OUOTE OF THE DAY
"In politics, if you want anything said ask a man. If you want anything done, ask a woman."
When I woke up this morning I felt empty. My head was pounding and my eyes were red and puffy from all my crying. I never thought my body could produce so many tears. Even when my mother died I didn't cry as hard as I did last night.
Mom, I tried so hard not to end up like you and here I am, jobless with no money, two kids, a fail marriage, and a broken heart, just like you. How did this happen? I just don't understand. I gave him everything. Anything he ever wanted out of me I did my best to give it to him. We were happy, the kids were happy, everything was perfect. So how did it get to this? How did I let my husband slip away?
Maybe he just got bored. I should have change my appearance, cut my hair or dye it; lose some of this left over baby weight. God please just tell me what I did wrong and I'll change it. I don't care what I have to do, just please let me fix things; let me go back to my happy family.
I feel my bed shift a little. I turn and look at my girls sleeping soundly next to me. After they had finish their dinner both of them came looking for me and found me curled up into a ball crying. My poor babies tried to comfort me but I just couldn't stop crying. Seeing me cry made them cry and eventually we all huddle up on my bed and cried ourselves to sleep.
Why David? Why now? Your daughters love you, they need you, and I need you. I feel tears start to gather in my eyes once again. How can I still cry when I shed so many tears last night? No LaTae, you will not cry, not while you babies are in the same room with you. You will get up, get yourself together, and get out of this house.
I nod my head once and the get out of my bed. I don't care what my sisters are doing, I need to talk to them now; jobs be damned.
I went to my kitchen to pick up my house phone and dial the babysitter's number. After the third ring she answers.
"Hello, Jane is that you?... Good morning to you too……..No I'm fine but there been a family emergence and I need you to watch the kids, is that alright with you?... Thank you so much Jane, what time will you be here?...11:30 will be fine thank you…..Alright see you then, bye." I say and then hang up the phone.
I glance at my clock. It's already 10:34 so that gives me an hour to cook breakfast, call my sister and get dressed. I pick up my house phone and call Faith.
"Hello." I hear her say, her voice sounds groggy. I must have woken her up.
"Faith it's me LaTae. I know you have work today but I need to talk to you and Lexi. It's important." I tell her making sure to stress the important part.
"LaTae, what's wrong; what's going on?" I hear Faith say her voice now sounds alert. What should I say to her? Should I tell her what happened last night or should I just wait until I see her?
"Hello LaTae, are you still there?" Faith asks, taking me away from my thoughts.
"Yea I'm here." I tell her. She lets out a deep breath.
"LaTae, are you ok? What's wrong? Did something happen?" she's worried; I can hear it in her voice. I open my mouth to tell her what happen but then I feel tears once again start to form in my swollen eyes and I just sigh.
"Faith please, I need to talk to you and Lexi, in person. I don't want to say it over the phone." I tell her.
"Alright, where do you want to meet at?" she asks.
"Meet me at mom's house by 11:45." That should give her some time to get ready.
"Okay, but I can't stay long; I have to present the house today."
"That's fine. Can you do me a favor and call Lexi for me. I need to start cooking and getting the kids ready."
"Sure. I'll call you when I'm on my way to mom's house."
"Thank you, bye."
"Bye." She says and then we hang up. I close my eyes and bring my left hand to my chest. Please let me make it through this day. Please.
WARNING: there are touchy, kissing stuff in this part of the chapter. Personally I don't think it's that bad but just in case, you have been warned!
Ugh, who the hell dares to call me while I'm having the best sleep of my life? Whoever it is better have a damn good reason as to why their calling me.
"What the fuck do you want?" I rudely ask. I am so not a morning person.
"Well hello to you too sunshine." I hear a women's voice say after giggling. "I see after all these years you're still not a morning person." The voice says.
I look at my phone to see who I'm talking to. It's Michelle.
"Michelle, why are you calling me so early in the damn morning?" I ask.
"Early? Sweetie it's already 10:30." I hear her say.
"To me 10:30 is still early. I'll call you when I wake up." I tell her.
"Fine, but you better call me." Michelle demands.
"I will, I promise. Goodbye Michelle." I hang up my phone without even waiting for her response and then toss it to the side.
I turn around and snuggle up to the warm body of Javier. His strong arm automatically wraps around my waist and pulls me closer to him. Mmm I love how he reacts to me. It's like his natural reflex to pull me closer when I shift to far away. My eyes start to feel heavy and I start to drift back to sleep; in jay's arms.
My eyes snaps open.
Oh shit. I'm in Jay's arms. What the hell am I doing still in jay's arms? I must have fallen asleep after we, after we, uh uh I need to get out of here.
I start trying to wiggle my way out of Javier's embrace but soon realize, getting away, wasn't going to be as easy as it sounds. Every time I squirm against Jay's hold, he just tightens he's grip. Why does he have to be so damn strong?
As I continue to struggle with my person body blanket, I hear my phone start to ring. My body goes still and I pray Jay doesn't wake up from the sound of my phone. I hear him mumble something but his eyes never open. I stay still for a few minutes to make sure Jay's still sleeping.
Hmm, if he can sleep through two phone calls and all of my wiggling, then maybe I could just left he's arm up and ease my way out. I put my left hand on his wrist and my right hand grabs his biceps. Then I gather all my strength and lift his arm up.
As soon as I have Jay's up in the air my cell phone starts ringing again. I freeze and tighten my hold on Jay's arm. Damn just my luck, I'm so going to kill whoever it is that keeps calling.
Javier starts to move a little but he still doesn't open his eyes. Man this boy can sleep through anything. I slow place his arm back down to his side. I continue to lie down on the bed until I hear my phone stop ringing.
I look up at Jay. His body is still facing me but his head is buried in his pillow. I smile; he looks so cute right now. It's too bad we had to meet like this; I would have loved to get to know you better. I stroke his check and then kiss it.
And just like before, Jay's muscular arm wraps itself around my waist almost automatically. That's not even the worst part. No, the worst part is now I'm looking straight into Jay's chocolate brown eyes. Damn it.
"Hey." He says giving me a small smile. I don't say anything instead I just rest my head on his chest in defeat. Ugh, why me? This is just my luck, man I really need to get out of here.
"Are you okay?" he asks. I nod my head yes but I'm not really sure. On one hand I'm piss that he woke up before I could leave, and on the other hand I'm glad he did.
"I'm going to go take a shower. Feel free to go to the kitchen and get you something to eat. Mi kitchen is sue kitchen." He tells me. I just smile at him. He doesn't move right away, instead he takes a minute to study my face. What he was looking for, I don't know, but it whatever it was it must have been good because soon he gave me two kisses on the cheek and one on my lips.
He's kisses are so sweet; it just makes me want to have more. I lean in to kiss him on his chin but he moves he face and now our lips are on each other's again.
My heart starts racing and I feel him shift his body so that it hovers over me. The kiss is slow and gentle.
I open my mouth and allow his tongue to slip in. Our tongues collide together and begin to dance.
I wrap my arms around Jay's neck and pull him closer.
Jay's hands are going up and down my body and I feel heat start to rise with in me.
Every touch sends heated chills down my spine. I want more.
His kisses are addicting. It's like his lips are teasing me, playing with me, inviting me to have more.
I shouldn't be here making out, I should be home working, but with every caress; every touch I feel all logic leave my brain.
All I want is Jay.
Our once innocent kiss has turn into one of lust.
The fact that both of us are still naked form last night and our burning skin is rubbing against each other makes it that much hard to concentrate on anything but him.
I feel his member slightly press up against me and I know he can feel how ready I am. I hear him grunt a little. I rotate my hips to make him feel me better and he bites down on my lip.
Jay breaks the kiss to have his lips travel down my neck.
I have no idea why I was trying to leave this morning but man I'm glad I didn't.
Before we could take this any farther, my phone, the source of all evil, starts to ring again.
Jay stops his attack on my neck and rest his head on my shoulder, then sighs.
"I guess I'll be taking a cold shower now." he says and chuckles. I let out a breath in frustration and then grab my phone.
"What?" I say, basically yelling at whoever was on the line.
"Well aren't you just a ball of joy this morning." I roll my eyes recognizing that it's my little sister Faith.
"I would be a lot happier if you hadn't call." I say and then look down at Jay. Way more happier.
"What's gotten into you this morning?" Wrong question dear sister, more like, what hasn't gotten into me. Ugh stupid, stupid, phone. I should have put it on vibrate.
I feel Jay start to get off of me. "I'll be in the shower." He says. I nod my head and try to keep the disappointment out of my eyes.
"Umm Lexi, was that a man's voice I just heard?" I hear Faith ask me. I groan and pull the covers around me to make up for the lost of Jay's body heat.
"How the hell am I suppose to know what you heard Faith? It's your ears you tell me." I say.
"Don't be such a smart ass Lexi. Anyway, the reason why I called is because there something wrong with LaTae. She wants us to meet at mom's house around 11:45."
"What's wrong with her?" I ask.
"I don't know, she wouldn't tell me. She just kept saying she needed to talk to us." Faith tells me.
I sigh, "Alright then, what time is it?"
"It is now 11:07. You better hurry up." She says.
"Yea yea, bye." I say and then hang up. I look across Jay's room and see his bathroom door. I can hear the water, so he's still in the shower.
Maybe I can slip on my clothes and leave before he gets out. Wait my car not here. I went to the club with Michelle and then came here with Jay. Damn it. I can't have Javier take me to my mom's house.
I frantically pick up my phone and dial Michelle's number.
"Hello." Thank god she answered.
"Hey Michelle, it's me, what are you doing?" I ask her.
"Lexi, Girl if all you had to do is sleep for thirty more minutes we could have just stayed on the phone earlier." She says.
"Michelle just tell me what you are doing." I tell her, making sure my voice sounded irritated.
"You got some last night, didn't you?" she ask.
"Michelle!" I shriek.
"And now you want me to come pick you up because you don't have a way home," I don't say anything and then I hear her chuckle. Why did I call her?
"Lucky for you, I am at the coffee shop around the corner from Jay's house. So you just put on some clothes and I be there and two minutes." She tells. You just got to love that best friend of mines.
"Thanks Michelle, you're a life saver." I tell her.
"I know." She says and then we hang up.
I practically jump of the bed and then rush to my clothes and put them on. As soon as I'm done getting dressed I hear Michelle honk her horn.
I look at Jay's bathroom door again. Maybe I should say goodbye, but then again, it's not like we planned on having a relationship. It was a onetime thing and that's it.
So instead of walking into the bathroom and saying goodbye, I walk out the front door knowing I would never see him again.
I know I heard a man's voice in the background. So Lexi got her a man now, huh? Nah, I doubt it. It's most likely just a new friend with benefits. Lexi can be so cold heart when it comes to having a relationship with men. I swear she'll be alone for the rest of her life.
I guess I better get up and take I shower. Slowly pull the blankets off of me and get out of my bed, the bed that I should have shared with my fiancé last night. Ugh, why does he's job have to be so demanding.
I open my bathroom door and then turn on the lights. Sitting right next to the sink is a small box, wrap in purple gift wrap and a blue bow on the top.
My baby may not have been able to make it home but he sure does know how to make up for it. I start to untie the bow but I stop when I hear my front door open.
I set the gift down in walk into my small apartment living room. My eyes get big when I see my fiancé walk in with some more gift. He puts them on the couch and then comes and gives me a hug.
"Hey." He says.
I look up at him, still in his arms, I'm start giggling like a little school girl with a hug smile on my face.
"What are all the gifts for?" I ask still smiling.
"Just wanted to show how much I love you and how sorry I am for leaving you a lone last night." He says and then bends down and kisses me on the cheek.
"Let's go out and eat for breakfast." He tells me. I drop my smile and frown. Damn LaTae, perfect time to need me.
"I can't, me and my sisters are meeting up at my mom's house this morning." I tell him.
He sighs and then shakes his head. "How about you forget about your sisters and just come with me?" he suggests.
I look up questionably at him and walk out of his embrace.
"What do you mean forget about them? They're my sisters, I can't just forget about them." I tell him. He rolls his eyes.
"Oh please Faith. You told me that you and your sisters hadn't talk for five years and if it wasn't for the death of your mother you guys still wouldn't be talking."
I glare at him. "You're right we didn't talk for five years and sisters shouldn't be that way. That's why now that are mother is dead, we're trying to get along and stay together."
"So what, I have to just sit back and let your sisters have you all the time while I'm stuck in the dust?" He asks. I can tell he's getting frustrated.
"I'm saying that I need you to bear with me. This whole sisterly thing is new to me too okay."
He doesn't say anything; instead he just walks into the kitchen. I fall him.
"You can come with me to my mom's house," He turns to look at me with a raised eye brow. "I mean sure it would be boring for you but at least we will be together." I say.
"No, you go with your sister and I'll just have to take you to lunch." He says giving me a small smile. My frown only gets bigger.
"I don't think that's lunch is a good idea. I have to present the house today." Now it's his turn to frown.
"About your job, I want you to quit." He says.
"What?" I yell. Me? Quit my job? Hell no, that's out the question.
"I got a promotion." He says.
"Well that's great for you but what does that have to do with me quitting my job?" I say trying to keep my voice from getting any louder.
"This promotion means that I'm going to be spending more time in the office. With my job and yours we will hardly get to see each other. So seeing as my job pays more and will be able to take care of both of us, there is no need for you to work. That way when I have time for you, there will be nothing stopping us from being together." He smiles like what he just said genius.
I laugh at him like he's crazy. How could he even think I would agree with that?
"Sweetie, it's clear that you just lost you mind. So I'm going to fill you in on a little something. I am not, I repeat, am not going to quit my job. And that is the end of it." I tell him and then fold my arms across my chest.
"We'll talk about it later, okay." He says. I shake my head no.
"We are not going to talk about it later because that is the end of it. I'm not quitting my job." And before he can say anything else I start walking back into my bed room so I can take a shower and get ready to leave. The nerve of him, I'll be damned if I quit my job.
