The cash is sitting on the table. I watch on the closed-circuit camera set-up to see if she’ll reach for it. I trust her – we’ve been together for five years. I hope she won’t do it.
Trust is essential in a relationship. It’s the one thing that will make me cut out, lack of trustworthiness.
I’m just about to get up and go back into the room when she does it. It takes her under two seconds to grab and pocket the cash.
I go to confront her: “Why did you do it?” I ask.
“Why were you watching me?” she counters.
She’s got a point.
