A Woman Scorned

“The good news, Tom,” Alan said, “is that we agreed that we would remain friends.”

Tom roared with laughter. “You’re delusional, buddy,” he said. “What figment of reality makes you think she wants you two to still be friends after this?”

“Well, when she broke up with me she did it amicably,” Alan said. “In fact, we were both very adult about it.”

“You cheated on her, for crissake,” Tom said, “so this breakup was definitely was your fault. And friends? You need to take off your crown of fools, dude. Haven’t you heard the expression about hell having no fury like a woman scorned?”
