Ella walked inside my office and said "I've been knocking on Mr Stokes office for almost five minutes with no reply"
"He is not around" I replied
"Okay. I just want to drop these files"
"Go in and drop them"
She came out about a minute later with Jason's phone in her hand "It was ringing"
I collected the phone from her, dropped it on my table and she walked out of my office.
Normally, I don't check Jason's calls but, I don't know what came over today, my mind just told me to check the caller.
I picked up his phone, unlocked it and saw Cynthia's number flashing on it. Fifteen missed calls and a message.
I clicked the message and couldn't believe my eyes when I saw what Cynthia texted my husband
"Do you get the picture that you asked for. I know you will like it"
I hurriedly went to Jason's gallery and gasped when I saw Cynthia's naked picture on it
"No! No! No!" I started panicking "this is impossible. It's a lie"
"It's not" my subconscious said to me "that was what she was talking about some days ago"
"Noooooooo! I screamed and angrily threw Jason's phone at the wall. I do not want to believe that Jason was cheating on me with the person that I trusted most...with the person that I thought was my best friend.
My relationship with Jason was one big fabricated lie. I thought when the reality crashed into me. Everything I knew about Jason wasn't true because the Jason that I knew wouldn't cheat on me
I tried to calm myself down and when I was calmed enough, I called Cynthia through the office phone
"Hey Lexi" she said joyfully and I gave her the evil eye even though she couldn't see me
"Meet me in my office now. Come along with your phone"
"Lexi what is..."
I put the phone down, got out of my seat in order to pick Jason's phone up and counted the minutes until she stepped inside my office
"Lexi why are you crying?" She asked worriedly when she entered my office
Crying? I wasn't even aware that I was crying. I wiped the tears off with the back of my hand and looked at Cynthia who was looking at me worriedly
"Your phone?" I asked and stretched out my hand
"What do you want to do with my phone?"
"Your phone?" I asked again. She handed it to me and I passed it back to her "unlock it"
"Lexi what is going on?"
"Unlock it and give it back to me"
She unlocked it and passed it to me
I clicked on her phone, saw Jason's number on it, nodded my head and went to her message
I raised up my hand and stopped her from talking
"What do you think you're doing?" I asked when I saw the message and the picture "Sexting my husband"
She looked at me horrifically and said "What are you talking about?"
I got out of my seat and threw her phone at her "You know exactly what I'm talking about"
She checked the picture and dropped her phone as if it had burned her but I wasn't moved with that.
"Stop the drama. It's not working. I caught you red handed"
"I have...no idea.. what this is. Believe me Lexi. I swear"
"The only things that am believing are what you sent to my husband"
"I have no idea what this is"
"I wasn't expecting you to say something different. That day at the bar, he was the one you were talking about"
"He is not"
I rushed at her and slapped her twice across the face. "I hate you" I said between gritted teeth
I raised up my hand again in order to slap her but Jason stepped inside my office.
