A stranger in my own house!

Photo credits: Adam Ickes
I was happy that I wouldn’t be lonely anymore. The new
tenants were coming to my house that day. I remembered the days of my glory
when I was the center of attraction in the living room. But then one day all of
it changed and I was thrown in this corner between these stupid boxes. The
people left and the house remained locked all these years. The new tenants
arrived and looking at me the little girl shrieked, “Mummy there is big monster
there. Drive it away!” And before I knew it I was thrown out of my house!

  10. Dear Reema,

    Poor little ram. It's tough to be tossed aside.

    Welcome to Friday Fictioneers. (If you're written with us before, please forgive me as we had ten new people last week alone. So if I've welcomed you before consider it twice the blessing.)

    Reema, My first comment disappeared, so here's a second one. Good story and well written. Poor thing. Maybe someone will find and adopt him. Well done. 🙂 —Susan
