Romantic Getaway

After dinner, Jeh proposed, “Let’s go for a walk!”

Lea agreed. Jeh loved trekking and camping, and had booked an adventure stay in the woods. Though Lea was not much convinced, she went along with his plan. The idea of the whole getaway was to be together, the place was immaterial.

Hand in hand, they started walking on the dirt track. After a while, a pack of street dogs followed them.

“Jeh, do something, you know I am scared of dogs,” Lea appealed.

Jeh shooed the dogs, but the dogs unfazed continued walking with them.

After a while, Jeh realised they had missed a turn. They should have reached their hotel long ago. He took out his phone and realised the phone was dead.

“Great and you told me not to carry my phone,” Lea accused her husband.

“Because you keep on looking at the phone all the time,” Jeh defended.

“So, now what? How do we reach the hotel?”

Jeh shrugged.

“My feet are killing me,” Lea complained.

“Who wears heels on a holiday in the country?” Jeh barked.

“Who chose to be on a holiday in the country in the first place?” Lea couldn’t have missed an opportunity to tell him that.

“So much for a romantic getaway!” Jeh muttered.

    No getaway is romantic with a mobile.. pity they were stuck because of not carrying the mobile. It has become a necessary evil.

  2. Abhijit Ray says:

    Nice story. Since Jeh had suggested the walk, he should have been better prepared and much more patient.

  3. Gosh … a flashlight and a full charge would’ve been nice especially since Jeh didn’t
    want her to bring her phone. I would be afraid of wild dogs too. Well … I’m sure they worked it out.
    No sense in ruing a weekend because of a missed turn. : )
    Thank you for the photo prompt this week. It’s a terrific photograph.
