This is an extremely competent, effective short, and a nice little twist on the classic, and slightly tired 'affair' story. Your character of Gary is well thought through - I felt some warmth towards him, then realised he was a bit of a spineless loser, but still felt a wee bit sorry for him in the end! I love how you've tied everything together so neatly - really well crafted. Can't really fault it in any way. I held back from giving it five stars throughout, merely because it didn't blow me away - and that's just personal taste - but I did still really enjoy it.
