"Ebony, are you alright, I'm starting to get scared"
"Don't, I just need a minute here, let me get this straight, you walked into my bank office three years ago and asked for a loan. I approved it and three months later the loan I approved helped your business bomb. Six months later I gave you some financial advice that made you millions within a year of taking it, not to mention the investments and stocks you've earned"
"But I really don't recall meeting you before"
"Well, if it makes you feel any better I was about 100 pounds lighter with braces and glasses"
"I don't know what to say Devin right now I'm just a little overwhelmed by all this"
"Yes, yes to what"
"To becoming my wife"
Ebony begin to laugh but once she realized that he wasn't she look at him, "you serious"
"We barely know each other"
He laughed to himself, "I find it interesting Ebony that you're willing to suck and fuck me all night but you don't believe that I would marry you today if you allowed me to"
He once again made her speechless, Devin sensed that a man had never been that real with her before so he fell back a little with his boldness," why don't we go to my home and you can cleaned up"
"Wait, I can't do that"
"Do what, you thought the place you where at last night was my home, well allow me to be as honest as you handle until you're ready for more"
Ebony couldn't believe she was doing this but if he was being anything less than honest she would have smelt the bullshit by now so she took a chance and said ok but I still have to get a change of clothes
Devin popped open his glove compartment and pulled out a stack of money and said we can buy you some clothes on the way there
That did it for Ebony, he passed the tests he needed to get her, she secretly hoped he could pass all the most important tests; the ones to keep her
Tremaine slowly turned to Brenda "what did you just say"
She smiled with relief, "we have a daughter", she begin to step closer to him, "her name is Belle and everyday she looks more and more like you"
Tremaine begin to leave, "I don't believe you"
"Tremaine, I would never lie about something like this"
He kept walking and she followed him to his Benz, "What kind of woman would keep a man from his only child"
"A foolish one"
That caught his attention, Brenda was a smart woman both book and street so hearing those words from her definitely made him listen, "Why are you telling me this now Brenda"
"I need your help"
He begin to open the Benz door, "I knew it, I fucking knew it, you are still the same old selfish Brenda"
"He took her from us"
Tremaine didn't get in the car, he turned to Brenda who had tears in her eyes, "what"
Ebony shopped and followed Devin to the same beautiful mansion she had passed by several times in the past year, "this is your home"
He touched her hand "and it can be yours too if you allow"
"Why do you always say that"
"Well I would think a woman as independent as yourself would already know but a man can only do what a woman allows"
Ebony liked that answer alot, she already knew that, she just wanted to see if he would give the right answer, "I just might allow it if you keep this up"
They entered his home and the butler greeted them "should I have Nina to set another place at the table sir"
"Yes and have her to prepare a shower for Miss Ebony"
"Yes right away sir"
"Do people always do what you ask Mr. Smalls"
"If I can get all this being your wife, I think I might marry you"
They laughed together
