Trey stirred awake, looking over to the empty side of the bed. He felt a tad bit of panic in his heart, thinking that Noel had left him until the smell of breakfast hit his nose. Trey got up, brushed his teeth, and then took a quick shower before joining Noel in his large kitchen.
“Morning sleepy head. I thought you would never wake up.”
‘Oh really? Smells good in here.”
“Well…I’ve got eggs, turkey bacon, waffles, and grits. That’s if you’re hungry.”
“Sounds amazing. Let me get a plate. I gotta see if you can really cook.”
“Of course I can cook big head. Question is can you? Did your mumma teach you how to cook Tremaine?”
“Oh you mocking me now?” Trey asked with a smirk.
“Yea...a little .I think it’s cute how close you are with her. I kinda wish me and my mother got along like that.”
“Why don’t you?” Trey asked before biting into a slice of bacon.
“Long story. Don’t want to talk about it.”
“Fair enough. Listen…speaking of mothers. I’d like you to meet my mumma…soon.”
Noel gasped holding her chest. “You want me to meet your mumma? Oh I must be special.”
Trey laughed at Noel’s dramatics. “You’re crazy…but yes I’d like you to meet her. I think she’d like you.”
‘Hmmm I don’t know Trey. What if she hates me?”
“I don’t know…but I highly doubt she would.”
“Then maybe I can meet your parents Noel.”
Trey raised an eyebrow. ‘Why not?”
“There’s no need for you to meet them. At all.”
“Okay. What’s the matter?”
“They just…”Noel’s voice trailed off, she began to eat her food.
“You gonna tell me?”
“Trey…that’s too deep of a convo to have right now. I don’t wan to go there. I’m in a great mood right now.”
“I see. Well when you’re ready…”
“I don’t think I’ll ever be.”
Trey stared at Noel for a moment before finishing his food. The two swam in silence for a while.
“I gotta go Trey.”
“Why so soon?”
“I have errands to run.”
“Just…personal stuff. Nothing major.”
“Okay...well I guess you can call me later?”
“Yea…later.” With that Noel was out the door.
Noel walked into the light colored office, and was met by the intrigued stare of her boss.
“Noel Noel…did you get what we needed?”
“Yes. But I still need more time.”
“Time for what?”
“Well…you asked me to get in good with him, get into a relationship…that takes time Daniel.”
“Okay…don’t let us down Noel. We need this story. This…us having the inside scoop on Trey…the biggest fashion photographer around…could save us.”
‘Well just know that I’m making progress okay. We slept together last night.”
“Oh yes! Juicy. Just what we need Noel. Good job.”
"Just get us what we need Noel. You'll have that raise and corner office you've been working so hard for."
"Don't worry Daniel. I got this."
