He had beaten her with his belt today; then slapped and kicked her till she had almost stopped breathing.
She’d had enough; today, she planned to run away.
He was in the other room, drinking and cursing. Scrambling to the open window, Radha got out.
Bare feet hitting the cold tarmac.
Suddenly, her cotton saree caught in her feet. She stumbled, her head hitting the sidewalk.
She couldn’t move!
Then, light as air, she got up. Glancing back at her body, sprawled across the sidewalk, she smiled.
She was free at last, he could never hurt her now!
