A Story by anxia

I am so sorry i let you go. Even with a heavy heart, i had to.

'NO' I said peremptorily when i was asked if we can keep you. I don't know if you heard me say that since i was inside the house as you waited outside the home in the newly extended part of the house. It was just the place for you to stay you probably thought when you entered- open windows, sand, brick, chunks of wood laid around. I remained unaffected and unwavered to the many pleas of my nephew and  impervious to the arguments my sister made for you. When i heard your whimpers i repressed myself from coming to see you. It's only when my sister decided to give you food against my wish that i arose and came , that to kick you out. To the chagrin of my acrimony your cute little inculpable face melted my heart. But It only took a short while before i returned to my stubbornness. I truly never left it but it just felt like i did with the magic that you did; that look, that whimper, that meekness that almost seemed to have captivated me. 

Your last thread of hope must have been torn away when i shouted you to stay far afield  as you scampered about .
That was the last time i saw you. May be you perceived me to be ornery. I mean who wouldn't after how unrelenting i remained about keeping you?
 
If only you knew my past. Maybe.

I had someone like you some good old years back when i younger. I was naive and my heart untried was   full of love; for everything and for him. Then it happened. WE Lost him. All the love turned to hurt and the hurt to the decision. The decision not to have any one ever again. Life presents troubles naturally. I don't want to aggrandize them by putting up my own unnecessarily. Hope it turned out to be good what i did , dear cute puppy.

Anxia, A nice little story, however you gave the plot away in the first few line's--''No I said when I was asked if we can keep you'' (I knew it had to be a pet) -also your grammer was a little bit off along with not using capitals such as 'I'. Some mistakes by repeating the same word in the same sentence, try always to use alternatives when you can. I would suggest you read it out loud to yourself, by doing so it will highlight how it sounds to your reader. A good effort, and please always keep writing.
Take Care.
