According to The Nation, the temperature was almost freezing on that cold winter morning. He looked at his wrist-watch. Still, there were a few minutes to eleven o’clock. Sunshine was everywhere but he felt freezing when an outflow of cold wind came to where he was standing with his small bicycle.
He was a 13-year-old boy with a bicycle standing beside a road. It was a Sunday, a day off school so no studies. A wonderful day for spending sunshine hours in bicycling on the road passing through the small town he lived in. The weather was so cold in the morning that he waited till noon before coming near the road for a bicycle ride which he was about to start.
His friend did not come towards him but waved his hand from a distance before starting his bicycle ride seeing the road empty. In a moment both friends were paddling their bicycles on the empty road.
The speedy car disappeared in the dust which was caused by its fast speed. The driver or any people traveling in that car did not know, because of its speed, that a small weak bird had collided with their car. Both friends saw a minor injury on the left wing of the bird. They quickly reversed direction of their bicycles and paddled fast back to their small town. Soon they were in town nursing the injured bird. They dressed its injured wing in an ointment.
He knew that the bird was unable to fly for a few days so he thought better to keep the bird with him till its healing fully for flying. After a few days when the bird was fully healed for flying, he went to his friend’s house taking the bird with him. Both friends tapped the bird’s wings and let it flew in the air. The bird flew away in the free air leaving a feeling of happiness for both the friends, find the liquor store.
