“ME AND MY BOO IN MY BOO COUPE RIDING'"
Life could not be any sweeter than it is right now Jasper and I are on our way to dinner. He surprised me with a bouquet of roses and a card that said “Will you have dinner with me tonight?” he is so romantic when he wants to be. He’s trying to help me with adjusting to our new life. It has been easier for him than for me by far. Having to share the one love with millions is not an easy thing to do. Everywhere we go there are fans that recognize him and want a piece of him; his attention, autographs, pictures or small talk, they love Jasper Knox the football player but I love Jasper Knox the man. The Jasper Knox that doesn’t run any touchdowns or flashes his million dollar smile on the Subway commercials, the Jasper that knows when I’m feeling a certain kind of way and he sees it as important to be sure that I am okay. Yes, my baby Jasper that after I confronted him about signing those bitch’s breasts, he sat me down calmly and said.
“I was taken off guard because nothing like that has ever happened to me before. I just signed them partly because I didn’t know what else to do and the other part was because they’re fans and I never want to offend them. But know this, you are the very most important person in this world to me and I will never do anything to make you feel unloved or insecure” that’s he gave in the most loving and sincere tone I’d ever heard come from him.
It was all good, so what those b****** got some ink scribbled across their breasts, the man is mine and I am his. Nothing and no one was changing that because we want each other and we want the love that we have. There were no tricks or schemes, no babies or pop up pregnancies…nothing . It was just us. I relaxed back into the plush black leather of his Bentley coupe. Jasper had Monica on Pandora and the moon roof open so that the stars could glide above us. He was so handsome in his gray jeans and black button down. His cut was sharp and fresh making his skin look like hot creamy cocoa. He reached down, grabbed my hand and brought it to his mouth giving it as kiss. He looked over and smiled at me.
“You look really beautiful” he complimented.
“And you look really handsome” I returned.
We were on 95 headed South and passed a billboard that featured Jasper and some of his teammates looking menacing on it. The advertisement for the new 2012 Football Season had the caption that read ‘Feed the Sharks Please!” with a huge shark bite on the bottom of the sign. It was huge, he was huge, bigger than life now and I’m the one he chose to go along on this ride with him.
We pulled into the restaurant and valet, my door was opened and I was lifted out by the attendant. There were people standing on the curb waiting for their cars to be brought to them and as soon as Jasper rose from his side the looks then the whispering started. Jasper walked around and grabbed my hand, he smiled at the few standing on the curb and we walked in. A hostess approached immediately and Jasper gave his name.
“Your table is ready sir” a blond similar looking to the “Sign My Titis” twins said, turned on her heels and escorted us to a private table. It was in the back behind heavy drapes that grazed the floor and gave the look of exclusivity. The hostess pulled long tasseled cords to open them and reveal the single table behind them. The table was round with two smooth beige candles resting in silver holders. The plates were white and polished to gleaming perfection as was the silverware. It was really beautiful.
Jasper pulled out my chair as the hostess lit the candles creating an even more romantic ambiance in the small space. Jasper took his seat across from me, he was beautiful and so was the way I was feeling.
“I know that this is a bit grand but I wanted to take you to dinner and not be disturbed by anyone. Tonight I don’t want to be Jasper Knox the Heisman winning football star. I just want to be Jasper, your man”.
I didn’t know what to say, he had already made me the happiest girl in the world by simply loving me. If it were possible for me to love him anymore than I already had…I did right then. The waiter came and offered us a bottle of wine. Jasper accepted and ordered us lobster tails in creamed butter sauce, steaks and garlic asparagus. Our meals were presented under silver lids that once removed steam bellowed into the air. It looked too good to eat and we took our time savoring every moment and every bite. Our conversation was about our friends and family no football and no stats. Jasper not once even allowed the word “ball” to come out of his mouth. We laughed and reminisced on our days in high school and college and some funny moments in our relationship. It was an amazing evening and I was so grateful that he gave it to me in this way. Once we were done with dinner Jasper had already ordered my favorite desert apple crisp and vanilla iced cream.
“You know that they don’t offer this here. I had the chef make it especially for you”.
“Really? Why?” I asked beaming.
“Just so that I can see that right there” he pointed to my smile.
“Thank you baby” I smiled feeling tears welling in the corners. I felt so loved.
I enjoyed my desert and feeding Jasper as few spoonfuls too. Once I was done he paid the check and we walked out. Our car was already waiting and we slid in and pulled off.
“Thank you for dinner and the entire evening. It was truly beautiful”
“My pleasure baby” he said as we slid along the open road with the stars gliding above us.
“I’ll be back in an hour or so” Brian announced and that was four hours ago. I’d long since abandoned asking him of his business…if he wanted me to know I’d know. My husband had many business ventures, partners and endorsements. Someone always had a product that they wanted him to endorse or a deal they wanted him to get in on. Who knew which one took him out of the house tonight to attend to. I smiled and kissed him as he walked out the door. He looked so handsome and smelled so good. I knew that my husband loved me. I also knew that he wasn’t leaving the house tonight on business. Brian never wore Clive Christian cologne to do business. I waited until he pulled out the driveway and I grabbed my handbag and keys.
