Whose fault is it anyway?

Wife

Whatever happened to all the apologies you had asked for last time when you had committed the same mistake?

If you have the slightest of shame left in you, then grow some balls and stop ruining the lives of everyone you meet. You don’t have feelings for me, understandable, but at least pretend to care for your child. She is just 12 and asks me if she has done anything wrong and that’s why you are angry with the poor child.

Wish I could tell her that your dad is interested in this other woman who gives him sexual pleasure and who in return receives money to start her boutique.

Mistress

Since his wife tortures him, poor guy needs a different avenue to seek love. Love has left me bereft too. Yeah he might be a decade elder to me, but that is fine. I too need a man for my sexual desires. He is experienced and unhappy; I am lonely and also in need of livelihood. I think by the time his promise of leaving his wife will be fulfilled, I too will have a boutique of my own and both of us will then be living happily ever after.

Him

I may have made a mistake by having another mistress. She is just as annoying once you get to know her. There is no question of going back to my wife. Even if I apologize and try and get back, things will not be the same anyway. She will not love me anymore and neither will anyone look up to me in her family. I can probably continue like this. After all in this modern world; I should be able to do whatever I want as long as I am able to support my family.

    Good one dear life is a trap for everyone and this trap is the thought process. Your short story is an attempt to provoke thought by leaving open ended thought . Reader like me start thinking and build own story in thought. That’s really great . A perfect short story

    I can very well relate to this…. the fault is definitely of the man… life gives u lot of options…there is no end to it… we need to learn n stay contended with what we have… you need a very strong will power n values to be loyal. Yes, at times it might be really difficult for d man to stay with his wife,but in dat case he needs to first divorce her n then look for options or move ahead….!!! Everyone has d right to live life there way, just because we love them and are loyal to them, we can’t force them to do d same!!! And I believe in one thing. .. Once a cheater always a cheater. … such men never change. … NEVER!!!
