The rise of a new day
Warm arms, strong and muscular wrapped Jada in a shell. Her heart skipped a beat, and she turned, slowly facing a rugged goatee. Her eyes ran up his lips, so succulent and tempting, over a strong nose, into dark brown eyes—a glimmer of hazel sparkling in the depth of his gaze.
“You’re… awake,” she announced.
His arms pulled her tight.
“I am,” he responded, his unblinking stare, piercing.
“I know that look and before you ask, can I brush my teeth first?”
If she admitted to herself that being this close to him was causing absolute wreckage on her spirit, maybe he would grant her request a little faster.
He eyed her a second longer, considered denying her request because this was typical Jada. She wanted to hide from him, and there was so much that needed to be said.
“We need to talk.”
“I know, and we will,” she moved to slip out of his arms, and he released her, with frustration in a sigh that dispersed on his lips.
Running into the sanctuary of his master bathroom, Jada shut the door without bothering to lock it, knowing Solomon wouldn’t interrupt whatever quiet moment was needed. He was so considering. Always on the lookout for others and making sure at every moment that Jada was good or possessed what she needed.
Not only that, but their friendship, from the moment they met in grade school, grew, as their fondness for one another developed. Their similarities became more apparent, and they exercised those commonalities daily. Like adding martial arts to their regular exercise regimen or watching dark rom-com movies like A Thin Line Between Love and Hate. It was their all-time favorite. They’d hit the streets for any political front-runner they believed in and even had the pleasure of being partners on daytime game shows like Family Feud.
But most importantly, Jada and Solomon had been able to do with one another, something that they’d yet to accomplish with anyone else. They recognized each other’s differences and understood that those distinctions played a vital role in their individual character. Whether it was Jada’s need to unplug every appliance or electronic in the house because she swore the energy used from them while they were off was money that could be saved, to Solomon walking out of the room and leaving the light’s on because he would return shortly or that it slipped his mind.
Regardless of which, instead of demanding the other get with the program, they individually worked on their own accord to bring ease to the other’s anxiety by being mindful of those instances.
It was everything she needed in a mate. He was everything she needed.
That thought made Jada shake her head and push off the door and make her way over cold Italian marble tile to the glass shower door. She reached for the nozzle and checked the temperature of the water as her thoughts rewound to yesterday, then last night.
Jada had the hard evidence to prove that he’d been cheating on her. As she added the camera to the stuffed animal he’d purchased for her birthday the day before, second thoughts had riddled Jada’s mind. But she needed to know. More importantly, she was desperate to find out if her assumptions were just that.
But they hadn’t been. And the raw, ugly truth made Jada lift her hand to her chest and massage a thumb between her breasts as if to console the pain that rested there.
It was time to leave him once and for all. But that wasn’t the biggest issue of yesterday.
She kissed her best friend and remembered it as if she was sober and full of sound mind when she’d lifted into his mouth.
Excuses taunted her.
You were drunk. You needed consoling. You wanted to feel loved again.
And even after all of those half-truths floated around her mind, Jada shed her clothes and stepped into the downpour of crushing water, knowing, it was something else altogether.
“What is happening?” She murmured, exhaling while entertaining risky possibilities.
