Few months later –
His point of view-
It was late at night when my phone rang..
I normally work in the study but today i was in the bedroom.
Pie was asleep beside me and dare she wakes up for a phone ring..Never.
She is one heavy sleeper that can sleep even if a plane takes off beside her..
But my son he is a like a cat..a slight noise and he will be up.
I look at my phone to see mom calling..
This late in the night..?
Hope everything is alright..
I pick my son who is just about to let out a loud cry and receive the call walking out of the room..
“Is everything all right..?” I question
“Yea actually i wanted to talk to you .” She said.
“This late..?” I questioned surprised.
“Ofcourse i know you would be up now..”
“Yea i was just working..” i say rocking my son..
“You work too much beta..you need to rest ” she explains.
“Yea maa…its just that in the day i like to spend time with them.” I say..
“Like father..like son …you know when you were born he was so happy that he always had this grin on his face..
He would tell everyone about you..” she says laughing remembering the old days.
“And i thought he never loved me..” i said sighing.
My son had long gone to sleep..
“Beta he has always loved you.”
“Yea i know..” i murmered.
“Anyways i called to tell you that maine mannat mangi sabke liye and now when titli is here..you both are married..and junior is here..i think its complete now.
So i want you all to go and do the pooja at our ancestral temple.”
“Ji mom… Kab jana hain..?” I enquired..
“Beta kal nikalna hai padso ka mahurat acha hain”
“Ji maa..” i say and yawn.
“Beta its almost midnight..you should sleep..” she says.
“Good night mom.” I say before hanging up.
Coming back into the room i lower the air conditioner and place Junior next to Dex..
As soon as i put him down she pulls him in the blanket and i spoon her from behind.
This is a picture perfect moment…
The next morning –
Her point of view –
Tring … Tring.
The alarm goes off and i groan ..
Quickly shutting it off before my kids get up i head to the kitchen to cook breakfast.
Dex walks in minutes later eyes still closed.
“Babe we gotta go to the temple and do the pooja..mom ka phone aya tha..” he says coming over to me and hugging me..
“Okay..you get ready ..i will manage the rest.”
He goes back to the room saying that he is going for a bath..
Minutes later when i walk in i find him asleep.
I know he was up last night so i take junior downstairs to feed him his breakfast.
“Dex..we are running late bacha.” I call out to him before taking junior for his bath.
I dress up junior before going to wake up Dex again..
“Love..” i say kissing his cheek.
“Its 8 bubba ..we are getting late..get up please.”
“Hm..be up before i come out from the bath.”
“Give me also a bath..” he whines.
“Yea chalo..” i say before getting into the bathroom
When he dosen’t appear even after few minutes i call out to him.
“Patidev ji chaliye..”
He walks in his eyes still closed..
“Aaaaaaah..” he screams when i pour cold water on him.
“What the hell was that..?” .
” Sorry bubba but ghee jab sidhi ungli se na nikle toh ungli tedi karni padti hai.” I answer gigling.
“Haan.” I answer giggling ..
I know i am going to be dead meat..if not now then later but surely dead meat..
