"What's going on in here?"

When I walked into the kitchen, Jake was on the ground holding his jaw, and Briana was standing over him like she wanted to kill him.

"He just kissed me!" Briana yelled.

"Blake, she's lying. She came on to me, and then she hit me as soon as she saw you coming."

I raised an eyebrow at the bold ass lie that just came out of his mouth. He really expects me to believe my wife, who hates him, would kiss him?

"You lying sack of shit! I will fucking mur-

"Babe, calm down," I said, stopping her from lunging at him.

"No, Blake. I'm sick of this ugly ass troll constantly starting shit."

She tried lunging at him again, but I grabbed her arm to stop her.

"Blake, you should really put your wife in her place," Jake said, standing up.

I didn't think it was possible for Bri to get any angrier than she was, but I was wrong. She lunged at Jake, and I didn't even try to stop her because he deserves everything he's about to get.

All I saw was Briana's arms flailing and her fists flying at Jake's face. I started laughing because the look on his face was so pathetic.

I sat down at the island, as if nothing were happening until DJ walked in, confused as hell.

"What the hell is going on?" he asked.

"Jake's just getting what Briana owes him," I said casually, "you want something to drink?"

"Sure," he nodded, sitting in the chair next to me.

I got him a bottle of water, sat back down and we just held a casual conversation.

"I think Bri's about to crack his skull open," DJ said, nodding in her direction.

I looked down at the floor and waited a minute before I pulled Briana off of Jake. She moved some stray hair out of her face, straightened out her clothes, then looked at me and smiled proudly.

"You good?" I chuckled.

"I'm good."

I kissed her forehead, then looked down at her bloody knuckles, "why don't you go clean up your hand, and I'll be up in a minute."

She nodded, still smiling proudly, and gave DJ a high five before she disappeared upstairs.

I knelt down next to Jake, who was wincing in pain with a busted lip, and sighed.

"Wait, Blake, before you kick me out, let me explain," he said.

"Explain what?" I asked, "explain what your problem is with my wife? Or explain why you kissed her? You should be lucky I don't beat your ass for that by the way."

"Both."

I stood up and let him get up, then waited for some bullshit explanation.

"Can you call Briana down here?" he asked.

"No." I crossed my arms over my chest, "whatever you need to say, you can say to me."

He nodded, "well the reason I always talked so much about Briana was because you were the only single friend I had left and as soon as you started dating her, you changed. But then when I met her, I fell for her. I like her fiery personality and she's so damn se-"

"You better not finish that sentence," I warned.

He nodded, and neither of us said a word. I mean, what the hell am I supposed to say to someone who just admitted they had feelings for my wife?

"Well," I said, clapping my hands together, "I think you better leave."

"Are you serious?"

DJ & I gave each other the same look before we both looked back at him.

"Hell yeah, I'm serious. I let you get away with talking about Briana this long, but I'm not puttin' up with this shit anymore. And now that I know you have these feelings for her, I don't want you around her."

"So this is what's gonna happen," I continued, "just stay away from us, mainly Briana, and we won't have anymore problems. If you come anywhere near her, I swear to God I will break your neck. Now get out of my house."

I asked DJ to make sure Jake was gone while I went upstairs to check on Briana. I walked in the bedroom, and she was just lying on the bed with Brielle.

"What happened?" she asked, sitting up.

"Well, I let him explain why he's such a dick."

I lied on the bed with them, kissed Brielle's forehead and watched her smile.

"And what'd he say?"

I told her everything he said, and she just looked at me like she was about to throw up.

"That is the most repulsive thing I have ever heard," she said, "please tell me you're lying?"

I shook my head and continued to laugh at her facial expression.

"So does this mean we don't have to worry about him anymore?" she asked.

"Yep."

"Thank God!" she grinned, "wait...he's not crazy, is he? Like, he won't come back here tryna kill one of us, will he?"

I thought about it for a second, to be funny, then laughed it off.

"Nah...I don't think he is."

She looked at me skeptically then shrugged, "whatever. I'm just glad we're done with him. I love you."

"I love you more."

She rolled her eyes, and I leaned forward to kiss her.

"Alright," she said, pushing my face away, "that's enough of that mushy bullshit."

I smiled at her, then picked Brielle up, and we went outside with everyone else.
