Friday Fictioneers – Jilted Lover


Friday Fictioneers - claire-fuller-9.web

He’ll never do this to another woman again. I fell for the outer trappings.
Tall, dark, with piercing green eyes that bulge out like beacons. The penthouse in Manhattan overlooking Central Park.

I fell for it all. What a fool I was.

Never again!

An office romance never works out. And my boss, no less.

What was I thinking. I lost him and my job.

He won’t get away with it. I’ll ruin him.
No one will suspect me. I’ve always had access to the files.
I’ll get to them, copy his business and personal information.

Then, call his wife.

Recent news reports about the hacking of a cheaters web-site influenced this story. Read more below:

CNN It must have been a panic attack weekend for Ashley Madison website customers wondering whether they were soon to be outed in the latest highly publicized breach of cybersecurity. The website openly facilitates adulterous relationships with the help of a sophisticated advertising campaign which promised discretion and security. Its name, “Ashley Madison,” is a clever blend of two particularly popular female names with a ring of class and elegance, aimed at attracting the married men who largely populated the site. Information©Paul Callan is a CNN legal analyst, a former homicide prosecutor and media law professor. He is “of counsel” to two law firms: Edelman & Edelman PC and Callan, Koster, Brady & Nagler LLP. The opinions expressed in this commentary are his.

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

  2. Even without the AM leak, I think, most cheaters get caught. Part of the allure lies in that risk. But, great story.

  6. The guy doesn’t realise the trouble he’s in. Some don’t. Nice one.

  7. Oh, how satisfying revenge can be…but it never quite makes up for the anguish of a broken heart and wounded pride. Expertly written! 🙂

  8. So many women have had this very same thing happen to them. And, also the other way around – where a woman won’t have an affair with the boss and they get fired for that. Workplace romances are not a good thing! Excellent story!

    • You are so right. It can happen the opposite way too.
      The recent hacking of the cheaters web-ste Ashley Madison brought to light the lengths that men
      will go to at times to do what doesn’t always involve the brain.
      I enjoyed your comment and visit. Thnak you !!! 😍

    • Internet privacy … none. The cheating web-site Ashley Madison has been exposing some cheaters.
      It’s been in the news lately. Perhaps, it would have been best for these men to keep desires to stray
      under control. Ahhh … a woman scorned can be very venomous. 😎


  10. This scenario is played out all too often. Good one Issy. 🙂

    • Hola Rochelle,
      A newspaper article I read took my story in this direction. The cheating
      web-site Ashley Madison has been exposing quite a few cheaters. And, they thought
      they were safe. HAH !!!!
      It’s not literature but a fun read. Thank you for visiting and leaving your nice comment.

    • I was wondering how I came up with th idea to write this. I must have been influenced by the recent
      discussion of Ashley Madison’s web-site on the news. Ahhh … the subconscious mind.
      As you can see nothing on the internet is safe.
      Thank you for your insightful comment and for stopping by. 😊


  14. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
    Good piece.
