Deep and Aarohi, cute couple in front of the world had been married for long. He had married her for his lust while she had married him for her love. He always wanted pleasure from her, besides that, he just shouted on her and abused her.
One day, they had a bad argument. He got so angry that he killed her. He immediately regretted what he had done as the two had children together, but he didn’t want to be caught. He eventually decided to bury his wife’s body under the living room floor.
Days went by, and he never told his kids what had really happened. He hated himself for it. He thought his children must be sensing his distress because they looked up at him far more often than they used to. Sometimes they would stare and stare at him, seemingly without reason. It didn’t seem weird to him, though. After all, their mother was gone.
One day, he snapped. He couldn’t keep the secret anymore.
“Hey kids,” he started. “I have something really important I need to talk about with you…”
“Huh?” his son’s eyes widened. “Really? What’s it about? We have to tell you something, too.”
“Oh? Would you like to speak first?” He was quite perplexed.
“Well, Daddy,” his little girl looked up towards him. “It’s kind of weird, but…”
The two children looked above his head as they finished speaking together.
“Why have you been giving Mommy a piggy back ride for so long?”
