It had been four days. She was sure it had been four days, He might have known too had only he cared to know. Four days without the presence of one’s parents never hurt any child, He consoled himself, and this place is full of so many things that I could do.
She knew what he must be thinking. Looking at him run around the dry beach of the newly mapped island assured Her He didn’t care to realise He was stranded.
None of them missed their parents. Not that they never had seen any, but Their father was mostly off at sea and Their mother was too busy thinking about him. So all that they grew with was Themselves and the pair of similar looking soft bears that Their father gifted to them as they entered Their first room for the first time. Yet, She knew they must need Their parents. But WHO can make the boy in the blue shirt and short brown knickers, which were smeared in sand, to understand that there was more to today than TO-DAY…. So She let him loose…
To hobble about and pretend to scare the trees with a “Skadoosh!”.
Don’t think I don’t know what you’re upto, He said while he made something like small bows from coconut shells, I know You’re wanting to go back home. She ignored what was the blasphemous truth to Him. You see you can’t see how much fun this is- being at s place where no one points you wrong or directs your steps, Now his bows were of the perfect shape to be cherished. You can’t run away from things which are meant to be, She mumbled. ” Who said I’m running, I’m just telling YOU us being here is meant to be and that’s where we should stay”.
Something pushed. She couldn’t say but Her lips were no longer in her strict command so she said “You know us here, we don’t have any significance, its a huge world for us to live in such a people less place”.
Well for the next 10 seconds the pea brains, for the first time in Their life of 12 years thought the same thing- How BIG is the world, really???
I think dad has seen it all, He broke the ice, he never stays home anyway. And She started on the Math… Their dad was 65 years old and he had already traveled the world. Was the world really as small that one could cover it in 65years? Well if that’s true then they have seen quite much of it already. But all they saw was their yellow building called school, three white buildings called Home and one green area called garden and now This… Whatever this place was.
But while She thought all that, He was already taken to a new tree he hadn’t scared yet…
And for all He cared to say- You know the world maybe huge but we are huge-r 😀 because we can scare down trees!!!
She only smiled.
