Hey. Austin couldn’t tell who’s voice it was, hello who is this? I just wanna say that I love you and I’ve always wanted to whisper those words in your ear as you slept in my arms. I know that will probably never happen now, but I will tell you everything. Who is this? Austin could not identify the voice for the life of her. I’m going to hang up! No please don’t, I’m not a stranger but my love is what you absolutely deserve but I know you’ll never know. You are a work of art in motion, you are love breathing and I adore your air! Austin could not help but to blush, no one has ever talked to her like that. Aussie are you there? Yes I am I just don’t really know what to say to a person that I can’t readily identify. I understand, can you meet me somewhere. Hell no! I don’t know you you’re not about to serial kill me and she immediately hung up.
She sat on the floor and simply listened. She heard the floor creeping, the central air humming, the sound of Toni’s tv playing across the hall, the stairs settling. Austin took it all in, listening to the soft noises of the place she has called home for the last year or so. The girls had not decided if they would sign another lease seeing that graduation is around the corner and they all had no particular plans. There were talks about staying another year to just kinda live before running head first into the careers.
Please God explain to me how one night tears a family completely to shreds. These girls have had my back when my own family deserted me. We have fought together, danced together, studied together… Everything! These ladies have been my everything for the last few years. They’re all that I have and I’m not going to allow a man to come between that bond. Her thoughts were disturbed once again my the buzzing of her phone. What, her frustrations rattled through the phone lines. He’s still messing with his baby’s momma too! Click! Her heart jumped up into her throat and the tears began to fall over her cheeks.
She pulled herself off the floor, still completely dressed, shoes and all and exited her room. She stood the second floor hallway as if she had never been there before. Totally lost and dazed she knocked on Toni’s door, but there was no answer. After a couple of seconds she walked down the stairs and into the living room where her roomies were being watched by the tv as they quietly conversed. Someone just called my phone and told me that DaVaughn is sleeping wit his baby momma. Both Toni and Carrie slightly startled looked over to their sister mate as she was standing at the edge of the sofa with tears crawling down her face. They both set frozen for a moment then jumped to comfort her. Toni Geneva Landers I am sorry she whimpered, it’s not your fault that I have HORRIBLE taste in men. You are my sister and even your trifling ass little sisters are my sisters, but that man is just a boy! When God made that one he did not break the mold. The sister mates burst into laughter and sat together on the couch to discuss their dramatic evening. Wait Aussie who called you and told you. I don’t know, I can’t tell who it is I don’t recognize the voice.
The girls talked into the morning and decided to go to church instead of going to sleep. They took Austin’s truck but Carrie drove. As they pulled into the parking lot of Word of Love Faith Austin’s cell rang. She fished it out of the bottom her purse. Hmmm, it’s a 216 area code, who calling me from home?
