They both laugh and John leaves for his place.
Rest of the day goes working on critical issues. In between she sees msg from Pranav , but does not reply as she is busy with her work. Rasika get the late night cab to her house so finally when she gets into the cab she replies
‘Just got into cab, very tired’
She puts her handsfree into her ears and listens to her favorite songs and enjoys the cold breeze through the window.She rewinds the things that has happened over the past few days with Pranav.
‘Madam you are the last, where should i drive?’Interrupts the driver
She tells the route to her house and reaches home.
‘Ya it happens,that’s y they pay you’ replies Pranav.
These regular conversation goes for a week.They wake up to each other message and sleep after saying good night to each other.One day Rasika reaches her office too early.She dials his number from office landline.
‘hello’ answers Pranav
‘Hey hi, Rasika here, this is my office desk no.’
‘Dont you have any work in the office, u call me this early’
The conversation continues….
After she cuts the call she goes into a deep thought of analyzing if she could take things further
‘Morning’ Rahul greets her..
she replies with her smile.Half the day goes without much work.Suddenly at 12 they get a production issue. Rasika takes the responsibility of finding the Root cause and providing a fix for the issue.She struggles and toils so much before she could provide a fix for the bug.Around 4 she takes her lunch box to food court to finish.
‘Good job Rasika..so late lunch is it?? Oh ya i get it.. Hmmm.. thank you for taking the ownership for the bug and providing the fix’
‘Its my job Rahul’
‘Ok have your lunch in peace now, i dont want to disturb u, take care’
Half way eating ,she meddles with her mobile and finds few msg from Pranav.
‘Ya tell me Pranav, just saw ur msg’
‘Wat doing?’ instantly comes a reply from Pranav
‘Oh hmmm… ok.. Can we meet this weekend??’
Rasika types ‘Yes’ then types ‘No’ then erases and thinks….
‘Confused??‘ pings Mr X to Rasika
