So Ernesto choose the wishes of his mom over a disloyal older woman's drive for short term excitement? Id say it's haram but he probably just has better options.

Chapter 1


It's another ordinary Thursday evening, and I find myself lost in thought while stirring the marinara sauce simmering on the stove. The sauce's bubbling almost harmonizes with the mundanity of my life, married to a man who, while dependable and caring in his own right, hardly stirs the depths of my soul or ignites a spark in my heart.

As I glance across the kitchen to the small tablet propped up against the wall, displaying recipes that I no longer have the enthusiasm to follow, my mind drifts to him—the embodiment of physical perfection that haunts my daydreams. It's not just his athletic, toned body that seems sculpted with a deliberate and disciplined approach to fitness, or the way his attire always seems effortlessly stylish, highlighting his well-proportioned features. It's his face that captures my imagination and refuses to let go.

His eyes, intense and expressive, seem to hold stories of worlds unseen, promising depth and intensity that could captivate anyone lucky enough to hold his gaze. There's a rugged appeal to his defined jawline and high cheekbones, a testament to his natural attractiveness, yet it's softened by the overall harmony and balance in his features. And his skin—clear and vibrant—speaks of meticulous care and attention, enhancing his magnetic quality.

I've never spoken to him, and yet, I feel I know him. In my mind, he's not just a man but a muse, a phantom of desire that I conjure in moments of silent yearning. My husband, bless his heart, talks of work, the mundane tasks of daily life, and plans for the future with a practicality that's both comforting and stifling. But this man, this vision of masculine allure, represents something else entirely—an unattainable ideal that whispers of passion and a life less ordinary.

Even in a crowd, I imagine he would stand out, not just for his physical appearance but for that air of confidence, that distinctive presence that sets him apart from the average. He's the kind of man who, without saying a word, could command attention, drawing eyes and stirring whispers of admiration. In my quieter moments, I wonder what it would be like to stand by his side, to be the object of envy as the wife of a man who could easily be described as a trophy husband.

But as the sauce needs stirring and the mundane tasks of the evening call me back to reality, I'm reminded of the gulf between fantasy and the life I lead. He remains a secret admiration, a vivid daydream that colors the edges of my reality with hues of what could have been. In my heart, I know it's not just his looks but the idea of a life filled with a passion and intensity that my current existence lacks, that draws me to him.

The beep of the timer snaps me back to the present, and with a sigh, I turn off the stove. As I prepare the table for dinner, the fantasy fades, tucked away into the corners of my heart, a bittersweet reminder of the desires that flicker quietly beneath the surface of a life filled with responsibilities and routine.

This younger man, a recent addition to the company where I spend my weekdays enclosed within the grey, lifeless walls of a cubicle, has become the subject of my most vivid daydreams. It's not just the stark contrast he presents to my husband, whose once-youthful vigor has been replaced by the all-too-common signs of middle-aged complacency, but something more profound.

Every morning, as I sit through the monotonous meetings, I find my gaze drifting towards him. He's always impeccably dressed, his attire accentuating his athletic build, a stark contrast to the ill-fitting suits and careworn expressions that populate the rest of the room. His presence brings a spark of something akin to excitement, a feeling I thought had long since been extinguished by the repetitive drone of daily life.

He's unaware of the turmoil he's caused within me, of course. To him, I'm just another colleague, perhaps slightly more engaged than the rest, our interactions limited to professional courtesies and the occasional project-related discussion. Yet, every word he speaks, every smile he shares, albeit sparingly, adds fuel to the fire of my imagination. I find myself crafting narratives in my mind where chance encounters lead to clandestine conversations, where the depth and intensity of his gaze are directed solely at me.

The contrast between him and my husband becomes most stark in these moments of daydreaming. Where my husband's hairline recedes further with each passing year, his frame expanding in direct proportion to his ambition's contraction, this young man represents vitality and potential. His youthfulness isn't just a matter of physical appearance but seems to permeate his very essence, infusing his interactions with a dynamism that's infectious.

As the workday ends and I return to the reality of my domestic life, the juxtaposition grows even more poignant. My husband, ensconced on the sofa, barely looks up from his screen as I enter, a grunt of acknowledgment serving as our evening's greeting. In these moments, the weight of what my life has become—and what it lacks—feels suffocating.

Yet, I'm tethered to my responsibilities, to the vows I made, and to the shared life that's not easily disentangled. The young man from work, with his captivating eyes and the promise of what could be, remains a fantasy. A vivid, tantalizing fantasy that offers an escape from the dreariness of my reality, but a fantasy nonetheless.

As night falls and I lie beside my husband, his snores a constant, unchanging soundtrack to our marriage, I allow myself one final indulgence. In the quiet of the darkness, I imagine a life different from my own, where passion and desire aren't just remnants of a youth long passed but are as real and present as the beating of my heart. And for a brief, fleeting moment, in the sanctuary of my mind, I allow myself to believe in the possibility of another life, another choice, another love.

Chapter 2

As I continue through the motions of my daily life, the contrast between Arthur and Ernesto becomes a focal point of my inner turmoil. Arthur, once the cornerstone of my stability, now seems more like a symbol of complacency. His receding hairline and expanding waistline serve as physical manifestations of the years of neglect, both of himself and, by extension, our relationship. It's not just his appearance but the essence of our connection that has frayed, leaving behind a partnership more functional than passionate.

Ernesto, on the other hand, is like a breath of fresh air. With every casual interaction, every shared laugh, and every glance that lingers just a moment too long, I find myself drawn deeper into the realm of what could be. His vitality is infectious, his zest for life a stark contrast to the stagnation that has crept into my marriage.

In the office, Ernesto is a source of light. His energy not only brightens the room but also ignites a spark within me that I thought had long since extinguished. His passion for life, his dedication to his health and appearance, and his ability to find joy in the everyday make me yearn for something more, something beyond the confines of my current reality.

At home, the differences between him and Arthur are glaring. Where Ernesto is dynamic and engaging, Arthur has become predictable and disinterested. The conversations with Arthur are perfunctory, revolving around the trivialities of daily life, lacking the depth and excitement that I now crave. As Arthur sits on the couch, lost in his own world, I can't help but notice the stark contrast to Ernesto's animated stories and vibrant presence.

My dreams are increasingly filled with fantasies of Ernesto. In these dreams, we're free from the constraints of our respective roles, exploring the depth of the connection I feel toward him. It's a tantalizing escape from the reality of my marriage to Arthur, where passion has been replaced by a comfortable familiarity.

Yet, each morning, as I wake up next to Arthur, the reality of my situation settles in once again. The dreams of Ernesto fade into the background, leaving behind a lingering sense of longing and dissatisfaction. I'm caught in the middle, torn between the stability and commitment I have with Arthur and the passionate potential I see in Ernesto.

As the days pass, my internal conflict grows. I'm acutely aware of the ethical and emotional implications of my fantasies, yet I can't shake the feeling that I'm missing out on a vital part of life. The more I try to suppress these thoughts, the more they seem to surface, especially when I catch a glimpse of Arthur's norwooding hairline and notice the comfort-induced expansion of his waistline.

In my quieter moments, I wonder what it would be like to act on these feelings, to explore the connection with Ernesto that seems so full of potential. But then, reality crashes back in, reminding me of the commitments I've made, the life I've built with Arthur. It's a cycle of longing and restraint, a dance between duty and desire, leaving me to navigate the complexities of my heart and the realities of my life.

Chapter 3

As I step into the office, a newfound determination courses through me. Arthur, with his increasingly distant demeanor and obliviousness to his own decline, fades into the backdrop of my motivations. The term "milkmired" echoes in my mind, a fitting description of his stagnation, while I've chosen a different path. I've invested in myself, embracing workouts that sculpt and define, hair extensions that cascade like silk, makeup that accentuates my features, and subtle fillers that restore a youthful vibrance. I'm not just transforming physically; I'm shedding the constraints of my former self, stepping into a persona fueled by desire and a thirst for something more.

Ernesto, in his quiet, unassuming way, has become the focal point of my newfound assertiveness. Unlike the confident, experienced individuals who often populate the corridors of our office, there's an innocence to him, a lack of experience that piques my curiosity and, admittedly, my interest. It's this very innocence that I find myself drawn to, a stark contrast to the predictability that has seeped into every corner of my life with Arthur.

Today, I approach Ernesto not as a colleague, but as someone who sees beyond the facade of professional courtesies and surface-level interactions. My approach is deliberate, each step measured, as I navigate the nuances of what some might call a "pick-up artist" technique, though it feels more like an awakening. I initiate conversation with a confidence that surprises even myself, threading innuendo and playful banter into our dialogue. My compliments are strategic, designed to disarm and intrigue, highlighting his accomplishments and the traits that set him apart.

Ernesto's reactions are telling. There's a flush to his cheeks, a hesitancy in his responses that speaks of his inexperience. Yet, there's also curiosity in his eyes, a burgeoning interest that mirrors my own. Our conversations stretch longer, veering from the professional to the personal, each exchange a subtle dance that draws us closer.

I find myself relishing this game, the thrill of the chase mixed with the anticipation of what might be. It's a departure from the woman I once was, the one who would have shied away from such boldness, content to remain in the shadows of her failing marriage. But that version of me seems like a distant memory, replaced by someone who pursues what she wants without apology.

As the days unfold, my interactions with Ernesto become the highlight of my existence, a stark contrast to the life I lead outside the office. With Arthur, I'm going through the motions, our conversations and interactions a mere formality. But with Ernesto, I feel alive, invigorated by the potential of what we could be.

It's a precarious balance, this dual life I'm leading. Yet, in the pursuit of something that promises to fill the void Arthur has left, I find myself willing to risk the fall. Ernesto, with his inexperience and quiet charm, represents a path untraveled, a possibility of what could be if only I dare to follow where this attraction leads.

Chapter 4

Buoyed by the thrill of our burgeoning connection, I find myself increasingly eager to bridge the gap between our office interactions and something more personal, more tangible. My phone, once a mere tool for mundane communications and endless scrolling, becomes the conduit for this new venture.

One evening, after a particularly charged conversation with Ernesto that lingered on the edge of something more, I decide to take a leap. I send him a message, a simple greeting paired with a light-hearted reference to an inside joke we shared earlier that day. The rush of sending it is palpable, a mix of anticipation and anxiety as I await his response.

Minutes tick by, each one stretching longer than the last. There's no reply, and the silence feeds my insecurities. Did I misread the signs? Was I too forward? The questions swirl, but my desire for connection, for confirmation that what I'm feeling isn't one-sided, pushes me to send another message. This time, I opt for a question, something to spark a conversation, to draw him out.

Still, there's no response. The digital silence is deafening, a stark contrast to the rapport we've built in person. It's this disparity that fuels my next decision—a third message, more direct than the others, expressing my interest in continuing our conversations outside of work, maybe over coffee.

As I hit send, I'm aware of the risks. Triple texting is a gamble, a move that could easily be seen as too eager, or worse, desperate. But the potential reward, the chance of deepening our connection, outweighs the fear of rejection.

Unbeknownst to me, Ernesto's reception of these messages unfolds under the watchful eye of his mother. At home, Ernesto, still living with his family, often leaves his phone unattended, a habit born from a life less tethered to the digital world. It's during one of these moments that his mother, her curiosity piqued by the frequent notifications, glimpses the screen and reads my messages.

Her disapproval is immediate and visceral. From her perspective, the fervor of my messaging is a red flag, an indication of intentions that she deems inappropriate for her son, especially considering our professional relationship. She sees not the budding connection but a potential complication, a distraction for Ernesto from his responsibilities and the expectations she has for his future.

Ernesto, caught between the burgeoning excitement of our connection and the weight of his mother's disapproval, finds himself at a crossroads. The freedom and thrill of a new relationship are now shadowed by familial expectations and the traditional values he's been raised with.

Meanwhile, I remain oblivious to the drama unfolding on the other end of my messages, caught up in my own whirlwind of emotions and the hope of what might be. The digital divide, once a bridge, now becomes a barrier, as the complexities of our respective lives begin to encroach on the simplicity of our connection.

Chapter 5

Caught in a whirlwind of newfound emotions and desires, I remain blissfully unaware of the storm brewing beyond my sight. Ernesto, the focus of my affectionate advances, faces a predicament far removed from the simple narrative I've constructed in my mind.

In Ernesto's home, the atmosphere is tense, charged with concern and disapproval from his parents. They view my messages, my attempts to bridge the gap between us, not as the innocent overtures of someone smitten but as an unwelcome intrusion. To them, the volume and intensity of my communication cross a line, encroaching upon boundaries they hold sacred for their son's interactions, especially within the professional sphere.

Their perspective, shaped by a blend of protective instinct and traditional values, leads them to a drastic conclusion. They advise Ernesto, perhaps more insistently than advise implies, to take formal action—to file a harassment report at work. This, they argue, is the necessary step to safeguard both his professional integrity and personal well-being. The seriousness with which they view the situation leaves little room for Ernesto's input or hesitation.

Compelled by a mix of familial obligation and the weight of his parents' concern, Ernesto finds himself walking into our workplace, a place that once held the promise of budding connections and exciting possibilities, now a battleground of conflicting emotions and societal norms. He files the report, a document that starkly contrasts the narrative of mutual interest and burgeoning romance I've held onto.

And I, oblivious to the seismic shift in our dynamic, continue my day-to-day life with a hopeful heart, unaware of the impending storm. My thoughts are filled with possibilities, with dreams of what could be with Ernesto, completely ignorant of the reality that our nascent connection, so full of potential, has been irrevocably altered by his actions.

The moment the report is filed, our relationship is no longer just ours to define. It becomes a matter of corporate policy, a subject of scrutiny and judgment by those far removed from the intimate interactions and private moments that have shaped my perception of what Ernesto and I might share. The discrepancy between my hopeful fantasies and the stark reality of the situation sets the stage for a profound and unsettling revelation that will soon come to light.

Chapter 6

As the days pass, my anticipation for what could blossom between Ernesto and me grows, colored by daydreams and the thrill of our covert exchanges. However, this anticipation is abruptly shattered when my boss, with a somber expression that immediately sends a chill down my spine, asks to speak with me privately.

In the stark confines of a conference room, away from the curious eyes and ears of our colleagues, my boss lays out the situation in a tone that oscillates between professional and sympathetically cautious. A harassment report has been filed against me, with Ernesto named as the complainant. The words hang heavy in the air, a surreal indictment against the narrative I had so naively constructed around us.

My initial reaction is one of disbelief. Ernesto, the object of my affections, the man whose glances I thought harbored secret promises and shared understanding, has interpreted my advances as unwelcome, my interest as harassment. The reality of the situation begins to set in, a harsh and unforgiving light cast upon what I had mistaken for mutual attraction.

My boss explains the gravity of the situation, detailing the company's zero-tolerance policy towards harassment and the steps that will be taken to investigate the claims. The process, designed to protect all parties involved, suddenly feels cold and impersonal, a bureaucratic response to what I had believed to be the complexities of human emotion and connection.

As I sit there, trying to process the information, a myriad of emotions wash over me. Confusion and hurt are forefront, mingled with a sense of betrayal. How could Ernesto, who had engaged in our interactions with what I perceived as reciprocal interest, view my actions through such a distorted lens? The thought that his family's influence, particularly the disapproval of his mother, might have driven him to take such a drastic step adds a layer of complexity and sadness to my turmoil.

This meeting, this moment, marks a turning point. The implications of Ernesto's actions ripple outwards, affecting not just the personal realm of unspoken feelings and misinterpreted signals but now endangering my professional standing and reputation. The realization that I have misjudged the situation so grievously leaves me reeling, a mix of self-recrimination and disbelief clouding my thoughts.

I leave the room with a heavy heart, the burden of the impending investigation and the shattered remnants of my fantasies weighing me down. The journey back to my desk, once a path fraught with anticipation of seeing Ernesto, now feels like a walk of shame, each step a reminder of the chasm between perception and reality, between desire and propriety.

The weight of the day's revelations hangs over me like a pall as I mechanically navigate through the remainder of my workday. The vibrant office environment, once a source of stimulation and clandestine joy, now feels oppressive, each glance towards Ernesto's direction a reminder of my misjudgment and its consequences. His cold stare, devoid of any warmth we might have shared in our brief exchanges, seals the chasm that has opened between us. It's a silent rebuke, one that leaves no room for misunderstandings or false hopes.

Returning home feels like entering a refuge from the storm, yet the turmoil within me refuses to abate. Arthur, ever the constant in my life, albeit a source of my quiet discontent, notices the change in my demeanor immediately. His concern is evident in his voice as he asks me what's wrong, a genuine expression of care that I had long thought was dulled by the routine of our lives.

The temptation to confide in Arthur, to lay bare the turmoil that has upended my day, tugs at the edges of my conscience. Yet, the thought of revealing the truth — of admitting my emotional infidelity, my misplaced affections for Ernesto, and the ensuing debacle at work — is too much to bear. The potential for hurt and disappointment in Arthur's eyes holds me back, a barrier I'm not ready to cross.

Instead, I offer a vague excuse, attributing my sullen mood to stress at work, an explanation not entirely untrue yet woefully incomplete. Arthur accepts my explanation with a nod, perhaps sensing that there's more beneath the surface but choosing not to pry. His trust and respect for my privacy, in this moment, feel like both a balm and a rebuke for my recent actions.

The evening passes in a blur, the domestic routines we've established over the years unfolding with a robotic precision that allows me to retreat into my thoughts. The distance between Arthur and me, usually a source of silent frustration, now provides a space for introspection. I find myself grappling with a myriad of emotions — guilt for my actions, sorrow for what might have been with Ernesto, and a newfound appreciation for Arthur's steadfast presence in my life.

In the quiet of our shared life, away from the complexities and temptations that led me astray, I begin to confront the reality of my situation. The fantasy I had constructed around Ernesto, fueled by dissatisfaction and longing for excitement, has crumbled, leaving in its wake a stark reminder of the values and commitments I had sidelined in pursuit of an illusion.

As I lay beside Arthur, the darkness of the night wrapping around us, I'm left to ponder the path forward. The journey back to myself, to the heart of my marriage with Arthur, promises to be fraught with challenges. Yet, in the wake of my recent missteps, it's a journey I recognize as necessary, a step towards healing and perhaps, in time, towards rediscovering the connection that once brought us together.

Chapter 7

Lying in the darkness, the silence of the night envelops me, offering too much space for my thoughts to wander. The stark contrast between Arthur and Ernesto, not just in their looks but in what they represent in my life, becomes the focus of my restless mind.

Arthur, with his familiar features and the comfort of years spent together, has become a symbol of stability. Yet, this stability, once cherished, now feels suffocating, a reminder of the excitement and passion I feel I'm missing. His presence, once reassuring, now serves as a constant reminder of the conventional path I've chosen, one marked by safety but devoid of the sparks that once lit up my heart.

Ernesto, on the other hand, embodies the allure of the unknown, the thrill of potential. His youth and the vibrancy that seems to emanate from him represent everything my marriage with Arthur is not. In my mind's eye, Ernesto is not just a person but a symbol of desire, an escape from the monotony that my life has become. His looks, so different from Arthur's, captivate me, a reminder of the superficial basis of my attraction and the deeper dissatisfaction it masks.

As I dwell on these thoughts, a part of me is acutely aware of the unfairness of comparing Arthur and Ernesto, of conflating physical attraction with the complex realities of marriage and commitment. Yet, the heart wants what it wants, or so the saying goes. My yearning for Ernesto, for the excitement he represents, feels like a betrayal not just of my vows to Arthur but of the person I once believed myself to be.

The realization that I wanted the opportunity to explore this attraction, to potentially cheat on Arthur for a fleeting chance at happiness with a younger, attractive man, fills me with a mix of guilt and defiance. It's a stark admission of my own failings, of the void within that no person, not Arthur nor Ernesto, can fill.

This internal conflict, the struggle between my desires and the reality of my commitments, leaves me feeling isolated, trapped between the life I have and the one I find myself dreaming of. The guilt of these unacted upon desires, coupled with the realization of my willingness to forsake my marriage for a fantasy, is a heavy burden. It's a moment of profound self-reflection, a reckoning with the parts of myself I've tried to ignore.

As dawn breaks, the first light of morning brings no relief, only the stark awareness of the crossroads at which I find myself. The path forward is unclear, shrouded in the complexities of my own making. In this moment of vulnerability, the challenge lies not in choosing between Arthur and Ernesto but in confronting the deeper dissatisfaction within me, a journey that promises to be the most daunting of all.

As the night deepens, my restless mind refuses to quiet, spiraling into a cascade of memories that, until now, I've neatly tucked away in the recesses of my psyche. It's a parade of faces and moments, each carrying the echoes of what could have been—echoes of the men who, like Ernesto, once stirred something wild and untamed within me.

These were men whose appearances could easily rival Ernesto's—each of them striking in their own right, with smiles that promised adventure and eyes that seemed to peer into my very soul. They were snapshots of potential: a series of could-have-beens that I never allowed to evolve into something more profound. Each relationship, if it could even be called that, was marked by my reluctance to commit, a fear of entangling my life with another in a way that could not be easily undone.

As I drift from one memory to the next, I recognize a pattern in my past, a cycle of attraction and withdrawal. There was always an excuse, a reason to hold back—too young, too free, too afraid of losing myself in the whirlwind of romance and passion. And yet, beneath these justifications lay a deeper truth: a hunger for connection and an equal terror of what it might cost.

These men, each in their way, offered glimpses into paths not taken, roads that might have led me away from the life I now find myself questioning. And as I ponder these lost opportunities, I realize that my attraction to Ernesto, and the fantasy I built around him, is not just about him. It's a manifestation of a longing I've suppressed for years—the desire for passion, for a connection that consumes, for a love that challenges and elevates.

Yet, with each of these past flirtations, I chose safety over uncertainty, the known over the unknown. And in doing so, I landed in a marriage that, for all its stability, lacks the fire I've secretly craved. Arthur, for all his virtues, has become the embodiment of my fear of commitment to a passion that might just as easily burn as warm.

The realization is bittersweet, a mixture of regret for what I've pushed away and a newfound understanding of my own heart's desires. As dawn creeps through the curtains, casting a soft light on the life I've built, I'm left to wonder whether the dreams of passionate encounters with men like Ernesto are just that—dreams—or if they're signposts, guiding me toward a truth about myself I've yet to fully embrace.

Chapter 8

Months have passed since the tumultuous events that unfolded at work, each day blending into the next as I've tried to navigate the complexities of my emotions and the realities of my life. The office, once a battlefield of my own making, has returned to a state of normalcy, though the undercurrents of my actions and their repercussions still occasionally ripple through my days.

On a seemingly ordinary afternoon, I decide to step away from the confines of my routine, seeking solace in the simple act of enjoying lunch alone at a nearby cafe. It's a small attempt at self-care, a momentary retreat from the demands of work and the lingering shadows of my personal turmoil.

As I sit at a table outside, sipping on my coffee and absently watching the world go by, a familiar figure catches my eye. It's Ernesto, unmistakable even from a distance, his presence as magnetic as ever. But he's not alone. With him is a woman, petite, with dark hair and dark eyes, her laughter light and carefree as she leans into him. They share a closeness that speaks of intimacy, of a shared history that I am not a part of. Her name, though I don't know it, might as well be written across my heart as a reminder of what I've lost, what I never truly had. Jova, he calls her, and the name stings like a slap.

The sight of them together, so evidently happy and in tune with each other, is a stark contrast to the fantasies I had allowed myself to indulge in. The reality of Ernesto, of his life moving forward without me, of choices made and paths taken that exclude me, hits hard. It's a visceral reminder of the consequences of my actions, of the emotional havoc I wreaked not just on my own life but on others' as well.

The pain of this realization is sharp, a tangible ache in the pit of my stomach. It's not just the loss of Ernesto, but the loss of the possibility he represented—a possibility that was, perhaps, never truly mine to claim. The fantasy of what could have been with him dissolves under the harsh light of this reality, leaving behind a residue of regret and what-ifs.

As I watch them walk away, wrapped up in their own world, a world where I have no place, the finality of it all settles in. Ernesto's happiness, so evident in his demeanor and the way he interacts with Jova, is a clear sign that life goes on, with or without my participation in his story.

Returning to my untouched lunch, the flavors now tasteless against the backdrop of my epiphany, I'm left to confront the truth of my situation. The journey back to myself, to understanding my desires and fears, and to repairing the damage done to my marriage with Arthur, is mine alone to undertake. The encounter, as painful as it is enlightening, serves as a catalyst for this introspection, a necessary step towards healing and moving forward.
