Noelle Williams, a bright young black girl. Fresh out of high school and on her way to college at the start of the fall. She's what you'd call a girl with her head on straight. She stays home studying and cleaning, making sure she gets the grades to get out of the hood. But don't mistake her for being soft, she and her brother haven't had it easy for most of their lives. Unlike her brother she stayed in school. Tj "Terror Jones" Carter is what every hustler, thug, and dope boy aspire to be. He's the definition of making it in the game. He has the money, cars, homes, and women but he remembers where he came from. Tj grew up in the same neighborhood as Noelle and her brother. He was great friends with Noelle's brother and they both went down the same dark path but Tj remembers Apollo's annoying, spoiled brat of a little sister but how things change over 5 years.
