A Mirage



He sat under the colorful umbrellas in Miracle Garden, an oasis in the desert city of Dubai.

As she entered, he checked the ring in his pocket. Looking at her admiringly, he thought “she is prettier than the prettiest flower here”.

She walked to him and announced, “I am moving to NewYork, you too move on.” She confessed that her affection was more of her need when she was alone in Dubai. Now that she was moving, she was done with him.

Taking the ring out of his pocket, he wondered how he mistook a mirage for an oasis.
