Chinna chinna kadhai

i

Her everyday life was dictated by the whims and fancies of animate and inanimate beings. Woken by the alarm’s strident shrillness. Meals based on the price of onions and tomatoes. Television dictated by the sticky hands that held the remote. Sleep when she heard the grunt of her husband as he went limp above her.

She couldn’t help but stare. He was big. And black. Clad in a pair of jeans that clung to him intimately. Apart from a smattering of dark curly hair near his wrists his arms were smooth. She wondered if the rest of him was as bare. And blushed.
‘Probably remembering last night’ her husband grinned.

Are we voting?
They're both excellent, but I'll go with the first one because I've never seen a guy with hair only on his wrists and nowhere else on his upper body.
Is that even possible?

Love it! I sort of think of the second one as an extension of the first!
