Chapter 22: Said they be hatin anyway cause baby girl i got you. just you and me against the world, baby girl i got you.
Ty heard footsteps behind him then petite arms wrap around his waist.
“What’s wrong baby?”
“Just dropped my shit down the stairs” he said fake pouting.
She released her hold and walked down the stairs picking his phone up off the hardwood floor.
“Awh. Babe your screen cracked and it turned off.” He shrugged and she came back up the stairs.
“It;s just a phone. They’re replaceable.” He grabbed her by her waist pulling her in “You on the other hand are irreplaceable.” He kissed her on her forehead. She hugged him tight resting her head on his chest.
“Yeah?” she asked lifting her head up to make eye contact.
“You like LA?”
“I’onno.. never been.. Washington has always been my home.”
“How bout we change that?”
“You.. you mean like.. move to LA?”
“Yeahh.. you me and Cam? Start fresh? Get away from all this bullshit.”
“Well..okay. As long as Cam is okay with it and is willing to come..”
He smiled and picked her up carrying her to the bed. He plopped down with her tickling her sides. She tried to squirm away from him and he ended up hovering over top of her. He looked deep into her eyes. They were so big and just pulled him in. They were so deep, with so many secrets held behind them. Just then Mel popped into his head. He was here laid up with a girl he was really truly falling for when there was a girl across town who was claiming to be almost eight months pregnant with his second child. Then Kennedy and Nani popped into his head. He was trying to run away from one problem when there were so many other things he had already piled on his plate. His mood changed fast. He collapsed down next to her with a sigh.
“Ty.. what’s wrong?”
“We can’t leave…”
“Bae.. I have to be really honest with you right now… and i’m warning you.. you really ain’t gone like what I gotta say..”
“Ty.. i’ve been threw hell. I’m sure the honest truth won’t break me.”
He sat up and she did the same, sitting indian style.
“Bae.. before you came into my life I wasn’t so smart with shit I did.. My ex Kennedy.. fuck.. that’s a whole ‘nother story itself but I got her pregnant and shit.. and we fought was to much.. I got pissed and went and cheated on her after our baby was born. Came home with hickies and we ended shit that day.. well she the one that was in the hospital… but the one bitch I cheated on her with texted me a few ago and said she like eight months pregnant and shit.. that’s how I dropped my phone.. I mean .. shit running away is all I wanna do.. but if that baby mine.. I gotta man up…”
“…That it?” He gave her a confused . He scratched the side of his head scrunching his eyebrows together.
“The fuck? What you mean that it? That’s a shit ton of baggage bae!”
“I know.. but it’s not like you cheated… well. I mean we really aren’t even together. How can I get mad at all that shit when it’s ya past. Boo.. I have a fucked up past.. who am I to judge.. But what I do know it I love you. Your past isn’t and never will scare me away. But break my heart and I’ll be gone before you realize that you even did. Just promise me you’ll love me and give me your all?”
He held out his pinky finger.
“Pinky promise bae” She smiled latching her pinky around his. “As long as you promise to do the same?”
“Pinky promise, boo boo” He leaned in and kissed her. ” I love you Ty.”
“I love you too bae.. i’m tired as fuck doe. Lets crash.”
“Yeah?” he asked getting comfortable under the sheets.
“This the first time we stayin the night with each other.”
“The first night for many, many more to come bae.. now come lay down with me.” She smiled and did as he said getting comfortable next to him. He pulled her in close holding her until they both dozed off to a deep sleep.
“Lazy mothafuckers! Wake the fuck up!” Chris yelled into the bedroom, Cam standing just behind him laughing. Ty pried open his eyes and saw it was six at night the next day.
“Oh shit. It’s really after six fa real?”
“Na dog. Fa play”
“Shut up Chris.. Nigga roll wit me?”
“Nigga you tryin to kick wit ya old bitch when you laid up?” He asked pointing to Charlee. Charlee sat up laughing.
“Chris it’s okay. I know. Bitch say she pregnant wit my mans baby and shit!”
“Damn ratchet aight!” Chris said laughin. “Less roll doe .”
Ty went to get out of bed but tossed the covers back over him.
“Aye uh. Gimme a minute doe.” Chris nodded and left closing the door. Ty just sat there.
“What you doin?”
“Babe quit stallin” She said threw laughs. “Get up silly!”
“But I already am..”
“What?” He grabbed her hand and put it on his member. “Oooh.. that’s why you couldn’t stand up?” she said with a giggle. He nodded his head .
“So.. you still wanna fuck?” he asked rolling over on top of her.
“Ain’t gone happen boy” she said laughin and scootin form underneath him. She got up of the bed and walked out of the room. He huffed getting up from his bed and running to the shower. When he got out everyone was downstairs. He pulled on some sweats and a tee.
“You ready nigga?” Chris nodded his head and got up dapping Cam and hugging Charlee.
“Later sis. Peace nigga”
Ty kissed Charlee and dapped Cam.
“Later babe.. text me if you need anything. Love you.”
“Mka.. love you too.” When they were out the door and down the street Cam stood up.
“Cammy where you goin?”
“I gotta go take care of some shit. Be back tonight.”
“Uhm okay.. can I come?”
She sucked her teeth and crossed her arms.
“Why the fuck not!”
“Cause I got shits to do. You’ll be aight. Just stay here.”
He hugged her and left.
She went into the kitchen and pulled a bag of chips from the cupboard. Walking back down the hallway to the living room she saw a case full of dvds. She scanned them over before finding her favorite movie Big Daddy. She smiled grabbing it off the shelf. She trotted into the living room with the dvd and bag of chips. Putting in the dvd in she ran upstairs grabbing sweats a big tshirt of Ty’s and a blanket off his bed. She cuddled up on the couch eating chips and enjoying the move, laughing at all her favorite parts. Towards the end of the movie she started drifting back to sleep.
Ty waited a long time in front of Mel’s house for her to get home from work. When she pulled up Ty wasted no time hopping out of Chris’ car.
“Oh.. hey Ty?”
“Yo we needa talk”
“Oh.. okay. Well come in.”
“Look Mel..” he started off sitting down on her couch. “I see you all pregnant and shit.. but just cause you sendin me pics and shit don’t mean he mine. I mean no doubt I believe you.. I’m just tryin to say I got my own shit goin but i’ll help all I can.”
she was nodding her head at what she was saying as she texted on her phone.
“Yo you hearin me ?”
“Yes Ty.” her phone started ringin. “I’ll be right back.”
He heard her answer in the other room then she got really quiet. He tiptoed towards the room she was in listening to what she was saying the she closed the door and put the phone on speaker as she pulled out her make up bag.
“The fuck you mean he over there askin questions!”
“Chill babe! He thinks it’s his. Nobody has any clue it’s yours. He said he’ll help out which means money. You’re freaking out about nothing. Don’t worry. You’ll get your money babe.”
“I better. I’m fuckin serious. The second he starts thinkin that shit aint his you better tell me!”
“Okay , Dom. I gotta go.. how much this time?”
“Six g’s baby . Meet me tonight with the money.”
By this point Ty had heard enough. He walked out and hopped in the car.
“Fuck. Nigga that shit ain’t mine! I heard her in the other room talkin with some nigga bout how they trying to get money from me and shit! Fuck that. Nigga lets roll.”
Chris dropped Ty off and he walked into a dark house only being lit by the tv. He saw Charlee couped up o the couch asleep.
“Bae. Bae wake up! ” he shook her awake.
“Hey baby! How’d it go?” she asked sitting up.
“Stupid as shit! Bae that shit ain’t mine. I heard her in the other room talkin with some nigga bout how they trying to get money from me and shit! Trying to trick me to believe it’s mine!”
Charlee became enraged she flew to her feet.
“The fuck? Fuck that where she live?!”
“Chill ratchet” she said laughin and pulling her into his lap.”she’s eight months pregnant. Your ass’ll go to jail!”
“Well bitch better be ready when that baby pops out.. that’s for damn sure.”
He laughed so hard his eyes started to water.
“You like my lil rough rider bae.” he kissed her lightly. “I love you bae.”
“I love you too babe.”
Ty couldn’t help but think he could live the rest of his life by her side. And right now, LA was sounding better and better by the second..
