Jesslyn awoke with a warm and fuzzy feeling inside. She dropped Jestin off at his aunt’s and returned home to begin breakfast for Brenden who had yet to arrive home. She couldn’t believe that she hadn’t heard from him but she wouldn’t waste anytime preparing for his arrival home. With wicked thoughts she decided to call and get an estimate of time for his arrival but he didn’t answer the phone. She didn’t worry, Jesslyn went to take a hot shower and prepare herself to give him all the love she had inside.
Jesslyn got out of her shower and began to lotion her body in her favorite fragrance lotion. Oddly enough she didn’t hear Brenden but she felt eyes on her back. She turned but saw no one, she called out for Brenden but received no response. She quickly finished oiling her body and slipped into t-shirt dress that she often wore around the house. After shaking the feeling she called for Brenden again but got no answer on his cell.
Jesslyn casually strolled into the kitchen when her phone. She quickly grabbed the phone hoping to hear Brenden on the other end. She answered with a swift ” Hello” only to hear static on the other end of the line. She hung up the phone only for it to ring again. This time she looked at the caller I.d. It wasn’t Brenden but an unknown phone number. She thought of the mysterious texter but she saved that phone number under the name weird. She answered thinking of the fact that Jestin was away from home and Brenden had yet to arrive home. She answer ” Hello!”, she again heard static and an unfamiliar voice saying ” My Love, I am here and I am coming for you”.
Jesslyn almost lost her sight as fear rushed into her bones. She looked around and saw no one but from her bedroom she heard glass shatter. She quickly turned but became horrified and shell shocked, her feet wouldn’t move. She saw a shadow, a figure, coming down the hallway. She didn’t think to fight or defend herself, her mind only screamed at her to run. Her body moved to the notion and she sprinted full speed through the back door of the kitchen- outside and down the drive way when she bumped into a solid figure. She felt hands grab her firmly to keep her from falling- Jesslyn screamed.
She could only hear her heart beat and blood rushing through her ears, her vision blurred with tears when she saw the form clearly. It was Brenden, he was startled and stared into the distance beyond her. Once his appraising look returned to her he wanted to know if she was okay ? Jesslyn sobbed until her body shook and from sheer panic and fear she blacked out.
After leaving his meeting later than normal he wondered what would Jesslyn say. He was so close to telling her the truth about the life that they live and what it is that he really does and where he spends every night in pure pleasure. This pleasure that was like a drug, this pleasure that had driven a wedge in-between his love for her. He wanted to let her know gently the truth about who he was and what he wanted. He wanted to tell her the truth about who she was and what this all meant for her.
She was the mother of his child and his friend but she was not his heart, she served a different purpose. She was a cover up to the monster and liar that he truly was. He had tipped around the subject since she freaked out about a mysterious text. He had his ideas about where the text came from and what it meant for her and for him. Brenden wanted to support her emotional state without doing to much damage to her psyche. He would tell her the truth tonight.
Before he knew it he was pulling into the drive way. He had thought his way home through red lights and stop signs, he was driving blindly. He pulled into the drive to see their home beautiful but still. He got out of his car and went to the mailbox. As he walked up the drive he sees Jesslyn dart out of the kitchen door, a shadow moving swift behind her- but came to a halt upon seeing him. She rammed into him, blinded with fear. He grabbed his wife and held her tight so that she wouldn’t fall. She screamed and scrambled to get away. He held her and called her name to calm her and reassure her he was not harming her. She looked into his face as if she had seen a ghost. He looked ahead at the figure in the shadows who turned and retreated to the house.
She sobbed until she blacked out -he carried her into their home resting her body on the bed. He made sure she was unharmed, but without moving his face from her he spoke saying- why are you still here- you are coming on to strong, you have horrified her and how do you expect her to accept you this way if you act like a crazed killer? A voice returned saying ” Our arrangement is final and cannot be broken, I am not the one she should fear- you know that better than anyone don’t you copper”? Brenden replied ” don’t use my name in that fashion here- are you going to harm her”? He received no response, he turned to find no one there. His eyes blazed with fire that could not be sated, yet the truth has to be revealed and write away…
