Tom was happy with his girl.
They were on love and soon to be married when Tom saw another.
She was beautiful and exotic and he soon fell for her and began to see her whenever he could.
Tom knew he was doing wrong yet he loved both women too much to give either up.
But one day his girl found him and the new woman together and although he tried to explain, she fled in tears.
The next day he found her dead by a bullet in her room, the gun still by her side. Tom fell to his knees in tears. "I'm sorry," he cried. "I should never have done this. I am responsible for your death."
And with these words he picked up the gun, took his own life and fell down dead beside her.
Morale of the story: Don't Cheat! It brings nothing but sorrow.
