Two hours later, Peter walks out of the hotel smiling
“Piece of cake” he looked at the negative films he had of camera log from two days ago , stretching it over a couple of months back.
All he had to do was wash the films and print it.
He hoped Rebecca had his money handy.
He drove home. He needs to get to work.
**** Uptown. Adam’s Office***
“What are you doing here?” Adam askes the woman as he turns
“Well, Good morning to you to Mr Adams Wellington, won’t you offer me a sit?” She helps herself.
“Well for someone who lied to my wife about seeing me in a hotel with another woman. No. You aren’t welcome here. Not in my office and most definitely not in my house, not anymore and I want you to stay away from my wife. Sophia doesn’t need you as a friend. You are bad news!!”
He places his hands on the desk. He was thankful that it wasn’t Bella that came that would have been a disaster. But he didn’t expect to see Rebecca either. Why was she even here?
“Look Adams. I am not here to fight or anything, I just came to apologise. Sophia spoke to me and I believe I had too much to drink that night and suffering from a broken heart and I thought I saw someone like you, I swear. And as a friend I wanted to shield my friend from the pain of a cheating husband. You know. Been there. I know how it hurts. I really didn’t mean to cause any tension in your family so here I am coming to apologise to you and waving the white flag and all that jazz. Forgive me?” She gave her most genuine smile.
Adams studies her for a full minute. He didn’t like her. Never did. He didn’t trust her. And that day at his house was every indication that she was bad news and right now, his antennas were flagging “code red”. He still didn’t believe shit of what she said but, for peace sakes… He decided to let it be. There was no way she was going to see him with Bella again anymore so…
“Fine, whatever, thanks for stopping by” he sits down crossing his legs
“Oh Adams.” She laughs getting up, walking to his side.
‘Don’t be like that. I am sorry. Here, let’s shake on it and forget it ever happened. We are friends right.”
“We were never friends” he corrected.
“All through college and all. Don’t be mean”… she interjected
“Erm… Rebecca we were never friends. You were just another face in the crowd. That’s it. So stop famzing”… he pointed out. She felt like she had been stung but she recollected herself.
“Well…if you say so, I considered you as a friend and since you are my best friend’s husband. You are also my friend and all I want is the best for her and for you” she states
… I am the best for you Adams. Sophia is just a fleeting passing time and when I get her out, you would have just me. She smiles inwardly.
“Right. Look Rebecca. Thanks for coming by and truly, all is forgiven, but I have to get back to work so…”
He hoped she would leave.
“OK. Let’s shake on it, hug or something so I know you don’t hate me because I really feel bad and I told Sophia I was going to come apologise. And if you don’t accept I would feel like shit…and you really don’t want your wife to feel bad do you??
She was standing in front of him now. Her thighs visible and her cleavage almost baring all. Adams gets up, the sooner he was done with her the sooner she leaves.
He puts out his hand to shake her, she puts out her hand to shake him and when their hands almost touches, she pushes him to his chair and mounts him spreading her legs and forces her lips on his lip aggressively as though taking the bible verse “violence taketh it by force” to a whole new dimension.
At first shock… and then disgust and then anger. He pushes her away from his body standing up. He wipes his mouth..
“Are you fxxking crazy Rebecca. Are you crazy??” He fumes
“No. I am just fxxking crazy about you”.. She pushes him again to the table, grabbing his crotch and begins to grind her body and press her bosom towards him… licking his face and nibbling his earlobe. ..
“Gosh you smell so good”
Adams pushes her away again, moving away from the table, placing his hands in front of him stopping her from coming near him.
He was never trained to hit a woman, he never had. He never will but there were some exception to the rules and by God Rebecca was a temptation to break that rule.
“Get out!!” He hissed
“No Adams I won’t. Gosh I want you. I always have and always will. All through college I mopped at you. Grew warm thinking about you, followed you everywhere like a love sick puppy. All I wanted was you. I wrote you love poems, I slipped in nude pictures of myself to you….even though I didn’t put my face there but don’t you see. .. I love you Adams!”
She came forward. He moved back.
“Th… that was you? You were the one stalking me and leaving those nasty disgusting messages. You… the nudes? Oh wow!! This is unbelievable, and I always wondered who that was and I felt sorry for her. Throwing herself to a guy who obviously didn’t know who she was or cared. That was you? Now it makes a lot of sense. You need help Rebecca but unfortunately I can’t be the one to help you. Please ..leave. Now!!!” He pointed to the door.
“Yes Adams. It was me and I don’t regret it, But despite all I did you still went for her.. that plain Jane you call your wife, and you know she can’t give you what you want.. I mean, the $3x and tender love and care, baby I gat enough in my $3xy tank that can last you till eternity…” she points out slapping her lady area and pushing her breast upward
“What the fxxk is that supposed to mean”
His eyes grew dark. What the hell did she mean?
“Oh come off it. You know and I know, that you and Sophia haven’t been getting it on for a while. Well, up until recently… but I get it. I get it. That’s why you needed to go out there and get your groove on. But that’s okay, I forgive you but am here now, coming forward. Letting you know you can have me..I mean, all of me”
She touches and caresses her body, pressing her breast and sticking her hands into her panties as she raises up her dress to reveal matching red panty and bra..
“So there ain’t no need for her, and your plain Sophia Jane, of course. Plus I am one hell of a secret keeper. I mean look, I kept my feelings for you for years. Who knows what I could do….here, just have a taste, a taste of heaven and I promise I would take you to paradise” she closes the distance between them. He didn’t move.
“I can make you forget her. Forget your mistress and your wife, I can make you happy Adams. Here… let’s make magic together let’s make history. Right here, in your office. Take me Adams…I swear I am going crazy..” she wraps her arms around him. He didn’t stop her.
“You know you want me. I see that look in your eyes. That look of want, desire, raw undiluted desire… give into it baby. Just give into me and stop the fire within me from burning hot. Take me to the table and show me you are much more than a man with bones and flesh. Let me feel your steel.. I know its packing. I sneaked into the showers while you bathed after practice was enough for me to know. Well, plus Rebecca who wouldn’t shut up about how awesome you are in size and in act. Gosh I could literally die of jealousy. I want you Adams and I want you Now…” she teases as she kisses his jaw. He doesn’t stop her
“You are right, want you.. I want you so bad” he grabs her tightly and moves her to the table,
“Oh that’s it tiger. Grrrrrrrrrrr!!! ”
Once her back hits the table did she realise that his intention wasn’t noble… he presses her down away from him, his hands grabbing her both hands above her head and he stares down at her.
Rather he sneers.
“I love my wife Rebecca. Always have. Always will. I have never cheated on her before and I will never do, and even if I wanted to degrade myself to such ridiculous things and indulge and you were the only woman on earth. I rather take a lubricant, turn on some playboy shit and wank happily till I burst out my crème.
I would never …ever …never, not in this life time or the next ever get with you. Not even in my dreams and not in yours.
You call my wife, my queen, plain Jane? Damn… you have no idea what beauty is because she is the definition of it and even if she had broken teeth’s and limped. I would choose her over and over again…. ‘” He lets her go, steps back, adjusts his cloths. .
“Now, Bitch Get out!!” He spat snapping his fingers to the door.
She gets up from the table, boiling with refuelled anger. ..
“Oh Adams, you would have no choice than to want me because contrary to what you think we both know you are a womaniser and a serial fxxkster. So go on and praise your wife, I did see you in that hotel and I know the truth MR BELLA!”..
Shock washed over him. He stares sharply at her.
“Yes, Bella! That’s the alias you used right or that’s her name? So lie to your wife all you want,. Pretend. I know your type and sadly, i like your type so watch your back, because this girl is going to rain down stones hard. You might want to prepare yourself for a divorce. And make room for me.”
She carries her bag and leaves…
“Fxxk!!!” Adams mutters
He knew hell was empty and all the demons were here and one in particular had a name.
He had to get to Bella. This wasn’t good. This wasn’t good at all. He had to make also make sure Rebecca stays away from his wife so she doesn’t feed Sophia with this information.
“Damn you Rebecca. Damn you!!”..
******** Peter Hone’s Residence ****
“Bingo!!” Peter exclaims as he looks through the negatives he had washed into pictures ..
Adams with a beautiful slender tall woman, black hair going in and out of the hotel.
Adams and her, making out in the elevator.
She coming and leaving the hotel, her face was never ever turned to the camera, it was always blurred but she had a striking beautiful physical feature.
Adams coming and leaving the hotel and Adams kissing her in the restaurant in front of her door. Adams driving out a zoomed image of his plate number.
He picks his phone and dials, someone picks on the forth ring
“Hey buddy, what’s up? How you doing??” Peter askes
“Great dude. Sup??” The stranger offers
“Am good man, do me a favour will you? Really important.”
“Look dude, am done doing favours for you. The last time I almost got into a shit for you. No men.”
“C’mon. What how long have we been friends for? 15 years.. 20? Partners for 5years. I mean you can’t throw all that away, Plus you remember I did shit for you and covered your ass.” Peter pleas, a smirk at the corner of his mouth.
“That’s a long time ago men. That’s not cool. Plus now you are no longer in the force. You are a private investigator and you have no access to anything. ” he says
“That’s why I need you. C’mon and help a brother out. I promise this is the last time. I make it worth your while. Get you those tickets to the games next Saturday. You can come with your missy too”
“Yeah that’s what you said the last time. Fine, what you need?” He sighs
“I want you to run a plate number over your data base and do a cross identity on a image am sending to you now. I need to know where he has been for the past few hours, maybe under 24 hours if he went anywhere covered by satellite. Last checked in, and with who. Plus you can tap into the server and get me something. ”
“Right. Whose cheating husband are you trying to uncover this time, you ruining this for the dudes you know that’s un-loyal.”
“It’s all about the money baby, so am waiting. Thanks men!!!” Peter cuts the call and wait
Sophia sighs as she got back to her office.
This morning all she had done was trail her husband after he left for work. As soon as he got to his office she had slipped out of her car, and went to the security… asking questions. But all she got was good reports about her husband. She had also called Rose, his secretary and she seemed baffled over the questions she asked..
“Am sorry ma’am but I don’t know what you mean by does Adams have a female friend that he hangs around with or if he goes to see a lady or his appointments with who and why on a daily. .and about a woman? Mr Adams is a responsible and upright man ma’am. I don’t know what you mean”. She recollects Rose’s response.
Everyone thinks he is a saint but I know better.
“Why isn’t Rebecca replying my message?” She picks up her phone and dials. One time. Two time. .and third time and then..
“Hello Sophia, oh darling how are you?
“Finally!!! I would be good if you have news for me, please tell me”
“Patience my dear. Patience. ”
“But where have you been all morning.”
“Erm… I – I – I am sorry. I had gone to the supermarket and I forgotten my phone at home. So I didn’t get to read it.’ She lied.
Actually I was with your husband trying to seduce him but he turned me down. But like they say, you keep falling? You pick yourself up and try again.
“Okay but you haven’t answered me Rebecca”
“Sophia, brace yourself. I will have proof and I am bringing it to you soon. ”
Sophia’s sharp intake of breath made her smile, hopefully Peter Holmes would pull his magic and get her some solid proof to slap across Adams face. Well technically across Sophia’s face. Sophia divorces him and leaves, Adams might hate her for a while for causing his breakup with his wife but eventually he would come around and time is all that she had. Plenty of time and time heals all wounds. But she would be licking his up quicker.
Sophia’s heart constricts.
“Don’t worry, you would be fine. Baby, the sooner you find him out the better for you… when I get the information I am expecting. . I would come by yours”
“I have to go see the doctor by 4 with Adams. My headache and all… it’s a worry”
“Er… well, I would still stop by. Either ways, good or bad. I have to go. I will see you soon”
Sophia blinks, trying to bare the sting.
Her phone rings again almost immediately..
“Baby, how are you are you good. ?” Adams asks
“Yes baby… I am”.
She didn’t smile. Not even a crack. Her life might very well be over today or tomorrow. What did Rebecca mean, did she really find a proof. Was this one for real, Was she going to finally see her husband for who he is? Or maybe by a sheer streak of miracle, it’s all one big fat mistake, whoever they find might not be her husband. Mistaken identity. She had seen movies like that. Heard stories like that But what.. what if… her Adams, her sweet sweet Adams is just the lying cheating bastard. .. Oh God!!!
“So erm, is anything up. Like, hope you didn’t have any visitor or anybody or get any calls from a frie- I mean any body. I really need you to take some time and rest, go home and relax. Then later I come get you and we go see the doctor.” his voice breaks into her thoughts.
He was fishing. He knew it. He wondered if Rebecca had gotten to her yet.
“Why the 21 questions Adams?”… What’s with him? Wondering if I doubt you HUSBAND? She smirks inwardly. You have no idea.
“Nothing babe. How is your head, I am just worried about you please, go home. We can even cancel the doctor’s appointment till another day, I just need you to stop stressing you. In fact, put off your phones and drive home OK. So that no one calls to bug you”.
She raises an eyebrow. She wanted to protest but thought better not to. She did feel a slight headache coming up. And when she thought about it the ache began to rise increasing on her temple making her eyes twitch. She really didn’t stress herself today. But she felt really really…. beat.
“Fine. I would just go home and rest. But we are still going to the doctors. Come get me by 4pm okay.” She decided.
“Good. Okay. See you later baby. I love you” he accepts.
“Love you….Too” with reluctance and cuts the call, she grabs her bag and leaves, giving instructions to her secretary.
Her headache and twitching intensifies, She reaches her car, opens her door barely standing up straight. She rests on the wheels trying to calm her dizziness..
“Just a minute. Let me close my eyes for just a minuteeee-” she trails off as she closes her eyes… sleep taking over.
She wakes up with a start, looking around her. Puzzled and confused.
“What in the world. …!!! Crap this things just keep happening”
She starts her car and pulls away from the parking lot… and heads out.
His friend came through. Peter comes out of “The Enclave” and walks to the car. After he had gotten the information he needed from his friend at the police department he had followed the trail and it led him to this hotel.
Being a private investigator had its perks. He could flash his batch and gun, show off handcuffs and spew bullshits and People would scurry around not to be against the law and VIOLA!!! …
And in less than an hour, he got all that he needed.
The man Adams, and his mistress, and most importantly he got her face this time. The pictures were clear and define. Much clearer than the slightly blurry ones of the castle waters hotel
“Pretty lady. I would cheat too if she looked like that”
“Gaddamned!!! This dude is one lucky bastard!!!” he chuckles, bringing out his phone to dial.
“I have it just like taking candy from a baby. Where do we meet and wire me my money.”
“Oh… Shit for real??” Rebecca screams excitedly, one would think she just won a lottery.
“Okay. Meet me at their residence. I want her to see it same time I am. And I want him to be around too when Shit goes down. I am texting you right now, plus I am wiring your money too. Damn, I could kiss you right now”. Finally. Rebecca was pleased
Peter Holmes chuckles …
“I won’t kiss you even if you were the last chick on the planet” he says under his breath as he cuts the call driving out of the parking lot… he didn’t notice the other car pulling in.
Adams picks his phone on the first ring…
“Hey Mr W… I miss you. It’s being quiet all day. Can I see you for a minute? Plus, I had the craziest day, you wanna hear about it?” Bella purrs.., her sweet melodious voice slipping through the phone and caressing his libido
“Bella??” He swallows. She always had that effect on him. He checks his time, he still had a few hours before getting home to Sophia by 4pm to take her to the doctor for her appointment. He was glad she listened to him and went home.
And besides he needed to see Bella, talk things through with her. They needed to cool it off for a while, that’s If he had the mind to tell her. Maybe tomorrow, most definitely tomorrow. Today, he would just enjoy the warmth her body brings.
She asked when he remained quiet.
“Yes… I Am.” he smiles
An Hour later, he was drives into “The Enclave” he finds her in her room, waiting for him. He closes the door with a smile on his face. She walked up to him hugging him from behind, the way she used to. Bella knew how to make him feel wanted and soon they were singing melodies with their bodies and writing stories in the red silky sheets.
**** Later ****
Adams drives back to his office, His meeting was by 3pm. He had planted a kiss to Bella’s lips telling her he would see her later as she had followed him to the door and told him she was going to take a drive into town as he left . He hated leaving her alone, but he had no choice. For now, he had none.
He walked in just in time as the staffs filled the board room.
“Shall we begin??” He asked shaking the cobwebs of thoughts sitting down at the head of the chair. He had to rush the meeting, he needed to be home by 4pm for Sophia.
Rose wondered if she should tell him about the conversation she had with his wife, but she decided against it.
Whatever issues they had was really none of her business but she would hate to see anything go wrong with them. She sighs and settles in to the meeting.
Peter perched by the side of his car holding onto an envelope that had all the pictures of Adams and his mistress, waiting as Rebecca pulled up behind him. He had gotten to the address she gave him about a few minutes ago.
“You have it?” She asked, her eyes shining and excitement in her voice . He nodded.
“Give me!!” She reached for it, then she shakes her head “You know what, let’s go in together and meet her so she knows this investigation was legit and done by a professional so that bastard can’t lie his way out of it ”
She walks to the house and beckons him to follow.
“Whatever you say money talks bullshits works.” Peter follows her and waits as she knocks on a door.
“This people must be rolling in bucks” he whistles taking in the fine pristine environment and lush gardens.
“Yes, they are that’s the reason I need to be the new woman here”
She mutters under her breath.
“What?” He asked, having heard her say something.
“Nothing. Oh she is coming.”… Rebecca waited while Sophia begins to open her door.
A car pulls up right there and the occupant comes out. Striding towards them.
“Speak of the devil. The more the merrier!!!”
Rebecca chuckles as she turns to see who it was. Oh sweet Jesus. Thank you Oh, am so going to love this day. Yay!! She jumps mentally.
Sophia opens her door, sees Rebecca and gives her a weak smile. She was tired, confused and her head hurt like hell. She notices someone beside her and her eyes rested on him.
Peter turns back from looking at who just parked and rested his eyes on the beautiful lady that opened the door, he does a double take, his jaw drops open and he became speechless
Adams comes up behind them.
“What’s going on here?”
He asked staring from one to the other and finally resting on Rebecca.
His heart skipped and did the summersaults. He gulped.
“Shit is about to go down Adams, here Sophia”
She takes the envelop from the shocked peter and passes it to Sophia indicating for her to open it
“I just got you your proof!!” She stated.
“Who is the bitch now…BITCH!!” she did the attitude and gave it to Adams.
“You are about to get SERVED!!” she snickers wickedly as she makes an invincible basketball dunk.
You could literally hear a pin drop in the shocked and stretched silence …
To be continued.
Two hours later, Peter walks out of the hotel smiling
