A complete silence prevailed. He touched her shoulder with warm hands. She turned back and hugged him tighter than ever. Tears filled her eyes and few sobbings followed. For a moment he could not understand but knew for sure that something was wrong. Her rough past had suddenly crept in in her mind. With not even a single question he hugged her even tighter, allowing her to cry her heart out, drinking his own tears. After all was done, she stepped out, gave a mild smile, looked at him at said, “Thank you”. He wiped her tears with his soft hands and replied, “No sweetheart, it’s ‘I Love You’.”
