The next morning, after my shower, I needed to call Marissa to check up on her. I was pacing down the steps when I heard a phone ringing. Marissa wasn't picking up her phone. I found someone sitting up on the couch rubbing their eyes.

"What are you doing here?" I asked Marissa, hanging up my phone.

"Good morning." She innocently shrugged with a smile.

My arms crossed with disappointment and some happiness.

"What are you doing here?" A smile broke free on my face. Hers grew bigger. I waved my hand wanting her to explain her ubiety.

"I missed yooou." She sang, making me blush. "I win." She dusted her shoulders.

"Win what?"

"I can make you break." She rocked back and forth with her hand planted on the couch.

"Do you always wake up this cute in the morning?" I sat on the couch. Her shocked reaction turned into a familiar giggle. "Uh huh."

"You made me smile, but that doesn't mean you won." She tucked away her hair.

"I disagree."

"Whatever." She rolled her eyes.

"Why didn't you come to my room?" I joked.

"You would have got mad at me."

"Nuh uh."

"You like my bed. You should have slept there instead of this couch." My smirk cracked free.

"Stop being fresh." She pointed. I pulled my lips into my mouth. "My dad and I got into a bad argument once you left. I didn't want to walk to Ian's house, so I came here."

"You walked in the rain?"

"It was just sprinkling then." She shrugged. I heard the front door open and looked over my shoulder.

"Where's... August?" A worn out Adrian came through the door.

"Do you got it?" I asked. It was no point of him coming through the door if he didn't. He quickly nodded, out of breath. "Adrian, this is my girl Marissa." I introduced.

"Hi." She leaned forward, making sure he saw her and waved.

"Hello." He kicked off his shoes.

"I'll be right back." I jumped up. "Call your dad and tell him you're with me." I told Marissa before grabbing Adrian and leading him upstairs.

"Kay." Her curious eyes followed us.

"You got the money?"

"I have 2,500." He stated, opening his jacket.

"Nooo Adrian. You need 500 more." I turned him around pushing him on. "Go get it."

"Jason, c'mon man. Give me 5. You know I'm good for it."

"Fuck man." I went down the hall, into the closet in my room. I grabbed a box from the top. "You never saw this box." I held it in my arm. Adrian nodded. I opened it and grabbed a wad of bills. Counting out 500 in my head and putting the rest back. "Here." I grabbed his hand and smacked the cash into it.

"Damn yo!" He grimaced.

"Where'd you get the money Adrian?"

"From you."

"Not this money dumbass. The other 2500."

"I sold the rest of my stash."

"In one night?"
