5 Minute Freewrite - Betray Me


All, doing a 5 minute freewrite. Thank you for reading.


As she lay in bed, staring at the ceiling, Sarah couldn't shake off the feeling of betrayal. She had always trusted her best friend, Emily, with her deepest secrets, but now she wasn't so sure.

It all started when Sarah's crush, Jake, asked her out on a date. She was over the moon and couldn't wait to share the news with Emily. But instead of being happy for her, Emily's face twisted into a sneer. 'Jake? Really? He's not even that cute,' she said dismissively.

Sarah was taken aback by her friend's reaction. She couldn't understand why Emily was being so negative towards her happiness. But she shrugged it off, thinking maybe Emily was just having a bad day.

The next day, Sarah caught Emily whispering to Jake in the hallway. They both quickly stopped talking when they noticed Sarah approaching. Her heart sank as she realized that Emily had betrayed her. She had told Jake about her crush and he was now avoiding her.

Feeling hurt and betrayed, Sarah confronted Emily. But instead of apologizing, Emily laughed in her face. 'I did you a favor, Sarah. Jake is a player. You would have only gotten hurt,' she said callously.

Sarah was heartbroken. She couldn't believe her best friend had deliberately sabotaged her chance at happiness. She couldn't even look at Emily without feeling a surge of anger and hurt.

From that day on, Sarah learned to be more careful about who she trusted. The betrayal from her best friend had left a scar on her heart that would take time to heal. But she knew that she deserved better than a friend who would willingly betray her.
