Trey sat in his cousin/best friend Javar’s office. Javar called Trey earlier that morning about something he described as “urgent”. Trey was both curious and worried about what was about to go down.
Just when trey finished sending a text to Noel, Javar walked in with Fynch right behind him. Trey looked up in shock.
“Fynch…fuck you doing here man?”
“Trey…we got some shit we need to show you.”
“Shit like what?
“This.” Javar responded slamming a thick magazine on the table in front of Trey.
“What is this?” Trey asked raising an eyebrow.
“Read it for yourself man.”
Noel had a smile on her face as she walked up the steps to Trey’s brownstone. She had just purchased some takeout from California Pizza Kitchen, and a bottle of Trey’s favorite red wine.
Tonight was going to be a great night ,and Noel couldn’t wait to make love to Trey.
She walked into Treys dark apartment and walked straight to the kitchen.
Noel jumped when she turned the light on, finding Trey sitting at the dining room table with an unreadable expression on his face.
Shit! Trey…why are you sitting in the dark? You scared me.”
“I was thinking.”
Noel stood in front of Trey, not sure of what he was referring to.
“Okay. What made you think about that.”
“Noel, let’s cut the bullshit aight.”
“What bullshit Trey, I don’t.”
“Don’t you DARE stand in front of me and say you don’t know what I’m talking about!!!”
Trey stood up, causing Noel to take a few steps back.
“I’m gonna give you ONE chance to tell me the truth Noel.”
“Listen to me…Trey I don’t….”
“Tell me the fucking truth Noel!!!” Trey screamed as his nose flared.
“Trey….I …” Noel was speechless.
“Nothing to say huh?” Trey picked up the magazine and slammed it on the kitchen counter.
‘What the fuck is this?! Huh?”
Noel looked down in horror. The title "Getting to know the REAL Tremaine Neverson" looked back up at her.
“Oh my God. Trey how did you…”
“How did I get it? Fuck did you think I wouldn’t? You think I wouldn‘t find out about this shit?!”
“Trey…I’m so sorry…”
“I trusted you Noel…And you go and put my business, personal shit about me, in a fucking magazine?”
“Trey…I work for them. And…I just…I needed this break.”
“Now you come here, make me trust you, fucking...fall in love with you…and you throw my personal info out there?”
“I’m so sorry Trey…”
“You fucking told people that I had crabs? About models I’ve fucked. In detail!! How could you!”
“That’s all you got Noel? For putting me and my family’s personal business out there? Sorry?”
“Trey…I didn’t mean to hurt you…”
Trey chuckled rubbing his chin. ‘You didn’t mean to hurt me? Fuck you Noel.”
“Trey don’t be like that…”
“FUCK YOU. Get your shit and get the fuck out of my house.”
“Trey…Just hear me out!!”
“I don’t wanna her shit you got to say. I trusted you and you betrayed me in the worst way possible…we have nothing to talk about. Get out.”
Noel had never seen Trey so angry before. She felt naked and uncomfortable when Trey’s intense eyes priced through her. She gathered her things quickly.
“I started to love you…I really did.”
“Doesn’t fucking matter now. You did me dirty, so you’re dead to me. Leave your key on the table.”
Noel’s heart sank. She knew this was coming, but she never knew it would be like this.
Noel took one last look at Trey. He rubbed his temples then held his face in his hands.
Noel knew it was over, and there was nothing she could do or say. She walked out closing Trey’s door behind her.
Trey sat in silence for awhile feeling angry and betrayed for the second time in 2 years. He was over it.
"Fuck love. I'm tired of this shit." Trey mumbled.
Although Trey had made vows like this to himelf before, somewhere inside Trey knew,
He ment it this time.?
