Prompt for August 29, 2015

Complete the short story/flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:

The view from the edge of the cliff would normally have taken Justin’s breath away. The hundred-foot sheer drop to the waves below almost always made him back away from the edge. But not today. Not after this morning. Not after what he saw happening in his bed when he came home early from the night shift. His wife and her best friend along with his boss from work. He hadn’t rushed in, screaming and yelling, instead he had backed out of the room, quietly leaving the house and had taken a walk. A long walk. The cliff he was standing on was a good 10 km from his house, but his feet had taken him here as this was where he had proposed to his wife not five years ago. He sat down on the edge of the cliff, his feet dangling in the free space and thought about flying.
