“I’m glad to know, you aren’t lazy like the rest of the men here.”
“Never that, Sweetheart. When I know what I want, I work hard to get it.”
“So what are your plans for me?”
“I rather show you then tell you.”
“Oh, really? What did you have in mind?”
“For starters if you’re able to get off tonight; I would love to take you some where quiet, where we could get to know each other.”
Desire was ready for the bullsh*t. Which was exactly what she thought he was trying to through her way.
“Oh, you mean some where quiet like your apartment?” At that time she really wanted to see what was on his mind, so she played along and pretended to flirt, as if that’s what she wanted.
“No. Not yet. Like I said, I want to get to know you, not your body. There will be plenty of time for that.”
Desire felt at ease to know f*cking her wasn’t the number one thing on his to do list.
“So, where are we going?”
“I thought maybe we could grab a bit to eat, and after that….. the rest is up to you.”
“Oh, okay. You sure you can handle what I throw out?”
“No. But I’m willing to try.”
“Well before we go any further, let me ask you a question. All I ask is that you be honest with me.”
“What is it about me that you find most attractive? And, What made you want to pursue me?”
“Wow! Isn’t that the same question, just asked in a different way?”
“No.” Desire gave him a blank stare, while waiting for him to answer both questions.
“You don’t play no games, huh?”
“No. Especially if me and you become a thing, I gotta know what I’m walking into.”
“I understand…. Well, like I said before; you don’t look like you belong here. You seem educated, and you have a certain class and confidence you carry yourself with that makes you stand out more than then the rest of the women here.”
“Thanks for noticing. But in no way think because you haven’t seen me get ignit’, that I won’t. Because there’s a lot of that in me too.”
“Oh, I don’t doubt it. But you know when to let it out. That’s the difference between you and them…
So you think you can get tonight off?”
“Of course. The question is: Do you think you can make it worth my wild?”
“I know I can.”
“Well, okay. Let’s go.”
Desire had no clue how the night was gonna pan out; but she was ready for whatever was gonna be thrown her way. It didn’t help that the attraction between the two was undeniable.
“You got all your stuff?”
“No, not quite. Give me a minute I’ll be right back.”
Knowing Mahogany was going to be completely against her going out with her beautiful stranger; she braced herself for the tongue lashing she was about to receive.
“Aye girl, I’m on my way out.”
“What you mean? You just got here!”
“I know. But something came up; if you know what I’m saying.”
“Oh, yeah. I definitely know what you’re saying. All I know is, you bet not give him no puss!”
“That’s the furthest thing from my mind, right now.”
“I bet it is…. Des, I just want you to know, the only reason I look out for you is because I love you and care about you.”
“I know. I love you too. But, know I’m not gonna have sex with him, just because me and Sheila broke up. I know that’s what you’re thinking.”
“I never said that.”
“You didn’t have too. Every since I started working here you have been like the big sister I never had. So, I’ve always known that whatever you say or do is only going to be in my best interested. That’s why I love you so much. But let me go, before he starts to get impatient.”
“Let that mother*cker wait!”
“Hahaha, I’ll call you when I get home.”
“Make sure you do that; because I don’t want to have to F*CK NOBODY UP!!!”
Mahogany said, while making sure she was loud enough for him to hear her. Desire said nothing, just gave an over the shoulder smile as she turned to leave.
“Come on let’s go.”
“Before we go, I need you to tell me something.”
“What do you wanna know?”
“What’s my name?”
Why do you ask?”
“Because, the whole time we were talking you never said it. I just wanted to make sure I’m not putting effort into someone who’s not planning on putting the same effort into me.”
“Do you think I make it a habit to go out with strangers?!”
“I’m not saying that. I just had to make sure you at least took the time to learn my name.”
As he finished his sentence they arrived at the most beautiful car Desire had ever laid eyes on; a white 2020 Rolls-Royce Wraith Coupe, with leather peanut butter interior.
“Not to change the subject, but…. What do you do?”
“Well, to be honest, I have plenty of things I dibble and dabble in. All of which help me to afford to live the life style I choose.”
“You still haven’t answered the question.”
“I know. And I’m going to stay away from answering the question until I feel like I can trust you and we’re on a deeper level.”
“Well, that’s all fine and dandy. But I’m not about to be dating somebody that sales. You not about to have me sitting up in somebody jail cell; waiting for Big Bertha to jump on me because I look good enough to eat. I’m to fine to be in jail! And I’m not finna do it! Not for you or anybody else!”
Before she knew it, Desire was in a full on tantrum at the thought of possibly going to jail.
“Baby, just calm down. There is nothing for you to worry about. My business ventures are completely legal.” Although he was able to calm her down, he couldn’t help but display his confusion for her sudden tantrum. Which almost made him rethink going out with her.
“I’m sorry Klaus. But you have to understand, where I come from females go to jail for their men everyday. That’s one thing I promised myself; that I would never serve someone else’s time.”
“Oh okay, now I understand why you flipped out the way you just did.”
“Yeah, I want you to be crystal clear on the fact of me being a ride or die. But I’m not gonna build you up to tear myself down. I rather be alone, if it ever came to that.”
“I completely understand, and I would never want you to do anything that wasn’t in your best interest.”
“You know what? Let’s just get on something a little lighter. How about I get to know a little about you before I unload my whole life story on you.”
“No, it’s fine. I kind of wanted to here more.”
“We’ll have plenty of time for that. But first I want to hear about you.”
“Well,… I have a son. I’ve been married once. Me and my Son’s Mom don’t really see eye to eye.”
“A lot. But the biggest thing is… we grew apart. She wanted things I didn’t want; and I wanted things she didn’t want.”
“I wanted an open relationship. That was something she was willing to try; at first.”
“So what happened?”
“We tried it a couple of times. I thought she was enjoying it, but over time I realized that it was breaking her heart, seeing me have sex with different women.”
“Were you one of those men who are okay with your woman havin sex with another woman, but gets pissed when she shows interest in wanting more dick than just the one you’re providing her?”
“Nah, not at all. I told her she was free to have sex with whom ever she chose, and she did for a while. But I guess she only did it to make me happy and sometimes make me jealous.”
“Why do you say that?”
Because, she would come home sometimes bragging about the next dudes d*ck and how good the sex was. You know; trying to get a reaction out of me. But, I wouldn’t bite. I guess it didn’t bother me as much as she hoped it would.”
“Are you still into having a relationship like that?”
“To be honest, I’m not exactly sure what I’m open to, at the current moment.”
“I just want to clarify, why things didn’t workout between you and her.”
“You only heard a little snippet of my life with her, and suddenly you think you’ve got the answers?!”
“Klaus, please don’t take offence. I just wanted to provide you with a little insight to the way most of us women think.”
“Okay, I’m listening.”
“Things probably didn’t work out for you all because all she wanted was you and you wanted other women.”
“See,… that’s the thing with you women. You think just because I choose to have sex with random women, that my feelings are also attached to them. That in no way is the case. I just liked sleeping with a different woman a couple times a week. Is that so wrong? If she was able to get past that, maybe we would have worked things out and still been together right now.”
