A stranger in the Mirror

The puppy lay on the street..wounded..probably dead..but I had no time to bother about stupid puppies..this is absurdly serious..
CAT results are out and I can't find my registration number..
Tension is piling every second and I can feel my nervousness trying to dissipate through my trembling fingers..

Suddenly I remembered when I was getting late for probably the most important date of my life..
I heard yelping and discovered one from the litter had managed to drop inside a culvert..I had to decide..let it wait until someone else finds it..which might not happen at all coz of the blaring traffic...or take the efforts myself..

With leather and jeans and my favourite T ,I set down to work. (much to the amusement of construction workers on the opposite side of the road)
Removing the heavy cover to reach the canine in the conduit..still yelping..I soothed it with soft whispers...

The mother arrived in a while , Grr-ing at me only to realise it is me..her daily catering service.

I left the scene with the bitch licking her ward clean...
a clear conscience.. and dirty clothes

But things are different today..
I had invested some months of my life to take this test..n when results arrive..I can't reach it..

No matter how the score card looks like...or which institute I get through ,through CAT or otherwise..
I will know I will never be the same again...

Coz a part of me has died with the puppy today...

@MMM
Mucho Gracias Senor..
I was really upset when I scripted the post.

Present status: CAT admit not found yet

Tried to make up for my callousness by offering the mother a cake after I finished posting a few documents(U guessed it right-requisite of another entrance)

She hurried without even saying a thanks..just a quick wag of a tail n wet look in the eyes..she went and placed the cake btw the remaining 3 of her kids..

Once a female becomes a mother,I guess,she ceases to be anything else

You aught to change your blogger name to poignant lady or something like that. Each post much more than the previous. Poor puppy though. Had a similar experience once and I simply walked on. Tried calling the blue cross later, but by the time they came, the dog was dead. Thankfully no guilty feelings.

"nervousness trying to dissipate through my trembling fingers.." poetic.
"Once a female becomes a mother,I guess,she ceases to be anything else" WoW. One couldn't have been more apt in describing motherhood.
