The sun peeped through the clouds and the birds chirped in the distance. "Mummy is coming home today from the hospital, Ajay," said the father.
Ajay was five years old and his eyes opened wide. He missed his mommy and wanted her home. Ajay stayed with his nani, while his daddy went to the hospital.
"Today is a very special day. Your little sister is coming home too," said nani.
"Oh yes…his little sister was coming home. He forgot about that," thought Ajay.
The keyhole turned and there was mummy holding something wrapped in a blanket. Ajay ran to her and she hugged him. His mummy strolled to the white couch and sat down.
"Come say hi to Avni," said mummy.
Ajay stood still. He was a little nervous to see his little sister. In fact, he was a little tired of her because that is all they have been talking about for the past couple of weeks. He did not want her here.
"Come over here," coaxed his mother.
Ajay took little steps and finally reached the couch. He plopped himself next to his mother and sighed. He looked skeptically at the little package in his mummy's arms.
"Now I'll let you hold her, but you have to be very careful," said the mother.
Before Ajay could say he did not want to, his mummy placed the little baby into his arms. Ajay looked down at the little face staring at him.
The pink blanket covered her little body, but her head poked out. She had soft skin and very little hair. Her little nose twitched and her fingers tried to grab his nose. She was just about to start crying, but her eyes caught his eyes.
Ajay was stunned. He forgot that he did not want her here and started to play with her and made funny faces.
Both his mummy and daddy started laughing and Ajay was positive that Avni smiled at him also.
