“Sheila, I told you I have to work tomorrow!…..That’s why I stayed home today; I wanted to make sure me you and Bobby spent time together. Since you’re always complaining that we never see each other.” Klaus was getting irritated with Sheila and her clinginess. He already canceled things with Desire, and was mad for it; taking it out on Sheila.
“You act like we get to spend time together all the time! I’m only asking about tomorrow, because you say you want your son to see what a healthy marriage looks like. It’s not like one day out of the week is gonna do it for him.
If you didn’t plan on giving this your all; Why couldn’t we make plans to get divorced when I asked you about it?!“
“Because, at the time, I was sure we could work this out.”
“We probably could work this out if you were willing to try! But, you don’t even want to do that! The effort always has to come from me. Why is that, Klaus?!
“Why are you sitting up here lying like that!”
“Really, I’m lying right now?!” Sheila had tears in her eyes. She wanted so badly for their marriage to work; but Klaus seemed to refuse to put in any real effort. He assumed, but never knew he was the only man Sheila ever loved.
“So, I guess because you pick one day out the F****** year to be with your wife and kid, that makes you a great husband and father?! Guess again. You are going to have to work hard at this just like you worked hard to get and keep your business. It’s not gonna come easy. You should know that by now!”
“Why do I even bother?! You’re gonna find something wrong with what ever I do any way. What’s the point?” Klaus felt he was giving it all he could. He loved Sheila, but he fell out of love with her a long time ago. His reason for staying was mainly his son, and Sheila was reliable. He knew she would take care of his house and his child just as he would. Also in his mind it was cheaper to keep her. There was no way he was willing to pay alimony.
“The point is, I’m tired of feeling like I’m working on us, when you could care less! I knew we were too young to get married, but I loved you! I was pregnant with your child and I loved you more than I loved myself!
What happened to us?”
“I don’t know what happened to you. I’m the same man you married.”
“I think you need to check again; because you’re nothing like the man I married! The man I married loved me and was there for me whenever I needed him. I don’t know who you are.” Sheila said while looking him up and down.
“Oh, okay since you don’t know who I am it won’t matter if I go!”
“Take yo a** on! You not doing me any favors!”
Bobby was in his room trying to block out all the screaming and arguing; something his parents did a lot of that past year. They believed they were doing him a favor by staying together, but all he wished they would do is get a divorce. He felt things would be better for them and for him if they just called it quits.
“Hello? Who is this?”
“You deleted my number that quick baby? Damn!”
“This you, Klaus?”
“Yeah, who did you think it was?” Klaus was getting a little jealous, because Desire didn’t recognize it was him on the phone.
“Nobody in particular. I was sleep.”
“Oh, okay. Is it alright if I come over?”
“I thought you said you had some things to do at the office?”
“So? Uh…. What happened?”
” I got a colleague to take care of it for me. I wanted to take out my special girl.”
“Oh, now I’m your special girl. What happened a couple of hours ago; when we had plans to meet tonight and you cancelled on me because you had to do work that was more important than me?!”
“Desire, I don’t need this from you too.”
“What you mean me too?!”
“Are you coming over here because your other b**** got something to do?!“
“Why does it have to be all that?!”
“Baby, I’m only saying that work was getting on my nerves…..”
“So you trying to say I’m getting on your nerves?!“
“Who is this? I know this is not my beautiful Queen, Monique.”
“Oh yes it is. Your Queen is just getting tired of being second, third, fourth, and fifth! This is what happens when the Queen isn’t able to see her King because he cancels on her repeatedly!”
“Baby, I told you I’m sorry about that. Listen, I’m outside your house right now. Are you gonna let me in?”
“Depends….. You brought me something?”
“You gonna have to open the door to find out.”
“If I come to this door and I don’t see nothing in your hands, I’m slamming it in your face.”
“Baby, don’t be like that. Open the door! I promise I got something good waiting for you.”
“Okay, I’m comin.” Desire took the time she needed to make herself presentable before letting Klaus in.
Knock… Knock… Knock
“Chill! I’m coming!” Desire was happy he came, but there was no way she was gonna show her excitement to see him. She couldn’t do that; then he would know he had her nose wide open for him. She had to continue to play the pissed off role so she could get what she wanted. She had no idea how long she was going to last, but she was willing to try.
Upon opening the door, she saw he had nothing in his handles.
“What did I say?”
“What you talking about?”
“Oh, now you got amnesia! You think I’m playing.” Desire had to let him know she wasn’t playing games.
“Baby, baby, baby! Wait!” Klaus tried to stop what was inevitable; the door being slammed in his face.
