Femme Fatale

“Listen, Sam, I’m not the type of guy who likes to interfere with another guy’s love life, my friend,” Evan said, “but that lady of yours has you all twisted up in knots.”

“I know, dude, I know,” Sam said. “Ever since I became her boyfriend, I feel like she’s turned me into a total basket case.”

“You knew, Sam, that she had a reputation for chewing up guys and spitting them out,” Evan said.

“Yeah, but I thought I could be the exception. Now I see that I’m just one more casualty.”

“Well, buddy,” Evan said, “all you need is a little willpower. You need to step away and resist her charms if you don’t want to end up twisting in the wind.”

“You’re absolutely right, Evan,” Sam said. “I’m writing that bitch off. I refuse to be just another face in the mob of guys she’s destroyed.”

Sam paused when his phone vibrated. He pulled it out of his pocket, looked at it, looked up at Evan, and said, “It’s her. She texted me and says she wants me to come over to her place right away.”

As Sam stood up, Evan grabbed his arm and reminded Sam of his need to exercise willpower. Sam looked at his best friend and said, “I can’t help myself, dude. She’s my femme fatale.”

    The Femme Fatale such a fascinating creature. I’d say she has him well under control.
