While making love with his wife, David whispered the name of his mistress. His wife was startled.
‘What did you say?’
He turned scarlet and mumbled an excuse. She pushed him off her, kicked him, and banished him from the house.
She wept. And then she wrote an important letter.

Such a sad story with a hopefully happy ending.
Who can tell what she wrote in that letter? And more importantly, to whom she sent it…
That is for you to decide, unless you leave it up to the reader to decide. That’s the mystery.
aww what a tragedy!
Fancy Gravatar. Where did you get it?
Thanks. I found this in tumblr.
sorry, hated it. 😦
No need to be sorry. The first sentence was peculiar!
Now it’s a bit better.
to the mistress..you took everything from me, and now you are invading in my space.
I like the open end to that story. It leaves you wondering just who she’s writing to — the mistress, her lawyer, a contract killer, a suicide note, or to her own lover? …No, shush, don’t tell me who! 😉
No worries! I have no idea to whom she wrote the letter.
vinny you are scintillating!
I have my doubts.
I bet she did! Nice 1-2 punch. 🙂
Excellent. Let me run a picture with one of your stories. 🙂
What do you mean?
For example, write a story about a guy on a subway train, and I will make a picture of a guy on a subway train to compliment your story. 🙂
How about you take a photo of an inky-haired woman?
I will try to find one — excellent. may take a while. i don’t have good luck withwomen. 🙂
Certainly know how to keep your followers following Mr. V. 🙂
Blame the hat!
Here is my ending: Then she wrote to her lover……… 🙂
Enjoyed your story. xxx
I suspected that. 😉
…so many love affairs around here… Where are things more stable?
In my shadowy attic things are too stable. 😦
Then I’m moving in!
I am really curious to know who the letter was for!
I think she acted appropriately to prevent gossip, then lettered her un-named gentlemanly friend to inform him of her newly taken liberty. An eye for an eye- she betrayed her infidel husband that crisp winter evening in the very bed He (her husband) had deflowered her .
