Miceal: Mom

Sylvia: Remember his Father liked you not me so shut up and do what you do best!!!! NOTHING!!!!

Hearing that come from Ms. Sylvia was shocking even though Melana could pull the worse out of an Angel I mean Ms. Sylvia is so classy she always wear a pretty elegant dress with a cardigan and some nice low heel she always wear a broach close to her shoulder or in the middle and she has these nice pretty hats she wears all the time she is milk chocolate beautiful smooth skin her hair is black shiny and healthy her nails are always done and she always wears a pandora bracelet with the charms half way filled she is medium tall slim but curvy she has the essence of a queen and I love her for that.

Melana: I don't give a damn how you feel about me I still don't want the hoe child in my house .. This is embarrassing and she is a disappointment

Miceal: Aye chill out you doing too much it's not here fault she here I want her here

Nevaeh: Okay look first off Hi everyone my name is Nevaeh I am 24 and just literally found out I had a Father I mean no disrespect to anyone I am just here trying to find out more of where I come from I did want anything out of this I just want to get to know you all that's it I promise and Miss Melana I know this has to be hard on you but trust me you have nothing to worry about on this side of town when it comes to me I just want to know you all not wreck a house hold but since that seems to be happening I am gone I don't want to stay where I am not welcomed. So Hunter is it?

Hunter: Yes

Nevaeh: I am sorry to keep bothering you but please can you take my bags back to the car I am ready to go home please.

She walked out basically running to the not wanting people to see her tears. See it took a lot for Nevaeh to keep her composure.

Nevaeh: Come on girl deep breaths do let these people break you come on you can handle this.. come on stop crying I know you want to beat they .... No don't even gone there you are better than that

She says to her self rocking back forth wiping the tears from her eyes then she see Miceal run to the car and began to lock the doors so he couldn't get in

Miceal: Hunter unlock the door

Hunter: Sorry sir the keys are in the car

Miceal: Really!!!!

She grabs the keys and puts the alarm on the car with tears running down her face she is glad the windows are tinted so he can't see her face or the pain she was feeling

Miceal: Nevaeh Please!!!! Don't go I- please don't go stay please

Nevaeh: No

She whispers so he cant hear her

Miceal: I am sorry I wasn't expecting them to act like this

Nevaeh: Me neither

She whispers

Miceal: I am gone work on them but please don't go I want you to stay

Nevaeh: I want to stay

She whispers

Miceal: I want to know you

Nevaeh: I want to know you too

She whispers

Then Miceal puts his hands on the window and press his head against the window and then he felt a hand on his shoulder so he looked up to see Golden

Golden: Let me try please

Golden: Hey girly I am sorry on behalf of my sister they can be super rude and you didn't deserve that. I mean its not like you asked to be here you cant help the fact you was conceived and it is our blood that run through your body I know you probably don't want to talk to everybody so I was wondering if I can join you and um I got chocolate and apple juice

Nevaeh chuckles a little and thinks for a second then she unlocks the door for Golden to come in

Golden: Daddy I got this

Then she gets in the car and looks at Nevaeh face

Golden: Its okay I came prepared for this so here you go

She handed Nevaeh the napkin so she could clean up her face

Golden: For along time I was always the awkward one .. My sisters called me the FedEx child.. So I know how you feel but um until they get use to you .. You got me so I am going to tell you like I was told. Get your shit together brush this off and move on. Now here take this. Now take this chocolate drink this apple juice take a deep breath. Now come here.

Then Golden grab Nevaeh and hugged her tight and sat there with her they ate chocolate and giggled

Golden: So does this mean you are staying ?

Nevaeh: Hell Yeah I'm staying

Golden: Well let's ride Clyde

Nevaeh: Alrighty Bonnie

And with that Her and Golden walked out.

Hunter: Are we leaving Ms. Noel

Nevaeh: No

He smiled

Hunter: Okay

And while they were walking back in Miceal was yelling at the girls until he heard them walking in and then everyone was silent

Nevaeh: Um Ms. Sylvia I will take the cottage

Miceal: Wait no its nothing in there but old stuff

Ms. Sylvia: Yes that's true but if you insist you can have everything in there

Nevaeh: Wow thank you are so nice

And she hugged her. Everyone was shocked

Golden: I will stay with her too and that gives a chance to get the hell out of these four walls

Miceal chuckles

Miceal: Sure Golden

Ms. Sylvia: Perfect match

Golden left to go pack and Nevaeh goes and sit in the living room by the window so Ms. Sylvia goes and join her

Nevaeh: So Ms. Sylvia can I ask you a question

Ms. Sylvia: Why yes dear. What is it

Nevaeh: Why me?

Ms. Sylvia: Well I saw you

Nevaeh: What do you mean?

Ms. Sylvia: I heard you praying. I was sleep and I heard you praying in the middle of the night. You ask God to help you because this load is heavy

Nevaeh thought back and got a little emotional

[Back to Nevaeh Prayers 2 months ago]

(Nevaeh's Thoughts)

Nevaeh: Dear God I know I try not to complain a lot and I am trying my best to keep my bed above water but Lord I need help trying to keep things stable Lord help me financially I want to make sure my mommy token care of and my family straight I just want to be a blessing but I don't want anything you don't want I want what you have for me .. And in everything Lord I want to maintain a pure heart and the right spirit

This made Nevaeh teary eyed and she had to take a deep breath so she could get her self together. And she turned around and look Ms. Sylvia

Nevaeh: Thank you

Sylvia: No my dear thank you. Now come along you got to get ready to go to the cottage and between me and you can have everything in that place okay.

Nevaeh: But I thought this stuff was old or whatever

Sylvia: For some odd reason I think you will enjoy the things you see in there those are my old things

Nevaeh: I am honored

She says with a smile holding Mrs. Sylvia hand

Golden: Okay I am ready. Lets blow this joint

Belle': She is so corny its sickening

Golden was smiling but when she heard that she put her head down starting to look sad

Nevaeh: Well I like it hey Golden I am corny too

She says as she looked at Golden and smiled with a wink which made Golden giggle

Hunter: Ladies you ready

Nevaeh: Yes sir

And they left to get in the car

Sylvia: Hunter wait

Hunter: Yes Ma'am

Sylvia: I am coming too

Hunter: After you

So after everyone was in the car they start driving and all you heard from the backseat was laughter and loud talking and all Hunter can was smile.

Sylvia: Why are you smiling son

Hunter: Oh nothing ma'am

Sylvia: Well in order to fool me you would have to keep your eyes on the road

Hunter: Sorry

Sylvia: Don't be

Then she smirked and looked away. Now almost close to the cottage the laughter and talk gets louder. Then the car stop and Hunter looks back locking eyes with Nevaeh

Hunter: Well ladies we here

He says smiling and blushing a bit then he gets out the car and grabs the bags before coming to get them

Golden: Wow

Nevaeh: What

Golden: I never knew Hunter smile or talk he is always so serious and quiet

Nevaeh: Really now ..

Golden: Yes!!!

Sylvia: Well Darling sometimes people change

Golden: Right

Hunter opens the door for Ms. Sylvia then goes open the door letting Golden so they walk to the door then Ms. Sylvia turns around to see where Nevaeh was and then she taps Golden to look at what she was looking at.

Hunter runs and opens the door for Nevaeh reaching for her hand and she gave it to him and he looks at her

Nevaeh: You want to say something

Hunter: Ms. Nevaeh if you need anything I am here to help

Neveah: Okay

Hunter: Here is my card call me any time I am available .. I mean I'm not but you know if you need .. cause I

Nevaeh: Hunter it's okay I get it and thank you

He blushes and walks her to the door

Hunter: I think you will like this place

Nevaeh: We shall see

Hunter: Well Ms. Nevaeh here is where I leave you for now

Nevaeh: Well first stop calling me Ms. Nevaeh

Hunter: So what do I call you

Nevaeh: You can call me Lily that's what my friends call me

Hunter: Okay then Lily, See you later

Nevaeh: For sure

And she walks in the house and he watches her then he smiles and walks away.

When Nevaeh walks in the front entrance her breath was token away to her it was basically a mini castle with a marble stair case and island style kitchen black and silver with black appliance's all electric of course the living room was spacious with a lot of natural light with sheer curtains black leather furniture a sectional to be exact with a love seat on the other side of the room with marble floors and a fuzzy black rug in the middle

Golden: Come see your room

Nevaeh: There's more

Sylvia: Yes

She walks up the stairs down the hall to this big door room where she opens the door to see lots of sunlight coming from the windows all around the room especially by the balcony which gives a view of the land where the flowers and the trees are. Then she turns towards the closet where she runs to and opens to find out it is a walk in closet filled with lots clothes and jewelry and shoes

Nevaeh: OH MY GOD!!!! This is beautiful

Sylvia: And its all yours

Nevaeh: REALLY!!!!!!!!!

Sylvia: Yes it was my old room and its only right if you have it with all the clothes and stuff too

Nevaeh gets teary eye and just hugs Ms. Sylvia tight

Nevaeh: Thank you

Sylvia: You welcome dear

So then Ms. Sylvia decided to leave and let them get comfortable in they're new home.

Golden: So tell me more about you

Nevaeh: What you want to know

Golden: Everything !!

Nevaeh: Well my favorite color is Pink I love food all kinds I am a music head and I like to work

Golden: You are interesting

Nevaeh: Now your turn

Golden: My favorite color is Yellow I love food too and music and I am a homebody..

And literally they talked all night then fell asleep on the couch. So Nevaeh woke up and went outside and start walking around embracing the wind and she runs into Miceal who was running

Miceal: Nevaeh hi .. how was your night

Nevaeh: Peaceful and fun with Golden

Miceal: Is that right she is normally an introvert

Nevaeh: Or maybe it's those girls who pick with her every time she talk

He looks at Nevaeh

Nevaeh: Yup you sure do

Miceal: Well I need to show you show somethings so do me a favor get dressed and I will have Hunter come and pick you up

She smiled
