Meeting Jose

We met Jose, his cousin Devin and his homeboy John by the door of the bookstore and then went in the mall.  John wasn't much to look at but he really liked Destiny.  Devin couldn't keep his eyes off of me but he kept his composure and acted cordial to Keyana.

Making sure that I had whatever I wanted Jose turned and looked at me and said "I would give you the world if I could, I just don't understand why you don't want to be my woman."  I couldn't look at him for a minute.  "Why should I be your woman?"  I turned and said.  "You're all that I want and all that I need and I just want someone like you in my corner."  "You don't know me well enough to say you want someone like me, what if I'm not really the one for you?"  "Well let me be the one to determine if you're the one for me."  I started to laugh and turned and looked at him and said "okay".  We continued on with our day as if we had not just had that conversation. That night we went to the concert and enjoyed ourselves.  It was a concert to never be forgotten.

I wanted to be with Jose but I just couldn't be with him because I was not ready to totally give up the life I was living.  Why should I have one man doing for me when I can have five?  Jose was fine as hell.  He was tall, light skinned, tight body and hung like a horse.  He went to OSU and had money.  Everybody thought because his name was Jose he was Mexican but he wasn't he was black.  Jose played on the basketball team for OSU, one of their star players.  Whenever there was a game he would make sure that me and my cousins name was at the door so we could get in free.  We went to all the games.

The more time that Jose and I started spending together, I found out that we had a lot in common, more than any of the other guys I was hanging out with.  Jose had these dimples that you just had to love and when he smiled he could make the whole world smile.  He was smart and very popular and all the girls wanted a piece of Jose but all he wanted was me and I was pleased to know that.  We would talk until wee hours of the morning whether it was in person or on the phone; we enjoyed each other's company.  Jose always told me how special I was but he never knew that I had a special gift.  A special gift that no one ever knew I had and I was scared to tell people of them because I didn't want people to think that I was crazy.

Jose and I were getting much closer as time passed.  I was starting to fall in love with him the same way he had fell in love with me months earlier.

  1. Jose was describe perfectly! I dang near want to meet him, lol! As usual I would not change a thing. You make it easy to follow Kenya through her journeys and the character descriptions give you a good visual as to what types of people Kenya associates with. Yes, there has been many times that I have been interested in some one, but not in love with them. Simply because I tend to stay away from the "falling in love" thing. and when it seems like it might be getting to that point I RUN LIKE THE WIND. But it is nothing for me to simply "have love" for some one. I sense Kenya might be the same way. In a lot of ways I can relate with her and can definitely see where she is coming from. [sandra]

  2. You are right about a lot of things about Kenya. She tends to run when it comes to love but hopefully one day she will stop running. I am glad that you enjoy each and every blog. It is good to see your comments. It gives me a chance to see what my strong points and my week points and what I can do better to improve my writing. Keep your comments coming because they are helping me to write a great second book. Thank you for your support.
