Minor things, my dear. At least that's what he said.
I didn't want to talk to him. I didn't know him. A female friend simply while being drunk told him about me. ''She s the Meanest Bitch that exists. You'll never meet anyone like her. She simply doesn't submit to anyone.''
He insisted. I told him to fuck off.
Then she told me ''Talk to him please, do it as a favor to me
He starting babbling about how beautiful I am, being all romantic and stupid. I ditched him and was mean to him.
He insisted more. Talked about books, life, women.
He was very polite so the conversation continued. Well he talked and talked I just listened.
Then all of a sudden he simply said it
''I was for many years in jail. I did a few illegal things.
Don't be afraid of me. I really like you.''
I got mean. In prison for what?
-I suspect those things aren't minor
''They are not. But it's not murder. Or rape. Or anything violent.''
-Why should I even talk to a criminal?
''Maybe cause he has something to say? ''
Him babbling and babbling about changing into a better man. I so didn't buy it. But I didn't care. I didn't give a fuck about this guy.
Until one night.
I got drunk on absinthe. Badly.
I wanted my brain to stop thinking. I wanted the world to shut down.
Maybe I was hurt or maybe I wanted to remember who I really was.
The phone rang. Unknown number.
-Who is this?
''You know who my dear
-Excuse me? Who the fuck gave you my number?
''Don't blame her. Blame me.
-Oh right. What the fuck do you want ?
''You. Would that be indecent?
-Very. And stupid also.
''I can be stupid also.
-You already are.
''I sense you are not OK. Is something wrong?
-I'm drunk and happy why do you care stupid boy?
''Excuse me? What did you call me?
-Stupid pathetic boy. Desperate. Calling me. Doing everything to gain my attention. I bet if you were in front of me now you would do everything. Wouldn't you. You know what I want you to do. To get in your knees and beg to lick me. Or better. Bark, like the dog you are.
'Hmm. Is that what you want? Silly girl, I'm gonna come after you for this. I'm still involved with many dangerous people . They can find out where you live, where you work. I'll be there. Right behind you. And put you in your knees. With a pistol pointed at your head. You'll be mine and I'm gonna use you how I please. You've just provoked it.''
-Is that it? Should I be afraid? Of your mafia bullshit?
''You should. I am coming after you. Start counting the days.
-HAHA. How intriguing . Little boy is insulted. I'm loving it. And how do you think I'll react with a gun pointed at my head, stupid?
'' You''ll be forced to let yourself get abused''
-Oh that s the woman you think I am? That any man can abuse me just cause.. he s a man? Funny.
''You prefer to be dead?''
-I don't fear death you goon. And I'm not the type to die on my knees.
So you'll have to kill me first. While looking at me straight in the eyes.
''I've never imagined you'd be this crazy. You really want to die than be mine? I would love.. someone like you. Knowing that you're crazy only makes me want you more.''
-Spare me the romance. It's silly. I don't want you neither do I fear you.
'' That's surprising. Most did. Maybe if you'd have met me live...
-Dream on. I don't care. I don't fear you, death, satan, pain, life, anything. It's who I am.
''Then be my equal. I'll give you everything. Money, cars, we could travel the world. I've always wanted someone like you. Let's make everybody jealous. ''
-Dating a criminal is not my idea of a fun time or good life.
''Not even a rich one that adores you without never meeting you even?''
-Not even that.
''But why. What do you want from life? You're clearly not the woman that becomes a mom, and cleans dishes . You're more like that Lady with long nails that is demanding and has the world at her feet. And I could give you that and more. ''
-I don't want you to give me the world. The world is already mine.
''Alone? No one can live alone. Like that. Or be strong alone. What's your purpose?
-To be me, strong , free, powerful and nothing but that.
Something you can't understand because you had women allowing you to put them in their knees
''It's not like they didn't enjoy that...''
-I know. But I'm not like that. In case that's not already clear
HE tried to talk to me afterwards. For months. I've always been sarcastic and cold and pushed him away telling him he's not wanted.
Up until my birthday when I get these desperate messages from my female friend ''He tried to call you like for 10 times and you didn't answer. He wanted to wish you a happy birthday and send you a gift but you didn't answer. He's hurt.
-Of course he is. Silly boy.
