Conversation in the close proximity of the sushi bar had been easy, and her hopes had risen. Not long after the first set of California Rolls had been eaten, he stopped mid-sentence and pulled her in for that premature kiss.Like an aging telephone exchange out in the country, middle aged hearts miss connections, dial wrong numbers or drop calls. But the lines stay busy as we reach out, hoping a kindred spirit is just a tinkle away.Crackle, hiss and static on the line, allo, allo? Are you there?These short stories are about outstretched hands. Sometimes they find a warm responsive palm, a reassuring squeeze. More often than not, sadly, they feel fingers slip away, footsteps departing down an echoing hallway.In O Broken Rose, Suzi prowls her home, alone with her memories, filled with anticipation of his visit, her emotions building to a roiling crescendo. When he arrives, an unexpected touch sparks the fuse ......***Aditya Srinivasan lives in the California Bay Area, and writes between business deals, long runs and myriad connections.Whether warm and vibrant or broken and filled with regret, connections maketh the man.
