Tasha jump out the bed and went to run her some bath water as she ran water she went over to the sink and brushed her teeth. She looked back only to find that the water was over running. Oh my fucking god really come on I’m already late. Tasha opened the door where she kelp towels and grabbed some and placed them on the floor of her condo’s bathroom. ( Me & Mr. Wrong get along so good even though he breaks my heart so bad ). She went over to grab her cell phone, hello, hello, hello, aye Tasha where you at mane you have customers man time is money said Cozy I’m on my way Cj.

Tasha went to the elevator and pushed down it’s six fifty I’m not gone make it in time. Ding about time she got on the elevator and pushed one and the doors opened on the fourth floor. She kept looking at the time the man that got on the elevator was looking at her. He just looked and Tasha then noticed that he was watching her she put her head down and he then spoke up why you putting your head down ma, I’m not going to bite you she never answered and she pushed one again, ding the doors opened and she flew out the elevator and didn’t even look back. While walking out of the building she noticed that he was following her (this nigga crazy ) . Aye ma, aye stop, come here ma, Tasha said look I don’t have time to talk I’m in a rush I’m late. Okay ma I’m sorry. When she got to the parking garage she saw her truck and pressed the unlock button beep, beep. She got in put her purse on the floor in the back. She then put the keys in the ignition and started the truck. She then closed the door and left out. When she arrived at Cozy Styles she saw that her customers where there. She parked and grabbed her bag and keys. Say Tasha you got this one. When she walked in the room hey Tasha everybody said hi I’m sorry I’m late I know so I’ll just give everyone five dollars off if that helps. Ms. Terry said good for me gal. Tasha started serving her customers and whispered time is money for realKara Chapter TwoWho is it? Me” knock knock” who is it? “ Me mane open the door. “ Who the hell is me? “ Torrance! Oh, I’m coming. Took you a while. You was scared? Of who? For what? Me? I told you Torrance don’t be touching on me. You act like you cant hear. Where my kids at mane? Khalee sleep and Kiren playing. Don’t wake my baby up! Kara that just not your baby! Why she no? I carried her nine months, swollen feet and ankles, spent ten hours in labor, and had her. Me! So she is mine. Kara I don’t have time for your stories, just get their shit, so I can go. Have them back by nine. That’s when I get off and that’s when I want my children. Didn’t I just tell you I don’t want to hear it. Shut up! All you do is bitch, bye! ( It’s a shame, you didn’t want it when you had it!) Hello, what‘s up? Bitch what you doing? Nothing, on the way to work. Oh well girl what time you get off? I get off at nine. What you want to stay? Kara call me back on your break and I’ll let you know what’s up. As Kara got off the phone, she jumped into her royal blue Impala and drove off. She works at a publishing company called Dixon Cooperate. Even though she hated it, she had to make ends meet and she didn’t like asking Torrance for anything. Only if she had to, but he would always take about it. Hi Ms. Kara your mail is in your box. Thank you, said Kara. As she walked through office of Dixon Cooperate. Kara sat at her desk. She saw that she had voice mails. She sighed to herself. What a long day. She started calling the young authors back. Hi this is Kara Scott your marketing agents how may I help you? Even though she hated it, she knew that it was just a rip off. She always wanted to tell the authors, but she knew that she would get fired. How would she take care of her children then they needed her and she needed them. She knew their father loved them, but he was just so stupid. Whatever she said, he would just ignore her or cuss but she needed him at the end of the day. After awhile of returning phone calls, she sat down and thought about what her friend Minnie wanted with her. Everybody knew that Minnie was a get it and run chick, but she wasn’t the baddest in the game like Kara. Kara always was on top. Since she was born she loved money. Counting it, smelling it, shit she probably tired to bathe in it. She had her children for a man with lots of money. Kara loved Torrance and Torrance loved Kara, but we all knew that they never got along. No matter what it was, he would come to support Kara, but staying or living with her was out of the question. She loved that he didn’t want to live with her and he liked that she didn’t want him to live with her. At one time, Kara and Torrance was on the throne. They had everything. You name it, they had it. None stop drugs, money, cars, clothes, houses and even love. But when Torrance went to jail everything came crashing down. He was gone for ten years and Kara couldn’t wait anymore. That’s when she left him, which hurt the both of them, but Kara said I can do bad all by myself.Billie Chapter ThreeLet’s go, move people, move people, those drugs not gone work their selves. Come on how fucking hard is it to measure cocaine and put it in a damn bag huh. The police gone catch me before yall done, Billie said as she laughed at the workers ( Cush in the swisher money over bitches never kill a woman unless she a witness) she rapped the words to lil Wayne Sure Thing. I just love that song. Say Billie huh? What time you think these mother fuckers gone be done. Baby I’m trying to make them hurry now.

Everyone did just what Billie said they followed each other and everybody got there same place and same time. As they drove through the gates. Who are you here to see? Mel, Code? Seven, five, nine. As the gate open both truck drove through. Billie and Mona got out and directed the trucks to the back. Kevin walked out and told the truck men where to carry and put the items. Billie and Mona wanted their cut right then and there but Kevin wanted them to wait. They didn’t have a problem with Kevin because they knew that he was good on his word. But the question was how long would they have to wait. Mona and Billie had been friends for years and the know how the game goes there where no if’s and buts about it. Mel was one of the biggest connections in the world. Everybody wanted a piece of what Mel’s business or his products. But he only fucked with brother’s that were more like him, the brother’s that were very serious over there drugs, money and woman. Mel has a wife and everybody knew not to fuck with her, If they didn’t want to deal with Mel point bank.Tasha Chapter Four “ What along day at the shop”, Tasha said as she walked through the doors of her home. I’m tired and all I need is to relax. Tasha walked in the bathroom, I forgot all about that water. She then cleaned the water off the floor in the bathroom. After cleaning the water up she ran herself some hot water and put some bathing beads she got from Bed Bath & Beyond . When the tub was full she cut the water off. She grabbed two towels she dropped the small one in her water and the other on the towel rack for when she got out. She then took her clothes off and stepped in. She sat down and back she then closed her eyes and sigh but it didn’t last long there was a knock at the door, (knock, knock). Who is that and what the hell do they need she thought. She stepped out of the tub and walked to the door she threw on her Vera Wang robe. Who is it? Cali! Who is Cali? Um who do you need sir? The lady from the elevator her name is Tasha! The lady in the elevator oh. Tasha opened up the door. Yes now may I help you? What’s up ma? Um I was in the middle of a bath! I’m sorry ma but this couldn’t wait! Look I been watching you since you been here that’s been a year now and I like how you work hard for your shit. I love that you independent and go get and do everything your damn self. So check this out I’m feeling you a lot and I know that you don’t know me but you gone have time to know me. No matter what even if I have to come to your house everyday. I see that you don’t have niggers over and I just have a thing for you. Get a pen a piece of paper and take down my number. Tasha did as she was told without bitching about it. She then came back to where Cali was standing. Three, eight, nine, twenty three, forty five that’s my cell number you can hit me up. What’s your’s ma? Um two, eight, nine, seventy five, eighty nine! Tasha said with a smile. Let me call and make sure this the right number. Cause I don’t want to have to come back up here. Cali called Tasha phone to find out that it was the right number . Thanks ma! I’m sorry that I messed up your bath forgive me and I’ll call you later. “ be sweet, sexy and safe,” Cali told Tasha while leaving. Tasha closed the front door and thought about what just happen. She went to finish her bath. When Tasha got out of the tub it was now eleven thirty. Her bath was long but she need it. She left from out the bathroom and turned the light off. She walked to her bed room, pulled the covers back in her king size bed and climbed in. She reached down to put her phone on the charger. She laid down and thought about Cali’s complexion. He was about six two about one hundred and ninety pounds, dark with a bald head. He had many tattoo’s but neither were in his face. He was very muscular and his swag game was something that you wouldn’t see everyday. Tasha was feeling Cali and she knew that every woman in the building wanted him but he never paid them any attention. His look’s was all that she dreamed of in a man but Tasha didn’t care about the looks. She cared and wanted the love, loyal, faith and respect that he had to give her. Tasha was a smart girl not a dummy. She might act ghetto from time to time but there were many people that misjudged her because of her looks. She was a brown caramel color, her hair was cut short and black in a bob. She was five three and weighted about one hundred twenty pounds. Her breast was a C cup and it was more than you think she would have. She had bee to the best schools, restaurants, and even trips but dating Cali was something she had to really think about. She didn’t know what she was getting into and she knew that Cali could be here Mr. Wrong. She closed her eyes and went into a deep sleep. ( Me & Mr. Wrong get along so good even though he breaks my heart so bad ) Hello? Tasha said in her sleepily voice. “ You sleep ma” Cali said from the other side of the phone. I was sleep before you called. Oh I’m sorry. “ That’s fine” Tasha said while raising up. She looked at the time only to find that she had been sleep for only a hour. You want to go back to sleep? No I’m up now I might as well stay up shouldn’t I. Tasha said in the smartest way she possible could. Cali just laughed and said that was a smart remark. Tasha said yeah and then she let Cali know that she didn’t have time to play games. She was very far from that; either they were going to be together or they were not. She told him that she wouldn’t look for him and chase him because she had business and she didn’t get paid to watch a man. Cali laughed cause he thought Tasha was funny but he liked that she didn’t have a problem with telling him what was on her mind. Tasha do you have any children? Nah you been watching me for a year mow and you couldn’t tell! She laughed and said no. But one day I would love to have children with my husband. “ Husband”? Yes my husband! I want to get married. I want a big wedding. Cali then ask Tasha what she wanted out of a man? She laughed and replied I want a man who will be loyal, caring, faithful, respectful, hones, loving, caring and there to listen when I talk. I want him to tell me that I am beautiful when I least expect it. Wow! I can do all those things. I’m like superman. Beautiful little lady . Tasha smiled from ear to ear. Tasha then knew that she had Cali and Cali knew that he had Tasha but it was now up to the both of them to make it worth it. Kara Chapter FiveWhat are we going to eat tonight. Kara said as she walked through her front door. Lord, today has been the longest day ever. Now I got to argue with him this don’t make sense. Lord I know you don’t put anything on me that I can’t bare. But Torrance funky just ass too much. Where my phone at she said. As she was picking up the phone there was a knock at the door. She went over to open it just to find out that it was Torrance and the children. Thank you lord, Kara was tired and she knew her job wasn’t over. She was a mother and a baby momma. Torrance did you buy my baby milk. I hope you didn’t forget anything. Look Kara I brought everything just shut up nobody wants to hear that. Kara just looked up at Torrance and started getting her baby and her things. She got Kha’lee’s baby seat and put it on top of the counter she unbuckled her baby girl just to tell her she missed her. While Kara her the baby there where about seven men running in the house with big black guns and masks that covered their face. Kara ran over to her son to find that he was laying behind the door unconscious. She held her daughter and laid over her son. She screamed and asked for the help of god. Kara did mouth to mouth with her son. The seven men rushed through the house and they wanted money, dope and Torrance but Kara didn’t have any of that. All she wanted was for her child to be okay. As she laid over her son she cried. She wanted someone to hear her anyone. Torrance laid flat down on the floor on his stomach with two gun men feet in his back and both guns to his head. Torrance asked that they let Kara and the children go they had nothing to do with it. Shut the fuck up before I blow this fucking baby up and what the fuck you gone do ha ha the gun men said. They picked up Kara and wanted Kha’lee but Kara wouldn’t let her go she held on to her. The gun men punched and kicked Kara and did everything they could but Kara still didn’t let her go. Kara laid over her son and held on to her daughter and asked for the help of the lord. Lord I need you right now please Kara, Kara, Kara Torrance said but it was Kara that held on. She knew that she needed a phone to call for help. She got off the floor and walked over to the phone. Bitch go back before I put a billet in you. Torrance called Kara’s name but Kara turned around with a response, you took my baby so do me, you took all that I have so do me with that being said she called nine one one . Boom Boom? Three shots to her son’s head. The seven gun men ran and left Kara stayed on the phone and she knew help was on the way. She then went over to her son and laid over him. His blood was on her but she didn’t care. He needed her and she needed her. As the police and EMS came they rushed through the doors. They taped everything off but Kara never left Kiren’s side. She stayed EMS got Kara off of Kiren and they were rushed to a near by hospital. Hours later five year Kiren was pounced dead at eleven twenty seven pm. The hugs and kisses and even support was with Kara but all she wanted was her son. Kara cried, Torrance held on to his grieving. Why was all that she could say. My children where suppose to burry to burry me. Kara was strong but there wasn’t anyway that she can become her self. She had a spot that was missing and that spot was Kiren Scott. Billie Chapter SixAs Billie walked though the door of her house. She laid everything down. She was mad as hell and Wayne knew it. When Billie got mad she would just look crazy like she was ready to kill even if you where talking to her. (Cush in the Swi) Hello she said the phone haven’t even ring for a minute. Baby you mad?

I want out and I’m doing what’s best for Billie and if this makes you feel better keep the money you can have it. There’s more where that came from. I love you Wayne but Billie is Billie and I want out! I’m getting out. Billie then hung up the phone with the biggest smile on her face, it looked like she was made out of gold. Billie felt good to let Wayne know what she was doing. She was kind of happy that she was letting him know what she was doing instead of him telling her what to do. It was now time for her to tell herself what to do it was now time for her to be her own boss. You the boss she sang to herself. Billie had a new attitude and it was called fuck Wayne I’m the baddest chick. Billie whispered and by that being said it was time for her to act like it.
