“Om, please do not run. I am scared you will break the vases” Trina warned.
“Don’t worry Mom” Om replied while running.
The Parsi owner of the store was looking at Om with a smile fixed on his face.
Trina felt embarrassed at her son’s attitude. She nearly apologised and said “I am so sorry. I hope he breaks nothing.”
