“I know, Sophia. My entire body vibrates when I’m around him and my stomach fills with butterflies. I’ve never felt that way with anyone and it scares the crap out of me. I tried to push him away, but he didn’t let me.”
“You must have some fine shit.”
I choked on my milk and it started to come out my nose as I wiped my face. “What in the heck are you talking about, woman?”
“Well, you tried to get rid of him and I know you usually hold true to your plan, so I know you didn’t relent first and he came to you. Most guys would just say f**k that and walk away without looking back, but you must have something special that made him come back for more. Huh, who knew?” she giggled.
“Shut it, whore. We had a long talk about relationships and love when he brought me home. He’s been hurt before and hasn’t had a real girlfriend in years.”
“We’ve all been hurt before. It’s part of love. If you never hurt, then you’ve never truly been in love before, Suzy. What happened to him?”
“His fiancé died,” I said, putting my cup in the dishwasher. I leaned against the counter and rested the phone against my shoulder.
“Wow, that’s horrible. I couldn’t image losing Kayden. I’d be a complete and total mess. I don’t know if I’d love anyone the way I love him. I couldn’t allow myself to love anyone that way again if he was ripped from my life.”
“Yeah, I just wonder if he’ll be able to make room in his heart for me. I’ll always be competing with her for his love, I’m afraid.”
“It’s not a competition, sweetheart. There’s room for both of you. He’s taking a risk with you – just give him time to deal with his feelings. Don’t rush into the ‘L’ word.”
“You did with Kayden,” I said, smiling even though she couldn’t see me.
“I know,” she sighed. “I couldn’t imagine anyone else in my life. Kayden was it for me, babe. He ruined me and I could never be without him – I knew that after our first weekend together – it felt like all the planets aligned. I was finally with the man I was meant to be with my entire life.”
“I’m just going to enjoy his glorious body filled with extra holes and pretty pictures. Jesus, girl, you should see his fine ass naked.”
“Did you say ass?” she asked sounding shocked.
“I am an adult, Sophia. I do swear.”
“I think City’s dick stirred your brain and altered your thought pattern. My Suzy sunshine never uses profanity,” she bellowed.
“What am I sucking?” she asked fishing for me to say it.
“Kayden’s dong.” I started laughing at how immature that sounded.
“Listen, whore, no matter what you do – do not f**king say ‘I want to suck your dong’ to City. His hard-on would vanish, as he would fall on the floor in a fit of laughter. It’s not sexy, not at all. Funny as f**k? Yes, but not come here and f**k me talk. Got it?”
“I know. Just wanted to see what you’d say.”
“Silly, girl. Oh, and don’t call it a penis. Use the dirtiest, crudest words you can think of when you speak to him. Men love it dirty and raw. If you can find it in the health teacher’s textbook, avoid it like the plague.”
“Got it. Alright, I’m going to go get ready.”
“Where you going so early? Your ass usually isn’t out of bed before noon and it’s only eleven.”
“I have grocery shopping to do today and I feel like browsing at a couple of stores. I plan to look at all the things I’ll never be able to buy. A girl can dream, right?”
“Grocery shop today and window browse tomorrow. I’m so glad we have a long weekend and I want to go shopping and have a girl’s day out. We need to practice your dirty talk.”
“Don’t you want to stay home with him and Jett?” I asked, walking in my bedroom searching my closet for something to wear.
“Nah, let them have some male bonding time. What time you want to pick me up tomorrow?” she asked.
“I’ll be waiting for you, my pretty.” She cackled as she hung up the phone and I shook my head. Sophia was going to make it a very long day.
“Come on you big pu**y, let’s go inside,” Sophia said, yanking my arm as we sat in the parking lot of Inked. Once Sophia had something in her mind, she was like an Italian woman I knew – totally unbendable.
“Sophia, please. It’s not nice to surprise him at work. What happen with the ‘no cling’ stuff?” I shook my head and put all my weight on the seat.
“It’s not clingy. I want a damn tattoo. I want to surprise Kayden and I never get a chance. I either have the baby or him with me. I’d rather him do it than some stranger. Please get out of the car before I pull you out by your hair.” Her hands were on her hips and she was giving me the pushy teacher look that always cracked me up. Sophia was just as much of a softy as I was, but her look was nastier and usually made people do as they were told.
“Fine, but when it all implodes I’m blaming your bossy butt.” I closed the doors and hit my remote twice, making sure that no one could steal my collection of vintage hip hop cassettes.
Sophia whistled as we approached the door. “This is a nice shop, not like most of the shit ass tattoo places around here.” She grabbed the door handle and my palms began to sweat as my heart pounded in my chest, causing my breathing to grow ragged.
