“How long does it take to make a cup of tea?”
“It’s ready” She came in with hurried steps and headed to pick up her bag.
“Tea takes fifteen minutes. Lunch might take a day or even two”
“I don’t have time for this. I am already late for office”
“Yeah. Now boast yourself. You are the breadwinner for this house”
“Well, who else is bringing in the money?”
“Of course, it’s you and that lets you off the hook for killing my baby.”
“Why you have to do this every day? I had a miscarriage and the probable reason was the stress I go through.”
“Me saying the truth gives you stress, sleeping with your boss must be relieving it”
She froze. She had taken abuses, fights, everything just to save her marriage. But today, he crossed all the boundaries. This was the man she fell in love with. Tears welled up in her eyes.
Her phone rang. Visibility was blurred due to tears. She wiped her tears and noticed there was tea all over the stove. She turned off the flame, but didn’t bother to clean.
She picked up the phone and agreed to meet her husband.
“To get over something, you need to put a closure to it. Pretending it never happened, just doesn’t work” She kept on telling herself.
