Caught in the Middle

Words 101

“When is Deva coming?” Arnav asked Khushi.

“He hasn’t confirmed.”

“I’m booking his tickets.” Arnav fumed.


“Does he plan to come after Diwali?” He silenced her.

“Why did Dad book my tickets?” Deva blasted Khushi. “I told you I would manage.”

“So what if he booked?” Khushi soothed.

“But Mom, I have a presentation then! Please cancel it.”

“If I cancel, he may not get any tickets!” Arnav warned Khushi. “It’s Diwali.”

“I’ll manage Mom.”

“How?” Arnav grilled Khushi. “Teleportation?”

“Mom please tell Dad to chill.”

“High time Deva grew up Khushi and acted responsibly.”

“Mom perhaps I’ll skip Diwali.”

      1. read it too..but there I got more of Sonu-Lovely feel..maybe because of the recent reading of their story.. and also I think that we (as in readers) still donno much about Deva -Mishti relationship dynamics unlike Angel – Shubam ( in other words – pls write more about Dev-Misthi)

    But I see a big tree towering above everything else… Deva or Arnav, hehee!!
