What is it? I can not believe my eyes. He is free from the chain. No. Actually, the kennel comes out from the earth and he is dragging it! What should I do now? My feet are frozen. Run! Run now! Finally, I can move. But he is running toward me and now he is right behind of me.

 

It's summer vacation. Now I'm in my grandmother's hometown. Because it's deep in the countryside, I can see many animals. Well here, there are very many kinds of dogs. My relatives live in the dense forest. Actually, my whole family on my papa's side lives here.

Oh my god. What are they raising now? It is a huge dog. I do not know its name. But it has lots of black spots on his body! It looks funny. Now he's chained to the kennel. Ok. I can taunt him. I am so courageous and can win. He is a lion and I am a member of the circus.

"Hey, boy! Fight with me! Why don't you come to me! You fool! Say something! Has the cat got your tongue?"I'm running here and there. His eyes follow me.

"Bow wow! Bow wow!"

Oh, poor puppy, do you want to fight?

"Crack!"

What is it? I can not believe my eyes. He is free from the chain. No. Actually, the kennel comes out from the earth and he is dragging it! What should I do now? My feet are frozen. Run! Run now! Finally, I can move. But he is running toward me and now he is right behind of me. "Help! Help!"

I cry. My feet are killing me. I am so tired to death. Still, he follows me. I regret teasing him. Nobody is here. Ok. It is better to give up my life.

"What's going on?"

"Who's that? An angel?"

"Hey, honey, don't do that. Come here!"

He is my uncle. Now, I'm saved. He stops following me. Thank God. I will pray for you everyday. I promise. He asks me why this was happened, but what can I say? I cannot help but cry. From now, I am scared of dogs. My most favorite animal is changed. I bet I will not ever touch dogs again.
