She knew he was going to give her a long, deep kiss, but she was surprised when he raised her hand to his lips instead.
Disappointment and then anger was written all over her face as she snatched her hand away.
‘What are you playing at?’ she demanded.
‘I’m not ‘playing at’ anything Liz. I’ve just had enough of your empty promises and being your scapegoat. You got yourself into this mess, you can get yourself out of it. ‘
‘You can’t leave me like this Gus! How can I face my husband after leaving him that letter?’
‘That, my dear, is your problem. How did you manage after your affair with David? Or John for that matter, or was it Steve? And poor Simon was so gutted, he decided to bat for the other side.’
‘I’ll ruin you!’ she hissed.
‘Go ahead. I’ve already tendered my resignation to the board and have a press conference scheduled for tomorrow. Of course my speech isn’t quite finished yet, but there’s room for additions, or withdrawals, if necessary, so I’d think twice before you do anything rash.’
He collected his coat and quietly shut the door behind him.

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.
