Chapter 3


I walked into the house after another night with Caden and smiled. I think I'm REALLY starting to like him. I spent the week with him and now that I had to come back home I was a little sad. It was my turn to get groceries and that made me stop by the store to get some before I came here.

I opened the door and saw Onika on the couch looking like she hadn't had any sleep since I've been gone.

"Hey Onika, are you okay?" I asked her. She shook her head and laid down. "Why are you sleeping on the couch?" She pointed to her room and I sat the bags down and walked straight to her room. I saw Chris with another woman in the bed and I started to get angry. Why would he do this to her?

"Chris! Wake your ass up!" As soon as I said that, he jumped up and started looking around.

"Beyoncé, what are you doing back?"

"Why are you sleeping with another woman! Onika doesn't deserve this!" The woman looked for her clothes and rushed out. I didn't know her and right now this was about Chris.

"I was drunk and-"

"You know what? Take your shit and get out. Onika isn't even in the right mind to tell you this but get out. She won't be seeing you until she gets better." He stood there and looked at me.

"Get out!" I shouted.

"No! I'm not leaving! This is my house." I tapped my foot on the floor and held back a bitter laugh. I didn't need to be this angry today. I heard Onika whine and I went back in the living room to see her on her stomach and just waking up.

"Onika get up babygirl." She whined and grabbed my arm. I flipped her over and saw her bruised face. "Did he hit you?" She only nodded and shined as the tears started to come down her cheeks. I helped her up and she ran to the bathroom and locked the door.

I went back in her room and saw that Chris was still here. I soon started to get my phone.

"If you don't get out I'm calling the police."

"Alright damn man."

"I'm anything but a man sweetie. Now get your light skin ass out of this house."

"Bitch you light skin-" before he could say anything more I slapped him. He grabbed me and I kicked him in his private area.

"Oh, so that's strike three. Get your ass out, I'll make sure to get your things also. Onika won't be seeing you again. I'll make sure you don't hurt her again."

He walked out and I knocked on the bathroom door.


"Y-yes Bey?"

"Can you come out babygirl?"

"N-no I look hideous, you wouldn't wanna be my friend anymore."

"Just let me come in and see it."

I felt the door being unlocked and opened it. Onika sat on the toilet and looked at me.

"Bey, I can't be with him anymore. I knew he was cheating on me with Layla. She looks better than me. He beat me two nights ago and then took me to the hospital, only to rape me when I got home. What kind of person would do that?"

"A sick one. I kicked him in the dick just for you though. He'll be out of your way."

"How did your little stay go with Caden?"

"It went great, we just hung out and kissed here and there. I really like him."

"That's good. I'm glad you're happy Bey."

"I really feel I deserve to be after what happened."

"You deserve it. No one should go through that." She grabbed my hand and looked at me.

"I should clean your face up a bit more," I said grabbing some band aids and other things.she flinched as I fixed a couple of cuts.

"As usual, I haven't been to work. I called them and told them I've been really sick."

"Onika... you can take time off if you need it."

"I think I need a bottle right now... can you get me some?" She asked.

"No." She pouted.


"Because you know how you get when you drink Onika."

"I know, but I'm better now-"

"Oh cut the bullshit. I know you're lying."

"Bey please..."


Later that night (10:30 pm)

I cuddled up against Onika while we were watching a movie in her room.


"Yes Onika?"

Onika looks at me and grabs my hands.

"I'm so thankful that you helped me. I couldn't ask for a better best friend." That made me smile.

"I'll always be here for you-" my phone rung making me grab it.

"Oh hey Caden."

"Hey baby, wanna come over?"

"My best friend is dealing with something and I wanted to help her feel better."

"Oh, well I can cook you guys something if you haven't eaten..." I laughed. He was so sweet.

"Okay, sure. I will ask her if she will want to come over."

"Alright bye."

"Bye Caden," his name rolled over my tongue smoothly.

I turned to Onika and she was falling asleep. I shook her awake and she groaned.

"Onika, come on. We're going to Caden's house."

"Carry me... please."

"Fine, you big baby."

I carried her to my car and got out my car keys. I pressed unlock and I opened the door putting her in. Her face was noticeably beat up which made me wipe a tear and remember my days of having a fucked up face.

Once I got myself settled, I put on my seatbelt and started to drive to Caden's house.
