If only she’d kept her mouth shut, the affair would have fizzled out and everything would have remained normal. But since she couldn’t keep the affair to herself, her marriage is on the rocks and it would take her a long time to get over what happened.
Lucy of course didn’t expect to get such a text from her best friend. She honestly thought she was doing the right thing but clearly, she’d made the wrong move. Five years down the line and she has never heard from her best friend. She stopped visiting their favorite spots and from what she hears from friends, they are still married and everything is normal.
Lucy walks in on her best friend’s husband having sex with a co-worker in the office. He begs her not to tell his wife about what she’d just witnessed. She’s both disgusted and horrified by him and she knows she has to tell her best friend about her husband’s affair.
She however decides not to tell her. After all, she doesn’t want to be the bearer of bad news or break up a happy home. So she decides to let her best friend find out for herself.
A few weeks later, her best friend calls her asking her to come over. Lucy drops everything she is doing and rushes over to her house because she sounded hysterical over the phone.
She finds her packing her stuff. Her husband had told her about the affair and she wants nothing to do with him anymore.
Lucy reveals to her that she knew about the affair but she didn’t want to tell her because she didn’t want to ruin the marriage.
