Tarun was having a bath.
Everyone at home knows when he is in the shower.
That’s because of he sings.
Shower time is the only time he sings.
Tarun sings funny songs loudly every time he has a bath.
Tara was reading a story book.
Tarun’s singing occasionally broke her concentration.
After some time the singing stopped.
Tara heard the phone ringing.
It continued to ring as no one picked it up.
Tara dashed out of her room.
She ran towards the pantry where the phone was placed.
In the hurry she didn’t see the water on the floor.
However she managed to hold the table before she fell.
At that moment mother entered the house from the garden.
She too came to answer the phone.
She saw Tara sliding over the wet floor.
Mother ran towards Tara.
“You aren’t hurt” she said.
A frightened Tara shook her head.
Mother hugged and consoled her.
The next moment she called Tarun loudly.
“Tarun…… Tarun” she called.
Tarun put his head out through the doorway.
“See what you have done,” mother told Tarun.
Then she explained what had happened.
“I have told you not to come out of shower till you wipe yourself dry,” she said crossly.
“What would have happened if Tara fell on the ground?” she asked.
“Go and bring the mop and dry up the floor,” she ordered.
Tarun meekly went to the tool room and brought the mop.
He was glad that Tara hadn’t received any injuries.
How does everyone at home get to know when Tarun is having a shower?
What did Tara fail to see in her hurry to answer phone?
Why was Tarun glad?
