Trust Me, Boss!


As the first female member of the bomb-squad, Liza was often the object of attention.
Initially, when she seemed lost in wires, onlookers remarked, “Women are not wired for this!”
But, Liza never gave up.
-----
The squad’s young leader seemed to understand her perfectly.
He knew what drove Liza.
Her husband was one of the innocent victims of a bomb-blast.
His father too had been killed...
-----
A complex time-bomb was ticking.
Liza took the initiative.

“Are you sure?” her leader asked taking her hand in his.
“Trust me, Boss.”

“Yes, Mom”, he said as Liza cut a wire.
