“Hey, don’t go out…” her mom screamed. She was five year old little girl filled with lot of curiosities. They are eagerly waiting for popping out as numerous questions. Everything was half boiled in her mind.
On a rainy day. She went out to play. It was a downpour with hailstones.
“Oh! Oh! Wah!! Mammaaa…..what are these??”
“They are hailstones.. Like small ice cubes”
She was very happy and excited. “I can eat them …right??” She asked with widened upright arc of lips and bloomed out eyes. “You can…but..”.
“Okay” she ran out listening partially.
“Don’t eat more you will get cold” mom screamed again.
She was playing with bright smile on her face. Her little heart was sailing on the ocean filled with joy. She collected handful of hailstones and wanted even more. She kept them on the table near the door and ran towards kitchen to get a bowl. She came back and looked at the table. Her smile started disappearing, arc of her lips got reversed.
“Mamma” she called her mom with gloomy voice.
“Where are these ice cubes… I had kept them on the table” She saw nothing on the table but some water on it.
Her mom smiled and said “o my baby!! …Those ice cubes will melt if you keep them like that”.
She came out wandering ‘what is melting ?’. She was really surprised and confused. That little mind was having a lot of question marks in her mind.
‘From where did they come ??’ ‘What was that??’ ‘How will they get melt??’ ‘Where it went after melting??’ ‘Wahh!!!! How can it be?’
Rain stopped. But her thoughts didn’t……
WHERE DID ALL THOSE STONES VANISH ????!!!!!!
