Just Keeps Getting Better -5

The Kept Man

Within a week of coming
down from the mountain,
Jeremy was moved into
a townhouse rented by
Eva.

Deciding his clothing worn
and of poor quality she filled
the wardrobes and drawers
with the most expensive she
could find.

Besides clothing he had an abundance of things he never knew he needed.

If he loved her, even a little, if he was attracted to her, even a little, it wouldn't
be so surreal.
But he did not.
He was not.
He tolerated her because she was very clean and didn't have unpleasant
body odor or breath. He couldn't stand to look at her because she was a
female version of the Pillsbury Dough-boy.

Eva virtually worshiped him.
To her eyes he was the most beautiful man she had ever seen.
To her eyes he was perfect and she pampered him.
She loved to touch him.
She gave him pedicures and foot massages, body massages, bathed him,
washed his hair, there was nothing she would not do for him.

Jeremy never asked her for anything or to do anything.

Odd Hopes

Jeremy hoped that somehow Eva would lose her fixation on him, let him go back
to crappy apartments and KFC.

At night, with the light off and his eyes closed he'd imagine she was some
Hollywood Celeb and be able to function.

Fortunately, with him being a Chauffeur and almost always on call he could get
away from Eva for hours at a time and drag in so tired he could barely make it
to bed.

Eva warned that no one was to know of their relationship. That suited him perfectly.

Sometimes he'd catch the eye of a pretty woman and do a touch of flirt,
but that was as far as it could go.
Eva paid the bills,
Eva set the agenda.

If only she looked halfway decent he'd be hopelessly in love.

He kept trying to plan how to get out of the relationship; and that's when she told
him she was pregnant.

It just keeps getting better.
