Whether Lindiwe was making moves or not I was not sure because of the alcohol. Something was happening though and I was not blind to it. This is the uncomfortable truth of what it means to be a man or rather what we men think it is to be a man and something women might not want to hear. We call it the thrill of the chase or hunting and nothing beats the sensation. I can say it in so many different ways but nothing can ever quite describe it. A fundamental reason behind men cheating comes from when we think a woman is flirting with us. Whether married or not a flirt tends to garner a response not wife friendly. Even when you think that your man is so secure under you, do not underestimate the power of another woman flirting with him. When a woman is playing hard to get yet being overly suggestive you tend to notice and want to notice even more to make sure you were right in the first place. Our curiosity is heightened tenfold at this stage no matter who she is. Yes looks matter but the thought that you are going to play the game and win is often hard to resist. Lindiwe was suggestive without being obvious. She was a no go area for so many reasons but that was what made her intriguing. A month ago I had never cheated on my wife but now that I had kissed Khanyi I was about to cave in to temptation for a second woman. Its like that period of moral recklessness which most girls who have been in long relationships go into after they break up with a cheating boyfriend. You call yourself a fool for having been faithful for so long whilst he played you for a fool then allow two or three guys you would never had shagged to get their chance. Imagine falling from one guy landing into two or three in a short space of time!
I sat next to her and told her that the alcohol was getting to my head. She accused me of being a weak drinker something which I was actually proud of. Who wants to be hardcore drinker? Its embarrassing really and in this economy its a non starter. I reminded her that we had work to do for tomorrow and she said no as there had been a change of plans. She told me that the client we were. Seeing had postponed to the day after on account of an unforeseen emergency. That meant for tonight we could actually relax. I hear a lot of people saying they want to be lawyers. Well, it’s not as glamorous as you see on TV. Such free time therefore was a good thing.
I was not one for champagne so I asked if she minded if we or rather I ordered something more man friendly. She said that was a sexist thing to say but when I asked if she would consider Heineken she said it was not a lady drink. I am not sure if she was joking but she gave me the go ahead. She said she will stick to champagne. I noted that she did not actually seem to enjoy it but if there is one thing I have noticed is that when girls start working they often tend to move from bottles that comes in six packs to drinks they consider more refined. Men on the other hand we stick to what we know because our bodies are can handle it. What’s the use of making fool out of ourselves on things we don’t? I always say only a fool believes that alcohol will fix their problems and make them forget yet here I was trying to forget mine by drinking. My life was becoming too complicated.
Lindiwe who was clearly tipsy now started telling me about her life whilst she drank. If there is one thing alcohol is good for it loosens the tongue. She told me that she was actually a single mother, surprise surprise! Her baby daddy as we call them nowadays had left her the moment she broke the news. He came back 8months into the pregnancy and apologized wanting her back. She said that with the way he betrayed her she would never ever go back so not only did she say no to him but also she had made sure he never set eyes on his child. They had dated for about six months according to her and what was supposed to have been a burst condom had produced a child. Single mom. I did not see that one coming! I asked her why if it was an accident she had not used to morning after and she said she actually had and guess she was the one percent that slipped through the cracks! I asked if she knew where the father was and she said nope she did not and was not interested in finding out. She could raise her child on her own and did not need him. I am not sure how I felt about that because denying a child its father especially one who wants to see the child is for me just sad and pathetic! It was not my place.
I looked at my phone and I had no missed calls nor messages. Not even from Khanyi. This was very strange and I was not used to this. Lindiwe asked me to put my phone away because it was making me tense. She asked me what was going on but I was not about to open up about my wife and I fighting because she already called my wife insecure. There are some things you keep away from colleagues.
I stood up and went to the bathroom and when I came back she was playing music out of the TV. A song was playing and she was jumping up and down saying how this was her song. It really does not matter how old you are I guess this getting excited over how a song belongs to you. Its like how girls scream for absolutely no reason when they see each other at the mall in what is clearly fake excitement! Just greet the person and hug them, no need to screech like a badly serviced taxi! I just have to say though, the world owes the man that broke Beyonces heart dearly for all the heartbroken songs she has produced because whatever he did must have been profound. The woman can belt out an anti man song like no other. Imagine though for a moment what she will produce if JayZ ever breaks her heart! I swear it will be music history! The song was a slow song!
She asked if I could dance with her and at first I refused but she would not hear anything of it. In fact she jumped into my hands and started moving my hips with hers.
Its inevitable my manhood was pressed against a warm body, grinding on me in the name of dance and now standing fully at attention, begging to be released from the confines of my pants!

I have a guy who absolutely loves me and but I do not feel the same. At most we can be friends in my eyes but the guy won’t listen. He goes above and beyond to make sure I am catered for. All my friends think he is amazing. Even when I am in trouble he has become the first person I call because he never let’s me down. I feel guilty but if I don’t call him and he finds out he gets really upset. The irony is most guys I have dated have been total shit yet I loved them. Why can’t I fall for this one though?
