The Special Surprise

I live in a Bangalore suburb in a villa complex. The place is very peaceful and quiet with no traffic noise and very little pollution. There are lots of empty spaces around. One fine morning as the bright sun was rising, I heard a loud knock on my door. I put on my old red shirt and my sporty blue pants and then raced to the door. A very cute puppy was lying quietly on the first step. I kept looking at it in amazement. I wondered where it came from. I was so surprised.

I didn’t have the heart to leave the puppy outside. For a moment I thought I should wake up my older brother and ask him what we should do. Then I couldn’t resist it. I picked up the soft cuddly brown puppy and carried him into the dark living room.

I didn’t want him to run around and break my mother’s precious showpieces. So I carried him up into my room. I put on the light and put him on my bed. The puppy began to play with my light brown hands. It kept jumping up and down the bed. We played together for a long time. I loved the little thing.

After sometime, I heard mom calling me for breakfast. I went down and the puppy followed me into the kitchen. Mom was really surprised to see me walk in with a little puppy trailing behind my heels. She asked where I got him. After I told her all about how I got the cute little puppy. I requested her if I could keep it. She said ‘’Yes”! I hugged my mother and said “Thank you” so many times.

I felt I had got my wish answered without even asking for it. It was the best surprise to start my day. I felt great…I had made a new friend!
