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