When the day finally arrived for me to sign my lease, Marco took me aside, gently kissed me, and said, “Before you go, just know that you always have a friend in me. You always have a home here and you do not need to leave—just stop seeing what’s-his-name.”
It hurt to hear him say this, because it was as if he thought money could keep me. But I let it slide. I remember smiling at Marco, hugging him, and telling him, “I love you. I always have and always will. You’ve been good to me, but now it’s time for me to strike out on my own.”
Victor surprised me by meeting me at the new apartment with an adorable little bonsai plant. He walked through the apartment with me, pointing out defects to be noted, and acted as my “good moral character reference” that the landlady requested.
Victor and I headed back to Marco’s house together. He was there waiting for me, but was shocked to actually meet Victor in person. They shook hands and said their hellos, but it was incredibly awkward. Victor and I began moving my belongings to the new place. Marco helped when necessary and otherwise watched TV.
When we headed back into Marco’s house for the last few things, I was feeling quite frisky and decided to run an insane idea past Victor. It was totally out of this world, but the idea intrigued me.
I thought might be fun to see if Victor would be interested in a threesome with Marco. I didn’t know if Marco would go for it, but I wanted to and Victor was surprisingly on board.
When we got back to the house, Marco was still just watching TV. We gathered the last bit of my stuff and placed it by the front door. I walked back into the living room where Marco was sitting and started to undress in front of him. “What are you doing?” he asked, shocked and excited at the same time. I didn’t answer him and instead, kissed him passionately.
“You are crazy. Your new boyfriend is right there! Is this a setup? Are you tricking me, Vivian?” Marco asked, as he kissed me back, his eye still on Victor. I stood up and removed the rest of my clothing as I walked over to Victor. He quickly undressed and kissed me passionately, pressing his naked toned body into mine. He turned me around to face Marco and nudged me back over toward him, as he followed behind me.
And that was it—the three of us enjoyed a wild couple of hours together. There were very few fleeting moments of jealous awkwardness that was quickly diminished. Once we were finished, Victor left ahead of me. I kissed Marco goodbye and went to my new home to begin my new independent life. It was the most bittersweet goodbye I had ever experienced.
