My husband’s friend..

You should have seen my husband’s face at that moment! Amy, a woman in her early 50s, was looking forward to a Saturday spent with her husband of six years, Mark. But as he kissed her on the forehead, he told her he needed to be at the office because he had loads of work. He even assured her that if he could bring his work home, he would do so and bring home some delicious Indian food. Little did Amy know that this was just an excuse. Mark and Amy had known each other for many years before they got married. Mark had a reputation of being a Casanova, always dating different girls. But when he finally decided to settle down, he chose Amy. They had a great relationship, or so Amy thought. Although she wanted to spend the day with him, Amy decided to take some time for herself and enjoy a good book and a cup of tea. As she got lost in the pages, she received a message. It was from Tom, her husband’s best friend and someone she considered family. Intrigued, she decided to listen to the voicemail.

Tom could be heard saying, “Hi, I’m running a little late for our double date. I’ll be there at around 2 PM, okay? It’s Coachella, right?” This left Amy confused. She didn’t recall Mark mentioning anything about a double date. She initially thought Tom had gotten things confused and ignored the message. However, something told her there could be more to it, so she decided to investigate. Amy discovered that Coachella was an outdoor restaurant with a festival theme. She chose a secluded table that allowed her to have a clear view of the entrance. As she anxiously waited, hoping that Mark would either not show up or come alone, her heart sank when she saw him entering the restaurant with a stunning woman dressed in designer clothing. Amy watched as Mark joined Tom and his wife Sasha at their table. The four of them seemed to be having a great time, completely oblivious to Amy’s existence. The pain in her heart was unbearable, but she knew that this was not the time for tears – it was time for action. She called the waiter and asked him to bring the best champagne to Mark’s table. Sensing the tension in the air, the waiter complied with a nod and a small smile. Amy snapped a photo of Mark with the other woman and posted it on Facebook, tagging Mark in the post. As Mark’s phone buzzed with the notification, his face turned pale. He frantically searched the room, unable to spot his wife. Amy then called the waiter again, ordered another champagne, and wrote a message on a piece of paper that said, “To a memorable double date and our divorce, cheers!“. With a sense of grace and determination, she left the restaurant and went home. When Mark arrived home a couple of hours later, he found his things packed. He tried to explain that he didn’t mean to cheat on Amy, that he was just having fun. But she didn’t want to listen to his lies and excuses. Mark ended up staying at Tom’s place, and Amy knew that it was time for her to file for divorce. If you were in her place, what would you do?
