Karma looked at Trey suspiciously. He was acting weird lately. She had a feeling he was holding something from her.
"Ya baby" he answered over his shoulder as he fixed Aubry and Giavannis bottles.
"Is there something wrong?"
Now he looked at her. "Whatch u mean?"
"I feel like theres something youre not telling me"
He picked up the bottles and walked over to her. He kissed her on the forehead and looked her in the eyes.
"Ya, everythings cool"
She still wasnt sure, but she let it go. She couldnt complain when he was helping her take care of her children so she could rest.
They'd go see Ty everyother weekend. He loved school and was making alot of friends. Apparently he was real popular and all the teachers and girls loved him. He was turning out to be a real ladies man like Trey.
"So the wedding is planned for May 23, three weeks after my brothers. We still have to get our outfits for theirs, then find a venue for ours, and.."
Trey came up to her and put his finger on her lips "Take a break"
She pouted. "I cant"
"You gonna have to.. I dont need you gettin over stressed"
"Well thats what bein engaged to Trey Neverson and having 3 kids will do"
He laughed "We takin a vacation afta the weddin"
"Finally.. Celebraties have soo much drama.. Im sick of hearin bout so and so goin to court, people pregnant and gettin divorces and cheating.. Its too much.."
Trey just looked at her not saying anything else as he went to go feed the girls.

A few nights later Trey looked at Karma as she cooked dinner. Watching her closely.
"We need to talk"
"Lemme explain before you say anything.."
Karma turned and looked deep into Treys eyes, her face expressionless. Trey took a deep sigh.
"This girl name Robin might be havin my kid"
He looked at Karma but she still had a blank face "Keep goin" she told him
"We met at my managers birthday party.. We were drunk and we had sex. A few months ago she told me it was mines. I denied it and now she takin to me to court.. I didnt know she was 18, she told me she was 25. Now she wants me to pay child support. I didnt want to get you involved, thats why I broke up which you.. I knew when you found out youd leave me.."
"Whyd you wait soo long to tell me.."
"I didnt want to lose you"
"So you broke up with me first"
"I didnt want to bring you into all dis"
"Do you think its yours?" she asked lifeless
"I dont know.. Im havin her take a DNA test after its born"
Karma continued to stare at him. Then she smiled, a wide smile, and walked out the room without a word.
She didnt speak to Trey for weeks. Making him sleep on the couch. She never cried, broke anything, yelled at him..instead she just acted like he didnt exist.
The silence between them was driving him crazy
"Baby talk to me" he told her two days after he mentioned the baby
"Trey... I dont know what to say"
She didnt answer..
Trey walked over to her and wraped his arms around her. They stood there for a minute in silence.. Karmas head was spinning
* * *
Trey went to court almost everyday. Somedays Karma would come, some days she couldnt do it.
The court ruled untill the baby was born and Trey could prove that the baby isnt his, he has to pay the medical bills.
"She jus want my money" Trey told Karma one day after court.
"Im not surprised"
"Come to find out she been sleepin wit a few dudes.."
Karma looked Trey dead in the eyes now "But you still cheated on me.."
Trey sighed.. "When you gonna trust me again"
The next day Trey was at court and Karma was home. She looked at herself in the mirror in their bed room.
She then looked at her ring and sighed.
She looked around the room, looking at the pictures of her and Trey they had takin over the months at various parties and award shows, and some personal ones theyd takin together like at the beach and one with them on the couch.
Karma knew what she had to do next would be the hardest choice ever.
* * *
Trey opened the door. The house felt extremely empty.
"Karma?" he called
He walked around untill he went to their bedroom. He looked around and noiced all their pictures were gone. He looked over to see everything he bought her, the clothes folded neatly, jewlery placed on top, shoes lined up on the floor and her teddy bear and flowers next to it all on the bed. He turned his head and saw a white note on the dresser. He picked it up and recognized the handwriting as Karmas.
I love you. You've saved me more times then I can count. Not only from Damian, but myself. But I just think that at this point in time, its better if we werent together. God put us on this earth and fate wanted us to meet, but life..had different plans for you and me. You're at the very top right now, but theres no room for the both of us. The stresses of being a huge celebrity dont need to be anymore then they are with me making it worse. I can see the stress grow on you everyday, from always trying to please me.. And I dont want to hold you back from being the best. I know you'll find the one. I know I did.. But when it comes to doing whats good for me and you.. This is the only option. All the years Ive spent alone, mad, angry, deprssed, scared and upset, meeting you, has made up for all that. Ill never forget the time we spent together, and I will never find anyone like you. Ill keep you in my heart if you keep me in yours.
Love for forever and always
Trey read it over and over. He finally put it down and rushed out the door. He went to his mothers first. Karma was there earlier. She told April she was taking Ty to Treys. He tried calling her cell.. It was disconected. He called Megan, Camealla, Jasmine and her brothers.
None of them knowing wheres she was. She didnt tell any of them where she was going. She disapeared completely. She made sure Trey couldnt go looking for her. When he got back to his home he walked into the bedroom and sat down on the edge of the bed. He looked up to see her ring next to the note.
"Is this how she felt.." he asked himself.
He went to bed, constantly looking on her side of the bed. Feeling the empty space that was now there.
* * *
3 weeks went by and Trey hadnt heard from Karma. Neither has her family or friends. Trey was miserable without her. But the pain he felt helped him finally give his album the edge it needed, making it go platinum.
Trey was in New York. His album release party was a huge success. Everyone congradulated him. But Trey just couldnt pick himself up. After the party he was sitting at a table with a bottle of Absolute Vodka.
Troy Taylor walked up and sat down across from him
"What happened?" he asked him
Trey just shook his head. He picked up the bottle and took a large gulp
"All that fire and passion you had is gone.. Its cuz of your girl isnt it?"
Trey sighed "I pushed her away.."
"This life isnt for everyone. She was talented tho.. She coulda been as big as you"
Trey didnt say anything. Troy stood back up and patted Trey on the back.
"Good luck" he told him
Trey just noded. He continued to sit there alone. He stared off at nothing for a long time.
Then, there infront of him, stood Karma.
She wore a tight red dress, her hair straightened, makeup done, wearing Beyonces new Heat perfume
He smiled "You here"
"I wouldnt miss this"
She turned around and unzipped her dress. She walked over to Trey and stroked her hand on his cheek before climbing onto the table. Before his eyes it turned into a stage.
"This is just for you" she told him
Trey leaned back in his chair as she did a dance routine. After a minute or two she squated down in front of him. He reached out to grab her but his hands went right threw her. She dissapeard ending his hallucination
Trey sat there alone. Everyone gone. He gave Ci Ci his keys so he wouldnt go and drive. He drank some more untill he could see Karma again. He spent his night making her appear over and over again.
* * *
Trey was walking down the sidewalk on his way to the studio. He wasnt paying any mind to the people, but something caught his eye. He wasnt sure if he was right or not but he swore he saw Karma.
She saw him..
He stoped and looked in the direction she was walking. He wasnt sure. She cut off her hair, leaving a mohawk in the middle. but it was down to the side like Kelly off The Game. She had on sunglasses and her style was different, but Trey recognized her walk.
"Karma!" he yelled after her
She continued to walk. She had to use all her power not to break her stride. Trey continued to watch her. When she kept walking he slowly turned around.
"Shit" she said under her breath
She quickly turned around and walked up to him. She grabed him by the arm and pulled him into a kiss. She pulled back and looked at him
He only had one shot at this
"Come back.. You dont know how much I need you"
She put her hand to his cheek.. "Im sorry"
Then she took off into the crowd
"Wait!" he called after her.
He tried to catch her, but he lost her in the rush. He didnt get to tell her the baby wasnt his.
* * *
Trey was on Stage in Houston. He was on a short tour with Ne-Yo as his opening act.
He was onstage preforming one of his favorite songs off his album, Cant Be Freinds. He was into it looking at the crowd as they sang along and danced. He looked down at the front row as they sang.
When he saw Karma looking at him smiling. She was singing the lyrics and swaying back and forth. Trey couldnt just stop the show so he finished his song, performed two more and quickly got off stage.
He tried to go out in the crowd but his people wouldnt let him. He waited for the show to end, pacing around his dressing room. When it did he grabed a sweat shirt, pulled it over his head and walked out to find Karma. He searched and searched but couldnt find her. She was gone.
He walked backstage and Donte came up to him. He held out a small peice of paper
Trey grabed it and looked at him
Trey looked back at him.
"When you get this?"
"Begin of the show... She told me to wait till the show was over"
Trey looked back down at it and smiled a little.
"Im always with you"
