Chapter 1 -- Part 24

“Monay, I couldn’t sleep…” Amma’s voice is a whisper, but tinged with remorse. “I have been trying your number ever since your Achan went to bed. Where were you? I even called your cell; why didn’t you answer? Is Nisha not there?”
“Nisha’s gone to Hong Kong, Amma. On business. I was not at home. Had to meet a friend. Switched off the mobile,” I didn’t want to say I had been to the hospital to avoid the many questions that it would surely give rise.
“Are you angry with me, monay?”
“I thought you were the one who is upset with me, Amma.”
“How could I be? How could I ever be?”
“I know, Amma. Anyway, I am sorry if I hurt you. I didn’t mean to.”
“I couldn’t sleep at all. I kept tossing and turning… Now I am so relieved…”
“It’s very late, Amma. I am tired. I have work, tomorrow…”
“All right, all right. I won’t disturb you. Call me next week, okay…I will be waiting, as usual.”
“Of course, Amma…You too go to bed. And sleep well without thinking of this and that, okay.”
“Now I will, monay. Now I will…good night…O there is one more thing…”
