She looked at the wall clock… it was 10:15… it was time but Shekhar had not left for work.

It would come any moment, thought Isha getting worried, today things could get messed up.

With her husband finally going out, she felt relieved, she sat on the couch and looked at the time… it was 10:30…

Like any other day, Isha was waiting for her phone to ring… she always felt good when this call came.

It was 10:35 when the phone rang… “I am impressed Rajeev, you never miss a day, but how did you know my husband was going out late… I almost thought we’ll get caught”, said Isha.

    Aah… Saheb biwi or woh! 😀
    I hope she gets caught! May the other person on the line be her husband by mistake. 😛

    Nicely written piece, Tina. You wrote her panic very well. 🙂
