Here is revised chapter Deceitful Secrets first chapter of my novel that will be released September 18, 2017.
Taylor walks out the master bathroom only to see Devin still asleep. She calls out his name and he just moans at her. He then looks over at Taylor wrapped in nothing but a white bath towel dripping wet. Devin smiles and blinks his eyes to focus more only her naked silhouette body as Taylor drops the towel smiling and teasing. He motions her to come back to bed as every part of his body is completely awakened. Taylor shakes her head no while giggling like a school girl. Devin gives her “he not taking no” look and removes the comforter off him only to stand up completely naked as his tool of reasoning. His caramelized six packs, gun packing arms and legs defined like a God.
Taylor is memorized by her husband’s gorgeous physic. Oh, let’s not forget his picture perfect smile for days. Taylor backs her way back into their bathroom slowly waiving her hands at Devin to stop coming towards her. He laughs at her and continues walking towards her standing a heavenly 6’4 220 pounds of pure ecstasy. Devin knows his bedroom eyes and smile gets his wife in trouble every time. Taylor’s has locked eye contact with Devin and she finds herself on the wall of their eloquent shower. Devin aligns his body with her allowing her to feel the hardness of his manhood. He whispers in her ear; I just need a sweet treat this morning… “You baby… Let me taste you.
Taylor replies, you’re greedy and you are going to make me late again. Devin replies you are my wife and I can have you when I want you. Taylor starts to moan as Devin has now positioned her in a unique stance where his manhood has entered her and she feels each stroke as her husband takes her on a morning ride of a lifetime. Devin moves toward the shower faucet to turn it on to allow the hot water to hit their bodies as he lifts and strokes her in a hypnotic rotation that has Taylor moaning. He knows when she is about to reach her peak so his strokes become faster and harder.
The best morning treat a man could get from his wife. Devin smiles as they both reach their ultimate climax. Afterwards, Devin watches Taylor’s 5’3 wet body walk out of the shower into their bedroom while he stays to shower. She looks back at Devin and just smiles at him. Now, I can get dressed for work and hopefully I can make it on time. Yelling from the shower, you’re a boss, so why do you worry about stuff like that baby. You know I don’t like being late Devin. I have to set an example. Are you complaining that you got some loving this morning? No, I am not complaining at all. Our sex life is amazing and I love you to pieces for it. Devin pokes his head out the shower at his wife to say, I love you right back.
Taylor walks into their Master Closet to get dress as Devin steps out the shower. He wraps a white towel around his waist and tip toes into the closet behind Taylor who is startled. Devin laughs at her and spanks her on the butt. Walking over to his side of their huge closet, he looks back at Taylor with a smile and says, “you up for round 3” … Rain check baby, we will get it in tonight as she snaps her black bra that matches her panties.
Ok, you know we should play hooky today and both be home sick. Stay home, have lots of sex, eat, snack, sex, sleep, and eat again. You know I love waking you up out your sleep. Devin Jackson we are not skipping work today. We did that our first two years of marriage and I think my boss caught on to my sick days in the middle of the week. Hell, woman we been married for three years, you act like we your parents. We are not like your parents, only having sexual relations on special occasions. Your mama is wrong for that. Devin, stop that foolish nonsense out your mouth. You don’t know how many times my parents had sex. Stop that, it’s disgusting…
You’re talking about my parent’s sex life. Taylor Louise Jackson that is how you got here. Hell, that’s how we both got here… it was not a wish. Your pops had sex for sure with your mom at least three times. What, Devin? Shut up! I know this for a fact. No you don’t yes, I do… They got three kids right. Taylor rolls her eyes at Devin and he laughs then they both find themselves laughing at his crazy sense of humor.
Taylor is finally dressed wearing her wide leg black pants with a silk print blouse that compliments her. Now Taylor looks in the mirror trying to decide if it will be a neutral eyeshadow or color that will pop to accent her honey color eyes. Devin stands their admiring his beautiful wife while she unwraps her hair after applying her make-up. Taylor looks up at him from the mirror to catch him starring at her in amusement. Devin says, you are so beautiful. I would have never imagined a girl like you marrying a guy like me. I am a bad boy from a damn good family, but that didn’t matter to you. You loved me anyway!
Sometimes I tell myself, I don’t even think I am worthy to be your husband. Bae, why are you saying those things? No, reason just no reason. Well, I married a good man with a good heart and head on his shoulders. Well, I am done with my face. Do you have time for breakfast? No, I got to meet Kelly for a breakfast meeting downtown that I might be late getting to.
Well, okay then don’t be late, you know how your father is about promptness. Yes, I know Taylor don’t remind me. I might be a little late for dinner but we can meet for lunch today a 1pm. Is that good time for you? Yes, let’s meet down by Navy Pier and eat at one of those restaurants. Let’s meet at DMK Burger Bar & Fish Bar at 1pm. Ok, honey, text me if you’re running late then I will order drinks for us. Taylor, I promise I will let you know if I am running late… I promise baby. Okay, well I am going to make me some breakfast. Oh, I see you greedy this morning Devin replies while laughing. Taylor turns around and says, I have not eaten yet, Devin! Yes, you have; you had me this morning. He grins from ear to ear. You are crazy, and she walks out the room.
Taylor gets down stairs to the kitchen and turns the Keurig machine on to make her one cup of coffee while she prepares herself a bowl of hot oatmeal with fresh strawberry and bananas cut up in her bowl. As she sits down to eat her mini-breakfast, Devin comes down stairs looking sexy and handsome in his tailored suit. In her mind, she is like; this man can truly hang and wear a suit, especially chocolate… Hell any color looks good on him. Smiling at her husband and reminiscing back to when they first met. Lost in deep thought, Devin sneaks a kiss and Taylor laughs.
You remember how we met? Yes, I do. You came to my game with my brother Kelly. Who would have thought I would have married the Capitan of the Grambling’s State Tigers Basketball team? You know you were showing out on the court trying to impress me. Devin makes himself a cup of coffee to go. Then he chuckles a laughs at his wife’s comment and replies no, I was trying to see if you and my brother were together as a couple.
Really, I was never Kelly’s type. Woman, my brother doesn’t have a type… he just likes a certain kind of woman… She laughs at him and says, that’s a type no matter how you define it honey. You and your brother are a hot mess at times. Yes, but you love us both… All the creole and black in the world couldn’t stop you from loving all this finesse and good hair. Oh we full of ourselves this morning, I see. Ha-ha…Well, baby I love to continue going down memory lane with you, but I got to go or I will be late. Devin kissed her good bye and walks out the door.
Finishing her oatmeal, Taylor sits smiling about the good old days of how she met Devin. How she would ride to Louisiana with Kelly from Loyola University in Chicago for spring break, homecoming, and let’s not forget championship games. She really thought Devin was going pro to play for the Chicago Bulls. That was one of his biggest dreams. To play on the team of his all-time favorite player Michael Jordan, until reality checked it and his name was Thomas Jackson her business focused father in law. He slapped Devin with reality when he didn’t get drafted into the NBA. Mr. Jackson had rules in his house for his two sons. You get an education and you can work for his company, or work for someone else’s dream.
Meanwhile, there is a knock at the door that startles Taylor a little bit. She yells out, who is it? She gets up to peak out her small window next to the kitchen patio, to discover her brother-in law Kelly at her door. Being funny, Taylor yells again, who is it? It’s me Kelly… Taylor is like come in… Kelly, what are you doing here? Kelly walks in the door with a big smile on his face. Taylor says; wipe that smile off your face, Devin left about forty-five minutes ago to meet you for a business meeting in the city. Kelly, has to think quick because he was picking Devin up this morning to make sure he didn’t miss the meeting or be late to the meeting like he was last week Tuesday. Really, he must have forgotten I was coming to get him to make sure he was going to be on time. Kelly, brushes his 6’5 muscular body past Taylor on purpose. You didn’t cook this morning sis… No hot meal for your husband. Taylor looks at his body language and just nods her head ok, I know he was late last week too.
Don’t worry I got you, remember he has been on his best behavior. Well, I better go. Kelly walks over to give Taylor a kiss on the cheek… she leans back and says, I know you tripping this morning right… I am married to your brother. We are not cut buddies in college anymore. Oh, yeah that very special relationship that we shared in college. Being sarcastic, Kelly looks and reminds Taylor: Yeah, right the one my brother whose name is Devin was unaware of the previous relations that went on between us. It’s our big secret that we swept that special friendship under the rug. Yeah, yeah, okay. Kelly asks, do you realize at some point you should probably mention that to my little brother. Taylor rolls her eyes at Kelly and points him to the door so he can leave. Her eyes say, get the hell out. She tells him … Now you just being rude and disrespectful.
How? Please explain that to me Sis. Kelly, you promised me on my wedding day that Devin will never find out about our little mid-night runs. Not all of them were at mid-night runs “Tay” … Don’t call me that! I am still tripping that you married my little brother. You and I were cut-buddie, Kelly nothing else and nothing more. Okay, we were friends too. But you do know the definition of a cut buddy right… Let me help you, a friend with benefits… no strings, no attachment, just sex when we needed one another to fulfill a need.
Well, dam Taylor, then there was a lot of “needing” going on between us 4 to 6 times a week. Waiving his hands and head as he walks toward the door, Kelly turns around and says, it’s too many dam Deceitful ass secrets walking around here. Well, just keep your dam mouth shut and live in the present and stay out the dam past, then there won’t be anything deceitful let alone will there be secrets lingering behind closed doors. Don’t you got a dam meeting to get to? Kelly slams the door without saying a good bye to Taylor.
She looks up at the clock to see that it’s going on 7:30am. The joy about her job is that she can jump on I-88 straight shot to work. So, she figures she better make her way out the house if she wants to get to work by 9am with the Chicago traffic. Who knows what the interstate will be like? Some mornings it moves and other mornings hit gridlock just before I-355.
Heading out the door finally, her cell phone rings and it’s her assistant reminding her about the 10 am meeting this morning. Taylor informs Melody that she will get there in time for her meeting with Mr. Davis. Driving out her driveway, Taylor is bothered by Kelly’s nonchalant attitude about their past. She has to talks with herself to make sense and to calm her nerves. She says out loud as if someone is in the car with her, he better keep their past relations to himself. He always reminding me about what we did then and how/why I should tell Devin. It’s better coming from me then to come from someone else.
Someone else just needs to mind their business and get a life. He got a lot of nerve. He will pay for his mouth acting like a little ‘bitch’ this early in the morning. We vowed to take this secret to our graves and dam it… that is exactly what’s going to happen. My wedding vows mean more to me than Kelly Jackson. I have to make sure Kelly keeps this secret and honors his promise to me… shit but how in the hell am I going to do this?…. Think Taylor… Big mama said, the past always has a way of coming back to the present. Not this time.
