Confessions of a Femme #31
As soon as I got home from my unofficial date with Danielle I text Tony and let him know what was going on. He was a fan of Danielle but he was not a fan of her having a boyfriend. He felt like there was no reason for her to have a boyfriend if she was into me. Although I agreed with him, I knew she wasn’t going to just up and leave her boyfriend for me. Even though I liked her I knew it probably wouldn’t work out in the long wrong. It still felt good in the moment.
Things with work were going well. I booked a number of interviews with celebrities through my PR firm and made new connections with publicist on the west coast. I was starting to become “known” in the industry and to my surprise, the restaurant was starting to pick up and money was rolling in. Things were really looking up and I was finally starting to smile again. Tara was no longer a part of my life and I was content knowing that it was possible to find someone who I enjoyed spending time with as much as I used to enjoy spending time with her.
After a long day at Alexander’s I came home, opened a bottle of red wine and called Desiree to let her know all the new details of my love life, or lack there of. The phone rang a few times before she answered. “Hello?”" Hey girl, it’s Olivia. What you doing friend” I yelled into the phone. “Girl, shit. I’m over here writing up a new resume. What you up to? What’s going on with you and ole girl from your job?” she replied. I took a minute to collect my thoughts and tell Desiree what had been going on so I could have her evaluate the situation. “We’ve been spending time together.” I said with a cheesy grin on my face. “And by spending time you mean fucking right”? Desiree loved to hear about sex regardless of who was telling the story.
An hour passed and I had successfully put Desiree up to speed on all of the events that were taking place between me and Danielle. Desiree thought I should pursue her in light of the fact that she had a boyfriend. She said the boyfriend was a front and he woldn’t be around forever. Even though I wanted to believe her, I wasn’t willing to put myself in a compromising situation just to see if something would stick temporarily. Taking it day by day was the best thing I could do in this situation.
