The ball hit the vase. It fell and shattered into pieces.

Sapna entered the room and shouted, "How many times have I told you not to play inside. Who will pay for it now?"

Rahul replied, "Mom, it's not my fault. Hari hit the ball hard," shifting the blame on their maid's son.

Hari's eyes welled with tears. Sapna screamed at the maid, "Don't ever bring your son here, again."

That night, Hari kept crying with guilt.

Sapna was happy because a diamond ring, thought to be lost, was found inside the broken vase. The vase didn't matter anymore.
