This is a 2 part story of Roxanne & her husband Marc.
They live in a huge society which has over 200 flats.
The couple has been happily married for over 5 years.
They have no kids.
This is Roxanne’s version of the scream…
I heard a scream of a lady coming from one of the 200 odd flats in our society.
Now the scream wasn’t usual, it had a feeling of pain written all over.
I didn’t know where it came from.
Apart from her scream, there was a man screaming too.
But their screams differed.
It felt like there was a boxing match going on.
Abuses, then hits, then screams.
The pattern kept changing, but that was the whole story.
After a while, it stopped.
So I waited the next day to find out who was going through this treatment.
I was curious of her well being.
I needed to know that she is all right, that she can get help.
I was tempted…
Tempted to find out the truth, and get her justice!!
