My shoulders ached like my bras were hurting me or something.
I had excused myself countless times to adjust it but the damn thing was intolerable. Even putting napkins right under the straps of my bra made me look ridiculous.
Judith suggested I take them off but that would only make me feel uncomfortable. Imagine walking around braless, even the male customers would feel somewhat awkward.
"I'm sorry ma'am.. We don't serve pizza here" I explained to an old woman for the forth time.
"But this is Madea's cafe! She serves everything.." The woman protested further.
"Ayi..pappi.." I sighed
"It's boldly written 'Madea's Cafe' not 'Madea's Pizza place'!" I laughed frustrated by the conversation.
Judith strode over to the counter where we stood and tapped the woman by her shoulder. She turned and glared at Judith.
"What you want here again Mrs. Oberyn?" She asked rudely.
"Pizza. And I was asking this little girl here but she has refused to serve me some." She sulked.
"Little girl?" I asked surprised and was about to continue when Judith gave me a signal to hush it up.
"Uhm..look Mrs. Oberyn. We do not serve pizza. Its the next shop. This is a Cafè shop" she explained calmly.
"Nuh gotta go. Come on" Judith guided the woman out the shop.
I just stood there, confused and some how not concerned at whatever the hell that was.
I'm just overwhelmed I'm finally gonna see Luke! I know it's been two days we saw, but it feels like 2 years!!
I smiled at my mischievous thoughts about him while I made coffee. Too distracted I didn't notice when he walked into the café.
I rushed over to give him a hug.
"I thought you were coming after work"
He didn't hug back, he didn't even give me his dashing smile.
"Baby, what's wrong? Are you okay?" I asked as I pulled him to sit on a chair close to the counter.
He cleared his throat as he brought out an envelope.
"I uh...I was working when this" he waved it.
"Came to me"
"Well, what is it?" I shook my head in confusion.
"I don't believe it. But I wanna know who it is babe" his brows drew together.
"May I at least see what's in the envelope? Please?" I asked and I noticed he was mad but he's trying his best to control himself.
I opened up the envelope only to find a picture of Travis and I, the other night when he held me.
" did you get this?" I furrowed my brows.
"Who is he? And what was he saying that he held you so possessively" he asked and for some reason, his words made me burst into laughter.
"I'm sorry. Did I hear you say 'so possessively'?" I scoffed.
"Babe..I'm serious" his expression dulled.
"Oh my God Luke that is my ex! Travis. I don't know why he came here in the first place but he was acting all weird on me. I asked him what he wanted and he said he wanted me..."
He clenched his jaw as he kept his eyes fixed on me. Lord knows I almost peed my pants while explaining to him.
"I didn't succumb to him or anything. He tried to touch me! Right there..look at this" I showed him the picture.
"The picture was taken to make it look like he's holding me or something but baby no! I love you, I can not cheat on you. I'm not that kind of girl. You know me!" I said disappointed at the fact he was even bothering himself about this.
"Why didn't you tell me?" He took the picture from me, tearing them into pieces.
"I called you several times that night you didn't pick up" I lowered my eyes.
I don't know if this is the right time to tell him about the bird issue but then again, it's better out than in.
"And...I feel someone is stalking me" I looked awkwardly around the room.
"How do you mean?" He furrowed his brows.
"Baby...I received a package of a dead bird" I said in a small voice.
"Gabby...all these, and you didn't even tell me on the phone earlier? What if you were kidnapped?" He whisper yelled.
"I didn't want to ruin our conversation. I missed you and didn't want 'that talk' to come in our way" I felt real hurt right now.
He dragged his chair to me from where we sat opposite each other.
"Don't you know that anything that hurts could ruin me?"
I scrutinized his eyes as I could not find the words to say at the moment.
He leaned and pressed his lips onto mine for a short kiss.
Judith walked in with a smirk on her face and I felt a blush sweep it's way through my cheeks.
"Now, tell me where that Travis of a guy lives" he brushed his hands on mine.
"Babe..what're going to do? Please tell me you won't kill him. Because that's so extreme and wrong" I panicked.
"What are you talking about?" He laughed through his words.
"I'm not going to kill him"
"Oh thank God" I breathed placing a hand on my chest.
"What?!" I panicked again.
He chuckled "If he ever lays his filthy hands on my heart, I'll kill him"
"Why does that sound so sweet and yet scary?" I laughed.
He smirked "Tell me where he lives babe"
"Honestly, I don't know. I hardly paid him visits. But I know where he works". I explained.
" well?" He gestured for me to continue.
"I know, I just wanted you to speak" I gave a lopsided grin.
"He works at a pawn shop. Uhhh...Barry B's Pawn shop at Chinatown street if I'm not wrong"
"Thanks babe" he kissed my hair and stood up to leave.
"Don't you want coffee?" I offered.
"Not really but you would be better" the corner of his mouth turned up.
How evil of him! I'm about to blush my way to heaven right now.
"Not even to go? Why am I even begging you?" I walked to the counter, quickly made him a cappuccino to go.
"Here, we make the finest coffees in town" I handed it to him as I planted a kiss on his chest because I was too short.
"Don't go home. I'll pick you and your brothers up" he instructed before he left.
Judith sashayed beside me with that same smirk still planted on her face like a bomb.
"I suppose that's Luke?"
"You suppose? Who else would I let kiss me?" I laughed.
"I don't know bout you honey but if I had a man, and that sweet looking Greek god found his way into my life? I wouldn't mind kissing" she threw herself dramatically on the chair.
I laughed "that's why you're still single"
"Oh did not just do that single shit to me" She gave me the attitude.
"I did! I did! I j-u-s-t did!" I laughed harder.
"Crazy latina" she poked my head.
"Crazy negro" I poked and took to my heels to attend to customers because I knew she was gonna kill me.
» Luke's Prov. «
His name kept ringing in my head like a fucking alarm.
I wouldn't want Gabby to ever get to see this side of me but if any fool tried to harm her, there's no way I'm sitting back on this one.
First, stalking her.
Secondly, sending her a dead bird.
Then, putting up a stupid picture to blackmail her.
I'm not letting him go easily.
I searched my pigeon hole where I had written down a number and dialed it. Immediately, the person picked up.
"Push,it's me. It's time to return that favour"
