She sits with tears enslaved in her eyes. The words of her father shoot an arrow of shock through her, shaking up a tsunami of emotions. Disappointment, sorrow and anger, the strongest of all, courses through her, blinding her thoughts.
Never had she once thought this day would come. The day when she would have to tell her own father that she was her own person and not an extension of the man who would be her husband.
In her silence, she questions the universe, “We are all humans, why the disparity?” Meanwhile, her father condemns a woman for questioning her husband on his wrong, and her mother pleads with her eyes for her silence.
She bites her lip and shuts her eyes in despair, allowing her tears to run free. She vows to be a person better than he will ever be. She is her own person and she will not let his words break her.
