Things started going to hell for me when my wife told me that we were invited to her best friend Mary's birthday party on Saturday. I said, "That's nice dear. Have a good time." I don't get along with Mary; we don't like each other and have mutually decided to avoid being in each other's presence.
"You have to go with me," Nan said.
"Sorry honey, but you know how things get when Mary and I are in the same room together. If I go it will just spoil the party for everyone."
"Please baby, I need you with me at this party."
"I just don't want to go alone."
I didn't want to go and I told her at least six times that I wouldn't go, but Nan kept after me until I finally broke down and agreed to go with her.
The night of the party I watched Nan get ready and wondered for perhaps the thousandth time as to how I had been so lucky as to get her. Smart, beautiful and sexy - every man's idea of perfection. She took a simple black cocktail dress, a string of pearls and a pair of four-inch CFMs and made them look like garments fit for a queen. By the time she was finished dressing I was so hot that I tried to talk her into a quickie before we went to the party, but she laughed, "Down boy. There will be plenty of time for that later."
On the way to the party Nan sat and stared out the side window which wasn't like her at all. She was always lively and talkative and I finally asked her what was wrong. It seems that Mary had run into one of Nan's old boyfriends and had invited him to the party. He had said that he couldn't make it until Mary told him that Nan would be there and then he had changed his mind and said he would be there.
"So that's why I have to go to this party? Is it to protect you from him, or to keep you from doing something you might regret?" I could see from her expression that I'd hit a bullseye. "Which is it, protector or keeper?" Nan turned her face away from me and we rode the next ten miles in silence. Then she said, "The guy she invited was Dan."
"So I'm going to the party to keep you from doing something stupid, is that it?" Again she turned her face away and stared out the side window.
Nan and I had been married for eight years. The first two years of the marriage I wasn't sure of what I had. I never knew if Nan married me because she was wounded and needed comfort, if she married me to spite Dan or if it was because she loved me. And now, all of a sudden, I wasn't sure again. I had to question the love of a woman who needed me around to keep her away from an old flame.
Nan and Dan had gone together for years. He finally proposed, she accepted and a wedding date was set. They were described as the perfect couple - made for each other - and according to all reports madly in love with each other. Then Dan did something stupid - I was never told what - and Nan gave him back his ring. He packed his bags; left town and six months later I met Nan, fell hopelessly in love with her and pursued her. To my complete and everlasting surprise she liked me enough to date me, go steady and then say yes to my proposal of marriage. That's where the animosity between Mary and me began. She was in Dan's corner and she was constantly telling me that my marriage to Nan wouldn't last.
"As soon as Dan comes back she will leave you in a heart beat."
And now Dan was back and Nan felt I needed to be there to keep her from making a fool out of herself with her old lover.
We pulled up in front of Mary's house and I shut off the motor. I looked over at Nan, "Are you sure you want to do this?" She bit her lip, hesitated, and then she opened her door and got out. Half the people at the party had known Nan and Dan when they were an item and the word must have gone out that the two of them would be at tonight's party. Every eye in the place was on us as we walked in the front door. I quickly scanned the crowd to see if I could spot the idiot who had let Nan get away. I'd never met him or seen him, but I'd heard enough about him that I was sure I would know him when I saw him. And I did. A tall, well-built, good looking guy was standing in a corner talking to some people I didn't know and I knew immediately it was him. This was confirmed almost immediately when Mary walked up to him and said something and I saw his eyes to begin scanning the room. When they settled on Nan I saw him smile. I walked Nan over to the makeshift bar and got us both a drink and as I handed Nan hers I asked, "So how do we play this? Do I hover at your side or do we do what we usually do and I keep one ear open in case you holler for help?"
"Honestly Rob, I'm a big girl now and I can take care of myself."
Yeah sweetie I thought, that's why you had to drag me along to this affair. Mary came rushing up, "Rob, so good of you to come. I'm going to steal your lovely wife for a minute. There's an old friend of hers here and he's just dying to see her." I looked at Nan and she said "I'll be all right" and she walked off with Mary.
I circulated and said hello to the people I knew and I caught occasional glimpses of Dan and Nan standing and talking. Mary and her husband had cleared the furniture out of the living room to make a dance floor and about an hour into the party they put on some CDs, almost all slow songs. Nan and Dan were among the first to hit the floor and almost all eyes in the place were instantly on the three of us. I watched the heads swivel - to me, to them, to me, to them - and it was almost enough to make me laugh. I didn't thought, because I was watching the two of them and wondering if I was going to be going home alone. Dan maneuvered Nan over into the darkest corner of the room and I saw him kiss her and I saw her return the kiss. I saw his hands touch her breasts and cup her ass and Nan did absolutely nothing to stop him or push him away. I looked around and saw that all eyes were on the two of them now and no one was looking at me so I turned my back on the floor show and went to the makeshift bar and got myself another drink.
I didn't bother going back to watch what was happening on the dance floor. I took my drink and went outside on the patio for some fresh air. That was another reason I avoided parties at Mary's; I don't smoke, I don't care for second hand smoke and it seems like all of Mary's friend are two-pack a day people. I saw a chair off to the side on the edge of the patio and I went over and sat down. I was staring up at the sky trying to find the North Star when Nan and Dan came out. They embraced, they kissed and I saw him start to raise the hem of her skirt. Nan said, "No Dan, don't do that" but he didn't stop and she did nothing to stop him.
I had already made up my mind that unless Nan called for help I wasn't going to anything. I either had a marriage or I didn't and if I did have one and it was going to survive it was going to be up to Nan to see that it held together. She had to shut him down tonight and do it in such a way that he wouldn't keep calling. If she didn't do that, based on what I'd seen so far tonight, she would be cheating on before the end of the week - if not tonight.
Her dress was up to her waist and he slid his hand down the front of her panties and Nan gave a little start as his hand reached her mound. I sat her feet move apart, no doubt to give a finger or two better access. Nan stood there for a minute or two not moving and then she put both hands on his chest and pushed him back away from her. "What's the matter babe, you know you want me."
"Just because I want you doesn't mean you are good for me. I want chocolate cake too, but I don't want the pounds that come with it. The same with you; I want you, but I don't want what comes with you." He laughed, "Don't sweat gaining weight babe, I'll use a rubber" and he pulled her to him and kissed her. Nan returned the kiss and it was a long passionate one.
I began to wonder if there was a conspiracy going on. These two had been out here long enough now for him to finger fuck her and to neck, but not another soul had come outside. I know that all eyes were probably on them when they came out; had everyone agreed to stay inside and let the lovebirds have their privacy?
I heard a zipper and since it wasn't mine I knew it had to be Dan's. A moment later I saw his cock bobbing in the moonlight and he took one of Nan's hands and put it on his cock. She let go and he put her hand on him a second time and again she let go. The third time her fingers curled around him and she started to stroke him as he again slid his hand down the front of her undies. I sat there and watched her jack him off while he finger fucked her and the two of them swapped tongues and I started making a mental list of what I was going to have to do. Get a lawyer, find an apartment; I'd need sheets, towels and the like and I didn't want anything from our house that would remind me of Nan. Dan pulled his hand out of Nan's panties and put both hands on her shoulders and tried to push her down, but Nan resisted him and let go of his cock.
"We had better go inside before my husband misses me and comes looking for me."
She stepped back from him, adjusted her clothes and left him standing there as she went back inside.
Not wanting to add to the gossip (or look like a fool) I got up after Dan went inside and walked around to the front of the house and went in the front door to rejoin the party. I could just imagine the talk if I had followed the two of them in from the patio. I got another drink and then went looking for Nan. She was out on the dance floor with Mary's husband and I looked around for Dan and saw him over in a corner talking to Mary - plotting against me no doubt. The song ended and Nan saw me and came over.
"Are you upset with me?"
