One Who Got Away......

In an effort to get on my schedule of blogging on Mondays Wednesdays and Fridays, I really thought hard yesterday about what I would talk about today. My life currently hasn't had any front page news. And I'm not messin' with that 100 Q and A meme! So, this is great time for a flashback story, right?


Hmm, should I tell the married chick story? Never mind, I talked about that when I first started blogging.

What about my first girlfriend? Never mind, that was well chronicled back in June.......

Ooh Ooh, what about the crazy chick who said I got her pregnant back in 2002? LOL!!!! Naw, that's a story I've been sitting on for a while, and I'll continue to sit on that one. But I promise I will tell that story one of these days....

Ok, well what about the chick that lived in your building and you were oh so close to hittin'....................?




Ding! Ding! Ding!







About 3 years ago, this new chick moved into my building. Nice and petite, just how I like them. To pursue her would mean going against the rules of dating, which is never to date anyone that lives in your apartment building. But she was so beautiful that I had to make an exception here. At least that's the excuse I went with at the time.
Anytime I would see Sherice, I would always say hi, trying to show as much teeth as possible. I never saw her with a man, but always with her 2 little daughters ages 7 and 1. So one day, I came out of the crib and I saw her in distress. Cue the music, Rob Mack is to the rescue!!!!!!!!

Sherice: Hey, do you know who's car this is?

Me: I've seen the person, but I don't know them or where they live.

Sherice: Well they blocked my car in, and I don't know where to find this person. Can you do me a favor? I'm going to go try to find someone, can you just stay here and watch my kids for a minute?

Me: Sure
(Thinking back now, its pretty amazing that she thought I was safe enough to watch her kids for a minute, but I guess she felt I was cool. And I am of course, Rob loves the kids!)


So I'm sitting there babysittin' lol, asking the 7 year old and her cousin "kid things", like cartoons and school and what nots, and about 10 minutes later Sherice comes out.


Sherice: I found the person, thank you so much.

Me: Oh it was my pleasure. I love the kids. Hey, I would love to take you out sometime. Let me get your number and we can talk later.

Sherice: Well I don't give my number out, and I just moved up here from Mississippi by myself. But I'll take your number.

Me: Ok that's fine.
(Not a victory but she did take my number.)
You moved from MS huh? Do you have any family up here?

Sherice: No not really

Me: Well, look, if you need anything, just knock on my door anytime. I'm at apt 1306. (Subliminally, I'm offering myself. LOL)

Sherice: I'll keep that in mind.


So off her and the kids go. "Just give me a chance", I thought to myself.

A few weeks later, I see her and the kids, with the baby in a stroller. I was off to a wedding but seeing her delayed my travels.

Me: What's going on Sherice?

Sherice: I'm taking my kids for a walk. I'm actually about to go to the grocery store
(Grocery store is nearly a mile away)

Me: Why aren't you driving up there?

Sherice: My car is in the shop. They stole the headlights.

Me: Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. Well come on, I'll take you up there. (Again, cue the music, Its ME to the rescue!!!)

Sherice: No that's ok.

Me: Come on, I insist (smile is constructed perfectly at this point)


So she agrees, and I drive her to the store. As I drop her off, I put in another bid. "If you need me for anything, just call me".......


On a lonely Saturday night about 2 months later, I get a knock at my door. Its like 1030 at night. Who the heck is this? No one comes to my crib unannounced. "Who is it?", I yell, trying to sound mean.....



"It's Sherice"


Oh shit, what a surprise. And the crib is a mess!
I open the door. "What's going on?"

Sherice: I need a big favor. I'm locked out of my apt, and my brother (who was visiting) has my keys and I don't know where he is. Can I come in for a little while until I get in contact with him?

Me: Oh sure

Sherice: Ok, let me get my kids

So as she darts off to retrieve the little ones, I'm trying to set The Guinness Book world record for cleaning up a spot. I think I threw everything in the closet. LOL.
She came back about 5 mins later, this time with the kids in tow. I'm trying to find something for them to watch, while I entertain mommy. Nickelodeon sure comes in handy.
Ahh, I'm finally getting a chance to rap a taste (LOL remember Martin used to say that) with Sherice, and she informs me that she moved from Mississippi to be with the kids' father (the baby daddy). He is from Chicago but he would trek back and forth between Chi and MS. To be closer to him, she decided to move up here. But he got caught up in a murder and has been locked up for the last year. So she's up here with no family, just his. I felt bad. Another quiet, lovely country bumpkin falling in love with a thug. She could have done better. But oh well.......


After an hour and a half of talking, its becoming quite late. She still hasn't reached base with her brother. The kids are falling asleep. Time to go into Mack Mode, Rob......


Rob: Well its getting late, and your babies are falling asleep. The kids can stay on my couch, and I could make a pallet for you in the living room next to them.

Sherice: Ok, that's fine.

So after I make the pallet for her, I come up with a BS excuse to lay next to her.

Me: Well I'm going to lay out here with you just in case someone comes to the door or your phone rings and you don't hear it.

She agreed. Wait I know that shit didn't work, did it?
So I'm laying next to her, but I'm far away. I didn't want any parts of my body to "accidentally" touch hers, making it uncomfortable for her.

Sherice: Why are laying so far away?

Me: Well, I didn't want you to think I was trying anything.

Sherice: No, its ok. You can come closer. It's been a really long time since I've been held by a man.

"Rob, You've done it again!!!"

So I lay next to her, holding her, and I sat there for about 5 minutes debating if I would make the "move", then I said "what the fuck, I may not ever be in this position again", so I start to kiss her neck. She's feeling it, man......
She begins to rub my head. She turns around and we start to kiss passionately. I'm harder than a MF at this point.....I take her shirt, work the bra off, and begin to work my tongue on those small but still lovely breasts of hers. I go down even further, proceeding to take a trip downtown. So as I'm "driving" thru the scenery, she's moaning louder. Remember, her kids were sleep on the couch. As a matter of fact, the 1 year old wakes up, and sleep walks over to where we were. She layed down next to mommy and quickly fell asleep again.

Let's go in my room, I tell her. She agrees, then she tells me "Damn you really know what you're doing, huh?" (See Nsane, you asked about what #43 meant)...
I smile to myself, always cheesin over any compliments from a females. We then go into my room to finish what we started. I go to my top drawer to get a condom. I quickly slide it on, and get back on the bed.


"I can't believe I'm doing this", she says
"I can't believe it either", I'm thinking in my head.
She says it again "I can't believe I'm doing this."


So I kid you all not, as soon as I was about to penetrate, she stops me.
I don't think you all understand.
This is how close I was: The tip was touching her lips, ok? That's how close it was.


"I can't do this. We have to stop. He's the only person I've ever been with, and I feel like I'm cheating."


DAYUM.



Double DAYUM.

"That's ok, I understand" I say.
Even though dude was going to be locked up for a long time (he says he didn't do it, hmm...) she felt the need to be loyal. I guess...............

So after the near hit, we laid back down in the living room. She stayed the whole night.

Morning comes, and I'm on some Love Jones shit right, trying to wake up early and make some breakfast for her and the kids. I'm literally LMAO as I write this now when I think about that. She finally gets in contact with her brother, and after breakfast her and the kids head home.

We did talk a few times after that night, I even went down to her apt. to kick it. I wanted to finish what I started so bad. One day she confessed that she thought about me on plenty of nights, but didn't want to call because she felt a need to loyal to ol' boy.

A few months later, I see her in the lobby and she informs me that she will be moving out to San Diego within a week. I saw her one more time, as she was moving..........



Every time I think about her, I always snap my fingers in that "damn I that close" kind of way.....





I know I'm not the only one this has happened to.





Thanks for Reading,

Robert Mack

I don't care what nobody say...you were right to stop when she said wait. If you would have kept going...it would have been rape. Sounds like she would have had a good case.

(I am an Adovocate of victims of Sexual Assault...can't let that go.)

Now you know you can't be pushing up on women with no car, no man, and plenty of babies...What are thinking?

Mack...find some single women, Baby. Single!

Royce's Daughter

I've read this story a few times and I've laughed out loud...you know I dont embellish or fabricate nothing...lol...

Nsane
LOL...getting all acclimated to your surroundings huh? She told me that he had told her that she could date other people, but she didnt want to. That was only guy she had ever been with. Or that's what she told me...as for the kids, I mean what can I say...it just kinda happened...She was petite, her booty was decent though...I guess I should mention she was light skin, but then yall always get on my case for lovin me a yella one...

Isis

Negropino

Divine Lavender
I love women too much to go there..never under any circumstances would i take it there....I still to do this date can't understand rape...but that's another topic for another day....

Now that one we've all heard.

You did the right thing, Questionable "consentual sex" is much to costly these day. You're a gentleman.

I am laughing my ass off right now.... I hate the almost hit..can't do a damn thing about it but put some blue draws on to match those balls...Lately I have been a victim of the "snatch and run" about 3 times in the last week...after all no means no.

Thanks. SOmetime I wonder if being a gentlemen is the reason I'm where I'm at......


1 in the same
Good, nothing like confirmation from others to make you feel better...I'm waiting to hear what Zed and Slish say on the matter...
This is the one story that I can say that I've laughed at the most....so are we going to hear about these snatch and run joints on the blog?

Girlfriend was dumb Rob Mack. D-U-M-B.

You are in some strange man's apartment that you don't know. In addition, you have your kids with you. You start playing gamnes, teasing....and then you change your mind?

She is VERY lucky that you are a gentleman. DUMB ASS. She could have gotten herself into a very dangerous situation.

And Mr. Mack....you did the right thing. Damn the one that got away!

You were a GENTLEMAN, Mack, because any other man might not have "understood". It's sad she had to bring the kids with her... Maybe it's best she got away.

Blogger thee modern isis said...

lol jokes baby.. all jokes.

Let me put on my serious mode. About the situation at hand.. you did what you were supposed to do. If she was really on the "loyal" tip then she would have stopped you before it even got to that point.

Maybe that one was supposed to get away.

Blogger The Mistress said...

Ok, this story frustrated me and I'm not even a guy! WHY would she let you take your dick out, slap a condom on it, prepare to penetrate and THEN STOP YOU DEAD IN YOUR TRACKS? I don't get it.

Worst part is, her baby's daddy was probably taking it in the rear at jail while she was being "loyal".

But I'm cracking up at "Cue the music, Rob Mack is to the rescue!!!!!!!!"

Aaaaahahahahahahahaha

MAAAAAAAACK!!!!!! Boy you should have licked the pussy!!! If you would have gone downtown...She would have let you go uptown!

Listen Bruh. When you have a woman that close to the edge. Its not an accident! She wants to be there. Ol girl wanted you Rob. Her saying "I can't believe I'm doing this" Should have been your cue..To stick your tongue in her mouth or lick that pussy till she finally said "OOOOOOh Daaaaadddy.Slide lil mack up inside these sugarwalls"...Women never play games when it comes to sex. They know they're giving us the ass before we even say HELLO!!!

I'm sure lil brother you will not let this happen to you again...:)

I guess she felt comfortable around me. That's the only way I could explain. Women's intuition or something.

Newy
Everytime I read this story I laugh. If I figure out how to do a favorite posts on in the sidebar, This will definately be on the list.

JoJo D.
Well remember the kids were there because she didn't have any place to take them at the time. I'm sure she didn't expect the situation to happen. Neither did I. It just happened. LOL.

Isis
It was 3 years ago. I'm richer now for my experiences. LOL!!!!!!!!!

The Mistress
Tell me about it!!!!! I bet dude is still in jail gettin rear ended..lol


Slish
Man, I did!!!!! That's what I was talking about when I said I was "driving thru the scenary" ... and she said I knew what I was doing....What Can I say, she got away....It's only happened twice, and it hasn't happened since.

Nowadays I would try to talk my way into it (still dont think I would do the "accidental" slip though)....When this happened, she said she couldn't do it, and I quickly said ok....Like I said this only happened once (twice if you count the kinda-near hit when I was in HS).....

So you're trying to tell me this aint happened to you?

Mon Sep 11, 04:22:00 PM  
Blogger Knockout Zed said...

I'm telling you yes, it happened to me...ONCE. I kicked myself for it for months. I vowed "neva again". If we fuckin' around, and she has willingly disrobed and is lying under me or straddling me, she "chose her adventure".
