The Meeting

Scenario 1

A camera shutter winked. Their encounter wasn’t secret anymore. He grabbed her; his passion evident. She slipped into the shadow out of his grasp.

“I can’t…”

“You said you love me.”

“I don’t anymore.”

“What? Problems at home?”

Scenario 2

The passion of her embrace left him breathless. Their last secret encounter she’d said. A shutter clicked. He looked over his shoulder. Was that a camera? A shadow crossed his face. He’d almost escaped.

Or was he paranoid?
