Promise Me (Photo Story)

Walter drops by Deirdre’s place unannounced. He’s upset because he's called numerous times, but all of his calls have gone unanswered.


Walter! This is a surprise. (Deirdre)


Where have you been all day? Why didn’t you answer your phone? (Walter)


I went to help Robyn at the club, and I didn’t have my phone with me. I left it at home by mistake. (Deirdre)


What, there’s no phone at the club? Or were you too busy with your friends to check in? (Walter)


Wait a minute… I admit that I forgot to call. And I’m really sorry, but I don’t like how you’re treating me like some teenager who has to call home. (Deirdre)


You're right. I apologize for my tone. It’s just that I was worried sick about you. (Walter)


Oh, baby I didn’t realize I made you worry. I’m so sorry. It won’t happen again. (Deirdre)


Promise me. (Walter)


Hmm? (Deirdre)


Promise me that it won’t ever happen again. (Walter)


Alright, I promise. (Deirdre)


So, who else was at the club? (Walter)
What do you mean? (Deirdre)
I mean who, besides you and Robyn was there? (Walter)
Just a few of the employees prepping for an event. (Deirdre)


Males? Females? Names? (Walter)


The only guys were the bartender and the DJ. There were a couple of waitresses, too but nobody I remember by name. (Deirdre)

Walter goes to retrieve the bag he left in the car. Meanwhile, Deirdre realizes that he's feeling some kind of way...probably jealous and thinks it’s kind of cute.


 Well, now that I know you’re okay I have a surprise for you. (Walter)


Deirdre opens it and finds sexy lingerie. She smirks and raises an eyebrow.
Is this gift for me or for you? (Deirdre)
Both. Keep digging, there’s more. (Walter)


She takes out the negligee and uncovers a box from Hari’s Jewels. She opens it and gasps when she removes the stunning diamond necklace inside.

Walter, it’s beyond beautiful. I’m speechless. (Deirdre)


It’s just some silk and a trinket. I can and will give you so much more as long as you promise me that you will be mine…all mine. Can you promise me that? (Walter)

Deirdre laughs in her mind because only a man like Walter O’Dair could drop this kind of dough on a diamond necklace and call it a trinket.


Aren’t you going to try it on? (Walter)


Which one? (Deirdre)


Both. (Walter)

While Deirdre goes in the back to change, Walter sneaks a peek at her cell phone. 


She returns wearing both gifts, and Walter takes in the sight of her.

So...? (Deirdre)


 You’re right, the necklace is beautiful, but it’s nowhere near as beautiful as you are. The negligee is sexy, too but no amount of silk or lace could be as sexy as you......You can take it off now. (Walter)


Which one? (Deirdre)


Not the necklace. (Walter)


Thanks for reading!

  1. Walter is a bit stalkerish! Watch out, Dierdre, while he may be loaded and shower you with gifts, he is a bit obsessed with knowing where you are and with whom at all times. Beware!

    1. Yeah, he's coming on crazy strong. That's never a good sign.

  2. Oh, heck no. Deirdre may think him being jealous is hot now, but that guy has got some serious issues. My spidey sense is tingling! Guys like that turn in to wackadoos with a quickness.

    Great story!

    1. Your Spidey senses are on point, Muff! When I was much younger, I used to think it was cute when dudes would act jealous, but later I learned that ish ain't cute at all. It's definitely a sign of something deeper and darker.

    1. SP, isn't it funny how some people miss the obvious warning signs? In the next epi, you'll see how Deirdre rationalizes his behavior...smh

  5. Goodness what is the deal with Walter?!! I hope Deirdre is noticing his danger spikes!

    1. Brini, he has deep-seated insecurities and a need to control everything, including people. But Walter is also charming and affectionate, so Deirdre (who hasn't encountered this type of behavior before) doesn't see it for what it really is.

  6. Ok I am not feeling this guy. I had such an urge to tell him off while reading. LOL The problem with guys like him is it is hard to get rid of them. Often their behaviors escalate with rejection.
    She might have to get extreme like have him boxed up and sent to another country! LOL

    1. LOL grandmommy, I love your idea for getting rid of Walter! You're right about guys like him being hard to get rid of, and just think with the kind of money and influence he has, it will be darn near impossible.

  7. Uh oh ... not loving the possessiveness. I'd be there's your trinket, there's your silk, and there's the door. Whew.

    Good story though - I'm looking forward to seeing more of these two ;-)

    1. I know that's right, D7ana! Experience taught me to run from guys like this. If all goes as planned, you should see more of Walter and Deirdre this weekend.

  8. I was thinking Walter was going to find something on her phone. He's not a keeper. I can't wait to see what happens next.

    1. Nope, nothing on her phone. Walter's the irrationally jealous type. Definitely not a keeper.

  9. If I didn't know better, I would think Walter was my ex-husband. Deidre girl, don't do what I did. Show that nut the door!

    1. I know what you mean, Vanessa. I had two ex-boyfriends like Walter, and like the grandmommy said they were awfully hard to get rid of.

    1. Thanks, Georgia Girl! You're right- crazy ain't cute no matter what. I think most readers are going to be shocked by how this all plays out.

  13. Hi Jewell, Walter is a bit too jealous for my tastes but as long as Deidre can manage him.....but he must be very careful....I can't imagine her reaction if she caught him checkin her cell phone......
    Great story!

    1. Thanks, Billa! The worst thing about Walter's behavior is how irrational it is. Deirdre hasn't given him any reason to act so jealous.

      Delete
  14. Wow, Deidre is a tough gal.. Being a gullible person that I am, I am pleasantly surprised by her banter because it feels like, girl power! Yeah, a jealous dude can be cute sometimes but I'm afraid this won't be the last time Walter is having such moments... Hmmm... probably a little later after the satin drops to the floor :D

    1. LOL @ "after the satin drops to the floor." You're right in guessing that this won't be the last of Walter's jealous moments.

    1. Thanks and welcome to my blog! You're right about Walter- he's charming but emotionally unstable to the point of being down right creepy.
