Flash Fiction, Friday Fictioneers – The Ever-forgiving wife
Jean watched his ex-girlfriend Irene berating her boyfriend Joseph from his boat. He couldn’t hear her from this distance but he pitied Joseph. He remembered being in Joseph’s shoes often. Initially, he couldn’t figure out how to get rid of Irene. He was a married man. But Irene had been terrified when he had mooted the plan to kill his wife Anne. She had immediately cut off from him in horror. What Irene hadn’t known was that it was Anne who came up with this scheme to get rid of her when Jean had confessed his secret affair to her.
