andhu walked holding her hands. Hrishitha was smiling outwardly; but her heart was racing.
Last one year had been eventful. Her new boss, Venkat – slightly younger to her, tall and athletic; a contrast to Nadhu who was nine years older, bald and potbellied. Luncheons followed, dinners and parties happened, love bloomed and finally, lust overtook until pregnancy got confirmed. Hrishitha was terrified.
“Hrish, I will father your baby”, Nandhu suddenly declared. Hrishitha was taken aback. How did he know that she was pregnant? How did he know he is not the father?
“I always knew that you were having affair with your boss. I didn’t stop you because I can never give you what he gave. And I still love you”, he said.
Tears rolled down her cheeks – of guilt or gratitude, she didn’t know.
