*** i was shocked when i saw Jenny and she too.


My mouth was widely opened as she was stood at my front.
My madam asked me from the parlor, who is that?
I pretended so that she wouldnt find out that we knew each other.
Aunty,is brother’s ( my boss ) cousin, i replied.
I ushered her in and she sat beside my madam as they
greet. I left them and entered my room.


My mind couldnt rest,
chai! This world can never stop amusing me some times.
After some minutes,my madam called me and i rushed in immediately and she gave me money to go and buy cold malt for Jenny since the one we have in the fridge are not cold.
I went out to buy it, immediately i opened our gate, i saw that same fair ugly girl that my madam met me with that day my
madam came back from village.


I waved at her and she told me to stop and i stopped to knw what it is. ***
