Short Story 3.  RENOVATION

Short Story 3. RENOVATION

A Chapter by Daisie Vergara (Dhaye)


            I was surprised by those few lines formed on my walls. Termites! My house has been attacked by termites. Perhaps I haven’t seen them these past three months since I became busy with many activities. Ah! I have to do something. These little monsters must be eradicated right now, or else my house which I’ve been working on as one of my dreams will soon become termites’ palace.


                I sat in front of the mirror. I saw my reflection like a blurred picture. Do I still know myself now? How long have I been sleeping? Weeks? Months?


                I looked sadly again at my walls. This must be finished! A simple dial in the phone and then it rang. I talked to someone who can help me solve my problem. After a few minutes, a man came and he performed his duty to eradicate those termites.


                But I am not happy with the result. The walls are not the same anymore. There are still some patterns of those lines and I hate to see my walls just like that!.


                Another decision came up-  total renovation of the house. Yes! I have to renovate this house so that I can be more comfortable. 


                Tomorrow, new people will come here and I know they will do their best to make my home a better world to live in.

termites is like a fire, they destroy the very foundation of a home. Short but the lesson imparted is very significant.
