Rebecca stared back into his eyes and said, ” Fine, I guess a cup of coffee won’t hurt. I’ll give you a call and let you know when it’s a good time.”
” Great! I’ll be waiting for that call sweetheart,” said Marco.
Rebecca turned around and started walking towards her car. She couldn’t help but to wonder if she made the right choice saying yes. On the drive home, she started thinking about how she felt like she would officially be cheating on John if she saw Marco again. Despite the fact that they’re only friends, she can’t fight the feeling of having a small crush on him. When she made it to the driveway of her home , her husband John was standing outside.
“Where were you? I’ve been waiting to talk with you?” John said.
“I was out to dinner with a friend. Either way, I needed time to cool off. ” Rebecca walked in the house and sat down in her recliner.
” Well, go ahead and talk; I’m listening,” said Rebecca.
John walked up and stood over her. “I really didn’t mean to upset you so much, it’s just that I wanted you to know how it felt to catch your spouse lusting after someone else. You know I’m not really interested in those kind of movies,” said John.
” I know why you did it. It’s just that I wish you would’ve listened to me rather than try and get even. I told you I only read the book because we don’t have any romance in our marriage. So I got my fix that way. Would you had rather I cheated on you!” Rebecca yelled.
“I’ve done nothing to deserve for you to cheat on me! Yes, I know, I’m usually busy. I don’t really have the time to be romantic. But maybe if you would dress sexy and fix yourself up sometime, perhaps that would grab my attention, ” John said.
Rebecca started to turn red in the face.
“Oh, I’m sorry! I’m only a nurse who work long night shifts! I don’t have the time to look like a super model. But I’m glad to finally know that you ignore me because you think I look disgusting. You aren’t so hot yourself! I don’t complain about your balding head or your extra weight! All I asked for was to be given a little more attention!” Rebecca got up and pushed John out the way. She rushed to their bedroom and slammed the door shut. She locked the door.
“That’s not what I meant. Rebecca! Rebecca!” yelled John.
She couldn’t believe what her husband just told her. She started to think about how Marco made her feel beautiful. Rebecca started to cry. She replayed Marco voice in her head telling her she could wear a paper bag to dinner and she would still be beautiful. Rebecca was confused on what to do. What she did know is that she didn’t want her husband anywhere near her. She never thought John would ever be so insensitive. John started knocking on the door.
” Rebecca! Let me in! ”
“Go away!” Rebecca yelled.
“Please! I’m sorry! Either way it’s my room too. Come on and let me in. Let’s talk about it. I didn’t mean what I said. I said it out of anger! ” John yelled. He started banging on the door.
“I can’t do this anymore,” Rebecca said. Rebecca opened up the bedroom door and walked out past John and towards the door outside.
” Where are you going?! It’s already midnight, ” said John.
“I’m going to go buy some sexy clothes so I don’t disgust you”, Rebecca said. She busted out the door and jumped in the car and drove off. She didn’t know where She was going, but she knew she didn’t want to be around John. Marco smile kept coming back to her. So She picked up her cell phone and gave Marco a call.
“Hello?” Marco said with a scratchy voice.
” I’m sorry I called you this late. It sound like I woke you up”, Rebecca said.
” Hearing from you is always a pleasure. Are you calling about the coffee date?”
“Actually yes. I know this sound crazy, and I’d totally understand if you said no, but would you like to join me for coffee tonight? I had a big fight with my husband and I don’t want to be around him right now. I think I could use your advice,” Rebecca said.
” Well yes, of course! It’s my pleasure! Where do we meet? ” he asked.
“Jonah’s Coffee shop on twenty third and Filmore. ”
“I’ll be there !” Marco hung up.
Rebecca smiled and blushed at his enthusiasm. When she finally drove up to the Coffee shop, Marco was standing at his car waiting for her. He walked up to her car and opened up her door.
” Wow, you made it here fast! Did you teleport!?” Rebecca asked.
“Ha! Practically. I have to admit I was excited when you asked to see me. I thought I’d probably never see you again. I wasn’t sure you really wanted to go out for coffee,” Marco said.
Rebecca and Marco walked in the coffee shop and took a seat. ” Well, I was planning on seeing you again, just not this soon. My husband just said the most horrible things to me and I really needed a listening ear,” said Rebecca.
“Oh, What did he say?” Marco asked.
“It’s a long story, but in short, my husband said he would give me the time of day if I fixed my myself up. I guess I look like a slob to him. We’ve been fighting ever since he caught me reading a romance novel. I told him I only read it because he doesn’t give me enough attention. So, he got me back by watching adult movies. And now everything is messed up between my husband and I. I can’t believe I’m telling you all this!” Rebecca laid her face in her hands in embarrassment.
” Don’t be embarrassed! You’re talking to someone who has had thire share of arguments in marriages. I think what he told you was horrible. You look absolutely beautiful to me. I have no idea what he’s talking about. Perhaps it’s the other way around. Maybe he feels insecure about himself. I know I never felt good enough for my wives.”
Rebecca smiled and looked down. “Well, he sure don’t act like he feels that way,” Rebecca said.
” You’ll get through this. I’m here for you,” he said.
“I think I’m ready for my coffee. Are you? Rebecca asked. ”
“Oh, yes!” he replied. Marco ordered two cappuccinos.
The waitress sat down thire coffee. ” Drink up!” Marco said.
Rebecca took a sip. “This is really good. But unfortunately it doesn’t solve my problem with my husband,” She said.
Marco started gazing at her with a blank face. “Is everything ok?” Rebecca asked.
“Oh, yes. I was just thinking about how you need to relax. I think I can solve your problem,” Marco said.
“Ha! Really?” Rebecca laughed.
“Is that your keys on the floor?” Marco asked.
Rebecca bent down to look at the floor. Just when she bent down, Marco slipped a pill in her coffee.
“I don’t see anything,” Rebecca said.
“Sorry, I guess I was seeing things. Don’t let your coffee get cold”, he said.
“Yeah,” Rebecca said. She started taking sips of coffee. All of a sudden, Rebecca started rubbing her eyes.
“What’s wrong?” Marco asked smiling.
“I feel really tired and a little dizzy,” she said.
“Well, it is two in the morning. I’m sure you’re just tired and stressed out. Let me drive you home. You shouldn’t be driving in this condition,” Marco said.
“Okay, thanks. I feel so strange!” Rebecca eyes started rolling around and her body became weak.
Marco helped lift her out of her seat and walked her to his car. He sat her in the back seat.
“Just sit back and relax; I’ll get you home,” he said. Marco got in and started to drive.
” Wait! Don’t you need my address? Where are you going?” Rebecca asked in a slurred voice.
“Just sit back,” he said. Just when Rebecca reached out her arm to stop him, she passed out.
Marco continued to drive and smiled.
Rebecca had another big argument with her husband, so she decided to take that offer for coffee with Marco. But it turns out that maybe that wasn’t such a good idea. Marco slipped something in her coffee that caused her to pass out. Now instead of driving her home, he is driving her who knows where! Read the continuation to find out what happens next!
