The Truth – Dark

His eyes hardened. He spat a curse and shoved past her. The slammed door shook the walls. Every drop of energy drained from her body, leaving her numb. She shuffled to the cabinet and pulled out the whiskey, took a shot straight from the bottle then curled up on the couch. The second shot burned a little less going down. Numbing as it went.

Numb. Numb felt pretty damn good.

    I guess I’m a sucker for the ‘happy’ endings.

    This one still works…both do in fact, but I just like the light one more.

    Well done.

    Yes, I like this one the best because you write so fluently about the pain she was feeling – it wouldn’t just go that easily with a sassy shake of her shoulders. Besides, I love a good old dark and twisted ending!! Liked the experiment, good idea x

    Dark endings the winner for me.

    Not because I’m a half empty glass type of guy…just the conflict and drama is better, darker.

    Like Chocolate.

    I like the darker ending. I’ve also read the Paris Wife and like you, thought the emotional impact of betrayal could be further explored. This ending felt more satisfying though I’m sure there were good reasons for the author to leave things open too.
