I Hate You
I Hate You
Years ago, a friend had gifted me a puppy on my birthday. I fell in love with her at the very first sight and named her 'snowy' owing to her soft, glowing fur that was as white as snow. One day, while I was going on an evening walk with Snowy, I spotted a famished puppy lying by the side of the road. I fell pity on her and brought her home. I fed her and gave her a leisurely bath. After, a good one-hour long bath, her beautiful fur got rid of the dirt and dust from the road and she walked out of the tub like a beauty queen. She looked at me with gratitude filled eyes and licked my face to express her love. I named her 'Cleopatra.'
But soon, I realised that the two ladies in my life, didn't get well enough. They used to fight with each other on every trivial matter. They become jealous when I pampered any one of them, right in front of the other's eyes. So, I started dealing with them taking utmost care not to offend any one of them.
As time passed, they grew up and so did their animosity. I thought of a way by which I can divert their attention from each other. I realised that it was time for my girls to raise a family. Soon, Snowy gave birth to three little pups who were her exact replica. I was on cloud nine that day. The very next week, Cleopatra also delivered twin pups. But the delivery was a complicated one. She remained in a critical stage for a few days afterward and then passed away, leaving all of us completely heart broken. Contrary to my expectation, it was Snowy who missed her more than anyone else. She didn't eat much and remained gloomy all day long. It was difficult for me to take care of Cleopatra's twins. So, I decided to give them for adoption. At this, Snowy became furious. She took the pups and cuddled them with her own kids. My eyes filled up as I saw them living happily like one big happy family.
