Laya opened the door and quietly sneaked in. Her sister Maya was fast asleep. She did not want to wake her up. She tried to be as quiet as possible. Laya worried that the tingling of her earing would break her sister's deep sleep. She checked Maya's handbag for the brown wallet. Luckily she found it in the first flap of her bag. She grabbed the purse and sneaked out as quietly as she sneaked in.

Laya Grabbed her bag in the corridor and stepped out of her safe home into the haunting darkness. She felt terrible taking this bold step. Could not believe that a timid girl like her could go so far to be with the love of her life.

She reached the bus stop in the middle of the night in an auto. She took the bus to the town Praveen asked her to go to. She boarded the bus and messaged Praveen that they were on plan. She reached the town in a few hours at the break of dawn.


It was a terrible feeling knowing that her family would have realized by now that she was gone. In a few hours the entire town would know that their adorable daughter has disgraced them for life. She waited for Praveen to message her back. She dreaded the fact that in an hour or so she will be getting a call from home checking on her.

On the other side of town, Praveen woke from his peaceful sleep ...feeling contended that he had disgraced the girl whose parents had disgraced his family 20 years back...He saw Laya's message. Gave a smirky smile switched off his phone and went back to sleep.

Laya was standing at the bus stop...wondering why Praveen did not respond yet. She was clutching to her bag...with anxiety flushing all over her face...She was looking forward to a new life full of love and happiness with Praveen completely oblivious of the truth.

She was still waiting ............
