Respect

​(Submitted as an assignment and will be added to a novel am working on)

 

Before you spend, earn.

Before you demand from others respect, make sure you aren’t treating them as a doormat or a low life,

How you treat others comes around,

For every evil you do to others KARMA is at your tails.

If you do all of such evil/horror/harm/abuse plus putting me through hell,  I don’t OWE YOU ANY SORT OF RESPECT.

 

‘My son has broken his shoulder.’ The ugliest and most evil voice on planet said!

When your oppressor and the evil creature who does all sorts of ill towards you shares such tales with you, you can’t GLOAT,  we all pray karma makes all those who had done evil to us pay for their atrocities against us, but wish no ill on those who have not wronged you,  for even enmity has got ETHICS,  differentiate between the OGRE and an innocent powerless child who have not harmed you.

She made sincere prayers for the kid and went on doing her tasks, everything is tough and this was another test from the lord.

Sometimes she wonders why had life chosen to deal her the tough, wrong, evil and hard cards?!

Then she remembers ‘God never places upon your shoulder a burden he knows you’ll unable to carry.’ Every one of us gets a test from God equivalent to their ability and strength, and he tests the chosen ones, the ones whom he loves the most among us with the mightiest tests like he did with our beloved prophets and messengers. We try with our very little and limited strength and patience to score an ‘A+’ in the lord’s quizzes.

In spite of what others think of you, what you think of yourself is what matters the most. The boss sees her as ‘A Femme Fatale ‘ , who comes to the working place to seduce the average looking unsexy male colleagues, but truth is; she arrives every morning to earn her bread and make a living. Let them think what they think, KARMA is at the corner!

She feels that she is an officer in the military and a religious clergy woman; she is so assertive and keeps her eyes focused on moving things as per the plan and strategy, she has no surprises in store for anyone and she hates being taken by a surprise! She loves everything in and at their place, she adores order and hates CHAOS!

*****

She told her closest friend of what the boss thinks of her, she just laughed so hard and said ‘Wish he knows that most of your friends have turned their backs on you because you aren’t entertaining!’

‘That’s not what he thinks, he thinks am Rita Hayworth or Marilyn Monroe!’ She said in great fury.

‘I don’t know when was the last time I used an eyeliner or applied a lipstick?! She was almost yelling then added ‘And now he wants me to tailor special big gowns for work, if he is that religious why doesn’t he act in a humane civilized manner?!’

‘Resign!’ Said Mary.

‘I need the work and the money.’ She told her.

‘This is the job number what where the boss puts you through all kinds of horrors and atrocities?!’ She asked her then added ‘I think he’s having a mid life crisis and is probably in a boring marriage and he’s praying for his own ‘Sharon Stone’ somewhat!’

She then asked her which movie of hers does she think he had watched and in one voice the two of them said in unison ‘Basic Instinct’ and then they giggled for a long time so hard that their eyes were filled with tears!​
