A Short Story
“Stop that goofing” She was angry
“What did I do?” He was laughing at the other end “I just reacted at what you said”
“You and your stupid jokes”
“Its not a joke” He was laughing on the phone “I am serious”
She could feel his laughter even though he couldn’t see her and she loved it even when he pushed her on the verge of anger
“Ok! Now shut up” She almost shouted
He went silent immediately as ordered by her. She waited for him to speak but only silence at the other end. She waited as moments slipped by but no words at the other end
“Now will you speak” She smiled at the other end “As if you listen to everything I say”
“Of course” He laughed again
He remembered the conversation looking at her phone number in the mobile address book. His fingers played on the mobile button to search for the “Delete” option.
He waited as his mind fought over to delete her name forever from the address book and then just like that, he let it stay!
