Thank you to everyone who read my story 'The EPT Test'. It could have gone many different directions. I received dozens of comments with different scenarios. This is an alternative story and is a stand alone story for those who didn't read the original. Much of the first story is incorporated in this one. Thank you to Mr. Wolf for editing this story.
I know most of us have regrets in life and like me often think about them but know there is nothing we can do about them. There are no do over's. My life is filled with good and bad times. I often wonder which outweigh the other.
A little background; I had a good childhood, three sisters and two brothers. We fought a lot but that's what siblings do. High school was ok but nothing special for me. I changed schools a couple of times so never got involved in extracurricular activities.
Even though I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life I started college and met a girl my freshman year. As luck would have it she got pregnant and we both dropped out of college and got married. I couldn't afford college and provide for a family too. I had to make a choice. I liked Shannon a lot and wanted to do what was right by her.
Shannon was three years older than me but was only going to college part time taking a few courses each semester. She lived with one of her girlfriends; they shared an apartment and both had jobs as waitresses. Her family was even larger than mine; she had three brothers and three sisters.
Life really wasn't that bad. My dad got me a job at the auto factory and it paid good money. One of my sisters had apartments that they rented out so we had a place to live at a reasonable price.
I worked the afternoon shift at the factory so I saw Shannon during the day. She usually waited up for me till I came home unless I worked over, which I did quite often. The money was too good to pass up; I had a family to support.
I worked all the overtime I could get and worked a lot of weekends. I was glad that Shannon had a lot of family around because I didn't want her to be alone all the time. We did our best to do things together when I wasn't working. We were lucky and after a few years were eventually able to buy a home. Shannon's parents helped us with the down payment.
One thing we did a lot was make love. Shannon rarely denied me. We had three kids in five years. After the last one I had a vasectomy. Shannon and I both decided that three kids were enough. We had two girls, Cindy and Chris, and our son we named Jimmy. Shannon was a great mother and lover.
While being a stay at home mom, until all the kids started school, she decided to take college courses on line from a local University. She did attend a few classes and her mother watched the kids. Shannon was bound and determined to get her degree. Her parents knew that money was tight for a young married couple and did pay for the courses that Shannon took.
When our son, Jimmy turned five Shannon had received her degree in Business Management. I was proud of her and we attended her graduation.
She said she was going to look for a part-time job since all the kids were in school.
We argued about it a little but Shannon was right; she spent the last ten years of her life changing diapers and being home with the kids. She wanted to be around some adults once in a while.
I was an ok father and did help watch the kids when I was home. I spent most of my time working and trying to provide for my family. I remembered that I hardly did much with my dad while growing up. He was always working too. I guess I developed that trait.
Shannon did get a part-time job at a real estate and insurance agency. It was a decent sized firm with over thirty employees. She was a secretary that answered the phones and did some of the accounting work. She said she loved her job.
The company worked with her so that she was always there for the kids to help them off to school. Her mom would come over when the kids returned home from school. Shannon would be home usually by five o'clock or so. She started out working three days a week, but eventually worked five.
It was working out quite well. I would get up early so I could at least see the kids before they were off to school. Shannon wasn't waiting up for me most nights since she started working. Maybe once a week we did get together to make love.
On weekends when I didn't work, which wasn't very often, we would take the kids somewhere so we could be a family for the day. We went to the aquarium, zoo, amusement parks, movies and to other local events. I really loved Shannon and the kids.
Most guys at work would go to the bar for drinks after getting off of work but I always came home. I wanted to see my family in the morning even when I finished at three in the morning. I would often go lay back down after Shannon left for work but I tried to do what was right.
During the holiday season between Thanksgiving and New Years I did get some days off. We spent them shopping and visiting family. One particular weekend Shannon asked me to go to her company Christmas party. It was a weekend that I had a chance to work. We had gone to my company Christmas party the week before so when I told Shannon I had to work during hers, she got mad at me.
She said she was going anyway and her mom said she would watch the kids. I told her I didn't want her drinking and driving. I really didn't want her to go at all, but that was her decision to make. She was somewhat of a happy drunk but I didn't want her on the road. The party was being held at the Ramada Inn, which was about thirty miles away. She said she and her friend Anna were getting a room for the night, so they could have a good time and not drive anywhere.
Again she told me to call off work and I could share the room with her and Anna could find her own room. I told her we could use the money and I wasn't calling off work. Needless to say she was pissed at me.
I hadn't met most of the people that Shannon worked with. She had only worked there since September. I had met Anna when she came by to pick Shannon up for work a couple of times. It was when Shannon needed her car repaired and Anna offered to give her a ride to work.
Anna was a good looking woman who had been divorced a couple of years. She didn't have any kids and she seemed quite nice. She and Shannon became good friends. I remember thinking when I saw her, "I'd do her", but most guys always thought like that.
I've seen a lot of women that I wouldn't mind having sex with but I would never cheat on Shannon. I'd only been with a couple of women before meeting Shannon so my sexual history was pretty limited.
Shannon never talked about her past boyfriends but I know she wasn't a virgin when we were first together. One of her sisters kind of let it slip out saying, "He's cute, have you slept with him yet?" I knew it embarrassed Shannon but I could kind of read between the lines.
On Saturday, the day of her Christmas party, I kissed her and apologized again for having to work. She wasn't very happy with me as I left for work. She said she would be home before noon the next day.
I went to work and had to work over. I called my mother in law and told her I would pick the kids up in the morning. There was no reason to wake the kids in the middle of the night.
After getting home, I went straight to bed; boy was I tired. I woke up Sunday around ten o'clock and quickly got dressed and went to pick up the kids at their grandmother's house. They were eating breakfast and she asked me if I would like some pancakes.
Needless to say I hadn't eaten and ate some eggs and pancakes. I thanked my mother in law for watching the kids. She really liked the kids and said it was never a problem to watch them.
When we arrived back at the house Shannon was home. She hugged all the kids but was a bit distant with me. I figured she was still a bit mad at me. I did ask her how the party went and she said it was fine although she got tired of explaining to everyone why her husband didn't come.
Again I apologized but I figured she was just throwing digs my way. She said she had a lot of dance partners and really enjoyed herself. I asked her if she drank too much and she told me she limited her drinking since I wasn't there to protect her and she had to drive home this morning.
That was about all she said about the party. She seemed to stay mad for a couple of days, then things were pretty much back to normal. Wednesday night she had waited up for me and we had sex. I couldn't believe that she initiated it. After I got out of the shower and into bed she began to rub my cock through my briefs.
She pulled down my briefs and began to give me oral sex. This was fairly rare to get oral sex from Shannon. Usually it didn't happen unless she had drunk too much. She sat up and pulled up her nightgown; she wasn't wearing any panties.
I watched her get up and lower herself onto my cock. Damn! It felt so good. As she was riding my cock I reached up and slid my hands under her nightgown and rubbed her tits. I lasted all of five minutes before coming hard and shooting my load deep into her pussy. I knew she was having an orgasm by her actions and the pulsating of her pussy.
After coming she lay on my chest. I asked her what brought that on, I wasn't complaining and that it was a great surprise. She told me that she felt that she was a little hard on me for the past week. She understood I worked to provide for the family. It was her way of saying, "I'm sorry".
