I for Independent #AtoZChallenge

I‘I just reached Bangalore,’ said Sameer on the phone.  ‘Are you sure you will be Ok alone?  Why don’t you stay at your mother’s?  Or call her home?’

‘Sameer, Puhleeese!  You are sounding like my mom now.  I am quite independent.  I am not scared to stay alone.   I am also connected to all my friends and family via facebook, twitter, phone.  I just need to call them and they will help me out,’ cried Dia.

‘OK. OK.. Be careful!  Close the door and windows properly when you go to sleep.’ 

Dia spent the next two hours on Facebook chatting up her old friends.  Then she was on the phone with them.  She was blissfully happy alone when she saw him.  He was near the window curtain.  He looked fat and healthy.  In a dull yellow color.  It was a motionless Lizard.

‘AAAIIIEEEEEEE’ screamed Dia.  She was terribly scared of lizards.  She ran into the bedroom and closed the door.  Suddenly, she missed Sameer and wished he were here.

***This has been written for the A to Z Challenge 2015. My theme is A to Z in the life of Dia and Sameer, a geek and non-geek couple.  Short stories on their approach to daily life.  Do you know people like them?  Do share the stories with me. ***
