Neha stepped into the campus much earlier than her usual time. It was only yesterday that she lost a parent. She was not suppose to be here now, but been at home and engulfing in grief was more than she could handle. So escaping into the cheerfulness of campus was her only way.
She came early, because she needed time to compose herself before her friends started coming and comforting her. But when she reached her class, she saw the least expected person. Her bestfriend. He was one person who never reached class before the lecture starts. And here he was now, an hour before the college time. He was sitting at his usual place as if waiting for her, to assure her of his friendship. Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eyes. And at that moment she felt less lonely and more loved.
