I jumped up from my bed as soon as I heard Honey Lips lightly knocked on the door. I usually lock all the doors after 9 p.m. He is back. He went to buy us dinner (KFC's Zingers and French Fries). As soon as I opened the door, he breathlessly said, "Here you go, hun. I can't believe she brought another man here."
"Who? What?", I was confused.
"Stupid Girl. I just met the man downstairs. I can't believe it", he answered, shaking his head.
Now you must be wondering who is Stupid Girl. Yes it's time for another dramatic story.
Okay. So Stupid Girl is about 19 years old but look older than me (I'm in my late 20s, for visualization's sake) and goes to high school. Her boyfriend is married and she doesn't mind Mr High Cock's marital status. Mr High Cock is renting the apartment on the floor below ours for $1800 per month. He pays for everything. Basically, Stupid Girl is a kept woman.
"That bitch! Mr. O told me about Stupid Girl seeing someone else but I couldn't believe it. Now I know for sure. I want to tell Mr. High Cock but --", he hissed. (Mr. O is a mutual friend of Honey Lips and Mr. High Cock.)
"Oh no! It's not your business. Do not get involved", I cut him off.
"Anyway Mr High Cock deserves it", I added.
"What?", Honey Lips shouted. "Are you crazy? The man put her in a rented apartment and is paying everything for her and now she's cheating on him."
"Huh? Stupid Girl is cheating on Mr. High Cock. So what? Mr. High Cock is cheating on his wife too. You disrespect one woman, you get disrespected by another. Period", I angrily exclaimed.
You realize that it's the start of a fight between Honey Lips and I?
"So you're saying it's alright for Stupid Girl to cheat on Mr. High Cock?", HL asked me.
"Well yes. He deserves it", I self-righteously bit back.
"You don't do that. When the man is paying your bills, you don't go behind his back with another man", he defensively argued. "You don't know about these things because you're inexperienced in this matter."
"What has my inexperience got to do with this?", I fumed. "He's getting what he deserves. Karma is a bitch."
"How can you say that? You didn't hear what I say? The man gave her a house, paying her bills and you think it's right for her to fuck someone else?", HL agitatedly asked. "It's like you're telling me two wrongs make a right."
"I never said she was right! But what do you expect from a woman who willingly entered into a relationship with a married man? I'm not surprised to hear she's cheating on her married lover. That's all", I lashed out.
And for the next 10 minutes, we fought (or debated as Honey Lips later corrected) back and forth over moral values, different cultures, deceptive women, chauvinist/sexist men, age gap etc. You get the gist right?
"Anyway, I don't care what you tell me. You have to get back to the 21st century. I may be inexperienced but I'm a woman. What's wrong if Stupid Girl is getting attention from someone else while Mr. High Cock is busy with the wifey? It's not like Mr. High Cock is doing good by the wifey", and I then let out a deep breath, and started getting ready for bed.
"You wouldn't understand. It's useless talking about it", Honey Lips gibed.
I disdainfully hmph-ed and went to my side of the bed.
"Come here", he opened his arms wide. "I love you. You're a decent woman", he cajoled.
"Huh, I'll prove your theory wrong. Ask any woman from my generation and they'll tell you the same thing", I pushed forward.
"Okay", he sighed.
"Goodnight", and I turned my attention towards the TV and fell asleep. With a vague thought, "I love him despite his sexist ass."
What's your take?
