Seriously, Woman?!? What the hell are you doing here?
“Hi! What a pleasant surprise. I didn’t know you were coming to New York.” She said while touching my man’s arm. I was this close to slapping her hand away.
This Joyce woman was about my height, with blond, blond hair, some freaky greenish (cat) color eyes, and had on a tight, tight dress. She looked older, her nose was a bit crooked and she had those pouty Angelina Jolie lips people liked – if one was into those kind of lips. I personally found those lips to make her mouth look too big. She kinda had that “girls gone wild” look with the big boobs and big lips. Great, my competition could model for a “girls, girls, girls” poster.
“Um…I’m here with my girlfriend and her family. Jane,” he looked at me a bit nervous, trying to gauge my reaction, “this is Joyce. Joyce, my girlfriend Jane. You know Jake, over there.” He pointed my brother’s way.
“Hi, Dr. Reid. And you must be his lovely wife, Emily. I’ve heard so much about you.”
With all the intros done, I expected her to skedaddle, but she had the gall to say, “Max, can you come with me? I’d like to introduce you to my family – of course you already know my parents. They’re excited to see you again.”
“Um, okay.” As reassurance, Max kissed me close to my ear and whispered, “I’ll be right back, my precious gem.” Of course, the double entendre was heavy.
If he hadn’t been so wonderful to me all day, I would’ve called him a choice name or two.
“What the hell is she doing here?” I asked my brother. “Did you tell her we were all going to be here?”
“Don’t yell at me, little sis.” He warned. “It looks like she is here with her family enjoying a meal, no different than what we are about to do.”
“This can NOT be a coincidence that she is at Masa of all places, on New Year’s Eve." Alex Forrest from Fatal Attraction in the house! “You must have told her about it. And you,” I accused Nick, “how do you know that psycho, and why are you so friendly with her?”
“Chill out, Jane.” Nick was laughing at me. “Though, I do agree with her, Jake. That girl is a bit weird. Whenever I stop by the hospital to visit you or Max, she’s always hanging around Max. In fact, right before you came back to LA, Jane, Max and I went to a bar to watch a game, and not long into the first quarter, this woman showed up and sat at our table. The weird thing was, it didn’t look like she was meeting anyone else there.”
“You see!” I yelled again, but not so loudly where Joyce and her family would know what we were discussing.
“Whatever. I don’t care. The only one who knew my plans was my PA since she booked everything for me. Aside from her, it was all a secret.”
“Nick, does this Joyce woman hang around Jake as well?” Emily asked.
“I don’t know since Max and Jake are usually together when I go see them at the hospital. But, I don’t think it’s Jake that she’s interested in.”
“I don’t want you getting too close to this crazy woman, okay?” Even now, my sister sounded so cute. By the smile on my brother’s face, he definitely thought so too.
“No, but if you make me jealous for any reason, I’ll make your life a living hell.” Ooh…my sister had a bit of a don’t-mess-with-me, bad girl attitude. There was a threat masked under that sweet smile.
