Jasmine takes an earbud out.
"Almost like how you always getting repoed?" Jasmine asks causing everyone in the room to get silent.
"Jasmine.... go upstairs" Yn says out of embarrassment for Jasmines behavior.
"NOW" Yn says.
"This was some good ass food and it was nice seeing everyone.... but imma head out" Yn's cousin says leaving out.
Yn goes upstairs.
"Y'all i'll be right back." I tell Trey and my cousins.
I go upstairs to Jasmine's room where I hear Yn yelling. I walk in her room and close the door behind myself
"I DON'T CARE IF SHE WAS STARTING STUFF WITH YOU! SHE IS YOUR ELDER AND DON'T DISRESPECT ANY OF YOUR ELDERS! THAT IS NOT HOW I RAISED YOU!"
I put my hand on her shoulder to let her know it's enough.
She sighs heavily before saying "I don't know what has gotten into you but this new attitude that you've been having recently has to go. Cause this isn't the Jasmine I know" then she walks out.
Jasmines eyes start to water up. I sit down next to her.
"Look Jaz, your mom is under a lot of pressure for this thanksgiving to be right. So you can't just...... just get cleaned up and come downstairs"
I was laughing and talking to Joyce when the doorbell rung. I was confused cause I thought everyone was here already.
"Excuse me" I tell Joyce before going and getting the door.
I open the door and see... Royalty.
She steps in the house without acknowledging me. Jasmine, Jordan and Jerome comes and shower her with hugs and so does all of Chris' family.
Royalty and I kind of had a history so now she kind of hates me. When I first met her when she was 4, she loved me. We always hung out together. But then Nia was bitter at the fact that she liked me so she started telling her horrible things about me like it's my fault that her and Chris didn't get married and I apparently broke them up and all that horrible stuff. One day when Royalty was like 8 she was being so rude to me and I asked her what's wrong and she starts going off on me. AN 8 YEAR OLD... YELLING.... AT ME. She said she doesn't want me with chris and she hates me. I was heartbroken and I slipped up and told Chris and she got scolded because of it and then she hated me even more for telling Chris.
So Chris kept up separate all these years so this situation wouldn't get worse.
I go back to the table which was empty because everyone was saying hi to Roro. I was just picking with my food. I look up and see Chris coming downstairs.
"Who's that?" Chris asks.
"Your daughter" I say, looking back down at me food.
I could feel him looking at me for a moment before going over and saying hi to her.
Everyone starts to leave and I began cleaning up.
"Babe" Chris says
