Codename: Bonnie and Clyde 2.14

Chapter 2
2.14 One of them: Pillow Talk

“Miss Chanel I am a man of my word.” Mayor Cabrera said as he handed Angelica a stack of hundred dollar bills. Angelica was stunned by the amount of money he had handed her. She thumbed through the bills and counted a thousand dollars.

“All this for me dancing on a stage ten feet away from you?" "You wouldn’t be trying to buy something else now would you mayor Cabrera?” Angelica asked.

“Of course not.” He said with a mischievous grin.

“Good because you don’t enough money to buy me.” She replied cockily.

Diego laughed, “I like you.”

“I can’t imagine that a man like you would like a girl with a sassy attitude like me.” She said.

“I admire a woman who speaks her mind.” Diego said. “And I love a woman who knows her worth.” He added.

“That’s ironic a stripper who knows her worth.” Kimura laughed.

“I believe these regular women could learn something from these strippers.” Diego told Kimura.

“Enlighten me.” Kimura said curiously.

“In my hood women give themselves body and soul to no good men and expect little to nothing in return, but in this environment nothing’s free.” Diego said. “These women in there won’t even talk to you for free.” He added.

“I know, I have taught them well.” Kimura said with a smile.

Diego turned to look at Angelica. “It's not just about the money any man that wants you should be willing to work for it, pay for it or beg for it.” Diego said.

“Are you talking about yourself Mr. Powers?” Angelica asked.

“Of course, I’m not to proud to beg.” He said with a grin as he grabbed her hand and kissed it. “So what’s up with you are you single or what?” he asked.

“I’m married.” She answered.

“Your husband let's you work in here as fine as you are?” he asked.

Angelica giggled, “Keep it up flattery gets you everywhere.” Angelica smiled.

“Will it get me a dance in one of those private rooms?” he asked.

“I don’t know the mayor just gave me a thousand to dance on stage, what you got?” She asked.

Kimura smiled, “I knew making you the manager was a good move.”

“You are going to have to give this one a raise.” Mayor Cabrera said.

“Two hundred and fifty gets you a hour and a bottle of champagne.” Angelica said. “Then there’s what you have to give me.” She added.

“Tell me what you are worth.” Diego stated.

“You don’t have enough to pay me what I’m worth but I’ll make you a deal.” She replied.

“How do you know what I got?” he asked.

“I don’t but I know what you don’t got, me.” She replied. “Having me would be an upgrade on your entire life.” She added. “You can’t put a price on success papi.” She smiled.

“How about two thousand?” he asked.

“That’s a start.” She said as she stood up and took Diego’s hand.

Daniel watched from the bar as Angelica led Diego into one of the private rooms and Kimura walked mayor Cabrera out. “Hey where is Chanel going?” Daniel asked Han.

“It's probably better if you don’t know.” Han laughed.

“What do you mean?” Daniel asked angrily as he grabbed Han by his collar.

“Hey don’t kill the messenger money entices even the most faithful of women.” Han said. “But who knows they might just talk, I highly doubt it but stranger things have happened.” Han told him.

“Is Kimura forcing my wife to sleep with that guy?” Daniel asked as he let Han go.

“No, man." "That’s up to her.” He replied.

Daniel nodded his head. “Okay.” He said calmly as he started towards the private rooms.

“Hey! Carter I’m telling you, you do not want to do that.” Han said as he grabbed Daniel’s arm.

“Get your hands off me!” Daniel exclaimed.

“Okay my bad.” Han said backing off.

Daniel stormed past the guards into the private room where Angelica was with Diego. “You look worried.” Angelica said with a cocky grin as Daniel burst into the room.

Daniel looked around the room and his emotions went from anger to confusion. “What’s wrong with him?” Daniel asked when he saw Diego.

“He’s drunk, he’s a lightweight.” She laughed. Diego was passed out on the couch and snoring loudly. Angelica got up from the couch and slinked provocatively over to Daniel. “He sang like a canary, I know what Kimura and the Mayor are up to.” She whispered in his ear.

Rockcity Rapland 2.14

Chapter 2
2.14 The One: First Time

Just as Camilla agreed to stay with Alejandro the waiter came out of the kitchen with their food.

He sat the food down on the table and said, “Can I get you guys anything else?”

“No thank you.” Alejandro replied. “So is that a no to my proposal?” Alejandro asked Camilla.

“Alejandro don’t you think us getting married is crazy?” she replied seriously.

“Maybe its crazy to you but not to me because I’m in love with you.” He stated.  

“Stop saying that you barely know me!” she exclaimed.

“I fell in love with you the moment I laid my eyes on you two years ago at that Christmas party at my house.” He said.

Camilla laughed, “I remember that night.” “I had the hugest crush on you I thought you were so mature because you were in college and stuff.” She smiled.

“Well what happened between then and now?” he asked.

“Are you serious?” she asked. “You murdered everyone I loved.’ She said angrily.

“Don’t marry me for love then marry me for revenge.” He said pleading.

“What?” she asked confused.

“You said your father never got his due so marry me and get what you both deserve.” He told her.

“You want me that bad that you are willing to take whatever you can get?” Camilla questioned.

“No I love you that much that I’m willing to take a piece of you if I can’t have all of you.” He answered.

Camilla was touched by what Alejandro said and she could feel herself tearing up. “Lets say grace my food in getting cold.” She said holding back tears. Alejandro reached across the table and grabbed Camilla’s hands.

“Bow your head.” He told her. “In the name of my Lord and savior Jesus Christ bless this food, the preparers of this food and my beautiful wife to be. Amen.” He said with a smile.

“You are very confident.” Camilla said.

“Jesus says claim what you want in his name.” he said then stuffed a forkful of food into his mouth.

Camilla laughed and shook her head. They had a nice quiet meal where they didn’t yell or argue. They were actually getting along and Camilla’s heart was softening for Alejandro. When they were done with dinner and on their way out to the car Camilla stopped Alejandro at the front door of the restaurant.

“Yes, I’ll marry you.” She blurted out as she grabbed his arm.

Alejandro turned to look at her, “Are you sure?”

“Yes I’m sure.” She replied.

“Why did you change your mind?” he asked.

“I want more than my father had,” she explained. Alejandro began to smile as he picked her up and kissed her passionately.

“I’m going to make you love you me.” He grinned as he spun around with her still in his arms.

“Okay put me down.” She laughed.
Alejandro was ecstatic on the ride home and Camilla couldn’t deny she was happy too. Neither Camilla nor Alejandro thought about Angelo and how he would feel about their engagement. As they pulled up to the house it suddenly occurred to Camilla. She quickly turned to Alejandro and grasped his forearm.

“You have to let me tell Angelo.” She said.

“Okay but tell him soon.’ He replied reluctantly. Camilla nodded her head.

As they entered the house they could hear the TV on in the living room. Camilla walked past the living room and went straight to her bedroom while Alejandro went to the kitchen. Alejandro stood in the kitchen and poured himself a celebratory glass of whiskey. He heard the TV turn off then he saw Angelo go upstairs after Camilla.

Angelo wasn’t angry anymore and he wanted to tell Camilla he was sorry for how he had acted.

“Camilla.’ He called out as he knocked on the door.

“Come in,” she said.

He opened the door and came in with his head down and the look of shame on his face. “How was your date?” he asked as he shut the door.

“It was okay.” She said.

“I wanted to apologize for how I behaved earlier.” He said as he sat next to her on her bed.

“It’s cool I forgive you.” She said.

“Its just I’m falling in love with you.” He blurted out. “And I can’t stand to see you with him.” He added.

“You’re falling in love with me?” she asked shocked.

“Yes.” He confessed as he turned to face her. He gazed into her eyes then he leaned in and kissed her. He ran his hands through her hair and pulled her closer to him. She wanted to tell him to stop but she liked the way he felt so close to her. He began to kiss her neck as he laid her down on the bed. He slowly climbed on top of her and slipped his hands under her dress.

“I’m a virgin.’ She whispered.

“Don’t worry I’ll go slow.” He told her.

I Know Your Type 2.14

Chapter 2
2.14 The Beginning of the End: Repercussions
Meredith had left the lab and Dylan just stood in the parking lot with his hands in his pocket thinking. This is crazy, he thought. “If I had known this would happen I wouldn’t have cheated on Dawn with Meredith eight years ago.” Dylan said to himself. Dylan shook his head as he took his phone from his pocket and called Dawn. As the phone rang he walked over to his car and got in. Dylan sat in the drivers seat with his keys in his hands impatiently waiting for Dawn to answer the phone.

“Hello.” Dawn said.

“Where are you?” Dylan asked angrily.

“Don’t you have more pressing issues to be concerned about?” Dawn asked.

“No Meredith has gone home so I’m back to being worried about you.” Dylan said.

“Well I’m a big girl I don’t need a chaperone.” She replied with an attitude.

“Dawn what is going on with you?” he asked. “You aren’t acting like yourself.” He added.

“You think you know me now?” Dawn asked.

“Well yeah we dated for seven years.” Dylan stated.

“And we’ve been broken up for eight!” Dawn exclaimed. “Look you made your choice and you don’t get no second chances in life.” Dawn said. “I suggest that you go and make up with Meredith because I don’t want you.” She added.

“Where are you?” Dylan asked sternly.

“At lunch.” She replied annoyed.

Where at?” he yelled.

“I’m at The Pit.” She answered.

“Don’t leave.” He ordered then hung up the phone.

Dawn watched the door of restaurant as she waited for the waitress to bring out her food. Her eyes lit up as when this tall, dark and handsome man walked in. He was muscular and all sweaty like he had just come from the gym. He had piercing green eyes, caramel skin and jet-black hair. She stared as he wiped the sweat from his brow. His white tank top clung to his wet body and she could see every rippling muscle. As he looked up Dawn caught his eye, he smiled and winked at her as he proceeded to the counter to order. Dawn began to blush as she smiled back. She was thinking of a way to start up a conversation when Dylan walked through the door. Dylan looked upset as he spotted her ogling over the hot sweaty guy at the counter.

“Ahem.” He said as he approached her.

Dawn turned around and rolled her eyes. “Yes Mr. Curtis what is your problem now?” Dawn asked sarcastically.

Dylan sat down across from her with an angry look on his face. “What was all that with the new guy at work?” he asked demandingly.

“I’m sorry but I don’t know what you mean.” Dawn replied nonchalantly.

“You are acting like a slut.” He said through clenched teeth.

“Excuse me?” Dawn asked defensively.

“Look at how you are dressed and how you are acting.” He explained.

“Just because I’m interested in someone else that doesn’t make me a slut.” She said.

“Ma’am here’s your food.” The waitress said as she walked up and sat Dawn’s food down on the table.

“Thank you.” Dawn replied.

“Sorry but I got to go.” Dawn told Dylan as she stood up to leave. Dylan grabbed her arm and she snatched away knocking over her chair.

“Is everything alright over here?” The hot sweaty guy asked as he approached their table.

“You have got be kidding me!” Dylan exclaimed as he stood up. “Mind your fucking business!” Dylan yelled.

“I’m not talking to you I’m talking to the lady.” They guy replied.

“I’m fine it was an accident I was just leaving.” Dawn said.

“Oh, well let me walk you to your car.” The guy said.

Dawn gave Dylan a disgusted look then turned to the other guy. “Thank you, I would like that.” She said with a smile.

Dylan was just about to follow Dawn and the guy out when his phone rang. He let out an angry sigh. “Hello?” He said as he answered the phone.

“Yes is this detective Curtis?” the person on the line asked.

“Yes this is he.” Dylan replied.

“Sir your fiancée has been in a car accident we have her at Miami General.” The person told him.

“What? is she okay?” he asked stunned.

“She’s stable but I’m sorry to inform you she lose the baby.” The person told him.

“I’m on my way.” He said as he hung up the phone and raced out of the restaurant.
