Chapter 53

My date with Travis is tonight and I'm kinda excited because this is the first date I've been on in two years. I put on a black skater skirt, a leopard print bralet, a white blazer with black Saint Laurent pumps. After I straightened my hair, I looked in the mirror to see how I looked.

•in my head•

I look pretty good.

The doorbell rang and I went to open the door.

"Wow! You look amazing," he said smiling.

•in my head•

His smile is perfect.

"Thank you! You look pretty good yourself."

"Thanks. You ready to go?"

"Yeah, just let me get my purse."

I grabbed my purse and we left.


The date was going well; we laughed and talked the entire time without any awkward silences.

After dinner, he took me to a park. There were no street lights and no people around - just trees, the wind and the stars.

•in my head•

This is a weird ass park.

I took my blazer off and we lied in the grass. He better be lucky he's cool because black people just don't go around layin' in the grass.

"I had a really good time tonight," he said sitting up on his elbow to look at me.

"I did too."

He leaned in to kiss me and I kissed back. He moved his hand down my back which made me pull away from the kiss.

"I'm sorry," he said.

"It's okay," I gave him a smile.

We started kissing again and next thing I know, he's on top of me. I was fine until he tried to unzip my top. I put my hands over his so he'd stop and he did, but then he started kissing my neck. After that I started getting uncomfortable.

"I don't think we should do this," I said trying to get off the ground.

He pinned me down and got on top of me again.

"Come on girl. You know you want it," he said kissing my neck again.

He used one hand to hold my hands over my head and slid the other hand up my skirt. I tried to get out of his grip, but he is surprisingly strong. I didn't know what to do, but I wasn't gonna allow myself to get raped in this park. I managed to knee him in the balls as hard as possible. He let go of my wrists which allowed me to hit him in the jaw. He fell over and I got up and ran as fast as I could.

I got far away from him but I was also pretty far away from home. I pulled out my phone to call Monique.

"Come on Monique! Please answer," I said out loud.

Ugh, no answer. I decided to call DJ and the phone just rang. I had no one else to call because Cory was out of town, Jordan's on a date and Tyreke & Tyrell went to visit their family. Fuck!

I sat on the ground thinking about this shitty date and who I should call. I looked through my contacts and decided to do the unthinkable.

???: Hello?

Me: Hey, can you come pick me up? I'm outside the museum.

???: Yeah sure

I sat outside that museum for about thirty minutes evaluating everything. Finally, a black car pulled up and Blake stepped out and sat next to me.

"Hey, what happened? Why were you crying?" he asked.

"Because my date didn't go so well," I said standing up.

We walked to his car and of course he had his little pet with him sitting in the front seat, grinnin' hard as fuck.

"What the fuck did you bring her for? You coulda left her ass at home."

I got in the back seat and he drove to my house. As soon as he pulled up, I jumped out without even giving him a chance to stop. I heard him open his door and he followed me in the house.

"You didn't have to follow me in here," I said throwing my purse on the couch.

"I wanted to make sure you were safe."

"Well I'm fine, so you and the lochness monster can leave now."

"Briana, why are you so mad? You called me, remember?" I sense attitude.

"Yeah I called you, but trust me, you weren't my first choice!"

"Okay, but why the hell are you so mad?" he asked raising his voice a little.

•in my head•

Who the hell is he yellin' at?

"Because you brought that hoe knowing I don't like her! You know damn well we can't be around each other without there being a problem! You dead ass coulda left her at your house until you brought me home. I swear it's like you insist on pissin' me off!"

"She's my girlfriend! I'm gonna-"

"Jesus Christ Blake, I don't fucking care! Just leave!"

I could see in his face that I struck a nerve, but I really did not care what he had to say.

I stormed into my room and heard the front door slam. I went back into the living room and locked the door.

I went straight to the bathroom and turned the water on. I took off all of my clothes, got in the shower then sat on the floor. After just sitting there for a couple minutes, I broke down. I sat there for an hour and a half just letting the water fall on me. By now, the water was cold but I didn't care.

I heard someone knock on the bathroom door, then it opened.

"Bri, what are you doing?" Monique asked turning the water off.


She got a towel and wrapped it around me.

"I called you; where were you?"

"I was with DJ."

"That explains why he didn't answer either."

"Bri, what happened?"

"I was almost raped by Travis and-"

"Wait what?! Oh hell no!"

"Monique calm down. Don't worry about it," I said trying to calm her down.

"Sweetie, I'm so sorry," she said genuinely, "but how'd you get home?"

"I had to call Blake's bitch ass."

"Shit! How'd that go?" she asked.

"Oh we got into an argument because he brought Chewbaca with him. I know I was wrong but I don't care," I said sniffling.

"Wait, if he knew he was coming to get you, why'd he bring her?" she asked, "it's almost like he did it on purpose."

"I don't even know, but I do know I can't stay here tonight."

"Stay with me then," Monique suggested.


I got dressed, got some clothes and we went to Monique's new house.

Worst day ever.
