[Nicole leaning against the door, fell to the floor crying her eyes out]
Nicole *thinking*: How could I let this happen? How could he let this happen? He means everything to me…just when I thought I had one, he fell through my hands. I hate myself for this. I thought I could finally get someone but I can’t. He seems so right for me. We’ve been through some things together but never in my wildest dreams did I think our relationship would turn out like this…
[Kareem at home]
*Kareem is laying in his boxers on his bed, staring at the ceiling, listening to Joe*
Joe *singing*: What if the woman, what if the woman, what if the woman, was just like you? What if the woman, what if the woman, what if the woman, was just like me? What if the woman, what if the woman, what if the woman, was just like us? What if the woman, what if the woman, what if the woman…could you handle all she’s done?
*The words hit Kareem, like a jack hammer. Something inside him clicked. He realized what he was missing. And then the phone rings*
FV [female voice]: Hi Kareemie!
Kareem *a bit sad*: Oh, hi, Shayla.
Shayla *excited*: How’s my baby? I miss you so much…
Kareem *lieing*: Oh, I’m fine…how’s Jamaica?
Shayla: Oh, it’s beautiful. Just the way I remember it. It’s too bad you can’t be here to share it with me.
Kareem: Well, you know that I couldn’t take off work for this. Otherwise, I woulda been there.
Shayla: I know honey. So where have you been? I’ve been callin you all day.
Kareem *thinking* Oh shit! What am I gonna say? I can’t tell her I was with Nicole all day *outloud* I was chillen with the boys. We hooped today. Then we went to this party and then my home girl had a party at her place.
Shayla: What home girl?
Kareem: Nicole…she threw a party at her joint…
Shayla: You seem to get invited to her parties quite often. How come I never get invited?
Kareem: Because she doesn’t know you, Shay.
Shayla: How does she know you?
Shayla: High school?
Kareem: No, college *sits up on the bed and thinks* Why is she asking me all these questions? She never did this before…*outloud* Shay, why are you asking so many questions?
Shayla: Just wanna know. I don’t want no other females pushin up on my baby.
Kareem: I got it. I can take care of myself *thinks* Man, Nicole and I were pushin up on each other. What am I gonna do? If Shay found out about this, it’d be over between us. I wouldn’t want to end it like this…stop sweatin this Kareem…it’s not like you love Nicole or anything…*outloud* um, Shay, Ima go. It’s like 3:30 in the morning. I’m tired and I have to go to work tomorrow.
Shayla: Ok, baby. I miss you so much…
Kareem *thinking*: I miss Nicole…*outloud* I miss you too Shay…when you come back home?
Shayla: Aww, that’s so sweet. My baby’s counting the days until I get home. I come back next Sunday, only 9 more days.
Shayla: Ok, well, you get your sleep and have a good day at work tomorrow. What time do you get off?
Kareem: Um, I go in at 12PM. I probably won’t get off until like 9 or something. But you know how they like to keep me all late and stuff…
Shayla: Aight well, I’ll let you go. I love you Kareemie.
Kareem: Bye Shayla…
Shayla *thinking*: When is this nigga gonna say it back? *outloud* Bye…
*He hung up the phone and let his thoughts of Nicole linger for a moment. He picked up the cordless phone and looked at it for a minute, as if he were going to call her. But he hesitated*
[Nicole in her room]
Nicole *thinking, while she’s on the internet* I can’t handle this shit…*gets up and gets her cell phone to call her best friend, Liana in Vegas.*
Liana: What’s wrong, baby?
Nicole *a bit shaky*: I need to talk to you…
Liana: You’ve been crying…what’s wrong boo?
Nicole: Kareem and I got into it. I just kicked him out…*begins to cry*
Liana: Whoa, whoa! Slow down mama! Don’t cry. Did you just say you kicked him out? The 2 of you weren’t an item, were you?
Nicole *wiping the tears away*: No. He came to chill with me and he and I went to Porcha’s party. We cam back to my place and got in the hot tub. We began to kiss and I backed off, realizing what we were doing was wrong. I called him out on it and he said to “live in the moment”. So I did. Then he brings up the fact it’s a weird feeling kissing another woman. I got mad, realizing I’m the chick on the side and he said that isn’t true…
Liana: Girl, he can’t have his cake and eat it too!
Nicole: Exactly! He claims he had feelings for me but the timing is off. If we had met sooner, he says we probably would’ve been together right now instead of him and Shayla.
Liana: But there’s one thing I don’t understand. Why was he at your place anyhow?
Nicole *rummaging in her closet*: He didn’t want to stay home alone this Spring Break. So he came to chill with me.
Liana: Where’s his girlfriend?
Nicole: She’s in Jamaica, with her family.
Liana: What did you say to him before you kicked him out?
Nicole: He followed me back here from the hot tub and into the bathroom. I was feeling ballzy and I asked him was it better at home or here with me. He said it’s better at home but he could get used to here. Then I asked what are we gonna do now? He said we have to forget the whole thing ever happened because it wasn’t supposed to happen. That's when I asked him was he sure that was the way he felt. He asked me if I had any other ideas. I had nothing to say. So I went into my room, packed his things and walked to the door with them and told him to leave.
Liana: Wow, girl. I can’t believe it! You actually have a backbone. I’m proud of you but what are you going to do now?
Nicole *putting her bag in the car*: Go to sleep hopefully. I’m so damn stressed don’t know what to do.
Liana: You do that. I love you, girl and you know if you ever need anything you let me know. I got you taken care of. I don’t care what it is.
Nicole: Thank you. I know you got me.
Liana: All day honey. I hate to cut you but Rickey’s on the line.
Nicole: Ok, I’ll talk to you later. Thank you, Liana.
Liana: No problem, baby girl. I love you mama.
Nicole: I love you to mama.
*Nicole hangs up the phone, goes in her room and attempts to go to sleep*
