Shopping is the best medicine for Shopaholics!


“Ria, Ria, Ria, Pick up the phone girl!”

“Dammit. Why isn’t she picking my calls! I need to check on her.”

Ting tong. Ting tong

(Ringing the doorbell of Ria’s home)

“Hello Aunty,how are you? Is Ria home?” asked Sunaina

“I am fine Beta. Yes, she is in her bedroom. “ Replied Ria’s Mom.

“Beta,What have happened to Ria! She isn’t talking to anyone. She stays in her room most of the time. If I ask her why isn’t she going to college, she says she is not feeling well. If I ask her to check with the doctor, she refuses for it too. I don’t understand why is she behaving this  way! Is something serious Sunaina? Please tell me. It has been two days now.” Asked Ria’s  mom with a concerned look.

“No Aunty, nothing like that. May be  she is upset with me still. I am here now and she will be fine Aunty. Don’t worry.” Replied Sunaina.

“Ria, what’s the matter with you? Why the hell you aren’t picking my calls? You are not even attending the college. Ria are you even listening to me? Ria talk to me sweetie. You are sitting here, crying for Aman and he is out there enjoying his life. The person for whom you are wasting your precious tears, who cheated on you and ran away with some other girl is happy Ria. You have your whole life ahead. We are there for you and we love you Ria. We are concerned for you. We can’t see you this way. Your mom, your whole family  is worried for you Ria. You just not hurting yourself, but also hurting us. “ Said Sunaina.

RIA crying out loudly hugged Sunaina.

“What should I do!It’s difficult for me to forget things. “ Replied Ria.

“Yes, I know sweetie how you must be feeling. But you need to be strong and prove Aman, you can be happy without him. What he did to you and what you doing now to yourself has no difference. Time will heal everything Ria. Just be strong. We all are here for you.We love you.”replied Sunaina.

Sunaina knew how to cheer Ria’s mood. She switched on the computer.

Ria wondering, asked Sunaina”What are you doing?”

Ria loves shopping like anything.Shopping has always been her  first love.Her wardrobe kept changing according to the new fashion in the market. She has an amazing bargaining skills. Sunaina knew this very well.

“Ria, come here. I have something to show you.” Said Sunaina

Ria looking at the monitor screen”No Sunaina, I am really in no mood for all this. Please 😦 .”

“RIA you need to do this, come you would feel good. Trust me.” Said Sunaina.

“See this Ria. Now shopping online has an additional advantage.We could save more money you know. Just three simple steps we need to follow and then we could get cashback and sometimes coupons or sometimes both .”Said Sunaina.
