It Was Time

He noticed the flower-seller on his way to office.

He thought she was smart to be operating her stall near his high-rise.


He had employed a thousand employees.

There was always some celebration at office.

Today was special.

It was his daughter Rizzy’s birthday.

He felt like buying roses for Rizzy.

Rizzy loved them.

But, how would he gift her those?


When she was six, Rizzy was kidnapped.

He had looked everywhere.

She would have been twenty today.


He approached the flower-girl.

He selected a rose bouquet.

He noticed she had a birthmark and tattoo right where Rizzy used to!
