Amit was thinking about talking to Jyoti about his feeling. He knew it was foolish, she was older than him by 12 years, she was married and she had children, but still he can’t denying the fact that he was attracted to her and liked her a lot. He knew there was a pretty good chance that she would slap him, but at some level he was aware that Jyoti too liked him and found him attractive. He turned to Jyoti and said….
Amit :: “I know you have to go home and look after your children, but is it possible for us to go out for dinner sometime?”
As Jyoti looked at him, she knew that agreeing to dinner would mean taking things to the next level. As naive as she was, even she knew that saying yes to dinner means that she was ready for things to change between them……
Jyoti :: “Can I think about it?”
Amit was disappointed but agreed…. That evening Jyoti was completely confused. On the one hand she wanted to spend more time with Amit; he was young, fun and attractive and best of all he seemed to like and admire her so much. On the other hand having an affair was not her style and she did not really want to break her marriage. As she walked into her house, prepared to plunge into household chores, she was stunned to see that the kids had not come home yet. In a panic she looked around and rushed to grab her phone from her bag to make a call.
As she was about to reach her bag a pair of hands grabbed her from behind and a voice whispered…..
Rahul :: Hush… the kids are at your mother’s place. Now pretty woman, can I take you out to dinner?”
Heard her husband’s voice and felt his arms around her she knew that things would be alright. She looked at him and smiled. She said
Jyoti :: “I would love to, but what is the occasion?”
Rahul :: “Do I need an excuse to take you out?”
Jyoti :: “But things have changed….”
Rahul :: “I know, but will you give me a chance to change?”
Jyoti :: “Okay, but can I make a call first?”
Rahul :: “I will wait outside in the car. Join me once you are done”
Jyoti (calling Amit) :: “Hi! Listen I thought about the dinner and I don’t think it’s a good idea. Thanks for being such a good friend but we both know it can never be more than that. Take care, see you at office. Good night”
