“The Men…” (Chapter 2 continued)From Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power

Welcome to Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power, and welcome back to “The Men in and out of Her Life. Grab your coffee and let’s get back to Nikki and Lacey, who are just heading for the club for girls’ night out. 🙂

Nikki put her jacket on and reached for her purse. “So are you ready to come out of hibernation and meet the wolves?”

“Oh, Nikki, I don’t want to meet no wolves, maybe dance with them,” she said laughing. “But I think I’m ready to come out of my season of singleness and have a good time with you and the girls. We’ve got a lot of catching up to do. The last time we were together was when we went shopping and had lunch. I wish Susie was coming so she could see this outfit she picked out.”

“Well, Peanut, I have a feeling she didn’t come because of him.”

“Yeah, I think you’re right. I don’t have a good feeling about him. Hey, we better get moving. I told Julia we’d meet her there at 9:00, but we should be okay. Did I tell you she got us a VIP table at this place?”

“Oh, my gawd, you didn’t tell me I was going out with royalty tonight. How in the heck did she manage that?”

“She’s an attorney with connections. What can I say? Besides, I think she spends a lot of time at this place. Let me just grab the directions and lock up and I’ll meet you outside.”


Julia pulled into the parking lot of the Cabana Club and pulled right up to her regular parking spot. As she got out of her car, she saw Sophie walking towards her. She waved, locked up her car and went to meet her. They hugged and complimented each other the way girlfriends do. “So where’s Susie?” Julia asked Sophie.

“She just said she couldn’t get away tonight.”

Julia refrained from making a sarcastic remark, a rarity for her. “Well, we’ll have fun without her. Wait ‘til you see how we’re going to celebrate Lacey’s divorce. I got us a VIP table, right up front, and wait ‘til you see the view.”

As they made their way towards the club, Sophie marveled at Julia as she took her by the hand and they walked right past the mob of people waiting in line. “I suppose that VIP table comes with cuts to the front of the line?”

“Absodarnlutely,” Julia laughed. “I just need to give these two tickets to the bouncer so he can get them to Lacey and Nikki when they get here.”

Sophie stood to the side at the entrance while Julia talked to the bouncer, who looked to be no stranger to Julia. If he’s any indication of what’s inside this place… Sophie thought to herself. Julia made her way back to Sophie and as if reading her mind, but really just reading her face, Julia whispered in Sophie’s ear, “Trust me; it gets better.”

And so does the story. I’ll let you go for now, but keep coming back; you’ll be glad you did.
