Sakshi's Kite4 mins 24.7K 4 mins 24.7K
When Sakshi was ten, she had a lovely kite given to her for her birthday. It was a big one, and it had the face of a cat painted on it. Sakshi was very pleased with it. "I've never had a kite before," she said. "Never! This is a beauty. And oh, what a fine tail it has!" The kite was red and yellow, and it had a tail of brightly-colored paper. With it had come a big ball of string. "And it's fine windy too!" said Sakshi. "So it would be just right to fly the kite this evening." She took it to the fields, where the wind was very strong.
Her friends Riya, Aayush, Priya, and Rahul saw her carrying it. "Many, many happy returns of the day, "said Riya. "Is that one of your presents? Can we come and help you to fly it?" Sakshi, who was not good at sharing her things, replied, "No! I want it all to myself." "You are a selfish girl. The other day, you wouldn't let us ride your bicycle," Rahul said. Sakshi didn't say anything. She turned her back on the others and went on by herself. Sakshi unwound a great deal of string. She threw it up into the strong wind. It flew high at once. "You are a splendid kite!" called Sakshi joyfully as she watched it climbing into the sky. She began to run with the kite and after a while found herself deep inside a forest.
She was now very tired and thirsty and thought of returning home, but she lost her way. "I'm stuck inside the forest that is far away from the fields. Sakshi," she wrote, pulling out a small diary and pen which she always carried with her. After tying the note to the kite, she let the kite fly into the air. She noticed a large mansion in front of her. The house appeared tall and narrow from the exterior, constructed of enormous dark gray stones with a rough texture, all of which were sandwiched together by disintegrating cement. Climber plants grew up the house, twisting around the drainpipes.
She entered inside, calling out, "Hello there! Hello, is there anyone there?" However, no one responded. The hallway was dimly lit and reeked of dust and old age. She began mounting the stairs while looking for someone. She climbed the stairs to the first floor and entered the first room. The door had been left flung open for a long time, or perhaps someone had already entered. Chills ran down her spine as she walked inside the room, and she had the uneasy feeling that she wasn't secure in this place. She descended the stairs, and as she was ready to exit the house, the door slammed shut with a tremendous bang. Sakshi attempted to flee through the windows, but they were also shut. She began to cry.
When the soaring kite reached the children, they were taken aback to see it plummet to the ground. "Hey buddies, it's Sakshi's kite, and it seems like there's a note connected to it," Riya added, pointing to the fluttering kite. "I'm stuck inside the forest that is far away from the fields," she read aloud after catching the kite. "Oh, we should go and assist her." "Why should we? I don't see why we should. She refuses to let us play with her new toy, but she does want us to assist her with her troubles "Aayush stated. "Don't be so cruel, Aayush," Riya advised. "You don't have to come if you don't want to, but I'm going anyhow. I believe we should seek assistance from Sakshi's parents," Priya suggested. They swiftly arrived in the forest with Sakshi's parents and began searching for Sakshi. They looked for a long time but couldn't find her. Her mother began to cry and became deeply concerned.
Sakshi heard their voices and exclaimed, "Mom, dad, I'm stuck in this house!" They all dashed towards the home in an attempt to save her. The huge door opened as soon as they arrived in front of the home, and Sakshi hurried out, hugging her mother. "Sakshi, Oh My God! I was quite concerned about you. Thank God you're all right, "Her mother expressed her thoughts. "How did you find out that I've been stuck here?" Sakshi inquired of her parents. "The kite flew to your friends, who noticed the note attached to it and told us. You should be grateful for having such wonderful friends, "her father stated. "Thank you so much, guys, and I apologize for acting so rudely previously," Sakshi remarked.
