The two of them had always hated each other. Their rivalry was the stuff of legend in their small town. When one had something, the other had to have it too, just to take it away from her rival.
That had always been how it worked with boyfriends. When one dated a guy, the other would work to steal him away. Inevitably she would. But since she only wanted the guy because the other had him, the relationship wouldn’t last long. Both would wind up single. But that didn’t matter, because at least she made the other one miserable.
Pete was well aware of their antics, and knew exactly what to expect when he started flirting with one.
At first, she wasn’t too interested. But then the other saw that he was interested, and decided she had to steal his affections. Which made the first one suddenly take a real interest. Soon both were actively trying to seduce him, just to win and keep him from the other.
Pete refused to choose between them though. He refused to let either one of them “win”. Which only served to drive their rivalry to new heights. All he had to do was suggest “I’d like the kind of girl who…” to one of the girls, and soon enough she’d be doing exactly that. And then the other would have to match it. Both were desperate to simply have what the other seemingly wanted.
Yesterday, he casually mentioned to one of them “I’ve always wanted a nudist girl.”
That morning she came by completely naked. “Yeah I’ve always wanted to be a nudist,” she said. “Not like that bitch!” referring to her rival.
Of course, her rival saw this and immediately did the same thing herself.
Pete couldn’t be more pleased with how things were going… and he had no intention of stopping it any time soon.
