Again a usual day. He liked it the way it was in the past. She was standing near the stove. He was fidgeting with the channels on this second-hand TV. But just for a moment his heart skipped a beat.
He jumped back to the channel he just left.
An animated character with a heroic mask and green eye. His flashy robe was tuning the wind around him. His eyes broadened.
After a second he asked in a cherished way,
“Darling what do you think about superheros?”.
She just had put curry in the pan,the oil jumped at her but she wasn’t hurt. She thanked god with the deep breath and turned toward him.
“What do you mean what I think about superheroes?” she wasn’t expecting this question from a 26 year old guy.
“Just tell na,do you like them?”, he had just turned 6 year old. At least his wife thought that.
“Yes I like them”, she giggled.
“More than me?”, he was blank.
She gave him a stare. Jealous of a TV cartoon, what happened to him. But this was cute.
“No my hubby is my superhero. You may not have superpowers but you have a heart that belongs to me, only me. No one can love me like you do.”.
She came closer. Close enough to feel the breath.
“And I love you for that.”, she said pulling his cheek. He was numb just looking at her.
She turned to dining table saying,”Now let’s eat, dinner is ready.”
He smiled and looked at the pan in the kitchen. It moved a little. He was happy that he left his past life of superhero. He could save his love from hot oil at least. Her love is enough, more than his powers can give him.
He jumped towards dining table to have the delicious food. Being normal human have its perk, food and love!
