Racing through heavy rain, Clive is one of the boy that think only to win... but again, which child whose doesn't like to win?
Time of school finally end for today, when Clive rushed back to his home for a short nap. The only reason he took the nap was to win over his mother heart for playing time with his friends. After a while (my wild guest is about 10 - 15 minutes) of napping, Clive quickly grab his bag, and run downstairs passing her mom and say, "I go with Matt!"
Her mother could only smile to see his young little boy run with joy.
Meeting with Matt in the corner of the street, Clive share a little bit of his day in school that morning. He told how he was boring to study math and history.
Matt, a little bit older that Clive, understood and share the same story.
So, to cheer up their heart, they started to run... At first, they just joking each other and walk in fast pace. As the fun begin to fill their heart, they can no longer hold it up and start running. The sky seems to understand what this children of man doing and trying to share the same joy and happiness by pouring down drops of water.
Clive and Matt finally run as fast as they could under heavy rain. They just throw away their bags and their cloths. For grown up like us, it certainly sure these two kids will be punished by their parents. But for the child, all they have right now is just joy, joy, and joy!
After turning in several corner, Matt finally given up his breath and let Clive took the win for the race. Filled up with so much joy, Clive raise both of his hands up and shout out loud like a real Olympic runner have his first gold medal.
"I Win! I Win! I Win!"
Have you ever feel this moment that Clive had?
It's amazing how pure the heart and mind of the child. Should we lose them when we're grown up?
