#30LAYERS30DAYS: Mixed Signals

She couldn’t believe that he called, so she called her girlfriend to vent. Her friend answered the phone so quick it seemed like the phone didn’t ring.

“Hey girl!” She said.

“Hey, what’s up?”

“No you tell me what’s up? You went for some air, and next I know you was texting me an address. Sooooo, who did you hook up with? Don’t leave out any details.”

“Well, remember the dude I bumped into.”

“Get outta here!” Her friend sounded like a high-school girl giddy over eye-candy. “I thought he left the party early?”

“Yes, but when I went outside he was standing there.”

“Damn girl, like something in the movies.”

“I don’t know about that, but he was just standing at the curb. I saw him first, but I wasn’t going to go over to him. I bent down to pick up my lighter and he was standing there with his lighter burning. He lit my cigarette.”

“Sounds like some movie ish to me.”

“Anyway, we got to talking. And before you knew it I was texting you his address.”

“You’re crazy, Trish”- she smiled- “but I love it. So was he good? Don’t leave out any details”

“He was a jerk.”

“What, did he try to hurt you?”

“No, nothing like that. Actually the night was perfect. We both was into each other. I am not sure what made him go left, but the next morning he looked shocked to see me.”

“Like you slipped him a mickey.”

“I know right?”

“I knew we both was nice, but not to know who you was gyrating on all night, that’s a bit much. Anyway he said some weird mess to me, like you’re not the perfect canvas.”

“What? What the heck that’s supposed to mean?”

“Yeah that’s what I said. I read that fool wrong. I cursed him out. And left.”

“What time you got outta there?”

“Girl, I don’t know. But that wasn’t the crazy part.”


“That fool called my number!”

“To say what?”

“To be honest, once I heard the voice I just burst into laughter, and hung up on his dumb behind. I have no time for mixed signals.”
