I don’t know how many times my good friends have warned me about, Marty. Saying, he’s been blabbing behind my back and spreading rumors here and there. But then I’m not a person who you can easily convince, I don’t go for he-said-she-said stuff. I would rather hear it from the source and settle issues with that person face to face. That’s just me and how I would handle such matter.
So here we are at a friends farewell party and nobody knew I was coming (except for Cee Cee). I was surprising my good friend, Ivan who’s moving back to Sweden in the next couple weeks. Cee Cee out of nowhere came and dragged me to the kitchen, telling me keep my voice down as we listen to someone’s conversation. I was totally surprised, I didn’t know who we’re listening to. But somehow, I was glad she brought me there. For finally, I caught Marty descanting one lie after another. I stood behind the refrigerator with Cee Cee and I heard everything he has to say about me. It was absolutely awful, and all lies to begin and end with. However, Marty was interrupted when he heard a common friend call out my name. And then he dashed off and locked himself in the bathroom. Truly, he didn’t have the balls to face me. I wonder why?
Two hours have passed and almost all the guest have left. Cee Cee and I were patiently waiting in her car (I hid mine a block away from Ivan’s house) for Marty to get out. I just couldn’t leave without confronting my ex-friend (that’s what he is now). I also wanted this gossiping to end, once and for all. And I wouldn’t be in peace, if I let the night pass without saying a word. And so, after ten minutes of waiting we saw Marty sneeking out thru the back door. But dumb fool, he parked his car a couple meters away from Cee Cee’s. And soon as he was about to get in his car, I showed myself and he was shocked in disbelief. He turned pale and was freaking nervous, that he couldn’t even put his key in.
“Oh dear, Marty. You can’t leave just yet, we have some unfinished business to attend.” I said to him. His eyes were wide open, “Please Nell, don’t hurt me!” I had all the plans of beating him up, but I didn’t. “And why would I do that, Marty? Do I look like a mob to you?” I said with a grin. Suddenly he got on his knees and said, “God, I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry! I won’t do it again.” Looks like someone’s guilty. “But we haven’t even discussed anything yet.” And here’s Cee Cee behind me laughing. She yelled out, “You are one piece of timid scum, Marty!” Obviously, he was scared as hell and almost peed in his pants. I felt sorry for the guy, so I just said to him, “Hey Marty, I’ll keep this talk short and simple, okay? If I ever hear you talk smack about me again. There will be no confrontations like this. I’d rather beat the living daylight out of you than talk garbage. Are we clear?” He nodded and then I turned my back. Marty quickly got in his car and drove off. Cee Cee and I gave each other a high five and went separate ways after.
Honestly, I was so close to wrestling Marty down if not for Cee Cee who talked me out of it. She told me to think a couple times before taking actions. But I swear, the next time he does that to me. I certainly wouldn’t mind teaching that fool a lesson. My two year Judo training would certainly come in handy. Hahahah!
