I’m am soo tired. With all the promos, shopping, and partying I needed some serious ME time. I really wanted to enjoy my vacation because I don’t get to relax often. Unfortunately I spoke to soon when I agreed to go out tonight with Mel. I sat on the couch in the back with Mel, we were at a friend’s party on this gorgeous yacht. I wanted to take in the air and enjoy the ride. It was about 6:00pm so the sun midway in the sky was absolutely stunning. I grabbed my drink and took a sip. I spread my arms out wide and relaxed my head on the rail I started to space out until Mel pinched the shit out of my leg. “OUCH!” I said. “What was that for?”
I looked over at Mel and she had this look on her face like she just saw Jesus in the flesh. “What’s wrong?” I asked. All she can do is point near the group of people gathered around across the way from us but I couldn’t see why. I heard someone laugh and my heart dropped into my stomach and damn near out my ass. I knew that laugh anywhere! I stood up quick before the crowd dispersed and snuck over to the corner of the boat, hopefully no one saw me. “Fuck!!!! I knew he would show up. UUGHH! Okay just act cool… be calm… you can do this! Who Am I kidding! I got to get the hell out of here”. I kept trying to convince myself but it only made it worse.
My head dropped down on my hands as I leaned over the railing trying to think of a way to escape somewhere unnoticed. It was fucked up because Mel begged me to come out tonight, she really wanted to come and mingle. “Damn” I can’t just leave her here…Uugghh. All of a sudden I felt someone’s hands slowly wrap around my waist. I jumped at first because I didn’t know who it was but as they leaned closer I smelled my favorite Cologne. It was him! I couldn’t turn around I wasn’t ready to face him. I wasn’t ready to see that smile, to see those dimples, to look into those seductive eyes. I feel I would lose it, Naw I know I would lose it! But I can’t. Not Now. Not anymore.
” I missed you Rih” Chris said. “Please don’t act like you don’t miss me” he said playfully. I turned around to look at him but couldn’t. “Hi Christopher” I said looking down. “Christopher huh, I’m Christopher now” he grinned then chuckled. He took his hand and lifted my face up. “Can we go somewhere private and talk? I have something I really need to tell you”. Chris asked as his face turned serious quick. I was confused. I haven’t really seen him in like a year and to want to talk? What do I say? I stood there for a second not knowing what answer would be a good one. “I guess sure” I responded. He grabbed my hand and led me up some stairs to the second level of the yacht. A couple of people stared as we walk by them. I don’t blame them though, I was just as confused as they were. What could he possibly need to Say?
We found an area over to the side of the yacht that had these big white cushioned chairs. I was still thinking how beautiful this yacht was as I walked over to the chairs it was getting nippy outside. It was pretty much dark outside now the sun was almost completely down when you looked out into the water. Above us were these white string lights which were a little awkward because it was a little too romantic for the occasion of me and Chris talking or really seeing each other after a year.” So what’s up Christopher, what is it that you want to say” I said as if I was losing interest. He scooted in his chair a little closer to mine and he grabbed my hands and held them in his.
He look concerned which was starting to worry me. As soon as he touched my hands for some reason I became lost in my thoughts. No matter how upset or over Chris I was no one has ever been able to make me feel the way he does. The way he would touch me, the way that he would to make love to me. Ugh! He would know how to make a river flow just from the way he looked at me. But most of all the way he would make me feel just lying in his arms at night Is priceless. “ROBYN! “ Chris yelled, “You alright?” I was a little embarrassed that he caught me in my thoughts, but tried to play it off. “Yea sorry” I said. “Anyway I know we haven’t really seen each other and definitely have not talked like we use to but I really need you to help me” Chris said.
“I’m in this situation and I don’t know what to do and you’ve always given me really good advice”. He looked at me with these begging eyes .Aawww shit I thought to myself what the hell could it be. “Just tell me” I said. He sighed deeply, and you could see the nervousness starting to build on his face.” Um okay how do you say this, I ….
