Hari started his day in a grumpy mood. He couldn’t sleep even for a single minute the previous night.
Aarti, her eyes, that glimpse of surprise and her smile had fascinated him so much that he couldn’t help but stay awake thinking about her.
He had always had a crush on Aarti. Now, these chance meetings have added extra mileage to that.
He tried hard to concentrate on his work when his supervisor called him.
“Hari, your phone call!” yelled Puneet showing his irritation in his voice.
Hari has never shared his supervisor’s phone number with anyone. So, he was very surprised about that phone call.
“Is this Hari?” asked a blandly toned woman’s voice.
“Yes. Who is this?”
“I am calling from the princess of Chandpur’s office. Her royal highness Princess Aarti would like to talk to you.”
Hari couldn’t breathe for a few seconds. Meanwhile, he could hear the phone call being transferred to another line, and he heard a sweet voice saying, “Hello!”.
It took him less than a second to realize it was Aarti.
“Are you there?” she asked with a slight mix of doubt.
