Chapter 158

While I was asleep, I felt someone, hopefully Blake, kissing on my neck. I opened one eye, and there he was, kissing me.

"Uh, what are you doing?" I asked sleepily.

He moved the strap of my tank top to the side and kissed my shoulder. "Waiting for you to get up."

I opened my other eye and raised my eyebrow.

"What do you want?" I asked.

"I need to get it in before practice."

He kissed down my chest and body until he was under the covers. I got my phone off the nightstand to check the time, and it was 6:45 in the morning. He doesn't have practice for a couple more hours, so what the hell is he talking about?

Before I could ask him what he was up to, I felt my underwear being pulled down my legs, followed by Blake's lips on my most sensitive area.


I was abruptly cut off by Blake shoving his tongue inside me. I have no idea why he's so horny at nearly seven o'clock in the morning but at this point, I don't even care.


"You mind telling me what that was about earlier?"

After we had sex, I took a shower, and we ended up having sex again.

"We haven't had sex in months," he said as he watched me put on my bra & underwear.

I furrowed my eyebrows and chuckled. "Boy, we had sex the other day."

He tilted his head to the side, making me laugh a little harder at his facial expression.

"We did?"

"Yes, babe."

He shrugged and wrapped his arms around my waist. "Well it felt like months."

I shook my head at him and rolled my eyes. As much as I would love to just sit here with my husband all day, we both had things to do.

I reluctantly slipped out of his arms so I could get dressed. I put on gray sweatpants, a plain white, and my shell toe Adidas. After I got dressed, I went to get the kids ready for today. When I was done, I carried Brielle with me to the bedroom.

"I was thinking I could take KJ to daycare and you to work. Then when I get out of practice, I'll pick y'all up and we can go to lunch or something," Blake said, taking Brielle from me.

"Okay. That's sounds good."

I got Brielle's diaper bag, and we all left the house to get our days started.



After I got out of practice, I went by Starbucks because I was supposed to be meeting someone there before I go pick up Bri.

I walked into the building, and there she was, sitting at a table by the window. When she saw me, she smiled and I sighed.

"What do you want, Jade?" I asked, sitting across from her.

Her smiled quickly disappeared and she shrunk down in her seat. "You never answer my calls anymore. I thought something was wrong."

I furrowed my eyebrows and sat back in the chair. "Because we have no reason to talk anymore. I appreciate you helping me, but you need to stop calling me ─ especially at three o'clock in the morning. You're pissing off my wife."

She became visibly pissed when I mentioned Briana, but I don't know why. She knew I was married, so I don't know what she thought was gonna happen between us.

"I just want to make sure everything is in place for her," she cringed, putting her hand on top of mine.

"And it will be," I said, moving my hand away from hers, "just ─"


I turned around, and my heart damn near jumped out of my chest when I saw Jordan & Deshawn.

"What are you doing here?" I asked, "I thought you had a class to teach."

"I did but after it ended, I stayed with Bri because I didn't wanna leave her & Brielle alone. She assured me she'd be okay though because you were supposed to pick them up," Jordan said, matter-of-factly, "what are you doing here with that?"

"It's not what you think," I said, "this is the woman that was helping me with my surprise for Bri."

Jordan & Deshawn both nodded while Jordan glared at Jade. I now see why she, Monique & Briana are friends. They're so shady.

"Well, you should probably go get your wife & daughter," Jordan said as she continued to glare at Jade.

I got up from the table, but I felt Jade grab my hand.

"Wait, Blake, we weren't finished." She seemed aggravated, and it was starting to piss me off.

"I already told you we have nothing else to talk about," I said.

"And if you wanna keep that hand, you better get it off my friend's husband," Jordan spat.

Jade quickly moved her hand, and I left so I could pick up the boys & Bri. When I got to the studio, she was sitting in the middle of the floor, talking to Brielle.

"Where is your daddy?" she asked, sounding a little frustrated and a little upset.

"I'm right here."

She turned around and smiled, then stood up off the ground. I took Brielle, and she leaned up to to peck my lips.

"What took you so long?" she asked with a innocent facial expression.

"The lady at the daycare was telling me why the boys were in timeout today."

Technically, I didn't lie because that really did happen. I just couldn't tell her about me meeting with Jade.

"Why were they in timeout?"

"Apparently, they wouldn't go to sleep at nap time," I shrugged.

She got Brielle's bag off the floor and furrowed her eyebrows. "That's a dumb ass reason to - never mind. Let's go."

We left the studio and went to lunch as planned. Honestly, I can't wait until all this mess is over so I can stop lying to Bri & sneaking around.


what do y'all think the surprise is?
