About Him

She left me with nothing but two torn pages
scrawled softly with her sweet, subtle white lies
about him.

I’m back home to cook lunch when I heard my girls’ delighted squeals. I missed hearing them. I never thought I’ll hear their warm giggles again after their dad left us, for no known reason. There’s no farewell nor goodbye. He just stopped coming home.

I quietly went up to sneak a peak and was stunned to see he’s back, my husband. He removed his weird-looking helmet, looked at me with chilling intensity.

“I know where you’ve been,” he said coldly.

I want to run back to my lover’s arms but my husband’s gaze showed escape wouldn’t stand a chance.
