Friday Fictioneers: Girlfriends for Life

Sandy was apprehensive about lunch with three of her oldest friends. Carrie’s husband had flirted with her for years and she always laughed it off. She had never considered that he might be unfaithful.

Last week she saw him at a restaurant having lunch with a much younger woman. It could have been a business lunch she supposed, but there was something in his body language that told her otherwise.

She felt compelled to tell Carrie and consulted the other two friends in their group. They decided, that like college, marrying, and raising children they would get through this together.

  1. I understand the fear of telling the friend… One is always afraid this could backfire. However when one has a sold sisterhood… that changes things.


  2. Girlfriends forever! Having a group that knows everything about each other would certainly bother the husbands. For good things – it’s great, but for sad things, mistakes, or regrets it could eventually cause hard feelings. Cute story!


  3. Carrie probably knew about her husband’s affair. Because husband / wife knows when either is not respecting the relationship. Good that Carrie has her friends as support group.


  4. A good and well-written story, Dawn. I also wondered if they should let her find out for herself. In fact, she might already know and is overlooking it on purpose. The thing that complicates this is the threat of diseases that can be passed around. Some people don’t have the sense they were born with. —- Suzanne
