I got off of the plane, holding my bag tight. I'd seen those videos where people came up behind you or even ran right past you and took your shit. That was not going to be me. I had some valuable shit in here.
I pulled my phone out, ready to call RJ but something told me not to. Listening to my instinct, I put my phone back in my purse.
RJ saw me and walked over to me quickly. He had a big smile on his face, the dimples in his cheeks sinking deeper. I hadn't found anybody with deeper dimples than his.
"Wassup Baddie Bey."
"Don't call me that." I rolled my eyes but I smiled at him anyway. I wasn't gonna lie and say I didn't miss my brother because I did but with the way that whole family treated me, I was done with them. If it weren't for Robyn, I wouldn't even be here.
"What made you come? Cause you were pretty headstrong about not bringing your ass back to Houston."
"Mind your business. The moment I get disrespected, I'm packing my shit and I'm going back home."
"Might as well not even unpack." He laughed as he opened the passenger side door for me. I got in the car and opened his side for him. "What a gentle woman."
"Let that resentment go girl. I didn't do shit to you."
As he drove, uncomfortable memories flowed my mind. Going down the streets of my old neighborhood and even streets I just remembered, it pained me. Events made me hate it here.
"What you thinkin' 'bout over there?"
"How much I fucking hate it here." I looked over at him. He looked at me and we both laughed.
"I love you Bey. I wish you would stop letting them get in your head like that."
"You don't understand. It's deeper than them just cracking jokes and making fun of me."
"Then make me understand Bey. 'Cause I'm the youngest, that mean I'm stupid?"
"You not the youngest, that's Solange."
"She's sixteen. You know what I mean, like the older ones of us."
"Yeah I know what you mean."
"So what? You not gon' tell me nothing?"
"Let yo daddy tell you." I sat back, closing my eyes.
Already, I was being badgered. I didn't have the time for it.
"Yo girlfriend and boyfriend at the house." I could just hear the smirk in his voice.
"You wanna know who? Or you gon' keep playing?"
"Nika and Shawn."
I rolled my eyes. "Why are they over there?"
"Pop told everybody you was coming home."
"I told you not to tell him."
"He heard you on the phone."
"Yo dumb ass had me on speaker didn't you?"
"I lost my airpods."
"But yeah, they over there. Chris and Ariana said they gon' stop by tonight."
"Oh my Goddddd!"
