My Comments

Trey comes in only taking a few steps, standing not too far from the door.
“I knew I’d be seeing you sooner or later. You want to have a seat?” Trey walks over to sit on the couch. “So, my soon to be son in law decided to be honest and do the right thing.”
“Look man, I love ya daughter. I had to tell her. She deserved to know the truth even if it meant her finding out the type of father she really has.” Bruce pours himself a drink. “Can I offer you anything son?”
“No thanks!” Trey says brisk. Bruce takes his glass of cognac and takes a seat.
“I’m not a bad man son. I’m a man who believes in family first. I’ll do whatever it takes to keep order and peace in it.”
“Yeah, I’m well aware of that,” Trey says snidely. Bruce takes a sip of his drink first and then sets it down on the table.
“I remember when Sheila and I first found out we were going to be parents. It was one of the happiest days of my life. I knew I had a responsibility to the both of them…to give them the best life…to make sure all their needs were met…to love unconditionally, because I know how life can beat you down…and more importantly, be the man in their lives that would always protect them no matter what. I pride myself on that son. Without my family, I’m nothing. I don’t take what I have for granted, but it seems now neither one of them wants anything to do with me until this matter with you is cleared up.”
“Can you blame ‘em?”
“I never had any intentions of blackmailing you son. Trey I know you’re a good man. I knew if I told you about Hailey and Malcolm you’d tell Shanell.”
“You wanted me to tell her,” he doubtfully repeats.
“If this information was going to come out, she needed it to come from you.”
“Hol’up! You tryna say to me now, that you knew I was going to tell her,” he says again.
“My hope was that you’d tell her and you did.”
Why should I believe you? I mean you really had me thinking you didn’t want her to know from anybody and you were working on a way to keep her from finding out.

“That I agree with and truthfully I don’t think I can take hearing another thing. I never knew the things that my father has been capable of. Don’t get me wrong, I get him wanting to protect you and I from El. I get that. What I don’t get is him letting you take all the blame. Why not just admit to being a part of it? He was defending us. Oh, not to mention him giving Hailey to my auntie regardless of my wishes. Both instances sounds like he was thinking about what he wanted, not what was best for you or myself.”
“Maybe to him it was what’s best.”
“Don’t defend him Trey.”
“I’m not.”
“You know my mother knows what happened. She wants him to turn himself in.” His response is doubtful.
“Yeah, I’d like to see that happen now.”
“Why you say that?”
“Nothing baby.”
“I think he will. My mom is talking about it costing him their marriage. I’ve never seen this look in her eyes before. It’s like her light has been taken away. I’m really worried.”
“Ya moms just found out some truths about her husband baby. She dealin’ wit a lot right now just like we are. I can’t speak for her, but when you find out some things you didn’t know about the one you love, it’s not an easy thing to accept sometimes.” I look at him feeling so lucky. I held him in my arms again blessed to be given another chance. His warmth had me feeling so comfortable, since I was drained.
“I just want this to be over. I want you to be able to go to work without this on your back. I want our family to get back on track and I want Hailey to be safe.”
“I know,” he says kissing my forehead.
“Baby I’m gonna go lay down. There’s a lot more that needs to be said, but I just can’t right now. My head hurts.” I gave Trey a kiss, found some pain pills first, then I went to get some rest. While I was sleeping Trey went to pay my father a visit. His presence caught my dad by surprise when he opened up the door. They stare in each other’s eyes not once blinking till finally my father invites him in.

“He had a plan to cover up his involvement. I thought it was the right thing to do at the time baby. Ya pops never gave me any reason before now to doubt what he stood for. I thought I could trust him when he said he’d make sure I wouldn’t go to jail for him.”
“But he was involved Trey. How could you out of all people believe that my father could conceal his involvement from the cops?”
“Ya father is well connected Shanell. Never knew how much pull he had. I believe if he doesn’t want to be involved in this, he has his ways of making that happen.”
“How do you know this? What has he said to you?”
“Look, what he said to me ain’t important. When it comes down to it I’ma father too. When I think about Treyonna and Trejay, I would do anything in the world to protect them. ANYTHING! I can respect ya father for that. All the choices he made…they may not have been the right ones in your eyes, but as a father, baby I can understand them. I get loving someone so much that you’d make sacrifices that you’d never thought you’d make and do things that you never thought you’d do. Maybe it wasn’t the smartest choice that I’ve made, but part of me was thinking about you. Baby I know how much you love, respect and cherish ya father. I didn’t know what finding out about his involvement would do to you. You were shaken up pretty bad. If you had to watch ya dad get arrested, it would’ve crushed you.”
“And seeing them arrest you made it any better? God Trey, you know how scared I was when they didn’t release you that night? No, I wouldn’t have wanted to see him get arrested, but I damn sure don’t want you going to jail too.”
“Baby I know dat. I know you love me, but I had a lotta shit running through my mind that night. I know how much I mean to you. I also know ya pops means the world to you too, and you him.”
“Yeah well, I’m not so sure about that anymore.”
“I know it’s a lot about ya dad that you didn’t know and slowly finding out…”

sec-gg
I pull away and look up at Trey.
“He lied to me about Hailey and still feels like it was the right thing to do. How could he be so heartless?” I don’t think Trey knew what to say to me as I looked him in the eyes. He just stared at me with nothing to say back. “You knew my father shot El didn’t you? But you didn’t tell me.” Trey looks away from me and heavily sighs. I could see it on his face that he thought I was about to be upset with him. Before he could fix his lips to explain anything I put my fingers over them. “Shhh, I know why you didn’t say anything. I’m sorry that my father put you in a position where you too felt like you had to do this.”
“He didn’t baby, you should know me better than that. I make my own decisions. I did it for my own reasons. One, because ya father saved my life. Mine and yours.”
“I’m well aware of that now from my father, but how about you telling me what happened since you were there first hand.”
“Shanell, what you didn’t know, since you blacked out was baby El tried to shoot both of us after I shot him. He was still tryna come after us, but I didn’t know because I had my back turned wit my attention on you. If ya father hadn’t reacted when he did El would’ve shot me first than you. We didn’t tell you this because then you would’ve known that ya father had a part in killing him baby. And as I said before he didn’t want anyone to know his involvement, especially you.”
“What about you Trey? You also felt like he did?”
“Baby, as much as I hated lying to you, I was willing to conceal this only because I felt like I owed him. I couldn’t let ya father get involved after that if that was his wish. Shit! I was already on the record for having a history with that mu’fucker, so why involve ya dad.”
“Maybe because he was involved Trey. This doesn’t seem like you at all. You have wayyy more at stake than my father. Why would you be a part of this?”
“How could you even ask me something like that?”
“Because, I don’t understand.”

“But mom that’s just it, I don’t want to be a real part of her life. I don’t want to change who Hailey knows to be her mother. Her only mother. I don’t regret my choice in giving her up. I just don’t want it to come out.” My mom tucks a strand of hair behind my ear.
“I’m really proud of you. You’re so brave and strong even if you don’t believe it. I’ve seen your strength each and every time something horrible has come your way. You always manage to get back up and keep fighting. I’ve learned from you, that it’s not the fight that you’re up against that matters, it’s the fight in you that makes the difference. It takes a lot of courage Shanell, not to let the bad things in life keep you down. It’s finding a way to get back up. Thank you for teaching me that.” Her high praise of me was very touching and even though I wasn’t feeling very strong right now, my mother’s words are exactly what I needed to hear. But that’s what I love about her. She always knows what to say to me. She has me all choked up.
“Thanks mom.” We hug each other and then we say goodbye. I told her Trey and I would only be staying until tomorrow night, so if I didn’t see her before we left I’d call her. When I got up to our suite, Trey was on his lap top at the desk. He stops typing when he sees me.
“How’d you get here? I thought you was gonna call me?” He stood up as I walked toward him. He saw how red and puffy my eyes were. He embraces me. “You wanna talk about it?” I lay my head on his shoulder.
“We will, but right now can you just hold me,” I sorrowfully ask. He squeezes me a little tighter, his hold secure and sheltered. My mind was racing. Even though I felt like I was spinning in circles like a tornado on the inside, being in his arms right now was my calm
eye. I don’t know how long we stayed in that spot, all I knew was it gave me a sense of peace while I stood there with him.
