“So it’s alphabetic. You just punch in the name and it’ll tell you where to go.” Camille said with a smile. Camille was a tall, voluptuous woman. Her hair was shoulder length and a natural curly. She was pretty and very friendly.
“Alright. Thanks.” I said returning a small smile as I began to work through the big ass stack of papers Avia left for me. Camille nodded once and went back to her desk. The filing system was pretty simple and I got the hang of it quickly. No one here seemed like they hated their job and Camille assured me that it gets better with time. Avia was a piece of work though. This was going to be hard, but I need to suck it the fuck up.
I had just finished the last file 2 and a half hours later and was in the break room when he came back to annoy me.
“Hello again.” He said casually flirting with me as he propped himself up on the counter with his elbow while looking at me. I shook my head slightly and rolled my eyes without looking at him. Do I look like that type of girl? Like honestly I don’t get it. What is it about me that makes niggas think that they have a chance?
Mr. Brown chuckled lightly and made himself another cup of coffee before walking out. I know it was my first day and I shouldn’t be rude, but he just gave me a bad vibe.
I disentangled myself from Drew, sitting up and reached over to get my phone off his night table. He rolled over and hooked his arm around my waist pulling me back down. He sloppily kissed on my neck causing me to giggle. “Babee..” He mumbled against my skin, sending tingles up my body. I smiled happily and kissed him gently on his soft lips. Today was the day we finally tell Kaimoni about us.
I always had feelings for Drew and it was so perfect how we all became friends and I could talk to him all the time. He was a quiet scrawny kid, but I could see that underneath the loose ass polo he was cute. He was so sweet and brilliant.. and funny…. and adorable…
I felt him shift under me as he yawned. I took that as a chance to sit up, scroll through my contacts, and find Boo Scadoo.
Me: Boo! I miss you. Double date tonight?
Boo Scadoo: You have a boo now? (;
Me: Maybe.. maybe not. 8:00 Olive Garden. (:
Boo Scadoo: What? I need details. Now.
I laughed and smiled to myself enjoying this feeling too much. Drew got up and went into the bathroom as I laid back hitting her back.
Me: 8:00 tonight. Love you!<3
I set the phone down beside me and closed my eyes letting my arms drop over my face. I guess I started to drift off because next thing I know Drew’s heavy ass is on top of me, knocking the breath out of my body. I laughed and tried to push him off pretending to be mad. “Get off me! You’re killing me.” He smiled and looked down at me. He used one hand to prop himself up while the other stroked my face gently. “I love you.” My heart began to pound as a blush spread over my face. He’s told me he loves me a dozen times, but this time it felt different. It was different. It had a deeper meaning.
I smiled and giggled a bit to myself, ”I love you too. Now get your heavy ass off me.” He rolled his eyes playfully and rolled off me. I quickly pecked his cheek before getting out of bed. “Listen. Tonight we’re having dinner with Kaimoni and Ayron.” I made my way to the bathroom before looking back at him as I heard him sigh. “We put it off long enough.” I paused and smiled, ”Now get yo sexy ass up and go make me some lunch.” I bit on my lip winking at him before going into the bathroom to clean up.
This was getting too complicated. I already fucked up once with Zhina and now I’m with Kaimoni. Fuck is wrong with me? I shook my head as I picked out the key to her apartment from my chain and walked in. It smelled like straight Febreze. I coughed a little and took off my shoes walking into her room. I guess she didn’t hear me because she didn’t flinch and continued to look through her massive collection of clothes.
“Ughhh!” She yelled exasperated, tossing her clothes on the floor. I reached out and touched her arm causing her to jump. Her face went from shock to surprise to delight. She flung her arms around my neck and hugged me knocking me off balance. I chuckled and kissed her hair as my arms tightened around her waist.
“Hey.” She mumbled against me. I chuckled again and sat on her bed, pulling her down on top of me. She snuggled up against me smelling my skin. I always found it weird, but she had an obsession with skin and didn’t give a fuck about how I felt. The way she didn’t care what people thought of her made me love her more.
“I think you should wear that blue one over there.” I said pointing to one of the dresses she had discarded on the floor.
“Mmm… but I don’t like the way my boobs look in it.” I gave her a look and shook my head.
“Just wear it babe. You look good in everything.” That was the complete truth. The first time I saw her at Pulse, class.. anytime.. she always looks good. “Girl you be killin’ ‘em.” I said imitating fabulous. She laughed and got off me picking up the dress.
“Alright…” She said as she pulled it on and pulled out the red bottoms I bought her. A smiled made it’s way to my face as I stood up and took her hand twirling her around slowly.
“Damn..” I said as I bit my bottom lip. “You ready? It’s almost 8.” She nodded and grabbed her bag and phone going into the bathroom.
“Make up time!” She called out. I shook my head and sat back down on her bed pulling out my phone.
New God Flow had just stopped playing when we pulled into Olive Garden’s parking lot. I was so excited to see who Olivia was with. I know she had been talking to someone from all her smiles and happiness, but she keeps everything lowkey. Ayron came around and opened the door for me helping me out the car. I fixed the dress that stopped mid length. It cut out in the back like an x and came up high in the front causing my boobs to look weird. I pushed them up, catching Ayron shake his head before I slipped my fingers in between his. We walked into the restaurant and asked for reservation under the name Key. The hostess eyed Ayron hungrily to my amusement before leading us to the table. I was mid chuckle when I saw Olivia with Drew at the table. My mouth fell open as we stopped at the table,”Why didn’t you guys tell me?!” Ayron stood there awkwardly as they both made uncomfortable faces.
“Come on babe. Sit down.” He pulled out my chair and I took a seat, as he did the same, looking at them. There was an awkward silence as we all eyed each other.
“C’mon son….. I’m soooo happy!” I shouted, smiling as they followed my lead.
“Okay good. I really wanted to tell you, but we didn’t wanna mess the friendship up. “ I shook my head and laughed.
“Bitch. I’ve been waiting for this to happen.” She was all smiles while Drew sat there trying to hide his feelings. “And you nigg.. I know you’re happy.” He shook his head and chuckled a bit as Olivia spoke up.
“Oh my! Hey Ayron. That was rude of me.” She got up and walked around the table to kiss his cheek. Leave it to Olive to odee. He laughed and nodded.
“It’s cool, Olivia.” Just then the waitress came and asked us what we’d be drinking that evening.
I stumbled into my apartment as Ayron tried to steady me. I got a little carried away drinking tonight. It was such a good vibe I couldn’t help myself. I wrapped my arms around his neck , pushing up against him. “Babeee.” I whined out, smiling.
“Make love to mee,” I sang out as my ankle decided to roll causing me to stagger. He laughed and steadied me by wrapping his arms around my waist tightly.
“I didn’t know you could sing babe.” I made a face and bit on my lip. Shit. No one was supposed to know that.
“Yeahh… doesn’t matter. I want you to make love to me.” I said pouting. He chuckled and picked me up quickly, hooking my legs around his waist. I giggled and kissed him hard slipping my tongue into his mouth. They fought with each other as he carried me to the bedroom all the while caressing my body, touching places only he was familiar with.
I really fucking can’t. Ayron leaned over and tried to hold my hand like shit was okay. I shifted in my seat so my back was facing him and I was looking out the window. I heard him sigh heavily, but I didn’t care. He was always on some shit. He didn’t even fucking tell me why we had to leave or where we were going. I leaned over and turned the radio on, blasting it. I looked at him out of the corner of my eye and he looked pissed off. How is he gonna be mad at me when he was the one who ruined the night? I rolled my eyes and leaned back, letting the music relax me. After the first song I began to slowly calm down. I looked over at him admiring his face. Even when he’s upset he still looks good. If I weren’t supposed to be mad at him I’d fuck him right now. He glanced over at me and his face softened a little bit, but he was clearly upset with something other than me.
“Warehouse is on fire. All my money and shit is in there. Ross is gonna be mad as shit.”
“Oh..” I understand that he was upset, but I didn’t really care. He was better than selling anyways. He could do much better things with his life. There was an awkward silence in the car as the guy talked on the radio. His voice was raspy and annoying. I turned it off and the awkwardness intensified. I took his hand and linked our fingers.
We drove for what seemed like forever. I looked out the window, but couldn’t see a thing. Ayron didn’t say another word to me. Sitting there I realized how tired I was from everything. I shut my eyes leaning my head back on the seat. Somehow I drifted off into a deep sleep. I woke up to Ayron shaking the shit outta me. I blinked a couple times trying to make my eyes focus on my surroundings. There were huge houses here. We were parked in front of a house in a long circular driveway. Ayron sighed and scooped me up into his arms, carrying me to the door. The house was large and brown. It was entirely made of brick with large windows in the front. It was the biggest house I’d ever seen in person. He unlocked the door with a key off his chain. Why does he have a key to this big ass house? The inside was very spacious with little furniture. I figured a guy lived here. He set me gently down on the couch. I looked up at him snapping from my thoughts. He looked down at me and held my gaze for a minute.
I opened my to ask him why we were here instead of at the warehouse or his crib when his phone rang. He quickly grabbed it and put it to his ear.
“Yeah… I understand.. I’m at the safehouse…I’m with Kaimoni… I know..” From what I could hear he was being reprimanded for something wrong he’d done. He saw my confused face and walked away to some other part of the house. I layed back on the couch and covered my face with my arms. What a fucked up date. I decided to salvage the night and followed the path he’d gone. I went up the stairs and made a right down the long hallway. One of the doors was open so I peeked my head in. I didn’t know if someone was here or not so I wanted to be careful.
“I know, I know, I’m not..It’s not serious… I just said it isn’t serious. Don’t worry.” With that he hung up the phone and stuffed it in his pocket. What the fuck does that mean? He sighed deeply and hung his head back, covering his face with his hands. I pushed the door open gently and walked as silently as possible towards him. He seemed so stressed out, it made me realize how inconsiderate I could be.
“Babe.” I said, stopping in front of him. I got on my tip toes and pulled his arms from his face and let my arms slide down to his neck. We held eye contact for a minute before he leaned down kissing me with more passion than I thought possible. He picked me up and I wrapped my legs around his waist. Our lips moved across each other as if they were doing a dance. Our tongues wrestled and our breath came in quicker. Somehow we ended up on the bed. His lips tasted like heaven. I wanted him and I wanted him. More importantly my body wanted him. His hand travelled over my curves as it got wetter in between my legs. I pulled away from the kiss gasping for air. His lips trailed down my neck leaving small kisses that made my skin tingle. He bit my skin just above my collar bone and I gasped out in ecstasy. He knew exactly how to drive me crazy. His tongue trailed across my chest and he began to undress me. He got up to get a condom and I pulled off the remaining clothes. He stripped slowly in front of me as my eyes covered his body. His chest was chiseled to perfection. His body never failed to make me catch my breath. I looked up at his face and noticed that his eyes were doing the same thing mine were. I smirked and he rolled the condom on before plunging into me. I gasped as he went to work on me.
An hour later I was cumming for the fourth time. I was in pure bliss. Ayron had that good dick that’s hard to find. He flipped me over so I was head down ass in the air. I moaned out louder with each thrust. He began to move faster and I could feel him losing his hold. I could feel my next orgasm building up. We both came at the same time and collapsed. He rolled off me and laid back catching his breath. Still trying to catch my breath I swung one leg over him and put my head on his chest. I could hear his heart beating quickly in my ear. I loved this man so much. It was so quiet in the room, all you could hear was the intake of our breath and heartbeats. I sighed contently and looked up at him tracing his facial features with my finger.
“Where are we?”
“My safehouse. The police were all over there and I’m not tryna get arrested.” I nodded once and bit my lip. He looked at me knowing there was more, ”Just ask.” I smiled a bit and looked him in the eyes.
“Who were you on the phone with?”
“One of my niggas.” I nodded again, deciding whether or not to believe him. He smiled and kissed my lips jumbling my thoughts. I laid my head back on his chest, deciding to let it go.
“Okay. You have to take me back in the morning, I have class and then work.”
“Aiight.” He reached over and pulled a remote out of seemingly nowhere then turned on the tv. Fresh Prince was on and it was the episode when he and Carlton tricked Jazz into thinking they were in witness protection before. It was funny but I was ridiculously tired and found myself drifting off to sleep. I felt Ayron Kiss my forehead and whisper I love you before I knocked out.
It felt like the whole world was shaking. I ran as the ground fell apart right after I took another step. I could see everyone I cared out at the end, but I couldn’t get my legs to work. The earth was shaking even faster and I couldn’t possibly take another step. I was too tired. I felt myself falling the cracks. I reached out for someone to help me and screamed as loud as I could.
I popped up and saw that Ayron was shaking me and the bed to wake me up. This nigga. I shook my head and looked at the clock. It was 5 fucking am.
“What. The. Hell.” I managed to grit out before laying back down, getting comfortable.
‘We have to leave now if you want to get to class on time.” He said walking away from me to get dressed. Ugh, I hate life. I groaned and got out of bed slowly. All I had was a skimpy party dress. I didn’t even remember where I put it. I scanned the room when he walked to me handing it to me. I sighed and mumbled thanks putting it on. It was gonna be a long ass day.
Class was so long. Why am I even in school? I hate all my teachers, classmates, homework, everything. I was back at home now grabbing lunch and changing before I had to go to work. I looked through my closet and chose a black pencil skirt and a simple button down with a nice blazer. I pulled out my nude pumps and reapplied my makeup. My phone vibrated letting me know I have a new text
Babe: Good luck at your new job Flower Bomb. You want me to pick you up after?
He’s so adorable. Smiling I hit him back.
Me: Awww, thanks bae. (: I’m gonna drive there so no. When are we going shopping though?
Babe: Aiight. We can go Friday if you want. You work every other day right?
Me: Yeah. Come through later.
I sprayed Love Spell on myself and looked at myself in my full body mirror. My hair was straight and pulled back into an elaborate bun. My makeup was subtle but noticeable. I was a nervous wreck. I don’t even understand why, but I didn’t want to mess up. I was finally making progress in my dream. Taking a deep breath, I grabbed my keys and bag and drove over to the law firm.
It was a large building with a lot of windows. It looked so corporate and professional. The building intimidated me, I’d hate to meet the people. But I had to so sucked it up and went up to the 5th floor. Inside there were two female receptionists . Their smiles sort of calmed me down.
“Hi. I’m Kaimoni Cole the new intern.” One of the receptions was black with tan curly hair. She was very light skinned and pretty. She looked up at me and I read her name tag which said Lydia.
“It’s right down that hallway. Make a left and ask for Ms. Lowe. “ I nodded and smiled and strutted down the hallway towards my new boss. Upon making that left I saw that there were a lot of desks and people typing busily away at computers. I asked for Ms. Lowe and the employee looked at me with fearful eyes before directing me to her.
“Where’s my new intern dammit?!” I heard someone shout. I looked around and saw that no one had even flinched. I walked on into Ms. Lowe’s office and saw a short skinny woman with short permed black hair. It was cut in an asymmetrical cut with bangs. She was very pretty. Her eyes looked chinky though.
“Hi. I’m Kaimoni Cole. I’m the new intern.”
“Finally. I need you to file these papers for me and then go get my dry cleaning. “ I looked at the woman in disbelief. It had been a minute and she was already telling me what to do. But this was my job so I had to do it.
“Okay.. where and how do I file them? Where do you get your laundry done? Is it payed for?” I got my notebook out ready to write down what she had to say when someone knocked on the door. I turned around and saw a man dressed in a suit. He looked so good. He was probably about 5’9 with white teeth. His skin was like dark chocolate and smooth like silk. He smiled at me, looking me up and down. I hated when people did that shit. I’m not a piece of meat. I cleared my throat signaling him to stop.
“And who is this Avia?” he asked taking a step into the room.
“This is my new intern, Kayla.”
“Yeah whatever.” She responded.
“Well welcome to the staff,” He said reaching his hand out for me to shake. Great. I have to work with a psycho bitch and a pedophile. If the pay weren’t so good..
I took his hand and shook it as I nodded.
“I’m Mr. Brown.” He said tossing me another easy smile. “Well, I’ll let you get back to work. Hope to see you around more.” He turned around and walked out. I looked back at Ms. Lowe and saw her rolling her eyes.
“Anyways Kayla, here’s the address and ask one of the receptionist how to file. I have a spa appointment. Make sure you have this done before 4.” She grabbed her bag and sashayed out of the room. I sighed heavily and walked back out to find someone to help me.
I’m gonna change the character faces and a few details. Also I’m gonna make a new page for it. So00ooo look out for that new page.
We stood there silent for a moment. Anger was rolling off of me in waves while he just stood there and stared at me. His eyes were studying my face and trailing down my body with hunger. It would have made any other girl uncomfortable.
“What the fuck?” I exclaimed, ”You know you’re only supposed to come through when I call you. Obviously, I haven’t done that so what are you doing here?” He seemed to snap out of his daze of reminiscing and looked me in the eyes.
“I miss you girl.” He stated. His tone was monotone. He was beginning to creep me out.
“Well, it be like that sometimes. You need to leave. I have a man now.” He cocked his head to the side and looked at me calmly which was the exact opposite of his tone.
“A man? We were supposed to be together Kaimoni.” My eyes squinted as I looked at him with my mouth hanging open.
“What? No. You were just a fuck…” I was going to go on, but the look on his face was scaring the shit outta me and I tried my best not to show it. “You need to leave Christian. Now.” He continued to look at me then abruptly turned around and left. My face was scrunched up in pure confusion as to what just happened. I made sure to lock the door then went back to my room. Olivia’s dumb ass was still on the phone and singing random shit.
“Olivia. Tell me why the weirdest shit just happened?” I pulled the phone off the charger and walked into the living room with my phone and laptop. “Christian just came over here looking mad crazy. He looked mental. I was actually scared for a minute there and you know how I am.”
“Chrissy the flow?”
“Yes! He was like,’We were supposed to be together Kaimoni’, but his voice was monotone the whole time. That nigga is so creepy. This has been one weird ass weekend.”
“Eweh.. I know right? I’m just glad that Ayron got there soon after I called him because it could have definitely been worse for you..” I heard people talking in the background and cars, ”hey listen, I’m walking somewhere. I’ll call you back later okay?”
“Yeah. Bye love.” We both hung up at the same time and I tossed my phone onto the other cushion on the couch. I was really nervous about starting my new job tomorrow. I have a class in the morning, the new job at 3, then a class at night. This was going to be a rough ass semester. I knew I wanted to be a lawyer, but I’m just so damn lazy and being someone’s bitch for the next 3 months doesn’t sound too great. Lowe’s law firm was a really big one here, but I’m just.. so lazy. I said and pulled up the website trying to get a feel for what was ahead of me. I had 2 “business” skirts, 1 blouse, and one pair of dress pants. I really needed to go shopping if I wanted to work there. I shot Ayron a text telling him that we were going shopping.
Me: Baby cakes, I need new clothes for my new job.
Ayron: Go buy some then.
Me: No. I want you to come with me and pay for it. (:
Me: lmfao, I love you! Pick me up tomorrow at 12.
God, he was such an asshole. I know I should tell him about Christian, but I just don’t want to hear him go on and on about killing him and shit. That boy was so over dramatic.
I looked through the pages of the website and made sure I knew exactly where it was. I sighed and closed my eyes relaxing my body for the first time that day. Life fucking sucks. I must have stayed in that position for 20 minutes before I remembered I had reading to do for school the next day.
The streets were busy today as I walked to his apartment. It was a nice day though. The sun was shining brightly and it was so warm. My arms swung lightly beside me as I walked with a big smile on my face. I was so happy. We were finally going to make it official. A flower booth caught my eyes and I stopped to look through the flowers. One in particular, a deep shade of blue, drew me in. It was beautiful and smelled wonderful. I brought my face closer to it and inhaled it’s amazing scent, closing my eyes automatically. The shop owner must have been watching me because he walked to me and began to speak.
“You know, where I come from men give this flower as a symbol of affection.” I nodded and smiled, as I took a step back from the booth. I bumped into someone and whirled around quickly, startled. I was staring at a gorgeous man. He was so damn sexy. You could see his muscles defined under his V-neck shirt. His skin was a dark shade and looked so smooth. I wanted to touch it. I found myself biting on my bottom lip as I studied his body.
“I’m sorry.” I mumbled as I took a step back still facing him. He smirked noticing how my eyes trailed over his body.
“It’s good ma, my fault.” He licked his lips and reached behind me picking up the flower.
“Excuse me. Can I buy this for this beautiful lady right here?” I was startled. He must have been watching me. I smirked and moved out of his way as he paid the owner and handed me the flower.
“Why thank you mister.” I smiled and sniffed it.
“No problem beautiful. You can call me Michael.” It was like a smile was permanently stuck to my face. I nodded and remembered to keep my cool as I stuck the flower in my hair.
“Olivia.” I nodded with a small smile on my face and turned to walk away,”It was nice meeting you.”
“Wait!” He shouted after me. I stopped walking and suppressed the smile forming on my lips as I turned around.
“I was wondering if you wanted to get some coffee?”
“Maybe some other time.” I said with a smile as I walked away.
I got to his place about 10 minutes later in a ridiculously good mood. I knocked on his door twice before he opened it.
“Hey bae.” He said as he wrapped his arms around my waist and pulled me into his apartment. My arms locked around his neck and our lips found each other. He kissed me soft and tenderly. Stopping the kiss, I smiled against his lips and dropped my arms, disentangling myself from him. “Babe. I’m so excited! I’m tired of keeping us a secret.” He had been moving around the room and stopped to look back at me.
“I don’t know how Kai will take it. I’m not sure if we should tell her.” Why would he say something like that to me when I was in such a good mood?
“Don’t even start with that Drew. We’ve all been friends for a long time and it’s fucked up to not tell her. “ He nodded and walked into the kitchen. I followed behind him and wrapped my arms around his waist. “It’s going to be fine babe.” I dropped my arms and squeezed his ass hard, causing him to jump, then tried to run away. He turned around and picked me up, holding me up in the air. I was laughing hysterically and kicking my legs. “Put me down!” He laughed and set me down on the counter and stood in between my legs to kiss me. The kiss was hard and passionate unlike how he kissed me moments before. Our hands were exploring each other’s body. His hands slid down my back and pulled me closer to him. I giggled as he whispered in my ear.
“You seem kinda tense babe. Lemme take care of that for you.”
“Aowww! Drew boo tryna get freaky on the counter?”
“Yes.” He replied, his voice husky with lust as he kissed me again.
I leaned back in my chair at the warehouse. Niggas were late on my delivery and everybody knows I don’t fuck with my money. Tyga came up to me asking about a couple shipments, but I was too tired to really care and I sent him off. I missed Kai. I think I might do something nice for her tonight. I called Bow over to me and asked him for a favor.
“Ay, can I stay at that one crib tonight by the beach?”
“Yeah, aiight g.” He nodded his head once and turned to walk away.
“And could you have someone go there and make it look romantic and shit. I’m trying to do something nice for kai, but you know I’m not good with that lovey dovey shit. “ He chuckled and nodded his head.
“Aiight g, there’s an extra key under the lamp thing outside the door.”
“Aiight, thanks.” I took a deep breath and put my hands behind my head, closing my eyes. Julian. I haven’t thought of that nigga in the longest minute. It’s been years since I last saw him and shit didn’t end too well. My jaw automatically flexed and tightened as I thought about the last time I’d seen him. I knew that if we ever saw each other again things would pop off. That dream came from nowhere, but I had a feeling something bad was going to happen, and soon. I grabbed my phone and scrolled through my contacts looking for Flower Bomb
Me: Be ready at 8. Wear something sexy.
Flower Bomb: Aowwww! A dress or like jeans?
Me: I don’t care, just look good for ya man.
Flower Bomb: lol. Okay babe.
I got up from the chair and dapped my niggas up as I announced that I’d be leaving.
“Bow. The place ready?” He nodded in response and dapped me up.
“Where are we going?” She asked me for the tenth time since we got in the car. Kaimoni looked amazing. She wore this tight tan dress that hugged all of her curves. Her hair was curled back and fell down her back. Her makeup was flawless even though she really didn’t need it. I could stare at her all day long. I reached over and took her hand in mine, lacing our fingers.
“You’ll find out when we get there babe.” She sighed heavily and leaned her head against the window.
“Was the blindfold really necessary?”
“Yup.” Another heavy sigh. The ride was quiet, but peaceful. After about 30 minutes of driving we finally got to the little cottage on the beach. I got out the car and opened the door for her, helping her out. We walked hand in hand down towards the door. Once her heels hit the sand she wobbled and almost fell, but I caught her.
“Fap. Fap.” I said, imitating Kevin Hart as I laughed. She hit my chest playfully as we walked to the door.
“Why are we on a beach Ayron?” She said annoyed.
“Just let it happen.” I dropped her hand and pulled the key out of hiding, then opened the door for her. She took two steps in before asking her next question.
“Can I take this off now?”
“Yeah. Hold on.” I walked around her and made sure everything was good. There were candles lit everywhere and you could see the moonlight shining through the windows. The food was on the table covered and a bottle of champagne was in the ice, chilling. Bow was my nigga for this. I owed him. I walked back to her and took the blindfold off her eyes. I watched as she took in everything. A small smiled formed on her lips as she saw the candles lighting the room. She walked further into the room and looked at the table.
“All this for me?” She said looking at me with the biggest smile on her face. I just nodded in response. She walked to me and wrapped her arms around my neck kissing me softly. “I love you Ayron Brown.”
“I love you too Flower Bomb.” I said smiling. Seeing her happy, made me happy. “Now let’s go eat. I have no idea what’s under those covers, but let’s hope it’s good.” She laughed and shook her head, making her way to the table. I pulled out her seat for her then walked around to the other side once she was seated. We uncovered the plates at the same time to see a plate of white lasagna.
“Mmm, my favorite.” She said before digging in. One thing I loved about her was that she wasn’t afraid to be herself. She ate like there was no one around and I loved it. We were eating and having good conversation when my phone rang. She looked at me giving me a look that said ‘you better not pick up that phone’ so I didn’t. It rang and rang until it went to voicemail. I had just popped the bottle of champagne when my phone rang for the second time. I rolled my eyes and picked it up.
“What?” I answered irritably. “What?” I said with more concern at what I’d just heard. “Fuck… okay…. I’m coming.” I stood up abruptly trying to avoid Kai’s face.
“What the hell?”
“We have to go babe. I’m in some shit right now. Let’s go.” She stood up and walked out the door to the car. I knew she was pissed but the warehouse was on fire at the moment with all my money and the product I’m supposed to be selling. This was bad. This was really bad. I locked the door and got in the car, speeding to warehouse.
“You don’t treat me right!” She yelled slapping me across my face. My mouth fell open and saliva flooded my mouth as I got angry.
“Fuck you mean I ain’t treat your right? I’m always here for you when you need me, I love you, I take care of you!” I grabbed her by her shoulders and stared her deep in the eyes. She didn’t even falter at all. She shrugged my arms off her and turned around to walk away, ”You ain’t shit. I fucking hate you.” With that she walked away from me. It felt as if my heart was breaking. The only female I’d truly cared for just broke my heart and walked away. All of a sudden I was back at her crib and saw her kissing up on some random nigga. I tried to hit him, but it felt like my arms were dead weight. No matter how hard I tried I couldn’t hit him. I couldn’t see ole dude’s face because he was kissing Kaimoni the whole time. I pulled him up off her and both of them looked at me like I was crazy. She stood up and shouted at me to get out, but I wasn’t paying attention. I was gonna kill that nigga. I turned around to face him. He had a low fade, nice white teeth, and brown eyes. I couldn’t believe my eyes. Julian.
I woke up sweating and my heart was going a mile a minute. I sat up, wiping the sweat off my face and looked over at Kai’s peaceful face sleeping. Her mouth hung open, getting drool all over my pillow and she snored. Despite the gross habits she looked so cute. I brushed the hair out of her face and kissed her forehead before getting up to use the bathroom. Looking in the mirror, I didn’t even recognize who was standing there. This guy wasn’t me, his mind was gone. He looked angry, hard set lines covered his face. I shook the thoughts out of my head, washed my face, and went downstairs to cook breakfast for Kai.
The only thing I had at this crib was cereal, a box of macaroni, and eggs. I figured she’d like the eggs best so I pulled the box out of the fridge and began to cook. I’d just finished the eggs and began buttering the bread when I heard her yell. I dropped the knife and ran up the stairs to the room she was staying in. When I got in there she looked pissed.
“What’s wrong?!” I half shouted at her.
“I started my fucking period.” She mumbled as she got up. “I got all the sheets dirty, I don’t have a change of clothes, and I need a fucking pad.” She looked up at me as I made a face at the dirty sheets. It was silent a moment before I nodded slightly.
“Don’t worry babe. We can just wash the sheets and I’ll take you home today if you want.” I looked up at her and walked over to her slowly, seeing she was still angry. I pulled her into a hug and she sighed, looking up at me.
“Okay… do you have Advil?” I nodded and took her by the hand, leading her downstairs to the kitchen. Her eyes lit up with surprise when she saw that I cooked. I let go of her hand and smirked as she inhaled the scent of the food. She nodded appreciatively and smiled, taking a seat on the counter. “I didn’t know you could cook. Every minute it becomes clearer to me that you aren’t a hood nigga.” She said chuckling. I made a face at her and pulled the bottle of Advil out of the cabinet nearest to the stove, tossing it over to her. I finished buttering the toast and put two pieces in a plate and some eggs. She grabbed the fork and devoured the plate of food in minutes. I sat there watching her with my eyes wide. She looked up at me and giggled, wiping off her mouth. “Sorry bae.” I just shook my head, laughing, and kept eating. Just as I went to take another bite there was loud banging at the door. Kai looked at me with an eyebrow raised. This was my get away crib and no one knew where it was except for Bow and Tyga. Those niggas ain’t crazy enough to bang on my door like that though. I got up and pulled my gun out of a kitchen drawer. Kai looked at me crazy.
“Do you really think that if they wanted to kill you they would knock?” She said sarcastically. I rolled my eyes and tucked the gun in my jeans. I opened the door cautiously and Zhina’s loud ass came barging in the door.
“I told you I was going out today! I need you to watch her for a couple of days boo.” I looked her up and down mugging her while Kaya’s head bobbed all over the place. I took my daughter from her and the bag just as Kai decided to get curious and come over to where we were. I watched as her mouth fell open at the site of us two.
“Oh hellll no.” She said, looking Zhina up and down. “Fuck is she doing here?”
“Oh so this is your new flow?” Zhina asked, chuckling as she looked Kai up and down. I was beyond annoyed at this point. “What a busted bitch. Going for my sloppy seconds I see.”
“No. She’s my girlfriend and you’re my baby momma. How the hell did you know where I was? Get the fuck out.” I said through gritted teeth. She smirked and shrugged.
“Who the hell you callin’ busted? Bitch have you seen your face lately? Fuck outta here before I rearrange that shit.” Kai said, taking an involuntary step towards Zhina. She was fuming and you could see it.”
“Aiight. See you later boo.” She blew me a kiss at me and turned to leave. I noticed she didn’t tell me how she found out I was here. Kai’s face was priceless. It looked like she was thinking of the perfect way to kill her. Kaya was staring at Kaimoni and smiled, before giggling. It seemed she already liked her. I kissed her cheek and walked back into the kitchen to make sure she was okay.
This was way too much. This whole weekend.. wayyy too much. I was tired and cramping and pissed off. After not talking to Ayron for weeks and finally having some time to ourselves, she had to come and ruin it! I just can’t. I shook my head, getting rid of my thoughts as my stomach grumbled. I walked back into the kitchen to get more food when I saw Ayron in his little world with Kaya. She was adorable. She was light skinned, had curly hair, Chris’s smile and eyes, and Zhina’s nose. Kaya was absolutely positively gorgeous, how could I resent her? It wasn’t her fault that her mommy is a hoe. I walked over to them and held my arms out.
“Can I hold her?” He gently put her in my arms. I bounced her back and forth a smile forming on both of our faces. She let out a shrill of giggles, her eyes dancing with amusement. “Who’s the prettiest baby I know? You are!” I said in a baby voice, smiling down at her. I stopped bouncing her and rocked her back and forth. ”I’m Kaimoni your daddy’s girlfriend.” I said, still smiling. I felt Ayron wrap his arms around my waist and rest his chin on my shoulder.
“My two favorite woman in the world here in my arms.” He kissed my neck on my spot. I giggled and shook my head.
“Now you know that isn’t right. Your daughter is in my arms.” He just smirked and kissed it again. Kaya reached her arms out towards his face and slurred the word dada. He smiled and kissed her forehead. She giggled and smiled at him.
Home sweet home. I’ve never been so happy to be in my apartment. I went into my room and quickly grabbed my towel to go shower. Being with Ayron and Kaya was great, but I had to get back to reality. I put my phone on the charger and got in the shower. The hot water felt amazing as it ran down my dirty skin. It burned my skin, but it was a nice burn. It made me feel like I was still alive.
“Fuck.” I mumbled to myself as I got out of bed. I woke up a half hour late and he’d be home soon. I quickly got to shower, the only escape from the hell I lived in. In the bathroom I peeled off my clothes and stared at myself in the mirror. You could see old and new bruises all over my body. One in particular on my hip was definitely noticeable. It was his whole handprint and it hurt like hell. I poked it and felt a burning sensation travel up my body. I winced in pain and turned on the hot water in the shower, letting it warm up. I ran my hair through my stringy brown hair and thought to myself how ugly I was. I don’t know what it was that I had done as a child to deserve this, but it must have been really bad. I felt like scum. Getting lost in my thoughts I didn’t realize that the water was hot or that he had gotten home. I stepped into the shower and let the water burn my skin. It made me feel alive.. made me wish I was dead. I closed my eyes and turned so the water could run down my back. I grabbed my loofa and was lathering it with soap when the bathroom door opened. He walked in smiling and pulled the shower curtain back.
“You already got the shower ready for daddy?” The monster wasn’t even drunk this time. I shook my head no once and tried to close the curtain but he just pulled it right back. “Don’t matter. I’m still coming in.” I shook my head no at him, a mixture between anger and fear showing in my eyes. He began to undress and I turned off the water, trying to get out before he was done, but he was faster than me and grabbed my towel. I had one foot out of the shower and was covering my chest with my arms. He chuckled and grabbed my ass, pulling me towards him. He whispered in my ear. ”Nothing I ain’t seen before baby.” He reached behind me and turned the water back on, pushing me back into the shower. I screamed and cried, begging for him to leave me alone. He went on with touching and groping me as if he hadn’t heard a thing. He pushed me up against the wall and fucked me hard and without any mercy. When he was done he shut off the water and got out the shower while his cum ran down out of me and down my leg. That’s how my baby boy was conceived.
I looked down at the tattoo on my hip that said,” Maybe life chose me after all.” With my mood, being severely killed by my thoughts, I quickly ended my shower and walked out the bathroom. I wrapped the towel around my wet hair and went into my room to change into tights and a shirt. I looked over at my phone and saw that I had 4 missed calls from Olivia, 2 from Drew, and 1 from a random number. I didn’t even recognize the area code. Taking, the phone off the charger, I called Olivia and put it on speaker as I dressed.
“Girl where the fuck have you been! I’ve been so worried about you! Are you okay? Are you home? Have you talked to Drew? What happened at the club?” She flung questions at me every two seconds. I took a deep breath and explained to her all the shit that went down over the past few days.
“… and no I just charged my phone. You were the first person I called. Wassup with Drew?”
“Mm, nothing.” She said all too quickly. I was about to ask her wassup when there was knocking at my door. They were banging on the door like I owed them money.
“Oh hell no. Hold on hoe.” I walked out my room and through the living room to the door. I swung the door open before looking through the peephole. “What the he-“ That was all I got through before he grabbed my face and kissed me hard. I was too in shock to do anything at first, but when I realized what was happening I shoved him off with all my strength. “What the hell?!” I exclaimed, finishing my previous statement. He just stood there with his hands in his pockets, wearing that dumb nigga pose.
This stupid motherfucker, I couldn’t believe my eyes! This nigga came up to me and tried to hug up on me. I pushed him off and moved over to the corner of the couch, pulling my legs up to my chest, as I mugged him.
“Why the hell am I here?”
“I’ll explain to you later Kaimoni,” He stated simply, taking a seat beside me. He draped his arm around my shoulder getting comfortable. I glared at him furiously and pushed his arm away from me.
“Fuck you. Who the hell do you think I am? You can’t just kidnap me and keep me here, especially since we haven’t talked in the longest fucking minute.” I rolled my eyes and looked at the short one. “Are you guys gonna feed me or no..?” He looked from me to him and back to me trying to decide what to do. He gave short stuff a nod and he went into the kitchen to make me something.
“Kai. I don’t know why you’re acting brand new right now. You weren’t acting like this last night when you were kissing on a nigga,” He said with a smirk on his face trying to make a joke out of it. God, he disgusted me.
“You know damn well I was drunk. “ I said with disgust coloring my words. “Where are my clothes and why don’t I have them on?”
“You threw up everywhere last night. I had to put you in my shit and call these two over to help me.” He gestured towards Lightweight and Shortie.
“Whatever. Why didn’t you take me home?” He just shrugged and turned his attention to the tv. I shook my head, done with the conversation. I got up and walked into the kitchen to see what shortie was making me. I sat on the counter and swung my legs as he opened the fridge and took out stuff for a sandwhich.
“I like Mayo.” He looked up at me and sighed going back to grab it.
“Soo.. why the hell are you friends with him? He’s the biggest asswipe I’ve ever met.” I said as if it were plain of day. It kind of was I suppose. He just shrugged and kept on with what he was doing.
“We’ve been cool since ’08. He’s like my brother.” I kissed my teeth and asked another question.
“Can I know your name now?” His hands stopped moving as he thought about it, and nodded slowly.
“Bow.” I smiled. Finally. A break through.
“Kaimoni.” I said, with a smile.
“I know.” He said, chuckling and handing my sandwich. I took a huge bite out of it. I was fucking starving and exhausted.
“Thanks.” I mumbled in between bites.
After an hour of ignoring him, he announced he was about to be out. He looked at me and asked if I needed anything, but I ignored him like the other 900 times he spoke to me. He sighed exasperated and leaned over to kiss my cheek. I flinched away, but never took my eyes off the tv. I don’t see how he thought it was okay to act like shit didn’t happen. I was so angry. Lightweight left with him so it was just Bow and I. He was nice and all, but I was so pissed that I was there.
“Bow..” I said breaking the ice as I turned my body towards him. He looked up surprised but cautious.
“Could you take me home?” He chuckled and shook his head.
“Nahh. That’s between you and him. I’m not tryna get in this shit.”“Ugh!” I was so tired of this. I went back upstairs to the room I woke up in. I thought about all the shit he’d put me through. I thought about last night and today. All my anger, sadness, and disappointment bubbled up inside me ‘till I couldn’t take it anymore. I began to cry. It wasn’t a regular kind of cry either. My chest shook violently as I let out everything I’d been holding in. Water streamed down my face as I threw things across the room. It’d never hurt so bad. I knew Bow could hear me because he came up the stairs and heard me sobbing. He knocked on the door and tried to spit out kind words to make me stop crying, but I just couldn’t. I sat back down on the bed after knocking everything off the dresser and breaking the mirror. I layed on my side, staring at the wall, zoning out as my tears and sobbing slowly stopped. Last thing I remember was thinking about how over trustful I can be with people before drifting off into a deep sleep.
I felt heavy and weak. My chest felt like it was being pressed down a ton of weights. I swallowed hard, trying to bring myself back to reality. I tried with all of my might to open my eyes. Tired from my effort, I moved my head drifting back to sleep when I felt a warm hand rest on my arm. I suddenly remembered how fucked up I was after the bartender gave me the drink. He must have put some shit in there because I’ve never been so messed up before in my life. I kissed some guy and he must have taken me home. I couldn’t even remember his face. I was really starting to freak out. What if he had raped me? I can’t go through that again. I could feel my heart beating faster as I broke out into a cold sweat from panicking. The arm was now shaking me, but I passed out again.
This time, I woke up to a dark room. My throat was dry as hell and my chest ached. I noticed I was under a thick blanket on a bed. I swung my legs over the edge of the bed to get the hell out of there. I was only wearing panties and an oversized shirt. Oh my God. What if I had been raped again? The panick was coming back to me full throttle. I used all of my energy to heave myself off the bed. In the eerie silence of wherever I was it made a loud noise. I winced hoping that no one had heard that. I looked around the oddly clean room for my stuff. I walked over to the dresser to see my clutch resting on it. The room was so clean I couldn’t even tell if a guy or girl lived there. I quickly open my purse and grabbed my phone to call Olivia and see if she was okay. I pressed a button and nothing happened. I clicked fervently trying to make it light up. My phone was dead.
“Fuck..” I mumbled to myself as my breathing hitched up in tempo. I was really freaking out. Where the fuck am I and how the hell do I get home? I looked around the room again and saw no phone or my clothes. I grabbed my shoes and bag and tiptoed out of the room. The room led out into a long hallway with 5 doors that had locks on them that could only be opened my a key. Thank God mine was unlocked. I could hear a tv coming from down the stairs. There were two guys conversing loudly by the tv. I took a deep breath and peeked over the edge of the stairs down to where the noise was coming from. I saw a skinny light skinned nigga with tats and another dude that was short with green eyes. They didn’t look like trouble, but you never know nowadays. They were passing a blunt and laughing while watching Regular Time.
“Stfu lil nigga before I stomp you down closer to the ground.” The skinny nigga said, laughing and cheesing like an idiot.
“ Yeah that’s why you look like you haven’t eaten in years, lightweight.” The other one said, hitting the skinny on upside the head. I rolled my eyes at their blatant stupidity and crept down the stairs as slowly and silently as I could towards the back door that was just in sight. Once I got to the bottom of the staircase I let out the breath that I didn’t realize I was holding slowly. Without taking my eyes off of them I tiptoed to the door. Like a dumbass I dropped my shoe and then went on to trip over it. My eyes went flailing and I yelled out as I tried to regain my balance.
“D’fuck?” They both shouted and looked up at me. My eyes grew wide and I shot up, running towards the door. “Man go get her ass!” The short one yelled at lightweight. I swung the door open and squinted at the bright sun as I attempted to run down the sidewalk. I had no idea where the fuck I was going, but that wasn’t going to stop me. My chest ached as I pushed myself to run, not something I usually did. Lightweight was fast as hell and caught up to me in a minute. He grabbed my wrist and pulled me back towards. I started to scream really loud. That was when I noticed it was a nice ass neighborhood and that most likely no one would come help me. Why the hell would a kidnapper live in a nice ass neighborhood like this?
“Stop!” I shouted, hitting him with the heel of my shoes. He wouldn’t let go and kept telling me to stop moving. Fuck that! He grabbed me from behind so I used some move that a defense class taught me. I pushed back on him with all my weight and used the back of my leg to kick him in the balls. He groaned out in pain and dropped me. I turned around and kicked him again before punching him in the face, grabbing my shoes and began to run again. I ran down the block and turned left seeing stores off in the distance. I could hardly breath, but I kept on going until I ran into some sandwhich shop. I was out of breath, looked a hot mess, barefoot, and tired as hell. I limped over to an empty booth in the back by a window and sat down trying to catch my breath.
A waitress came up to me concerned, ”Do you need anything hun?” I probably look like a hooker. I shook my head lightly and smiled.
“No thank you.” She walked away not quite convinced. I instantly regretted my decision because 1. I’m thirsty as hell and 2. In walked short stuff and light weight. I ducked my head, but I definitely stood out because of my attire and hair. They walked over to me and slid in the seat across from me. Lightweight looked mad as hell, probably because I got away, but I had no intentions of going back with them. I just stared and mugged them. The intensity flowed between us and the waitress came back even more concerned than before.
“Coffee?” I nodded and she poured some in my cup and put the creamer beside me. I ignored them and myself a cup of coffee as she walked away. The short one spoke first.
“You need to come back with us.” Hell to the muh’fuckin’ no.
“No.” I sipped on my coffee and looked him dead in the eyes. The skinny nigga looked at his watch then back at the short one.
“We gotta go yo. He’s gonna be back soon. You know he’s gonna be mad that she left.” The short one nodded, took a deep breath and tried for a nicer tone.
“Could you please come back with us? We won’t hurt you.” I snorted, chuckling, and rolled my eyes.
“Please. Why the hell should I trust you? I woke up in a random ass home, with no close on, with two idiots watching me. Lightweight mugged me and got up leaving me and the short one.
“We won’t. I put that on my mom’s life.” He stated simply. I looked at him searching his face for the lie. All I saw was sincerity. Call me a dumb broad, but I actually believed him. My phone was dead, I had no clothes, and no fucking idea where I was. What did I have to lose? My life.
I finished up my coffee and set the cup down looking at him. “Who’s gonna be back soon and why would he be mad I left?” I asked him, wanting to get answers. He sighed looking guilty and shook his head slightly.
“I really can’t tell you ma.” I figured as much, but it was worth a try. Sighiing, I got up and followed him out to a black Lamborghini. All the windows were tinted, but I could see lightweight in the driver’s seat. He was still mad. Oh well. My face scrunched up in confusion as I slid into the backseat of the car and shortie in the passenger seat. They took me back to the crib that I had fought so hard to get out of back to him, whoever that might be.
We were all posted in different areas of the living room when I heard keys jingling outside the front door. For the past hour I had been asking them every question I could possibly think of. They were beyond annoyed with me, but if I had to be there, they had to put up with me. I repeatedly asked for names, but they would just pretend like they hadn’t heard me. I looked up, hugging the pillow closer to me, my captors sighed deeply with relieve. I wasn’t that bad, just curious. Lightweight got up to dap whoever was at the door and tell him how much of a pain I was. I sat up, alert, waiting for whatever bad was coming. He walked in and chuckled with much humor at how my face went through all the emotions I was feeling at the moment. My mouth hung open as he walked towards me.
