Episode 1: Creole Woman
The Cartiers were throwing a party in their house that rested in the inner part of the bayous of Louisiana; a successful settlement on their part. The Cartiers consisted of Dixon Cartier, a businessman and his beautiful wife Carmen Dereux Cartier; they married 2 years ago and all has not been blessed since then. Why?
I sat and watched from afar as my husband danced and openly flirted with Mattie; some dumb b*tch that he thinks I have no idea who she is AND is currently in some affair with. Now you're probably wondering, 'Why put up with a man who does that?' well as a Creole woman with a family tradition and strong belief in sacred marriage it's my duty as a wife to continue to be by his side..even if I don't love him. My girlfriends Kira and Amel came and sat by me sharing my view in open disgust. "I don't understand how you can just sit there and play it cool? I'd be making a scene in front of all these people" Kira said hotly; "Hey he's having fun..ain't no need to spoil it" I said non chalantly while sipping my wine, "You sure you don't want me to cap his ass? I brought 'Sweet Susan' with me" Amel said referring to her switch blade. "LOL Amel chill and relax and have a flute or two, I'll be back; the guests need ONE of us to check every once in a while" Carmen said setting her champagne glass down, she brushed down her gown and braved a happy face. Carmen then approached family friends Sharon and Jackson Turner, both were lawyers and the second most high paid couple on this side of the Mississippi. "How are you tonight? Ooh Sharon you are glowing tonight" Carmen said rubbing Sharon's small baby bump, "I know..3 months down and got 6 to go" Sharon said looking down happily at her stomach; "You know Carmen we should do a play date sometimes; when are you and.." Sharon's voice dragged off at the end; Carmen gave a small smile before lowering her head. Carmen was having difficulties conceiving and her last pregnancy ended in an unfortunate miscarriage. "Oh hon I'm so sorry--" "No need for apologies, let me know if you need anything" Carmen said patting Sharon on the shoulder. Even if she didn't love Dixon the one thing she ever did want from him was a child. Carmen noticed that the supply of wine bottles was going down and since Dixon had his hands filled with Mattie's ass Carmen had to go down to the carriage house herself to get some more wine.
Carmen carried the lantern and walked out to the carriage house, opening the door and closing it behind her. Even with the lantern the vision was poor and pitch black; Carmen set the lantern down atop of a wooden table and began searching through the bottles of wine. Suddenly she heard fidgeting, almost like whispers and small moans coming from the other side of the carriage house; Carmen set the bottle down and grabbed the lantern picking up the hem of her dress so she wouldn't trip on the train. As she got closer and closer the sounds were then followed with kissing sounds; Carmen held up the lantern towards her to see further into the darkness. To Carmen's surprise someone was having sex inside of the carriage, she cleared her throat to catch their attention. They both looked up, one of them was named Chris who was Kira's oldest nephew; "F-forgive me Mrs. Cartier" Chris said stepping out of the carriage to fix his pants; the girl came out afterwards fixing her bra and hair and to fix up her makeup. "Your aunt must be upset wondering where her nephew is. She'd have a fit if it've been her instead of me catching you" Carmen said with a small smile; "Please don't tell..please?" Chris begged. "Don't worry, this house holds many secrets..yours included," Carmen said walking away; "On the condition that you not bring anymore random young women to fck in my carriage house again." "Promise" Chris said. "Oh and before I forget, wipe off that lipstick on your chin it'll be a dead giveaway" Carmen said walking out with the bottles of wine.
Seeing the sight of catching Chris had made Carmen quite hot and bothered; had she not stopped the episode she would've gladly kicked the young woman out. Carmen returned back inside the house taking the wine bottles to the servants taking her place back on the living room couch where Kira and Amel still sat. "Dang girl what took you so long?" Kira said. "Just a little sidetracked, caught a couple of swans mating near the carriage house." Carmen said; "Yeah well anyways you didn't miss a damn thing Dixon still got that nasty ass heifer dancing the crease out of his pants." Amel said rolling her eyes. Chris soon walked back into the house to the living room where he saw Carmen sitting alongside his aunt Kira and Amel; they locked eyes quickly with a look of fear in Chris's eyes. Carmen placed a finger to her smiling lips making Chris sigh a breath of relief before going into the other room. "Mmmm your nephew Chris sure did grow up to be a fine ass man" Amel said, "Amel I'll karate chop you in the throat if you say that again" Kira said threatingly. "What girl? Lets be honest he's 23 years old about to graduate with a doctors degree" Amel said drinking her flute of wine. "She is right about that I mean when will Chris be able to get Mrs. Right?" Carmen said. "Uh huh and you seem to know my nephew so well huh?" Kira said. "I'm just saying lol no need to get armadillo on me" "LOL I'm just playing with you girl" Kira said. Just then Dixon approached the three women extending his hand out to Carmen.
"Would you, as my beautiful wife, give me the honor of this dance?" Dixon said; Kira and Amel kept looking back at each other like 'Didn't this fool just basically fck some chick in front of his wife just a few minutes ago?' Carmen braved a smile since everyone was watching and took Dixon's hand; he led her out into the middle of the living room and held her closely to him as everyone circled around them. "Are you enjoying the party my love?" Dixon said into Carmen's ear; "Not as much as I enjoyed watching you grind on Mattie" she said back. "And yet you did nothing to stop it now did you?"
Dixon asked. "No honey of course not, it'd give our guests the wrong impression and besides.." Carmen spinned out then back into Dixon's arms "...your reputation is at stake is it not?" she said smartly. "This is true and so is yours love" Dixon replied. "Hence which is why I refuse to stoop down to your standards." she answered. "Touche Carmen Cartier" Dixon said, "To everyone else I'm Carmen Cartier..but at heart I'm Carmen Dereux" she said looking into his eyes. The dance then ended as everyone clapped, Carmen gave a meaningless kiss on Dixon's cheek before excusing herself to the powder room (restroom). She passed by Mattie but leaned into her ear; "Quite a dancer you are..my husband was infatuated with your moves tonight" Carmen said cooly putting a hint of fear into Mattie's heart.
