Story - Passion Pain & Pleasure Trey & Shanell Saga continues...

  • 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.

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.

Talk to me Tremaine! Just say it! Whatever you’re feeling! Whatever it may be! Just say it, but please don’t leave out of here without talking to meee.” He whips his arms outward making me release my grasp with that one stroke.
“If I said what I was really feeling right now you wouldn’t fuck’n like it!”
I yell. “I DON’T CARE! YELL AT ME, TELL ME HOW WRONG I AM OR HOW HURT YOU FEEL, JUST TALK TO MEEE!” He grabs me up by the arms.
“LIKE YOU DID? YOU BEEN FUCK’N LYING TO ME! ALL THIS SHIT ABOUT TRUST; BEING TRUTHFUL TO ONE ANOTHER, AND YOU BEEN HIDING THIS SHIT??? WHAT THE FUCK I’M SPOSE TO SAY RIGHT NOW SHANELL! HUH! YOU GOTTA BABY BY THAT NIGGA AND KEPT IT FROM ME! YOU KEPT DAT SHIT FROM ME!!! THE ONE YOU SAY YOU LOVE AND WANNA SPEND THE REST OF YA LIFE WITH!!! BULLSHIT!!! BUT ME…I FUCK’N LOVE YO ASS; SHOOT’N NIGGAS N’SHIT FOR YOU TRYNA DO RIGHT BY YOU AND YOU COULDN’T EVEN TRUST ME? WHAT THE FUCK I’M HERE FOR THAN…HUH?” He lets me go. I could barely speak from crying but he needed to hear me.
“BECAUSE I LOVE YOU AND I NEED YOU!” I belted out. “Trey not telling you has been killing meee, but baby please understand that this didn’t have anything to do with yewww…please know that Traaayyy.” His demeanor was calm again.
“There you go back on that shit again. You really think that? If so, than this ain’t our only problem. Everything I do has to do with you, but you don’t fuck’n get that I see.” He said, as he constantly drills his finger in my forehead. “Let me make things easy for you then. Since you feel like this didn’t have anything to do with me…it won’t.” He heads to the door again. I follow and pull his arm.
“NO! TREMAINE DON’T LEEEAAVE MEEE!!!” He shoves me off of him knocking me down and quickly opens the door and leaves. I get up and run after him. I couldn’t let him go. He sees me coming toward him. He’s standing waiting for the Elevator. I catch up to him. He shakes his head at me. I stand in front of him and the elevator doors panicked about him leaving me.

“Tremaine! You gotta know that I never meant to hurt you behind this. Baby please believe me. I wanted to tell you so bad. There were so many times that I had come close, but I couldn’t bring myself to do it for her sake…baby I’m sorreee…bangs on the door. Tremaine! Open the door and talk to meee…I was afraid okay. I didn’t want El to know about her. I didn’t tell anyone because I thought…I thought if by some chance it got out he would’ve tried to use her to get to me…or even worse, try to take her and use her as a pawn. I couldn’t let that happen…BANG! BANG! BANG! Baby pleeze…open the door and talk to me…” I cried. I heard him fussing under his breath but couldn’t make out what he was saying. “Baby I’m so sawry…God knows how sorry I am, I…I just did what I thought was right.” The next thing I hear is something clash and break. I dropped to the floor and continued to cry by the door. I knew he was furious. I just wanted to go in there and hold him, but he didn’t want me to touch him. It hurt so bad for me to feel that from him. I can only imagine the hurt he’s experiencing right now from me. I refused to move though. I stayed right there begging and pleading for him to come out. He finally opened the door and saw me sitting there. He was dressed, no longer in lounge clothes. He steps right over me. I quickly get up. He kept walking heading for the door. I was so desperate for him not to leave I tackled him from behind, but he didn’t fall. He walks me like a rag doll. I held on so tight pleading for him not to leave and to talk to me, but he still said nothing. I wasn’t letting go. He was going to have to hurt me.
“I’m not letting you walk out on me Tremaine!” He turns his head back and looks at me from the corners of his eyes. He speaks to me again in a calm tone.
“I’m telling you now Shanell, let me go.”
“No! I won’t! I know you’re disappointed and way passed angry with me right now, you may even feel that you hate me, but I’m not letting you leave like this.

“Trey there’s something that I need to tell you, but I’m scared.” He sits back in his seat.
“Baby just tell me.”
“…Before we met, when I was a junior in high school…” pauses…tears fall…
“Baby what is it? And why you so afraid to tell me about something that happened before we met. It’s gone be alright. Stop crying.” I wiped my eyes. He could tell it was something that I was struggling with. “Why you telling me this now anyway?”
“Baby please let me get this out…”
“Okay. Talk to me.”
“…Trey, I had a baby by El…” he stands and interrupts me.
“WHAT! You Fuck’n what?”
I blurted out the rest so he would hear me. “That I had put up for adoption!” I saw how quickly his look of concern left his face. His eyes were now bullets that were being shot at me. I felt them hitting me all over. I was dying a slow death. My fear of hurting him was now a reality. I saw it all over his face. His jaws were clinched and his temples pulsated. I got up and went beside him. I didn’t know how I should touch him, but I knew I wanted to. I struggled as I hesitated several times and dipped my hands in different spots, trying to show some type of comfort.
“Tremaine, baby say something to me…pleeze.” Even though I was in his face he wouldn’t even look at me. He just stood there motionless. The only thing that still protruded was his temple muscles as he continued to clinch his mouth shut. “Trey, I wanted to tell you so many times I…” He suddenly grabs me by the arms tightly. He had this calmness about him still, even though I could tell he was really shooting bullets at me on the inside.
“Get away from me.” He sternly says. He lets me go. I reluctantly move. He walks away from me. He went in the room and slammed the door. I knew I should’ve just left him alone, but I couldn’t. I needed him to say something to me. I pleaded with him through the door as I wept standing in front of it. My voice shrieked as I poured out my heart to him.

“Yeah as a matter of fact I did, but I’ll get up wit’em later. I don’t wanna bombard him as soon as he gets here.”
“Okay well, whenever you need to talk to him you know how to get in touch with him.” Mom said. Trey looks at me.
“You ready? I got the guys outside waiting.”
“Oh! Yeah…right.” I hugged my mom. She whispers in my ear. “Tell Trey.” I whispered back to go easy on daddy. She said goodbye to Trey and we left. I was dreading this conversation with him, but I knew it had to be done. Once we got back to the hotel room Trey pulls me close.
“I missed you today.”
“I missed you too.”
“You never told me where you went at.”
“Oh, I was talking to Dre.” Trey squints his eyes with wonder.
“What he hafta say?”
“He said Elliot is pressing for a search warrant of our premises because he believes we have the gun hidden somewhere.”
“That dude man, he don’t know shit and tryna cause more problems. Yeah, we had the gun taken all the way to fuck’n LA, and hidden somewhere on our property, so the cops wouldn’t find it. Fuck otta here! He need to go back where he came from talk’n dumb shit.”
“Babe I know.”
“Dre ain’t have nothing else to say regarding the case?”
“Not really.”
“I’m sick of all diss shit. I on’t even wanna talk about none of it no more. All I wanna do right now is make love to my baby.” Trey pulls me and eases me into the bedroom. He starts kissing all over my neck while undressing me. I couldn’t say anything to him at a time like this. I just couldn’t. I stayed in the moment and catered to my man. We’ll definitely have to talk come morning.

*******

I promised myself today that no matter what, I was going to tell Trey. We got up and had breakfast brought up to our room. As we were sitting there eating Trey could tell that something was on my mind.
“You’ve been quiet all morning. What’s wrong?” He grabs for my hand and lovingly smiles at me. “You mad cause you ain’t get none this morning too?” I couldn’t even smile at that. I really wished it was that simple.

“I’ma be honest with you, I would be hurt at first, but I think with time I would be able to forgive you, especially if I really love you. I mean it’s not like you intentionally lied to hurt him. You did what you thought you had to do for her.”
“I just keep picturing me telling him and he walks out on me. I know this is going to hurt him and I’m afraid that he’ll never forgive me.”
“Well, as a man he’s definitely gonna feel some type of way, but let him, and give him some time. That’s all you can do.” I sat there in a daze. I wasn’t ready for this, but I knew Dre and my mom was right. I told Dre thank you and I left to go back to my moms. When I got there Trey still hadn’t gotten there yet. I was surprised. I decided to call him to make sure everything was okay. My timing was impeccable. Trey told me to look out the window. They were just pulling up. My emotions were all over the place. As I watched him get out of the car to come in, while he spoke words in my ear as we were still on the phone, I started tearing up. I wanted to bottle this moment because I was really afraid that things between us were never going to be the same. I quickly dried my eyes and cleared my throat once we hung up before he saw me close up. Trey came in.
“You ready?”
“Yup! Let me just go say goodbye to my mom.”
“Where she at, so I can speak to her?”
“She’s upstairs, I think.”
“Baby why you on’t know where ya mumma at? You been here right?” Then my mom comes down the steps.
“Oh you’re back!” Trey was looking at her thinking she was talking to him until he
noticed she said that looking directly at me. Then he looks at me and curiously asks,
“Where’d you go?”
“Hello Trey!” He stops talking to me and gives my mom a hug and kiss. “Shanell I just spoke to your father, he’s on his way home now.” I wasn’t sure why she said that to me. “Trey Shanell said you wanted to speak to Bruce.” I felt relieved. Now it clicked. My mind had me thinking she said that to me because of my secret.

Shanell is in big trouble. She does not have any choice but to tell Trey. She needs everyone in her corner right now and maybe Trey will see that, but the trust will be broken. Maybe they can overcome all of this. This is no fairy tale. Thanks for this interesting story.

Shanell needs to get herself together and come clean with Trey. Yes Dre don't help her unless she tell Trey the truth! Now is not the time to be keeping secrets form Trey, yes he will be mad but once he clam down he will understand why she did what she did.

Oh my Gosh Shanell!!! Don't do it!!! It's a trap!!! Just like Dre said someone else knows about this child and where it's at!!!

Prittbrowniiz BestSellerAngel's picture

“What other proof would she have that it’s not true? She has to believe it.”
“How did she find out he has a child in the first place?”
“I don’t know, but apparently someone presented her with a document stating El was a father so that, that detail could be known and added to his eulogy.”
“So who ever that is Shanell could possibly have knowledge that your baby is alive. A death certificate may not work. They may even know where to find her. They’re the person that you need to be concerned with. Not his mom.”
“Why do you have to be such a cop? All I know is that I don’t want her life to be turned upside down by this and I need your help to make that happen. Please Dre, I’m begging you.”
“I think you need to talk about this with Trey first. I’m not sure I should get involved.”
“No! Please Dre you have to help me.”
“Can I at least have some time to think about it?”
“There is no time. I need an answer now. The longer we wait only brings his mother closer to possibly finding out the truth.”
“I don’t know Shanell I…” I take his hand and cry.
“Dre Please! I have to protect her identity. His mother will only complicate her life and try to make mine a living hell behind this. You said it yourself I could be arrested for what I did and if that happens she may try to go after her. I won’t let her have my child! She can’t know!”
“Alright! I’ll help you, but on one condition.”
“Anything!”
“I won’t do this without you telling Trey.”
“I’ll tell him.” He tilts his head down staring at me as if I was lying.
“I mean it Shanell, because any information I find out I’m telling the both of you.”
“I got it! I’ll tell Trey! You might just be giving me the information anyway if things don’t go well.” Dre rubs my shoulders.
“Aw don’t say that. He may take it hard at first, but hopefully once it sinks in and he realizes why you felt like you had to keep this secret he might come around.”
“Would you, if you were in this situation?”

Prittbrowniiz BestSellerAngel's picture

“El didn’t know about the baby.”
“Okay Shanell, as on officer you could be arrested, but as a friend I can’t be involved with this.”
“Dre, I need your help! You’re my only hope! If his mom thinks the baby is dead then she can’t interfere in her life.”
“Does Trey know about this?”
“I said I needed to use discretion. No! He doesn’t know about the baby. He also doesn’t know that I’m asking this of you too, obviously.” Dre was quietly looking in the direction of the side view mirror. I knew I dropped a lot on him, but I was desperate to protect my child.
“I knew it! I always wondered if you were pregnant by him. I noticed it.”
“How? The way I dressed didn’t change that much in school. I had it hidden pretty well.”
“It was your face. You started looking different to me.” He looks at me. “Remember I would always ask you why your face was starting to get fat. You told me it wasn’t. Than later you admitted to having an allergic reaction to some medication and it was gonna take time for your face to get back to normal. I knew something was different and I didn’t fully buy your story. Then when I never noticed you with a baby I figured maybe something like that really did happen and I was wrong in what I thought.”
“I couldn’t tell anybody Dre. I couldn’t risk word getting around to El. I know he was locked up, but I still was so afraid of what would happen if he knew.” I started tearing up again. “Dre I can’t afford for this to get out. Trey will leave me. I can’t lose him.”
“Shanell how do you know he’ll leave? You were young when this happened. You did what you thought had to be done.”
“But I’ve kept this from him. He might not forgive me. Dre please…please help me with this. I can’t lose him.” Dre pulled me into him and allowed me to cry on his shoulder.
“Shanell how do you know that would even work? You’ve already lied about the baby’s birth. What if she doesn’t believe it?” I lift from him to respond.

“Dre there’s something else that I need to discuss with you, but I need to do it in person.”
“Oh, you’ll be coming to Atlanta soon?”
“Actually, I’m already here.”
“Oh! How soon did you need to talk?”
“As soon as possible.”
“Well, I’m at my mom’s house right now if you want to come by.”
“I was kind of hoping we could talk in private. I really have to use discretion on this.”
“So what do you suggest then?”
“How bout I drive over and we can talk in the car.”
“Sounds good. I’ll see you soon than.”
“Okay Dre. I’ll be right over.” My mom was in the kitchen when I went back downstairs. “Mom can I use the car real quick? I promise not to be long.”
“Isn’t Trey on his way?”
“Yeah, but I should be back before he comes if not, he can wait. He wanted to speak to dad anyway, so maybe he'll be home by then.”
“Okay sweetheart.” I grabbed the keys and drove over to see Dre. He was already standing out on the step. He gets in the car.
“So what’s going on? I see Trey isn’t with you. Is this personal?”
“Actually it is. What I’m about to ask of you is something that I need to stay only between you and I. I can’t even believe I’m going to say this to you, but Dre you’re my only hope.”
“Shanell, what is it?”
“I need for you to get a death certificate for a baby for me.”
“Whoa…wait now Shanell. I’m gonna need you to give me more information on why I should do something like this.”
“Listen Dre, the gist of it all is I had a baby by El when we were in high school.”
“Stop! Hold up. You what?”
“Dre his mom found out some type of way that I had this baby and she wants some answers…possibly be in the child’s life now that El is dead. I won’t let that family get a hold of her.” Dre was still stuck on me being pregnant.
“You gotta give me a minute to digest this one. You had a baby by him?”
“It’s not like I wanted to, but I couldn’t go through with an abortion, so the baby was put up for adoption.”
“But how? You were under age so you couldn’t have done it alone and without the fathers consent.”

sec-s
Trey called me to say that they were on their way to come and get me. As soon as we hung up I got a phone call from Dre.
“Hey! Can you talk?” he asked.
“Yeah…um give me one moment to go in a different room.” I walk up to my bedroom. “Okay. What’s up?”
“I’m sorry I wasn’t able to get to back in touch with you sooner.”
“No. It’s fine. I knew you would call me when you could.”
“Well, it seems Elliot is pressing the detectives on the case for an arrest. He believes that Trey killed his son and knows where the weapons are hidden. He wants us to request a search warrant for you guys premises.”
“Premises where? LA?”
“I know, sounds crazy right?”
“That man is ridiculous!”
“Well that’s not gonna happen at this point anyway, but he is adamant about us arresting Trey. They are looking to search your uncle’s premises again though.”
“Why?”
“I can’t really get into that, but they are.”
“Is this because of Elliot’s doing? Does he know that there’s more than one suspect now?”
“He really has an ax to grind with you guys.”
“Well they can’t just arrest Trey when there’s no proof that he did it? That man needs to go sit somewhere. He didn’t even know his son, but wants to come wreak havoc because now he’s dead. Where was all this concern when he was alive?”
“You know how that goes. I mean it’s still his son.”
“One that he really didn’t know.”
“Aye, I feel you. He came there looking for trouble and unfortunately his own life was taken. He knew what he was doing though. He planned on hurting somebody coming there with a gun.”
“Right! Which was me. Look Dre, I really appreciate you helping me and Trey like this. You don’t know how much easier it is to deal with things when we know what’s coming ahead of time.”
“You know I never did like El. I wish they could just close the case already, because as far as I’m concerned whoever killed him was justified. But that’s not the way the law works, cause if I had it my way, a lot of these jokers would never see the light of day.”

Well I hope Trey does not act like an asshole when she explains what happened and why she hid it. He has a secret too it seems. I wonder what it is and how will Shanell accept it if he tells it.

SpiritualAngel's picture

Can't wait til the next post!

SpiritualAngel's picture

Oh my I hope she do tell Trey and I pray Trey understand and don't turn his back on her. I know he is going to be mad and hurt.

Prittbrowniiz BestSellerAngel's picture

“I’m on your side. I’m always on your side, but baby you don’t want to go into your marriage with secrets. You hated them being kept from you when Trey did it. You made him promise you not to keep secrets anymore. Do you think it’s fair that you ask this of him and you not do the same?” I got upset again.
“But mom, I’m scared.” I cried. “I don’t know what Trey is going to think or even act once he hears this. I don’t want to lose him.” I literally had a meltdown. My mom wrapped me in her arms. She was crying too. We cried together being each other’s shoulder. I know she was hurt about my father keeping this a secret from her too. I felt horrible for putting him in that position back then, but I knew my daddy would do anything for me, so I used that to my advantage. I think about that now and I feel so guilty for it, only because of my mom. My choice forced my dad to make a choice and now the choice he’s made has come back and hurt my mom. She was right. Life is funny and as afraid as I am to tell Trey this news I’m gonna have to do it and live with the consequences. I just hope I’m living with them with Trey in my life than not.

Prittbrowniiz BestSellerAngel's picture

“Baby why won’t you just tell him. El is dead now. He can’t hurt you anymore or even cause any harm to your child.”
“Trey has enough on his mind to deal with. He doesn’t need to know this too. I mean why should I tell him mom? I don’t have the child. She’s not with me or knows anything about me. I made it clear that I didn’t want any contact with her, so what does he need to know for?”
“Shanell listen to me. Things happen baby. Take Trejay for instance. What if he ends up meeting her and dating her years from now and doesn’t even know it’s his sister.”
“Come on now mom you’re reaching here. That’s not gonna happen.”
“Tell me that it can’t happen…tell me Shanell. Don’t give the excuse about the age difference either because nowadays that’s not an issue.”
“Why do you always do this to me?”
“Sweetheart because I love you. I don’t want you to ruin what you have with Trey due to secrets.”
“So you’re not going to let this secret come between you and daddy?”
“Look, we’re not talking about me and your father right now. I’m talking about you. I understand all your reasons for thinking Trey shouldn’t know, but Shanell life is funny. I never knew I’d be standing here finding out that I have a grandbaby; other than the two I know about, along with your father knowing about it and hiding it from me. You never knew that in your future this secret was gonna be exposed, but look at what life’s choices brought you. Don’t keep this a secret from Trey, Shanell. Haven’t you had enough of that by now? He needs to know and one day so will Treyonna and Trejay.”
“I can’t tell him mom!”
“Shanell you have to! This is serious! Trey deserves to know and I won’t stand by this time and allow you not to say anything.”
“Whose side are you on?”

Prittbrowniiz BestSellerAngel's picture

“As long as El lived no one was going to know about her. I had to protect her mom. If El knew about her he would’ve tried to use her to get to me. He didn’t deserve to be a father. Do you think he cared about my well-being when he held me captive in that cabin knowing that I was pregnant? All he cared about was getting money. That’s all he’s ever cared about. There was no way I wanted him anywhere near her and if I had to keep her non-existent for that to happen than that’s what it was gonna be.”
“I can’t believe I have another grandbaby. I’ve been a grand mom all these years and didn’t even know it, but your father knew.”
“Mommy please know that I never did this with the intention to hurt you. I had to protect my baby.”
“She’s not a baby anymore now is she Shanell?”
“No mom she’s not. She’s seven years old.”
“How do you know that she’s alright? That whomever has her has given her a good life and that she’s even still alive?”
“I don’t know. I try not to think about that at all. I just have to believe that the adoption agency that daddy found was a good one. But in my heart I know she’s alive.”
“You don’t even miss her? Or even curious about her at all?”
“In the beginning yes. I thought about her all the time, but that’s why I never saw her because that would make her more real to me and I couldn’t handle that. Then after some time I made myself not think about her anymore. I knew what I did was for the best and El would never be able to hurt her and use her.”
“Are you still planning on keeping this secret from Trey?”
“Yes mom I am. He doesn’t need to know.”
“Shanell, El’s mother is on the war path. If she gets even close to finding out the truth about her having a grandchild out there she is going to try to come after you for some answers.”
“I know. That’s why I’m going to go see her.”
“Oh no…no you’re not!” My mom said emphatically.
“Mom I have to. I have to take care of this now before Trey finds out or starts hearing things.”

Prittbrowniiz BestSellerAngel's picture

“Please don’t let this come between you and daddy. He wanted you to know, but I didn’t. I didn’t want anyone to know. I begged and pleaded with him not to tell. I just wanted it to go away.”
“But Shanell you should’ve known you could come to me about anything. I’m always here for you. Why didn’t you know that?”
“I just didn’t okay! I was ashamed. The only thing that made any sense to me was keeping her a secret.”
“It’s a baby girl?”
“Yes.”
“When did you have the baby Shanell?”
“She was born April 26th the day after you went on your trip to Australia.”
“I don’t believe it…I don’t freak'n believe it! Bruce never said one word about anything when I had gotten back. As a matter of fact you weren’t even here once I returned. You were over Sharon’s your dad said. DID SHE KNOW?” she yelled.
“No. She just thought I was there to recuperate from being sick because you were out of town and daddy was working. Daddy told her he would feel so much better if she could look after me. He didn’t want me to be alone after having the baby. It was around spring break so she didn’t think anything of it.”
“So you had the baby and your father took care of the adoption side of it?” I shook my head yes. “How’d you do it without the father’s consent?”
“I forged El’s signature.”
“Oh dear God.”
“Mommy I had too! If he knew he had a baby my life would’ve really been over. I couldn’t let him know.”
“Well then how could he had found out about it now Shanell?”
“I don’t know!”
“I…I don’t know what to say. I don’t know what to say about any of this. Here I am thinking this woman on my step is as looney as her son when it’s my family that’s been keeping all the secrets.”
“Mommy I’m sorry for not telling you. No one was supposed to know. It wasn’t supposed to get out.”
“Shanell what about Trey? You actually were planning on keeping this secret from him too?” I wiped my eyes and changed my tone.

Prittbrowniiz BestSellerAngel's picture

sec-r
“How?”
“I didn’t find out I was pregnant until El went to jail. After I was cleared El had been calling me to make a visit…”
“Shanell you were pregnant your junior year of high school?” I shook my head yes. “How could we have not known? I mean I know me and your father worked a lot, but how did we miss this?”
“I was afraid of what would’ve happened if you found out. I wasn’t going to have the baby at first. El had wanted me to also send him some money. He told me where he kept a stash of it and wanted me to bring some of it to him. I was going to take some of it and get an abortion. The more I thought about it I realized it was something that I couldn’t do even though I hated El. I was hoping that maybe I would end up losing the baby, but it never happened. The bigger I got I just wore baggie clothes and stayed in my room. Then one day daddy came home early and I didn’t know it. I had just walked in the kitchen to get something to drink and I wasn’t covered up.” Her eyes bugged out.
“YOUR FATHER KNEW???” She yelled.
“But mom it was purely by accident. I didn’t want you or daddy to know because of the hurt and disappointment that I was going to see all over your faces.” The tears continued to fall. “Just like the way you’re looking at me right now. Daddy looked at me like he didn’t even know me. That was the first time that I saw him cry like that. I let him down. I told him I didn’t want the baby, but I didn’t want to get an abortion. So he looked into having the baby put up for adoption.”
“So you both lied to me? TO MEEE???” she screamed.
“Mommy please, I’m begging you please try to understand. I was young and afraid. I didn’t know who I was gonna turn too. My spirit was broken down because of everything that I’d gone through with El. I had already put you and daddy through enough with that incident alone, then to have to tell you that I was pregnant, I couldn’t do it. Daddy wasn’t supposed to know, but he saw me. HE WASN’T SUPPOSED TO KNOOOWA!” I cried.
