As the school tournament comes to a close, a sense of joy washes over the 12-year-old boy who has emerged victorious in the badminton match. With a proud smile on his face, he carries his racket and trophy as he arrives home, eager to share the news with his family.

Walking through the front door, he is greeted by the familiar warmth of his home. The kitchen smells of his favorite snacks, and he can hear the sound of his parents chatting in the living room. Excitement bubbles inside him, and he can’t wait to tell them about his triumph on the badminton court.

His younger sister runs up to him, eyes wide with curiosity. “Did you win? Did you win?” she asks, bouncing on her toes. Laughing, he ruffles her hair and nods, his chest swelling with pride. “Yes, I won! It was a tough match, but I never gave up.”

His parents look up from their conversation, their faces lighting up with pride as he recounts the match point by point. They listen attentively, offering words of encouragement and praise. The boy’s heart is full, knowing that his hard work and dedication have paid off.

As the evening wears on, the family celebrates his victory with a special dinner and dessert. The boy’s trophy sits proudly on the shelf, a reminder of the day he proved his skill and sportsmanship on the badminton court.

2. Mother’s Reaction

Upon seeing her son’s sweat-soaked sleeveless t-shirt, his mother immediate reaction was to tell him to change before hugging her. She eyed him up and down with a mixture of concern and disapproval, noticing the perspiration clinging to his clothes. With a frown creasing her forehead, she gently scolded him, “You’re all sweaty, go change your shirt before you come near me.”

Her maternal instincts kicked in as she worried about his health and hygiene. She knew how important it was to keep cool and dry, especially during the hot summer days. Despite her firm tone, there was a hint of love and care underlying her words.

As he hurried to change into a fresh t-shirt, he couldn’t help but smile at his mother’s fussing. It was in moments like these that he realized how lucky he was to have someone looking out for him. The brief exchange highlighted their close bond and his mother’s unwavering dedication to his well-being.

After changing into a clean shirt, he returned to his mother’s side and embraced her warmly. Her initial concern melted away as she hugged him back, the familiar scent of her perfume enveloping him. In that simple gesture, he knew that no matter what, his mother would always be there to take care of him.
