In the beginning things could be all peaches and cream, then something could happen and you might like where you are headed. Then Boom!!! Your past makes a pivotal appearence and your feelings become confused
Perkins Pool Basketball Court 10:30a.m.
” You can’t guard me , it’s gonna be two dribbles , I’m gonna cross you then I’m in the lane.” Vice said as he brought the ball up court.
“Pass the rock, you ain’t got nothing coming”, a woman shouted out from the stands .
Vice had looked over to see who it was … it was a group of women walking laps around the park. There was a loud one in the bunch tryna get noticed, everyone on the court had paused for a second
” Aaaaaaaaaahhhhhh ! Didn’t nobody tell you to jump ” Vice hollered as he hit the ground after an explosive game point dunk.
That was it for Vice , he had ran 5 games and got a good workout with a good sweat. Every other Saturday Vice got with the guys and played Basketball. Vice took his body seriously and tried to stay in shape as he got older. Basketball kept him in shape and connected to his youthful passion for being competitive.
As Vice sat on the benches and sipped his Fiji water he thought about Sin in a major way. Things had been going great for them and they had been enjoying each other a great deal. Things were moving at a steady pace , but there were parts of Vice that craved a little more of Sin. Sometimes time flies when you are having a good time.
” So you ain’t gonna speak Vee ?” A familiar annoying voice said .
Vice was extracted from his thoughts to be taken back in time . Standing in front of him was love and hate in the same sentence. Roxy short for Roxanne.
Roxanne was the poster girl for chocolate beauty with an attitude. She was about 5’8″ , thick , booty jiggling every where, big white smile, her hair stayed in braids most of the time every now and then she let it down . All men would consider her a cold piece of work. She was bad and she was on a mission to collect his soul. She hadn’t seen him in 3 years , she specifically was looking for him today.
As far as Vice was concerned she was a thing of the past. He and Roxanne were in a relationship for about 2 1/2 years . It wasn’t a bad relationship, they loved each other and got along but Vice seen things going in a direction of where he didn’t wanna be. He had brought these things to her attention , but she dismissed his concern. What Roxanne didn’t realize about Vice was that he was a knowledgeable person who knew what time it was . His purpose in her life was minimized, if not removed completely at the time.Vice left her without a good bye, an argument , or a mild trace of himself. Vice knew that trying to get Roxanne on his same page was like talking to a person who couldn’t hear or understand english. Vice really loved her but not at the cost of abandoning his belief system. She cleary wanted a push over.
“Oh hey, how are you ?” Vice replied with no eye contact as he pulled his phone out .
” Oh I’m fine ” , Roxy said with her hands on her hips.” I really wanna holler at you ” she continued.
” Yeah, what about? ” Vice said in a monotone
” You know what about … don’t act like you don’t know ” Roxy responded with her signature attitude.
What does she want? It honestly can’t be me …I know damn well it’s been more than enough time for her to be over us . I haven’t seen this woman in like 3 years what could she possibly want with me?
” Don’t forget I know where you live ” she said over her shoulder as she walked away switching her booty so hard everybody on the court was hypnotized. It was swinging so hard even Vice became a victim for minute.
” Wash that car ” Roxy said playfully whipping her hair for effect as she walked away.
A text message snapped Vice out of the trance he was in.
Hey Babe, I’m sorry I’m going to have to cancel dinner tonight , something came up …. I’ll call you later 💯😍😍😘😗😘😗😙😍
It’s cool , I’m about leave the court and wash my car. I feel like sliding through the city with the chrome showing…maybe we will bump into each other before the Sun rises.🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄💣💣💦💦💦💦
I’ll call you😙😘😍😘😍. I definitely wanna ride that pony to sleep.
Vice drove down to the car wash and began to detail his car and prepare for a night on the town riding solo.
Somewhere in Akron , Oh 10:16 p.m.
Sin and her friends Passion and Soul , had went and got real lady like. Hair done, nails popped in exotic colors, they went and ran a muck in Saks Fifth ave. They were ready for action and eye candy would be an understatement. They were looking good and they knew it.
They had planned to hit a few spots before heading to a big party that was being hosted by Soul’s big brother . Some of everybody that knows the other half of everybody was more than likely to show up. And it was definitely gonna have the city Akron buzzing.
” Three shots of Patron red box please ” Soul said already turnt up and full of energy.
” Slow down girl it’s only a lil after ten my baby”, Passion said as she lit her swisher. ” So what’s up with you Sin you’ve been quiet all night.”
” I feel kinda bad , I broke off a date tonight with Vice we were supposed to go to dinner. ” Sin replied after she took her shot down ” He was pretty cool about it , said he was gonna ride around and show off his car tonight “.
” What kind of car he got ? ” Soul said as a matter of fact.
” Ferrari ” Sin said .
” Well damn if he rolling like that , when y’all going down the aisle? ” Passion ask with sarcasm in her voice.
” Three more shots of Patron please ” Sin said trying to change the subject.
Although Soul and Passion are definitely Sin’s closest and dear friends she’s very private about her love life. Especially when she like a guy. Mainly because her friends were single and they were savages. Sin once was a savage as well but that changed when she met Vice … She seen that what had developed between her and Vice was headed in a good direction , and she celebrated her happiness in the company of Vice.
Little did Sin know she was gonna run into a small piece of memory lane.
Sin and her friends went for a third round of Patron before heading to the big party downtown.
It was looking like a car show in the parking lot, there were Chargers, Challengers, Camaro, Benzes, Beamers, and whatever car you can think of was out there trying to be seen. The front of the club looked like a Hollywood Premiere, the line was around the corner.
” Hey lil mama remember me, it’s me Max ” a tall dark man doing security said.
