Drama in real life
As he stepped inside, he found the house in a mess, soiled utensils lying near the floor, unwashed clothes lying in the corner, television was turned on and there was no human in sight. He instantly called his wife.
He heard the phone ring in the adjacent room which was closed. His feet froze and his mind worked in different directions and panicked. What would have happened? Is his wife safe or not.
Nervously he opened the door and expected to see the worst.
His wife was curled in a blanket and her face turned towards the wall. He slowly went near her and touched her.
Startled his wife turned towards him. Her eyes were blood red. She had her earphones on and she had her phone on her hand.
What happened to you? Are you ok? His voice choked as he asked her.
She removed her earphones and sat up on the bed and with a tensed tone she said "oh why did you disturb me now. I was almost in the end of this episode"
Then it dawned on him that his wife has been binge watching a KDRAMA (Korean drama series) and has been oblivious of everything around her!
Kdramas have slowly entered the entertainment industry and have kept viewers glued to them, his friend had mentioned but he had no clue that his wife was addicted to it.
He heaved a sigh of relief. He hugged her and told her to finish her series and then come out. He came out of her room started cleaning the place with a smile on his lips. I have to spend more time with her and wean her from my rival, the kdrama, he thought.
