A special place

I feel so alone, lost and isolated. Nowhere warm to go, No one to talk to. My heart felt like winter. Moving to a new home caused all this trouble. Everything was new and strange to me. The newly refurnished house, the school, the environment and even my room were bizarre to me. To make things even worse I could hear the screams and shouts of my parents. They had started arguing since we moved to the new house.

Today was just no exception. I cold hear mum’s cry out about ” where is the French vessel.” Dad would yell back ” I don’t know.” Then there were more screams. The atmosphere was tense. I feared that one more minute for me to stay in the house would drive me crazy. I felt depressed and I just couldn’t cope with it anymore. I felt my heart shattered as the screams grew louder and louder. So I decided to leave the trouble behind. I stormed off from the house.

I wondered off into the streets. I had no idea where I was going. I was just simply following the paths. The time and where I was going didn’t matter to me anymore, as long as I was away from the screaming house. As I was turning the corner of the street, I beamed. I just couldn’t believe what I saw, a paradise! The smell of fragrance wafted through the air. I took a deep breath. Then I trotted along to the place. There was a small lake. It was surrounded by oak trees and blooming flowers. The lake itself was fantastic. The water was so clear that I could see my own reflection illuminated on the water.

It was the most beautiful, tranquil and harmonious picture I had ever seen in my entire life. It looked so calm and I felt as if I was in heaven. I lay back on the mossy grassy bank and closed my eyes. I felt the sun kissed my face and arms and I smiled inwardly to myself. I listened to the peacefulness and heard only birds singing. It was bliss. The sensation of complete satisfaction almost overwhelmed me.

For a while, when I was troubled or upset, I would go to the place to heal my problems. I sat on the mossy grass and just breathed the fresh air. Not needing people to talk to, or anything to listen to, just sitting within this shelter was enough. The place was just simply a miracle to me. As every time I went there I always felt better after it and it brought my confidence back.

As the time passed on, I felt I should tell my parents about this place. Maybe the place would be a good doctor to my parents too. Mum and dad listened to my suggestion and wanted to see the supernatural place. I was amazed. I thought maybe they were curious about the place or maybe they realised that the arguments couldn’t continue as before. They wanted to do something about it. Maybe?

That day I led them to the place. As they entered the paradise, they were stunned by the views. They immediately fell in love with the place. Thereafter, Mum and Dad frequently went to the place. Gradually they argued less and less.

Soon the place became our family’s best friend and best healer. Slowly we got used to the new place. I met new friends and my heart was not lonely anymore. The place was so special and important that I could never forget it. After all the place brought happiness’s to all of us!
