I woke up the next morning with a headache. I didn’t remember how I got home? Who changed my clothes? why was I on the couch? Anything I did remember was kinda blurry. I had obviously gotten way too drunk yesterday.
Sam leaving me makes my screwed up life even more miserable. So I decided to go to a bar and drink till I couldn’t feel the pain. I look around the living room, how did I get here? I quietly ask myself.
I slowly got up holding my head and started up the stairs. When I get to our room, I see her sleeping soundly in our bed. My anger fills me once again, she must be so happy with herself to sleep that good, while my days are filled with torment. I turn away from her deciding not to look at her, there’s nothing I can do about it. I can’t lay a hand on her.
I take a cold shower to refresh myself. Then I get dressed and grab my key on the way out the door. I have to get out of this fucking house. I cannot look at her even a second longer. If I stay away from her at least she will know how angry I am.
The same routine everyday for months he goes to work early and gets home drunk at night, I don’t get any attention from him.
Every weekend he’s at the house I try to cook for him but he doesn’t even look at it. I even ask his mom what his favorite dish is, but still nothing.
I learn how to massage thinking that should get his attention, but when I go to touch him he moves away from me. I don’t know what else to do.
I think I need advice from someone, so
I decided to call my best friend Hannah and ask her to meet with me. My thoughts distract me as I drive to the mall, I park and go inside to look for her. I spot her sitting on a bench right inside the door playing on her phone. She looks up and sees me and we automatically embrace each other.
“Hello,” she says before kissing me on the cheeks. “So tell me how is married life so far, and how did you find the performance of my brother? ” she asked me turning red and giggling.
I look at her with the sadness clear in my eyes.
“Your brother wouldn’t even touch the tip of my nail,” I say to her ashamed.
Her eyes zeroed in shock.
“What the fuck is wrong with him? I don’t know why he did that to you but I promise you I will nag at him until I get to the buttom of it.” She took her phone out to call him but I shook my head.
“His girlfriend left him after the wedding, that’s why he’s so angry now. For months now he goes out early to work and gets home late every night drunk,” my voice cracks and I kept my head down so that she couldn’t see the unshed tears.
“Good for him that she is gone now, he can’t be married and have a girlfriend anyway. What you need now is to seduce him. Make him fall for you.” I looked at her quizzically.
“How will I do that?”
“I will help you,” she said and gave me a wink.
We walk around the mall looking at women’s clothing until we stopped at a lingerie rack, with a very revealing piece hanging in front. I looked at her in shock and she just smiled and shook her head.
“Even though my brother is hard headed he is still a man. A man couldn’t resist a woman wearing such seductive clothing You will see, he’ll run over and ravage you when he sees you in that attire.” She says to me in a teasing way.
We rummaged through the rack until we had at least 7 different outfits. One for everyday, I think. After that we ate lunch and enjoyed each other’s company. We spent the whole day talking about the art of seduction among other things. I really missed her.
It was around seven when we decided to part ways and head home.
When I got home I prepared myself for his arrival. I showered, put on makeup, and did my hair. I wore the first piece that we picked out. It was a tight dress that fell to mid thigh, it was black and lacy with a nude see through material here and there to tease. As the last touch I put on some perfume. I saw myself in the mirror and felt content in what I saw.
I lit some rose scented candles and lounged on the bed. He always came home about ten it’s 9:30 pm now so I tried to distract myself with a book as I waited on him.
When I heard the sound of the tires crunching on gravel outside I started to move. I sit on the edge of the bed facing the door.
He comes up the stairs and freezes in the doorway his eyes are trained on me. Hannah was right he’s still a man, he can’t resist a beautiful woman in front of him. I started to walk towards him. He can’t seem to remove his eyes from my body, they slowly look me up and down drinking me in.When I was in front of him I could see his throat bob as he swallows.
I’m quite happy because this was the first time that I had seen my husband like this.
“You want some help?” I ask, but he didn’t reply, he just stands there in shock like he’s seen a ghost, I slowly start to take off his coat and necktie. He doesn’t move to stop me so I start to unbutton his powder blue polo shirt. I saw ball his fist and clench his jaw. He had regained his sanity, he put his hand on my shoulders and push me away. Then he quickly stomped out of the room.
After a few minutes I heard the sound of the car accelerating I looked out the window and I saw his car speeding away.
I sighed deep and threw myself on the bed, this really is impossible. He even surpassed my plan on seducing him. But I remembered what I saw, how he reacted to me. I know he will give up and his walls will crumble. I just need patience and more strategies I think.
Even though he’d left me tonight I felt happy. Now I know that I can seduce him. So I went to sleep with a smile on my lips.
It’s been a week, Stephen hasn’t been home since the night I tried to seduce him. I guess he’s avoiding me.
I’ve waited patiently for him to come home, kept it quiet but not for long. I need to know where he is and what he’s doing? Where he is staying, is he with someone else?
I need to call Hannah, so I got my phone and dialed her number.
“Hi there bestie.”
“Oh look who’s calling, I thought you’d forgotten about me.”
“How could you say that? I’ll never forget you.”
“So tell me why you haven’t bothered to call a single time this week? What happen to our plan? Did you do it? Did it work? Is that why you haven’t called?” she says giggling.
“Well, about that,” I hesitated, I didn’t know how to talk about this. I sighed and just blurted it out “He left the house that night and hasn’t been back”
“Oh my God he’s really annoying, why did he do that to you? I’m so sorry! ” she almost shouted in anger.
“Hannah is he there? Please tell to him to come home. Tell him I will never wear a dress like that again, just please come home. I miss him.”
“Marilyn, your really are blinded by your love for him. There are lots of men out there, you don’t have to be stuck with a man that doesn’t care for you. He’s not worthy of you.”
“No Hannah, I don’t care! I love him! I can’t take it if I lose him, he’s my first love and I want only him! Please help me!”
“Fine! I’ll call him and tell him to come back home, before I tell daddy” she says sounding defeated.
“Thank you bestie.”
“Now you call me bestie, hmmm. By the way, I hear you are planning to go back to work at your father’s company, is that true?”
“Well yes, I think I should find a way to busy myself.”
“That’s good, the world doesn’t revolve around my brother, I promise. “
I chuckled before defending myself, “Hey, I’m not like that!”
“Really? Do you even hear yourself? Since you got married you don’t even call me, we don’t hangout. I thought you had a great time with my brother and then now the situation is like this!” She sounded really angry and hurt. I can just imagine how she’s posed with her hands on her hips and her eyebrows raise.”
I told her to come over and we spent the day together eating ice cream, watching movies, and talking. I was very happy being with her again it brightened my day.
Another week goes by before Stephen finally comes home. I was very ecstatic to see him pulling in the driveway. I tried to talk to him but he just ignoring me.
I decided to just give him a break at least I can see him everyday.
I started to work on my father’s company, just like my father I had very good instincts when it came to business. I created many project which fortunately, most the board of directors liked. They said I had very good marketing strategies, our sales were higher the whole year because of me.
I earned lots of praises from my father’s business partners. And of course I earn lots of money on my own which I use to help my husband discreetly.
I bought thirty percent of stock in his company which he open last year, but he didn’t know that I was the one who bought it. I want him to be happy and I think it’s only the way for him to accept me.
He’s still cold to me after a year of marriage but he’s talking to me now, a little. We eat breakfast everyday, he asks me how the previous day was and what my plans are for the that day. Even though it’s a little gesture, for me it’s a very big thing.
And for our anniversary, I have a gift for him.
