Sally and Kate became close friends after Sally started planning Kate’s wedding. Kate hosted a girls’ night and invited Sally since they had become friends. However, the friendship crossed the line after Kate’s fiance, Brian, made advances on Sally. They eventually slept together and had an affair the whole time she was planning their wedding.

“Kate? It’s Sally. Please talk to me.” Sally said in a shaky voice that betrayed her emotions. This was the 50th voice note she sent without a single reply.
She hadn’t slept for almost three days since the video of her in the club went viral. Most of her clients had abandoned her and the hate she received from online users couldn’t allow her to be at peace. Her whole world had come crumbling down in a matter of days. She tried to reach out to Kate but she ignored all her calls and texts and emails and voice notes. She even tried to call Brian but he didn’t pick up her calls either.
“Bastard!” She yelled as the phone rang without an answer.
None of her friends came to check on her. She was all alone with her thoughts which were getting darker by the day. Just when she was about to give up, her phone buzzed. Then she saw a WhatsApp notification from Kate. She opened it hurriedly.
“Meet me outside your apartment in 30 minutes.” The text read.
Sally wiped her tear and read the text over and over again until it hit her that Kate had finally replied to her. She quickly sprinted to her feet and made her way to the bathroom. She needed a shower so badly. After the refreshing shower, she poured herself a glass of whiskey to calm her nerves as she waited for her guest.
“I’m outside,” Kate said as soon as Sally answered the phone.
Without wasting any more time, she ran downstairs and met Kate standing beside her car.
“Hi.” She said meekly. Kate ignored her and walked towards the gate. Sally followed her and then took the lead once they entered the gate. “Thank you for coming.”
“I’m not here for pleasantries, Sally. I want answers.”
“I’ll answer anything you want.”
They got to Sally’s apartment and Kate made herself comfortable in a chair next to the door. Sally went to the kitchen and came back with two glasses of whiskey. She handed one to Kate then sat close to her.
“First of all, I’m very sorry for everything. I didn’t do it on purpose. It just happened.”
“Spare me the crap, sweetheart. When did it start?”
It then hit Sally that Brian hadn’t told her the full story or maybe Kate was trying to see if she would lie to her.
“When I was planning your wedding.” She answered.
From the blank expression on Kate’s face, Sally could tell she already knew.
“He came on to me. I was drunk.”
The pair went back and forth about the affair. Two hours and half a bottle of whiskey later, there was a sudden silence. Kate sunk into her seat and seemed to be deep in thought. Sally sat silently anticipating a slap or slew of insults from Kate. However, she just sat there with a defeated look.
“Why didn’t you tell me when you were planning the wedding? I would have never married him.”
“I was scared. He threatened my business.”
Kate was surprisingly graceful despite her once best friend sleeping with her husband. They hugged it out and cried in each other’s arms. Sally even offered to accommodate her if she needed to get away from Brian.
“Speaking of Brian, I have a proposal for you.”
“I want you to be in a throuple with us.”
Sally burst out laughing thinking that Kate was joking but she wasn’t laughing with her.
“You’re serious.” She said
“Did he convince you to do it? I know Brian can be a master manipulator.”
“No, I just think it will be fun.”
It had been almost a month since the video of Sally and Kate arguing in the club went viral. The two ladies had reconciled and were even seen out together on several occasions. Despite the two appearing to have reconciled, social media was still holding a grudge against Sally. In the court of public opinion, she was still the home wrecker who slept with her friend’s fiancé when planning their wedding.
Several media outlets ran stories that fabricated all kinds of stories. They claimed that she had slept with every client’s fiancé when planning their wedding. Some of them tried to reach out to her to get an interview but she declined them. However, after trying and failing to clear her name on her own, she agreed to do an interview with out of the biggest media houses in the region.
“I’m not a home wrecker. I’m a victim.” She started as soon as she introduced herself. “Brian preyed on me when I was in a vulnerable state and threatened me afterwards.”
Kate, who had escorted her to the interview, was welcomed by the interviewer to share her thoughts. She walked into the frame and sat next to Sally. She then grabbed her hand and put it on her lap.
“I think I am the one who should be the angriest at Sally but she’s one of my closest friends. She’s definitely not the monster that she has been made out to be.”
“What happened then? Why were you so rude to Kate at the club? One of your friends almost poured her drink on the poor lady.”
“We were all drinking and emotions ran high. I felt guilty and continue to feel guilty about sleeping with an engaged man. However, for those judging me, you don’t know half the story.”
Things settled down after the interview. People saw Sally in a different light from the one in the viral video. She was sweet, charming, and most importantly, friendly. They actually loved her. Though she struggled to revive her wedding planning business. She was just glad that the public had forgiven her and she could go out without worrying that someone would hurl insults at her.
She also accepted Kate’s proposal of being in a throuple with her and it was actually better than she expected. However, things ended as fast as they started. Sally realized that she was a relationship kind of girl and that the party girl persona that she had adopted was not her thing at all. She met a good guy and began a new life with him that she hoped would lead to her own wedding.
