Calling time

Josh closed his eyes. ‘How the hell did I end up living in a soap opera?’

‘Is that a pathetic attempt at gaslighting?’

‘I’m not the only one who slept away, but I’m the only one who’s repented.’

‘Repented?’ Sarah hissed. ‘I got a limp bunch of flowers and an unapologetic apology.’

‘You started this game.’

‘I might have been first to bed, but not to flirting.’

‘Flirting isn’t infidelity.’

‘It signals intent.’

‘So, you thought you’d land a first strike?’


‘We can’t keep doing this; playing the same scene. We need to forgive and forget or call time.’

A drabble is a story of exactly 100 words.

Oh, hard times for this couple, Rob. It's a good question, actually - do you forgive and move on (I honestly doubt you actually forget)? I like the way you use dialogue here, too.
