Shine in Her Eyes|درخشش چشمانش



First year of the university had started and the young students were excited. Boys were looking carefully at the girls to in hopes of finding their match. All the girls were beautiful but there was something different about Ranaa. Ranaa was the one simple girl that all the boys had their eyes on.


Months passed and between all the richest and handsomest boys, Ranaa chose the smart, quiet and ordinary boy who always sat at the back of each class. The boy didn’t have much and could only take her for cheap sandwiches or Tuesday movies, because tickets were half price.

Ranaa loved books and movies, so the boy bought her many used books because that’s all he could afford.


They would read and interpreted the books for hours on a bench beside a pond near their dorm.


There was always a special shine in Ranaa’s eyes which was a sign of love, happiness and satisfaction.


Many of her friends told her that she could find someone better, with more money. They said that he couldn’t make her happy in the future. But Ranaa loved him, she had a simple beautiful relationship that was all she needed.


One of Ranaa’s Professors was very young and loved her very much. The professor went to Ranaa’s father and asked for her hand in marriage.

Ranaa’s family was very poor, so their daughter marrying the professor was of great benefit to them as it would bring great changes to their future.


Ranaa married the Professor for her family’s sake. Years passed, one day her friends went to visit her. She had a beautiful house, a library full of new books, her kitchen, living room, swimming pool, and car all shined, but not her eyes.

  1. such a sad story! You tell it so well. It looks like Raana and the ‘poor’ boy brought out the best in each other. It’s so hard to find someone that can do that for you. What a shame the parents interfered. I really am looking forward to reading your book. You write so well!

  2. This is a touching and sad story. The shine gone from her eyes, trapped in a realtionship devoid of love. But I think that this happens in life and the parents are not always the ones to blame. Once again a well written and engaging story Laleh.
