Ralph and Susan work out of their home. Ralph’s office is down stairs near the front door. Susan is up stairs away from all the activity of the home. She’s not disturbed by Ralph’s clients. Instead of interrupting each other, they text one another for availability.
Susan texted Ralph, U home?
He text back, Yea
She texted back, See u n few.
Susan ascended down the stairs, “Ralph that Fing….” Susan stopped in her tracks. She wasn’t greeted by Ralph.
“Hello Susan,” Said Pastor George as he gave her a hug.
“George!” Said Ralph.
“What? The by passers might think the rumor is true by me giving Susan a hug.”
Susan released herself from George’s arms. Walked up to Ralph, “Why didn’t you tell me two days ago.”
Susan noticed the intensity look in Ralph’s eyes. “Ralph I’m not going to break or die on you. All I need to do is do calm things, eat healthier and exercise. I got this.” Said Susan.
“Instead of standing her by the front door let’s sit down in the living room. The walked in to find fruit, nuts, seeds and coffee on the table. Michelle, Pastor George’s wife walked up to Susan and gave her a hug. “I’m so sorry this is happening to you.”
“Me to. And to George. Ralph’s best friend since the third grade.” Said Susan. The two women smiled at each other.
“Thank you” Said Susan.
“We all need to eat healthier. Except for Ralph, he is Mr. Healthy.” Smile Michelle. Everyone got their coffee and a plate full of treats.
“We all know that Connie is broken and is having a difficult time in her life. I’m not saying this gives her any reason to do what she has done. And seems to be continuing on that Susan and I are having an affair.” Said Pastor George.
Susan felt her iPhone vibrate. She looked down at the text message. Groan out loud. “Great! The biggest busy body of our church is on her way over.” Said Susan
