Malik made several
calls to Portia’s house during
the daytime hours. He heard about Portia’s
Dominique, but she remained hesitant and tight lipped.
“Look Malik, I swear I love you to death but

to put his

and walked through the terminal at Miami International
Airport with a confident stride. The sights and
around him were the same for Portia and Justin as
headed to their hotel destination.
Justin placed his hand on Portia’s knee and

Portia asked, “I thought you booked

you’re ready, I’ll
carry you back to bed and tuck you in.”

The hotel phone rang in the distance. Justin walked

“Hey baby, I’m so glad you called.”
He winked at
Portia and sat down. Portia giggled as she straddled
to listen to pathetic Selena. As water dripped from
of her hair, Justin covered the mouth piece and
conversation with Portia.
“How was your flight honey?” Selena
“Smooth, what have you been up to?”
Selena sighed and said, “I feel so silly saying
