It’s a sunny day. Everyone is playing in the playground. Albert is sitting in a corner. All his friends were playing baseball. But he wasn’t.

The excitement and celebrations of the audiences of two teams were all over the ground. But that wasn’t making any difference to him. Afternoon passed by. The match ended. Everyone left the ground. But Albert didn’t. He was still sitting there.

Evening faded. His elder sister Daisy was looking for him. On her way she met Albert’s friend, Jake. He said that Albert was sitting in playground all alone and didn’t even talk anyone. When his sister asked the reason, he replied that Albert didn’t get good marks in the exam. That’s why he was upset since morning.

Daisy went there and saw Albert sitting in a corner of the playground. She asked him, ‘Hey, what are you doing here? Don’t wanna go home?’’

Albert looked back and saw Daisy standing there. He said,’ Yeah, let’s go.’

His face is gloomy. They headed for home. There was an uncomfortable silence between them.

`You’re really upset Albert, aren’t you?’

Albert looked at Daisy. Daisy had started college that year. There was a lot of change in her . All of a sudden she started to act like a mature. She kinda talks like mom.

Daisy seems like a stranger. Once Albert thought that some evil spirit got in to her.

Moreover she had started wearing glasses. Just for style of course. But it made her look like an old hag.

“Albert! Why are you so quiet? Mum said that you didn’t even have lunch. Let me buy you a burger. You know what, there is an amazing fast food shop near.

I am not hungry.

She stopped. Albert, just because you didn’t do well in the exam that doesn’t mean you’ll act like this. You haven’t eaten anything since morning. Now if you fall sick, whose loss is this. Yours or mine?

He’s just standing like a numb.

Once there lived a beautiful girl name Alina. She always helps others and remains happy.

One day her mother noticed that she was very upset. Her mother asked her, `Why she was upset?’ She told that her exams are knocking at the door. That’s why she was scared. She didn’t want to give the exam. Her mother was really angry at her. She scolded her and sent her to school.

Alina was walking by the garden of the school when all of a sudden she noticed that a beautiful butterfly is following her for a while. Alina stopped and turned around. The butterfly told her, Will you be my friend?’ Why do you want to be my friend? asked Alina. Cause you always help people and stay clean and tidy. Everyone loves people like you.

Alina was surprised. The butterfly said, Today is my last day in this garden. I am gonna leave this place soon. I feel great to see you. If you be my friend ,I will be really glad. When I came here I got your name as a great person who wanted to help people. I will always remember you and tell everyone of us to be like you.

She said, Can’t you stay for some days? The butterfly said, We never stay in the same garden for a long time, we were here the whole day. So, we will travel to another place by afternoon.

Visiting different places is our main job. You should always love your work. Only then the work can be done perfectly.

The butterfly left in the afternoon. Alina thought how excellent thoughts was the little creature caring with it. It is such a little creature traveling all over the city and does not even gets tired instead it loves its work.

On the other hand, study is my work and I don’t love it!

She returned home and shouted, Mom, mom I wanna give exam.’

Her mom was total astonished. Do you know that we should always love our job and when we love it , it get easier for us. My job is to study. From now on I will love it. Only then things will get easier for me.

It was a sunny day. Princess Linda wake up in the morning and looked through the window. The flowers were blowing, birds were singing. She decided to go to hills and play.

Princess Linda went to the king and asked that if she could go. The king agreed but he said that she must stay around the soldiers. She promised so. Then she started for the hills with Ringo, her favorite horse.

When she reached there, she saw a boy crying. All of a sudden, she heard a voice, ‘Hey, how are you?’ She turned back and saw Neno was standing there.

Linda was so happy to see her. Linda said, ‘it’s great that you are here. Now let’s play with my ball.’

Neno said, Wait! Do you know why the little boy is crying?’

Princess Linda said, No, I know nothing about this. I just arrived here.’

Neno said,’ Okay then. Let me see.’

Neno close her eyes and went back on the time and saw that the boy was playing with his ball and it fell down the hill. After that the little boy was crying.

Neno open her eyes and shared the whole story to Linda.

 She said, ‘Don’t you think you should share your ball with him?’

Princess said, ‘But I don’t wanna share my ball. I got it as a present.’

Neno said, ‘Don’t you remember about that day?’

Princess said, ‘What day?’

Neno said, ‘Close your eyes, I will help you remember that day.’

Princess said, Ok, I am gonna close my eyes. I love it when you take me back on time. You are amazing!’

Princess closed her eyes and she went back on time.

Neno said, ‘That day, when your balloons had flow in the sky and you were crying for that. Look at sky princess and feel what your feelings were then.

Princess went back on that day. A strong wind blew her balloons off high in sky.  She felt sorry for the boy.  

Princess opened her eyes.

Neno said, ‘That day you felt too bad. Right? So why are doing the same thing? Always spread happiness than you will get happy with in return.

Princess went to the boy and give him ball.

Boy felt wonder. He laughed; he was really happy. No one would believe that sometimes back he was crying. He thanked her.

That day, she learned a great lesson that is spread happiness whenever you get a chance. Then you will get happiness in return.

‘Papa look it’s raining!’, said the princess. The king looked through the window. He said, `How beautiful the surrounding looks when it rains!’

Princess looked at her mother. The queen smiled. She ran towards the large balcony that was beautifully decorated by plants. She extended her hand off the balcony. She wandered how does it rain?’

The plants were looking so lively! She closed her eyes and felt every drop of the rain. It felt like every drop was not just water droplets but tons of happiness. She turned her face looking at the king and laughed. The sound of her laugh melted his heart. To him it was more beautiful than the rain. She ran to him and jumped on his lap. She said,` I love my family. I love it when we three are together.’ Her curious little eyes were looking at king. The king said,` Do you want to ask me something?’

The princess said `Is it true that the fairies come in the forest when it rains? Once you said that fairies come in the forest near the eastern sea while narrating a story. Can we visit them, please?’

The king laughed and said, `That was just a story, my dear.’

No! I believe in them. Let’s go and find if they are really there now.’

The king said, `As you wish, my princess.’

The king and queen along with the princess started for the garden. They traveled by the royal horses. The princess was traveling on her favorite black horse. She named it Hexie. Her eyes were sparkling. She was wandering if the fairies too love rain just like her. Cool breeze was blowing when all of a sudden a strong wind threw her off the horse. The queen and the king ran to her. The queen said,` You’ve been hurt badly. Moreover it’s raining, you may catch cold. Let’s just go back home. We’ll come here some other day.’ But she wasn’t an easy one either.     ` Mom, I’m a princess and papa said that princesses are never afraid of anything. They fight in the darkest times. And it’s just rain. As a true princess I mustn’t stop here. Now hurry up! The sun is about to set.’ At last they reached the forest. The princess looked at the sea. She never came out of the castle at the time of rain. She was surprised looking at the beauty of nature. At the same time, she was astonished seeing the large blue sea. The forest was full of beautiful plants and colorful flowers. She saw a plant from far away. She asked the king if she can go there. The king said, ’Well it’s your day. So enjoy it!’

When the princess went near, she saw the plant was full of blue berries. The queen stood beside her. She said,` You wanna have some?’

‘Yes but…….”

‘But what?’

`You said that everything should be eaten only after its washed well.

The queen smiled and said,’ Rain water is purer than any water in the world. The berries are washed by it. So you can have these.’ As soon as she ate one, she shouted,` These are the best berries I have ever eaten.’

All of a sudden she remembered about the fairies. She ran to the king and said where are the fairies?’ The king said you may look for them. She looked around but found none. She came to her father and said ‘Maybe they are not coming out because of the rain. Can we wait till the rain stops? Please… ’

The king couldn’t refuse her. The rain stopped but she didn’t. At last she returned back to the king. The king asked, ’What happened dear?’

She said that she didn’t find any fairy. The king said, `Well, I found one.”

Her dull face turned merry. She was on the ninth cloud. There was a sparkle in her eyes. She was so excited!

She asked,’ Where is the fairy?’

Are you ready to see her?’ asked the king.

`Born ready!’ said the princess

He took her near the sea and pointed at her reflection and said,` There she is!’

The princess said,` But….but  that’s just my reflection.’

Well it’s just a reflection as you see. But look deeper, its lot more than that. The girl in the water is you with all your strength and flaws.’

My child, nobody is flawless. But there is a magic inside everyone of us . I can see that in you too.’

She was surprised and asked,`Do I have a superpower?’

The king laughed and said,‘ Well, kind of.’

What kind?’ She asked.

King said, ’The power of goodness.’

Everyone has it but not everybody choses to use it. But I know that my princess will use it and grow it more and more.’

The princess understood the king’s message. She said, ‘Yes papa, I will use and grow it more, it’s my promise. I will become your proud daughter and a wise queen.’The king was pleased and said, Always remember have faith on yourself. Only then you will be able to use the magic.’

Once there lived a rabbit . He was the friend of every animal in the jungle where he used to live. He always used help everyone. One night a huge storm passed over the jungle. Next day after the storm ended rabbit went to see the condition of the jungle. While roaming around the jungle , he saw a gigantic hole. The hole was filled with water.He took a closer look.He was surprised to see that the water was purple! He never saw anything such like this before. He said mumbling, it’s really strange. He started to have an urge to touch the water and see. Just as he touched the water, he noticed his hand has turned purple. He was petrified. He tried to remove the color with his other hand and feet. But the more he tried, it seems more the color spread towards his body until he became totally purple. As he kept attempting to remove the color he didn’t realize he has stepped inside the hole. Then he saw he was right in the middle of the hole.

Within morning the news had been spread. All the animal in the jungle came to see him. He explained everyone how he got stuck here. Hearing that all of them took few steps away from him.Everybody got frantic to see him. No one came near. He kept asking for help.

But nothing worked, no one came forward to help. As if everyone is stranger to him.

Rabbit said to elephant, “You can save me with your trunk, can’t you?” Elephant replied with a mild smile, “Look if my trunk gets colored then the animals in the jungle will throw me out of the society. Do you want that?”

Rabbit said, “Have I not came in any help of yours? I’ll die if I’m unable to come out of here! Please someone step ahead.”

Elephant said, “Rabbit don’t mind. Every one of us will die. So dying is easier but for surviving in society ,we can’t do whatever we want.”

Rabbit replied in a downcast voice, “What are you saying?” Looking at others rabbit said, “Is there anyone who can save me? If I stay here, like this then I’ll die. Am I not your friend?”

Everyone only heard his words. And they spent the time talking within each other. But none came ahead. Then one by one all left. Like nothing happened anywhere. Rabbit stared at everyone leaving one by one.He felt like a forlorn.

Morning faded into noon. Noon also started to fade. And fear nestled in rabbit’s mind.

In came hyena’s group. They laughed and said, “We can save you, a bit of color is the matter, isn’t it? We don’t have the worries about society. Let us be colored as much as it is. Give your hand. Come on give your hand let’s see.”

Rabbit said, “You all will save for sure but you all will devour me as you’ll save me. It’s better to stay here instead.”

The eldest.. hyena said, “Ghosts will devour you at night. Ghosts comes here at night; do you know that?”

Rabbit replied in a sorrowful tone, “You are worse than those ghosts! Go away you all; go away.”

Again that cruel laughter. A group of hyena started to circle the surroundings. Rabbit stared how the surrounding becomes difficult during danger. He is getting scared, it’s like real fear.`Yummy yummy smell of fear!’

After staying for a long time the group of hyena left. In came fox. The afternoon light was starting to flee away. Fox with a polite voice said, “Oh my, what you are in such sorrow. I can’t tolerate it. I’m feeling very sad for you. No one came forward, albeit you have done so much for the animals of the jungle. I just got the news. Look at me? I came running.”

Seems like rabbit soften at his words. He extended one of his violet hand. Fox himself also extended his hand slightly for sure. But he didn’t grab the hand. Fox said in a polite tone, “My friend, I’ve a bad reputation in this jungle, if I save you, in that case you have to do a work in my favor. Won’t you? Don’t be so surprised, I won’t ask too much from my friend.”

Rabbit stared at fox with stunned look.

Fox was still keeping up his talking, “I’ve great bad reputation. From now on you have to praise about me. I usually do wrong works and make mistakes, you have to cover them up. What? Can’t you do this much for me?”

Rabbit replied with astonishment, “What if I don’t do it? If I don’t promise that, then you will not save me. Isn’t it?”

Fox said with a calm tone, “Have I said that? I’m only asking for a promise from my friend. If you stay here you will die, rather than that it is a usual matter. Isn’t it, pal? Isn’t it?”

Rabbit remained silent. As rabbit wasn’t saying anything for a long time, fox said, “Look when someone falls in danger at that time in this he has nothing but his life. That means whatever you have is now yours and mine. But what is mine is mine, not yours. Friend are you understanding what I’m saying?”

Rabbit replied, “Mischievous friend always increase danger. You go away.”

Fox tried to make him understand. But rabbit didn’t talk to him anymore. At last fox went away with a sad mood. Before going he said, “Friend it would have been if you had a bigger heart.”

Afternoon was fading and turning into dusk. Right at that time rabbit saw that a monkey and a group of ant quarreling were coming this way. What an argument! As if no one going to spare each other.

At one-point rabbit ceased their argument by scolding. Being scolded everyone became quiet. Then seeing the violet colored rabbit, the queen ant became very surprised and said, “Who are you, son?”

As rabbit told everything, monkey and the group of ant said in chorus, “You are that rabbit friend of ours. And no one came to help you.” “Wait a bit, wait a bit” the monkey said as he went right, the group of ant went left. For a long time, there was no sound. On the other the darkness came in all of a sudden and swallowed the place in darkness. It was so much dark that rabbit couldn’t even see himself. Sudden in dark rabbit realized something was pouring one by one on him. It isn’t snake, is it? Rabbit tried to jump. And at that moment from the right monkey and from left group of ant screamed, “Catch, catch the rope, catch.”

Rabbit understood one from right and from left one after one vine ropes are falling on him. As he grabbed the rope two team from two side started to pull him. He came out of the water in darkness. Rabbit being beyond happy thanked the creator. At that time he remembered, alas what have he done! Now the monkey and the ants will turn violet. But for darkness no one can see that. Alas, alas what have he done! He hadn’t told any of them about the story of being violet. He told about it in high pitch tone. Then the monkey and group of ant gave him solace by repeatedly saying, “We have heard a lot about you helping others. Think about that can’t we do this small thing. It’s the least we could do. If our body color changes then let it be, we are able to save that’s the main thing and we are happy with it.”

Next day at dawn when rabbit woke up he saw that monkey and the group of ant were sleeping. But their body color didn’t change. It didn’t turn to violet. He started to scream with joy. With that monkey and ants woke up. Then rabbit started to scream, “You all are my friend, you all are my friend.” And hearing that everyone started to cheer and started to dance.

Megha told Mini, “Go out of my room; I’m studying.” Mini either didn’t heard or pretend not to hear as she always does .She laid a bit away from her reading table.

Megha shouted and said, “Do not disturb me. Go I said.” She raised her pencil and pointed the way to the door.

 Mini protested by yowling and left the room. She went towards the kitchen. Mother gestured with her finger that not to come here.

Ah, where would she go? Mini asked herself. The mischievous boy of this house Robin is always at her hunt. Today morning he brought a dangerous brown bushy dog. Since then she can not go out. The dog is tied near the gate. Once it saw her and ran towards her in an attacking stance. The dog is more dangerous than Robin. It will devour her any moment if it gets her. Robin hurts her by throwing up stuffs. But the dog won’t leave her alone. There is no other way to get out.

She can’t go to this room; she can’t go to that room. Robin’s room is not even a option! Robin keeps watching TV all day long in the living room. Only the time he stays at school, the house seems like heaven. When he stays at home it’s just the opposite.

Human beings just don’t understand the matter that animals also has feelings. Sometimes they seem very close. Fondle while embracing unremittingly. Sometimes completely different behavior. Completely opposite, as if she has done a crime. Albeit the food they give; she doesn’t steal any food rather than that.

There are three house beside, she goes there for stealing. She doesn’t steal from this house. But no one sees that!

The door of father’s room is open. It is dark inside. She entered the room slowly. No, dad is not here. She looked around her properly. And then she saw a stranger was sitting under the bed.

The boy was around Robin’s age sitting under the bed. Mini freaked out. Her heart is saying, this boy is not someone of the house.

Danger might prevail. She gazed around her. A steel jug always stays on dad’s table in this room. She screamed out loud and pounced on the jug causing it to fall. She has no other way to alert others rather than this. As the jug fell the person under the bed freaked and bumped with the bed. The sound came out really loud. Father ran out of the bathroom quickly. Megha ran out of her room and mom came running into the room screaming mice. Few fat mice started to come to the house that’s why mother screamed mice; Mini thought so. Last week when the cat found mice same incident happened. Her expensive glass jug was broken that day.

Father flickered the light on. Mini sitting at one corner of the room. But then sound came from under the bed again. Everyone together looked under the bed and saw a boy around Robin’s age. Everyone screamed as if they saw ghost! So, at the end of the Mini was the hero of the house.

From that day everyone cared about Mini. After that if someone see Mini no one says anything. Instead when mother sees her she gives her foods from the kitchen. Megha doesn’t feel disturbed like before when she goes to her room. Fondles her, made a special arrangement to sleep. Father often brings this or that for Mini. Only Robin gives her the cold shoulder. He would throw whatever he has near him when no one was near. But after throwing he looks around him, whether someone saw that or not.

The thief entered a house for stealing and did up and down while holding his ears two times observing his surroundings. He murmured to himself, “It’s the last theft of my life, I won’t do it anymore.”

Saying that he entered through the back door of the house. Doing so it seemed that, no one’s home. Through the little light from outside he saw the house is empty. Alas! The last theft of his life and what a scene.

He went to the adjacent room. Only a bed. There is no pillow or mattress. A pillow would have sufficed. If he had taken that it would have been a solace. Such a miser!

From the suffocating smell it seems the house had been empty for long time. The place where no human stays is the place were snakes and rats play around. Remembering about snake made him frozen in his place. Few minutes. Then with some courage he peeked under the bed. He thought whether to lit up his small torch or not as he looked around himself. He took the decision to lit the torch reminding about snakes. As he lit the torch he found nothing under its dim light. He placed his hand over his head in dread. Just then he thought there is something. Something really small. It can be earring that can be of golden, can’t it be? Of course it can be. Thinking of it he jumped for it.

Pulling it out in the light of torch he realized it’s a spoon. He became sad. After a while he thought the last theft of his life is a spoon. That is no less than anything. He had sold all the stolen item; this time he would use it. Saying that he rubbed the spoon with the towel around his neck. Then there was a sound. The sound came from the spoon. He quickly threw it and got out of the room jumping,

He’s sweating. He couldn’t understand what’s happening. But he had clearly seen blue light on the spoon and the sound, like someone was talking.

That is an old house. No one probably doesn’t stay near. After a long time, he again peeked into the room. There is no light nowhere. It might be he was afraid. Because of snakes fear his mind was jumbled. The sound maybe came from somewhere else and he assumed it was from the spoon. Can it happen? No it can’t happen. Saying it he entered the room and lit the room. Yes, the spoon was on the ground. He picked up the spoon and heard it talking.

‘Thank you. I’ve been locked here for many days. A human used to live in this room alone for a long time, he never peeked under the bed. Thus he never saw me. You found me. I’m happy over you.’

The thief is listening the spoon’s words speechlessly. A spoon is talking with him, a spoon. He had never heard of such in dream. The spoon is standing on his hand. He wouldn’t move a hair or didn’t want to. He thought he will spend many years standing like this.

The spoon is still blabbering. Said, ‘Tell what do you have to ask?’

The thief will laugh or cry. He was confused. He steals for sake of the pain of hunger. And today someone says, what do you have to ask? In life none had said anything this sort or near that. No one has ever talked to him with kindness, with affection in this life. He never heard such. Felt like as if mother is talking. He recollected about his mother. He remembered his mother used to feed him with her own hand.

The spoon said, ‘You’ll ask such things that your ancestors used to own. You certainly know all the humans starting from the first human till you; all are in you. You have their attitude, their wishes and wants, you have everything of them in you.’

The thief thought, ‘What gibberish the spoon is saying. Okay he said what do I have to ask? Okay what do I have to ask?’ He started to wonder. There are so so so many things to ask. Good clothes, good shoes, a car would do, a house. Then he remembered about his wife, son-daughter. He had to ask for them. Their clothes, shoes, utensils, and so much more.

The spoon said, ‘Your father is a school teacher, but how did you chose such bad profession?’

The thief was surprised, ‘It knows I’m a thief. Even knows my father was a school teacher.’ It looks like a great thing has been found. The thief said on top of his lung, ‘I don’t want anything, I only want you. There is no one to talk with me. I like hearing you talk. Now let’s go to my house.’

The spoon said, ‘First you have to ask something.’

‘Ask? Okay I’m hungry. Arrange a feast then. I’ll be happy seeing food.’

The thief watched in astonishment, a huge table beside him, the table is filled with only food and food. What an extraordinary smell!

The thief ran. He started eating. Then he said, ‘Make me a rich man.’

The spoon said, ‘Your grandfather was a rich man so you are given that much.’

Within the blink of his eyes he saw there were two thick gold chain wrapped around his neck. Expensive clothes. The house changed. He is standing in a big house. A huge horse carriage standing in the veranda.

Then he heard someone screaming there was a robbery. He saw through the window; few stout is coming towards this house with big torches in their hand. He saw someone has set huge boats on fire. People were screaming around the place. And the boat was sinking slowly. He screamed, ‘I don’t want to be rich.’

The thief saw he was in the previous house. The spoon in his hand.

Taha said, “Grandma, grandma you wanted to give seven candles for my birthday!” Grandma raised her head and said in surprised tone, “Oh no I forgot, my dear!”

Grandma saw Taha’s smile turned into frown, she’ll start to cry now. Seeing that she felt bad.

Grandma said, “Come here dear. I’ll bring them before evening fades away.”

Taha turned on his heels with his head hanging down. Grandma only saw Taha go out of the room. She called him out in a soft tone. But he didn’t look back. He sprints out of the room. Just then he heard a sound. Sound of a bell! He startled and turned around. Then he ran towards the door and stood there, saw that there was a bell and many colorful candles in grandma’s hand! Taha stared in astonishment. It seemed like he is stuck on the ground out of joy. There are really seven candles in grandma’s hand! Taha extended his hand towards her hand.

She laughed and said, “If you want to get those then you have to give me a big hug.”

Taha started to laugh at grandma’s tantrum.

Tuly startled a bit. Mother is calling. Mother calls her ‘Tul’ when she’s angry. She noticed that she had been sitting like that with the book for a long time. But she wasn’t reading.

As Tuly entered her mother’s room, her mother said, “Dear there was 12 pieces of fish on the table. 2 pieces are missing. Check if they have jumped and fallen on the ground.’ And mother gestured under the table. Tuly stood there in silence with her eyes shut . And started to revise times table. She thought if she stood there in silence with eyes closed, her mother won’t say anything else. And if she revised times table, she couldn’t listen what mother was saying.

Mother said, “I’ve decided that I’ll get rid of Mini . Do you have any objection to it?”

Though Tuly was revising times table loudly in mind, she heard what mother had said.Mini is her pet cat.

Mother can do anything. Mother can really get rid of Mini . For the crime of giving 2 pieces of fish to Mini would result in mother to throw Mini out of the house, that never came to her mind.

Tuly opened her eyes and stared at her mother with wide eyes then said, “Mother Mini will never eat your fish from onwards. I’ll tell her not to.”

Mother said, “Hmm Mini cat has learned to eat fish by getting on the table, we can’t let her stay.”

Tuly said in a crying tone, “Mothergave Mini the fish. Mini didn’t ate climbing up the table. It won’t happen again.”

Mother soften a bit. Mother said, “Your father will arrive now, guest will come alongside. Now I think we’ll have shortage of fish. Already I felt there was less in amount. Now what?”

Tuly didn’t let extend the word and trudged out of the room and sprint to her own room. She looked under her bed, Mini has finished eating. Tuly sighed in relief.

Mini meowed in pleasure seeing Tuly. With that Tuly thought, Mini is saying, I want another.

Tuly said in an angry tone, “No. Ugh… no. No more. Not another one.”

She chased Mini and said, “Mini you have to get out right now. Mother is angry. If she sees you today no one knows what will happen. You run.” Tuly opened the door of the balcony and said, “No more fish Mini. No more fish. Get out now.”
