David woke up to a heavy head. He couldn’t focus. His nausea was at extreme. He got up and managed to reach the Bathroom. The warm water on his body seemed to be giving him some strength. Wiping out his face, suddenly he was reminded that today his girlfriend’s parents were to come for the brunch. A look at the watch and panic struck him. It was already 11 o’Clock. He went out to the living room. The room looked pretty cleaned up then usual with fresh flowers in the pot. In the kitchen he saw Ron working on some dish.
He went to him and looked at the pot. It was Pasta, wonderfully smelling and almost done. He asked him, “Is anybody going to visit you today?”. Ron replied with a mischievous smile, “Yes, my roommate’s special guests!”. David was surprised. He gave a bright smile of relief and gratitude and hugged Ron instantly. To Ron’s amazement, the hug gave him a sort of energy supply, a positiveness flowing into his body. Ron suddenly started feeling happier. A sense of achievement bloomed inside him. And an enlightening smile spread on his face. He was thinking, ‘How simple it is to earn happiness! As simple as Empathy!’.
