sometimes it will be fast,
Sometimes it will be slow,
Everybody is trying to catch up the rhythm.

Early morning. The sun started spreading his rays on Earth. Anitha opened her eyes and tried to get up from the bed. Instead she was hugged tightly by her husband Arun who is sleeping next to her with a whisper of saying
' let us sleep some more honey ' in her ears.

Oh no Arun, I have to go, it's Friday I have lot of works to do, the milkman will also be coming soon, anitha said and let out a yawn.

Five minutes please, Arun said and started lingering over her throat by his face with which anitha accepted and hugged back her husband with overwhelmed shyness.

Anitha was studious girl, she managed to enter the engineering college where Arun had been studying third year already.

When arun's parents came to know about their relationship they obviously opposed becoz their family was a well to do one. After all they had big plans for Arun in their mind.

Anitha was very much worried about this issue and Arun was the one who always console her with hiswarm and kind words.

Another worrying thought was, even with their intimate happy married life, she was unable to conceive a baby. They consulted a doctor too. The obstetrician said both were normal in all reports, can wait for another 6 months before putting her on all that powerful hormonal tablets. Anitha let out a shy.

In office, Arun during his teabreak, checked the mails, and wandered in FB , suddenly a notification popped up and told him that today is anitha's birthday.

OMG arun! How come man, you forgot this?
Scolding himself, he dialled anitha instantly.
When anitha picked up the call, Arun said
Hey honey! Sorry dear, I forgot that actually.
Many more happy returns of the day babe ""
Will go out in the evening, be ready.

Oh, thank you Arun, as you wish , I ll be waiting, anitha replied.

That's my girl, gotta go, bye dear, with that Arun ended the call. He knew his wife, she was not a type who is getting mad with these little issues, that's one of the reason why he love her so much.

To keep his promise, Arun got permission around 3' o clock itself, and they have gone out happily. After buying a new silk saree for her, they went to cinema, after that with a delightful dinner, they were returning home in their small ,yet cozy car.

On their way, anitha saw a man lying on the stonebench roadside bleeding. She asked her husband to stop the car. Arun stated that, maybe he was some drunkenman, no need to bother about him. But anitha insisted that, it was in humanitarian if we were not taking him to the hospital.

Helpless, Arun stopped the vehicle, went to the man, who was an adolescent boy with some injuries and almost semiconscious. With the help of anitha, he shifted him to the car, and drove to the nearby hospital.

'Bring him to the casualty,' nurse ordered the attender male, she turned to Arun ,

He was given pop for the fracture and TT analgesics along with a sleeping dose. He would be alright by tomorrow morning and could be discharged by then.

Thank you doctor, Arun said and started leaving.

By the way, it's looking more assault than car accident, how it happened? Doctor asked.

No sir, you have mistaken, I haven't hit him. Arun explained what had happened.

Anyway, you have to give information to the nearby police station, it's a formality, said doctor and left the room.

Arun stood standstill for 2 minutes, and with much of tiredness, he returned to anitha.
Come let's go, I ll drop u in the house, and it's going to be a long night for me.

Who is he? Why am I helping him ?
