It had been a hectic week at the office. She was ecstatic to have a relaxed Friday evening. Just as she was about to reach for her bag, the phone buzzed. It was him. They had been sneaking around like this for almost 5 years. “Hi, what time are you planning to leave?”, he asked. Still indecisive about her plan, she said, “the usual time”. “I’ll be waiting at the coffee shop in 20 mins, let’s catch up.” She hesitated but gave in, “Yeah that would be great, see you! ”
She thought about how long this could last . But as they had successfully completed 5 years of their marriage, she knew they could still do these little dates, without anyone else knowing them.
