Shadowing! I laugh when Rama confesses her crime to me.
Apparently there’s this young couple in her office who follow elaborate rituals to keep their love safe from the prying eyes of their colleagues. Each day after work the young man and the beautiful girl leave the office at different times and meet far away. My good friend, harmlessly ambling to her vehicle bump right into them.The girl turns a bright crimson,the boy speeds his vehicle and swoosh! they vanish.
The second time, the boy parked his bike at a farther location,awaiting the arrival of his paramour. When the girl huffed and puffed on to the bike and turned, guess who she met ??? Rama!!! This time she gave Rama a rather nasty look that sent shivers down her spine.
I was beginning to suspect Rama’s intentions, when she told me that the young man was on a long leave . Saved from your evil eyes, I exclaim.
The next day, Rama was dancing her way to a nearby theater in the twilight eager to experience a drama in the real sense when she stopped herself from bumping into someone. She looked up, looked down,hunched her shoulders and disappeared in the melee. Luckily they had not seen her this time, thank god!
You are a curious cat, I tease Rama. I have the super natural ability to sense romance in the air, Rama declares in self-appreciation.
I think about the couple,what makes them guard their love so fiercely? Why so secretive?
It is not difficult to guess the answer.
