The Stray Snail
Long, long ago, there lived a lost snail. “I don’t have a home to go back to. I want a home to go back to.” The snail started on a long trip to find its home.
” I once used to reside a stately mansion. But that home is no longer there. It is not there anywhere in this world.” The snail knew that homes do not last forever. “Can’t I go back home. I’ve been always walking for a long time. But I do not want to go back to that house surely.” The snail knew that such homes also existed. Strange houses and ruined mansions. There were different kinds of homes. But no matter how much it searched, the snail couldn’t find its home. “As you are a snail, isn’t what you are carrying on your back your home?” “Not, it is not like that.” “The home I am searching for is a place I can go back to. A place where I feel reassured. A place where I feel safe. It is a happy place.” “If that is the case, it is easy” “From today, I am your home” “When you want to be reassured” “When you want to feel safe” “When you want to be happy, come to me” “I will always be looking forward to you coming back” Though she did not find the home that she was searching for, the snail found a family. The End.
