After visiting friends, Aadi and her cousins walk through a mango grove on their way home. She is a little spooked by the shadows, and one of the boys starts teasing her about the ghosts of the mango grove. Putting on a brave face, Aadi tries to bluff her way through Arun’s litany of spirits. Eventually, the older cousins intervene. But then they see the shadow behind the well! What could it be? A ghost? Or something else??
Before the night is over, Aadi shows her mettle, and Arun is gracious in acknowledging defeat.
Read and Enjoy!
