Episode 2(Junk Food)

Nicole and Mona stepped into Happy Burger to grab a fast bite,was a Saturday afternoon,they had just gotten off work.

“Hey isn’t that Darius” asked Mona looking over Nicole’s shoulder.

“Don’t look right away, he’s with some girl”

Nicole smile faded,as she quickly looked behind just in time to see Darius laughing and in deep conversation with a tall,skinny light skin girl.He was so distracted and the restaurant was so full that he didn’t see her. Nicole got red in the cheeks and she began eating quickly.

Mona shook her head in disappointment,

“I don’t know why you put up with this?”

“we had an argument ok,I told him I needed some space”

She was now stuffing her face with fries and pretended she was fine. Mona kept eyeing Darius.

“Space? and he’s already screwing someone else the next day?”

Nicole could die,she began feeling uncomfortable.

“You know what, let’s go”she began putting her food away.

“But we just got here”

“No I wanna leave!”

“Ok,let me atleast use the washroom first” Mona left quickly to use the washroom as Nicole painfully waited.

She pulled out her phone and texted Oscar.As she awaited a reply she felt someone rub her back,she looked up into Darius’s brown eyes.

He had on a huge smile,

“I thought that was you, what’s up?”

“I’m ok,how are you?” She fought to keep her composure.

“I’m good,so how long we doing this space for?”

She looked back at the girl eating her meal,she felt her chest getting hot .

“I don’t know,I see you already moved on”

He looked back at the girl shaking his head,

“Girl,that’s Alice,my old high school buddy,we just catching up,been a minute.”

“Hmm”

“See that business idea I was telling you about, she’s willing to help us start,she got some ideas.”

“Ok,you better not be lying Darius”

“Stupes, I’ll message you the information later.”

He hugged up on her tightly,”Now go on outta here” he said smiling.

“Yea I’m just waiting on Mona”

Mona walked up to them and rolled her eyes at Darius,as she ignored his greeting.

“You ready?”

“Yea, let’s go” Nicole and Mona left without looking back at him.

“what were you guys talking about?did he just hug you?”

Nicole kept her steps steady as she ensured they got far away from Happy Burger as possible.She pulled Mona into a clothing store.

“Girll,that boy lying,he wants me to believe that’s his “friend”,can you believe he said she got business ideas for us”

Mona was confused,

“Business ideas for what??on how to ride him? tell me you did not believe that!?

“I don’t know girl, I just feel something ain’t right,just a few days and he on some date with some girl”

Mona agreed.

Nicole was spending the week at her sisters place,as she sat on her bed, feeling so defeated.She was so lost in her thoughts that she missed the messages on her phone.

They were from Oscar and two from Darius.She listened to Darius’s voice note first,his voice was calm, reassuring,told her all the ideas for the new business,and he gave her he and Alice highschool stories.The message ended on how Alice would supply them with a spot to rent out to start their business.He was excited and wanted her back home so they could discuss further.

Oscar message was telling her he was watching Basketball and and if she wanted to join him,he later changed his mind and Said it was a joke when she didn’t answer.Nicole held the phone against her chest as tears formed at the corner of her eyes,and then rolled down the sides of her face.

To be continued

Episode 1 continues

They had been driving in the rain for what felt like hours and Oscar was trying to wrap his head around this story and why Darius was being now placed on his list of guys he felt was secretly gay.But he Of course kept his thoughts to himself as he tried to be sympathetic to his “work wife”,who had definitely been here before ,in his pickup, crying her eyes out complaining about her insensitive and asshole boyfriend,who also happened to have an 8in penis and was good in bed(,he never forgot her stories ).

Nicole was the type who vented to him alot about both the good and bad of her relationship ,but mostly the bad.

But as much as he wanted to tell her leave this guy alone,a deeper part of him also wanted her to grow the hell up and learn her lessons just like he did. He knew she learning them on her own would cause her not to repeat them,so as usual he encouraged her,offered her tissue and told her Darius would hopefully come around.

“I don’t know,but it feels different this time” she said holding back more tears.

Oscar eyed her sadly, holding back telling her how puffy her face looked and instead held her hand tightly for reassurance.

“wanna go get some drinks?”

She looked at the time reading minutes to 9:00pm

“Maybe we shouldn’t,we got work tomorrow”

“Come on!” He said driving into a parking lot close to a bar.

The bar seemed busy for a Monday night,and as he parked he realized she pulled up her window.

“Are you coming in with me?’

“Nuh,you go ahead,I’ll wait for you here”

He rolled his eyes,”Ok,what do you want then?”

“I’ll just have a beer thanks”she was looking out the windshield as if to spot someone.

Oscar stepped out laughing a little.

After 15 minutes he was back with a pack of beers,before Nicole could protest he stated that he won it for being the most cutest guy in there. She couldn’t stop laughing and she knew that it was also factual,he was cute.Oscar was mixed with Amerindian blood that gave him curly ,long hair that he kept short and a vanilla skin that glowed in sunshine.He was perfect.

As he offered her a beer,she shook her lingering thoughts off.They drove into the night ,old school music blasted on the radio and tears seemed like something of the past.

He hugged her tight as he dropped her off at her apartment.She opened slowly,quietly,removed her shoes and tip toed into the washroom.Exhaled as she wiped off the makeup ,peeled off her clothes and stepped into the shower.

She smiled remembering the time with Oscar she was so grateful for his genuine friendship.She was soon bought back to reality when she felt a hand around her neck,a grip that startled her but soon soothed her as the hand began to massage her tension out.Soft kisses were plastered on her back .He turned her towards his slender, narked body and eyed her so sensually.

“I’m sorry for tonight”

“No,I’m sorry” she mumbled reaching out to kiss him.

He rested his forehead against hers,

He held her thick and curvy body close.

“where did you go?” I was getting worried?”

“I met up with Jocelyn,she was still in town,we hanged out a bit,had some beer”

“Had too much to drink huh?”

“No,I’m good”

“I Kinna wish you were,you know how you get when you’re drunk” he smirked kissing her deeply,she tasted marijuana on his tongue.

She had no more words as she surrendered to his passion and forgot everything but now.

Look out for Episode 2
