Ending an Affair - A short story by: The Corrupt Author Cedric Long

Yeah, It’s a sin but she’s in love. Ruby Fletcher drives slower than the other cars on the

highway. She wasn’t in a hurry; wasn’t completely sure if she should do this. The hot car

has no AC, all the windows are down. The wind blows her sundress up her legs.

Fletcher has been involved in an intimate relationship with a pastor for 8 months now.

Fletcher knows his daughter is at daycare and the wife is at work. The pastor’s first lady

was a teller at the bank Fletcher held an account. Making deposits has become so

uncomfortable. The wife smiles every time she sees Fletcher come in. Fletcher is forced to

hold a fake conversation; while her conscience eats away at her. She tried getting in

Another line a few times but The first lady’s angry face did not shy from expressing she was

Offended. If she only knew my secret. So Fletcher suffers in that line; waiting and hoping

not to be struck by lightning. Fletcher pulls the car over on the side of the road. She had

been a minister at Word Way Ministries for 3 years now. Parked on the side of the highway

Fletcher expects to hear from God; If she could just hear the smallest voice she’d turn

around. But God was silent. The car continues on the way to his home. She tells herself,

“When I get there I’ll be strong enough to end this.”

But she loves him, so she wasn’t sure she could go through with it. Would seeing that

handsome face cause her to fall into his arms and make love again? No, this time it’s

different this time she was strong. The car pulls up on the street in front of the brick home.

Fletcher sees him peeping out of the blinds. Butterflies fill her belly; just a glimpse of his

eyes through the blinds weakens her. She was madly in love with him. She sat outside for

10 minutes just thinking. After pondering what to do Fletcher makes a final decision. Fixing

her hair in the mirror then reapplying her lipstick, she’s ready. She was willing to share him

with his wife-

-but no one else.

Fletcher found out a week ago that the pastor had been having an affair with Alice in the

quire. He shouldn’t have done that. Fletcher reaches in the armrest and pulls out the

chrome revolver. She gets out of the car, walks up the driveway, and rings the doorbell. She

says to herself, “Osceola prison here I come.”

The pastor says, “It’s open, come on in.”
