The lie

She looked into his eyes. “Don’t you trust me?” she asked. “You know I would never lie to you.”

He turned away.

He hadn’t been honest with her. He was the one who had lied.

“I need to tell you something” he said. “Let’s talk tonight.”

He would come clean. He hoped she would forgive him.

“Alright darling” she replied, as she kissed him on the cheek. “I’m heading out for lunch at the club with the girls. See you later.”

He watched her drive away.

Little did he know she was off to meet his business partner.

In a few hours, he would have neither his business nor his wife.
