This was really an emotional atyachar. What looked like a romantic beginning ended up as a doctor and patient conversation. Remarkable twist :DD

One of my patients always tells me that.

This was exceptionally well written. Somehow I had a feeling that this was about a cheating spouse but you took me by complete surprise. Well written.
