Sample text:

Radhika anxiously looked at his face. She noticed the change in his voice and tone. She wondered when she came to know that he hesitated to tell her something.

“Tell me.” She looked at his face. The smile on his face made her heart race as he stared at her with a playful grin.

"I..." his voice broke.


"I... love..."

"You love?" She scrunched her eyebrows.

"I love to watch your dance performance!" he said, looking at her.

She then burst into laughter. Louder... and more loudly... and finally, he too joined her in laughing.

"Okay, cool. When is your next program?" he asked.

"I will let you know soon, if you can provide me your contact number," she said.

He took out a purse from his pocket and gave her his visiting card.

"Thank you," she said. With that, she quickly made her way beyond the horizon. Jayakumar stood there, looking at her for a while as she slowly disappeared. He simply wished if she could turn back.

And yes! She turned back and gave him a wonderful smile.

He too had a smile on his face as the wind slightly flew by.
