CHAPTER 1: AT HOME
Suzy a young girl of fourteen with dark brown hair, hazel eyes, fair and good looking came rushing down the stair case ,with a vexed face she asked ,“Have you seen my Bebbo? I have searched everywhere in the house but I cannot find him, Mom”.
“Then it might be in the garden” before her mother said another word she rushed into the garden to see her white fluffy silky Bebbo, her cute pet dog with frosty little nose … but it wasn’t there….
Suzy became very gloomy… and as she turned back her Bebbo was standing there with its two little cute feet up which it always does on seeing Suzy in the morning.
Suzy ran towards her dog and hugged it and gave a kiss on its flat snowy forehead.
Meantime Suzy’s elder brother Samuel a tall, svelte, with brown hair and dark eyes, in an irritated tone “Hurry up! Suzy please leave your gruesome dog and get ready quickly or else like yesterday we will be late for school”.
Gnashing her teeth, she said “You are gruesome not Bebbo.It looks as if you were never late for school”
Then a big fight started between the two children hearing this Mrs. Ken came out of the house and scolded them “Suzy go up and take your school bag, quickly get ready, its already very late”.
She ran up and took her school bag and rushed down .The two children came to their mom and gave her a kiss and then they waved her good-bye
Suzy and Samuel were still angry with each other and did not talk a word. Bebbo followed the two kids to the bus stop....When the school bus reached... Samuel ran &got into it... Suzy meantime gave Bebbo a kiss and then she hurried off...........
Chapter 2: Return from School
That day when the children returned home from school they could not find their sweet dog. They searched for him everywhere and then they ran to their parents and asked “Mom and Dad have you seen Bebbo?”
Mr. Ken said “He might be somewhere around, don’t worry kids when he is tired of hiding he will come back to you”.
Suzy crying “We have searched for him in every corner of the house he is not to be found anywhere neither we can hear his movements nor his barking”.
At this moment Pinky came there& seeing Suzy in tears, she felt very sad and asked “What is the matter, Suzy?
“Bebbo is not to be found anywhere, have you seen him” Suzy weeping.
Pinky said “Today I did not go to school as I had a very bad headache in the morning. From the balcony of my room I can see your house, I did not see Bebbo or hear its barking, I thought it might be sleeping ”.
Hearing this Suzy got more worried & she started weeping like a small tot… her brother, parents, &Pinky tried to calm her but they failed.
Suzy was not able to bear the separation from her dear Bebbo & so her eyes was drenched with tears of pain...
Pinky with dizzy face uttered “Suzy, please hear me, sometimes your Bebbo goes to Linta’s house to play with her dog… Linta is very jealous of Bebbo… more over you are not in good terms with her …I suspect her… she might have given away Bebbo to some dog catchers…”.
Suzy started seething, she wiped her tears and said “Pinky lets go to Linta’s house and if she has done any harm to my Bebbo. I will do the same to her duff dog.”
Suzy’s mom warned “You may go to Linta’s house but remember don’t hassle with her, sometimes she might be innocent. I don’t think she is so nasty, her parents are very friendly with us.”
All this time Samuel was standing near his parents he too wished her luck in finding her dog. As soon as Suzy and Pinky left, Samuel went to Tony’s house….
Samuel chuckled “Suzy is mad about her dog …I know well that the dog will not leave her at any cost because the dog is also crazy of her. Well I am not going to see her now”.
Tony in a deep voice “What a brother you are, you can at least help Suzy in finding Bebbo, come lets go, don’t be poky”.
Samuel went with Tony to Linta’s house, but there Linta and Suzy were quarrelling with each other and poor Pinky trying her very best to calm Suzy, who behaved like an untamed animal. Linta was alone in the house her parents were not there........Meantime Tony, Samuel and Pinky pulled her away from Linta but Suzy still screaming “I will show you, you dirty creature.....”
Linta from the other end screaming “You are a donkey there is no use speaking to you”…then she vehemently banged the door..
Pinky breathing heavily “Suzy, please, cool down, don’t be so rude, hear me I think we are wrong, Linta has not taken your dog it might be somewhere else, please do come, let’s go from here”.
Tony came forward & entreated “Suzy come on... be patient, hear us, we all will help you in finding Bebbo”.
So all the four children went to many houses and places in search of Bebbo... but it was not to be seen anywhere… when it became dark, the four kids returned to their houses. Suzy was still very gloomy...When the kids entered their house they saw their parents sitting there so vexed…
“Suzy, stop crying &come for dinner we are all waiting for you, Bebbo is not lost he will come darling”Mrs.Ken coaxed her…..
