I woke up to the smell of food, instantly making me run to the toilet to empty my stomach.
Maleek must have left " I thought to myself as I rinsed my mouth.
I turned to exit out the bathroom but came in contact with someone . I looked up to see Maleek .
"You're still here, what time is it " I panicked.
"Chill, I was in the kitchen with your mom and its 8 o'clock sleepy head" he said.
My mom? Shit.
"Com'on" he grabbed my hand .
I let go instantly,earning a look from him.
He continued on and sat down at our kitchen table.
"You're finally up Mija ," my mom said placing the food on the table .
What the hell is going on. The mom I knew would have been down my throat right now for having a man at the house without her present. Hell, he was in my bed.
"Dinners almost ready , I asked Maleek to stay. I hope that's ok " she asked as she continued to place the food down.
"Uhm, sure ." I said glancing at him.
We all sit down to eat . There was an awkward silence between us all.
"Maleek, was telling me how excited he was for the new addition" my mom spoke up breaking the silence.
I looked at him .
"Yeah, I can't wait till have a mini me around. I'm a bit nervous , but I'll manage" he said respectfully to my mother.
She smiled before speaking.
"I'll admit that I was a bit pissed when Ori told me the news , but I see you got a good head on your shoulders" my mom said.
"You know , I try" he responded popping his imaginary collar.
"Boy please " my mom laughed.
I was now really curious as to what happened between the two while I was asleep because they sure did seem to be getting along just fine .
At least I didn't have to worry about any drama between the two I thought to myself.
We had all made small talk as we ate. It was good that Maleek and my mom got along, I wouldn't want it any other way.
Soon, we had all finish eating and began to gather our plates.
"You two got the dishes, I cooked" my mom said walking out the kitchen causing me and Maleek to chuckle.
We both began to wash the dishes and then dry them. It was an awkward silence so I decided to speak up.
"So... What happened between you and my mom" I asked.
He laughed before speaking.
"We just talked about some things" he said
"Maleek" I said irritably .
"Alright alright. You was sleep , and I was up on my phone . Next thing you know your momma come up in the room. She saw how you was all up on as nigga and-"
I looked down and blushed.
"Now I know miss Ori ain't over here blushin'" he said discontinuing his story.
"Just finish the story " I said quietly.
He laughed before speaking. " anyways , like I said , you was all up on a nigga and you could tell she was ready to beat my ass when she saw me" I said.
Now that's more like her.
"But just know we on good terms, no need for details "he said.
We finished up the dishes , while joking with each other.
We dried our hands and went to go sit down. It was awkward silence before he spoke up .
"Move in with me" he said.
I started laughing, but looked up to see that he was serious..
"I'm Foreal Ori" he said.
"Maleek , we've only known each other for about 2 months now" I said.
"Look around Ori , this isn't the best neighborhood and I don't want my child in any type of danger. Not to mention I live almost 45 minutes away. What if something happens to you" he said.
It warmed me that he was concerned about the safety of me and his child , but I couldn't just up an move. Especially without my mother.
"I'm just trying to do the right thing Ori " he said.
"I'll think about it " I said causing a smile to grow on his face.
"Aight, imma Remember that baby mama. " he said.
I laughed at that,
"Go on, boy " I laughed pushing his chest slightly.
He grabbed my arm and pulled me toward him. Instantly making me go weak in the knees.
He stared at me before pulling me into a hug.
"Imma head out, "he said letting me go .
"Alright." I said still a little bit weak from being in his arm.
"I'll be here at 1:30 to pick you up, for the appointment "he said before walking out.
I looked down and blushed.
"Yall are so cute" my mom said pulling me out my daze.
"Mom, stop . We're not together" I said causing my mom to smirk.
"You will be ".
