We all are special in our own way

In the world of wolves……

Once upon a time there was a sheep living happily in a forest with his daughter Lucy. Lucy was caring, jovial, jocund and full of life. Animals in the forest were very fond of her.  Her father always encouraged her to be selfless and kind.

Once while she was asleep, she heard loud roar of a pouncing tiger approaching towards her after killing her father. In a moment everything changed. Her world turned upside down. She closed her eyes but suddenly a pack of wolves saved her. From one disaster to another …she belonged to nowhere. She was presented to the queen wolf, Magma for feasting by the pack of wolves.  Magma came close to her ……. Lucy’s heart started pounding fast and she started bleating.  Magma’s heart melted and she ordered that nobody will harm this lamb. Lucy had no idea what was going on.

Within a day or two Lucy tried adopting their way of eating, living but she failed miserably. Cubs laughed at her for being so innocent and quiet. The same innocence which was a blessing for her was a curse now. This made her loose confidence. She was missing her friends and father. Magma tried her best to teach hunting, attacking but it was of no use. She was a lamb in the world of wolves.

Lucy cried as she started feeling weak. She thought she can never be as strong and fierce like others and it’s a shame. Lucy thought of running away from there but the world was new for her and she was alone, don’t know for how long but she was safe there.

Magma was becoming old and sick. Lucy was concerned and she started taking care of her. She was jumping and dancing to make Magma laugh. It was because of her efforts; Magma became stronger again. She changed not only physically but emotionally as well. Everyone in the pack appreciated Lucy’s effort. They were loving her more but their way was same but still the warmth was missing.

Magma took Lucy to a new place quietly at night. She saw a herd of sheep enjoying there. The spark in Lucy’s eyes were never the same. She told Lucy to go and embrace her world. Lucy was hesitant but this is what she always dreamt of, her friends who were enjoying and living life like her. The moment was perfect amalgamation of joy and sorrow. Tears were rolling out of their eyes but they knew it was always meant to be like that.

Magma hugged Lucy and told that we all are special in our own way. Embrace your qualities and nurture it in right direction, for that will give you strength and confidence. Lucy was so happy to meet her people and from that day Magma used to go silently and watch Lucy playing with her friends as she loved Lucy like her own daughter and she never expressed it because of the inbuilt arrogance.
