Passion Overseas

By: Jennifer Fielding & J A Fielding

“Probably? Try most definitely,” she said. She looked at him and rolled her eyes for the umpteenth time. “Why am I here, Eli? And answer knowing that the homicidal thoughts I was talking about earlier, are almost in full swing right now,” she added.

“Clearly you are not the same wonderfully friendly person I once knew,” he said. She shrugged as the waiter came back with their order. She looked up at the waiter and smiled in gratitude. Eli was surprised that the same person who had talked about homicide just minutes earlier was actually capable of smiling. The smile faded almost as immediately as it had appeared when the waiter walked away. She took a sip of her latte and then took a bite of her cake. Eli couldn’t help but wonder if she was thinking of using the fork she had in her hand as a weapon. “I know that you probably don’t want to hear anything I have to say but the truth is that I have to make things right with your sister and this is the only way I know how,” he started. Emily was staring daggers at him as she took another bite. “You know, the whole thing that went down with me and Erica…” he started before she put her hand up.

“You mean the cheating? Is that what you are going on about?”

“You don’t have to put it so bluntly,” he said in a low voice as he looked around to make sure no one had heard her.

“Well, that’s what happened, right? You just decided to go out and fuck someone else who wasn’t your girlfriend. My sister!” she was now talking in a hushed whisper. She wanted nothing more than to throw her scalding hot latte at his face.

“Emily I am really sorry but you have to understand one thing, I never, ever meant to hurt Erica, or you,” he said as he looked at her. “I never wanted to have an affair…”

“And yet you did,” Emily was now sipping on her latte as she looked at him over the rim of her cup. She put her cup down and shrugged. “I honestly don’t know what the hell we are doing here, Eli. And as soon as I am done with this delicious fresh cream red velvet slice, so are we,” she added as she took another bite. He looked at her and took a long deep breath.

“I need to see her. I need to talk to Erica, Em,” Eli said and Emily laughed. It was a long cynical laugh that almost seemed unreal. Eli looked at her as she leaned back in her chair and shook her head.

“You have got to be fucking kidding me, right?” she asked as she looked at him.

“What do you mean?” he asked.

“And you are still asking these idiotic questions,” she said as she shook her head. “Listen, jackass. When you hooked up with my sister, I thought, great. She found someone who is just wonderful but then you had to go out and be like the next guy in a bad Tyler Perry movie. And honestly, it took all of me not to march over to your place and shoot you right between the eyes but right now, this thing you are trying to do is definitely going to be the end of me because so help me God, Eli, I will kill you if you so much as say her name one more fucking time,” she said before she took another bite of her cake.

“But I feel like I need closure,” Eli sighed. She raised an eyebrow and glared at him.

“Closure? Really? Are you the one who walked in on her with some stranger’s balls hanging out of her? Fucking no! She walked in on you humping the living daylights out of a stranger’s vagina. She is the one who needs closure Eli not you,” she said almost too annoyed. She could feel her blood pressure rising.

“But…” he started, a faraway look in his eyes as if he was trying to make up what he was saying as he went on.

“Damn it! Eli,” she said banging her hands on the table causing a scene even though she didn’t want to. “It has been so long since your stupid…whatever and honestly you have no right to anything, really. No right to talk to her, to even think of her or even the right to fucking closure. She is over you. She has moved on and I suggest you do the same,” she said as she pushed her seat back.

“Wait, what? She’s moved on? Already? But where…I’ve been trying…where is she?” he was struggling to get the words out but she was already walking away. “Emily…please, I need to know. Where is she?” he asked as he ran up to her. Emily turned around and looked at him. She was exhausted just standing there looking at him.
