Hidden truth


Tring...Tring, the phone rang.

"Hello."  Naina says.

"Happy marriage anniversary!" Meera is saying gleefully.

"Oh, thank you so much Meera!"

"So you've completed ten blissful years uh! You guys make a perfect couple. Congratulations! Be happy like this always." Meera says.  "Where's Vivek?" She asks.

Naina  hands the phone to her husband. He talks merrily for a minute then disconnects the call. They both look at each other for a brief moment. Then, 'the perfect couple', without wishing each other, head towards different directions.
