Guy finds wife is cheating on him with guild leader in warcraft, guy continues to play for some item in the game. Guy thinks he is posting anonymously to look for help, he is easily identified. It may be fake but is still strange.
I am posting this on a level 1 alt for reasons that will become clear as you read further.
My main is a level 60 Priest in a high-end raiding guild. We are the farthest in progression on our server, and downed Kel’Thuzad for the first time several weeks ago. My wife and I are both very consistent raiders, with 90% attendance or more. My wife does not work, so during the day while I am busy bringing home the bacon, she plays World of Warcraft, farming for mats and gold … and apparently cybering our guild leader, as I recently found out.
I first became suspicious about a month ago. She has always been very flirtatious, but I noticed an increase in her flirtiness with toward our guild leader in raid chat and in vent, and his attitude toward her as well. This included numerous sexual innuendos, lots of giggling, dares, suggestions … you get the picture. At first I thought it was harmless, but eventually a nagging suspicious developed, tugging at my gut. I didn’t want to mention anything outright and sound like the jealous over-protective husband, thus I devised a plan.
Several nights ago, after a long seven hour raiding stretch, I told my wife I needed a six pack of beer and sent her to the store to fetch it for me. I logged onto her computer and did a search of her MSN conversation history. Jackpot. Their conversations had started innocently enough, but quickly progressed to more intimate topics, to include my inadequacy in bed (I was struck in the genitals with a golf ball in high school, so the fault isn’t mine, really). He offered his “assistance,” persay, and things grew from there. I saw references to their steamy sessions in Darnassus and their all night binges in Silithus — apparently she’d been getting up in the middle of the night while I slept innocently and ignorantly to carry on her indecent affairs. Worst of all, I saw pictures she had sent him, and pictures he had sent her. No, that’s not the worst part. The worst part was that he was hung like a Clydesdale horse. I’m not kidding.
I thought about confronting her when she got home. That would be the simple thing to do — confront her and bring it out in the open, possibly ending our relationship all together and filing for a divorce. Unfortunately, things aren’t quite that simple. You see, I am next in line for the Staff of Atiesh. I have 32 out of 40 pieces. Wouldn’t it be a waste to confront my wife, because I would of course have to confront my guild leader and, most likely, would have to leave the guild to save face and all. As a result, I would be unable to complete my Staff of Atiesh.
So, Instead of confronting her, I pretended as if I knew nothing. I continued to raid — continue to raid even now, as I write this — and feign ignorance to their flirtations.
However, everytime she comments on the size of his Thunderfury or his ability to wield it so adeptly, I have to grate my teeth. It’s wearing on me slowly, an anger building, and I am afraid that soon it may very well burst. I swear that one of these days, I am going to turn around, wrap my mouse cord around her neck, and choke off her lying, cheating life.
What should I do?
