I am doing #atozchallenge2019 on my blog. Everyday in the month of April In will be doing the letters from AtoZ with the with small scenes from my WIP The Sibling Saga. Hope you enjoy with Misry and her sister Moon.
“Moon come on it is time to go home!”
“Just a bit more Di. I am enjoying the swing,” replied Moon from the swing.
Misry waited for her sister for some time. The hands of the clock ticked away but Moon was enjoying herself. In the end, Misry was angry with her little sister. She left her alone in the playground and came back home.
At home she refreshed up and waited for her evening snacks.
“Where is Moon?” Madhavi asked bring in the snacks tray along with a glass of warm milk.
“She is playing in the swing. I called her several times but she doesn’t want to come home,” answered Misry.
“What? And you left her there?” Madhavi was shocked.
“What could I do? I was hungry.”
“But Misry, didn’t you take her along saying you will take care of her?”
“Yeah Ma I did. But she isn’t listening to me. What do I do?”
“Okay. You have your snacks then. I will go and get her.”
Misry licked the cream out of the biscuit quietly. She didn’t want to think of her younger sister. However, there was something going on at the back of her mind. She was feeling restless.
Madhavi returned with Moon after a short while. Moon was crying. Her knee was bruised and blood was oozing out of the wound. Madhavi quickly made her sit in one of the dining chairs and rushed inside to get the first aid.
Misry’s heart churned looking at Moon. She quickly came to see her sister. “What happened? How did you fall down?”
In between her sobs Moon said, “Gautam pushed me off the swing.”
Gautam was one of their neighbor’s son who was a very naughty child and of Misry’s age.
“He wanted the swing.”
Misry’s heart filled with revenge for her sister hearing that but one look at her sister’s face reminded her that it was her mistake. Had she not left her sister alone in the playground Gautam would never have dared to do this? Revenge was immediately replaced by remorse and Misry hugged her little sister. “Nobody can harm you henceforth, you are my responsibility now,” she said.
Moon stopped crying hearing it. She had no reasons to fear anyone now for her big sister was at her side.
