In Between Now and Forever


Fathead didn't get a divorce. He somehow smoothed things over with his wife. On the other hand he became obsessed with Cherry. Everytime I came to visit her there was a huge bouquet of flowers delivered from him. She told me that he called her so much that she had to change cell phones and providers twice. When he wasn't calling he was mailing her a cute card from Mahogany for just about every occassion and then some.

When he had her number he sent endless texts ,begging her to come back to him, begging her to let him see her, begging her for a blow job, a kiss, anything. She ignored him. She even told me that he threatened my well being a time or two. It was then and only then that she answered his many calls. She told him that if anything looked like it was going to happen to me...She would never so much as give him a nod. The threats stopped..but the begging didn't.

I had a pistol and I halfway wanted to go and confront the man myself..but Cherry,Gus and 88 persuaded me not to do so. Besides ,I was in and out of town so much that I wasn't a stationary target for any of Fathead's soldiers. He would have looked pretty weak in the streets having to resort to violence to finese a lady. I knew that and he knew that I knew that. This was why I was alive and unharmed.

Yet as persistant as he was...Fathead was not my main concern....It was the man known as Chess. Chess was now living with 88's cousin , Rell, with whom he had a little son with. Chess was also the owner of the apartment complex Cherry and I were trysting in. Everytime his name was mentioned...Cherry got a little misty eyed..a sad look appeared on her face. Of course I had heard the story. Chess and Cherry had been a hot item. Chess apparently was seeing Rell
,then running over to see Cherry. He took her to Puerto Rico for some r&r...Only Cherry hadn't mentioned a little thing about being married...Married to a homicidal jerk. She left Chess stranded in Puerto Rico . As luck would have it..Chess ran into her husband and gave him a good beating and sent him to the waiting arms of the FBI and a life sentence in California...Cherry got her divorce and wound up in the arms of Fathead.

Now she was with neither man..she was with me....or was she? It all came to a head our band's last night in Josie's...The set was just ending and we were getting ready to go on the road for like a month...I could sense something cold and aloof about Cherry all night long. I sat next to her, took a few swigs of tequila with her and then laid my trumpet on the table..

"Reed?" she said softly...I knew what was coming.

"Yeah?" I said.

"We've been having a great time these past few months.." she said.

"Yeah..but- there is always a but....in these types of conversations." I said.

"Well, I think you're a great guy, I really like you, but ...my head is just not fully into this...a full
relationship and I think you deserve better.." she said.

"Wow..I thought I was supposed to say that." I said.

"I've got another man on my mind...and until I sort all of that out, I can't be committed to you or nobody else." she said.

"I could wait for you." I said , already knowing that this line of thinking was futile.

"I don't expect you to do that...if you find someone else....in between now and forever...I'd understand." she said.

"So I'm being dumped?" I said.

"For the time being ,yes...til I can sort some things out..but who knows...anything might happen
tomorrow or the next day.." she said.

"In between now and forever.." I said, smiling wryly... I had nothing more to say..I picked up my trumpet,packed it away and headed for my car without saying goodbye to anybody.
As I opened the door....

'Reed,wait...wait...open the other door...let me in.." she said.

I opened the door and got into the car...she slid in on the other side...It was a very surprisingly foggy night...There was hardly anyone on the street..We sat there in that car for what seemed like an eternity..Then she unzipped my trousers...I was surprised...She was surprised too...

"Oh my God.....How can you be ....erect at a time like this?? Men!!!!!!" she said ,faking exasperation as she lowered her mouth around my rock hard penis and began moving slowly in an up and down motion...I was at first startled...This wasn't her style at all..but I wasn't about to
remind her at a time like this...I slowly began to fondle her breasts,which made her moan and move her head a little faster...

I moved the seats back a bit and straddled her, sliding her panties down and entered her...my pants were down around my knees and anyone walking by would have gotten a good view of my buttocks going up and down as I thrusted with wild abandon....The thought that we were out in the open and might get caught got us even more excited and we both went at it harder...I didn't want to climax because I knew that this would probably be the last time and i didn't want it to end...but nature took it's course and we both came together..shaking and shivering...

We held each other for awhile and then we fixed our clothes and attempted to sit upright. Her hair was wild and there was no trace of make up on her face...yet she looked strangely sexy in the near break of dawn light..

"Reed?" she said as I looked at her...

" Huh?" I said yawning a little.

"I think I've changed my mind." she said.

"What? about what?" I said.

"Well, this was my between now and forever...I think I've made my mind up...that is if you still
want to be my boyfriend.." she said.

"Wow, I screw that good huh?" I laughed.

"Silly" she said playfully slapping my arm...

"There's a Dunkin Donots down the street,let's go get some coffee and donuts." I said as we both
got out of the car and straightened ourselves out.

'Okay and Reed?" she said.

"Yeah?"

"Don't you tell nobody that I gave you a BJ in the car!" she said.

"Who me? Nah....I wouldn't do that." I laughed....but I couldn't wait to tell "88" and Gus.
