Daily Post Prompt 30th March


I was accused of betraying a friend’s confidence when her marriage broke up and she lost her job.
There were a number of contributory factors to this, one of which being it’s difficult to be someone’s alibi if you don’t know you’ve been nominated.

We’d invited D over for a meal because he was on his own on a Friday night.
We had a pleasant dinner, and conversation was flowing.
What I didn’t know (and later explained his initial confusion) was that I was supposed to be out with his wife on a Girlie evening and he’d accepted our invitation thinking it was to be a Guys night.
Apparently, ‘us girls’ went out three nights a week, when actually she was seeing three different guys.

As for the confidence, it goes back over 40 years and I never told a soul.
However, her husband knew, and if you think a woman scorned can be harsh ………….


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
