Cheaters- Inspired by WritingLover
Cheaters are selfish, it's true. Cheaters are desperate, needy, unfulfilled, greedy dissatisfied creatures. Once upon a time a man- good, kind, loving and giving- made a very bad decision. A poor decision. One that would have negative repercussions for years to come. One that would cost him the love of one of five children and the years-long, careful rebuilding of another's love and trust.
His poor, desperate selfish decision would cost more than he ever fathomed. Financially, emotionally, socially and psychologically his decision took its toll, took him and all it involved in a downward spiral nearly impossible to climb out of.
Some learn from their mistakes. Some never do. Some move on. Some never can. Some carry the weight of ill-made decisions for their eternity.
As well they should.
