The Unsuspected Lover Part 1.2

The night ended as it usually did with conversation of the days events,but my mind was still back at the previous statement made by my wife. Unable to close the evening without one last question I turn slowly,”Rebecca who’s Chris?” I had to ask! Pulling her glasses down from her face and blushing somewhat…why honey, are you jealous? I wanted to get angry,but my gut told me to relax it was nothing. As she went on to explain that Chris was her new boss and was just wanting a work horse to ride so we could get this merger complete. I let the conversation rest for the night and rested in comfort believing what my wife had told me.

The following morning I was up early getting dressed for work when I saw that Rebecca’s phone was flashing so I decided to investigate. There it was, a text from Chris that read,” I appreciate your staying late last night! Your hard work will not go unnoticed,C!” I felt so silly allowing my mind to play tricks on me. Today was a busy day for me, my first stop was going by to see my therapist and bestfriend, mark. I kissed my wife goodbye and headed out for the day. The shitty ride to the city was underway and the entire ride I was pre-occupied thinking of how I could fix my own insecurities about my marriage. The walk to marks office seemed so long, I just couldn’t understand why I had become this man. I’m secure in my job, I know my marriage is good and I know I puts it down in bed. I guess I’m just going crazy because I screwed up once. Well I finally arrived at mark’s office and I could here my name as I was approaching the door. “Paul, what’s up guy! How are you?” Immediately my eyes shifted and he caught it. “Paul,
man what’s wrong with you?” Nothing I reassured him, I just thought Rebecca was cheating,but it’s fine she’s not.(Mark looking at me in shock)”Dude, Rebecca is the sweetest woman I know and would never do anything like that, now your ass…um yea ALL DAY DOG!!! Yea man I found she’s been working in this big company merger with her new boss. It’s all good man,I’m going to work. See you for lunch, same spot on 49th!

I worked through most of the morning and decided I would go surprise Rebecca at work, but she must have been in a pretty heated meeting so I didn’t bother to go inside. I left the flowers with her assistant and met up with mark for lunch.
