Z had, in a moment of emotional weakness, confided some private matters to me. I understood that Z is someone who cherish privacy. This action by Z had shocked and pressurized me. To balance the scales, I think Z must be regretting that act now.
I am someone who is always worrying about letting out someone’s secret by a slip of tongue.
Z is someone who is very paranoid about others using secrets as a betting stake to win the trust of the general “others”.
This moment of emotional weakness had such damaging effects, causing the dark eyerings of two night owls to darken further.
