Every morning of his starts with a 90s playlist, followed by the day’s news in the mobile, a walk in the park completed with a health drink at completion of the morning routine. For her it starts with the grandchildren, preparing them morning milk followed by the breakfast.
For the couple every vacation was blissful as they had their grandchildren with them to play while their children (2 children and their spouses) were busy, even on vacations.
Suddenly one day on the vacations this elderly couple went missing the previous evening and the next morning.
Their children were tensed, went in search of them, but couldn’t find them the whole night and the next morning they came home around 11am.
The toddlers went running towards them and hugged them in joy to see them back. But not their children. The young couples were staring and started asking questions on their vanishing.
The elderly couple was silent, the old man took out some bags from the car and came in, gathered all in the living room and handed each one a bag. The grandchildren were curious and opened it, “New Dress” they were jumping in joy hugging the elderly couple. One of the toddler’s father questioned the old man “What is this? You people went missing yesterday and are coming home today that too with presents? What are you thinking of yourselves in this age?”
The old woman started to explain but the old man stopped her. Still the lady told “He told we had to shop, after that he took me out for dinner, we stayed in a hotel, today morning went to temple and came straight home!!”
“Straight home??” Asked their daughter in law.
The young couples were confused and a silence was maintained for a few minutes. And when they again started to ask the old man said “I took her on a Date Night” , held his wife’s hand, kissed her hand while she was shy and told their children “Today’s actually a very special day for us. It’s our fifty-seventh wedding anniversary.”
(After that they wished them and scolded for showing attitude of a newly married but with love).
Age doesn’t matter to experience love and adventure in life
