The Eye Opener

The Eye Opener by Indrajit Garai

The Postman knocks on our door: a registered mail for me.

After waiting for seven months, the document from our notary office has arrived finally. I was leaving for work, but, I put my laptop down, take the deed to my desk, and start checking it page by page. Not that I’m expecting any error, but just in case. This apartment is important for many reasons.

“Is everything alright, Franck?”

I look up. Armelle is standing beside me, worried. I draw her closer and press my check against her bulging belly.

“Yes. Our son can arrive in peace now.”
