…Roohi got frightened and disturbed by her parents’ behavior and ran towards the bus stop when they were busy yelling at each other.
She shot past the bus-stop, her cheeks flaming with shame and disgust. She imagined the entire school staring at her. Accusing eyes. Jeering eyes.
A crowd is the best hideout for solitude! As she walked on, she suddenly jerked to a standstill. She was out of her comfort zone. She was lost!
Her mobile rang. It was a strictly ‘Incoming only, no outgoing’‘ mobile, as per school rules.
Mother! Roohi punched the ‘Reject’ button. Good, she thought, let everyone miss her. Good punishment.
Her mobile battery was dangerously low. Last night’s verbal war between her parents had rattled her. She had forgotten to charge the mobile. Infact, she had not even eaten her breakfast! Her stomach growled as she spied a Barista Coffee shop. She furtively checked her pocket money. Rs 150!
She stood nervously behind a tall young woman, who ordered a Blue Moon mocktail. Roohi stared at the heavy camera slung over slim, tanned shoulders. At the counter, Roohi decided on a Cappuccino and caramel pastry.
