I woke with a start and found my hand frantically searching for my
phone. It, like every other part of me was hoping against hope that
the two calls received had indeed happened; that with two trembling
clicks I would hear her.
You see, Reader - I had fallen in love last night.
I knew her first as a whisper - a soft background lilt introduced
by her uncle. She danced between her uncle's syllables as he made
arrangements for us to meet. A girl from Kerala, long absconded but

she glided through the hallways of the colonial hospital. This
careful daughter of a careless man told me about growing up

her slender hands framed her words; each childhood story
embellished with a swish of her chiffon skirt, each regret causing
the arcs of her delicate body to yield. She spoke dearly of her
