Sumathi was in a Predicament, just when she was getting ready to enter one of her favorite restaurant after spending a couple of hours in a shopping mall, fully exploiting the weekly freedom granted by her hubby who was busy even on Sundays.
To her shock and surprise, her ex-lover was sitting in a corner of the restaurant, sipping his tea. She could very well visit some other restaurants but she knew the purpose of his visit to this city. One of her friends has informed her over the phone that he would take revenge on her for letting him down.
How did she manage to tackle the tricky situation?. The other day I happened to fish out a few papers from an old leather bag and incidentally it contained the manuscript of one of my short stories (written 7 or 8 years ago). After reading a page or two I decided to recall how I shaped the events and how I ended the Predicament of Sumathi?.
After racking my brains for some time, I remembered how Sumathi won him over and the purpose of her ex-lover’s visit was not to take revenge on her but to seek a favour from her. It was, Of course, one of the “All is well that ends well stories!”
