‘See I am going to be an advocate in future. Will solve complex cases not puzzles and riddles.,” said Cyrus.
“How cute!” Nodded Jennifer.
“Come to puzzle section of the bookstore I have to check some books of puzzles and how to solve them. Then I will try to solve it,” replied Cyrus.
“Listen Mr. Lawman! How this type of puzzle is recited?”
Then Jennifer reads the puzzle in her sweet tone!
Pause, rhyming, pronunciation everything was perfect.
At the end Cyrus claps and says aloud, “Excellent performance poetess Jenny!
“Thank you Mr stranger!”
Two couples sitting behind them were listening their chat and remembering their early days! How they were bindaas at that time. But after hearing the lines of puzzle Shekhar’s normal face turned serious. He looks uneasy now! He has many questions in his mind. Who is she! How she got the same puzzle!
Suddenly he awakes by the i-phone tune and takes his right hand to his pocket. Not my mobile!
He says to himself.
It was Cyrus Daruwala’s i-phone.
Cyrus is talking on his phone, “Ya ya give me some time I will solve your problem.”
Cyrus says to Jennifer, “ I have to make a call right now. Signal is not proper here. I will be back in ten minutes. Its a very urgent call.”
Jennifer nodded in agreement. Ok.
“Thanks baby! I am so sorry. Select some books for you.” Cyrus went outside to make his urgent call.
“What happened?” Tara asked Shekhar, “Why are you looking so upset?”
“Tara! That young girl has recited the same puzzle that I have with me and trying to get its solution.”
“Oh! Let me talk her,”Tara replies and steps towards the bookshelf where Jennifer is busy in sorting out books.”
Hi! My name is Tara! Are you from Delhi?
No! No! Myself Jennifer from Kochi.
Nice to meet you! I am from Mumbai!
Are you alone or…
Na na! My hubby Shekhar is with me!
Shekhar! Come! Meet Jennifer!
Hello! She responds Shekhar in a very low voice.
“I was listening to your puzzle! It was nice! Your voice is also very sweet-toned.”
“May I know the source of your puzzle?”
Jennifer was not ready for this question. She surprises first but controls her face expression in a second.
