MEMORIES OF GERMANY – The race against a cow
Short Story written by: Dora Singh
When I was little I lived in the countryside with my brothers and sisters. We had many animals; dogs, horses, hens and cows.
Before nightfall, I used to pick the cows up from their grazing and bring them back to the corral. One of the dogs was always helping me.
One day, as always, I went to look for our cows. One of them was beside her calf and thought that I was going to take him from her. So she tried to defend her calf. Even if I was not going to do anything, the cow started to chase me and I ran to our neighbours field.
I ran very fast, and the cow ran after me. There was a deep ditch but I jumped over it and my sister started to shout, “Run Dorita, run, she is going to catch you!”.
My thin legs jumped the stone wall and I crossed the wire fence. My dress got hooked up on the fence but I continued to run.
Finally, the cow stopped when she arrived at the wire fence, but I can still remember how scared I was.
When I was able to talk again I said to my sister – “I beat her!”
I was scared at the beginning, but in the end I was having fun. Anyway, I will continue to take care of our cows because I love animals.
The moral of the story: See the positive side of each experience.
