Not Tonight

'Hi, can we meet at my place tonight?', he asked. Charmingly.
'Not tonight, I am sorry, erh. . .', she replied apologetically. Her tone flaccid as one waiting to be persuaded to give in.
'Why the hell not. . .?', he interjected. Confident.
'I am purifying myself for the once-in-a-month treat for my hubby this weekend', she emphasized unashamedly.
'Okay. . .', he gasped. Shocked. Bemused. He looked around as if to make sure nobody else heard what he has just heard.
'. . . bye', she hanged up. Gazing at the cellphone for a brief moment. Before strutting off. Home bound, happy that she has managed to have her way this time.

This has intrigue and an ending I didn't expect. Quite a brief treat.

value-systems indeed! that was scary!! no need asking who's having the affair? She just dumped him?

Thanks NY.
A brief scene from the manifold and complex relationships and affairs going on around us everyday.

I have painfully learnt to accept that the value-systems of many souls these days are totally devoid of any sort of value.
The state of moral decay is beyond shocking.

I was really shocked at that. She gives her hubby sex only once a month and goes around having affairs? SMH...

Yes, MW.
Could it be the husband's libido is the problem. She is getting it somewhere what she does not get at home. No?
