I'm officially moved in! All my stuff got here yesterday but I'm just too lazy to unpack it. I have plenty of time to do that, right now I wanna go see Monique. It's 1 o'clock, so she should be home. I walked to her house and saw that she was home, so I just walked in. I sat on her couch because I knew she'd get scared when she came out of her room. I heard her come out, so I turned around and greeted her.

"Hey Nique," I said then turned back around.

"Hey B- OH MY GOD! WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING HERE?!" she screamed running over to the couch.

"You wouldn't believe me if I told you," I said.

"Tell me!"

"I just moved out here."

"Briana, don't play with me. Are you serious?"

"Dead ass."

She jumped on me and gave me a hug, then screamed in my ear.

"I'm going to DJ's house later, but right now we have to go tell Tyreke and Tyrell you're here! Come on!"

She grabbed my arm and ran to her car.

"Monique, what happened to Troy? Did he die or something because you're really happy these days?" I asked.

She laughed a little, "he's been out of town the last two weeks and for the first time in a while I feel safe at home."

"That's good!"

We pulled up to their house and I was a little hesitant getting out because I haven't seen them since last year. Monique knocked and when the door opened Tyreke answered or at least I think it was him.

"Hey Mo, what's up?" he said.

Me and Monique looked at each other and kinda laughed.

"So he gon' act like he don't see me standin' here," I said to her, "I mean I know we haven't seen each other in a while, but damn."

"Tyreke, how you just gonna ignore Briana like that?" Monique laughed.

"Oh shit Bri, my bad! What's up!" he said pulling me into a hug and then pulling me in the house.

"Nothin' much. Where's your brother?"

"In his room. Tyrell, your girlfriend's here!" he yelled.

He walked out of his room and said hi to Monique. I lifted my head and stood up so he could see my face and I swear he almost spazzed the fuck out.


He pulled me into a hug so tight, I lost my breath. His hand moved down from my back to my ass.

"I see you haven't changed at all," I said moving his hand.

He sat down and pulled me onto his lap.

"So what are you doing here?" Tyrell asked.

"I just moved out here."

"For real?!" he asked yelling in my ear.

"Yeah," I laughed.

He gave me another tight ass hug from behind which made me believe he was really happy.

We hung out with them for about two hours, then Monique got a text from DJ saying they're out of practice.

"We gotta go, but we'll see y'all later," Monique said walking out.

"Bye y'all," I said walking to the car.

"Bye Bri," Tyrell said smacking my ass.

I turned around and saw he had a smirk on his face. I shook my head at him and just got in the car.

"Even after all these years, that boy still has a crush on you," Monique said.

I ignored what she said and we went to DJ's house.


Monique's coming over in a little while and Blake is coming over after he takes his girlfriend to the airport. Monique and I have gotten even closer since Troy's been gone. We're always hangin' out when I don't have practice, and even when I do we hang out afterwards. I think I may have caught feelings for her, but there's nothing I can do about it.

I heard a faint knock on the door and I assumed it was Monique, so I rushed to open it.

"Hey," I said giving her a hug.

"Hey!" she said back, "where's Blake?"

"He went to take Alana to the airport; he'll be here later."

She had a really big smile on her face that was cute but suspicious.


"Oh nothing," she said still smiling.

Before I could say anything, there was another knock on the door. I know it wasn't Blake because he would have just walked in. I opened the door and saw Briana standing there with a big grin on her face.

"Bri!!!" I grabbed her and pulled her into a hug.

After I let go, I grabbed her hand and Monique's hand and walked to the couch.

"I love getting surprised by you, but I don't know if I can handle you leaving again," I said.

"Well you don't have to worry about that anymore," she said back.

"What do you mean?"

"I live here now," she said.



"No bullshit?"

"No bullshit."

I gave her another hug then lied on top of her and Monique, putting all my weight on them.

"Oh dear God! Get up!" Monique said.

I just lied there and laughed.

"Um, hello?" I heard Blake say.

"Oh hey man," I said grinning.

I continued to lie on Briana and Monique as if nothing were happening.


I walked in DJ's house and saw him lying on Monique and what looked like another girl.

"What did I just walk into?" I asked.

"We were celebrating," DJ said sitting up a little.

"Celebrating what?" I asked still confused.

He sat all the way up and saw Briana trying to catch her breath and fix her hair.

"Hey!" she said running over to hug me.

"What are you doing here?" I asked.

She didn't say anything for a minute; she just smiled.

"I just moved and I live here now!"

"That's great!" I said giving her another hug.

"So where's Alana?!" she asked with a lot of energy.

"She's in New York visiting her family. She'll be back in two weeks," I lied.

Alana won't really be gone that long, I was just trying to stall the process. I wasn't ready for Briana to hate me just yet.

"Well as soon as she comes back, I wanna meet her," she said going back to the couch.

"Okay," I said in almost a whisper.

My stomach sank when she said that. What kinda friend am I to date someone that she hates? It's just, after Alana cried to me, I didn't have the heart to break up with her. Now I'm stuck in some mess I really don't wanna be in, but I have no one to blame but myself.


I know this chapter was long, boring & messy, but let me know what you think.
