A contented sigh escaped her on seeing the husband appeasing their daughter.

How adorable they look, with him doing monkey tricks and she sitting stoically, she mused.

The doorbell broke her reverie.

She dashed out with a kiss in their direction, oblivious to the panic-stricken child.

“Come to daddy!” he smiled as the door closed.

  1. I remember reading this book by Jodi Picoult titled Change of Heart. In the end, it is shown that the convicted criminal was trying to save the victim from her father, and not abusing her himself! It was such a stunning book! Do read it, (even though I have spoiled the surprise for you )

    10/10 for the subtle way in which you described the situation, and for the effective use of the title.

    • Yes, it happens with so many children. The poor kids have to bear all the pain and trauma all by themselves, sometimes for years!! Thanks Debbie.

  2. something unbearable shilpa….. brought to my mind a case wherein the father abused his daughter, and the girl ran away from home to be rescued by an NGO which I was part of … very pathetic and traumatic for the child… not easy to deal with too… very relevant post shilpa.

  4. Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do a
    little research about this. We got a grab a book from our
    area library but I think I learned more clear from this post.
    I am very glad to see such fantastic info being shared freely out
    there.
