My wife had been pestering me to buy her a diamond ever since we got married. It’s been 24 long years but I couldn’t satiate her love for diamonds, which I realized over these years is much elevated in enormity to her love for me.

I had been dreading to go to bed with her every single night, lest she reminds me that yet another day having passed without me getting a diamond for her. This has been how I survived every single night in these over two decades of our togetherness.

Gulping down the coffee, Jude picked up his office bag and rushed out. His wife called out behind him to finish the breakfast, he yelled back that he is already late for the meeting, as he slung his coat over his shoulder and hurried of the house.

The business meeting that Jude was catching up that morning was very important for his career. He knew that he had the expertise to get the deal struck with this client and his promotion and professional elevation depended upon it. He could not afford to miss the meeting at any cost which would have meant disastrous for his vocation.

The continuous message notification tone was what startled Sharon and woke her up. She looked at the alarm clock and then at her husband lying next to her on the bed.

It was past midnight, not too late by any standards for a phone chat with friends for many, but for her it was, someone who has now been used to go off to sleep by ten o’clock. She looked again at Francis who was deep in his slumber, his eyes firmly closed, she assumed.

Who could it be, continuously messaging at this hour; Sharon wondered as picked up her mobile phone, opened her message box and saw that it was from an unknown number. There were around 15 messages from the same number and as Sharon started reading them her hands started trembling with uneasiness. “Hi Sharon, Sandeep here”, the first message read and Sharon suddenly remembered the name.
