The afternoon break
“There she goes again!”
“I wonder what she does there every afternoon. I know the view from her balcony is great, but it is weird”
“Yeah, why does she have to close the door behind her? Does she smoke?”
“It doesn’t seem like that”
“Finally some time to myself! Phew! I’ve waited for this time since morning”, she thought to herself as she settled down on the bean bag in the balcony adjoining her office. This was her place and no one was allowed here, not even the housekeeping staff. Her phone was switched off and was lying on her table. No disturbances. She opened the book from her little cupboard and began reading.
Her hectic schedule left her with no time for reading, something that she always wanted to do. This was her getaway!
She checked the time and then looked at the number of pages remaining. “10 more minutes shouldn’t be a problem”, she told herself.
“She isn’t back yet. Should we check on her?”
“I think she’ll be fine”
“Look, she’s back! Do you notice that smile on her face when she’s back?”
“Yeah! I really wonder what she does there!”
She’d finished reading yet another book!
