Ace sat back down and looked at me curiously waiting for me to speak up. I couldn't stress how nervous I was. The more and more Ace looked at me the more it was harder to talk to him , fuck it here goes nothing.
''Alright now baby talk to me.''Ace said
''Well baby to answer your question no I'm not pregnant.''
He nodded ''Okay so what is it then?''He said laughing a little bit.
''It's about my job, me and the other owner decided to open up another store in New Orleans.''I said rubbing my hands together.
''Okay that's what's up, I'm proud of you shorty.''He said nodding his head.
''That's not all Ace.''I said bitting my bottom lip. ''I would have to move out there for a while to manage my business.''I said already feeling horrible.
''For how long Alexis?''Ace said standing up and I could tell he was mad already.
''I don't know, a couple of months maybe.''I said shrugging my shoulders.
''What the fuck you mean you don't know Alexis? What kinda shit is that?''He said giving me the meanest glare ever, I just wanted him to calm down some.
''Ace I don't know maybe 8 to 9 months, but we can fly back and forth to see each other.''I said grabbing his hand but he jacked away from me.
He chuckled. ''WOW, Alexis how long you've been knowing about this shit?''He said looking at me still with the look I hated.
''Not that long baby, see this is why I didn't want to tell you because of shit like this . '' I said shaking my head .
''So what you saying I'm overreacting? You telling me you leaving and I'm just suppose to be happy for you? Nah fuck that. I don't know if I can do a long distance relationship.''
''Yes Ace I knew you would be mad, but I also thought you would be supportive of your girl, but I guess I was wrong.''
''Alexis you know I love you, but I don't know about this shit for real man. This is some foul ass shit. You suppose to be my girl, we suppose to be in a relationship don't that count for anything?''He said. I honestly just felt like he was thinking about hisself and not me. I wanted us to work, I wanna be with him for the rest of my life, but damn can't I be happy too? Can't I make my own choices and you support me? Relationships are about give and take.
I smacked my lips. ''I thought we were Ace, but now I don't know. I won't put my dreams on the back burner for no one and if you can't understand that then I don't know.''I said shrugging my shoulders. I wasn't trying to be a bitch, but this is my reality.
''So, you basically saying fuck me right?''he said walking closer to me.
''Ace what do you want me to do?''I said rubbing my forehead. This was all too much for me.
''I want you to leave.''he said looking me in my eyes with a blank stare.
''Are you serious right now ace?''I said looking right back in his eyes.
''Do you see me fucking laughing B? STEP.''he said raising his voice.
I shook my head as a tear rolled down my face.
