•{ Respite . . .

“We experience moments absolutely free from worry.
These brief respites are called panic.”
 Cullen Hightower quotes

So many things to do and there’s not enough time in the day to do them all.  This week has gone by a lot faster than I thought and you know what, that’s okay. Maybe it’s gone by in whirlwind because it’s rushing forward to something better. Or, maybe it’s rushing forward to help me to quickly move past things that I don’t need to think about. Either way, I’m not complaining.

I have more than a few things coming up and things are about to get a little busy for me over the next week. Don’t worry. You’ll still hear from me here and there as I can’t abandon what I love to do, it only has to take a side-seat as I deal with other things.

The thoughts are popping and the wheels are turning. Wonderful things are happening and marvelous things are all around.  Sometimes time speeds up to help us to get it faster.

Enjoy the weekend everyone.

•{ Got a real good feelin’ . . .

“…Drinks keep coming, throw my head back laughing
Wake up in the morning’ don’t know what happened
Whoah, something bad…”

Last night was a blur. I could hardly remember anything. Someone was yelling at me to wake up. The main thing I remembered was the seemingly endless supply of shots and the name of the woman currently in my hotel room. Penelope Firewater.

“Got less than thirty minutes before the cops find us,” she said as she peeked out the window blind. She picked up a duffle bag stuffed with cash and opened the door. “Let’s go.”

“If the cops catch up, they’re gonna call it kidnapping
Got a real good feelin’ something bad about to happen…”

It took a moment for everything to register but, when I looked at the side of the bed I laid on and saw a similar bag of cash everything clicked. We had both been players in poker game at a hole in the wall club. The drinks were flowing and both of us were vying for the head spot. Everything was going well until someone recognized who I was. Guns came out; money and fist started flying. Don’t know why, but she helped me get out of there. Now we were on the run.

Firewater set us up with a pair of sport bikes from a back alley dealer a few blocks away. We were safe for the moment. She tossed me the keys as I straddled my bike.

“Thanks,” I said, “I got it from here.”

Firewater was already revving up her engine. “Oh no, girlfriend, you owe me. So where we going?”

I could have driven off and left her to chase after me, but on second thought I had a good feeling about this. I secured my own bag and started the bike. I scoffed and smiled at her. “New Orleans.” Now all we had to do was get there.

“Now me and that girl that I met on the street
We’re rollin’ down the road, down to New Orleans
Got a full tank of gas and the money out of the mattress
Got a real good feelin’ something bad about to happen”

Triple-N therapy. . .

The holiday festivity prepping is over – at least they are for me. I’m going to sit back, grab a jar, chill, and let everything else be.

No more running around and battling the crowds. No more hiding gifts in hard to reach places, or tempting the paper cut gods as I do a wrapping rush job. Nope. I’m done. Let someone else do that today.  It’s time I settled down and took care of myself with a little Triple-N therapy:  Netflix, Nutella, and naps.

My partner may think that I’m a little bit bizzar, acting like the party’s over when the main event hasn’t happened yet. But, if he’ll give me just a moment I’m sure I can convince him that I’m right.  A little time with the Triple-N’s will make everything alright.

Fox & Curtis || Bang, bang . . .

Ms. Fox waited patiently in the lounge of the mansion which belonged to her uncle, Eleuterio Minguez.  A few months had passed since Mr. Curtis had gotten shot while helping her steal back the financial documents, and deeds which were taken from her.  The two of them had been hiding ever since. Keeping a low profile and quietly establishing new aliases. The cartel was still after them, and they wouldn’t be able to stop running until her uncle’s empire was destroyed. Tonight, they planned to strike her uncle where it hurt, and take care of his wife.

In her mind, Mr. Curtis was born to blend in and work a crowd. He had left her to find the whereabouts of the target, while she scoped out the room.  It did not take long, and soon she felt his hand on her shoulder and around her waist.  No one else had a touch like that.

Ms. Fox lifted up her left hand to reached for the hand on her shoulder, prominently displaying the large rock affixed to her wedding finger. Their identities for the night, Mr. and Mrs. Jones, were new ‘power couple’ that had come into a large sum. This diamond was proof to the point.

Mr. Curtis nodded at the passing guest and greeted her. Speaking over her shoulder, “Mrs. Jones.  How are you enjoying yourself this evening so far my love?”

For her part, Ms. Fox chuckled politely and tipped her head back. “This party is the highlight of the year.”

Mr. Curtis spoke lower, trying not to move his lips in a ventriloquist fashion, “Keep talking. Act natural. Play it cool.  I found her.” He beamed and brought her hand up to his lips, kissing her knuckles tenderly, keeping the charade of husband and wife up.  Ms. Fox smiled beautifully, giving a small nod to show she understood what he said.

After a few couples made small talk with ‘Mr. & Mrs. Jones,’ the two of them made their way further into the festivities where various activities were set up: such as a dance floor,  photo booth, and the main buffet.  Mr. Curtis escorted Ms. Fox through the crowd to the first landing of the circular stairwell. Their target was upstairs. All they had to do now was get up there without being noticed.

Suddenly a commotion came from the upper landing.  Coming down the stairs, escorted by three police officers and her husband, was Mrs. Minguez, with her hands behind her back.

Shouting and fast arguing in Spanish accompanied the group.  All the guest had stopped their partying in favor of watching the scene unfold. Even Ms. Fox was transfixed and didn’t register that, while the wife may not recognize her, the uncle surely would.

Mr. Curtis moved the two of them to the other side of the stairwell, into a room, and pinned Ms. Fox against the wall like they were there for the privacy. They were still in site of the happenings and Ms. Fox turned her head to look out the doorway.  Her eyes blazed in anger as her gaze fell on her uncle, Eleuterio Minguez.  “Shhh baby,” Mr. Curtis said to her, “We’ll get our chance.”

This was wrong.  All wrong and Ms. Fox didn’t understand what was happening.  If she and her partner were not responsible for this, then who was?

As his wife was escorted out of the mansion, Eleuterio began to yell at his guests and swing his arms in a wide circle.  “Vete de aqui!”  And the guest started to file out in a rush.  No one wanted to be a victim of his anger.

They left their temporary hideout and Mr. Curtis moved them along in the crowd, but then made more of a sideways route than straight for the door. By the time he had tucked them into the photobooth unseen, Eleuterio was slamming the front door shut and barking at one of his six guards in the room still.

They were now trapped inside the mansion with the uncle who wanted her dead. The plan of action was clear. Mr. Curtis moved his hands from Ms. Fox’s body now, reaching inside his blazer to draw his colt out of his holster.  Suddenly, he groaned when Ms. Fox bent down, pushing her ass into him to pull hers from its own strapping under her skirt.  “For fuck’s sake Noa…. ”

Despite the situation, she couldn’t help it. The sense of danger heightened her desire.  “Just making sure you were loaded, Mason,” she quipped, turning her head to look at him over her shoulder a moment.

Mason whispered, “You always get like this when you hold that thing.”

Giggling softly, trying to not be heard, “Do I?  I didn’t notice.” was Ms. Fox’s reply.

Mr. Curtis squeezed her ass hard in his other hand, keeping an eye on the end of her gun, then froze once he heard her uncle and his guards getting closer.  Leaning into the back of her,  his lips against brushed against her ear as he spoke low.  “Ready?”

Holiday Ramblings . . .

The holidays are here.  In the United States we just finished with Thanksgiving and now it’s full speed on to the next big thing: Christmas.

In all this time of running about, gatherings and a myriad of social events, do you ever stop and wonder what it’s all for?  What does it all mean?  What is it that you are thankful for this holiday season? Or are you simply acting thankful because that’s what you’re suppose to be doing.

With Christmas fast approaching, many use material possessions to express emotions. The price tag, being reflective of their feelings towards the other person, causes people to break open their piggy banks and spend money that they don’t have. All this in an effort to prove how much they care.

But, if you ask me, the best gift has no price tag.  It can’t be brought in a store, exchanged, or lost. The greatest gift is love.  It’s time.  If you’re wondering what you can give people this holiday season, why not give them a little love.

With you I find my peace . . .

Through the turmoil
With you I find my peace. .  .

Many people try to put a value on love. What’s in it for me? The money? The gifts? The notoriety which may be a part of the relationship… Those things may be nice, but if you take those away, is the love still there?

If the person you loved lost everything that they had, would you still be there?

For me, love is found in the peace the other person brings to your heart and the smile they bring to your lips – even in the bad times.
