I woke up to the sun at the highest point, the sun’s rays were just about coming through the little gaps in the blinds that I forgot to close in the midst of yesterday’s love making session, if it could even be called that. I don’t know about Jaz but god damn yesterday was the best I’ve felt in a long ass time and the after effects were just as good. I looked over to Jaz who had her head on my arm using it as a pillow. I meant to take a shower yesterday but when she fell asleep I didn’t have the heart to take my arm away. After all she had been through she deserved to rest.
She looked hella cute sleeping her hair was put up into a bun, her lips were slightly parted and she was breathing lightly. Her head was tilted slightly towards me which meant her neck was on show. There were hickey’s everywhere on her neck, which now I think about it might have been a bad idea since she was gone head home and I knew her dad was going to be there waiting for her. I had just managed to make her pops like me but I knew as soon as he saw the hickey’s all that would be blown to hell. But everything that happened yesterday was worth it, it just felt right. Being here in this moment with Jaz it all just felt right. I just hope that she won’t find out anything before I can tell her myself. I should have told her about it when we first met.
“Shit” I curse louder than I wanted and drape my free arm over my face. This could be the thing that could fuck everything up before it even started. I need to tell her before she thinks all this is a lie or something. God damn Dev fucking things up even behind bars.
“Mmmm” I hear Jaz waking up and it brings me out of my thoughts. I should just focus on what’s in front of me and right now that was Jazmine.
“Hey bae, you aight?” I lean down to capture her lips on mine. I pull back slowly and rub the tip of my nose on hers to bring her out of her daze.
“Well now I am, but you could kiss me again just to make sure” She smiled as I captured her lips again. I pulled back and watched as her smile grew as she looked me in the eyes, I stared right back and knew I could be like this for a long time coming, I just hope that was what she felt as well. Even after all I needed to tell her.
“What time is it?” She curled up into my chest as I reached over her to get my phone that was on the nightstand.
“It’s 2 in the afternoon, we still got some time before we gotta head back” I drop my phone and place my hand on her waist. She sighs and makes circles on my chest.
“Can’t we stay another day” She sighs and looks up at me, with those puppy dog eyes I would have stayed another day.
“Your dad and also my best friend is waiting on us to come back, he must be missing you, mostly me but he still missing you” Jaz laughs and punches my arm and sits up laughing pulling the sheets around her. She reaches up to the band holding the bun and pulls it out making her hair fall. She runs her hand through her tresses and has the other securing the sheets.
“Well what are we going to do today then” She turns back at me with a smirk. In all honesty I know what I wanted to do for the rest of the day, but considering how much she probably would be hurting now it was best the I just kept my thoughts at bay.
“Iono, what you wanna do” I sit up and shuffle to wear she’s sitting on the edge of the bed. I put my legs at either side of her and she leans back onto my chest with a sigh. I lay my head on her left shoulder as she debates what she wants to do.
“Well we can start off by taking a shower and getting something to eat in the mall or something and then the rest is for you to decide.” She toyed with the ring on her finger with a smile on her face. I honestly put a lot of thought into that ring, because even though it was early days I honestly did think she was the one for me. And I would one day be the one she would walk down the aisle to spend the rest of her life with.
“That sounds good to me; we should start off with that shower then. You wanna do that alone or should I join you” It wasn’t meant in a sexual way or nothing, it was meant in a caring way knowing she was a virgin just the night before and well now she wasn’t which must be painful seeing how painful it was when I was breaking her in.
“You could join if you wanted” She started to stand up to make her way to the bathroom. But that wasn’t going to happen. As soon as she stood up I lifted her up and started walking towards the bathroom.
“Put me down Tre, I can walk” she started giggling.
“Well that ain’t gone happen, you’re my wifey now so I’ll treat you like you’re a princess” she just carried on giggling as we made our way to the bathroom. I close the door behind me with my foot and set Jaz down on the counter as I step into the shower and turn it on. Once the temperatures right I pick her up and set her down on the floor and walk her towards the shower.
I step in first to make sure it’s not too hot or cold on my body, once all of that is done I un clamp Jazmine’s hand around the sheets covering her. I raise an eyebrow when she doesn’t let go.
“You gone come in with sheets or something? I ain’t seeing nothing I haven’t already bae. “I’m not sure why she was nervous, but if she was I wasn’t gone force her to do nun. She just sighs and let’s go of the sheets as they pool around her feet. She gets in the shower before I can even see anything.
“Why you gone all shy now for” I peck her on the cheeks as I put my hands on her hips and just looks up at me with a pout and her hands laying on my chest as the water just slips off us both.
“Iono, it’s just weird knowing you can see me. Yesterday was different I was in the moment.” She couldn’t be more beautiful to me right now than in this moment.
“You know I’ll love you regardless, your beautiful” I flick the tip of her knows and she screws her face at me and smiles.
“I love you too” she leans up towards me and kisses me. It was a long one.
“If we continue like this we’ll be in the shower all day.” She just laughs and reaches behind me to get the shower gel.
A couple minutes later.
I step out the shower to get towels for both of us, I unhook then from the back of the door and turn back to see Jaz waiting at the shower door. I just stop to look at how beautiful she looks. Her hair sticking to her back and arms, she catches me looking at her and try’s to cover herself and blushes in attempt.
“Tre! Give me the towel” She walks up to me and try’s to grab the towel from me but I move it away from her. She attempts to grab at it again but fails again. She smiles at me and leans on me chest naked and all and reaches up to kiss me. But before she kisses me she grabs the towel from behind me back and wraps herself up. I stare at her dumb founded that she tricked me like that.
“You can’t win this game playa” I start laughing and wrap the towel around my lower half and make my way over to her.
“Well what can I say, you’re just too good” I bend down to kiss her and she meet’s me half way and pulls my towel of my waist and runs past me into the bedroom.
“You got tricks huh!” I chase after her into the bedroom and finally catch up to her in the living room. We start laughing and gasping as oxygen was making its way back into our lungs. I take the towel and make sure to wrap it round tight and then bend down to peck Jaz on the lips.
“You finished now?” I mock glare at her, she just laughs and nods making her way back to the bedroom.
“So what you finna get me to wear today” She sat on the edge of the bed, legs crossed and everything. I smiled and reached into the drawer where I had hid what I bought.
“This” I handed her the bag. I bought her a black floor length bodycon dress that had slits on the side that joined at the back which showed of her waist and back and it had one slit on the bottom that went up to halfway up her thigh. As soon as I saw it I knew she would look sexy as hell in it, ain’t no one gonna have anything on Jaz in this. I bought her a Pandora bracelet to put on as well and bought her some Channel black creepers that weren’t too high and finally topped then off with a pair of channel earrings and a silver cross necklace.
“This is all for me?” She looked at me uncertain.
“Only the best for you” I smiled at her as she leaned in and laid a number of pecks on my mouth.
“I’ll take that as you like it” I stroke her cheek.
“I love it” She stands up and gathers everything that I bought her.
“You can get changed here” I look at her.
“Yeah I know I can, but I’m not. “ She winks and closes the bathroom door and I just shake my head and laugh at her antics. My life was not going to be boring with her in it.
Few minutes later
“You dressed yet Jaz” I call out to her in the bathroom as I fitted on my Jordan’s. She’d been in there for 15 minutes. I turn around to the bathroom door and see Jazmine standing there. I was right when I had said no one had nothing on her. All her curves were showing in the dress. She looked perfect. She was complementing the dress instead of the other way round. She put her hair into a messy bun and had her fringe out with a middle parting. Her hair was slightly curly which made her look all the more beautiful; she knows how much I loved when her hair was curly. I walked up to her and kissed her on her ruby red lips and held it there for a minute or so. She rubbed her lips together and smiled when we parted and simply stared back at me.
“So I look alright?” She looked up to me with a blush.
“You look perfect.” She giggled and slapped me on my arm playfully.
“You’re not looking too bad yourself may I add” I smirk at her knowing she knew I looked sexy but didn’t want to admit it.
“Should we check out and get going?” I had packed up all of our stuff when she was taking her much needed time in the bathroom. I grabbed my keys and the keys to the room as well as my phone from the night stand and gave them to Jaz to hold as I took a hold of our bags to put in the boot.
“Let’s go then” She started walking to the front door with me behind her checking everything was picked up from the floor when Jaz had decided to give me a strip tease. When we got to the door I did one final check and walked up to the reception to return the keys. Everything was already paid for before I even got here.
“Here’s the key” Jaz said as she handed the keys to the concierge who was working his shift. He didn’t look too happy but I couldn’t give two fucks about his stank attitude. I wasn’t going to give him a tip for shit.
“Come on” I urged Jaz as I made my way to the car with our bags, when we got to the parking lot I walked up to where I had parked the car and put the bags down beside the car as Jaz handed me the keys. I pressed the button to open the boot and as it did I handed the keys to Jaz to hold again so I could pick the bags up and throw it in the boot. Once that was done I made my way over to the driver’s side as Jaz made her way to the passenger. Once all that was done Jaz handed me the keys inside the car and started to buckle herself in as I started the engine.
“You know what you wanna eat yet?” I pulled out the parking lot and started heading to the mall that Jaz wanted to go to.
“Mmmm Iono but I need some coffee or something so let’s head to Starbucks” I nodded at her and started making small talk till we got to the mall. It was bound to have a Starbucks in there somewhere and judging by the amount of cars in the parking lot it was quite busy right now. Through the journey Jaz had been playing Temple Run on my phone nonstop trying to beat my high score.
“You beat it yet?” I turned the engine off and turned to look at her mugging the fuck out the screen. I laughed as she turned slowly to me and shook her head.
“I told you, you can’t beat the champ” I smirked at her. She just playfully smacked her teeth at me and handed me my phone.
“Whatever, let’s go get that much needed coffee” she smiled at me as she opened the door. I looked around the car to see if I had forgotten anything like my wallet or something. When everything seemed to be where it was I jumped out the driver’s seat and closed the door. I looked at my keys and pushed the button that locked the door. Once that was done I walked to where Jaz was standing and held her hand as we made our way to the entrance of the mall.
I don’t know what time I had gotten home from the hospital last night but it was in the early hours of the morning. Ty’s parents had sent us all home to get some rest because everyone was just getting on each other’s nerves waiting for the doctor’s and the police to tell us what was happening. Once the doctor came out and told us that Ty was alright we all went our separate ways knowing that Ty hadn’t died and that Nicole had given birth to a baby boy who her and Lance had named Jeremiah.
Despite my constant refusing Chris had dropped me home; to say it wasn’t awkward would be an understatement. Chris didn’t even try to not make it awkward he didn’t try to talk. The only sound he made was the occasional sniff and cough and that was all I got from him all the way to my house. When I finally got to my house and closed the door to only have Chris drive off I opened my front door to my dad waiting up for me, he was hella pissed at me for not calling him but once I explained the situation it was all good.
I went upstairs to see if Jaz was home yet because I had forgotten to ask my dad while I was downstairs. I knocked on her door first but when there was no answer I opened up the door to see her phone flashing in the middle of her bed. I turned on the lights since the sun wasn’t bright enough to light the room up well enough for me to see.
I walked over to her phone to see that it was untouched for some time, it was unusual for Jazmine to go anywhere without her phone. She was worse than me when it came to it, I would have to update her about all the events that went down today and without a doubt she would be surprised and probably want to visit Ty at the hospital.
“I wander where she went” I blurted out no one in particular but heard the reply of my dad at the doorway that startled me. I turned around to him.
“She went out with that Trever boy to Bolsa Chica State Beach. She should be back today sometime in the evening. You should get to sleep and stop worrying about everything.” I wander why Trever made her leave her phone. I just shrugged and took my dad’s advice to go to sleep.
“Your right, goodnight dad” I kissed him on his cheek on my way out and towards my room, closing the door behind me with a soft click. I don’t even bother with taking of my clothes and get into bed pulling the covers over me as I lay my head down after what seemed like the longest day I’ve ever had. I hadn’t been here a week and already shit like this was going down, something told me that there would be more to come as I drifted off to a long awaited sleep.
Couple hours later
I woke up to my phone buzzing next to me, I just groaned and turned my phone off in an attempt to go back to sleep, but after 15 minutes of tossing and turning I knew that wouldn’t happen. I sat up and scratched my head before getting out of bed and going into the bathroom to do my morning ritual which consisted of me brushing my teeth, then washing my face and pulling up my hair into a messy bun. When all that was done I stripped off yesterday’s clothes and changed into some jean shorts and a crop baseball T-shirt. I slid my feet into my slippers and grabbed my phone off my desk and made my way to Jazmine’s room.
Once I opened the door I got her phone from where I had left it yesterday and unlocked it knowing exactly what I wanted to do. I sat down on the edge of her bed as I dialled Trever’s number from her phone waiting for him to pick up his phone.
“Hello?” He sounded hella manly, how old was he again?
“Hello, Is Jazmine with you?” I got straight to the point.
“Yeah who’s this?”
“Jazmine, her sister” I cussed him out in my mind, why couldn’t he just give Jaz the phone. Nigga be asking question, I mentally smacked my teeth at him. I heard some shuffling of the phone which I presumed was Trever handing the phone to Jaz.
“Hey Nene, why you calling?” She sounded extra happy which meant something happened; I would have to get the details off of her later.
“Why didn’t you take your phone, everyone’s been trying to reach you for the past 2 days.” I knew she was screwing up her face by now at my tone.
“I ain’t take it because Tre told me not to since we were on a date and he wanted no distractions, knowing how bad I am with my phone. Why’s everyone tryna contact me, what happened now?”
“Well Nicole went into labour and had her baby then Ty got stabbed nshit” I stated matter of factly. There was no need to beat around the bush.
“What Ty got stabbed, by who?” She all but screamed into the phone, making me take the phone away from my ears just to make sure I could still hear by the end of it.
“We don’t know yet but the police are involved and everything, he’s alright don’t worry. It’s gonna take more than someone stabbing Ty for him to die.” I tried to lighten the mood, and it seemed to work when Jaz started to laugh.
“That’s true, the nigga’s cray cray. But tell Nicole I said congratulations and all. And tell everyone who was trying to call me that I’m sorry and tell Ty I’ll come visit him as soon as I’m back.”
“Fuck am I, a messenger?” Jazmine just laughed in the phone.
“Please.” She knew I would do it without her even having to ask, her being my little sister and all everything was an automatic yes and she used it to her advantage very well.
“Yeah yeah, when you coming home?”
“Um iono but I’ll be home before you know it” I could hear her smiling into the phone.
“Aight, don’t be too late.”
“Okay mom” She laughed into the phone.
“Aight bye.” She said bye and hung up the phone probably telling her boyfriend about what happened and all.
I handed Tre back his phone while I picked up my frappuccino and drank some once I put my drink down Tre looked at me expectantly and I tilted my head to the side knowing perfectly well he wanted to know what was going down back home, since I did scream out during my conversation.
“Don’t be tilting your head like you don’t know what I’m asking you” He mock glared at me for a moment before taking a sip of my frappuccino.
“Uh excuse you” I raised my eyebrow at him; he just laughed and continued to drink. I knew this game he was playing all too well.
“You best get to talking or this is gone be gone by the time you start. It tastes nice by the way.” He just continued to sip on my drink.
“Well Nicole and Lance had a baby boy yesterday and Ty got stabbed today in the early hours of the morning. Ty’s ok and the police and all are involved and that’s about it. Can I have my drink back now?” I reach for my drink and take it from Tre before he reached the halfway mark.
“Word? Do you want to head back home now so you can visit him?” In all honesty I did, I didn’t want Ty to think I ain’t care just because I was with my man. But I didn’t want to ruin what Tre had planned for the day.
“Don’t worry we can always go on another date, so we can go if you want. If we are we need to go to the store so we can buy some food for the journey.” It was like this nigga was reading my mind, I couldn’t believe he was all mine.
“You sure you don’t mind” I said as he picked up his frappuccino and phone and held out his hand for me to take so we could go. He just smiled at me and nodded as I took his hand. How was he so perfect? He was honestly nothing compared to Chris, when Chris me I thought I would be with him right now sharing this moment but it was Tre that was with me. Chris had lost his chance with me and right now I couldn’t care less because I was with someone who actually cared enough to tell me how he felt upfront and I loved that about him. I love everything about him.
We went to the grocery store that was in the mall and bough a lot of snacks like Cheeto’s, Oreos, Twinkies and some other stuff like Cream soda and what not. When we got to the parking lot Tre opened the door and put all the food on the back seat as I got in the passenger seat. When that was all done he climbed into the car and put his seat belt on sliding the key into the usual place. When all that was done he leaned over to my seat and planted a kiss on my lips. It wasn’t anything heated or anything but it was simply nice. Every time he kissed me it sent off fireworks and butterflies in me. If that reaction didn’t tell me I loved him then I don’t know what did.
“You ready?” He leaned back to his side and turned the key to turn on the engine. I simply smiled and nodded at him. He smiled back and drove out his parking space and made his way onto the main road as we set off back home.
This date would always be remembered as it was the place I was Tre’s official girl. It truly was the best date ever. But as they say all good things must some to an end.
