Life As A Cloth Pegs




I am a cloth pegs, live in a simple hanger. I came from a big factory. After design and coloring, they send us to all over the country. Thank God, I passed the quality control. I am not sure what happen for those who cannot make it but I heard their life end at the garbage bin. So shame…


After the long journey, finally I reached this small and peaceful home. I and the others have a comfortable life here and our job was also easy, just helping the owner pin up their clothes whenever they want it. if we don’t have anything to do, we will chat and joking as long as we want.

One day, while hanging on the hanger the owner came and put lots of new cloth pegs. At first, I didn’t take it seriously because for me it’s a normal thing to do. Furthermore, some of the wooden cloth pegs already worn out. Suddenly, something caught my attention. I was like OMG, the new pink cloth pegs was drop dead beautiful. And without a warning, I am falling in love at the first sight. Seriously!



My heart was beating very fast and I thought I heard my own heartbeat pounding crazily. Who was that?? The owner put her at the next hanger. Okay, that makes me disappointed but I will not give up. I can see her trying to adjust herself at the new environment. Let her, tomorrow I will make my move. Hehehe…

The next morning, she wakes up early. I must confess I didn’t sleep very well because I cannot stop thinking about her.  All the others were still in a deep sleep, so I take the opportunity…


Me : Hello there…

Pink : Oh, hello…(she was a little bit startled)

Me : You are new here. What’s your name?

Pink : My name is Pink and you are…

Me : Just call me B

Pink : Hello B, nice to meet you. I saw you yesterday but I am afraid to speak to you…

Me : Really?? (I am not blushing okay). Nice to meet you too, why are you afraid??

Pink : You look so serious

Me : I am sorry, that is only my appearance and there is nothing to be afraid…


So the conversation goes on and on. We chat whenever we can. Things get better each and everyday but one thing never change. She still lives at the next hanger. I prayed very hard that someday we will hang next to each other.

One night, the owner brings a lot of cloths to pin up. She was very busy doing her chores and the next thing I know Pink was being transfer next to me. I was so shocked! Seriously??!!



Pink was also shocked and the next 5 minutes we only stare at each other. This is dreams came true, my pray was answered. Without thinking I tell Pink that I love her and falling in love at the first time saw her. Pink said that she love me too. I feel like I just won a lottery, two good news happen at the same time. I am not sure how to handle it but of course we will live happily ever after…
