“Tony says he’s changed,” I say in a firm tone. “And I’m meeting him for dinner later this week, so we’ll see. We’re not getting married or anything. It’s just going to be a casual meal, where we feel things out.”
Sydney rolls her pretty brown eyes.
“Well, tell Anthony hi for me.Not,” she quips.
With that, we both burst into laughter. But then, my friend sits up straighter, glancing at the candlesticks again.
“By the way, how did you get those babies of the club? Did you stick them up under your shirt and then waltz out? Or did you put them in your bag?”
I grin at her.
“Please girl. You know I’m more innovative than that. Tossing them in my bag would be too easy.”
“What did you do?”
I flutter my lashes.
“Well, it’s complicated. Are you sure you want to know?”
Syd leans forward with eagerness.
“Yes! Tell me!”
“Why, are you going to steal my technique?”
She shakes her head. “No, I could never, but curiosity is getting the best of me here. Seriously Tay, I want to know.”
I laugh before leaning forward to whisper, even though there’s no one else in my apartment. “Well, the truth is, I inserted one candlestick into my ass and the other in my pussy.”
Sydney stares at me, her jaw on the floor.
“OMG. Are you lying? Is that even possible?”
“Nope, it’s the truth, and yes, I was walking funny when I had the two candlesticks buried in my snatch and asshole. Any girl would walk weird if that happened.”
Sydney lets out a low whistle, impressed.
“Holy shit, girlfriend. What are Clay and Casper doing, banishing you to Missouri? If anything, you should be giving a master class to the other hostesses! Holy fuck, that’s so foul.”
“I know. Clay and Casper have it all wrong, but what can I do? I’m on a plane two weeks from now. They’re giving me time to clear out my apartment and to put my stuff in storage, but that’s all.”
Syd shakes her head again, brown curls bouncing.
“Man, two weeks is so soon. Do you think they’ll change their minds?”
I shake my head sadly.
“No, I doubt it. They seemed pretty determined, so I guess that’s where I’m headed.”
Syd shakes her head again.
