I is for Infidelity
My theme for this year’s Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is Marriage from A to Z in 55 Words. I is for Infidelity in Marriage!
He didn’t knew the depth of his love until the hour of separation.
He felt distracted and somewhat wistful.
The truth will come to light sooner or later, he mused.
Comforting her with a lie wouldn’t work.
He knew that she’d scream and fight.
But he must tell her that he is back to smoking!
A Word to the Wise
If you don’t want anyone to know it, don’t do it.-Chinese Proverb

Ohh that was a twist…Reminds me I can’t stand smoking for some reason!

Thank you for your story and that quote, which is so true it gave me the chills.

Ha ha ha – loved your story today Shilpa- Great twist – when you think it is going somewhere else, right?! Well told! And oh those smokers … She must have smelled the beans already, eh?Literally:-)

LOL…I had written a similar post on my blog a while ago, smoking is a mistress of sorts 🙂 Infidelity hurts and causes relations to weaken…
April 10, 2014 1:00 am|
Lovely story 🙂
I hate smokers too.. Just can’t stand them 😛
April 10, 2014 1:01 am|
haha.. that was nice twist 😀
April 10, 2014 1:23 am|
Hey shilpa, love the way you write abt simple things so beautifully with a deeper meaning !
April 10, 2014 1:27 am|
Hahaha…not a funny topic to laugh but the twist made me smile 😛
April 10, 2014 3:04 am|
Nice twist, Shilpa.
I, too,can’t stand cigarettes or the smoke. I studied in a college that was situated near a tobacco/cigarette factory and the smell used to make me want to throw up. Needless to say that turned me off smoking for life. No bad thing, eh?
April 10, 2014 4:24 am|
Loved the twist Shilpa 🙂 He better tell her before she smells it.
April 10, 2014 6:25 am|
Comforting her with a lie won’t work because the smell is impossible to hide. Wasn’t expecting to laugh when I first starting reading your post. Thanks for that!
April 10, 2014 6:23 am|
I love your twists at the end. 😀

He must not hide it from her.Men know very well to hide things from their wife.It can be disastrous.

Twisty infidelity 😀 Jokes apart, infidelity is one thing that’s threatening to mar marriages . This is a timely post 🙂 Trust you to come up with something like this ! 🙂 Lovely way of describing an unpleasant truth. Hope he confesses soon 🙂

If you don’t want anyone to know it, don’t do it.- very well said. Liked it …
April 10, 2014 9:13 am|
Have I told you lately that you are incredible ? 😀 I never saw that last line coming. But how powerful in impact that is, even at a larger level. Well done, Shilpa. Very well done!
April 10, 2014 9:28 am|

Crisp and deep …..the quote at the end …it’s just amazing 🙂
April 10, 2014 10:39 am|
ha ha..infidelity of this form …nice twist
April 10, 2014 10:41 am|
If you don’t want anyone to know, don’t do it. Sigh!! The things we do sometimes…
April 10, 2014 10:45 am|
Nice twist. Its really hard for smokers to give up the addiction. They themselves hate it sometimes.
April 10, 2014 11:38 am|
V true.. Infidelity need not always come in the form of a 3rd perso…..
April 10, 2014 12:01 pm|
the twist in the tale was unexpected 🙂
April 10, 2014 1:47 pm|
Yikes… Don’t know what’s worse!
April 10, 2014 1:51 pm|
You had me worried for a while – but then smoking is a bad a mistress, if not worse!
April 10, 2014 2:13 pm|
oops…i thought it was something else!! 😛 yeah but that’s true…infidelity in any form weighs heavily on the conscience…
April 10, 2014 2:23 pm|
The chinese proverb holds good for all,not only smoking.But the case of smoking was well written.So true
April 10, 2014 2:32 pm|
Did’nt expect smoking there as i started reading:). That was an unexpected twist. shows how creative you are shilpa. Must take creative writing lessons from you.
April 10, 2014 2:35 pm|
The Chinese Proverb at the end was the best!
April 10, 2014 4:24 pm|
This is another beautiful write of yours. 🙂
April 10, 2014 4:34 pm|
Very interesting twist! Like it very much 🙂
April 10, 2014 4:52 pm|
Infidelity definitely make me assume something else.. But I kind liked the way you put it..
April 10, 2014 6:03 pm|
Back to smoking …. maybe a kind of warning…
I loved how the whole scenario changed within few words…amazing!
April 10, 2014 6:28 pm|
Ah…infidelity does produce such drama!
April 10, 2014 7:01 pm|
Great twist!! 🙂 But you know smoking is as bad! I love the Chinese proverb!
April 10, 2014 8:25 pm|
Poignant. I must have been expecting the expected and that’s why I was caught in surprise by the ending. You have done a wonderful job here.
April 10, 2014 9:28 pm|
ooh I am so glad it was just smoking. That would be something easier to overcome.
April 10, 2014 9:44 pm|
true!! its better to come out clean with the truth than risking the other person finding out it by themselves!!
April 10, 2014 9:55 pm|
Good one. Did not expect this end.
April 10, 2014 9:58 pm|
so true. It takes years to build and gain trust from someone. And gets ripped off by one such misjudgment.
April 10, 2014 10:27 pm|
Loove the end, Shilpa. A suspense well constructed and m guilty of that, smoking!!!
April 11, 2014 5:38 am|
I thought it was some serious thing.Smoking is a mere peccadillo although many women detest it
April 11, 2014 10:24 am|
I also just can’t stand smoking at all! Loved the proverb in the end!
April 12, 2014 5:30 pm|
Smoking is a real turn off for me. Nice little twist at the end.
April 14, 2014 7:42 pm|
But its true.
All smokers do cheat.
I did too,after having given up.
What a twist,Shilpa
April 14, 2014 11:08 pm|
smoking… that was an unexpected twist! And a lovely message- women do change life of men for better… 😆 😆
April 18, 2014 5:46 am|
Great story and proverb…thanks so much for sharing.
April 22, 2014 3:42 pm|
I must admit I was expecting a different ending… 🙂 Trust and openness is so important in a relationship…love how you have portrayed it.
