Felicia had been very candid with Sergio about her relationship with Terrence. From the beginning, they both made a vow to always be open and honest. That would be the best way to work through any issues that may arise. Running into Terrence could be considered one of those issues.
All four adults stood there sizing up one another. Before things could get any more awkward, Sergio spoke up while extending his hand in Terrence’s direction, “Hello, Terrence. I’m Sergio. Nice to meet you.”
Not expecting that, Terrence stuttered as he responded, “What’s up? Yeah, I’m Terrence and this is my girl, KiKi,” Terrence spoke while pointing to the woman standing beside him, barely shaking Terrence’s hand.
“Nice to meet you as well, KiKi,” Sergio politely said.
Turning his attention to Felicia, Terrence asked, “What’s up? How are you?”
Not giving Felicia a chance to respond, KiKi interjected, “And who is this, Terrence? Is this one of your hoes that has been blowing up my phone?”
“Nah, baby, this is Felicia. She just an old friend of mine. Nobody for you to be worried about.”
Right on cue, Felicia finally spoke, sarcastically saying, “Yep, just an old friend. Nobody for you to be worried about.” She could not believe how Terrence downplayed the hell out of her! Still going with the sarcasm, Felicia asked, “Do you remember my son TJ? TJ, say hello.”
Terrence looked at his son, and said, “Hey lil man! How are you?”
Instead of TJ saying anything, he scrambled up to Sergio and grabbed his leg. Sergio reached down and picked him up. TJ continued to look at Terrence as if he was a stranger, holding onto Sergio as tight as he could. Sergio rubbed the little boy’s back, comforting him during this strange encounter.
To make sure that Felicia would experience no more discomfort as well, Sergio spoke up saying, “Well, it was nice to meet you and your family, Terrence. My Queen and I need to finish our shopping so that we can take our son to the beach as promised.”
Seething, but not being able to say anything for fear of being caught up in his own mess, Terrence quietly responded with, “Yeah, man…your son,” through gritted teeth. “See you around, Felicia.”
Not waiting for any more interaction, Sergio, took Felicia by the hand, still holding TJ, and turned to walk away. Felicia was thankful for this soothing and the way Sergio handled the entire situation. She didn’t know what she would have done without him. “Thank you, Sergio,” she whispered.
“Thank you, beautiful! If you had not come to your senses, I would not be blessed to have you in my life. And I would not be blessed with the opportunity to one day make you my Queen forever, and TJ my prince. We were meant to be. If you don’t already see it, you will in due time.”
This was the real beginning of Sergio and Felicia’s story. Sergio was quickly showing that he would do anything for the love of Felicia. Thankfully, Jessica had made her exchange numbers with him on that first encounter. As long as Sergio, could help it, Terrence would become a distant memory for Felicia and TJ.
