Hide and Seek

written by: Bala

 

He twisted his fingers and then his hands, stopped, picked up pebbles, and threw them far. And beside him, she sat, picking up shreds of thread, knotting, unknotting, as if it helped to ease the knots she felt her stomach had become.
The sun was a silent spectator, it was probably too shy as it set.
They got up, still avoiding any eye contact, thinking to themselves, ”Who would say it first.” It wasn’t the first time they were playing hide and seek in love.
