Anna was all excited for party as she was looking very beautiful. They were standing in parking area of the mall and waiting for the cab. Soon they got a cab. It would take half an hour to reach party hall but due to traffic they got delayed by half an hour more. Anna was getting impatient , because she thought she would reach the party late and won’t be able to enjoy and all her money spent on makeup will go in vain. She started shouting at the cab driver to drive faster. Innocent driver replied ‘Sorry ma’am I can’t drive, as you can see we are stuck’. Anna with full of anger started yelling at him.
Mia said ‘Anna just stop it , you know the situation, then why are you behaving like this ?’. ‘It’s all because of you that we got late. I don’t need to explain it further, I guess you know !! ‘Let’s walk till there ‘Mia suggested.
Anna wailed ‘How is that possible?? My makeup?? It will be sweaty!!’. Mia said gently ‘Can’t help dear, either you will be late or you will be sweaty?, its better if we walk as cool breeze is blowing and we won’t get sweaty that much. Come on dear’
They started walking and soon they reached the main gate of party hall. Anna was all tried walking and suddenly when she touched the door, her hills slipped and she fell down .She was now fully annoyed and had just opened her mouth to curse Mia, but a miracle happened.
Suddenly Mia’s face sparkled, she started looking radiant and pretty. Anna had never saw Mia’s alluring face ever before. She was startle for a moment. But was back soon, ignoring this she entered the party hall, but at the back of her mind she was feeling uncomfortable and confused. For the first time Anna felt jealous of Mia’s beauty.
Everyone glared at Mia when both of them entered, ignoring Anna. Mia soon found herself standing in spotlight, everyone staring at her. Anna being disregarded, started feeling uncomfortable and seated herself . Anna was burning with anger whenever she thought of Mia’s beauty and as a result her face started looking hideous.
Mia seemed cheerful and was busy in twattling with friends. She noticed that Anna was looking sad and left, so she urged her to join the group. But Anna told ‘I don’t need to join any group, all my admirers will join me, you just wait and watch, in parties everyone needs a beautiful company like me to hang on….’
No one bothered to talk with Anna after noticing her face which was looking very unusual. She was not looking same ”gorgeous” Anna ! Instead her face was looking charmless and ugly full of jealousy. As if what was inside in heart was revealing on her face. For the first time she didn’t got a single compliment from her admirers. She was heartbroken. She didn’t enjoy a single moment in the party nor ate anything.
Mia was worried for her friend Anna, so she served a plate of snacks to her but Anna shouted and said ‘leave me alone.’ Mia told ‘I think you’re tired let’s go to our hostel. But first sprinkle some fresh water on your face to feel better.
Anna went to the washroom and screamed. She was in shock after noticing her face in the mirror. She was looking horrible. Mia rushed after hearing Anna’s cry. Both were confused as neither of them knew how come they were looking like this. Anna cursed the beauty parlor staff for destroying her beauty. Mia told no ‘they have really enhanced my beauty, may be because of walking your face has become dull.’
Soon then, they saw the staff from beauty parlor running towards them carrying their shopping bag having their to-do list. She told ‘Maam you had forgotten your shopping bag in my shop. I couldn’t recognize whose was it until I read your to-do list. This reminded me of you , ma’am. I too have to attend a party here ,so I thought I can return your bag here ‘. Mia thanked but Anna betrayed the staff. Staff replied ‘I have followed your instructions and refined both of your’s inner beauty. Now your inner beauty is visible as you wished for, you will remain your kind of beautiful forever since heart doesn’t have wrinkles. Hope you like it ma’am’…………
