Rocket Science

A week later, I sat in Josies , alone, drinking a few brews and talking to Gus the bartender and owner of the establishment...

"Hey Junior...What are you doin ridin solo tonight? Where is Cherry? " he laughed..."You two have been inseperable for the past week?" he laughed.

"I'm givin her a break tonight Gus." I said.

Yeah, ever since we had that picnic...I had practically been living in Cherry's apartment....So much so that she went with me to my place to pack an overnight bag so that I could leave from her apartment and make it to work...

''Wow....Am I good or what?" she joked...
"You don't see me for two months straight and now I can't get rid of you." she laughed...

"I can't lie...you are that good babe...I aint never met nobody like you...I aint even gonna front." I said.

"Awwwwwwwww..now that was sweet, I think it was kind of lame,.but I liked that you tried." she said and we both laughed...

I pulled her to me....

"Nah, I'm serious Cherry." I said staring into her eyes....

"Okay....Okay....Don't get all mushy on me...I believe you." she said, smiling sweetly.

Finally,after two more days,  I packed my stuff and went back to my place....I decided that she did need a break from me...

I hadn't called or tried to make contact with Bridget in about a week either...But on the other hand, She hadn't texted me either, which was kind of strange...Since we had started our little arrangement...I could routinely expect an x rated text from her at least twice a week...

"Calvin...I'm horny..."   or Calvin...I'm not wearing any panties..." Which was usually enough to have me racing to my car and going through red lights to get to her....

Which resulted in the two of us damn near knocking the plaster loose on her walls in her bedroom ,having wild sweaty sex..

I went in my phone weeks before and cleared over one hundred of those text messages.....I knew too well from stories I had heard that women like to ocassionally go through their man's phone... I didn't want Cherry finding any texts from Bridget to me... I also took Bridget's number out of my phone...I'd memorized it anyway...I didn't need it in the phone.

My visits to Bridget were restricted to night time only and I always parked in the back...entered from the driveway entrance and exited from it also, just in case someone might be watching...I never went to either of her stores again and never met her in any bar again....

How careful was I?

"Hey Gus?" I asked.

"Yeah kid?" he said.



"Cherry's a nice girl isn't she?" I asked.

"Yeah, she is...She's had some pretty bad luck with the fellas over the years...but from what I've seen ,she's got a heart of gold...Will do anything for you if she likes you." he said.

"Yeah, she's good like that...She's a keeper." I said.

"You like her huh?   You don't need to answer ..I can see it in your eyes when you're with her." he said.

"What do you think about Bridget Jones?" I asked.


His eyes got a little wide, then he smiled...

"I knew her father...I've known her since she was a little girl...real smart girl, another good one....Has made a lot of friends, but still kinda lonely....I remember you used to have a thing for her when you guys were kids...Did you ever get around to tellin her?" he asked.

"Yeah, recently." I said and held my head down...

"You're seein both of em aint ya, junior?" said Gus, giving me the side eye.

I looked up...

"No grass grows under your feet does it?" I said.

"You think all I ever did was tend bar, shorty?" he said.

"What am I gonna do Gus??...I think I really love Cherry...I do....but you know, I waited all my life for Bridget and now I got her and...."I said, before Gus interrupted me...

"Bad Timin right kid? What can you do?  But the way you're goin...It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that you're headed for a bad landing...You'll mess around and lose both....The solution to this is for you to man the hell up....Decide which one of em you really want....Who do you want the most?" he said.

"Well who should I pick?" I asked.

Gus looked at me like I was crazy....

"You want me to dress you in the morning too?  Only you know that, Junior...It's hard...I know, cause I been where you are....You make a decision and you own it....and then be man enough to tell the one who didn't get picked what's up...." he said.

"Okay....That's what I gotta do." I said.

"Junior? Most things in life aint Rocket Science, just a clear choice between right and wrong." said Gus.

"You're a wise dude Gus." I said.

"You don't get my age by bein a fool." he said and winked... "Your tab is on the house kid, Go handle ya business." he said.

II-
I let another week go by...Finally, I texted Bridget...I asked her to meet me at Roxys....The location was perfect...Nobody that either of us knew drank here...It was the type of bar you could meet someone at for exactly this type of thing...

I didn't know how Bridget would react....She never seemed like the vengeful, woman scorned type... Once again, she was late...A half an hour late..but when she arrived...Heads turned and necks snapped...She was a hum dinger.....
"Hi Bridget." I said when I saw her...

"Heyy Cal." she said...

"What you drinkin?" I asked.

"Ciroc, on the rocks with Cranberry juice." she said.

I ordered a Mango Mojito...

"Listen....I've got something to tell you." I said.

"I've got something to tell you too...I suppose you've wondered why I haven't texted you in awhile...I was kind of trying to get my nerve up to tell you, but when you texted me, I figured, this would be the best time." she said.

''Ohh..I see." I said..."Well you go first." I said.

"You're probably not going to like this Cal, but I want to end our little arrangement...I can't do this...This sneaking around all the time...and with somebody else's man at that!...I'm not that kind of woman, Never wanted to be...Plus, I think you love Cherry Johnson more than you realize you do....You need to explore that." she said.

"Wow Bridget...I was coming to tell you the same thing, That I can't do this anymore either....You deserve a relationship that is out in the open, above ground...a guy you can take around your friends...be proud of, talk about..." I said.

"You're absolutely right...and that's what I've decided I'm going to do..." she said.

She smiled as our drinks came....

"Cal, Thank you for making this easy....I thought it was going to be a problem...Turns out we were on the same wavelength..." she said.

"Yeah...."I said...''How about that?"

"Cherry is a lucky woman....You need to bottle up and sell what you got in your pants....Whooooeeee, I have never had so many orgasms in one night in my life....I need to thank you....I needed that....I hope the next guy I meet can at least meet your standard.....It's going to be a hard one to top." she said.

That was high praise indeed from someone I had damn near worshiped most of my young life.....

"I don't know what to say Bridget." I said.

" Just say that you'll always be my friend." she said and stroked my hand gently...

"I hope you find someone Bridget.Someone for you ,Just you. You deserve it!" I said.

She smiled...

"I will....A couple of guys have come in my store and propositioned me already...One looks like he has some potential...Met a guy in Josies last week who looks interesting too....He's blind though, plays the piano." she said.

I wondered who that might be....He couldn't be that blind...Those curves Bridget had would make a blind man see.

I tossed a few dollars on the counter to pay for our drinks....Bridget kissed me gently on the lips and waved..

"Goodbye Cal, Treat Cherry good...." she said as she walked out..

"Yeah Bridget, I will, Good luck to you too, babe." I said.... I sat there after she left for a long time and then I got up and went to my car...



III-

Against my better judgement ,I went to Cherry's apartment...It had only been two days since she last saw me, but she let me in...

"I'm sorry Cherry, I know it's only been two days but..." I said before she cut me off..

"You missed me right?"she said with a smile...

"I did." I said.

"Wow....I'm not used to this....Guys I meet see me when they can....Either when their other girl was looking the other way or when they could get a moment...."she said.

''Yeah, it has been too soon...I'll go." I said.

''No...No..No...This I like...We aren't sneaking around....This is what I've wanted, Someone for me, Someone like you..."she said with the sweetest smile...

I came in and closed the door and pulled her to me and kissed her for a long time....

"You didn't bring a change of clothes..." she said.

''Well maybe I won't stay." I said.

"You know you're going to stay." she said...

She gently ran her hands down the front of my trousers,stroked my now raging erection gently and just gasped...


''Oh My God..."she said.

"What?" I asked laughing sheepishly...

"I'm always surprised at how big it is, how thick." she said...

"Yeah ,me too..." I laughed...

We continued to kiss in her living room....She took my hand and walked me to her bedroom...

"I missed you too Cal, but I didn't want to seem ,you know, thirsty..." she said...

I lifted her up.
She was wearing a short brown nightgown that came to her knees...I hiked it up, slipped her panties down and off and entered her slowly...

''Ouuuuuuuuu..." she moaned.

"I'm Thirsty for the both of us." I said.

"Thank you.." she cooed.

She was so soft, so warm,so wet....I could've stayed inside her like this forever , I just kept moving slowly,savoring every minute,every second and she kept moaning and  and cooing so sensually...and I kept moving in and out ,in and out softly, gently with no signs of stopping anytime soon....I was sweating profusely....so was she.....Enjoying myself imensely....How could anybody feel this good?



''Oh Cal...Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Cal...Ohhh Cal, I love you baby...I love you..." she said.

I found myself saying-''I love you too Cherry...ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh." I screamed...

She grabbed me and began kissing me slowly.... Which made me even more excited.

Wow...I had never yelled that out before.....and I wondered if she had herself.......At any rate ,it was good to hear!


EPILOUGE:

The next night, Josies was crowded....Cherry and I came in hand and hand... My good friends, Paris, Blake, Chance Howard, Anita Jenkins, Cole, Nicole Butler and Honey Brown and B-Flat were there......

I saw Bridget talking to the Blind Piano player, Chazz Gillison...She saw us and she smiled and waved...

"That's your friend Bridget." said Cherry.


''Yeah so it is."I said...Bridget and Chazz? What? I thought! Nahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

"Seems like that Blind Piano player has taken a liking to her." said Cherry.

I kept looking at Chazz...Something about his movements....It was almost as if he wasn't blind at all...He was really checking her out and salivating...I wondered if he was really blind...or if that was a front?

"Cherry, all I'm lookin at is you right now darlin....Let's get a booth, a private booth in the corner." I said.

Cherry blushed....

''You naughty boy...Why you want a private booth?"

"Because the thoughts you're given me isn't for the public." I said...

Cherry laughed...."Ouuuu, I like that." she said and busted out laughing.

We walked toward our booth and I just happened to see Gus , heading toward the front...He looked at me and whispered -

"Guess you made your choice huh Junior?" he said.

"Yeah man." I said.

"See,I told ya it wasn't rocket science." he said and smiled.
