It was such a petty issue, she thought retrospectively.

But the war of words that they had exchanged, indicated otherwise.

His words hurt her, while her attitude saddened him.

She sat huddled in a corner, as he sulked.

The tension in the room was so thick that one could almost cut it with a knife.

She was keen on ending the drama but wouldn’t take the first step.

Suddenly she felt his arms around her.

He said after a while, “It does feel like home, doesn’t it?”

She just hugged him a bit closer and held him a bit longer.

  1. That is so true Shilpa. So many married couples go through the first half of the story, if only all those couples would also go through the second half of the story too. That being said, a hug from a loved one indeed feels like home.

    • True that… if both the steps are followed we’d have a lot of happy and healthy relationships! True, there’s nothing as comforting and as warm as a hug. 🙂

  2. Every home witnesses so many ups and downs but the love and understanding between the couple is what keeps them together. Lovely post.

    • Exactly. Every relationship has its highs and lows, what truly matters is how you get through those highs and lows together! Thanks Sulekha 🙂

  3. Words, words, words! That’s why they say, these words can make or break relationships….
    very true…that small little step bridges all the distances…loved reading it 🙂

  4. You capture the little moments of life and coherently construct them in few words. You are the undisputed queen of this art. Lovely again, sounds cliched on your comment form, but i must say it. Shilpa, you are the undisputed queen of drabble and 55ers.

    • Aww! You are toooo kind, Asha! I believe, I still have a long way to go but thanks for your support and confidence. It means a lot! Hugs and ♥

    • Oh yes, they will. A relationship is not just about holding hands while you understand each other. It’s also having lots of misunderstandings and still not leaving each other’s hands. 🙂
      Thanks Sreeja 🙂
