Lover’s Affairs

“First the rape allegations and now you’re chasing after a married woman! I just can’t take this anymore!”

“Those charges were dropped, buyer’s remorse, Ellie.”

“You’ve done it this time, Donnie.”

“Shut up Leo!”

“So you admit to cheating on me! I love you! I would have given you everything! We’re done. I’ll get my things tomorrow. Don’t be here!”

“Good riddance, take this ugly statue with you.”

“It’s not mine.” Ellie said curtly and left.

Leo offered,“Perhaps it’s a gift from one of your many lovers,
(-scorned).”

“Well invite the beast to dinner, perhaps he’ll tell me whom.”

    I’m glad you found inspiration in my sculpture. Great dialogue in your story and it’s probably because I don’t know the Don Giovanni story, but I was a bit confused as to who was who.

    Thanks! I added an update with a link to a Don Giovanni synopsis for those unfamiliar with Mozart’s opera. That may help.

    this was very good..and especially the conversation..

  4. tedstrutz says:

    I had no clue as to what this was about, but felt the names had to be important, and the last line about the beast was significant. I knew not the story of Don Giovanni… now I do, thanks to the link, and understand your story. Cool.

    Excellent post… I can feel the emotion

  6. I thought for sure she was going to smash him with the statue, so the ending was a surprise to me. I appreciate you ending with “whom” instead of “who”! 🙂

    Really, no opera fans?

  8. pennycoho says:

    Well done, I liked your approach on this one! 🙂

  9. Hey, stopping in to let you know that the link you posted on this week’s 100 word challenge is going to an error page. I can fix the link, I just need to know where it should point to. 🙂

  10. I’ll admit to being confused. The link helped. Thank you.

  11. Interesting story. I could feel her anger with the cad.

  12. Very nice, and though I don’t know the details don Giovanni is of course epic.

  13. Joe Owens says:

    I am ignorant of Don Giovanni also, but this was a tense scene full of drama.

  14. Obviously mistrust here, but I also am not familiar with the name. Could feel the hurt, though.
