Wife : Honey are u okay?
Dad: I’m fine!
(Wife prepares breakfast but Dad refused to eat.)
Tilly: Mum it’s like daddy is sick, call the Doctor.

Dad: Tilly baby! Tilly baby!! he called out.
Tilly: Yes daddy.
Dad: how are u?
Tilly: I’m fine daddy but I know u are sick. U are not happy, I told mum to call the doctor for you ok
Dad: smiles, picks up Tilly and taps her at the back, saying I’m fine my dear. I don’t need a doctor OK.
Tilly: OK daddy then smile for me
(Wife gets closer and joins the conversation.)
Wife: Tilly, how come you and dad are both smiling , what are u talking about.
Dad: We are talking about my health.
Wife: that reminds me, honey, we need to talk.
Dad: About what?
Wife: I think we should go inside.
Dad: Alright then. (Tilly, go watch TV in the hall I’ll be with u soon OK.)
Tilly: OK daddy
(Wife and Dad begin the conversation. )
Wife: Honey, I’ve realised you have been behaving weird since yesterday after you abandoned my food on the dining table. What’s the problem? Have I done anything wrong?
Dad: Hmmm, I’m sorry dear. It’s just about the lockdown and how I’ve been idle doing nothing. It’s getting me boring.
Wife: Is that enough reason to abandon my food? Honey the lockdown is affecting us all but you shouldn’t make me feel I caused it by abandoning my food and acting weird towards me. You refused me of the usual good morning peck on the bed this morning, what about that?
Dad: I’m sorry love. It won’t happen again.
Wife: Honey, This is the time you got to spend with your family, I’ve always been all alone with Tilly whenever you leave this house for work. I’ve missed you and this is the time I have you, please make this moment lovely for me.
Dad: I understand babe, sorry for my actions .
(Wife’s phone rings.)
Wife picks. Wife: can I call u back please? On phone: I miss u dear pls do call me when u are done with whatever you doing ok.
Wife: OK bye.
Dad: who was that?
Wife: Colleague from work.
Dad: Alright. So as I was saying, I’m sorry for everything OK.
Wife: OK dear. You still owe me that peck
Dad: Smiles and pecks her on the forehead as he whispers I love you to his wife.
Later that day, mum was in the kitchen, her phone was on a charge in the hall then a text came in.
It reads *” hello baby, I know he was around that’s why u couldn’t speak to me, I’m sure he has always been around you that’s why we can’t talk, but I still think about you all night. Our last meeting was a blast. How I wish this pandemic is over so you ride me again like a polo horse. Take care baby, and don’t let him enjoy it all alone it’s mine too bye’*
(Dad takes a shot of it with phone and sits to watch TV. )
(Tilly goes to the kitchen. )
Wife: where is dad
Tilly: He is watching TV in the hall.
Wife: Go get me my phone dear, it’s on charge in the hall.
(Tilly brought the phone and mum saw the text. )
Dad: Honey, have I done anything wrong that you didn’t tell me?
Wife: No honey.
Dad: Are u sure? I wanna apologize if I have.
Wife: Come on honey, you have done nothing against me, what I wasn’t happy about, we resolved that in the morning. I’m cool now.
Dad: Okay babe. But don’t forget I love u.
Wife: I love u too.
(Moments later dad went out to have some fresh air outside.
Wife makes call with the number that texted her in the noon. Tilly hears part of it and goes out to ask the meaning of statement from dad. )
Tilly: Dad, what is the meaning of banging, and I lost my period?
Dad: Shocked, where did u hear those words?
Tilly: Mum was telling someone on her phone so I want to know the meaning.
Dad: They mean nothing my dear, they are words you will understand when u grow okay??
Tilly: Okay daddy.
