Variety is the spice of life.

Albert breathed that dictum.

Thanks to him, Emma too followed suit.

Life had turned one big unpredictable game.

One week it was hiking the mountains.

The other, exploring a 13th century fort.

Yesterday___the two ‘floated’  in the clouds.

Today, it was the sea, and yoga.

“Lovely, isn’t it?”, he’d asked.

The two were watching the sea waves.

And then, “Open this”, I’ll be back”.

She watched his back, slightly bemused.

Now what surprise was this, she wondered.

Picking up the seashell, Emma prised it open.

The letter popped out.

Each alphabet was a dagger.

‘Bye sweetheart, it’s over’.

He, really, did believe in variety.
