I ignored my cell phone ringing two or three times. I knew it was my lover and my boss, Mr. Brown, calling to check up on me and make sure I had made it home safely and that the girls were happy to be home. Unfortunately, I couldn’t answer it because I was standing face-to-face with my ex-husband and he was at my new home, that I was just gifted from my boss.
My ex had a look of confusion on his face and immediately started with the questions. Where did I get the money for a house payment? Who really paid for my vacation with the girls? He knew I had a little bit of savings, but certainly not enough for a house. I had to come clean.
I let him know that my boss of years had become my new love interest. I told him about the vacation and I told him about the girls meeting him as my boyfriend for the first time. He was so pissed. I could tell by the look on his face. He started yelling that I had probably been cheating on him when we were married. He knew how affluent Mr. Brown and his wife were in the community, so he threatened to run and tell Mr. Brown’s wife and all the people at the firm I worked at. I told him they were already aware of the relationship between us and that Mrs. Brown wasn’t keeping well and did not need him stirring up any unnecessary drama or issues. My phone rang again, and this time I answered it. My ex-husband knew who it was, but I couldn’t ignore the calls anymore.
I picked up the phone and said, “Hello.” It was Mr. Brown, he said he had rode by the house and seen a familiar vehicle in my driveway, but that it looked suspicious, since we had just gotten home. I told him it was my ex-husband dropping by to see the kids. I didn’t want to alarm him and cause any more issues for the time being. I walked into the living room, hoping that my ex wouldn’t hear my entire conversation. This just angered him more. He started yelling at me, telling me he would take the kids away from me and that I didn’t deserve to have custody of my children if I was planning on jet-setting across the country with my boss. He kept yelling that Mr. Brown was probably cheating on me with multiple other women.
I tried to just ignore him and focus on my conversation with Mr. Brown. I heard him yelling for the girls, asking them questions about our vacation. At that point, I hung up the phone with Mr. Brown. I didn’t want any more drama. Mr. Brown immediately sent me a text message and reminded me that he was one of the best lawyers in the state, and that my ex-husband wouldn’t be taking my kids away from me ever.
I went back into the room and told my ex that my new relationship was not any of his concern and that everything was fine. He looked at me with a look of disgust, but I knew that I was going to leave on another business trip soon and my ex would be taking care of the kids. So, I needed to be civil with him for the sake of my kids. But I knew that this was just one of the issues that me and my sugar daddy/boss would be experiencing in our relationship over the next couple of months.
