If I had to secure my relationship with Ali, I needed to correct some of my mistakes.
The biggest one which is Natalia, like she had promptly stated, she was an escape from the reality.
"Fancy!" Natalia exclaimed as she stepped into my office.
"Have a seat?"
"Thanks...I must say when your secretary called me this morning, saying you requested to see me in your office, I was quite nervous."
"A little," she let out a chuckle, taking a seat.
"Would you like anything to drink?"
"No," she smiled, "why do I feel like one of your business partners?" she jested.
Natalia always had this extraordinary humor with her, even in complex situations that was one thing I liked about her,
"Do you know why you are here?"
"No, but I'm hoping it's to pick up from where we left off, you left quite in a hurry last time," She bit her lips seductively.
"Far from it." I leaned closer to her, I could see the interest in her eyes as I approached her,
"What's wrong David?" It turned to worry.
"It's time we cut things off, " I said.
"I don't understand, David. Cut things off?" She seemed confused,
"You were right.....I was using you, and you deserve better."
"Bulshit!." she exclaimed sharply, "You know I don't care about all that, as long as I get to have you and spend time with you, that's more than for me.... Use me as much as you want."
I chuckled slightly,
"Natalia, you deserve better than that..."
"I love you, David and I know it wasn't part of the contract, you don't even have to love me back, just stay with me, that's all I ask."
Things weren't supposed to get this far, this was supposed to be a no strings attached sort of deal, and we were both to walk out if it was no longer working.
"I can't give you what you want." I said and return to my desk.
She followed me,
"What's that supposed to mean?"
I pulled out the contract termination papers,
"I don't need your damn money." she snapped,
"I need you to sign them," I move the papers to her.
"And, what are these?"
"Contract termination papers....I don't want there to be any sort of complications in the future."
"Wow!!!" She uttered, hurt and in disbelief.
"Is that what I was to you, a little piece of trash, you can hump and dump anytime you want, you piece of shit!!!" She raised her voice.
"I always knew you didn't love me, but I never imagined you could treat me this way, like some whore without feelings."
"Please..." I added,
"The new whore must be special, huh?" she smirked,
I clenched, muttering.
"Sign the contract....if you want money that can be arranged as well."
"I don't need your money, and don't worry your pretty ass. I don't kiss and tell," She spat and left.
