When I first heard the story, I was beyond shocked. I mean, I’ve always heard of similar situations, but not once did I think it would hit close to home. A close family member revealed to me that she was sleeping with another family member’s husband! My eyes widened in disbelief and my mouth formed dry. I couldn’t believe that she could be so scandalous and had the nerve to act like she was proud of her actions.
One year, we were all hanging out at one of our traditional family reunions, when a cousin of mine approached me.
It had been a while since I last saw her, so I figured I would take the time to chat with her and catch up on some things. During the midst of our conversation, I noticed that something had her attention. She didn’t seem as in tuned as she once was. She was frustrating me because at first, I thought she was being rude. But when I followed her eyes, I noticed that she was staring and more like flirting with the husband of one of our very own cousin. I hoped my eyes were playing tricks on me, so I didn’t take it as much, at first. After we were able to finish up our conversation, we went off to mingle with other family members. When the event was just about over, she ran up to me again and told me she needed to talk to me about something important. I agreed and when she revealed what was on her mind, I nearly jumped out of my pants. She confirmed my assumptions and told me that she had been sleeping with our cousin’s husband behind her back! She didn’t even sound remorseful. Said that the affair had been taking place for some time; even before the two got married.
