A Simple Wish
She stood there with her eyes transfixed, full of wishes that will never be fulfilled in her lifetime.
“Go away you piece of rag and don’t block my customers“, shouted the owner, ignoring her wishful eyes.
He got up and took his usual order of chocolate brownie icecream from the counter thus walking out of the icecream parlor.
“Take it“, he said with all the kindness but the five-year-old took it only after persistent convincing.
Her eyes which were full of sadness had lit up and her face that lacked smile now glowed with happiness!

A glum face of a child can be lit up with Ice-creams and chocolates and it is easy to cheer them up. Hope every poor girl gets to eat these goodies. a sweet write-up.
Yes its easy to cheer up the little ones, but icecream indeed bring a smile on everyone’s face too 😀
the shopkeeper did have a good heart then .. or was it someone else , I am confused now

It wasn’t the shopkeeper but a regular customer there.
The smallest of gestures can bring an instant smile on anyone’s face 🙂
