Chapter 2

I woke up to a loud noise. I rolled over looking for my phone to see what time it was. It was 2 in the morning. I squinted my eyes as I saw Damion come through my room door. He shut the door and laid on top of me.

"No no NO! Damion NO! I'm sorry for everything I did. I swear I won't do it again." He wrapped his hand in my hair and yanked it causing me to cry out in pain.

"You need to learn your lesson." He said, still holding my hair.

"Damion nooooo!" He got up and pulled on my clothes. I fought back.

"Please stop! STOP!" I yelled. He slung me across the room like I was a ragdoll. My head hit the corner of my bedroom door as I collapsed to the floor.

"Please stop." I whispered. My head was spinning and my vision was getting blurry. He stripped me down until I was naked. He was already out of his clothes. He dragged my body towards him, causing my head to slam into the floor, lifted up my legs and rammed into me.

"NOOOO STOPPP!" I whimpered and started to cry. He glared at me making his eyes go all the way black. He slapped me across the face then went harder. My vision started to black out.

"Please..." My vision went completely black and I passed out.

I woke up with a huge headache. I felt the knot on the back of my head and hissed. There was blood on my pillow and hand. I looked up and looked at my phone, 8:13. I got up and practically ran down stairs to hurry and cooked something to eat. My head was spinning and I kept tripping over everything, even my own two feet.

By the time I was finished I heard my mother and Damion talking so I put everything on their plates and went up stairs to get my clothes out and do my hygiene. I wore some acid washed jeans, a black crop top, and my white Air Force Ones. I went back into the bathroom and used the First Aid kit to take care of my knot. I let my hair stay wavy and down to cover it. My hair reached down to my butt, which is the original length of my hair because I'm mixed with Jamaican, African-American, and Mexican. I know a weird combination right?

I got my phone, charger, laptop, earplugs, and my school carry bag. I left out the house grateful that I just got my car back from the shop. I am in no condition to drive but I need to go. I swung by Keem's house and picked her up. I stopped at the store to get some snacks for our party today.

"Where's your dress, cap, and gown?" Kash said picking out some snacks. I picked up some fruit snacks.

"Its in my personal private locker. You know the ones we had to pay $50 for?"

"Oh, well I'm wearing my tux. I'm retwisting have my dreads later on." She said messing with her hair.

"Cute." I had other shit on my mind, like the pain I was going through.

"You ok?"

"Uh y-yeah."

"What happened?" I chuckled.

"I'm ok Keem."

"That bitch did...OH HELL NO!" I shushed her.

"Keem it's okay. Shush."

"It's not ok Toya! This shit keeps happening to you and your mama doesn't do shit about it! I swear I'm calling the law on them. That's rape, child abuse, molestation, attempted murder, and a whole list of other shit."

"I'm leaving soon. Everything is going to be ok. God got it." She scoffed.

"Fuck god. Where's he at when all of this is happening? I keep telling you he ain't real!"

"Look you believe what you believe and I believe what I believe." She threw her hands up in defense.

"Whatever. Where you going after graduation?"

"The graduation is at 5 so I'll stay with you till then since we get out at 11:25. Also grab some hot fries and takis. And hurry up we gotta go." I said as we rushed to get checked out.

After we left we headed to school. Around 9:45 they called for all seniors to be in the gym. Me, Keem, and some bitch who been stalking me every day this week went to the gym. Keem meet up with Ra'Shonda to confront her about some shit she put online last night. So I guess its a good time to talk to what's her name.

"Hey." I said as we sat down.

"Hi. Sorry for following y'all around but you look so damn familiar." She said.

"It's cool. You do look familiar. Where you from?"

"Originally from Miami."

"Oh really? I am too."

"Yeah. I used to live in College Park." I gasped and playfully hit her.

"Shut up! I did too! What's your name?"

"Everyone calls me Kash but my name is Ky'Mia Jones."

"Oh my god! It's me, Toya!" She gasped and hugged me.

"Bitch I thought that was you but you look so different now." We continued to talk until it was time for us to go home.


I walked across the stage smiling about to cry because I was so happy. I took pics of Kash and Keem walking across the stage. When we were done Kash took me and Keem out to eat at Bonefish. We chilled and drunk a lil bit before I left to go to work.

"I gotta go to work y'all much love." They said there goodbyes. I got in my car and took off towards my job. When I got there I went to my personal dressing room. My stripper name is Rainn because I make it do just that every night I'm here. I got dressed in my pink Jaguar print thong set. I walked to the back door to get ready to get called.

"Hey babe!" My fuck buddy, Veronica, said.

"Hey boo." I said blowing her a kiss and walking on stage as soon as Work by Rhianna came on I went up and down the pole shaking my ass.

When I got up I went to count my money. I had $4,000. I was only up there for 30 minutes but we had big ballers tonight. I gathered my money and made my way to the back. I hid my money in my bag before walking to the main floor to give lap dances.

I walked out of my job in my regular clothes, I was finally off. I got in my car and drove home. I walked in the house and shut the door. I cut on the lights to see that there was a note on the fridge.

"We are going to LA for a business meeting. We'll be back in a month. Don't go in my room bitch. Signed Damion." I read out loud. I balled up the note and threw it in the trash. Home alone, finally. I haven't had a break in what seems like years. My phone rung as I looked for something to eat.

"Hello?" I answered.

"Hey, you off work?" Keem asked.


"What you doing?"

"About to cook some spaghetti." I took the ingredients out.

"You must be home alone. I'll be over in 20."

"Ight." I hung up and turned on my Apple Music playlist. Keep Your Head Up by Chaka Khan came on. I started singing along and cooking.
