Episode 9: Cruisin


Episode #9

(Scroll down to read Episodes 1-8)

After I got off the phone with Narika, I realized it was time for me to get ready for my outing with Terry. I put on a cute, little red sundress with spaghetti straps and adorned it with gold accessories: earrings, necklace, and bangles, complete with gold flat sandals and gold purse. I looked at myself in the mirror and I was pleased. I was hoping Terry would be too.

Around 5:45, Terry called. Mmm, courtesy call, I said to myself, how nice. He told me he was on the way and would be at my apartment in a few minutes. I told him I was ready and as promised, a few minutes later my doorbell rang. I made my way to the door, took a deep breath, and opened it with a smile.

“Heeyy you!”

“Hey Sweetie, you look real good,” said Terry as he greeted me at the door.

He smiled at me with that Crest Whitestrips looking smile. He then proceeded to give me one of those tight, warm hugs, the kind that lasted for what seemed like hours. I felt like I could have fell asleep right there in his arms. I opened my eyes just as I felt his hug loosening.

“Thank you Terry. I’m glad you don’t have on red today,” I said jokingly, “But you look really handsome yourself.”

Terry was dressed casual with some nice dark jeans and a blue short sleeved button down shirt. I could tell he had gotten a haircut or an edge up because the low cut looked fresh. His goatee was neatly shaved, just the way I like to see them on a man. He looked relaxed and in chill mode.

“So are we ready?” he asked.

“Yeah, let’s go,” I replied.

I grabbed my purse, locked the door and we walked out to the parking lot. I wasn’t sure where we were going in the parking lot because I didn’t see his truck. Terry hit the button on his key chain to unlock the vehicle doors. I saw the lights blink on a sleek looking, black sports car that I had never seen before. As I walked closer, I realized that the man was driving a Maserati! I had never even had a ride in a Mercedes in my entire life and here I was getting into that fine car with that fine man, I might add. And that was fine with me.

I began to wonder. Now, since Narika seemed to know everything else, why didn’t she tell me this? At least I wouldn’t have the deer in the headlights look when I saw the car. I will have to cut her some slack considering her present situation though. Last night Terry was driving his Cadillac Escalade. I had no idea he also had a Maserati. The IT business must be nice, I thought to myself.

Terry, being the gentleman he was, opened my car door and let me inside. I smelled the new car scent and inside this car was loaded. Any control you could ever imagine existed in this thing and it looked like it might drive itself. As he walked to get in the car, I made it a priority to get the amazed look off of my face. Stop acting like you’re not used to anything nice, I thought.

Since I already had a surprised expression on my face and Terry probably noticed, I just started talking as we pulled out of the parking lot.

“This is a nice car Terry,” I said “I mean really nice. Look at this panel in here.”

“Thanks. I just got it a few months ago. I always wanted one,” he said “So you really like it?”

“Yeah, I’ve never been in one before so this is a treat for me,” I said.

“Well one day soon maybe you and me can just pack a bag and go cruisin in it somewhere together, near the ocean” said Terry.

“You know I’d like to do that. Cruisin anywhere with you sounds like fun to me,” I said as I smiled.
