Karma was right. Rumors started to came out of the woodwork. Some of them soo ridiculous she couldnt help but laugh. Others from people who just wanted attention.
Trey Neverson is Gay?!?
Trey Neverson raped me
Trey Neverson spotted out in NYC with Toni Braxton
Treys new love in his life. Did she really cheat on him with model Mya??
That last one made her clench her teeth.
Trey proposed to Monica??
That one made her laugh. She met Monica a few weeks back. She even sang a chorus on one of Karmas songs. She knew her and Trey were just friends.
"Whats soo funny?" Trey asked as he walked in threw the front door.
She looked back at him and smiled. "Just reading the lastest gossip on you"
"What they sayin now" he asked as he walked into the kitchen
"That your gay"
"What else is new"
Trey looked at her and smiled. "I aint gonna lie. That nigga got a nice ass"
Karma busted out laughing "Well I hope you dont cheat on me with him"
"I cant help that he finer then you"
"Well then we're gonna have to make it a three-some"
"Im gay babe, i aint into that"
"Oh darn.. Too bad.. I guess I might have to turn you straight then"
Trey walked over and kissed her on the lips.
"You just did"
She smiled. "So howd things go?"
"Good.. We finished two tracks, and made beats for three more"
"Sounds like you made alot of progress today"
He noded "Whatch you do today?"
"Me and my big belly self slept all day today.."
He laughed and walked around to the other side of the couch, lifted her legs, sat down and put her feet on his lap and started to rub them.
"Hmm.. that feels good"
"So thats all you did.."
"Basically.. It was soo quite I had to turn the tv up all the way"
"You know if you miss Ty you can go see em. They only a couple hours away"
"I know.. I talked to him today though. He really likes it there"
"Im sure he do"
"I might have to go down soon.. But i might end up stayin there with your mom"
"Yall are really close"
"She loves me.. We talked for hours today"
"Well im glad yall get along.."
"She might replace you with me"
"I hope not.. Im not in the mood for sharing"
Karma laughed. She closed the lap top, laid back, and closed her eyes, as he continued to rub her feet.

"This is some of the best work Ive ever heard.. Your fans are gonna love this"
Trey just noded while they listened to the track over again
"Ive never seen you soo inspired before"
"Cuz I got inspiration"
He looked over at Karma who was laying on the couch in the studio, sleeping. He smiled at how peaceful she looked
"If shes the reason why yo music is on point, then she cool with me. Keep her around all the time"
"I plan on it" he told him, still watching her.
"This album is gonna go platinum.. I can feel it"
Trey was still watching Karma.
"So you excited for yo nomination?"
Now Trey looked at him. "Nomination?"
"Ya, for the MTV Music Awards"
"Fuck.. I forget thats tomorrow"
"You got time. Just get a jet ready and have yo stylist get yall ready on your way there "
Trey fliped open his phone and started dialing numbers.
They stayed there untill 7 in the morning. Trey took Karma back to the hotel and put her to bed. But he still had buisness to take care of and left back out the hotel.
* * *
Karma heard a voice next to her ear. She slowly opened her eyes ad looked over to see Ci Ci standing there. She looked at her clock. It was 1 in the afternoon.
"Come on, you have to get up"
"Why? Whats going on?"
"You have to take a shower, so we can leave"
"Ya, for the award show"
Karma was confused, but figured to ask Trey, She looked over to see that he wasnt there. She tried to sit up, but was struggling. Ci Ci put her hand behind her back and helped her up and out of bed.
"Your getting big"
"I know.. Its starting to be a pain"
Karma got in the shower and 20 minutes later after putting on sweat pants and a t-shirt she walked out the room to see bags packed and ready to go.
She spotted Trey getting measured for a suit. He looked over at her and smiled.
"Whats goin on?"
"I forgot about the award show was today.. I had to get measured thats why I had Ci Ci wake you"
"So wheres the award show at?"
Her mouth droped open "California??"
"Ya, as soon as Im done we gotta go the the airport"
"What am I gonna wear?"
"My stylist got you when we get on the jet"
Now she was speechless
"O-kay.." was all she could manage to say.
After they got all of Treys measurements he picked up his and Karmas bags. They walked outside to a black BMW with a driver already waiting on them and headed to the airport.
* * *
When they got there, they walked out onto the strip where a jet was waiting for them. They walked up the ramp and inside where Karma almost went into shock.
It was huge, and luxurious. Almost like a 5 star hotel room. Karma notice racks of clothes in the room next door. Then a small lady walked out of the room and over to her.
"Hello Im Beth" she said sticking out her hand
Karma shook it "Nice to meet you"
"Im glad Trey told me you were pregnant ahead of time. I have some lovely dresses that arent too tight, and beautiful sandals so you dont have to wear heals at all"
"That sounds great"
"Perfect.. Follow me over her." She pulled a dress off the rack and handed it to her along with some shoes
"If you please, can you go in this room here and change so I can see what it looks like"
Karma did what she was told. Most of the flight there she tried on dresses untill they picked the right one. After that she fell back asleep while Trey was trying on different suits.
When they touched down it was 3:30.
"I feel like I just started my day all over again"
Trey laughed. "You rested tho?"
She yawned and stretched "I believe so"
"Good, cuz this day's about to get longer"
After they got back in a black cadillac escalase they dove off to a hotel, where the ate, then got dressed. A hair dresser and make up artists worked on Karma while Trey got his hair trimed and his edges done.
It was 4:30 when they finished. Karma looked at herself in the mirror. Her hair was done into a bump. They left the rest curly and pulled it back into a messy ponytail that came over her shoulder.
They picked a similar white dress like the one Megan Fox wore at her Transformers 2 premiere, a Kaufman Franco gown that slited down her sides, loose in the front showing enough skin, but not enough to see her belly, with a gold belt. Gold woven Alexander McQueen sandals that wraped around up past her ankels with a strap coming between her toes. She had on two giant silver braclets and small diamond earrings.
They tried to keep Trey matching so they put him in a white suit, with black jean pants and undershirt with a gold tie and Radii Straight Jacket sneakers.
Trey looked over at Karma who was still looking at herself.
"You look beautiful"
She looked over at him and smiled "So do you"
"I think so.. Im a little nervous"
He got up and walked over to her "Its fine.. Imma be doin most of the talking"

"Hey, this is Sway and Im here with rapper Trey Neverson and his beautiful girlfriend Karma. Are you excited for you three nominations tonight for Best R&B Artist of the year, Best Hip Hop song and Best Collaboration."
"Im very excited"
"So tell us about your new album youre workin on"
Well I wanted to switch it up and sing on this album like I do on my mixtapes. The title is Passion, Pain, Pleasure. I dont want to get too into it, but the fans are gonna love it"
"We also heard that Ms Karma over here is also working on an album of her own"
"Ya, we're gettin her started on her own mixtape, workin with some great artists and we'll have to wait and see where it takes her"
"Thats awsome. Well thanks for talkin with us. Good luck tonight we'll catch you later"
Trey noded "Thank you" He grabed Karmas hand and led her away and back into the crowd
She was thankful Trey was gonna talk for her. She didnt want to say the wrong thing and embarrass herself. They continued walking, occasionaly stoping to take pictures and talk to interviewers.
They stoped infront of one interviewer, only for Treys manager to to pull him away to meet someone, leaving Karma there by herself.
"So we're here with Karma Robinson, Trey Neversons new love intrestest" the man looked at Karma
"So we hear that you are coming out with an mixtape of your own"
She smiled at him "Yes"
"A song leaked onto the internet from that mixtape, "Beautiful" featuring Fabulous. You seem to be getting quite a fanbase already"
"Unfortunately it was realeased earlier, but Im glad people are begining to like it already"
"So do you think being a stripper will affect your fanbase?"
Her smile disappeared "Im no longer a stripper.. In fact as I recall, wasnt umm.. Eve a stripper, an underaged one at that. I dont belive that "affected" her fan base.. Im sure she would love to talk to you about that chapter in her life"
She smiled at him again. Trey walked back over to her, grabed her hand again and pulled her away. The interviewer motioned for the camera guy to stop recording.

Trey and Karma sat in their seats, anxiously waiting for tthe results. He won Best Collaboration, but lost Best Hip Hop Song. Now they were waiting to see if he won his last nomination.
"And the winner for Best R&B Artist of the year is...."
The crowd stood up and applauded as he grabed Karmas hand and brought her on stage to accept his award.
"Wow.. Thanks..this is an honor, really. I first gotta thank my mumma, for bein there for me from the start. My fans for makin me who I am today, and God for keepin me strong."
He looked back at Karma "And my beautiful girlfriend.. Love you baby"
She smiled a huge, dimple smile. " I love you too" she mouthed
Trey turned back and handed his award to Ciara, then turned back to Karma and grabed both her hands.
He then got down on one knee
Karmas heart stoped
"I want you to be around forever."
He pulled out a small black box and opened it. Inside was a 10k White Gold Citrine and Diamond Ring with two hearts parallel together going opposite ways.
She was speechless. The crowd was completely silent. A tear ran down her cheek as she looked down at him. A smile spread across his face along with hers.
"Yes" she choked out
Trey took the ring and put it on her finger, then stood up, pulled her close and kissed her. The crowd errupted into cheers, everyone standing up. Trey turned around, took back his award, lifted it one last time before walking back stage, Karma right by his side, his arm wraped around her.
In Chicago Megan and all her friends were in shock. Screaming, trying to get a hold of Karma leaving her over 30 voice mails.
In New York it was the same for Nikki and Karla, immediately calling Karma, leaving voice mails telling her they just say her and to call them.
As soon as they got back stage all the other artists and actors and actresses greeted them with smiles.
Congratulations here and there. But Karma was too focused on Trey. She looked down at her ring, looking soo big on her finger.
"You stole the show" she heard someone say
"Its gonna be hard for me to top that" she heard someone else say
"I love you" she heard someone say
She looked up to see Trey looking at her. Another tear ran down her cheek, but he wiped it away, letting his hand linger on her cheek.
" I love you too"
