“Wait for me at the junction. I will come at 9 PM” He said.
She waited at the junction.
She was engrossed in the book.
She was still reading the book.
She had barely looked up.
Then, she realized something.
It was so weird.
Nobody had bothered her.
Nobody has brushed against her.
No guy had stopped by her and said “aati kya?” (Hindi for will you come with me?)
No guy had said “Why are you waiting here?”
Nobody passed comments or made her uncomfortable.
She remembered those times waiting for buses and felt sad.
