Cry me a river

cry me a river correct photo crymeariver_zps3e08e393.jpg

Your prompt is:


I want a graphic or 100 words featuring someone who has been cheated on. Or someone who did the cheating! Does the cheater tell, does the cheater get caught, or does the cheater even care? THIS is what angst is about! Let's do it!

No rewards, no deadline, just... I SAW YOU!

Don't Lie to Me - Original - Anger - Violence - Mild R - 625 +/-
"Don't lie to me. Grow a pair and own up to your mistakes," you choke out though your chest feels like someone is squeezing your heart. You can;t seem to catch your breath... and... you just want a direction to take.

The man stare you straight in the eyes. Those beautiful eyes look panicked and desperate as he glances between you and his lover. "I'm not lying. I would never cheat on you. You're… you're the other half of my soul. I could no more toss you aside than I could cast my heart aside."

You take a deep breath and hold it until you white flashes before your eyes and you need to breathe. It's helped you keep your temper in check before. It doesn’t help this time though. This time he has gone too far. You never even noticed his lover leave the bed, let alone the room.

You had suspected he was cheating on you, but this time you caught him. Not in a motel or at some strange house. No, he brought his conquest home and invited his lover into your marital bed. You caught them there. Yet the bastard still has the brass cojones to say that you were wrong. That you didn’t see and hear him screwing around on you.

"I heard you whispering your sweet nothings to the bitch. I SAW YOU! I saw you both in bed naked. Are you really going to sit there, under the sheets and deny what I saw with my own two eyes?"

"Look… it doesn’t mean anything. We were just letting off some steam."

You purse your lips and narrow your eyes. "You know what? You're right. It doesn’t mean anything, because you don’t mean anything."

You watch his eyes widen. "Come on sweetheart, don't be like that. You know you're the only one for me."

"Right, I'm the only one for you. I must have been having an out of body experience because I could have sworn that you were just fucking someone other than me."

"Why don’t you come to bed and let me prove my love for you?"

"Do you remember asking me why I go to the range, even though I don’t own a gun or bow?"

"Th-that's a strange question." You can hear him gulp as you walk to your dresser. You haven’t told anyone why you went to the range, but you felt it was time he found out.

"Not really, yeah, not a strange question at all."

"Sweetheart… what are you doing?"

You grab the knives from your drawer and throw one, nicking his ear as the blade embeds itself in the headboard behind the knave.

"Listen to me well. You've got three minutes to haul your ass out of bed, get dressed, and then get lost. You can come by tomorrow, while I'm at work, and get your shit. Do not get anything that belongs to me. If I find you in here or you take something… well Chantelle has offered to let me use the range for target practice, any time of the day or night. I think the club would be exceedingly happy to have a live target. Time begins now!" You yell at the cheater.

You watched in amusement as he scurries about, like a little mouse, to get dresses and leave your apartment.

You were single again, but you couldn't bring yourself to be sad about that. At least you found out the idiot's true nature before you got too attached to him.

Maybe some time at the range would help you clear your mind. At the very least Chantelle would listen and give you his opinion about the situation. Yeah, that sounds like a good next step.

WOW. That is harsh and scary and beautiful all wrapped into one. Excellent job.

And now I have Carrie Underwood's "Before He Cheats" running through my head because that one line - "the next time he cheats, it won't be on me" is SO fitting to this fic.

XD I was watching Deadly Women when I saw the prompt. Not conductive to angst, but really compelling for anger. (And it was the episode about women who snapped on their cheating husbands.)

I'm glad you liked it and thank you for leaving a wonderful review.

Re: Don't Lie to Me - Original - Anger - Violence - Mild R - 625 +/-
Hah! Yes, I can definitely see how that might spur a bit of angry woman revenge (especially in this case).

You are so welcome. :) Reviewing is what I do best. Well, next to reading anyway. LOL

It’s Not Okay (an open letter to my lover) - Original fic - no warnings - T+, 633
Dear Lover,

It’s been too long since we’ve talked and I know that I’m partly at fault for that. But how can you place the blame fully at my feet when the conversation must always be focused on you? Your dreams, your goals, your expectations of our life together. After a certain point, you no longer want to talk when there’s no real communication happening. When it’s all give and no return on my investment of words, time, and emotions.

But maybe I’m being overly sensitive. Right? Because isn’t that what you always say to me? “You’re too sensitive, sweetheart. You need to toughen up.” And maybe you’re on to something there.

Know what, honey? I’ve toughened up. And you’re to blame. Or, maybe that should be you’re the one to thank. Either way, the results are the same.

Because I know what you’ve done and I’m having no more of it. Not now, not ever. I’m done.

I probably should have seen it coming. I could have put two and two together if I had only been more aware. You started coming home later and later, and paying me less and less attention. And yet, I was still hopeful. I still believed. I still trusted.

That was my first mistake.

It was also my last.

I have come to understand that you love him more than you could ever love me. In a way, I’m okay with that. I would have happily helped you get your man – and keep him – had you only told me he was what you truly wanted. But to do this – to cheat and sneak and lie – that is unacceptable, inexcusable.

Then I think, maybe you didn’t know. Maybe you didn’t realize that need you felt to be with him was anything more than the want of a friend. Someone who would listen, who might even understand. Perhaps you didn’t figure it out until you’d been spending too much time by his side, realizing one afternoon that it just felt right. More right than it ever had when you were with me. Possibly, it wasn’t even until that first kiss, that first touch, that you knew for sure that you were in love with him.

I wish I knew, but it’s too late now. It’s out of my hands and I can’t be bothered to give a damn any longer.

I hope that you truly do love him because what we had is over now – forever. There’s no hope I’ll take you back if this collapses in on you and suffocates you. You’ll just have to figure out how to dig yourself out of the emotional backlash just the same as I’m trying to do now. Good luck in your new life because you’re stuck with him.

Kind of makes you wish you’d treated me better, eh? But maybe not. I know you and I know how you operate. You skip through life always finding a way to make things go according to your plan, lining up with your wants and needs. Amazingly enough, by some grace of God – or whoever it is looking out for you – it always does work in your favor. So, maybe you will be okay in the end. I honestly hope so. I just know that in the end – it won’t be with me.

And I’m beginning to be okay with that. It’s taken some time, but I think that I’m going to be okay without you by my side.

Until that day when things change, I remain someone who was once everything but is now nothing but a memory. But for now, know this. What you did, the way you lied, it’s not okay. And it never will be. Ever.


Your ex-lover
