When The Truth Hurts - Chapter 5
“You’re not laying your hands on her!” Nathan barked into the phone, totally unaware that Megan was just a few feet away.
“Do you know where she is?” the voice on the other line asked in a mocking tone.
“My men lost her as well.”
“You had her followed?” Nathan asked in shock.
“You’re not doing your job, Meyer”, the man snapped, “What happened? Did the little slut…”
“Don’t you dare call her…”
“Don’t forget that you owe me”, the voice interrupted, “You are nothing without me.”
Nathan paced around the room, trying to keep his cool. The boss was getting on his nerves and he already made his first mistake by trying to defend Megan.
“Look, she knows nothing about the disk” he said in a confident tone, “she tells me everything.”
“Don’t trust the Parkers”, the man shouted, “She’s young and pretty and a good fuck but she’s still Parker’s daughter.”
Nathan fumed, realizing that the boss had followed his every move. He had not stick to the plan and the boss knew it. He had to save the situation.
“I know it was not the plan but if I had not gotten closer to her, we’d never figure out what Patrick was plotting”, Nathan continued.
“So that’s the only reason? You really think that she has no idea?” the boss asked in a calm voice.
“Remember Senator Brown’s wife? She disappeared for almost two years after her husband’s suicide. Megan’s probably hiding from the media as well till they forget the story.”
“Fine but keep in touch Meyer. I have more work for you.” The boss announced before hanging up.
Nathan sank into an armchair and let out a sigh of relief.
Megan stood against the wall, listening in shock to Nathan’s words as he spoke on the phone. She could not believe it. Nathan had used and manipulated her all the time and like a foolish little girl, she had fallen into his trap. Tears were threatening to fall but she somehow managed to control them. The pain she felt in her heart was too much. She had been living a lie, an illusion for so long!
She forced herself not to walk into the room. She clenched her fists and muttered to herself, “Don’t ruin everything Megan, you’re so close! Do it for Daddy and Mark. She peered into the room and watched as Nathan sat in the old armchair, now nursing a drink. The conversation was over. She forced herself to walk back to his bedroom quietly, hoping that he would not hear her footsteps.
The moment she walked into the bedroom, she saw her reflection in the mirror and stared in disgust. There she was, wearing nothing but the shirt of the man who had ruined her life. She felt cheap and dirty. How could she have been so stupid? She had to get away from him. She was about to walk out of the room when she heard the sound of his footsteps approaching.
She quickly discarded his shirt and slipped under the bed sheets and rolled to her side. She could feel the tears falling freely on her cheeks and forced herself to be quiet.
“Meggie? You’re awake?” Nathan whispered as he touched her shoulder, “Sweetie, what’s wrong?”
Megan did not move as her heart started to beat faster. She closed her eyes and tried not to make any sound but Nathan touched her shoulder again.
“Meggie, I know you’re not sleeping”, he murmured as he moved closer.
Megan turned to face him, knowing there was no point pretending. She avoided meeting his eyes and he touched her cheek. She resisted the urge to push him away.
“You’re still thinking of Mark and Patrick, aren’t you?” he said in a concerned tone.
She nodded quietly and he pulled her into his arms, holding her tightly against his body. She wanted to pull away, unwilling to feel his touch. Yet, she knew that if she reacted this way, he would figure it out.
“He knows me too well”, she thought as she remained still, “He can guess my thoughts easily. I can’t let him realize that I know what’s happening.”
The boss sat by his desk, pondering over the call with Nathan Meyer. The man had proved to be useful since the beginning. Yes, he was a smart guy. Befriending Patrick Parker at his age and becoming his most trusted friend within a year had meant getting inside information from the company. Nathan Meyer could do anything for money.
At least this is what he thought until Patrick Parker and his son had to die. At that moment, Nathan Meyer had almost backed out. The boss had not seen that coming but he acted fast. Nathan Meyer’s weakness was his business. He knew that the moment he would try to go against the boss, he would be involved into a scandal far worse than Patrick’s death and he would lose everything.
There was a sudden knock on the door and a young woman entered the office. The boss smiled as she approached. He studied her appearance and motioned her to stand still. The woman hesitated as he got up from his chair and walked towards her. He chuckled at her reaction and ordered her to come closer.
He was not impressed with her lack of class and confidence. She was definitely clumsy and he was ready to send her back but there was something about her that reminded him of that woman he could not forget.
“Have you done this before?” he asked coldly as he stared at her.
“I’m new to the agency sir.” She answered, avoiding looking at him.
The boss watched her intently. Despite the lack of elegance, she resembled that woman in so many ways. He ordered her to undress and watched in annoyance as she fumbled with the buttons of her coat. He sat in a nearby armchair and undid his pants and waited.
He once again studied her. The long dark brown hair, the slim figure and the dark brown eyes reminded him of that woman again. He noticed that she was somehow struggling with the high heels and told her to remove them. She gave him a grateful smile but looked away as she remembered her orders. She was not supposed to speak to him but just do what he told her and leave right after.
The smile took his breath away. For the first time in years he felt the same emotion as he did when he had first met that woman.
“Come closer”, he whispered as he stood up.
She walked to him, a little confused by the soft voice. He slipped his arm around her waist and pulled her close to him. He kissed her hungrily and he felt her response. He slipped his hand between her legs and started to tease her pussy lips as he pushed his tongue in her mouth.
He pulled away and sat back in his armchair. The young woman stood still, waiting for her orders from the man. The woman at the agency had told her that she was only meant to follow the guy’s orders and execute them immediately. After what seemed like an eternity, the boss spoke.
“Get on all fours.”
The woman did as she was told and the boss stood up. He observed her for a few seconds, admiring her in that position. He undressed quietly while she looked away. She seemed to be sneaking a few glances at him when she believed that his eyes were not on her. Normally he would have sent her away for even staring like that but right now, he needed to take her.
He moved behind her and kneeled down. He touched her shoulder and ran his ran down her back, feeling her smooth skin. He noticed that she was shaking a bit.
“Am I your first client?” he asked coldly.
She nodded and he got annoyed. He smacked her ass cheek hard, making her cry in pain and surprise.
“Answer me when I ask a question!” he snapped loudly.
“Y...yes sir”, she whispered.
“That voice”, he thought as he continued to run his fingers over her back. She was once again reminding her of that woman he had known twenty years ago.
He moved his hands to her ass cheeks and squeezed them gently, enjoying their firmness. He felt her take a deep breath and found himself smiling. He knew it was going to be good. He let his fingers wander down to her cleanly shaven sex and started to rub her pussy lips gently, checking her wetness.
He suddenly found himself speaking, “Don’t be nervous, this will be so good.”
He cursed himself. Why was he reassuring her? She was just another little slut hired to give him pleasure. Yet, he was being gentle and caring to her. What was happening to him?
“So fucking tight”, he groaned as he pushed one of his fingers inside her. He could her little moans as he started to wiggle it inside her. He soon added another finger and worked them in and out of her, softly encouraging her not to hold it as he continued to play with her pussy.
He needed to be inside her now. He could not wait anymore. He pulled his fingers out and tasted her pussy juices off them. He smiled when he noticed that she had been looking at him over her shoulder. He rubbed the head of his cock over her pussy lips before shoving himself all the way inside her, hearing her surprised scream at the sudden penetration.
He started to move in and out of her, guided by the little moans she let out. He held her tightly by the hips as he increased the pace and pushed into her even harder. He moaned as well as her walls tightened around him.
He slapped her butt cheeks a few times as he continued to fuck her, realizing that she was loving it as well. Her moans grew louder and he realized that she was going to cum soon. He started to fuck her relentlessly, giving her what she wanted. He found her clit and squeezed it gently, sending her over the edge.
“That’s it” he groaned out, “Cum over my hard dick!”
She screamed as her orgasm took over and he found himself losing control and before he could pull out of her, he was spurting his seed inside her, intensifying her orgasm as she continued to cry and scream her release.
It was over very quickly. He pulled out of her quietly and started to get dressed. She was still catching her breath. She stood up and looked around for her things while he went to his desk and took out a small envelop from one of his drawers. He waited as she pulled the coat over her body and motioned for her to come closer.
He handed her the envelop which she stuffed in the pocket of her coat. She looked at him hesitantly for a few seconds before turning to make her way out of the room. She paused by the door and stared at him again.
“What’s your name?” he asked just when she was about to open the door.
“Melanie” she replied softly before stepping out.
He stood there for a long time before he grabbed his cellphone and dialed the agency’s number.
“I want all the details about that girl you sent me today.” He ordered, “Yes that’s her. Melanie. Okay, thanks.”
Megan slipped out of bed and checked the time. It was nearly four o’clock in the morning. Nathan was sound asleep, looking so peaceful in bed while she had stayed awake the whole night. The shock from the previous night and the presence of Nathan had been too much for her.
“How can you sleep?” she thought as she watched him for a few more seconds, “Do I even know the real you?”
She decided to spend some time in her mother’s bedroom. She paced around the room, her mind full of thoughts. There were so many unanswered questions in her mind. Should she confront Nathan? It was the only thing she really wanted to do but she remembered the words he had said last night. Nathan was working for someone else and he could hurt her if she revealed that she knew something.
She clenched her hands into fists and closed her eyes. “Calm down Megan”, she told herself, “Don’t do anything stupid. Think with your head, not your heart!”
She repeated the words softly to herself, her eyes closed as she remembered her family. She took a deep breath before sitting on the bed and grabbed a nearby pillow and hugged it while she started to think.
“Nathan knew what dad was doing all the time. He used me. He never loved me”, she realized, “He takes orders from someone else. He acts like an informer or something. I practically told him what dad has been doing!”
Megan’s heart was hurt. She felt like someone had stabbed her in the back. Nathan used her all that time. He had been paid to seduce her and every moment they had spent together had been a calculated move.
“I’ve been so naive. He was playing with us all the time.”
At that moment, she heard the door creak and Nathan was in the room. He smiled at her and handed her a mug.
“Coffee, just as you like it” he said as he kissed her forehead.
Megan sipped it quietly, listening as Nathan explained what he did to her mother’s house. He acted so eager and genuine as he continued to make plans for it. Megan could not believe her ears as she heard his words.
“Meggie, are you alright?” he asked in a concerned voice, “you look so pale.”
“I…I… am not feeling well”, she lied.
“Do you need anything? Should I get a doctor?”
“No, don’t worry. I’ll rest and should be fine.”
“Alright but if you’re not feeling any better, I’m calling a doctor.”
Megan lied down in bed and closed her eyes. She heard Nathan saying something about needing to do some paperwork and then he finally left the room. She sobbed in the pillow, unable to control her tears as she realized once again that he was still playing with her.
After a long time, she managed to calm down. She kept reminding herself that she had no time to feel sorry for herself. She had to think ahead and get away from Nathan. She got out of bed and decided to check on him. She tiptoed slowly out of the room and heard his voice downstairs. She listened for a few minutes, realizing that he was talking business.
She went to the closet where he had kept the clothes Nana Camilla had sent for her and picked some of them and quickly stuffed them in her backpack. When she decided that she had enough clothes, she walked to the bookshelf and took her mother’s diary and some of her belongings which included a photo album and some books.
She needed to get the letters and the key from the attic but she knew that she could not do so at the moment; not with Nathan so close. She hid the bag under the bed and crawled back under the covers. She hoped that he would not notice that some of the things had moved.
She looked back at the recent turn her life had taken. “Dad must have discovered something really big”, she muttered to herself, “something so big that it cost him his life and Mark’s too”
Her mind pondered over the words Nathan had said over the phone. Once again, she felt lost. Could he really have been lying to her all along? Who was Nathan Meyer? Who was the tender man who made love to her just last night or was he just an illusion created to seduce and manipulate her?
She heard his approaching footsteps again and turned as he walked into the room again. He sat on the edge of the bed and touched her cheek.
“You look pale, Meggie”, he muttered gently as he ran his fingers through her hair, “I think I should get the doctor.”
She started to protest before realizing that it was exactly what she needed. With Nathan away, she could grab her things and reach the station before he got back. She continued to play along.
“I don’t want to stay here alone.” She said, trying to sound weak.
“I promise I won’t take long. I know there’s a doctor in town but I’ll have to ask around before I find him.”
“I don’t need a doctor.”
“I will be back very soon.”
Nathan left the room and after a few minutes she heard him leaving in his truck. She got out of bed and changed her clothes quickly. She ran to the attic and retrieved the letters and the key which she shoved in the bag and ran to the bathroom to turn on the shower and locked the door from outside before throwing the key away. That would keep Nathan busy waiting for a few minutes before he would worry and break the door.
She ran to his room and noticed that his wallet was on the side table. She took out some money from it and ran outside. She had to hurry if she wanted to get away before he came back. She checked the time, realizing that Nathan would probably reach town by now. She had taken longer than expected. She started to run down the road as fast as she could till she saw that she was approaching town. She was suddenly aware that Nathan could head back any moment now. He would easily spot her. She slowed down and whenever she would hear a vehicle driving closer, she would check to see if it was his truck.
She was soon in town and walked around carefully. She needed to get to the station now and make sure that she would not run into Nathan. He was probably on his way back now. She was about to turn into a lane when she spotted him in front of a building. There was a man accompanying him. Megan looked around and stepped into the nearby shop. From where she was standing, she could see Nathan and the man getting into the truck and driving away.
She could not believe her luck. Nathan had really taken a lot of time to find a doctor. She walked out of the shop and within a few minutes, she was buying her ticket at the railway station. She was soon in the wagon, knowing that the train would start its journey soon. By the time Nathan would realize that she was not home, she would already be out of this place.
