A shadow in the evening

It took me a while to find my tongue. …Who are you? Staring in amazement I muttered under my breath.

Wrapped in the evening blush a callow youth wet behind the ears, you were standing in the doorway.

Holding the cup of non-dairy butter and cream I vegged out in the veranda. I could feel your gaze lightly skimming my rose chikan saree. A waft of steamy momo balls immersed in hot, tangy sauce bursting with exotic spices kissed my senses out of the blue.

In the dim light, I watched you sauntering towards me.

…Who are you…?
