The system gained momentum from the west as the drops increase. As if anyone else needed additional motivation to get back on the train after the most senior woman on the train gave Mr. Chow and LeTron the most embarrassing lashing of since the great 80s. She claimed her role as the mother of the train with her sharp Brit twist of words and a face of many lessons and harsh stories. However, she was highly respected and Mr. Chow and his thugs appeared to be civil by showing respect to her words. We all sat there like quite little school kids as Mr. Chow gave me a mean look as a drop of blood escaped from his nose, causing damage to his Super 400-count sport coat. I wanted inquire about his tailor, but I knew posing such a question would eliminate my serious tone after putting him to shame in a short and quick sword match.

Janette wiped my nose as it appeared that Mr. Chow accomplished a blow as I the stained towelette when she finished with my nose from the most gentle wipe I have know since the day of creation. Mr. Chow and I looked at each other, as we both knew a second round was in great need of settlement. "Darling, relax and try to have a good time! We didn't come this way to have it ruined by a small group of Kung-fu thugs, now did we?" as Janette smiled and gave my a charming look. She grabbed a cup of hot coffee to see if I could take a sip and try to calm the anger that was displayed from within. "You took it from zero to 60 in a short click of time I see? What happened to the Ebony male that I met at my coffee shop and the guy that took me to lunch?" as Janette gave a gentle grab of my chin.

"Being a man of class and style comes with a degree of changing when the time is appropriate" as the look of danger fell of Letron's face and there was a retreat back to the classy male. 'So, tell me, what will be our next adventure together?" as Janette gave an smile that no man can resist. "Give me a description of a night with the Ebony male" as she laughed with a joking tone while cuddling tightly to my arm.

"Well it would start like this! I would send you a text message early in the week, requesting to be ready for dinner at 6 on Friday. Might not call you until midday Wednesday, just to check on you and to see how your week is going. When Thursday comes around, I would send you flowers with a note saying, I cannot wait to see you on tomorrow. Friday, I will arrive with one rose in hand at your doorstep, ready to take you out on the evening" Janette says, "Wait, I'm supposed to do all of this willingly, with no push back? Boy go 'head, finish up!" LeTron placed his head into the headrest and started to smile. "What's wrong, Ebony male? Do you want me to get Mr. Chow back over here and take care of you?"

The train announcer gave notice to the next stop on the tour. The rain gave perfect timing and the sun gave grace and decided to give one more performance before running into the ocean. A tear slowly came down LeTron's face and Janette said, "What's the matter, Luv? are you Ok?" Slowly shaking his head, "Yeah, I'm okay. The middle of March is always a trying time with me, that's all!" Janette came closer, "You care to share?" LeTron look at Lynette and said, "Yeah, maybe later! Let's enjoy this next stop and think about what we are going to do about Mr. Chow and these diamonds."
