Previously On Dirty Diana… .
“Hey Diana,” he said smiling.
“Um, thanks…again—for my um, my uh, glasses!.
“No problem.” He laughed at my obvious impishness.
“Well, I guess I’ll see you at my party tonight?”
“Yeah, sure. I, um, I guess,”
I thought my heart was going to explode from how quickly it was beating. What Jason had just done was exactly why I liked him. He was nice, even though he was considered to be an Adonis in the halls of my hall Prep, yet he still managed to act like a decent human being.
i’m sorry for barging into your office, the way you treated me the last time we met was so totally uncalled for. You slept with me, used my body to satisfy yourself and spit at me afterwards. I do like you for who you are but i just don’t know anymore. I now feel like an abused girl” she poured out solemnly.
“you know we shouldn’t be having such discussion here at my office. we can head to a quiet place far away from the school vicinity to talk about your problem
“seriously i really do regret and apologize the way i treated you two days ago,
“i do understand but since it has happened, you shouldn’t kill yourself over it, moreover i think i’m in Love with you. I
“Diana! You look amazing!” I exclaimed happily..
“… Oh my god, is that – is that me?” she asked softly.
“Thank you Diva. I owe you,”
“As ready as I’ve ever been,”
“That’s the spirit!” .

When we got inside the house there were people everywhere. Everyone was dancing with each other… or making out with each other. Though, admittedly, not everyone was on the dance floor.
“So how do you like it so far?” i asked.
“Fine, I guess. It’s just like all the others we went to,” she replied back solemnly
“Yeah, but for this one you’re all dressed up, and looking extremely pretty.”
“Yeah, I know, you said that… many times.” She grinned up at me.
“But you do,” I told her again, smiling brightly back.
“Okay, so what -” Before she could finish though, Rachel came over and interrupted her.
“Diana, is that you?” she asked, eyes wide in surprise.
“Yes,” she said, looking irritated.
“You look good,” she said, annoyingly letting her voice rise to show that she was faking her sincerity. I sent her a glare that she promptly ignored.
“Thanks… I guess,” Diana said, looking down.
“Come play with us,” Rachel said, beginning to drag her and me off to who knows where.
“What are we playing?” I asked, wondering why she was even talking to us. It’s not like either of us were subtle about not liking each other.
“Seven minutes in heaven,” Rachel replied back with a sultry smirk.
“What do we have to do?” I asked suspiciously.
“Well a girl goes into the washroom, and then she gets blindfolded. Next a guy will come in, and you get to spend ‘seven minutes in heaven’ with him.”
My eyes widened as her full meaning hit me. “So do you want to play?” I heard the pushiness in her voice and once again wondered at her friendliness.
I shrugged it away though and decided to see if maybe this game would make Diana enjoy the party a little more.
“Do you want to play, Dee?” I asked, not feeling to hopeful.
“No.” She shrugged and turned back
“We don’t want to play.”
“Too bad, you have to. Come on it will be fun, plus Kojo, Jason, and a lot of other hot guys will be playing.” Her whining was getting on my nerves, but I perked at hearing Jason’s name.
“Fine we’ll play,” I answered back, grinning. I mean this might be the chance Diana needed to confess to Jason.
“Good. Now Diana, you can go first,” Rachel said, handing her the blindfold.
“Fine,” Diana said with a sigh before taking it and wearily putting it on.
Oh Stella, what a surprise, where have you been all these while?” i replied nervously, wondering what could be going through the woman’s mind as she stood before Comfort and I.
“seriously i have been very busy with work my dear but i will make out time to visit you guys very soon. I know your wife must be very mad at me for staying away for so long.
Anyway i have to run along. See you soon” she smiled and left the restaurant, saying no single word to comfort. I bit my lips as i watched her disappear, of course there wasn’t any doubt she was going to tell my wife about all she saw.
“you know you have ruined my marriage?” i said to comfort who shrugged and shook her head.
“how did i ruin your marriage?” she asked softly. I scoffed, shook my head and breathed deeply.
“how come i didn’t notice Ralph’s wife when i walked into this place?” i reasoned fearfully. “my marriage is ruined. How do i explain to my wife what i was doing in a restaurant with a young lady when i was supposed to be at work?” i asked myself, sweat slowly drenching my body.
“what are you thinking sir?” i heard Comfort ask curiously.
“stop pretending as if you don’t know what is going on with me. The woman that just left is my wife’s friend for goodness sake. Don’t you understand?” I cried angrily.
“finish your meal let’s get out of this place” i said to her coldly.
The fire in my eyes was enough to silence Comfort who did nothing than rush up her meal without saying another word
Once it was on, Rachel practically forced Diana into the washroom, and told her one of the guys would be coming soon. I hoped for my friend’s sake that it was Jason.
Out of the corner of my eye I spotted Rachel and the other girls talking about something that I couldn’t hear. When I focused in though Rachel left the group. She probably went to go get one of the guys. To my horror she came back a few seconds later with Kojo.
No! I thought. It can’t be him, he’s such a jerk. I quickly moved to stop him from going in but one of the girls grabbed me and held me down.
I struggled as much as I could, but found that I couldn’t move from my place. I tried to open my mouth, but another girl came over and covered my mouth so that I couldn’t yell either.
Breathing hard I glared at them before focusing in on a smirking Kojo as he twiddled his fingers at me and walked through the washroom door. I frantically hoped that nothing bad would happen to Diana.
Please, Diana, please be alright.
30mins later, i found myself at home, looking very guilty and scared. My wife was at the kitchen when i got into the house. She was yet to resume her hospital work due to the little health crises she had two days ago.
“my love” i breathed, drew close and kissed her neck from behind. She turned and stared at me with surprise.
“hmmm i never heard you walk in?” she said with a welcoming smile.
“the front door was open, so i simply walked in. Why did you leave the door open?. Did any of your friends visit?” i asked curiously.
“no dear, i rushed out minutes earlier to buy fresh pepper. I forgot to lock the door when i got back. I’m sorry” she apologized without knowing the real reason i asked the question.
“but can you believe Stella called me today?. After such a long time of avoiding us. Guess what?. She’s coming on Sunday with her husband and Kid. We are having lunch with them on Sunday”
She giggled with excitement while my face fell with fear. I was so scared. I knew the silly woman was coming over to gossip with her. She was definitely coming to share her discovery with my young innocent wife. I just was so confused as a thousand and one ideas ran into my head that very moment.
A part of me wanted to confront Stella and beg her not to say a word about what she saw to my wife, but doing such thing could also be an admission of guilt. Yes she had nothing strong to prove her point but i just couldn’t allow such information to get to my wife nor allow her harbour such speculation in her heart.
However another part of me, urged me to cook up a good lie and present to my wife before her friend shows up on Sunday. I just didn’t know which idea to follow.
“dearest, are you alright?” my wife suddenly asked with concern.
“I’m alright my love” i answered, forcing out a smile to hide my feelings. But the question still remained therein.
“should i talk to Stella in a bid to stop her from opening up to my wife or should i find something to tell my wife concerning Comfort?”
what should i do??
I was standing inside the closet for what felt like forever, before someone actually came in. I was really hoping that it was Jason, but I obviously couldn’t look to see.
“Diana?” the guy asked.
“Yeah,” I answered back, wondering who it was. His voice didn’t sound too familiar since it was kind of low and whispered. It could be anyone really.
“Oh, that’s good,” he said with a hint of… maybe joy in his voice?
“And why would that be?” I asked curiously.
“Well… because I’ve always had a little crush on you,” he said, sounding modest.
“Wait… what?” Had a crush on me? Who was this guy?
“Yeah, do you – do you know who I am?”
“No,” I said honestly while shaking my head.
“It’s me. Jason.”
“Jason? Is it really?” I felt a blush start to creep on my face.
“Yes, I’ve always had a crush on you,” he admitted.
“Really? Because I have a crush on you too,” I admitted as well. I couldn’t believe what was going on. This couldn’t be real.
“You do?” he asked, definite joy now in his voice.
“Yes, Jason… I-I-I love you,” I stuttered out, embarrassed and blushing deeper, but happy.
“I love you too, and I’ve always wanted to do this,” he said, his voice getting softer with each word.
“What?” I asked, my voice softening as well.
“This.” I took in a short intake of breath as I felt his breath near my face, and I was in heaven. Was I really going to kiss Jason tonight? I really hoped so. I leaned in, but I didn’t feel his lips or the softness that I’d always wanted to touch. All I heard was a door opening and people laughing.
Wait… laughing? I quickly ripped off my blindfold, and saw people pointing and laughing at me. I frantically took in everyone and spotted Diva being restrained by two girls.
My breathing was hard as she stared helplessly back at me, an apology written all over her face. I looked up to see that it wasn’t Jason next to me, but Kojo. And he was laughing harder and louder than anyone.
“Did you really think someone like Jason would actually love you?” he asked when he saw me staring at him in shock.
“I- I…” I tried to say something, anything, but then I saw Jason standing in the crowd. Kojo noticed him at the same time I did.
“Guess what, man? Dirty Diana here, said that she loves you,” Kojo said smirking over at Jason.
“What?” Jason answered, surprise written on his face as he looked at me in confusion.
Then, as if it wasn’t bad enough, Kojo suddenly pressed the button of something in his hand. Suddenly my voice filled the room, softly stuttering out, “Yes, Jason I-I-I love you.”
Everybody started laughing again, and Jason just stood there, looking awkward. I bit my lip and choked back a sob as more laughter filled my ears.
I knew it, he didn’t like me. I mean how could he? Obviously this whole thing was another sick joke. I bet Rachel, Kojo, and everybody at this entire party was in on it.
Disgusted, tired, and embarrassed I finally couldn’t stand their ridicule anymore. So I ran. In the background I could hear Diva’s voice yelling at me to stop, but I didn’t listen. I just kept going, crying the entire way home.
