Message with the flowers

I’d always rush to her house in times of celebrations or whenever she needed a shoulder to cry on.

It kinda feels funny to order a bouquet and accompanying paraphernalia online, to be delivered next door. They will take a day to deliver. But the local florist shut shop during the lockdown. And her house is sealed to protect others.

We have a long chat on the phone.She misses us as we miss her.

I receive a call from the delivery boy in the morning,

“Are you sure the message is right? I see a funeral being organized here.”
