Casey thought little of it when her phone buzzed again to announce the arrival of a new message. She was expecting it to be someone wishing her well for the next day. Glass in hand, Casey jokingly shimmied across the hotel room to find pick up the new message, as her bridesmaid remarked on how busy her handset was that evening.
However, the message she actually received instead provoked tears of heartbreak and horror. Alex, it transpired, had not been an honest and committed fiancé. In fact, quite the opposite, he had been getting very intimate with another woman, and Casey had now been sent copies of the X-rated messages he had exchanged with her. The proof was all there in unpleasant detail.
Alongside screenshots of these messages sat a question: “I wouldn’t marry him. Will you?” Scanning the texts, the true extent of Alex’s betrayal was all too obvious. The evidence was there in black and white that he had been sleeping with this woman, and the messages ranged from months back to just a few days ago.
