Why I Wouldn’t Regret Cheating on My Husband with a Sugar Daddy: Part 2

Derrick’s laugh inter­rupted my rant. “You didn’t care about the money? She told me every­thing, Cassie. My wife told me every­thing! You lied to me. And you didn’t care about the money? You really want me to believe that you didn’t care about the money?”

Tears started to fall down my cheeks. I was infu­ri­ated. His words cut like a knife, but I wasn’t ready to give up this fight. After every­thing I went through for him, I couldn’t believe that he really thought I didn’t love him. “I always loved you,” I snapped back. “From day one, I lost con­tact with all of my friends and fam­ily, for you! Yes, the money was nice. The gifts made the drama bear­able, but lis­ten very care­fully. I would have given up all the money and gifts just to feel your love, to have you to myself and to know that you were solely mine.” With those words, I got up and started head­ing towards the door. He tried to grab me but I was too fast. I ran out of his office.

Once I got out of the build­ing, I sat on a bench near the park­ing lot. I looked up to the sky for answers, hop­ing God would some­how reas­sure me and give me strength. I closed my eyes and just con­cen­trated on the warm sun hit­ting my face, when sud­denly, I felt some­one sit down beside me. When I opened my eyes, I saw Der­rick, with heavy, tear-filled eyes.

I loved you too, Cassie. I wanted us to work out more than you could ever imag­ine.” A tear ran down his face and he quickly wiped it away. He also looked up to the sky, per­haps for the same rea­son I did, and then closed his eyes. He wrapped his arm around me and we both sat there in silence. I don’t know how long we were sit­ting there, but it felt like an eter­nity. In our silence, we were able to com­mu­ni­cate things that words could never have described.

When he finally took my hand in his, I actu­ally felt the peace between us. We were just two old lovers, sit­ting next to each other in silence, try­ing to fig­ure out what our next step would be.
