Anything for my girl…

Once back from office…all he could think of was some moments of rest…

But, she was getting cranky…she wanted him to spend more time with her… wanted to feel that she means family to him…

He sensed her discomfort…and took her out… she held onto his hand tightly, as if never want to let it go…

He was ready to do anything for one glimpse of her smiling face…

She spotted a helium balloon vendor at the crossroads…and demanded balloons from him…

She was mesmerised to see big colourful helium balloons that went up on loosening the thread and came down on tightening it…

He readily took those balloons for her and put his hand in pocket to get some cash…

At that very moment his grip over the balloon thread loosened and up went the balloons… he jumped and tried to get back the thread…but in vain…balloons went up…Up and up…

He thought of buying another set of balloons for her… But she stopped him…

He could see her smile and she was utterly pleased….

She loved the thought that those balloons were free and that she was the reason for them to be so…

And she said to him-‘Dad, they look beautiful up there and not in my hand…’

For her… she experienced her ‘we’ time with her dad….

And for the single Dad in him…the day was made…!!!
