|Clare has found some lipstick on her husbands shirt. has he been cheating....?|
"Get out of my house," Clare spat out the words, harshly. Her eyes filled with fury. "What,s up with you!" Sam chuckled nervously, his eyes rolled from side to side, showing the whites like a panicked animal. "Just get out of my house, her anger rose, I don,t want you anymore, Get out!" clare screamed, saking in a thin pale fury. "What have i done?" Sam hissed with such savagery. The rage of discovered treason flared in her blue eyes. "You two-timing cheat!" cried clare uncontrollably. "What on earth are you on about?" Sam shrugged defiantly. "This!" she held up his white shirt, and on it was a clear, bright red lipstick stain. There was a sour, bitter taste in his mouth that was no longer mere nervousness. This was fear, cold and solid and strong, shaking him, catching at his breath. Coils of fright tightened inside her, her lips trembled. "How could you", Clare wimpered. She hung her head, tears forming on her soft lashes. "I thought you loved me?" Clare whispered softly. Suddenly she began to cry, hard, hurting sobs that seemed to have been buried inside her like a stone. "I do"< he sympathised, with a touch of saddness in his voice, and shame. "I,ve always loved you, he appologised, and I always will" his eyes damp with emotion. Clare fetched a decanter and poured herself a small, medicinal brandy. He studied her movements with a quick ache in his heart. She ran a comb through her dark curls and, watching her sam,heartbroken, she felt a melting troughout her body, as her heart pinned for her first love. "Why?" murmured clare, her heart fluttered needlessly. Her eyes misted over with betrayal. "I,m sorry" his head hung in shame. The pale blue eyes showed deep saddness. She felt panic creep into her throat. her thoughts turnt to the children, how would they take it. huh, family, clare thought wearily, the words burnt in her chest. her eyes suddenly softened, one corner of her mouth lifted wryly. "I don,t want to talk about this now"< she spoke, frowning with her right eyebrow and lifting her left.The lines of her mouth still bitter. she moved back from him with that quick turn away look she had, and in the lantern light of the kitchen her eyes were big and bottomless dark. Sam cocked an eyebrow at her. his eyes popped wide, his mouth fell open, his body slumped as he left the room, dis-graced and dis-heartened. She drank some more brandy, in silence as she watched his life-less slump of a body, slitter away like a wyley snake. her eyes slanted towards the kitchen window, she gazed blankly at the gentle blowing trees, deep blake shadows against the moonlight sky. the stars shone brightly,oblivious of her pain. The tears started to roll down Clares cheeks, dropping carelessly onto the window sill. How could he?, was the question turning over and over in her mind. Her eyes held a numbed look, she stood very still, almost life-like. A pinched look around her mouth, the one thought constantly on her mind. Clares eyes began to flicker restlessly. She knocked a glass off the table smashing it on the floor shattering into many pieces. Her face suddenly blanked as she fell to the floor with a clatter. Sam rushed in "Clare,Clare"< he screamed. His face took on a worried look, hie eyes panic sticken, beads of sweat rolled of his forehead. The muscles round his mouth tightened. He slapped her face softly trying to revive her. Her eyes flickered as she woke. "Please",Sam pleaded, "please can we try again, I,m so sorry", he smiled appologetically. "We,ll see", Clare smiled lovingly, "One day at a time" "I do love you," Sam kissed her passionately. Tweet
