Tonight is the Clippers' season opener, so we're waiting for Lupe to get here so we can leave. As we waited, Blake & I started having a staring contest to kill time.

"Why are you staring at me like that?" he asked.

"I thought we were having a staring contest," I said, although it sounded like a question.

He chuckled, "no...we weren't. I was talking to you, but you zoned out."

Wow. I am slow as fuck.

"Oh. Well, what were you saying?"

"I said you look good today."

I looked down at my outfit and scrunched up my face. I had on a plain white shirt, dark jeans, and red & white Jordan 10s. I look so basic; what the hell is he talking about?

"I look so damn plain," I said, laughing a little, "what are you talking about?"

"Shut up. You look good," he said as his eyes scanned over my body, "by the way, have I ever told you how sexy you look when you wear your nose ring?"

What has gotten into him? I always thought he hated my nose piercing, and that's why I stopped wearing it. Now he's telling me I look good on an off day and that I look "sexy" with my nose ring? He's up to something.

"Blake, what do you want?"

"What? I can't just compliment my wife?" he smirked, standing in between my legs.

He leaned down to kiss me while resting his hands on my thighs, and I know exactly what that means. Luckily, I heard the front door open, which meant Lupe was here, and it was time for us to go.

✧✧✧✧

We made sure to get to Staples Center early because I had to meet the winners of that "contest" I had a few months ago. I told them they'd be able to meet Blake and few other guys before the game, so now I'm just waiting for them to get here.

"So what kinda contest was this exactly?" Blake asked.

"It wasn't really a contest. I just asked a question on twitter, and the first five people to get it right got tickets."

He nodded.

"And when they ask for a picture, make sure you smile because I hate when you don't smile in pictures with fans," I continued.

He chuckled and kissed my forehead, "yes ma'am."

I rolled my eyes playfully, then turned around and saw a group of people walking toward us. They looked so excited.

The winners - Savanna, Toree, Victoria, Tawnya & Amira - introduced themselves and their friends, and Blake & I introduced ourselves. Blake showed them around, then introduced them to the rest of the team.

After all that, we went to find our seats so the guys could get ready.

"Good luck, Uncle Blake," KJ said, giving him a high five.

"Thanks, buddy." He sat in the seat next to me and put his arm around my shoulders, "where's my good luck kiss?" he asked me.

I looked in his face and I tried to keep a straight face, but I couldn't. I ended up smiling and gave him a peck on the lips.

"Y'all are cute," Victoria said.

"I know, right?" Blake said, "I try to tell her how cute we are, but she doesn't listen."

I laughed and shook my head, "okay, it's time for you to go."

Everyone, including Blake, laughed then he kissed me and went out on the court with the rest of the team for shoot around.

✧✧✧✧

It was the fourth quarter with two minutes left, and OKC was in the lead, 97-94. This game has been intense from the minute it started, and Tawnya's commentary only made it better.

However, my good time came to a screeching halt when I got that feeling in my stomach. Not even two seconds later, I got a call from Lupe.

'H-'

Lupe: ¡Señora, hay una señora loca en la casa! ¡Ella trató de lastimar al bebé!

I immediately panicked, and my mind went blank. I wanted to throw up when when I heard that.

'¡Estoy en camino!'

I hung up and shoved my phone back in my pocket.

"Bri, what's wrong?" Monique asked.

"Lupe said something's wrong with Brielle; I gotta go."

I told KJ to stay with Monique, and I waited until Blake stopped looking at me then rushed out of the building. I sped to the house, and there were some cop cars outside of the house.

I walked inside and went upstairs, and there were a few cops along with Lupe, who was holding Brielle, and a translator standing in the hallway.

"Lupe, what happened?" I asked frantically as she gave Brielle to me.

I looked over her face and body to make sure she was okay as I waited for her to answer me.

"Mrs. Griffin," one of the officers started, "according to Ms. Cardenas, a woman broke into your home and tried to smother your baby. When Ms. Cardenas went to check on the baby, the woman was standing over the crib, and Ms. Cardenas struck her with this bat."

Damn, Lupe.

"Lo siento, Señora," Lupe cried.

I pulled her into a hug and rubbed her back to calm her down. "No llores. Está bien."

I looked back at the officer, wanting to know where the bitch that tried to kill my child was.

"Is she still in there?" I asked.

"Yes ma'am."

I nodded, gave Brielle back to Lupe, then walked into the nursery. When I saw that bitch sitting in the corner, my whole body got hot and my heart felt like it was beating a thousand miles a minute.

"Do you know this woman, ma'am?" the officer asked when he saw how pissed I was.

"Hell yeah!"

I looked back at Alana, and she looked scared, and she should be. I was never really worried about her before because it was only me that she was coming for. Now that she's messed with my child, it's a completely different story.
