She was shocked when she opened the envelope and saw that it was a red splotch of what looked like blood over a mysterious word—guilty.
Her first instinct was to call her husband into the room but then hesitated. She grabbed her cel and tried to contact Jules but there was no answer. Then she felt a panic come over her. She dashed out to her car to check on Jules and see he was alright. Their affair always meant more to him than her and she was praying he did nothing foolish.
It only took fifteen minutes for her to reach his flat. She was lucky not to get pulled over for speeding but when she drove into his parking lot, the police were already there for a different matter. She didn’t care what they thought as she pushed by them into the apartment complex hallway. His door wasn’t open so she pounded on the door. After what seemed a lifetime, Jules casually opened the door. He had an evil grin on his face, “get some upsetting news my dear?”
At first she thought she was going to faint, her legs felt like jelly. Seeing that he was perfectly fine, anger took over. “What’s the meaning of this” shaking the bloody note in his face.
“Just an admission of guilt I was hoping your husband would open and read.”
“I knew you didn’t want to end the affair, but this is too much! I never want to hear from you again!”
“C’est la vie, mon amour”, shutting the door in her face.
