The Last Laugh

PHOTO PROMPT © Yvette Prior

This post is written for Friday Fictioneers.

Kat wore the flashy amethyst pendant to her “good friend” Sarah’s tea party. Today, she would burst Sarah’s bubble that her holier-than-thou husband had a string of mistresses. Kat smiled maliciously.

“I have the exact same pendant.” The model seated beside Kat pouted. She was lovely and fashionably anaemic.

“It’s a gift from my husband,” Kate supplied.

“And my lover gifted it to me,” the model provoked.

“The colour reminds him of the English …

“lavender – delicate but heady just like me.” The model finished.

Kat, shocked, looked at Sarah. Sarah with her big innocent eyes, smiled.

    It is nice to share the same tastes, but whose? Nice turn towards the realisation of what was going on.

    ouuuu, ouch! That bites! 🙂 Great take… such cruelty…hehe!

  6. Abhijit Ray says:

    Whose husband is holier than thou? Kate’s or Sarah’s? It is clear that Kate’s husband is loving more than one woman and gifting them the similar necklace.

  9. Dear Anshu,

    Sarah’s husband certainly gets around, doesn’t he? Perhaps he should vary his line from mistress to mistress. Good one.

    The tables have turned. I don’t think I like the two-timing guy.

  11. Secrets revealed, now the real story begins. Watch out, gentlemen. Lovely.

  12. I think we are ready for a showdown… maybe the “man” of the house should remain absent

    Two two-timing husbands? I think messengers with this kind of information are guaranteed to come unstuck.
