Interesting topic Imagination!
Almost 5 years back.
While watching one of her favorite TV programs, for some reason she was getting hyper and worried. It was only she and her four-year daughter at home around 10:30 PM. She was eagerly waiting for her husband to come back from a superstore, where he went for grocery shopping. She refused to join due to cramps and pain in her legs, she was in her 6th month of pregnancy. She needed to rest, but now she was feeling uncomfortable, as it took him so long. She looked at the clock and it was time for their favorite TV dance reality show. She was expecting he will be back soon and they can watch the program together and have food. but as the time passed and mobile didn’t reach her husband, her anxiety increased. Frequently, she was on her porch and inside (back and forth) to check on her daughter, or in front of God. All her senses were alert to hear the sound of his husband’s car or a phone call. Restlessness was growing in absence of these. Her head was banging with questions, What happened to him? Is he OK? Why is he not back, it’s been more than three hours just for grocery shopping? Her panic was increasing with every negative imagination of some adversity has happened to him. Oh, she doesn’t know driving!
Soon all the sounds were getting muted, the night was getting darker. As the time was passing her concern was increasing. The grocery store was not very close, but will it be a good idea to take a four-year-old girl with her at 11 p.m. when she is 6 months pregnant and not very comfortable. She was feeling discomfort in her womb, due to this stress.
Can you imagine what would have happened next? I leave it to your imagination, please leave a comment and share what would happen next? Your comment will make my day, Thank you 🙂
With so much of confusion and distress, she decided to call her neighbor Mrs. V. She asked Mrs. V to please help her and check if her husband is in some trouble. Mrs. V. consoled her and told that she will ask her husband to check. Mr. V immediately took his car and went to check on him. In few minutes she got a call from Mr. V’s phone and she took a sigh of relief, it was her husband on that side. He was still in the queue for billing. It was a Saturday and a busy grocery store, with long queues.
In some time when he came back, she hugged her and thanked God, that he is fine! In all this, her husband with not much of the clue what has happened was asking her why did she send Mr. V in search of him. And she smiled with a puzzled look. It was all her imagination!
