Gwen and Phil had been married for twenty one years when he began his affair with Slutina.
Gwen knew ‘something’ was going on, but thought to ‘ride it out’.
The kids were grown, the house was empty.
Now, each evening when she arrived from work, even emptier, because Phil didn’t come home until past ten with a story.
There was a position available at her company which required traveling, and she applied, and being the best candidate, was now launched.
She told Phil over breakfast she’d be doing ‘a bit’ of travelling for her new position.
Phil was elated. This gave him more time with Slutina.
