Laya walked back to her cabin and she felt as if she was left in the dark. There was something that Pooja was hiding from her. However, she strongly believed that it was just her imagination and there was absolutely nothing wrong with her best friend.
She tried to concentrate on better things like, taking leave from work for a day or two. She quickly applied for leave in the leave requisition system. She was tired and she badly needed a break. She thought of taking leave on Friday but taking a leave in the middle of the week is lovelier than an extended vacation.
She called Keshav and surprisingly he attended the call immediately however he said, “I am in middle of an important case. I will call you in a while dear.”
After almost 4 hours he called. This was problem with the policemen, their “in a while” generally goes on for hours or even days.
“Can we go out somewhere tomorrow?”
“Sorry dear. I am busy as a beaver for next two days.”
“Err. Okies. I understand.”
“Are you angry?”
“No, I understand your situation” she said genuinely.
“This is what I love in you, you understand me a lot.”
“Hmmm… Only this you love?”
“Well, there are other things too. I have to go now. Take care okay?”
After the call ended with a beep sound again she was left in the dark. Was Keshav avoiding her?
To be continued…. If you have missed the prequels then do read it from here.
Love & Cheers,
