Et tu ?


'Give me your number again ,I just lost my address book’ requested Rohit.


'9211 04201’.........


.....'& Radhika’s?


‘hey isn’t my number enough? .....Why do you want my wife's number ? Rahul joked.



‘Ufff, I am planning to run away with her.... happy?’ they both laughed loudly.



‘921104202’-



'Thanks buddy’ said Rohit...with the two airtickets clutched in his palm.





Gyanban Thoughts - Thought of giving it an alternative tittle - A friend indeed ...is a friend in need ! am guessing most readers would think Rohit ran away with Radhika...see how we all think alike ? But I must confess somewhere the thought did cross my mind what if Rohit was actually clutching the connecting flight ticket ?
