Tick Tock. Tick Tock. Tick….
I was holding my head beneath my bangs with my left hand, as I stared at the clock, which punished me for each minute I had stolen every morning this week.
It was moving painfully slow and I just wanted to go home.
I was so tired.
But thank God it was Friday.
I don’t remember ever running out of the office as fast I did that day. Except for the time when I had a flight to catch.
I rushed into my car and headed home. I just wanted to slump on my bed and binge watch OINTB until I passed out.
As I neared my house, I realized that I didn’t have any more wine. I must have consumed all of it, although it was a slow week.
I turned into the Bevmo parking lot and headed for the wine.
10minutes later, I was heading home and my weekend was about to begin.
It was a struggle to pull myself up the stairs and into my bed.
I slumped into my bed, without taking my clothes off. I sipped my wine and picked the episode I wanted to watch.
I must have dozed off like I always do once the wine kicks in.
I was awoken by my phone.
“Hey girl, what are you up to… wait, are you sleeping?”
My best friend Tola asked me before I could even answer.
“Babe, I didn’t even realize I had knocked out.
What’s going on?”
She laughed and then said in a clearly distracted tone,
“Come on! Let’s go… no, please put that in a separate bag. Thanks.”
My eyes were still closed and I said,
“Come where? Where are you going?
Cause only Jesus can get me out of this bed right now!”
She was walking out of the store she was in when she said,
“It’s Mayowa’s birthday. He’s getting a few tables at Liquid. Let’s go na.”
I slightly opened my eyes, noticing the Netflix screen asking “Are you still there?”
I told Tola,
“See eh, I’m so tired right now. Before I do makeup, fix my hair and everything…” I sighed thinking about it. “Can you see if Janet wants to go? I’m tired.”
I assumed she accepted my plea and was looking for another victim for her night out.
My phone rang a few minutes later, and to my surprise, it was Janet.
She didn’t say much other than,
“You’re going. Get ready. We’ll be there in an hour.”
That was Janet; the sweetest but also the most direct person I know.
An hour and a half later, we were doing shots on my kitchen counter and then we were off!
I was still tired and sleepy. My plan was to come back and get a few good hours of sleep in before my afternoon appointment on Saturday.
The crew at the club was the same as always, mostly people I grew up and went to college with.
It was your regular event, with Snapchat filters and flashing lights that filled the section as we celebrated a dear friends birthday.
I had gotten up to powder my nose, when I felt a gentle tap on my right arm.
I swung around to see who it was and boy, was I surprised!
I found myself locking eyes with a tall and dark-skinned man, as he began to flash his beautiful white smile. He said,
“I’m so sorry to have touched you but I just had to get your attention.”
I smiled and accepted his apology, telling him, “It’s okay.”
He then said,
“I’d love to buy you a drink.”
I smiled and said,
“How about when I return from the ladies room?”
He nodded in agreement.
Tola had seen the interaction and she raced into the bathroom.
She began questioning me,
“Who is he?!
Girlllllll he is fineeee!”
I also couldn’t stop smiling! She was right, he was very easy on the eyes… even though I knew nothing about him.
I replied her, “Girl I don’t know. I’ll let you know when I get the gist.”
I headed back out and met him at the bar. He had two drinks waiting, as he leaned on the bar.
“You ordered for me?”,I asked him.
He nodded and said,
“I hope you don’t mind. I thought you might enjoy this drink.”
He slid a cosmopolitan my way and as I picked it up I said,
“I hope you didn’t spike my drink.”
He smiled and motioned upwards with his hands, while shaking his head vigorously.
I took a sip and a dope night began.
We talked in the corner and I showed him what a proper whine felt like a few times.
He was witty and funny.
He kept his strong hands around my waist as he matched my every move, I was really feeling him.
So you can understand my frustration when the lights came on and the DJ announced that the club was closing.
I tried to play it off as we walked outside, then he asked me,
“Have you ever had a chorizo and cheese hot dog from one of those carts?”
He pointed a few yards down the street.
My face lit up!
I loved them! How did he know? He couldn’t have known!
I slapped his right arm as I said,
“Shut up! I love those!”
“Ouch!”, he squealed like I had just broken his whole arm.
We laughed and walked up to the cart. As we ate the dogs, he asked,
“I hope your friends aren’t upset that I took you away from them tonight.”
I shook my head with my mouth full, as I swallowed I replied,
“No. I bet you they are glad they didn’t have to babysit me tonight. Cause I didn’t really want to come out.”
He gasped jokingly and said,
“So you mean you wouldn’t have met my awesomeness today?”
I chuckled and said,
“I guess that’s why I’m glad I did come out tonight.”
He smiled and turned towards me as he said,
“And I’m sad I’m going to have to leave you.”
I don’t know when I blurted it out but I said,
“We can go back to mines if you want, I still some wine left over.”
He smiled and replied,
“Who’s trying to get who drunk now?”
We both laughed.
For the whole Uber ride, I kept playing back that sequence and questioning myself,
“Why did I ask him to come over?!”
I only comforted myself by saying I knew I wasn’t going back to his place. At least this way, I could kick him out if I wanted. And I wouldn’t have had to be at some random guys apartment.
We arrived at my apartment and I let us in.
My wine glass was still sitting on the kitchen counter. I emptied it and poured myself a new glass as he opened the new bottle.
He proceeded to pour himself a glass and then walked over to the couch with the bottle in hand.
We went through that bottle and another as we just sat on the floor and talked about everything.
I loved that he works as a lawyer for a group of charter schools that served disabled children and he could play the guitar.
And that smile, oh that smile!
There was a point where he spoke and I just wished he would kiss me.
I wasn’t sure I wanted that on the first meeting but I tell you, his perfect lips were so annoying because they covered that gorgeous smile.
I remember him asking if he could kiss me.
I had always talked about how I thought any man that asked that was stupid because he should know if there was a vibe and if he had the green light, he would know.
But the way he asked melted me.
I just nodded sheepishly.
As he placed his soft lips on mine, I felt chills run through my spine and down my folded legs.
As he pulled away, he licked his lips and I wanted more.
“You are trouble.”
He smiled and said,
“I’ll get in trouble for you.”
I pulled him in and I kissed him. Hard.
I’m not sure how long it was but he just locked his lips on mine. When he broke, he kissed my neck.
I could feel my walls contracting and I starting to flood.
My heart was racing and my mind was trying to catch up.
His lips were wet and soft down my neck and I tried to decide if I wanted this to go any further.
He kissed his was down my blouse and I just knew I was going to.
Somewhere in my mind, I said fuck it.
He was strong and gentle at the same time.
The way he cupped my breasts and squeezed them. And how he pulled me close…I was melting in his arms.
His tongue searched my hard drive for lost files. When he arrived at my navel, he looked up at me for approval.
I just wanted him to pull them off. I thanked my stars that I had recently gotten a wax.
He slowly pulled my panties off.
I was wet.
Not one of those, I’m not sure if it’s a drizzle or rain. It was a tsunami.
He smiled as he kissed my thighs and his lips parted mine.
I squirmed as he licked and slurped.
Oh, it felt so good.
For one, I was getting my pink feasted on, two, I didn’t have to direct him.
The man knew his way around me like he had been there before.
He nibbled and sucked, as he paced himself. I moaned and squirmed underneath the panel lights from the courtyard outside, which shined into my living room.
I could feel myself nearing a climax and it was like he knew it too. He pinned my thighs to his shoulders and dug in.
His tongue carried it’s strength in strokes as it twisted and circled around my now throbbing clit.
My toes curled, my back tensed and lifted off the couch with my pink still his mouth.
And there is was, climax. I let out a satisfying moan as I pushed him off me.
He sat back with a smug smile on his face like a proud winner.
I got up, moved closer to him and lowered my lips onto his shaft.
The warmth of my mouth combined with the swirl of my tongue had him holding on to the back of my head.
I looked up at him as I shifted his hips to my strokes.
He got harder in my mouth. I lifted my mouth off and asked,
“Do you have a condom?”
He reached for his pants on the floor and pulled one out of his wallet.
It was on.
He lifted me in his arms and headed for the kitchen counter. He placed me down, legs over his arms and slowly slipped into my wetness.
The view was amazing, his towering shoulders, the silhouette of the lighting behind him.
He gripped unto my waist as he slapped his pelvis into mine.
I wish you understand how good it felt to have someone dominate with such skill and obviously granted permission.
He slid out of me and walked me to my room, it was dark apart from the glow of the printer in the right hard corner.
He motioned for me to turn around and I did.
Face down, you know the rest.
As he went inside me, I clutched the sheets and cursed.
He was so strong, I tell you.
With each stroke, I thought I was going to break.
I can’t remember what he was saying but he was being so dirty and I liked it.
I could feel his balls slapping into my clit as my wetness transferred on to him.
He picked up and slowed the pace as he wanted.
I turned around to look at him and that’s where I had him.
His thrust got shorter and faster. He pounded harder and harder.
And there it was, a series of very satisfying grunts and he was done.
We laid there and tried to catch our breaths and then we laughed.
“That was amazing.”
I was glad he said it before I did because it was. I ran my right index finger down his chest and I got up.
Walking into the bathroom, I looked at myself in the mirror, a part of me wanted to feel bad but it was so good. I cleaned up and returned to the room.
He had his shirt and undergarments on.
He motioned to me and said,
“Do you want to cuddle?”
Do you know how that felt?!
A man that actually offers to cuddle?
And with those strong arms of his?
I quickly jumped into the bed. He wrapped his arms around me and pulled me close.
On my back, I could feel his gentle heartbeat.
I remember thinking “what if” as I felt asleep.
The next morning, I woke feeling fresh.
I turned and tapped behind me and there was no one there.
He must have slipped out during the night.
“Oh well”, I thought. Hopefully, we’ll talk later.
I tried to find my phone but I soon realized that I had left it in the living room.
As I got up to get it, I could hear better.
I opened he bedroom door and there he was, briefs and a semi-hard member in between his legs. He was fixing me breakfast.
With a shy smile on my face, I said,
“Gbenga, You cook too?”
He turned and with a smile on his face, he replied,
“Only for special people.”
My smile got bigger.
He looked so good in there and his package between his legs was, even more, inviting in the morning.
“Well if you cook half as good as you eat, then I’m sure it will be awesome.”
The food was above average which was fair for most men.
What he did to me on my couch before he left was way above average.
I remember a sadness as he left before being reassured when he said,
“I’ll call you.”
I shut the door and I could not contain myself.
I was so happy and bouncy.
It hadn’t felt that good in so long.
I sat down on the couch with my tongue out covering half my smile. I picked up my phone and texted Tola.
She knew what it meant.
Her reply was,
“Bissssssssh! That good?!
“Girl you have no idea. All the gist after this gig. Love you, babe.”
I reached for my charger around the couch and plugged in my phone.
As I looked up at the clock, I muttered,
“Shit, I’m going to be late.”
I needed to shower and get going for my weekend gig.
I worked as a photographer and I took pictures of people and families as needed.
My client was this newly engaged couple that wanted to take their wedding announcement pictures.
But they lived over an hour away.
I hopped in the shower, and within 45 minutes, I was on my way.
It was a beautiful day out.
The shoot was going to be at a historic royal garden where I had shot before.
We were using a different side but I was excited all the same.
These gigs were the extra cash I had to pay off my student loans.
So I matter how tired I was, I always gave my best.
I made my way onto the grass and there she was. The soon to be bride.
I greeted her,
I loved her. She was always so sweet over the phone and was referred by another client.
Always smiling and positive.
She turned and gave me the biggest hug.
“Sorry love, my fiancé is running a bit late.
He went out with his boys last night and you know how that can be.”
We laughed and just chatted about her upcoming wedding.
Her phone rang and she looked down to answer it.
“Hey babe, where are you?”, she asked.
He responded and she replied,
“We are over by the fountain.”, before ending the call.
“He’s here!”, she said to me with a smile on her face.
I couldn’t help but think, I can’t wait till I get those similar butterflies while in love.
I was fiddling with my camera when I heard a deep masculine voice say,
I knew that voice. Well, I thought I did, so I turned around and received the shock of my life.
She broke a short kiss from him and said,
“Ada, please meet my fiancé Gbenga.”
I almost choked on nothing. I was shocked.
He played it off like a pro as he walked up to me, stretched out his hand to shake mine.
I was so stunned that for a second, my brain forgot to tell my hand to rise.
We shook hands and he said,
“Sorry I kept both of you waiting, I got a little lost.”
“Bullshit!”, I thought.
He sure wasn’t lost last night when he was deep inside my gut like Indiana Jones.
Ugh! I felt so stupid.
I was even more annoyed by how well he played it off.
He was playful with his soon to be bride. Whispering sweet nothings in her ears, making her laugh and giggle.
All I could think of as the shutter on my camera closed was,
“Men are Scum!”
How could he?
Here I was about to brag about him to my girls!
From the gentleman-like behavior all night, to great sex and breakfast. I felt so insulted and disrespected but it was either shut up or crush this unassuming lady.
So I did my job and just felt sick inside.
The pictures were great and I couldn’t get out of there fast enough.
I regretted the night before and I just wanted to head home, rip my off sheets since they were covered in his cologne and forget the past 24hrs ever happened.
As I sat in my car, I let out a deep sigh.
Thank God I wasn’t contracted to shoot their wedding because I don’t know if I would have been able to.
That thought was just leaving my head when my phone rang.
I reached for it and answered the call.
It was my boyfriend and he said,
“Hey, babe. How are you today?”
I shook my head as I almost vomited my insides filled with regret and disgust.
I composed myself and said,
“It was low-key babe. Didn’t even do anything.
How’s the hospital, any exciting patients?”
He answered away and my mind drifted off until I heard him say,
“Helloooo babe? Are you there?”
“Yes, babe. Sorry. Yes I am.”,
I replied apologetically.
He continued and said,
“I’m off in about 30minutes, what do you say to me coming over and making you something while we drink some wine and chill?”
My head dropped as I replied,
“I already ate babe. Rain check?”
He agreed and said goodbye.
Yeah, I ate quite alright and I was full of regret and disgust.
And thinking about my last 24hrs, all I could say was #WhatTheHeckMan
