Catherine found herself in the supermarket’s parking lot on a peaceful evening, contemplating a spontaneous coffee date with her husband. Aware of his routine stop at the store on his way home, she dialed his number, anticipating a delightful rendezvous.
To her dismay, the call went straight to voicemail, and a text from her husband revealed he was still at work. Perplexed, she parked her car, retrieved her shopping bag, and ventured into the lot. Among the parked cars, an SUV caught her eye, possibly her husband’s. Yet, he was nowhere in sight, triggering thoughts of his recent late work hours, secret calls, and peculiar behavior.
Determined to unravel the mystery, Catherine returned to her car, patiently awaiting her husband’s arrival. Soon, an old, modest car pulled up next to the SUV, revealing her husband, Dylan, clad in worn-out attire. Shocked and bewildered, she struggled to comprehend the scene unfolding before her.
Witnessing Dylan change into his work suit and transfer to the SUV, Catherine rushed home, choosing silence over confrontation.
