A Scene From Weekend Rendezvous sequel to Weekend Fling!
“Hey man, I’m not judging. You know I think Lisa is an amazing woman. Any man would be happy to have her. Just wondering why you’re hiding that the two of you are an item. What am I missing?” he asked casually, but Jack knew there was more to it. Austin had known him for too long and he knew what was going through his head.
Jack had never dated a black woman. Ever. There had been plenty of women in various shades, but never a black woman. Not that he hadn’t had the chance, but it had just never worked out that way. Deciding to just admit what Austin already knew, he took a deep breath.
“You’re not missing anything. We decided to keep things light and fun. Neither one of us want anything serious. I have my team and the job. She has her life and her job. We just don’t want to interfere with that. Plus, with you and Kara involved, we don’t want things to get messy.”
Which was partially true. With best friends who would want all the gritty details of your relationship, it could be a headache. More for Lisa than for him. Men didn’t want to know all the details. All his boys cared about was if the woman had moved out of booty call status to ‘old lady’ so that they knew how to treat her.
“So, why are you ashamed to let everyone know she’s taken?” Austin challenged with a hint of steel in his eyes.
“Are you fucking kidding me?” he responded with gritted teeth. “I’m not ashamed of her. Quit trying to get a reaction out of me, man. It’s not happening tonight. It feels too good to be at home and I’m having fun tonight.”
Shrugging his shoulders, Austin took the next shot and missed. Stepping back, he grabbed his beer and took a sip.
“It just seems to me that you’re happy with her being in the background, being there when you need her, being available to you when you want and when you deem her worthy,” he drawled in that fucking big-brother voice that Jack knew too well. “Yet, from what I see, you won’t bring her around the guys as your woman. You won’t touch her when you guys are in public. Why is that? Seriously man, I need to know.”
Now Jack was getting pissed. What the fuck was Austin trying to say? “Dude, what the fuck? I’m not ashamed of Lisa.”
“Then why the fuck are you hiding her? Why won’t you tell every motherfucker in here that she’s your woman?” he continued to press.
Throwing the pool cue on the table, it crashed down with a loud bang. Getting the attention of all the guys in the back room. “I’m not fucking hiding her. We like it just the way it is. We’re not serious. We fuck. That’s it. Nothing more.”
“Then leave her the fuck alone,” Austin said in a low tone.
“Fuck you, Austin. Do not come between me and Lisa. I don’t know what the fuck is going on with you, but you need to get the fuck out of my business.” Jack was livid. Who the hell did Austin think he was questioning him like this?
“Man, you just don’t even fucking see it, do you. You’re fucking the best friend of my wife. The godmother of my son. Yet, you hide your relationship with her like it’s something you’re ashamed of.” Voice raising even higher, Austin continued, “Doesn’t fucking matter if you both agreed to it. A real man doesn’t do that,” he said, throwing his pool stick on the table with a loud clang.
“Man, you’re pushing it. Stop. Now,” Jack growled at his best friend.
“No. Fuck that. A man doesn’t have sex with a woman he respects and cares for while keeping her hidden away like a dark, dirty secret. Unless that’s how he really feels about her. The only reason I can think that you would consider Lisa a dark and dirty secret is because that’s how you see her. Are you afraid to tell your friends you’re fucking a black woman Jack? Because if you are, then our friendship is done and you can go fuck yourself and the bigoted fucking horse you rode in on.”
Jack’s fist flying into Austin’s face was the next thing the guys saw. The two of them started wailing on each other in anger and righteous indignation. Jack saw red. The haze of anger and frustration wouldn’t lift and Austin was the one he was taking it out on.
Austin’s fists flew just as fast and hit their mark just as much. Both men were angry at the other. Sure, they would surely get over this eventually. But right now, neither of them was giving an inch.
The other guys in the room finally managed to pull them apart. Both of them were snarling in anger at the other. Jack had a black eye and a busted lip. Austin’s nose looked as if it had been broken, again, and his lip was bleeding.
“Hey guys, what the fuck just happened,” one of their buddies asked.
“Ask him,” Jack spit out.
“Fuck you. Either you step up and be the man she needs or you step the fucking side and let her find someone else. You ashamed to be with a black woman? Then quit fucking her and keeping her in the dark,” Austin countered. “My fucking wife has to look at this situation and wonder what the fuck kind of man do I call my best friend. You’re the godfather of our son. Yet, you treat her best friend like she’s a fucking whore.”
Jack finally heard the words Austin was saying and he stopped fighting to be released. Looking at his friend, his best friend for the past fifteen years, he just stopped moving. “Is that how you think I feel about Lisa?”
“It’s how you treat her,” Austin said in return, pulling away from the guys holding him. Touching his bloodied lip, he looked at Jack and shook his head. “I don’t care what your problems were in the past. I don’t give a fuck about what Sarah did to you all those years ago. Either put up or shut up, but I won’t have my wife seeing you treat her best friend like this.”
“Austin. Man you gotta hear me when I say this, Lisa and I are grown. She doesn’t need you to protect her and I sure as hell don’t need you to try and control me. She knows what this is. We both know what this is and agreed to it. I’m not hiding her and I’m sure as shit not ashamed of her. That you would think I’d do that…man, what the fuck?” he asked in a frustrated voice.
“You lied to me for two fucking years! You came to my home, you sat with me and my wife and you fucking lied to us. We figured the shit out about six months ago and I just waited for you to tell me. But, no. You and Lisa both kept coming to our home, spending time with us. Both of you lying and hiding shit,” he bit out after spitting out a clump of blood. “Kara was most hurt by it. She thought she’d done something to prevent Lisa from telling her what was going on. You know what? Fuck this. I’m going home to be with my wife and son. When you grow some balls, let me know.”
