The Poison Dream; Exerpt from Chapter 3


“Jen, you’re a people saver; you don’t want to see anybody hurt or unhappy. I understand that; I lover you for that, but we’re running out of room.
“I’m sorry . I’ll quit, I promise. And we’ll talk about that love thing later.”
“No, I know you better than that. You won’t be able to quit until we’re completely out of room. Just be picky; after Kenny we only have room for one more.”
“Does that mean she can stay?’
“I would like to reserve an answer until we talk about this love thing as you put it,” he replied grabbing my arm and steering me toward my room. “Kendra do you mind?”
“Not a bit,” she commented grinning ear to ear, “it’s about time.”
I rounded on him as soon as the door clicked closed. “Oh, you love me hu?”
“Yea.”
“So much that in all the time we’ve known each other, and have been intimate together that we haven’t kissed each other?”
“That was just as much your fault as it was mine.”
“Okay, I’ll agree to being timid to initiate a kiss even though we were more intimate; but how about leaving the next morning without a word and never coming back?”
“Considering the memories our coupling brought you, I figured it was better not to be around.”
“I knew you read my journal. James, even though it was addressed to you, it was my journal or diary if you like. Sometimes it’s easier to get my thought’s straight if I address them to the person or thing their about. You were never meant to read that. I wasn’t ready to talk to you about our intimacies and the memories they invoked. My thoughts weren’t straight; then you left and for days afterward I would think I herd your truck so I’d run to the window; and nothing.” I poured it all out before I turned to look out the window.
“I’m sorry I didn’t stick around and talk to you about it. Would you like to talk about it now?”
“Not really, I’ve dealt with the .”
“What about our love making?”
“Why don’t you move back in here with me and we’ll find out?” I turned and wiggled one dark eyebrow.
He started moving toward me; I put up a hand to stay him, “First, we’ve got to take Kendra back. Lance will be expecting her; so we’ve got to make a decision.”
“You know I could never say no to you. Besides M.J.’s been driving me crazy.”
“Ahh!” I yelled, jumping up clasping his neck with my arms and legs about his waist.
“Shit!” He said as we fell back onto the bed. “I love you.”
