“Shh.. Let her sleep.” Sheela whispered while arranging toys in the crib. Since she gave birth 2 years ago, I have lost my wife in motherhood. She is around but I still miss her. “Honey, do you want to go out for dinner?” I asked her and she denied as always. She is always busy putting our child to sleep.
But I can’t complain. Even though our child was stillborn, she still became a mother. I gave her that doll to save her from depression. Little did I know that a lifeless doll will become her only reason to live.
