Sheila lay in bed and wondered how she had gotten at that point. How she had fallen in love again and with the wrong person. “You have that guilty look in your eyes again. Let me guess you are about to give them this is wrong speech,” someone’s voice interrupted her thoughts.

Mr. Grey had just stepped out of the shower and was trying to find his clothes in the pile of clothes that was on the floor. Sheila took a look at his well-maintained body. He was really in pretty good shape for a guy who was in his fifties then smiled, “No I’m okay. Just thinking of a project I had.”

“All that thinking will make you stressed and you’ll lose weight. I wouldn’t like that for my queen,” Grey started. She sat up and looked at him.

“I’m sorry for your queen,” she joked.

Grey held her in his hands, smiled and looked into her eyes. “I, Edward Grey, am truly in love with you. I have been thinking…I want to let everyone know about us…. But I need to know that you are also serious about me regardless of what people will think especially Shirley...”

The name Shirley scared her enough to lay back down and stare at the chandelier. Grey lay next to and pressed his lips against hers. His perfume was so strong and beautiful at the same time. “I love you babe. Think about it and let me know,” he jumped off the bed and walked out of the room.

He loves me. He truly loves me. That was unexpected!” she thought to herself. The fact that Grey had made the offer really meant that there was more to his plan other than introduction. She had known him ever since she was born and that was enough for her to predict his actions. She got out the bed and took a look at her phone. The name Shirley popped up in different messages. They were to meet that morning and she needed to get ready before Shirley used the find my friend app to know where she was.

Sheila headed to the pack where the duo had made a tradition of meeting every Thursday morning, “Sheila! Sheila!” she had the one familiar voice that had now started to make her anxious and scared at the same time, she turned around and wondered how it would be like if she looked up and told her “Hey, guess what. I’m dating your father!” How much easier will life be after that, but instead she smiled, turned, waved back and said “Shirley, I love that outfit. You look so cute today.”

A long walk to the mall was all they needed to get all their secrets out and after a long day of pampering Shirley finally asked the question she’d been waiting for.

“Hey so who is he?” she asked holding her arm. Sheila got scared and looked at her pretending to be ignorant.

“Who is who exactly?” Shirley stopped and stared back at her.

“Come on. We both know there is a man in the picture. All those late nights. Your phone goes off at specified times each night. Let the cat out of the bag and fly free who is it?” Shirley insisted.

Sheila sighed and tried to think of a lie that would salvage the situation she was in. At least a white lie would do.

“Okay… fine… I’m seeing someone,” she took in deep breaths and continued, “…but it is not right, because it’s a taboo and I might lose people by the end of it all…”

Shirley looked aside and nodded in understanding. “Let me ask this…does he love you?” Sheila nodded as she remembered the conversation that they had earlier that morning. Shirley looked at her the beginning of a smile creeping across her face.

“Do you love him?” She asked again. Sheila looked at her friend and saw her eyes the same eyes a beautiful as Grey’s. That was one of the things that she liked about him. The image of his eyes sent her down memory lane and that was what she needed to admit to herself that she did love him.

“You do love him. I can tell from the way your expression just changed. Look if you truly love him then that’s enough to fight for him. Regardless of how forbidden it might be,” Shirley said while walking away.

She really was right even though it was her father who was the person of interest. Sheila picked up her phone and texted him. She wasn’t going to let him go just because it meant losing people. She did love him and she did agree that they should tell everyone around them.

Mr. Grey was in the middle of a boring presentation by one of his staff members when he got the text. He had to admit that part of him was actually scared that she would decline his proposal. After reading it he jumped from his seat and ran out in excitement. By the time he was out of breath he had already reached the jewelry store next door.

“I want the biggest rock you have. I’m going to ask the woman of my dreams to marry me,” he announced. He looked strange standing there and grinning to himself. But Grey couldn’t help himself. He was in love. To a certain point he found himself chuckling with the security guard while showing him a picture of Sheila.

Sheila gazed out her car’s window. Her stomach was in knots and the fact that she was seriously anxious wasn’t helping. As soon as she got into the mansion, she was glad to see Grey wait for her at the entrance with a huge smile. This was to be interpreted in the most loving way possible but all Sheila could get from it was how creepy it seemed.

“Hey,” she said running into his arms. Grey hugged back then pushed her away gently.

“I have been waiting for this moment the whole day. Before we go inside...” he said going on on his knees and pulling out a nine-carat diamond ring, “Sheila Choni Smith, will you please marry me?”

Sheila felt like she was having a panic attack but tried to keep it calm with a smile and a gentle nod.

“Yes, nothing would make me happier,” she said. The ring was beautiful but seriously heavy but this didn’t spook Grey who was excited to the point of fainting. He stood up took her in his arms and squeezed her tightly, then pushed her away gently for the second time.

“By the way, I already told them. The weird part is that they already knew and were waiting for us to come clean…so let me give them the signal so that they can come celebrate with us,” He said.

Grey waved his arm and a multitude of people run into the compound shouting and yelling. Sheila looked at the front of the line and couldn’t see Shirley among the crowd. Tears rolled down her cheeks because to her Shirley’s absence meant no best friend.

“Looking for me?” the voice, the beautiful angelic voice behind her was a blessing in the skies for Sheila. “You didn’t think that I would miss this now, did you?” Shirley said hugging her best friend. A friendship restored gave Sheila the confidence to be happy with the man she loved.

When they finally got the chance to be alone, Grey drove her to his house. All he had wanted to do all day since he’d left her was to make love to her. He took her hand and led her to his room. Once there, she stood on her toes and kissed him. Things went pretty fat after that and the next thing they knew; they were both naked and laying on the bed with Grey on top of her. When he moved into her, her back arched off the mattress and her eyes rolled to the back of her head. He was gentle with her and attentive to all her need. It didn’t take him long to make her come. They came at the same time filling their room with moans.

They fell asleep thereafter with hope for what the next day held for them.
