The Secret Service
My heart sped up as I looked down at him. His dark piercing eyes stared back at me. ?
“Trey….please….you’ve gotta stay with me!”
Trey shut his eyes tight…he coughed up more blood.
“Please…Trey…just stay…I need you!”
“Zora….I can’t…Can’t hold on no more…”
Tears came falling down my face. The chill from the streets covered me.
How did we end up here? How did the love of my life end up dying in my arms?
I guess….it all started 8 months ago…. ?
I heard my husband calling my name. I threw on my robe and glided down the steps.
“Yes Cliff?” I answered in a light tone.
“ Look…I’m going out of town again.”
“What a surprise.”
“Look. Don’t get smart Zora. After the second attempt on my life I need to get away. Sort some shit out for us.”
“Okay…and what am I gonna do?”
“That’s what I’m about to tell you. I’ve been looking at some potential security for you.”
“Yes. You are the closest thing to me, I know they will target you. I have to make sure you are protected Zora.”
“When I make my final decision I will send him over to you. He will live, eat sleep, and travel with you. You will be attached at the hip.”
“What about us Cliff?”
“I don’t know. Look I gotta go.”?
Cliff kissed me on the cheek before rushing out the door. I stood on the steps for a good 5 minutes before I moved again. ?
I wondered who would be my security. Probably some big buff bald headed guy in a black suit.
I giggled to myself as I poured a tall glass of coffee.
Just then my phone rang.
“Zora! It’s me!”
“I rolled my eyes and smiled. It was my little sister Cilicia, or CiCi as I called her.
“Hey lil sis. How’s it going?”
“Good. Mom says you need to call more often though.”
“I know, I know. I just…”
“Don’t wanna talk to her because you KNOW she’s gonna say “I Told You So” ?”
“I understand sis. I love you! Just wanted to tell you that.”
“I love you too CiCi. And thanks for calling me.” ?
We said our goodbyes and hung up. She made me feel so much better. CiCi was good for doing that.
For the rest of the day I just stayed around the house and cleaned. That’s what I always did when I had a lot of shit on my mind. Later that night I made myself a Cobb salad and a glass of wine. I sat on the couch and watched old episodes of “Living Single”.
I had grown used to being alone. I liked it that way.
I was on my fourth glass of wine and feeling nice when my doorbell rang followed by a loud knock.
I jumped and walked cautiously to the door.
I slowly opened it to find a tall man staring back it me.
My heart jumped.
I mean…this man…had to be the most beautiful thing I’d ever seen. Ever.
He had these eyes…these dark intense eyes that stared right through me. Made me feel naked.
His perfectly shaped lips formed into a sexy pout. His skin was smooth, his hair cut perfectly.
His tailored suit clung to his muscular body just right, his 6’1’ frame stood tall over my mere 5’5’.
I was lost. So lost that didn’t hear him say my name.
“Zora? You’re Zora right?”
“Ummm….yea. Yes! I am Zora.”
He chuckled before extending his hand. “Hi my name is Tremaine. But you can call me Trey. Your husband Cliff hired me today.”
“I’m your security. He told me to come tonight. You are aware of that right?”
“Yes. Yes I am…I just didn’t expect you to be…so..”
“Young and not a bodybuilder? Yea I get that all the time.”
“Oh. Well, come on in.”
“I took a long deep breath as he walked pass me. God he smelled delicious.
He turned and looked at me. “Zora.?”
“You okay? I mean you look like a deer in headlights.”
I wanted to tell him that I was horny as hell and his fine ass was making me weaker by the second, but I decided to keep that info to myself.
“I’m fine. Make yourself at home Trey.”
Trey flashed me the sexiest one-sided smile and I swore I had an orgasm right then and there.
How in the hell was I survive being around this man?
“This is gonna be interesting” I whispered to myself.
I stared at my wedding ring before joining him on the couch.
Sorry for keeping yall waiting, But here it is!!! Enjoy and comment! :)?
