*Some of these stories have put to much on me. As someone who wants to be a film director, I immediately get ideas and put them into a story but if I feel its not good enough or no one is interested, I stop writing it. Sometimes Im just not interested anymore. Sorry to the handful that was into certain stories.
It was a typical Saturday with Chadwick home. You waking up to him staring at you with that crooked smile that gave you butterflies.
“Good morning baby” he spoke as he reached over to pull at your bonnet letting it slap back against your forehead.
“Good morning old man"You spoke back, sleep still evident in your voice as you put your feet on his legs making him suck his teeth.
"How the hell are your feet this cold if you had me turn the heat on hell last night?” he said quickly moving his legs off the bed.
“I got hot and turned it off” you said laughing at him as he shook his head.
“Whatever Minnie. Come on and get up I wanna get some food before I take you to get your nails done”
You laid there for a minute tired and not really wanting to get out of bed. You were going to suggest a lazy Saturday but he insisted that you two get out and do something, stating he had some sort of surprise for you.
Your man stood there clad in just his boxers with his long fingers on his waist, waiting for you to stand up. After a three minute staring contest you got up out of bed making your way to the bathroom.
By the time you had gotten dressed and ready to go, Chadwick who was finished getting ready twenty minutes before you had conducted some business over the phone that he hoped you would enjoy.
“You ready Minnie?” he asked you standing up with a grunt.
“Yup. Mickey are you going to help me pick out a color?” You asked as you two made your way to the front door.
“Uhhhh, champagne color?” he suggested with a shrug.
“That might be cute"you responded pulling out your phone. Once you logged into Pinterest and found a design you liked you showed it to him.
Barely glancing up from the college basketball game he nodded and murmured "Cute”
You rolled your eyes and told him you were ready. He quickly jumped up grabbing his keys and jacket before heading for the door. He opened the front door allowing you to leave first but not before giving your ass a smack.
Once in the car, Chadwick started the car and began to drive while you played with the radio connecting your phone to the bluetooth. Hitting shuffle you started to feel the music. Tamia blasted through the radio as you sung along to your man.
“I think you’re truly something special” you started but stopped once you realized he was eating Cheez Its. You laughed causing him to take his gaze off of the road for a second to see what had you laughing.
“What’s so funny baby” he asked still taking glances at you and eating.
“The fact that you pulled those Cheez Its out of nowhere. Where did your fat ass get them anyway” you asked as he sucked his teeth.
“I keep a box on the side of the door. Nosey ass, you know I keep them snacks on me” he said grabbing more. He yanked the box away when you reached for some before pulling over.
“Yippy Kiyay muthafucka. We made it” he spoke before hoping out of the car to open your door.
“Allow me to help you out Miss Daisy?"He spoke reaching out his right hand to grab your left. You laughed grabbing his hand as he kissed you.
"Are you staying here with me?”
“I’ll do whatever you want me to” He spoke kissing your cheek.
Together you walked into the shop to sign in. He pulled his hoodie onto his head and sat down by the entrance.
He sat there trying to contain his feelings. He was definitely nervous about what would be happening in about and hour.
He needed to keep himself busy he stood and walked into the back to talk to you.
“Hey baby” you smiled as you got your feet scrubbed.
“Hey, look is going across the street to get something to drink. What do you want?” He asked as her attention jumped from the lady painting her toenails and back to him.
“I don’t want anything babes, thanks for asking” she smiled making him roll his eyes.
Whatever he brought back she would definitely finish for him leaving him with nothing.
“Yeah whatever. Gimme some love” he mumbled puckering his lips as he leaned done to kiss the woman he loved. They pulled away to heard the lady fussing.
“Look at this! You wiggled your toes and messed up the nail.”
Chadwick laughed backing up. “sorry ma'am. I’ll leave you to it” he smiled before turning to walk over to the nail technician that would be working on your nails.
“Excuse me” he said as he sat in front of her grabbing her attention. “Yes?” “The woman that went back there. She wanted the champagne colored nails. You know who I’m talking about?” He asked
“Oh yes. She’s a regular client”
“Yeah well I need you to do me a favor please”
“What is it?”
“When you finish her nails and put that clear moisturizer on her hands…I need you to slide this on her left ring finger for me” he stated sliding her the box and a two hundred dollar bills.
“Ohhhh will do. What do you want me to say when I put it on her finger?”
“Tell her it’s from that handsome man she came in with” he smirked before standing up.
“I’m counting on you mama. Don’t lose that ok?” He spoke as she nodded putting it in a side drawer and winking at him.
He gave her a smile before walking out of the building into the fresh air.
He took a deep breath, thankful that he didn’t have to breathe in those chemicals for the time being.
Now he had to kill time before he officially gave his all to you.
You looked at your surroundings to try and see where Chadwick was but sighed when you saw that he wasn’t in the salon.
How long did it take to get some snacks from the store across the street?
You sighed realizing he might’ve been spotted by some fans and that he was with them taking pictures and signing autographs.
You looked down at your nails and smiled at the work.
“You like the stones?” The nail lady asked.
“You know I do girl!! This is cute”
After having her nails under the lights to dry for a fourth time she was finally done.
She watched as the nail tech rubbed the oil on her skin and massaged her hands.
Just as you were about to get up she patted your hands.
“One more thing sweetie” she said digging into a drawer and putting a ring on your left ring finger.
“Miss this isn’t mine” you said confused
“It is now. That handsome man you came in here with left it for you.” She said and got up from her seat.
Smiling down at the ring on your fresh manicure you turn as you hear the door open and the gasps of other customers.
There stood the man you loved with the most beautiful bouquet of flowers you’ve seen. He walked toward you smiling ear to ear.
“These are for you” he said and you gladly accepted them with a giggle.
“Why thank you” you said as he grabbed your free hand to make you stand up.
“ I know you’re wondering about the ring I had them put on your finger.” he spoke as he got down on one knee.
“With everything I’ve done wrong in my life this here is the one thing I pray everyday I get right. I want to wake up with you every morning and fall asleep with you in my arms at night. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about us. It’s like Picasso painted your aura, it’s like Beethoven composed your vocal tones, a Rodin inspired hand sculpted you the desire of man, Michelangelo grieves inside you. When I look in your eyes I see the seeds of my wildest dreams. I’m rambling but you just make me that nervous. My knee is starting to hurt so I’ll rap it up. Baby, will you do the honors of becoming my wife?”
I posed in the mirror as I held the dress up to my figure. I sighed and threw it on the bed. “No, not that one either”. Steven was out at a dinner meeting with Tucker, his best friend slash co worker. I wasn’t really flattered with Tucker because he always gave me creep eyes. I pulled out another dress as my phone rang. I ran over to the side of the bed and answered it. I put it on the speaker as I went back to looking in the mirror.
“Well nice to hear from you”
“What are you doing? You wanna get lunch?”
“Uh sure, today?”
“Of course today.”
“Fine what time”
“Now. I got something to tell you about this case you’ve been stressing over”
“Mon, I swear I’ll sit and talk about a piece of gum for an hour straight before I talk about that gotdamn case, excuse my language”
“But its really important- that Daniel boy is in the hospital”
I dropped my dress and picked up the phone, putting it to my ear.
“He tried to commit suicide, at least that’s what my friend, Monica told me. You know the one that works at the hospital. Her hus-”
“Yes,yes mom I know Monica. Get dressed, I’m coming to get you and we’re going up there”
“You know hospitals freak me out”
“Fine. Let me get ready”
She hung up the phone as I threw the dress down and ran to my dresser. I pulled out a regular shirt and jeans. I got dressed and slide on my flats and grabbed my keys and purse.
I walked into the hospital with my mother behind me. She clutched her purse as she held hand sanitizer in her hand. Someone coughed and she jumped. “Nisha please hurry up, Im not tryna get sick” She then squeezed hand sanitizer into her palm and rubbed viciously. I laughed as I made it to the counter. “Nu uh don't touch that counter. Here” I rolled my eyes as I held my hand out and she squeezed sanitizer in my hand. I rubbed my hands together as Monica rolled over in her swivel chair.
“Hey Tiffany, Hey Tanisha”
“Hello Ms. Monica”
She leaned up as she put some papers against her side to cover her face. “You know that boy you’re representing is in room 32 B. He tried to slit his own throat”
“Oh my God”
She nodded her head as I put my hand up, covering my mouth. “His aunt went by his apartment to check on him and he was found, just in time. Doctor said it was a miracle he even went a full 4 hours bleeding out like that without dying” I shook my head as I rubbed my forehead in disbelief. “I promised him that I would protect him, no matter what…God I suck”. Monica turned her lip up as she stacked the papers up and sat them back down. “Humph, does that including protecting him from himself and his mental illness. He keeps saying something about a damn man that no one sees, that boy got issues Tanisha, you better be careful”
I nodded my head as I looked at my mother. “You coming up with me?” She shook her head fastly. “Hell no, that boy got some craziness attached to him”. I rolled my eyes as I tapped the counter. “Fine, I’ll be back in a little while” I walked away as her and Monica carried on conversation. I got on the elevator and took the next floor up. I stepped off and found the room. His door was open and he was sitting up, attempting to eat some mashed potatoes. His aunt was sitting on his bed looking at him. I knocked on the door and they both turned. She stood up and wrapped her sweater around her as she tucked her arms under.
“Hey Karen….Hey Daniel”
He weakly waved as Karen looked at him and then me. “He uh…cut his vocal cord pretty deep so um…he cant talk for awhile” I grabbed her by the arm and looked at him as I whispered to her. “Can I talk to you outside?” She nodded her head as we started walking. She gently closed the door as she looked through the window to check on Daniel.
“I don’t think he did this to himself Karen”
“What do you mean?”
“A couple of days ago, he came into my office. He looked frightened and…he said the killer was following him”
“Daniel has PTSD and probably survivor’s guilt. He’s gonna say things that don't make any sense Ms. Tanisha.”
“I don't know Karen, he sounded very sure someone was following him around. I think you should have people around him to protect him”
“He’s moving in with me. You need to worry about keeping him out of prison, that's what we hired you for. Find out who murdered my sister and stop focusing on Daniel. We’re gonna get him the help he needs”
“No disrespect Karen but before this incident happened, have you even tried to discuss what’s going on with Daniel, mentally? I don't think he’s lying.”
She stepped up to me with her arms still tucked under her sweater.
“Daniel won’t be coming by your office anymore. My attorney will be discussing this case with you from now on. We don’t want to scare Daniel anymore than he already has. By you believing him makes it worse. Good day Ms. Tanisha”
She walked back into the room and closed the door. I peeped through the window as she had her back turned. Daniel looked at me and held up a note. “Come back tomorrow”. I nodded my head as he quickly sat the note back down. I walked away and took the elevator back down to the first floor. My mother was sitting in the waiting room. She jumped up and ran over to me as we walked out of the building.
“How’s the boy doing?”
“Good. He has to tell me something but his aunt doesnt want me around him anymore so I have to come back tomorrow when she’s gone”
She nodded her head as we got in the car. I looked at her as I buckled my seatbelt.
“You know it”
She smiled as I started the car and pulled out of the parking lot. The phone started ringing and it popped up on my car radio. It was my father. My mother rolled her eyes as she looked out the window. I chuckled as I answered it.
“Is your mother with you?”
I looked at her as she shook her head and pointed at me.
“No dad, why?”
“First of all, you lying. I can hear her heavy chest ass breathing. Tiffany I want my got damn dog!”
My mother sat up and glared at the radio.
“Fuck you Oscar you aint getting coco. She needs a house with love…and common sense. You’ll have her somewhere starving”
“You hold Coco as bait to get me back to that house well it aint gonna work”
“Oh please. You cant even get it u-”
I yelled as she almost finished her sentence.
“Hey! I don’t wanna hear it you two! Dad if its that serious, I’ll buy you another dog exactly like coco.”
“I don’t want another dog. I want coco and Im gone get her, call me back Princess when you get away from Maleficent”
He hung up as my mother folded her arms. I shook my head as I sighed. “Why do you and dad do that? Its like you two hate each other.” She looked at me as I stopped at a red light.
“He’s an idiot but I still love him. I don’t know when that little drift happened but it was there long before we decided to divorce. We stayed strong for you. I wanted to show you what a happy marriage looked like.”
I chuckled as I pulled off. “Mom, you both tried your best. My marriage is very much trash right now so you two aren’t so bad. At least you know what you both wanted at the end.”
She lowered her eyebrows in concern. “Is everything alright between you and steven?” Part of me wanted to vent and tell her hell yes and the other half was just like fuck it. I chose the fuck it option. “Everything is alright ma” She touched my arm and looked at me. “You sure?” I nodded my head as we pulled into the sandwich shop. “Alright. Im heat if you need me” I nodded my head as I turned the car off and unbuckled my seatbelt.
We walked into the diner and sat down at a booth. It was little people inside so they were fast taking our orders and setting our food out. I bit into my philly cheese steak sub as my mother cut into her eggs.
“Its so nice outside, look at that beautiful lighting”
“Yea its nice”
“How’s your little friend Lenna?”
“Still wild and unpredictable”
She laughed as she ate a piece of egg. “Lord I remember when I was like that. Yo grandmother couldn’t get me to sit still for 5 minutes, that’s how I ended up with you”
“Spare me the details please”
“What? You grown now and by the way, when am I gonna get grandchildren?”
“Probably not anytime soon mama”
“Well your eggs need to be cracked now, time is running out”
I didn’t say anything as I sipped my coke. “Tanisha?” I heard someone say my name and I turned to see Chadwick standing there. I swallowed my soda and smiled. I stood up and hugged him. I cant lie, I’ve been waiting to touch this man for a minute since our little dinner date. My mother looked on as I pulled away and he held my waist.
“What have you been up to?”
“Not much, just thinking about you”
My mother choked on a piece of bacon. I moved his hand as I held my hand out. “Chadwick this is my mother, Mom this is chadwick” She wiped her mouth as he held his hand out. “Nice to meet you” She nodded her head as she shook his hand. He smiled as he let go and looked at me.
“I never got your number.”
I looked at my mother who was looking at me.
“Yea umm…I dont think thats right to do that…” My eyes were telling him to give me his and he knew it. He played along and nodded his head.
“I understand. Nice seeing you Tanisha” He then turned to my mother. “And Ms….” My mother smiled and intertwined her hands. “Tiffany”. Chadwick smiled and nodded his head. “Tiffany” He then waved as he left the restaurant. I sighed and sat down as my mother looked at me. “Are you trying to mess up your marriage?” I sighed as I ate a fry. “Its not like that mama, he’s my friend”. I looked out the window to see him holding up a piece of paper. My mother was still talking but I wasn’t listening to what she was saying. He walked over to my car and put the paper in my windshield wiper. He smiled at me and waved. I chuckled as my mother called my name.
“You haven’t heard nothing I said”
“Im sorry ma”
She rolled her eyes and ate another piece of egg. “Like I was saying, you don't need to be stepping out, no matter how fine a man is”. I looked at her as she chewed and pointed her fork at me. “I hear you ma”.
We finished lunch and walked back to the car. I quickly grabbed the note before she questioned me on what it was. I drove her home and waited until she went into the house safely before I opened the note.
-Since you couldn’t give me your number, mine is 298-457-1344. Call me whenever you wanna hang out
I squealed as my phone rung. I looked down to see it was Steven. My excitement went away just as fast as it came. I answered as I put the note in my wallet.
“Good afternoon my love”
I groaned at the sound of Tucker’s flamboyant voice. He was so damn annoying.
“Tucker said hey”
“Yea, I heard him. Hey Tucker”
“Anyway. Me and some guys are having a little get together, wives and girlfriends are invited. You’re welcome to come”
“Why are you telling me I’m invited like I’m not your wife”
“Jesus Christ Tanisha please don’t make this an issue. Be ready by 7″
He hung up the phone as I rubbed my forehead. He was a jerk around his friends sometimes. I smiled as I thought about Chadwick. What if I did step out? Just for one night? Would I feel better? I know some people do that fix their marriage, but would it be worth it? Would he be worth it? I smiled as I started my car. Hell yes he would.

Me and Simone have been sleeping in separate rooms since the scandal happened. Luckily my team actually did there job this time around and said it was all rumors. Kimberly insists that she didn’t leak the story and I believe her, she was too upset to do that to us. We agreed to wait until this situation calmed down and we would co parents for now. I wanted to be with her so bad but things are different now, she’s tired of giving me chances and I understand I messed up. I want to see London so bad but I know people are watching me now. I avoid interview questions that involve the scandal but I advised Nikki to tell them not to do that. I got up out of the bed and went into the kitchen. Me and Simone have been distant with each other but we still conversate. I dont want to put her out because she has Nova and I know she will try to take me to court. I felt bad I did her dirty so I eased up a bit on her. She was sitting down at the table breast feeding Nova.
I fixed me some coffee and looked out the window. The tension is the room was thick as hell. It was weird that she was quiet, she talked a whole lot but now she was mute. London was now 7 months and crawling while Nova was 2 months. Both of them were starting to recognize people in their life and it wasnt fair to London that I wasnt around. I sighed as I sat the mug down and folded my arms.
“I think…I should bring London here to meet Nova”
“hm…if that’s what you want, you still should get a DNA test, It’d be stupid to help raise a child that’s not yours…”
I thought about it for a minute. What if she wasn’t mine? I never doubted Kimberly whenever she told me she was pregnant. I trusted her…
“I think you’re right”
She looked up at me with a surprised expression. For the first time in a long time I finally gave her credit for something. Maybe I should give up on Kimberly and focus on me and Simone. It was only right since Kimberly no longer wanted to be with me. I walked over to the table and sat down in front of her.
“Things are gonna be different between us now…If she is mine, you’ll have to accept and love her the same way you love Nova”
“I’m not mad at the baby, I’m mad at her mother …can I ask you why you did what you did?”
“…I loved her…now thats not the case anymore, I’m sorry for what I did to you…I cant change anything but we can move forward from this…”
“Do you still love her?”
I put my head down and sighed. Of course I still did and if she wanted me to drop everything and be with her I would…but I wasn’t going to tell Simone that. I had love for simone but I wasn’t in love with her.
She nodded her head as she looked at Nova.
“Sorry I’ve been a bitch these last couple of years…I just get protective over you…”
“I love you Chadwick”
“I love you too Simone…”
She smiled as she reached over and kissed me. I should’ve done things different from 12 years ago. I would’ve married Kimberly and we would’ve had the life we always wanted together but because of my selfishness and my desires…I ruined everything for me and her. It wasn’t like I was stuck with Simone, I could get rid of her at any time…I just felt bad for her. The only way is forward from here…
3 weeks later…
I sat in the car, scrolling on instagram as we sat outside Kimberly Janae’s house. Chadwick wanted to do this co parenting shit and I acted like I was down with it but in reality this shit was eating me up. At least I still got to keep my man, she thought she was slick but he belongs to me. I looked up to see her coming out with London on her hip. I rolled my eyes without Chadwick noticing. He stepped out of the truck to help her and I looked back at Nova playing with her toy. I smiled as I turned back around. He put London’s car seat in first and Kimberly put her in. I sighed in frustration as I looked at them in the rearview mirror. I smirked as I turned around.
She strapped London down without looking at me.
“I dont know…”
“You guys must of broke up?”
She ignored me as she finished strapping London in. “Mama loves you pretty girl” She smiled and kissed her on the cheek. She looked over at Nova as Chadwick climbed in.
“Hello Nova…look London you’re a big sister”
I rolled my eyes as I went back to looking at my phone.
Chadwick looked at me and I shrugged my shoulders. Kimberly slammed the door and walked to the driver’s side.
“Remember she still has a slight cold so give her something for that and dont let her take naps past 5 because she wont sleep at night and no junk food until she's had real food”
Chadwick laughed and held her hand.
“Kimberly…I got this…She’s my child too. I promise she will be in one piece when I bring her back”
She smiled as he hugged her. I looked at her as she looked at me. I held up my hand to flash my new ring. She rolled her eyes as Chadwick pulled away.
“Well…you guys have fun, see you Monday”
He smiled and climbed in the truck. She walked back in the house as we pulled out of the driveway. I was not looking forward to this at all. I looked at London who was playing with the toys attached to her seat while Nova slept. She was actually a cute little girl, unlike her mother. I chuckled to myself as I looked back down at my phone. The whole weekend while Chadwick was working I did the exact opposite of Kimberly said not to do. I didnt give London any medicine (Well not what she said to give her), I gave her cookies and what not before dinner and her and Nova took naps all throughout the day. I was aiming to piss her off like how she pissed me off. Of course I wouldn't hurt London but by the time she’s 8, she’ll like me more than her mother. Quinn dropped by just because and I needed a friend since everyone else was busy. We sat down on the couch as London and Nova played on the floor. Quinn smiled as she looked at them.
“Well it’s nice to see you and Kimberly are getting along”
I snorted as I looked through my purse
“Girl please, I barely talk to her. Chadwick does all that. I have nothing to say to a side hoe”
I pulled out a DNA kit from my purse as Quinn looked at me.
“A DNA test dummy…”
“London. I don’t trust Kimberly and neither does Chadwick”
“Did he tell you that?”
“I don’t think that this is a good idea Simone, it would cause a lot of problems”
“No it would solve a lot of problems. God bless London if Chadwick’s not the dad. Her mother is a whore…”
“Why won’t you just let it go Simone? Kimberly didn’t make that baby alone”
“Yea you’re right but I’ve forgiven him. She knew what she was doing”
“If I’m not mistaken…wasn’t she there before you?”
“And she messed up so I took her place…look if I’m offending you by talking about your friend then you can leave…”
“She’s not my friend…”
I rolled my eyes as I got up and picked London up off the floor. Quinn looked at me and shook her head as I swabbed her mouth. I drop the q-tip into the seal as I placed her back on the floor to crawl. Quinn crossed her legs and sighed.
“Now what are you gonna do to get Chadwick’s salvia? Ms I know it all?”
“Already got it…he drank a beer earlier…I’ll have results in 3 hours”
“3 hours? That’s impossible”
“Not when you have friends that work in that department”
“Simone…you’re fucking insane”
“You say that like its a bad thing”
I had someone come by the house while Chadwick was out to scan and evaluate the results. Quinn sat on the couch and watched as Tiffany set up her testing equipment.
“Thanks for doing this for me Tiffany”
“Girl you know I got you. That’s fucked up he did that to you…”
“We’re past it now, I just don’t fuck with her.”
“I hear you…you got the samples?”
I smiled as I handed her the q-tips. I sat down while she did whatever she had to do. It took about 30 minutes before she called me back over. She held samples up to me and a color chart and other stuff I didn’t understand.
“Well it looks like you have a stepdaughter”
Quinn snorted as Tiffany continued talking
“They are an exact match…”
I shook my head as I grabbed the paper from her. She can’t be his, she just couldn’t be.
“Do it again”
“I can’t Taylor. I’m taking a risk even coming here doing it for you without permission. DNA doesn’t lie honey”
“Well…give me fake results”
Quinn looked up from her phone as I looked at Tiffany.
“That would cause a shit ton of problems not only with you but for me too. I could get fired and probably even fined.”
“I won’t tell anyone please Tiffany…”
I looked at her for a moment and she sighed.
“Fine but yo crazy ass owe me.Y’all got a computer?”
I smiled as I played with London on the floor. She was starting to raise her head and support her neck more. After I left the hospital, me and Chadwick agreed that he would support me and spend time with London whenever he got free time. She has both of our last names and no one but certain people know he’s the father. I’m actually kinda nervous to see what’s gonna happen when people do find out. I sighed as I picked London up off the floor and walked into the kitchen. Chris was out of town for a movie. I haven't heard anything about Simone since she said I ruined her wedding day. It’s almost time for her to have his other child, if I’m not mistaken I think she’s also having a girl. London chewed on her hand as my phone rang. I answered it as she grabbed my hair.
“Pack your bags we’re going out of town”
I rolled my eyes as I moved London’s hand. I didnt have time for Chadwick’s antics this week.
“I want you to meet someone”
“Fine let me get us ready”
“Be there in 20”
I hung up the phone and packed me and London a bag. Chadwick picked us up and took us to the airport, still not telling me where we were going. We got on the plane as he held London. We sat down and I looked at him,
“Are you trying to make this a family trip or something?”
“Something like that…”
I sighed as he played with London. I sat back and didnt ask anything else, I wonder who he was taking me to meet. The plane landed and Chadwick woke me up. He smiled as everyone stood up. He handed london to me as he grabbed our bags.
“Welcome to South Carolina beautiful”
“What?! You’re taking me to meet your parents”
“I dont think thats a good idea…”
“They already know Kimberly Janae…”
“Yep, I couldn’t keep you from them any longer…but the world…that’s a different story but we’ll get there eventually”
I watched as he grabbed our bags and started walking off the plane. He really told his family about me? I guess he really was serious about everything he said. I smiled as I followed behind him. We exited it out of the airport to a car that an older woman was standing at. She smiled as a man emerged from the other side.
“Brother in law!”
Chadwick smiled as he sat our bags down. The man and woman hugged him as he turned around. The man smiled as he walked up to me.
“You must be Kimberly?”
I nodded my head. He smiled and reached out his arms to hug me.
“Im Derrick, Chadwick’s older brother and that is my wife Rachel”
She smiled and waved at me.
“Hello. You're beautiful girl”
I smiled as they looked at London.
“Awe look at her, she’s got our nose”
They laughed as Chadwick loaded our bags in the car. They led me to the backseat and Rachel climbed in with me as Chadwick sat in the front. Rachel asked me questions about myself as we drove on the highway. I was nervous as hell. What if his family think I’m a homewrecker or something? Did he at least tell them I was there before Simone? So many damn questions. I smiled as I held London in my arms. It was only right that she met her father’s side. I don’t want her to be raised without getting to know them. We made it to a house where a whole bunch of people were sitting on the porch and standing around. I swallowed spit as Rachel climbed out. I held onto London as Chadwick came to my side of the truck.
He reached his arm out as I scotted out of the car. His brother grabbed our bags as I stepped out. People were looking at me as I put my head down. I didn’t wanna meet them like this. I wanted it to be before I even had kids and when he was committed to me. A girl walked up to us and smiled.
“You must be Kimberly? I’m Briana. Uncle chad had told us about your situation…we won’t judge you for it, stuff happens and he clearly loves you”
I smiled as she looked at London
“Awe Breah come look at our new cousin”
Breah,who I’m assuming is also his niece, also came over and fawned over London. Soon enough I passed her off to brianna and let everyone get to meet her while I stood by. His mother came out and started walking towards me. I froze as she stopped in front of me.
“Well about time I meet you. I’m Carolyn”
I smiled as I shook her hand.
“I know. My son had gave me a 2 hour story on your relationship and I will say I am a bit disappointed but I don’t hate you, you were here before that girl and thank God my grand baby came before he put that ring on her finger. I didn’t want him marrying her, heffa has an evil spirit”
I laughed as she grabbed my hand.
“Your secret is safe with us. We won’t say anything but please don’t lock her out of our lives”
I nodded my hand as we walked into the house. His family was so sweet and welcoming to me. They promised not to mention anything to the press or anyone else about me. To my surprise, half of them didn’t even like Simone but they would only tell me that in code or when Chadwick wasn’t in the room. They wanted him to get custody of the baby she was carrying but only time will tell what will happen. I made it clear to them me and Chadwick were co parenting and nothing more. I still loved and I won’t ever stop but this relationship had run its course. We ate and talked all day and it was time for us to leave. Carolyn offered for me to stay at the house with her and her family but I didn’t want London to get overwhelmed so we just got a hotel nearby. Chadwick paid for us all a room and we checked in. He sat our bags down as I laid London on the bed as she slept. I sighed as Chadwick looked at me with a smirk on his face.
He just shook his head and walked into the bathroom. I unloaded my clothes for tomorrow and my night clothes. He came back out and stood behind me, wrapping his arms around my waist.
“You smell good..”
I rolled my eyes as I moved his hands
“…I’m not fucking you”
“How do you know that’s what I wanted? Maybe I just wanna talk to you and hold you…I haven’t done that in a long time”
I turned around and looked at him. He actually looked sad,maybe I was being too harsh on him. Whenever I do let up on him though he takes advantage of my kindness. I rubbed his face and smiled.
“Fine, but no sexual contact”
He smiled at me and kissed my lips. I took a shower and climbed into bed with him. London was beside me on the other side as I turned to hold her. He got behind me and put his arm around my waist. He kissed my shoulder as he rubbed my side. The only noise in the room was London cooing in her sleep.
“I wish I would’ve picked you from day one…”
He didn’t say anything as he hugged me tighter. It almost sounded like he was holding back tears as he spoke more.
“Do you still love me?”
“Do you love Chris?”
“I don’t know…do you love Simone?”
“I don’t know either…”
“Do you love me?”
“More than anything in this world…”
We didn’t say anything for the rest of the night and we ended up falling asleep. Around 2:30 in the morning his phone rung. He stirred as London started waking up, he groaned and snatched his phone off the charger.
“CHADWICK YOU NEED TO GET HOME NOW! YOUR DAUGHTER IS COMING!”
He jumped up as I stopped London from crying
“SIMONE IS IN LABOR ASSHOLE! Get on the fucking plane and come home!!”
“Alright shit I’m on my way!”
He hung up the phone and looked at me. I rolled my eyes as I patted London on the back.
“Let me pack our things”
He sighed as he got up.
“We’ll go on another trip soon”
I didn’t say anything as I gathered up our stuff. We won’t ever be like this again once that baby gets here… I know it.
I screamed as my contractions came back to back. That asshole wasn’t here and I was pissed. I don’t know what the fuck he went back home for but I didn’t give a damn, he needed to be here. India already told the blogs I was in labor and they were expecting to see Nova as soon as she got here. It was a bad look if Chadwick wasn’t present. India held my hand as I screamed. I was gonna fuckin kill him! I was 10 centimeters dilated and good and ready to push.
“Ms. Ledward, we’re gonna need you to push now, this little girl cant wait any longer!”
“NO! IM NOT PUSHING UNTIL HE GETS HERE!”
“Ms. Ledward please! Your baby will lose oxygen if you dont push”
My mother held my hand as I cried.
“Got damn it Simi just fuckin push!”
I closed my eyes as I pushed and screamed. I screamed from Anger and pain. I cant believe that son of a bitch! I got something for his ass when he gets here. I finished pushing my daughter out and I smiled as she cried. Finally! Now I got something to hold over him. Don't get me wrong I loved my daughter but he was not about to walk away from me without some compensation so…child support is the way to go. I leaned my head back as they passed me nova. I sighed as I seen she had his nose. I hated their noses but for the most part she looked like me and she had beautiful hair. She was definitely gonna out do kimberly’s daughter in everything: Sports, school, you name it. I don’t like the fact that they are siblings but London’s mother just had to be a whore and sleep with Chadwick. I wont hold it against the child, after all it is still up in the air if he’s the dad or not. I smiled as I got comfortable to take a nap. I couldn't wait till he got here. I was gonna let his stupid ass have it. I woke up about 2 hours later to him sitting in the chair looking at Nova in the basket. He was smiling as he played with her hand. I sat up and looked at him.
“Oh you up. I am so sor-”
“WHERE THE FUCK WERE YOU?!”
“I was with my family…”
“Because I wanted to see them…please stop yelling you’re gonna wake Nova up”
“I DONT GIVE A FUCK! YOU LEFT ME!”
“Its not like I knew you were gonna go into labor”
“So, you could have took me with you”
“You hate my family simone”
“You wouldn't just visit them without a reason…so tell why were you there?”
“Jesus fucking christ simone l was at a family reunion. It was last minute alright? I didn't want you to be at risk”
I didn't say anything as Nova started crying. He reached to pick her up as I threw the cover back and got up. I snatched her away from him as he looked at me.
“You're being stupid! Give me my daughter!”
“No! Get the fuck out! I will let you know when its time for us to leave the hospital…bye!”
He just looked at me and shook his head. I wrapped nova backup in put her back in the basket. He closed the door on his way out and I climbed back in bed. I facetimed his aunt Tiffany, she was the messy one and told me anything I needed to hear. She answered the phone and I put on a fake smiled as she looked into the camera!
“Taylor! Let me see the baby!”
“She’s asleep right now. Sorry I couldn't make it to the reunion”
“Yea chadwick said you guys had a reunion”
“Chile our reunion isn't until another year or so…”
She nodded her head as she sipped her tea jar.
“Imma gone and get off this phone bc nephew is lying to you sweetheart”
She hung up and i slammed the phone down. I thought for a minute before I picked the phone back up and went to instagram. I typed in kimberly’s name and looked at her profile. She was such an idiot, she broadcasted everything she did.
I scrolled down to her post and the first picture was of a tree with the caption “First time in SC and I enjoyed it!” I screamed as I threw the phone. I fucking knew it! He was with her. His lying cheating ass. I grabbed my macbook and facetimed one of my blogger friends who worked for the shade room. I was gonna make her life a living hell. I’ll deal with him later.
