The phone rang at 11:45 p.m., just as I was drifting off to sleep. It was my new billionaire sugar daddy, Michael. “Hello?” I asked still half asleep.
“What are you doing?” Michael asked chuckling. “You aren’t sleeping are you? Because I want to see you, say in a half hour?”
“I’ll be there in 45 minutes,” I responded as I sat up. I was suddenly very much awake.
“See you soon sexy.” And with that, he hung up. My friend and his ex-sugar baby, Kate, said he was exhausting, and boy was she right. I thought about just going back to bed instead. But I wanted to get to know Michael, so I hopped in the shower and was on my way. I didn’t exactly get all “glammed up,” because it wasn’t my style. I figured that if Michael really liked me, then he should like me for me. If not, too damn bad. I take care of my appearance, but I wasn’t interested in always walking around with 10 pounds of makeup, false eyelashes, and a push-up bra.
To my surprise, Michael much rather preferred the more natural look on me. When I arrived, he noticed right away and loved it. He hugged me and kissed my cheek while placing his hand on my lower back to guide me into the house.
We headed down to the bar where Michael mixed our drinks and we talked. Michael asked if I was nervous. “I really like you,” he said. “I think you can give me what I need. You and Kate are wonderful, but I am really just interested in you at this point. You seem like the kind of down-to-earth girl I need in my life. You are open-minded, naturally beautiful, and kind.”
What he said next really took me by surprise. “I want to take you on a trip. Let’s go anywhere you want. How does that sound?” He asked, grinning.
“Lovely, but traveling will have to wait until I get a break from school. Is Kate OK with all of this? She really loved you, you know,” I asked hesitantly.
“Kate will be fine. Would you like to go play now? I have some interesting ideas for us.” Michael asked.
It seemed as though everything Kate said about him was right. Michael used his money to get whatever he wanted, and that included me. I was OK with this, at first. I didn’t want anything serious and wanted to quit working at the bar. Michael was the answer to that predicament. He seemed to genuinely want more with me than he had with Kate. I had no problem with this, because between Michael and me, things were easy. Everything flowed. Michael was a lot older than I was, but despite the age difference, we had a great time together.
So, I silenced my nerves and we headed into the room to “play.”
