Demanding jobs and schedules had left them both tired and sapped. They had become one of those weekend couples that see each other when they meet other friends and put up a façade of a happy marriage. There was not anything outwardly wrong with their relationship but there was a tinge of hidden resentment that perhaps is there in a lot of marriages, but can be addressed if spoken about. There were times when they would complain about each other’s lack of empathy or understanding or lack of cooperation and adjustment, but then it would end at complaining. There would be a few days of no talking, there would be difficulties in getting by and then they would give up mostly out of practicality of living in a depressingly quiet house.
This continued till they went to the couple dance session organized by their apartment society.
It was new year’s eve and some housewives from the apartment complex decided that couples should get to dance together in a synchronized way. Many people objected citing lack of time but then it was overruled and decided that this much little time can be made by all couples if not for each other then for the sake of common fun. So these two agreed too.
On the day of the dance class, most couples were there in their work-out clothes looking embarrassed and awkward. They were making jokes to lighten the situation. These two also cracked some inane jokes to show each other that they were handling it very well.
When the class started, the instructor told them to hold each other and just sway to the music. For the first few minutes it seemed really awkward and unnatural. Then they don’t know what happened. Holding each other closely with beautiful music playing in the background, they suddenly felt something changing. The instructor was relaying some instructions in the background and these two just had to follow.
“Hold each other’s shoulder and turn around.”
“Touch your partner’s cheek and smile.”
“Hold your wife’s waist and twirl her.”
Simple instructions like this seemed to have such drastic impacts on their intimacy that by the time they reached home that day they were wondering if they really knew the person they were spending all these years with? Sometimes a simple touch is all it takes in rekindling the spark by bringing back the touch in a passionate relationship!
