Not Meant to Be

“I’m leaving”, he said angrily.

She turned and looked at him, blinking her sleepy eyes. “Not again!”, she groaned.

She knew he was hurt. Last week, she had promised to give it another try, she really wanted this to work. She knew it was really important to him and he really wanted to share this part of his life with her, but she just couldn’t do it.

She looked at him wishing she could be what he needed. But there was nothing she could do.

“Fine!” she replied indignantly, “I’m sorry I can’t be what you need!”

She heard the front door close as he left.

With a sigh, she turned over and snuggled in her warm blanket. No matter what happened, she would never be able to get out of bed before 7 am.

And she could never be his gym partner. She just wasn’t a morning person. 


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.
