Once they were back home, they sanitized everything and made sure to take bath. In times of the pandemic, they always did this whenever they went out.
In the night, they woke up with a sweat having dreamt of someone sitting lifeless on a chair. Had they done the right thing going out in the middle of a pandemic?
Living in a bubble of uncertainty during the full lockdown due to the pandemic, his idea of utopia was to promise himself that he would pursue his long forgotten passion to paint whenever the lockdown was lifted as he didn’t have all what was required.
