A bump in the road, woke me up
Just the right time.
I looked at the open, two lane, undivided highway
I looked at the speedometer, 90 kph, reasonably fast for Indian roads
I looked at the driver, he nodded.
He wasnt looking at me.
His eyes were half closed, he nodded again.
I said, nothing. I just watched.
He clumsily tried to adjust the neck rest, like a sleeping man would adjust his pillow
I watched, In rapt attention.
He leaned over and placed his elbow on the passenger seat and rested his head on his hand.
I waited for him to close his eyes and sleep.
I did not want to die. I dont want to die. But, this could be interesting.
90 kilometers per hour, he veered towards the other lane
Then back, again.
Anytime now, I thought.
“How long will it take, brother”
My colleague asked.
I looked at him, kill-joy, I muttered under my breath and went off to sleep.
Funny thing is..
He, Did not know.
