“Sunnie Haze” (21)

Amy said she woke up real early this morning. She said she just couldn’t sleep.It was about 6:00a.m. John was already up, he was down stairs in the kitchen.

“Good Morning Love,”John said to Amy “It’s unusual for you to be up already this early. I just made a pot of coffee.”

“I know John,you can smell the coffee brewing up stairs. “It really smells so good!”

“I didn’t sleep very good last night. I’m worried about Alise,she just doesn’t seem like herself lately. We went to the mall yesterday. All she talked about was Stan,and how she misses, the old Stan.”

“Stan has really changed,said John. He is completely different since he had that bad accident at work. I haven’t seen him,in a couple of weeks, since Alise threw him out.

I called the bar where he goes,yesterday. The bartender told me,he wasn’t there. I still can’t believe,he was seeing another woman. Who would believe it was Mary, they really are like night and day.”
John looked at the clock and said, “I better get to work,he gave Amy a kiss,and said to her,”Give the kids a kiss for me,I love you.” Then he was out the door.

Amy woke Lucy and Johnnie up for school,after she drank her coffee. They were both excited about going to school today. Because they only had a half of day. The teachers are having one of their meetings. It gives the kids,a little break.

“I’m sure glad I found another babysitter,on such an short notice. Sunnie was good with my two kids,and they miss her. But they both seem to get along with Mallory,which is good.”

By the time it was time for me to go to work. Which was earlier than usual,Mallory was outside with Lucy and Johnnie. I was getting dressed when the phone rang. I picked the phone up.

The voice on the other line said,”Hello Amy!” Are you still mad at me?”

“It all depends if you broke your relationship off with Stan.”

“You might as well say I did! After Alise threw Stan out,he wanted to move in with me. I told him . “No”! …he got pissed. I haven’t seen him since. Has he been around their?”

“Not that I know of!” “I think if he was, Alise would of told me.”

“I thought, I would call you and ask. Because no one has seen him in a couple of days.”

“Just let it be Mary!” “Maybe Stan will come to his senses,and they could have back, their once, happy family again.”

“That’s okay with me,I think I learned my lesson. Good Bye Sis.”

After Amy hung the phone up,she finished getting dressed for work.

We Walked Hand in Hand

We both walked out of the apartment, holding hands. Until we got to the restaurant down the street.
Before we went into the restaurant,Cliff gave me one of his hot kisses.
He whispered in my ear. ”I love you”
When we both entered the restaurant,it didn’t seem,very busy.
There was the smell of fresh brewed coffee.
The hostess, came over and seated us. We were seated back, in a cozy corner,at a table. We were still holding hands,the hostess probably thought we wanted a little privacy. (Which we did)
With a smile on the hostess face, she said, “Your server will be right with you” Then she placed menus on the table.
When the server came over,He said, “My name is Joe,I’ll be your server. Can I get your drinks, and an appetizer?”
“I’ll have a cup of coffee,it’s smells great.”
Cliff said,I’ll have a tall glass of water, with a lemon wedge. Amberly, what do you want for an appetizer?”
“Just my coffee right now, until we decide want we’re going to eat. You order something, for yourself.” “Okay” “Joe, please, bring me a toss salad, with vinegar and oil.” Joe said,”Right away.”
We both looked at the menu, and decided on the, Pot Roast special, with roasted potatoes, and carrots.
Joe brought back my coffee, and Cliff’s salad. Then Cliff gave the server, our order.

“How’s your father doing?” I asked.
“My father, is recuperating from a heart attack. His doctor, released him from the hospital. Gave him orders, to get a lot of rest. Then things would get back to normal, soon.
My dad is very tenacious. He said, ”Why all this big fuss? You both get on with your life, your mother and I, will be fine.”
My sister Alisha,and I, just looked at each other.
Mom said, “We’re going to be fine. Your father and I, appreciate both of your concerns.”
“My sister and I left, the next day. Mom has it covered. Alisha and I will take turns calling. To make sure, everything is okay with them both.”

“Your parents, sounds like mine, very independent.”
Cliff had a smile on his face. “Maybe someday we will be also.”
Joe came over,and place our food,in front of us. Then he took,the empty plate,the salad was in. “Is there anything else,I can get you both?” We both said,no. Then Joe said,” I’ll be back to check on you.”
Cliff,took my hand in his.He said,enough about my parents.I’ll introduce you to my family,when I go back for Thanksgiving.”
“Let’s enjoy our meal,and talk about us.”
We both exchanged, what happened, after Cliff, went back home.
Cliff looked at me with his alluring green eyes “I was really concerned about my father. But when I found out, he was going to be okay.”
“All I could think about, was you… I fell in love with you. The first time, I met you at our office party. You were sweet,when you asked, if you could sit down at the table, where I was seated. Do you remember, when we talked through the whole party?”
“Yes I do Cliff” “We clicked right away, because we both ,mostly had the same likes. You were very easy to, converse with. You were also very interesting to listen to. I liked you a lot,after that, you seemed to grow on me.”
Joe came over, then Cliff asked him for the check.
We walked, hand in hand,to my apartment.Neither one of us uttered a word.
When we reach my front door, Cliff took me in his arms…kissed me gently. Then whispered in my ear again,”I love you!”
“I love you also” Then we kissed again,this time it was more softer,and much longer. I tried to compose myself, there were goose bumps, going up and down my spine.
I thanked him, for the delicious dinner.
Cliff said,”I’ll call you maybe tomorrow.”
“That’s fine with me.”
“Good Night Cliff.”
I shut my door, said to myself.(Is this really happening?)
