Her mother had told her, “If you write your wish on the dry sand, 25 steps beyond the point of touch of the waves of the sea for that time, and later, if the waves reaches your wish and washes it away, it’s believed that your wish will be fulfilled”
“I want a Best Friend” she wrote with the help of a stick and waited eagerly, making a mental note of the crest of each wave, and gauging if this wave would ultimately reach her wish.
Little did she know, her wish was already granted and it was just a matter of time when, “Tom”, who entered their family today would become her four-legged best friend.
