We went to my grannys house after a long day of running around.
My granny opened the door and Anirah flew into her arms.
"Oh Heyyyy pretty girl I missed you so much."
"I missed you to Nana whea you been?"
I laughed at how much she was starting to sound like me. I walked in and my grandma hugged me. "Hey son how you doin? You doin alright baby?"
"Yes ma'am I'm good."
My Granny was like a mother to me since my mom was never there. My dad would take us to his moms on the weekends and we would have the best times. She taught me a lot.
"Grams when you gone let me move you outta here. You know I don't like you livin here."
She kissed her dentures at me "Oh boy hush. You know I ain't goin nowhere. This the house I raised you ya brother and ya daddy in. I can handle myself Marcel. You know granny still stays strapped."
"Nana what's strapped mean?"
"Oh lord nothin' baby go eat your snack in the kitchen."
Anirah shrugged and walked into the kitchen. I went and sat next to Grams with my head in my hands.
"What's the matter boy." she said sternly.
I kept my voice low. "Anirah asked me to pull a job for her today Grams. On her daddy."
"Well why in the world would she do that? How does she even know that Marcel I told you not to put her around that." She always called me by my middle name or my street name. She said my mom picked the name Lucas and she hated it.
"I don't know Gram. She's pickin up a lot now maybe she overheard I don't know. I don't care. What I do know is that he's been raping her."
She gasped and sat back in her chair calmly shaking her head. "Well Marcel. You know what you gotta do. Just be smart and figure out how to do it seamlessly. You know we taught you to be a ghost out here. And you are the best at that baby. Just take your time and think it out. Just remember to move silently. Your brother told me you're getting messy out here. Tighten up boy and focus. You are better then messy Marcel."
I nodded my head. My Grandma had been a gangster herself. She was into just about everything until she retired out the game. She was wise. Like a sage. I knew she would tell me what to do.
"Go ahead and handle your business and she can stay with me until the morning." she got up slowly. That arthritis was getting to her.
"Okay Gram. I'll see you in the morning. I love you."
"I love you to Heartless."
I kissed her cheek and went to the car. I thought about calling 2shot to help me but that's not what I wanted. I wanted to kill this nigga with my bare hands.
I called Deanna instead.
D-Hey best friend what's going on? Is Anirah okay?
H- Yeah she's with Granny. Hey we need to talk right now. In person
D- Ok um. Taevon just stepped out to get us some food you can come over.
H- Arigh bet.
I hung up and sped to her house. Hearing his name made my skin crawl. I always hated the nigga because he treated Deanna like shit. Plus he was a bum that could never keep a job. Everything that Anirah and Deanna needed I supplied. But she love his dumbass so I keep my distance and hit him with the "Whaddup" head nod when I see him.
I pulled up and went inside. Me and Deanna had keys to each others places for emergency's and shit.
She was sitting on the couch.
"Hey what's goin on?"
I gave it to her straight. "Ya mans been raping Anirah. She asked me to off him."
She sat there in shock. "Why didn't she tell me? Why would she ask you to do that? How do you know for sure? Did it look like she was lying."
I got angry at this point. Why would you even ask that? "What the fuck you mean Deanna? You think she would just say some shit like that to say it!!! Plus go look at her panties!!! WHY WOULD THERE BE BLOOD IN HER PANTIES DEANNA!"
My blood was boiling. How dare she question that baby like that. For a nigga? Really?
"I THOUGHT SHE WAS WIPING TO HARD. STOP FUCKIN YELLIN AT ME HEARTLESS. GEEZ."
She pulled her knees to her chest and started crying. Fuck. I was a sucker for Deannas' tears. She was the only person beside Anirah that got to me when they cried.
I sat next to her and put my arms around her. "Okay okay I'm sorry just stop cryin please. Deanna you know I don't wanna hurt you but I gotta do this. When Nugget calls I come runnin. And ain't nobody gone hurt you or her. I'd die for y'all and you know that."
"But why would he do that? That's his daughter. I don't know just let me talk to him."
"No D. Ain't no talkin. I'm about to off this niggas top. I know you love him but you'll get over it I swear. Is your love for him more then it is for Anirah?"
"Everybody is not like you Heartless."
She looked at me and I was instantly disgusted. "Are you fuckin kidding me?"
"Heartless don't act like that okay. You don't know. YOU DON'T FUCKIN KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO BE A PARENT!!! You don't even feel emotion enough to be one nigga. It's hard as shit. And now you trying to make me a single mother too? Nah. Hell naw. I'd give up Anirah before I let my life go to waste."
I shook my head. I couldn't believe this shit. Did she really just say that.
I ran my fingers over my braids. I couldn't believe what I was about to say. There was a long pause.
"If it's like that then I'll keep her."
She looked at me and stood up in my face. "No the fuck you not. I refuse to let her live the life you and your family live. You got me fucked up."
"What the fuck do you mean Deanna you don't even want her. YOU THINK IMA JUST BRING HER BACK AND LET HER GET RAPED SO SHE CAN BE SCARRED FOR THE REST OF HER LIFE? NO NOT GONE HAPPEN. SHE STAYIN WITH ME."
"OVER MY DEAD FUCKIN BODY HEARTLESS!"
I pulled my gun out and put it to her stomach. "It can be arranged Deanna."
She stared at me. Cold. "How dare you pull a gun on me. Have you lost yo damn mind. After all we been through." she pushed me.
I put my gun away and stepped back to her face. "If you not gone make sure shes safe then I will. And if you come for her you won't ever be seen again. Fuck you and that pervert ass nigga you call ya mans."
I turned and walked out of the apartment slamming the door. Taevon was coming in. I probably should have resisted but I couldn't. I turned to him and punched him in his jaw. He dropped the food and fell to the ground. "Ahh what the fuck is w-" I continued beating him senselessly.
"Dont you EVER. PUT YOU HANDS... ON HER. AGAIN!" I yelled at him between punches. I threw him to the ground and kicked him in the face.
"Shit. Got my white Tims all bloody muthafucka." Deanna came running to his aid and I left. Even though it felt good to beat his ass I was still hurting for lil mama. I'm gonna protect even if I gotta die about it.
Wooooo. Dramaaaa for yo mommaa
I hope you're enjoying this short. Its almost over to be honest.
