“Happy Anniversary, Dear!!” said Neeta aunty, a former neighbor to Ritu on phone.
“Hmm..” replied Ritu.
“What happened? You’re fine, nah??”
“No!! You’re not sounding good. What’s the matter? Your mother was also not responding to my call from last Diwali. Is everything alright?”
Then she realized that she could no longer hide the truth & said, “I’m at mom’s place. I’ve filed a case for divorce. I was with him only for 3 months. He is so strange, hot-headed & expert in making mountains out of a molehill. The crazy fact is, the one with whom I thought I’d be sharing everything is the one whom I was frightened to even.. talk!”
“Ohh, I’m so sorry.”
“No problem, Aunty! You didn’t know it.”
