Desire: Part 4

“Don’t forget what I told you.”

“Okay, Ma.”

Mahogany gave a look of irritation to Desire’s comment. For Desire it made the comment that much more funny.

The time had finally come. She saw her man and now was the time to claim him. But she had to be slick about it. She had to make him notice her without him notice that she was noticing him. Now the question was, How was she going to do it.

“Hey Melba, could you go over to that very attractive dude over there, with the dreads and see if he wants a dance?”

“Why won’t you go?”

“I would but, look at me.”

Desire was telling no lie. She was still dressed in street clothes not exactly ready to dance for anyone.

“What’s so special about him?”

“Girl, can’t you see I’m trying to look out for you! He tips really well. You might wanna go over the before another girl gets to him.”

Desire’s real reason for sending the girl over was to see if he would ask for her or just get the dance. So as Desire watched their interaction intently, she saw Melba walking back over to her, and was eager to find out what happened.

“What happened?”

“You knew that was gonna happen, didn’t you?”

“I don’t know what you’re talking about. Knew what was gonna happen?”

“Yeah, what ever Desire. You better be happy I like you.”

“Why? What did he say?”

“He said he doesn’t want a dance if it’s not from you. Also he wants you to come over and talk to him.”

“How did he even see me?”

“I don’t know. But he said he’s been watching you since you walked through the door.”

“Damn! Stalker.”

“You better hurry up and get over there, before he looses interested.”

“In me? Never that.”

With that she sauntered over to him, trying to not show her excitement of seeing him again.

She made sure to let him greet her first, because she wanted to catch his tone. Also she didn’t want to come of to eager.

“So… how have you been beautiful?”

“You know just trying to make something out of this life.”

“I heard you and your O’l Girl broke up. Her loose, but hopefully my gain.”

“Is that why you want me? Because you think it’s gonna be easy to get me!”

“No, not at all. I have been wanting you since I started coming to this club. I never pursued you because I was trying to respect your relationship, and I wasn’t sure if you were in to guys.”

“Wow! I’m sorry. I had no idea.”

“It’s fine. Side note: I would really like to take you out some time. You think that would be all right?”

“Yeah, I don’t see why not.”

“Just incase I get caught up and forget to call, let me give you my number.”

“I got it.”

“From who?!”

“Don’t worry, I have my sources.”

“No. I need to be worried. What if this person ends up giving my number to a psycho?”

“Rest assured they won’t. The only reason they gave it to me is because they no me personally.”

“Now you got me curious.”

“All in do time Ms. Monique.”

Desire was caught of guard; How did this man know so much about her and she knew little to nothing about him?

“Oh, I guess that same person gave you my real name too, huh?”

“Yeah. Like I said, I’ve been watching you for a while. Waiting for the chance to make you mine.”

“I’m gonna let you know, it’s not gonna be easy.”

“I’m well aware.”

Part 5 Going up tomorrow.
