Chapter 38, Trophy Ring, Now Goodbye
When meeting Enrico I wore Edward’s sapphire ring. Eventually he asked about it. I said it was from a trophy lover. He wanted to know what a trophy lover was. I didn’t answer. He then asked.
"Am I a trophy lover?"
"Am I wearing your ring?"
"What do I need to do to be your trophy lover?"
"Start with a trophy ring."
This set him back and kept him quite. Thereafter I flashed Edward's ring more and would look at while we were talking and even during sex as if I had to think of another to enjoy his huffing and puffing.
One day, meeting, in room 314, he presented a little jewel box. Inside was a gold ring with a mounted pearl. I said nothing, smiled, told him to get undressed and on the bed. He assumed I was happy, undressed rapidly and sat on the bed edge with Mr. Supini erect.
I didn’t touch the ring, stayed dressed, went to the bathroom and dampened a towel for his pelvic wipe down but used cold water. I knelt before him, wiped him down while he complained about the cold towel, told him to hush, and massaged Mr. Supini.
Once he was fully aroused I told him to lie on his back and shut his eyes, stood up holding the towel and got my purse next to the night stand. He cheated and peeked. He assumed I was getting a condom and smiled. Instead I put the purse strap over my shoulder and walked to the door. He sat up naked.
"What's wrong? What's the matter?"
I opened the door and yelled back.
"You got half a date for half a trophy ring."
Piqued, I threw the wet towel at him but missed. It plopped against the wall next to him. He yelled.
"Nay, you missed!"
I was in my car and gone before he could chase after me, if he did, a repeat of the "good wife" tiff.
It took him a week of wooing before I agreed to meet him. He assured me if we met I would have a "full ounce" trophy ring. I gave him my ring size and told him I wanted a ruby.
A week later we met at room 314. There were roses but no Champagne. Instead next to the roses was a jewelry box. Inside was an 18 caret gold ring with modest but beautiful ruby stone and two diamonds. I could tell the stone was a natural from Burma.
