There are these couples…who often fight …at least they argue so much and that makes one feel they always fight. But at the same time they love each other so madly…! It was in the afternoon when the door knocked and she opened the door…it was hubby who had come to have lunch…just because it gives him an opportunity to be with his wife…(how sweet)!
I hold it true, whate’er befall;
I feel it, when I sorrow most;
‘Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.
~ Alfred Tennyson
He just goes in the kitchen to grab the food and asking his wife if he can take out some food for her too. She quietly says no as she had a late breakfast. He eats while his wife sits beside…and they converse …something happens and they start arguing!
The wife feels she hates to meet the boss in her hubby and hubby doesn’t realize if that happens sometimes accidentally, both argue and hubby leaves the home saying…I will not come hence for lunch …as I only come for you!
This makes the wife feel guilty…but still she stands on her point that- he should be ‘hubby’ when he enters the home. (That’s not wrong either isn’t it?)

Well…its evening and there’s no phone calls usually it would have been crossed at least the maximum 5 calls…today wife thought he is angry so am I!
Wife tries to cook something special for hubby and around 7.30 p.m. she gets a call…she thinks it’s the usual call when hubby gets out of work…so she picked it happily just to hear that, “I will be a bit late today!”
Puts the wife off and she just says ‘sure’! And disconnected the call.
Life is a quest and love a quarrel …
She is angry now but not for the fight but for her hubby not coming to home on usual time. She was eagerly waiting for his arrival so that she can surprise him with her cooking! However, she decided to make herself busy by reading a book and show hubby how she is not bothered by his coming late from work!

The time on the clock is 9.15 p.m. Hubby opens the door with the keys and gets in the home without giving a look at her. She also turns her back to show how engrossed she is in the book. The moment hubby comes after he freshens up in the room, she immediately gets off to her room…hubby asks where are you going and she says..’Am coming, in a minute!’
She goes upstairs in her room and just to realize hubby is following her. She quickly changes and gets back on the stairs and the moment both look at each other a smile spreads across their face…the eyes speaking to each other as how much they waited to be together!
When love beckons to you follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions
May wound you.
And when he speaks to you believe in him,
Though his voice may shatter your dreams
As the north wind lays waste the garden.
For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you.
Even as he is for your growth So is he for your pruning.
~ Khalil Gibran
The whole story tells us how much does it takes to make up :D…just a smile…or that care and desperation to talk to each other…I think such fights should be welcomed as it brings them together isn’t it?
Why love if losing hurts so much? We love to know that we are not alone.
My thought for them is fight so much till it brings you more and more close to each other…but not the fight that will take you away from each other!
