At my lady’s request, here is the second part of a romance story I was asked to write. Please bear with me, this is not my type of writing, but I am always up for a challenge, so here goes…
Tom came to her, arms wide open, and Bobbie accepted his request. His lips were as strong as his arms, as they locked in a loving embrace. “I don’t know you well enough…” she muttered, but he held his finger to his lips and assured her that he would not do anything that she didn’t want.
She wanted him, so she gave herself to him that night. The luxurious bedroom was all that she imagined, and she let herself fall into his bed. He was quick to join her, and the two made passionate love all night.
At morning, she awoke, alone in a stranger’s bedroom. Tom was nowhere to be found. She called out his name, but there was no response. Bobbie began to panic. “How could I let this happen?” She questioned to herself, “I have never given myself to a stranger before, why did I allow this to happen?” She thought.
Getting her clothing together was difficult because it was strewn across the entire apartment. When she finished, she called a cab and headed home, embarrassed.
Later that day, while at work, Tom came into the shop. She had been trying to keep busy so her mind did not wander back to last night, but it was difficult to do so. “What happened to you this morning?” she asked Tom, angrily.
“I couldn’t let you see, I couldn’t let you know my secret.” He said, mysteriously. “When you came to my home, it was dark, so the secret was safe, but in morning, I…I can’t keep a relationship with you; you are too good, too beautiful, and too innocent to bring you into this…” He said.
Bobbie thought for a minute, hoping to find something to say. “I thought you used me for a one night stand, tell me that’s not what it was, that would make me feel so cheap and worthless.” She replied.
“Cheap and worthless? You? Never ”He said,“ You are none of those things, you are the most beautiful creature that has ever adorned my home, and my heart” He said, melting her heart once again
“Then why did you leave before I woke up?” she asked.
“It’s my tattoo, among other things, I didn’t want you to see.” He said.
“It can’t be that bad, let me look” She asked.
Just before he was about to remove his shirt, and expose his muscular back, and the supposedly hideous tattoo, Bobbie’s store manager came into the room.
Bill was an enormous man with cold black eyes. Bobbie shuddered at his arrival, and even Tom was shocked by his appearance.
“A new customer?” he asked, referring to Tom.
“Yes, I have horses, and I need a full time groomer at my stables” Tom replied, surprising Bobbie.
“I am sure we can accommodate you, as we have two qualified horse groomers on staff. You already know Bobbie, but since she is pretty much booked this week, let me introduce you to Stella.” The stocky manager said.
“Not Stella”, Bobbie thought to herself, “She is a she-wolf who will work to steal Tom for herself”
“I am free in the afternoons” Bobbie shouted, not realizing her tone. “I can groom you, I mean your horses” she said, sounding foolish to herself and not caring.
“No way” Bill said, “Tom, meet Stella” And with this, Bill motioned for Stella to come out of her office.
She stood tall at 5’9”, with long slender legs that she showed off with those short skirts she wore. She had the prettiest face, almost perfect, with long blond hair caressing her shoulders. She was every man’s dream. Bobbie often envied her, not only for her youthful and beauty, but for her apparent power to have any man that she desired. Bobbie noticed that each day, Stella was escorted to work by a different guy, each more handsome than the last.
Bobbie feared the worse, and as always in her disappointing life, the worse was about to happen, soon.
“Tom, meet Stella. This very bright and beautiful lady has been working with us for a short while, but in that time, she has brought in a ton of customers, and never a bad response from any of them” The manager said, almost bragging.
“I bet she never got a bad response from any of them, she probably had sex with each of them” Bobbie thought, in a jealous manner.
Things got worse when Stella took Tom by the hand and left the shop. Tom glanced back at Bobbie, but it was clear that his attention was set firmly on Stella.
To Be continued, I have to take an antacid…this dribble is upsetting my stomach
