In no time they formed a plan of action, figured out the exact locations from where the lights came and stormed into one of the apartments. They were met with an astonished young chap at the door, who was taken aback with this sudden intrusion in his house. They held him with his hands tied at his back, and demanded an explanation from him about the light flashing from his room. Was it some kind of signal he was giving out to his partners in crime?
“Oh that?! That was for my girl friend who lives across the road!” he exclaimed
“Oh yeah…you think we’re gonna buy that?!”
“We had a fight this evening. And she wasn’t answering my calls. So I flashed my night-lamp…just so that she notices that I was not getting sleep because I was upset for the tiff we had. We normally do that at nights to grab each other’s attention,” he tried explaining.
The constable found the story quite sketchy and dubious to believe. It was just not that simple. He had to get to the root of this matter. So next, they visited the building opposite with the young guy in tow to verify if what he was saying was really the truth. The door was answered after a long wait. She was scared of opening the door, but when she saw him from the peep-hole accompanied with police men, she panicked and opened the door. What could he have done?
When she was questioned, about the lights, she blushed and refused to answer. It was only when the constable pressed horrifying accusations on them about planning some kind of terrorist attacks that she blurted out in panic, “Oh but we were only making up! We fought this evening. But when I noticed that he was up and sleepless, flashing his night-lamp, I could see that he was missing me. So I replied back to indicate that I missed him too by flashing my night-lamp too. But he went on doing so. How could I not have responded to that?” she asked a tad innocently, looking into her beau’s eyes soulfully.
The constable had lost it completely by then. He shook his head in exasperation. Why the hell couldn’t they have just called each other or walked into each other’s houses?! What a waste of precious time! The policemen stormed out of the house in a huff leaving the modern day Romeo and Juliet to make up for whatever the flashing lights had not been able to make up for them.
