The next day, I woke up in Dante's arms. I snuck out of the bed quietly and went to the rest room. It was only eight in the morning, so I crawled back into bed with him. He pulled me closer to him. "Where did you go sugar?" He asked me.
"I had to use the restroom." He nuzzled closer to me. I started to close my eyes when we heard a loud buzzing noise. I sat up and looked around the room.
"It's my doorbell sugar." Dante got out of bed and pulled some pajama bottoms on. "Stay here, okay?" I nodded at him.
I knew it was Sierra, she is the only one who rings my bell like that over and over. I couldn't let her see Beth. I got to the door and cracked it open. Sure enough, there she stood. "Dante, what are you doing? Let me in." I just shook my head.
"Not today, why don't you run off to your Mr. Jackson and get that divorce going." I said smiling at her.
"What are you talking about Dante, baby? Come on let me in." She pushed her way inside and I closed the door.
"You need to leave Sierra." I said, getting pissed off. She turned to face me and dropped her coat onto the ground. When I looked up, I saw her in nothing but a pink thong. "Put your clothes back on and go home Sierra." I said. That's when I saw my angel come out of the bedroom.
Sierra turned to see Adriana. "What the fuck are you doing here?" Sierra said. Beth just stood there shaking her head.
"At least now I know the truth. When my father finds out about this, your toast." Beth said. All of a sudden Sierra started to laugh.
"Your daddy is in love with me little girl. He is never going to believe you." Then Beth started to laugh.
"You crazier than I thought." Beth said to her. Sierra grabbed her coat and covered herself.
"I can't believe your fucking this little slut." Sierra said to me.
"Get you ass out of my house, and if you come back here one more time Sierra, I swear I will get a restraining order." I spit out. She rolled her eyes at me and headed towards the door. She turned before she left and looked at Beth.
"He will never be yours little girl, he will always belong to me." She snapped and left.
I turned and headed over to Beth. "I'm so sorry sugar." I said, as I wrapped my arms around her.
"Don't be sorry, she just confirmed everything you told me. I need you to take me home. I've got to see my father, before she fucks with my family." Beth said. I nodded at her and we both went into the bedroom and got dressed. As we were headed down to the car, Beth's phone went off. She looked over at me. "It's Allissa." She said. "I can only deal with one problem at a time, I'll call her back later." She said, and put her phone on her pocket. I nodded at her as I opened the car door for her.
"Do you want me to come in with you?" I asked her. Even in her, just woke up phase, she was breath taking to me. I was falling hard for her.
"No, I need to talk to my father on my own first." I nodded at her and headed out. The car came to life as my phone went off. Not thinking, I answered my phone.
"Dante Marks." I said.
"Dante, hello. This is Allissa." I turned to look at Beth. She put her finger to her lips.
"Hello Allissa. What can I do for you?" I asked.
"Have you seen Beth lately?" She asked.
"I have not." I said. Beth smiled at me.
"I've been trying to call her, but she is not answering for me. I wonder is she changed her mind about us? I just want you to know, that is she has, my mind about you hasn't changed." I saw Beth shake her head.
"What do you mean Allissa?" I asked her.
"I mean that I want to be with you." She said.
"I'm getting ready to go into a meeting Allissa, can I call you back?" I asked.
"Of course, don't forget okay?" She said.
"I won't, goodbye Allissa." I said, and hung up the phone.
"What exactly is going on with these women?" Beth said. I took a deep breath.
"It's you that I want sugar, not them. Not anyone else." I smiled at my angel. She placed her hand on top of mine.
"I know." She said. I pulled up to her home and she kissed me on the lips before she jumped out and told me she would call me later. I watched her take off towards her house and I drove away.
I walked in the front door and found my mother in the kitchen cooking. "Hey baby, where have you been?" She asked me.
"Just out, has dad gone to work?" I asked her.
"No he is in his office. He is going in late today." I nodded at her and ran off to his office. I knocked and waited to hear him.
"Come in." He snapped. Great he was in a mood. I walked in and he looked up at me. "Just the person I wanted to see." I was confused. He stood up. "We're you with Dante Marks?" He spit out. I just shook my head.
"Yes, but you have got to listen to me." I said.
"I thought I told you to stay away from him." He spit out.
"You did, but listen." He cut me off.
"Do you enjoy defying me?" He said. Are you kidding me. I said to myself.
"She is lying to you!" I shouted. "She thinks your in love with her." My father looked at me in shock.
"Is that what he told you?" I just laughed.
"No daddy, that's what SHE told me." He looked even more confused.
"What are you talking about Beth?" He asked me.
"Daddy, Dante showed me proof of him trying to divorce her, but she won't sign the papers. Then she showed up at his place this morning. She was naked in front of him trying to get into his bed."
My father stayed quiet for a minute. At least that meant he was analyzing what I was saying. "This doesn't make any since." He said.
"Yes daddy it does, she wants Dante back, but she is giving you a sad story so she can get your help and sympathy." I said. "Check into it daddy, I know that you can. Dante is not the bad guy here." I said. My father sat back down.
"Baby, why do you care so much?" He asked me.
"Because daddy, I might be falling for him, and I know he is telling me the truth." My father watched me for a moment.
"I don't understand, I thought you like women only?" I smiled at him.
"I did too, but I guess things in life just change. Sometimes your thrown a curve ball and you can either choose to ignore it or react to it." He smiled at me.
"I will check into this Beth, but I'm not promising you anything." He said.
"You had better be careful dad, before she comes after you and mom. He started to laugh.
"Nothing will ever come between your mother and I, that I can promise you. Your mother is my princess and will always be. Besides, your mother would kick her ass." We both laughed, because we both knew that was true.
"Can you do me one favor?" He asked me.
"Sure daddy." I said.
"Stay home today until you hear from me?" I took a deep breath. I nodded at him and left his office. I closed the door behind me and went to my room. I decided I needed to talk to Allissa. It was time to let her know how I felt. I didn't really think she was going to care. I knew her mind was set on Dante not me, but it was Dante that was going to have to let her know how he was feeling, not me. I pulled my phone out and gave her a call, but she didn't answer. I sat my phone down and headed to the shower.
When I got out of the shower, I wrapped myself up in a towel and headed to my closet. I stopped and turned back around to see Allissa sitting on my bed. I almost jumped out of my skin. "Allissa, what are you doing? You scared the shit out of me." She looked over at me and she looked upset. I held onto my towel and went to sit next to her. Her eyes scanned my body for a moment, then she moved closer to me and tried to kiss me. I moved away from her. "We need to talk." I said.
"So it's true then?" She said.
"Is what true?" I asked.
"You don't want us anymore?" Her eyes kind of lit up when she said this. Almost like she was happy about it.
"No Allissa, not us. Just you." I know it was a cheap shot, but she made me upset. She looked confused. "You have been over me since the morning at Dante's house. I felt it then. So don't come over here acting like you want me. When it's Dante you want." I said. She looked shocked. "Yeah, you have a hard way of hiding your feelings." I said. "I'm done with you, as far as Dante goes, well you will just have to talk with him about that." I could see the anger building up in her face.
"Beth, I." I stopped her.
"I don't even want to hear it Allissa." She looked almost pained. "Oh, and if your still talking or seeing my brother, it ends now." I said. She just looked at me and I could tell she was struggling with her words. Even though I knew it was Dante I wanted, I felt a sting of pain for Allissa, because I did care about her. I enjoyed being with her, but for her to go behind my back without even talking to me first. It showed me just who she really was, and she is the one who pursued me in the first place. It hurt my feelings.
I watched her say nothing as she left my room. I was sure she was headed over to Dante. I pulled my phone out and gave him a call.
"Is everything okay sugar?" He said without saying hello.
"Yes, everything is fine, but I'm pretty sure Allissa is on her way to you." I said. I heard him take a deep breath.
"Why?" He asked me.
"Call it a hunch, but she was just here and I told her how I felt. I ended it with her. I told her she had to talk with you, when it came to yours and hers feelings about each other. So, I'm pretty sure she is on her way to you." I said.
"Can I ask you a question?" He said.
"Yes." I said.
"Do you want to be with me sugar?" He asked me. I took a breath in.
"Like as your girlfriend?" I asked him.
"Yes Beth, as my girlfriend." He said.
"You know I do Dante." I said.
"That's all I needed to hear." He said. Then I heard loud noises downstairs.
"Dante I've got to go, something is going on downstairs." We said our good byes and I went in search of the sounds. When I got to the railing I saw my father and my mother standing in the living room. My mother looked upset with tears in her eyes.
"How could you do this?" My mother said.
"Princess, do you really think I'd do something like that to you. After all we have been through." My father said. What the fuck was going on? I said to myself.
