I woke up to Layla climbing on the couch next to us .
Me - GoodMorning baby I said yawning as she smiled at me
Layla - Mornin ’ Travis she said as Liyah started to move on my chest
Layla - Liyah I want to see mommy . When she come back ?
Liyah - uhmmmm we’re gonna see her after school
Me - now come on , get up . We got to get ready for school I said .
Liyah said nothing but just climbed out of my lap and walked off with Layla behind her .
Me - I’ll be back , I need to go get ready .
Liyah - alr - no Travis she said quickly coming back to me and grabbing my arm
Me - what’s wrong ?
Liyah - no Travis , don’t leave me . We’re gonna get ready fast she said looking at me with her big brown eyes .
I nodded ok but she still didn’t let go , she held my arm tighter .
Me - I’m not gonna leave Love
Liyah - Alr she said and let me go .
She got ready then got Layla ready real fast before we left to my house so I could do the same .
When I walked through my door Maria eyed her .
Maria - how everything Chica ? She asked
Aaliyah just shrugged .
When we made it to school , after dropping Layla off I turned the car off and Liyah just sat there in silence
Me - you alright ? I asked as she looked at her phone
She put her hands on her face and sniffled
Liyah - I’m fine Travis
Me - you sure ?
Liyah - yes she said and got out the car
I got out the car and Travis did the same . He latched his hand onto mines and we both walked into school to his locker . I had everything I needed .
I dead ass do not want to be here , I just want to go see my momma .
I heard his voice and my heart rate picked up .
James - what’s up Travis ! When I looked back I seen him with Devan .
Travis - Heyy James he replied and James looked me in my eyes before he smiled which made me really uncomfortable .
I grabbed on to Travis arm as he shut his locker
Travis - are you ok ? He whispered
Me - no Travis . I want to go I said quickly
Travis - ok . Is it fine if I talk to them for a minute ? I nodded and looked away even though I wanted to tell him no .
James and Devan starting talking to me but I noticed how James kept looking at Liyah .
Liyah - Hurry up please Travis she said and when I looked down at her I seen she was almost in tears .
Me - I got to go I told them and grabbed her hand walking off
Me - Aaliyah baby are you ok ? I asked .
Her lips starting quivering and a tear slid down her cheek as she nodded
Liyah - give me a minute she said and rushed into the bathroom
I sighed wondering what’s wrong .
Why was James looking at her like that ?
Devan walked back up to me
Devan - Travis is she alright ? Why is she crying ?
I took a deep breathe
Me - she’s going through some family issues right now
He furrowed his eye brows
Devan - is that all ? He asked
Devan - you sure it isn’t something else that happened ? He asked hinting towards something else .
Last night when he was texting me it was like he wanted to tell me something
Devan - did she say anything about James ?
I shook my head no
Me - no why ?
Devan - no reason he said and walked off .
I turned my head to James who was at the end of the hallway with Melena .
He looked back at me and smiled .
Is there something they need to tell me ?
Me and Liyah don’t have all of our classes together but the couple we did was spent with her being quiet as I rubbed her leg .
She wasn’t saying much , just doing her work .
When lunch time came around me her and Deja walked into the lunchroom .
Me - come sit with me I said when I noticed she was walking to a table different than where I sat with Devan , James and some more of my friends at .
She shook her head no
Me - why not ?
Liyah - I don’t want to be at a table with your friends Travis she said lowly
Me - please , just today ?
She scratched her head before giving in and walking to the table .
I know she’s not a fan of being around my friends a lot
James - Hi Aaliyah he said to her as she sat down .
Deja - bitch don’t try being cool with her she said as Liyah grabbed onto my arm tightly
Me - you ok ? I asked
The whole lunch period was just awkward . Liyah eventually ended up getting up and walking away without any explanation .
James was just acting weird , smiling more and shit and Devan was looking at me . Still acting like he wanted to tell me something .
Me - Liyah where are you going ?
She said nothing but just kept walking with Deja .
I sighed and got up going to follow after her
Devan - uhm Travis can I talk to you ?
Me - not right now -
Devan - it’s important .
I looked back at him and he had a guilty face .
James - Devan keep your fucking mouth closed he said through gritted teeth .
Me - what’s up ?
Devan shook his head
Devan - nevermind Travis
I shook my head annoyed and walked off .
They’re both hiding something from me and I know what they’re hiding is gonna piss me off .- Do y’all think Devan is gonna tell him what happened ??
- Do y’all think Devan is gonna tell him what happened ??
