Unfaithful


I was furious, my body was no longer in my control as my mind and soul seethed in anger. I was on the verge of killing, as I struggled to come to terms with myself and the truth in front of me. Of course I had a hint of suspicion, whenever he came home late and smelt of a woman's fragrance. Today, I saw him with his assistant, his hands all over her skimpily clad body. I stand quiet, clutching the knife tight, awaiting him, still unsure of whose body it will be plunged into.

This five sentence fiction is written for the topic 'Furious' at Lillie McFerrin Writes.

  1. So finally who did she go for? The hubby or the assistant?

  4. She should hurt him where it would have hurt him the most, killing is too easy a death for a cheat

  5. I think instead of killing the unfaithful its better she killed herself. That will not let them live in peace for the rest of their lives.
    If she kills one of them, then she will punish herself.

    1. She was a burden on him, with his new found love. His death will make it easier for him. Such cheats don't have a soul to feel guilt.
