I hated cocky bastards.
And in my mind there was simply nothing worse than some jerk trying to tell me what to do.
So why the hell was I doing ninety on the freeway headed downtown?
It was almost midnight, and I had to go to work in the morning, but here I was all dolled up and ready for Mr. Quincy…ahh… Damn. Ummm…
Anyway, I couldn’t deny that I couldn’t get him out of my head, which was why I finally broke down and called the number on his business card and left a message telling him to get at me the next time he blew through town. I could definitely see a lot of good times between us, but something about him just wasn’t sitting straight with me.
And I typically trusted my instincts.
After I left Bree, I had almost convinced myself to stay in for the night. Besides, who did Quincy think he was to assume that I didn’t have anything better to do with my time than to be waiting on his ass to call?
I hopped in the shower anyway.
When I finally stepped out, I wrapped a towel around my body and dripped all the way into my bedroom to watch television. I did my best to ignore the flashing red light on my phone, but I eventually caved.
One text message. From Quincy.
Why aren’t you in my bed yet?
I despised cocky bastards.
But that shit turned me on.
So I got dressed.
And now I’m speeding in the HOV lane without a dummy in my passenger seat to throw off the cops.
Or maybe I was the dummy.
This wasn’t me.
I would have to immediately handle this situation before it got out of hand. Before Quincy Coleman got too confused about how this shit was really supposed to go with me. Clearly, he was the type who was accustomed to having his way, but I would have no problem schooling him if need be. Let him know up front that his stubbornness was of no consequence. Like when an irresistible force meets an immovable object. Sooner or later, something’s gotta give…
And it wasn’t going to be me.
