Flash Fiction, Friday Fictioneers - The Ever-forgiving wife

Flash Fiction, Friday Fictioneers - The Ever-forgiving wife

Jean watched his ex-girlfriend Irene berating her boyfriend Joseph from his boat. He couldn't hear her from this distance but he pitied Joseph.  He remembered being in Joseph's shoes often. Initially, he couldn't figure out how to get rid of Irene. He was a married man. 

But Irene had been terrified when he had mooted the plan to kill his wife Anne. She had immediately cut off from him in horror. What Irene hadn't known was that it was Anne who came up with this scheme to get rid of her when Jean had confessed his secret affair to her. 

Author's Note: Written for the weekly Friday Fictioneers challenge hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. This week's prompt is from Fatima Fakier Deria. Please find other entries here.

  1. Dear Jai,

    It sounds like Jean's lucky to make it out of this one alive.

    Shalom,

  2. I learned a new use for the word "moot." Never saw it used as a verb before, so I looked it up, and thanks for adding it to my vocabulary :) Great story, too.

  9. Nice twist. Often the suspects are the ones who we perceive as victim.

  12. Anne is not one to mess with. I wonder how Jean is doing now? Is he on some kind of probation? Unexpected twist, well done.
