She lived for her children. Her two daughters and son. She would do anything to save them from trauma and pain.

In her devotion to them she neglected her husband.

Lately, he had started to come late from office. That gave her more time to make dinner.

Nowadays, he would be often whispering and texting on his mobile outside in the balcony. That spared her from the distraction of talking to him while helping the children with their homework.

However, he seemed more cheerful and bantered with the children. That kept them in a good mood.

Soon, he began going on more frequent overnight official tours. That gave her more time to sort out the children’s rooms.

One day, she opened his briefcase to check if he had repaired her mobile. She found a jewellery box addressed to a pretty looking colleague from his office.

She closed the briefcase. He probably forgot to get the mobile repaired. He must be busy. The gift might be for some project the colleague helped him complete.
