You have always been a late riser but you have never missed a squash session before,” Tina smiled up at him. Her expression changed as an idea hit her and she exclaimed, “Unless your dare devil stunts on that monstrous bike have again resulted in an accident! Are you hurt somewhere?

Upon seeing his father dumbfounded and his mother unable to meet anyone’s eyes, Yuvi, sitting next to him, peeked over KD’s shoulder to look at the picture. He sucked in a quick breath. “Oh!” “Pass it to me,” Biji ordered. KD handed over the picture to Yuvi who passed it around the table to finally reach Biji.
