He was sitting opposite her across a table. She was with iced cappuccino. He was with yogurt and muesli parfait.
One afternoon The Delhi Walla was at Café Turtle in Khan Market.
She was looking at him. He was looking at her.
She would suddenly cast her eyes downwards. He would suddenly cast his eyes downwards.
She would then again raise her eyes to look at him. He would then again raise his eyes to look at her.
She was jotting down something on a piece of white paper. He was jotting down something on a piece of white paper.

She was drawing his portrait. He was drawing her portrait.
It was a beautiful moment.
