Babu and his kitten Abu in Snow Grasses
written by May Ann Licudine

Babu laid down on his soft bed and looked at the window. “No snow yet? Sigh…” Babu frowned. He fell asleep and started dreaming…

In a windy foggy day, his kitten Abu invited Babu to a mysterious tall white snow grass field. Babu looked around and touched them. They felt like soft cotton. He wondered why this place was too quiet and strange. Babu didn’t understand what it meant.

“Yes, it’s too calm and peaceful. This is a wishing place. You can tell them what you wish, Babu.”, said Abu gently. Babu felt a little bit scared. Abu noticed Babu’s fear.

“Don’t worry, snow grasses won’t attack you, Babu. Okay, it’s time to make a wish.”, Abu said and nudged Babu.

Babu smiled widely and closed his deep innocent eyes.
“I wish I could be happier… always.”, Babu thought quietly to himself.

Abu read Babu’s thought and kept quiet.

Babu felt something and opened his eyes.
“Hey Abu! How did you read inside my mind???” said Babu surprisingly.

Abu giggled quietly and faked he didn’t know what Babu asked. Babu looked at snow grasses quickly… He was filled with excitement and amazement when bright sparkling stars appeared inside the snow grasses.

“Abu… Abu… What happens to them? What do they mean?” asked Babu curiously.

“Ohh, the stars are glowing…. I mean, they granted your wish.” said Abu. Babu felt touched and happy inside.

“Thank you for inviting me in this beautiful wishing place, Abu. Hmmm, why don’t we stay together here for a little while before I wake up?” said Babu excitedly.

Abu nodded and winked at Babu gently. They continued to travel around the grass field. The glittering stars floated away into the sky. Babu was very interested to see what the sky happened. After few minutes, the snow began to fall slowly. Babu and his kitten Abu jumped and smiled blissfully. They played with the beautiful snowflakes.

Babu woke up and looked at the window…
It was snowing.
