As Angel entered the library, her pace slowed and her breath quickened. She cast a quick glance at the corner seat. It was empty.
“Cheer up! Your crush will soon be here.” Divya teased.
“My crush?” Angel sneered. “I couldn’t care less.”
“There comes Laksh.” Divya grinned. “Your fan is cute.”
Feeling her color rise, Angel sat down and opened her books.
She sensed his eyes on her but she kept hers determinedly lowered. Until curiosity overpowered her. She looked up to find his eyes trained on her – an intense yet pleading look in them.
Embarrassed, she gathered her books and trotted off.
To her horror, Laksh followed her. “Wait!” he caught up with her just outside the door.
Red-faced, heart thudding Angel wondered what she would say if he came clean about his crush – dared she also…
“Excuse me?” She stared.
“I said I am sorry I didn’t mean to stare. You look exactly like my elder sister, a mother to me, miss her so much…”
