Thank You 5/?
~I'm sitting here with a drink in my hand
And Your presence I can't ignore
I must admit I like watching you dance
But it seems like I've seen this before
Girl you look like (like), my first wife (wife)
Though I've never been married before
So I kiss your hand and tell you thank you
And you turned and asked me what for?~
I can't believe what is happening. My own wife had no idea who I was and my family didn't believe she exists! This day had turned out to be the worst day of my life. I drove back to LA and decided to sleep this all off. I silently prayed that when I woke up. I'd come to find that this was all just a bad dream.
Morning came…but Letty didn't. I felt miserable. I lay in bed not knowing what to do. I didn't wanna live. O God…and my children…Lizette, Daren…I was drug out of my thoughts when my bedroom door opened. "Dom, um…the guys wanted to know if you were coming in? The day's almost gone." Mia raised her eyebrows waiting for my answer. I sighed. "No, I'm not ready, but I do gotta get out."
I rolled outta bed, took a shower, got dressed, and headed to the nearest pub. My objective was to drink myself into abyss. I plopped down at the bar and a woman turned around. "What can I get you? Sir-?" I almost fell back outta my seat. "Letty?" she glared at me. "YOU again? You're a freakin stalker!" I glared back at her. "I am not a stalker. I swear I didn't know you worked here. I just came in to get a drink. Even though I do know you, I guess it was only in a past life…"
Letty blinked twice, frowning. "What?" I shook my head, "Never mind. You wouldn't believe me anyway." She eyed me for a minute, scanning my face and then her harsh expression softened. "Well, between you and me, I believe in reincarnation…and I kinda feel bad about spraying you with mace, plus I'm a tad bit curious…so, shoot. I'll listen to your coo-coo story."
I smiled a little, "You will?" Letty smirked, pouring up a glass of water and placing it in front of me. "Here…the last thing you need is alcohol. I get off in an hour."
It was around 9 when her shift was over, so we decided to go to a jazz joint called "The Rendezvous". We got our table and I sighed. "I don't' even know where I should start," Letty chuckled. "Would you look at that; we've got something in common Dominic, cause neither do I!" I squinted my eyes at her and grinned. She may look different, but she had the same vivacious spirit as his Letty. "You can call me Dom." She nodded. "Okay, Dom."
I cleared my throat and began. "I guess I'll just tell you about yourself; you're one of the best female street racers in LA. you drive a Nissan 240 SX and we're married. We have two kids. A little girl named, Lizette, who is 2 years old and the spitting image of you. And a boy; Daren he's 6…and he looks like me but has your feisty attitude. You're best friends with my sister, Mia, who you got into a fight with two nights ago over Pasta Spices!" I went on and on about the Team, and just giving her as much information as possible. She laughed at some things. Surprisingly seemed sad when I spoke about her parents, but for the most part she just listened without saying a word. I finally finished talking around 11:30, just as the song "Killer Joe" was coming to an end. Letty inhaled deeply and shook her head a couple of times, "Wow…I don't even like Nissans!"
I hadn't expected that the Nissan would be the only thing she'd comment on and I stared at her in utter amusement thinking, she was definitely Letty. I started to chuckle and Letty smirked. I stood up and stuck out my hand. "Would you care to dance?" It was rather random, I'll admit, but I loved the way Letty danced. She smiled softly and accepted. We slow danced to smooth jazz for a good 15 minutes, till I walked her off the dance floor and over to our table.
As we were dancing I was feeling those familiar butterflies in the pit my stomach. I was attracted to him, I couldn't lie, but I had only decided to talk to the guy because I felt bad, but he was so…amazing. I knew I couldn't believe what he had just told me was true, but if I hadn't known any better I would have. It sounded so sincere, so ….REAL. when we got back to the table, I glanced at Dom, purposely not making eye contact. "I gotta get going. Thanks for this, it was nice." Dominic picked up my hand and insisted. "No, thank YOU," I shook my head gently pulling my hand away. "What For? I haven't done anything."
~For our first kiss on next week
For when we made love in 6 weeks
For the ring you wore proudly,
Three months from now!
For when you said "I Do" Next March.
And for those beautiful children of ours.
Yes I know it might sound strange,
Cause we just met…but I thank you in advance~
Dom got this serious look in his eyes. "For everything Letty; even though you don't remember. I do: I know how happy you've made me and how beautiful my life has been because you were in it…"
I couldn't help but hold my breath. I almost wanted the story to be true…I didn't want it to just be make believe. I knew I needed to get back to the real world but maybe I could dream for just a little longer; I smiled and handed him my number. "Call me. I'll see you later okay. Bye Dominic." He gave me a brief hug and I left. When I got home all I could think about was what it'd be like being married to him…
