"Yea, I'd fuck her. But with a bag over her head and shit." said Ryan before taking a sip of his cocktail. He and Byron were sitting at the same bar they sit at every night. Byron looked over at the woman being judged and said, "She's not that bad. But she'd seem like the kinda bitch that would call you every minute of the day after you fucked her one random night at an art gallery after party." Ryan giggled and looked into the crowd. "Where the fuck is Alex?"
Ryan, Byron and Alex were college students that had practically grown up together. They all met in elementary school, in the principals office, after having being bullied by the same bully. It was a bonding situation for the 3, and from that day on they stuck together like glue.
"Guys, guys! Here she is. I've been dying for the 3 of you to meet since I started dating this little treasure. It's never worked out. Ryan, Byron.... meet Adriana." By this time Byron and Ryan both had their jaw dropped and were squeezing each others backs as hard as they could. Alex wasn't the type to have a girlfriend. He never even had casual sex. He wasn't a bad looking guy at all, and in fact, he was the nicest out of the trio. But for some reason girls tend to go for the assholes and jerks instead, so Ryan and Byron were the ones that always had bombshell beauties at their side. Well, a different one each time, but bombshells nonetheless.
After stumbling on their words a couple of times, they all got through the introductions. Adriana was a beautiful young woman. She was very reserved and very classy and never showed too much emotion. Every now and then she'd crack a smile or whisper something in Alex's ear and make him giggle. Ryan and Byron were just amazed.
Alex started officially dating Adriana to the point where she was constantly at his apartment. Of course, he shared a 3 bedroom apartment with Ryan and Byron, so they got to know her pretty well too.
"I don't know what it is about him, Laney." said Adriana taking a sip of a cappuccino, sitting at this beautiful bar with her best friend Laney. "Ok, lets think this out. You said he's good in bed right?" Laney asked Adriana. A sudden smile came over Adriana's face as she responded with a giggle, "Are you fuckin kidding me? The kid could fuck all night if I were ever up to it".
"And is he, well you know, ... equipped?"
"Like a fuckin horse"
"And you are physically attracted to him right? Of course, as well as the fact you like him, right?"
"Laney, I don't know!He's great in bed, he's smart, he's handsome, he's everything a girl could ever look for in a guy! He makes me breakfast everymorning, he lets me watch what I want to watch on tv, even if he's watching the game. He likes to stay up and talk, drinking coffee on his balcony, under the fucking stars, and we never fucking fight, ever! I get so much room in this relationship. And he believes in me and supports me in every financial and career move I fucking make!" Adriana was starting to get frustrated. She had been looking for the smallest reason why she was having doubts about Alex. For some reason, she just couldn't find it. The guy was too nice.
This was the guy that girls talked about when they went to sleepovers in Middle School. You know, the tall, handsome, good kisser. And he had everything a woman would look for. But everything was too easy. Adriana couldn't help feeling there wasn't anything to fight for.
So she tried. She tried looking for conflict.
"Where were you?!". Adriana had gone to Alex's apartment early on Friday night so she could pretend she had been waiting for hours. "Baby, I thought our date was at 8," said Alex nervously looking at his watch. "But anyway, I went to buy you flowers". Great, just great Adriana thought. Damn it! About a week later, she was determined to get Alex angry so that she had an excuse to get away from their relationship. "I know, ahem, honey, that we have reservations at 9 but I have to go get my nails done. And there's this huge party that Laney is throwing tonight.... you know I have to go. She's looking for a sexy butler for the summer in the Hamptons. I've got to help her." Alex swallowed hard and responded, "Well ok baby. I mean, I wont ever make reservations again because you're being a little brat. But its fine, have fun at Laneys, I wont wait up for you." Adriana bit her lip. She felt guilty lying to him and purposely trying to hurt him. Most of the time she wasn't even sure what she was trying to accomplish. Why was he so great? Then, she started feeling like shit. Look at this, she thought, he is ready to give me the world AND he's great in bed, and I'm sitting here plotting on how to hurt the poor bastard? I really am a horrible person, he deserves so much better.
You'd think that after a mini epiphany like that, Adriana would have the balls to call Alex up and maturely end their romance. Instead, she only furthered the games. She played more and more, and they got worst and worst. She wasn't even making up excuses for herself anymore, because she liked hurting him. It made her feel in control and it made her feel naughty.
One day Alex called Adriana and left her a message, because she rarely picked up the phone anymore when the caller ID showed his number. The beep went, and Alex's voice came on., "Hey pumpkin, I've gotta go out of town for a week. I hope you feel better and get over that cold of yours." Adriana was giggling, and she took another hit of her cigarette."Ok well, I love you and i hope we can work all this out when I get back. I love you, I really do. I know we can get through this". Poor bastard, thought Adriana.
A few days after he left, her cell phone rang. It was Ryan, Alex's roomate. Adriana cleared her throat and made sure to answer with a "im so sexy I don't have to clear my throat voice". "Hey gorgeous. Listen, I know ALex is out of town and all, but Byron and I are having some people over, it's going to be a party. We wanted to invite you even though Alex isn't...." before he could finish the sentence Adriana jumped in. "I'll be there," and hung up.
She showed up at the apartment wearing a little tube top Gucci dress she got from a modeling shoot back when she used to model. She was stunning. You could tell venom dripped from her lips as she entered the room. All the men wanted her. All the women envied her. She bit her lip and thought, hm.... Ryan, or Byron? or both? The night progressed and Ryan approached her. "Hey cinderella, " he said as he licked his lip. She giggled shyly and looked up at him from her martini glass. "Hey there prince charming," she responded.
Of course, she went into Alex's room and Ryan followed. The sex was good, but only because it was so naughty. She didn't want to seem like a slut, so after the session she leaned over and whispered, "lets keep this between my vagina and your cock, ok cowboy?". He looked at her, with an intimidated look on his face and agreed.
A week later, the phone rings again. This time, its a blocked number.
"Hello, Adriana speaking"
"Hey, its Alex"
"Oh hey, how was your trip"
"Look, Addy, I know."
"You know what?"
"That you fucked Ryan on my bed"
"What are you talking about, your so insecure. You are gone for a week, and you think I'd do that to you? You think Ryan would do that to you?"
There was silence. For a second she thought he had hung up.
"Look Adriana, I told them to have a party. I told Ryan to invite you. I told him to make a move on you and I told him that if you didn't push him away, he could fuck you like the slut you are"
