Just Keeps Getting Better-4

Updated on August 3, 2022

Painfully Familiar

For the next three months Jeremy Nunes was 'assigned' to Eva. He was literally at her twenty four hour / seven day service.

He was driving her all over the country. He took her everywhere, from shopping to dinners to meetings.

Although there were other chauffeurs she liked him the best so demanded him. As she was the third highest ranking officer in the corporation he was assigned to her unless one of the two senior figures demanded him.

That was a blessing.

Jeremy was unhappily aware Eva wanted to take their 'relationship' to a higher level. He wished she hated him. But the opposite was rather obviously true.

How she looked at him with that wolf's eye, what she spoke about, and the words she used; if she only wasn't so repulsive...

Yes, Eva had more money to play with than he had made or would make in his lifetime.

Yes, she was a member of a Class he would never join.

Yes, she belonged to a world he had seen on television and never considered real.

So he let her buy him things, take him places, introduce him to that world. Although
Jeremy knew what was going to happen.

He had an option; put in for his accrued vacation and disappear without a word, save to alert one of the other drivers to catch her eye. Tell another driver...for he saw the inevitability...

Yet Jeremy did nothing.

Jeremy let Eva control his time, day, week, month, and then, it happened.

How It Happened.

Eva wanted to go camping. Apparently in her home country she had been quite
the rustic type.

He had absolutely no desire to camp anywhere at any time with anyone. He never
made positive sounds when she spoke of this venture. He hoped his lack of interest would be enough to shut her up. He assumed she was not all that serious.

He had not believed until she told him to pick her up on Saturday morning and
drive to a particular Lodge where she had booked a room....adding that they would leave the car and hike up the mountain.


He made sounds, negative sounds but in her controlling voice she assured him that everything necessary had been purchased in doubles. Obviously, she was certain he would go with her.

He didn't want to go camping, especially with her... he knew what would happen before he reached the lodge.

The woman did not attract him. He didn't like anything about Eva. Not her appearance, her voice, not her thought processes....she was not attractive to him in any sense.


late that night,.. lying on his back outside of the tent, asking himself what in hell did he do..... while Eva was cooing about love.

She, who was streets and lanes beyond him in education, money, power, was
making proclamations of undying devotion.

She was talking about 'future' about how she was renting a house for 'them' , buying a car for them,... and he was lying there almost nauseous, unable to look at her thinking; it just keeps getting better.
