Part 1: It’s Over
Floyd and Laina just wrapped up another one of their morning sex rituals. After sex they would always hold each other. But that morning, Floyd wasn't in the mood. In fact he feigned an orgasm the whole time. "I could have gotten a better nut by watching porn instead." He thought.
He got out of bed and walked to the bathroom without saying anything. “Floyd aren’t you forgetting something baby?” She teased as she pulled back the covers revealing her naked perfectly flawless coco brown curvy figure. Floyd stopped and looked at her with a disgusted expression on his face and he shook his head. His cold stare sent chills down her spine.
“Floyd what’s the matter baby?” She meekly asked. He remained silent and walked into the bathroom shutting the door loud enough to make her jump. Laina was shocked and scared beyond belief. Her heart was beating fast enough to leave its’ imprint in her chest. She cautiously got out of bed and walked to the bathroom door. She slowly turned the knob and gasped when the knob wouldn’t budge. Floyd locked the door. She frantically turned the knob and then she started beating on the door.
“Floyd what the hell is your problem?
What has gotten in to you?”
There was still no response from him.
“What have I done to you? Floyd please say something baby.” Suddenly she heard the toilet flush. “Open this goddamn door right now Floyd!!” She roared. She kicked, screamed, punched, and clawed at the door as if Jason Voorhees the hockey masked killer was going to come into their bedroom and stab her to death. Ten kicks, fifteen punches, thirteen insults, and eighteen scratches later, she finally gave up. She dropped to her knees and cried like a baby. The door opened and Floyd stood in front of her soak and wet with a maroon colored towel wrapped around his chiseled torso. He could give Reggie Bush a run for his money. He was a brawny man who stood at 6’6 with a dark brown complexion, a low haircut, and broad shoulders. It was obvious he was very mad at Laina and he couldn’t wait to unveil why he was irate at her, but he wanted to see her squirm like a worm first. Her presence alone was enough to make him squeamish and he couldn’t wait to carve her out of his life. She sat on the floor and stared at him with blood shot eyes. Her short hair was a matted pile of mess and her nose was covered in tears and mucus. She looked like Halloween in the summertime (A hot mess).
“Do you hate me?” She asked in a soft and raspy tone.
“I don’t hate you and I don’t love you either.” He casually said. He walked past her as if she was a piece of lent in the carpet.His cold words rang in her ears. She thought she was hearing more than one voice. She quickly stood up and stared at him in awe. She took a deep breath and asked,
“Are you telling me you don’t love me?”
“You just answered your own question, baby girl.” He said as he opened the drawer and pulled a pair of white Calvin Klein boxer briefs. “How can you stand your narrow ass over there and tell me you don’t love me when we’ve been screwing each other for six months.” She hissed.
“You’re absolutely right. We’ve had sex for six months that’s it.” She watched him put on his boxer shorts. She had to constrain herself from climbing on him and straddling him on the bed to make him reconsider his feelings for her. She immediately shook off her trance.
“What do you mean that’s it? We have sex and we do the same things married couples do.”
She walked towards him but she stopped when he held up a green opened Trojan condom wrapper.
“I found this wrapper underneath your pillow last night. Do you have any idea who this belongs too? We both know it isn’t mine because I only wear “Strapped” condoms and you use diaphragm and birth control pills. Laina didn’t say anything. The tears in her eyes confirmed her infidelity. She bit her lip until she drew blood from them.
“I had sex with my boss. We had a few drinks for lunch and I invited him here yesterday and one thing to led to the next. I’m really sorry Floyd. It only happened once and we were totally out of it. I promise you it’ll never happen again.” She cried.
Floyd looked at her and laughed like a mad scientist. She stared at him as if he was a burglar who broke into the house.
“Do you expect me to believe that you brought another man into my house and sexed him on my bed only once? His laughter transformed into a frightening glower. “You have to believe me Flo---“She tried to defend her actions until he verbally cut her off.
“Shut the hell up You Filthy Slut!” How dare you expect me to believe that you and your boss only slept together once. I tried my best to love you. But your unthankful, materialistic whoring ass makes it difficult for me to love you. I stopped trying to love you three months ago. I kept you around out of guilt. I don’t love you. In fact, I’ve been wanting to tell you that I’m in love with another woman. Whenever we have one of our petty arguments, I go to her house and I tell about us. She’s a good listener and I never slept with her. Unlike you she’s a real woman,” He boasted. Laina slapped him and spat in his face. Floyd wiped her saliva from his nose.
“You are so full of crap. You’re reviling me and calling me out for sleeping with another man when you’re the one whose also creeping with another bitch. So umm..who is she? What’s her name? Do I know her?” Laina defiantly folded her arms and pursed her lips together with slits in her eyes.
“Her name is Sherry and you know her as the disfigured and disabled woman from our church. I’m in love with her,” He proudly said. “Wait a minute…what one damn minute…are you telling me that you’re willing to shirk our relationship and leave my foxy, voluptuous and beautiful ass for that ugly ass broad? What the hell do you
want with her? She’s physically ruined and I don’t think a blind man would want to be with someone that ugly. You have totally lost it. I don’t even know who the hell you are anymore.” Laina was about to slap him but he caught her hand in a knick of time. “I love her, Laina. I know she gets condemned for what she looks like but her inner beauty outweighs her exterior. She has a beautiful spirit. Despite of the fiery car crash that burnt sixty five percent of her body and paralyzed her from the neck down, she’s always in high spirits. She makes me feel like no other woman has ever made me feel. I’m in love with her and I don’t give a damn who's opposed to it. He slowly released his grip from Laina’s wrist. “It’s over, Laina.” Laina cried and said, “You’re making a big mistake. When your relationship with her falters, you’re going to come running back to me for forgiveness and I’m going to shut you down like an old dusty arcade game. You will regret this,” She seethed. “Being with you was my biggest regret,” He quipped. “This is not over yet. Mark my words,” She said in a chilling tone. Floyd wasn’t prepared to hear her say that. “Are threatening me?” She didn’t respond.
“You really think I’m playing with your trifling ass.” He vehemently grabbed her by the arm. He picked her up and carried her out of the house with no clothes on. She kicked and screamed like a 5 year old who didn’t want to be seen by a dentist. He shoved her outside and slammed the door in her face. He kind of felt bad about kicking her out of his house with no clothes on. But after he thought about the scandalous revelation she unveiled to him, it made him feel good about his actions. His morning started off on a rocky start but the day was still young and he was destined to make the best of it, with his Sherry Amor.
