Backseat Battle 3 -- What Would You Do?
Now, if you haven't read it, go do so, and then come back........
Alright, now that everyone here has read Backseat Battle 2, let's get to it.
The story ends with a cliff-hanger of a sort. Mark storms out after catching Brenda and Samantha together. Then, when Brenda walks back inside after having tried to catch Mark, she is slammed against the door and forced into another passionate kiss by Samantha.
All of that being the case, if YOU were given the power to pick up the tale where I left off, and be the one to write Backseat Battle 3 (which could start either exactly where 2 ended or days, weeks, months, or even years later, where would you take it?
Oh, that's interesting. How would I continue?
A few weeks later at any rate. Brenda tries to save her marriage. She tried to explain to Mark how it happened, tried to explain her motives and reasons and that she did it for him. Of course her husband can't understand it, but since he loves his wife he wants to give her a chance. And he promised to stay away from Samantha.
But Samantha has another goal in the meantime. Until Mark had interrupted her fight, she had been defeated. But after he had left the house, she wanted to continue the fight. Brenda was broken at the time and it had been easy for Samantha to take advantage of it.
But she was not satisfied with it. She noticed the dismissive looks Mark threw at her. She knew she wouldn't get him anymore. It annoyed her how He tried to save his marriage and stayed with the woman she had apparently defeated. And it annoyed her even more that Brenda seems to find her way back to her old self-confidence.
Meanwhile she only wanted to destroy this marriage, whatever it took to destroy Brenda finally. She provoked the woman wherever she could with phone calls, letters and emails. She challenged her again and again to a new fight. She was friendly to Brenda's son and gave him sweets just so he could tell his mother how nice she was to him. Brenda could hardly tell him what a cruel game Samantha was pulling him into.
Brenda knew what her rival was up to. And she wanted to fight Samantha again. Every cell in her body longed for it. But she wasn't allowed to risk it. She was already too close to a catastrophe. Brenda kept all the messages and letters secret from Mark because he would misunderstand and leave her for good.
But when Brenda noticed Samantha manipulating her own son, she knew she had to end it for good. She had to break Samantha, and end this story forever. It might ruin her marriage, but if she did nothing, it would destroy her family for sure.
She sent Samantha an email with a place and time. There they would be alone and undisturbed. There they would have their final battle, and Brenda swore to herself that her rival would perish there. Samantha agreed. She would break Brenda, and then send Mark a message, ruining her rival for good.
Well, that would be it for now. What do you, and the other readers, think of this?
Winner who lost is stopped with a kiss at Door by Loser who has won.
Brenda fresh from her victory over Samantha but ultimately lost as her husband noticed all and left her leaving Brenda in shambles.
Samantha who lost against Brenda but is rejoiced as indirectly it has resulted in Mark leaving Brenda. Their earlier agreement is now void , Bragging Rights are ON and she can pursue him again
This reality struck both of them as a lightening during the kiss as now it's back to square one again. Out of their logical minds, Brenda now want to channel her fury against Samantha as she holds her accountable for this while Samantha wants to channel hers on Brenda for earlier defeat .
This results in a violent sex fight after the kiss as both decide to settle dispute then and there (Anger fuels the mutual hatred and they forgot all moral) leading to another fight....
Months later, Mark in his new apartment is surprised to find Brenda moving in near his apartment and only later to find out Samantha too has moved in nearby on same day... Little does he know that both still have unfinished business with each other and their fight leading to this month hasn't resolved anything and Mark is very much up for Grabs for either one of them...
Hmm, I would start it a couple of days later when Brenda convinces Mark to come back home and work things out. They talk and talk and talk. It is hard for Brenda to convince Mark, what he saw, wasn't actually what he saw. Brenda has a hard time explaining that she wasn't having lesbian sex with their teen baby sitter but it was actually a fight. Things are tense around the house for the next couple of days. They consider marriage counseling. though Brenda tries to convince Mark against it, fearing the humiliation of why they are having difficulties with their union to a therapist.
Things go entirely off the rails when Samantha shows up the Mark and Brenda's house when Brenda wasn't there. In a total high school teen bitch move, Samantha plays the victim card all the while she tells Mark through teary eyes that Brenda had been stalking her and then attacked her the night Mark went to console his friend. Samantha explains that Brenda had overpowered her and was raping her when Mark walked in. She explains that she was scared of Brenda and was trying to do what Brenda wanted her to do to save herself.
After that I'm good with whatever happens. Does Mark believe Samantha and leaves Brenda? Does Brenda go berserk and try to kill the teen? All I know, is there should be an epic reckoning after that. Is third time the charm for Samantha and she finishes ruining Brenda's life? Does Brenda beat the teen so bad that Samantha admits the truth in front of Mark. Does Brenda convince Mark to hide in the shadows...or another room to see the real version of Samantha? Oh and as he waits he can finally see that it actually was a type of combat the two were engaged in and is he turned on or does it matter?
Oh there are so many ways it could go.
