The sky had turned into blue cobalt when they left the office building. They waited for the bus for a few minutes, but there was no sign of it coming anytime so they decided to walk to the station. It’s already late and they should catch the night train. They walked in silence before he turned to her and said,”Give me your laptop bag. It must be heavy.”
Without waiting for answer, he took the strap of the laptop bag off her shoulder and slung it across his body.
A mischievous thought run through her head, so she asked jokingly,”Don’t you want to take my hand, too?”
He flashed that boyish smile and...held her hand. Her heart skipped a beat as he swung their hands together inline with the footstep. She could have pulled her hand, but somehow his grip has become quite familiar.
