Losing Everything… That Moment


A couple had been married for 10 years but they didn’t have any child. They stayed with each other and really hoped that they will have a child before their 11th anniversary. Their family and friends were pursuing them to get a divorce but they didn’t wanted to get separated because of the strong love between them.

Months passed.

One day while the husband was returning home from work, he saw his wife walking down the street with a man. They were looking very happy. After a week again he saw his wife with the same man again hugging each other.

One evening while the husband was returning home, He saw that man drop her off with a good bye kiss on her cheek. The Husband got angry and sad.

After a hectic day at work, The Husband was home. While he was holding a glass of jug to get water, her Phone rang. He received the call. As soon as he picked the call, a voice came from other side saying, “Hello dear, I will be coming to your house this evening to see you as i promise, I hope..”

Husband hung up call before hearing any further. Husband thought to himself, “It was male voice and i am sure it’s same person i have seen with my wife many times.” He thought he had lost his wife to another man and while thinking that glass jug fell from his hand and shattered into pieces.

Hearing the noise, his wife came running to him and asked, “Is everything okay??”

In anger he pushed his wife. She fell and wasn’t moving. Few seconds later the husband realized that she fell on the broken jug pieces and a large piece had pierced her. The Husband tried to feel her pulse, heartbeat but there wasn’t any.

His wife was dead. He saw an envelope in her hand. He took it and read it. He was shocked by what was written in it.

It reads :
“My loving husband, words can’t express how i feel so… I had to write down this letter. I have been seeing a doctor for over a week and i wanted to be sure before giving you the big news.

The Doctor have confirmed that i am pregnant. Our baby is due 5 months from now. The Doctor i have been seeing is my long lost brother whom i contacted after our marriage. He promised to take care of me and our baby and will give us the best care without any fee.

He promised to have dinner with us tonight. I had to write to you because i am so happy. Thanks for staying by my side.

Your loving wife.”

The Letter fell from his hands. At the same time he heard a knock on the door it was the same man he had seen with his wife. He came in and said, “Hello, i am John, your wife’s brother…….” Suddenly he notice his sister lying in a pool of her blood. He rushed her to the hospital where she was confirmed dead.
