The tale of Happy Feet
Welcome to the world of Aldo, a house rightly referred to as a brand that designs jewellery for your Legs!!! I am Pixy Aldo, the Dainty Pink and this is my bestie Black Beauty-Nancy Aldo.
We are born in a very sophisticated high tech facility.Being a part of the famous Aldo, our creator took a great care to intricately design us . He ensured that the shape , size and the unique colour were thoroughly maintained as per the global Aldo standards.
I resembled like my siblings, pretty and trendy as always, that’s what Aldo family is all about you see!!! Our friends looked different yet as beautiful as myself and Nancy. Everyone genrally had an unique family trait of design ,size but eventually are all one- An Aldoite.
Now to talk about us… well I was packed with great care and love and so do was Nancy. We smiled at each other with much excitement of going to new places and meeting new people. With happy thought, we slipped into our respective beauty boxes and we’re ready to be transported to a new city.Nancy was worried as she didnot want to part ways and sent to a different venue. But nothing was in your hands so, with anxiety in our mind we started off our journey of the unknown."Everything will be okie” is what I muttered and eventually dosed off..I am sure Nancy could also feel the jerks, bumps all through the travel and heard the faint noises of vehicles and talks of staff outside while we were caged inside the dark boxes.
Ah!!! Arrived finally after a couple of days travel. “But where am I and what about Nancy…..”these were the constant thoughts flocking my head. Suddenly I felt that I was being lifted carried ahead and placed somewhere. After a pasage of time, I was being opened, so with lot of anticipation, I managed to peep out of my box to the pompous lights and decor of the place. Hey, I have reached, The City of Joy- Kolkata. As I was looking around I herad a faint voice from a distance calling out by my name, “Pixy, Pixy!!!”.To my utter surprise, it was Nancy popping out her Pointed nose and jumping with joy to see me. She said, “Pixy we are together in Kolkata and it’s awesome to be re-united”. I waved her with a gleeful smile and nodded.
A giant shopping mall,in an exclusive Aldo Store, I was being showcased on a rack . Was a little scared to be in this new place though.Nancy was also little uncomfortable initially to the new environment but we decided to quickly adapt to feel the sense of belongingness. Met our family and friends and socialised as well with beauties who were already dawning the store.I was very excited to take a tour of the mall with my new inmates, peeping into other stores at times while Nancy preferred remaining inside in her own place observing the Happy feet walking in and out of the store.. She was more keen to look at people and understand their tastes..I was excited to meet few who looked similar to me with low price tag, probably designed by other creator. They belonged to other brand stores.
I went back and shared my experience to Nancy to which she wisely said” The world looks at the outer beauty first these days, rather than the true inner qualities, but Pixy, an Aldo is always an Aldo- Old and wise”.It is true there are people who recognise importance of quality product and brand .
I started singing and few of my mates along with Nancy joined me . The whole store and especially my rack glowed with our squibbles, chatters and our smiles. Well it’s been a while now since we landed here. every morning when the shutter of the store used to be opened, I used to start the day in anticipation to be selected by someone.. This very feel make us feel happy and cautious too as well. Pixy &Nancy Duo were the heartthrobs of the store al due to our gleeful ,friendly and happy nature.
One afternoon,I saw this well built guy enter the store approaching towards us with an extraordinary trendy red Helmet and his office bag at his back; probably straight from office I thought and parallely winked at Nancy with a naughty smile. hHe seemed to be a sure shot buyer who knew what he was looking for. Guess what, he came straight and picked up my bestie- the black beauty and gave a close look at her .. Nancy was finding it strange as to how come she…Then he picked me as well and turned me to ascertain my size. He was looking for Euro 39 is what I understood.. Guess we both were 39s. He without much time narrowed down and me and Navy too , what luck ??? I was very happy that we were the ultimate chosen ones.
Nancy gave a broad smile showing her teeth when Mr Handsome clicked us with his mobile phone and sent the images to his Lady- afterall her decision and choice is what matters to him!!!! We could hear her voice from other side of the phone which was full of exuberance and excitement to have found her 2 favourite colours.. Done!!!! They both chose us and soon Nancy and myself were in his shopping cart ready to be pilled… yeaaaahhh , he was a happy man too I thought..
I bid adieu to all my fellow family members friends and our managers and hoped for a great journey ahead with Nancy by my side.” This is the true bond of friendship.. we were still together.. this is sheer luck” quirked Nancy with a grin. The unchartered territory and the unknown future of us worried me a bit but with her along optimism took all over me. We trusted ourselves and offcourse our new owner too.
Pixy and Nancy Aldo started jumping and dancing in joy to experience a fantastic and thrilling bike ride enroute the new home and to see the new world…It was one of a kind experience friends!
But the excitement was short spanned, when we came to know that our new owner madam is yet to reach kolkata and until then Mr Handsome will keep us safe and sound inside the box and wait for her arrival.. Though it made us sad that there was still time for the DUO becoming her priced possession- jewellery to her legs.. But nevertheless we decided that we will wait happily for her Happy feet. Until then goodnight!!!
To be continued…….
Pixy and Nancy.
