U is for ..... Ugly

This is a work of fiction and forms a part of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. I will attempt to write a new story based on the word for the day every day during the month of April.


“You are the ugliest girl I have ever seen”, he spat.
Ujwala didn’t mind as much as she should have. She knew she was far from beautiful. But she also knew she had brains, and to her that was much more important.
They spend the remaining years in engineering college avoiding each other, and went their separate ways after graduation. They met again only at their Twentieth Reunion.
“Ujwala?! Is that really you?”, he exclaimed.
“Why? How can you forget the Ugly Duckling?”, she asked.
She knew he found her attractive. When a woman feels good about herself, it shows.

Excellent thank you! the ugly duckling turns into a swan! A gal sure feels good when she looks good, a bit of lipgloss and an inner beauty is all she needs.

Hello, Natasha! This is cute. It's true, too; how you feel about yourself on the inside shows on the outside.

Happy A to Z-ing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines
