Second Excerpt from Derailed:
“What is it exactly that you want with me?”“You know what I want.”
“I want you to move out of these married folks house and move in with me for starters. Give these two the privacy they deserve. Especially after what happened today. They are going to need it. You said you are too afraid to be alone right now. Well I’m right here. Let me make you feel safe.”
“Jay there isn’t anything about you and me that makes sense.”
“That doesn’t mean it wouldn’t be right. And I bet it would feel right too.”
“Which head are you using to talk right now?”
“Both,” he said smiling.
“You love yourself don’t you?”
“Let me love you.”
“You don’t know the first thing about love. Wait, why am I even having this conversation with you right now. I am smarter than this.”
“That might be your problem.”
“What might be my problem?”
“You think too much. That’s why you don’t have a man. Take a chance for once. I swear you won’t regret it.”
“I think I will.”
“There you go again thinking,” Jay said moving closer to her.
“Stay over there Jay.”
“I mean it. Don’t come any further.”
“You know you want me to come closer.”
“Why are you so sure of yourself?”
“I don’t second guess my first mind and my first mind tells me that you and I could be the real thing,” he said now standing in her personal space, “I still don’t see your boyfriend that I told you not to get close to. I’m the only one standing here.”
“A lot of people are going to get hurt if we do this.”
“The only feelings I care about from this moment on is yours, mine and my sons,” he said as he took her face by the hands and kissed her lips, “Now tell me you didn’t feel that.”
“I felt something,” she hinted.
