Keep Trying

Meena’s POV

It’s Friday and last period just let out. I’ve gotta get home and get ready for this stupid ‘date.’ Chres offered to take Chris to soccer practice while I’m gone, but of course, I refused.

            “Come on, babe. I got it. You just worry about your date.” Chres said.

            “You say this all calm and collected. ‘Just worry about your date.’” I huffed

            “I told you, I’m not worried about Sebastian at all. But maybe I should be.” Chres said thoughtfully.

I sat on top of his desk. “Why?”

            “Well, before I came here, his twin sister, Sebastiana, and I had a little fling going on. But her mom didn’t approve and somehow, talked me into moving out here so that I wouldn’t talk to Sebastiana anymore. Now they’re back and Kiani told me she senses trouble. I honestly just want you to go on this date to get some information.” Chres explained.

I wasn’t too thrilled with the fact that his ex was back, but I’d have to cope. I don’t know it bothers me, but it does. Especially since Kiani said she feels trouble is coming.

Kiani is a Pisces, and they always ‘predict’ what’s going to happen. So, I’m going to have to believe Kiani on this one.

            “Hey, girl!” Shanae said hugging me. “I haven’t seen you all day!”

            “Chill, you’re too hyper.” Deborah said.

            “Shut up and go back to texting your boo thang.” Shanae retorted.

            “Speaking on boo thangs, what’s up with Jacob?” I asked.

            “Everything girl! He’s perfect. His publishing company is looking at my works tomorrow!” Shanae screeched.

            “Aww, I’m really happy for you.” I cooed.

            “So Whatcha got planned?” Kiani asked

            “Stupid date with Sebastian. Courtesy of Chres.” I mumbled.

            “I got a bad feeling about those twins. Sebastiana is trying to get Chres back and Sebastian is obviously after you.” Kiani said.        

            “Yeah, I know. But I’ll catch up with you guys later.” I said before getting in my car. This was going to be a longgggggg night.

Sebastiana’s POV

I watched Meena pull out of the parking lot, and Kiani, Deborah & Shanae walk back towards the school. I assume they’re waiting on their ride. From what I’ve heard, that would be Craig, Ray, and Jacob.

I’ve been thinking about what Sebastian said. I really do need friends and I’ve got four in mind—Meena, Deborah, Shanae & Kiani. Only problem is that Kiani doesn’t like me and you know how those things go. If one person in the crew doesn’t like me, then the whole crew doesn’t like me.

But it’s worth a try anyway. I mean, I could benefits from being friends with them. The closer I get to them, the closer I get to Chresanto. He will ALWAYS be my man; I don’t care what anyone says. We’ve never done it, so we don’t have that physical attraction yet, but we’ll get there.

NO. I’m not crazy, I just get what’s mine, and he was mine first! He can’t get forget about everything we had and give it up that easily!
