‘I love my best friend’s husband’

‘I’ve known Gail for almost 25 years – we started a new job on the same day together and have been best mates ever since.

We’ve been through everything together: boyfriends dumping us, finding our Mr Right, having kids… you name it, we’ve done it and we tell each other everything.

Well, except for one small thing. I am totally in love with her husband Will.

I should point out that nothing has ever happened and I’m not even sure if he even knows, but I adore him. He’s so strong and sexy and really, really funny.

Gail met Will one a blind date nearly 20 years ago and she’s really happy with him. I often tease her that she doesn’t appreciate him enough, because she’s often telling me all the things he gets wrong or doesn’t do properly, but she loves him dearly.

I’m also very much in love with Gary, my husband, but I do gaze at Will sometimes and wonder if the grass would be greener. I even try to wangle times just to be together with him.

The worst thing about it is that I was with Gail when she met Will on that blind date 20 years ago.

It was a double date and I was meant to be paired off with him. Things didn’t work out quite like that and he ended up falling for Gail instead.

I’ll never be able to tell Gail my secret, because it would ruin our friendship.
