Truth, as it is !




She realized that she could no longer hide the truth.

The sooner it was out, the better.

She looked guiltily at him.

He was seated on the sofa, his eyes scanning the newspaper.

The tired lines on his forehead sent waves of ache through her heart.

Nervous, she chewed her lips.

No ,she couldn’t delay it. She had to speak , now.

"Dad", she called.

He looked up at her.

"I'm sorry, dad," she said ,her voice filled with regret.

"What happened ?",  he asked.


Black tea

"You'll have to take black tea; there's no milk",  she said , a faint smile covering her embarrassment.

  8. I thought she had flunked her exams or wanted to introduce her boyfriend but this is something so unexpected. I think her father wouldn't mind drinking black tea. Well-done Sreeja.

  21. As usual a great twist in the end! A suggestion: try writing a story that has a predictable ending. All your fans will be shocked!!!

    Well, if I were her dad, there would be no problem because I normally have black tea. :-)
