“Why do you have to come home so late? Whenever I ask you, you never
answer me straight“, she asked as he entered the house.
“Can’t you at least welcome me with a smile or say something nice. You
question my hard work and think of it as some vice” he replied to what she commented,
feeling quite offended.
“Oh so now I can’t even ask you about such little things in your life,
treat me with respect after all I am your wife!” tears rolled down her eyes, he looked at her and thought ‘there she goes! One word I say and she cries“.
Her temper flared, he glared.
She wailed, he acted like he never cared.
He said, “I don’t want any food today, had my fill, I’ll just complete
some work now as unlike you I don’t have any time to kill“.
He went to the room to change, his hand reached his pocket. Ah, the
anniversary gift he had got for her today – a picture of them together , enclosed in a golden locket.
She wiped her tears, sitting in the room alone. She had recorded a
song for him as an anniversary gift on her phone.
Two fools in love, foolish enough to not see the love they have for
each other all this while.
Had either of them behaved in a saner way, the end of this story
would’ve brought a smile.
