The walk

“Maya – I think we’ll have to go to the other end of the city to collect your school stuff today. Let’s get going.”


Both of them spent an enjoyable day after their shopping, catching the latest flick in movies and having a pizza lunch positively swimming in cheese. Walking back from the nearest metro station, Aks seemed lost in contemplation. Maya felt a strange sense of déjà vu walking between the blocks. She stiffened as the saw the now-familiar burly shadows creeping up. She turned to shout – “Aks..” and found her limp form being pushed into a car behind.
