Sheela and Mala were two sweet little girls of a parents who lived in a beautiful little village. Now as the exams were over both the girls were very happy. But her parents had strictly told them not to come out of the house to play as they both go out to work in the day time.

One day, Sheela and Mala felt very bored, they tried playing all the indoor games but still the hours hardly moved. Sheela started getting restless being locked up in the house always. She told her little sister Mala, “Mala, shall we go and play in the garden, aren’t you getting bored inside the house?’.
Mala refused “No Sheela, mom has told us not to go out and play.” ‘Mala, we are not going out of our compound, we’ll just play in the garden’ saying so, Sheela somehow convinced Mala to the garden. They had a lovely time building castles in the sand and chasing butterflies. Soon they became tired and sat on the grass for rest.

Suddenly the sparkle in the river that ran near their house, caught Sheela's eyes. She became excited. ‘Mala’ she exclaimed ‘come, lets go wash our hands and legs in the cool water’. ‘No’ said Mala, ‘I am not coming with you. Dad will get really angry if he comes to know that we went there’ ‘O come on Mala, they will never come to know. We will be back in 1/2 an hour, before our parents come home’

Again Sheela convinced Mala and went to the huge river. ‘Wow, look what you were about to miss’ said Sheela as she put her tiny feet into the cool water. ‘Yes, this is so refreshing isn't it?’ answered Mala.

Soon she noticed a big yellow flower floating on the water. ‘Sheela, can you hold my hands, so that I can take that beautiful flower’ she asked Sheela, ‘yes, but hold it tight’ said her sister. As Mala stretched out reaching for the flower, Sheela’s hand slipped and she let her little sister go. Mala screamed ‘Sheela help me, I’m drowning!’.

Sheela did not know what to do. She soon lost sight of her sister. She yelled and cried, but no one came to rescue. She ran along the banks of the river and found few men washing their nets. She told them the story. They immediately jumped into the river in search of the little girl. ‘What have I done to Mala’ cried Sheela. Soon she heard her mother and father running towards her. Where is Mala, what happened’ they had heard what had happened and had rushed to the place. Sheela said the whole story and asked for forgiveness.

As she confessed, the men came out of the river carrying the little girl. they put her down and pumped the water out. Sheela cried, ‘Lord please give my sister back to me. I will never do this mistake again’. Mala coughed and regained consciousness. Sheela had learned a very big lesson, paying a very big price!

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

OOOHH, for a minute, I thought Sheela was gone! Break the paragraphs with an extra space to help the reader. Also the beginning and ending paragraphs aren't really necessary for a written story. (It's really the words a parent might say when he/she reads the story to a child.) Well written. Keep it up.
