The House that Jaya Built

“One day, Jaya was entering the house. She could hear her parents talking to someone loudly inside. She tiptoed cautiously. Someone was saying, “No, this time I have come for good. I was wrong to go with the other woman. She has given me nothing but trouble. Even the two children she gave me are no good.” It was Raju! The man she had married! Her own husband! Her eyes went to her wedding picture on the wall. How handsome and muscular he had become! When he looked at her like that, she was ready to leave everything to go and live with him.”
