The Spider In The Backyard: The Phone Call

As I drove home that night my head was whirling around thinking of what just took place. I was full of mixed emotions. On one hand I was overwhelmed with my desire for her and on the other hand I was overwhelmed with purgatory.

The next morning I awoke to get ready for work All during the day I daydreamed about her and was anxious to see her again that night. The day seemed to last forever. My mind was in a battle with itself. I would think of how I wanted her but I knew deep down inside by being with her greatly contradicted the way I was raised to believe. I would consciously push the thoughts of purgatory aside in favor of my desire. Damn God and damn everything that I’ve been taught. My desire was all that mattered.

As I got off work I raced to my car so I could get home. I couldn’t wait to see her. Once I got home I began to shed my clothes hurrying around so I could get cleaned up and get to the bingo hall. At this time I lived with my parents due to my divorce so I could get my feet back on the ground financially and avoiding them while trying to get ready was not an easy task. ‘Hi Honey’ my Mother said. ‘Hi’ I replied in passing. As I got out of the shower I heard the phone ring several times before my Mother finally answered it. ‘Hello,..Yes,...Just a moment’ I heard her say. I heard a knock on the bathroom door ‘The phone is for you’ she said. I thought it was odd that someone would be calling me here because hardly no one knew this number and I rarely received any phone calls. I cracked the bathroom door open because I had just gotten out of the shower and was still dripping wet. She handed the phone to me. ‘Hello’ I said. A mans voice replied ‘Is this Steve?’ My throat tightened as I said ‘Yes’. He went on to say ‘Well this is Maria’s husband Ray’. Instantly I thought to myself that how could she! She gave him that card!? He continued ‘I am not sure what is going on between the two of you but I send my wife to bingo to play not to make dates’. My head was trying to come up with a quick answer, ‘Well I am not trying to make a date with her, it was her birthday so I simply was being nice by giving her a birthday card and there is nothing between us, we are just friends’ I replied. Then there was a pause, ‘Well ok,.....just stay away from her’ as he hung up the phone.

A million things were going through my mind at that moment. I thought to myself why in the world did she give him that card? ‘Who was that?’ my Mother asked. ‘Oh it was just a friend’ I replied. I finished getting ready and now I was very anxious to get to the bingo hall to see if she was there and find out what the hell happened.
