"Look at me, am I not looking pretty in my new white frock with shining pearls hanging on its frills?" Nikku, a cute girl of seven years old asked her friend Pintu.
"No, my yellow shirt is the best," Pintu answered as he looked at her dress.
"Now I will complain to mummy!" Nikku replied angrily.
"Even then your frock will remain ugly" laughed Pintu as he chewed his toffee.
Nikku's face turned red in anger and she cried loudly "I have never ever seen such a horrible yellow shirt like yours and I will never talk to you ever again!" Nikku said as she started walking away from him.
A man arrived holding a bunch of yellow and white balloons which were swaying backwards and forwards in the cool breeze and were extremely beautiful.
Nikku jumped with joy and asked; "May I have two balloons please."
The balloon vendor asked Pintu "And how many balloons would you like?"
"Not a single one." he replied sulkily.
Hearing this, the balloon seller smiled and said "These balloons look like the clothes you are both wearing, white and yellow," and he gave a yellow balloon to Nikku and a white one to Pintu.
Pinto and Nikku carefully looked at the balloons and then surprisingly looked at each other. "I think I will keep the yellow Balloon because it looks just like your nice yellow shirt." Nikku said with a smile. "And I will keep the white balloon because it will remind me of your pretty white dress." Pintu replied.
Then they both smiled at each other and holding the strings of the balloons ran towards Nikku's house laughing loudly.
