Sorry I'm so slow..between work and my gaming..i get slack..hope you enjoy and thanks for the reviews!
Mark leaned back in the chair and stared up at the ceiling. It gad been three months..three long months since he had left Tama. He sighed , so her necklace hadn't magically appeared and he had gave up hope that it would. "Man you are as about much fun as a two dollar hooker on quarter night..what the hell is wrong with you?"
Mark sat up and looked across the room at his friends who were playing pool. Glen Jacobs, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall. It was Scott who had threw out the smart remark. But Kevin snickered and leaned on his pool stick. "Yeah Mark..you're starting to act like a woman..all sad and mopey..what gives?"
Glen laughed."I'm going to go order another round..you guys see if can get dopey..I mean mopey to talk."
Mark shot him the finger and Glen just laughed and headed to the bar to get another round of beers. Scott grabbed a chair and turned it around , straddling it and Kevin sat down across from Mark , fiddling with his long hair. "Good grief Kevin give it a rest , your hair looks fine." Scott said shaking his head.
Kevin just grinned. "Jealousy is a ugly thing my friend."
Scott rolled his eyes an then looked at Mark. "Okay so what gives..what the hell ya moping about..you're rich, you're retired..you got women left and right throwing pussy at you..I don't see the problem here."
Glen walked up followed by a waitress and he flopped down in a free chair. The waitress grinned at Mark and made sure she practically shoved her boobs in his face as she sat a beer in front of him. "Anything else sexy?" She purred at him.
Mark just sighed and waved her away. She made a face an set the rest of the guys beers down and flounced off.
Kevin just shook his head. "This is bad really bed, she was a red head and everything..Mark what the fuck is wrong with you?"
Mark took a drink of his beer."Nothing..I'm just not interested in some one night stand with a groupie."
Scott drank his beer and watched his friend, he had a sneaking suspicion. "So whats her name?"
Mark caught off guard just stared into his beer. "Tama."
Kevin started laughing and so did Glen. "I should have known..you been weird ever since you got back from that road trip."
Mark glared over at Glen. "Shut up!"
Scott laughed. "She must be something else if you're mooning over her..so why not just go back and hook up with her, instead of mooning like a lovesick puppy."
Mark sighed and stared into his beer."Because I'm a idiot...I don't know her last name or her address or even her number."
"Damn man you're slipping in your old age." Glen said looking at his friend.
Scott nodded. "Whats give man?"
Kevin watched his friend stare into his beer. "Well its a long story..."
Kevin leaned back. "We got all night..Talk."
The other guys nodded and Mark drained his beer and started his story.
Tama sighed and flopped down on the bed of her truck. She was doing a big flea market in cape Hatteras.
She always made good money here. She should be happy, life was great. Yeah right. Who was she fooling.
She missed her warrior ,more than she ever thought she would and she thought she had made a big mistake relying on fate or destiny. She wasn't some innocent kid, she knew her body well.
She knew she was pregnant. She had really fouled things up. She ran her hand over her belly, she wasn't showing yet, it was to soon. She had deprived her child of their father, why didn't she just take his number. She shook her head and smiled at people as they looked at her crafts. Hell she was on birth control. She had asked the doctor how this had happened and he had just laughed. "Child..do I really need to explain that to you?"
She sighed. Birth control failure just what she didn't need right now when she was testing Grannies theory on fate. "Bleeeh to the universe..not funny!" She poked out her tongue and the sighed.
She could try to find him on the scant information she had. Who was she kidding. Big, tattoos and his name is Mark..he might as well be a needle in the proverbial haystack. On the upside he knew she lived in or abouts near Cherokee, maybe he would come looking for her, they could run into each other in town again.
If he hadn't forgotten her already. The sex was awesome, but men forgot quickly and maybe thats all it was was sex. In that case she might never see him again. "Penny for your thoughts."
Tama looked up startled and smiled as one of her friends had walked up on her. "Hey Marta."
"Hey girl..what has you so deep in thought?"
Tama smiled. Marta sold crafts to here and there, they often ran into each other traveling."I'm pregnant."
Marta sat down on the bed of the truck beside her. "Hmm okay..how do you feel about it?"
Tama smiled. "Well a baby is a blessing..I'm happy bout that..its just I don't know her father's name or how to find him."
Marta laughed. "Well now that is a quandary..sure you wanna find him?"
Tama smiled at her friend. Marta was well into middle age,never been married or had any kids. She had long red hair and freckles, slim, she caught many a mans eye. Marta never had a problem getting a man, she just never wanted one permanently, said she was a loner. "Well I liked him a lot and I think he liked me..I decided to test grannies theory bout fate and stuff with him."
Marta nodded,she had asked Tama a long time ago about the unusual necklace and Tama had told her the story behind it. "So you liked him enough to go and throw that necklace away?"
Tama nodded, feeling silly. "Yeah..you think I'm crazy right?"
Marta smiled. "Yes I do..you should have got his number..but whats done is done..soo we deal with what we have. You hope this fate thing works and if that falls through, you love this kid with all you have."
Tama smiled and hugged her friend."Yeah you're right..I believed enough to do it..I just have to keep believing and if not..I have our child to raise."
Marta smiled."Sure and if you need any help..I'm here..well relatively speaking..I'm on the road as much as you ,but if you need me after the baby gets here..I'll come back to your mountain and stay awhile."
Tama smiled. "Thanks..I might just take you up on that."
Tama sighed, she had to deal with the here an now..no sense sticking her head in the clouds, if Mark found them, great ,if he didn't she still had reality to deal with.
Mark's friends looked at him as he finished the story. "Man she sounds like a whack job, believing you're going to find some necklace she threw in the river." Scott said nursing his beer.
Mark shrugged. "She's not..she just really believes if its meant to be, it will be."
Glen looked at his friend."Well you know what town she is from..thats something..You could go hang around hoping to run into her."
Kevin shook his head. "I bet she wont give you the time of day, unless you come with that necklace, if she really believes it that deeply..she might think, its not meant to be if Mark comes without the necklace."
Mark sighed."Yeah thats what I'm figuring..I could go back to that river and dive around..ya know look for it..hope it got snagged on a rock or something."
Scott, Kevin and Glen all looked at each other, know they knew that Mark was really crazy about this girl. "Well my friend..winter is upon us soon..be pretty cold diving around in a half frozen river..whats say..wait till spring and then if the necklace hasn't magically appeared..you could try that?"
Mark nodded. "Yeah I guess that would be the thing to do and who knows maybe she is right, maybe the necklace will find me." Mark tried to sound confident, but he sure didn't feel that way. He would cool his jets till spring and see what happened.
