The sight of his arm around her shoulders made her cringe.
For almost a year she had been floating in a mist of love, wearing his token pin on her lapel, her mind full of planning their future together.
She didn’t miss the telling sign, the way he would gawk at her across the room, his tongue all but lolling from his mouth like a panting puppy.
She gave him enough rope to hang himself in case she was mistaken and he hadn’t lied about his intentions. But he had and watching the couple celebrate their anniversary together, she felt as if her heart had been chopped in two.
True to form of a woman scorned, her gift to his wife was a video tape of them together.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour 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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
