This iReport is part of an assignment:
Your favorite Eid traditions
The Fireworks Turned Bloodworks At Eid
"it must be your brother Talha",- my mother frowned-"tell him he'll get hurt"
"He'll be fine MaMa!" I shouted under the voice of TV.
"Eid Mubarak Talha Bhai(used for respect in Urdu)" My sister hugged me from the back.
The light went out so i went outside. moving to the Veranda i saw drops of blood and beside the car was a match box covered with blood and a tiny piece of flesh. I was thunderstruck, A dawning realization came up driving me hysterical.
"Huzaifa!!!" I ran to the back yard, following the blood drops that ended up to the water tap.
There was my little 10 years old, covered in grime of blood.
"Don't tell Mom. She would be angry" he was gasping, hiding his hand from me.
"Now give me a look of it there"
"Gosh It hurts"
His thumb and fore-finger were badly ripped apart. I could see the Flesh inside. It was horrible and obviously Nauseating.
"What the...Come on u. We're going to the Hospital."
I lifted him up in my arms. Cradling him to the car, placing him on the bumper I rushed to call my Dad.
Thank God his fingers got stitched followed by his agonizing screams. But for sure till now he just stays away from the Fireworks!!!
