“Remember you? Of course, I remember you, Paul. How can I forget? You fucked my mom,” Arora answers with a laugh.
“Y-Yeah, that’s me,” I nervously say while lying down on my bed again.
“So, you actually decided to call me, huh? I thought you will chicken out. Consider me impressed,” She says, sounding genuinely amazed.
“Why would I chicken out?” I ask with a frown.
“You are having a love affair with my mother and still asking me this? Well, for once, I might be plotting something against you for trying to break my family up. And who knows? This call might get you in trouble,” she says in a light voice.
“G-Get me in trouble? How?” I ask fearfully.
“How do you know that I am not standing next to my father right now, huh? Maybe he’s just waiting for his turn to give you a piece of his mind,” she says, laughing again.
“But your father’s not there, right?” I ask, a small relieved smile forming on my face as well.
“How can you be sure of that, huh?” She asks.
“Because this makes no sense. Why would you want me to talk to your father on the phone? I can simply cancel the call whenever I like. No, you would have tried to invite me somewhere outside to meet him,” I answer simply.
“Hmm… Clever. That does make more sense. Well, I was just trying to mess with you a little so, I never gave this a serious thought. Anyway, just to be clear, I am not trying to get you in trouble, okay?” She says.
“Well, thanks for that. But why did you asked me to call you?” I ask, getting on topic.
“Because I have a request for you. And believe me, you are not going to have any problem doing this. In fact, you are going to enjoy it very much,” she tells me in a strangely excited tone.
“And what is this request? No, before that, why do you even think I will accept any of your requests?” I ask suspiciously.
“Wait for a few minutes, I will tell you about it later. First, I want to make it clear that I am not going to lie to you or try to trap you in any sort of way,” she says earnestly.
“Okay…?” I answer, my suspicion growing.
“And for that, I need to tell you something about my family. So, let’s start with my father, okay? As my mom might have already told you, he’s a complete workaholic. Forget spending some time with his family, he rarely even talks to us anymore.
“But that’s only half the truth. It’s not like he was always like this. Until a few years ago, he was just like any other normal loving Dad to me. He used to help me study, have conversations with me about the things I like, and even used to take us outside to have some fun as a family.
“Now, you might be wondering, what caused him to change so drastically, right?” she asks.
Well, no, I am actually wondering why the heck are you are telling me this…
“It’s because he simply became fed up with all of us. And the entire blame lies with my mother and brother. After my father changed his job and started earning way more money than before, mother’s earlier decent behavior changed completely.
“She became obsessed with money and the high-class life that comes with it and started demanding expensive materialistic things from my Dad to compete with her newly made rich friends. She even started caring more about these friends of hers than her family.
“And pf course, like any other person, my Dad also didn’t like this sudden and unpleasant change in her, resulting in numerous loud and unpleasant arguments between them.
“And almost every time, these arguments ended up with my mom emotionally blackmailing him with fake tears and accusations and my Dad giving up to her demands.
“Saddened and depressed, he completely stopped caring about mom after a while and minimized his conversation with her to the point of exchanging just a few words with her, only when necessary.
“But still, he didn’t leave her, probably thinking about the trauma me and my brother would go through from our parent’s separation. Towards us, he was still a great Dad. Well, until Alex grew up a little more, and turned into the biggest asshole in this world,” Aurora says, her voice becoming bitter.
I unconsciously raise a small voice in surprise. I didn’t expect Aurora to call her brother an asshole. This word fits his personality so perfectly that it’s my favorite insult for him.
“Now, I know that Alex is your friend and that you might not want to hear anything bad against him but please, let me finish.
“So, as I was saying, Alex became an asshole after growing up. Now, if I start telling you the things, he did to earn this title from me, we might have to keep talking till the morning, so I will just give you a quick overview.
“At first, he basically became like mom and started demanding a lot of money and expensive stuff. But my father didn’t want his children to get spoiled, so he rarely ever listened to these demands.
“But one way or the other, Alex was determined to have what he wanted. So, he resorted to dirty tricks to get Dad to listen to him. He started throwing loud tantrums, breaking or ruining Dad’s things and once, he even when as far as burning away of Dad’s important office documents.
“Of course, he was punished severely for this: Dad took away all his games and stuff and grounded him like for a month if I remember correctly. But this only made him much, much worse.
“Angry because of the punishment, his dirty tricks turned more and more violent towards Dad. He even started setting up small traps around the house, like dumping oil on the stairs or scattering small flathead pins beside Dad’s bed, to hurt him.
“Due to this, Dad got injured numerous times, sometimes mildly, sometimes severe enough to be taken to the hospital. And when he finally confronted Alex about all of this, you know what he said? He blamed me for forcing him to do it.
“And I didn’t even know about this until a few months ago when Alex himself told me gleefully that he put the entire blame of what he did on me,” Arora says, her voice literally shaking from anger now.
“I don’t think that Dad believed Alex to be innocent, but he must have thought that I was guilty as well because I was in my rebellious teenage days. But the truth is; I never did anything to hurt Dad.
“But finally, Dad had had enough of his troublesome family. Right from the next day after his talk with Alex, he started spending almost all of the time in his office. I think he even rented a room nearby to sleep.
“And currently, he visits this house only once per month to give mom the money for us to live comfortably,” she finishes, sounding extremely sad.
Damn… I didn’t expect it to be turned out like this.
While I feel bad for Aurora, I don’t even have any words to express my pity for her poor Dad. He was such a nice and caring husband and parent.
And that bastard Alex…
I, who never had a father and secretly wishes for one, cannot even begin to understand how that sorry son of a bitch could do what he did.
In fact, I am feeling so angry that I could strangle that bastard right now.
“So, I have told you everything I wanted to. You are now fully aware of the current condition of my family. And I think I can tell you about my request now,” Aurora says after a small pause.
“Help me punish my mother and Alex for what they did to my father.”
“Help you… punish them?” I ask, frowning slightly.
“Yes, though for now, only my mother. I cannot think of a way to punish my brother yet, for what he did,” she answers.
“See, I feel really sorry for you and your Dad. And obviously, I am really angry over what Mrs. Kremer and Alex did, but how can I, an outsider, help you to punish them?” I ask, confused.
“Well, you can. But first, tell me this: do you actually like my mom or are you just seeking a physical relationship from her?” She asks in a serious tone.
“W-Well, seeing that we just met yesterday, I think I am going to go with the latter,” I say.
“Wait, what!? You met my mom yesterday for the first time!?” Aurora asks, shocked.
“Then why was she calling you her lover and stuff!? She seems totally obsessed with you!” she says, still in disbelief.
“I have no idea…” I answer honestly.
Even I thought Mrs. Kremer was acting really weird. She was proactively trying to have sex with me even after the Beast’s scent wore off.
“It’s unexpected, but I guess this does make things easier…” Aurora says with a sigh.
“So, Paul, how about I fulfill those physical needs of yours along with my mother?”
