Hello! Part 3 Of Ava’s Birthday is here! Enjoy!

Ava’s Birthday: Part 3

Surjan looked up at me, gesturing with her hands. I couldn’t tell what she was trying to say!

She finally walked back into the living room, picked up my book, and pretended to – write on it?

 I handed her a piece of paper and a pen. She smiled and wrote, in perfect English, Thank you for being so nice to me! I love my bed!

I was shocked! Surjan couldn’t, or wouldn’t, even speak! How did she know English? “Why won’t you talk?” I asked her. She hung her head.

Then, she picked up the pen and slowly wrote,”I am ashamed of my voice. It is different from yours.”

“What!?!?” I said. “You don’t have to be ashamed of anything!”

Surjan looked at me, amazed. “You mean you won’t laugh at me?”, she wrote.

“Of course not!” I said. She smiled and then spoke!

“You are the best big sister in the whole world!”, she said. She ran over to me and gave me a hug.

I heard the door open. My sisters were home. I took Surjan’s hand and we walked out. “Come on, little sister.” I said. “Let’s go meet the rest of your family.”

To be continued…..

Okay, I guess I had just better stop saying that there will be only one more part! I am just having too much fun with these cliffhangers! So there will be a Part 4, which will most likely be the last part. 😉

I hope you enjoyed!

  1. This story really strikes a chord with me. A number of years ago my husband and I were paired up with a college student from Nepal to be his “family” here in the US. He was so concerned that we would have a hard time understanding him, he was afraid that his English wasn’t very good. Turns out it was good, probably better than most American’s! Love the story. 🙂
