Sitting on the back patio in a fine summer morning, sipping lemony drinks, Jake confessed to adultery. Penny didn’t react.
Jake waited, but seeing no response, continued.
Unable to meet her eyes, Jake said he wanted to be with his girl friend, but did not want to leave Matthew.
Playing along, Penny suggested they go for ‘counselling’.
Jake shook his head;
“Penny, I love Cyndi. I want to be with her. You can have the house, the car, but I want Matthew.”
Penny pretended to think about it.
What ran through her mind was: Could life really be this easy?
