In Law, In Line? 3
Parvati had prepared herself for this, ever since Manjari Maami in the corner house had put the thought into her head.
But when she saw daughter-in-law in the morning - hair tousled, sleep still in her eyes, smiling at her, she nearly din't. Except that she had been warned about being soft, so she steeled herself and in her best 'mother-in-law' voice said, "Decent women don't wear shorts at home..."
The smile dried on her daughter-in-law's lip as quickly as sleep went out of her eyes and hurt and anger entered it. Fisting her hands, she turned on her heel and walked off in a huff.
Parvati sighed. Maybe she should'nt have listened to Manjari Maami after all.
