Chapter Summary

The author returned home in an unusually cold day in October. She found that it was unexpectedly warm inside. The kettle was kept on by her husband due to the very fact that the evening was very cold. Her husband did not usually do any housework. She found the kitchen was surprisingly warm on opening the door of the kitchen. She saw a red round thing floating in the darkness. She realized that the red round thing was the kettle after a moment. She found the stainless-steel kettle was red-hot, and it was still on the burning gas hob as if going to melt. She decided to remodel the kitchen with an underfloor heating system. Due to the underfloor heating, it was very warm inside and they had spent the New Year season comfortably. The traumatic image of the red-hot kettle still remained in her mind's eye.
