He reached the airport with an hour to spare. Myrah had chosen to stay back and they had argued about it again last night. He couldn’t believe she hadn’t called him to say goodbye. The final boarding call was announced and a wave of nostalgia hit him. He reached into his pocket for the phone and blinked the tears away as he found it empty.

The phone on the coffee table back home rang for the 22nd time.

Shruti Verma just cannot sit still. She designs some fun stuff, makes up stories to entertain her friends and loves a good game of scrabble. Don’t be surprised if you catch her in conversation with stray animals. (Publisher’s note: I have been observing her for a while, and I can say that she is courteous, blushes often, and tells good stories too!)
