"That's all you've got, witch," Qadira said, "you can call the cops anytime."
It was six o'clock. Qadira had already snuck off into the back and changed into a golden glitter dress with shoes to match. Nachine left out and avoided teaching her the lesson of being overdressed. Nachine went ahead and rode with her. They went up to Nachine's room and freshen up before coming down to the dining area. The blonde headed guy had returned. This time he kept his eyes focus on, Qadira. Nachine tapped her fingers against the table that Qadira and her shared.
"Go over there and introduce yourself before he stops gawking at you.
"Isn't the man suppose to come to me," Qadira said. "I am the woman."
"Get your butt over there," Nachine said grabbing her hand.
"I am not a prostitute," Qadira said snatching her hand away. The waiter from yesterday morning brought a wine bottle. He dropped a folded paper in front of Qadira. Rocking the wine in its ice bath, he spread his legs apart.
"You know I am old enough and she's not," Nachine said sticking her wine glass out to him. "Fill my glass." Qadira opened the note and read it before Nachine snatched it. Ditch the crone with the bottle and join me.
"A mother shouldn't read her daughter's info," the waiter said taking the note. Then he balled it up.
"I see you later at work," Qadira said.
The little twerp ran from her chair joining Elliot. Nachine could care less. She returned back to her room and called Valerian on his phone number.
"Hey, little crap where's my cut?" Nachine asked.
"Quiet down Nachine," Valerian said. "I wasn't ready for you yet. Everything is not set up."
"Come to pick me up on Evergreen and Ten Mile Road and prepare a room for me where you are living," Nachine said. She slammed the phone down and emptied out the room of her belongings. She called her favorite snotty clerk over to check her out. Then he tossed her two complimentary mints off the counter. Nachine consumed the mints with two bites and a forced swallow.
