Ever have a story so hot it would be wrong not to share it with the rest of the world? We're here to listen. Every week, we'll bring you tempting tales from our readers that will definitely keep you up all night—in the best way possible. This time, Jessica* shares a story about the time she got some very guilty pleasure.
Okay, tell me about your ex.
James* and I dated for six months, but we eventually broke up because we moved away from each other. Afterwards, he started dating this girl, but they wound up going on a lot of “breaks” because she was honestly so crazy. Whenever they were on a break, we would hook up. I thought it would end, but shockingly, they eventually moved in together.
Well what was so crazy about her?
After just a year of dating, she made him pay rent for her, put GPS tracking on his phone, and actually sold some of his clothes without asking. She stole his stuff, then blackmailed him so he could get it back. I think that was the straw that broke the camel’s back, you know? After three years, they finally broke up for good.
Okay, so she seems pretty easy to hate.
Yes! So then one day after that, I get this message from James that said, "She's gonna be gone for the weekend. I’m gonna move my stuff out of her apartment. Do you wanna come over?”
Ha! Sounds like he definitely had a plan.
Yeah—I had this gut feeling like, "This has to happen.” So I drove to stay the weekend with him. We got super drunk off of all her liquor in her house and started making out on her couch! It turned into us having sex in the bed that they used to share together.
The ultimate revenge fantasy!
Plus, this was the first time that we'd had sex in two years, so it was definitely crazy.
Just how crazy are we talking here?
We left the sheets soaking wet with sweat, like...puddles. And then we went and took a shower. I used all of her body wash, which was so ridiculous now that I think about it. We left the place exactly how it was—a mess. I left my cardigan there too. It was so perfect, leaving her bed a wreck and just completely going nuts.
Did that tension make the sex better?
Oh my gosh, yes. It was way better sex than we ever had before. It was just the best reunion sex and the best revenge sex, all rolled into one.
What happened when she came home?
Well she said, "Whose cardigan is this? Why is all of my wine gone?" and he's just "I don't know what you're talking about. I’ve been alone all weekend.” Then he split.
I can’t believe she bought that. Then you started dating?
We've been dating for a year and a half now. It was honestly the best way to rekindle our past relationship. We always had this great connection—it's come a long way.
Did she ever find out about it?
Well, crazy is hard to kill. After they broke up, she kept texting him. She even texted him the names of the kids she wanted to have with him. Finally he said, “Listen, this is over. It’s been over since my ex and I slept in your bed together and used your pillow, the pillow that you're sleeping on right now, to prop her up. This has been over for awhile." Which completely blew everything out of the water. I’d say we got the last laugh.
