A few days had passed since Felicia had the argument with Terrence. To her surprise, she heard nothing from him, not even to check on their son, TJ. Felicia felt that it would only be a matter of time before he decided to contact her or show up at her house. Until then, she was enjoying the quiet of not being bothered by him.
Thinking that she spoke too soon, Felicia reluctantly picked up her phone when the text message alert went off several times in a row. She knew that it would be Terrence begging for her forgiveness and explaining how he had changed. Opening her text messages, she saw that it was Sergio instead. Before Felicia could read the messages, her phone started ringing.
“Hello,” Felicia timidly answered.
Responding in that strong Cuban accent, Sergio said, “Hello, Beautiful! I hope I haven’t caught you at a bad time.”
Smiling, Felicia said, “No, not at all. How are you?”
“I am well! I apologize for taking so long to call you, but I was back in Cuba visiting family.”
“I didn’t realize it had been that long,” Felicia playfully said.
“Oh really? So are you saying that you do not care that I called?” Sergio sounded offended and hurt at the same time.
“No, no, Sergio, that isn’t what I’m saying. I was playing with you; I’m happy that you called! I didn’t mean to offend you,” Felicia stated apologetically.
Laughing, Sergio said, “I was also messing with you, Beautiful!”
“I knew that,” Felicia chuckled.
“Before I go on, I was calling to see if I could take you out for some dinner and dancing on Saturday.”
“And to make you more comfortable, you can bring Jessica along. I have a friend who she may like.”
“Wow! You have thought of everything! Do you mind if I call you back after I talk to her?” Felicia was amazed that he also remembered her best friend’s name. She was impressed indeed!
“Oh, yes, that will be fine. Don’t make me wait too long, Beautiful!”
“I won’t. I will let you know as soon as I know. Talk to you in a little while.”
“Until we speak again…” Sergio ended the call.
Felicia wasted no time calling Jessica. As soon as Jessica answered, Felicia exclaimed, “Sergio called me and wants me and you to go out with him and his friend! They want to take us out to eat and to dinner! Tell me that you will go!”
“Slow down,” Jessica laughed. “When is this date? I can’t believe you actually agreed to it. I’m happy that you did, but I can’t believe it! You may really be over Terrence! I’m so proud of you!”
“Hush, woman! I didn’t say anything yet. I’m waiting on you!”
“Hurry up and call him back! I’m in! I don’t even care who his friend is…I want to see you having some genuine fun!”
“Ok, ok! I will talk to you later!” Felicia quickly hung up so that she could call Sergio back.
“Hello, Beautiful!” Sergio said as he answered her call.
“Jessica and I can’t wait to see you and your friend this weekend…”
