Having a ponytail jumping like a squirrel's tail, she ran into her room and shut herself up. Neither did she eat nor talk the entire day. Her mom looking at this behaviour told her dad in the evening. He approached her carefully and asked the matter. "I have no friends", told she. "But why would you say that?" asked her dad shocked. "I don't know. May be because I am weird", she said.
"And now why would you say that?", he asked.
"Because I am dad. I don't talk about guys or fashion or getting married and other such stuff so all the girls say I am weird", she said sobbing.
Thinking for a while her dad told her to not worry because the next day she was to go with him and he will introduce her to some of her best friends who won't call her weird. She agreed happily and slept.
The next day a curious eyed little girl was standing in a library wirh her dad. "But dad, you said I will meet some friends and there are only books here and people reading books", she inquired.
"Who said only people can be friends", said her dad. "You know books can be your best friends too. Actually they are much better at that than people. They never abandon you. Make you happy when you're down. You can go to them any time you want to and they will welcome you like you were friends since you were born. They don't demand anything. All they do is please you."
"Are you sure dad?", she asked somewhat confused.
"Of course, I am honey", replied he. "Well actually there's a bonus to all this too."
"And that being?" she asked.
Giving her a big smile he said, "They take you places!"
She smiled back with big eyes thinking, "Thank God, I don't have to be with all those girls who call me weird!"~Ana
