Wow, how this story unwinds like a daytime soap opera! I’m finding that Adonis lives a very drama filled life. I had written the last post over some time and during that time many many occurrences have happened to the point that if I posted all of them in the last post it would be been several pages. Now that you know how Adonis and I met, I can tell you a bit more of what has been happening over the last few months. I must say I’m VERY skeptical at this moment if he is even real!
About 4 months ago Adonis and I finalized the paperwork, then he was going to mail (signed I might add) it to me along with a check. Right about the time this was going to happen his baby mama (yes, you read that correctly) was admitted to a hospital down in Georgia (I can’t seem to recall the reason as to why she was admitted) and shared a room with an elderly white women. Apparently this woman does not like black people and requested that the toilet seat be sanitized after each use of her black roommate. Honestly, I still can’t believe that there are people out there like this, but sadly there are. Well, Adonis’ baby mama called him and explained what had happened and how upset she was by it. She was rightly VERY upset and asked that he do something about it. Adonis, also very upset by this, dressed in his finest and proceeded down to the hospital to right this insane wrong the best he could. Those he met with representing the hospital did not expect a well dressed and well spoken black man to come in. Adonis explained his fury at his “friend” being treated like she had some contagious disease and what were they going to do to make it better. Sadly, I’m sure after removing this horrible racist white woman from the room she shared with Adonis’ friend, the situation probably got brushed under the carpet. That truly makes me sad! Long story long, this is the situation that caused him to not mail the contract and check.
Next…yes, there are more occurrences that have completely paused or stopped our progress. Even at this point I’m not sure if it will EVER happen….
After a week or two of straightening out the hospital situation and his baby mama, his cousin gets into an altercation with a girlfriend. This girlfriend became quite angry and proceeds to call the police to arrest her boyfriend for abuse. I’m not completely sure of the details but Adonis was called to come and bail him out not to mention work to clear the charges. Situation number two and still no signed contract or check.
With those two things behind us, I’m thinking we are definitely going to get this going, but I was wrong again. This time Adonis is heading to New York (his second home) to meet with his accountant to send the design deposit I need to get started. He banks with a different bank than I, but we decided he could just direct deposit the money into my account rather than trust sending a large check in the mail. Well, his bank apparently charges for this AND won’t transfer single transactions. It wants several transactions, regardless of who holds the account, so that it can do many at once. Apparently this can take a week or so and, at that time, Adonis wanted to get things rolling ASAP and chose not to go this direction. Now in hind sight, this was a few months ago so what is a week or two at this point?!
During all of this Adonis’ dad had a stroke and was admitted to a hospital in New York. Adonis was spending most of his time at the hospital with his father to take care of him and be by his side as Adonis’ brother and sister could not be there 24/7. So, he stayed at the request of his mother. This soon became his job and he basically put everything, including his remodel projects, on hold until his father got better. Sadly, about a month in a half ago, his father passed away. Now it was time to heal and bury is father back in the Dominican Republic which is where his father is from. So instead of flying here to the Northwest he flew the other direction with his family to handle the funeral arrangements. I won’t go into all of the details of the funeral or family occurrences that happened while he was staying in Haiti and/or the Dominican Republic as they are personal to Adonis’ and not mine to share. But I will say he had some hard times there and when I was on the phone I wished I could have been there to hug him! I can tell you that he was in Haiti when Tropical Storm Isaac hit. They lost power for a few days and then watched an all ready recovering country be ripped apart again. My heart goes out to those who lost their lives. Adonis said that the streets there are dirt and after the rains came it turned into a mud pit of mud and debris making it almost impossible to travel by foot or car. Deciding to try driving he got in his car and was involved in a rear end collision causing him to lose consciousness. Now he could not fly back as the doctor told him the pressurization of the plane cabin was unsafe for him. So, he got on a boat out of the Dominican Republic headed to Miami where he proceeded to get on a bus that drove him safely to Georgia. This was a few weeks ago, now we are at the present.
Adonis has been having headaches but was determined to make it here to come and see me to get is life and projects back in full swing. Unfortunately, these headaches were pretty bad and had him worried, so he went to get an MRI that, after a few days of waiting, showed nothing which was great news but the headaches were still very prominent. Now, back in Georgia, he has just seen a neurologist who has performed several tests but won’t know the results until Monday September 24th.
So, Adonis was supposed to be here last week but that did not happen. Then, he was supposed to be here this week but that did not happen either. Now, what will happen? Only god knows. I just wonder if this Adonis is a real person, because I really like him and care for his well being. He makes me feel good about myself and my career. He puts a smile on my face whenever we talk, but now skepticism has sunk in and I really wonder if I will ever meet him OR remodel his homes. So many odd things have happened that I feel are scenes out of a day time drama. I can’t find anything about him on the internet (which he said was his doing as he has taken anything that could be traced to him off line) so I can’t prove his is real beyond the sound of his voice over my cell phone. Is a person going to jump out from behind a bush and say “you’re on candid camera and have been since February”?! I wonder……………..
