Trust-Devil dressed as an Angel

How do you trust someone?

This is one question that nags most of us sometime or the other. However for Miny, this was the wrong question. Reason was pretty simple; she chose never to trust anyone. For her the question was, “why to trust at all?” Her life was good, she was happy so there was no reason to give control of that happiness to another person by trusting them.

Taking her in his arms, hugging her close, he assured her, “Don’t worry sweetie, I will help you finish it.”

Between tears, she replied, “But, she will still scold me, she favours other students over me.”

He assured her again, “Don’t worry, I will have a word with her, so this doesn’t happen again.”

Tanya was sitting by the railing of the hill top, lost in memories of 6 year old Tanya with her Superman.

“Hey, it’s your lucky day…. Boss has called you in his office”

Akshat was sitting at his desk, hearing this statement from his colleague, he replied with a smile, “Thanks for informing me, lucky or not is yet to be seen!”

Akshat wondered what this was all about as he was on his way to this meeting. He entered his Boss’s cabin took a seat and started their usual discussions on the status of project he was handling and other related matters.
