Jyoti :: “Do you think I am good looking?”
Rahul :: ‘Hmm what?” (looking confused)
Jyoti :: “I asked do you think I am good looking? Oh! Never mind, just make sure that Alok does his math homework?
Rahul :: “Why? Is he having problems?”
Jyoti :: “You know he is not good at Math, come on Rahul help him out will you?” (feeling frustrated)
Rahul :: “Okay”
Both father and son settled in front of the TV to do the math homework. Jyoti had to restrain herself from grabbing the remote and switching off the TV.
Jyoti :: “Rubi! Please stop chatting on the phone and help me set the table!!”
Rubi :: “Oh! Mom, I have homework to do and I also have a test tomorrow, can you not ask Alok to do it?”
Jyoti :: “In that case, give me your phone and get along with your studies”
Rubi walked up to her with a sulky look and put the phone down on the table and walked away in a huff. As Jyoti worked at getting dinner on the table, she reflected on her day. In the bustle of her household activities it was very easy to forget about her silly crush. In fact she had even convinced herself that it was a momentary aberration. She told herself she was too sensible to let her mind wander. She managed to convince herself that Amit was a good 12-13 years younger than her and she should think of him as a youngster and not harbor such feelings for him.
