Most people have a preconceived notion that it's mainly men that have commitment issues. Truthfully, until meeting and falling in love with Tamela Marie Jones, CEO and founder of QT Entertainment, TJ "The Snake" Robinson certainly thought that. Now, thanks to her father's years of emotional and physical abuse towards her mom, Tamela had a real fear that if she committed to him, she would lose herself. Even worse was her fear of abuse from the one person who was supposed to love her the most, her man.
"Excuse me, Mr. Robinson," the waiter said, snapping TJ out of his private thoughts.
"Will Ms. Jones be arriving soon? Would you like me to bring you some fresh bread or another glass of wine?"
Looking at the bread sticks that he hadn't touched, TJ responded, "Actually you can take these and I'll order more when Ms. Jones arrives. I don't need any more wine right now. Thank you."
"Yes, sir. As soon as she arrives, we'll show her to your table."
Within twenty minutes, Tamela walked in. From where TJ was sitting, he had a clear view of her. He observed with pride the many male patrons discreetly watching her as she walked over to his table, some of them sitting with very attractive women themselves. Their eyes still strayed in her direction.
Tamela exuded the kind of raw sensuality that would cause a man to take the risk of getting the shit slapped out of him if his companion caught him looking at such an attractive woman. She was what he liked to refer to as an All American Beauty: finer than Gabrielle Union, more booty than Jennifer Lopez, and smarter than Oprah.
Rising as she neared the table, he greeted her. "Hi baby. As usual you look so good I'm ready to skip lunch and go straight to dessert--you."
"You're so silly, TJ. You know your greedy behind isn't going to skip lunch. Not even for me."
"Tam, for you I'd give up anything you asked me too."
Tamela looked directly into his eyes before responding. "Really, or would it depend on what I'm asking you to give up?"
