She felt elated in his arms and felt free from the age-old traditions the burden of which she was carrying for years on her shoulders.
Her twelve years old son, her only companion after her husband's death just entered the room at that moment in muddy clothes.
He was shocked to see a man hugging his mother but he noticed that her mother was happy which he never saw when she was with his vicious father who use to beat her daily.
He once pushed his father from terrace to liberate her mother from his cruelty and now he smiled in confirmation of her mother's relation which liberated her from burden of useless traditions.
His smile for her was more luminous than a moon or a star which had brighten her dark life.
