Chapter Five: Vile Piece
The get together was quieting down. By this time three couples left. I thought I would be the next man who took his woman home. I spoke with Celiene, and she totally understood. I offered to drop her off at her house, but she said she would take a cab. She didn’t want to mess with my thing. I smiled, said goodnight, and escorted Kay to my car. Before I opened the door for her, I looked into to her beautiful brown eyes, and gave her a chaste kiss.
“Would you like to see my house?” I asked.
I opened her door, and she got in. I walked around to my side of the car, got in, and started my black BMW. The ride from Jeffrey’s place to the highway was pretty quiet. We drove in silence until we got there. I turned left onto the highway going north, and she didn’t utter one word. I wondered why she didn’t ask where she was going. Perhaps she felt safe riding with me.
I lived in Briarcliff Manor. That was about thirty miles north of Manhattan. A reasonably small city that housed only the wealthy. This late at night it was a faster drive than it normally would take me. This is one of the reasons I work from home a lot. Sometimes I just don’t feel like the long ass commute. I digress.
I pulled up to the gate of my mansion and stopped the car. “Well, this is it.”
“Wow! Who knew you lived like this?”
I chuckled. “Everyone but you babe. Shall we go in?”
We walked in, and Josie almost met us at the door.
“Well, who do we have here?”
I grinned widely. “Josephine, this beautiful lady is Kay Jacobs. You will be seeing lots of her around here, I would assume.” I looked down at Kay and she nodded.
Josie smiled. “It’s nice to meet you, Miss Jacobs. I can tell that you make Darren happy, and that’s all that his parents ever wanted him to be. Welcome.”
Kay smiled back. “Thank you, Josephine.”
“Well, I’m going to bed. If there is anything that the two of you need, just let me know,” she winked.
“Goodnight, Darren,” and she was gone.
I took Kay by the hand and gave her a tour of my huge house. The last room on the tour was of course, my bedroom. Kay walked around my large room looking at pictures. She stopped when she got to the picture of my mother. She picked it up and studied it.
“She’s beautiful. Who is she?”
I walked over to her slowly and stood behind her. I wrapped my arms around her and put my chin on her shoulder. “My mother. I wish you could have met her. She would have loved you.”
“Oh Darren, I’m so sorry. When did she die?” Kay asked sadly.
“About five years ago. Almost six now. She and my father were coming back from vacation when their plane went down,” I said sadly. She put my mother’s picture down and turned to face me. I thought for sure she was going to cry. I managed a weak smile and said, “It’s okay, Kay. I’m fine. I just miss my mother sometimes. My father not so much. But I don’t want to talk about them right now. I want to talk about us.”
“Are we going to make love tonight?”
As much as Dude would have liked to destroy her insides, Darren was a different man. I totally intended to be Darren that night. “No. Tonight, I just want to hold you. I have missed out on so much.” I’m sure she had no idea what I meant by that statement, I barely understood it myself. But I was not going to sleep with Kay that night. Tonight, I was just going to hold her and catch up on all the love I missed from her over a long period of time.
I was so happy to be with her. I turned on a little music and helped her out of her dress. I did everything in my power to contain my desire. We lay down next to each other, and I pulled her close to me. She felt so wonderful in my arms; I never wanted to let her go. We fell asleep wrapped in each other, and I couldn’t have been happier.
The following day, started with a light breakfast at my favorite café. I just wanted some eggs and bacon. Maybe some toast, hashed browns, and coffee.
Kay ordered something simple. Kay ordered a cup of coffee and an egg sandwich. I sat at the table with her, and we talked. We chatted about lots of things. One thing we didn’t talk about was the meathead, and that made me happy.
When we were finished eating, I took her to the beach. She looked so cute in her yellow outfit, that I had to show her off. I saw several men looking at my girl and it made me happy. We walked along the beach barefoot and hand in hand. I couldn’t believe that she was there actually enjoying her time with me. I kissed her several times, so my brain stayed on fire.
We stayed at the beach all day. We played like children, and we laughed. I was loving her more and more by the hour.
We left the beach to prepare for dinner. I took her to Eleven Madison Park for dinner. The food was fantastic, and it was insanely expensive, but she didn’t know that. We talked and laughed through our fantastic meal and didn’t have a care in the world. Soon it was time for us to leave. I didn’t want it to end.
We walked outside, and I told her a joke. “Well, that may be okay in California, but we’re not having any of that crap here in Texas,” was the punch line.
Kay laughed really hard. “That was hilarious!”
I smiled. “That’s one of my favorite jokes.”
When our laughter died down, we stared into each other’s eyes. She was the most magnificent woman I’d ever met.
I stroked her cheek gently and asked, “So did you enjoy your day?”
She nodded, placing her hand on mine. “It was one of the most spectacular days of my adult life.”
“I’m glad. So, are you ready to go home?”
She took a deep breath and said, “I’m a little tired. It’s been a long day.”
I couldn’t believe it. She was doing it to me again. The last time she said that to me, we got into a fight. I didn’t want to fight with her. I held my emotions in check. “Okay babe. I’ll take you home.”
We got on the highway and drove for a little while. When I put on my turn signal to exit...
“Where are you going?” Kay asked.
“I’m taking you home.”
Kay giggled that cute little giggle again. “I don’t want to go to my house silly. I want to go to your house.”
My heart began racing. I was so excited. “Oh! Okay. I guess we have a few exits then.”
She kissed me on my cheek. “Yeah, just a few.”
She lay her head on my shoulder, and we rode to my house in silence.
When we arrived at my house, I opened the door, and allowed her to go in first. I closed the door behind us and gently grabbed her hand. She smiled up at me and I returned her smile as I led her to my room.
Once there, I pulled her close to me, and stared into her beautiful brown eyes. “I love you, Kay.”
She gently stroked my cheek, and let her deep feelings come through her hands. I leaned down and gave her a chaste kiss, and she smiled. I kissed her gently again and her smile went away. She grabbed me by the back of the head and pulled me to her, kissing me passionately. She wanted me, and I wasn’t going to tell her no.
Kay pulled away from me. She reached behind her, to start and unzip her dress. When she couldn’t unzip it any further, she turned around so that I could help her. Once the zipper met the small of her back, she slowly pushed her dress off her right shoulder. I gently kissed it. She pushed the dress from her opposite shoulder, and I kissed it as well.
I kissed the back of her neck, as I slowly pushed the sleeves of her dress down her arms, and her dress fell to the floor. I unfastened her bra, and let it drop to the floor.
She took both of my arms and placed both of my hands on her breasts. They were full and firm. I gently massaged them and kissed her neck and back as I did. She let out soft moans, and my erection began to grow.
I turned her to face me and gave her a chaste kiss before I fell to my knees in front of her. She was a queen. I looped my fingers on either side of her panties and pulled them to the floor. She stepped out of them one leg at a time.
I stayed on my knees, and took my time to rub her soft legs, from her calves to her ass. Good Lord, she was beautiful. I stood, pulled her close to me, and gave her a deep kiss. She pulled away, and took her time undressing me.
She started on my tie. She reached toward my neck, grabbed my tie, and looked at me with intense hunger in her eyes. She pulled me to her mouth and kissed me hard. It was so sexy; I let out a small moan of my own. She let me go and undid my tie.
When the tie hit the floor, she reached for my left hand. Holding my left hand in hers, she removed a cufflink, and let it drop to the floor. She looked up at me with a sexy smile, and took my right arm in hers, and repeated her earlier action. Then she started on the button at my neck. One at a time, they came undone in a sensual manner. When three buttons were undone, she leaned in and kissed me softly on my chest. Her soft lips on my skin made my growing erection begin to be uncomfortable in my pants. She finished off my buttons as she continued to kiss my chest. She began kissing my stomach, as she undid my belt. Before she released it, she used it to pull me to her again to give me another insanely passionate kiss. My head was about to explode from her kisses, but I let her do what she wanted. I was her slave at that point.
Before long, she pulled my pants to the floor, underwear and all. I stepped out of my clothes just as she had done. Soon, we were naked, standing in a pile of clothing. I had to have her. I wrapped my hand around the nape of her neck and brought her lips to mine once again. Our tongues danced the dance of love, and I couldn’t have been happier.
I let her go and stood there absorbing her nakedness. Finally, I was going to make love to the woman who I desired for a very long time. I picked her up and laid her on my bed. I moved to straddle her naked body, and I kissed her softly on her neck, slowly moving down to her breasts.
Kay closed her eyes and breathed heavily as I did this. I put one in my mouth. I sucked on it gently, and pinched the nipple of the other, Kay softly moaned, and pulled at my hair as I did it. I opened my mouth wider to take as much of her breast in my mouth as I could. She arched her back, seeming to want more of her breast in my mouth.
“Bite it,” she whispered.
I moved away from her nipple to the fleshy part of her breast and gently nibbled at it. This didn’t seem to satisfy her.
“Harder,” she said a little louder, and I did so. She moaned louder at the gentle pain I was giving her.
The skin on my manhood was growing tighter the longer I prolonged penetrating her. But this was something I waited on for years, and I wasn’t going to mess it up. I was patient.
I moved away from her breasts and kissed her down past her stomach until I reached the sweet aroma of her sex. I moved her legs so they sat on my shoulders. Moving my face between her legs, I smelled her. The sweet aroma of love hit me in the face, and I had to hold back. I wanted to taste her without spilling my juices. She wasn’t making it easy.
I licked gently at first, wanting to get her juices flowing. Kay moaned a little louder. I continued until I witnessed her wetness. It trickled from her at a slow pace, allowing me to taste every sweet drop. I then added a finger to my gentle, oral lovemaking. Kay continued to moan and raised her hips off the bed, so I had easier access to what she held most dear. I took her cue, added two fingers. At three, she was gyrating, slowly, not to disturb my rhythm. I sped up a bit and then she screamed my name. Hearing my name leave her lips in our current situation only made me want her more. I continued to lick, suck, and finger her until she released her passion.
I enjoyed every sweet drop. I allowed just a bit of her to remain on my lips. I withdrew my fingers and moved to kiss her. It only made her want me more. She grabbed me and held me tightly as I kissed her. I was ready to penetrate her, and she was ready as well.
I stopped kissing her and backed off. I caressed her body as my hands found the back of her knees. I grabbed them and gently pushed her legs as close to her ears as I could get them without hurting her. I moved to the entry of her sex and I pushed into her.
Kay screamed my name again. I could no longer contain myself. I began to pound her unremittingly. My thrusts were hard and deep. I watched as Kay’s eyes rolled to the back of her head as she called my name loudly and repeatedly. I felt my own passion begin to rise as I moved in and out of her even faster. Kay moaned, groaned, with pleasure.
I released my passion with a guttural groan, calling her name at the same time. I was happy that I loved her. I was happy that the most beautiful woman I have ever met allowed herself to be with me. I could not have asked for anything more.
I released her legs and gently propped myself above her as I continued to move gently in and out of her, releasing what was left of my orgasm. Sweat dripping from my face, I buried my face in the pillow, so I wouldn’t get any in her face. Kay gently panted as I did this. She was out of breath, and frankly, so was I.
When the last of my love trickled into her, I rolled off her and pulled her close to me. Her hot, sweaty body felt good against mine. I held her as our rapid breathing subsided. Then her small voice came from the dark.
“No more Jacob, Darren. Just me and you.”
I wasn’t sure what to say to that. Not that I didn’t agree, but it caught me a little off guard. She mentioned Jacob, because she knew that I knew she was in somewhat of a relationship with him. My guess is she was telling me that she was mine, and she wanted me to make that same commitment.
Of course, I was going to commit to her. It was my idea in the first place. “Just me and you, Kay,” I said quietly.
I felt her breathing get even, and the next thing I knew, she was asleep. We had a long day. I was pretty tired myself. I allowed myself to think of how awesome my future was going to be with Kay, and eventually drifted off to sleep myself.
Midweek, I found myself in my office working like a fiend. This was normal. I always worked hard. My cell phone sat to the left of my keyboard so I could see it. I didn’t want it to get in the way of my mouse. It had only been a couple of days since Kay and I committed to each other, but I can’t tell you how free I felt. I was once again comfortable being Darren Smith. I couldn’t wait until the next time I saw her or heard her voice.
Midday, my phone rang. I looked down to see that it was Kay. I immediately began to sweat in anticipation of hearing her voice.
I took a deep breath and answered my phone. “Hey babe.”
In the back of my head I was secretly wishing that she wanted to see me and see me soon. I got my wish. “We can go out for dinner if you want.” She agreed. “Awesome. Bye babe.”
Jeffrey walked into my office as I was hanging up the phone. “Who was that?”
“That was Kay. We’re going to dinner tonight. Would you like to join us?”
I wanted to show my best friend how in love I really was. I hoped he didn’t have any plans.
“Sure. Can I bring Melissa?”
I nodded. “Of course.”
“Great,” Jeffrey said pulling out his phone. “Let me text her before she makes any plans.”
I made reservations for four at Julio’s. Mexican, exclusive, and expensive. I was looking forward to spending time with my best friend, and my girl. My girl. I liked that.
Kay and I were standing outside of the restaurant twenty minutes before we were supposed to be there. Jeffrey was late. I was beginning to get irritated when Jeffrey’s car pulled up. He got out, came around to the passenger side of the car and Melissa wasn’t the one who stepped out. Instead, it was a woman who I thought I saw before but couldn’t be sure. Where the hell was Melissa?
Jeffrey gave the keys to the valet, and the car pulled away. He smiled, acknowledged Kay and myself, and then introduced the mystery woman.
“Dude, Kay, this is Alani.”
Alani smiled and waved. “Hello everyone!”
I recognized her. This was the chick Jeffrey met when we went to Tony’s that night. I hope he wasn’t about to do something stupid. Kay and I greeted her with large smiles, and I insisted on speaking to Jeffrey alone. “Ladies, I would like to speak with Jeffrey for a moment. Will you please excuse us?”
Kay kissed me on the cheek and left to go into the restaurant. Alani followed. When they were out of earshot, I asked, “Okay, where is Mel?”
“I thought I told you. She said she had something to do tonight.”
“Well you should have said something, and we could have had Josie cook for us at my house.”
“Your ass is cheap for a millionaire,” Jeffrey said with a chuckle. “Don’t worry about it man. If she’s busy, she’s busy. I’m not worried about it.”
“You’re not going to sleep with Alani, are you?”
Jeffrey smirked. “Of course not. She’s just here to look beautiful on my arm.”
I laughed knowing exactly what he was talking about. “Okay man whatever you say. Come on the girls are waiting.”
While Jeffery and I were outside talking, Kay and Alani made their way into the restaurant.
“So how long have you known Jeffrey?” I asked, not really interested, but I had to talk to the girl.
“Not that long. I hung out with him one night a few months ago. He’s really sweet.”
I agreed. “Yeah, I like Jeffrey. He’s a good guy.”
“So how long have you been dating Dude?” Alani asked.
“Not long. We have a long history though.”
Alani smiled. “I’d love to hear the story one day.”
“It’s a great story. I’d love to tell you about it.”
Alani looked around the room. “There are some cuties in here tonight.”
I who only had eyes for Darren, replied, “Really? Where?”
“Look over at that table across the room.”
I panned the room and saw something that would set the world on fire. “Oh my God!”
Alani had no clue. “What’s the matter?”
I shook my head. “We can’t eat here. Come on Alani, let’s go.”
“So, what are the guys gonna say?” Alani asked.
“Never mind that. Let’s go.”
Kay and Alani met us at the door. “Babe, we have to go,” Kay said mortified.
I was confused. “Wait, wait, wait. What’s going on?”
Kay shook her head again. “We cannot have dinner here,” she insisted.
Jeffrey asked, “Why not?”
I agreed with him. “Yeah babe, why not?”
She shook her head again. “We just can’t.”
She must have been out of her mind. I made a reservation. I made a reservation that cost me additional money because I reserved late. This didn’t sit well with me. “We have a reservation, honey.”
Jeffrey agreed. “Yeah, and we look spectacular. Come on Alani. Let’s go.”
Jeffrey and Alani made their way into the restaurant before Kay and me. I turned to follow when she pulled me by my arm. “Darren, wait.”
“What’s the matter?” I asked.
“Jeffrey is going to lose his noodle if he sees what I saw.”
Cause for concern. “What did you see?”
“Jacob and Melissa sitting at the same table.”
“Oh shit! Come on babe, let’s go.”
I knew how I felt about Jacob. I’m not sure how Jeffrey felt about Jacob, but I can say for sure that it wasn’t going to be good when he saw his girl sitting at the table with the meathead.
By the time we entered, we could only witness the ugly. There my best friend was standing at Melissa’s table. Melissa looked up in shock. “Jeffrey!”
My boy was always even keeled. Major chilled. However, knowing what he knew about Jacob, he was not happy when he saw what he saw.
Jeffrey was unusually calm. “Melissa, I need to talk to you. Meet me outside.”
She was still reeling and wondering why and how her man was standing before her. “Jeffrey, I…”
“Don’t make me get ugly in here.” Jeffrey turned away and headed in our direction. Jeffrey stormed past me without words. I had never seen him like this before. I stayed in the restaurant still attempting to make our reservation, though I knew it was not going to happen.
Jacob smiled at Mel and asked, “Do you need me to come with you?”
Melissa knew better. “No. It will be okay.” Melissa also walked past the three of us like we weren’t even there. She had a bit of fear in her eyes, which to me, meant she’d done something terribly wrong. I hoped she hadn’t slept with this guy.
After a few minutes, I could hear Jeffrey shouting from inside the restaurant. This wasn’t a good thing. My best friend never raised his voice to anyone. Well at least as far back as I can remember he hasn’t. So, when I heard him, I knew there was something terribly wrong.
I turned toward Kay and Alani. “You two wait here.”
“What if they call us for our table babe?” Kay asked.
“Stall if you can,” I replied and made my way outside.
When I walked out of the door, Melissa was crying, and Jeffrey was pacing angrily like a mad man. Yes, my best friend was as mad as I had ever seen him. I started walking toward them, and it was obvious that Jeffrey didn’t see me. To my surprise, he pulled his arm back and was going to slap Melissa with his open hand. I rushed to stop him. Thankfully I caught his arm just in time.
“Jeff man, what are you doing?” I asked holding his arm tightly in my hand.
Jeffrey pulled away from me. “I have given her everything, Dude! She lied to me!” He yelled, pointing his finger at me.
“Lied about what?”
“What the hell do you think? I text her to invite her to dinner with me, and I find her here on a date with someone else! I love her, and she betrayed me!”
I took a deep breath. Yes, it did look that way, even to me. “Okay, so she lied. It doesn’t mean you have to hit her.”
I turned to Melissa to see her left cheek extremely red. I was not happy with my friend’s actions. He wasn’t raised to hit women, why did he start now? In all the years I have known him, I had never seen him like this before. He was angry. I mean so mad that he couldn’t have known what he was doing. “Calm down Jeff,” I said quietly. I turned to Mel who was balling. “Melissa, go back inside. I will take care of him.”
Melissa turned and went back into the restaurant. Jeffrey paced very quickly in a small space in front of me. I’m not sure, but I think he was trying to calm down.
After a few moments, he stopped on a dime, turned to face me, pointed his finger in my face, and yelled, “She has lost her ever loving mind!”
I didn’t yell back. I kept my composure. “So okay. She went on a date with someone else. That doesn’t give you the right to hit her.”
I think it was that moment that Jeffrey realized that he struck his woman. Not once but twice. I could see the pain in his eyes. It was killing him.
“I’m sorry,” he said hanging his head. “I just snapped. I have never felt like this before.”
“It’s not me you need to be apologizing too.”
“I realize that.” Thinking he was going to ask me to go get Mel, he said, “Hey man. I’m gonna go. Can you apologize to Alani for me?”
“Yeah man, sure. I’ll make sure she gets home.”
“Thanks. Talk to you later.” Jeffrey walked to his car.
As he walked away, I was a little angry about the situation myself. I made this reservation for four people. Jeffrey, Mel, Kay and myself. I shouldn’t have even invited him. I wanted to spend time with my girl, and I should have just done that. I would be eating by now. At that moment, my stomach growled. It made me even angrier.
I stood outside trying to decide what to do. He’s right. She has lost her mind, I thought. No sooner than those words entered my mind, she came out of the restaurant with the meathead. She was still crying. He was holding her by the arm, slowly walking toward the parking lot. I think Jeffrey’s emotions were infectious and infected me.
When they got close enough, I swung on him. He seemed a little surprised. Mel certainly was. “Take her home! If I see you with Melissa again, I’m gonna hit you!” I yelled. “Every time I see you with a woman, I’m gonna hit you! You are a vile piece of shit! Get out of my face!”
Jacob didn’t retaliate. I was quite surprised. He just took Mel by the arm and continued to the parking lot. This time he moved a little faster. I stood in front of the restaurant looking quite good in my tux, and I didn’t even feel like eating anymore.
