I saw them by the pool and Tiffany looked upset. Ruby sat next to her and they looked as if they'd been talking for a while.
If it was about Tiffany dumping that loser of a boyfriend she had, then I didn't think it bad news at all. Sooner or later, she'd find out that he was just using her until he tired of her and then he'd move on to the next woman in line. I knew men like that who were players, I'd worked with men just like Chad and they'd left a trail of women crying when they dumped them. But it was the women who should have known better not to hook up these men who were just looking for some action.
"He's going to regret it," Tiffany said, "I mean I'm much better than her."
Oh, so Chad her boyfriend, the one who had fucked her that night outside the cabana had another girl on the side. That didn't surprise me in the least but it seemed to have caught my daughter by surprise. To see her unhappy never made me happy but this time, it'd be for the best.
"Maybe Tiff but do you want to spend the rest of the summer pining over some guy who treated you like that?"
Sniffles followed that from my daughter. More iced tea got poured into glasses and then they continued talking.
"But I was going to spend the Fourth with him."
"Call up another guy and ask him to join you."
Tiffany appeared to think about it and then she nodded.
"Okay that'll work," she said, "If I show up with another guy, Chad might get jealous."
"Maybe…but I wouldn't worry about him," Ruby said, "Why don't you ask Jason out?"
Who's Jason, I asked myself but Tiffany seemed to like him judging by her reaction.
"Yeah I'll do that," she said, "He did finger fuck me behind the gym back in high school."
My body grew rigid. My daughter was going to the picnic with a guy who messed around with her in school? If I'd known, but I had been gone on work most of her years in high school so I missed a lot including what guys she went out with and what else had happened. But I'd have to have a talk with Jason and set him straight on a few facts of life if he messed with her now.
"You are bringing Brock? Don't tell me you're not because I know he'll be in town."
Ruby nodded, a smile curving her mouth.
"He's going to make the food," she said, "He loves to cook and he's been all over the world so he knows nearly every cuisine."
I wondered if Brock had ever cooked for my wife before fucking her.
"That'll be great," Tiffany said, "We should hook up and double date some time."
Ruby didn't look too sure.
"He's a bit different than a guy like Jason," she said, "He's intense but I've had a great time with him."
"I bet, he's so hard bodied. I had a fantasy or two about him."
I went back to typing up an email on my laptop, still listening while Gloria brought out some settings for the table outside by the pool. Then Gloria asked Tiffany to come into the house with her.
Leaving me alone with Ruby…
She sat there by the pool dressed in her blue bikini. She'd brought a sarong to wear for dinner which showed off her tanned body. Her hair had dried after she'd been swimming and a few strands blew loose even after she put it in a ponytail.
I went over to join her and she looked up at me.
"Hi Ruby, so you're giving my daughter boyfriend advice?"
"You heard us," she said, "Chad's looking like he's out of the picture."
She gave me a strange look.
"You'll have to ask Tiffany," she said, "I'm not her spokesperson."
I'd heard an ounce of defensiveness in her voice though she didn't show it.
"I'm just concerned about her and I didn't like this guy."
"Would you like any guy," Ruby said, "is anyone out there good enough for her?"
I didn't know what she was getting at but I knew she was trying to make some point.
"I'm her father," I said, "and fathers worry."
"I wouldn't know but thanks for sharing."
She looked at her nails which looked as if she'd gotten then manicured and then she looked at me.
"So what should we talk about now that we're alone?"
I didn't want to talk to her…not when she sat there with the sarong sliding enough to see her tanned legs, very fit and I already know how they felt wrapped around me.
"Ruby…what I'd like to do with that mouth of yours doesn't involve talking."
She smiled licking her lips.
"You want me to suck your cock," she said, "with your wife and Tiff in the other room."
"No later…when they go to sleep…"
"In the cabana…"
"Then I want to fuck you," he said, "I've been wanting to thrust my cock inside that pussy all day."
"I can tell…"
She smiled with a hint of mischief in her eyes and I knew she saw I'd gotten hard.
"Devlin…I'll think about it," she said, "I'm kind of tired."
I shook my head.
"No…tonight you'll join me in the cabana and I'll strip that bikini off of you and I'm going to fuck you like crazy…like…"
"Like you can't fuck your wife?"
I just stared at her as she tilted her face awaiting my response.
She furrowed her brows.
"Devlin…you handcuffed me and I went down on you," she said, "and then you fucked me from behind like I was an animal…I'm guessing your wife frowns on that."
"Leave her out of it," I said, "She has nothing to do with us."
"But she's your wife and I'm your whore."
I didn't know what game she was playing. She just stared at me with those eyes of hers that could shift with emotion so quickly.
"I'm not so sure I can do this anymore."
What? What had she just said? Had I heard her right?
"Ruby…I thought you wanted it," I said, "You sure act like it."
She sighed, fidgeting on the chaise.
"I do…I get so off on being with you," she said, "It's just that I…it doesn't seem like you even like me."
"What do you mean," I said, "Of course I do…you're a beautiful sexy young woman."
She looked away for a moment.
"Okay…I'll meet you later," she said, "But I…I don't know about the handcuffs…I…maybe that's something we don't have to do."
I nodded, going along with it. Once I got her alone, I'd call the shots and she'd get herself into it. She hadn't complained yet.
"Why do you like it so much?"
Her question caught me off guard and put me on guard.
"All this kink like bondage," she said, "I never would have figured you for that type."
I chuckled at that.
"Surprised…a lot of men get off on it…and so do their women."
"I like it…sometimes. But you want it a lot," she said, "and I don't know if I'm into that."
I didn't know what to say to that. She'd seemed to want it when I'd done those things to her that I needed to do. She hadn't complained about it or said no and she'd cried out when I made her come. So what was the problem?
"Okay tonight it'll be different," I said, "Once the others go to bed, I'll show you…"
She appeared to think about it and then she nodded.
"Okay…I'll meet you there…"
Then Gloria came out followed by Tiffany who seemed to be in a better mood. Maybe her mother had handed her the credit card to go out and charge herself a new wardrobe. We sat down at the table and started eating dinner. Gloria talked about her meetings that day to finalize the picnic and Tiffany and Ruby talked about the fireworks display.
But all I could think was about what would happen in the cabana. If Ruby wanted me to soften it a little bit, I could do that for a little while. Enough to show her how wrong she was to be worried about anything…at first I thought she didn't want to fuck me anymore. I didn't know if I was ready to stop seeing her.
So I sat at the table as we ate and bode my time.
