An elderly couple, Mr. and Mrs. Thompson, had lived in their cozy cottage for decades. They cherished their routine, especially their peaceful evenings. As the clock struck midnight, they nestled into bed, ready to embrace a restful night’s sleep.
Just as they were about to doze off, Mr. Thompson, with a sudden realization, exclaimed, “I forgot to turn off the lights in the greenhouse!” Concerned about wasting electricity, he decided to check on it despite the late hour. Mrs. Thompson, worried but supportive, urged him to be careful.
Slowly, they made their way through the dimly lit hallway to the back door. As Mr. Thompson stepped into the cool night, a sliver of moonlight illuminated their lush garden, where the greenhouse stood at the far end.
Upon reaching the greenhouse, Mr. Thompson peered through the glass and saw the lights still shining brightly. As he turned to leave, he heard hushed voices coming from inside the greenhouse. His heart raced, and he motioned for Mrs. Thompson to stay quiet.
