Mrs. Desario and the Nanny Whore
For the first six months I worked for Margaret DeSario,
I thought she'd hired me to take care of her two preschoolers. I had no cause
to think otherwise. She had ALS and was by then confined to a wheelchair, so
I ended up taking care of her a bit too. Because it was a round-the-clock
job, I couldn't even think of a social life. Not that I minded—my social life
hadn't been all that before and I enjoyed being a pseudo-member of the
family. Plus, living in the secondary suite that was their basement allowed
me to save almost all of my already generous salary.
three-month-review, Mrs. DeSario sang my praises and gave me a raise, so I
had high hopes at our six month meeting that I might get another. It wasn't
as if she and her husband were hurting for money.
But my hopes turned
to alarm when the first thing she said was, "Remember in your interview when
I mentioned being picky and never having kept a nanny beyond three months?"
I tried to imagine what I might have done wrong. "Yes?"
DeSario smiled. "Well, Sandra, I don't want you to suppose I'm any less picky
when I say I'm pleased with your performance so far."
"Thank you," I
replied with a sigh of relief.
"But I'm afraid I still can't keep you
unless you're willing to accept some additional duties. Of course, we'll
increase your pay too."
My relief was over just that fast. I assumed
she wanted me to tend more to her than I had been, but I wasn't a nurse and
anyone could see that she might need one soon. "What did you have in mind?"
She twisted the fingers of both hands amongst one another. "What I'm
going to say will probably be something of a shock to you, so I want your
word beforehand you're not going to overreact and make a scene?"
I agreed, wondering if she was worried about asking me to bathe her or
something like that.
"So you'll listen calmly to my proposal?"
"Good. I want you to seduce my husband."
dropped into a line. "What?"
"You heard me. I want you to have
intimate relations with my husband, with a substantial increase to your
salary, of course."
I tried to blink away my disbelief. "You're
She shook her head. "Not in the least."
eyes narrowed. "You're going to fire me if I don't sleep with your husband?"
She shrugged, then nodded. "Yes."
I leapt from the sofa. "You
can't be serious?!
"Now, now, Sandra," she whispered, bringing the
upright index finger of her right hand to her lips. Her left hand she
extended, with fingers spread and palm downward, motioning that I retake my
seat. "You agreed to listen calmly and not make a scene."
calm did you expect me to be?!"
"I'm sorry you feel that way. I had
high hopes you'd be more open minded."
My heart pounded in my ears
while my psyche tried to sort out what I was hearing. "You thought I'd want
to be your husband's whore?"
"Whore?" With her lips pressed into a
line, she shook her head. "The word has such ugly connotations. Even
call-girl sounds so much classier, don't you think? But in your case I think
an even nobler term would be appropriate. Courtesan perhaps? And you'd be
working for me, not my husband. Don't forget that. He must never know I paid
My jaw fell. "He's not in on this? What makes you think he's
She motioned again with her hand. "Do sit down and
at least humor a dying woman?"
I pulled the back of my skirt to my
knees and returned to the sofa. "Ok. Consider yourself humored."
"You're not welcome," I replied in the calmest tone I
could manage. "This is the most unjust, vulgar thing I have ever heard of.
You hired me to be a nanny, not a whore!"
She laughed. "You think I'm
unfair offering you money to please the man I love in ways I can't?" She
looked downward and ran her splayed fingers from her bosom to her knees.
"This isn't fair." She turned her suddenly moist eyes back to me. "And I
always had in mind extending your duties beyond those of just a nanny."
"Carl hasn't been intimate with me in over a year. He's a
good man, but he has needs I can no longer satisfy. And a year is a long
time. Of course, because he's a good man, he'd never take advantage of you.
That's why I need you to seduce him."
I crossed my arms and leaned
backward. "Why don't you just hire a professional?"
"You mean an
"I'm not letting any disease-ridden
tramp into my home, let alone near my daughters. I need someone I can trust."
"So I'm a disease-free tramp?" I rolled my eyes. "I'm so honored."
"In an odd way, you should be. Carl deserves the best."
mind what I deserve."
"You'll be compensated."
I shook my head.
"You know this is totally illegal?"
"Of course it is," she admitted.
"But you don't seriously expect anyone would believe you if you told them, do
you? Besides, if it was legal, I wouldn't be willing to pay you ten times
what we've been paying you."
I inhaled a crisp breath and sat upright.
"Yes," Mrs. DeSario said with a nod. "I wouldn't want you
to imagine I value your services lightly."
Leaning forward, I planted
my palms on the cushions beside my knees. "How often do you expect me to do
these, uh, services?"
"For that kind of money, anytime he wants."
My gaze dropped to the carpet beneath her wheelchair. What woman hasn't
wondered if she would do it for a million dollars? Of course, it wasn't that
much and it wasn't just one night, but another six months at that rate would
still cover four years of college and then some. I snapped my eyes upward
again. "Can I think about it?"
"Of course." A smile spread across her
face. "Why don't you sleep on it?
