Jack and Jill # 16


Jack: You manage to spur a fight with me out of nothing. Great!

Jill: Oh! Now, I am the one who started it?!

Jack: Of course.

Jill: And that too out of nothing?

Jack: Of course. Who fights for sleeping on a particular side of the bed?

Jill: Why don’t you give it up if it is not a big deal?

Jack: I can’t. That is my side.

Jill: *shrugs*

Jack: Anyway, I am tired and sleepy. Good night.

Jill: Hunh! Tell me something new.

Jack: Where is my pillow and blanket?

Jill: *smirks*

Jack: Where is it?

Jill: In the hall. On the sofa.


Sharing the Footprints

Sharing the Footprints

Cuddling her solitude, as she walked down the boulevard garnished with yellowish orange leaves and milky white flowers, flourished trees bowed from each side of the walkway and stretched their souls out to kiss at the top in the middle, right above her head.

While streaks of sunshine made their way through the dense leaves forming a golden work of art in the green backdrop, she sneaked the bars of sunshine with flickering eyelids.

Her feet quietly crushed the freshly dropped flower. Still drizzly owing to the morning dew, the flower happily surrendered under her feet for the striking beauty that she was, on the whole and at the soul.

But, she still missed something. Him. The softest of the leaves and the blossomed flowers could not tickle her feet enough as her mind wandered down the memory lanes… Continue reading “Sharing the Footprints”

Jill: You needed a new towel, right?

Jack: Yes. Why?

Jill: I got you one.

Jack: Oh! What would I do without you, honey?

Jill: Ta-daaa!!! *exhibits like a salesgirl*

Jack: This one? For me? *frowns*

Jill: Yes. Nice, no? See how soft it is.

Jack: Yes, but…

Jill: But, what?

Jack: It is Pink!!!

Jill: I know!! I love pink. Isn’t it pretty? *lit up eyes*

Jack: It is. *conspires* But I want You to have this one.

Jill: Why?

Jack: *evil* Umm… because it is as pretty as you are.

Jill: Awww!!! Will you let me have this one? Really?

Jack: Sure. Any sacrifice for you, my love.

Jill: Thanks. *kisses* But what about yours?

Jack: Don’t worry. I will buy another. White one, may be?

Jill: Which one?

Jack: Any one.

Jill: Come on. At least, suggest.

Jack: Any one. You pick.

Jill: Romantic Comedy?

Jack: Ok.

Jill: Or Action Thriller?

Jack: Ok.

Jill: What Ok? Are you even listening to me?

Jack: Book any movie, sweetie. Whichever you like.

Jill: How come you don’t have any preference for movies?

Jack: Do you think I’m going with you to watch the movie? *winks*


Bits of Us

“Good morning, sweetheart. Happy Anniversary.” she said hugging him from behind, leaning onto him.

“Anniversary?” he looked up from the newspaper.

“You forgot, didn’t you?” her smile narrowed and so did her eyebrows.

“Our anniversary is not until next two months, honey.” He was ultra-cautious of remembering their marriage anniversary ever since he forgot it once and paid the price.

“Today is our First-Date anniversary.” She said.

It was ironic how what she nursed in obvious ways, he thought of as something obviously not to care for.

She fumed to the kitchen. Continue reading “Bits of Us”

Jill: I’m not going to the party tonight.

Jack: We must go. Or my boss would be mad. You know him.

Jill: I don’t care. Your corporate parties are big yawns.

Jack: We’ll go, pretend enjoying and leave in a bit.

Jill: Jack, No is spelled N and O.

Jack: Ok. Actually, not going would spare us from a lot even beyond tonight.

Jill: What do you mean?

Jack: This would even spare you from planning our Europe trip.

Jill: Hunh?! *panics* Why?

Jack: I am ditching the party that he is hosting.

Jill: So?

Jack: For the trip, I’m counting on the bonus that boss would sanction; or not.

Jill: Umm, what should I wear for the party tonight? Red or Black?

Jill: Hey, check out the newspaper. There is 60% off on women’s apparels.

Jack: You must be kidding. Sixty percent??? Show me.

Jill: Yeah! Isn’t that amazing?

Jack: So much discount would turn a saree into a bikini. *giggles*

Jill: I am off to shopping while you cuddle your stupid jokes.

Jack: Wait. Check out this little son of a spoilsport.

Jill: Who? Show me?

Jack: The teeny tiny *Conditions Apply at the bottom corner.

Jill: Oh, the discount applies only on purchases worth 20 thousand and more.

Jack: You can thank me for saving you some time.

Jill: Or…Thank you for setting me a target. See you later, honey. Bye Bye.

Jack: Nooo!!! Wait!!! *cries*


Kiss Me Here

It was a lazy Sunday afternoon for him until the doorbell rang. She had returned from an hour long shopping; it was a shopping of a different kind though.

She walked straight to the bedroom; he followed her.

She plucked the lower end of the shopping bag and toppled it on the study table at one go.

A volcano erupted. Continue reading “Kiss Me Here”

Jill: Hey, do you remember my friend Nancy?

Jack: Oh, Yeah!!! I remember….. Nancy. *blushes*

Jill: *stares* Anyway. She told me there is a dance competition.

Jack: So?

Jill: So, I think we should participate. It is a couple salsa competition.

Jack: *laughs* You must be kidding, right?

Jill: No.

Jack: Dance? Me? Don’t you know me at all or what?

Jill: Come on. It would be fun.

Jack: Salsa and I are like Dogs and I. We just don’t mingle.

Jill: You can at least try.

Jack: Exempt me. We’ll do it when there is a competition for my dance form.

Jill: Your dance form? Which is that?

Jack: Swinging Hands-Twisted Face-Off balanced Legs- Tilted Head
