tuesday; Naughty or Nice party
I walked into the studio and headed to the bar that was set up at a corner straight away.
"Apple martini, please."
The bartender winked at me before turning around to get the drink done. I turned to face the crowd, leaning on the table with my elbows.
"Such a light drink, huh?"
I side glance to see a familiar face. "Roxy?"
"The one and only," she said, motioning her hand at herself.
I launched a hug attack at her. "Welcome back!"
She laughed. "I. Can't. Breath."
I slapped her arm. "B.tch."
"Well b.tch to you, too," she said and winked.
"So, where have you been?" I asked, sipping my drink.
"The best question of all...such a great conversation starter," she said. "I thought I might go home for a while."
I didn’t expected her to go back so early, she was more of the party type. Maybe she was tired or still jet lagged. I couldn’t ask her the million dollar question.
"That's nice," I said obliviously. Maybe I could before she leaves.
"So..." I started, playing with the rim of my martini glass.
"You're going to ask me about Reece..."
"No, no, no!" I backpedaled, looking up at her to see the I-knew-you’ll-ask-it-anyway face then sighed. "I was."
"That's okay, really, I'm fine." Roxy smiled at me. It’s been so long since I’ve seen her smile and it was really great to see her again.
"So no more Reece?"
"Nope, single to mingle. Although I'm keeping off the juice for a while." She pointed at my cocktail.
I laughed. Was she serious? Roxy not drinking just doesn’t seem right but I know she has a reason for this.
"So how about you, got a guy?"
"Me? Nah.. I don't think I have the time."
She looked at me. "What do you mean you don't have time?"
"Oh, right," she said, suddenly remembering I had a son to take care of. "By the way, I haven't met him yet."
"Silly me," I giggled. "One day."
"Why not tomorrow?"
The music suddenly got louder, blaring out from the stereos at all the top corners.
"If you don't want to its okay." I just looked at her mouth moving but I hear nothing. The music was killing me.
And she just looked back at me, as if she was waiting for something.
"What!!?" I yelled over the music.
She jerked a little. "I said! If you don't want me to meet Nathanael it's alright!"
I shook my head. She must have thought I think she was a bad example for him.
Just then, the music soften down a bit.
"No, he's with my ex until Friday. You can come over at the weekends if you want."
"Sure. Something to distract me from those craziness since I came back."
I nodded understandingly. "You want to do something fun? We are dressed for naughty.."
She nodded at my offer. "I see Josh's eyes pleading us for a double lapdance." She nodded over toward him, his face resting upon his palms propped up by the elbows.
"Sounds like a plan," I said, giving her a wicked grin.
