“Sherie? Is that you?” Sheryl removed her limited edition sun glasses to be sure she wasn’t seeing things.
Sherie had been her friend and business partner. Until Sherie disappeared with her investment and Sheryl’s fiance.
That was two years ago. And she couldn’t believe she was seeing her again.
“Hello Sheryl. Long time.” Sherie looked around nervously as if seeking for an escape.
Sheryl snorted a laugh, “Yeah. Long time indeed.”
As Sherie made to dash away, Sheryl blocked her with an, “Oh no you don’t Cherie. You owe me an explanation, Mademoiselle. Or is it ‘Madam’ now?”
“Look Sheryl I don’t want trouble —”
“Really? Your actions in times past contradicts that. Where is my money?”
“I don’t have it.”
“You know what? Lawyer up, Sherie. Because you going to hear from me soon”, Sheryl said as she wore her sunglasses again.
Sheryl walked to her husband’s limousine as the suited guard opened the door for her to climb in.
“Hello Beautiful”, her husband said with a loving smile.
His smile helped calm her upset feeling a bit.
“Hello Dear”, She replied with a small smile.
“What’s wrong?” Her husband, Christian asked with concern.
“I stumbled into someone from my past who betrayed my trust”
“I’m sorry, dear”, Christian was sympathetic, as he rubbed her back to calm and comfort her.
“You know, I don’t think I will ever ask her. But what will be her excuse for robbing me?”
“There’s will never be a good enough reason or excuse for betrayal such as that. She did what she did based on who she was. That has little or nothing to do with you, Baby. So don’t take it personal.”
“Thanks Love. I’m not taking it personal. Which is why I’m suing her.”
“So what’s for dinner?” Sheryl asked her besotted husband.
“Well, that depends on you, my love. Goodness forbid I order the chefs to prepare something that isn’t your current craving.” He said with a twinkle in his eyes as her cradled her slight baby bump.
“Oh you!”, She said as they both laughed.
