Late in the night, the clouds roared and it started to rain. I saw my parents ran towards the backyard. The birds in their cage were fluttering; together they picked their cage and brought them in.

Everyone’s trying to deceive me. Why the world is full of ugly people?” she cried

After she stopped wailing, I took a sigh of relief and said, “I know a solution to your problems”.

Rubbing her face with her hands she gave me a quizzical look.

I smiled and moving towards window, I draw the curtains aside. Blackness escaped as the streaks of golden sunshine entered.

You need to open the rusted doors and let the light come in. Go and take a walk in sunshine.”
