He answered instantly and asked franticly, “What the fuck happen?”
I told him about Ronny trying to sell me Roofies, and drugs. Ethan got all excited and told me, to call Rita. Then he said, there’s something, I have to do, and he hung up, on me!
When I walked into the McDonald’s parking lot, I heard sirens blaring. I looked around just in time to see a couple of police cars going up the hill and pulling into the parking lot, of that old nursing home, that I just came out of.
I called Rita, she answered her phone instantly asking, “Are you alright, what happened? I was so worried.”
As soon as I heard her voice; my insides started to tremble, and my macho, tough guy, facade began to crumble. I couldn’t help myself. I began to stutter and mumble, when I tried to tell her, Ronny won’t be bothering you anymore.
Rita said nervously, “Meat come over here right now and tell me what happened.”
When I pulled up in front of Rita’s house, she came running down the sidewalk. As I got out of my jeep, she wrapped her arms around my neck, and began kissing me all over my face.
God she felt so good in my arms, I never, ever, wanted to let go of her.
She pulled away from me, took my hand, and led me up the side walk. She was nervously talking a mile a minute, asking me, all kind of question, but she never stop talking long enough, for me to answer any of them.

As we walked into her little apartment; I knew I was going to lose control of my emotions any second. Rita turned towards me, looked into my eyes and asked, “Are you alright Honey?”
That’s all it took! I wrapped my arms around her, pulled her tightly against me, put my head on her shoulder and began sobbing like a baby, “Oh God Rita, I’m not a thug… I’m not a bad person.”
Rita whispered,” It’s alright, let it out, I know you’re a good person.”
I don’t know how long I stood there like that, making a complete asshole out of myself. I finally managed to regain my composure and said, “I’m sorry Rita, I couldn’t help it. ”
She kissed my eyes lids, as said softly, “Let me kiss away your tears. It’s alright; you needed to get that out of your system. I’m honored, that you shared your tears with me, like I shared my tears with you earlier today.”
“Thanks,” was all I could say.
Rita smiled as she asked, “do you want a cup of coffee?” “Yeah sure, that would be great.” I answered,
