One day I got this idea to write a little dialouge of what Leah from the Bible might be thinking. You know, Leah Rachel’s sister.
If I could have anything inthe world I would choose to be beautiful. All my life my younger sister Rachel has been more beautiful. Boys and even men gawk at her as she walks by. Father calls me tender-eyed. I tried not to let it bother me but deep down I despise it. Rachel hates that I am older but I don’t see how that’s better than being beautiful. At least guys want to marry her. Today cousin Jacob came and to prove my point he ha all eyes for Rachel. Father asked him what wages he wanted for his work. Do you know what he said? “I will serve thee seven years for Rachel they youngest daughter.” I almost cried after I heard that.
Seven years later
The seven years are up and Father in addition to planning the wedding, secretly wed me to Jacob instead of Rachel! I thought for once I could revel in my position of older sister. Jacob and I had a wonderful wedding night until he found out it was me this morning. I just wish for once a guy could be happy that it was me. He then agreed to work another seven years for Rachel! Somehow she always gets what she wants.
