Little Joys

“Peek Peeeeeek” the car horn rang out as the little girl pressed it with delight. Outside a man was surveying the damage done to the car. “Two dents, smashed​ tail lights…” 

He had worked day and night to buy this car and was loathe to tell his neighbours that it was damaged in the first week itself. How he hated the other driver who banged him.

“Daddy, come on. Let’s go” he looked as his daughter blissfully blew the horn her lips curled up in a smile. Her sandals were on the floor as she stood on the driver’s seat lollipop in hand. She then drew a smiley on the fogged windshield.

I guess it is the little joys in life that matter the most.
