100 Words - Dark Secrets




He asked me a lot about her.
She was my friend, smart, intelligent, charming.
She asked me a lot about him.
I thought they were innocent questions.
They were studying together and had got to know each other.

I knew him through another close friend.
They were soon to marry and wedding plans were well under way.
He didn't have the courage to tell her he was seeing someone else.
Then suddenly one day he left.
Left her for the smart, intelligent, charming girl.

A dark secret revealed that completely shattered her world.
If only I had caught on sooner.
