“Bestieeeee!” Arnell exclaimed when she answered the phone for her best friend, Drea. “hey girl what you doing right now?” Drea responded to her excited home girl all dry and she sounded like she had been crying before getting on the phone. “Um nothing right now but u good you sound like you’ve been crying.” Yea I’m straight girl but I need to talk to you today…can you come over?”
Drea tried to sound more like her normal upbeat self but it didn’t work because she and Arnell have been super close since 7th grade. “Yea girl when do you need me to come?” “Now!” That was all Drea said before she hung up the phone. Arnell got dressed in her red graduation t-shirt, jean shorts, and her favorite red vans. Ever since she got those shoes that girl ain’t stopped wearing them since.
She walked down to the bus stop and while waiting for the bus this fine, tall, chocolate boy walked over to Arnell and smiled.
“Hey you know when the next bus come?” “Um 4 minutes”, Arnell answered looking up from her phone noticing the boy’s pretty grey eyes and fresh waves.
“Oh alright thank you gorgeous”, he said stepping a bit further from Arnell and pulling out his phone to pass the time until the bus game. She couldn’t help but take glances over at him every so often. His skin was clear and glowing like he had on the most golden highlighter in the world. Right when the bus came she stepped on and tapped her card but the scanner came back saying the dreaded “insufficient funds”. Arnell rolled her eyes and went into her pocket to pull out a dollar until “pretty eyes” from earlier tapped his card twice and said “it’s cool shortie I got you”. “oh thank you”, Arnell said.
Then he did that thing when boys out their hand on your hip and slide past you while saying ‘excuse me’ knowing good and well they pushing up against your butt. He sat down in one of the only available seats and got back on his phone.
When Arnell heard the name she was brought to tears and couldn’t help but break down. After Drea and baby Khalil got cleaned up Drea’s mom, Arnell and Drea’s brother Andre went in to see the newborn baby and first time mommy. The baby was so Cute! He had beautiful medium brown skin even though Drea was light, a head full of dark hair like Drea but one feature that stood out quite strong . He had ice grey eyes that Arnell swore she had seen before. As Arnell was getting ready to leave the hospital she realized that her crush and best friend had never met. She called him in to see the gorgeous baby and also to meet her bff. As he walked into the hospital room and saw Drea he looked like he had seen a ghost.” Andrea!?!” Andrea stared at him and instantly remembered everything. She was looking at where her child got his eyes.” Hey Jai, meet Khalil, Your son.
