I could still remember that day, freshly engraved in my brain!
It was late, around 10 pm, i was on my way back to home by cycle from my late class.
It was winters, i was fully covered in sweatshirt, my woolen gloves on, and my face covered.
My earphones on, still remember the song that was playing on “baby!”- Justin biebers trending song those days.
I was suppose to take a u-turn for my home, but i stopped when i suddenly heard a “scream”.
I saw a small puppy shivering, out of cold! I stopped by then, and looked if i could find his mom.
Unfortunately! he was alone by himself, i didn’t know what to do now, i was a kid, and it was late already..
I took my scarf off and put on him, i also wanted to feed him but, no store were there that time.
I had a second thought if, “i could just go home and then get some help for him”.
Well, then i went by my cycle to home.
All my way home, i was thinking of him, if he could just surviveby any chance!
I reached home! I ran till i ran out of my breath and quickly keeping my bags in my room… A phone ranged, i was there so i picked it up, i still remember how happy was i after that call.
The call that came, was congratulations for my selection by my coach.
It was the happy moment! I shared that news and then we celebrated, that delicious food, everything was perfect.
The next day, off to my school, that morning i remembered something!
I without a second thought, rode my cycle so fast, in the hope to see him.
I was on that u-turn and i couldn’t see him, i was already getting late for my school, so i just took a look nearby and thought he must have went somewhere else.
On my way home from school, earphones on, i saw him, i saw his tail on that u-turn, i was surprised, eagerly i went closer, i could then see his only tail!
And his body apart from him, i couldn’t believe, what i just saw!
I didn’t know what to do, but i was staring him for an hour…
“The guilt” that day was more dominant than the happiness of selection!
