Rank 9 Out of 10
At the break of dawn, our doorbell rang. All of us were too tired to even step out of the bed to open the door, but one of us had to do so. I kept thinking who it could be. It was a parcel that was handed over to me by the postman and he took my initial.
One after the other, all of us stepped out of the bed. On carrying the parcel, some of my friends saw me in amazement. All five of us decided to unwrap the parcel and see what treasures it contained for us.
All six of us, studied in the same university and lived nearby a hostel. John, one of my friend, was still in bed, he stretched his body and came out of the room yawing. We were just about to unwrap the parcel when he stopped us from doing so.
We were excited about it except John. “It’s not our property so we should not even touch it at any cost,” John ordered us.
“I know John but if it’s not ours then why is it delivered to us?”
“It must be a mistake and how could you give your initial?” John asked.
All five of us except John had different ideas about what to do with the parcel. I suggested first unwrapping the parcel and deciding what to do further. For sure, we were having splendid ideas about what the parcels contained. One of us thought that the parcel would contain millions of rupees, so we could eat delicious foods from five star restaurants. Similarly, tow of us thought that there would be packets of chocolates. One of us imagined that the parcel was a magical one that would turn into a magic carpet and take us to a wonderful tour around the city. However, all of our thoughts and imaginations went up in smoke.
Apart of some mechanical tools and a few clothes there was nothing. We looked at each other in utter amazement. John couldn’t help laughing and all five of us burst into tears. In the mean while the doorbell rang. It was the same postman who had delivered me the parcel. He questioned about the parcel. In great despair I handed over the parcel back to him. Later on, we recalled all that had happened with us that day and we couldn’t contain our laughs at ourselves.
