The sun was setting over the city as Amy walked through the quiet streets, her high heels clicking against the pavement. She was running late, as usual, and she had a feeling that tonight was going to be a long one. She was meeting her friend Sarah for drinks, and she knew that Sarah had something important to tell her.

Amy was a successful businesswoman, but she had a secret. For as long as she could remember, she had been able to see things that others couldn't. It was a gift, but it was also a curse. She had learned to keep it to herself, and she had built a life that was normal, or as normal as it could be.

When she arrived at the bar, Sarah was already there, nursing a drink. She looked nervous, and Amy knew immediately that something was wrong.

"What's up?" Amy asked, taking a seat across from her friend.

Sarah took a deep breath and looked at Amy with tears in her eyes. "I need your help," she said. "I think my husband is cheating on me."

Amy's heart sank. She had always liked Sarah's husband, and she couldn't imagine him being unfaithful. But she also knew that things weren't always as they seemed.

"What makes you think that?" Amy asked.

Sarah shook her head. "I don't know. I just have this feeling, and I can't shake it."

Amy reached across the table and took Sarah's hand. "I'll do whatever I can to help," she said.

And so, Amy found herself following Sarah's husband, trying to find out if he was indeed cheating. It was a difficult and dangerous game, but Amy was determined to help her friend.

Days turned into weeks, and still, Amy couldn't find any evidence of infidelity. She was starting to believe that Sarah's husband was innocent, and she was relieved. But then, one day, she saw something that changed everything.

She was walking down the street when she saw a woman step out of a building and walk towards Sarah's husband. They hugged, and Amy felt her heart drop. She had finally found the evidence she was looking for.

She followed the couple to a nearby hotel, and she watched as they went inside. She was torn. Part of her wanted to run back to Sarah and tell her the truth, but another part of her was afraid. What if she was wrong? What if she was ruining someone's life?

In the end, she couldn't keep the secret to herself. She went back to Sarah and told her what she had seen. Sarah was devastated, and Amy felt guilty. She had never wanted to hurt her friend, but now, it was too late.

Days passed, and Sarah's husband left her. Sarah was heartbroken, and Amy felt like she had failed her friend. She had always thought that her gift was a blessing, but now, she wasn't so sure.

And then, one day, Sarah came to see her. She looked different, like she had finally found some peace.

"I want to thank you," Sarah said. "You were right. My husband was cheating on me, and I never would have known if it weren't for you."

Amy was shocked. She had never expected Sarah to forgive her, but she was grateful nonetheless.

"I'm sorry," Amy said. "I never wanted to hurt you."

Sarah smiled. "I know that," she said. "And I
