Page – 49 > Scary sound of the drums

Dear diary,

There is a lot of hustle and bustle in the streets these days.

Normally, our colony is quiet, but since few days there is a lot of extra music and crowd in the colony.

People are singing in loud speakers and drums keep playing for most of the day.

Children dress up and roam in groups, and the air smells of sweets and incense sticks.

This is something very new for me. I have never seen our colony so lively and lit.

Mama told me it is festive season and the people are preparing for the upcoming festival.

The first time when I heard the sound of the drums in our colony, I really got scared.

Then mama shut the doors and distracted me with a treat. She also played hide and seek with me to keep me away from the loud sound which was now not so scary.

This morning when I was on the terrace, I heard the drums once again.

My ears popped up and my eyes widened, and I could feel my heart beating in my chest.

I began to look for mama and she was already walking up to me as she knew I was scared.

Mama rubbed my back and told me to fight my fear. She also reminded me that I’m a brave girl and I must learn to be like Selfie, who was rushing downstairs.

I followed Selfie to learn from her, and when I reached downstairs, I saw her hiding under big mama’s car.

Selfie was also scared of the sound of the drums and she didn’t want to show me how scared she was. That’s why she ran and hid under the car.

Is this what mama was telling me to learn from Selfie?  

This is baby Hyena signing-off from under the car with Selfie.

See you tomorrow again! Bye-bye!🐾
