“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 looking up at the ceiling when suddenly he gets a knock at the door. It’s Rico his best 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,” Rico says as they shake hands.
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 walks 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” Chris responded.
“Ah, shit my nigga let’s get this money,” Rico said as they celebrated, drove off, and headed back to the neighborhood...To be continued
