She overheard the couple whispering in the adjoining room and realized she didn’t really want to know of her husband’s affair. His secretary; everything she wasn’t. A perfect hour glass figure, long blond hair, and a face straight out of Vogue.
Stood in the corridor, her feet didn’t want to move. Any minute now they would be kissing and there was nothing she could do about it. But she needed to be closer, and with a grand gesture, she listened to what they were saying.
‘It’s beautiful, what a gorgeous ring.’ Her simpering voice echoed in the immense corridor.
‘Do you think she’ll like it. I’ve been promising my wife an eternity ring for years, but they all seemed the same. Thank you so much for your help.’
‘She will love it,’ she said.
A blush ran through her cheeks and she turned back down the corridor.
