“Babe..” I poked his shoulder and he didn’t move a muscle. “Chrisss” I sang, shaking him slightly. He rolled onto his back and covered his eyes with his arms. “Babe, you gotta wake up” I stated, softly, kissing his chin.
“We not going to school” He grumbled, moving onto his side so he was facing me.
“I can’t just skip school, Chris” I sighed and he waved me off.
“Only thing that is gonna happen is that they’ll call Jay, Jay will call you and then you will get out of any punishment or lecture he’s gonna try and give you. Now go to sleep” He mumbled, pulling me down back on the bed as I stood up.
“Fine” I surrendered, leaning into his chest and wrapping my arm around his torso as he wrapped the covers back over us.
“Jai?” He called, resting his big hand on my ass.
“Yeah?” I asked, looking up at his adorable face as he kept his eyes closed.
“I love you” He murmured, leaning down and pecking my lips. Not caring that we both haven’t brushed our teeth yet, I leaned up for more, pecking his soft lips multiple times before laying my head in the crook of his neck.
“I love you too big head” I stated and he chuckled, pulling me closer.
I pushed myself off my bed and squinted my eyes as I walked past my bright ass window and into the bathroom. I ignored the grumbling noise in my stomach as I brushed my teeth, washing my face before walking out my room and following the mouth-watering scent that was coming from downstairs.
I stopped at the threshold of the kitchen and watched Jailaina as she wiped down the counters, leaning up some and causing my hoodie that she was sporting to rise up, allowing me a peeking of the purple boy shorts that hugged her hips tight.
“Good morning beautiful” I mumbled in her ear, wrapping my arm around her small waist.
“Good morning baby” She turned around, her cheeks high as she smiled before leaning to meet my puckered lips. “I made breakfast and I already ate but yours is in the microwave” She instructed, pointing to the microwave before going back to cleaning the stove.
“Damn” I chuckled, smacking her ass before walking over to the microwave and retrieving my still warm plate. I sat down at the island and placed the stacked plate in front of me. It was piled with cheese eggs, sausage, bacon and those plantain things I always ask her to make.
“I made some tostones for you too so you could shut up and stop asking me” She smiled, dropping the rag on the counter and pushing herself up.
“C’mere” I grumbled and she hopped down, strutting over to my side of the island, stopping next to me. “Thank you” I leaned down to kiss her pink lips, making them a little greasy from the sausage. “You gon’ be my wife, cleaned and cooked for ya man.. you everything” I complimented, pulling her in front of me and pecking her lips again.
“Gimme” She ordered, taking the fork from my hands and stabbing at the eggs piled on my plate. She spun back around, facing me and held the fork to my mouth. I wrapped my lips around the fork before letting her slide the fork out my mouth and eating the warm eggs.
She fed me almost the whole plate before I pushed it away and picked her up, placing her on the island.
“Baby, 6 months ago, I did not think I would be with you. I actually though you were a whore” She stated, wrapping her arms around me as I stood up.
“Now you with me and its forever” I spoke truthfully, picking her up and making my way to the living room I plopped down on the couch with her in my lap before scooting down more so I was more comfortable. “Can you hand me the remote?” I asked and she turned slightly, grabbing it from the coffee table and handing it to me.
“You can’t be just leaving this around when Chase is here” She advised, holding up a small baggie.
“I know, but he ain’t here so don’t sweat” I murmured, reaching over and grabbing my jacket from the arm of the couch as I left the TV on Martin. “Hand me my notebook” I pointed to the composition notebook on the coffee table as I took the bag from her and dug through my jacket pockets for my blunt.
“I wanna try” I spoke up as he took another pull from the blunt.
“You sure?” His eyebrow raised and I nodded, reached out for it. “Hold it like this” He instructed, positioning the blunt between my thumb and pointer finger. “Let the smoke fill your mouth as you inhale and then wait like 3 to 5 seconds before exhaling” He added and I nodded, following his steps and bringing the blunt to my lips. He stared at me as I let the smoke leave my mouth, handing the blunt back.
“I like it” I smiled, as he smirked at me.
“That shit was sexy as fuck” He growled, slipping his cool hand under the hoodie I was wearing and gripping my hip tight.
We shared the blunt, passing it back and forth as I laid on his chest, watching the TV show with him.
“Babe, can you pass me that?” I asked, pointing to my vibrating phone on the other side of the couch. He leaned over and retrieved it, passing it to me.
“Fuck” I sighed when I saw it was my dad.
“Just answer it” Chris murmured, leaning his head back and blowing the smoke into the air.
“Hello” I spoke into the phone.
“Mija, la escuela llamó y me dijo que no estabas allí. No sé lo que hiciste todo el día o por qué no ha ido, pero simplemente no hacer esta mierda día o voy a tener que castigarte” His deep voice spoke through the speaker and I sighed in relief.
“Okay Pa” I agreed.
“Alright, I love you and be safe, bye” He ended the call in a rush and I tossed it back on the couch, laying my head back on Chris’ chest.
“What he say?” Chris asked, making his chest vibrate against my head.
“He said don’t make it a daily thing” I answered, quietly as his hand rested on my ass.
“Told you” He smacked my ass hard, letting out a ugly ass cackle when I jumped up.
(4 days later)
“Don’t be cheating” I pushed Ricky as he tried to distract me. We all came out to bowl and hang out with each other, except for Los. His absence was cool though cause it made both teams equal.
5 girls and 5 guys.
“Alright, alright, go” He seized his laughter, watching me intently as I prepared to toss the ball down the alley. I brought my hand back and started to bring it up, letting it release from my fingers when he screamed at me. “BOO!” He scared me and I dropped the ball sideways, making it roll right into the gutter.
“I hate you” I whined, pushing him as he laughed loud along with the rest of the guys.
“JJ your turn” Lua called out, grabbing a ball so she could go up. He watched from the other lane as she threw the ball perfectly, scoring a strike.
“Thats my baby” Bry’s loud ass yelled as she ran up to Lua, chest bumping her.
“Shut up wit’cho ratchet ass, embarrassing me in public and shit” I playfully scowled her and she laughed, wrapping her arm around my shoulder.
“Yo bruh, you ‘bout to get cut from the team” Chris shouted at JJ as his ball rolled right back past all the pins.
“Yo, it was just the wind! It affected my throw a little bit” He tried to explained and I busted out laughing, leaning on Bry as she chuckled along.
“Shut up man, it’s my turn” Chris grumbled, pushing past him and grabbing a ball.
“Lets go baby!” I cheered and the girls glared at me as he looked back and smiled before getting in the zone.
“Bitch you on our team, we don’t have time for ya’ll to be all cute” Jelani spat and I rolled my eyes, waving her off.
“Shut yo mean ass up” I retorted and she flipped me off.
“Yo Bry! Do ya thang baby” Lani cheered Bryanna, playfully sending her a wink.
“YES!” She jumped up when her ball knocked down all the pins but 2 right next to each other.
“Jai wanna go get some nachos with me?” Lua asked me and I nodded, stuffing my phone in my pocket and following her.
“Yo, we are about to beat them” I chatted, leaning my elbows on the counter top as we waited for one of the workers t come over to us.
“I know, this was a good ass idea” She sent me a pretty smile as I wrapped my short arm around her shoulders.
“This reminds me of all the times we use to go out and bowl or run through the mall, have shopping cart races through the aisles of Walmart” She reminiscent and I laughed, looking back at the times. We were some clowns. “Now everything don’ changed, my beautiful ass niece was brought into the world, I got Aaron and we’re getting closer. I mean I miss things but alot of goods things have happened and I wouldn’t change it” She explained and I nodded the whole time, agreeing.
“Tomorrow we should just have a girls day, me, you, Bry, Lani and Kendalyn” We giggled together after I said Kendalyn’s name. “Go get our hair and nails done, go to your house and have a sleepover with a whole bunch of fat and unhealthy things and talk about everything” I proposed as she smiled widely.
“Sounds like a good ass idea” She agreed, waving a chef done.
“How may I help you pretty ladies?” He flirted and I chuckled, letting Kahlua order her food.
“TWIN!” JJ ran up to us and stood between us, wrapping his arms around our shoulders. “Make that 2 nachos and a cherry slushie” He added to Lua’s order and the guy nodded before walking away and going to make the food.
“What you want, Jose?” I asked and he furrowed his eyebrows.
“I was just coming to see my twin and yo ol’ spoiled, mean ass” He grumbled, moving to the other side of Lua as I laughed.
“Stop being so damn sensitive simp ass nigga, I was playing” I retorted and he flipped me off as I continued to laugh.
“Here you go” The waiter boy from their food and JJ paid before we walked back to the crew.
“Yo, Jai you the last one to play. If you get more than 5 points then we win” Lani explained and I nodded before walking to the lane and grabbing a ball. I tried to block the guys out as they made comments trying to distract me as I brought my arm back before letting the ball go down the lane.
“YES!” I heard all the girls yell in unison as the ball his every pin, knocking them all down.
“Strike bitches” I yelled in the boys’ faces as they all sat in silence.
“Yeah, now they all on hush mode. What happen to all that shit you was talking in the car Mijo?” Bryanna asked, getting all in his face.
“Man, whatever lets go” Chris grumbled, getting up as the guys got up along with him. We all walked up to the front counter and exchanged back our shoes, putting on our regular shoes before walking out.
“So the plan for tomorrow?” I asked Lua and she nodded, smiling.
“I’ll tell Bry before her Mijo leave” She stated and I nodded, hugging her and kissing her cheek.
“Love you” I told her.
“Love you too Nieva” She kissed my cheek and I waved to Mijo and Bry as they sat in the car.
“Bye guys” I called out to them before following Chris to the car. Lani slid into the backseat as I took my seat in the passenger, looking over at Chris’ sour face. “Bae, you know it was just a game right?” I fought the smile that was trying to make its way on my face.
“I’on care, I don’t like losing” He muttered, whipping out to the parking spot fast and zooming out the parking lot as I laughed silently at his satlyness.
