A child named Siren was playing in the backyard with his pomeranian puppy, who was his dearest one. His mom, John who was in the kitchen called him out for lunch. John loved cooking and usually spent her time in the kitchen. “ Come fast, Siren I have to go to work,” said mom.

Siren went inside dipped in the mud with the puppy in his hand. Mother scolds Siren. At the same time, Father arrives and stops John. “Papa Henry,” says Siren. Siren climbs at Henry’s back and says, “ My tall papa, you are my superhero, ( and you always save me from mummy devil),” he whispered, catching his father’s brown hair.

Days and days passed with fun and naughtiness. One night, suddenly, everyone heard a blast. Henry went to check what had happened. “ Be careful,” said John.

They thought was nothing and went to sleep while Henry was out. After many hours, Henry was still not back, John decided to go out to check on him. To her amazement, she saw Henry lying on the ground covered with blood. “HENRY,” John screamed in terror. Siren came running, “ What happened!?” he said. Siren was shocked to see.

At last, she found Siren lying down in the bathroom, which was not much affected by the blast. She carried Siren and ran for help.

“HELP! HELP!,” she cried. When the neighbors heard they called for an ambulance. She hurried and jumped into the ambulance with her son.

In the hospital, they finally found a spare room where they could operate Siren. Hours passed and the doors never opened. John was pacing around the room, anxiously and crying for her husband and her son.
