A short story in under 200 words
“Will I ever get past the cheating? I don’t know. Show me why I should.”
“You’re always out with your friends and up in other men’s faces how do I know you’re not cheating? I hope it’s worth it.” The narcissist using reverse psychology isn’t that cute.
Late night working and friends call to meet up for a drink.
"Hey babe I’m meeting Melanie and Trina for a quick drink, I'll be home after."
“Tell your boyfriend hi for me,” Ryan says sarcastically.
In a booth talking with Melanie and Trina enjoying my martini and my husband walks in arm and arm with a tall drink of European water. A comfortable place for him as it was his ex-wife and mother of his adult children. Interesting to say the least since he claims he hasn’t talked to her since we married a year ago.
Walking over to them and my husband’s eyes are wide open. “I didn’t know you were having a family reunion? I didn’t get the invite or the T-shirt”.
“Exactly cause you’re not family, just the latest wife, know your role,” Natasha snickers with a devilish grin.
