Magpie Tale-A Woman's Defeat!

Finally, they met and have the chance being together.

Each being married to someone else, he/she enjoyed their marriage very much, he is handsome, she is elegant with full lips, they met online, because of common interests on music recording, both of them are surprised to realize that, besides their spouses, they actually find room for extra passion.

As they emailed/texted back and forth, with short and sweet messages, they begin to feel pain, the pain of falling in love with someone outside their marriages, the pain that they could not be together.

Now, a business in common make them both in the same city, her face is red like a young girl as he pulled her close to him and plucked his lips on hers. They spent the night in his hotel room, she forgot about her kids back home, and felt very satisfied to be able to attract a man whose intelligence is 10 times higher than her hubby, and whose age is 15 years younger than herself.

Men always hunger for women. She remembered her mother’s advice, yet failed to resist this affair.

“Ding…..”, his phone rings, still holding her in his arms, he stretched his arm and picks up.

“Hello!” He makes his voice calm.


“Dear, I’m perfectly fine. I am about to call you, darling, miss you a ton.” He talks to his wife, who is back at home, hundreds of miles away.

She pushes him away as he puts down the phone.

Men are liars! The thought makes her feel sick being where she is.

But he won’t let her go. His big and powerful body makes her out of breath…again, they did it, under his unstoppable energy.

He took her to fancy restaurants, and toured famous attractions whenever they finish their job by 3pm every day.

They did not take any photo shots, fearing leaving evidence and getting caught.

10 days of romance is about to be over.

Before they depart, he treats her a cup of wine in his hotel room, and had each other one last time…

After each goes back home, she could not reach him any more…his phone number has changed, and his email address blocked hers, and he is gone.

She feels guilty whenever she looks at the same wine cup back home, recalling her time with that guy.

He never gives her his real name.

And she would sip her cup of wine, sigh, and let her tears fall…

A woman’s defeat!

She remembers her mother’s words, and writes soulful love songs, for herself, and for all women who share the similar experiences…

She never allowed any other men to know her heart ever since.


I am a new hand at writing romance, please forgive me, this is a fiction.


  1. The game will never be equal..women/! But the old story is ever new!! You got it!!

  2. This story made me sad, but at the same time, I couldn't help thinking as I was reading it that it was sexy, too.

    "Men always hunger for women." This made me laugh out loud because it's true! I think a lot of us don't know what power we have over men. We can use that to our advantage, then maybe, we won't lose.

  3. I agree with Lyn! This is one (sad) story which will never be old- no matter how much time goes by..

    Then again, forget the one who forgets you!

    Many Hugs xxx

  4. sigh! too true. But how interesting that he blocked her emails and changed his number.

  5. Forbidden excitement generally parks itself in a dead end...effectively illustrated!

  6. Good tale - sounds like nonfiction!

  7. Good story from a difficult situation.

  8. The story line remains the same... unending, but newly discovered by each of its villains.

  9. It may well be a work of fiction here but there are many men and women who go through this experience. The woman rarely wins! But if she were to, what would she win?

    When I was much younger I recall a friend of my mother telling her (which she then repeated to me!) that she occasionally had 'flings' with younger men but that she never allowed herself to get emotionally involved and that it spiced up her marriage. As a 20 something, I was shocked!

    Good take.

  10. Well-written morality tale; unless there's a 'happy for now' ending/more to this tale, most romance markets won't touch this.

    As a straight-up fiction piece, this is excellent.

  11. this flowed well, the narration vivid. like Steve says, as a straightup fiction, this is quite excellent! :)

  12. Oh, so true. The woman never wins. Nice take on the magpie!

  13. Sad but true! you're a realist :)

  14. So much can be traced back to appetites...trouble and ecstasy!

    Thank you for the kind words, my dear. I'm happy to have your eyes on the page!

  15. WoW! This is some read. Fiction or not...this is incredibly real. Betrayal is such a bitter pill to swallow. Nobody wins. Very nicely done.

    You might like a poem I wrote on such a subject here:

  16. thats how majority of cyber romances end.

    you made the story come alive.
