Waiting at the Airport was Sameer, for his wife who was supposed to return home after 6 long months of internship in Dubai. It was a love at first site for him, 4 years ago, at a friend’s wedding where Sejal was with her family; followed by a quick arranged wedding. While the flight was supposed to land at 4:30 am, it was 8 pm yet his eyes were waiting for Sejal’s arrival. While Sameer’s phone in the car received a wedding picture of her with a Shaikh Khalid, the “I’m sorry” note along haunted Sameer for rest of his life.
This is such a short but heart rending story
OMG!!! that’s so sad, such news should never be broken on a text message. Etiquettes of breakups…
Some love stories show how selfish a person can be and the disastrous effect it causes the other!
Damn, I am feeling super bad for Sameer. Such a short story but such strong emotions!
O my God. Poor husband waiting from 4:30 AM till 8 in the evening is shocking.
I like your short stories with ends with a surprise.
Oh, I feel sad for Sameer.
Waiting for was not fruitful for Sameer, maybe Sejal had her love for first sight in Dubai 🙂
Poor fellow, got stood up for life. Nice to read this short story, hoping you turn it into long form some day, it will be interesting to learn the circumstances that made the girl do what she did.
How very poignant! I feel for the poor guy. I am a huge fan of such tight writing, wonderfully done.
Oh, did not expect that kind of twist. It was a nice read.
Nooooo… 💔 This is so heartbreaking story… 😭
That was short and impactful read.
