    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.

“But Shanell just told me El’s mother recently found out, which is after he was killed, so why wouldn’t she had already known before now if El knew?”
“We don’t know if El really knew, or if he contacted his mother for her to know. It’s just speculation. My sister believes once he was killed her ex sent that paperwork to his family, so his mother probably didn’t know anything about this before then. She probably would’ve been wanting answers before now if that was the case along with her son.”
“Makes sense, but you don’t believe he was there because of that.” Trey says.
“No, I don’t believe it. He’s been on the run. My only other guess is he was there because somehow he knew you and Shanell were gonna be there. Honestly, we could come up with tons of theories, but the truth is something we may never know. I don’t know what he knew, but I was gonna be prepared if he showed up.”
“Where does this leave Hailey?
“There were some things about the adoption that didn’t make it fully legal. Her husband knew that. My brother-in-law right now, will do anything to destroy my sister. Having Hailey taken away from her would do that.”
“But she’s his daughter now too. How could he just turn his back on her like that?”
“Who said he turned out to be a good father? I think a part of him still resents my sister because they couldn’t have their own child. After some time had went by I started regretting my decision. Not because of my sister, she’s a damn good mother, but because the only father that Hailey knows turned out to be an asshole. I never saw that coming.”
“Is he Caucasian too?”
“No, he’s African American. Hailey has no idea that she’s adopted if that’s what you’re wondering. She’s a happy, healthy, beautiful seven year old who doesn’t see race when she looks at her parents. All she’s ever known is Linda as her mother and that jackass as her father.”
“So there’s still a chance now that she could lose her?”
“Not now with El being dead. He can’t contest it.”
“What about his mom?”
“She has no proof of anything except for the child was adopted. She can’t prove that El knew nothing about it and didn’t consent to it. It would be her word against Shanell’s if she tries to pursue anything.”
“What about ya sisters husband? If he knows it wasn’t legal couldn’t he cause a problem?”
“He doesn’t know all the details of the adoption. He just knew it wasn’t full proof. What made it illegal was only between me, and Shanell. He wouldn’t know the first thing to dispute to make a case to a judge. Everything on those papers look authentic.”
“Except the fact that El’s signature and everywhere he was supposed to sign wasn’t authentic, right?”
“Well, right.”
“Who forged his signature, Shanell or you?”
“Shanell did it.” Trey took his hand and started smoothing his eyebrows. He was so disturbed right now. “Son, it really was the right thing for her to do. El was poisonous in her life, caused nothing but trouble to her. If he knew she was pregnant, no telling the kind of hell he would’ve tried to put her through.”

“Son, you’re a father now and I’m sure you would do anything for your children to protect them.”
“I would pops, you right. I would do anything to protect my family. At first my main reason to come here was to give you the latest with the case, but now in light of some new information, I just wanna know how’d you know he was going to be there?” My dad thinks for a minute. He has this perplex look on his face. Then he responds.
“I didn’t know for certain, but I won’t let you take the fall for any of this. I promise you that.”
“I think you owe me the truth. You knew she had a baby already by him, so if that wasn’t enough to make you wanna kill him before, what made you shoot to kill this time?”
“Look son, there’s so much more at stake now. I had to do it. I did it for you too.”
“Nah, you didn’t do this for me. Why’d you really do it?”
“…I received a call and found out that it was a chance that Shanell’s secret about the adoption was about to come out.”
“Received a call from who?”
“My sister, Linda.”
“Where is she, and what she got to do with this?”
“She lives in Phoenix, Arizona. Apparently her and her husband are going through a bitter divorce. He knows Hailey means the world to my sister and…”
“Who’s Hailey?” My dad got quiet for a minute.
“Hailey is Shanell’s daughter. My sister adopted her.” Trey had to sit down for a minute. All this news was just too much for one day.
“Hold up, Shanell’s daughter is living in Phoenix right now being raised by her aunt?”
“Son when Shanell got pregnant all those years ago, as bad as she didn’t want a child in her life, I knew I couldn’t have a grandchild of mine being raised by some strangers; even if I didn’t like the father. She didn’t care who the child went to, she just wanted daddy to take care of it, so that’s what I did. I knew my sister had been struggling to have a family, so we still went through the proper channels and she officially adopted her. She didn’t want to just take care of her for me, because she was afraid that something might happen one day and the baby would be taken away from her. Then she wouldn’t have a legal leg to stand on.”
“So since ya sister has her, you mean to tell me she’s never seen her with her daughter before or wondered about her suddenly having a child?”
“No, my sister hardly ever comes here or is around the family much. Shanell knows nothing about her struggle to have her own child. She just knows Linda has a child, but no clue it’s her own that she’s raising.”
“That still doesn’t explain how El found out.”
“His mother seems to believe that he knew and that’s why he was there that night, but we don’t know if El knew or not. It’s many reasons why he could’ve been there.”
“He was there after Shanell. He said he was gonna kill her. Maybe he did know.”
“All I know is my sister believes her husband whose she’s divorcing got a hold of the paperwork for the adoption and sent it somehow to El’s family. The timeframe is what’s sketchy.”

“I guess we’ll never know since you took my chance away from me now will we, but if you loved me as much as you say you do, you would’ve given me a chance to handle it. React however that was gonna be and just dealt with it.”
“I had a lapse in judgment Trey, okay. I’m not perfect!”
“I never expected you to be Shanell. Just upfront with me would’ve been good enough.” He gets up. I follow him.
“Trey wait!” He stops. “Baby please tell me that we’re gonna be able to get past this. I know you’re hurting right now, but babe will you ever forgive me?”
chuckles “I don’t know what hurts the most man. The fact that you have a child with him or the fact that you felt like you didn’t trust me enough. So as for right now, I can’t give you an answer on that…I can’t.” He goes in the room and starts getting his things together. I stood in the doorway with my arms folded and watched him with tear filled eyes. I wanted to stop him, but I figured maybe he was just getting prepared for when we left tonight, so I stayed as calm as I could.
“Would you like for me to do that for you?” He said nothing. He continued to get his things together. Then I saw him take his suitcase and wheel it out like he was leaving now. “Tremaine where are you going?”
“I got something I need to take care of. I’ll meet you at the airport.”
“You’re gonna be gone that long?” He walks by and heads to the door again to leave and I follow right behind him. He stops once he’s in front of it.
“You can handle check out right?”
“Trey please…let me come with you. I promise not to be in your way or cause any trouble. I just wanna be near you babe…don’t go.”
“The only problem with that is, I can’t be near you right now. Just lay off for a bit a’ight.” That right there stung, but I thought about Dre’s and Aleen’s advice.
“Okay, fine. I’ll do as you ask and lay off. I guess I’ll see you at the airport then.” He starts to leave. “Trey!” He stops and stares at me. “I know you may not want to hear this right now, but I do love you, very much and I believe in what we have. I’m not gonna let you give up on me, because as long as I live I will never give up on you.” We held each other’s gaze for a few seconds, then he continues to walk down the hall, stopping at Buggzi’s room. He came out and then they both preceded to the elevators. Marcus came out of his room and over to me. It was weird how all that took place. Trey must’ve told him he was leaving.
“Looks like you’re stuck with me till we go.”
“Did my cousin leave?” He follows me back into my room as he answers.
“Yeah, she told me to tell you that she’ll call you.”
“Do you know where Trey just went?”
“Don’t even try it. I have no idea. I was told that Trey and Buggzi had somewhere to go and would be awhile, so it was going to be me and you together till we got to the airport.”
I walked back to the bedroom. Marcus saw all the broken glass everywhere. “What the fuck done happened in here?” he shouted.
“Marcus, you really don’t want to know.”
“On second thought, you right. That’s y’all business. Keep whatever it is to yaself.”
“It’s been enough of that already.” I whisper.
“I’ma go head and clean up this glass. I don’t want ya to get cut.” He said.
“Marcus, after you do that I need to run out somewhere. I’m gonna get dressed then I’ll be ready.”

*******

Trey decided to ride over to my mom’s house to speak with my dad. Luckily when he had gotten there, dad was home. He saw it on Trey’s face that it wasn’t a chummy visit. He invited him and Buggzi inside and told them to come in the living room. Buggzi knew they needed some privacy, so he told Trey he wasn’t going to stay. He said he’d be back and for him to just call him if he wasn’t back before they were done. After he left, Trey wanted to know if my mom was there.
“No, she’s not here and won’t be back for some time now.”
“Is everything alright?” Trey asks with a probing look on his face. My dad and Trey both stare at each other.
“You know don’t you?” Dad said.
rubs chin “I know a lot actually. The picture just became a lot clearer…where should I start?”

“Yeah I remember. She quieted down and fell right to sleep.”
“It was then that I got up the nerve to talk to you and tell you. I thought I was ready and could do it, until you started talking about how you hated being away from us. You assured me that we would be safe while you were on the road and I would never be hurt from El again. That moment just didn’t seem like the right time anymore.”
“But now it is? After how many years Shanell! Why now?”
“Trey…El’s mother knows about the baby. I really don’t know how she found out, but she wants some answers and I refuse to give them to her.”
“So you also been talking to his mom behind my back.” He says.
“No! She went to see my mother.” Trey shakes his head feeling foolish.
“I guess ya mom already knew about this too, huh?”
“She didn’t know either. I kept this a secret from her as well.” Aain I couldn’t even look him in the eyes to finish the rest of this sentence. “The only one that knew about this was my father. He helped me to place her up for adoption.” Trey now looked like he felt a bad vibe. Like he was betrayed by him too. I just waited for his response.
“So all of this is only coming up because El’s mom found out?” I knew it was going to take a lot of convincing to get him to see why I did what I did.
“Baby I know that’s a poor excuse to come clean and honestly, I don’t know how long I would’ve held this from you, especially now with El being dead. I’d like to think that I would’ve come to you, since he can no longer pose as a threat. Him knowing has been one of my worst fears, but keeping this from you and possibly losing you because of it is my biggest fear. I never, not once, was comfortable knowing I held this from you. I just felt as long as he was alive I could never say anything to put her life in jeopardy. Tremaine you’ve experienced his madness first hand just like I have. I couldn’t even imagine what our lives would’ve been like had he known he had a daughter by me. When this happened, I was young and very afraid. My father wasn’t even supposed to know, but he saw me one day when I didn’t expect him to be home and I was caught. At that point I cried and pleaded with him not to say anything to anyone. He didn’t want to, but he agreed. He even agreed not to tell my mother. He took care of things and with a little time I didn’t look back. In my mind she didn’t exist. That was the only way that I could live my life.”
“And all this time you were so hard on me when it came to certain things being kept from you, when I was only trying to protect you. But you wasn’t no better than me but the difference is ya main concern was protecting her. You wasn’t even trying to give me the same respect that you wanted and been straight up with me. Thanks a lot for making me feel like I don’t mean shit when it comes to you.”
“That’s not fair! I get it that you’re upset with me for keeping this from you, but can you at least try to understand why?”
“I understand it. Whatchu sayin’ is I’m not trustworthy to you. Is that it? Or was it just a matter of you thinking if you told me sooner I would’ve left. But that’s the problem right there doe Shanell, obviously you don’t give me enough credit. You think I wouldn’t have understood, if you told me that you were a young mother who gave up ya child because of the situation that you were in? I was raised by a young mother and that wasn’t an easy thing for my mumma to do. You don’t think I would’ve gotten that? You could’ve come to me.”
“Trey I hear you and I wish I would’ve not been afraid and known that I could’ve talked to you. I’m sorry! It wasn’t even on my mind to tell you in the beginning. Then later, once El started creating problems I knew how much you despised him, and I didn’t know what your reaction would be like.”

I put my feet on the floor and sat up. I was so overjoyed to see his face, but I didn’t get the same in return. His face was stiff and tight, looking very angry still. He walked over to the bar and made himself a drink.
“Trey when you’re done fixing that can you please come over here so I can talk to you?” He finished making his drink, but stood there drinking it. I watched him take a sip then hold the glass, take another sip than hold it as he looked at me. I wished so badly that I could read his mind even though his expression had spoken volumes. I couldn’t look at him anymore. I was so ashamed with myself. He then came over and sat in the chair that was next to the couch I was on. I took that as a great sign. It meant he was willing to talk. He even started up the conversation.
“I never thought in a million years that I’d be hearing something like this from you.”
“Babe I’m sorry I had to say this to you. Tremaine when we first started seeing each other I never imagined how much you were going to change my life. You came in and made me see all the beauty in love. My past with El at that time had been one that I wanted to forget so much. I know I didn’t make that easy for you, but you broke down that wall and got me to finally open up. Seeing you that day in my office when I did that interview on you, I wanted to put everything out on the table. I wanted to tell you about her and I was going to, but not there. I was going to talk to you later on that evening over dinner. Then El came and turned my world upside down again. I had shut down. He made me hold on to that secret even tighter. I hated him and I knew if he was coming after me this hard and he didn’t even know about her, than he’d really try to destroy me and what I was trying to build with you if he knew. It was like if I didn’t say anything it didn’t exist.”
“But it does exist. She exists, and still not once out of all these years have you ever came to me to tell me. You didn’t think I had a right to know?”
“You had every right to know. I wanted to tell you so many different times, but as soon as I found the strength to do so El was back pulling another stunt. He wouldn’t let up. He kept deterring me. Tremaine I needed you so bad and I was afraid that I would lose you if I said anything, especially telling you something like this. Then you had the accident and I became pregnant. My telling you then wasn’t even a thought with everything that we had went through. It wasn’t until the birth of the twins when things were looking up for us that it crossed my mind to finally say something. I came so close one day when you were in the nursery holding Treyonna when she was almost two months; shortly after Mrs. Vanessa had gotten here. You had just come home from doing your video shoot for Bottoms Up, and you took her straight out of Mrs. Vanessa’s arms when you came in. I remember because Treyonna was crying, which prompted me to peek out of our bedroom to see what was wrong. I saw you carry her right in to the nursery. When I peeked in there you were sitting down in the rocker singing to her. Do you remember that?”

Why you keep leaving me hanging!!!! Ahhhhh

Prittbrowniiz BestSellerAngel's picture

“Are you done?” she asks.
“Only if it made you not be mad at me anymore, if not than no and I’ll continue to sing…and dance.”
“Please don’t!” She commanded.
“Oh so you’re not mad?”
“I don’t know why I expected anything more from you anyway.” Marcus distorts his face.
“So you’re insulting me now? You are still mad.” They get off the elevator and he continues to follow her to her car.
“Why are you following me? Shouldn’t you be worrying about my cousin’s safety?” He takes his phone out and starts dialing numbers.
“Hey.”
“Marcus where are you guys?”
“I’m out here with ya cousin.” My heart starts beating fast.
“Trey’s back!”
“Nooo he’s with Buggzi. I was just calling and checking on you. You straight though? You need me to do anything for you?”
“Yes! Bring me my man!”
“You know I have no control over Trey, but I’m on my way back up there with ya cousin alright?”
“Yeah.” We hang up.
“See, ya cousin’s fine.” Aleen had grabbed her charger out of her car since Marcus continued to follow her while he was on the phone with me. They were back on the elevators again.
“Can you please not be upset with me for lying to you; well technically I didn’t lie and I don’t like what you said about not expecting anything more from me either. I know I wasn’t completely truthful with you a minute ago, but I didn’t really wanna get involved like that…” She cuts him off.
“Marcus…”
“Nah, just here me out for a minute. If you don’t listen to anything else I say, I just need you to listen to this. If you was my woman, I would never give you a reason to doubt me, but you keep playing.”
“That’s because I know what I’m dealing with…a player. You wanna win the game, start making all the right moves.” They were standing side by side at first, but Marcus moves in front of her forcing her to inch back up against the elevator wall. She looks up to him as he’s looking down at her.
“And when I do, make sure you ready for ‘em, because they will be all the right moves.” He stressed. The elevator doors opened and Marcus put his hand out for Aleen to pass. She quietly walks by him with her right hand rubbing her neck. She felt a bit of tension after that conversation. Marcus was slowly pacing himself behind her smiling as he watches her walk. They both were now in my room. I had been still crying. While she was gone, I saw the bedroom and noticed what Trey had broken. It was the champagne glasses that we had drank from last night along with the bottle, shattered everywhere. That just added to my misery. Marcus saw how upset I still was and tried to comfort me.
“I don’t know what happened with the two of you, but whatever it is I’m sure you’ll work it out. Y’all been with each other too long and have always managed to kiss and make up; no matter what it was, so stop crying. It’s gonna be alright.” I knew Marcus had no clue what the problem was this time, but I remember his talk with me when he found out I was pregnant with the twins. He thought I was going to keep that from Trey and said he would never be able to forgive a woman who knowingly kept a child from him. I know he was talking about his own, but still I don’t think he could forgive this either. This time around it won’t be that easy to just kiss and make up, I know it. I didn’t say anything and sat balled up on the couch hugging my legs.
“I think I’ma leave you two alone and go ahead to my room.” He looks at Aleen. “I’m not finished with you either. Come see me before you leave…I mean it.” Then he looks back at me. “Shanell if you need to go out or anything let me know alright?” I shook my head yes, but I knew I wasn’t leaving this hotel room until Trey was with me. He finally came back an hour later. Aleen left and went to go see Marcus as soon as Trey came in.

“Damn battery low.” She waits for it to ring. Hey! Are you with Trey?”
“So it’s like that now? No how are you, I miss you, just are you with Trey is what I get?”
“I said hey! Now is Trey with you?”
“Why?”
“Just answer the damn question.”
“Why you wanna know? You wanna be with me or something?”
Smiles “Can you just answer yes or no please?”
“Oh, I gotta please thrown in there? How sweet of you, but you ain’t slick. I know you calling for Shanell. Tell her, her man is fine.”
“What is he doing and what’s all that noise in the background? Where y’all at?”
“Now you starting to ask too many questions. I gotta go, duty calls, but I wanna see you before we leave, so don’t go nowhere, alright.”
“Then you should’ve called me to let me know you were here. I’ll let you go since duty calls.”
“I’ma call you back.”
“Goodbye Marcus.” I was anxiously waiting for her to get done.
“Well, is he with Trey?”
“They together. He said Trey is fine. I don’t believe it though. I don’t know where they are, but it sure as hell sounds like it’s somewhere with a bunch of people.”
“What have I done?” I start crying all over again. “I gotta get him to forgive me. He’s gonna leave me I know it. I’ve lost so much over the years as it is, I can’t lose him too. You should’ve seen the way he looked at me Aleen. I don’t think I’ll ever get that picture out of my head.”
“Cousin you’re just gonna have to ride this one out. You’re asking him to accept a child that you hid from him. Not only that, but one by El. That’s a tough pill to swallow regardless if you gave the child up for adoption.”
“You know cousin, I really did want to tell Trey. I know I said he wasn’t supposed to know because that was how I felt but I had my reasons Aleen. A few times believe it or not, I was gonna tell him. Then I would lose the courage, but I knew I was protecting her, so it made it not seem that bad. ”
“The point is you kept it from him and now that he knows he’s gonna need time to deal, so leave him alone about it. He’ll come to you when he’s ready to discuss it.”
“How am I supposed to do that when we live under the same roof? He can’t just not talk to me completely…can he?”
“I don’t know, but you need to pump ya brakes on this and wait till he’s ready.”
“I don’t think I can.”
“Well if you don’t than you’re gonna end up pushing him even further away, so you decide. I’ll be right back. I need to go to my car real quick.”
Aleen had just shut the door to my hotel room and noticed Marcus about to go in the room next door.
“Hey!” She said.
“Oh, hey!” He said a bit startled since he was surprised to see her.
“Are you guys just getting back?” She could see it on Marcus’s face and by his reaction that something wasn’t right. “Wait a minute. Where’s Trey?”
“You got me. Trey and Buggzi are out together.”
“So you were never with them?”
“Nah.”
“So you lied to me?” She asked maddened.
“I told you to tell Shanell that Trey was alright and he is. I never said exactly that I was with him.”
“Why’d you lie to me Marcus?”
“Look, I’m sure you been talking to ya cousin and know something’s going on between them right now, well Trey didn’t want his where abouts known. He asked me not to say anything, so I didn’t.”
“So why couldn’t you just tell me that you weren’t with him in the first place, mister duty calls.”
“It was calling. I had to use the bathroom.”
“What was all that noise that I heard then?”
“Probably the TV or the music that was playing. I went down to the sports bar real quick.”
“I wanna smack you shitless right now.”
“It’s too late for that.” Aleen rolls her eyes at him. “Aleen baby, don’t be mad with me. I’m sorry. I just didn’t want Shanell to be worrying, plus I was keeping my word to Trey.”
“But you lied to me asshole!”
“Girl you tough!” Aleen walks away from Marcus heading toward the elevator. He scurries after her singing.
“I knooo you wanna leave meee but I refuussse to let you go…if I have to beg and plead for your sympathy I don’t mind because you mean that much to me ain’t to proud to beh eh egg sweet darling, please don’t leave me girrrrlll.” She looked him up and down with her arms folded as he did his little show for her and followed her onto the elevator once the doors were open. People were getting off laughing as they saw him. That didn’t faze Marcus one bit.

“I had a baby by El my junior year of high school and had the child put up for adoption.”
“Aw shit! Now I gotta kick your ass too? You had a damn baby?”
“Yes! And I told Trey and now I think I’m gonna lose him.”
“How in the hell were you able to pull that off and what you keep it a secret for?”
“Aleen it’s a long story, but with El being the father I think it’s pretty obvious why.”
“What’d you have? A boy? Girl?”
“I had a girl.”
“Okay I need you to explain all this to me. I got time.” She had been still standing. She plops down beside me and crosses her legs. She leans forward placing her elbow on her knee, putting her thumb and pointer fingers on her cheek and chin, waiting for an explanation. I explained the whole story from finding out I was pregnant down to my dad taking care of the adoption. She listened intently before she responded. “I never thought I would feel bad for Trey, but in this case I do. That’s a damn shame.”
I raised my voice. “Aleen he wasn’t going to know! Nobody was if I could help it.” I could tell Aleen was fed up with me. “You and these damn secrets. When are you going to learn Shanell? You and Trey have been through so much because of secrets…you ain’t learned yet?”
“I know!”
“Apparently you don’t! You’re still sitting up here saying that he wasn’t supposed to know. That’s your problem. He should’ve known. He had every right to know. Before now!” she snapped.
“You sound like my mom right now.”
“Because we’re saying things that make sense. You just wanna be so damn stubborn all the time. Keeping secrets. Why you coming clean now?”
“El’s mother found out some type of way. She went to my mom and showed her something saying El was a father and everything just spiraled from there.”
“What did Auntie say to her?”
“She didn’t know what to say to her because she didn’t know about it.”
“You even kept this from Auntie Sheila?”
“I was scared! I couldn’t tell them I was pregnant after I had just been cleared of those charges from what happened with El…they would’ve been crushed.”
“So you’re telling me that Auntie Sheila just found this out too, but from El’s mother?”
“Yeah…I never meant for things to be like this.”
“This is crazy. Does your dad know yet?”
“He knew when it happened Aleen. He’s the reason I was able to put the baby up for the adoption. If he hadn’t found out about the pregnancy I don’t know what I would’ve done.”
“This just seems to get worse with every question. Damn, do I even wanna know anything else?”
“I’ve really messed up this time, I know.”
“And not only for yourself this time. Do you realize how keeping this secret has effected everyone around you that loves you? When the same people likely would have stood by you had you told the truth?”
cries “I had my reasons then Aleen. I just didn’t want El to know. I hated him. I didn’t want his baby, but I couldn’t get the abortion, so I was stuck having it.”
“I wonder how she found out and he never did, or do you think he knew?”
“I don’t know.”
“His ass managed to be a part of this family anyway. Mmm mmm mmm. How did you think you could manage hiding a child all ya life anyway? Children grow up and some want to know who their biological parents are. Did you think about that?”
“I made it clear that I didn’t want to be contacted. Aleen, what am I gonna do about Trey? I don’t wanna lose him.”
“I think you should’ve told him way before now cousin. I know you guys have had trust issues in the past, but Shanell you really thought you couldn’t trust him with this? Or were you more afraid that he would’ve left you sooner, because cousin I hate to say it, but it’s nothing you can do now.”
“Honestly, a part of me was afraid that I would lose him, so I would chicken out, but I really didn’t say anything too, because I mostly put it out of my mind like it never happened. I didn’t think this day would come.”
“So now you don’t know where Trey is, right?”
“Noowa! Ugh! I’m so stupid! Aleen that man is my world. I can’t lose him to this!”
“Is Marcus here in Atlanta?”
“Yeah.” She takes out her phone and calls him.

“I’m not letting you go!”
“Go back in the room Shanell.”
“Babe listen to meee.” I said, with my fingers locked together at my chest begging. “Not telling you this was a big mistake. You’re right, you’re right babe. I should’ve known that I could trust you of all people with this and let you know everything between me and El early on. Not doing that is one of the biggest mistakes I’ve made in my life. I am sooo sorry Tremaine that I didn’t allow myself to do that. I can’t say it enough.” My hands gather up his shirt in the center, holding on to him. “Baby I love you sooo much, you gotta…” The elevator doors opened stopping me mid speech. I was somewhat blocking others from getting off, but I didn’t care.
“If I was you, I’d stay right here.” He says. He pulls my hands away and walks around me. I turn around. He touches the button inside. The elevator doors close in my face. I didn’t follow him this time like he requested. I just stood there. I couldn’t move from that spot. I wanted those doors to fly back open and him want to finish hearing me out, but it didn’t happen. Someone walks up and sees me standing there without any buttons pushed.
“Miss, were you going up or down?” Eyes in a daze I shake my head no and walked back to the room. I sat on the couch and cried. I wanted to know so badly where Trey was going. I didn’t see no Buggzi with him or Marcus…no one. I didn’t want him to be alone. I hoped as I sat there that he wasn’t alone. I wondered why this had to happen. Who would want to expose my secret and why? I sat there mad at myself for not telling Trey sooner. I had all kinds of thoughts going through my mind, but the main one was God please bring him back. That was the first step…bring him back to me. Our flight wasn’t scheduled to leave until tonight, so that gave him plenty of time to stay away from me until it was time to leave. I just hoped I wouldn’t be flying back home without him. I knew he had to get his things, since he didn’t take them with him, but then I thought he might send someone else to get them instead. My mind was racing. The thought of losing him really tugs at my heart. I honestly don’t know if he will be able to get past this, and it kills me to think like this. My phone starts ringing. I notice its Aleen. My mom must’ve told her that I was here in town maybe, or she could’ve just been calling. I really needed someone to talk too, so I answered it. She could tell I was crying and asked me what was wrong. I told her where I was staying and asked if she could come over. She did.
“What the hell is wrong with you? Did something happen with the case? Don’t tell me they sending Trey’s ass to jail, or did he get locked up already?” I sat on the couch with my legs bent, face all red and nose justa running. Aleen walks in the bathroom to get me some toilet paper to wipe my face. She notices the bedroom. “What the hell done happened in here? Were you guys fighting? If his ass…” She rants as she came over and gives me the toilet paper.
“No, Trey didn’t hit me and he’s not in jail.”
“Cousin what’s going on?”
shakes head “Trey’s gonna leave me.”
“Why?”
“I kept a secret from him, one that I’ve hidden from everyone. I told him what it was and I don’t think he’ll be able to accept it and forgive me.”
“Are you going to tell me what it is?” I didn’t speak for a few seconds. “Shanell tell me, maybe it’s not that bad. You’ve confided in me before and I haven’t let you down, so tell me what this is all about.” I wiped my eyes.
“It’s so bad, I’m ashamed to even repeat it.”
“It can’t be that bad. Did you cheat or something?”
sighs “No. Cousin before I tell you this you have to promise me number one, that you will not say anything to anyone.”
“Okay, I promise.”
“I also need you to allow me to finish telling you what I’m going to say before you interrupt.”
“Alright! What is it?” I take a deep breath.
“I had a baby by El my junior year of high school and had the child put up for adoption.”
“Aw shit! Now I gotta kick your ass too? You had a damn baby?”
“Yes! And I told Trey and now I think I’m gonna lose him.”
“How in the hell were you able to pull that off and what you keep it a secret for?”
“Aleen it’s a long story, but with El being the father I think it’s pretty obvious why.”
“What’d you have? A boy? Girl?”
“I had a girl.”

“I know!”
“Apparently you don’t! You’re still sitting up here saying that he wasn’t supposed to know. That’s your problem. He should’ve known. He had every right to know. Before now!” she snapped.
“You sound like my mom right now.”

“El’s mother found out some type of way. She went to my mom and showed her something saying El was a father and everything just spiraled from there.”

“She didn’t know what to say to her because she didn’t know about it.”
“You even kept this from Auntie Sheila?”
“I was scared! I couldn’t tell them I was pregnant after I had just been cleared of those charges from what happened with El…they would’ve been crushed.”
“So you’re telling me that Auntie Sheila just found this out too, but from El’s mother?”
“Yeah…I never meant for things to be like this.”
“This is crazy. Does your dad know yet?”
“He knew when it happened Aleen. He’s the reason I was able to put the baby up for the adoption. If he hadn’t found out about the pregnancy I don’t know what I would’ve done.”
“This just seems to get worse with every question. Damn, do I even wanna know anything else?”
“I’ve really messed up this time, I know.”
“And not only for yourself this time. Do you realize how keeping this secret has effected everyone around you that loves you? When the same people likely would have stood by you had you told the truth?”
cries “I had my reasons then Aleen. I just didn’t want El to know. I hated him. I didn’t want his baby but I couldn’t get the abortion, so I was stuck having it.”
“I wonder how she found out and he never did, or do you think he knew?”
“I don’t know.”
“His ass managed to be a part of this family anyway. Mmm mmm mmm. How did you think you could manage hiding a child all ya life anyway? Children grow up and some want to know who their biological parents are. Did you think about that?”
“I made it clear that I didn’t want to be contacted. Aleen, what am I gonna do about Trey? I don’t wanna lose him.”
“I think you should’ve told him way before now cousin. I know you guys have had trust issues in the past, but Shanell you really thought you couldn’t trust him with this? Or were you more afraid that he would’ve left you sooner, because cousin I hate to say it, but it’s nothing you can do now.”
“Honestly, a part of me was afraid that I would lose him, so I would chicken out, but I really didn’t say anything too, because I mostly put it out of my mind like it never happened. I didn’t think this day would come.”
“So now you don’t know where Trey is, right?”
“Noowa! Ugh! I’m so stupid! Aleen that man is my world. I can’t lose him to this!”
“Is Marcus here in Atlanta?”
“Yeah.” She takes out her phone and calls him.

Wowww Trey just admitted he shot El.... I can understand why Trey is hurt but it was Shanell's past I actually understand why she kept that secret El was crazy as hell he did not need to damage his own child but Trey needs to calm down and remember they still have a case to beat and 2 little babies to raise.. Damn Shanall keeps the drama going smh Next Post ASAP... S/N Trey better hope that room wasnt bugged cause it would not be a good look for him even though El did deserve it

Wow. If Trey loves Shanell like he says he does, then he should try to understand and forgive her. I still believe he is hiding something else himself. I don't think shooting anyone was the secret that he was worried about after he visited Autumn. Can't wait for the next post.

Idk how she expected him 2 react but damn shanell. I'm glad u finally told him. U should find ur baby and get custody instead of tryin 2 fake like she's dead bc obviously sumbody knows about her and told el's mother. I wonder what's gunna happen once her mother confronts her father about keeping the baby a secret. I hope dre doesn't help her. And who tf was the other person that shot el. And just bc trey said he shot him it doesn't mean his bullet was the 1 that killed el

Hope that room was not bugged cause Trey just confessed he shot El and I have no sympathy for my cousin right now. If Trey just made her feel like shit wonder what the hell I'm gonna say. Trey no getting drunk and going in foreign objects again because you are hurt or I'm kick your ass next.
