The Coffee House

He saw a few missed calls when he came out of the bath. He didn’t recognize the number and didn’t bother to call back too. The number rang again after a couple of hours and on connecting, he could hear a hesitant feminine “Hello”. He couldn’t place the voice and responded by a loud “Hello!”
There was no response and he was about to disconnect, when he heard a slightly better hello again. It did ring a bell but still couldn’t place the voice.“Who’s this?”He asked.

Mita!

Mi….and he couldn’t complete the word….

How are you?
I’m fine……um….where did you get my number?

Seema……
Oh…..so how have you been….where are you calling from….

You still ask more than one question together, is it??
Well leopards don’t change their spots….u see

Or is it kutte-ki-doom?

You still have a poor taste for animals, isn’t it?

I don’t associate the word ‘taste’ with animals…
Oh yes….the Queen of Veggies…..no living things and all that……by the way….why after so many days..or rather years……I guess……14 years…right?

14 and half…to be precise!
You missed the days…I guess!

Stop being sarcastic…please…..

Ok…so why the sudden call?

Can we meet?
Why? Er….when?
