Phone Sex Escape -28-

“What do you mean Johnathan is sending you to a hotel spa for the evening? Why? He never allows me to go anywhere like that,” I complain. It’s not fair that this woman walked in off the street, and she’s allowed everything I am not. I don’t understand what my husband is doing right now, but I’m scared because none of this is sitting right with me. 

“I don’t know. Johnathan said, pack a bag, and a limousine would pick me up for an early birthday gift,” Jamison squealed. 

“I don’t like this at all. It’s not fair,” I cried. At least I would have Maria tonight in case Johnathan was planning on killing me or something. She might be in love with him, but she would never allow him to harm me, well, I hope.

“Ms. Haven. Mr. Johnathan gave me the night off. He said to visit with my family for the night. Mr. St. Cloud also gave me money to take them all to dinner,” Maria said. “He never gave me anything, so this is a surprise,” added Maria.

It’s at that point that I know tonight will be the worst night of my life. Johnathan wants the house empty other than him and me. I know this means he is going to abuse me and or kill me. I don’t want to alarm the others, but I need to get out of the house before this all goes bad.

“Alright, but,” I said, stopping before I can elaborate on my fears and ruin their evenings. “Have a nice time. Both of you,” I added. I am shaking through my entire body, but I can’t give them a hint of my fears. 

I walked off, locking myself in my bedroom. After a quick check of my secret bank account, I find out that I have two thousand dollars saved. It’s more than I thought, but this is an expensive city. It won’t get me far. From between the mattress and box springs, I grab the knapsack I hid for this occasion. Stuffing it full of clothing, only the necessities, I hid it in my closet. As soon as Maria and Jamison go, I will slip from the apartment, and none of them will ever see me again. Not even my father. In my eyes, he is as guilty as my husband. He sold me off to a man who hates me. No loving father does something like that. 

“Ms. Haven. I am going now. My brother is here for me. I will be back tomorrow to make you breakfast,” Maria said. 

Following the sound of the voice, I found the other woman standing by the door with a huge smile. I can’t deny her this time with her family. I sometimes wish that I had that kind of reaction when I saw my father. “You have fun, and remember, don’t take shit from anyone,” I said. Hugging Maria tight, I held her in an embrace, knowing that I would never see her again. 

“Are you alright, Ms. Haven?” Maria asked, concerned. 

I nodded, using a fake assurance, “I am fine. I like you being here, is all. You have fun.” As Maria left, I swatted her playfully on the ass. She has quickly become so important to me, not only as a lover but also as a friend. I haven’t had friends since high school. I miss them a lot. 

No sooner had I closed the door than did Jamison walk out with three bags at her side. Jesus, she is only going for the night and needs that much clothing? It makes no sense, but then again, she is a spoiled little bitch who always gets her way. 

“My car is here. I gotta go,” Jamison laughed. 

I shrugged, looking at her. I have no feelings at all for that woman. She is going to take my place one day and get everything she deserves. I only wish I could be a fly on the wall and watch when she realizes just how horrible it is living with Johnathan. 

“Have fun,” I said. There was not the dread when Jamison walked out the door shaking her ass. 

I would usually love to be alone in the house, but I am scared standing against the door as it closed. I want to cry, but there is no time to waste. I have to get out of the house before Johnathan decides to come home from the office. Usually, he is home around 7 pm, and it’s only 4. I should have three hours to get out of the city. With two grand, that should be easy. 

Changing into a pair of jeans and a hoodie, I grabbed my bag and tossed it by the door. A pair of black sneakers on, and one last look around the place. Have you ever heard about those wives who set the house on fire when they leave for the last time? It’s taking all I have not to burn this bitch to the ground. No woman, not even Jamison, should endure the horror that these walls have written on them. 

“Shake it off, Haven. It’s not your problem anymore,” I whisper. 

Grabbing my bag, I pulled the door open, crying out the moment I saw him. It was the Devil himself, and he was there to collect his due. Looming in the doorway, a smirk on his face, Johnathan came home early. 

“Where are you going?” he asked.

I shook with a fear that tightened every muscle in my body. Did Johnathan know? Did someone tip him off to me leaving? “I am going to visit my father for the night. I wanted to give you the entire night with the house empty. You know, the peace you are always asking for,” I said.

Without a word, Johnathan took the bag and closed the door behind him. “I find it odd that you are visiting your father when he is out of town for the weekend. Thomas is on a golfing trip to Florida. You remember that right?” he asked. 

My heart broke at that moment. I felt the first tear scald my face, and the second one follows the path. “I didn’t know. I wanted some time alone,” I whispered.

With a grin on his face, Johnathan looked over, “Well, now you can keep me company and spend a relaxing evening at home with your loving husband. Aren’t you lucky that I came home early? We have all night together,” Johnathan laughed. 

I give up. There is no hope anymore. The Devil has won.
