Short English Story High Heel by Sangram Keshari Senapati

Banya is the only daughter of Mishra Babu. She has a smiling face and that cuteness attracts everybody since childhood. Everything was going well for her, except for one thing; after drinking lots of complan, her height was not growing. Since childhood, she had a weakness for height, so she was thinking to wear high heels to look tall. But wearing such high heels may cause health issues, and for that reason Mishra Babu never allowed her.

During her college time, she used to wear the heels of her roommate and those days were the best days of her life. After completing her master's, within a few days, her marriage was fixed with someone. The height of that guy is quite taller than her and it was like the dream come true, so she said yes to that marriage.

After marriage, when she was selecting marriage photographs for the photo frames, she realized something and felt sad. Height is her weakness, but standing next to a tall guy reflects her shorter. For that reason, she didn't choose the standing images of both.

A few days after their marriage, it was Valentine's Day. She didn't have any experience with this celebration, but in the morning her husband presented her with something and asked her for a dinner date.

Within these days, both husband and wife were figuring out the life of each other and he might have figured out her biggest weakness and presented her with a pair of high heels.
