I walked into Deja house and up to her room silently .
She was sitting up watching tv with Lay sleep on the side of her
Deja - how was it ?
Me - good I told her slipping in the bed as my phone beeped with people asking for “candy” ((drugs)) and closed my eyes .
Me - wake me up in 10 minutes I said and she nodded
As soon as I closed my eyes it was like she shook me to get up
Me - that was 10 minutes ?
She nodded and I groaned as I got up putting on some black jeans and clothes
Deja- where you going ?
I looked at her , she don’t know I sell either
Me - home to let my mama in cause I got her key I said half lying .
Deja - you coming back ?
Me - in the morning I said walking to her door
Deja - take my keys ? She said throwing them to me
Me - thank you
Deja - no problem , love you
Me - love you too I said walking downstairs and getting in the house .
I went home , opened the door for my mama and grabbed my bag driving to the block to sell .
Ain’t no sleeping , time to make money .
I laid in bed with one hand in my boxers looking at my phone .
It been a whole month since me and Liyah date . We text from time to time but the messages be simple or I don’t get a reply .
I shook my head getting up as I heard a knock on my door .
I walked down seeing James and Devan at the door .
I let them in and we sat down
Devan - wassup Trav ? he said
me - Wassup I said on my phone
James - Yall wanna go to that resturant ?
Devan - its whatever come on . We got up and I put on my shoes . We all got into James car and he drove to the resturant. we walked in and was instantly seated but unfortunatley Sarah was my waiter again .
Sarah - hey Travis ! I see you came back for me ?!
me - nope sarah i said
Sarah - Selena she corrected and you still fucking with that bum a-
me - check yourself Sarah
Sarah - I can offer you way more than she can
devan - who is she talking about ?
sarah - Aaliyah
james - whos that ?
sarah - ooh there she go right there she said smirking my eyes shot back behind her at Liyah who walked out the door to a table
a smile never left her face as she handed them some people their food . Their baby dropped her bottle and she bent down picking it up
?- stephani now its dirty the woman complained
Liyah - ill go wash it off ?
?- no you dont have to
Liyah - its fine she said and walked off
she returned and handed it to the baby as the parents thanked her
liyah - awwh no problem she said I got up and she walked past me not noticing me so I grabbed onto her waist
Me - How you just gone walk past daddy ? I asked and she looked back and laughed wrapping her hands around me and hugging me .
Me - I miss you
Liyah - I kno she said cocky making me look at her
Liyah - nah I’m jus’ playin’ boy , I miss you too
Me - I bet I said squeezing her tighter
Liyah - hol up she said letting me go as someone called her name
Liyah - whatchu wan Selenah ?
Selena - Get to work Aaliyah
Liyah made a face
Liyah - bit- bih oh I’m sorry who are you talkin to shorty ? she asked her and I laughed cause she was serious
Selena - get to work for I tell boss
Liyah - tell em .
I heard Devan and James mumbling under their breathe . Damn I forgot about them being here .
I looked and seen his friends - them same racist hoes mumbling about me under their breathe
?- fuck he with her for ?
I wrapped arms around Travis and looked up at him
Me - gimme a kiss ?
He looked back at his friends , who was looking at him with disappointment shaking their heads before he shook his head no
Me - no ? I asked as he avoided eye contact before I let him go .
I bit my lip and walked off but he grabbed my arm
Me - don’t fucking touch me I said clearing my throat so my voice wouldn’t crack
Travis - Liya-
Me - man watch out I said and walked back to the table .
He lowkey broke my mf heart . You don’t care about me being black but when your stupid ass friends say something you don’t wanna give me a kiss when that’s all your ass been asking me for ?
Ok fuck him . I went back to waiting tables .
Once again Stefani dropped her bottle . I silently picked it up
Me - I’ll be back I said and washed it refilling it with half water and juice giving it back .
I took their dirty plates going back
Boss - What’s wrong sweetheart ?
Me - nothing I told him
Boss - you sure ? Selena just said you got your heart broken
Me - Selena gone get her jaw broken if she keep messing with me I said showing him a fake smile walking back off .
