She'd had a 'morning dream', in which she had visualized herself, playing with a kitten, in the mansion's garden area.
And, as Mom had told her, 'morning dreams' had a greater chance to come true.
So, Navya was riding high on her hopes. :)
In fact, this dream was the first thing she told her Mom about, after waking up on her tenth birthday.
And when she'd asked her mother if it would indeed, come true, Mom had diverted her attention to the preparations for the day.
That had made Navya's belief stronger.
Kitten coming home, she felt. :)
Long talk cut short - it was time for Navya's present, in the evening, after the cake cutting.
A child's intuition can never go wrong.
That was what happened.
But, how it happened forms for an interesting part.
This time, Magic was the theme, for Navya's birthday party.
The magician's tricks were to happen right after Navya received her gift from her mother.
This time, her mother was there.
Her gift was not.
Mom had told her that Mr. Magician would bring her the gift.
Magical Kitten, with some special abilities?
You never know...
Navya patiently waited for the Magician to arrive.
But, she was as excited as ever.
She didn't have to wait for long.
The magician was there, in no time.
Among the routine magic tricks, that he performed to engage Navya and her friends, there was a surprise for Navya too.
She believes Jeans is a feline angel.
From now on, each New Year's Day would be the day for two birthdays.
Navya's and Jeans'! :D
Two birthdays, because Navya wanted it to be.
She now takes pride in the fact that she would share her birthday, with a special friend.
All of it, because...
It was January 1, when Jeans came into her life, and together, they've embarked on a Journey, towards a life-long friendship! :D
