He was so used to her presence that he never expected her to leave.

But that’s just how the universe works!

She stood there, in front of him, packed bags in hand.

Somehow, he still couldn’t believe what he was seeing. How could she be leaving?

He couldn’t let this happen.

He – How can you leave me without an explanation?

She looked at him with utter disbelief. She couldn’t believe he was actually asking for a reason. An explanation!

She – First, you wanted to change me. But then, you started to reduce me. I was done saying ‘yes’ to you!

He – But you can’t leave me. You have nowhere to go!

She – You think a girl can’t live alone? Actually, I wouldn’t expect your sexist self to understand!

His eyes widened further as she started to leave. This couldn’t be happening.

He had to stop her.

And so, he held her tight by the arm in an attempt to stop her. The glass bangles on her wrist smoothly cut through her skin.

Swiftly and with surprising agility, she pulled her hand out of his grip and it landed squarely on his face.

The sound of the slap could be heard far and loud.

This was her revenge!

No matter what the police said or how much they refused to believe, molestation of a maid was still molestation.
