She had planned it to the T.
Even before her feet touched the ground. The second she opened her eyes and traced the pattern of the ceiling almost chalking out the plot with an invisible ink.
Sitting in the balcony sipping on her quiet cup of ginger tea , before the world woke up and took her life over , the finer details were etched out. Her over zealous mind planned every little detail like the plot of a Hitchcock movie. She smiled at the parallel drawn.
Breakfast done with , the husband was out for the better part of the day , it being a working weekend for him. She wound up the work and took her son to the park & then to the mall.
The guilt did creep in as she watched the little ball of excitement hug her tightly and thank her for a fabulous day.
I’ve raised him so well.
The guilt of what the entire day was leading to , hardly something the perfect mom is expected to do , for a split second fade away as intense feeling of love for this tiny bundle of pure joy took over .
Once back , she fed the little one and soon he crashed out of fatigue. The call from husband’s office arrived on dot as expected.
I am going to be late , don’t wait up for dinner.
Nope she wont. She looked around in the quiet , empty house. This is the moment , the one she had been waiting for since her waking thought.
She opened her laptop , a tall mug of coffee and a huge smile on her face as company . Headed to the one place that was her universe , a world away for her world. Where she felt completely alive , like her own person .
