It's another Tête-à-Tête Tuesday with Tyrone. Honey, let me tell you something. You didn’t hear it from me. And the reason I said that is because I’m not gon’ tell you what happened. I’ll let you read it for yourself, girlfriend. And from that point you can make your own conclusions.
But, I will say this…Nikki’s world is about to be turned upside down! I wish her all the best, but something tells me there’s a little more to her story than we thought. I’ll let you read…
Nikki walked into her dark apartment that evening and placed her bags on the floor by the door.
She walked to the bedroom and sat her purse on the dresser alongside her keys. She looked at the bed, where Carlos had passed out from drinking. Against everyone’s advice, she had returned home again.
The day that Wesley took her back to her mother’s house when she had crashed his and Yvette’s date night, she had stayed with her mother a couple more nights. Her sister had spent some time with her and her mother. But no amount of prying the two of them did could get her to discuss the problems she had with Carlos. Her sister was excited about the baby on the way. Her mother was a bit more apprehensive. She had shared that as happy as she was to have a grandchild, she wondered if Nikki’s timing was right.
People often thought they had the best advice. However, Nikki had learned that no one could really tell you how to live your life, or what was in your best interest. If they hadn’t walked that walk, how could they judge or advise you on what to do? Sure, it was easy for Ms. Olivia, Wesley, her mom, and sister, Yamile, to tell her to leave her husband and not go back. But she had made vows of for better or worse, and Carlos was right. She couldn’t keep running out every time the going got tough. Nope, she was determined this time she would stick with her husband and get him the help he needed.
Looking down and rubbing her belly, she thought about the life growing inside of her. She didn’t know if it was Carlos’ or Wes’ baby, but what if God was sending this baby as a warning for her to get her life together? Maybe he was giving her and Carlos a second chance. She had prayed and asked for this baby. And it seemed as just when she began believing maybe God did exist after all, He had blessed her with this little miracle. She was going to purge all thoughts of Wes from her system. After all, he was just part of a fantasy world. What did she really know about him? He had obviously purged her from his system. He had gotten with Yvette either during, or just after, the time he had been with her.
Nikki had been having strong feelings for Wesley for a while. But what was he really made of? And what would happen between them if things got tough?
Maybe my feelings for him are just stemming off what me and Carlos have been going through, she thought not for the first time. What happens when the new wears off? Will I be bored of him, or will he get tired of me? No, I better stay home; at least I know what to expect here, she thought as she slipped out of her pullover sweater.
Honey, what was that hot mess? How she don’t know whose baby that is? Not to mention she gon’ try to blame it on God! God didn’t tell her to be with two different men. Now, I don’t want to be one to judge. But that’s triflin’. Mm, mm, mmm! Honey, I ain’t got time for this! I gots some hair to do. I’ll see ya’ll either at the salon, or next Tuesday. My card’s below.
