My brother started talking late during his childhood, but when he did, he would utter anything on his tongue. And he would say it so confidently that his small friend use to believe it easily.

When I was a child, me and my mom, we used to go for post-prandial walk after our dinner. We never talked much during walk so one of the things I always enjoyed was to play with one of the street dogs. I always liked the cold breeze touching my shoulders. In that dark environment, every time a vehicle passed by, plastic things like carry bags, broken plastic things, those used to shine light.
