The sun beamed through the windows as I scretched my limbs out. I rolled over in the empty bed, pulling at the sheets. Clearly I had forgot where I was, I guess you can say he hit it so good a bitch caught amnesia. I rose up and looked around. It was 1:20 in the afternoon and I was still in the bed. I got up and put on my coat. Evan popped so many buttons on my jacket that I had to hold the top or my breast would pop out. I grabbed my clothes and heels off the floor and walked out heading to the elevator.

The hotel wasn't as dead as it was last night. The elevator was constatly in motion and I had to share it with a group of sidity business people if you know what I mean. I stepped in the elevator and felt so out of place. Everyone was dressed in suits and ties holding briefcases while I was clearly half naked. I know they could tell cause I could feel that they were watching me. One of the men standing next to me was clearly aroused by my attire. He looked me up and down and he whispered to me "Umh, You about to give me "Jungle Fever" woman." I looked at him from the corner of my eye. Before I knew it, the doors slid open to the lobby and a hauled ass to my car.

Driving away from the hotel was bittersweet. Yes, I had the best night of all time but I also cheated on Marcus for the first time. I just dont know if I can even face him without having the look of guilt on my face.

I pulled up in the driveway of my three bedroom home and sat in the car. I pulled my phone out of my coat pocket.

Stacy: Hey gurl, give me a call.
Marcus: Lauren call me!
Marcus: Where you?
Marcus: IM LOOKIN 4 YOU!

Marcus 8 missed calls .. yesterday

I leaned back in the driver seat, thinking about the whole situation. Breathing in the summer air and exhaling slowly before I stepped out the car and headed inside. It was good Marcus wasnt there. I sighed in relieve as I hurried to the bathroom to take a shower. I wanted to wash away the evidence, if there was any. I scrubbed my body with the loafa hitting every known spot. The steam fogged up the bathroom as the hot water sprayed from the shower head, easing my thighs, my back, my neck and all the tense areas of my body. I must admit Evan did a number on a sister last night. I smiled as I replayed the whole event in my mind but quickly stopped myself in the mist of it cause if I kept reminising about it, I might need another shower.

I turned the shower off and got out, wrapping myself in a towel as I headed for my room to get dressed. I decided to throw on a burgandy form fitting strapless maxi dress, since it was hot outside. I put on a pair of sandals and flat ironed my hair bone straight and let it flowed down my back. I looked at myself in the full sized mirror and smiled as the color of the dress was doing wonders for my figure.

I walked out of the bedroom and headed to the front. I didnt notice Marcus sitting in the living room as I fixed my watch on my wrist until I looked up and my gaze fell on his face.

"Where you headed?"

"Over Stacy's, Why?"

"You mighty clean to be just sitting around the house."

I paused for a minute because If I were to say something it might get ugly. I took a deep breath before I spoke.

"Maybe, but you know what they say, if a dog aint getting enough attention at home, then the dog gone roam."

"Now what the hell does that mean Lauren!"

"You should know Marcus, You are the roaming dog, so tell me, where's the home where papa laid his hat last night? huh? cause it damn sure wasnt here."

"Look Lauren, Im not in the mood okay."

"I dont give damn if your in the mood Marcus!"

I flopped down on the living room sofa. Silence crept over the room. Then all of a sudden we went from yelling to talking normal, like we were never arguing.

"I know I left you hanging last night and Im sorry, when I came home and saw the table and candles and you was nowhere in sight, I knew I had fucked up."

"You just cant keep throwing these sorrys around everytime you mess up, its the action that counts Marcus."

He got up and came to sit beside me on the sofa, turning to face me.

"I know and I want to make it up to you."

Marcus leaned in and started kissing me on the neck. His hands roamed up my dress as he cupped my pussy through my panties in his hands. Meanwhile all of this is going on, my phone is vibrating on the side of my breast. Even though I was feeling good with Marcus loving on me, I pushed him off.

"Wait, wait,wait" I said through short breaths. He stopped and looked at me.

"How are you going to make it up to me cause this cant happen .. yet."

"I got dinner reservations at your favorite spot tonight, just me, you and a candlelight dinner."

He leaned back in and kissed me across my chest, my phone vibrated for a second time. Marcus leaned back.

"Ima stop for now cause im bout to go shower but after dinner its on!"

I watched Marcus leave the room as I pulled out my phone to see who it was.

2 messages from Evan.

Evan:What a night we had.
Evan: How bout a round two?

I stared at the text.

I walked to the bathroom where Marcus was and talked to him through the shower curtain.

"What time is the reservations Marcus?"

"At 8 tonight why?" he said as he stuck his head out from behind the shower curtain.

"Nothing .. Im about to run over Stacy's, I'll be back."

".. Aight."

I got in the car and headed over Stacys house. I pulled up in the driveway and got out.

"Hey gurl, c'mon in."

We sat down in the living room.

"I got your text and decided to swing by whats up."

"Oh, I wanted to ask you if you wanted to chill tonight."

"I would but I cant, Marcus got plans for us to go out."

"Out where?"

"To a resturant gurl, He trying to make up for last night."

"Last night?"

"Oh I forgot to tell you bout that.."

I informed Stacy on everything that happened last night.. leaving out my night of seduction.

"Yeah gurl, he left me at the house looking dumb."

"I dont know what I would've done if O.G. left me like that gurl."

"I dont know why you still with Omar ass."

"Cause Lauren, its just something bout him."

"You know the nigga triflin right, hittin everything walking on two legs and you talking bout its sum bout him, bitch you in love?"

"Oh nah, who said anything about love? nah hunty, we just in lust. I aint trying to run behind him all my life."

"Good cause aint got time for you to be a whipped hoe with three kids, running behind yo babydaddy, Lauren he loves me he told me he gone drop all his hoes for me and we gone get married and have a house with a white picked fence around it ---"

"Shut the hell up!"

We laughed .


"Gurl you stupid, so whats gone happen after dinner with Marcus?"

Before I could answer, Evan walked in and immediatly the sexual tension reached an all time max as we stared at each other..
