David was worried now. It was his 12th day in the Hotel. The high expenditure was beginning to pinch him now. He had to search for the accommodation as soon as possible, he thought. But to his dismay every morning since he shifted to the city, he has been thinking the same thing. It was very hard for a bachelor to get an independent house on rent in such a reserved community. But he needed it, so that he can write peacefully his new novel. He venture out of his room and went to the restaurant. He sat on the bar stool and asked for a beer. As he waited he looked at the person beside him. He seemed to be tensed and lost. David could not control his urge and his friendly nature overtook him. He said turning to the person, “Hello, Friend, My name is David!”.
His smile seemed to be so bright and contagious that the other person too replied with a shy smile “Hi, I am Ron!”. And as the bartender poured beer in their glasses, David started the conversation. When he asked if anything was worrying him, Ron replied, “Yes.. I would be moving out of the city in three days and I wanted to give my house on rent. But nobody seems to take it as it is quite isolated from the city center”. David was smiling now. Ron seemed taken aback by his expression. David said smilingly, “Can we drive to your house, I might be the one you are searching for!”. And then both of them had big friendly laugh together!
