We looked everywhere and we couldn't find Briana at all. On the way back home, I got a call from a number I didn't recognize.

me: hello?

???: is this Monique Carter?

me: [confused] yes.

???: I'm calling from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. do you know a Briana Smalls?

My heart sank to the bottom of my stomach.

me: y-yes I do.

???: she was brought in about an hour ago and there's no one here with her.

me: thank you! I'll be right there.

"What's wrong?" DJ asked after I hung up.

"Go to the hospital!"

He didn't question anything; he just drove straight to the hospital. As soon as we got there, I ran inside and up to the main desk.

"I'm here to see Briana Smalls," I said frantically.

"Room 719."

We rushed to the elevators and went up to the seventh floor. We got to her room and knocked on the door. When no one said anything, we slowly walked in.


She turned her head to look at us and that's when I started crying. She had bruises on her face and a big bruise on her neck. I rushed to her bedside and she gave me the tightest hug. She then gave DJ a hug and sat back down.

"Bri, w-what happened?" I asked.

"Curtis," he said quietly with her eyebrows furrowed.

She didn't have to say anything else because at that point, I knew. I looked up at DJ and he was pissed. I've never seen him look this mad.

"DJ, babe, calm down," I said, putting my hand over his.

"No, fuck that! That's not okay!" He yelled. He kicked a chair over, making Bri jump, then started to leave.

"DJ! DJ, please come back and calm down," Briana said, "sit down with me."

He walked back over to the bed, sat down with her and she held his hand.

"I'll be right back," I said.

I left the room and went in the hallway to call Blake.

him: what's up?

me: we found her.

him: where is she?

me: the hospital.

him: what happened?!

me: I think you need to come down here. I don't wanna say it over the phone.

him: alright. I'm on the way.

When I got off the phone with Blake, I called Jordan. I know her boyfriend and Bri are pretty close, so he's probably gonna want to be here.



I was so pissed about what happened to Bri, I just wanted to go down to the police station and beat the shit out of this guy. The only thing keeping me calm is sitting here with Bri.

I can't believe my fiancé is related to that.

"DJ, do you think this is God punishing me for being such a horrible person?" Briana asked kinda quietly.
