That night, Noni slept peacefully. And boy did time fly. She was woken up by a text from no other than “Mr. Loso, in case you didn’t know so”. It took simple things, like a good morning text to make her smile.
F: Good morning baby
N: Good morning sweetie
F: How did you sleep?
N: I slept peacefully. It was wonderful. You?
F. awww you didn’t have any Loso dreams? Lol! I’m just going home but I knew it was about time for you to get up and get on with your “oh so busy lifestyle”. Just remember no one can put you to sleep like I can and I will if and when we get there.
Noni could not help but wonder where the relationship between her and Fab was going to end up. “Only God knows”, she thought to herself. She didn’t want to lead Fab on or anything, but she really had a good time last night. And it was always a pleasure to be out with gentlemen, nevertheless she always had this rule “never let your guard down even a little”. Reality set it quickly. “Get yourself together”. So she simply grinned at Fabo’s text and sent a quick reply back telling him, that it was time for business, and that she would talk to him later.
N: Ha, boy you silly. SMH. Well it is Monday, so I gotta get my butt up and get ready for work I have clients to see and money to make. Ttyl lol J
F: well damn baby go on and get your work on I’ll hit you up later J
Noni looked at the clock it was 6:00AM time to get a move on. It would be 8:00AM before she knew it. Noni hopped in the shower and got ready. It hit her again, “Damn its Monday which means I have to bring breakfast, Starbucks here I come!” Noni went in and took a shower and got ready for work.
M: Well look who’s here finally!
N: What? You know I had to go get breakfast so hush!
M: uh huh…..Noni are you glowing?
N: Girl, what are you talking about?
M: You must think I’m stupid. So where the heck you been this weekend, and with who?
N: Shhhh…not so loud. Girl I have so much to tell you….you are going to be left speechless! (Noni looked at the clock it was already 7:45 trey would be here any minute) but in the meantime I’m going to need you to go to the front desk cause Mr. Songz will be here any minute now.
M: Mr. Songz as in Mr. Trey Songz as in Tremaine Aldon Neverson? What the hell?!?!?!?!
N: Girl it’s a lot and you know I don’t want to talk about my clients’ cases I like respecting their privacy but yea he’s going through stuff anyways I’m going to get ready for when he comes so just buzz me when he’s here please.
M: mmhmm I will for sure and thank you for breakfast sweetie
N: no problem girl you know I got you
As Mercedes left Noni’s office, Noni couldn’t help but laugh at Mercedes’s comment. She was one-of-a-kind alright. She always knew the right things to say; and indeed she was a good friend. Noni couldn’t help but to look in the mirror fixing her pin-striped suit thinking “damn, am I really glowing? (shaking her head). That girl doesn’t know what she talking about.”
While Noni started to get ready for her meeting with Trey, Mr. Steal Yo Girl walked into the building with Lonzo and Dontae and of course Cici was there too.
Mercedes saw them as The Unit walked up to her desk. Seeing Trey still gave her butterflies in her stomach too. Trey just had that charm to make your stomach do flips without doing anything. Trey walked up to Mercedes’s desk.
T: hey beautiful
M: hi Mr. Neverson
T: babe call me Trey
M: I’m sorry I’m suppose to keep it professional in the office Ms. Virani prefers it that way
T: ohh so she plays hard and works just as hard huh?
M: yes sir pretty much that’s just how she likes it
T: well could you please let Ms. Virani know that I’m here (he said with a smirk)
M: right on it (pages Noni) Ms. Virani Mr. Neverson is here to see you
N: ok let him come in
M: (looks at Trey) she’s ready for you sir
Trey walked into Noni’s office and saw her sitting so perfectly in her big executive chair.
T: damn you really know how to make it look like you’re important huh?
N: I have a very important career Mr. Neverson I designed my office to fit the atmosphere of my workplace by the way nice of you to actually come on time for this meeting (laughs)
T: (laughs) so I see you got jokes huh? And it makes me feel great to know I’m one of your clients now and best believe that this isn’t the only time I’ll need you.
N: that is really nice to know but let’s get down to business for today. So you’re here to get the paperwork for a divorce?
T: yea I can’t believe I’m even in here talking about this but hey it is what it is right?
N: sometimes things just don’t work out that only means there’s something better out there just waiting to spring upon you.
T: very true
N: so I know it’s not my place to ask but I have to for professional reasons….what’s the reason that you are here to file for a divorce?
T: nah baby its cool I understand. But I’m here because I caught Sheena cheating on me after that fundraiser the other night.
N: (shocked) wow seriously? That’s just insane, but Trey you talked to me about the divorce at the fundraiser?
T: haha well don’t you have a great memory? (he said sarcastically) even before I caught her cheating there was just so many things wrong with the marriage it just felt like we were falling apart.
N: well that’s not a good thing. But luckily for you we live in the state of Florida and getting a divorce here isn’t as complicated. Basically are you living with your wife currently?
T: no I moved out over the weekend I have my own condo now
N: alright I’ll need the address for that condo and the address of where the other spouse is living and we’ll file this divorce under the fault of Sheena committing adultery. Now you didn’t have any children right?
T: no maam sure didn’t
N: do you know if you’re expecting a child?
T: no we’re not and even if we were I wouldn’t know if it was mine anymore.
N: well we’re going to have to make her take a pregnancy test and if is pregnant we’re going to have to wait and get a DNA test done.
T: wow well I guess I gotta do what I gotta do then huh?
N: I know divorces aren’t easy but sometimes the toughest things we grow through makes us a lot stronger than the average person. Life isn’t perfect, believe me I know.
T: well I mean everyone lives a different complicated life and it makes us stronger in its own way so I guess let’s get this started then.
N: well I have to ask, if she is pregnant with your child are you willing to pay child support and spend time with the child?
T: of course that’s my child regardless of what the mother did I will not let the child pay for his mother’s and mine mistakes.
N: ok I just need to know that for legal purposes
Trey looked at Noni as she was jotting down all the notes and thought “wow she really makes me feel so comfortable around her like I could be her best friend or something she’s such a sweetheart but so professional at the same time I never thought I could trust anyone like this but I guess I’m going to have to see where this goes”.
N: (looks up) alright well are you ready to file this complaint?
T: let’s get to it
N: alright so did you two sign a pre-up before you got married?
T: yes we did anything I bought before the marriage will remain mine if the marriage ever ended and anything we bought together afterwards would be either spilt or she would be able to call her own
N: alright so in the alimony do you want to split the property you both owned?
T: honestly she can have that house car and everything we both after the marriage I have another condo that I’m currently living in and another house in the suburbs of Miami that I bought before we got married.
N: sounds good now you don’t have to go to court if both of you agree upon the divorce and all the clauses under the agreement. She is allowed to review her copy of the compliant with her own attorney and make any changes you agree to, which means she and her lawyer can come meet with us and we’ll settle it face to face, now if for any reason you two cannot agree to any of the clauses we will have to take this to court. If you two do completely agree with the divorce and its clauses both of you will sign the papers and I’ll send it off to the superior court and you two will be divorced within 31 days. Is all of this clear to you Mr. Neverson
T: yes maam it sure it
N: alright well I have the complaint written up and have asked her to take a pregnancy test and sent a copy of those results to me so I can file that with all the other paperwork.
T: thank you so much you have no idea how much I appreciate this, but I do have one thing I have to ask from you.
N: and what may that be Mr. Neverson?
T: can we keep all this divorce talk on the low until the divorce is finalized?
N: Mr. Neverson I told you earlier anything said in this room is confidential I understand that the media is horrible believe me I know but I respect your privacy and you as a person so I solely promise that I will make sure nothing is said outside this room or to anyone else other than the two of us
T: thank you baby I really do appreciate that a lot.
N: you can always count on me Mr. Neverson
Trey got up to leave and Noni walked him to the door
T: well now that the meeting is over mind if we go back to being not so professional?
N: haha well there’s only one problem with that I always stay professional in my office area but when I leave and I see you around I’ll make sure not to be too professional with you deal?
T: sounds great see you later Ms. Virani
N: bye Mr. Neverson have a great day
Noni closed the door behind her as she went back to her desk. As Trey was leaving he winked at Mercedes.
T: guess I’ll be seeing you again soon babe by the way Noni is really dead on professional its really sexy let her know I said that ok?
M: haha tell me about it she’s a workaholic (shaking her head) but hey its gotten her career this far and she enjoys it but I will let her know
T: thanks bye love
M: your welcome, bye Mr. Neverson
Seconds after Trey left the firm Mercedes rushed into Noni’s office.
M: alright Noni the game is up what’s going on?
N: (startled) child if you don’t calm yourself down we gon have problems!
M: tell me you’re not glowing and all happy because you have Trey as a client now?
N: girl no but hey having him pay my bills for a change is a bonus haha but no I had an amazing date last night
M: ooooooooo I wanna hear more
N: how about we go out for drinks after work and I’ll tell you all about it
M: sounds good to me.
Mercedes got up to leave and as she went back to her desk a person walked in with a bouquet of flowers.
M: hi may I help you?
DM: yes these are for Ms. Anderson
M: well that’s me I’ll sign for them
DM: here you go
Mercedes signed for the flowers and looked at the card as the deliver-man left. The card said “decided to send these to you because I missed you dinner tonight? Text me a Y for “yes” and N for “no” love you baby” signed Sammie Baby. Mercedes sat there smiling as Noni walked out and saw a huge bouquet of flowers.
N: awwww look at Sammie he got you all cheesing and stuff aint he a sweetheart?
M: yea he really is. Do you mind if I cancel on drinks after work Sammie wants to go out since he’s been working and I’ve been busy too?
N: girl yes go you need to keep your hubby happy I’ll just tell you tomorrow or something I’m not worried about it plus it’ll give me time to go home and have time to myself tonight.
M: thanks but I do wanna hear about everything
N: I got you haha
M: what do you want me to order for lunch?
N: ummmm let’s have some Chinese?
M: sounds good!
Mercedes called the Chinese restaurant across the street as Noni went back in her office. Noni took a look at her phone; she had a text message from Fab. “hey baby I hope you’re not stressing too much over there today I was just thinking about you so I decided to text you and see how you were doing” she texted back “aww baby you’re too cute I’m doing huge just met with a couple of clients about to have some lunch how are you doing?” a couple minutes later Noni got a message saying “I’m doing great just working at the studio did you want to do something this weekend?” Noni thought “man Fab really wants to see me again that’s too cute” she replied “what did you have in mind?” Fab replied “how about we go to the aquarium, I hope I’m not rushing you or pushing you its just I had a great time and I really want us to make it long term” Noni saw that and started smiling so big her cheeks hurt “aww baby I hope we work out too I would love to be your girl I can’t wait to see you this weekend I guess the fact that we’ve known each other for a while makes this relationship 20x better huh?” Fab replied “of course but I’m going to let you get back to work and talk to you later tonight?” Noni said “sure thing baby talk to you tonight” Noni started thinking “man John is just an amazing guy maybe this relationship will work out and if it does I’m sure we’ll be able to always keep each other happy because we’ve been friends before we started this relationship.”
Meanwhile Trey called up Sheena.
S: so you’re just not coming home anymore?
T: no cause that’s not a home and I’m perfectly fine where I am which is far away from you as possible
S: (starts to cry) Trey baby look I’m so sorry about what happened
T: nah Sheena fuck that I don’t want to hear that! You’re only sorry because you got caught if you really felt bad about the whole cheating situation then you wouldn’t have waited til you got caught actually you’ve never cheated in the first place but look I’m already filing divorce papers but they need you to take a pregnancy test just to make sure you’re not pregnant with my baby so we wont have complications later on in the divorce process.
S: so we’re really doing this huh?
T: yes we are I can’t trust you and plus we’ve been falling out so no reason to stay married anymore I’ve officially lost respect for you and I can’t be with someone I have no respect for.
S: alright I’ll go get the test done right away and send you the reports by 6:00 ok?
T: Thank you, take care of yourself bye
S: goodbye Trey
Throughout the day Noni had lunch met with a couple more clients and then finally went home. Noni pulled up to her condo complex and handed William her keys. She decided she’d go to the gym tonight too since she had some extra time. She went upstairs changed into her workout clothes and went to her gym. As she walked into the gym she saw Trey again. It didn’t surprise her anymore seemed like he was everywhere she was. She waved at him and just went on to her workout as she was finishing up and getting ready to leave Trey came up to her.
T: hey Ms. Virani how was that workout
N: haha you funny you know you don’t have to be formal around me outside my office right Trigga
T: oh alright Noni Juice
N: so that’s my nickname for you know Noni Juice for real though?

T: not much by the way I know something about you

Noni thought “oh my god does Trey know about her and Loso ugh this is so not cool!”
N: yea what about it?
T: so you really gon make me say it
N: Trey stop playin and tell me what you know!
T: that he’s your new boo

N: so she’s not pregnant right?
T: definitely not pregnant thank the lord

Noni and Trey walked to Trey’s condo. Trey opened the door and walked inside.
T: Noni Juice you know you’re allowed inside right I’m not gonna bite I promise
N: haha real funny I don’t think you’d ever have that pleasure trust me
T: oh well since you think you’re so fabulous
N: hey all I know is I’m a good woman with a good head on her shoulders and men work their butts off trying to find a girl like me
T: well that’s true to be honest and hey honestly I really want us to be good friends so I want you to know if you have anything you want to talk about you can call me or just come on up if I’m home just text or call first cause I don’t need you walking in when well you know
N: hahaha believe me that makes two of us
Trey handed Noni the test results
N: well that’s all we needed to know hopefully you wont go back and do the grown with her
T: baby please after meeting you I’ve been convinced that there are better females than her out here in this world I’m not even looking for love anymore
N: good don’t ever go looking for love cause that’s when you end up settling and you never want to do that when it comes to love
T: you know what that is very true and very smart kudos Noni
N: haha reason why I never look for love I just keep living cause I know I have to settle down one day and I’m not in a rush to do it
T: you know I’m starting to like you more and more every time we talk you’re just an interesting person who when I talk to I feel like you know more about life
N: trust me I’ve been through a lot especially when it comes to relationships and being successful how do you think I am where I am now

T: I know I know you have to go I get it hahaha go on and give yourself some time I’m about to head out anyways
N: alright have fun but be safe
T: I will thanks
Noni started to leave and Trey walked her out
T: hey I don’t get a hug?
N: of course you do
Noni hugged Trey she just loved his hugs they felt so warm and comforting they were just perfect. As she started to walk away Trey started to think “man she seems so perfect Loso’s one lucky dude” Noni walked into her condo only to find Tia eating the pasta that she had brought home last night from her date.
N: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Tia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
T: girl don’t go having a heart attack where have you been? I’ve been here for an hour now!
N: girl oh my gosh first off let me just say Trey Songz now lives in the same building as us secondly he’s one of my newest clients and third I’m dating Fabolous.
T: ok ok ok wait what the hell has been happening?! I leave for a week and all of sudden the whole world changes whats going on missy?
N: well I went to that fundraiser right and apparently Trey needed a lawyer, he’s going through some personal ish that I’m not allowed to talk about hope you understand, but yea so I became his lawyer. Well whatever Trey’s going through he had to come and move here so now he lives in the same building as us and then me and Fab started talking from the fundraiser and well he asked me out we went out last night reason why there’s that chicken alfredo in the fridge and we’re going out this weekend too.
T: alright well I see I missed a lot I promise never to leave like that again haha but that’s really cool about the whole Trey thing God bless his soul and help him through his obstacles right now and I’m so happy for you and Loso you’ve loved him forever and now things are finally working out yay!
N: well girl I’m beat so I’m going to take a nice hot shower and go to sleep see you in the morning!
T: good night love
As Noni got out of the shower and changed into her night clothes she got a call from John.
N: hey baby
J: hey sweetie what are you up to
N: nothing just about to hop into bed
J: mind talking to me as you fall asleep
N: nope not at all
Noni and John talked all night until she fell asleep. Rest of the week went by smoothly Noni told Mercedes about what was going on with everything and Mercedes was really happy for her finally Noni had found love once again after 4 years of just being single. Noni helped Trey file his divorce papers and everything went smoothly with that Sheena agreed to all the terms and signed the papers so that Trey and her wouldn’t have to take it to court. Then before Noni knew it was Saturday and her date with Fab at the Aquarium was here. Noni decided to be a little more casual with this one she wore a sun dress and some heels and straightened her hair. Instead of her big flashy jewelry she just wore some studs and a one stone necklace. This time Loso insisted on picking her up from her place so she said that was fine and let him come over. Tia answered the door when Loso rang.
T: hey Loso how are you
L: hey Tia I’m great how are you?
T: I’m good come on in by the way Noni said she’ll be 10 more minutes
L: that’s 30 minutes right?
T: nope not in Noni’s language that’s 10 minutes
L: oh I see well hey she loves being on time and never late
T: that she does have a seat would you like something to drink
L: no I’m good thank you though
T: listen Loso Noni’s been through a lot when it comes to love don’t you dare hurt her or else I’m coming after you.
L: no need to worry about that I promise she’s an amazing girl and I don’t even want to hurt her.
T: good that’s what I like to hear I treat her like my own daughter only cause she’s so young but she’s got that mind of hers that got her this far.
L: she’s a smart girl who knows how to handle herself
Just then Noni walked out looking amazing like she always does. Loso just couldn’t take his eyes off of her. She always looked just gorgeous from her hair down to her shoes. She definitely knew how to accessorize herself.
N: hey baby
L: hey you ready to go babe
N: yea (she looked over at Tia) don’t wait up for me
T: mmhmm you just stay outta trouble you hear me missy
N: I got this I’m grown I know how to handle myself
T: yea I know but you know I still worry
N: yea I know. Well good night and see you in the morning
T: sounds good take care
L: bye Tia
T: bye Loso
As Noni and Loso walked out they ran into Trey.
T: awww look at you two love birds
N: shut up Trey (shook her head)
L: haha well what can I say she has me falling for her so fast I can’t stop
T: yea she’s a great person and don’t you dare hurt her
L: yo who’s side are you on? You’re supposed to be my homie
T: well she’s not gonna hurt you I guarantee that.
L: hey you never know
N: I think I need to worry more about my hair catching on fire than Loso hurting me.
T: girl you always got jokes huh
N: well actually YOU didn’t even try to save the girl!
T: haha alright I got you Noni Juice
L: alright you two cut it out Noni we’re gonna be late
N: well its Trey’s fault
T: alright you know what we’ll end this later I don’t need you blaming me if YOU’RE late for your reservations
N: bye Trey
L: later man
T: have fun you two
Noni and Loso got in his Beemer and drove off to their destination. As they were walking around looking at all the exotic fish and underwater creatures Loso grabbed a hold of Noni’s hand. It just felt so perfect to Noni this was the kind of relationship Noni was looking for something new, going out, and having fun instead of always going to some celebrity appearance or walking the red carpet. She loved that it was just the two of them and no one else.
L: are you enjoying yourself
N: this is just so perfect, how did you think of this place
L: well I know you have a pet fish and I knew you loved watching movies about the underwater creatures so I decided maybe you’d enjoy this
N: I love it
L: well would you like to go and eat under all the fish
N: yes please
L: let’s go
Noni and Loso made their way to the restaurant inside of the aquarium. Noni just loved the scenic environment as the fish swam around them. After they finished their dinner they walked around some more to digest their food and then Loso took Noni back to her place. As Noni was about to get out of his car he grabbed her arm and pulled her to him.
L: I had a great time
N: I really enjoyed tonight it was really nice.
Loso pulled her in closer; Noni was starting to get those butterflies in her stomach again. As Loso’s lips touched hers she just embraced them. Noni didn’t want this moment to end but she did have to get home. As they pulled away from the kiss she hugged him.
N: thank you for tonight it was simply amazing
L: baby every time I’m with you its amazing.
N: (smiles) I feel the same way
L: good night I’ll call you later tonight
N: sounds good
As Noni walked upstairs she saw Trey walking into his condo with another female and she shook her head “this guy just gets any girl he wants well besides me but still leave it up to Trigga Trey to take another man’s girl” she smiled and made her way into her apartment changed and got into bed. Five minutes later her phone rang and of course it was Fabolous, they talked up until she fell asleep. The next morning she told Tia all about her date.
