For a few dollars more.

Nightlife could be the right life
If you’re willing to sacrifice.
B always has a plan
This one involves a skinny dude
Overseen by a large man.
Actually, make that two
I see the other from the corner of my eye Barely in my view.

Getting him to the room is the goal but how is the challenge. “If you slip these two pills in his drink, we will have the advantage,” B said.

Don’t move too fast, don’t move funny. You have to be quick and calm to get his money. Left foot, right foot, one foot in front of the other. I put my request in with the bartender to distract this brother

“Double vodka on the rocks” Be sneaky, like a fox.

I tapped my glass to get his attention
His flirtatious smile parted and begin to mention. He just had to know
Why a beautiful woman like me
Is it a club, solo.

I smiled but my response was interrupted by an altercation.
Two men arguing was the situation
It was also my time to do the crime.

Two pills in his drink, they dissolved quick. After the altercation, we continued our conversation as he started to get dizzy and slur in his speech.

He asked, “What’s your name?”
– Mercy, someone you never wanted to meet.

Teacher Secret Part 1

Leaving my apartment I set out into the city “I am finally here” I thought to myself I was so excited about what was to come new city new job and new opportunities. I was finally living my dream as a high school teacher in New York. As I walk down the streets of Manhattan trying to find something to kill my hunger I noticed a restaurant called the sub-train. Walking in I was quickly seated by the host and ordered a roast beef sandwich. After a while my food finally arrived I started to devour my sandwich I barely looked up. But then I heard a giggle, and then I turned my head for a brief moment and noticed a beautiful woman. She had a cheerful but childish laugh. “You have something on your lip mind if I help?” she asked as she wiped the food off, she could barely sit still due to her childlike giggles. “There you go all better I’m Jasmine by the way and you are?” she asked, “David, my name is David” I responded. “Nice to meet you David you’re not from around here, are you? She asked as she sits next to me. “No, how’d you know?” I asked. “Because people usually don’t order the roast beef sandwich it’s not exactly been the owners are said to use dog meat,” she whispered. I suddenly felt the need to barf. “Oh relax I’m just joking,” she says hysterically laughing. “Very funny,” I said sarcastically. “But I asked because I’ve never seen you around before,” she said. “I just moved here got a new job, what about you what do you do for a living?” I asked. “I’m actually in college I’m out for the summer,” she says as her phone rings she hesitates before deciding to answer it “hello, hey yeah I’m on the way now okay. I’m sorry I have to go but it was nice meeting you again David,” she said as she gets up and walks out of the restaurant. I stayed there for a few minutes before deciding to leave myself, as I walked out I noticed she was standing at a bus stop nearby with a look of frustration I get in my car and pull next to her. “Is everything all right?” I asked. “I don’t have enough bus fare to get home but hopefully the bus driver is nice enough to let me on.” She said. “Well I could give you a ride,” I said. “I don’t know I usually don’t get into a car with strangers” Jasmine responded with a sarcastic smile on her face. “I promise I won’t bite” I responded. Jasmine looked around at her surroundings and decided to take my offer. “All right let’s go,” she said getting in the car. The car ride was very quiet minus the radio playing in the background as we pulled up at a stoplight a notification starts to ring off on my phone. “Oh, I forgot Max,” I said. “Who is Max?” She asked curiously. “The German Shepherd I have to feed him one time if I don’t he’ll tear my apartment up do you mind if I stop and feed him my apartment is just right here”. “No I don’t mind” she responded. Arriving at my apartment, I put the car into the park without turning the car off “I’ll be right back” I said getting out of the car. As I get into my apartment I noticed Max had already started to wreak havoc on the place I could tell he was hungry by the way his tail was wagging. Then I hear the front door open, and unfortunately so do Max. “Oh my God” screamed Jasmine as Max runs and jumps on her. “Max! Get down” I yelled. “I just needed to use the restroom,” Jasmine explained. Oh no you’re fine it’s down the hall to the left she smiled and preceded to the restroom. I wait a couple of minutes and then she finally comes out, with a towel wrapped around her. I was confusingly shocked at what I was witnessing she then walks over to me grab my hand, and brought it under the towel. My hand felt the warmth of her vagina. It was deep, warm, and very wet. She then takes off the towel unzips my pants, took out my penis, and put it in her mouth. I tried to move, but it felt as if invisible threads tied down my body. She took off my jacket, my tie, my pants, my shirt, my underwear, and made me lie down on the couch. Then she mounted me and used her hand to slip me inside her. Once she had me deep inside, she began a slow rotation of her hips. My erection grew larger and harder. I felt I was about to burst wide open. It was something that went beyond simple sexual pleasure. Once we were done we cleaned up and I dropped her off at home. “Well it was nice getting to know you David,” she said smiley as she gets out the car and goes inside her house. I didn’t see her for the rest of the summer. A few weeks later school started and I was excited to begin shaping the minds of the youth. Unfortunately, on my first day, I was late and a sub had to had to fill in. Once I arrived I relieved the sub, thankfully I wasn’t that late. “Alright class my name is Mr. David, welcome to geometry I hope to have a great school year,” I said writing my name on the Whiteboard. The class was very rowdy I can tell that I wasn’t the only one excited about the first day of school I started to calm them down to get started on the agenda as I noticed a childlike laugh that I’ve heard before as I gaze to my left. Jasmine and I locked eyes as her mouth drops open; I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. To be continued…

The Grass Not Greener

“I thought we said through thick and thin,” said Chris as he stood at the door. “Not this thing,” said Ashley walking away with all her stuff packed. Never in a million years he would have thought it would come to this. Did she show her true colors that day? Chris can sense the change in her, this wasn’t the girl he fell in love with. It all started a week ago one night when Chris came home from work. He notices Ashley was being distant, and he’s been feeling the tension in the house lately. He cuts on the TV to break the awkward silence as they sat on the couch.

Attempting to interact with her laughing to get her into the TV show but fails at every attempt. He cuts off the TV admiring her beauty wondering what could be wrong, why she is acting like this. “Why are you staring at me? You know I hate when you do that,” Ashley says with aggravation in her voice. “Baby what’s wrong? I’ve been noticing you’re not acting like your usual self. I am your husband anything, that’s going on you can tell me I am here for you,” said Chris as he moves closer to her on the couch. “Do you want me to be completely honest with you?” She says. “Yes talk to me, that’s why I’m here,” says Chris not knowing what to expect.

” I don’t know if I want to do this anymore. I’m just not feeling it,” she says with a look of discontent. “What? I don’t understand, I know we have our problems Ashley, and I know I can try harder to find a better job, I promise things will get a better baby” says Chris. “No, you should have been got your shit together. This relationship is too stressful and the lies you told me in the beginning even though I forgave you I still can’t get over it and to be honest a guy I used to talk to hit me up I told him we have problems but I told him that I was conflicted about us. I’m just tired of struggling and stressing, plus we are never intimate with each other Chris. I don’t even want you kissing or touching me I’m done.” Chris in shock tried pleading and begging, trying to understand why.

“Look you have a lot to work on as a man, and at this point, I feel like I can no longer help you,” she says as she gets up walking in the restroom. Following her, Chris asks “Can we at least try counseling before we throw our marriage away?” Sarcastically she responds “I really don’t want to be 22 years old going to marriage counseling”, as she wrapped her hair up to lie down. “But you rather be 22 and divorced,” he said walking into their room when all of a sudden Ashley gets a message on Snapchat saying “Are you alone?” She replies, “No he’s here”, then walks in the room and sits on the edge of the bed. Chris was staring at the ceiling wondering how the hell did it get this far. “OK, I’ll go to marriage counseling on one condition. You have to set up the appointment in a weeks time and you have to pay.”

“You got it,” says Chris I just hope we can work this out. “I’ve given you chance after chance Chris I think I have made my mind made up but we’ll see,” She said moving towards the opposite end of the bed sleeping under a different cover. This was the first time in their marriage they slept with different covers, she also went to sleep with her phone under her pillow, which was strange to Chris because she has never done that before. The next day when they got up Chris had to work, on the ride, their Ashley yells, “The fact that you put the butter inside of the cabinet is what I can’t deal with.” “I was high babe sorry,” says Chris. “You’re always sorry, just like this guy in front of us his girl shouldn’t be dropping him off she uttered.” “Ugh! Just get out.” “Damn you don’t see her pushing her dude out of the car, do you? “She pointed the finger then, sped off. Chris walked into work outraged.

Ashley arrives back at the apartment as her friend Bianca decides to facetime her. “Hey girl what are you doing?” “Hey, Ash looking at this application trying to find a replacement for Maria.” “Yea that bitch been slipping,” said Ashley as they both laugh. “Girl do I have some tea for you,” Ashley says. “Guess who hit me up the other night.” “Bitch who?” “Daniel fine ass” “Girl stop lien,” says Bianca “I swear,” Ashley says. “You know that use to be your bee,” Bianca said. “Girl I know technically we never really stop fucking with each other.” “What do you mean aren’t you married?” Bianca said confusedly. “Yes, bitch but we just fell off when I went to college” “Oh OK now I see I’ll pick Daniel over Chris any day you know I how I feel about him sis” Bianca responded.

“Yes girl I do and I finally realized what you meant about Chris, he can’t give me the things I need. Plus Daniel and I Been talking for a few days now and I think I’m starting to fall for him again and I’m just done with Chris he’s just not who I thought he was, our vibe with each other is off, he’s childish, doesn’t have a car, and he not really trying to find a better job I feel like I’m doing it all by my self its too stressful ” Ashley says with tears running down her face damn girl he’s not the one you deserve better than this.” I feel bad for feeling like this because who wants to give up on their husband? But I can’t do it anymore.” says Ashley “Don’t feel bad if you’re not happy, marriage is just a word if the person not fulfilling your needs then they got to go” Bianca says “I know and now he wants to go to counseling I said I’ll go but I really don’t want to, I wish I can just take my name off the lease and just go. I’m tired of being a housewife to someone who can’t do anything for me” Ashley says. “Well girl you have a decision to make,” replied Bianca.

As they got off the phone Ashley starts to think was she really in love? Is this as good as it gets? She just thinks she could be happier with someone else. Her curiosity starts to get the best of her and she may start feeding into some of the flirts with the co-workers, classmates, whoever. She really likes the attention she gets and she learns the more she gives to these guys, the more they flirt with her. How far is too far? At this point, she is just caught in the moment. She wants out but does not have a valid reason to get out. Now, every tiny thing that goes wrong has her asking herself, “Is this enough of a reason to be able to walk away guilt-free?” At the same time, Chris is at work stressed about the marriage he knows she was the one for him. He is not going to give up he was going to fight.

Later that week they went to see the marriage counselor Chris found at a local church. When they walked in, they found two chairs set up a few feet apart facing one another. “We’re going to learn how to Dialogue and hopefully you’ll use these methods at home,” the counselor said as they took their seats. “Jared, I’d like you to speak first,” she said. “I get the feeling that Britt does most of the talking in this relationship, and it would be good for you to talk.” Ashley resisted the urge to explain to her that someone has to do the talking; instead, she settled back into her chair and prepared to listen.

“I guess… um… I feel like…” Chris began to tell the things felt was wrong in their relationship. As Ashley bit her tongue thinking to herself that “what he felt like was bullshit.” After five minutes of explaining himself, Ashley interrupted saying “Jesus, Lady. How much more of this are we going to listen to?” “Let him finish” the counselor responded, “NO I have to be honest I came here to let Chris know that I am leaving him.” Chris is now a huge wreck. He has no idea what just happened. He thought things were going to work out and they were ready to take the next step, and now she is leaving? Now she is out exploring and thinking she is having the time of her life. She has surrounded herself with guys that make her feel good about herself. She is single now, so hey she can give a little more and not feel guilty about it. Now she is giving more and more to each of these guys.

At this time, Chris is still calling and texting and falling apart and actually going through the breakup. The highs and the lows and the really low. But he doesn’t care; he is determined to get his baby back no matter what it takes. No matter how hard he tries, she just keeps pushing him away. He still does not want to give up, so he is going online trying to find ways to get his girl back. He finally decides he is going to try the no contact rule. He sees that a lot of people talk about it and some say it works great. He feels this is his best option so does it for like 2-3 days until he sees something on Facebook or recalls a fond memory and breaks. He calls her, only to be ignored, which really frustrates him. Here he is, trying to give her some space, but at this moment he just needs to hear her voice. So, he starts calling a lot and texting her again. One day, she finally breaks and answers. She is nice but also makes it clear that she does not feel she has made a mistake. She is happy it’s over and hopes the best for him.

He realizes that less contact is not working and the only thing to do is cut all contact So he stops, and this time for good. Meanwhile, She is still doing her own thing. Going on dates, seeing guys that really just want to have sex. Guys that don’t want to settle down, but they feed her whatever it takes. Then, once the guy gets what he wants, all the sudden he is gone. And then the next, and the next, and however many it takes before she starts feeling used. She starts to realize that’s the life she wants. She misses having someone who actually cared about her. And not just sex. She now starts to miss how much she used to be valued. She decides she is going to get back with her ex. But its too late he as moved on and is now with someone new. Now she’s trapped in the life of the fly niggas with diamond rings divorced last year now she’s up 20 guys quickly spreading around the city like she has a point to prove. Stressed out smoking Kush, graduated to coke. Prostituting her body at 304 Park Avenue. You may think the grass is greener on the other side unless you take time to water your own.

AmeriKan Dream part 2:

“How are you feeling?” the Doctor asked. Feeling lost and too weak to answer, I just nodded. “You suffered from head trauma when you were shot in your back, and you hit your head. Luckily, the bullet missed your spine by a few inches. I just need to check your vital signs to make sure everything is fine”. How long have I been in here? I asked. “You’ve been here since January,” replied the Doctor. What month is it? I asked. “It’s December” the Doctor replied. “December! You have to be joking!” yelled Bristol. “I have to get out of here I have a business to run,” I said. “Don’t worry, we’re just waiting for some test results to come back. If everything looks good then you should be out of here by 3 weeks, until then less stress, more rest” said the Doctor, walking out the room. Growing impatient, I decided to sneak out, so I grabbed my clothes. While leaving the room, I saw a staircase so; I maneuvered my way to it without being seen by the nurses and doctors. Getting to the first bus stop I saw, all I could think was “How could this shit happen?” I should have known when Bone said Hector changed locations; he never changes how he does business. I have to get to the house so I can figure this shit out. Getting off the bus, I walk up to the door and rang the doorbell. When she answered the door, her face was in a shock as this guy emerged from behind her “Can I help you?” he asked, “Who the hell is he?” I replied looking at Jane “I’m her boyfriend Todd”. I then punched him knocking him to the floor. “What the hell is going on?” Yells Todd as he gets up. “That was a cheap shot“. “I think you should leave for now I’ll call you later Todd “ Jane said. “ Are you serious? Whatever just call me later, ok?” Said, Todd, as he reaches to give her a kiss but she turns her head “Oh it’s like that? Ok” Todd said walking away. Jane closes the door as I stepped in, “I see you move on quickly,” I said. “I thought you were dead” she stated, “Why are you here anyway?” She asked. “I need my safe storage key. I know you got it. Where is it?” She goes into her bedroom to get the key. I knew by the way she was behaving, that she was either involved or had knowledge of what happened. “So why weren’t you at the hospital Jane?” I asked as I grabbed this knife sitting on the table. “Like I said I thought you were dead,” she said laughing.

I asked her “So you didn’t think to come to the hospital to see if I was”. “No”, she said nervously handing me the key. I pulled her in close as I grinned and kissed her. “I can forgive a lot of things but, what I can’t do is let myself trust someone who lies to me,” I said stabbing her. Her blood started dripping to the floor hundreds of drops, like a red rain of death her legs began to give in, I let her go as she dropped to the floor. I cleaned up the mess and wrapped her body to get rid of it. The next day I got up early to dump the body and to dig up the safe containing $25,000, I had buried in case something happened. This should keep me afloat for the time being. Next, I went to the car wash to get the smell of Jane’s body out of the car. Walking in the car wash, I notice the manager arguing with one of his employees. “Damn kid where the hell you been? I’ve been calling your phone for about 20 minutes now!” said Andy the manager. “I’m sorry Andy. Man I got into a little situation” said Chris. “This is the third time this week. I’m sorry, I’m going to have to let you go,” said Andy walking off. “What the hell? I was only 5 minutes past grace” said Chris furiously. He noticed I was watching from afar. “What the hell you looking at?” he asked, as he walks out of the car wash. I followed after him. “Hey man,” I said stopping him “What’s up?” Chris responded. “I had seen what happened in there. If you ever want to make some real money I got a job for you” Oh yeah what’s the job?” he asked. I said, “Let’s exchange numbers I’ll call you with the details”. Chris replied “Ok cool”. On his way home, Chris ran into some guys from a rival neighborhood. “Damn I don’t have time for this,” he said as he locked eyes with the two men. They proceed by disrespecting him with gang signs; he then gets out to confront the two men, but they pulled out guns and fired at Chris so he runs back to the car to avoid the gunfire. “Damn I can’t keep living like this,” he says as he starts his car and drove off, but the two men cut Chris off as he tries to make a turn, but runs into a curve. Later that day Chris was laying in his bed with his hands behind his head thinking while looking up at the ceiling when suddenly he gets a knock at the door. It’s Rico his friend from the neighborhood,” Wassup homie” says Rico, as Chris opens the door “Ain’t shit, what’s good?” “I heard what happened at the shop,” Rico said laughing. “Man fuck that nigga he was on some more shit I was like 10 minutes late.” “Yeah, but don’t even worry about it. I came to talk to you about some business anyways” says Rico as he pulls out a marijuana joint and lights it. “What it’s looking like?” Says Chris as Rico passes him the joint. “I got this chick on the south side, her daddy fucks with them valley niggas. She said that nigga got 9 ounces of some dope and 2 AK’s.” “Why are you fucking with them south side hoes especially them bitches on the valley you know we don’t fuck with them, and how you plan on getting this shit?” Says Chris. “Man doesn’t worry about all of that everything is green, she wants me to come over later on tonight her daddy goes to the J like around eight o’clock. Do I need to know if you down? Says Rico “Nigga I’m down I’m just not for the crash dummy shit.” Says Chris handing the joint back. “Bro you know you good with me.” “Man comes back through later on bro,” said Chris.

A few hours later Rico knocks at the door. “You ready or you went pussy out on me?” Says Rico.”Nigga lets go” said Chris “Ok bet my sister let me use her van said, Rico. “Let me drive said Chris” Rico gives him the keys and both get in the car, as they pulled up to the girl’s house they made sure to stay low profiled and out of the sight of rival gang members.” Ok look I’m about to go in I ‘ma text you when it’s good”. Rico says as he gets out of the van, heads to the front door, and rings the doorbell.

” Hey, baby come in, lock the door behind you,” The girl says as she opens the door.

“Ok,” says Rico locking door then unlocks it when Nina walks towards the room. Chris gets a text from Rico letting him know it’s good to come in, and where everything was. He then gets out walked inside the house as quietly as possible, while walking to Nina’s dad’s room he overhears Rico and Nina having sex and starts laughing as he goes into the room. Chris opens the closet and spots the 9 oz’s, and guns Rico was talking about also a bag with $5000 inside. He then puts the dope in the bag with the money, grabs the guns, and heads out the door. As he puts the bag in the car, he notices a red van pulling up in the front yard. He then gets in and texts Rico. Rico putting his clothes back on receives the text “Oh shit your daddy here” he yells “Why you say that?” Nina asked while lying in the bed “I think I saw him pull up”, Rico looks out the bedroom window “Isn’t that him? Said Rico. “That is him Ok look just chill. When he goes in the garage go out the window” she said. “Nina! Why the fuck my door open?” Her dad yells. Rico opens, jumps out of the window, and runs to the van then gets in. “Damn you almost got your ass caught.” Says Chris speeding away. Fuck all that did you get the shit? “ Says Rico “Hell yeah, bro and the nigga had 5 racks in a duffel”

“Ah, shit my nigga let’s get this money.” They celebrated Rico said as they drove off, and headed back to the neighborhood…To be continued
