This is in response to the Weekly Discover Challenges opening line
A person was having a dog. The dog could understand and speak human language. But, the main duty of the dog was to protect the house.
Dog: Good morning Master
Master: Very good morning
Dog: Master, That … that …that ….
Master: Oh, Mr. Dog, come on, and say whatever you want to say without fear.
Dog: Master, you are giving me very less food in the dinner. That is not sufficient for me.
Master: That is to help you, otherwise you will sleep and you will not be able to protect the house, which is your main duty.
Dog: That is fine Master, but you are not giving me weekly off also. I have to work all the seven days. I never got salary rise. Kindly increase my salary (first rise) at least 20%, by giving me 20% more food in the dinner.
Master: Well, you have worked for long time with me and doing hard work also. So I will do something for you. Every Tuesday night I am not sleeping because, I have to write an article on the topic Weekly Discover Challenges. So Every Tuesday evening, you can have as much food as you want and then you can sleep full night.
Dog: Thank you, Thank you very much Master
The dog had enough food then slept happily. There was a thief, who was watching this house for long time. Today he saw that, dog is sleeping. He came to the house to steal something. As Master was not sleeping and the light was on inside the house, he could not enter the house. But outside, the only thing he saw was the small size house made for the dog. So Thief took away the dog’s house.
Morning, the dog saw his house missing. The dog rushed to the master to inform this. Master told the dog not to worry, as he will arrange a new house. The dog was very happy and thanked the master.
2nd Tuesday night
Thief came again and this time took away the new house also happily. Morning, when dog saw that, new house is also missing; he rushed to the master to inform this. The dog was very much worried now.
Master: Do not worry, I will buy another house for you, but I do not want this to happen again. As, I am not sleeping Tuesday night, Next Tuesday I will sit outside in the fresh air ( It was summer time) and write my story. You can sleep inside the house. The dog was very happy.
(Dear Readers, Nobody know the future, so Master and dog also were not aware about the next third Tuesday night. But I am the writer and Not only I know the future of characters of my story, but I can change the future also. I know that trouble is not over for them So, )
3rd Tuesday night
The thief came again. He saw master sitting outside, but it was dark inside the house. So, he entered the house from the back door and took away some gold ornaments. Now all were happy. The Master is writing story outside the house happily. The Dog is sleeping happily. Thief also is happy because of gold. But no happiness will last forever.
Morning Master and dog both were worried. They did not know, what to do
(Dear Readers, I want to continue my story and have decided to help them. I am telling this because I will play some role in this story )
Master and Dog, both of them saw a dream. They came to know that Mr. G K Agrawal ( myself the writer ) can help them. They also got opportunity to meet me in the dream. So they came to me.
Dog and Master: Good morning Sir,
MY self: Good morning, you are not looking happy,
Dog: Sir, kindly help us. You know our problem very well.
Myself: Well, You want to be happy always. This is not allowed by the nature. Anyway, do you have any suggestion, I could help you.
Dog: Sir, If Police arrest the thief then ..
Myself: Ok, agreed
Both of them thanked me and went back happily. (This meeting with me took place in their dream)
Next day (Friday), the thief was arrested by the Police. The dog was happy. But the master was not happy, so he called the dog.
Master: See Mr. Dog, I brought you to protect my house. I have to spend money also. But now the thief is arrested so I do not need you service. You are suspended with the benefit of one month notice.
The dog collapsed and started praying
Dog: Master, kindly do not do that, otherwise I will be homeless and without food. I will not take Tuesday off. You can reduce my salary further by reducing the food quantity in the dinner.
Afterword both of them lived happily as per earlier arrangements.
