mai complain kardi thi naa?’

(Brother, did you file a complaint with KESC?)

And at that very moment, my world was lit up again, following which I heard a cunning voice whisper in my ear:

Sorry love, I was stuck with Clifton.
