The next morning, we headed off to see the whales. It was an absolutely marvelous day. But as incredible as it was to see, I felt like my heart was breaking from the distance my Stetson man was putting between us, and because of that, there wasn’t any way I was going to get my heart involved with the Greek God. I didn’t want it to get broken again. As I listened to the music the whales made I truly wondered if I had completely lost the Stetson man, or if I could still repair what was missing.
After several hours, it was time to head back to the resort. As we got back to our villa, Tori said she wanted to take a nap by the pool. She suggested we go down by the main resort pool and check out the scenery. I agreed with her and as we walked in our bikinis, we were turning heads.
We got comfortable on the chairs and almost immediately I saw the Greek God with his wife. They were lying in the sun talking to each other like older married couples do. I motioned for Tori to look and we were both stunned. I told Tori we needed to leave and go back to the private villa. I wasn’t sure how the Greek God would handle seeing me in front of his wife, so I figured it was safer to just leave. Tori wanted to stay and see if she could get a take on their relationship. I decided to stay in the danger zone with Tori while she did her detective work. Our lounge chairs were situated right where the Greek God and his wife would have to pass to leave.
His wife walked in front of him as they left the pool. Normally, this would have upset me had this been the Stetson man; however, this was like watching a slow motion movie. My feelings weren’t involved and to be honest, it gave me a sense of personal power. I sat there knowing that he would have rather been with me than his wife, and that made me content. Once they were gone, Tori and I went back to our villa.
I asked Tori to detail her detective work. She felt like the Greek God was very distracted once he saw us by the pool, and that he was just pacifying his wife for those few hours. It was obvious he couldn’t keep his eyes off me.
A little while later, the Greek God called. “I have the wife busy on a shopping excursion and we will have a few hours to ourselves. I want to show you some of the islands.” I’m beginning to believe older men love to teach their younger women about the world. He chartered a helicopter ride and as we hovered over Maui, the Greek God kept his eyes fixed on me. It was as if he was trying to drink me up. I discovered a long time ago that older men couldn’t resist the doe-eyed look I would give them when I caught them staring at me. He was no different.
After landing back at the airport, I was asked to take a ride with the Greek God. I accepted and when he stopped the car, we got out and walked on the beach. It was fun playing in the surf and kicking water at each other. He gently kissed me, and not just a casual kiss, but one that really meant something. I started teasing him, asking if he was sure he had his wife occupied so she wouldn’t see us together. He explained that she really wasn’t that interested in him as much as she was his bank account.
One thing I knew for sure was that then when it comes to wives, they may not seem interested, but the minute they see the money going to some prettier, younger woman, that’s when their interest picks back up.
Unfortunately for his wife, the Greek God was one man I wasn’t willing to let go of. I had to spend time with him no matter what. The Stetson man had my heart, but this Greek God had my attention.
