Devastating News

“I’m devastated to hear about Douglas and you,” Liz said to Ronda as they sat outside of Liz’s home.  Everyone else had gone to the baseball game.

Ronda held back the tears.  “After fifteen years of marriage, we’re getting divorced.  Who would have expected that?”

Liz squeezed her hand.  “I can’t imagine how you must be feeling.”

“Right now I’d like to kill them.”

“Do you know who she is?”

Ronda wanted to scream, it’s your bloody daughter!  She’d seen them going into the tepee one evening.  “No,” she lied.

“Well, whoever she is, I hope she burns in Hell.”

    • Hi Susan. The names aren’t muddled. It’s Ronda who was betrayed by her husband, Douglas and Liz’s daughter. That’s why she wanted to scream to Liz that it was Liz’s daughter who was having the affair with Douglas but she didn’t. Instead, she lied and said that she didn’t know who it was. Hope this helps 🙂


  1. Oh dear, I see the end of a friendship. What is Liz to do, would she side against her daughter in favour of her friend? Douglas needs a real good kick in the behind.

    • Yes, what will Liz do? It’s a tough call. A friendship is at stake. If I were in her shoes, I would side with the injured party (Ronda). What Liz’s daughter did was wrong and hurtful to say the least. And you’re right about Douglas.
