Roles Reversed

And It Begins

Tom and Jude found themselves driving down the busy highway in the awesome car that is the Viper. They were headed towards the mall so they could buy supplies for the spur of the moment trip they were taking. Once they got there, Tom pulled into the parking lot and took up two spaces as he parked. Jude noticed this and said “Afraid someone’s gonna ding your precious Viper?” with a slightly sardonic tone.

Tom looked her square in the eye and replied seriously “Well have you ever seen the damage people can do with their car doors and the price to get that damage fixed?”

Jude rolled her eyes and said “Lets get going, Mr. I’m in love with my car.” as she got out and shut the door a little harder than necessary.

As Tom hit the lock button and walked over to her, he said “As I seem to recall, a few years ago you were in love with your guitar.” with a chuckle. Jude looked at him with her mouth slightly agape and punched him in the arm. “Low blow Quincy, low blow.”

Tom shrugged as he snaked his arm around her waist and walked through the big glass doors.

“What kinda stuff do we need for this trip?” Jude asked, as the wondered aimlessly through one of the many aisles in the store.

“You know the basics pretty much.” Tom replied, as he grabbed a few things off the shelf.

“Okay” Jude replied as she grabbed some stuff and they walked to the register and paid.

“Now do you think we’ll need anything else?” Tom asked as they walked into the busy hallway outside the store. Jude thought and asked, “Is there gonna be a lake on this trip?”

“Yeah, why?”

“I just thought of something I need." Jude answered, as she grabbed his hand and pulled him into a nearby store.

Tom sat on the chair across from the fitting rooms and drummed his fingers on his thighs tapping out the beat of the song on the overhead radio. What is she doing in there? Does it really take twenty minutes to change your clothes? Tom thought impatiently to himself. He looked up as the door opened and his jaw dropped. Jude smirked; she loved the effect she could have on him. He stared at her as she sexily sauntered over to him and did a turn. Damn was the only thing that popped into his head.

“What do you think?” Jude asked, as she did another turn and a small pose.

“Wow...” was all he could say. She was wearing a triangle shaped, deep v neck halter bikini top and boy shorts. That particular shade of blue made her eyes pop and stand out against her pale skin.

“Speechless Quincy? I’ll take that as a compliment.” Jude said, with a laugh.

He regained his composure and said, “You look gorgeous girl”.

Jude smiled and thanked him as she turned to walk back into the fitting room.

Once she was done Jude paid for her stuff and they walked out to the car.

Little did they know that someone was watching them and taking pictures.

Tom and Jude tossed their stuff into the trunk and climbed in and pulled back onto the highway and headed out of town.
