My Substitute Husband

Childhood Memory

sprite

Eric's POV. I still remember that day when I first met her. At that time we all were children. I and Erish were playing in the playground when we hear someone's crying voice. We both stopped for a moment, listening to the sound of crying and then we followed the voice. When we reached the place where the voice was coming from, we noticed that some boys were bullying a little girl. With her appearance, She looked 7 or 8 years old whereas the boys who bullied her looked the same age as us, like 10 to 12 years. "Don't grab my hair! " She yelled loudly to the bunch of boys with all her strength. Her face was red, eyes looking puffy and she angrily glared at them. Looking at her face anyone could see that she was in pain because one of the boys grabbed her hair tightly in his hand. But her eyes were determined to fight back them all alone. "You are just so cute! We just want you to play with us. Let's play together! " After saying that they all laughed. "No!! I don't want to play with you. You all are just bad boys and bullying me. " She says between weeping. "Cute girl, We are not bad boys! Don't make us angry. " This time he pulled her hair hard which made her cry louder. Seeing this Erish went there, to stop them and I just stood there without hesitation. "Hey! Don't bully her. Let her go! She is just a small child " After going there in front of them. He said in a polite tone. It feels like he is requesting them which makes me angrier but I didn't join the conversation. "Who are you to order us? " Seeing him they asked laughing. " I just said, let her go! Why are you bullying her? Don't you feel bad to make her cry? He said in a worried tone. Hearing him they all laughed. One of them who was grabbing the hair of the little girl finally let her hair go but because of force, she fell to the ground and the boy went to the front of him and said in a furious tone

"Hey! It's none of your busine ss. So, just run away from her e, or else we will beat you! " . Erish didn't like to fight, so he tried one more time to convince them but they not only laughed but also p ushed him hard so that he fell back with a thug sound. Seeing this I finally made a move and directly ran towards the bo y who pushed him and punched his face with all my strengths. He fe ll straight to the ground with a loud sound with my sudden punch. Seeing this, all of them were scared. But seeing my face they all b ecome more horrified. Because I and Erish just look identical and t hey thought we were ghosts. So, they all were shivering with fear. " Oh my God! They both look the same! They are ghosts! " one of them said in a trembling voice. Hearing this I just chuckled and sa id in a cold tone " Yes, we are! So, do you want to fight with ghosts " . Hearing me they all screamed loudly with fear and just ran away without looking back or without fighting back. This is not the first time when s omething like this happens. So, we both brothers didn't care about this. After they left. I helped Erish to stand up and we both laughed loudly . Our eyes went to the little girl. Erish moved to help the little girl who was already seated on the ground in a miserable state. Her eyes look moist due to crying and her face looks red just like tomatoes but sh e is really cute even when she is in a bad state but I didn't want to accept this thing. " Are you oka y? " his eyes were worried. " Yes ! " Sh e nodded her little head. " Thank you, big brother! " S he smiled widely at him, showi ng her snow-white small teeth. Seeing her smiling like this my f ace suddenly flushed even when I knew she smiled at Erish, not me. But it also made me somewhat ups et. So, I just went in front of h er and frowned at her arrogantly. " Hey! Little girl! If you don't know how to protect yourself then don't come alone here. You should bring Your mother with you

" I said that in an angry tone. Suddenly scolded by me, her facial expression changed and her smile disappeared. " Why are you shouting at me? They are the ones who bullie d me !! Wu. wu. wu. !!! " she started crying again hearin g my cold tone and shouted at me with her childish voice. " Eric, Don't say this! See ! you make her cry ! " Erish glared at me. I just dumbfou nded myself in this situation. Indeed, I don't like girls. So whenever someone wants to be my friend, I ju st ignore them but never shout or scold them because I feel this is a waste of time. And I don't want to hear their crying voices, it's so irritating. " Hey little girl, I apologize on beh alf of my brother. Please stop cryin g. " He was so gentle with his words. She nodded h er head and smiled again. " Big Brother! Are you t wins? " Her eyes were br ight when she asked him. Erish and I looke d at each other a nd then the girl. " Do you know the mea ning of Twins? " Erish smiled and asked her. " Yes! I saw many movies of twins an d my mom also told me about this! " s he explained herself, glaring at me. " Little girl, you are so smart! Yeah, you are right. We are Twins! " he smiled. " Wow! This is my first time seeing twins! " She became ex cited and clapped her hands. " So, did you c ome here alone? " he asked her. But before she could say anything, I said in the middl e " Don't you see, she is all alone here. She must run away from home. " After saying that, I stared at her. " And you, I'm telling you, just go back to your home and remember never come here alone " my voice was cold
