I'm still in this bitch waiting on my trial date. My trial starts next month. Am I happy? Not really, I lost hope. I've been in the box for these last 3 months and this shit has been driving me crazy. I ended up seriously injuring 5 officers from that day. I'm lock down 23 hours a day. In a 6ft by 7ft cell. The only time I can come out is when it's my hour yard time or whenever Barber comes to prep me for trial. I can't make calls, I can only write letters. I get a letter from Kelsey basically everyday, if not that it's every other day. She's been holding a nigga down and I'll love her forever for that. I try to write her back but I haven't been feeling like myself. It's like I lost my way of thinking. I sat on my bed looking at the envelope I just received. I smile at the little hearts she put by my name. I rip it open and a picture fell out. I pick it up and turn it around, it was my baby girl.

Kali

Tears came to my eyes as soon as I saw her. I haven't seen her or any pics of her since before I was arrested. She looked so much older. She'll be 3 on January 6th. That's exactly 2 months from today. I sat there for a good 5 minutes just looking at the picture.
"Fuck man" I said while breaking down. I held the picture to my face and cries into it. It was bad being locked up but the feeling was even worst knowing I disappointed my baby girl. I was suppose to be there with her. I pulled out the letter and smelled it. It smelled just like Kelsey, Chanel No 5. I opened it and started reading.

Hi my love. I miss you and Kali does too. I can't wait to see you. Why haven't you wrote us back? Did I say something that upset you in the last couple of letters? I called the prison and they said you can't make any calls because you lost that privilege and that your be been in the box for the last 3 months. Why haven't you told me this, or you should of had Barber tell me. Baby I worry everyday day and night about you. Sometimes I just stay up all night just crying. I have faith. I pray every night asking god to look over you and us. I love you and always will.
Sincerely, Kels❤️
I sat the letter on my lap and looked up at the ceiling. I hate that she thinks she said something wrong in the last letters. The reason I didn't write her back because I don't want her out there stressing and worrying about me but she still doing that. I took out my notebook and started writing.

Hi baby. You don't understand how much I miss you and Kali. It feels like I'm missing a piece of my heart. Baby you didn't say anything wrong in your last letters, I'm so sorry I haven't been writing you back. Bae I feel so lost. It's a long story but I ended up injuring 5 officers. I've been in the box for the last 3 months. I'm in a 6ft by 7ft cell everyday. I'm locked down 23 hours a day. Baby I'm going fucking crazy. My mind is all fucked up. I can't function. I didn't want to tell you any of this because I didn't want you stressing and worrying about me. Just worry about yourself and Kali and I'll worry about myself for right now, ok. How are you tho? What Kali bad lil butt been up to? I'm gonna go and end this letter. Give Kali a kiss for me and tell her daddy loves her. I love you forever and always. Y'all forever be my one & only.

I was surprised when I received a letter from Quanell. I wasted no time ripping it open and reading it. I smiled from ear to ear as I read it.

I sat on the couch crying like the big baby I am. I miss him so much and this letter just put the icing on it. I laid on the couch and hugged his letter. I was interrupted by my phone ringing. I hurried up and got up and looked at the called ID. Barber.
"Hello" I said.
"Hello Kelsey it's Barber. Um you have to come down to the first district court." He said. I scrunched up my face.
"For what? Is Quanell ok." I asked getting worried.
"Yea yea, he's fine. The ADA and DA wants to question you. I said I was also your lawyer because I knew they would try to pull this shit". He said. I heard him bang on a desk. I could tell he was pissed.
"What would they want to talk to me about?" I asked. He paused for a while than spoke.
"Kelsey...their trying to get you to testify against Quanell." He said.
"What? No! I'm not doing..." he cut me off.
"Kelsey. You have no choice, they subpoena you.
