The Truth

She was inconsolable. Her eyes were all swollen… red, but the tears were just flowing…

Memories flashed in front of her as she lay alone that night.

He was the best… the best husband, the best friend, the best lover and the best actor… and only she knew him best.

He had to be disposed.

  1. hmm….now this one is a real nice one…and the picture compliments it wonderfully

  2. Hey um confused!!! was he unfaithful(only she knew him best) or was she (he had to be disposed)..???

    nd yeah frm now on, i’ll not be appreciaitng ur 55ers (as they dont need it anymore) bt only cmnting on d story:)

  3. @ Vipul: Why the confusion?

    Was he unfaithful…May be, coz only she knew him best.

    I guess, focus on ‘the best actor’ will get a different thought.

    What do you think now?? 😀

  4. hi shilpa..

  5. “”He was the best… the best husband, the best friend, the best lover and the best ACTOR… and only she knew him best””

    Confusion ends with “actor”.

    This is a Masterpiece!!!!

    To paraphrase one of my recent post titles:–

    “”The Shilpa’s Masterpiece!!””

  6. yeah ofcourse i noticd the BEST ACTOR nd it made things clear uptill tht point.. bt sumhow d last wrd DISPOSED totally changed the meaning of d whole story. I mean it is this wrd which confused me 🙁
