Valentine 2027

Subscribe in a reader

The silence was becoming heavy as she waited for the person on the other side of the counter to get her what she wanted. At first she was averse to this kind of occassions and celebrations but then now she felt it was time to express her emotion. It arrived finally, a gloss laminated A4 plus card that had the Valentine message splashed across it's cover. She felt a sudden burst of content as she felt its embossed letters.

The slight drizzle of rain was nearing its end as she walked towards the one who mattered most to her. The one who was always there for her and used to address her proper name. What made him special was that he listened to all her grunts and rumblings without ever saying a word back. She punched the numbers and waited.

" Good Evening, Ms. Nithya! It's nice to see you again."
As the words drowned into her ears she felt her heart vibrate faster and her body feeling a sensation she had never felt before.

She was introduced to him when she was old enough to walk alone on the road with the new guiding device. In the city where people had no time to spare for a word or a helping hand and technology ruled minds, here was one who was going out of his way to make her feel wanted.

She waited for his intoxicating voice. His deep warm voice responded to her thought " How can I be of assistance today? Would your transaction be withdrawal, deposit or balance inquiry?"
