TETE-E-TETE (A SHORT STORY A DAY #13)
By Neel Anil Panicker
“Shweta, you are not telling a lie when you say this guy, this ‘dashing, six foot cutesey hunk’ (‘your words not mine’) you’ve been dating for a month now actually did something like that?”
‘Cross my heart, Ashu, I speak only the truth when I say that Eddie did fly half the globe on my birthday to buy me a bespoke candybar that I love to distraction’.
“Amazing this friend of yours to have almost sank the Titanic just to get you a candybar.“
‘Robbed the bank would be more appropriate’.
“Looks like your friend is cut from from a different material.”
“Cloth, my dear. It’s an idiom”.
