“Mahogany, you know I’m here for you.”

“I know. That’s why I’m trying to watch out for you; because I got yo back and  I know, you got mine.”

“I’m sorry you went through what you went through. I thank you for looking out. But I don’t think Klaus is anything like that.”
“Desire, you don’t know what this man is really like. The one good thing I have to say about him is, he has his own money. Did you ever find out what he does?”

“No. All I know is he’s the boss and can get time off when ever he needs it.”

“You telling me, ya’ll have been together for a little over a month now and he still hasn’t told you what he does?”

“Yeah. But he told me from the jump that he wanted to get to know me first before he tells me the inner most parts of his life.”

“Desire, what the f*** are you talking about?! You telling me his a** can’t even tell you where he works?! He at least knows that much about you!”

“I know. But, I’m trying to give him the time he needs to tell me when he’s ready.”

“I don’t know where you come from with this p**** s***! Grow some balls!” 

“Mahogany, can I do this the way I know how?”

“No! Because the men in Miami are a different breed, they nothing like the men you know. They cut throat!”

“Well, I guess it’s good for me that he’s not from Miami.”

“That don’t change a damn thing. He been here for a while, I’m sure he don picked up some of the ways.”

“You worry to much.”

“When you seeing him again?”

“Later tonight?”

“Where ya’ll going?”

“Damn, Momma.”
“Desire, just answer the question.”
“Well, we haven’t decided yet. But, I really just want to stay in.”

“There you go with yo fast a**?”

“I’m not being fast I just don’t want to go anywhere.”
“Like I said.”

“Well, expect me to drop on by. I wanna see what Mr. Klaus is all about.”

“Because, I want to make sure he has the best intensions for my bestfriend.”

“Don’t you think I should have figured that out already?”
“No. He got yo nose wide open. So asking you to look at ya’lls relationship logically, is something you’re not capable of at the current moment. By this point I’m sure you’ve been hypnotized by the d***.”


“Ha, ha, ha, you so funny; Not.”
“Whatever. I’m not saying to be funny. I just know how this thing works.”

“Mahogany, can I give you a call back?!”

Klaus was on the other end and Desire was hot and bothered thinking about the night before.
“He’s on the other end; isn’t he?”

“How you know?”

“Because you sounding a little to happy to get off the phone. Go ahead and talk to him. But let him know, I want to meet him tonight.”


“Okay, Ma.”

Mahogany and Desire’s relationship reflected that of sisters. They hadn’t known each other for long, but that didn’t matter because their souls felt as if they had known each other forever.


Ending the phone call with Mahogany, she clicked over to speaker to her (a.k.a beautiful stranger) Klaus.

“Hey baby! Are we still on for tonight?” 

“That’s why I’m calling. I’m not gonna be able to make it tonight.”

“What happened?”

“Nothing. I just have to take care of some business.”
“What’s really going on?”

“I told you Desire. I have to take care of some business. These are the type of things that come with owning a multi-million dollar company.” 

“I understand you have to work, but this is the third time you’ve cancelled on me this week!”

“Baby, I’m so sorry. Best believe I’m gonna make it up to you.”

“What are you gonna do?” Desire was very disappointed, but soon forgot about it because if there was anything Klaus was good at,  it was making up.

“First we’re going to take a little vacation. I know you need it and so do I.”

“Where are we going?”
“It won’t matter because we’ll be in the room most of the time. All I wanna do is make love to you, and spoil you in every way I know how.”

“And I want you too. But when are we gonna go out and have some fun? It seems like all we’ve been doing for the past couple of weeks, is have sex.”

“I thought you were enjoying yourself.”
“Don’t get me wrong; I am. I just thought this would be something more than a sex thing.”
“That’s not what this is.”

“Coulda fooled me. Every time you come over here, we end up having sex.”

“That’s only because I’m attracted to you and you’re attracted to me.”
“I get that. But, you haven’t taken me any where since, what?….. About two weeks ago.”

“In do time. You know my business keeps me busy. I’m sorry I’m not able to give you the time you deserve. But I really like you, and I think something special could come from the chemistry we have.”
“I like you too. But, I’m not about to be sitting here waiting for you to show up, and you bail just when I think I’m gonna see you!”
“Patience, Monique. You will be seeing me real soon. I just have to take care of this first. 

How about we make plans for tomorrow?”

“Let’s play it by ear. I might have plans tomorrow.”

“Okay. Well, give me a call when you’re free.”

“No. How about you do that?”

“Alright, I’ll call you tomorrow.”

“Okay, I look forward to hearing from you.”
Desire was pissed. She thought something was really starting to takeoff between the two of them. But every time she thought he was allowing her to get closer, he would pull back by disappearing for a couple of days at a time. But little did she know, there was a really good reason he wasn’t spending as much time with her as he did before. She planned on doing some digging for herself. She felt it was time to get to know more about him than he was telling her. So she did what any woman in a situation like hers would have done; she made a plan to follow him home the next time he came over.
