“So Diya and you will be out of contact for quite sometime,” said Arjun leaning against the cash counter.
“Yes,” she said,”I am relieved to hear that you have left that dangerous place.”
“Are we on the right path Nisha? We have no job, no source of money and are venturing into something new. Is that all right?”
“I believe,” she said handing over the money to the staff,”that you must speak to a finance coach about this. I should have done so but now that time has gone. You and Vivan must seek professional advice on this.”
“Thanks for saying that,” he said scribbling something on a piece of paper.
“I hope Vivan and Diya’s relationship wont suffer due to this,” said Nisha observing him as he was busy scribbling.
“Dont worry, they will be fine. Absence makes the heart grow fonder.”
“I hope all stays good,” she said.
“This is our address,” he said handing her the piece of paper,”you both may come and visit anytime you wish.”
Diya had finally purchased the paper-weight. It was a healthy reminder for her that no matter what happened in life, there were people who cared for her. Even her parents who were completely pissed off by her decision were praying for her well-being. In his last e-mail her father had written that they were moving to a different place which was closer to the city hospital. Her gramdmother had not been keeping too well and they didnt want to take any risks. He had written that they all daily prayed for her to return home safely. Vivan, Arjun and Nisha were there for her too and would always remain. She was always blessed no matter how much she messed up.
“So, are we ready to leave,” asked Mrs. Nitya walking towards Diya,”Nisha is waiting at the door.”
“Sure,” said Diya sounding a little upset,”its time to leave now.”
