Friends David and Phil are having a night out. Both men are married and have kids. David has a secret and wants to tell Phil. The secret: David had an affair with another woman. Even though it is a short story, it is well written. All characters well portrayed, with good background, storyline flowing. Through flashbacks we see how the affair initially started, progressed and finally ended. The revelation at the end left me thinking: wow! I did not see that coming!
I don't usually like short stories but this was well-written--though sad...
