The night before was hectic. Passion tried to keep her affair with Jaylen quiet, but someone had already spread the word to her husband. She tried getting it out of him who it was, but it was no use, he wasn’t budging. Partly because he was pissed the guy was even in the house.
Years before, he initially asked for the marriage to be one of convenience; but at the time he believed Passion would be so in love with him, he would be doing most of the dating. Lets just say, that isn’t the way it went down. Now he was caught between a rock and a hard place, because he was the one who opened Pandora’s Box. Now to try to close it; he knew it was not going to go over well with his wife.
“Hey Babe….” Passion was doing her best at trying to keep the peace; but one thing she didn’t take too kindly to, was being ignored. Something Kevall was great at. “Oh, so you ignoring me now?!”
He was so pissed, he didn’t want to say anything to her. He actually wanted her to hurt like he was hurting; but being the mature, logical man he was he knew that wouldn’t be the right thing to do.
“Passion you gotta understand; by having your little f***buddy here last night, it makes it look like you playin me!”
“Bae, that is the last thing I was trying to do. I would never do that to you; you have been to good to me for me to do you like that.”
“Thank you for saying that. But that isn’t the picture people from the party last night, are going to paint. I’m sure they’re talking s*** about us right now; really about you.”
“What you mean, ‘Me’?”
“I’m sure they’re thinking you’re dogging me out, and I’m too green to read between the lines.”
“I don’t care what no one has to say. This is my life; and you shouldn’t either.”
“That sounds good in theory; but you know how looking bad to your employees could transition into not so good attention for your business?”
“Yeah,.. I guess you’re right. Let me go and see if I can put these rumors to rest.”
“Good, you go ahead and do that; but not until you do something for me first.” It had been a really long time since Kevall saw his wife in her natural state. Usually, they would go days without seeing each other. So to see her now with out any makeup wearing his college sweatershirt, it made him fall in love all over again. “You are so… beautiful.”
“Ahhh, thanks babe. You are so sweet.”
“I’m not saying it to be sweet, i’m saying it because I mean it. You are more beautiful now than the day we got married.”
Passion had no idea how to react. It wasn’t the compliment that surprised her, it was the love and sincerity she saw in his eyes as he said it.
“And you are just as sexy as the day I met you.”
Kevall felt it was finally time to ask the dreaded question. He wasn’t sure what her answer would be, but he figured he would give it a go.
“Babe, how would you feel… about us shutting all our “friends” out, so we can work on us?”
“What you mean?” She knew exactly what he meant. She was actually trying to buy some time, so she could find a nicer way to reject the idea.
“Come on Passion, you know exactly what I mean. I’m happy with having only you. “I only want you.
I realized that the other night.”
“Are you serious? We’ve been married for twenty plus years. Doing this polyamory thing for the last ten; and now you want only me. ”
“You’re saying it like it’s an inconvenience to you.”
“Well… it is? Can I think about it?”
“I don’t see what’s to think about. I’m your husband, and you love me; right?”
“Of course I do. But Momma’s having to much fun, and I don’t believe i’m done playing yet.”
