Behind the coconut tree 🌴 (Short story)

Every evening she used to take her little one to that park. Playing hide and seek with his mamma was Rithvik’s favourite game.

“Rithu, mamma knows where you are.” As usual she pretended to search him here and there and moved towards that coconut tree. It was his regular hiding place. He never got bored of hiding behind that particular tree and enjoyed when his mamma caught him after her ‘searching drama’.

But that day Sheethal did not find him there 😳. She looked around. Her heart skipped a beat. Within a blink of eye, she missed to figure out where her child disappeared 😦.

There was a huge crowd in the park that day. A group of kids were playing nearby. She thought he must have ran towards them. But unfortunately he was not there. She asked some people around whether they saw her 2 and half year old boy. They said they have no idea.

Within few minutes she felt like losing control over her emotions. Many fearful thoughts crossed her mind. Was he kidnapped?

Tears were about to burst out from her eyes 😒. Suddenly she heard a soft giggle behind a bench. There he was !!

It was just a sign that her kid was growing. But that took her breath away for few seconds..
