Closure

She was bored. She picked a nondescript bar, she didn't want to run into anyone.

"Its you", a surprised voice said beside her. It was him. She hadn't seen him in many years.

"What are you doing here?" She asked.

"Work. You?"

"The same."

And they drank. It was almost as before.

The next morning, she woke up with a smile on her face. She hadn't done so in a really long while. It was just like it was before.

"So what now?" he asked.

"Nothing. I love my husband, and I am sure you love your wife. In a few years you will have kids, and you will name your first born after me" She smiled. "I can't do that. The doctor said we will never have kids."

"You can go back to pretending like this never happened?"he asked. "I thought only men could do that!"

"Thats where you are wrong love, don't ever underestimate me"

"I have never done that, you know"

"I know." She said, packing up her purse. "Think of this as closure" and she shut the door behind her.

***
Two months later his friend called him up. "She asked for your number"

He got a call the next day.

"I'm pregnant"

ever heard of a movie called "sila nerangalil sila manidhargal" ? not much of plot similarity, but its an interesting one on a one night stand.

Ramakrishnan R said...

no. No lovers. A one night stand , and the impact on the girl. She does manage to find and meet up with the persons after ages. and they forge a relationship. and imagine, this film was made in 1960s in believe.
