In the cold november rain

Hey! I know you. It was someone I never expect to see again at assignments.

Hello. A shy smile.

I thought you’re still in Myanmar or something. What happened?

Yeah, I was there for two-and-a-half years. But then I ran out of cash. A rather sheepish smile this time.

And now you’re back, doing business reporting again.

Yeah, back to wearing proper shoes, and tucking in my shirt. A shared laugh.

It was a very pleasant surprise to see him yesterday. Still a nice guy, still grounded. Would love to listen to his ‘war stories’ some time.
