Whores & Wives [X]

Previously on Whores & Wives: I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX It’d been a week since the funeral and I still hadn’t returned to work. Instead, I saw the girls off to school, Derrick Michael off to work, and I climbed back in bed with the goal of remaining undisturbed. Except my … Continue reading Whores & Wives [X]

Whores & Wives [IX]

Previously on Whores & Wives: I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII This installment features characters from my other series, The Unexpected Proposition. Tune in to that story, here. It was eerily beautiful the morning of Carmen’s funeral. Everything went perfect, as if Carmen had a hand in directing it all. Barnard was cordial enough … Continue reading Whores & Wives [IX]

Whores & Wives [VIII]

Previously on Whores & Wives: I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII I hired childhood friend and sorority sister, Lisa Turner, as my attorney. She was one of the best in the business and I knew I could trust her with my secrets, attorney or not. We’d met for drinks earlier in the day and … Continue reading Whores & Wives [VIII]

Whores & Wives [VII]

“So, you're saying you...weren't...having an affair with Barnard?” “…I wasn’t.”  "...and your twin sister, whom you don't know, was?" "Yes...I know it sounds crazy, but it's true. I can give you here information and everything. You can even check with the hotel. We made such a scene, I know someone saw us."  "...I'll verify your story." I could tell she didn't believe a word I was saying. "But...in the meantime, maybe you can help me clear up something else."  I shifted in my seat and narrowed my eyes. I'd been here long enough and wasn't in the mood to play games.  "Look, whatever you need to know just ask. I have nothing to hide. I told you that." “Have you ever had an affair with Carmen?” “WHAT?" I sat up in my chair, "Why would you ask me that?” "Because I need to know" “You’re avoiding the question, have you…or have you not had an affair with Carmen?” “No.” “No, you’re not having an affair right now…or no you’ve never had an affair?” “We’ve never had an affair.” “Are you sure?” “Yes, I’m sure," I responded, indignant. "I think I know who I’ve been with.”  I stared her in the eye, attempting to sell my truth. She wasn't buying.  “Well, see…that’s where things get sticky. Maybe your memory has failed you?” She opened the folder on the table, pulled out several papers, and shoved them in my face.

Whores & Wives [VI]

“Open the door, Barnard.” I demanded, calmly, my eyes on still on the bimbo. “Amya, get away from my car, okay. All of this is your fault anyway. Just get the fuck away from my car!” He yelled and pushed me out the way. Startled by the push, and his comment, I stumbled and hit the ground. Barnard opened the driver’s side door and climbed inside. Pain shot through my arm when I pushed myself up off the ground, but didn’t have time to think about it. “What the hell do you mean this is my fault, Barnard? How do I have anything to do with any of this?” Barnard looked at me as if I were the crazy one. I could tell he was sincerely shocked by my statement, and that puzzled me even more. “You’re really going to act like I don’t know Mya?” He cocked his head to the side and threw me a quizzical look. “So…you’re still going to play this game, huh?” “What game?" I asked, enormously confused. "What are you talking about, Barnard?” “Are you fucking kidding me? You’re really serious right now, huh?” He put his hands on his head in amazement and let out a hysterical laugh. “You bitches been playing me from day one and you want to act like you don’t know?” “Playing you?” I was genuinely confused. “Barnard, why can’t you ever take responsibility for anything you’ve done …why is it always---” I was starting to sound like Derrick Michael when Barnard cut me off, his voice loud enough to wake the neighborhood. “So you really going to stand in my face and act like you’ve not been fucking my wife our entire marriage, Amya?”

Whores & Wives [V]

Previous Installments: I, II, III, IV I pulled into my driveway to find my husband waiting for me on the porch.  He stood, pacing; his cell phone in one hand and a coffee mug in the other. This wasn’t a good sign. When he was extremely pissed, he’d sit outside and sip a cup of … Continue reading Whores & Wives [V]

Whores & Wives [II]

Read the first installment here. “I can’t believe we’re sitting out here like idiots. Why can’t we wait in the lobby?” “BECAUSE, this is a boutique hotel; the lobby isn’t big enough that I’m sure we won’t be seen, and the bar is too far to see them come in.” We were staked out in … Continue reading Whores & Wives [II]

“You’re sleeping with my husband!” It was 9:42 AM on a Wednesday, and my best friend was screaming this most horrible accusation outside of my home. “I can’t believe you! You… dis…loyal… bitch!” She shouted while banging her fists against the heavy oak door. She hit with such force that I swore I felt the … Continue reading Whores & Wives by Trista Daniell
