Trembling due to the startling stillness, he suddenly got intimidated by a touch of an arm over his right shoulder that sent chills down the spine. Wiping the tiny droplets of sweat flowing down his forehead, he turned around unhurriedly. He rather witnessed a glistening face of his wife that was like a bolt from the blue.

“Something’s odd. Isn’t it Nisha?” he asked with an intent look.
“Yeah, power-cut dear!” She replied in a rather calm voice.

“Oh baby, you look worried. Come here,” She embraced him in her arms.
“Aww! Feels better sweetheart. Love you so much.”
“Love you too my darling. Sleep tight.”
He went back to bed under her arms with a tiny little smile across his chin, forgetting everything that just happened.
