It isn't everyday you see a girl fluttering like a butterfly. Have you seen one?
I did and I want to tell you the story of this beautiful girl, who can close her eyes and say those magical words and "Abra Cadabra" She turns into a Butterfly and fly. She can even choose the color she wants for her wings. One day it was pink with white dots, another day yellow, another day purple or red.
How did she learn this magic of growing those pretty wings?
It was holiday for Devu and she was playing with her friends in a park nearby and it started to rain.
There was this huge peepul tree, it branches swayed "up and down".
- Devu and her friends stood below the tree and waited for the rain to stop. The wind was powerful. At that time, Devu saw a tiny cuckoo that had fallen down from the nest. She called her friends and said, "Come on! Let us save the bird, before a Cat or Snake catches the baby bird". Hearing the name Snake all her friends feared and left.
Devu picked the little bird held her in her palm, the little Cuckoo wet and cold, tried to burrow in her little hands. Devu looked up at the tree and searched for Mama and Pappa cuckoo. She remembered her mom saying that Cuckoo birds lay their eggs in crow's nest. She took baby Cuckoo home and carefully placed the baby bird in her shoe box and filled the box with rags. The baby Cuckoo felt warm.
Days flew, the baby bird started to grow. The plain black Maya started to get colorful.. The shades of bluish green, some yellowish gold, a royal blue.
These days Devu's house flooded with visitors to see Maya the magic bird. It was a Saturday afternoon, when Devu called out to Maya to go out to play. Maya alighted herself on Devu's shoulder and they went to the park. Suddenly the sky darkened and it started to rain. When Devu started to run home, someone called out her name. Devu turned to look and she found a fairy with silver wings and a diamond wand.
After half an hour, feeling tired, she sat on the ground and said the magic word twice and became Devu again.
She thanked fairy, hugged and Kissed Maya. Feeling sad in losing Maya and happy for the boon, Devu went home. She was thinking, "Should I tell mom or not? Is that a lie if I keep this secret to myself today? “. From then on Devu before saying anything, thought about it carefully and then spoke.
Do I need to tell you that the little girl who can flutter like a butterfly never lied again?
