It was a typical day in college. Boring lectures and a sleepy mood. One difference, though. My friend hadn’t come.
I called on her cell twice. It was switched off. It annoyed me a little.
Then came the 20 minutes I was dreading – the recess. Spending the recess with no company is seriously painful.
I went down to the canteen got myself a hot chai (tea) and sipped it while staring out of the window. It was oddly comforting to do that. I didn’t feel alone. I felt peaceful.
I noticed the things I don’t normally notice – the leaves on the tree in front of the window. They looked fresh and dainty. Very unlike the other trees around it, this tree had leaves with mesmerising yellowish green colour.
And somehow, that tree turned out to be a very good company for the recess.
