“Stop, for the god sake.”
“You have started it.” He said.
“Leave it. “
“Next time, if I found you smoking or came to know that you are lying, I would go to my parent’s house.”
“Don’t give such arguments. Otherwise, I have to start smoking again.”He said.
“What? You want me to go to parent’s home. I am going.” She said.
“Darling, cant I joke with you? I want to change your mood, that is why, I have cracked this joke. Now, please tell me what the special you had made today in Lunch.”
“Nothing special.” She said.
“I must say there is magic in your hands, even simple food made by your hands tastes so nice.”He said.
“Rehene do,ab” She said
By now, Her husband had master the art of hiding. He continued.
She never caught him. Weeks passed. Months passed. Years Passed. Until one bad day, when Saahil was feeling pain in the chest and they went to the Doctor together.
Doctor examined him and called Ritu in private. Doctor told her that he is having the symptoms of cancer. Saahil underwent certain tests and the result came after 2 days. For 2 days, Ritu didn’t talk to Saahil properly. She also didn’t discuss anything about smoking.
2 days later, result came and Saahil was declared as fine. They were going to home happily. Ritu asked him to go for a long drive. He agreed. They parked their car and began walking along the beach. Suddenly, Ritu started crying.
“What happen, Darling?”He asked
“Why had you lied to me for years about smoking?” She said.
Saahil shocked and also started crying. Ritu told him about the Cancer thing. Saahil didn’t say anything. They never talked about smoking after this incidence. Neither, Saahil made any promise any that day.
But, he never smoke after that .
