The Love Bond
Over the years Sofia recognition grew in her town. Her name was something every people wished for in any event that took place. Her performances created happiness in people. They loved watching the little girl dance.
” Do little Sofia perform today? ” asks one in front of the Slovay theatre.
“I heard she won’t, she is sick probably” said another.
“Oh then let me leave” said the former person.
People wanted to enjoy her performance the most.
The theatre companies in Bratislava begin booking her for any events possible and little Sofia have already started to experience the stardom in her town.
The girl was smart and talkative and much loved than her brothers by the entire family. Mr Peter over the couple of years have expanded his business into almost the entire part of Czechoslovakia and the nearby European states. Money came pouring into his accounts and made him filthy rich.
Sofia got everything she wanted by her side from her dad be it cloths, chocolates from swiss or let it be a playing instrument.
Her popularity in her town have made her one of the most notable student in her school as well. She had two other girls with her all the time. They were Eva and Gladice. She loved them more than anything. They meant everything to her. Eva’s dad owned the Slovay theatre at the town. Most of Sofia dances was performed at the Slovay theatre as well. Peter felt more comfortable being in Slovay.
Whereas, Gladice wasn’t financial sound her father sacrificed his life to the Germans during the German invasion in Slovakia. Her mother who recovered from her illness due to spinal disorder does knitting for living and helps in a grocery store to feed her family. Sofia had hugely convinced Peter to help Galdice’s mom in her treatment that if she was able to make a single step without any pain then Sofia is the person and the reason for her wellness. She loved her like her own mom Sylvia.
Probably her birth was something that happened with the kindness of many she was eventually blessed with a kind heart as well. She never hurted any animals and she loved rabbits a lot.
Jadi her white furry rabbit tickled her arms and hands and they played a lot after her schools hours. Three of them maintained a close friendly relationship to each other.
There school days went as memorable one and years past by.
The winter arrived at Bratislava this year earlier as ever before. Cold wind blew through the streets causing the dry leaves to fly away. The Hornik family was in a mood of celebration as Sofia is turning twenty one.
Peter and Sylvia has arranged a grand birthday celebration inviting their neighbours, employs and relatives to grandeur of birthday celebration. The wind kept blewing outside as the clock striked seven in the evening causing the guest a little inconvenient to the reach the Hornik household. Simon and Samo got suited up for the event in twin colours and they looked smart. The living hall was decorated with balloons, multi coloured crepe papers from one corner of the big room to another and party streamers.
The Casa Nova Bakers famous in the town baked the three multi layered cake out from the box. It looked sumptuous with cherry toppings and chocolates. Sylvia invited the guests as they arrived. Made them comfortable from the blistering cold outside and Peter tossed a glass of wine with his fellow mates.
” Where is the pretty lady ?” asked one of the guest to Sylvia.
“She is upstairs getting ready, I should probably check her out” said Sylvia.
Sylvia walked upstairs to check out Sofia.
Eva and Gladice have already been in her bedroom helping her to get dressed for the party.
” you must probably go for some dark shades on your lips, what do you say Gladice? ” asked Eva.
“Yup, you are right Eva” said Gladice.
Eva tied her brown locks of hair in style.
“What you think will he come over tonight? ” asked Eva.
“Eva, may I know whom your referring to my dear ” asked Sofia.
” Gladice did you notice those face? Come on Sofia, the handsome tall guy whom appears to be the house captain of our college” said Eva.
“I have invited, but I do not know or probably their is nothing like that like what you thing beautiful girls” said Sofia.
” Let’s see it to ourself, but I tell you what he is very much interested in you, I am pretty sure about it sweetheart” said Eva”.
” Evaa! ” yelled Sofia.
Knock knock! They heard the door knocking.
Gladice went to the door and opened it.
“Girls! What is going on? Please make it fast the guests have already arrived, they are asking for the birthday girl.” said Sylvia.
“Ok mom, almost over, will be their in a second” said Sofia.
She looked dazzling in her sleek red long gown and a beautiful diamond necklace. Pretty and gorgeous she looked.
