Jane Jago’s Daily Drabble – One Hundred and Forty-Two

Eavesdroppers never hear good of themselves. But he listened anyway…

The first female voice was laced with casual malice. “My dear, you are under no obligation to be faithful to him.”

A man chuckled. “Indeed you are not. May I offer my services?”

He recognised the third voice and his heart leapt into his throat.

It was his young and lovely wife. Who laughed as he waited for her to betray him.

“You fools. Of course I am under an obligation. He is a kind and faithful husband. And fidelity is all I have to give him.”

He breathed again.
