“Where do you live?” A voice came from behind as I rang the bell of my house after returning from work.
I turned. I little girl was peeping from the next door. I pointed towards my house and replied “I live in this house.”
“I live in this house with my grandmother.”
“And where is your mother?”
“She went to hospital.”
“What happened to her?” I worriedly asked.
“Nothing.” She said and gestured her hand carelessly.
“Wow!” I uttered utmost cheerfully. My happiness bewildered her.

Do you think should I tell her that her mother will bring a sibling for her from hospital or should I kept quiet and let the child be surprised when her mother returned from hospital?
