Lakshmi woke up with a start. She had a bad dream about her mother.
There were voices coming from downstairs. Had something bad happened to her?
She ran down and nearly tripped and fell. Her grandfather quickly grabbed her.
“Grandpa, where is Amma?”
“You have a younger brother now. Amma had kissed you before leaving for the hospital. She and baby are well, dear!”
A younger brother. Lakshmi’s worries rapidly evaporated. She had a broad grin now.
