Lottery Win… or Loss?

When we won the lottery, we bought a grand, new house in Cheshire and furnished it expensively.

We splashed out on a yacht and journeyed to exclusive and affluent resorts, spending giddily.

We were living the dream; no money worries, doing things we’d always fantasised about, laughing like newly in-love teenagers.

He doesn’t know I saw them together.  Beautiful, vacuous, calculating bitch!

Silly old goat really believes she fancies him.

She can’t give you what we’ve had all these years.  How can you be so gullible, so conceited, so insensitive?  

Oh, how I wish I’d never bought that damned ticket.

    I think her anger is directed at both her husband and the vacuous bitch but she still loves him (unfortunately for her) so he gets off a bit lightly and she would rather have forgone the money than lose him. I thought this was a well written insight into the mind and feelings of a jilted woman. Plenty of feeling and intensity.
