Both were lying down on the grass. It was their usual saturday routine; get up late and explore some unknown place. Today they chose an abandoned spot in some remote corner of a far off village. They liked hanging out at a place where there was no crowd. Isolation was their respite after hectic week at work.

They had been married for five years. Most of their interests were similar, although not the same. Hanging out in remote places away from the crowd was what they enjoyed the most. Being in the lap of nature where there was hardly, or no one to disturb was the place they admired. They would sit for hours, doing nothing, hand in hand, or read a book. Today they chose to sit on the green carpet of the meadow. Sun was at its afternoon peak, but that didn’t deter them. They didn’t want to miss being alone since they would be busy for next few weeks with their house decoration. They had planned to revamp their tiny home.

They sat under the shade of a huge tree. She was reading the latest novel which was the buzz of the reading community. He was slouched with his head covered with his hat, one hand lazily playing with the stem of the water bottle.

A light breeze blew. Everything was silent. Only the twitter of a bird above on the tree could be heard. She placed the book on the ground and looked up. The bird was in its own world. She didn’t recognise the tiny bird, neither did he when she asked him about it. The color was bright red. This is what attracted her about nature. Seen and unseen creatures going about their own business, long and short grass, tiny and huge plants and trees, the chirp of birds, sound of water flowing. All this energized the mind so that a new week began with fresh vigour.

She picked the book again and peeped at the bird. Its twitter continued. She settled to read again while the bird tweeted.
