FFfAW Challenge-Week of August 29, 2017 – Humiliated

It was true she had to admit that he had broken her heart, pierced through it with his act of deliberate humiliation.

It was a set up in which he led her to believe one thing before leaving her an emotional mess.

They had agreed to meet at the Museum. There was an exhibition of contemporary art on display, and as they had both signalled their desire to see it, so they agreed to meet there on the Sunday morning.

She waited an hour before he arrived. She should have known, she thought in hindsight, as it turned out he was watching her wait, enjoying her discomfort in the cold morning air.

Then he arrived with Rhonda on his arm. Her best friend, the one she confided in. He announced with a sanctimonious smile on his face that she was dumped and Rhonda was now his girlfriend.

Off they pranced, hand in hand leaving her punctured, devastated and broken.

  1. Very cruel. Great story!

  2. Emily says:

    How horrible! I love how you’ve linked the brutality in the image to the cruelty of heartbreak – really well done, Michael 🙂

  3. Iain Kelly says:

    Watching her wait was a particularly cruel thing to do. She’s better off without him!

  4. Moon says:

    Terrible betrayal!
    Great story !

  5. James says:

    For a while, one of my sons dated a woman who loved to torture his ex-wife by showing up together at events they knew she’d be at. Eventually, we and some of my son’s friends, convinced him of what a snake this woman is and he broke up with her. Even if you divorce someone, they’re still the parent to your children and you should treat them with some respect.

  6. Oh my! The games people play never cease to amaze me. I think she is much better off without that man! Great story, Michael!

    Interesting that we both penned stories about relationships

  8. luckyjc007 says:

    She’s better off without him! No one deserves to be treated that way. An excellent stroy of how cruel humans can be to each other with just a choice of words and irresponsible behavior.

  9. May his Karma turn around to haunt him. There should be respect and dignity in parting ways.

  10. Good riddance! She is saved of agony in future.
    Different take on prompt. Loved reading it!

    She’s better off without him, and her so-called ‘best friend’s too! Good story, Michael. 🙂
