School reunion! They were meeting after a long gap of 22 years. Samiha had intentionally avoided any contact with them all these years.
Somebody found contacts for a couple of them and started a WhatsApp group which kept growing over past year. But Samiha stayed out of it even after constant persuasion from her best friend Radha.
Over many months they had a blast on the group, especially teasing Uday about why he was still single.
They planned an informal get together of camping overnight by a lake.
Samiha felt nervous expecting quizzical looks about her divorce and being a single mother.
But to her relief, everybody welcomed her without a single uncomfortable question while Uday was an easy target for all the leg pulling.
Sitting by the campfire, he held her hand and finally opened his heart. Love rekindled right under the stars.
