There Is Only One Ranger…and how did he scratch his itch?

In chapter three of this story, Ranger’s betrayal is revealed. The problem wasn’t the fact that he had another woman, it was that he hid it from Stephanie. He had a girlfriend, a relationship, and he lied to her. Her triangle was well-known and she didn’t hide and Ranger kind of used it to his advantage. Don’t you think? What it looks like at this point is that he kind of made Stephanie his Trenton girl.

The most hurtful thing to her was sharing stories about her as entertainment fodder to his girlfriend, Paulina. That was the big straw that broke the friendship apart.

In the next chapter, I make this author’s note:

Many of you had fantastic comments and insights about the last chapter. Funny thing. This started with a chat with another author you all know. She mentioned in a chapter of her own story, Ranger thinking in his mind about mistresses. I told her that it reminded me of a story that I’d half-finished and I went back and looked at it and it was pretty good. In JE’s books, nothing is ever mentioned about Ranger and how he scratches his itch for what? Nearly three years? You know that a virile man like him is not celibate by far. He’s getting it somewhere and he’s too old and sophisticated now to be still trolling the bars. I think he’d at least want someone familiar for his itch. He has money. So, what would be the logical scenario? Posting on my blog if you want to register your opinion on the subject.  

Ever wonder about that? Babe’s, we would like to think he saves himself and pines only for Stephanie… But, I think, no.

A couple of you said that you had similar experiences in a relationship with a dishonest man. I had one kind of like this too. He was my first true love and we were very young.  He was four years older than my 18 years and we were having issues and broke up for a little while. He moved to a little town about thirty miles away for a few months and then came back and began a new job and he was rooming with a buddy that just got divorced. He showed up at my work one night when I was coming out. All he had to do was touch me with one stupid finger and I melted and fell for him, again. One month later and ironically, on an Easter morning, the doorbell rings.

I heard voices and then he came into the bedroom and told me to get dressed and leave. There was a girl standing in the living room, his other girl. She thought that I was someone that he’d just picked up the night before. We had been together two years. That was the last straw for me. I had been in her shoes already, one time before. I told her to beware on my way out the door. She was crying and I told her to save some tears for later, he wasn’t done breaking her heart, I told her that I had already been in her shoes and cried so many times over that guy. The jerk told me enough and to be quiet, kind of like I wrote Ranger doing with Stephanie.

If you have a story and want to share, we girls are here…

    It’s fascinating that you have this forum for discussion. i was involved in a situation once with two men. I was in grad school, and both of them were in the same department. I don’t think I was mature enough to figure out what ought to be going on; I had this idea that lots of people date more than one person at a time, but it sure didn’t work for me. Maybe if they had lived in different towns (or at least on two different sides of campus) it might have been more reasonable. I can’t wait to see what happens in your story – there are so many possibilities, so many alternate realities. Thanks for sharing.

    Men suck ass sometimes I’m tellin ya! But it’s that whole can’t live with em can’t blah blah blah bullshit you know. I think I fell in love with the plum world so much two years ago because I identified with Stephs commitment phobias I’ve been hurt one to many times trust issues now run deep that and I’m so over compromising myself to fit into your life but you not doing the same for me bs swear google a YouTube video Ertha Kitt compromise it’s from the seventies or eighties I just saw it the first time the other day and it cracked me up because it reminded me so much of our favorite babe if only she had just a tad bit more backbone. Anyways just ranting love your stories so glad you’re sharing a new one with us 🙂

    I was the other woman once! I was young and naive. Fell in love with an old money blue blood in Savannah. We would meet in SC and I was too dumb to question why (I lived in Atlanta). His wife confronted me at a hotel–she came flying out of another room when I was standing at the elevator. I was such an idiot! I stood there frozen while she screamed at me and I actually believed him when he said he had no idea who she was. That was nearly 15 years ago, but I will never forget how blindly I followed him and the absolute devastation he left behind when he went back to his wife.

    Enjoying your story and looking forward to whatever is headed our way!
