Unfaithfully Yours

Running away together had not been an easy decision, but they didn’t have a choice. His wife had started suspecting them, and their life could be destroyed any day now.

His eyes teared up as his thoughts turned dark with despair. But then, someone patted him on the back. He turned swiftly.

“Let’s go,” she said breezily, “Hope you’ve checked the suitcase again. All the money from our last robbery is in there, right Dad?”

    You twisted multiple expectations, Anurag! I actually felt more empathy for him as I realized it was his daughter he was hoping would show up and I thought, aw, how sweet — father-daughter robbers!
