Diamond Mitchell Peterson wasn’t thinking straight when she got out of her car. Everything in her head told her to not to get out of the car. This strange man was there from the bus stop and he shouldn’t have been.
Yet, she wanted to see him. She wanted to see a lot more of him, but was too shy to even ask. Lately men had not been at the top priority of her lists due to her work life and when she finally had time to explore her personal life, she had pushed too much off the table to even try to get back into the ease of finding someone to be with.
Since meeting him the other day and seeing how he’d bravely come to her rescue without causing much of a scene, she had thought of nothing but him.
The worry of how the stranger found her was briefly, but after a small moment of distrust, Diamond had no doubt at all she wanted this guy.
Yet as he walked out of the door, cutting what could have been a very nice afternoon of sexual delight for Diamond, she was speechless as to how to stop him from leaving.
That was until she heard the fight outside.
Running out of the door, forgetting her purse she came upon Rob and Rube going at it. To her surprise, Rob was winning!
Rube must have caught him off guard initially, but one punch too many was enough to charge Rob’s rage that she’d never seen in a man.
Somehow Rob had gotten Rube to his knees and punched him in the face double time in quick successions. Rube was sent down on his back in the middle of the street out cold.
As a courtesy, Rob dragged Rube out of the cars path to the apron of the driveway.
She ran up to Rob. “Are you okay?”
He only put a hand up to halt her from, taking anymore steps closer to him as if in warning.
“Look, woman, as much as I want to carry your fine ass back in that house and fuck you, I can’t.” He was heaving hard and rubbed his knuckles for comfort. “I got my own shit keeping me back. So just leave it be and tell your boy when he finally wakes up to stay the hell away from me.” He slammed in his car and drove away burning rubber.
Diamond huffed and wanted to kick Rube, but she’d wait until he woke before he did that after she got Rob’s address from him.’
Police sirens could be heard in the distance. Most likely the neighbors had decided to call.
Going back inside, Diamond made sure her gun was securely in her purse and then found her shoes.
There wasn’t much time left for her in this house, but she felt Rob could certainly make this whole trip beneficial in more ways than one.
