I don’t mean to do it and I know it’s a mistake—a huge mistake—but I find myself taking brisk strides down the long road the two men always take. I don’t know if they’ve turned or entered a building but I keep walking straight ahead. I would have missed them completely if I didn’t hear the squeak of his voice as my sweet ducky was yanked into the elevator of a doorman building.
Not even thinking about the assault charges I’m walking toward, I yank open the glass door and head toward the elevator. A behemoth of a security guard steps in front of me as I’m watching the numbers change on the display above the doors.
“Can I help you, sir?” I’m a big guy at six three and two thirty but this guy makes me feel like a light weight.
The lights stop on eight. They’re going to the eighth floor. The penthouse. Good to know. “I’m just here to visit a friend.”
I reach for the up arrow behind him.
“I’m sorry, sir, but all guests have to be announced. Who are you here to see?” He pulls up a tablet and waits for me to respond.
The prick on eight. “Actually, I can’t remember his name. We just met but he left his phone in my office. I’ll just run it up to the eighth floor.”
Pushing a few buttons on his tablet, the guard holds out his hand. “I’ll see that it gets to its owner.”
“Thanks but I’ll be seeing him tomorrow so I’ll just wait.”
I turn tail and walk out. That kid better not have another fucking bruise when I see him next.
