‘I did.. I did. I love your ear-rings.’
‘Which color are they?’

Dia grimaced and walked out of the door.

‘They will not even notice what I am wearing. Relax, ‘ said Sameer looking at his watch.
‘Men are not only from Mars, but also color blind,’ thought Dia.
Sameer looked into the mirror once again and changed the shirt before leaving.
