But, these incidences do not go unnoticed and the next day the neighbors may seek to know if everything was fine.
Many people may see this as prying into other people’s business, but to us it’s a gesture of concern. The evenings are well lit with street lights and security lights from houses. Cars are usually parked in the driveways, without any worries.
The days were peaceful, the surrounding was serene and the people were friendly.
When we moved in, they all came to welcome us as a gesture of goodwill.
The trees around our homesteads were beautiful and the birds inhabiting them entertained us with their incessant singing every morning.
As I grew older, I realized that my suburban home was like heaven on earth.
However, I did not share the same enthusiasm when I went to their apartments in the city.
Life was not as fancy as it used to when we first lived in the city.
So, my sisters and I maintained the same school and since father and mother both worked in the city, each day they would drop us to school before they went to their respective jobs.
As time went by, I got used to the idea of living in our new home.
