Her mind was in a state of mayhem. She had vowed to keep her distance but found herself being vanquished by the desire in her heart. It wasn’t easy to control deep-seated emotions, after all. It was a battle between her mind and her heart, and eventually the latter won. She gave in to her temptation and took rapid giant strides towards him.
She stood facing him in glee and stretched her hands, while reminding herself that she was doing nothing wrong.
“One plate pani puri please, Bhaiya”, she exclaimed.
Voracity had got the better of the diet.
