This week’s words: Slap Catch Pummel Linear Melodramatic Stringent Harbour Bare-faced Cupid’s Bow Windowsill Crestfallen Silent Treatment
Lily Snucks was determined to catch out her cheating husband one way or another.
She was aware he had fallen for the young girl with the Cupid’s bow. She was crestfallen from the day she was standing at the windowsill watching her husband arrive home in a car she hadn’t seen before.
The silent treatment that followed did little to change the situation as he was into melodramatic moments and had uttered bare-faced lies about what he was up to.
The slap of his denial gave her had injured her significantly. As it was their relationship had followed a predictably linear line from childhood sweethearts to aging antagonists, but despite this she did love him and had no urge to look elsewhere for company, unlike him and his midnight harbour cruises which were a far cry from the stringent measures she placed her under in terms of their living budget.
Everything came to a head when she found lipstick on his collar, and she vented her frustrations by pummelling him with her tiny fists, but it was all to no avail.
He and his girl with the Cupid’s bow sailed off on the harbour leaving her a crestfallen wreck.
