Just Keeps Getting Better -5
The Kept Man
Within a week of coming down
from the mountain, on their
camping trip, Jeremy was
moved into a townhouse
rented by Eva.
The rent was almost twice his
Deciding his clothing worn
and of poor quality she filled
the wardrobes and drawers
with the most expensive items
she could find.
Besides clothing he had an abundance of things he never knew he needed, which she kept buying and buying,
If Jeremy had 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.
Jeremy tolerated Eva 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 perfect and she pampered him.
She loved to touch him.
She gave him pedicures and foot massages, body massages, bathed him,

Jeremy never asked her for anything or to do anything. Especially not, anything connected to his person.

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.
