Hurrah! I’m on top of the sky,” the red kite said flying high.
“Hey, don’t go higher. There is a chance of strong wind. You may tear apart or break your thread,” advised the black kite.
“You are just jealous of me because I am higher. Accept that I am the queen of kites. I declare myself the Rose Queen,” said the red kite.
The black kite did not like this boasting.
The black kite tried again to make Rose understand, “Don’t be silly. I only want you to be safe.”
“You are talking too much. Wait, I will teach you a lesson,” said Rose as she suddenly swirled in the air and came near the black kite. She started circling the black kite and said, “Fun starts now.”
Rose crossed the Black kite’s thread. The black kite was shocked by Rose’s attack. She did not get a chance to escape. Her thread broke and she fell on the ground.
“Wanted to teach me a lesson, did she?” said Rose, making a face. “I am the queen of the sky. I don’t have to listen to anyone.”
After seeing this, the other kites kept their distance from Rose.
“I want nothing to do with these small kites,” said Rose to herself, looking up at the sky.
Aarav was flying Rose. He was still learning to fly kites but Rose was smart. The moment Aarav gave her a free hand, Rose would go up in the sky and that’s how she was flying on the top.
Rose thought to herself, “The scene below me is so beautiful.”
Flying in the sky, she was unaware of the trouble approaching her.
“Hey look, those clouds are coming towards us. There may be a storm coming,” said the other kites to each other. Kite flyers started getting down their kites.
Aarav also saw the darkening sky and started to pull on Rose’s thread but Rose wanted to be in the sky longer.
While Aarav was trying to pull her down she was using her full strength to fly in the sky. Aarav got tired and stopped pulling the thread.
Suddenly the wind pitched up. Rose was unable to control herself. She started fluttering like a leaf in the wind.
When Rose turned her back, she was stunned to see the entire sky covered with dark clouds.
“Hey Aarav, what are you looking at? Get me down fast,” shouted Rose but Aarav was not looking at her.
Suddenly, a storm hit. Now Rose was blowing away with the wind. She was scared of falling down in faraway place. It started to rain.
“What should I do now?” thought Rose. The rain made her paper heavy and she started falling down quickly.
In the midst of this, Rose got stuck on a tree’s branch and there was a tear in her. Rose’s arrogance had washed away. By the time she reached the ground, she was hurt.
Luckily, a boy saw Rose soaking in the rain and took her home with him.
“I will mend this kite and fly it,” he said to himself as he applied tape on the torn places to mend her.
“Thank you,” Rose said slowly.
“I may have been pretty earlier, but now I have become humble,” Rose said to herself. “I will never be arrogant again.”
