Chocolate Cookies

Chocolate cookies finally broke the ice. While savouring them, she talked about Amar, their affair of five years, and how she was forced into this marriage. She loved him, and did not want to cheat me. As I wondered why she did not tell me this before marriage, I cheated her off the last cookie.

My first attempt at 55 fiction. Tried this for kgaf, but I think I may get the hang of this. Had to try really hard to get this down to exactly 55 words from the 60 words I penned down earlier πŸ™‚
