COMING NOV. 25
I sit the boxes aside. “What you want, Cooper? Pussy?” I ask, shocking him.
I watch as he babbles a bit before gaining control.
“Well, um…if you willing to give me-“
“I didn’t say I’m giving you shit. I just wanna know what the hell you’re working up to?”
“All I am working on is beating you.”
I scoff, loudly. “Well, you’ll be working overtime to get no pay, because I’m taking home the win, again,” I stress. “What’s it gonna be?” I pause for effect, “Third year in the row?” I tease, rubbing salt in the wound.
“You haven’t crossed the finish line yet,” he smirks.
“I would be getting closer if you will stay out my face so I can work,” I finish with a nice-nasty smile.
“So, that offer of pussy, never mind,” he says as he takes note of my hard gaze.
Bitter rivals since high school, Cooper and Felisa have been going head to head in business, and the annual Christmas Festival for years. It never fails for things to get out of hand whenever the two are in close quarters. Things only get worse when to save their sinking companies, a business merger is proposed. Being in each other’s face on a daily only serves to increase the opportunities for comical moments, fights that get the town talking and taking bets, and strokes the flames of a sizzling romance that’s been years in the making.
“I don’t give a fuck. Mama Brigitte can do as she pleases as payment for helping me get my revenge,” admits Ms. Robbins.
“So, you unleashed something that you can’t control,” Monae states.
“If they are dumb to call her name, then fuck’em,” she pauses to lean forward, dropping her voice, “Don’t fuck around, and if it happens to-“
I snatch Monae back to stand behind me.
“The boogeyman, a rooster, or you, if you threaten her, I swear I’ll be the one snatching souls,” I growl.
Ms. Robbin moves back. Silently, her almond-shaped eyes with a hint of a blue glaucoma ring around their dark irises roam me from head to toe. Suddenly, she chuckles as if she’s noticing something for the first time.
“Cracker, get the fuck out of my store,” she hisses.
Bullshit! That’s the only way to describe this case. I won’t point out LeRoy and Monae put me in the middle of another cluster fuck. A strange drug cooked up by a Voodoo Preistess, A soul snatching Spirit, and a Dream World killing teens, sounds like the making of a B-rated horror flick. All I have to say is when I catch wind of Monae being the center of an attack, I don’t care who, what, or how…I’m out for blood.
Then again, I should know that Monae could hold her own. Oh yeah, I’m gonna learn with the rest…My Lady ain’t the one to fuck with.
“So, he gives me away like a harlot…as your property.”
“You are not my property, Kylenna.”
Hope? I lick my dried, salty tears from my lips.
“Then, it is as it was with my Mother when Musa sent her to your lands,” I begin. “I will be free to make a life of my own, free from…”
My words trail off at Hojo’s slow shake of his head.
“You will remain with me.”
“But why? You can give me your protection, and I can live as I choose,” I explain.
“You will remain with me,” he repeats.
I tilt my head. “Are you telling me I’m more than a bag of grain tossed in to close a deal?”
Hojo chuckles. “This can be whatever we envision it to be, Kylenna. It will bring changes, but it can also be pleasurable and sustaining, too.”
Why after years of wanting, wishing to be his, fate has chosen to step in, but not on my terms? I can't allow my heart to trick me into believing what I see in Hojo's eyes, what I feel while his body moves over mine is real. Yet, when he says, "I'll Die Without You" ...when I see him willing to take apart everything and everyone to love me, I wonder if I'm willing to sacrifice it all for love?
