It was the gray day today. So chilly when I got up. Sound of rain splattering outside. It took me 30 minutes to roll out of bed. Too much rum was affecting me I guess. Thoughts of a bath made me shiver. I needed to buy a blanket soon. Bangalore was unnervingly changing. I lit my cigarette , the last one I saved for the morning.
Ring Ring. Did not expect anyone in the morning.
It was my neighbor. She looked 4-5 years older to me, a little on the stout side. I blinked at her. She was in a good mood today. She never talked to me so I suppose she was in a good mood today.
“I made breakfast for you”
My head was all heavy and I smiled weakly.
“I might get late for office you know”
“Even I need to go… so just come over and have something”
She made good breakfast and she was smiling all the time.
“Are you very happy today?” I asked.
“Hmm, good to share the joy”- I commented.
When I finished eating, she took my plate and smiled again at me.
“If you don’t mind, we can have dinner together and watch a video. I am really in the cooking mood today”- she said.
“It’s ok if you have something else”
“Do you have an extra blanket?”- I asked.
She was obviously surprised. “Yes I do”- she said anyway.
“Oh nice, it’s just gets chilly so I asked. Sounds, good. Been a long time, since I curled up, in the cold, inside one. See you”
