"So what happened?" I sighed as I stepped onto Ryelle's new bus. "Simone found about the kiss." She gasped. "What?? How?" I plopped back on one of the seats and ran a hand down my face. "My daughter told her." She was silent.

"Now she's hella pissed and I don't even know what ima do now." She sat down beside me and rubbed my shoulder. "Im sorry August, none of this would have happened if I would have just went home for those two days."

"It's straight, it's not all your fault, it's mines too, I should have just told her the truth right after it happened." Ryelle frowned. "...Well, why didn't you?" I took a deep breath, getting ready to explain everything. "Because." I started. "Your the first female I've been on tour with and Simone wasn't ready for it." She nodded slowly.

"She had her doubts from the beginning and I'd been telling her nothing was going to happen between me and you." " all makes sense now." I frowned. "What makes sense??" She sighed and turned to me. "I wasn't going to tell you this, but the night I met her at the club, she had a few things to say to me."

My frown deepend. "Like what??" "Well...for starters, she basically told me that I couldn't touch you, and I wasn't allowed on your bus for any reason."

"Is that why you paused when I told you to come on my bus the first day??" She nodded. I shook my head in disbelief. "What else did she say?" She sighed. "Are you getting mad? Because if you are Im not telling you the rest." I fanned her off. "Tell me." She looked down at the ground and continued speaking.

"She gave me the obvious rules like no flirting and all that and I had to stay away from all rumours involving you....which obviously didn't work." She slightly mumbled. "Before we got to the club I told her to save all them crazy ass rules, and she told me she would." Ryelle was silent.

"Im sorry about that Ry." She chuckled and fanned me off. "It's cool, If you were my husband I would've done the same thing." I frowned. "I mean." She started. "...I would have done the same thing if I had a husband as famous as you." She cracked a small awkward smile that made me laugh.

"Right, but I can't believe she still did that, after she told me she wasn't." I leaned back into my seat and took a deep breath. "Are you upset?" I nodded. "Yeah I am, she didn't even need to do all that, especially behind my back."

"Well look, if it's okay with you, I want to apologize to Simone and Aliyah." I shook my head. "Nah, I don't think that's a good idea." "Why not??" She folded her arms across her chest and waited for me to answer her. "......She told me next time she saw you, she was gon beat yo ass." Her eyes widened. "What??" I nodded. "Yeah. Just let things cool down for now."

She sighed. "Im sorry that all of this is happening." I nodded. 'Yeah me too." I stood up from my seat and walked over to the door. "Ima go back to the bus so we can get on the road." She nodded. "We havin a after party at the club after the show tonight, you comin?" She bit down on he bottom lip, thinking. "Yeah, I guess I'll come with y'all." I cracked a small smile. "Ight cool, I'll see you later."


I held onto Aliyah's hand as we both walked inside the boutique. I let her stay home from school today since she's been so bothered by the kiss the other day. "Go sit on the couch and I'll be over there in a minute." She nodded and ran over to the couch, taking her usual seat.

"How she doing?" Kerri asked over my shoulder. "Better, now that I know what's been bothering her." I folded my arms across my chest and switched my weight to my right foot. "I thought she was sad about August leaving." I nodded. "So did I." Kerri lifted a brow, once she realized something was wrong. "Ellis get over here!" She shouted behind her.
