She was very nervous. After much thinking, she'd take the decision to pass the letter to Sid.
The best way was through books, she decided when she couldn't think of any other way.
She was too shy to tell him face to face. She was afraid she might blunder.
She collected the class notes that she used to borrow from Sid, which gave her reasons to talk to him.
She slipped the letter in one of the notebooks.
"Hi, Where are you going, Reena ?" called Neha, the chatterbox, from behind.
"To Sid, to return his notes", she told her, fearing of the nervousness in her voice.

Reena murmured curses at Neha. "Now what to do. I am dead now ?" She kept the books down at the steps. And started searching the letter. Fortunately she found it.
She sighed, loud enough to attract those around. She smiled at them, turned around back towards home, deciding that she would return the books next day, with a fresh new start....
