C for Companionship #AtoZChallenge

‘Where are you Dia? Did you leave office?’ asked Sameer on the cell phone. C

‘I have to test this program and send it to onshore.  Today is the deadline.  I will be working for another hour atleast,’  said Dia from office.   As an afterthought, she added,  ‘Let us order dinner,  it will be too late when I get home.’

‘Don’t worry about dinner.  You focus on your testing.  Be careful.  Don’t make mistakes.  Call me when you reach the station. I will pick you up,’  said Sameer.

Two hours later,  Dia comes home to the aroma of a hot dinner of rotis, dal, rice and vegetables. 

Sameer had to cook again, she winces.

‘Thanks Sameer for making dinner,’ she puts down her laptop and hugs Sameer.

‘Dia, do I thank you for cooking food anytime?  You don’t have to feel guilty.  Remember, behind every successful  IT program,  there is an equally hard-working spouse.’

***This has been written for the A to Z Challenge 2015. My theme is A to Z in the life of Dia and Sameer, a geek and non-geek couple.  Short stories on their approach to daily life.  Do you know people like them?  Do share the stories with me. ***
