Friday Fictioneers – Just Once

The study was dreary even with the sun shining through the thin curtains.

‘Just once,’ he’d said.

Part of her wanted to give into his adulterous plan. 

She twisted her wedding band round and round. 

Her heart fluttered with a wave of excitement.

Glancing at the clock, she knew Randall wouldn’t be home for hours.

His empty whiskey glass her justification for the wayward exploit.

The phone rang again.

She picked up the receiver slowly; her yearning greater than her reasoning. 

She could hear his voice was full of desire.

“Once,” she said to him, “just once and never again.”

The Rendezvous

The Rondezvous

The lone bench awaited the lovers.
A plaza in the center of town seemed like the perfect spot for their rendezvous.
They’d spoken about meeting to make future plans.
He was enthralled by her beauty.
It was getting harder and harder for him to wait for her to try to sneak away.
Now, they would discuss her escape from her husbands brutal ways.
Time was passing.
He grew suspiciously impatient.
What was the delay?
No matter, she would soon be his.
But, sadly, it was not meant to be.
How could they have known,
her husband would come home early, that day, and kill her.
