Maya rushed out the door because she didn’t want to keep her sister waiting. When she reached her sister’s place she sent a text, ‘I’m here.’ Tonya came out and got into Maya’s car. The two settled on Outback Steakhouse. As the waited for their table, Maya looked at her sister and said, “The weekend I just had.” Tonya knew it was gonna be a juicy story. The waiter showed them to their table and after the drinks started flow Maya told Tonya about Trina’s pop up visit. “Chile, she showed up with nothing on and little jacket. I swore I almost attacked her on site that girl know her body worth it!” Tonya had never heard her sister talk like this, she knew Maya liked her. “What happened with Akil? Wasn’t you guys planning a date?” “Yes, this Thursday we are going. But even with him that connection is there. I don’t know what to do Tonya, and Trina knows about him.” “So Akil doesn’t know about her?” “No, I’m trying to figure out a way to tell him.”
The two finished their meals and talk about what was going on with Tonya. Maya truly enjoyed her time with her sister. The two laugh as the night went on. They left the restaurant and headed to Tonya’s house. Maya dropped off her sister and went home. Once she got to her building she saw Akil outside talking to another guy.
Akil said in Maya’s direction, “Where you going pretty lady?” Maya smiled and turned towards him, “home.” Akil, “I’ll walk you to your door.” He waved at his friend and caught up to her. “The date is set, I know you’re going to enjoy yourself.” “Really?” “Yup, you will see.”
Maya and Akil walked in the direction of her door. Maya, “Akil do you have a minute to talk?” Akil looked at Maya and nodded yes. Maya, “Okay.” She opened the door to her apartment and walked in. She said down on the first couch and patted the seat next to her to gesture Akil to set next to her. Akil sat down and wondered why Maya looked so serious. “Akil, I really like you and I want to continue to get to know you, but I want you to get to know me a little better. I feel as though you need to know something, so you don’t have to hear it from someone else. I have a question and I want you to answer it honestly.” “Okay,” Akil said. “How do you feel about dating a bisexual woman?” Akil looked at Maya, and thought before he spoke, “Its cool if it’s just someone I’m not looking to date seriously.” “Interesting, so if you met a girl you liked and she told you that, would you stop talking to her?” Maya asked and patiently waited his response. “Why are you asking me this, Maya?” “Just wondering is all.” Maya debated in her head and then blurted out, “because I’m bisexual and I want to be honest with you and don’t want to waste your time, after hearing the answer to my question.” Akil took a minute he could see that Maya was worried, “I don’t know how to answer that last question, I have so many questions for you. I don’t know how I feel knowing that, you know. Give me some time to think about it and I will give you my honest answer. Is that cool?” Maya replied, “Ok. Are we still going on our day on Thursday?” sounding hopeful. Akil, “yes, why not?” Maya was relieved for now. She would be worried until he gave her the answer to her questions about her sexuality.
