The Quiet Storm
ENTER INTO THE MADNESS.
“Last night was the worst night of my fucking life. I had a fucking gun at my head and was terrified, John’s fat sloppy nasty dirty ass threatened to kill me all because I wanted to help you out and your stupid ass never showed up.” I screamed as I launched at Kristen my ex-sister, roommate, and best friend.
Kristen and I met when we were in the first grade and have been joined at the hip. When we were in the fifth grade she lost her parents in a car accident. My parents were more than happy to take her in. She in a sense became my sister. Once we had completed grade school she becomes Krissy the only time I refer to her as Kristen is when I am about to kill her. After our first year in college, Kristen decided that she could make more money entertaining men. I, on the other hand, was too scared to tell our parents I wasn’t going to complete school so became a doctor just as my father told me to.
Kristen followed her heart and become an escort. One day she plans to go back to school and become a lawyer but right now she likes having all the men drool over her. From time to time she needs someone to help her and I am usually that girl. Last night she wanted to see her part-time lover Rome and needed me to stand in for a few hours. We would split the earnings.
I get there and the guy is fat like Notorious Big fat. He had to have seven or eight stomachs and his breast was three sizes larger than mine. As soon as I laid eyes on him I threw up in my mouth. He was wearing a purple shirt looking like Barney.
Not even thirty minutes later it’s a fucking real-life slaughterhouse bullet were flying everywhere. He had the nerve to grab me up and hold his gun to my head and say he would shoot me. As if whoever was up in his spot gave a flying fuck about him killing. Thank God, the police showed up or I would be dead.
“KAILEY CALM DOWN,” said hollered throwing her hands up in a lousy attempt to stop me in mid-air.
“How on God’s green earth am I supposed to calm down when you almost got me killed? Why didn’t you show up? I answered landing on top of her.
“Kailey I’m not going to fight you. This is a stupid misunderstanding. Let’s not ruin years of friendship.”
“Oh, bitch we are definitely fighting and we are definitely still going to be friends sometimes we just need our asses kicked for the stupid shit we do,” I stated while hitting her in the face back to back.
It’s great that Kristen doesn’t want to fight me she looks real good taking this ass whooping like a woman. Kristen catches me off-guard when she grabs me by the hair slings me off of her, jumps up and kicks me in my ribs 3 times. That last kick took my breath away. A scream of pain left my lips.
I am a good fifty pounds larger than she is never would I have imagined that she would be able to throw me. When in a fight one should never underestimate the competition. Damn, I was not ready for that. Quickly regaining my composure and put my game face on because it was going down.
Once, off the ground, it was easier to attack her like a wild animal. Knocking us to the ground, this time, I was on top of her and pounded her head into the ground then started punching her in the face again. She scratched my face and hit me in the face. Pulling my hair yet again.
That shit hurts like hell. Clearly, this was not thought out. It’s by the grace of God that I won or hell we both just got tried. She laid on one side of the ground and I laid on the other both out of breath and beat up.
Looking over at Kristen I asked,” what are we having for dinner?”
“Roosters sounds great?”
“We need to get cleaned up and get dinner and umm you need a better job, Kristen, last night was scary as fuck.”
“I’m so sorry Kailey, I hope you know I would never put you in any danger, I lost track of time. Rome was giving me that work,” she replied.
We laid there on the floor for fifteen or twenty minutes before mustering up the energy to get up and get dressed.
Rooster was packed as usual. There was nowhere to park. We decided that we would just eat where else. We had to get some gas first. BP was on the corner after parking at the gas pump, I went inside to pay some lady was screaming at the store clerk. The line was out of control.
“Why is everywhere so busy it’s a damn around here tonight? All I want is some fucking chicken and a glass of wine.”
Just as I was opening the door my phone beeped, pulling it my pocket checking to see who was messaging me. My attention was on my phone and not on what was in front of me, and I walked into a couple. We collided so hard I dropped my cell phone.
“SHIT! I am so sorry.” I said slowly looking up to find a pure vision of loveliness standing in front of me.
He had to get you so fuckin sexy smile as I looked him and down. He wasn’t super tall if I had to guess I would five foot ten. He was a deep peanut butter complexion with round eyes. Not large eye they were just very round. From the way his shirt looked one would guess that he had a solid chest. His smile was breathtaking hell I was so busy staring at him I totally forgot to that he had a woman standing next to him.
“You good Ma,” he replied bending down to picking up my cell phone. He handed me my phone and we stared at each other smiling like dummies.
“Nice to meet you Q, I’m Kailey.”
“Kailey, you are very beautiful. Why don’t you let me add my name to your contact? And you add your information to mine.”
We exchanged phones and I added my number. Q gave me back my phone and we stood there smiling at each other again.
“Q did you really just give that bitch your number in my face.” The woman standing next to him said.
Which was my queue to walk the hell away; I don’t have time for silly bitches and their drama. Fucking with Kailey she will get her ass beat all across this parking lot for real.
“Kailey, call me later,” Q commanded.
There was no need for me to respond if he wants to talk, he will call me when he gets a chance. Not to mention that it was very disrespectful for him to hit on me in front of his chick.
Once back to the car I paid for the gas using my credit card pumped it and I was about to get inside my car a voice yelled: “You BITCH!”
I turn to see oh girl charging toward me. There is not enough energy in my body to fight this random chick about her man liking what saw. Before she would get to me Q had yoked her up by her arm.
Just as I got in the car there was a text from my father saying he needed to see me ASAP. Damn, I’m not getting my fucking chicken tonight. I whined as I turned on the car, and headed to his house.
