"I never get whats up with this whole "Hot and Raining" at the same time weather, like could you just pick what you want the weather to be? But then again, i guess its the best of both worlds,If i was mother nature i would be like 'Why choose one when you can have both.' " I went on and on about the weather as Nani just listened,rearranging light up plastic shot shooters on the bar shelves, and flipping over a leather couch seat to dust it. I work at Space, a night club in south beach as clean up crew, two blocks from where i live. (Lol for those of you who watched the 2nd season of jersey shore, its the club that mike gets them kicked out of) I leaned against the granite bar, watching her work like no other.
"But then again, if in florida it can be rain and be hot at the same time, then why can't it snow here in the winter? I grew up with the snow in New York, i never thought i would miss those tiny icey ****t flakes like do now." I examined my nails and sat myself on teh plush red cushion of the bar stool.
"But one thing i do like alot about south beach? Hot people walking around in almost nothing."
"Can you shut up and fuucking work? Like how long have you lived here? two years? i think you've gotten used to the hot people by now"
"Touche, Touche." I laugh at myself, was i really going on about weather? wow. Nani's phone buzzes. That means it's 4 pm
"Wow, look, you talked all through shift time. Good thing you're not a server yet, cause then you would have to stay all night."
but i couldn't really hear her, cause i was racing out the door of the club, to get home to my prized possesion, my baby boy.
(for the hotel room,Think Kourtney and Kloe take Miami like that)
"Mama!" Ernesto waved his arms in the air, and a little greek woman, Greta, turned around, with a bottle in hand.
"Ms. Delgado, Mr. Thomas had to go to take care of a wild hotel lady.. She was running around the hall ways naked, so he had to take care of that. He told me to watch Ernesto until you got back."
"Thanks Greta." I picked up Ernie from his seat "gweta!" he waved by to Greta as she walked out the door, blowing a kiss.
"What a nice lady. Does Ernie want to go swimming?"
"Ywweee." He threw his hands up and picked him up and threw on a pair of red swim trunks on him and i put on a swimsuit that covered up the stretch marks on my hips and boobs from the pregancy. Yes its a bummer, but my boobs grew at least two sizes and my butt is now permantly bigger.

Me, Clay and Ernesto all live in the Hilton because Clay is now the manager here. I walked over to the kiddie pool and sat Ernie in it who, with his floaties flapping, was huffing and puffing to keep his head up.
"Ernie, Just stand up." I laughed as i stood Ernie up, who realized he didn't have to struggle against the water danced and laughed. I felt a pair of warm hands on my shoulder
"Hey beautiful." Clay's lips touched my cheek "Hey Ernie." Clay smiled.
Clay never said he caught on that Ernie was Justin's, I think he just decided that if he ignored that part of Ernie it would go away, and it pretty much did. Clay loved him like he was his.
"Dada!" Ernie walked towards Clay, accidently fell onto my lap, but his hands missed and landed on the brick lining making a slapping sound. His eyes widened as he heard the sound. HE began to beat the ground making a pretty good beat, And i instantly was transported to the backstage of a Justin Bieber concert, watching baby videos pass by on the screen. One of Justin as a child beating on a plastic chair.
"Ernie stop." I pulled his hands off the ground, but he cried
"Mendi. Stop. Whats the problem." Clay watched Ernie continue to beat the side of the pool.
"Stop." It tried to pull ernie off the side, but clay stopped me.
"STOP! STOP! STOP!" Images of Justin flooded in my head. Ones of him as child, looking almost identical to Ernie, one as 14/15 year old, one of me and him together laughing, one of him now, at 19, being thrown out of club. They all raced in and out of my head, all blurred. I opened my eyes, and looked into Ernie's eyes, and saw Justin's. I knew i was having a panick attack. He was still happily beating a beat.
"I told you STOP!" I pulled Ernie too hard and he flung into the water. I watched him for a second, scared at what I just did. His head was under the water, his arms above splashing, he was scared cause he didn't know what to do underwater.
"MENDI WHAT THE FUUCK!" Clay reached in the small pool, getting his chest soaked in water, pulling Ernie out of the water.
