The Egyptain Affair: A short story about love, deception, and insanity in pre-revolutionary Egypt

25 Feb

The place, Cairo, Egypt. The time, a few years before the Arab Spring.

When a man discovers his wife is having an affair, self-restraint and reason fly out of the window. Humiliation rests on his shoulders like a burden too heavy to bear. And the onus of doing something about it lies squarely on him. The universe will not let him rest or have his peace until he acts to set the balance straight. Even if he wanted to look the other way and take one for the team, he would still wind up facing his demons with no option but to react. To do something. Anything. Even the unthinkable.
