The Grudge

He saw her in a coffee shop and was shocked. It had been 10 years since he had met her and only then he remembered how he too had aged since these 10 years. Seems nature had a graceful way of making people look old. She too saw him, but didnt react as he thought she would. They had resided in the same city for these 10 years and still avoided seeing each other.

After checking out that she had come alone he went to her table and sat without asking her permission.

He :"How are you?"
She:"Yeah fine..and you?"
He :"Yeah..How is your husband? How many kids do u have?"
She:"He is fine. One boy and a girl.How is your wife?"
He :"Yeah fine."

There was an awkward silence in between them and both knew that it was out of guilt. They parted with a Good bye like old friends.

Walking out of the coffee shop he realised that even after these 10 years he could not forgive his only sister for marrying against his wishes.
