I woke up to my sister rolling onto my chest . I rubbed my eyes looking at the time that read 3:21 before I got out of bed and walked out my room . I seen the light on where I spotted my mama at the table with her head in her hands as bills surrounded her .
I rubbed her back , I know were struggling no matter how hard she tries to hid it .
I know she couldn’t pay the rent and asked for an extension .
She don’t know I know tho .
Her head shot up as she quickly picked up the bills .
Mama - whatchu doing up baby ? You know you got school .
Me - Imma get a job and h-
Mama - no she said cutting me off
Me - mama -
Mama - No Aaliyah were fine . All I want you to do is go to school she said
Me - but mama - she cut me off again giving me the look , which told me drop the conversation . I did just that .
Mama - Now go back to sleep she instructed I nodded and kissed her cheek before walking off .
I walked into my small room , that I shared with my sister . There was a queen size bed and a dresser with a small tv on it . That’s all that could fit .
I had some shoes lines up on the floor .
I climbed back in bed besides her and closed my eyes in hope to fall back asleep but I couldn’t thinking about all the bills .
I am gonna get a job and help out whether she likes it or not .
My alarm ranged so I got up and took a shower doing my hygiene .
I stepped out with a towel wrapped around my body and let my sister get in as I did my hair and put on my clothes .
((Out fit in mm))
Even tho were broke my mama make she were not bummy and my Bestfriend Deja gives me her old clothes .
I flat ironed my sew in and slayed my edges before walking downstairs .
My mom was gone for work already , she leaves around 4 .
Me and Lay ((Layla)) ate before I locked up the house and walked down the hallway that smelled like faint piss .
I walked Layla to school and hugged her before proceeding to the bus stop to go to mines .
I hopped out the bus just as Deja was pulling up in her car . She got out and hugged me
Deja - You look nice
I smiled thanking her as we walked into school . I got a lot of stares that I ignored .
I don’t got time for these ratchet hoes and wanna be thugs .
I put the code into my locker and stood on my tippy toes to reach the top shelf
I heard laughter
Deja - you just so short she said grabbing the math book for me .
Me - yaya whatever
She seen her boyfriend and walked off .
I stuffed the book into my bag before my locker was slammed shut and my books all hit the floor .
I looked up seeing Mary and Kacey , the school baddest girls . They been bullying me for the longest .
Kacey - Broke lil bitch she scoffed I was silent as I picked up my stuff and walked off .
The bell ranged dismissing class and I met up with Deja getting in her car
Deja - lets to the mall ?
I shook my head no
I don’t have mall money
Deja - I’ll pay
I rejected her offer , I don’t like people buying things for me .
Deja - why ?
Me - I gotta get my sister I said as she bagged out the parking lot .
Lay hopped in and buckled up .
I was confused when we pulled up to be mall
Me - Deja I told you-
Deja - man just get out
I obediently got out and held Lay hand , following her .
*1 hr later*
We walked out of forever 21 and started walking towards Pacsun .
I sat down my feet hurt .
Deja - come on
Me - my fucking feet hurt girl I’ll be right here
She nodded and walked off with Lay as I sat there pulling out my phone .
I walked out of Pacsun with my boys Devan and James
Me - shut up James I said shaking my head . He joke around too much .
We walked past some chairs and I spotted a girl sitting down , focused on her phone .
I stopped and took in her features , she was stunning .
Devan - what are you looking at ?
He followed my eyes before shaking his head
James - a black girl really ?
I shrugged watching as a little girl ran to her .
She looked at the girl and flashed her a smile that I instantly fell in love with as she stood up .
Devan - come on James he said as they proceeded to walking off .
What’s so bad with black girls ?
She’s beautiful .
I felt James tug my arms and we walked off proceeding to shop but all I thought about was her .
I wonder what’s her name ?
I swiped my black card and grabbed the bag walking out .
I bumped into somebody and caught them before they fell
Me - I’m sorry
?- it’s ight a soft voice said
I looked at the girl and a grin appeared on my face seeing it was the same beauty from before .
Me - what’s your name , beautiful ?
? - my name I-
? - Sissy come on ! The little girl yelled to her
? - Alrigh’ girl I’m comin’ she replied
She had some thick accent that I instantly admired
She grabbed a bag and went to walk away but I grabbed her arm , making her look back .
Me - what’s your name ? Can I get your number ? I asked nervously .
I never talked to a black girl before .
She raised her eyebrow at me before scanning my outfit .
My face instantly frowned up as she shook her head no , pulling away from my grip .
? - uhm bye she said and proceeded to walk off .
Her hips swayed back and fourth .
She wasn’t skinny like most of the girls where I’m from , she had meat .
She had a funny , sexy walk that I liked .
I could tell she didn’t walk like that on purpose tho .
Devan - Travis come on . Why would you want her ? Look at her . She’s black .
James - right she’s broke , ugly and talk ghetto . Come on man , she could never be with you they said shaking their head at her .
Lay - Sissy come on ! Lay yelled to me
Me - alright girl I’m coming I replied back grabbing my bag to walk away but an arm grabbed me back , making me look back at the white boy who caught me before I fell .
?- what’s your name ? Can I get your number ? He asked nervously .
I can tell his ass never talked to a black girl before .
I raised my eyebrows scanning his outfit .
He had on some khaki joggers with a red polo shirt and some red converse
This preppy lil white boy want my number ?
Nah he joking .
Don’t nobody ever want my number
Me - uhm bye I said walking off
?- why would you want her ? Look at her she’s black I heard from behind me
? - right she’s broke , ugly and talk ghetto . Come on man , she could never be with you I heard another voice say making me shake my head .
