I woke up in the middle of the night as I heard the sound of glass shattering.
I reached for the gun in my nightstand drawer and pulled it out.
I jumped out of bed and crept out of the room silently down the stairs with my hands firmly on the trigger.
I got into the dark living room and found nobody inside. I walked to the window and realized that it was broken. I saw bullets among the pieces of broken glass on the floor. I peeked out of the window and found nobody outside.
I placed a call to Po and Yonas telling them what happened. Yonas came over about an hour later and stayed with me all night.
I later cleaned up the mess of broken glass and left with him in the morning.
Po called for an emergency meeting in the trap and we all assembled. My house wasn’t the only one that was attacked. Ken and Jay’s windows were also shot at. It wasn’t just a personal thing, it’s about the gang.
Trevor arrived the meeting late as usual and trust me, I didn’t spare him a single glance.
As we kept deliberating on what to do about the situation of things, a call entered Po’s phone, Casper-one of our gang members who was not present at the meeting has just been found dead inside his car.
On his chest, the word ‘BLACK’ was written with spray paint.
This is way more serious than we ever imagined.
The Color Brothers want their little brother Grey back. These guys are psychopaths.
The meeting was somehow disrupted by the shocking news. Casper was a very huge guy that’s why he was nicknamed ‘Elephant’ he was a very nice person right from the first day I joined the gang. I kinda find it difficult to believe that he’s dead.
As I buried my face in my palms trying to comprehend the whole situation, I felt like someone was standing in front of me. I lifted my head up and found Trevor standing before me. Yeah, he looked really cute. And if not for everything going on with me and him, I woulda grabbed him and kissed him on the spot. I shook the thoughts out of my mind as I remember how Halle dismissed me the other day and my face tightened into a frown.
“Heard that psychos shot at your window” he said sounding concerned.
“And what do you care?” I replied coldly without looking at him.
“I know I messed up and you don’t wanna have anything to do with me at the moment, I’m very sorry Ivy. How many times I’m I going to say that?” He said sitting down beside me.
“One minute, I step foot out the door and the next you run back to your ex AKA babymama.” I said making air quotes.
“You can’t hold it down for two seconds?” I said cutting him off and pointing at his trousers.
“You won’t get it Mami, I love you and you know it.” He said sounding like he was about to cry.
“Don’t play mind games with me Trevor.” I said angrily getting up and walking over to where the others were still talking about the Casper situation.
“We know where Black is hiding out and we have to find him and bring him back alive. Let’s do this for Casper.” Po yelled slapping his palm on the table.
“For Casper!!” We all chorused raising our fists in the hair.
We all received our weapons and were about to head out when Po called me back to have a word with me.
“You’re not going.” He said and motioned for me to sit down.
I sat down angrily on the table as I glared at Yonas who I’m sure had a hand in this.
I watched as the guys drove out of the warehouse in two vehicles.
“But why’s that?” I asked sounding helpless.
“You’re pregnant remember?” Yonas says and Po nods in affirmation.
I shook my head and sat back in the chair seeing their point. It feels like yesterday when Yonas laid me in the back of the SUV as he and Po rushed me to the hospital when they realized that I was losing the baby.
I woke up the next day in a hospital bed and the doctor later told me that I had lost my baby. I cried like I wasn’t going to survive it but I did.
I don’t ever want to go through something like that again.
“Black is still on the run, I don’t think it’s a good idea for you to stick around town right now. We don’t know what his next move is going to be.” Yonas says as we ate lunch at my house.
“So you want me to run too?” I asked sounding really surprised.
“Yeah, Stacy is at the condo that I got for her on her birthday, Po has dropped Katie with her mom and you need to move too. I’m gonna help you pack up.” Yonas explains.
“I’m not running Yonas. We’re gangsters and gangsters don’t run. We are supposed to keep our feet planted.” I rapped sounding angry.
“Yes you are. You’re saving that baby in there.” He says pointing at my tummy.
“You’re leaving and that’s final.” He says dropping his spoon.
We argued for a while before he finally convinced me to leave town. He helped me pack and drove me all the way to my other house.
He stuck around and played with Mig x Mann all day before returning back. I instructed him not to tell Trevor about where I was before he left.
“C’mon baby girl.” I said laughing at what Katie said on the phone.
We were currently making a video call.
“So is your new tattoo healing?” Katie asked flipping her hair.
“Yeah, pretty quick.” I said caressing the spot on my thigh.
“Don’t forget to send me clearer pictures later will ya”
“And the boys?” She asked referring to Miguel and Manuel.
“They’re growing pretty fast. I don’t know what Mrs Jackson is feeding them.”
“Hahahahaaa! Sounds great. I miss you girlfriend.
“Me too girlie.”
“Hey, I’ve gotta go now, Po’s calling. Talk later.!”
“Alrighty byeee!!! I sang and ended the call.
It’s been two weeks since I moved in here and so far so good, The Color brothers haven’t come looking for me here.
I missed the gang, I missed my zone, Katie, Stacy and baby daddy himself, I just wished that I was running away with him.
We’d stas in bed all day making love and laughing at our own jokes in each other’s arms.
But that’s not going to happen when Halle is still in the picture.
