Indeed it was a new environment to me. I knew no one and above all, I couldn’t even say a word because I wasn’t understanding any language. I felt so lonely such that tears of sorrow never stopped cascading down my baggy chicks. Just a single minute to me was like an entire month. There I was, in the field for work. I kept asking myself, why me? aren’t there anyone else for this? Is it a must for me to do this? Those were some of questions that kept on troubling me. Considering that our family was big enough to provide someone else.
That day it was sunny as well as experiencing light rainfall. To me that was indeed a bright day. Not only enjoying how beautifully the sky was decorated by a huge rainbow, I was as well enjoying seeing butterflies that were all over the place especially under the shade where I was. I could allow them land on my body. The day surely made me forget all the sorrows I had before. It made me gain confidence and wake up for the purpose of my presence. By that time I was able to communicate with others effectively. I came to realize that I wasn’t alone who was enjoying such environment. As it is said, birds of same feathers flocks together. It was indeed a climate, therefore we had to urge others just to try accepting the fact that no one can undo it.
Of course not everyone loved it, some decided just to be friendly while some decided to be a threat. There was a group of individuals who promised to destroy our shade and kill all butterflies that were making that environment so delighting to us. I was extremely worried and again I began thinking about going home.
Thinking about going back home wasn’t a good idea either because it meant that, I was going to leave my lovely colleagues in trouble. Plenty of attempts were made to stop haters but nothing seem to work on our favour.
Finally I decided to go back home. Tearfully I prepared myself ready to leave but again I couldn’t afford making even a single step. “Am I going to be accepted back?” “What reason will I give for going back without completing my work?” “What if I’m sent back, shall it not be wastage of time?” With these unanswerable questions, I just unpacked my belongings and lay down on bed for physical rest. I couldn’t catch a sleep due to over thinking.
