“And do I need to ask for details or are you going to tell me so I don’t have to pull them out of you?”⠀ Laying down, I put the heel of my hand on my forehead. “Can, this man. This man.”⠀ “What? Tell me.” Her eagerness to know what’s going on in my love life, even when it’s not really what I’d call a love life, has always made me laugh.⠀ I chuckle, pause, then sigh. “Okay, so we know I’ve never been on a romantic getaway for two, even when I was dating someone. For not dating Nicco, it was the most romantic two days I’ve ever spent with a man.”⠀ “Details, please.” I can picture her crossing her legs then crossing her hands over her knees, tapping her foot.⠀ “I don’t know any details, but what I do know is that someone broke his heart, enough so that he thinks his heart is empty.”⠀ “I wonder what happened to him.”⠀ “So do I. He’s a closed book. He’s been really open with me about some things, but this, nothing. Whatever happened hit him deep.” I pause. “Then there was a hot tub moment.”⠀ “I’m listening.”⠀ “I kind of, accidentally grazed his p*nis and it was very hard.”⠀ “You touched his d!ck?” she shouts.⠀ “No,” I insist. “I didn’t touch his d!ck. I just, grazed it as I was adjusting my position.”⠀ “Well, what happened?”⠀ “It was kind of odd, but he said he had an idea of how we could help each other. When I asked how, he said he wanted me to teach him how to be tender during s*x and he’d teach me about passion.”⠀ “I’m sorry, he offered you s*x? Is that what you’re saying?”

“Candi.” He chuckles. “She’s a firecracker.” A broad smile spreads across his face.⠀ “She sure is. Tough and beautiful too.”⠀ “Was she giving you a hard time during the shoot?” A small crease forms between his eyebrows.⠀ “No. It’s just, I’ve asked her out twice and she turned me down both times.”⠀ He laughs. “I’ve seen her turn down lots of guys. Don’t take it personally. She dresses se&y as h3ll and has a wild, sassy personality. I think men mistake that she’s easy. But she’s a one-man kind of woman. She’s deeply intellectual and smart-as-sh!t. One of the most dedicated, committed, and fiercely loyal people I’ve ever met. She’s very selective when it comes to men.”⠀ “Here you go, gentlemen.” The waiter places cocktail napkins in front of each of us and sets our drinks on them.⠀ “Hmh. So, I have no chance in h3ll then.”⠀ He laughs again and picks up his drink, holding it out toward me. “You’ll have to prove you’re worthy of her.”⠀ I tap my glass to his and twist my lips to the side. “I’m not sure I’ll ever get the chance.”⠀ “Prove it to me and I’ll make sure you do.” He sips his drink and leans back, crossing his ankle over his opposite knee.⠀ Ruminating on his words, I take a sip of my drink, letting the smooth liquid slide down my throat as soothing jazz music trickles into my ears. First, Candi’s assistant spoke about her with a lot of respect. And now Nicco. I have to get to know this woman.⠀ “Done.” I hold out my glass toward him and he taps it with his.
