It is micro fiction time again – this one is on the theme “Time”. This idea came to my mind at 3:00 AM in the night while putting my toddler back to sleep. 🙂
“You don’t value time at all, Akash. You always miss the 8:05 AM local.”, chided Meera lovingly.
“Oh, my punctual wife! Thanks to you, I will be there at the station before time today. ” , replied Akash giving her a peck on the cheek as he left home.
Minutes later, Meera switched on the television to the news of a bomb blast. Time froze for her forever.
