The party was clearly over at this point.
What a disaster.
I was on my way out and I was heated.
For some reason, it wasn’t the same kind of anger you would get if someone cheated on you.
I felt like I was more upset about the grey area in our situation. I clearly liked this girl and I was even considering giving up everything for her.
People at her place stared at her as she watched me slowly shake my head and leave the condo.
We were both embarrassed but I was sure in very different ways.
I walked briskly towards my car as Nate followed closely. I could hear Ava sobbing and trying to chase after me.
Nate stopped and began to talk to her. I kept walking to my car, which was parked at the end of the parking lot.
I could hear Nate telling her
“Just leave him alone right now. He’s clearly still upset”
but you could hear her replying
“I just want to talk to him and explain”
Nate hit back sharply
“Look Ava, he’s heated right now. You wont get through to him.
Give him space. Call him tomorrow”
She kept trying to talk to him while I walked out of their sight and earshot.
I arrived at my car and I was reaching for my keys when Ava’s friend Kara, came out from my left side.
“Don’t you look so cute angry”
It actually caught me off guard. I scanned her from top to bottom and she said
“My name is Kara btw, I don’t think we have officially met”
I shook her outstretched hand as I forced a smile. I pulled my key out as I said
“Mono… nice to meet you”
“Pleasure is mine..”
“Can I borrow your phone for a second… “
I sighed because I just wanted to leave but I pulled my phone out of my pocket and handed it to her. She began typing on it as she said
“I know you’re upset right now but if you ever want to talk, give me a call”
She smiled and handed the phone back to me and said as she walked away with a sly smile on her face
“I hope you’d like to talk tonight”
It didn’t make any sense to me at the time. I sat in my car waiting for Nate as I sighed out loud and all I could think of about the day was #WhatTheHeckMan
. . . . .
KEEP READING TO FIND THE RESULTS OF EXPOSING MY PARENTS TO MY WRITING THIS PAST WEEK. Will there be #WhatTheHeckMan after all of this???
FIND OUT AT THE END OF THE STORY.
. . . . .
High tea time, I found my way downtown.
I could only take being around a lot of people in small doses. But I always came to this spot when I was feeling down and wanted to cheer myself up.
It was one of my favorite brunch spots.
And she was late.
The waitress brought out my menu and asked how I was doing and what I would like to drink
“Hi my name is Sarah, I’ll be taking care of you today. What can I start you off with?”
I smiled back and looked down at the menu
“Can I get a glass of water with Lemon but no ice. And another glass of water with Lemon and ice”
She nodded and walked away.
It was a bright and sunny afternoon.
People making their way along the sidewalk; dogs and baby carts and runners jogging too
The air was fresh just like my lemon as my water got dropped on my table.
I looked to my left and noticed Ava walking down the sidewalk. I placed my glass on the table.
I rose to give her a hug when she arrived.
“Sorry, I’m late. I couldn’t find parking”
I smiled and told her it was okay.
She sat down and said
“How are you?”
that familiar but uncomfortable small talk we usually have to engage in to break the ice.
We got past it as I asked
“….So it’s been an interesting week for us, right?
How are you feeling about it all?”
She placed her cup down and wiped her lips with her left hand. She looked up at me and placed both her hands on her laps as she leaned back and said
“I want to start by apologizing for all that happened. A public spectacle was definitely not what I expected… and I wanted to apologize for the issue with my ex.
I guess since we never actually discussed the exclusivity aspect of our relations, I assumed that we were still able to see other people”
She paused and I responded
“Well you’re right and I guess that’s where my issue with our generation as a whole comes in. It is not expected that the focus should be on one person but one should always assume who you want, wants/has/or is involved with someone else…
But I’m not upset about that per se… I’ve had some time to think about it and I think what really sucked was the fact that it was a surprise to me but in such a public way.. you know?”
She nodded and said
“I understand that and again, I’m so sorry. I don’t even know where that came from but its over now?”
I wanted clarity so I asked
“You guys are done with each other?”
She laughed as the waitress placed our dishes in front of us
“I’m done with him and everything that comes with him”
“So what does that mean for us?
Like where do we go from here… because you know where I am right now… I want to explore this.. us….”
I said. She looked up at me and said
“Mono, I really like you and you know this and ignoring all that happened this past week, I still want to take it slow and properly figure this out… I don’t want to make the same mistakes again”
I let out and uncomfortable and fake laugh/smile. It felt like I was being “curved” even though I knew I wasn’t. I replied
“Okay… I respect that.
I guess we just take it slow and figure it all out along the way”
I would be lying if I said that her response didn’t upset me a bit.
One with the humble opinion that “going slow” can often mean “I’m not ready to be serious”, I was a bit hesitant about going further but what good things come easy?
We continued to eat and I then remembered Kara’s text
“Oh so Kara texted me earlier today. She said needs help moving tomorrow to her new place. I told her to run it by you first”
Ava looked at me and nonchalantly said
“Oh yeah it’s cool. She probably forgot.
Is she still moving to Westchester area?”
I nodded, as my mouth was full. Certainly nothing compared to my plate in the coming days.
. . . . .
Another slow day.
It was one of those slow days that you would expect to be really lazy but turned very busy.
I continued to catch myself imagining my bed as I slugged through the day.
I had actually forgotten about helping Kara move to her new place until she texted me
“Are you still coming to help me move?”
I texted back
“Yea… Leaving the office in a bit.
See you in about 45”
I asked myself what I had gotten myself into as I made my way down Kiki’s street. Ava teased me as I complained
“Who asked you to be so nice to people?”
I laughed and vowed to get her back.
I arrived at Kara’s door and told Ava I would call her once I was done with the move.
Kara came down and opened the door. She smiled big and hugged me.
I took off my coat and hung it on the rack.
She offered me something to drink and I agreed to a glass of lemonade. She exited the living room and headed into the kitchen.
The living room was empty. The dining area was empty.
The foyer was empty.
Basically, the entire place was empty. Well almost everything was gone.
“What do you actually need help with Kara?”
I teased as she returned with two glasses of lemonade.
“All your stuff is basically gone”
She laughed and replied
“My room is still not packed up yet… come and see for yourself”
I followed closely behind her as we entered her bedroom.
It was practically empty besides her bed.
“Kara, this room is basically empty too!”
I squealed as I walked in.
“Well, I just wanted you to help me move the bed…”
It was then I looked at her and the picture became clearer.
She was wearing really short shorts, a tank top that could easily give way to an exclusive view of her nipples.
I was now putting it together. She didn’t invite me her to move.
She wanted to move me.
“My back is bad Kara, I can’t really lift super heavy stuff”
I tired to lie.
She climbed on the bed and said
“Aww that sucks. It’s okay though…
You look tired…. You know that’s why I bought this bed.
It’s tempurpedic. So soft and relaxing. You should try it”
I had a decision and it was one I lived to regret.
. . . . .
The television had been on as I fell asleep on the bed.
You know when you are asleep but you can still hear things in the conscious;
like people talking or your phone ringing?
I could hear something buzzing but I was making my way deep into the realm of the unconscious that it too me a while.
I finally opened my eyes and realized that my phone had been buzzing on my beside table.
The television was still on with Sportscenter still running highlights that I had seen twenty plus times before I had fallen asleep.
I reached for the phone and turned it over.
It was Ava.
With a somewhat coarse voice, I turned onto my back and said
“Hey Kimon, did I wake you? I’m sorry”
I shook my head and said
“Nah, it’s okay. What’s going on?”
She paused on the other end for a second and then said
“Can I come over?
There are something’s I want to talk to you about”
I said okay and ended the call.
I got off my bed and picked up certain things and straightened others as I awaited her arrival.
Roughly 15 minutes later, she arrived at my door.
I walked out and let her in.
She hugged me and immediately began to speak as she pulled back from me
“Kimon, I am sorry. For everything that has happened lately from the party to even how I responded after. I am sorry”
She looked up to me with those warm beautiful eyes she had. I tried to stay objective but to be honest, she was just too cute for me to stay angry.
I pulled her in closer and said
“It’s okay babe. I’m just glad it’s all sorted out.”
There was some small chatter as we sat and talked then she said
“Aight Kimon, I have to go. I have work in the morning”
I obviously objected and replied
Just stay here. Go from here in the morning”
She tried to fight it but I knew she wanted to spend time with me also.
“But I don’t have any clothes here just underwear”
She was right but I was prepared.
“What about the jeans you left in my car that time?
And you can wear the blouse again…”
She was staying.
I got up and headed into the bathroom to take a shower. I was expecting to get some action but I had fallen asleep after the gym earlier.
I was stepping out of the shower with the water dripping down my body when Ava yelled out from the bedroom
“Where can I get a shirt to sleep in?”
“Top drawer on the left of the cabinet”
I replied in the sauna like bathroom with the fogged up mirrors.
And then it hit me!
Not the drawer!
She could not open that….
I heard the drawer open up.
I didn’t even bother drying myself completely as I darted into the bedroom attempting to pretend like nothing had happened but stop Ava from going through that drawer.
I walked into the room and there she was. It was in her hand.
She was holding a pair of panties in her hand.
I stood dripping in the doorway as she said
“Mono! who’s panties are these?”
I swallowed hard. I knew I was a dead man.
“Aren’t those yours babe?
Remember those really old ones before you bought the ones?”
I looked up at her to see if she really bought it. She was actually smiling because she knew she had me.
I let out a sigh of relief and right in front of me, she bent down and changed her clothes.
She turned around and headed to the bed. She walked to my side of the bed and opened my bedside drawer and she froze.
I was already dead for sure now.
My heart had travelled down into the darkest embers of the world. It had run away so fast, I felt like I was going to collapse any moment.
Ava reached into the bedside drawers where I usually keep my remote controls as I hate having them lost in the sheets. She slowly turned around and stretched out her hand, in it, a pair of earrings and a stick of Rihanna’s Viva Glam lipstick.
She looked at her hand and then up to me and all she said was
