Legacy of lies
The phone rang and upon receiving I heard a soft soothing sound of a lady.
"Hello James, what are your plans for today? Are we still going out for dinner?" She asked confidently.
"Excuse me, James is not here at the moment." I answered.
"Do you mind leaving the message to me and I'll inform h.......?" I continued.
Even before I was through with my sentence she hanged the phone. I did not mind as I thought it was the usual routine of my husband to go out for dinner with his work mates, as sometimes he took himself with me officially. Therefore I could not rush to judge the situation that fast.

After two days as I was cleaning the house an arranging everything in its place, the phone alerted for a received message and as usual I took the phone to check out what was it for as it could be urgent and James was fast asleep after a 'long night he had at work'.

I could not believe this, I could not comprehend what it meant by that. I tried to come my self down but my tears just rolled down unintentionally.
