Bishnu went back to the other bedroom. He noticed that there were kiddie toys and posters all over. So this was the kids’ bedroom. On the wall a picture of mixed group of children stood out. The girl in the middle, 5 or 6 year old like the others in the picture, had a striking resemblance to Tanya. In a bedside photo stand, the same girl was sitting on this bed, with her brother, 1-2yrs old, on her lap. A large poster of Elsa (from Frozen) decorated the back of the door. Sucheta woke up from her deep slumber, feeling disoriented. She was lying in an unknown room with a boy beside her. Her breasts and bottom ached, and her head was in splitting pain. She felt nauseated.
“Hi Sleeping Beauty. Had a nice sleep?”
Sucheta was shocked to realize it was Bishnu. She felt vulnerable and embarrassed to be naked in front of him. She did remember last night, but what had seemed natural under the influence of alcohol felt different now.
“Where are we?”
“Tanya mam’s flat. The kiddies’ bedroom. You ok?”
“No. My head’s splitting. And spanking hurts long after it is applied.”
“I am Sorry baby. I thought you enjoyed it. I will never hurt you, you know that right?”
“Yes… I did enjoy. In a sense. And we had great sex last night. Maybe because of the spanking. But it effing hurts now!”
