Miss Opportunity - Ch. 19.1

Though Cami didn’t get enough sleep last night, she was as energetic as ever at the club. She constantly watched the front entrance, looking for any sign of Millsap. She wanted him to see her in the blue and white, Dallas Cowboy cheerleader costume she had on tonight.

Although it was still summertime and football season hadn’t officially started yet, that didn’t stop the waitresses at The Urban Revue from wearing the cheerleader uniforms of their favorite teams. Saturday ‘Theme Night’ at the club was suggested by Cami a few weeks ago. She thought it might be a fun way to pull in more customers, particularly male customers who were usually the biggest tippers.

Cami’s idea worked like a charm. There were actually more men in the club tonight than women and that hardly ever happened.

“This was another great idea, Cami,” Tonja said as they stood side by side at the bar. “I’m going to recommend you for a raise behind this one,” she continued as Stefan, the bartender, stacked bottles of the most expensive liquor in the club on a large brown tray.

“Thanks.” Cami smiled. “Need any help with that order?”

“Actually, yes,” Tonja replied. “Our bosses came in through the back way tonight. They have quite a few people in the skybox with them, so with your help I’ll only have to make one trip up.”

Millsap is here? Why did he sneak in the back way? And who are these ‘people’ they brought along? Cami mused, keeping her thoughts to herself.

She soon found out the answers to her three questions.

One, yes, Millsap was there.

Two, he snuck in the back way because he was trying to avoid her again.

Three, all of the generals had females with them tonight. One of those females was Daysha Dixon.

Cami quickly deduced that although Daysha might not be Millsap’s main squeeze since he was so against having one, the woman was definitely his favorite. Why else would she accompany him to the club so often?

With hot jealousy singeing her insides, Cami immediately sized up the competition. Cinnamon-skinned Daysha had long straight black hair, light brown eyes, and a cute face like Tatyana Ali. Yet for her baby face, the nurse had a killer body that said, ‘I am all woman’, complete with onion.

Yet the fact that Daysha was so attractive is not what upset Cami the most right now. She was most angry about being replaced so quickly.

First of all, how could the brother not be sated after all the sex they’d had over the last twenty-four hours? Cami was good to go in the sex department for at least the next two weeks.

Secondly, what happened to that strong connection she thought she’d had with Millsap? What about that tear he’d shed?

Maybe I was feeling him more than he was feeling me, Cami thought, recalling how Millsap warned her that she might get sprung over him.

Well, sprung she was. Cami was totally and completely addicted to Millsap’s unique brand of lovemaking. By far, he’d been the best lover she’d ever had.

And now it’s over, Cami mused, forcing herself to accept reality.

Then careful to keep the pain of rejection out of her eyes, Cami proceeded to do her job. However, she did it differently tonight. Instead of starting with Millsap, she ended with him, serving him last.

“Can I get anyone anything else before I go?” Cami asked, changing her usual inquiry to include everyone now.

“No thanks. We have everything we need right here,” Millsap replied, speaking for everyone.

If Cami hadn’t gotten his message before, she certainly had it now. That message: That one night between them would remain just that – one night.

Nodding, Cami left the room quietly behind Tonja. With her back turned, she failed to see Millsap cut his eyes at her swaying bottom in that tight cheerleading uniform, lick his lips, and then stretch out the fingers of his right hand before balling them into a fist on the table. He blew a slow breath out through pursed lips when the door finally closed behind Cami.

Observant Mike-Mike saw everything. He’d also seen the subtle differences between Millsap and Cami tonight. Combine that with the woman’s handprint he’d seen on the skybox window last week when he and Tonja had utilized the skybox for a lover’s tryst, and Mike-Mike was starting to think that maybe his partner had gone back on his own rule.

I’ll find out on poker night, Mike-Mike thought, before returning his attention to his date for the evening.

Unfortunately, Daysha noticed Millsap’s subtle interest in Cami, too. Though she said nothing, she filed that information away for safekeeping in case this new waitress turned out to be any real competition.

Here’s how Daysha looks:

Who did Mike-Mike have with him... I know it wasn't Tonja. Was she okay with it?

God Bless

Suprina said...

Joy: It wasn't Tonja. You'll see if she's okay with it in the next post. I'm still writing it now so it might be a while depending on how long it is.

Thanks for all the comments, Joy. You and all the regulars are keeping a sista motivated. Thanks again.

To all: I'm going to bed early tonight. I ran into a snag with the next post and need to sleep on it and approach it with a clearer head before I go further.

But here's a huge spoiler about it. Cami is not going to take what Millsap did lying down. She got something up her sleeve. Most of it had me laughing (don't know if it's because I'm just tired or what. lol), but I'm struggling a bit with how to end that chapter. Thus the need for rest.

Talk to y'all tomorrow/later today.
