Sitting on my cozy purple couch, I was reading a famous English classic. No sooner when I turned to chapter 5 ‘The Sweet who suffered ‘ I heard a hubbub sound from outside. As I read the word ‘Sweet this reminded me of my little sparrow friend as I kept her name Sweet . Hearing the hubbub I rushed to the window and pulled off the curtain. I saw some children gathered round in a circle and looking worried. I went out and stood there silently for sometime trying to recognize the incident. As soon as Lily saw me, she called me up there. I saw my little sparrow friend with an injured leg lying on the ground. I too got panicked,when I saw this. Holding her delicately from the ground, I tried to calm her down. I took her inside and made a comfy bed with cotton. In the meantime the children brought the first aid box. Then I and James tied a bandage to her injured leg. Although, the wound was not so deep but then also it was horrific for me. Then I sat with the children and asked them about the incident which scared me out of my wits. They told that they suddenly heard her cry in pain when they were playing. I thanked them for their attentiveness. After they all went out, I fed Sweet with some grains.
I again seated myself to the couch and wondered where was I reading. I saw Sweet resting calmly , which soothed my mind. I took the book and searched for bookmark and soon I realized it was lying on the floor. I guess it felt out when I had rushed towards the window. I opened the book at chapter 7 ‘If you do good, good comes back to you’. Just as I read the word ‘good ‘ it remembered me that I have to buy food related goods. I dressed quickly as the shops were going to close and rushed to the market.I bought my food and also white millet as it was Sweet’s favorite. I went back home and heard her chirping which was not as usual but still it brought a smile on my face .I kept my shopping bag beside her and went for changing clothes. I changed my clothes and returned back there.I couldn’t find her out. I thought her leg is fine now so she would be flying. I assumed she was hiding and playing hide and seek which we play always. So I started searching for her. Inside almirah,beneath the bed,inside the basket everywhere but I couldn’t find her.So in our game, if I want to surrender I will have to call out her name and to accept that I lost. After that she would fly and come back to my shoulder. So I started calling ‘Sweet‘ but she did not turned up. I thought she is not getting me so I started shouting her name but she didn’t came.This made me upset and I broke into tears sitting on my couch. I picked up the book to see if she is beneath it but it was in vain. I opened the book at chapter 9,’The wish granted‘ and at once a magical fairy appeared. She told that she was my sparrow named ‘Sweet‘ .I refused to agree her. Then she replied ‘ I am amazed to to see your caring, loving and friendly nature. It melts my heart .As I am a fairy,I would grant one wish.’ I told ‘I don’t want anything but I want Sweet back. But as it is , you were Sweet you can’t be back. So I want nothing from you.
After that I found myself waking up and holding my English classic at chapter 9. I found my sparrow chirping upon my head. I don’t really know what had happened. Whether it was a dream or the fairy’s wish granted, I honestly don’t know. But one thing is for sure, I can’t explain this little incident which took place to anyone. Soon my family members came and started asking what happened. I told ‘this book is magical because whatever is written here just happened to me. ‘ They asked me how so, but I just didn’t know what to say!
