It has been two days since Ruby has taken out one of his milk teeth . This time he wants a 5 Rs coin for his teeth and wonders if he will get even a 50ps for such a small teeth. It was one of his canines .
hmm… The tooth fairy will have to keep that in mind !
But he didn’t keep it under his pillow. I thought he threw it away and has grown out of fairy tales.
Then, yesterday I heard him whispering to Pearl that he is going to keep the tooth tonight for the coin followed by a ‘ don’t tell anybody ‘.
I concentrated hard on my stitching work and made mental notes.
As soon as Ruby went out of the room , Pearl came to me and shared the top secret followed by the ‘ don’t tell anybody. ‘
After that without even a moments break , I heard her giggling and running to her father . Of course, top secret !! ( 😯 I am not going to include her in the secret arrangements for Ruby’s b’day next month ! )
Now the Fairy is the only person who doesn’t know about it .
In between , the whole thing slipped out of my mind . By midnight we had a power failure. Ruby got up and checked for his tooth but couldn’t find it !!
ohoh!! The tooth fairy had other important things in her mind !
I asked him to go to sleep and not to check for the tooth in between . No foul plays ! 😮
In the morning luckily tooth fairy remembered about the sweet tooth waiting under the pillow . But couldn’t find any 5 re coin and settled for a 1re coin.
Ruby got up , found the coin and came to the kitchen .
” What do you have there ? Did you get the 5 re. ” I asked him
” No, It is a 1 re coin . Mother, 🙄 You get only 1 re coins. That is the rule , you know ? Isn’t it a wonder that it was not there when I checked in between ? The fairy needs the exact time to change the tooth into coin . After all she has to take the tooth to some place and make a coin out of it . May be she has a factory for this ”
‘ hmm.. the fairy will give gifts only to kids who gets enough sleep . 8 hrs !! No more no less ! ‘ ( After all the 1 re coin was not wasted !)
