Once is Not Enough by Geeta Lal Sahai PDF Download

The characters in this romantic short story collection brush aside the niceties of life and unravel the feminine ambition, desire, passion, love and longing.

Eight months had passed, and I was now in a love triangle—my husband and Surr included. I would disappear every Thursday to be with Surr in his beautiful nest. I would give numerous excuses about my whereabouts at home, and I always suspected that Rishabh knew I was lying. But, I still did it because I couldn't imagine going for more than a week without seeing Surr. I had feelings for him, and the thrill of us having a gateway to drive ourselves crazy was irresistible. 
I also loved Rishabh, my husband, dearly, because I couldn't imagine life without him. He was not perfect, but I loved how he came out of his prison unscathed. I wondered why Rishabh groomed up suddenly. Then I realized how tamed he had been. From the moment I shouted back at him and refused to make him dinner last evening, my husband was never the same again. I was too angry to acknowledge it, but I struck a nerve.
"I want to apologize for how I have treated you lately," said Rishabh. He was now standing beside where I was. I was shocked by what he said, and I noticed his hands were behind him. I knew he had flowers in his hands – possibly my favourite; yellow roses. I did not know what was wrong with everyone. I just wanted to die in peace.
