The Meaning of Inscrutable, Forsake, Corroborate, Imposed, Svengali
Mark’s handwriting was not inscrutable. I could easily read the love note he had written for his girlfriend. Because Mark had betrayed me, I became angry, and as such, it was easy for me to forsake him and walk away from the jail alone. During the trial, I chose not to corroborate Mark’s alibi; I wanted him to suffer in prison despite his innocence. When I learned about the lengthy sentence the judge had imposed upon Mark, I rejoiced with glee. With Mark locked away, I was free; no longer controlled by a Svengali who controlled my every move. As they say, there is no fury like a woman scorned.
