"Why are we still here? Why are we still in this stupid state? I just wanna gooOooo home. Yeah, I just wanna gooOooo home," I sang while lying in bed.

I sang my little song for a while, making Blake laugh, until my mom texted me.

birth giver 👩❤️: are y'all coming?

"My family is having their little movie night and my mama wants to know if we're coming, but we definitely don't have to," I said.

"We should go. I like hanging out with them," he said.

me: yeah

"Why are we spending so much time with my family? When your parents came, we only spent one day with them," I said.

"Because you were busy and they were only in town for the weekend. We're here for three days so we might as well. And stop acting like you hate your family because I know you love them."

"Of course I don't hate them; you just don't need to be around them for long periods of time. And I don't appreciate y'all watching videos from my childhood yesterday."

I got up so I could take a shower, but Blake pulled me back down.

"Where are you going?" he asked putting his hands up my shorts.

"To take a shower."

"Can I join you?" he asked letting me go.

"Only if you promise to behave yourself," I said standing up.

"I can't promise you that," he said looking me up & down.

I rolled my eyes and shook my head, "come on."

He smiled and followed me into the bathroom.


Okay, so the shower took unusually long because we couldn't keep our hands off each other.

We got dressed and went to the grocery store. Somehow I was put in charge of getting snacks for tonight.

We got in the store and I sat in the cart. Since my mom's family owns this store, everyone's use to seeing me be childish like this. Blake pushed the cart down the snack food aisle and we started picking out things we wanted.

"Okay, what are we getting?" Blake asked. I told him what to get and we basically filled the cart.

"Blake, I need Dr. Pepper & skittles," I said.

"After what happened last time, no you don't."

"If you loved me you would put it in this cart."

"I do love you and that's why I can't," he chuckled.

"When we get home, I will do any & everything you want me to do if you let me have it." I turned around to look at him and he looked like he was thinking about what I said.

"Alright, but I want you to remember that," he said.

"I will," I smiled. He got two Dr. Peppers and a big bag of skittles. I am such a child.

After we finished, Blake pulled me out of the cart and we went to checkout.

While we were in line, there was a woman in the next line over that kept looking at me. I knew exactly who she was, I just didn't feel like dealing with her shit right now. But, of course, she takes it upon herself to approach me. DAAAAMMMMIIIITTTT.

"Well hello Briana," the woman said.

"Hi Keisha," I said in the driest way possible.

Keisha is Devin's mom and she's still bitter that I has her son locked up. She said I was like the daughter she never had, so she felt betrayed. Blah blah blah.
