She was searching for somebody there to ask time

It happened in lovely Bangaluru. That calm afternoon I was about to reach Vijayanagara in bus no 61 A. I was at the door on the footboard. I could see a little garden and few small tents of the workers who might be working for the construction of the subway nearby. I saw a girl near that who was peeping out of the garden wall whose eyes could tell she is searching for someone.
I reached the bus stop. Started to walk in the same direction where I saw that girl towards the hotel. It was rainy and no one was on the footpath. The girl was still standing there, she looked happy by seeing me just like she got what she was waiting for. It was already ten minutes past when I saw her from the bus. I don’t know when she started looking for somebody. When I came nearer she asked “ಟೈಮ್ ಎಸ್ಟಾಯ್ತು?” what is the time now? I replied “ಎರಡೂವರೆ” two thirty. She was so happy and ran into the tent.
I had seen so many people asking time. But I didn’t know there are people who need to wait for someone to tell time!!
