Sanjay felt jubilant. Rajashree had fallen in love with him. He rushed to find the woman who had given him the letter. Rajashree was staying in the guesthouse – about a mile away. Sanjay was tired, exhausted, but he walked his fastest mile to the guesthouse. He saw Rajashree standing at the entrance, a suitcase beside her. As she saw him, she blushed with surprise. She felt like a prisoner being caught while escaping.
“Where are you going?” he asked her.
Rajashree had recovered enough to smile back, “I am going to Ooty to meet my daughter in boarding school – to bring her home.”
“I am coming with you,” said Sanjay, and he took Rajashree in his arms held her tightly and whispered in her ear, “From now on, we shall make our journey together.”
