Arshi OS – Its the little things that count

Had the idea lingering in my mind.. it stands alone.. one shot, read and tell me your views…
I had initially wrote it thinking of Heart “Barmeen”  Heart
“Arshi” is in the title but you can think of any of your “jodis” in particular and read it accordingly as there werent any names written in the OS itself. 
After a long day at work, he opened the door and inhaled the nice aroma. He immediately smiles forgetting all the tiredness. He dropped his bag on the couch and kicked his shoes off.  He then made his way to the kitchen. He finally saw his wife. She had on a floral strap dress with her hair tied back into a loose ponytail.

He hugged her from behind; she turned to face him and gave him a quick peck on his lips. She then resumed to preparing dinner. He still had his arms around her, yet he made sure he didn’t obstruct what she was doing.

She tilted her head, “Go change.” He released her and pecked her on the cheek,“Okay, I’ll be back soon.” She smiled and took the food dishes to the dining table. He came into the dining room wearing a shorts and a blue Nike t shirt, his favourite colour.

They began eating, they talked about their days, work, and the usual stuff. They finished and they took their dishes to the kitchen.  He sat on the bar stool watching her as she washed the dishes.

“I loved it,” he said. She turned and smiled. “It’s just what I needed, work killed me today.”  “I know, that’s why I did this,” she said while washing her hands. He got down from the stool and walked towards her. He hugged and they just stood there for a while, “Baby, are you okay?”

She looked into his eyes and nodded, “I just, I missed you a lot today.”  “I missed you too,” he said and then led her to the couch, “let’s just relax, talk’ the two of us and spend some time together.” They talked to each other for hours and they both fell asleep on the couch.


She was jolted awake by the sound of a loud thud followed by an “oww.” She looked down to the ground to see him rubbing his head. He had fallen off the couch. She couldn’t contain her laughter. “Why are you laughing? It’s not funny!” he complained.

She continued laughing then suddenly he grabbed her hand and pulled her onto him on the floor. She let out a scream but then continued laughing. He kissed her and then her eyes caught the time, it was past 9. “Oh my god, I’m late” He then glanced at the time and yelled out, “Me too!” He helped her up and they raced to get dressed for work. They were both really late for work.
