This is story number 3 in my Shuffle The Game series. The song that inspired this was Break Even by The Script. I think I did an ok job with relating the story to the song but you decide. (yes I know this story is VERY short. I left myself some room to expand on the idea) Enjoy.

While I’m over seas shooting my gun, shes back home using some other guy’s gun. The moment I get onto the plane for each deployment, my heart breaks thinking I’m leaving her all alone on that military base. Guess I was wrong. When I’m not in bed with her, she’s sleeping with our neighbor. I never wanted to believe that something like this could ever happen to me, now I know it happens because it’s happened to all my good friends, but never thought it would happen to me. The love of my life, cheating on me with another man. The story of this is quite simple actually. You see I’m an infantry man in the United States Marine Corps so I’m shipped out over seas a lot. One day on my 6th deployment I caught word that we were going home early. I was over whelmed with excitement. While all my other friends and fellow core man were calling their wives, I thought I might surprise my love. About a week later I landed in the states. On my way to the military base I stopped off to buy flowers and candy for her. I planed to open the door, walk in with open arms, sweep her off her feet and bring her to the bedroom. As I went to open the door, I looked through the window, clothes everywhere. Leading to the bedroom. There was a broken vase and glass shattered everywhere. I grabbed my pistol out of my back pocket as I slid through the narrow space in the door and carefully walked to the bedroom door. I heard some screams coming from behind the door. With my pistol at the ready I kicked in the door. What I saw was disturbing. A man on top of my wife, she was faced down to the bed as he restrained her whilst he did his business. When he heard the door come down he looked back at me. He was wearing a mask. With my pistol pointed at him I scream "GET THE HELL OFF MY WIFE YOU SICK ASS!" he jumped off taking a blanket with him to cover himself. "Wait wait David it’s me, Gabe!!" he said as he ripped off his mask. My wife was looking at me in shock. I was so confused. With my gun still pointed at him I moved my eyes to her "what’s going on here Addison?" She was speechless. My eyes moved back to him. "Get your ass up and get dressed. And get the fuck out of my house before I change my mind about killing you. NOW!" he quickly scrambled for his clothes, got dressed and ran off. I put my pistol away. In a calm voice I asked "how long has this been going on?" "What..." "Do you think I’m stupid? How long have you been cheating on me Addison!!?" "Please David let me explain first." after many moments of silence I quietly said "you have 30 seconds. Go." "The doctor called the day after you shipped out. Apparently it was a false negative. I wasn’t pregnant. I was so heart broken. I knew you would have been more devastated if you found out. She also said that you were sterile." my eyes shot open as I looked at her in disbelief. "We could never have a baby together and I knew that would kill you. So I figured since Gabe looked very similar to you, I thought maybe if he got me pregnant, then the baby could pass off as your child and everything would be alright." "There must have been another way." she shook her head. "We tried. The doctor said that the only way that it could work was if we had intercourse. I couldn’t bear look at him in the eye as he did it. I felt guilty enough as is. I asked him to wear the mask so I wouldn’t see his face and I laid face down so I wouldn’t have to see his eyes. Without seeing him I could at least pretend it was you. I swear this was nothing except to get me pregnant. It meant nothing more. I did this for you." "Don’t you dare say you did this for me? I.... I...." I couldn’t say anything else. Everything hit me at once. I don’t know how long I sat on the edge of the bed for or how long we were silent. I thought for awhile. I had enough faith in her that she wouldn’t cheat on me. Now I have to have faith in me that she won’t do it again. That and the help of some cameras. Breaking the silence I said "I forgive you."
