The day passed and the clock struck 10 at night. Suddenly the doorbell rang.
Karl who just made the kids sleep in bed after narrating them the bedtime story closed the door with utmost care and came to attend the doorbell.
It was Marla. Karl was relieved to see her face. He hugged her at the entrance and he remained in her arms speaking nothing.

He wanted to apologize for everything and wanted to make amends. His tears broke all the barriers , he had laid on his thoughts and feelings. He could not say anything.
