kaffarah for slandering woman


I have done a big mistake. Actually I have slandered a woman in front of our mutual friend and then i talked to her and got my mind cleared that she hasnt done anything bad.
I have already excused her and she said that its OK.
Please tell me if i need to bear any kafara on it?
Much worried, so your swift response will be really helpfull.

In the Name of Allah, the All-Beneficent, the All-Merciful.

Please repent and do your best to remove this illness from your heart, an illness we may all have and need to work hard to cure, ask for forgiveness and pray for her.
