There are some moments in life you remember like they were yesterday. This was one of those moments.

It was the Tuesday after I had had my “catch up” with S. I was sitting at my desk laughing with the other girls in my office. We were still joking around about all my mosquitoes bites that covered my body resembling someone with a bad case of chicken pox.
It was a very slow day in the office, with all my work completed I decided I’d jump on Facebook to see what everyone else was up to. As I logged on I noticed I had a pm notification. As I opened it I saw it was from the last person on earth I thought it would be from, L.

“Hi. Obviously you are aware things aren’t too crash hot between S and I. I looked through his call log and noticed he had called you Saturday night and also I found one text message that indicated he was planning to catch up with you. Are you able to tell me what happened Saturday night/Sunday morning? I don’t care how hurtful any of it is I just need to know, its make it or break it time for us”

Ohhhhhhh Shit!!! I sat there shocked. S had told me they had been broken up for over a week!! What a lying little shit!
First thing I did was grab my phone and sent S a message to call me ASAP. All of a sudden like a sign from up above the fire alarm went off. We were being all evacuated to the car park when S called me. I explained L had messaged me and told him what it said. I told him how disappointed I was that number one, he felt the need to lie to me, and number two, the position he had now put me in!

While a mass of fire fighters flocked to our building S and I talked about what he wanted me to do. Do I message her back or not? Do I lie to her or tell her the truth? In the end I asked him one simple question “Do you want to be with her?” His response was “Yes I guess I’d like to give it another shot”. So with that I agreed to do the most stupid thing  I could ever have done, I lied for him.

I messaged L back explaining how S had called me drunk and how concerned I was about him. I told her that I had gotten some water in him and we chatted then I drove him home. I told her she had nothing to worry about, although we were ex’s there wasn’t feelings there anymore and we were just good friends and that she needs to have some trust in her relationship as if there is no trust there is no relationship. These words would haunt me and eventually come back to bite me in the ass.


One thought on “CHAPTER FOUR: Caught”

  1. I can understand why you didn’t tell the truth. When he told you that he wanted to be with her again you didn’t want to mess that up. You were a better person for doing that. He on the other hand should never have put you in that position, he should have told her the truth and see what happened after that. He didn’t have the courage to face her with the truth, it wasn’t your job to do that.
