"I'm not going to discuss this with you again!" Sam exclaimed and seconds later he heard his wife yell back at him through the phone.
"I'm sick of it, Sam! I'm your wife and you're not telling me anything! I have the right to know everything. But I don't even know where you are right now!"
Sam closed his eyes, trying to control his breathing but it was no use. He was too pissed at her.
"Well, currently I am at the office trying to work." He said, his voice calm but ice-cold as he spoke the words. Sam knew Adrianna hated it when he was talking like that and he braced himself for another verbal attack but to his surprise she ended the phone call without another word.
Sam hung up the phone, slamming the receiver a little too hard, and leaned back in his seat with a sigh. He ran a hand through his hair, starting to feel bad again.
He just had another ugly fight with his wife over the phone and he was pretty exhausted. He didn't mean to argue with her and usually he was an even-tempered and relaxed guy. He didn't explode over anything unimportant; macho-behaviour wasn't his style at all. He tried to achieve everything he wanted with patience and hard work and he only raised his voice when it was necessary.
But his wife made him act irrational and he didn't like it at all, he hated fighting with her. He felt like he had no control over himself anymore as soon as he stepped over the threshold of his house.
His wife was making him miserable but he felt responsible for her and tried to tell himself that they were just going through a phase. But that phase was already lasting a year.
Sam got up from behind his desk and started to pace his office. He tried to comprehend what triggered the difficulties between them and he realized that it all had started when she started working for another law firm almost a year ago. Ever since, a some sort of rivalry had formed between them.
Sam stopped in the middle of his office and shook his head at how ridiculous this was. But he came to the conclusion that a married couple shouldn't have the same profession, it would only cause trouble in the relationship.
His thoughts were interrupted by the ringing phone and he walked over to his desk to answer.
"Hello." He said wearily, not introducing himself.
"Wow. You're cheery this morning."
The minute he heard her voice he started smiling. "Hey Robin."
"You're lucky if your clients won't go for another lawyer. Are you always answering the phone like that? What's wrong?"
"Nothing. " He hated lying to her but he didn't want to unload on her like the last time. He didn't want to talk to Robin about his wife.
"Why are you calling?" He tried to change the subject.
"You are really charming, you know that?" Robin said sarcastically but wasn't intimidated by his attitude. "Do you wanna have lunch with me?"
Sam looked at his watch and realized that it was almost noon. "Sure, I'm done here. Are you on your lunch break already?"
"Yep, I'm standing outside of your firm building."
Sam couldn't help but chuckle. "Alright, I'll meet you downstairs." Sam hung up the phone and made his way out of the office, feeling a little better. Robin always managed to cheer him up.
He quickly made his way down the stairs and stepped outside into the bright sunlight, seeing Robin waiting outside. She was smiling as bright as the sun was shining and in that moment, he was more than thankful to have that woman in his life.
"Hi, where do you want to go?" He greeted and leaned down to kiss her softly, hiding how pissed he still was.
Robin broke the kiss and squinted her eyes at him. She was getting suspicious; usually Sam was more careful with those kind of things. Anyone could just walk by and see him with a woman who wasn't his wife.
She hadn't mistaken on the phone, something must have happened to make Sam act so careless. But she wasn't going to ask him about it, it was none of her business.
"Let's be spontaneous." She said instead. "We'll have lunch at the first diner that we pass, okay?"
"Okay." Sam answered and they started to walk down the street until they came to the first place that offered food. They walked inside, quickly found a vacant booth and ordered something to eat.
Robin was feeling quite uncomfortable because of Sam. His bad mood was radiating off of him even though he tried his best to hide it. Robin decided to ask him delicately what was going on as they waited for their food.
"So, Mondays are tough, right?" She asked with a crooked smile. Sam looked at her and realized that she knew that he was putting on an act but he didn't want to ruin her mood by telling her about his marital problems.
"I'm sorry, I know I'm not the best company today. I lost a client this morning, so today's not a lucky day for me." Sam lied to her without batting an eye; he was a lawyer after all.
"Oh, I'm sorry Sammy." Robin replied and took his hand in hers, squeezing it for comfort.
"It's okay." Sam said with a smile and brought her hand to his lips, planting a kiss on it.
"Well, here's another bad news. I have to cancel our date this weekend."
"But that's the only weekend I'm free this month." Sam replied. Sam's wife was gone for those two days, so it was the only opportunity to spend two days in a row together.
"Yeah, I know and I'm sorry. I promise, I'll make it up to you. It's just that something really important came up."
"Hey, I'm not mad. You have your reasons." Sam said and Robin looked surprised at him but didn't say anything. Any other man would've freaked if the lover canceled their arrangement, she was sure of it.
But not Sam. She sometimes had the feeling that their affair wasn't like a typical affair but rather a...relationship. Either way, it was wrong. That man was married and she knew she had to end their thing but she couldn't bring herself to do it. Her thoughts were interrupted by the waitress who brought their food.
Robin shook her head and tried to concentrate on her hamburger with fries and coffee but when she looked down on her tray she noticed something was missing. "Crap! She forgot to bring the coffee." Robin exclaimed.
"I'll go get it." Sam suggested immediately and Robin felt all warm inside. He was such a nice guy. Even though he was cheating on his wife.
"No, thanks. I'll go get it myself. You enjoy your..." She looked over at his tray and started grinning. "Camomile tea and salad."
"In my defence, I've already had too much coffee this morning."
"Of course, Mr Lawyer." Robin mocked playfully and gave him a quick kiss before she went over to the counter.
Sam's phone started to ring and he sighed annoyed when he saw his wife's number on the display.
"What's the matter?" He asked, trying to sound not too harsh. Thankfully, Robin wasn't in the vicinity.
"I'm so sorry for what happened earlier, I didn't mean to say all those things."
Sam's heart clenched in his chest hearing his wife's soft voice. She was obviously crying because quiet sobs were coming through the phone. Sam started to feel guilty. His wife was clearly worried and he was sitting at a diner with another woman who was also his lover.
"Forget about it, it's not a big deal." He tried to comfort her, ignoring his conscience.
"I don't want to fight with you all the time."
"I know, I don't want to fight with you, either." Sam replied and felt all the love he had left for her rise up again.
"You're not mad at me anymore?" She asked wearily.
Sam couldn't hold back a smile; she had sounded like a little girl. "I love you, Adrianna." Sam was shocked, hearing those significant words come out of his mouth. He hadn't said them in quite a while.
"I love you, too." Adrianna replied and Sam knew she was feeling better again.
"I'll be home around six and we'll talk about everything, okay?" Sam asked.
"Are we good?" Adrianna whispered through tears. "Of course, I'll see you tonight." Sam said and ended the phone call.
Robin finally got her coffee and started her way back. She reached the table right in time to hear Sam declaring his love to Adrianna and she stopped dead in her tracks. Suddenly, it hit her like a brick.
Sam had been so upset the whole day because he had had a fight with his wife, Robin realized. The story about losing a client was bullshit.
The fact that he had lied to her made her furious.
On the other hand, she was glad he didn't start talking about his wife like that one time a couple of months ago. He had gone on and on about their problems and Robin felt like the typical mistress out of a romance novel and didn't know how to react. It had been quite awkward and Sam also realized that it wasn't such a good idea to talk to his lover about his wife.
Sam, still deeply moved after the talk with his wife, looked up and froze when his eyes met Robin's. How much had she heard? He hoped it wasn't too much, he didn't want her to be uncomfortable.
"Hey, you got your coffee?" He asked, a little too enthusiastic.
"Yeah, but I'm afraid I won't get the time to drink it now." Robin replied, playing along, pretending she didn't see nor hear him talking on the phone.
"Is your break already over?" Sam asked, glad to see she seemed to be clueless.
"Yeah, Dean's expecting me back at the shop at one o'clock. If I show up five minutes later, he'll bite my head off."
"You guys are pressed for time right now?"
"We just got a few pretty wrecked cars in this morning, lots of work."
"Dean can be a pain." Sam said with a smile.
"Oh yeah, it's not nice having him around lately. Anyways, I gotta go."
"Wait, let me go with you." Sam suggested when Robin got up from her seat. Again, she looked surprised at him.
"Thanks, that's really nice of you but a bad idea. Dean will ask too many questions if I show up with you at the shop. I really do not have the nerve to deal with that."
"You win." Sam gave in; Robin was pretty convincing. Relieved that Sam didn't fight her on that like he usually would've, Robin kissed him one last time and left the diner to go back to work.
When Sam got home that night he was greeted by his remorseful wife. As soon as he walked through the front door, Adrianna came running into the hallway. She looked like she was about to cry and Sam went over and took her in his arms.
"I'm so sorry." She said, her voice muffled by Sam's shirt. "I'm a terrible person and an awful wife, you don't deserve to be talked to like that, I'm so so sorry."
Sam felt rather helpless. He pressed her closer to his body and stroked her hair, hoping it would make her feel better.
"Stop it, please. You're not an awful wife, don't talk like that."
She looked up at him and took a deep breath before saying the next words. "I know, I'm too jealous but I can't help it. The bare thought of you with another woman is driving me insane."
All of a sudden, guilt took a hold of him and Sam had trouble breathing. He had had no idea how jealous she was. He had thought she was acting that way because she just wanted to have control over him.
"You have nothing to worry about." He whispered and Adrianna leaned up to kiss him. It started out soft and gentle but soon Sam lost control and pressed his wife against the wall in the hallway and kissed her roughly.
It had been months since the last time they had been so close and Sam was surprised by his own reaction. Judging from the sounds that Adrianna was making she was enjoying it just as much.
Adrianna opened his shirt and ran her hands over his chest, bringing Sam back to reality.
He broke away and took her hands in his, stopping her actions. His breathing was ragged and his head was spinning, he wasn't sure what to do. But he knew he needed to know one thing.
"Are you sure?"
Adrianna raised her eyebrows in surprise. "Why are you asking? I love you Sam and I want to sleep with you."
"Really?" Sam asked back, he couldn't believe it. All this time he had thought his wife wasn't attracted to him anymore and didn't want to be close to him that way. But obviously he had been wrong.
"Yes, of course. It's just..." Adrianna interrupted herself, blushing a little. "It's been awhile, I'm not sure..."
"We'll take it slow, I promise. Come here." Sam said smiling and pulled her close to him again. He picked her up and carried her to the bedroom.
When Sam laid her gently down onto the bed, Adrianna started to feel nervous again. They'd never gone that long without sex and she had to admit that she was a little scared.
She was scared that it could turn into a disaster and make them realize that the special bond between them was gone. She was afraid of finding out that their marriage had come to an end and she was sure that sex would show it.
When Sam started to kiss and touch her, Adrianna stopped thinking. All her worries disappeared and she was only able to concentrate on Sam and the fire that started to slowly spread through her body.
Sam continued to kiss her slowly and soon Adrianna relaxed and took the initiative. She sat up and pulled her shirt over her head, revealing her perfectly rounded breasts in a black bra.
She wrapped her arms around Sam's neck and joined their lips again, kissing him eagerly this time. Sam worked her bra open, never breaking the kiss, and forced her gently to lay back down.
He covered every naked part of her chest with tiny kisses until Adrianna began to writhe beneath him and dig her nails in his shoulders. Sam quickly freed her from her jeans and panties to kiss further down her thighs but Adrianna made him stop.
Sam looked up at her confused, worried she might be uncomfortable. "What's the matter? You're okay?" He asked breathless, praying to God she wasn't going to ask him to stop.
He was too aroused, his length was straining painfully against his pants and he couldn't take it anymore.
"I changed my mind." Adrianna whispered and Sam's heartbeat almost stopped but he respected his wife's decision.
"Okay, we won't do anything if you're uncomfortable."
Adrianna smiled at his words. "That's not what I meant. I don't want to go slow. Please, Sam just take me already, I can't wait any longer."
Sam's heart started to race in his chest; he got rid of his pants and pinned Adrianna down. She was breathing heavily and looking at him with pleading eyes, her wet heat mere inches from his throbbing length.
Sam still had to make sure that she was okay though. "You sure, babe?"
Adrianna rolled her eyes playfully and gripped his shoulders tight. "Yes, please. You're killing me."
She raised her hips, encouraging him to go on and finally, Sam entered her with one thrust.
The next moment he let his body take control and focused on the sweet friction. It was almost too much to handle. Adrianna's breathy moans and the feel of her hot skin were clouding his mind.
Soon, he felt Adrianna shuddering underneath him and he allowed the hot fireball in his abdomen to finally explode.
Shortly after, Sam laid wide awake in the dark bedroom, listening to Adrianna quietly breathe in her sleep.
A strange feeling had crept over him and he couldn't shake it. He hated himself for cheating on his wife. When did he become one of those dicks that threw their marriage away without regret?
He had to end everything with Robin but he didn't want to. She understood him without many words, she made him laugh and she cared about him.
She was something special. He didn't want to lose her.
But he couldn't continue cheating on his wife, either. He couldn't have them both, he had to make up his mind. But what was the right decision?
A/N: I know I should be working on my other stories but I couldn't concentrate on them. I had to write this one first because I'd been too afraid that it would slip my mind otherwise lol. Anyways, I hope you like this new story. Thank you for reading and please, be kind and let me know what you think.
