The Bitter Truth

I was standing near a metro station for the last forty-five minutes. Lekha was late as usual. I have been calling her continuously, but have not been able to connect with her.

Down the memory lane Part-2

I should have told her earlier but to be very frank I had completely transported his memories to the oblivion. I admitted that I was recalling our good old college days. We soon returned to our hotel where we met Arnab with whom I introduced Malini and Nil. They exchanged courteous smiles and soon we were off to our room.
