How I Used an Older Man’s Money to Get Back at My Husband After He Kicked Me Out: Part 2

How I Used an Older Man’s Money to Get Back at My Husband After He Kicked Me Out: Part 2There was some­thing about Derrick’s voice, some­thing about his eyes, his lips, and his very presence—just the mem­ory of him was sooth­ing. Often, I would text him just so that I could feel close to him. Many of those times he did not reply, or when he did, it was to say that he was busy at work or with his wife, but I did it any­way because it felt good.  I felt con­tent just know­ing that I was con­tact­ing him and let­ting him know that I was think­ing of him. It was sim­ply enough to tell him how I felt.

When three days passed with no call or text from my hus­band, I told Der­rick that I would be going back to my par­ents’ house. He insisted that I not involve them and assured me that Robert would call me. “He just needs time,” he would say. Der­rick told me that no one was liv­ing in the old house that he had orig­i­nally bought for me. “It’s been empty for months. The maids go to clean, but that’s all. Stay as long as you need. If two weeks pass with no con­tact, then go home. Trust me.”

Der­rick was right. Five days after I moved into my old house, Robert called and apol­o­gized. He said that he was incred­i­bly sorry for over­re­act­ing. He apol­o­gized sin­cerely and said that know­ing that I had been with a mar­ried man reminded him of his ex-wife. “I kept push­ing, try­ing to find an answer as to why, when I really wanted to ask my ex. I treated you unfairly. What you did years ago should not mat­ter. I was wrong. Come home. I miss my faith­ful wife. You have never done me wrong and I treated you as if you had. I am very sorry.”

We spoke for hours as he apol­o­gized, but he was too late. I was no longer the faith­ful wife he referred to. He was two days too late. I had already crossed the line and was now hav­ing an affair. In fact, as we spoke, I was in Derrick’s arms.

It’s time,” I said as I turned to Der­rick. “I’m sorry.”

We both knew this day would come,” he said. He actu­ally looked as sad as I felt. “I had hoped that it would be later, not sooner.” I smiled and hugged him.

Before I went back to my hus­band, I made love to Der­rick again—it was the third time that day. I kissed him and loved him like I had in the past, free of inhi­bi­tion. My hus­band treated me like I was a whore, so I fig­ured I might as well start act­ing like one.
