Cheating

Rich and handsome! What a combination!

“If only…” A fleeting thought; enough to make her feel guilty.

She turned and asked her husband, “On seeing a rich and attractive guy, if I thought ‘if only…’ is that cheating?”

“Of course not,” he replied.

Relief swept over her.

What’s the point in saying yes, he thought.

Wrote this '55 words story' for a contest. Got short-listed; but didn't get any prize. :-)

good one!

"what is the point!" - is very insightful.

Is this something like a 'mini-saga' competition or something? - A mini saga is a story told in exactly 50 words. Not 49 or 51 but exactly 50

That was a nice post Bindhu.

Thanks for the comments. My mother cooks aalo ka paratha and it comes to be like the punjabi one. She always say "experience matter".
