She was walking for quite a long time now. Lost in herself, unaware of the surroundings. Rosa had decided to explore the nearby forest today, but her mind was engulfed by the wild storm of statements, each one contradictory. She had to convey her final decision by tomorrow morning. It was a big opportunity for her but the company was in New York. It meant shifting not only to other country but altogether to a new continent, where there was no one she could call her own. She was afraid. It was going to be a huge change. It was not until her sandal broke that she realized she had forgotten to put on her shoes for the walk. The path was full of stones and mud. She looked around and found that the forest was really dense there. She removed her sandals and began to walk. It was getting difficult for her now. She stopped and was thinking that should she return back or not, when she heard a slow sound of flowing water. The musical sound drew her towards it and she resumed her walk again.
Stones were now beginning to make their mark on her feet but she continued whatsoever. After a long walk, the darkness started reducing and she saw an opening from the trees. A crystal blue floor caught her attention. She paced faster and when she reached there she was awestruck. A small waterfall had emerged out of the cracks of mountains giving way to the a fast flowing stream. The water was beautifully blue. There were numerous flowers of such amazing colors that her heart felt astonishment and happiness at the same time. She sat down at a rock there and put her feet in the flowing water. It was only when she looked down at her feet, she realised that blood was flowing from many places. The path has pricked and injured them. But she didn’t care, for if she would have gone back, she wouldn’t have the opportunity to experience this heaven. She was feeling a sense of achievement and pride. She was now ready with her decision. Rosa was going to say ‘YES’ tomorrow!
