Bobby looked out before the audience, his face red from a mix of road rash and embarrassment.
He mouthed his empty words to the eager press while his mind tried once again to answer the question that would not be silenced. “Why? Why would a simple mid-life crisis cause me such a scandal? It was just motorcycle, a young blonde, and six months of play. It was so stereotypical that not even romance novels wrote penned them this way. Why?”
Another question forced its way to the forefront of his mind as he blathered on. “How could this ruin my career? Other great men have affairs and continue on fine, if not better for it. Rock stars, actors, even Presidents all have had affairs and kept their jobs. How could such a mediocre thing destroy such a great career?”
An exceptionally close and bright flash from a camera jolted him to reality. He said his last goodbyes and left the stage not realizing that the greatest scandal was not the mediocre affair, but the mediocre man who truly believed that he was superior to the rest.
A nagging story that just wanted to be written for the Trifecta Challenge.
