Rony is an absolutely wonderful boy who loves his mother, Stella very dearly and also cares for her as if he’s the parent and Stella..the kid. Rony and Stella lost their father and husband to a brain tumor two years ago, since then, it us just them against the world.
Rony got busy in his college and Stella got busy in earning the bread..both of them were equally responsible for the household chores..be it the cleaning, cooking, grocery shopping or general household work..both of them were running the ship of the household just fine.
Although the loss of Rony’s father and Stella’s husband- Shaun, was devastating, but both of them never blurted out anything, they never cried or never lamented, they pretended to be happy and okay just because both of them wanted to be strong for each other..whereas the truth was that they missed him very much.
One day, Stella got so tired of running around and doing chores and working all day..she was absolutely exhausted..she missed the reassurance Shaun gave her when everything went wrong..she wondered if Rony felt the same..so she decided to take the day off and do a movie marathon..she also made Rony take a leave from college and chores..so both of them started Marvel marathon(Stella’s choice)..both of them watched the movies but somewhere in the middle they got into a serious conversation about Shaun and how much they still feel their presence in the house..that time..both of them hugged each other and cried out for hours.
Then, Rony decided that although both of them loved Shaun dearly, still it was time to move on..to which Stella agreed..both of them decided to give their house a makeover..to get rid of everything that reminded them of Shaun.
Next week they started clearing out the house with tossing away unwanted things…in the middle , Rony found some huge boxes stuffed with comics, they were in the attic..Rony was surprised to see the rich collection and asked Stella whom they belonged to .to which Stella said that those were her’s..she loved reading comic books before Rony was born, she left the habit after she became a mother..Stella asked Rony to throw the comic books away because she was not interested in them anymore..to which Rony obliged.
Later, they started the procedure of getting the house renovated..after a month and a half, they got their house which was absolutely different from the earlier ones..new paint, new curtains, new furniture, everything new.
They finally unboxed and settled everything after a week, but Stella saw that there was something unusual lying in the hall..to which Rony told her that it was a comic book storage unit for his mother .he encouraged Stella to re kindle her comic book reading habits..to which she was hesitant at first but after a little coaxing, she agreed to.
Stella got really happy to see how her son cared for her and she actually felt better after reading the comics. .she felt that the young Stella has visited her again after such a long, difficult time. Stella again indulged herself in comic reading, which Shaun found to be awesome..he even bragged to his friends at college about his mother’s collection.
At the end, Shaun and Stella understood that no matter what, letting go and going on with the show is the most important aspect of our lives. Sticking onto the past makes us only sad and feel sorry for ourselves.
