Occasionally, I get a story idea sent to me by a reader. This story is based on one such offering. It is completely fiction, and the allusion to the infamous Bonnie and
Clyde is per their names only; put another way, this story has no relationship whatsoever to the gangster pair of the 1930s. Similarly, the Ana Campanas character in the story is no relation to the "Woman in Red" of John Dilinger fame either. At any rate, here goes.
"Such is the pow'r of love in gentle mind that it can alter all the course of kind."
"I'm sorry mister Campanas. I just can't see my way clear to sign with you.
You've always been a reliable distributor, but your rate structure doesn't work for me tax-wise. My accountant has advised me against this kind of contract until after the first of the year and then only if the law is changed which at the moment, he assures me, is iffy," said mister Crocker.
"Joe, we can work the contract some to better suit you. You've always been satisfied with our work before?" said Michael Campanas.
"I'm sorry, Michael. It's just not a good time. Hopefully we'll be able to connect next year," said mister Crocker.
"May I ask who your accountant might be?" said Michael.
"Clyde Armistead. He's the best around," said mister Crocker.
"Armistead? Clyde Armistead?" said Michael.
"Yes," said Joe Crocker. Michael Campanas slowly shook his head. He knew
Armistead; well, he knew him to see him. Some of his colleagues used the man for their quantity control.
"I know him slightly. Got a pretty wife as I recall," said Michael Campanas, now trying to lighten the mood himself.
"Yes, I've met her. She's very pretty indeed," said Joseph Crocker.
"She's not an accountant though," said Michael, wondering why Joe Crocker would ever have met her.
"No, no, she works for Roma's salon on third. She's my wife's stylist," said mister
Crocker. "My wife and I had dinner with them a few weeks ago." He didn't see the look in the other man's eyes. "I've never met your wife, have I mister Campanas?"
"Who? Ana? No, I don't think so. She kinda stays clear of my business interests.
She's got a handful just taking care of the kids: we got five of 'em," said Michael
"Hubby do this for you?" said Michael.
"Shut up and fuck me," said Bonnie Armistead.
"Not until you tell me who does you the best," he said.
"You do, asshole, now get busy and do your duty," she said
"And, your hubby?" he said.
"I already answered you. You do me best. Isn't that enough?" she said.
He got off the bed and reached for the pile of clothes on the floor. He didn't even look at her, but he was laughing inside.
"What are you doing! Get back here!" she said.
He ignored her.
"Okay, okay, his tiny cock is near useless and he has almost zero talent when it comes to bedroom skills," she said. "Now are you satisfied?"
"Yes, as a matter-of-fact I am," he said. "He and my wife would make a pair for sure. They could be useless in bed together! Wonder how he'd like to be raisin' a bus load of rug rats." He broke out laughing.
"Shut the fuck up, asshole, and screw me. Do it now!" she commanded.
He made a big production of remounting her and ramming his cock home. She grunted and groaned at the sudden roughness of the man. A roughness she had come to love. The man himself? Hell no, she didn't love him; she didn't even like him. He was good at animalistic sex, but he was virtually worthless in any other respect; she wondered what his wife would do if she knew he was spreading his pollen. Her Clyde had it all over him as a man and a husband. But, sadly, very sadly, Clyde was less than nothing in the love making department.
"You gotta stop putting Clyde down every time we do it," she said as they dressed. "What did he ever do to you? Let me answer my own question—nothing."
"You wanna keep doing this or not," said Michael, ignoring her apparent ire.
"Well, yes, but I'd really appreciate it if you'd stop talking smack about him while you and I are together. Please!" she said.
"Okay, then, this is the deal. I'll—we'll—stop talking smack about him, but you've got tell him about us and tell him that he can't have sex with you anymore. He's a wimp and a cuckold. I hate sharing a woman of your quality with a nothing like Clyde Armistead.
"You asked what he ever did to me. You're forgetting that he cost me the Crocker contract? Him messing with my business like he did has to have a consequence. This is it. I get his wife for sex, and he gets to eat my cum out of her when I'm done. But except for that, your pussy is off limits to him. Got it?" She was horrified.
"He'd never go for being cut off like that! Not ever" she said. "You've gone too far this time, Michael. The answer is no!" He shrugged. "And, he didn't cost you that contract. He's an accountant, and advised his client to watch his pennies and that's all: I was there; I heard it all. He didn't know that you were courting the Crocker account; he still doesn't!"
"Too bad, but it is still your choice. It's been nice doing you," he said. "I'll let myself out." She stood there open-mouthed and watched him leave.
"Shit!" she said loud enough to wake the dead two states away. Cutting her husband off! Oh yeah, that would go over real big with that good man. Well, it would go over good if she wanted a divorce! Which she sure as hell did not! But...
Could she get along without Michael's cock? Very few ten inch cocks existed at all let alone attached to a man-beast who could give a woman multiple orgasms virtually every time he did her. No, she had to have it. And, she had to make sure that her man, her husband, her real man, didn't leave her. Fucking asshole, Michael; he was blackmailing her; that was the only possible description of what he was doing to her.
I was just finishing up dinner. I leaned back in my seat and smiled at the most beautiful woman in the world, my wife, Bonnie Armistead.
"That dinner was fantastic, honey. I mean really first rate," I said.
"Well, thank you mister man," she said. "Say, honey, can I ask you a question?"
"Of course. What?" I said.
"Well, I was talking to Marie Bradshaw today. You know my friend at the salon: husband's still in Iraq. She knows Michael Campanas. That wholesaler guy we met last year at her birthday party. The one who handles all of those big clothier contracts for the department stores," said Bonnie.
'Okay?" I said.
"Well, she said that Joe Crocker shined him on because of something you said."
"Something I said?" I said. "How so?"
"Said you told him not to sign with mister Campanas," said Bonnie. I started nodding my understanding of her words.
"No, no, I didn't tell him to sign or not sign with anybody. You were there when I met with Joe and his wife last tax time," I said.
"Yes, I was, but for some reason mister Campanas evidently blames you for Joe going with another wholesaler."
"I'm not sure I follow you, honey, but I never advised Joe to go or not go with any particular somebody. I just told him he had to be careful with his reserve funds because it was a tight market and add to that the tax bite this year could be more than a little problematical.
"But, tell me, why is Marie Bradshaw talking to you about this kind of stuff in the first place?" I said.
"Well, Mic ... mister Campanas, is kinda upset with you," she said, "Oh, and Marie knows him pretty good."
"Well, you can tell Marie that I work for my clients not her friend this Campanas guy. I'd be derelict if I didn't," I said. She smiled, but it was a strained smile. Something was up, and it didn't look to be something that I was going to be liking much. And, yes, I did catch her almost refer to mister Campanas by his first name.
We finished cleaning up and headed upstairs. I stripped preparatory to what I intended would be the second night in a row of a very good and very raw sex and romance. She was in the bathroom.
When she came out she was wearing her long nightie, a sure sign that she was not interested. She caught my look.
"Honey I'm just a little too tired tonight. Okay? We did it last night. Just give me a break tonight. Okay?" she said in a plaintive voice.
Her tone, her look, something cued me. "What's going on, Bon," I said. "Something's not right." For no good reason, I decided to take a flyer. "Does this have anything to do with that Campanas thing?" She sighed.
She began pacing back and forth. I could see that she was gearing up to lay something heavy on me. What I never would have imagined, guessed, dreamed in my most horrifying of nightmares was what she did in fact lay on me.
"Honey, I love you. I love no one else. And except for Bobby Russell in the ninth grade, I never have loved anyone else. And, I never will if it comes to that," she said. The words were right, the tone—not.
"But Honey—well—I have a lover. It's Michael Campanas," she said.
"What did you say?" I said.
"Please, don't get mad, and don't worry. He's nothing to us," she said.
"You're not kidding are you?" I said.
"No. But it doesn't have to affect us hardly at all," she said.
"Hardly at all? What does that mean? You mean except for the fact that we'll be divorcing now," I said. Her look screamed shock at my words, but she controlled her tone.
"Heavens no! I don't want a divorce, and I know you don't want one either," she said.
"Well, unless I'm missing something really big here, you've got one anyway," I said.
"Okay, okay. I need to explain myself. I knew I would. And, now I'm going to. Okay?" she said. I was shooting daggers at her with my eyes but saying nothing. I nodded for her to go on.
"Okay, it's like this," she started. "Michael and I have something going on the side. He's got equipment that few other human males have. I wanted—no, needed—to experience it; so I did."
"And this has been going on how long?" I said, not really caring anymore one way or the other. I wasn't quite snorting, but close.
"Since the Bradshaw's party last year. The one I mentioned earlier," she said. I nodded. I was seething inside: I'd been a cuckold for a year and not a clue.
"Honey, it doesn't have to affect us at all," she said.
"Sloppy seconds? I've been getting them right along haven't I?" I said. She looked away. "All those times I thought you were ultra-wet because you were turned on by me. In reality you were laughing at me while I sucked him out of you.
"Fuck!" I said. "Bonnie, did I ever really know you? I mean you feeding me sloppy seconds. And, you say this doesn't affect us? Are you crazy?"
"I never, ever laughed at you. I always treated you with respect. Yes, there were some sloppies, but really only a few. Mainly because you wouldn't take no for an answer, like last night. And well, I didn't see any harm in it," she said.
"You cheated on me, Bonnie, that's the harm. You let me suck his cum out of you, and you knew I would, because I always eat you to make sure you get off, that's also a harm, i.e., you knowing exactly what you were doing to me. You have any idea how humiliating this is for me? Does he know you made me eat his cum out of you?" I said. She looked away—again.
"Fuck-fuck-fuck! How could you do this shit, Bon, I really loved you. I mean with all of my heart. Wait! You said ' ... like last night.' You fucked him yesterday didn't you?" I said.
"Yes, and today, today's when he told me about Crocker. He's very angry with you, Clyde. I guess he kind of wants revenge because of the contract," she said. "But I told him no way. I defended you."
"A fucking cuckold. I'm a fucking cuckold; I will never be able to live this down. Never!" I said.
"Yes you can and yes you will. You are my man, my husband. I need you, and you need me. So what if Michael screws me. He never gets the real me, only you get that," she said.
"You being my cuckold makes me feel closer to you than ever. You should be proud to be my cuckold, not feeling embarrassed about it," she said.
"Are you serious? You need help. I mean really, I'm almost willing to forgive you, because I think you are off your rocker," I said.
"Clyde, there will be no divorce. And, to be honest, I'm glad that this has happened. Now, I don't have to be sneaking around. I can finally be upfront with you about what we need to do. How we need to be together. You need to deal with it, Clyde; you need to deal with this—situation. But really, it will make hardly any difference to the real us whatsoever. You've been eating him out of me off and on for a year. It hasn't killed you, and it's been a huge turn on for me. So just sit back and enjoy the ride," she said. "Like I said, deal with it."
"What part of we're getting a divorce didn't you get, Bonnie. We're splitsville. Got it?" I said. "Your arrogance pushed this—situation—as you call it beyond the pale. We're done."
"Clyde, it's you that don't get it. I will fight you on a divorce because I want and need you. But, if you insist on such a course, and if you somehow manage to get one, a divorce, you will force me to take you for everything you've got. I'll make it so hard on you that you will be crawling back to me on your hands and knees begging for forgiveness and a second chance; and yes, to be my cuckold.
Clyde, I won't be raping you in a divorce because I want to; I don't, but I will if you leave me no choice. Clyde, I will do my damnedest to make sure you remain mine. But please, again, I want you and need you; and, you need me too," she said.
"You need me, but you'll rape me in a divorce. You want me, but you'll deny me intercourse with you: make me a de facto eunuch. All to please that asshole! Wonderful, Bonnie.
"Let me put it this way. You may try to hurt me in a divorce or somehow even block it. But, I swear to you the following; you won't like living with me, not with the hatred that's building in me at this moment. The husband you intend to cuckold and deny sex to is not without resources, believe it. Also, your boyfriend is about to reap the whirlwind; depend on it," I said. She momentarily lost her poise, when I mentioned going after her boyfriend, but she steadied herself.
"Clyde be reasonable. I don't want us to fight. My God I don't," she said.
"A fight? You've got a war, missy, and you're the one who declared it. Prepare yourself," I said.
I couldn't believe it. I couldn't! Could she, as she said, be so cold hearted as to actually try to rape me in divorce court just to maintain her adulterous liaison with her asshole boyfriend! I couldn't believe it! She had been the love of my life. As for ever crawling back to her on my hands and knees; well, I did say she was crazy didn't I.
"You actually told him that?" said Marie Bradshaw. "Wow. You have balls of Kryptonian steel"
"Believe it, I did lay it on him like that. But, in the end he decided to risk it anyway. Like I said, he dumped me and walked out without so much as a by-your-leave," said Bonnie.
"Whaddya gonna do?" said Marie.
"For the moment, nothing. It's his move. I know he needs a little time to calm down and get his head on straight. You know come to grips with things. I'm hoping that he rethinks his plans and just comes back to me. If he does, I will make it easy for him. I mean no rubbing his nose in it. I am fully aware that his ego is in a very delicate state right now. And, I will act accordingly that is if he does get his act together. But, if he goes for the divorce, well, I guess we'll just have to go to war. I refuse to lose him."
"And Michael?" said Marie. "What if he does go after him?"
"That's the one thing that I am kinda worried about. I told Michael, warned him, but he says he's not vulnerable. So, I guess that's not something I have to be concerned with," said Bonnie.
"You know your husband being an accountant makes him privy to a lot of things and maybe friends with a lot of influential folks. You sure Michael is Teflon," said Marie.
"Yes, I think so. He was pretty confident. But that asshole, Marie, if it weren't for his dick, he'd be hittin' the pavement and leaving skid marks on the asphalt in the process right now," said Bonnie. He's so fucking stupid. I tell yuh, I don't know how the guy ever made any money in his business; he's a complete fool," said Bonnie.
"He's ruthless, that's how," said Marie. "I know Michael Campanas real well. He's known for taking no prisoners—ever. It's kind of a matter of honor with him, if you know what I mean."
"Hmm, honor, as if he could even spell the word," said Bonnie.
"When are you going to see him again?" said Marie.
"He'll have me bent over his couch drilling me from behind in about an hour," said Bonnie. "I like it when he does me doggy. It gives him more ways to control me, master me. God how I love it when he takes me. It's the female submissive in me. You know, that's part of the problem with my husband: he's such a wuss; he never takes me; he always treats me like a Lladro figurine."
"And for you that's a bad thing?" said Marie.
"Well, it would just be nice if for once he'd just do me without worrying about—what—if he were ramming me too hard," said Bonnie. "But, I do love him, and I guess gentle is just who he is, I suppose."
"Oh how horrible that must be for you," said Marie, laughing. Bonnie snickered.
"Well it's true," said Bonnie. "He's so vanilla it's almost embarrassing, even when we're alone! Anyway, you have to help me. I've got an idea." Her friend looked at her.
"Okay?" said Marie.
"Where have you been buster?" said Ana Campanas.
"Nowhere. A few drinks with Amos down at Bud's," said Michael.
"Hmm, Amos huh? And if I run into Amos tomorrow or the next day, he gonna have his story down straight?" said Ana. He just looked at her and snickered.
"If you mean will he remember what we were doing and where we were, yeah, probably," said Michael.
"Yeah, I'm sure," said Ana. "The kids are in bed. You need to go up and say good night to them. They were not happy when they found out you'd be working late again. You've been late too damn many times lately, Michael. This has to stop. The babies, our babies, are too precious to treat like you've been treating them, neglecting them really." He looked at her and realized he had been less than fair to the children.
"Okay, you're right. I'll make arrangements, somehow, from now on," he said. His words seemed to mollify her. She nodded.
"Let's go to bed. I hope you're up for some exercise, superman, because I am," she said. He looked a little dubious.
"Yeah, I think I can accommodate yuh," he said. "You gonna do your magic mouth thing on me?" She looked him askance.
"Okay, if you want," she said.
"If I want? You serious? What normal male wouldn't want!" he said, almost too vehemently.
He reached for a now cold burrito that was still on the tray on the kitchen table. He wolfed it down. Even superman needed sustenance to be able to perform sexually with any degree of enthusiasm. He knew he could be about to be in trouble. He'd already drained himself three times into Bonnie. He only hoped he'd have at least more one bullet left for his wife. If he failed to cum inside of her, there could be hell to pay. Oh yeah, hell to pay.
He'd been taking too many chances lately trying his best to fuck over the asshole who'd done him and his business hurt. But, if his lawyer wife figured it out, he was screwed, blued, and tattooed and those not too gently either.
He headed up the stairs. The four boys shared two sets of bunk beds in the biggest room. The room had its own bathroom too, so they didn't have the usual chicken fights that boys often did sisters. He smiled his pride as he stood there watching them breathing rhythmically in the pure innocence of children their ages.
Crossing the hall he looked down on his daddy's girl, thirteen year-old Clarice; she was the oldest. She was beautiful and smart and her daddy's heart. Looked like her mother though; that was a lucky thing, he allowed. He kissed her on her forehead, and left closing the door gently behind him.
He breathed deeply before entering their bedroom and wished himself luck. His wife was already lying on the bed. She was wearing her most revealing teddy. Jesus, she looked almost as pretty as Bonnie Armistead. He took his time disrobing.
Finally naked, he stood by the bed, his partially erect penis waving a greeting to her in front of him. She looked him askance.
"Looks like you need a little help, stud," she said. "Come here." He did as she said trying his damnedest to smile. But, he was worried, and that never helped him get hard.
It took her several minutes, but he was finally hard enough to do her. She pulled back for a second and said something that stunned him. "Blow it in my mouth, stud, I want to get the first one out of the way, so you can last a little while. He was too far gone to resist. He unloaded in her mouth and she swallowed it all.
He shrank out of her like a pair of unsanforized jeans on hot cycle. She tried to get him up tickling, sucking, playing, but the best she could do—or he could do—was get about half hard.
"You been jacking off, mister!" she said, accusingly. He swallowed.
"No," he said, kind of weakly. She seemed to buy it.
"You have haven't you. Either that or you're screwing some little number on the side. Let me warn you, mister studley, if I catch you with that dick in any other cunt but mine there will be no damn forgiveness. I hope I make myself perfectly clear." She didn't see him shudder, but he did.
I'd almost worn out the bar stool at Bud's Bar, or so it seemed to me, and that in just the seven days since I'd left the love of my life, one Bonnie Armistead nee Finnley.
I thought about going back and trying to reason with her. But, remembering how she'd acted and her incredibly flawed reasoning, I knew it would be futile. So, I drank. I drank a lot, an awful lot. And, it helped. No really, it did help.
And, then there was someone sitting on the barstool next to mine. "Find any solace in that stuff," said Marie. I looked over at her.
"What are you doing here? Go back to your friend, and tell her you've seen me and I'm just fine thank you very much," I said.
"Oh, I'll tell her, but I'll be telling her the truth. That you're crying in your beer. That you wish it was her sitting here instead of me, and that you're almost ready to go crawling back to her on your hands and knees," said Marie. I snickered.
"Yeah, right," I said. "Not a fucking chance. Tell her that too."
"Really?" she said.
"Yeah really," I said. "You have no idea the hurt she laid on me No idea. She utterly destroyed me, and she told me I had to like it—uh—deal with it, I think were her exact words."
"Yes, she did say she'd done you pretty cold. I think she'd like to have some of that back," said Marie.
"Too late," I said. "Like I said before, you have no idea how bad she's hurt me. And, I mean I will never actually get over the things she's said. Ten years from now, maybe when my next wife and I are having dinner, I will reflect back on it all and start crying my eyes out again because of that hurt. I know it. I know it as a great truth."
"You really going to divorce her?" said Marie. "I mean no way you could see your way clear to talk to her, maybe get by all of this stuff—the hurt?"
"Yep and nope," I said. "I've already seen a lawyer. And, yeah, I know the bad news is that she's gonna be able to hurt me real bad there too. Well, hell, I guess that's what she wants for me, hurt."
"That's not true. She wants to talk to you and soften the stuff she laid on you. She really is sorry about how she went about things," said Marie. "I think at the time she just wanted to get it all out there so the two of you could deal with the situation like adults, and not get into a guzzillion meaningless word games," said Marie.
"And her lover?" I said. "I mean he is the fly in the ointment, know what I mean?"
"She's not giving him up. But, she doesn't want to give you up either. She does intend to fight you if you try to divorce her," said Marie.
"Won't give him up? Well, that pretty much puts the boff on me ever speaking to her again except through the lawyers. Oh, and there will not be any 'trying' to divorce her, oh no, I am 'going' to divorce her flat period.
"There is no way she can stop me. She can delay things I guess, fuck me over even worse than she already has, but sooner or later I will be free of her. Hell, I just may leave the country and leave her to her lover and the fallout from that. He'll dump on her eventually, just like she has on me; then, maybe she'll understand just how much this has cost her, not just me," I said.
"Actually, I agree with you on that last part. He will dump on her eventually, that's guaranteed. I don't want to see her hurt any more than I want to see you hurt. And, I know you don't want to hurt her or see her hurt either," said Marie.
"Uh-huh," I said, but it was a sardonic uh-huh.
"Yes, uh-huh. I want you to go back and wait her out. Yes, your ego will be taking a helluva beating, but in the long run you'll be the winner and she'll be the one crawling back to you begging forgiveness which you will generously grant," said Marie. I started laughing. Well, it was funny.
"Her crawl back to me. Now, there's an image I can get my head around," I said. "It'll never happen."
"Look, Clyde, I know mister Campanas, and I know his wife Ana. And, at some point that, his wife, is an angle that you might want to work on. He's a scumbag. His wife is a strong woman if I'm any judge, and if she finds out about what he's doing, well...
"But, as for you and Bonnie, You just have to be patient, but mostly, you just have to be there in the first place. Not sitting here wishing you were there.
You need to go back, and yes, with your tail between your legs, and let her play at welcoming you home. But, don't have sex with her. Just tell her that while she is entertaining the neighborhood that you will remain celibate. Like I said, wait her out. It might take a while, but in the end you will come out on top," said Marie.
I looked at her hard. She was actually making sense. I wasn't sure about the celibacy part. That would be more than a tough nut for me, but maybe there might be a way...
I had to think. Marie and I talked a little more, but then she was gone, and I was left with my thoughts.
"Did he buy it?" said Bonnie.
"Maybe. I gave him something to think about. But, if he's not back in a couple of days, maybe not," said Marie. Bonnie nodded.
"Okay, I've got my fingers crossed. I guess it's going to be a waiting game for now," said Bonnie.
I parked in front of the house and just sat there. Was I playing a losing hand? I figured I was. Was it worth a second try in any event? I figured it also was. I took a deep breath, exited my car, and headed up the walkway to the front door. She opened it before I was quite up the last step of the porch.
"Thank God!" was her initial greeting. Her second greeting was a hug, but no kiss; I thought that telling, but I said nothing. "Honey, I am so glad you're back. I was so worried. I mean after our last little talk..." she said.
"Yes, I'm back, but I'm not sure if I'm going to be staying, and if I do for how long," I said.
"Oh, honey, please, let me prove to you that I love only you and that you belong here with me. I know what I said to you before may have made you wonder about that; but, nothing could be less true than me wanting anyone more than you," she said.
"But, you will have others beside me whether I like it or not, or, am I wrong about that?" I said.
"Honey, we need to talk. I need to plead my case better than I did before. I know when you see all sides of the situation that you will understand why nothing I have done, or ever will do, is going to matter an iota.
"Anyway, we need to eat and hug and maybe share a glass or two of wine before we go to bed. Would that be all right?" she said. I nodded.
Marie's advice came back to me and made me wonder. "Move back, she'd said, "but don't have sex with her. Make her wait until the asshole she's fucking around on you with, screws her over, and he will. Then, you'll be there to pick up the pieces," Marie had said.
Marie's advice made sense on a purely intellectual level. But, it did not take into consideration my current desperate state of horniness. I'd take her tonight. I'd think about taking Marie's advice tomorrow—maybe.
We ate and cleaned up the dishes together. We even shared a laugh or two about how domestic we seemed to be at that moment.
"Well, it's time to hit the hay," I said with some enthusiasm; again, that rising out of my desperate need to get laid. She gave me a doubtful look, but said nothing.
I was lying on top of the covers naked and anxious. I wondered how our first night together would go. She came out of the bathroom dressed in her flannels—again—her signal that there would be no sex.
"Honey?" I said.
"Yes?" she said.
"You're wearing your flannels?" I said.
"Well, I'm kind of tired tonight," she said.
"Wait, wait, are you saying no way to sex with me? That rule hasn't changed?" I said.
"What's going on, Bonnie? I know you're not tired. You're dodging having sex with me. What's going on here that I'm not getting?" I said.
She sat down heavily on her vanity stool. "You know I'm still having sex with Michael, right?" she said.
"So if you fucked him today, take a shower. We'll discuss him tomorrow after we make love again in the morning," I said.
"Honey, I can't," she said.
"Can't what?' I said.
"Have sex with you. Not intercourse anyway," she said. She seemed genuinely sorry for what she was saying.
"Huh? You mean ever?" she looked away.
"Answer me!" I yelled. She jumped.
"Honey, it'll be all right. I'll ask Michael to allow me to let you do me once in a while. Okay?" she said.
"Huh? What? Why would you ask him for anything that has to do with me," I said.
"Michael's well, he has made it clear to me that I can't have sex with you. Well, at least while he and I are still doing it. You know on the side," she said. "He's still real mad at you for doing him, as he thinks, out of the Crocker account.
I was sitting up now, stunned and utterly disbelieving. "And, you expect me to come home—I mean after everything— and to put up with a deal like that!" I said, my voice rising to Olympian heights.
"But, we can still cuddle and be in love, real love, and I promise to make it right by you. There's a lot we can do without you actually screwing me. You know—oral stuff," she said.
"I'll be sleeping down the hall. Don't bother me. Oh and I will be staying here from now on. The house is mine too. But, you don't have to worry, I promise not touch your skanky ass. Believe it, I would not so much as touch you with a ten foot pole. But, and this is set in stone. Don't ever let me catch that cockbite around this house. If I do, I will crush him like a grape and drink his blood like wine. Got it skank!" I said. She blanched at my calling her a skank.
"Honey, you've got this all wrong. I love you, not him. He's a plaything that's all. Yes, I need what he can do for me in the sex department, but in absolutely every other way you're the king, not him," she said.
"Just make sure that the asshole never comes around here. I really mean it. If he does..." I left the not very subtle threat hanging in the air.
I grabbed my stuff and headed down the hall. I'd be dealing with the two of them on the morrow.
"Well, you can't say I didn't warn you. You should've let him screw you. How would Michael have known if you did? Clyde, according to you, is too small to stretch you very much. Michael would have no way of knowing," said Marie.
Yes, he would. I can't lie worth a damn. That's why I had to bare my soul to Clyde, tell him the whole thing. He would have known in a New York minute that I was hiding stuff. I knew it was risky, telling him the straight up truth, even crazy, but there was no other way. That said, I thought that if I did other things for him, good stuff, you know, that I could persuade him, satisfy him. I was, am, going to be super nice to him. I mean super nice," said Bonnie.
"Super nice? You're kidding right? A man who's horny, as horny as I'm sure your husband is, can think of little else but pussy. And you told him he wasn't ever going to get any. You've lost him. I'm telling you that right now," said Marie.
"I still have my hole card. He's not going to go for a divorce because he knows I can rape him there. And, no, I did not threaten him with that again. I know my doing that the last time was maybe what drove him over the edge. But, in his head he'll know it, so I don't think he'll be pushing it. And, he is staying at the house. That puts him close enough for me to entice him with the other things I can do to make him happy, to satisfy him," said Bonnie.
"Girl, you're living in a dream world. I wouldn't doubt that he might just up and leave and not give a damn about anything the courts declare," said Marie. "I mean even if he did tell you he was staying at the house."
"No, I can't let him leave. He's the one that pays the bills and takes care of me. My job at the salon isn't near enough to support these digs. And, Michael would never leave his wife, that Ana woman, for me because of his five kids. So, Clyde has to stay and do his duty," said Bonnie.
"While you refuse to do yours?" said Marie.
"I am going to do my duty. I'm only denying him one thing. Everything else is his for the taking. And, add to that the way I intend to pamper and love him. He'll have no complaints when I'm through with him. Hell, Michael might even have reason to be jealous of him; I mean the way I will be treating him," said Bonnie.
I'd been lying on the bed all night hardly even getting up to pee. I was so mad I wasn't sure if I should even be staying here. I was actually half afraid I might get mad enough to do something to my wife. I kept taking deep breaths to calm myself down. Then the door opened.
She didn't say anything. She came to me. She was still dressed in her flannels. I was still naked. She got on the bed and took my penis in her hand and began to wank me off. But it was no use. She couldn't even get me up, not even a little. I was glad.
"Honey, are you all right. Did you, you know... ?" she said.
"Masturbate? No. I just don't need or want you anymore. I don't even see you as a woman, just a pig, so go back to your room. We'll co-exist for a while, but we will not be lovers—phony lovers like you want us to be. So just fuck off, skank. I actually hate you," I said.
"Honey, please. Give me a chance. Please," she begged.
"I did and you shot me down. But, oddly, I'm glad you did. "It'll be easier to forget you now, skank. Get the fuck out of here" I said. She did finally get up and leave; she didn't cry, but she was shaking her head. It was as if she couldn't believe that "I" was being so unbending.
After some little time, I began to rationalize my situation. Did I still want to try and save the marriage? I wasn't sure anymore, but on some level, yes, I did. I wouldn't admit it to her; I wanted her to feel some of what she'd made me feel, but I did have some vague hope that the asshole would get his and I'd get her. Looking inside myself, I knew it was time to stop whining and actually do what I said I was going to do. I was going to go to war.
So, the hunt was on. She had a boyfriend who wasn't worth a damn. One who she claimed was only on the side. Well, two could play that game. And, that is exactly what I intended to do. Bonnie didn't know it yet, but as of last night we had de facto open marriage.
I'd laid down the law about the asshole ever coming into our house, but I had no intention of honoring my own rule. I was going to break it and that flagrantly if I could. I was still looking pretty good for my age. Still a tight five-ten and one-seventy-five. I didn't have a ten inch dick, but I did have a six incher, and that would just have to do.
"Whaddya mean I can't come around the house," said Michael Campanas. His voice was rising. "Of course I'm going to be coming around, and I want him to be sure to be there when I do show up. Got it? He's pussywhipped; he's not going to be denying me and you our fun. And, he's obviously afraid you'll kick him out and screw him over in the divorce. No, I will be coming over. And, you can rest easy; he ain't going anywhere; he's the wimpiest wimp of all time." He began to laugh.
"Michael, Clyde is awfully tough and awfully angry because you told me he couldn't have intercourse with me," said Bonnie. "I've so far honored your words, and he is frankly pussywhipped enough to hate it and accept it at the same time. But push him too far? You coming over is out of the question. He'll kill you and maybe me too in the bargain," she said. "He feels cornered right now, and a cornered husband can be very dangerous; I just know it."
"What? You really think that wimpy would mess with me? Now, I've heard everything. Can't wait to see him try," said Michael.
"Michael you're a fool. You really don't get it. Clyde was a white guy brought up on the south side of Chicago. When he was younger he was in more trouble than you could shake a stick at. Please don't come over, especially not when he's around, but really not anytime. Please!" she said. He just smiled. Michael Campanas had a foolproof plan; he was certain of it.
"Bonnie, Clyde's, what, five-eight? Maybe one-sixty?" said Michael.
"Five-ten, but I don't know how much he weighs, maybe two hundred," she said. She'd be somewhat surprised to later learn that while she was right about how tall I was; she was way off her estimation of my weight: I actually weigh in right at one-seventy-five.
Michael laughed. "He's nowhere near two-hundred; I've seen him. Nevertheless, I'm six-four and weigh in at two-forty, and in spite of what you may think, Bonnie, I ain't no pussy either. I'd tear is ass up if he came at me."
"I don't care, Michael, even if you could; he's my husband, and I don't want him hurt. Got it!" she said. "I need what you do for me but not at the expense of my marriage. I've already made compromises that have endangered it as it is, but no more."
