I couldn’t sleep whole night. Mouse, yeah right, a rat didn’t lemme sleep. I have no idea from where it appeared in my home or rather my room. That 7 inches short-nasty-brown-stinky-DEVIL-like-creature crawled through every single corner of my room so fearlessly like the room belonged to it! I never ever in my life, thought that I could have a fight with a tiny-stinky RAT and mind you, DON’T under estimate that stinky little mouse, it gave me the tough-est fight ever!
It was 12:30 in the night when I realized that Mum is really shouting hard to get me off with my work. I was working late on a project last night. I shut down the PC, turned off the lights and fell on the bed to have sweet dreams.
Am I dreaming?! I murmured rubbing my eyes trying to look ahead in the faint light of my mobile phone. All my cardboard sheets of projects which I placed safely over the Almira had fallen on the floor. How? I turned on the lights. I found nobody except me n my shadow in the room. Then, how did they fell off? Maybe I wouldn’t have placed them correctly. I’ve always been careless you see. Okay, I placed them again correctly n went to sleep.
I jumped out of my bed, a bit afraid, holding my quill tightly! I turned on the lights. Oh no!! my music keyboard!! I could see foot prints of a creature which I expected to be lizard until I saw a looooong tail of something swinging right-left-left-right under my bookshelf. I focused light under the shelf. Its such a big mouse! It was about 7″ long excluding the 9″ tail, looked nasty, stinky, hairy, all brown n black with two tiny sparkling button-like eyes! I screamed n it squeaked high. I dunno whether I was fearing it or it found me a monster but it was terrifying, believe me! “What a mouse could do to me? Ah nothing. It will just move around for an hour or so and then find a way out.” I giggled n said to myself, removing everything that my new guest can harm and went to sleep(The THIRD time). Ah, I love my bed.
I was dreaming of my old white fur hat. It was so soft n smooth except the upper part, its was a bit coarse. I felt like I was wearing it again n feeling it with my hands as I used to do in my childhood but why is it sticky? I wondered. God save me!!! The sticky mouse was over the window pane just above my head!! I screamed, jumped, ran and so did the DEVIL. It ran and climbed to the Almira through the LAN wire, and peeped with a winning smile. Yuck Yuck Yuck!! I touched it with my hands. I washed my hands with soap three times. Oh I won’t leave you, you tiny stinky thingy! I searched out the old rattrap..set the trap just below the Almira, putting down the LAN wire, then Turned off the lights n tried to sleep once again(the 4th time).
It jumped from the 6 feet Almira taking the support of old cracked mirror which was placed aside of Almira, do ya believe?!? I was not sleeping this time. It crossed the rattrap without fail, looked up to me and went back swinging it’s tail high as if it had won a battle. And I felt like killing that thing. Every time I turn off the lights, it comes down scratching n squeaking. So, it wont come down if I put the lights on. Bingo! Heck, my mind worked like Tom cat. So, I left the lights on, removed the mirror and lied on my bed facing the Almira, giving a don’t-mess-with-me kinda look. How will you manage now Mr. Smartypants!!!
The mouse peeped from above, looked at me and went back the 17th time. I was almost successful beating my sleep to capture that crawly devilish creature. The 18th time, it came to the front most edge like it would jump. I was heck happy.. it moved its face up like he was smelling the air above his head and then looked at me, <I was feeling like I have crossed English channel. It would try to jump but there’s no mirror, so it would fall n get into the trap!! yes !!!>, and then, went back! It was almost like it said okay miss, I have pissed ya off whole night, had my food and I’m going to sleep now, Thanks for the good time. It was 4:30 and my eyes were paining. I was feeling pissed off, frustrated, sleepless, mindless and defeated by a tiny-frowny-browny-stinky-nasty mouse.
I HATE RATS!!!!!
