***IF YOU HAVE NOT READ PART ONE, “RACHEL” PLEASE DO SO NOW! NO SPOILERS!!!***
“Darnell!?” I said in a loud whisper.
“Yes, that’s my little side piece for now. He’s so sexy and he’s a doctor,” she replied blushing.
I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. First of all, the feeling that was burning within my soul was actually true? That my man had been cheating on me for God knows how long. Secondly, that the woman I just came home with is the whore my husband has been sleeping with!
“So did you want me to leave?” I said curious as to why she had anyone coming over at all.
“Of course not! I was actually hoping you’d stay for a little two on one if you know what I mean?” No this heffa didn’t just assume that I was into her little freaky escapades and wanted me to tag along so they both could toy around with me. I needed to get the hell out of there and fast before I lost my temper. However, it wouldn’t be so bad to see what he does to try and wiesel his way out of this one. I figured I’d just play along until she opened the door and keep my cool even when he saw me.
“Hmm. I see” I replied.
“Sanai are you gonna let me in or do I need to the jack hammer up for the night?” I heard Darnell say from outside. He sounded extremely drunk and it really irked me.
“Here I come babe” she replied to him as she walked out of the room. I laid across the bed and tried to look as if I was waiting on their return in a sexy position. When I figured that didn’t work, I decided to head up front to the door and stand behind it as she opened it. I stood behind the door and Sanai gave me a confused look.
“What are you do…” I covered her mouth with one hand as I placed my index finger on the other over my lips in order to hush her. She proceeded to half way open the door. I began nibbling on her left ear from behind the door and trailed my fingertips on the small of her back. I could see her knees getting weak.
“Well are you gonna let me in? I wanna know what other girl you got up in here so I can introduce myself. She opened the door up the rest of the way and exposed me kissing on her neck to Darnell. There he was, tall, dark, and sloppy looking. Looking like a confused junkie real thirsty for the pussy. He stood in total shock as I tongued her neck down, but I made sure to look over at him so that he’d know that I had caught him and I wanted him to see the fact that I had just gotten through fucking his little girlfriend and vice versa. Since he was so drunk, I couldn’t tell if he had even realized what I was doing or if he even realized that it was me for that matter.
“Hey babe, this is my new friend, Rachel” Sanai said while introducing us. Both Darnell and I looked at one another awkwardly and I kissed Sanai on the cheek.
“I’ve gotta go, Sanai. Thank you for tonight though.” I said while kissing her on the lips and looking over to Darnell at the same time. I could tell that he was growing irritated with me and my glances over to him. I rushed back into the room and threw on my clothes. Sanai followed behind me.
“Did I miss something here? Do you two know each other?” she yelled loudly where Darnell could practically hear her.
“No, Sanai. I just didn’t like his vibe. He seemed a little too thirsty for me.” I replied lying. I wasn’t about to tell her just yet because after all, she may not even know about me and the fact that Darnell has a wife. I continued to get dressed and kissed her on the cheek.
“I’ll call you later?” I asked in order to make it seem as if I was interested in seeing her again.
“Of course” she said as she followed me to the front door. As soon as we hit the living room we both noticed that Darnell was nowhere in sight. The door was even still open.
“Where did he run off to?” she asked in confusion.
“I guess we kept him waiting too long” I said while laughing. I was shocked that Darnell didn’t notice my car. I guess he was really that drunk. I hopped in my car and called my girl Kayleigh, but I didn’t receive an answer. Maybe she and that girl hit it off. However, I was extremely hunger and I needed to soak up the alcohol.
I knew of a late night spot named “Davies Bar and Grill.” They serve really good, quality food and their drinks are amazing! I still wanted to sop up the alcohol that I already had in my system so I chose to get a virgin Kimalah (Kee-Mah-Lah), a house special, which is a blend of grape puree, cucumber water, lemon juice and syrup. I always ask for a piece of mint in mine. I was excited when my food finally came up; a salmon burger topped with a fresh dill ranch, pickles, romaine lettuce and tomatoes, all on top of a toasted brioche bun. Oh and a side of sweet potato fries with a sweet chili mayo dip. After I finished eating, I made my way back to my car anxious to get back home. I thought to myself that this was truly something. My husband and I sharing the same mistress. I dared for him to say something to me about cheating when I approached him with the situation. He definitely wouldn’t be able to get out of it considering that he forgot our anniversary and left me hanging. And not to mention the fact that he has avoided our relationship long enough when I have been putting in so much effort only to be ignored and taken for granted. This was enough for me to leave. I needed the proof that he was unfaithful, and I got it…
It was now about 4 AM and I was so tired. I pulled up to my home with no sign of Darnell’s Jag anywhere. The house was just as I had left it the night before. I set my keys on the side table in the living room and made my way up to the bedroom. I first showered to get the dirt off of me. The cheating dirt that traveled with me and to get Darnell’s mistress off of me. I hurriedly pulled back the covers on the bed and hopped onto the bed, laying my head down slowly. This would be a night to remember.
As I woke up the next morning, everything seemed a little foggy to me. I felt as though my body wasn’t my own. I quickly reached over beside me to feel for Darnell but of course he was not there. Then suddenly things became clearer and I got up from the bed in disgust. I opened my large drapes and revealed the bright sunlight before me. It was so beautiful outside. The trees were softly blowing with the wind and the grass and trees were the greenest I’d ever seen, or at least noticed. I had an epiphany and decided that if Darnell didn’t want to show his face then that would be fine, but I wasn’t going to stay around and wait for him at the house. I got dressed and put my hair up in a ponytail and sought for adventures to pursue the day. My first stop would be the outlet mall. I drove down to the mall by my lonesome and headed into my favorite store, Nordstrom. When I entered, I went upstairs to the second floor where the women’s clothing was and decided to pick out something sexy just because. I couldn’t help but notice this fine brotha standing across the escalators in the Men’s section checking me out as well. I turned to try and play it off, but I’m sure that I was obvious especially since not long after, he made his way over to me. He was tall, chocolate, and athletic built. He had a nice beard
“I think that one would be beautiful on you” I heard him say from behind me referring to the dress that was in my hand that I was trying to decide on.
“Oh, you think so? I didn’t know if it was too bright for my complexion.”
“No, of course not. I’m sure you look gorgeous in whatever you choose.” I blushed at the comment. “My name is Tyler,” he said as he extended his hand for a handshake.
“Rachel,” I replied accepting his greeting.
“Rachel, I must say that you are very gorgeous. I couldn’t help but check you out from across the way as you could see, and I hope that I’m not prying in your business by asking you this, but are you single?” I wasn’t sure if my next move would be a smart one, but again, I did not care one bit. If Darnell’s 40-year-old ass could go around the town acting as if he’s a 25-year-old bachelor, then I could have a little fun too.
“Yes, I am. I was actually hoping you’d say the same about yourself” I replied without any guilt in my soul.
“Is that right,” he said as he chuckled. “Well if you are not doing anything tonight, I would love to take you out and show you a good time.”
“That actually sounds like a good plan, but I’m sorry I’ll have to decline for tonight. I have a pre-planned engagement to attend. Are you free tomorrow night?” My mama always told me to not give in so easily. Make them wait and become thirsty for more.
“I can be; I’d rather spend my evening with a beautiful woman anytime.”
“Well let’s hope you save enough lines for tomorrow night,” I joked while reaching in my purse to grab a business card and handing it to him.
“It’s not a line if it’s the truth,” he replied.
“There’s no problem with it, I actually like it. Call me” I said while grabbing the dress and walking toward the front of the store. He remained standing there watching me walk away.
“Make sure you wear that dress.”
After I hit up a few stores, I called Kayleigh to catch up with her from the night before and invite her out for lunch. I didn’t get an answer. I then called another friend of mine, Terisa, Darnell and I’s old therapist to catch up with her. She’s no longer our therapist due to the fact that she and I found that we were too much alike and decided to become good friends. The professional relationship between us was a conflict of interest, plus, the fact that the therapy shit wasn’t working for me and Darnell and I decided to no longer pay for it. I texted her to meet up with me at Dino’s, a popular, upscale Italian restaurant (yes, I love Italian food) in the heart of the outlet. She agreed and replied that she would be there in 20 minutes. I pulled up the Dino’s app and reserved us a table for 1:30 PM. I continued to shop around until I received a text from Darnell saying that we needed to talk. I couldn’t help but think that he just wanted to curse me out for being there and jump down my throat about what he’d seen. Especially after years of failed attempts to try to get me to participate in a threesome and he sees me with his little mistress. The thought is still hilarious to me. I guess that I can’t cry about it or be upset, because I knew along that he was a cheater and a liar. I already cried in the past and I wasn’t about to continue to let it break me. Honestly, I had my divorce papers ready a long time ago. I ignored his text and proceeded on with my shopping.
I headed on over to Dino’s to grab our table and awaited Terisa’s arrival. I requested an outside seat so that we could enjoy the beautiful day. I saw her walking up the stairs and I waived her down to show her where I was.
“Hey Hun! It’s so good to see you!”
“It’s so nice to see you too, T. How have you been?”
“The same girl, always working. What about you?”
“Girl, the SAME! Stressed, overworked, and underappreciated.”
“Darnell?” she said sensing the frustration in my voice.
“Of course. Shit will never change with him.”
“Hello, my name is Sydney and I’ll be your server. Can I start you ladies off with something to drink?”
“I’ll have a glass of Merlot” I said placing my drink order.
“I’ll take the Caramel Apple Martini, please” Terisa replied.
I proceeded to break down the entire night to Terisa, making sure to not leave out any details. I laughed during certain parts of the conversation, especially the part about Darnell being the mystery man at the door. I could tell by the look on Terisa’s face that she was confused as to how I could be okay with all of this. I then proceeded to tell her that I was fine with it. I did, however, manage to leave out the part about me preparing for the divorce.
“I know that you have had a lot of issues in your relationship, but I can’t help but put my therapist hat on and wonder what caused all of this between the two of you. What made you think that two wrongs would make a right, Rae?”
“You’re judging me aren’t you?”
“Of course not, but I am concerned. I mean, I am your former therapist”
The waitress returned to take our orders. I ordered the Chicken Marsala with garlic pecan crusted asparagus and mashed potatoes. Terisa ordered the Grande Italiano or “The Big Italian” which featured cajun grilled shrimp, grilled peppers and onions, fresh tomatoes seasoned with fresh Rosemary, over a bed of her choice of whole wheat handmade pasta, topped off in a garlic, cajun cream sauce.
I thoroughly explained to Terisa that my relationship has been on the rocks and she and I both knew that it would be a matter of time before I found out that Darnell was cheating. She accepted it and asked if I would still be attending the Annual Black Excellence Gala that night. I let her know that I would. Once our food arrived, we dined and she tagged along with me to continue shopping.
It was now 5 PM and I finally made it home. There was still no sign of Darnell, so I figured that he decided to not show his lying, cheating ass face. I showered and by 5:30, my personal hairdresser stopped by to pop a few curls in my hair and my makeup artist beat my face to the gawds! I was looking flawless. The Gala started at 7, and it was now a quarter after 8. I put on the beautiful black gown that I purchased from the mall and added on the remaining jewelry. I ordered a limo for the event tonight, because I wanted to feel special. I do things like that from time to time.
Although, I did want to attend this event with my man on my arm, standing with me side-by-side, I was content with being alone, not worrying about him leaving the table to go take “ER calls” knowing damn well it was one of his sluts. Terisa would be getting honored tonight and I was to be totally there for her not only physically, but mentally. As I pulled up to the Gala, there was a red carpet and handsome men standing out front to assist me with getting out of the limousine. I posed for a few photos before heading into the building. I was escorted to my table, which was front and center so that I could support my friend. The ceremony began and I received a text from Tyler. It was the perfect distraction because I was beginning to think of Darnell and his bullshit. The text read, “You look gorgeous tonight.” I was baffled because how could he have known what I looked like? “Look behind you,” he then sent. I turned around and him sitting at the table behind me, looking as handsome as ever in his perfectly tailored tux. I replied to him, no longer paying attention to the ceremony and exchanged emojis and other little notes with him as if we were in high school. Soon after, Terisa took the stage and gave a heartwarming speech that left not a dry eye in the room. Once the ceremony was over, I congratulated my sista and thanked her for the beautiful speech she gave.
As I walked to my limo, I spotted Tyler. I
“I see you came alone,” he said as he approached me.
“Yes, I see you did too. Did you enjoy yourself?”
“Yes, yes. I very much did. My best friend was Terisa, the one who was honored with the humanitarian award.”
“Oh yes, she gave a wonderful speech. ”
“Yes, she did, didn’t she?” Part of me was hoping that he’d tell me to forget this limo and ride with him to his place and fuck until the sun came up. He stood a little closer to me in which I assumed he wanted to kiss me and I moved in closer as well.
“Well, I just came over here to wish you a good night and to make sure that we were still on for tomorrow night?” Damn it! He just had to be a fucking gentleman! I was really looking forward to feeding him breakfast in bed the next morning. Then again, I already had my wild sex-capade for the weekend. Maybe I needed to chill.
“Oh, of course, just call me,” I replied. “Goodnight” I said while stepping into my limo.
“You have a good night as well, Beautiful.” He shut my door and I rode away to my lonely, empty house. I entered the house, still no sign of Darnell I might add. I headed upstairs to remove my makeup in our bathroom. and pulled off the dress and shoes. I wrapped my hair up in my scarf and bonnet and pulled back the covers to jump in. As I attempted to close my eyes, I couldn’t fall asleep. I turned to the clock which showed 1 AM. I laid on my back staring at the ceiling thinking of how good Tyler looked. I could only imagine his muscular arms wrapped around my small waist and picking me up and fucking the daylights out of me. I wanted him badly, and I wanted him right then and there. I rolled over to my nightstand and texted him, “What’s your address?”
I got up from the bed and slipped into a sexy lingerie gown I had saved in my drawer and put on a long trench coat along with my red stiletto pumps. I pulled off in Darnell’s lambo and allowed my GPS to direct me to Tyler. Yes, I made a dick run in my man’s car. But FUCK him, that’s beside the point. Surprisingly, he only lived 10 minutes away. I parked on the street in front of the house and got out and knocked on the door. There he was, shirtless, exposing those abs I envisioned ever since I left the store this afternoon.
“Take me now” I said before he grabbed me by the waist and pulled me in his home. I took off the coat to reveal my lingerie, but there was no need for me to even wear anything under it. Tyler pinned me up against the door and lifted me up. He fucked me right there. As I felt every one of his 9 inches, I screamed out in enjoyment. I wrapped my hands around his bald head and held on for dear life. We fucked all over the living room before taking a break and heading upstairs to go a few more rounds. We did it. We fucked until the sun came up. I lifted myself up from the bed and climbed on top of his dick and rode it as if I were on one of those mechanical bulls trying not to fall off. I started of slowly, shifting my hips to adjust him completely inside of me, that is, until he started fucking me from under uncontrollably. We came as one and I fell into his arms we were done. We both could not help but laugh, especially since it was now 6 AM.
“I haven’t fucked this long in a looooonnng time” he said while trying to catch his breath.
“Oh my gosh, me neither” I said trying to also regain composure. “You…were…awesome!”
“You were pretty great your damn self. What was that move you just used?”
“I can’t tell you my secrets!” I said. We began laughing.
Soon enough, I heard a loud beeping sound coming from outside towards the front of the house. We both looked at each other and got up to put some on to cover us. He opened the door to reveal the lambo being towed. The person driving the truck was a woman I had never seen before looking pissed.
“Fuck why the hell are you towing my car?!” I yelled as I ran out to the car.
“Is your last name Settles?” The lady yelled out to me as she hopped out of the tow truck.
“Yes, it is and I’d like to know why you are towing my vehicle and on top of that what company do you work for and what is your name!?” I snapped back at her. I was determined to get answers. Tyler stood behind me to keep me from charging at her because I was highly upset.
“Uh huh, I thought I noticed this car. I’m Tia” she replied short with an attitude. Realizing that this was not an assignment for her to pick up the car because of a repossession, but apparently for revenge on my son of a bitch ass husband, I looked at her sternly.
“Oh so you’re one of Darnell’s tramps huh?” she said looking at me. I charged at her again, but Tyler grabbed me just in the nick of time because I swear that I was going to kill this hoe.
“What the hell did you just say to me, Bitch! If anything you’re the fucking hoe. I’m the one with his last name” I said as I yanked Tyler off of me.
“Wait, who is Darnell, Rachel?” Tyler asked in confusion.
“Don’t worry about it.” I said with my hand raised to him. I didn’t have time to explain my whole back story at that time.
“Who is this? You’re cheating on your husband today, Girl?” she taunted at me.
“That’s it,” I said as I lunged at her again, but this time I managed to punch her right in the mouth before Tyler could get to me.
“Rachel, what are you doing? Is this the type of woman you are? You’re just going to let a few words get to you,” Tyler said while doing a horrible job and trying to calm me down.
“Exactly! And I’m with child! You’ll be hearing from my lawyer soon,” Tia said while rubbing her now visible baby bump. I paused in utter disbelief.
“Baby?” I replied.
“Yes, I’m pregnant and the baby is Darnell’s…”
