The Assignation

EB939CB1-743D-4475-8809-C30DC2AA0717Carolyn was very nervous. She was not the kind to play these clandestine games. In fact, she’d never done anything like this before. But she so did admire this man. Unlike her husband, who was boring and predictable, this other man was eclectic. His interests were varied and wide, his style was sophisticated, and his conversation was fascinating, especially given his delightful British accent. Not only that, he was gorgeous.

So when he invited her back to his home after they had met after work for drinks at a local bar, she decided to say yes. The excitement, the intrigue, the very idea of engaging with someone like him, so different, so new, so refreshing, and, of course, so damn gorgeous, clouded her better judgment.

They had been at his place for only a few minutes, locked together in a passionate embrace, when the sound of a key being inserted into the lock of the front door could be heard. “Damn,” he said. “It’s my wife. She wasn’t supposed to be back from her trip until tomorrow. Quick, there’s the back door,” he said pointing toward the kitchen. “You need to skedaddle.”
