Colours - Gold

[Every woman has a story. Every story has a colour. This is just one of them.]


[This is a work of fiction. The characters and situations are purely imaginary, and any resemblance to people living or dead is purely coincidental and unintended.]

Every girl dreams of her wedding day. Or wedding week, as it now has become. An outfit a day, sometimes two. Months of trousseau shopping in preparation.

Heavily embellished saris teamed with Swarovski encrusted corsets. Mermaid cut ghagharas, zardosi-work on dupattas. Antique weaves appliqu├ęd onto evening gowns. They are her’s, without asking.

There is not a single girl that doesn’t envy her. Of how she gets to don the latest fashions, even before they become the fashion.

But you know what? This mannequin would gladly live her life in rags, if she could just be a girl for a day.

Drabble(n) -
an extremely short work of fiction exactly one hundred words in length.

Thanks, Dipali, Chary and Michelle. I thought the picture was a giveaway, but maybe not!
