A Boyfriend’s Secret

David doesn’t think I know his secret, but I do. I caught on quite a while ago, actually. He’d go out, be gone for an hour or two, and then come home acting like a completely different person. Sometimes he was shy and nervous around me, sometimes he was cocky and overly-aggressive. He’d speak to me at times with foreign accents, or using words and phrases that he wouldn’t have normally used. Sometimes he’d come home wanting to fuck me senseless, and sometimes he would just lock himself alone in the bathroom for hours, seemingly fascinated with checking out his own body in the mirror. 

And then there was the fact that he all of the sudden had all of this “extra” money on hand that he could never tell me about. That was when it clicked for me. My boyfriend had been renting out his body for others to possess.

I’ve contemplated confronting him about it a couple of times now, but now that I know what’s going on, it’s actually been kind of fun playing along with it. I’m getting to see all of these different people using my boyfriend’s body in all kinds of different ways, with each new occupant giving him a completely different personality and sexual appetite. Besides, David’s been using all that extra money he’s been getting to buy me some nice things, pay for our holidays, and splurge on all kinds of fun stuff for the both of us. 

I suppose I’ll let him keep his little secret for the time being.

جان‎/jan/jān/jaan [jaan]
—  (noun) Jan/jaan is one of those specials words which lends itself across cultures and languages as a term of endearment and affection meaning, love, dear, heart, and life in East Asia. Arab/Persian: In Arabic, jan represents beloved one or dear. The Persian origins of this word mean life, equivalent to the Punjabi and Hindi definition. Calling a person your jaan, in comparison to the Arab and Persian culture, in South East Asian countries is an act of true love and intimiacy, and not used as liberally as the Persian connotation. Its true origins stem from Sanskrit. In Urdu you often refer to your lover and those your are close to as “meri jaan [meh-ree jaan],” also meaning my life, and my dear. It has a deeper emotional meaning than merely calling someone your love, or sweetheart; it is used in the essence of true love.
