A smile :)

It was a very usual day of mine. I was waiting for the car, outside. There were lot of tired people crossing me. Guess most of them were going home from work, exhausted, just like me.

I was looking around, not knowing how much more time I had to wait. Just then, I noticed a woman walking towards me, from the farther end of the road. The woman was one of the drained lot.
