    Passion Pain & Pleasure

    “OH MY GOD! HOW DID I GET THIS BLOOD ON ME?” I screamed. Trey held me.

    “Baby are you okay?”

    “I don’t know. What’s going on Trey? Am I bleeding? Have I been shot?”

    “No baby you’re gonna be fine. Now listen to me I want you to go to the house.” I see him laying there.

    “Is he dead Trey? Is he…” Trey tried to calm me.

    “Baby just listen and do what I said and go to the house.”

    “No Trey! I’m not leaving you alone to deal with this.”

    “Shanell I’m not asking you baby now go.”

    “Oh my God! He’s dead isn’t he?” I was hysterical, an emotional wreck. Trey was telling me to go, but I couldn’t move. I was at a standstill frozen as I stared at El’s bloody body. Seconds later Buggzi and Marcus appeared. They shockingly saw El’s body laying there. They looked at me and Trey and noticed the blood on our clothes. Then moments later my dad came out of nowhere or maybe he was there with them. I didn’t really know. Everything just seemed like it was moving so fast. Then his brother Frank came rushing in. They noticed Trey who was now kneeling down beside El’s body and the gun on the side of him. Buggzi turns to Trey.

    “Trey man you need to get out of here.” My dad and Trey looked at each other. My dad agreed.

    “He’s right. Take Shanell out of here too. We’ll handle this. You two go!” Marcus tried to escort Trey out.

    “Wait a minute. I just wanna make sure this mofucker dead.” Trey checked to see if he could feel a pulse. There was nothing. “May you rest in as much peace as you gave mofucker.” Marcus helped Trey up.

    “Come on man we gotta hurry up and get ya’ll two out of here.” My uncle Frank tells me and Trey to come with him to the house first, so we can clean ourselves up. We leave with him while my dad and the others stay behind. Then Elliot came in. He saw the dead body lying on the floor in the stables. He looked petrified. He quickly walked over to it. He recognizes the face.

    “That’s my son.” Then he looks around at my dad, Buggzi and Marcus. “Who killed my son!”

    Funny how time flies when you’re having fun. Me and Trey have been so happy and even more fulfilled since the births of Treyonna and Tremaine Jr. ...Trejay we call him. They are seven months now, growing stronger by the day and trying to get into everything. Not only did we have our hands full with them, but also the building of our new home. What a process to have to go through along with adjusting to being new parents. I’m glad that part of it is finally over and we will be moving in. I can’t wait. The home is so beautiful. It’s even bigger than this one but I love it. I was a bit apprehensive about the size because I barely was handling being in this one. Then the more we would go over and check on it’s progression and how everything started coming together the more excited I got about it. The lot size itself is huge. It’s 38,402 sq. ft. Trey had them build a playground for the twins, basketball courts, we have an outdoor whirlpool built into our in ground pool, bar and a barbeque pavilion. The house itself is 22,000 sq. ft.

    Instead of having the guest house like before Trey had them build an attached guest/staff wing with separate entrances so the nanny and bodyguards could now have there own personal space. The house also was guard gated so no one could come on the premises without being let in. There were security cameras every where. Trey knew El was still on the loose and didn’t want to take any chances. We had a lot of land so he wanted to be prepared. The house is very spacious. Including the rooms for the bodyguards we had a total of eleven bedrooms and twelve baths. The house came with a home theater, game room, studio and a gym. A few new features added to it that we didn’t have in the old house were an elevator, wine cellar and a complete spa room. I mean Trey went all out when he had this house built. I couldn‘t believe it. What fun it’s going to be keeping up with the twins now.

    *******

    Trey and I have been in our new home for two weeks now. I remember on our first night here after I had put the twins down for bed. Trey had a candle lit night cap waiting for me in the bedroom over in our sitting area. The first thing I noticed were the candles. They
    illuminated the room and set such a romantic tone. Sitting on the small coffee table were two strawberry tarts with whipped cream accompanied with some sparkling cider. I wasn’t drinking any alcohol yet since I was nursing so that was my drink of choice while Trey had a stash of champagne on the side of his seat. I loved how romantic he could be at times and this I didn’t even see coming.

    He told me he wanted to do this to show how much he appreciates me and everything that I do while he’s on the road. During most of this process he was away promoting his latest album “Passion Pain and Pleasure” so a lot of the decision making was on me. Sometimes conference calls were necessary because there were some things that he needed to handle but other than that I called the shots. He said he knows the wedding has been taking a back seat to a lot of unfortunate things and now that we’re in our home he wants us to take this time right now to pick a date. I didn’t even notice the small calendar that was sitting there. I was so blown away by everything else that I didn’t even pay any attention to it. But that wasn’t all he had in store. Then he took out a small jewelry box and handed it to me.
    “Open it.” Trey sat down in the chair and watched me as I opened the pretty blue box. My mouth was on the floor. It was a beautiful sterling heart shaped locket and chain. I was speechless. It had the words I love you engraved on the outside of it. Then when I opened it, it had a picture of Treyonna and Trejay on each side. I instantly had tears in my eyes. I couldn’t believe he found the time to do this. He knew he was going to be rewarded for this act tonight. I walked around the table and sat on his lap. I leaned into him and kissed his soft lips gently, slowly savoring them.

    “You are so good to me you know that?”

    “Cause I love you.”

    “I love you too…baby thank you.”

    “You’re welcome. Here lemme put it on for you.” I turned a little so Trey could slip it on my neck. I couldn’t stop touching it. I really loved it.

    “Trey if you’re doing this because you think I may be feeling a certain way because we haven’t gotten married yet baby I don’t.”

    “No. I’m not doing it because of that at all. Listen to me, when I asked you to be my wife it’s because it’s what I want. I’m just ready to make us a complete family.”

    “I already feel like I’m your wife Mr. Neverson. In every aspect of the word and I can’t wait to make it official.” We kiss each other once more and then I pick up one of the tarts and feed it amongst the two of us as I sit on his lap. We made a toast to each other, ate a little more and then started looking over the calendar and discussing what all Trey had coming up. We currently were in the month of June so we decided on August 2nd of the following year which would give us plenty of time to plan. Plus that’s when Trey would have a window of time freed up to be around for rehearsals and travel for our honey moon.

    “Oh babe you know we have my mom and dads anniversary celebration to go to next weekend.”

    “Yeah I know. We staying from Friday to Monday right?”

    “Yeah…is that still ok with you?”

    “Oh nah it’s cool baby I was just making sure. So who gone be with Treyonna and Trejay while we‘re at the dinner?”

    “Trey you know my parents are going to want them there.”

    “I don’t know about that Shanell. I mean people are gonna be drinkin n’ shit. We can’t have them around that.”

    “I thought about that too along with the fact that we’re going to be out late.”

    “They’ll understand if we don’t bring ‘em.”

    “Wait Trey are you talking about not taking them at all?”

    “No, just not at the party baby.”

    “I guess I’ll have to ask Mrs. Vanessa to go with us then. I just hate to ask her to come when we really only need her for that one night plus I told her she could have off since we‘d be gone.”

    “She don’t mind being with them.”

    “I know…” Suddenly we hear Trejay crying through the baby monitor. Trey gets up.

    “I’ll go get him.”

    “Ok.” While Trey went to go check on him I went ahead and cleaned up the glasses and left over dessert that was sitting on the table. I blew out all the candles and took everything down to the kitchen. When I walked in there Mrs. Vanessa was there. She’s the twins nanny. I really needed some additional help with them so me and Trey looked into having someone assist with that. Mrs. Vanessa has been with us since the twins were six weeks old. She’s been great too. I remember when Trey and I first saw her. We were so thrown by her uncanny likeness to Monique from “The Monique Show” and “The Parkers.” She’s not as big as her but man her looks resemble her so much. Her personality is not as big either but she’s the sweetest lady with the biggest heart. She’s forty years of age, a widow and has never had any children but she’s been a nanny for years and considers all the families she’s assisted with like her own. She was unloading the dishwasher.

    “Hey Mrs. Vanessa.”

    “Hey there baby!” She notices the dishes in my hand. “Oh let me take that for you.”

    “I got it Mrs. Vanessa thank you. You go ahead and finish what you were doing.”

    “Is that a new piece of jewelry I see around your neck?” I touch it and smile.

    “It is.” I walk a little closer to Mrs. Vanessa and show it to her.

    “Aw look at my babies. That’s an exquisite piece of jewelry you got there Shanell. That man got a good eye for the finer things that’s for sure.”

    “I know. That’s why he spotted me.” That made Mrs. Vanessa laugh.

    “Speak it miss lady. I heard that! My babies still sleeping?”

    “Well Trejay was just fussing so Trey’s with him right now. Hopefully he didn’t wake Treyonna.”

    “She seems to sleep pretty good when he’s up even if he is making a lot of noise.”

    “Yeah but she can have her moments though.”

    “I know it.”

    “Mrs. Vanessa would you mind accompanying me and Trey next weekend to Atlanta. We decided not to bring the babies to my parents anniversary party. It would really mean a lot to us if you could come. I know you were given time off which you still will get…”

    “Oh chile you know I don’t have a problem taking care of those two.”

    “I know. I just feel bad since I gave you the weekend off and I hate to inconvenience you by needing you now.”

    “It’s not an inconvenience and it‘s no problem at all.”

    “Ok great. Thank you Mrs. Vanessa.”

    “You’re welcome. Did you need anything done before I head on back to my room?”

    “Nope! You go ahead and enjoy the rest of your night.”

    “I will. I gotta date with my soaps. Tell Trey I said goodnight and I’ll see you two in the morning.”

    “Ok.” Mrs. Vanessa leaves out of the kitchen. I finish up the little bit of dishes that we had and then head back up to the bedroom. I noticed Trey was back in the room on the terrace walking around with Trejay putting him back to sleep. It was a beautiful night out. Trejay was so spoiled. He is such a character for seven months. He demands so much attention already. Everyone says he looks just like me with Treys energetic personality and Treyonna looks like Trey. I walked over to Trey and snuck a kiss on Trejay’s cheek as he laid his head on Trey’s shoulder.

    “Where mine at?”

    “Oh don’t worry daddy. I’ll take care of you once you come to bed.” I left Trey alone with his son and went and got in the shower. Meanwhile Trey went and put Trejay back in his crib. As soon as he left out the twins room his phone rang.

    “Yo man why you keep calling my phone?”

    “Trey you know I have no issues with you. I’m only doing as my sister asked and she really needs you to make a visit. This time she told me to tell you and these are her words not mine, that if you don’t want your sex life suddenly leaked to the public then you need to come see her.”

    “Fuck she mean!”

    “I don’t know.”

    “She making threats now?”

    “Look that’s what she told me to tell you. Believe it or not I’m tired of going back and forth trying to get you to see her my damn self. But it is my sister so I’m sure you can understand my plight.”

    “Nah I don’t, cause not too long ago you was blackmailing her ass.”

    “That was before I knew how deep seeded her issues were.”

    “Lemme get a pen and some paper and take down her information…hold on.” Trey went to find something to write on and with. “Alright where she at?” Summer gave him all the details and then they hung up. I was coming out of the bathroom in my towel and noticed Trey looking at a piece of paper.

    "Baby what's that?"

    “I just got a call from Summer again. She said Autumn wants me to come see her.”

    “Autumns been wanting you to come see her for a while now. What’s so new about that?”

    “Now it seems like she tryna make a threat.”

    “By saying what?”

    "It sound like she tryna start some bullshit with that DVD of the two of us."

    “I am so tired of this! Trey when is it gonna end?” Trey tries to calm me.

    “Look everything gone be alright ok? I think this time I‘ma go see her doe.” All I could do was shake my head instantly irritated. “Baby I know you don’t like the idea of me going but it’s the only way to possibly squash this.”

    “Well I’m going with you then.” Trey cut his eyes at me like I said something offensive.

    “No. I don’t want you going no where near her.”

    “I think if would be good for me to see her Trey. She tried to kill me! I have yet to express any of my feelings about that to her, Crystal and Nikki.”

    “I’m not letting you go see her. You hear me?” I couldn’t believe how adamant he was about it.

    “Trey you should understand why I wanna talk to Autumn. Baby she’s behind bars it’s not like she can do anything to me. Why are you so set against me going?”

    “After everything you’ve been through do you have to ask? Whatchu think I’m gonna be cool with the idea of you visiting her after all the shit she done did to you? Shanell her, Crystal and Nikki are the last people I want you around.”

    “But Trey…”

    “I don’t trust them baby. I don’t give a fuck about her being behind nobodies damn bars neither.”

    “Trey I’m not gonna run away anymore. This is something that I need to do for me. I get that you only want to protect me but baby I’ve been thinking about this and I really do want to confront them.”

    “Nah…you ain’t going.”

    “Here we go again with you telling me what I can and cannot do.”

    “You right. On this I am, so get what ever plans you had of making a visit out ya head because I‘m telling you no. Don’t think you gone pull some slick shit either…I mean it Shanell.” I stood by Trey with no words as I looked at him infuriated. His unwavering stance really was upsetting. I was so angry with him. I walked away and put my panties and tank top on to sleep in. He knew what time it was immediately.

    “Oh so now you being like that?” I took the decorative pillows off the bed and aggressively put them in the chest. Trey stood there watching me as I went back and forth. Then he walks over to me and stands in front of me.

    “So you just gone go to bed like dat and stay mad at me?” My eyes let him know that’s exactly what was about to happen. I walked away from him and turned out the light. He nodded his head.

    “A‘ight.” Then he walks out the room. I got under the covers and laid there. All these thoughts entered my mind. How dare he feel like it’s ok for him to go see Autumn but I can’t. I don’t care what the circumstances are surrounding the visit. Him out of all people should know how important this is to me. He should want me to go if I feel it’s necessary. Oh he makes me sick sometimes. I don’t know Tremaine. You may just have to be mad with me on this one.

    We never did come to an agreement that night. At least I never agreed. Damn this! I know what he said, but I’m going to make it a point to see Autumn, Crystal and Nikki. He’s not calling all the shots anymore. Shanell is back with a vengeance. I love you baby, but I’m doing things my way this time...

    *******

    sec-a

    Autumn could now make her phone call for the night so she decided to call Summer to check on the things she asked of her.

    “Oh good you are home. Well any luck?”

    “I called Trey like you asked and gave him the information on where to come see you and about the recorded encounter of the two of you being shown.”

    “Is he going to come?”

    “Autumn I don’t know! Gosh! He didn’t say.”

    “Ok well at least he knows. You still remember what I told you to do in case he doesn’t show up right?”

    “Yes! I know. Why do I have to be put in the middle of your dirty work all the time. I’m tired of it.”

    “Well had you not let him come in my room in the first place I wouldn’t be needing your help right now.”

    “You’ve been needing my help way before now Autumn. I have covered for you time and time again plus been your scapegoat. Daddy doesn’t trust me now because of you, starting with the accident that you were in with his car and used my name and gave my license number. It was your company that was over the house and stole their lap top and you blamed it on my friends. You are a total bitch when it comes to me. Well now it’s your turn to see how using people for your own benefit feels. I changed my mind, I will not black male Trey for you with this taping. Find somebody else to do your dirty work.”

    “Ugh! Summer! You can’t be serious! Don’t flake out on me now.”

    “You’re the flake! Trying to kill someone over a man. My sister is a stupid bitch!”

    “Bitch! You’re the one who’s been hiding the fact that she’s a lesbian from them afraid to admit it. I swear Summer if you don’t help me I will tell.”

    “I don’t care! That’s nothing compared to the damage you have caused this family. You cost daddy his practice. Anything you say to him will be nothing compared to what you have done so tell him. I don’t care!”

    Autumn started crying. She couldn’t believe her sister wasn’t going to help her out in this time of need.

    *******

    “So Nikki are you ever going to get out of here?”

    “I don’t know Charmaine. Why can’t Trey understand that everything I did was because I love him. How is love crazy?”

    “Nikki love isn’t what’s crazy. It’s your behavior.”

    “Charmaine you know I’m not crazy but if it’s going to keep me from going to jail then they can classify me as a nut case all day long.”

    “Nikki do you feel any regret for any of the things that you’ve done?”

    “Yeah. I regret that it didn’t work and I still don’t have Trey. I have to try harder.”

    “Nikki Trey is happy with Shanell. They have a family together now. You think you’re really able to come in between that?”

    “Whose side are you on?”

    “I’m on yours but…”

    “Those are my babies!” she snapped. “She took my family! My life! I want it back!”

    Charmaine felt sorry for her friend. She was thinking Nikki was in this state because of the loss of Angel. She had no idea how sick Nikki really was.

    “Well girlfriend I hope you get better. I really miss you and I‘ll always be here for you.” Nikki looked insulted.

    “Get better? I just told you Charmaine there ain’t nothing wrong with me. My lawyer seems to think I’m suffering from this Post Traumatic Stress thing along with these doctors, but I’m fine.”

    “You’re in a damn mental institution still delusional about Trey. That’s not fine! Nikki there is a real reason why you’re here. You really do need help.” Nikki smiles at Charmaine.

    “Not in the least. Don’t you see? Trey could’ve shot me in that cabin but he didn’t. Why? Because part of him still loves me. I’m not delusional about that at all. I’ll take my pills and be a good girl until the day comes when we meet up again. It‘s only a matter of time before I get my family back. Believe me Charmaine I will get my family back.”

    *******

    Paige had a visit to go see Crystal. She couldn’t believe the mess that her and Nikki caused Shanell and Trey. She wasn’t sure how she was going to act when she saw Crystal but she knew it was imperative that she saw her. When she arrived at the women’s correctional facility she checked in and had a seat. Once it was time they were taken back. She saw Crystal sitting at a table that was over by a small window so she went over to her. She gave her a hug and then had a seat.

    “I didn’t think you were going to come.”

    “I wasn’t sure if I was going to come this time either but I knew I was going to be seeing you. You know Crystal Shanell and Trey are my friends. You were my best friend. How could you do this to them?”

    “So is this what this visit is going to be about? You criticizing me for the choices that I made? Believe me Paige if I had to do this over again I would. I never would have listened to El. I can’t even tell you why I did.”

    “But you knew he was bad news. You knew that. I never knew you would do such cruel things and for what money? Money that you don’t even have. Do you honestly think that man was going to give you anything for helping him?”

    “Like I said if I could do things over I would, but I can’t. I don’t need you holding me accountable when the judge has already saw to it that I will pay for what I've done.”

    “Do you know that I feel responsible for this? I feel like if I would have never introduced Shanell to you that her life would be different. I can’t even face her or Trey because of it.”

    “What about my life? I’m your best friend not her.”

    “You were my best friend but no one who calls themselves my friend would ever torcher another human being who’s pregnant. Put her through hell because of the man that she is involved with and teams up with her ex just for money. I don’t want any friends like that.”

    “Then why are you here?”

    “To let you know that I don’t feel sorry for you not one bit. You deserve to be here and what ever sentence that was given to you. You need to also be thanking God that she didn’t lose those babies or her life.”

    “I don’t need you to be judging me.”

    “I know. You need me to pray for you and I will. You take care of yourself while you’re in here. It wouldn’t hurt too if you did a little praying yourself.” Then Paige winks at her and sat at an empty table till it was time to leave.

    *******

    Tomorrow we’ll be flying to Atlanta to be there for my parents anniversary party so today we’ve been packing getting ready to make this trip. I’m really excited about going home. My auntie Sharon is going to be there with Ricky and Raven. It’s gonna feel good to see everyone and have everyone see the twins. Myself and Mrs. Vanessa was in the twins room packing their things while Trey was in their toy room keeping them occupied. We heard the buzzer sound off letting us know someone was at the gate. Evan notified me of who it was before he let them enter. It was Lynn. She lives in the neighborhood too and had been telling me that she was going to come by once we were settled. I guess she decided to make it over today. I was surprised she wasn’t at work. I told Mrs. Vanessa I would be back and went downstairs to meet Lynn at the door. She was so excited.

    “Hey girlfriend!”

    “Hey!”

    “Shanell this is beautiful. I can’t wait to see the rest of it.”

    “Thank you. How come you’re not at work today?”

    “Oh I was there. I took a half day today. You know our vacation starts tomorrow so I had some things I wanted to do before Richard, me and the kids left.”

    “Oh yeah that’s right you guys are going on a cruise.”

    “Yes girl. This vacation couldn’t get here fast enough.”

    “Well let me show you around.”

    “Where’s the twins?”

    “They’re up in their toy room with Trey. We’ll see them when we go up there.” I showed Lynn the house downstairs and around outside first. Then we went upstairs and lastly I showed her the toy room where Trey was. When we went in there Trey was on the floor playing with the two of them while they were in their Exersaucers (stationary activity walkers). As soon as Trejay saw me he started acting like he wanted to cry and get out. Trey started talking to him.

    “Aw boy cut that out…come on man…you was just cool…here play with this.” Trey pulled down a hanging bumble bee that was in front of him on the walker. Trejay got quiet for a minute as he looked at it. Then he looked back at me whining. I went and picked him up. He was happy after that.” Lynn starts laughing at Trey.

    “Trey you looked like you were having more fun than they were. Reminiscing are we?”

    “Ha ha very funny Lynn.” She starts laughing. “How you doin baby?”

    “I’m wonderful. I love the house.”

    “Thank you. I appreciate dat. How‘s my man Richard?”

    “He’s good. He should be home right now actually.”

    “You should tell him to come through. I gotta poker table in the basement waiting for him to get whipped up on. He needa come see me.”

    “I don’t know about all that, my man is good, but I’ll let him know. Ok let me see miss onna…you mind Trey?”

    “Nah go head.” Trey gets up off the floor first then Lynn picks up Treyonna. Trey walks over to me and talks to Trejay. “You gone stop all that whining boy. Daddy gotta toughen you up.” Trejay looks at Trey smiling. Trey plays with him in my arms making him laugh. Then he gives him a kiss on the mouth. “I gotta few more things to finalize for the tour so I’m bout to get dressed and I’ll be back a little later.”

    “Ok babe.” Trey then gives me a kiss and leaves out the room. Suddenly he comes back.

    “Hold up.” He takes Treyonna out of Lynn’s arms and plays with her in the air real quick Then he gives her a kiss and back to Lynn. “Alright I’ll be back…can‘t leave out my baby girl.” Lynn was looking at him steady smiling.

    “He’s really good with them isn’t he?”

    “The best.” We put the babies down and got on the floor to play with them as we talked. She brings up Nikki.

Passion Pain & Pleasure

“OH MY GOD! HOW DID I GET THIS BLOOD ON ME?” I screamed. Trey held me.

“Baby are you okay?”

“I don’t know. What’s going on Trey? Am I bleeding? Have I been shot?”

“No baby you’re gonna be fine. Now listen to me I want you to go to the house.” I see him laying there.

“Is he dead Trey? Is he…” Trey tried to calm me.

“Baby just listen and do what I said and go to the house.”

“No Trey! I’m not leaving you alone to deal with this.”

“Shanell I’m not asking you baby now go.”

“Oh my God! He’s dead isn’t he?” I was hysterical, an emotional wreck. Trey was telling me to go, but I couldn’t move. I was at a standstill frozen as I stared at El’s bloody body. Seconds later Buggzi and Marcus appeared. They shockingly saw El’s body laying there. They looked at me and Trey and noticed the blood on our clothes. Then moments later my dad came out of nowhere or maybe he was there with them. I didn’t really know. Everything just seemed like it was moving so fast. Then his brother Frank came rushing in. They noticed Trey who was now kneeling down beside El’s body and the gun on the side of him. Buggzi turns to Trey.

“Trey man you need to get out of here.” My dad and Trey looked at each other. My dad agreed.

“He’s right. Take Shanell out of here too. We’ll handle this. You two go!” Marcus tried to escort Trey out.

“Wait a minute. I just wanna make sure this mofucker dead.” Trey checked to see if he could feel a pulse. There was nothing. “May you rest in as much peace as you gave mofucker.” Marcus helped Trey up.

“Come on man we gotta hurry up and get ya’ll two out of here.” My uncle Frank tells me and Trey to come with him to the house first, so we can clean ourselves up. We leave with him while my dad and the others stay behind. Then Elliot came in. He saw the dead body lying on the floor in the stables. He looked petrified. He quickly walked over to it. He recognizes the face.

“That’s my son.” Then he looks around at my dad, Buggzi and Marcus. “Who killed my son!”

weeks prior

Funny how time flies when you’re having fun. Me and Trey have been so happy and even more fulfilled since the births of Treyonna and Tremaine Jr. ...Trejay we call him. They are seven months now, growing stronger by the day and trying to get into everything. Not only did we have our hands full with them, but also the building of our new home. What a process to have to go through along with adjusting to being new parents. I’m glad that part of it is finally over and we will be moving in. I can’t wait. The home is so beautiful. It’s even bigger than this one but I love it. I was a bit apprehensive about the size because I barely was handling being in this one. Then the more we would go over and check on it’s progression and how everything started coming together the more excited I got about it. The lot size itself is huge. It’s 38,402 sq. ft. Trey had them build a playground for the twins, basketball courts, we have an outdoor whirlpool built into our in ground pool, bar and a barbeque pavilion. The house itself is 22,000 sq. ft.

Instead of having the guest house like before Trey had them build an attached guest/staff wing with separate entrances so the nanny and bodyguards could now have there own personal space. The house also was guard gated so no one could come on the premises without being let in. There were security cameras every where. Trey knew El was still on the loose and didn’t want to take any chances. We had a lot of land so he wanted to be prepared. The house is very spacious. Including the rooms for the bodyguards we had a total of eleven bedrooms and twelve baths. The house came with a home theater, game room, studio and a gym. A few new features added to it that we didn’t have in the old house were an elevator, wine cellar and a complete spa room. I mean Trey went all out when he had this house built. I couldn‘t believe it. What fun it’s going to be keeping up with the twins now.

*******

Trey and I have been in our new home for two weeks now. I remember on our first night here after I had put the twins down for bed. Trey had a candle lit night cap waiting for me in the bedroom over in our sitting area. The first thing I noticed were the candles. They
illuminated the room and set such a romantic tone. Sitting on the small coffee table were two strawberry tarts with whipped cream accompanied with some sparkling cider. I wasn’t drinking any alcohol yet since I was nursing so that was my drink of choice while Trey had a stash of champagne on the side of his seat. I loved how romantic he could be at times and this I didn’t even see coming.

He told me he wanted to do this to show how much he appreciates me and everything that I do while he’s on the road. During most of this process he was away promoting his latest album “Passion Pain and Pleasure” so a lot of the decision making was on me. Sometimes conference calls were necessary because there were some things that he needed to handle but other than that I called the shots. He said he knows the wedding has been taking a back seat to a lot of unfortunate things and now that we’re in our home he wants us to take this time right now to pick a date. I didn’t even notice the small calendar that was sitting there. I was so blown away by everything else that I didn’t even pay any attention to it. But that wasn’t all he had in store. Then he took out a small jewelry box and handed it to me.
“Open it.” Trey sat down in the chair and watched me as I opened the pretty blue box. My mouth was on the floor. It was a beautiful sterling heart shaped locket and chain. I was speechless. It had the words I love you engraved on the outside of it. Then when I opened it, it had a picture of Treyonna and Trejay on each side. I instantly had tears in my eyes. I couldn’t believe he found the time to do this. He knew he was going to be rewarded for this act tonight. I walked around the table and sat on his lap. I leaned into him and kissed his soft lips gently, slowly savoring them.

“You are so good to me you know that?”

“Cause I love you.”

“I love you too…baby thank you.”

“You’re welcome. Here lemme put it on for you.” I turned a little so Trey could slip it on my neck. I couldn’t stop touching it. I really loved it.

“Trey if you’re doing this because you think I may be feeling a certain way because we haven’t gotten married yet baby I don’t.”

“No. I’m not doing it because of that at all. Listen to me, when I asked you to be my wife it’s because it’s what I want. I’m just ready to make us a complete family.”

“I already feel like I’m your wife Mr. Neverson. In every aspect of the word and I can’t wait to make it official.” We kiss each other once more and then I pick up one of the tarts and feed it amongst the two of us as I sit on his lap. We made a toast to each other, ate a little more and then started looking over the calendar and discussing what all Trey had coming up. We currently were in the month of June so we decided on August 2nd of the following year which would give us plenty of time to plan. Plus that’s when Trey would have a window of time freed up to be around for rehearsals and travel for our honey moon.

“Oh babe you know we have my mom and dads anniversary celebration to go to next weekend.”

“Yeah I know. We staying from Friday to Monday right?”

“Yeah…is that still ok with you?”

“Oh nah it’s cool baby I was just making sure. So who gone be with Treyonna and Trejay while we‘re at the dinner?”

“Trey you know my parents are going to want them there.”

“I don’t know about that Shanell. I mean people are gonna be drinkin n’ shit. We can’t have them around that.”

“I thought about that too along with the fact that we’re going to be out late.”

“They’ll understand if we don’t bring ‘em.”

“Wait Trey are you talking about not taking them at all?”

“No, just not at the party baby.”

“I guess I’ll have to ask Mrs. Vanessa to go with us then. I just hate to ask her to come when we really only need her for that one night plus I told her she could have off since we‘d be gone.”

“She don’t mind being with them.”

“I know…” Suddenly we hear Trejay crying through the baby monitor. Trey gets up.

“I’ll go get him.”

“Ok.” While Trey went to go check on him I went ahead and cleaned up the glasses and left over dessert that was sitting on the table. I blew out all the candles and took everything down to the kitchen. When I walked in there Mrs. Vanessa was there. She’s the twins nanny. I really needed some additional help with them so me and Trey looked into having someone assist with that. Mrs. Vanessa has been with us since the twins were six weeks old. She’s been great too. I remember when Trey and I first saw her. We were so thrown by her uncanny likeness to Monique from “The Monique Show” and “The Parkers.” She’s not as big as her but man her looks resemble her so much. Her personality is not as big either but she’s the sweetest lady with the biggest heart. She’s forty years of age, a widow and has never had any children but she’s been a nanny for years and considers all the families she’s assisted with like her own. She was unloading the dishwasher.

“Hey Mrs. Vanessa.”

“Hey there baby!” She notices the dishes in my hand. “Oh let me take that for you.”

“I got it Mrs. Vanessa thank you. You go ahead and finish what you were doing.”

“Is that a new piece of jewelry I see around your neck?” I touch it and smile.

“It is.” I walk a little closer to Mrs. Vanessa and show it to her.

“Aw look at my babies. That’s an exquisite piece of jewelry you got there Shanell. That man got a good eye for the finer things that’s for sure.”

“I know. That’s why he spotted me.” That made Mrs. Vanessa laugh.

“Speak it miss lady. I heard that! My babies still sleeping?”

“Well Trejay was just fussing so Trey’s with him right now. Hopefully he didn’t wake Treyonna.”

“She seems to sleep pretty good when he’s up even if he is making a lot of noise.”

“Yeah but she can have her moments though.”

“I know it.”

“Mrs. Vanessa would you mind accompanying me and Trey next weekend to Atlanta. We decided not to bring the babies to my parents anniversary party. It would really mean a lot to us if you could come. I know you were given time off which you still will get…”

“Oh chile you know I don’t have a problem taking care of those two.”

“I know. I just feel bad since I gave you the weekend off and I hate to inconvenience you by needing you now.”

“It’s not an inconvenience and it‘s no problem at all.”

“Ok great. Thank you Mrs. Vanessa.”

“You’re welcome. Did you need anything done before I head on back to my room?”

“Nope! You go ahead and enjoy the rest of your night.”

“I will. I gotta date with my soaps. Tell Trey I said goodnight and I’ll see you two in the morning.”

“Ok.” Mrs. Vanessa leaves out of the kitchen. I finish up the little bit of dishes that we had and then head back up to the bedroom. I noticed Trey was back in the room on the terrace walking around with Trejay putting him back to sleep. It was a beautiful night out. Trejay was so spoiled. He is such a character for seven months. He demands so much attention already. Everyone says he looks just like me with Treys energetic personality and Treyonna looks like Trey. I walked over to Trey and snuck a kiss on Trejay’s cheek as he laid his head on Trey’s shoulder.

“Where mine at?”

“Oh don’t worry daddy. I’ll take care of you once you come to bed.” I left Trey alone with his son and went and got in the shower. Meanwhile Trey went and put Trejay back in his crib. As soon as he left out the twins room his phone rang.

“Yo man why you keep calling my phone?”

“Trey you know I have no issues with you. I’m only doing as my sister asked and she really needs you to make a visit. This time she told me to tell you and these are her words not mine, that if you don’t want your sex life suddenly leaked to the public then you need to come see her.”

“Fuck she mean!”

“I don’t know.”

“She making threats now?”

“Look that’s what she told me to tell you. Believe it or not I’m tired of going back and forth trying to get you to see her my damn self. But it is my sister so I’m sure you can understand my plight.”

“Nah I don’t, cause not too long ago you was blackmailing her ass.”

“That was before I knew how deep seeded her issues were.”

“Lemme get a pen and some paper and take down her information…hold on.” Trey went to find something to write on and with. “Alright where she at?” Summer gave him all the details and then they hung up. I was coming out of the bathroom in my towel and noticed Trey looking at a piece of paper.

"Baby what's that?"

“I just got a call from Summer again. She said Autumn wants me to come see her.”

“Autumns been wanting you to come see her for a while now. What’s so new about that?”

“Now it seems like she tryna make a threat.”

“By saying what?”

"It sound like she tryna start some bullshit with that DVD of the two of us."

“I am so tired of this! Trey when is it gonna end?” Trey tries to calm me.

“Look everything gone be alright ok? I think this time I‘ma go see her doe.” All I could do was shake my head instantly irritated. “Baby I know you don’t like the idea of me going but it’s the only way to possibly squash this.”

“Well I’m going with you then.” Trey cut his eyes at me like I said something offensive.

“No. I don’t want you going no where near her.”

“I think if would be good for me to see her Trey. She tried to kill me! I have yet to express any of my feelings about that to her, Crystal and Nikki.”

“I’m not letting you go see her. You hear me?” I couldn’t believe how adamant he was about it.

“Trey you should understand why I wanna talk to Autumn. Baby she’s behind bars it’s not like she can do anything to me. Why are you so set against me going?”

“After everything you’ve been through do you have to ask? Whatchu think I’m gonna be cool with the idea of you visiting her after all the shit she done did to you? Shanell her, Crystal and Nikki are the last people I want you around.”

“But Trey…”

“I don’t trust them baby. I don’t give a fuck about her being behind nobodies damn bars neither.”

“Trey I’m not gonna run away anymore. This is something that I need to do for me. I get that you only want to protect me but baby I’ve been thinking about this and I really do want to confront them.”

“Nah…you ain’t going.”

“Here we go again with you telling me what I can and cannot do.”

“You right. On this I am, so get what ever plans you had of making a visit out ya head because I‘m telling you no. Don’t think you gone pull some slick shit either…I mean it Shanell.” I stood by Trey with no words as I looked at him infuriated. His unwavering stance really was upsetting. I was so angry with him. I walked away and put my panties and tank top on to sleep in. He knew what time it was immediately.

“Oh so now you being like that?” I took the decorative pillows off the bed and aggressively put them in the chest. Trey stood there watching me as I went back and forth. Then he walks over to me and stands in front of me.

“So you just gone go to bed like dat and stay mad at me?” My eyes let him know that’s exactly what was about to happen. I walked away from him and turned out the light. He nodded his head.

“A‘ight.” Then he walks out the room. I got under the covers and laid there. All these thoughts entered my mind. How dare he feel like it’s ok for him to go see Autumn but I can’t. I don’t care what the circumstances are surrounding the visit. Him out of all people should know how important this is to me. He should want me to go if I feel it’s necessary. Oh he makes me sick sometimes. I don’t know Tremaine. You may just have to be mad with me on this one.

We never did come to an agreement that night. At least I never agreed. Damn this! I know what he said, but I’m going to make it a point to see Autumn, Crystal and Nikki. He’s not calling all the shots anymore. Shanell is back with a vengeance. I love you baby, but I’m doing things my way this time...

*******

sec-a

Autumn could now make her phone call for the night so she decided to call Summer to check on the things she asked of her.

“Oh good you are home. Well any luck?”

“I called Trey like you asked and gave him the information on where to come see you and about the recorded encounter of the two of you being shown.”

“Is he going to come?”

“Autumn I don’t know! Gosh! He didn’t say.”

“Ok well at least he knows. You still remember what I told you to do in case he doesn’t show up right?”

“Yes! I know. Why do I have to be put in the middle of your dirty work all the time. I’m tired of it.”

“Well had you not let him come in my room in the first place I wouldn’t be needing your help right now.”

“You’ve been needing my help way before now Autumn. I have covered for you time and time again plus been your scapegoat. Daddy doesn’t trust me now because of you, starting with the accident that you were in with his car and used my name and gave my license number. It was your company that was over the house and stole their lap top and you blamed it on my friends. You are a total bitch when it comes to me. Well now it’s your turn to see how using people for your own benefit feels. I changed my mind, I will not black male Trey for you with this taping. Find somebody else to do your dirty work.”

“Ugh! Summer! You can’t be serious! Don’t flake out on me now.”

“You’re the flake! Trying to kill someone over a man. My sister is a stupid bitch!”

“Bitch! You’re the one who’s been hiding the fact that she’s a lesbian from them afraid to admit it. I swear Summer if you don’t help me I will tell.”

“I don’t care! That’s nothing compared to the damage you have caused this family. You cost daddy his practice. Anything you say to him will be nothing compared to what you have done so tell him. I don’t care!”

Autumn started crying. She couldn’t believe her sister wasn’t going to help her out in this time of need.

*******

“So Nikki are you ever going to get out of here?”

“I don’t know Charmaine. Why can’t Trey understand that everything I did was because I love him. How is love crazy?”

“Nikki love isn’t what’s crazy. It’s your behavior.”

“Charmaine you know I’m not crazy but if it’s going to keep me from going to jail then they can classify me as a nut case all day long.”

“Nikki do you feel any regret for any of the things that you’ve done?”

“Yeah. I regret that it didn’t work and I still don’t have Trey. I have to try harder.”

“Nikki Trey is happy with Shanell. They have a family together now. You think you’re really able to come in between that?”

“Whose side are you on?”

“I’m on yours but…”

“Those are my babies!” she snapped. “She took my family! My life! I want it back!”

Charmaine felt sorry for her friend. She was thinking Nikki was in this state because of the loss of Angel. She had no idea how sick Nikki really was.

“Well girlfriend I hope you get better. I really miss you and I‘ll always be here for you.” Nikki looked insulted.

“Get better? I just told you Charmaine there ain’t nothing wrong with me. My lawyer seems to think I’m suffering from this Post Traumatic Stress thing along with these doctors, but I’m fine.”

“You’re in a damn mental institution still delusional about Trey. That’s not fine! Nikki there is a real reason why you’re here. You really do need help.” Nikki smiles at Charmaine.

“Not in the least. Don’t you see? Trey could’ve shot me in that cabin but he didn’t. Why? Because part of him still loves me. I’m not delusional about that at all. I’ll take my pills and be a good girl until the day comes when we meet up again. It‘s only a matter of time before I get my family back. Believe me Charmaine I will get my family back.”

*******

Paige had a visit to go see Crystal. She couldn’t believe the mess that her and Nikki caused Shanell and Trey. She wasn’t sure how she was going to act when she saw Crystal but she knew it was imperative that she saw her. When she arrived at the women’s correctional facility she checked in and had a seat. Once it was time they were taken back. She saw Crystal sitting at a table that was over by a small window so she went over to her. She gave her a hug and then had a seat.

“I didn’t think you were going to come.”

“I wasn’t sure if I was going to come this time either but I knew I was going to be seeing you. You know Crystal Shanell and Trey are my friends. You were my best friend. How could you do this to them?”

“So is this what this visit is going to be about? You criticizing me for the choices that I made? Believe me Paige if I had to do this over again I would. I never would have listened to El. I can’t even tell you why I did.”

“But you knew he was bad news. You knew that. I never knew you would do such cruel things and for what money? Money that you don’t even have. Do you honestly think that man was going to give you anything for helping him?”

“Like I said if I could do things over I would, but I can’t. I don’t need you holding me accountable when the judge has already saw to it that I will pay for what I've done.”

“Do you know that I feel responsible for this? I feel like if I would have never introduced Shanell to you that her life would be different. I can’t even face her or Trey because of it.”

“What about my life? I’m your best friend not her.”

“You were my best friend but no one who calls themselves my friend would ever torcher another human being who’s pregnant. Put her through hell because of the man that she is involved with and teams up with her ex just for money. I don’t want any friends like that.”

“Then why are you here?”

“To let you know that I don’t feel sorry for you not one bit. You deserve to be here and what ever sentence that was given to you. You need to also be thanking God that she didn’t lose those babies or her life.”

“I don’t need you to be judging me.”

“I know. You need me to pray for you and I will. You take care of yourself while you’re in here. It wouldn’t hurt too if you did a little praying yourself.” Then Paige winks at her and sat at an empty table till it was time to leave.

*******

Tomorrow we’ll be flying to Atlanta to be there for my parents anniversary party so today we’ve been packing getting ready to make this trip. I’m really excited about going home. My auntie Sharon is going to be there with Ricky and Raven. It’s gonna feel good to see everyone and have everyone see the twins. Myself and Mrs. Vanessa was in the twins room packing their things while Trey was in their toy room keeping them occupied. We heard the buzzer sound off letting us know someone was at the gate. Evan notified me of who it was before he let them enter. It was Lynn. She lives in the neighborhood too and had been telling me that she was going to come by once we were settled. I guess she decided to make it over today. I was surprised she wasn’t at work. I told Mrs. Vanessa I would be back and went downstairs to meet Lynn at the door. She was so excited.

“Hey girlfriend!”

“Hey!”

“Shanell this is beautiful. I can’t wait to see the rest of it.”

“Thank you. How come you’re not at work today?”

“Oh I was there. I took a half day today. You know our vacation starts tomorrow so I had some things I wanted to do before Richard, me and the kids left.”

“Oh yeah that’s right you guys are going on a cruise.”

“Yes girl. This vacation couldn’t get here fast enough.”

“Well let me show you around.”

“Where’s the twins?”

“They’re up in their toy room with Trey. We’ll see them when we go up there.” I showed Lynn the house downstairs and around outside first. Then we went upstairs and lastly I showed her the toy room where Trey was. When we went in there Trey was on the floor playing with the two of them while they were in their Exersaucers (stationary activity walkers). As soon as Trejay saw me he started acting like he wanted to cry and get out. Trey started talking to him.

“Aw boy cut that out…come on man…you was just cool…here play with this.” Trey pulled down a hanging bumble bee that was in front of him on the walker. Trejay got quiet for a minute as he looked at it. Then he looked back at me whining. I went and picked him up. He was happy after that.” Lynn starts laughing at Trey.

“Trey you looked like you were having more fun than they were. Reminiscing are we?”

“Ha ha very funny Lynn.” She starts laughing. “How you doin baby?”

“I’m wonderful. I love the house.”

“Thank you. I appreciate dat. How‘s my man Richard?”

“He’s good. He should be home right now actually.”

“You should tell him to come through. I gotta poker table in the basement waiting for him to get whipped up on. He needa come see me.”

“I don’t know about all that, my man is good, but I’ll let him know. Ok let me see miss onna…you mind Trey?”

“Nah go head.” Trey gets up off the floor first then Lynn picks up Treyonna. Trey walks over to me and talks to Trejay. “You gone stop all that whining boy. Daddy gotta toughen you up.” Trejay looks at Trey smiling. Trey plays with him in my arms making him laugh. Then he gives him a kiss on the mouth. “I gotta few more things to finalize for the tour so I’m bout to get dressed and I’ll be back a little later.”

“Ok babe.” Trey then gives me a kiss and leaves out the room. Suddenly he comes back.

“Hold up.” He takes Treyonna out of Lynn’s arms and plays with her in the air real quick Then he gives her a kiss and back to Lynn. “Alright I’ll be back…can‘t leave out my baby girl.” Lynn was looking at him steady smiling.

“He’s really good with them isn’t he?”

“The best.” We put the babies down and got on the floor to play with them as we talked. She brings up Nikki.

I think the laws of self defense would allow either Trey or Bruce to use deadly force against El in saving Shanell's life. And Trey was obviously justified in saving his own life. But what is the law is going to think if they find out the secrets about Shanell's daughter Hailey. I hope Elliot stays in jail a long time because he apparently tried to kill Sharon. Lucky for him Bruce wasn't there, but that don't mean nothing. Bruce got connections. LOL.

Damn bruce. Everybody is counting on u. U gotta make this right bc I know u don't wanna lose ur family. I hope Sheila is serious when she says she's done with Elliot. And I hope she has a fast recovery

Numba1Hon's picture

Poor Bruce. I hope he can live up to his promises because everyone is counting on him. Sheila is already planning a divorce. I think Trey needs to talk to her. She needs to give Bruce a chance.

“Trust me. I know that’s asking a lot from you right now, but can you do that?”
“Like you told Trey to do? I know you and Trey talked…”
“Nelly belly everything is gonna be just fine. I spoke to Dre and I have a detective already in place to work for Francine and make sure she will never know anything about a baby.” My dad was so distraught that he didn’t realize he just told me something that I didn’t know till I questioned him.
“You spoke to Dre about this?”
“When Trey told me you had Dre looking into this for you I had to do something. I’m glad I did, because now that Elliot suspects something he can be convinced too that there’s no child. Look, don’t worry about this. I’m gonna handle it.”
“How do you expect me not too? Everything seems to be falling apart daddy.” He hugs me. I was so scared and really needed his assurance at that moment.
“I won’t let no one try to destroy this family. You let me worry about Elliot and Francine.” I look at him.
“What about Trey daddy?” My tone is now a whisper. “I don’t know what connections you may have, but he’s trusting you. Don’t let him down. Me either. I will never forgive you if he goes to jail.”
“I wouldn’t be able to forgive myself. I have a lot at stake Shanell. I’m not going to let either one of you down.” My dad kisses my cheek and hugs me once more before he leaves. As angry as I am at that man I can’t deny his love for me and my mother. It baffles me to know that a man so gentle and caring has this side to him that was devious and threatening. I honestly don’t know all the things that my father is capable of and it scares me. After my dad left I realized that I hadn’t heard from Dre in a while to even know what the latest was, yet he’d been talking to my father. I was going to give him a call at first, but then I decided to call Trey; give him an update.

Prittbrowniiz BestSellerAngel's picture

“Then you know what you need to do to get me back.” He grabs her hands.
“So we do still have a fighting chance?” My mom looks around the hospital since people were around and my dad was making a scene.
“I really don’t think this is the appropriate place to get into this Bruce,” she says through clinched teeth. She moves her hands away.
“I just need to know that you still love me and will give me a chance to make things right before doing anything crazy.” She whispers.
“It’s a little late for that. I’ve already saw a divorce attorney. I’m going back inside now.” She turns to leave.
“Honey wait.” She looks at him.
“I will not discuss this any further with you right now Bruce.”
“Well I’m not leaving until we do. This is our marriage we’re talking about here for heaven’s sake.”
“One that you decided to play God with.” My dad takes my mom by the hand again.
“Can you walk with me to the cafeteria? Please Sheila, just give me a moment of your time.”
“There you go making this moment about you. I’m here for Sharon. I didn’t come here for this. If that’s your reason for being here than you should go.” Mom says pointing.
“Tell me that you’re not gonna divorce me first…that’s all I ask.” He begs.
“I don’t think I can at this point Bruce. Now excuse me while I go be with my sister.” My dad was really hurting. I saw it all over his face when he came in the room behind her to say goodbye to me and my auntie. I didn’t know what all had been said between the two of them, but from the way he looked I knew it wasn’t good. I decided to have a talk with him before he left, because now I was concerned that Elliot knew about Hailey. I wasn’t sure if he knew or not. I followed him out as he was leaving.
“So now Elliot knows… you happy daddy?” I say as he walks ahead. He stops and turns to face me since he didn’t realize I was behind him.
“Elliot knows no more than what Francine does if she told him and it’s gonna stay that way I promise you.”He puts his hands on my shoulders.

Prittbrowniiz BestSellerAngel's picture

“Yes! But if you expect me to be happy about it right now, I can’t.” Her voice softens. “I loved him.” Even though I hated to see my auntie hurting in any way the thought of her being through with Elliot made me happy. I wanted no parts of El’s family near mine. It bothered me like crazy that Elliot now knows. I was gonna fight like never before to keep Hailey hidden from that family. Since my auntie was still upset over Elliot there was no way I could let her know about Hailey. It was just too risky. I didn’t trust her. She was still crying over him.
“Can I get you anything?” mom asks her.
“No thanks. I’m fine. I know it’s gonna take some time for me to get over him, but I know I will.” Shortly after, my dad walks in the room. My mom and I were shocked to see him here.
“Bruce! How’d you know we were here?” mom says.
“Trey told me.” He walks a little closer looking at my auntie. “Sharon, I’m sorry he did this to you.”
“Yeah, so am I, but thanks Bruce.” My dad had a big bouquet of flowers in his hand. “Are those for me?” she asks.
“Yes, I’m sorry.” He sets them down in the window seal.
“Thank you! They’re beautiful.”
“You’re welcome.” My dad observes my aunties injuries. “Are they taking good care of you here?”
“So far so good.”
“You know you’re gonna need some help at home once you get out of here. Do you have someone in mind?”
“I’m sure me and the kids will manage just fine.”
“He’s right Sharon. I could be with you until I start my next stint at sea.”
“Look, I appreciate all the support that you guys want to give me, but really, you don’t have to change your lives for me. I’ll be fine.”
“Sheila I didn’t know you were going back to work so soon.” Dad says.
“Yes Bruce, I am.”
“Can I talk to you for a minute please?” My mom and dad walk out of the room.
“Sheila I miss you.”
“Is that really why you’re here and not out of concern for my sister?”
“Of course I’m concerned about her. That still doesn’t mean that I can’t miss my wife does it?”

“I am in this hospital because my fiancée was told by his ex that he is a grandfather, and that his soon to be wife’s family, maybe even his fiancée knows where this child is. Now you’re gonna stand here and say me that you don’t know what he’s talking about?”
“Sharon please calm down,” mom tells her. “You’re hearing it from the source. There is no grandchild. Francine is delusional anyway. She’s just making things up.”
“But why would she make this up? It doesn’t make any sense.”
“Nothing that family seems to do makes any sense Sharon.”
“But a baby Sheila? Elliot wouldn’t have gotten that upset if he didn’t believe there was some truth to what she told him. He doesn’t blindly listen to Francine like that. She would have had to have some type of proof in order for him to believe her.”
“Why are you so set on believing that man? The same man that’s caused you to be here. It’s that hard for you to believe your own family over an abuser?”
“It’s funny you say that when you’ve been doing most of the talking.” She looks at me. “Shanell how come you haven’t said anything more about this when it mostly concerns you?”
“What more do you expect me to say? There isn’t another baby. The end.”
“You’re not the least bit surprised that they’re even saying this or wondering why they’re thinking that their son has a baby with you? That doesn’t bother you?”
“Auntie Sharon I’ve had it, I mean had it, with that family. I refuse to let anything that they do affect me anymore. I have no ties with them. None! And I hope after what Elliot’s done to you, you won’t either.”
“For someone who said they don’t let that family affect them you sure sound like they still do.”
“Well, if you’ve been through what I have with them then you would sound the same way. If I’m passionate in the way that I sound towards them it’s because I haven’t forgot the hell I’ve been through.”
“Sharon are you really through with Elliot?” mom asks.

Ms. Francine told him. I was frantic on the inside and didn’t know what to say. My mom jumps in.
“You have both. Shanell has twins.”
“I’m not talking about the twins.” My mom looks at me and then back at my auntie.
“What makes you ask that Sharon? Is that the reason why you’re in here? Were you and Elliot arguing over him saying he has a grandchild from Shanell?”
“He said Francine told him that they have a grandbaby that Shanell’s trying to keep from them. He thought I knew about it and wasn’t telling him. He got very angry and started accusing me of lying.” My auntie gets upset. “I never even knew what he was talking about. He kept pushing me and yelling all in my face. I just wanted to get away from him until he calmed down, but he wouldn’t let me go. Then finally I was able to get loose and I ran. I dialed the number for the police, but he was too fast and pushed me down the split level stairs before I could speak to anyone. I tried to brace myself for the fall and ended up hurting myself even more. When he realized I was hurt he called the paramedics and waited till they came, but why is he saying this?”
“Why is he putting his hands on you? Has he ever done this before Sharon?”
“No! You think I would marry a man that puts his hands on me? I’m not that desperate for love Sheila. He’s never done that to me before. That’s why this hurts so much. I never saw this side of him.”
“The apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree.” I muttered.
“Well, I hope you press charges so they can keep his ass locked up,” says mom. “You do know he’s been arrested right?”
“I know. They came as I was being put in the ambulance. But you have yet to answer my question. Why is he thinking he has grandchild that’s being kept from him… Shanell?” She looks at me wanting an answer. I dryly reply.
“I don’t know what he’s talking about.” My auntie looked at me like she could tell I was being deceptive. She expresses her distaste for my response.

Trey did not tell Shanell the full reason why he has to trust Bruce and that Bruce was going to turn himself in b4 he found out about the P.I. Shanell and Trey need to finish that talk. Also Shanell realizes that Elliot knows about the baby, but Trey, Bruce and Dre don't know yet.

I wonder if Elliot beat Aunt Sharon because he was trying to find out if she knew about the baby. Now that he is arrested I wonder if he will mention anything about the baby to the police. It doesn't seem like Shanell is aware she could be in trouble. I think Bruce and Dre are going to have to make things disappear. Next post please.

Marcus made it to Atlanta to accompany me to Virginia. When we got to the hospital my mom was so happy to see me. I had already spoken to her and she told me the extent of my aunties injuries. She told me she suffered from a herniated disc in her back and a clavicle fracture (Broken Collarbone). I felt so bad for my auntie. She was resting when I got there. My mom said her surgery was a success. She hadn’t been awake since my mom’s been there, but she has been up. The medication that she’s been on has kept her out of it and groggy when she’s up the nurse said. She just wanted us to be prepared in case she did wake up while we were there. Me and my mom just sat there talking. She still didn’t know what all had happened between her and Elliot. Ricky and Raven luckily weren’t there when the confrontation took place. Somehow or another my auntie managed to call the police. We don’t know if it was before she got hurt or afterwards, but my mom said the neighbor Mrs. Ruth saw the police and the paramedics shortly after and came over. She was the one that called my mom. I really hated seeing my auntie laying there like that. Even though she was sedated she looked so uncomfortable. Just looking at her reminded me of the times that I was in here because of El. The only thing he did that was good was give me Hailey, even though I don’t have her. As far as I’m concerned even the grave is too good a place for him. My mom and I noticed my auntie starting to wake up. When she opened up her eyes she looked at my mom first and then her eyes traveled over to me. The next thing we saw were tears running down her face. That made me and my mom both start crying too. My mom took her hand and I just stood beside her. Then she smiles at me. She clears her throat.
“Uh hmm…is it true? Do I have a great niece or nephew Shanell?”
I couldn’t believe she asked me that. How’d she know…then it hit me...Elliot.

I got my room for another night and then got on the phone to get me and Marcus a flight to Virginia for when he arrived.

Meanwhile at the airport…

“Hello.”
“Trey man, it’s Dre.”
“What’s up man?”
“It looks like Ms. Francine fired the P.I.”
“When she do this?”
“To my knowledge yesterday. The person she used is a friend of mine name Lorenzo. He told her he wasn’t coming up with anything about a grandbaby and that the documentation she had was basically bogus. She got upset with him and fired him.”
“Wow! So do you know if she’s lookin’ into getting someone new?”
“That I don’t know, but most likely she will. She doesn’t seem like the type that will give up on something so easily. I’m gonna keep an eye out though. We got lucky this time with her finding Lorenzo, but I’m not so sure about the next person she may hire. He might really do his job. Really try to do some digging.”
“I mean isn’t it a way you can prevent all that though. People make shit disappear all the time. You know what I’m sayin?”
“Aye, I definitely know what you saying. Believe me, I’m working all angles with this so my hands stay clean. I’m on your side though.”
“You don’t know how much everything you doing for us means man. If I’ve never said it, thanks.”
“You and Shanell good peoples man. I hate to see good people get a raw deal you know?”
“I feel the same way. Have you spoke to Shanell’s dad yet?”
“No, I noticed he called me though. I’ma go by there on my way home. You know what he wants?”
“Nah, he just mentioned he needed to talk to you.”
“Alright, I’ll get with him in a bit.”
“No new information on my case yet?”
“Nothing. It seems the leads that they keep finding don’t pan out to anything concrete. They trying hard man to bring you in though, but lack the evidence.”
“That’s good to hear. Well, I’m in the airport right now, so keep me posted on this situation a’ight.”
“I’ll be in touch.”

“I actually was thinking maybe we could have it at The Little Gym. I think they would have fun there. We wouldn’t have to worry about any clean up and food. We could rent it out and have a private party with close friends and family.”
“I like that idea.” I look up at him.
“Plus you’ll be able to relax before you guys have to be in San Diego…”
“I’m sold baby.”
“Okay, I guess I’ll make some calls when we get home and see if what we need is open.”
“We better start getting ready to go.” He says.
“Trey, I’m not gonna go. I think I should fly to Virginia to be there with my mom and to see what’s going on with my Auntie.”
“Baby but ya mom is gonna be there. Don’t you think you should wait to hear from her first before you decide to just up and leave to go there?”
“I can’t do that. Look, I know I need to be home with the twins, but this is really nagging at me and I think I should go.” Trey didn’t say anything for minute. I could tell he didn’t like it though.
“Okay. Lemme make a few phone calls and see if I can free up some more time to…”
“No Trey. I’m going alone. If I can’t at least be there with the twins you should be.”
“No Shanell. You have no one to be witchu. I’m not lettin’ you travel alone.”
“Well, call Marcus or Evan to come and then I’ll leave once they get here.”
“Why you don’t want me to just come witchu?”
“Babe, I feel like I’ve taken you away from home enough. It’s bad enough that you’re gone all the time with work. I’ll be fine doing this on my own.”
“How long you think you gone be there?”
“I don’t know, but I promise you I won’t stay long. I just really wanna see my auntie and go check on Ricky and Raven.”
“Okay, if that’s whatchu feel like you needa do then I guess you should go. I’ll call Marcus and get him to fly here as soon as possible.”
“Thank you babe.” I hugged Trey for being so understanding. He got his things together and I rode with him to the airport to see him off. I had an open ticket so I didn’t need to make any arrangements for my return.

“Ya aunt is in the hospital and Elliot’s been arrested.”
“What!”
“That was ya mom. It seems that ya Aunt and Elliot got into some sort of misunderstanding that escalated into him putting his hands on her.”
“Oh my God! Is she gonna be alright?”
“Ya mom don’t know yet. Ya aunts in surgery.”
“It’s that bad?”
“I’m afraid so baby.”
“Oh my God! Trey what if she doesn’t make it through surgery? I was awful toward her. What if she…” Trey holds me close.
“Shhh…don’t even think like that. I’m sure the doctors are going to do all they can for her. We don’t even know how severe her injuries are. It could be minor surgery, so let’s not worry too much right now, a’ight,” he says looking me in the eyes.
“Poor Ricky and Raven. I need to call them. No! I need to call my mom back.” I frantically try to unlock my cell phone. Trey grabs my hands.
“Shanell, ya mom is making arrangements to go to Virginia to see what’s going on. Ricky and Raven are at the neighbors, uh Mrs. Ruth’s house. She said she’ll call you once she has more information.”
“I can’t stand that bastard! I don’t know what she ever saw in him. He deserves to die too!” I started crying. Trey took me once more in his arms to comfort me. It just seemed like this family kept a dark cloud over us and never was going to see clear skies. For the rest of that day Trey and I did stay in the hotel. We basically lounged around the room. It was a nasty day out and the rain just seemed to fit the mood that I was in. Trey tried to keep my mind on other things by talking about the twins’ birthday. That surprised me, but I knew what he was doing. We were sitting on the couch together. I had my legs bent back with my head laying on Trey’s shoulder. He had asked me if I had given any thought to where I wanted to have their party.

When Trey had gotten back I was still sleeping. I felt him getting in the bed. He snuggles up against me laying his face on my cheek.
“Where’d you go?”
“I had a little talk wit ya pops.” I tried to turn my head, but Trey kept me pinned down with his face.
“Relax baby.”
“Trey what happened?”
“What happened was we came to an understanding.”
“Meaning?”
“Baby, just know that we talked and all this bullshit wit El is gonna be over real soon,” he says, getting a little more comfortable on me. “All of it.”
“Before you left you weren’t so sure, now you can trust him?”
“Do you want me to stay out of jail?”
“Of course I do.”
“Then I have to trust him.”
“Well, is he turning himself in?”
“I wish I could answer that.” Trey kisses my cheek. “Get some sleep baby, we’ll talk more in the mornin.”
The next morning when we got up I noticed it was pouring out. I didn’t want to do anything that day anyway until it was time for us to catch our flight that night. I was mentally exhausted so I didn’t even bother asking Trey anymore about him and my father’s conversation. I really just wanted to be home with my babies. In that moment I decided to call Mrs. Vanessa to check on them, than I remembered the time difference. I figured they might still have her up early, so I called anyway. She answered and told me they were still sleeping and everything was alright, so I didn’t need to worry. As soon as I hung up with her Trey got a call. His face changed drastically.
“Trey who is that,” I ask while he’s intently listening. I wondered if it was my mom because she had called when I was talking to Mrs. Vanessa, but I didn’t click over. I stood there antsy watching Trey as he held the phone silent. I was ready to jump out of my skin with anticipation of finding out who he was speaking to and what they were saying to him. He finally brings the call to an end. “Trey what is it?”
