Ogre: “So that decides it, doesn’t it? I can’t leave Etcetra here alone. Why don’t you go for your trip with Comma? I’ll decide whether to go to Dodo, after you get back.”
Me: “Are you sure? I could ask Comma to fix our dates for Bhopal once you’ve visited Dodo.”
Ogre shakes her head.
Ogre: “No, no, once I do go over to be with Dodo, who knows when I will come back?”
Me: “What? Don’t tell me, that you will start wandering all over the countryside with him?”
Ogre laughs: “I just may. It would serve Etcetra right.”
Me: “And what about me? Why punish me? Leaving me alone with Etcetra. What have I done to deserve that?”
Etcetra comes in just then, and glares at us in her usual fashion, for no reason. Both Ogre and I burst out laughing, and we just can’t stop, at which Etcetra glares at us a little more.
