2 Short Stories: EarPhones, Cough Syrup & Prank
It was 2:00 am in night. She gulped almost a bottle of cough syrup and went to her bed. She was restless with her cold and seems sleeps evaded her. She plugged in her earphone and started listening her favorite numbers. Her head was dizzying and soon she went in a deep slumber. Morning, they called her to get ready for school but she didn't wake. It must be another prank to skip the school again, they thought.
The man diluted few spoon of cough syrup in a glass with 1/3rd of water. He went to his wife who was listening old songs on her Walkman. He went near her and took off her ear phone and pretended having drunk rat poison. She looked at him, screamed in fear and fainted on the floor. He was astonished on her reaction and felt guilty on his act. He threw his glass and went down on his knees, explaining his act. He didn't realized that his simple joke could have such an impact on his wife. He took her to bed and tried waking her up. He even massaged her feet and hands to wake her up. He was almost in tears when she half opened her eyes and winked at him. So you think only you can play a prank? She said smiling naughtily towards him.
