One day i was walking on the street when i saw a little dog, the poor little creature looked hungry, without a home, it just looked like he was one month old more or less, so i decided to take him to my home.
At home, i gave some milk to the little dog, which drank it with such happiness wagging his tail, gave him some fresh tuna too, i swear i saw that doggie smile. When i looked to him it seemes so happy, i decided to take care of him now, maybe find him a new home since i can’t take care of him for too long, my college studies won’t allow me to take care of him.
6 months later.
So six months passed away, the little dog grew up and stayed with me, i couldn’t get him away, he looked so happy! I’m a very sensitive person, and i started to like him.
The little dog now goes with me everywhere, he walks side by side with me to the grocery store or when i go to the library he stays outside until i go out. I love reading, so instead of reading at the library i take the books to my house and read them next to my dog, which always falls asleep next to me. Life keeps going as normal now, i am so much grateful with life, who gave me this little piece of happiness.
3 years later.
The dog grew up, now he is a big guy! Right after my graduation i decided to take my picture with him, it was such a lovely moment, finally out of college, new life and new experiences to live, all of them with my big friend, who was with me all good and bad times.
We decided to go to the beach on vacation, just him and me. His first reaction when he saw the sea was to run over the water and jump, i couldn’t realize how happy we both were at that moment, both of us, a week to relax and some freedom to live.
6 years later.
I have so much work to do at the office. They want a new design for this week, i am so stressed now. I don’t have time for anything, i barely eat now, has some time to spend with my dog. He is now sad, but i hope he understands that the life we have now is thanks to the work i have.
At night i came from work, i am so tired but i finally finished, they paid me a good amount of money, now i can buy some things for me and some for my big boy.
But… Where is he?
I looked for him around the house, under beds and finally found him on the kitchen, i forgot to feed him when i came home.
“I am sorry, forgive me?” I said.
The big guy just licked my face and wagged his tail, that’s my boy… I get up, took his bowl and filled it to the top with his favourite tuna. He loved tuna more than canned food that usually normal dogs eat, i don’t know why but that makes him so special.
2 days later.
It’s night now, i decide to take a break and watch a movie on tv. My dog is now at my room sleeping, he now is too weak to play. Almost 10 years with me.
I had the curiosity to watch the calendar, and exactly. Today we have 10 years of knowing eachother, he is too old now, and i am so happy and proud of him. I just smile each time i listen to him.
As i’m starting to fall asleep watching the movie i hear a strange noise, i open my eyes and seen that i wasn’t the only person in here. It was a thief, aiming to my head!
“Give me all the money or i kill you right now!” The man said putting his gun to my head.
“I don’t have much money! i just paid some bills and i ran out!”
“Well if you want to have it this way, then goodbye bitch!” He said shouting at me.
My skin was cold, i knew i was about to die, my last day on here. I can feel the movement of his finger slowly pulling the trigger
I close my eyes in calm and i feel a rude movement, the gun was off my head, i fell down to the floor shocked, can’t open my eyes now, i just hear voices saying:
“Get out of her idiot! Don’t do nothing to her! Get out of our home!”
Soon as i end listening to them i hear the sound of a gun, the gun of that evil man just fired. I opened my eyes, saw the man running out, bleeding from his face, looked for the carpet and my horrible surprise was to see my big boy dead.
I couldn’t resist to cry in that moment, my poor baby is gone, he being 10 years old had the strengh to come to here and save myself. I hugged him, looked to his eyes, the same look he gave to me when i picked him up from the street. He saved my life.
1 day later.
He is now sleeping, my little baby. The one who was with me all the time. I never had too much friend on college, not even at work, he was all my life, like a real person to me. Crying in front of his ashes i am. Without hope, alone. Then i heard the same voice who talked that night, who shouted to that murderer.
“You are not alone, that is my way to pay you all what you did for me, saved me from dead, from being alone. You weren’t my piece of heaven, you are an angel sent to me, thank you, for everything.”
When i looked around no one was in there. Just me and his ashes…
Thanks for everything my little boy, as i always say: I am grateful with life, who gave me this little piece of happiness. Goodbye my friend, someday we will read books together again.
