It is a love story about a girl who realized her love after she already lost him. I don't know how people will judge her. Some might pity her, some might hate her or some might like to treat her as a lunatic and ignored her. It depends on how you try to see her. The only thing I know about her was she was 'lost' since the day she lost him. The biggest mistake was she could not realize her feeling till she has NOTHING on her hand.

You fall in love or you think you 've fallen in love one time, two time or more. But the first love , the first kiss, first touch remain unchanged throughout your life. That's why we say our first love . It's the magic of first love. It might be bcoz in this period we experienced the feeling of loving someone more than your own. There is no greed, selfish, nothing. The only reason to bound them was ….this…LOVE.

Olivia was the daughter of a well known businessman. Since her childhood she was so pampered that she never value the THINGS she has. Though she gets every possible comfort and love, the one thing she wants was her freedom .Her father was not known only for his good works to their society but also for his discipline. Olivia was the only person he try to be flexible at some point of time. Yet..there were certain rules she has to follow-she can't mingle with local friends except in school timing as he believes it's a waste of time and also it gives a cause to excuse from her study, she was never permitted to set her feet out of their gate alone, she should follow her study hours whether she likes it or not. She often mutter to herself

-"I am the only person in this world who is thrown on top of a mountain. From there you see a valley fill with garden of roses, the view looks so pleasing that people envy on where 'm standing but hardy people knew that I will die if I fall from that height with those thorns on my body".

I don't know if she grew up more sooner than she ought to. She began to dream of her princes coming on a white horse, taking her from there into the world she can breath the air of her wish. I can't blame her bcoz this DREAM was the only way through which she escaped the reality of her father's rules . She always try to do every possible mischief whenever she gets the chance.

The only person she often goes for comfort was her elder sister. Unlike her, she seems to be more adaptable to the rules set by her father. She didn't rebel or try to think a world beyond what was given to her. These two different attitudes from his two daughters forced his mind to kick himself and think if his younger daughter is trying to step into the stone of 'SPOIL BRAD'. This was the another reason why he try to be more strict on her.

Like other parents they also 've the same dream-to see their kids fulfilling their undone dream. In Manipur the first career choice they make for their kid will be-doctor or engineer. The other disciplines comes latter on as an optional. His first daughter silently accepted her father's dream . She opted science stream in her higher secondary. In fact she began to take tuition on biology paper. So that she can score better marks and understand clearly. That will help her to go for medical line after some years.

On the contrary, there stands her second daughter. She show no sign of such interest. Her favorite way of passing time was dancing in their drawing room when her dad is not around, sing louder than speaker when she is bathing. She paints everywhere in her room. She loves to read and listen those fairy tales where a prince will come and take all her pain and problem. To her, she was only trying to find the world she loves ,to her father she was trying to break the rampart he has imposed on his family for years. He thought her daughter will become a spoil chap if she didn't reform herself.

It was during her 8th standard midterm exam, her dad went to attend a marriage ceremony. Before he moved out it was made very clear to her

-"Olivia, I don't want any misbehave when I came home. As you 've Maths tomorrow, do work on it. If there is anything you find tough to understand ask your sister. But one thing you will not disturb your sister without reason.

-"But I find the whole thing tough, I mean Maths .I don't like even the cover".

-"Olivia".

-"Ah! Yes dad I will work on it". She gave him an irritating look that her dad hates to see. After he left, for few minutes, she tried hard to stay on her father's tune. She could n't hold on much longer on his tune. She ran to her sister who was in her study room

-"Che,che. "Knocking at her door.

-"What?" She opened the door with a thick book on her hand.

-"Come let's dance. I will teach you a new step that I learn yesterday while watching Rangoli "

-"What? You must be kidding. Don't you reme…." Before the completion of her speech, Olivia pulled her out of her room.

-"Olivia"

-"Che dance". She never listen to other. She does only what her heart says to do. Her elder sister knew how her little sister is so she kept her book on the table to join her dance. Their TV volume was at highest noise with Hritik 's 'kahona pyar hei'. Their dad came back home much earlier than they thought.

-"Olivia, did you hear dad's car ?"

-"No way….you are excusing, just dance. Don't you like the song? Shall I change it?"

-"Olivia, put the volume off plz…". She off the TV.

-"Oh, yes I heard it now. What to do? What to do? Che you go to your study hall."

-"And you?"

-"I will pretend that I was studying here".

-"Study? In this room? Dad knows you well. And you know his anger well".

-"I know ,I know. But I don't 've option too. If I try to run up till my room I will meet him on stair . Plz you go in."

-"Are you sure?"

-"Yes". Her sister went in. Suddenly she remember that the TV must be warm as its been only few second she off it.

-"Oh my god, what do I do". She took her notebook and began to fan the TV .She mutter herself "plz god cool it down soon plz plz".

-"Olivia". A heavy and scary voice was heard from back .

-"Yes dad". Her hand was still with the notebook fanning .

-"What the hell are you doing?"

-"Nothing dad just.."

-"What just?" He walked to touch the TV. She pushed him back .

-"Nothing dad". Her dad is the master detective, specially on her behavior.

-"Oh, now I understand. So you were watching TV instead of studying. Was your sister also with you?" He became more scary.

-"Dad I studied?"

-"Don't lie Olivia. You know well how much I hate lie. Pricilla, Pricilla come here".

-"Yes dad, did you call me?" She came out shivering in that summer.

-"Answer me, were you with her ?"

-"I….. "

-"No dad she was not there. I was dancing alone".

-"What? What? Come again, you were dancing? Ah!."

-"Sorry dad".

-"Now no more sorry. I give up trying to teach you discipline .The only option left for you is to be in a boarding school." Pronouncing a well sentence he walked out.

-"Dad ,'m sorry. I 'm sorry"

-"I won't listen a word from you. Pricilla help her packing."
