THE MOMENT

Friday night.

It has been two months since Sam left her country for studying abroad. The excitement and eagerness she initially brought here, to this new country, seem not to be lessened through time. Sam is decorating her room's door for the Fall Festival, which is going to be held tomorrow at her school. "It must be a terrific fun-filled day"- Sam is thinking, with a blissful smile on her lip.
