“Get that ugly lizard out of my sight” shrieked the old woman.
I am a beautiful lizard!
Don’t laugh. I am serious. I have smooth even toned golden brown skin unlike my spotted darker cousins. I can’t understand why the humans in this house can’t see that? They try to chase me away from the house like I am a sore sight.
The old woman screams every time she sees me, giving my little heart a terrible scare. The little boy in the house throws whatever he can find at me to make the shrieking lady happy. The little tyrant! Six months back when I wasn’t cautious he threw a ball at me and severed my tail. I spent those three months till my tail grew back, shamefully hiding from my ugly cousins for the fear of being laughed at.
I have been plotting revenge on the boy from past few days. Once I noticed when I had lost my balance and fell on the old woman and she had washed herself with water. The little boy always cried when he was washed with water. I would fall on him and make him cry for severing my tail.I found the right opportunity now. As soon as the old woman screamed the little boy came running with a ball in his hand. He aimed and threw the ball at me. I was ready now and I flung myself at him.
I landed on his face.
The old woman shrieked even louder and dragged him to the bathroom and washed him with water. He kept crying and I watched happily from the wall with smug satisfaction.
Wham! He managed to throw something at me as I was lost in happiness, severing my tail again.
Damn you human! I will get back at you. This isn’t over yet. I muttered and quietly retreated.
