The three of us ate in silence. I watched them both and I couldn't read what was on their minds. "I'm going to run upstairs and finish getting ready for the day," I said this hoping that if I left the room they would talk. Because it was very obvious that something was on their minds.
"Is everything good man?" I asked Marcus. I could tell something was on his mind. I dont know if it was, the simple fact that I was here when he arrived or if something else was going on.
"Not really." He said.
"You want to talk about it?" He took a deep breath.
"We have a problem."
"We?" I asked him.
"Yeah we, your whatever the fuck she is Crystal and Tiffany. Are up to something."
"Why would you say that?" Marcus looked back at where Candace would walk in. Then he looked back at me.
"I was at the pool hall last night and they ended up showing up there. Of course, they made their way over to me and wanted to have a game. I said whatever and I ended up in a game with the two of them. They were both throwing themselves at me all night. Basically offing to sleep with me. I mean with both of them at once." My eyes got large. "But here is the kicker, they wanted you there as well." I snickered and just shook my head. "I'm telling you man this is not going to go over well." It took me having to leave last night. Just to get them off my back."
"I'm already sick of Crystal," I said.
"Yeah, well get ready because now its Crystal and Tiffany."
"Candace cant find out about this," I said and Marcus looked over at me.
"You think I dont know that?"
"Do you really think they are going to be that big of a problem?" I asked Marcus. He looked around the room again. Then pulled his phone out of his pocket. He opened it and handed it over to me. There were tons of naked pictures of Crystal and Tiffany. "Fuck, my phone is in her room. I took off from the bar and headed up to Candace's room. I was too late as I opened the door and there stood Candace. She had my phone in her hands. I just stood there and then Marcus was right behind me. She turned her head and looked at us. "I can explain," I said as I started to walk into the bedroom. She didn't say anything as she handed me over my phone. Then she crossed her arms. Marcus joined us in the room.
I looked at my phone and just like Marcus's phone. It was full of naked pictures of Crystal and Tiffany, together. I just took a deep breath. I looked over at Marcus. "I'll kill them," I said. "Cans this is not what you think."
"And what am I thinking?" She asked me. I turned and looked at her.
"Do you think I would have been here last night. If I was fucking with these hoes?" I asked her and just looked her right in the eyes. Marcus went next to her and handed her his phone.
"They pulled the same bullshit with me. I promise we haven't touched them." Candace took his phone. She handed the phone back to Marcus and then took a seat on her bed. I went and sat next to her and so did Marcus.
"They are going to be a problem," She said.
"Do you believe us?" Marcus asked her.
"I do." That was a relief. To hear her say that.
"It's not going to be a problem. Once I call them out in front of everyone." I said all pissed the hell off now. Marcus and Candace both looked up at me.
"You're not going to cause a scene, are you?" Candace asked me.
"Hell yeah, I'm going to. These bitchs are all about the scene. I'm going to humiliate them." Marcus got a huge grin on his face and I knew he was going to back me up. Candace just shook her head.
Monday rolled around and Marcus and I were ready to cause was bullshit. We picked Candace up and headed to school. All it was going to take was for these bitches to walk upon us, and I knew they would. I parked the car and we got out. Some guy friends of ours rolled up and Candace's friend Missy met us at the front gate. Candace stayed close to Missy. We got out to the quad. We were all laughing and just talking when I saw them out of the corner of my eye. I looked over at Marcus who just nodded at me. I looked over at Candace and Missy sitting on the bricks, lost in conversation. I was sure Candace let Missy know what was about to go down. It had to be done and I knew Marcus and I could be real assholes.
"Hey, guys." I heard Tiffany's annoying voice ring out. She likes to be the center of attention. You're about the be that here in a second. She then looked over at Marcus and me. "Good morning Mason, good morning Marcus," Tiffany said and then Crystal joined her side and they both had shit-eating grins on their faces.
"Yeah, what's so good about it?" I asked them. I was now close to them and Marcus joined my side.
"Well, I'm sure you had a good nites sleep last night." Crystal opened her big mouth.
"Why is that?" Marcus asked her with his arms crossed. I glanced over at Candace. She and Missy were just sitting quietly. I looked back at Tiffany and Crystal. The looks on their faces were of confusion. These bitches actually think we would have wanted them.
"Well, I." Crystal started to think. Marcus made a mimicking nose at her.
"What's wrong Crystal? Cat got your tongue. Oh, wait a minute." Marcus can really be a fucking prick and I knew they were in for it. I got a huge grin on my face. "Are you happy about the ugly pictures you and Tiffany sent to me and my boy yesterday?" Marcus started to laugh. "You really thought showing your ugly naked asses to us was going to make us want to hit it?" The crowd that now covered the quad was in a roar of laughter. I pulled my phone out.
"Yeah check this shit out." I pulled the pictures out and showed it off. Candace and Missy sat there with their mouths open.
"I see some flab flapping in this picture." Someone hollered out. The laughter continued to go. Both Crystal and Tiffany looked horrified.
"When are you two going to let it sink in those heads of yours? We dont fucking want you!" I yelled in there faces. Candace stood up and walked over to me. She placed her hand on my arm.
"Enough." She whispered to me.
"Your lucky my girl here takes pity on you. Because I would have made this much worse on you if it wasn't for her." I snapped. We watched as both Tiffany and Crystal took off. The crowd was still laughing.
"Burn!" Someone hollered out.
"You think they get it now?" Marcus asked as we all took a seat.
"I think they have to," Missy said.
"I think it was a little much," Candace said.
"Listen, they are both so full of themselves. It had to be done." I said. She just nodded at us.
"You guys crushed them," Missy said.
"Good, damn hoes," Marcus said. I just laugh and got punched in the arm. Candace just looked at me as I rubbed my arm.
"Ouch," I said still laughing.
"Can you delete the pictures now?" Candace asked us. I handed my phone over to her and Marcus did the same thing. She got rid of all the messages and pictures. She smiled as she handed our phone back to us. I kissed her forehead and Marcus just hugged her. I looked around the quad and everyone started to head to their classes. I wonder if Tiffany and Crystal took off. I had no intention of allowing anyone to come in between Candace and myself. I knew I was going to catch hell when I got home. I didn't give a fuck.
The day went on without any problems. None of us saw Crystal or Tiffany for the rest of the day. It was actually a very good day. I knew I needed to head home and face the music. I dropped Marcus and Cans off at her house and promised I'd be back later. Candace was worried about me. I promised her I was going to be fine. I parked the car and got out. I walked inside only to find my stepmother, her sister, and Crystal sitting in the living room. Crystal was crying. Oh, here we go. I said to myself. I crossed my arms and leaned on the wall. Come on, bring it. I said to myself. My stepmother turned and looked over at me. "What do you have to say for yourself?" She asked me.
"Do you think what you did was funny?" My stepmother's sister asked me. I nodded my head.
"Yes, I do," I said. Crystal's mouth fell open. "Tell your daughter to stop being a whore and sending me and my best friend naked pictures of herself to us." I snapped out. All three mouths fell open.
"He is lying. I would never do that." Crystal said. Damn it, I let Candace delete the pictures to prove it. I just rolled my eyes.
"My daughter would never." I cut her off.
"Your daughter is a whore and she is pissed that I didn't want her stupid ass." I looked over at Crystal. "You and your dumb friend better back off and leave me and Marcus alone. This is my finale warning." I snapped and started to walk out of the room.
"Mason wait!" I heard my stepmother holler out. I stopped in the hallway. I turned and looked at her.
"What?" I snapped.
"I think you need to stay home and..." I cut her off.
"I already told you once. You will not control me. I hate you, understand that. When I turn eighteen, you will never see me again. Go take your ass out there and find yourself some other man to sink your claws into. This money wagon is done." I grabbed my keys and took off.
