I walked home from the club and I found my feet taking me to the place I knew Mel had rented out when she left me. I didn’t know why, but I knew that if I was thinking about other women the way I was thinking about Gabby the other night…….I just wanted to make sure she was sure…The doorman let me in, I had been there once before and I made my way up to the penthouse that I had no idea how she was affording and knocked on the door. No answer. I figured maybe she was at some party or something but then I heard noises. The tv? Maybe she had fallen asleep on the couch? I knocked again but still there was no answer. I tried the door and it was surprisingly unlocked so I walked in. As I did it was more than clear that the noises coming from her place were not from the TV.
“Fu.ck……don’t stop.” My heart sunk. I should have just turned and walked out but I didn’t I walked straight into her bedroom…where a man’s head was between her legs.
“Melanie.” I said simply.
“Oh my…..Fu.ck!!!!!” she pushed the guy off the bed and pulled the sheet over her body.
“Fu.ck Melanie….what the hell? Who is this?” I glared at the man. I didn’t recognize him at least….
“That’s a good fu.cking question. I'm her husband.” I spat at him. “Who the fu.ck are you?!?!” Melanie ran her fingers through her hair.
“Coulter, what are you doing here?!?” I took a step closer to her and looked into her eyes.
“I came to talk about our marriage. Now you have a question to answer. Who the fu.ck is that?” I aksed, not even looking at him, just pointing. She just looked at him
“Um, Dario actually.” He said from the side and she groaned.
“Shu.t up.” She said through her teeth and I clenched my jaw.
“You don’t even fu.cking know his name?” I asked through my teeth. She just looked at me.
“What do you want me to say Coult?!” she asked. I shook my head.
“Nothing.” I spat. “I don’t expect you to say anything.” I paced the room and then looked over at her.”What the fu.ck is the matter with you?! I gave you everything!!! I would have given you ANYTHING! I WAS SO FUCKING IN LOVE WITH YOU MELANIE!!!!! What the fu.ck did I do to deserve this?!?”
“Coult….” She trailed off, her eyes wide. I never yelled. Never.
“Shut the FU.CK up!” I yelle.d “You and what’s-his-name, can rot in hell.” I pulled off my wedding ring and threw it in her face. “You wanted a divorce? You got one. But re-write the papers, because I'm not giving you a fu.cking thing.” I spat and started to walk out before the man spoke.
“Dude, settle down….” I widened my eyes and I don’t know what came over me….but I lost it. All I remember is my fist pounding into his face again and again, and then being dragged out by the building security…..and then the police. I sat in the cell, thinking about the shock on Melanie’s face and the look in that bas.tards eyes as I beat the sh.it out of him. My heart felt like it had just left my body. I didn’t fu.cking care about anything and…-
“Coulter Rourke?” I looked up from my cell.
“What?” I spat harshly.
“The charges against you have been dropped. You’re free to go.” I just looked at him blankly but then stood up.
“Um….okay….” I walked out to see Noah waiting outside. “Fu.ck.” I whispered under my breath.
“…..you almost beat a guy to death….that’s a change for you….” He said slowly, smirking wide.
“Shu.t up Noah.” I said shaking my head. “How did you even know I was here?”
“Honestly? Melanie called me. She sounded kind of worried.” He laughed and I looked over at him.
“How did you get the charges dropped?” I was ignoring the other part. Just hearing her name made me fu.cking pissed. Noah just grinned at me.
“I have my ways. Oh and you owe me a bunch of money.” I would have laughed if I wasn’t so fu.cking pissed.
“Thanks.” I said simply. He patted me on the back.
“What are friends for.” He grinned, looking kind of pleased with himself….or maybe with me. “So Melanie’s a bit.ch huh?”
“Who?” I asked darkly as I got into a cab. Noah grinned.
“This should be interesting.” He said to himself as I thought about it. Interesting? Eh. But things were definitely going to change.
