Maya sat alone, sadly, in the same table where she usually sat with Kushal on their anniversary. Chimpu, the owner, served her himself with a grieved glance at her drooping profile.
She still remembered Kushal’s enthusiastic monologue on their first anniversary – “Babe, I can’t believe I am saying this but multiverse travel through wormholes is possible! I just have to perfect the technology! We’ll be the first universe hoppers in our world!”
She had smiled at his enthusiasm and shaken her head. That enthusiasm was what had gotten to him in the end. A blast at his lab had resulted in everything burnt to cinders. They hadn’t even be able to find his remains.
She looked up interrupted at her train of memories to see the handsome man sitting opposite to her. Kushal smiled at her and said – “I told you I would have the tech ready for you by our 10th anniversary – didn’t I?”
