I walked into the dingy, dimly lit club. The last time I’d been here it had been illuminated entirely by strobe lights, filled with loud, pounding music, and flooded with sweaty bodies rubbing against one another. Now, on a Tuesday late afternoon it was sad and weird. The place was definitely not somewhere you’d go to admire the décor, and the five paying customers were being serenaded with really bad techno played as soft background noise. I scanned the room for Naimah and it wasn’t hard to find her; she was sitting alone on a small, worn loveseat placed in the far corner of the room.
Oh look, they proudly support exhibitionism and date rape. The couches really make it convenient, I thought to myself as I stepped down onto the hardwood dance floor.
As I slowly and cautiously approached her, Naimah’s head rose and a deep, dark smile spread out over her face as she purred, “Aww, lookie what the cat dragged in.”
I stood about five feet from her and kept my back positioned so I could see the whole room. Knowing her, she was bound to have brought some sort of backup – someone who wouldn’t hesitate to jump me and let her have her way with me. “I’m here, okay,” I finally said. “Let’s not play any games. Just tell me what I want to know and I’ll be on my way.”
She let out a loud, soulful laugh, letting her head roll back and her curly hair fall away to show her slender neck. My eyes fell on the soft curves and rippling muscles and then followed her dark skin down to her exposed cleavage before I realized she was trying to distract me on purpose. I pulled my eyes away and glared at her. She produced a small pout and said, “Oh Jason, do ya not like what ya see? I forgot it was so much harder to seduce a mark, ‘specially one as devoted as you. I’m a little rusty darlin’ but I can give it another shot if ya want?”
I cut her off, “I’m serious. No games. Now start talking or I’m leaving and going straight to Malcolm.”
Her expression hardened and she let out another laugh, this one much darker and very serious, “Right… like you two are talkin’ again? I doubt that hun, after that quick run away you did last time I saw you. And if ya knew what I know about him, ya sure as hell wouldn’t go crawlin’ to him for help. I’m guessin’ ya’ll haven’t talked since that night… am I right?”
I swallowed hard and looked away from her. After a few seconds she let out a puff of air. “You’re no fun Jason. Ya need to lighten up a little. Come over here and sit by me. I’ll help loosen ya up and I’ll tell ya everythin’ ya wanna know. I promise.”
Those last words came out in a low, bewitching hiss. Against my better judgment, I began walking towards her. I knew if I didn’t cooperate, at least a little, she wasn’t going to give me any information. She was the only person who could tell me what the hell was going on. Lillian was keeping things from me, my mother was in utter denial, and there was no way I was going to Malcolm. She was my only chance to get some answers.
I sat on the opposite end of the sofa, as far from her as I could get, but it wasn’t much use. As soon as I sat down, she swiftly kicked her legs out from under her and rolled herself up against my right side. She was hardly dressed conservatively and all of her exposed skin radiated a heat that made a sheet of sweat spread across my forehead – at least that was the excuse I told myself. I clenched my jaw and tensed my entire body, anticipating her unwelcome touch and knowing how I would involuntarily react to it. But much to my surprise, after a few moments passed by, she let out a soft chuckle and leaned back into her place without once making contact with my skin. I relaxed, but only slightly.
“Ya do know this is a give and take, right Jason?” she purred.
I swallowed hard, completely understanding the terms we agreed on over the phone. I managed to say with some strength, though I was anything but strong on the inside, “Let’s just get this over with. You give me the information and I give you your… refill.”
She put on a fake pout, “Poor baby… is that all ya think ya are? Just a receptacle to fill and drain… over and over? Is your lovely lady not takin’ care of ya like ya deserve, sweet thang?”Her words cut to my soul and I felt myself take in a sharp gasp of air. She’d hit the nail right on the head and I didn’t know how to keep myself from giving that away.
