“Ammi! I don’t want Sara in my room with my friends!” said Zoya. “Don’t be rude Zoya” her mother replied. It all started on a sunny Saturday. Zoya’s friends to come to play at her house. Zoya didn’t want her little 7 year old sister to be with them. However her mother insisted on keeping Sara with the angry Zoya. After Zoya’s friends were gone Zoya went to her mother and demanded, “Why do you let her come with my friends? She is so annoying!” Zoya’s mother replied with an angry voice, “Stop it Zoya! I do not appreciate your behaviour you were very hard on Sara. Now go to bed and I don’t want this behaviour tomorrow!” Next day Zoya complained about having a head ache. Her parents found out that she was suffering from a bad fever. She was taken to the doctor, told to have specific medicines with great care and was told to stay in bed. All day long Zoya was in bed her little sister Sara stayed with her all the time. Sara always brought her water, milk etc. At night Sara slept in Zoya’s room and stayed with Zoya all the time. After Zoya was cured from her illness she realized that her little sister had been a great help. She realized how precious sisters are. A lesson was learnt: sisters are a great blessing. Though she had learned it in a hard way she knew she would never be hard on her sister again!
