“partner!..’sunny and pari shouted and ran toward him.sanskar smiles and sits down.both kids hugs him together.
“what are you two doing here?”sanskar asked after breaking hug.
“today is our semi final match..”sunny said quickly.

“you!…”sunny forward toward her but pari runs and hides behind swara.sunny also runs after her and both start fighting while swara was trying to stop their fight.during all this sanskar was doing his favorite work of staring swara.
Meanwhile a small boy comes in front of him and crossed his arms over chest.
“why are you starring at her?”he asked in anger filled voice.sanskar shifts his gaze from swara to him.
“and why should i tell you this?”sanskar asked in serious tone.
“stop starring at my future girlfriend…”boy glares at him.sanskar looks at him from top to bottom and laughed loudly.
“don’t laugh…i will tell her”boy said angrily.sanskar quickly holds his arm and controls his laugh.
“what is your age?..”sanskar asked while chuckling.
“why should i tell you this?”boy asked with both raised eye brows.
“have you seen her age…..”sanskar said in calm soft tone,amused from that little boy and looked at swara.he was dumbfound there.swara was sitting betwen sunny and pari and was laughing whole heartedly.at that time rain drops started falling down/
“yeah!!!!!”all kids hooted loudly and starts jumping in rain,including out big girl.

“hey…stop”sanskar comes back in his senses after hearing his warning and runs after him quickly.but reached there in a second.
“shit!..’sanskar rubs his forehead.swara stops jumping,first looks at kid then at him.
“don’t listen to him..’sanskar said quickly,trying hard to compose himself.boy holds pari and takes to side angrily while blabbering in anger continuously.
“oye..where are you taking my sister”sunny said angrily, like over protective brother and quickly goes after them,leaving sanskar and swara alone.
“kids now a days”sanskar muttered and closed his eyes,understanding that boy was talking about pari.
“what were you saying sir…what shouldn’t i listen?”swara asked confusingly.
“are you a kid?…who plays with kids in this age?”sanskar said,making his voice firm.
“yes i am a kid,what is your problem sir?…its my life,i can do whatever i want.”swara said angrily.
“whatever…childish act is only expected from you”sanskar muttered and turned and walked toward house.
“what did you say?..i didn’t hear it”swara said angrily,walks after him and quickly matches his long strides.
“nothing…”he said in firm voice,getting back to his shell.
“no no…you said something i want to…aaa!”
Swara slips because of wet floor,sanskar quickly holds her,saving her from falling.swara looks at him with her big frightened eyes.sanskar slowly makes her stand.rain was pounding on them,making them completely wet.
“are you fine?…”sanskar asked .he was still holding her tightly.swara gulped and nodded slowly.sanskar moves wet hair strand from her face,swara closed her eyes,feeling his touch.

“Why only doll…we will go for shopping then buy whatever you want.”sanskar said with smile.pari nodded viogously and hugs them together.swara smiles.
“If everything is fine then I think we all should go and sleep”swara said at which sanskar looks at her dryly.

“You knew it sunny and pari are on door?….”sanskar asked in calm tone.swaea looks at him,nodded and again continues her work.
“Their parents don’t say anything?…it’s too late”sanskar said in worried voice.
“I never met them but I don’t think they are doing good job as parents….”

“They don’t even come to know their kids are spending night outside because of their fight…you remember when we returned from business trip that day sunny and pari were sitting outside.”swara said shaking her head.
“Therefore you took them with you”sanskar said in deep voice
“You noticed….”swara looked at him in surprise.sanakar keeps silence at that.
