An Indescribable Affair

"I'm torn between my family and you..." Harry said as he cradled his head in his hands and cried. He never cried, he couldn't even remember the last time he cried like this. Last time he cried like this, it was probably when his dad told him he was leaving, Harry was 7, he was now 23 and torn between his family and 19 year old Rene'e. Things were getting so complicated and this thing they had, it was never suppose to go this far. It was meant to be just a hook up and feelings got in the way.

4. The Fools

Rebecca:

I woke up when I heard Harry's phone go off, but he didn't move at all. "Harry..." I said quietly. He still laid motionlessly. I reached over and checked it, the name in the message said Renee. Who's Renee? I didn't want to read the message, but then I wanted to, but I knew I was gonna find something I didn't want to see. I turned the phone away for a minute and looked over at Harry who still laid there. I ran my fingers through my hair and then slid the slide bar across to view the message. 

I can't stand being without you. Are you mad about the fact that I'm 19? We never talked about it, baby. Meet me tomorrow at Starbucks. Sleep well, baby. Xx - Renne

He was cheating on me. I knew something was going on, but I didn't know it was this. I locked the phone and put his phone down on his end table. I laid back down and I was in shock as I laid there and thought about what I just read. How could he do this to me? I was his wife! I WAS HIS WIFE and he did this to me! I felt Harry's arm wrap around me. I looked back at him and watched him smile as his eyes fluttered. Seeing him smile made me smile a bit, maybe she texted the wrong person? That happens, right? I touched his arm and stroked it. He wouldn't do that to me, he loved me. Plus, Harry wouldn't get with someone so much younger. He never would. I closed my eyes as I smiled and tried to drift off into sleep. I heard Harry sigh peacefully, "Renee..." He called out. I opened my eyes and looked back. It was her, he was cheating on me. With someone so much younger than me. I moved Harry's arm off of me and got up. I walked into the bathroom and looked into the mirror and broke down. I hit the floor as my tears flowed down my cheeks. I was so angry yet so sad at the same time. I wanted to hurt him, but then I wanted to just fix it.I never thought I'd be the one to be cheated on, I never thought my marriage would fall apart.

 

...

I walked into Starbucks to find Renee. I wasn't going to make a scene or anything. I just wanted to talk to her about this. I waited at a table as I looked at my watch and looked up. She should be here anytime now. I rubbed my eyes, they were puffy and red from all the crying last night. I wish this was just a dream and that I would wake up. I didn't even know how long they have been going behind my back and seeing each other. I don't think I wanted to know, honestly. It would only make me even more angry and upset than I already am.

I looked up as I heard the door bell ring and saw a tiny little girl walk in. I assumed it was Renee. She was in a sweatshirt and a pair of skinny's. She looked like she had been crying, too. Her hair looked as though it wasn't messed with and her make up was lightly put. Looks as though we both had a rough night.

She ordered a coffee and sat down at the nearest table, she was waiting for my husband to arrive. Then the both of them can run off and do god knows what. I grabbed my purse and walked over to her table. She looked up at me and stared. "Renee?" I asked. She nodded as she rested her head in her hand. "You don't know me, but I know who you are," She looked at me with a confused look. She wasn't sure what was going on, really. "You've heard my name, probably. And we haven't even met." She narrowed her eyes at me. I sighed and smiled through my pain. "You're sleeping with my husband." I confronted her.

 

Renee:

"You're sleeping with my husband." My eyes widened as she confronted me about Harry and I. I didn't say anything, I tried to get up and leave, but she grabbed my arm. "No, please- please don't run. I'm not here to put you down, Renee." She said. How did she know my name? How did she find out? I sat back down slowly as I gulped. I couldn't imagine how ashamed I looked on the outside, because on the inside, I felt terrible. "Did- did Harry tell you?" I asked. She shook her head. "No, you texted him last night and I saw it." I looked away and felt even more like a terrible person. "And it might sound crazy, but he called your name out last night when he put his arms around me." I looked up and felt tears sting my eyes. "Rebecca, I didn't know he was married when I met him...he didn't tell me when we hooked up that night-" She interrupted me as I tried explaining myself "But even when you did know, you still had sex with him..." Tears appeared on her cheeks "We have a daughter, Renee, did he tell you that?" She added in as she sobbed. I didn't know he did- they did. I stared at her as I processed what she just said. I looked away with my mouth wide open.

"Rebecca- I- I didn't know you had a daughter..." I said with a cracked voice. I ruined a family..."He never told me you guys had a baby. If-" I covered my face and cried. "I'm sorry..." I said through the sobs. "It's hard to face the truth, Renee. Love is fragile and I want to make it work between him and I, but I can't hold on to my dreams as he's..." She looked away and paused. I sniffled as I looked over when I heard her pause. Her hand ran across her forehead and she tried to keep herself together. "Holding onto you." She cried harder. "My husband is in love with you, Renee. I knew something was up when he started smiling again." She grabbed her purse. I realized why she grabbed it when I looked out at the window. Harry had just arrived. I looked back over at her and she put on her sunglasses and hat. "Don't tell him I was here..." and she ran out. I pulled myself together as I wiped my tears and nose. Harry walked in and walked right past Rebecca and over to me. He smiled at me as his lips crushed into mine.

 

Harry:

I wasn't mad at the fact that Renee was 19, not at all. She texted me basically asking if I was last night. I was guessing that's why we were here, to talk about it.

I sat down as I grabbed a hold of her hand. She was about to say something when I stopped her. "Hold that thought, baby. I need to tell you that I don't care if you're 19...yeah, it young, but it's not wrong. It's kinda hot if you ask me..." I wiggled my eyebrows up and down at her. She didn't do anything. She just stared at me. I noticed it looked as though she had been crying. Her eyes were puffy and red. "What's wrong?" I asked as I gently rubbed my thumb over the back of her small hand. She just watched as I did and sighed. "When were you going to tell me you had a little girl with Rebecca, Harry? Don't tell me you forgot, because a baby is a big thing in your life. You didn't forget to tell me that..."

How the hell did she know about Darcy?

She looked at me as I thought of an answer to give her, but I didn't have one. She shook her head and scooted her chair back and yanked her arm out of my hand. She grabbed her bag and walked out of the coffee shop. I waited there for a minute. I didn't know what just happened. I looked back and saw her walking away down the sidewalk. I got up and ran out the door.

"RENEE!" I called out chasing her. She was ignoring me and wasn't turning around to look at me. I had no idea what was going on, but I know I just screwed it up with her...I tried to fix it, I wanted to...
