A lifetime

I don’t know! – she shouts.
He looks at her.
She stares back.
Silence.
A drop of sweat falls to the ground.
The hair on her neck starts to stand up.
Still. Tthey glance at each other.
Nobody moves.
Her finger, she lifts it
and touches his hand.
He shrinks back for a second,
but then he cannot resist.
Seventy years of life have they shared,
and they just cannot stay mad at each other for long.
