I Accidentally Found My Husband’s Secret Phone in the Toilet Tank. What I Read There Made My Blood Freeze

While cleaning the bathroom one Tuesday evening, I discovered a burner phone in the toilet tank. After unlocking it with our wedding date, I was horrified to find explicit messages from Lola, detailing plans to meet Matt at a fancy restaurant. My hands shook as I realized the extent of his betrayal.

I pretended to stay calm as Matt returned home, chatting about work and dinner plans. I confided in my friends Nicole, Tara, and my lawyer brother Lucas, who gathered at Nicole’s house. “Revenge,” I declared, “but it has to be smart.” Lucas reminded me to protect myself legally.

Friday arrived, and Matt left for another “work meeting.” With Kelly’s help, I secured a table at the restaurant next to Matt’s. My friends and I, fueled by adrenaline, waited for him to arrive with Lola. When they walked in, I stood up, raising my glass. “A toast to you,” I said, “to my husband who thought he could cheat and get away with it.”
Gasps filled the room as I placed the burner phone on the table. “Next time, find a better hiding spot.” Matt and Lola’s faces turned pale, and I turned to Lola, “Meet my husband. Married to me.”

I left with my friends, feeling empowered. “To new beginnings,” Nicole toasted, and we headed to a bar, ready to celebrate this small victory. I had reclaimed control of my life.
