“Where are you going?” Tina asked.
“Celebrate New Year’s day!” Mona smiled mysteriously. She held her hand and started walking towards the nearby cluster of woods.
It was quite a surprise to see a small cluster of trees in the middle of the cluttered town, where if a daring person tried may jump from roof to roof for a mile or more.
Her jaw dropped when she realized Mona was not joking, a group of teenagers were gathered outside the woods, with some saplings in their hands.
“It is our new year resolution!” Mona smiled, “To be a part of our gang you too will have to take the oath.”
“This area was the property of a rich landlord, when he started to sell his plot a group of kids convinced him to gift it to a local club, the club took an oath that they will nurture and protect these woods, and hand them over to their kids.”
“Those kids were our grandparents.”
