“I was saddened by the flare of anger in the boy’s face as he grabbed his bag and walked off the door.” He was cute. His father hugged him and politely nodded at me. I was tired of his screaming that evening at his house. I was his mother’s best friend. I had been taking care of him for the past 2 weeks. He was crazy for toys but did not like to share them. I looked at his cousin who was sleeping at a bed. His mother had called earlier to inform me that she would be coming to fetch him soon. I checked my sms on my hp and realized that I had missed his call. He was a dear friend who had gone overseas. His sister had visited the city just yesterday and he was coming down. He was a nice looking man who had a friendly puppy. He had shown the pic to me thr hp. I was amazed that an ex-reporter like him had a low profile.
Darren did not like fame. He liked to keep a low profile. He was retired from his job and he kept busy by growing roses in his garden. His sis had reminded him to visit Nancy at her friend’s house where she was working as a baby sitter for 2 kids. She had been Darla’s friend for 6 yrs and they kept in touch easily. One day Darla has asked if she wanted to take care of her son and she had agreed. She was happy as she was a producer keeping a TV job for a few yrs. She had been happy and now she was resting with a lower pay but an enjoyable job taking care of children at home.
“What’s wrong?” he asked as he looked at his son Ben. Ben was looking tired and he nudged him and smiled at him. He loved his son but lately his wife had been nagging about him playing too much alone in his room. Something was up. He was silent too not his usual chirpy self where he used to talk to him about buying toy soldiers.
“What’s that?” she asked as she noticed Brendon took off his shirt and went to the cupboard for another shirt. There was a mark on his back. She shuddered to think what could have happened?
“It is nothing. I got hurt last time when I was driving.” He smiled and touched her cheeks as he dressed for going out to the cafe where he was the boss. He watched the clock on the wall. “I forgot the earlier appointment with Jim,” he remarked as Nancy walked to the loo in the master room. The room became dark suddenly. He took a torch light and on it. He saw Nancy take her hp and switched on it. He went to the living room and took a candle. It was Nancy’s birthday. He celebrated by taking a cake he had baked. Nancy was touched as she hugged Brendon. They had a great day. – Anu V blogger
