Ella hardly saved her life, but now she was lost, standing in the middle of a jungle!
Ella was a 6 years old, jolly and lovely girl. She was the only daughter of her parents.
Her father, Kalmin was a lawyer. He was handling the case of a poor vendor who was killed in a car accident by a bureaucrat. The fault was entirely of the latter, but his connections and money were proving a hurdle for the vendor’s family who were fighting for justice.
On Thursday morning, Ella requested her dad to take her out at night to buy her favourite chocolate chip ice-cream. Kalmin loved his daughter very much and never refused her demands. So, he told Ella to be ready when he returns from the court.
Ella was very excited. She asked her mom to take out her favourite baby pink frock from the closet. She paired it with matching stockings and got ready before her father arrived.
Kalmin was happy to see her ready. He advised his wife not to open the door until he called and left with Ella.
Just as they were returning from the ice-cream shop, there was a sound of firing. Suddenly, a bullet hit Kalmin and he fell on the ground. The sound of firing stopped.
Ella screamed with grief and fear. She kneeled down to hold her father and started crying.
Her father insisted her to run away as she could be the next target. Ella didn’t want to leave her father alone, but Kalmin pleaded. Right, at that moment, Ella saw two men wearing masks running towards her. She had no choice but to run away.
Ella kept on running until the sound of footsteps behind her could no more be heard. She was successful in dodging the men.
Ella was exhausted running continuously. She stopped and
looked around. It was quite dark and the trees were looking terrifying, spreading it’s branches.
She just realized, that she lost her way and she was in a jungle. She had no idea of the way back. Also, she could not take a risk. So, she decided to keep moving forward.
Suddenly, she stopped. A strange creature had appeared from behind the bushes and it was extending it’s hand towards her. She was terrified at first, but then she saw a friendly look on the creature’s face.She extended her hand for a handshake and asked: “Who are you?”
“A Jinn.” He replied.
Ella pulled her hand back in fear.
“Don’t worry. I am your friend.” The Jinn replied with a soft tone and Ella felt much better.
“I know. Your father has been shot by the killers hired by a bureaucrat. But don’t worry, he is safe and taken to hospital in an ambulance. Come with me, I’ll take you out of the jungle safely.”
Ella’s tears started to flow in gratitude. She was thankful to the Jinn and especially to God, for helping her in a miraculous way.
