The Happiness Puddle

Jaibala/ July 6, 2014/ Short Stories

The sky darkened suddenly as she was going home.  With nowhere to shelter herself from the downpour she was drenched within seconds.

As she walked, she missed seeing the puddle and felt her foot got wet. “Bad Luck”, she cursed, as her new shoes got drenched in the water.

She saw the little girl jump into the puddle. Memories of her carefree childhood flooded her. She felt exhilarated as she purposefully jumped into the puddle splashing water. Her mood changed from angry to happy.

She realised that happiness does not depend on what happens to you it lies within you.
