I sat in my living room in shook. The only noise came from the TV, which I could barely hear as the turn of events started to sink in. There was no way I could be married, especially to someone I knew for all of two days. Hell he wasn’t even that interested in me which was a good thing. If this was true all I have to do is find a way to contact him and get a divorce. As I pulled out my laptop, my phone buzzed.
Gina 9:56 pm
Did you make it home?
Me 9:57 pm
Yeah. I really need to talk to you and Ava about Vegas.
Gina 9:59 pm
You sound serious. We’ll be over in 10. That alright?
Me 10:02 pm
After throwing my phone back on the couch, I googled his name and the first thing I saw were multiple pictures of him to the right of my screen. He had his own Wikipedia page. As I got lost in scrolling through it, someone started knocking on my door.
I pulled the door open as Ava and Gina greeted me with worried expressions on their faces.
“What happened (Y/N/N)?”, Ava asked as she sat next to me on the couch, while Gina occupied the other side
“Is that who I think it is?”, Gina nearly yelled as she grabbed my laptop, “You slept with an actor!? That’s what you’re all worked up about?”
My eyes never left the document that sat on the coffee table. Ava leaned over and grabbed the paper that was causing all my trouble.
“Holy shit”, Ava looked over to me, panicked, “She’s married to Daveed”
“You’re what?”, she nearly yelled again, “How is that possible? We really shouldn’t have gone to that third bar”
I sighed as I leaned back on the couch. It grew quiet in my apartment again with the exception of my TV.
“What are you going to do?”, Ava questioned
“I don’t have his number, but I can try to message him through social media. If he even responds. I can’t believe I was this irresponsible”
“You can message him and in the meantime we’ll keep you company”, Ava reassured me, “It’s the least we can do after the day you’ve had”
“I love you guys”, I said as I took my laptop back from Gina, opening Daveed’s twitter
Me 10:40 pm
Hey Daveed. It’s (Y/N). We met in Vegas last week. Something happened the night we were together and it’s pretty urgent. Please get back to me as soon as you can.
I hit send and hoped he would respond quickly.
“Now we play the waiting game”, Gina sighed, “If I’m being honest, who the hell does he think he is?”
Ava and I both snapped out head in her direction.
“Gina”, she gasped
“No seriously. The night you two met, it seemed to me that he wanted to be with you. What did he not see in you? He can’t just lead you on like that then leave you hangin’ in the wind. You deserve so much better than that”, she groaned, “It’s his lose anyways”
“Very true”, Ava smiled, “He doesn’t even know what he’s missing”
We spent the rest of the night watching TV, eating, and talking about the latest office gossip. It felt good to have just the night with my best friends again. They always made me feel like everything was going to be alright, even when it most likely wouldn’t be.
When morning came, I pushed myself off the recliner and grabbed a blanket for Ava and Gina, who were knocked out together on the sofa. After taking a shower, I went to make breakfast for them. Almost halfway through, I could hear Ava trying to wake up Gina for the third time.
Eventually she muttered a, “Fine stay asleep then” and her footsteps grew closer to the kitchen.
“How’s it going Mrs. Diggs?”
I groaned and pretty soon we were both laughing as she grabbed some plates.
“Please don’t call me that. Ever”
“I see he hasn’t responded”, Ava said with much edge in her voice
“I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt. It’s only been a few hours since I sent it. Maybe he was working or he had a night out with Rafael and Adrienne”
“So you think he’s out with his friends again? Maybe this time he won’t wake up married to his second wife”
As soon as she said it, I averted my eyes. I know it was supposed to be a one night stand, but there was a part of me that really wished he would have called. The way he looked at me made me feel a way I hadn’t in a pretty long time.
“(Y/N)? I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to be so harsh. I just…”
When I turned to Ava, she was sitting at the table with her face in her hands, mumbling something I couldn’t understand.
“What’s wrong?”, I asked as I kneeled down in front of her
She slowly moved her hands, her eyes were glassy and full of sorrow, “I feel like this is my fault! You could have come home and just moved on, but now you have to go through all of this to–”
“It’s not your fault or Rafael’s. None of us were in the right state of mind that night. Daveed and I are grown ups. We decided to get drunk and now we have to deal with the consequences. Please don’t blame yourself. I will never blame you for this”
Her eyes widened as she stared down at me, “Are you sure?”
“Positive. I know you look after me like a big sister, but this one is on me”
We both smiled before we began to laughing. Silently we finished cooking and setting up the table. When it was all said and done, Gina finally made her way to the dining room.
“Morning y’all”, she grinned
“It’s about damn time”, I muttered, “I thought you planned on sleeping the day away”
Gina glared at the both of us as she started making her plate, “After the week we had, we all should’ve slept in. Greg has been making our lives a living hell”
We spent the rest of the morning and majority of the afternoon relaxing in my living room. I was glad they decided to stay for the weekend. It helped keep my mind off of the fact that I was married and Daveed still had not responded in spite of him being active on social media.
Wednesday rolled around and still no response. By then I started looking into lawyers to help handle this case as well as message Daveed a few more times.
As I walked out of the conference room with Gina, we couldn’t help but giggle with excitement. They loved our presentation and we were getting promoted. The best part was watching Greg’s face contort with embarrassment when they realized he was planning on us failing the entire time.
“It’s time to celebrate!”, Gina tried not to yell as she pulled me into a hug
“I can’t wait! We finally did it!”
Gina pulled away and straightened her clothes when someone cleared their throat from behind us. I quickly turned around and released a breath I didn’t even realize I was hiding.
“Hey Jeremy”, I said softly
Jeremy and I worked together on multiple projects together and became really good friends over my time here. He was always sweet to me, especially when he realized how much of dick our boss was when it came to Gina and I.
He smiled softly again, his dimples beginning to show, “Hey, (Y/N). Hi, Gina”
“Hey, Jeremy”, she eyed the both of us before a sly grin spread across her face, “We’re going out to celebrate tonight. Want to join us?”
“I was just coming over here to congratulate you two”, he stepped closer with his arm brushing against mine, “I would love to go out with you guys. If that’s alright with you darlin’”
I tried not a blush at the nickname he have me years ago. Hearing that in his southern drawl drove me crazy. I made a rule quite some time ago that I would never date my coworkers, but Jeremy could definitely be the exception.
A soft, “of course”, was all I could manage to get out
“Great”, he said as he began to grin, “Text me the details when you get the chance. I’ll see you around darlin”
He waved to Gina and walked back to his office. I stopped holding my breath and leaned against the wall.
“What the hell was that? I thought you didn’t have a thing for any of the people we worked with”, Gina shrieked
“I said I wouldn’t date them. I never said none of them were appealing to me”
She gave me a knowing smirk and shook her head, “Go for it (Y/N). He’s into you. You’re into him. What’s the worse that could happen?”
“She’s married”, Ava said as she walked out the conference room
“Shit”, we both muttered as we walked back to our office
We all sat in the booth trying to catch our breath after Jeremy finished telling his story.
“I can’t believe you actually said that”, Gina cried out
“It wasn’t supposed to come out that way, but he had it coming”
When we all calmed down, Jeremy leaned back into his seat and smiled at me. I returned it as he took my hand under the table.
“I’m glad you invited me out tonight”
“That was all Gina, not me”, I clarified
“So you didn’t want me to come out?”, he said pretending to be offended
“No”, I giggled, “I wanted you to come. I like spending time with you”
“I like spending time with you too”, he said as he gave my hand a soft squeeze
In my head, everything was planned out. I would meet with a lawyer sometime this week to get divorced whether Daveed wanted to respond or not. A part of me was extremely irritated that he never responded, but I was trying to remain calm about the entire situation. At some point, I would have to tell Jeremy if we continue on like this. Would he even understand? The women he likes accidentally got married and can’t find her husband. Yeah, that should blow over easy. Either way, pretty soon I’ll be a free woman and I won’t have to worry about this ordeal or have to face Daveed again hopefully.
The sooner I got it over with, the sooner I could put it behind me.
As Jeremy walked me up the steps, my stomach was still full of butterflies. We laughed the entire way to my house and he had yet to let go of my hand.
“Did you have a good time?”, he asked shyly
“Of course. I always have fun when you’re around”
Between the butterflies and blushing, I wasn’t thinking straight. I wanted to kiss him more than anything. I shouldn’t have waited so long to go out with Jeremy. Maybe if we started dating before the trip, I would never be in this position in the first place.
“We should try this again with just the two of us”, he smiled as we reached the top to the staircase
“It’s a date”, I giggled
He grinned at me and looked at my lips for only a second. The mood began to change as we inched closer to each other. Before our lips could touch, someone cleared their throat. We jumped back and Jeremy wrapped his arm around my waist before I lost my balance.
We both looked in the direction of the noise and my eyes widened. If it wasn’t for the shock, I would have screamed at him until my face turned blue.
“Umm, hey (Y/N)”, Daveed said nervously
This can’t be happening.
