Marty told me his wife was expecting a baby. Congrats would be in order if I wasn’t already his GIRLFRIEND. I mean I guess I was the sidechick but the were living in separate homes, barely speaking. They were legally separated, headed for divorce. She was a beautiful girl, younger than he, my age actually, I guess he has a type. When I met him he asked me to come move in with him so he could take care of me. I opted out of that arrangement but I did let him take care of me.
In the beginning I just figured he was like every other rich playboy i’d dealt with and never saw any real future with us. Who knew I could be so wrong and so right?
I fell hard for Marty the first night, I’m sure the private jet to the Beyonce concert just hours after meeting each other didn’t hurt but that’s not what got me. The gentleness in his eyes and sensitivity in his touch played a huge part. I knew he was a player but I couldn’t stop myself from falling for him. He booked us separate rooms at the Ritz that night, but mine was never occupied. I spent the first night passed out, fully clothed, in Marty’s bed while he slept on the couch. Not so much as a kiss.
