HereWeGoAgainff: Chapter 4
I heard the front door alarm sound off and that was sign that Aston was home. It was almost six and I knew that she would make it home around this time so that’s why I made sure that Donovan was upstairs preoccupied in his room. I heard her heels click on the floor until the came to an abrupt stop. I knew she was surprised to see me on here.
“You ready to talk?”
“I just go in the door. Let me get settled before you start bitchin‘ at me.”
“You‘ve been standing here for about two minutes. You look pretty settled to me.” I said as I got up to face her.
Yeah, I was still pissed about earlier but I’ve had some time to think. But it seems like the more I thought about it, I became more pissed.
“Okay. You wanna argue. Fine, lets argue.”
“Nah. We not gon‘ argue. I‘m gonna talk and your gonna listen. Now here it is; you‘re gonna quit that job and that‘s final.”
She looked at me as if I was crazy but I was dead serious. I wasn’t about to have my fiancé workin’ for that nigga casue I aint trust him. And Aston is just dingy as fuck so she wouldn’t know if he was hittin or her or being nice.
“What? I am not quitting my job.”
“Yes you are.”
“Where is this coming from? What made you come to this conclusion?”
“Where is this coming from?” I asked incredulously.
“Aston, this nigga was clearly all up in your face today and then he had to nerve to belittle me. I don’t like that, nor do I like him so you‘re quitting.” I said finally and walked away.
“Dominic, you‘re acting like a fucking child!”
“No!” I said while turning around.
“You‘re acting like a fucking hoe letting this nigga that close to you.”
“Wow, so that really makes me a hoe? You‘re unbelievable. And now you see why I don’t tell you shit because of shit like this! You do the fucking most for no reason.”
“So I see this nigga all up on you and then this nigga disrespects me, and I‘m doing the most? Okay, that‘s fine. But you‘re quitting and that‘s final.”
“And if I don’t?” she challenged, folding her arms over her chest.
I was sorta taken back. I dimmed my eyes at her and challenged her back.
“Try me, Aston. I want you too.”
With that I walked away and headed out the door.
“I don’t know, man. I‘m just feelin‘ some type of way. It‘s like she‘s been hella sneaky lately, then I go to her job to see this nigga.”
“Maybe you‘re overreacting.” Cease said as he took a swig of his beer. Me and Cease were chillin, havin a beer at the bar. I really wanted to get fucked up right now because my mind was all over the place but I knew all I needed was a beer or two to calm my nerves.
“How am I overacting, man? You aint see how this nigga was lookin‘ at her man. It was like she was a piece of meat to him and she was just eatin‘ that shit up, Cease. I walk in and she laughin‘ and giggling‘ like a fucking little girl.”
“Maybe she just like the attention. You know women like attention.”
“What? I give Aston enough damn attention.” I huffed and took a sip of my beer.
“Shit, I damn near worship her.” I mumbled to myself.
“But it aint the same. I mean, how long you been with Aston? Some years right?”
“Okay, I mean some attention from somebody else is refreshing for her.”
“She don’t need to be no damn refreshed. Look, whatever the fuck it is, it needs to be stopped. So, I told her that she needed to quit her job.”
“Damn, man. What she say?”
I sucked my teeth.
“She had to nerve to tell me no.”
Cease looked at me for a second and then started laughing.
“Nigga, you are controlling.”
I gave him a look and he just laughed even harder. I think this nigga had too many beers. I aint controlling. He can go up the street with that shit.
“Nigga, I aint no damn controlling. I just don’t want her working with a nigga. I know what that nigga want and he can‘t have it.”
“And that is?”
“And you so sure, huh? Tell me Dom, when was the last time you got some?”
I literally had to think about it ‘cause it’s been a minute. And it was kind of odd cause me and Aston always fucked. On a regular.
“Nah, nigga. You had to think about it that means it’s been some time.”
“It has.” I sighed, “That‘s probably why my ass so stressed out. ”
“Well, I got an idea. Look, usually women don’t fuck different men at the same time. It‘s rare, but usually it doesn’t happen. So if she aint fucking you, maybe she fucking somebody else.”
Instantly my jaw started to clench and I could feel myself getting heated.
“ I know Aston aint cheatin on you nigga. But, maybe you should give her the test.”
“Okay, so tonight try to get it in. and if she turn you down and use some lame excuse like she got a headache then you have something to worry about.”
I was already in bed and Aston was just now getting in. She had not talked to me since I came back from the bar with Cease. I knew she was mad and I was low-key mad too. But I just wanted all of this to end.
“Baby, I‘m sorry about earlier and maybe I overreacted.” I said as soon as she got under the covers.
“You did Dom. You did overreact.”
“Okay,” I said as I put my hands up. “I did and I‘m sorry. You don’t have to quit your job its just sometimes… Aston you just gotta be careful. Niggas out here are grimy and they‘ll do anything to get at you. Even if you got a man, they don’t care.”
“Dom, my boss is not tryna get with me. He‘s just…nice, which I appreciate. It‘s nothing going on and nothing is ever gonna happen. You just gotta trust me. I trust you. ” she said looking at me sincerely.
She was right though. She trusted me. A little too much sometimes. Aston didn’t have a problem with me going to clubs or anything like that. When women would deliberately flirt with me in front of me she never said anything about it. I was always the one shutting bitches down. She was too confident to concern about other bitches.
“I trust you, Aston. I just don’t trust him. But it‘s all good. If he ever get out of line, let me know.”
She nodded then smiled before kissing me.
I deepened the kiss and ran my hands over her body. Just as I was about to lay her back she slightly pushed me away.
“What?” I asked.
“Not tonight okay. I‘m not in the mood. I have a slight headache.”
With that she turned around and got comfortable in the bed.
Well, aint this some shit.
