Episode 28: Heaven Sent

Terry was on his way to pick me up so I wanted to speed up my beautifying process.  I loosened my hair and let it go free, natural, and wild.  Terry liked it like that.  I was putting the last few bobby pins in my hair when the phone rang.  Of course it was Terry.

“Hey Baby!” said Terry with a little extra excitement in his voice.

“Hey Handsome!” I said matching the happy tone.

“I’m at the gate.  Let me in girl,” he said “I can’t wait to see you!”

“Can’t wait to see to see you either.  Access is granted,” I said as I pushed the number key to let him in.

I had decided earlier to create a relaxing mood and atmosphere for my man, so I had my candles lit, blinds closed for minimum light, lighting just a little low, and the Merlot was chilling in my silver ice bucket.  I had it all set up on the bar, ready to go.

I peeked out of my bedroom window right quick and I didn’t see Terry’s Navigator nor did I see the Maserati.  I did see a nice black Mercedes SL 600 convertible parking next to my little Jetta though.  Terry gets out of the car and reaches over the seat for something.

“What in the world?” I thought to myself as I headed for the door.  “This man has gone and bought another car!”

The doorbell rang so I answered it, all excited, and trying to compose myself.  I admit.  I was so happy to see him.  We both had been so busy during the week and it was time for us to give each other some real attention.

“Who is it?” I asked.

“Like you don’t know who it is,” said Terry.

We both laughed as I opened the door.

“Hey you!” I said.

“Hey, Sweetie!  I missed you girl!” said Terry as he handed me a bouquet of tulips, my favorite flower.  He was so thoughtful.  I was still wondering if he was for real or not, especially when he did things like that.

“Aw, Terry, you are just so sweet.  Thank you Boo! I love tulips!” I said smiling and smelling my tulips.

I put those tulips down and gave Terry a loving, warm, hug and he took over with a ‘I miss you’ kiss.  If he wasn’t holding me up, I would’ve been on the floor because this man still made me feel so light when he kissed me, you could knock me over with a feather.  When was I going to get over that?

I had the stereo playing a CD with some good songs on it.  It was playing “At Your Best,” the version by Aaliyah.  Terry was already pouring us a little glass of wine as I put my tulips in a vase.

“So what’s the plan? What are we doing tonight Mr. Taylor?” I asked.

“Well after we finish this glass of wine here, I thought we’d get another glass at Vino Libro,” he said “And we can get a bite to eat there too.  Is that cool?”

“Yeah, sounds good to me,” I said sipping on my Merlot.

“Plus, I have a surprise for you too,” he said. “You’re gonna love this too Syrah.” he said, smiling and really excited too.

“Really? What is it?” I asked “Now you have to tell me since you mentioned it. You know how I am.”

“Naw, can’t tell you.  It wouldn’t be a surprise if I told you, now would it?” he answered.

“Okay Terry.  I guess I have to go along with you for now,” I said sounding slightly disappointed.

“I knew you would,” said Terry as he kissed me on the forehead.

We sat for a while, just talking, laughing and listening to the music.  Terry just held me close and we finished up our glass of wine.

Of course I was still thinking about the surprise, trying not to mention it again.  The radio was playing Keyshia Cole’s “Heaven Sent” and I was singing along too.  I loved this song.  It reminded me of Terry so much.

“Okay here’s the surprise,” said Terry.

“I looked at him all excited, already smiling.

“You know how you’ve been having some issues with your car and you said you wanted to sell it, right?” he said.

I shook my head yes.

“Well, I got you another one, that Mercedes you saw a few weeks ago that you said you liked,” said Terry “And Baby, it is so nice.  I drove it here.  You’re gonna love it!”

I looked at Terry in awe.  Did I just hear him correctly? I thought to myself.

“Oh my God, Terry, you got me a Mercedes?” I screamed with joy “I can’t believe it! Oh yes, I can believe it,” I said with excitement as I hugged him and kissed him about to knock over the empty wine glasses.

Terry was smiling and pulled out the keys.

“But Terry, I shouldn’t accept a car from you.  I mean…I don’t know what I mean,” I said.

“Well, Syrah I want you to have it.  I tell you what.  Why don’t you just use it until you sell yours,” he suggested “Would that make you feel like you can accept a blessing like this.”

“Terry, of course, I can accept it.  Thank you sooo much!  Why did you do that?” I asked.

“Because I care about you and I want you to be able to drive in peace, not worry about something going wrong with your car,” he said “And plus, I love you like that.”

“Terry, this has to be the best thing anyone has ever done for me.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!” I said as I hugged and kissed him again.

“Come on, let’s go for a ride in your new car,” he said.

We blew out all the candles and he handed me the keys.  This was wonderful!  I was so happy. 

Terry had to be sent from heaven.  Who else but God would send me a man like him?
