Flash Fiction: The Trainer


Alex picked up the bear and violently threw it. 

How could she make such a fool of him?  He grabbed another of her precious glass bears and hurled it into the fireplace.  He was going to ask her to marry him, instead he found her wrapped in the sheets with someone else. 

He should’ve seen this coming, she had spent most nights at the gym with her trainer and she wasn’t losing any weight.  Turns out the only training being done was in the bedroom. 

How could he be so stupid?  The signs were all there, they hadn’t been intimate in a long time.  She always complained about feeling fat and ugly, hence the gym and trainer.  She didn’t look like she was feeling hideous when he found the two of them together. 

Of course, he never thought he’d have to worry about a trainer named Jill.
