"Welcome home!!!"

I walked in and saw all of my family and friends chillin' in the house. A big smile spread across my face because I haven't seen this side of my family all together in a while.

I saw my friends Jana & Carmen talking to my cousin Tiffany, so I walked over and talked to them.

"Hey whores," I said.

"Hey!" they all said together.

"We've missed you hoe! Don't leave us like that again!" Carmen yelled.

"So did you have fun?" Tiffany asked.

"Yeah."

"I would have fun too if I were hangin' out with Blake Griffin," Jana said with a smirk.

I looked around and they were all staring at me smiling.

"I don't wanna talk about this," I said smiling.

My phone vibrated and I pulled it out of my pocket. It was a text from Blake.

"Is that your boo?" Carmen asked.

"Stop," I laughed a little, "and if you must know, yeah it's him."

I looked at the message and it was a picture of Monique and DJ on the couch with his arm around her. They looked so sad. The message said:

blake 😏: look what you did to them
me: aw it's not healthy to be that upset. yall should go do something.

I put my phone back in my pocket and continued talking to the girls.

"Does your boo miss you?" Carmen asked.

"Stop calling him that," I laughed.

A small part of me hated the fact that they knew about me and Blake. Not because I was ashamed or embarrassed, but they will probably never leave me alone and I'm afraid someone's gonna fuck up and tell.

Blake*|
"Come on guys, let's go get something to eat," I said grabbing my keys off the table. I just really needed to get them out of here, especially Monique.

"Alright," DJ said standing up.

"Okay. Just let me tell Troy I'm going," Monique said pulling her phone out.

Before she could unlock her phone, DJ snatched it and put it his pocket.

"Forget about him; let's go!"

She shrugged and we left.

DJ*|
"DJ, can I please have my phone back?" Monique asked holding her hand out.

I waited until the waiter left before I said anything.

"Why?" I asked.

"I need to see if Troy-"

"I'm sorry, but why do you let him control you like that?" Blake interrupted.

"Yeah, why are you still with him? Why won't you just leave him? You're too good for him."

"I can't leave him," she said quietly.

"Why though?" I asked a little annoyed.

She paused a little before answering, "he said if I ever even thought about leaving him, he would hurt the person that means the most to me."

"And who is that?"

She looked up at Blake with tears in her eyes, "Briana."

Blake's eye got wide and his fist was balled up.

"What?!"

"He knows she's the closest thing I have to family, so he said if I tried to leave him he'd kill her. And I know he'll do it."

This was all too much for me to take in. I reached in my pocket to get her phone, but before I could hand it to her Troy came storming in the restaurant.

"Shit!" she mumbled. She looked so scared.

"Monique! What the fuck are you doin here?! I've been calling you; why didn't you pick up?!"

"I'm sorry ba-"

"Shut up! Let's go!"

He grabbed her arm and yanked her out of her seat. I couldn't just sit there an allow this to happen, but I didn't know what to do.

"Listen man, there's no need f-"

"Fuck you! This is between me and her!"

I stepped toward him, but Monique put her free hand on my chest to stop me.

"No DJ, it's okay," she said crying a little.

He dragged her out of the restaurant, they got in his car and left. Briana told me to protect Monique while she was gone, but I don't see how I can when she won't let me. I just sighed and sat back in my seat.

Damn.
