Mother : Please Sadie, listen to pa. Instead of going out every night, you should stay at home.
Sadie : Chill dad, you don’t have to worry about me. I’m old enough and I know how to take care of myself. Let me enjoy my life for once.
*Sadie went her room and slammed the door.*
Few months later,
Sadie got pregnant and she informed her parents about her pregnancy.
Sadie : OMG! I’m pregnant. What should I do?!!!!!!!
Sadie met her parents.
Sadie : Pa, Ma. I have something to tell you both.
Mother : Yes my dear.
Sadie : ermmmmm….I’m pregnant.(try to hold herself from crying)
Mother : Sadie, how?
Father : Sadie! What! Pregnant?! You don’t have to explain to me. I have told you so many times to not do the things that you have been doing all this time. Look! What have happen now! Pack your things and get out from this house.
Mother: Honey, don’t do this to our daughter. Everybody makes mistakes. She will learn from this. Just give her the chance to prove herself to us. It’s okay, Sadie. Looks like the family is growing. There will be a mini Sadie running around our house in a few months. I’m really looking forward to it.
Father: Hm, whatever. So, are you going to keep the baby?
Sadie: I will keep the baby.
Father: I can’t believe that you would do this to us, your parents. I am really disappointed and ashamed of you and your behaviour. I don’t know how I’m going to face other people after what you have done.
Mother: Let them be. The most important thing right now is to give her support. After all, she is still our daughter.
After nine months of being pregnant, Sadie delivered two baby girls safely. But, she was depressed because the society could not accept her. They just treated her twin babies like an outcast. At the end of the day, Sadie committed suicide. She was overdosed with sleeping pills.
Sadie : My daughters, mommy will not be around anymore. Take care of yourself. Don’t be like me. Think wisely before you do anything. When I’m not around anymore, go to the living room, open the small closet, there is something I prepared for you. After Sadie died.
*the daughters went to the living room and they opened the small closet. They found tooth-comb. They were crying and they promised to keep it.*
Her daughters left the home right after her death, taking the comb with them. Maud, on the other hand, was feeling all alone and empty. She lived in the house all by herself. She has no husband, no kids, and has no one. Her life was miserable.
Maud: I was so caught up with college that I didn’t get to live my life the way I want. I wish I could be like Sadie. Now, look at me. I’m all alone in this house. Living with silence and emptiness. I never realise how lonely I was until it’s the end of the day and I got a bunch of things to talk about but no one to talk to.
