A Coffee in the Park!!

“Varsha, I’ll get you a coffee, stay here only, okay?” said Karthik.She nodded saying “Ok, be back fast”.She walked a bit and sat down in one of the benches in the garden. It was quite late in the night and there were not many people in her vicinity in a star-less night with the clouds covering the moon and the only source of vision were those lightings on both sides of the paths in the park and they were small enough to hide the tears in her eyes. Her last four years flashed through her mind and she closed her eyes to let her mind talk with the breeze. (Thoughts)Varsha and Ananya lived in a rented house, in the a floor above the owners, another malayali family permanently settled here in Bangalore.
