WS: Chronicles of a Nympho [Ep7]

Chronicles of a Nympho

Continued from Episode 6

Nini rushes to my bedside and immediately I fling off the covers as we both lock in an embrace.

She understands me, always has, and always will. I nestle in her arms, she smells like citrus and a nice musky fragrance. I want to ask her what it is but I tuck that thought aside for later, she rubs my back up and down in a soothing manner, about 20 seconds into it I lift up my head and look into her face. She looks well rested.

She has worry etched all over her face, I smile, but I doubt I am in the least bit convincing, with my face swollen and tear stained.

She lifts my head up from my chin.

Nini: What happened?

She adjusts the covers as she sits more comfortably, taking off her shoes and tucking her feet under her.

Me: I’m just so sad Ni, so sad… and lonely.

She looks back at me, her eyes are filled with shock I can see them, but she is trying her best to conceal them.

Nini: But you sounded so happy when Rex was here… Did something happen?

She leans forward, holding my hand in hers.

 

I lean over to the bedside lamp and pick a tissue from the top. I noisily blow my nose into it. I feel terrible, maybe because a part of me believes that Rex is right; I am a piece of work, but then I was exclusive to him, I let go of these other men for him… I did.

Me: We broke up.

Nini: Again?!?!?!

I feel my eyes well up. Again

I start to yell for no reason.

Me: Don’t look at me like that Nini! I tried, we were on a good path, and you spoke to him. Didn’t he sound happy? Then all of a sudden, poof! That side of him is gone, replaced with the evil monster that’s buried deep in him. The side he doesn’t show to everybody, he keeps just for me!

I am walking up and down the room, to and fro. Nini is following me with her eyes, visibly confused and curious. She doesn’t interrupt me, she just listens.

Me: We made love Ni, for the first time in a very long time, we made love… And it was good… It was fantastic… It was so different. Like…like… he was in love… Yes that’s how it felt – it felt like he loved me. His touch, the way he nibbled, everything was so different.

I pause as I look back to Nini, wanting to see if she is still following me, she is, she looks exasperated, but still she doesn’t say anything. So I continue…

Me: Then BOOM!! Out of nowhere he changes, the next morning he makes breakfast like really early, I come down and he is already in the kitchen, washing the pans and dishes effortlessly.

Nini untucked her feet from underneath her and exhales. I ignore it…

I keep telling her about the morning and then I stand still as I give her the last part.

Me: ‘Maybe it’s just for the sex, I can’t help it, and you have bomb pussy. Or you have some superpowers. And you’re always available when I’m bored; it’s nothing serious, a meaningful distraction if I may.’

This time I see a bit of shock in her face.

Nini: You know something Yesmin?

I sit on the chair facing the bed, as she is about to proceed.

Nini: I know you enjoy the power you have over these men, Rex especially, but when are you going to realize that he has feelings, genuine feelings and for him this is not a game, he likes you… Clearly, from where I am sitting and all I have seen I can call it love too. Then for you it is, Oh I don’t want to settle, it’s boring, let’s switch it up, let’s make him sweat’.

My eyes well up again. What is she saying? What does this mean?

Me: You’re saying this is my fault?

I say slowly, the hurt and unbelief visible in my tone. She is looking at me, unmoved.

Nini: I am saying maybe you need to re-evaluate, maybe you need to sit down and think about what you want versus what you need.

I can’t believe this. Really?

I start to get up, I am angry… More hurt than angry. Why is she being so damn serious? What does she mean by all that?

Me: Maybe I should just handle my personal issues by myself from now on; I keep forgetting I am alone in this life. I have nobody but myself, literally no one. Thank you Nini!

I start to walk out from the room.

She raises here voice.

Nini: You always make such a big drama, is that what you think really? I have always been there, always will be, you expect me to see you kicking out the one man that genuinely loves and cares for you away and you want me to lick your wounds and make a pint of ice cream as we bitch over him. NO! You know me better than that. You do.

I shake my head, I am about to explode. This is the last thing I need.

Me: You’ve hurt me Nini, you really have, but it’s all good. Goodbye.

I walk to the closet as I yank off a jeans and a sweater with the first pair of sneakers I see. I couldn’t wait to look for underwear. I walk swiftly to the salon as I put on my jeans and I pick up the car key and my phone. I walk to the door as I yank it open quickly, shutting it behind me as I leave the house. I fall against the door in sheer exhaustion as I try to gather myself.

30 minutes later I am parked outside Café Jade, I just want to get something to eat and walk out of there. I am not dressed right to start with. I turn off the engine as I wait inside the car, I bring out a comb as I take out my hair and run it through my hair. My curls bounce to life immediately, the curls shiny and brunette. I try to pinch some color into my cheeks. Nini’s words keep replaying in my head, is she right?

It’s never a game to me, I mean… I was straight with Rex for the get go, he knew what this what about. I never sell the wrong information. Ever

A security guard comes to rap at my window; I take the glass down and attend to him. As he sees my face, he smiles broadly and looks visibly shy.

Sigh…

Me: Yes?

He stutters.

Security Guard: Please Ma’am, could you please park well, the car at the back is trying to park too.

I mumble my apology and adjust my car. I come out of the car as I quickly apply my honey lip balm to my lips. I make my way inside, I suddenly realize I have lost all my appetite, but I am here already so I just order. I couldn’t really pay attention, my phone rings and I almost fall over myself trying to pick it. It’s Jason from the office, lord what does the guy want now?

Me: Hello Jason.

The image flashes in my head and I almost puke.

Jason: Hi Yesmin, how are you this fine morning?

Just say how you are this morning. This morning, what is a fine morning? Argh my God! I roll my eyes. Clearly irritated

Me: Not bad, you? What’s up?

Jason: I was wondering if you had plans this weekend?

I almost burst out laughing.

 

He continues.

Jason: Maybe we could go see the new Mission Impossible?

This one has lost it… Clearly and surely

Me: Whoa, crazy weekend I have already. Rain check?

He pauses. What was he expecting to hear though?

Jason: Oh okay then, so I will text you, can I?

Knock yourself out.

Me: Sure why not.

He chuckles.

Jason: Have a great day babe.

Babe?

I disconnect the call.

 

My order is ready and I bring out my card to pay; praying to God their POS is working. It works. I quickly head to my car. As I throw the order to the back seat. I don’t feel so good.

I wonder what Rex is doing… Are we really done? A huge part of me fears that we are done and it’s over, he is so damn irritating! I don’t need him, I don’t care what happens.

My phone rings again. It’s Nini.

I owe her an apology.

Me: Ni…

She cuts me off…

Nini: I’m sorry sis… I miss you.

I start crying immediately, I can never control my water works.

Me: No, you didn’t say anything wrong, it’s all me. I am sorry, so sorry. I miss you more.

We both talk about how much we are sorry and I apologize again as I disconnect the call and make my way home.

I pull into the house and Nini is swinging the door open waiting for me. I smile as we make eye contact. I come out of the car as I turn off the engine. I walk up to her as we embrace tightly.

Nini: Are you okay?

Smile and kiss her on the cheek.

Me: I am good, I am sorry for all I said.

She bats it all aside with her hand.

Nini: It’s all gone babe, we alright. Now I owe you that Pint of ice cream, it’s ready, just as you like.

I grin widely.

Noooooo way!

Me: With Oreo toppings? And the gummy bears in it?

She laughs as we make our way inside the house.

 

We are 15 minutes into watching the season finale of Devious Maids, I look over at Nini, I am so thankful for her, I don’t know how my life would have turned out without her. I am glad she hasn’t brought up Rex and all that happened, I want to talk about him to her because he knows him and she understands. I guess, she still think it’s open wounds. We should just enjoy this moment… I snuggle closer to her.

Nini’s phone beeps and she reaches for it and smiles mischievously.

I look over at her.

Nini: OMG! OMG… look who wants to play.

I sit up, intrigued.

Me: What’s wrong, what?

She hands me the phone and I look into the screen, it’s an email.

OMG. I smile. I look over at Nini, we both laugh out loud.

And she looks at me and says sarcastically.

Nini: Oh, we didn’t see that coming.
