Finally this was his time to return back to the city of his choice. He had been to this alien place for so long and tomorrow he would be back in his home state. Not that he had been home-sick but being in one’s own state is something everybody cherishes deep within heart.
As usual, morning started with a bad note. He found himself sleeping for longer than usual and when he was completely awake he realized that he had not packed a single thing and he had to catch the 3.00 pm bus. He called his roommates to help him pack his luggage.
When the bus conductor asked for tickets, a brief search through all his pockets revealed that that he had forgotten his journey ticket at the home itself. There was no time to go back home and get the ticket. He was cursing himself over how he could he had forgotten to get the ticket. He had no option but to buy another ticket worth 1000 rupees. Luckily he got the sole remaining last ticket. The journey was not very pleasant as he had to travel on the last seat.
He reached home the next day, got fresh. When he was about to throw his trouser for wash he froze for what he saw. In his pocket lay a neatly folded original journey ticket.
