The Book on the Road

The Book on the Road

On his way to school, a boy found a book lying by the roadside. it was an interesting book on space and the boy wanted to keep it. But, thought that someone was looking for it and so so I kept it in his back and enter the school with his eyes wandering left and right, looking at everyone and trying to find the owner of the book.


Once he entered the class, he put his cold hands on his ears to avoid the noise. Some boys were shouting, some were playing and some work busy making paper planes. The boy had been on a leave for two weeks and was very happy to come back to school. He loved science and always desired to be an astronaut. It was 7:30 and there were 20 minutes left for the assembly to start. 

"I mustn't hand over this book to the lost and found group. I will find its owner myself." He whispered to himself and started looking for the book's owner. he asked every student on the ground floor but no one knew anything about it. Now, he was trying to convince himself that this was his book. He walked into his class and join the queue to the assembly. 


When he came back, eager to read the book, he opened his bag. His eyebrows shot the ceiling and his jaw dropped on the ground when he realized that book was stolen. I couldn't find it anywhere. Tears rolled down his eyes when he thought, "I will never get it back again."

Soon, he was called to the principal's office. He wiped his face and set his hair on the way. His eyes shine and a gigantic grin spread all over his face when he heard the principal saying, "this is a gift from me to you. I know no you love space very much. You are selected for the state level space quiz competition in Chandigarh. Have fun!"

He didn't understand how the principal gets the book but he was very happy to get it.
