Consequences (3)

By Emmeline Bisiikwa, Uganda Avoiding Peter and Diane became second nature to Sue following their meeting. She blocked their calls and pretended not to be home anytime they came around. She had expected things to be harder since she spent every waking minute with either or both prior to their betrayal. Knowing their schedules served a purpose though. She picked […]
