Chapter 41

3.5K 43 6

I'm not as close to Blake as I am to DJ, so we're going out to lunch - just the two of us. I wanted to ask him about some things, so now would be the perfect time.

"Hey Monique," I heard a deep voice say.

I looked up to see Blake sitting in front of me.


"What's up?" he asked snatching my phone out of my hand.

"I should be asking you that," I said snatching it back.

"What do you mean?"

"I heard you have a little one. Congratulations."

"Thanks." He didn't sound too thrilled.

"Does Bri know?" I asked.

"Yeah. She actually asked me about it."

"What'd she say?" I asked really interested.

"She didn't really say anything. She didn't even seem bothered. You know her better than I do, what's that about?"

I felt bad because I was actually laughing on the inside. Poor thing sounded so confused.

"First, she really loves kids; she's got a soft spot for them. Second, she's not a judgmental person, so she probably doesn't care; just as long as you take care of him, she's cool," I explained.

I watched as the muscles in his face relaxed and he looked more calm.

He let out a huge sigh, "cool."

The waiter brought out our food and we continued talking.

"So uh, when are you gonna tell Briana you have a girlfriend?" I asked with a somewhat devious smile.

"How the hell do you know about that?"

"DJ told me. And you found one pretty fast considering you just slept with Bri five weeks ago. What's the girl's name?"


"Ew. When do we get to meet her?" I asked.

"When the time is right," he said looking down.

"Back to my original question, when are you gonna tell Briana?"

"I don't know," he said.

"You do plan on telling her though, right?"

"Yeah. I just don't know how or when."

"Do it today to get it over with. And if you want, I'll be there with you when you tell her," I said.

"Okay. I just don't want her to be upset."

"I don't think she'll be upset. I mean, she knew you would eventually get a girlfriend."

"I guess you're right."

We finished eating and went back to his house. As soon as we got in, I called Briana.

Bri: Hello?
Me: Hey, you busy?
Bri: Nah

"Call her now," I whispered to Blake.

Me: Okay bye
Bri: Bye?

I sat next to Blake on the couch while he nervously waited for Briana to answer his call.


When Briana's face popped up on the screen, I couldn't tell if she was mad or confused.

"What's up?"

"Is Monique with you?" she asked.

I chuckled a little, "yeah."

"You two are spending time together?" She sounded shocked.

"Yes, we are!" Monique interjected.

"That's what I like to see!" she said smiling, "so what's up?"

"Um I have to tell you something."

"What is it?" she sighed.

I uh, I have a girlfriend," I said struggling to get it out.

She didn't say anything for a while so I assumed she was upset.

"That's great! What's her name?"

"U-Uh Alana."

"Ew. Has anyone met her yet?" she asked.

"No!" Monique screamed in my ear causing Briana to laugh.

"Well when I come back, I wanna meet her," Briana said.

"Oooh, when are you coming back?" Monique asked.

"Soon, but I gotta go to work, so I'll talk to y'all later," she said.

The call ended and Monique was in my face grinning hard.


"I told you she wouldn't be upset."

I was glad Briana wasn't mad, but a small part of me was hoping she would be because my feelings for her haven't changed.
