Two Opinions


After staying up late all night with Golden I am spent but today is bitter sweet since I will be leaving and going back home even though it was not all fruits and berries I will miss being here

{Knock, Knock}

This must be Hunter so I race down the stairs with my suitcase

Nevaeh: Coming !!!!

I can't wait to hug him. I bust open the door to a big disappointment

Tony: Hello ma'am I am Tony and I will be taking you home today

Nevaeh: Where is Hunter

Tony smiles

Tony: Mr. Hunter has another assignment to attend to so he sent me

Oh great I at least thought I can lay eye on him one more time

Tony: But he did instruct me to give you this

In his hand was a white letter envelope with the my name on it and all of a sudden I lit up like a light I snatched it out his hand and held it to my face to smell it and it smells like him oh my God but when I came back to earth Tony was looking at me strange with his mouth open

Nevaeh: Sorry hear goes my bags.

While I run in to read my letter I race to the couch and sit in the middle ready to read when my phone rings

Nevaeh: Hello

Miceal: Hi

Nevaeh: How are you

Miceal: Fine how are you

Nevaeh: Good.. Last day

Miceal: Yeah I know that's why I took the day off

Nevaeh: You did why I am nobody special

Miceal: WOW you sound like me so humble but I want to

Nevaeh: Okay

Miceal: You dressed

Nevaeh: Yes

Micheal: Well see you in a minute

Then he hangs up

Tony: Ma'am your father is waiting to be picked up

So I grab my jacket and run to the car I waited for

Toney to open the door and when he did I saw a dozen pink Lily Flowers sitting on the seat with a note I gasped and looked back at Tony

Neaveh: He did this didn't he

Tony: Yes ma'am he did

I smiled from ear to ear

I got in the car riding to Miceal house I kept thinking about Hunter and how sweet he is. Dear God where are the men like him at?

The stops and Miceal jumps in.

Miceal: Morning Tony

Tony: Sir how are you

Miceal: Fine thanks. Hunter is his other assignment

Tony: Yes

Miceal: Okay

Tony: Where too sir

Miceal: The Biggest Mall you can find and clear it out too please

Tony smiles

Tony: Already on it sir

He says as we began to drive off.

It was quiet for a moment.

Miceal: So um what does Nia do for a living now

Nevaeh: Well she has her own boutique now where she makes her clothes and sell them and she also does makeup too so she stays busy

Miceal: Good to hear. She been designing forever I use to love to see her drawing

Nevaeh: Yeah?

Miceal: Yeah. I told her she should design for men as well as women of course she said no she wasn't ready

Nevaeh: Well funny thing she specializes in it now

Miceal: Wow that's funny

Nevaeh: I know

Miceal: So What do you do

Nevaeh: Nothing really I just work at the Diner and the Club so I don't really do nothing else

Miceal: What do you like to

Nevaeh: Helping people be better

Micheal looks at me

Miceal: So the bills I remember you saying you pay some. Which one do you pay

Nevaeh: All of the utilities you know gas, lights, cable, phone bill, then I get stuff like food and help out with cleaning products.

Miceal: You handle all that

Nevaeh: Yeah I try

Miceal: So you don't work two jobs to stay up on the latest styles. You do it cause you need to get by

Nevaeh: Yes

A tear formed in his eye

Miceal: Well that's all gone change soon

He says under his breath.

Tony: We are here sir

Micheal: Thanks all clear

Tony: Yes go right in sir

We walk in to the big beautiful mall and my eyes marveled and it was just me and Miceal on this big mall

Nevaeh: This is beautiful where we going

Miceal: Where you wanna go

I was confused

Nevaeh: Huh

Miceal: Since I didn't get a chance to spend time with you as a little girl and you drag me to the mall. Let's do it now

I didn't know what to do so I just hugged him tight too I am starting to think around here they don't do hugs like that

Nevaeh: Thank you

I said choked up

Miceal: It's the least I can do

So we went from store to store I tried on a lot and I encouraged him to try on somethings we laughed and had lots of fun it was the best time of my life

Miceal: Hungry?

Nevaeh: Of course

Miceal: Let's go here I love they're burgers!!

Nevaeh: Okay

We eat laugh and talk to be honest after seeing Miceal at the job I thought he was serious but he is a cool guy well I like him

Miceal: So have Hunter been treating you nice

Nevaeh: Yes he is a complete gentlemen

I get butterflies when he asked about him

Miceal: Is he now. He is always so serious

Nevaeh: No he is friendly

He looks at me

Miceal: He hated he couldn't take you home today and I guess he left you those flowers right?

Nevaeh: Yes sir

Miceal: I think he likes you

Nevaeh: No he is just cool that's all

He looks at me as if he know something I don't and then he was ready to go and of course Tony was out there waiting on us. I get in the car and I saw another car behind us

Nevaeh: Who is that

Miceal: Your Stuff from the mall

Nevaeh: Wait but how

He holds up one finger

Miceal: Don't ask questions

He says with a funny smile and wink. I guess he thinks he sweet he ain't sweet we laughed and joked and got to know each other sung songs and danced in the back seat I even saw Toney moving his head.

Now I am home I look at our condo not ready to go in then I felt a hand on my shoulder

Miceal: You ready

Nevaeh: Sure

We get out the car and I feel like crying but I can't I have to be strong

Miceal: Welp this is it huh

Nevaeh: I guess

Miceal: I wish you would work with me I think you would be a great part of our company

Nevaeh: I would have to think on it

He nods then he wraps his arms around me and hold me close

Miceal: It has really been a pleasure meeting you please don't let it be the end

Nevaeh: I promise and I mean it when I say I will think about your offer

He smiles and as he does that my mom is at the door and running past her is Macy Luke and Matthew hugging me tight

Nevaeh: Whoa okay okay I missed you all too let me go I can't breathe

Matthew: Hi who are you

Luke: And what you doing with our sister

Miceal looks at me

Nevaeh: Meet my two bodyguards Matthew and Luke

Miceal: What's up boys I am Miceal Nevaeh's dad

Matthew: We never met you before

Miceal kneels down

Miceal: Get use to it. You will be seeing a lot of me

Then he looks over

Miceal: And who is this darling little girl

Macy: Hi sir I am Macy

Miceal: What a beautiful name for a princess

She blushes. He is quite the charmer

Then he looks at my mom and I think they have a moment then he nods at her and she back at him. Eww did I just witness a moment.

Miceal: Nevaeh

Nevaeh: Hey okay enough Hunter come on dance with me come on

I grabbed his hand and went towards the dance floor

Hunter: Is that him

Nevaeh: Yes

He shook his head so I stood on my tippy toes and put both my hands on his face

Nevaeh: Enough about him look at me our song is playing

Stand by Me came on and he fell into place the next thing you know we are dancing and it's like nobody is there but me and him our bodies become one and we were into it

Hunter: I left you a note did you read it

Nevaeh: No I didn't at least not yet but I plan too

Hunter: Did you like the flowers

Nevaeh: I love them

His hand tightened around my waist

Hunter: Good

Nevaeh: Thank you

Hunter: No thank you

He bends down a little wrapping both arms around my waist kinda lifting me off the ground with his nose on my neck sniffing me

Hunter: You smell wonderful

He whispers in my ear. As the song ended I took him by the hand to the bar I ordered a cherry coke with extra cherries and some cheese fries

We sit there he looks at me when the drink came I drunk some and offered it to him he took it and drunk some of course the fries come and I put it between us but before he could touch the fries I hit his hand confused he looked at as I grab a fry then I held it to his mouth he laughed and proceeded to take the fry and I got to tell you the way his soft juicy lips took in my finger with his warm soft tongue slowly grabbing the fry while sucking the cheese off my finger it turned me on and while doing it his eyes never left mine and once I got my index finger back I put in my mouth bitting it. And I hear the Dj yelling over the mic

Dj: Oh snap y'all we the one the only Lorenzo in the house!!!!

Girls go crazy but I see him coming my way

Lorenzo: What's good with you little cutie

Nevaeh: Lorenzo hi what are you doing here

Lorenzo pulls out a card out of his pocket and hands it to me

Lorenzo: Please call me when you get started

Nevaeh: Okay I will

Lorenzo: Going to VIP

Nevaeh: I will send two bottles your way on the house

He smile

Lorenzo: See you little cutie

He walked away

Hunter: WOW how much fairy dust did you use on him

Hunter: Need a ride home

Nevaeh: Sure

Hunter: You cold

Nevaeh: A little

He reaches in the back seat and grabs a jogger jacket for me to put on

Nevaeh: Thank you

Nevaeh: So this is your car

Hunter: Yup this my baby

I laughed

Nevaeh: She is cute

Hunter: Why thank you she is my first car so we have a special connection

Nevaeh: Aww too cute

Hunter: Let's see what's on the radio

And oh my God "I have Nothing" is playing

Hunter: You know what I am about to do right

He pulls over gets out the car runs to my side taking me out the car and pulling my close to him we danced when I am with him it's no cares in the world it's just me and him he is really nice

Hunter: You sure know how to break a guy down


Nevaeh: What do you mean

Hunter: I am normally guarded but you break down every wall I have up with time

I look up to see a beautiful moon shining right over us

Nevaeh: Same here

I say wrapping my arms tighter around his neck

Nevaeh: Hunter you are a dream come true

He holds me tighter

Hunter: I could say the same about you my little pouch of fairy dust

He don't miss a beat do he. As the song ended we head back to the car Hunter is reluctant to pull off

Hunter: I don't want this night to end

Nevaeh: What do you mean

Hunter: I like being around you Lily

Lily: I like being around you too

He holds his head down

Lily: Let's go to our spot

He smiles and pulls off as we arrive to the river front he tries to get out

Lily: No let's stay here and watch the sunrise

He silenced the car and turned off the radio and all we could hear is the ocean waves going back and forth we move to the back seat then he pulls me close to him

Hunter: Can I lay on shoulder

Lily:Yes you can

He wraps his arms around me and lay his head on my shoulder I feel like his personal teddy bear I lay my head on his and rub his arm.

Hunter: Can we stay like this forever

Lily: Yea please

And he tightened his grip the next thing I know we were sleep.

The next Morning with the sun kissing our face he was still sleep God he looks so good I just rub his shoulder and watch him then he started moving so I thought he was about wake up but he didn't
