He's white. Radha's not.

Radha stared at the love of her life, her eyes filled with tears. She reached for Tom's hands and clasped them, tightly. "I'm so sorry." she sobbed.

Tom was confused at Radha's tears and at the same time worried about her. "Sorry about what?" Tom soothingly replied.

"I can't be with you anymore. My father..." Radha started gasping for breath. "He won't allow me to have a white boyfriend... he won't even allow me to have a Punjabi boyfriend... he has to be Hindi."

Tom gasped in shock. "Can't you do something? Get him to change his mind! Please! I love you too much to let you go."

Radha smiled even though her face was stained with tears. People in the Italian restaurant that they were in stared at the weird couple, one whose face was in tears, and the other face which was shocked. "I'll miss you Tom. But please don't regret anything. It's not your fault. It's mine." she said, looking him in the eye. Then in less than a few minutes, she ran out of the restaurant and ran away, all the way to her home on the other side of town.

This holds true in most cultures -- and you painted the picture with clarity. You are young, but you have a gift for writing and should continue to do it --- take as many course as you can, but never give up the style and the freshness of how you express your self with the pen.
