Black Marriage – episode 9

black marriage episode 9

Andy changed his position on the be-d as he c@m£ awake. His eyes landed on the angelic form slee-ping on the be-d and his drowsiness vanished. Jessica had never looked more beautiful. She was more than he ever imagined, much more than any man would imagine. She had no clothes on and her only covering was the blanket that he had used to cover her from the night chill.
Ever since his father had left, he and Jessica had ba-rely left the room. They had been too preoccu-pied with themselves to even notice time. Andy never even thought of work for a second. They were like a newly wedded couple on their honeymoon which was so crazy about themselves. They had laughed and laughed about the pres£nt, never for once mentioning the past or the future. Jessica was always beautiful but watching her laugh made her look downright stunning and breathtaking. He wanted to make that happiness resident in her. Of everything that happened, Andy had been thrown speechless when he discovered that he was her first.

To imagine that Jessica would give him such a priceless gift has moved him beyond reason. The realization had shaken him to his very root and he made sure that that moment was special for Jessica too. As he watched her sleep, he felt the intense de-sire to protect her from harm. He knew almost nothing about the woman he married. He had felt that it was ok to know very little about her. ‘The less you know about a woman, the easier it makes it for you to forget her’ he had told himself. But he wanted to know Jessica. He wanted to know every single detail about her.
The only thing she had told him about her during this period of intim-acy was the mishap that happened to her family. He had watched with horror as tears sli-pped down her eyes as she told him the story. It was devastating that she had to pas-s throu-gh so much pain at a tender age.

Andy watched Jessie pu-ll up her knees like she was trying to shield herself and felt the de-ep urge to pu-ll her into his arms, make her feel safe. This time, he did not resist the urge; he pu-ll-ed her into his arms and was alarmed by the great delight he felt when she smuggled closer, burying her head in the fold of his shoulder. He k!$$£d her forehead and brushed away the hair pla-ying at her face. Andy yawned and finally went back to sleep.
Jessica had Andy’s hands around her when she woke up. She adjusted a bit and looked at Andy but he was still very much asleep. She smiled and t©uçhed his ba-re che-st with her f!ngerti-ps. The past day was the best day of her life. Andy had made her feel like a princess; like she was the best thing that could ever happen to any man. But…..
‘No… I would not think about it’ she thought. She refused to think about the fact that she had sle-pt with her fausse husband; her contract. Refused to think about the fact that she had surrendered the most precious gift she had to him also; but of all the men that Jessica had come across, none of them deserved it more than Andy, and maybe no one would ever deserve it more. But why did she do it? Why did she surrender her vir-ginity to someone who would become her ex – husband in a year? She sighed. Somewhere de-ep down, she had an answer for that question; somewhere in the innermost p@rt of her being she knew that she would never have gotten in the family way with Andy if she did not have some feelings for him.
Andy cleared his throat slightly and Jessie j£rked and looked at Andy who was now wi-de awake, staring at her. She smiled. “Good morning Drew”.
He was watching her now, ma-king her nervous. “Good morning sweetheart” he pushed his f!ngersthrou-gh her hair and smiled. He knew that she had been thinking but did not want to mention it. He did not want the talk of a contract to spoil the day. “Your skin is so beautiful” he murmured and Jessie blu-shed. “How was your night?”
She smiled. “I was able to sleep at the latter p@rt of the night”.
Andy chuckled. “Oh… what were you doing?” He raised his brow.
Jessie’s face reddened. “Should be what were ‘we’ doing”.
Andy laughed slightly, bent and k!$$£d her. “Should I show you or tell you what we were doing?”
Jessica frowned jokingly. “I think I know what we were doing so none”. They laughed and he k!$$£d her again, lingering this time to enjoy her sweet honeyed mouth.
“I am so hungry now” he remembered that they did not eat dinner.
“It is like I have not eaten for the past five decades”
Jessica murmured and Andy laughed.
“You are yet to see three decades”
“Yeah but I surely feel hungrier than that”
He smiled. “Let me fix us something, just relax here”
“Are you not going to work today” she half smiled.

He sat up. “Certain benefits come from owning your own company” he was gloriously n-ked when he stood up and Jessie’s mouth went dry as she stared at him. Andy noticed her eyes on him immediately he stood up and smiled as he pu-ll-ed on a trou-ser. He turned and she instantly averted her gaze. “You can stare at me honey” he grinned but it did not last long. “I certainly am enjoying the view.”
Jessica saw the hunger in his eyes and was alarmed when she looked at herself and saw that the blanket had sli-pped to her w@!st. She pu-ll-ed it up instantly and could not meet his eyes.
He laughed. “Don’t be shy with me honey; your b©dy can drive a man crazy”
“I wouldn’t want you to go crazy now, would I?” he laughed and left. Jessica instantly picked up her camisole and wore it. Andy had seen her entirely n-ked but that did not st©p her from being self conscious. She had always been conscious of ex-posing herself when someone was watching even if it was a woman. Her friends had helped her get over the feminine p@rt because more often than not, they had to dress up together for an occasion. Getting n-ked or half n-ked in front of a guy was totally alien. Even going half n-ked in front of a prying male doctor for scan had driven her crazy to the extent that she decided to change her doctor to a female doctor. Now that Andy had seen her n-kedness, she was almost sure that he was the only man that she would give that privilege to. The surprising p@rt was that she had actually wanted him to see her n-ked.

Putting on a flimsy short, she started folding the clothes that were littering the floor and straightening the be-dspre-ad. Andy entered with a wi-de tray filled with food.
“Woow” Andy murmured as he took in Jessica’s appearance.
“You look divine. What the hell entered you to make you dress the way you used to?”
She smiled faintly. “You have no idea. Bre-ad and eggs, I can eat this everyday” she changed the t©pic with a smile.
He placed the tray on the be-d and they both sat. They blessed the food and Jessica was about to dig in when she paused. “I did not even ask if you were good at this; cooking”
“Are you scared?” he grinned. He scooped up a sizeable amount of egg. “Find out yourself. Now, open your mouth”
“What? No, I…”
Andy pushed the food into her mouth as she spoke and her rebuke vanished as the egg tantalized her taste buds. “Wow”
“Yeah. There was a time when I wanted to be a chef”.
She smiled as she started eating. “Well, you are good. Ralph was the only guy I know that cooks”. Immediately she said it, she knew it was a mistake.
It was Andy’s turn to pause. “Who is Ralph?”
She cleared her throat. “My ex”
“Oh…” the food did not taste so interesting to him again.
“He left me at the altar”
Andy froze. “I didn’t get you.” She was silent. “You obviously did not mean what you just said”
“He was the reason I never wanted to get married again, the reason why I never wanted to catch any man’s fancy. He left me feeling stupid and disgraced at the altar on our wedding day”
“Oh my God” he held Jessie as she fought the tears that sprang up. “It is OK honey.”
“Oh, you are coming over… wonderful… I am expecting you” she said into her phone and hung up. It was the evening alre-ady and everything had been magical. She got to the sitting room and sat beside Andy who was listening to the news. He pu-ll-ed her against him.
“Where are you off to?” he asked.
“I nee-d to make my hair at the saloon. Sonia is coming over. She should be here in about two hours”
“Hope you won’t be staying long”
“No, just want to set my hair.” She stood up.

He took out his wallet to take out some money but she st©pped him. “I can manage Drew”
“Well, I don’t want you to manage” he gave her some money, much more than she would ever dream of using for her hair. She reluctantly took it, k!$$£d him and left.
One hour later, Andy was still in the sitting room. He had asked Ada to go for the day; he wanted to prepare dinner with his wife. He pu-ll-ed off his t©p and put it on the chair.
He heard the doorbell and went there, expecting to see Jess but when he opened the door, he saw someone else.
“Sonia”, he exclaimed. “It is good to see you. Come in” he murmured. She was earlier than Jessie had said she would be.
“Hello Andy” she cooed. “It is really good to see you”. She eyed Andy stylishly as he closed the door. “Where is my friend?”
“She is at the saloon. She should be here in a few minutes.”
He picked up his shi-t. “plea-se have your seat”
“Why don’t you leave it?” she asked.
“Leave what?”
“The shi-t” she held the shi-t in his hand. “You look so S-xy. I wonder what you saw in my S.U friend”.
“Excuse me?” Andy was sure he was not hearing properly.
She snatched the t©p in his hand and threw it. “I think you should leave” he murmured as she advanced towards him.
She adjusted her t©p until the larger p@rt of her che-st was left open.
“I can give you what my friend can’t give”
“Well, I don’t want it. plea-se leave before I haras-s you.”
Immediately he said this, she leapt on him, throwing him off balance. He fell on the chair with her on t©p of him.

“Bloody hell” he g@sped out. “Get off me” he roared but she would not bulge. He struggled and rose and turned until he was off the chair and she was sitting. She had her f!ngerslocked around his belt buckle and as he tried to re-move her hands, the door opened.
Jessica entered and g@sped…….
