I had ridden with my best friend, Bill Kuntz, to a golf tournament near Bloomsburg. We had played in a captain and crew fund raiser for his alma mater's basketball team. Two of his old frat buddies met us there and we had managed to shoot three under par. That was good enough to come in third in the third flight. I never understood the scoring procedure at these tournaments, but I knew enough to realize we had excelled at mediocrity. It was like being the third smartest person in the dumb group at school, except we took home a few sleeves of golf balls for our efforts.
Bill and I were nursing a couple beers before heading home when we struck up a conversation with two guys from the Harrisburg area. We covered important topics like baseball and football, and then discussed our occupations. Both Bill and I were surprised to hear that one of the fellows, Jack Andrews, was an executive for Wegmans. Our wives were also employed by that company, but worked in Scranton. Jack worked out of Mechanicsburg.
"You two are from northeast Pennsylvania, by Scranton, aren't you?" quizzed Jack. "I attended a company meeting in Syracuse a few weeks ago and ran into a blonde bombshell from the Scranton Wegmans. She was built like a brick shithouse!"
Bill looked at me and smiled. We both knew he must have had run into Bill's wife, Gwen, and had been impressed by her. But then so was every man that had ever seen her. Gwen has a beauty. Bill turned back to speak to Jack. I was pretty sure he was going to mention that Jack must be referring to his wife before Jack could say anything inappropriate about Gwen. Too late!
"She could suck the chrome off a trailer hitch!" chuckled Jack. "Her tits were really big and sensitive. I probably spent an hour just titty fucking that bitch. What a sweet piece of ass she is. I'm really looking forward to our fall meeting in Harrisburg. That one's for three days, so I'll be able to tap that ass two nights instead of just the one night I had with her this time."
I was afraid Bill was going to smash the asshole over the head with his beer bottle, so I placed a hand on Bill's shoulder. I couldn't blame him if he did, but as a friend, it was my job to try to keep him out of jail. I felt Bill relax slightly.
"Sounds like quite a slut, Jack. Did you happen to catch this little whore's name by any chance?" questioned Bill softly.
"Catch her name? Shit, we had to wear stupid name tags all day long. I remember hers especially well since she had it stuck on her blouse, right over her left tit," continued Jack. "I spent more than a little time looking at her name tag during the meetings. If I hadn't sat down next to her, I probably would've slept through most of the day's events, like I usually do. I just go for the chance to party and score some strange pussy. That, and they insist I attend to keep my job."
"We should be hitting the road, Bill," I quickly urged my friend, hoping to get the hell out of there before things got any worse, if possible.
"Do either of you guys know Gwen Adams," asked Jack, effectively ending my dreams of a clean escape. "That was her name. If you had ever met her, you'd never forget her. If you ever get the chance to sleep with the bitch, be sure to have her suck your cock. She gives great head, and she swallows!"
Two minutes later we were in Bill's Corolla, headed east. I watched his driving closely for the first few minutes, worried about being in an accident. Bill seemed to be navigating quite well, if a tad bit fast. Then, if I had been Bill, I probably would have had the car floored, hoping to get as far away as possible before Jack came around. Bill's knuckles showed some blood, but not too much considering the impact they had made on Jack's mouth. It was a wonder he didn't break his hand or cut his knuckle to the bone on the asshole's teeth. I remembered seeing a tooth lying on the bar as I pulled Jack away from the prone body of that dumb bastard.
I had to marvel at Bill's confidence as I thought back to the altercation at the bar a few minutes ago. Bill had calmly told Jack that Jack must have the blonde confused with his own mother. He even told Jack that he was a limp-dicked, mother fucker and that he was lying about Gwen. Naturally, Jack felt compelled to defend his honor and he smacked Bill square on the chin.
Back in our younger days, this was one of Bill's favorite pastimes. On more than a few occasions, I had watched Bill run his mouth until some guy hit him. Then Bill would grin and clean the guy's clock. Bill had been the youngest of four boys and grew up fighting. He possessed an iron jaw and devastating right uppercut, as Jack learned the hard way. It was good to see that Bill still had it, even after almost 20 years of marriage and towing the line. It only took one swing from Bill to end the battle.
I could tell Bill was not in a talkative mood, so I kept my mouth shut and watched the scenery as I considered the situation. We had introduced ourselves as Tom Casey and Bill Kuntz. Jack even made the standard joke about Bill's last name and we graciously laughed as if we had never heard it before. Gwen had been working at Wegmans for a year when she met Bill. When they married, Gwen told Bill that she was keeping her maiden name at work. She told Bill it would be simpler than changing all her information in the system and it would prevent her from experiencing a great many tasteless jokes about her last name and her anatomy. At work, she was still known as Gwen Adams.
Gwen was a walking wet dream. She and Bill had been married 19 years, had two kids, and she still turned heads wherever she went. She was blonde, long legged and, as Jack previously mentioned, had great tits. Bill and I had been friends since high school. That fact, along with my wife explaining to me in great detail just how she would remove my balls if I ever strayed, kept me from ever attempting anything more than admiring Gwen. I had never guessed she would cheat on Bill. Apparently, it was a complete surprise to Bill as well.
Gwen and Bill had introduced me to my future wife, Theresa, at their wedding. Theresa had just started working at Wegmans with Gwen at that time. We seemed to hit it off pretty good right from the start. Theresa and I were married the following year. We now had a son in eighth grade and a daughter in her sophomore year in high school. Theresa was good looking and had a nice figure, but Gwen was the one that men lusted after.
I tried to put myself in Bill's situation to imagine what he was feeling. Somehow I thought that knowledge might help me to ease his burden a little. He had to be suffering and I was at a loss as to how to react. I liked both Gwen and Bill, and I wanted them to be happily married. That was partially for selfish reasons. We did a lot of things together, and Gwen and Theresa had grown close over the years. I was very happy with the status quo and didn't want it to change. They were also two of my favorite people and I wished them well. This was some mess!
I knew that I would be furious if Theresa had betrayed me. I had never given into the temptations that crossed my path from time to time. Theresa had often made a point of expressing just how badly life would be for me if I ever weakened. I had never thought any woman was worth risking the loss of Theresa. I was pretty certain that she felt the same way. We weren't having hot monkey sex every night, but we still enjoyed our love making.
Bill was paying the price for having a very desirable wife. I knew that Gwen had to be hit on by men all the time. I had seen more than a few examples of that, sometimes while she was standing next to Bill! Maybe it was a good thing that Theresa's legs weren't as long as Gwen's; that her tits weren't as big as Gwen's and her face wasn't as young looking and striking. Theresa was my wife and a mom of two, and she looked the part. I would never be suffering the pain Bill was feeling now as he drove us home.
Home! Shit! What would he do when he got home? Should I leave for my place immediately and let him and Gwen work it out? What if he was angry enough to hit Gwen? Should I hang around to keep some semblance of order? Did I want to hear what was going to be said? Did I want to watch the possible death of a marriage? Would it be that bad? I realized it would be a good idea to determine what Bill had in mind. I needed to talk to him.
"Bill, talk to me, Buddy," I began. "What are you thinking and how are you going to handle Gwen when you get home. You know I can't let you do anything like you did to that asshole back at the golf course. I need to know you have some control of your emotions."
"I couldn't strike Gwen if she was cutting my heart out with a garden tool," answered Bill grimly, "and it feels like that's exactly what she's done. I've been thinking it over and I've decided to pack some things and check into a motel for a few days. I don't know that I can get past this, Tom. This is big. I had no idea that she could do something like this to me, to us. I've never cheated on her, and before today I would've bet my life that she never would cheat on me. Man, this hurts!"
"Is there any way you can forgive her, Bill? There's no doubt in my mind that she loves you to death. Leaving will crush her, Bill, even if she has pretty much done this to herself. You know how guys are always hitting on her. It's one of problems with marrying the best looking woman in the damn county."
"Then how do you stand it, Tom? How do you keep Theresa happy and faithful? How do you keep the damn pussy hounds away from her? She's drop dead gorgeous and you two seem to be doing okay, at least so far," added Bill.
