He was nervous.
Drops of sweat resting on head dropped on the floor with every jerk, giving it a taste of salt.
Cracking his knuckles every time they went white with the pressure he put on them.
Flashbacks of the similar days made him go numb, they had never made it through, he never made it through.
The entire room was full of known faces, their prayers and unwanted banters but nothing reached his ears.
All he could hear was a slight touch of the heels of the lady, on the concrete floor, walking out from the room where his life laid.
That smile on the lady’s face while handing him over the most precious gift of his life made him forget every other thing, all the failure they had faced earlier.
He was a Dad now!
Before the nurse could say anything,
He carried the baby and went inside the room but was welcomed by a lifeless body of a beautiful lady.
She made him a Father but made him let go of his duties as a Husband.
He was unsure of his feelings, if he should cry over the dead body of his wife or be happy about the crying little baby girl in his arms.
He was unsure of if it was a
Father’s Day or the start of a Lifeless Life?
