Lucy’s parents(Luther n Cynthea) had a lil farm land, away from the town. They built a house in the farm. Luçy was their only child. They pampered her a lot. Their farm had a small pond at the center. Luçy used to play with the ducks in the pond. The ducks were her friends.
Their lush green farm attracted all the passers-by. They would drop in there for a while and enjoy in the nature’s lap. This lil farm became favourite destination for most travellers. They would come their with their families and stay for the weekend.
Luther n Cynthea were generous. They welcomed the guests with great respect and made all the arrangements for their stay to be comfortable. Lil Luçy enjoyed the company of the people and she was the charm of the farm house.
The farm had a woodden gate. The wooden gate painted in gold added to the beauty of the farm, it guarded. Luçy loved painting it in gold. Cynthea told her that it was the gate to happiness. And Luçy believed her. It indeed was a gate to happiness, not just for them, but, to all those, who dropped in.
