After two weeks goes by, Nicole finally decided to go back to her apartment.She was getting tired of him calling and texting her about how he missed her,and how he needed her to start the business, and she was getting tired of feeling up on herself and buying batteries.That night she returned,they had make up sex ,both called in sick the next day and stayed in bed until noon.
A few months goes by and things started feeling ok and they finally started their essential oil business N.D Naturals ,the one they usually pillow talked about.Darius would get the oils from locals and he and Nicole would make candles and hair butter out of it.They decided to run the shop on weekends as things were still fresh,so they monitored the progress and observed how it went.Sales were still slow but they were steady. Before long,N.D Naturals was becoming known and started creating a buzz in the small town.
And for the first time, Nicole could actually see them settling down. Something about him had changed,he seemed happy,he was more willing to make things happen ,Nicole decided the space did some good afterall.
One afternoon Nicole left work early and so she decided to pass by the small space that was leased to them to sell their products at. To her surprise it was open.On approaching the back of the shop she noticed Alice sitting on the edge of a desk, licking her lips and staring deeply into Darius’s eyes who seemed to be blushing and flirting right back.
Nicole cleared her throat and they both seemed awaken from a deep trance.
“Hey you’re out of work early” he said turning his watch around his wrist to face the time.
“Yea I am,I don’t think we’ve met, I’m Darius’s girlfriend, Nicole!”
Alice expression changed as she eyed Darius confused,
“Girl friend? “
“Yes,also business partner..” Nicole added sharply
“What! I thought you were running this place with your brother..
Darius sighed as he shook his head and pulled Alice aside and spoke so low that Nicole could not hear.
Alice seemed upset as she took her bag and left.
“Did I miss something?” Asked Nicole as Darius took his car keys and left with Nicole standing there confused.
He didn’t come home till later that night,he took a shower and laid next to her and didn’t answer any questions she asked.As she laid beside him, craving his touch and attention he got lost texting on his phone.
She tweested and turnt that whole night when she woke the next day,he was gone and he didn’t even leave her breakfast.
This continued for weeks and Nicole got blamed for everything going wrong.If he woke up late,if he forgot something he said it was because she was stressing him.The arguments started again and the only time he looked at her was when he wanted sex.After he ejaculated he would go back to ignoring her and playing his video games.
It was the night of a huge basketball game and Darius invited Ken and Drew over to watch the game.
“What’s up with your girl” asked Drew when he realized Nicole barely speaking to them as she seemed to be in her own world ignoring them. Drew stupes as he rolled his eyes,
“We alright men,can we watch the game please”
“Reason I asked is because the shop has been closed everytime I pass by ,are y’all fighting again” he insisted
Darius face got serious,”Men learn to mind your business before I put you out”
Ken laughed as Drew shook his head,
“Ok men ok”
They went back to watching the game.
Nicole shook her head in frustration and went to lay down. As she laid on the bed scrolling through her phone,she realized his iPad was opened.She suddenly got an idea to go through it ,she shook it off at first,but the more she thought of it,the stronger the desire got.She tip toed to have a glance at them before doing her crime.They were cheering, laughing too deep in the game to realize anything.
She closed the door and quickly grabbed the iPad,with trembling fingers she went on his Facebook messenger,and to her dismay she saw a message from Alice.
There were other messages but this one stood out,she quickly clicked it and her heart sunk as she read through the messages.Darius had been over at Alice’s place multiple times and had several sexual encounters.There were a few nudes of eachother and by the looks of it Darius was claiming he and Nicole were still separated and having problems.
A sharp pain pierced through her heart as she felt a rush of emotions run through her body. She just knew it,all her suspicions were correct, that gut feeling she had was accurate she felt so right yet so defeated. What a fool she had been,she felt so betrayed and angry.
She began quickly going through the other messages ,they were from other women and men, flirting with Darius,promising to meet up,there were more nudes,there was too much.
She closed messenger,she had read and seen enough,she wiped her eyes and went to take a shower.Furiously washing her hair, scrubbing her body from head to toe,she lathered her lady parts so fiercely so as to wipe off every other lingering parts of him,some parts she rubbed so roughly that she bruised her skin,she wanted all of him washed away from her.She sobbed as she recalled every message,every detail Evey lie.Who was He..
To be continued.
