4.8 Malicious Intent: You Hurt The One You Love
“Hopefully this slows him done enough that he has to reschedule your home visit.” Asia said.
“With the damage that the candy bar is going cause to his fuel system it’s going to be cheaper to just buy a new car than to try to fix that old piece of junk.” Giovanni said gleefully as watched Asia’s black hair glimmer in the sunlight.
Asia whipped around to face Giovanni as her propulsion of hair swinging created a small gust of wind that carried her flowery aroma to his nostrils. “Are you serious?” Asia Asked bewildered.
“Yeah what did you think was going to happen?” Giovanni Asked confused.
“I just wanted to stall him not destroy his car!” Asia exclaimed.
“Can you lower your voice please?” Giovanni asked as he grabbed Asia by her arm. Her skin felt soft and smooth underneath his strong hands. “Look we didn’t destroy anything what we did to his car is fixable all I’m saying is that it will probably cost more to fix the car than what its worth.” He whispered. Asia could feel his breath making the hairs on the back of her neck stand up.
“Is that supposed to make me feel better?” Asia asked through clenched teeth quietly trying to keep her displeased demeanor. But she could see Giovanni’s chiseled body in high definition through his tight shirt and it was breaking her focus. “The man is a struggling teacher and we just messed up his only way to work.” She whispered angrily as she swallowed hard. Asia’s heart began to beat faster and her palms began to sweat. Giovanni was so close to her that she could smell the pizza on his breath. It was almost as if she could taste the pepperoni’s and the garlic crust.
“The man threatened me and said he would hurt you are you seriously feeling bad for him?” Giovanni asked confused. “If this is what it is like being the good one I’ll take being the villain any day.” He said as he loosened his grip on her arm. “See being evil is more cut and dry, if some pisses you off you fuck them up and you don’t feel guilty about it.” He said. “You so called hero’s are insane you feel the need to save everyone and reason with the unreasonable, the man is crazy and we have to get him before he gets us.” He added sternly.
“Whatever, can you back up please?” Asia asked nervously with an annoyed look on her face.
“Why am I making you nervous?” Giovanni asked with a sly grin. “I can hear your heart beating, you know.” He said with a smile as he ran his fingers through her hair. “This is going to be hard for you to explain to Jerry.” He added.
“Look don’t start anything when we get in here.” Asia demanded. “And you probably here my heart beating fast because of your strong cologne and the garlic on your breath.” She said with a sarcastic smile as she shoved him. “I could barely breath because you were so close.” She said. “I have some mints if you want one.” She added as she began to walk away.
Giovanni put his hand up to his mouth and breathed out. “Yeah let me have one.” He said as he followed her into the gym.
