This week’s photo prompt is provided by Joy Pixley. Thank you Joy!

“Dad, Let’s go boating”, his elder son shrieked with excitement.

“First I want ice cream”, his younger son demanded.

“Let’s walk over the bridge and visit the museum before it closes”, his wife suggested.

“Terror Calling..Terror Calling..” beeped his  cell phone.

His boss whom he had nicknamed as “Terror” in his cell phone was calling him on the weekend. His boss bludgeoned his teammates into staying in office for long hours unnecessarily, and working on weekends for trivial tasks. After several months of slogging in this manner, this was the first time he came out to the park with his family.

“Will deal with this on Monday”, he mumbled as he switched off his cell phone and walked his younger son to the ice cream stall.

Everyone who sees that photo tells her “What a caring husband!”

Those words prick her heart and she conceals her disappointment behind her smile.That photo reminds her of a bitter memory which leaves her confused.

It was their wedding anniversary. She wanted to surprise him with a romantic candle light dinner.

Just when she was getting ready for the fantastic evening ahead, he called her and told that they were going to a party at his friend’s place. Alas, she was let down again! For him, spending time with friends was more important than celebrating special events with the family. She knew that very well but every time she hopes he will change and that never happened.

Does it mean he doesn’t care for her? No. He always tries his best to keep her safe and secure. That’s why he noticed something amiss in her stilettos and helped her.

“He is a caring person but..”, she sighs sadly.
