Briana*|
Today was my last day here and I was getting ready for this last show. It was still early, so I just walked around in basketball shorts and a sports bra. I walked upstairs to the room Monique was sleeping in. After I got home from Blake's house, she came over because her and Troy got in a fight. I wish she would just leave his ass.

"Nique, get up," I said shaking her a little.

She got up and walked to the bathroom. I was still sitting on the bed when she walked out. She was wearing a sports bra and shorts and that's when I noticed a bruise on her shoulder. She turned around and she had the nastiest bruise on her back.

"Oh my god Monique! What's with that big ass bruise on your back?! Did Troy do this?!" I asked scared of what she might say.

"Yeah, but I just need to stop pissin' him off," she said holding her head down.

It is way too early for me to be this pissed off.

"No fuck that Monique! This isn't your fault! If he gets that angry tell him to go get a fucking punching bag or something!"

I got off the bed and walked down to my room to put on a shirt and shoes. I heard Monique running after me.

"Briana, where are you going?"

"I'm gonna go talk to your fuck ass boyfriend," I said angrily.

"No you can't! Don't worry, I'll handle it," she said.

"You better. Cuz if you don't I will."

I went back in my room and tried to calm down. After I calmed down, I walked out of my room.

"You ready?" she asked.

"Yeah."

She insisted on driving, so we got in her car and went to the performing center. When we got inside, we went on the stage to run through our steps. Some people started to show up, so we stopped so we could get dressed in our outfits for the show. I looked behind the curtain to see if Blake was there yet, and he was. I got in my place and waited for the curtain to go up.

The curtain went up and the music started.

After the show, Blake, Monique, DJ and I stood around and talked for a while. We were interrupted by Troy coming over to talk to Monique.

"Hey babe," he said kissing her cheek, "you did good up there."

It took every ounce of me not to jump him.

"Thanks," she said obviously uncomfortable.

I balled up my fist and I was giving him the most evil glare. If looks could kill, he'd be dead. I guess Blake and DJ noticed something was wrong because they pulled me to the side.

"Why do you look so mad? What's wrong?" Blake asked.

"He's hitting her!" I said quietly but loud enough for them to hear me.

"What?!" DJ said defensively.

He started walking toward them, but I pulled his arm to stop him.

"No, DJ you can't say anything. I've already tried; she said she'll handle it."

We went back over to Monique and we all walked outside.

"Alright let's go, I need to take a shower!" I said to Monique.

"Aren't you hangin' out with Blake today?"

"Yeah, but I would like to be clean before we hang out," I said looking at her weird.

"You can take a shower at my house," Blake said.

"I don't have any clothes at your house."

"Yes you do, remember?"

Before I could answer, Monique chimed in.

"There ya go! You can go with him and take a shower over there!"

She had a big grin on her face. I looked at them both.

"Yall are weird," I said.

We got in Blake's car and drove off.

As soon as we got to his house, I took a shower. When I got out, I put on jean shorts and a black v-neck. I walked downstairs and saw Blake sitting on the couch watching tv. I went over and plopped next to him.

"So what are we gonna do tonight?" I asked.

"I was thinking we could just chill here and then later order Chinese."

"That's cool because I'm pretty tired right now."

I lied across his lap and watched tv. I don't know why I was so tired today, but I soon felt myself falling asleep.

Blake*|
While Briana was sleeping, I went upstairs to go change. When I came back down, she was up.

"Hey, you ready to eat?" I asked.

"Yeah."

"You wanna go with me to pick it up?"

"I don't know if that's a two person job but okay," she said getting off the couch.

She went upstairs to get her shoes, then came back down. We went to the car and drove to her house.

"What are we doing here?" she asked with a confused look on her face.

"You'll see."

We got out and walked in the house.

"Surprise!"
