Since the last fortnight, almost every evening cicak a will ask cicak b the same old question, “What’s for dinner?” And the reply seemed forever be the same, “Mosquitoes.”

My spines started to chill. I couldn’t concentrate on the telly anymore. I went to the sliding door and looked behind the curtains.

Two domestic lizards were feasting on a dragonfly.
