Chapter 8 "Is It To Good To Be True"

When Stoney entered her 2009 HUMMER H2 SUV she was furious so she slammed her fists on the steering wheel. Her anger stemmed from Jada being with Supreme; she just couldn‘t understand it. She knew she had no right to feel this way, which pissed her off even more. Stoney started her truck, shoved the gear into drive and screeched as she pulled off. She headed straight to the bar because she felt she needed a drink. As Stoney went to start in on her long night of drinking, Jada was on her way to a restaurant to have dinner with Supreme. It had been days since they met at the hospital and Supreme finally asked her to have dinner. Jada was happy because Holiday was going to be fine and now Supreme was keeping her smiling. She took a cab because she figured Supreme would drive her home. They met at a chic restaurant in Midtown which Supreme suggested. When she entered the restaurant Supreme was already there. The waitress escorted her to a private section that resembled a royal dinner party.

She looked over at Supreme who at that moment was her knight in shining armor. Gorgeous, funny and a kind heart was how she would describe her. It felt to good to be true. Supreme looked over at Jada who was staring at her with a small smile on her face. “Do I have something on my face?” she asked. Jada giggled. “No. I was just thinking about how you’ve been here for me for the past few days and I really appreciate it.” Supreme smiled and told her it was her pleasure. What Jada didn’t know was she was willing to be there for the rest of her life. It was too soon for her to divulge that information though. She would take her time to ensure she got exactly what she wanted. They did not need to order because Supreme had everything laid out. Jada smiled harder when she noticed she was surrounded by all her favorite foods. 'She is attentive on top of everything else. So far, she poses everything I’ve ever wanted in a relationship. Can she be my soul mate?' she thought to herself.

“Thanks again for suggesting Holiday stay with me while she heals. I can’t believe I didn’t think of it myself,” Jada stated. “Don’t even worry about it. With all the madness of that day I’m surprised you can even remember your own name.“ Supreme chuckled. She reached across the table and grabbed Jada’s hand and started caressing it. “I’m really glad you called me that night though.” Jada blushed at the electricity that shot through her arm when Supreme touched her. The attraction she felt for her was crazy. “I don’t want you to get a big head but you were the first person that came to mind.” They ate, laughed and got to know more about each other. Jada did most of the talking but Supreme didn’t mind. There was so much she couldn’t tell Jada at the moment. When they were finally finished Supreme got up to use the bathroom and Jada admired her as she walked away. She took her phone out and checked her messages and saw Jade's text.

Her sister was going to be home real late because she had to work and didn’t want her to worry. Jada sighed and text back telling her to be safe and she loved her. As she was putting her phone away, Supreme sat back down in her chair. “Everything ok?” she asked as she sat down. “Yes. I got a message from my sister saying she had to work tonight that’s all. I guess I’m gonna have to pick Holiday up by myself in the morning.” Supreme got up to pull out Jada’s chair. “Don‘t worry about it. I‘ll go with you to the hospital and help you home.” Jada smiled and held onto her arm as they walked out to the car. “You really don’t have to. I know you are a very busy person. I really appreciate the offer though,” she said as they stopped in front of the Silver Jaguar Supreme was driving . Supreme leaned forward and kissed Jada on her forehead. “You’ll see just how much I’m willing to do for you.” Jada felt chills run along her spine at those words but left it to the mystique of who Supreme was.

She smiled as she slid into the passenger seat and laid her head back on the head rest. Supreme got in the car, started it and looked over at Jada who looked happy and vowed she would have Jada no matter what it took. After Supreme dropped Jada off at the house the next few hours seemed to pass in a whirlwind of romance. They stayed on the phone until the wee hours of the morning. She thanked Supreme for the daily ritual of breakfast and for the spa day she treated her to. The little gifts she received just to remind her that Supreme was thinking of her. It was like some kind of fairytale that she never wanted to end. This was the happiest she had been in a very long time and it was all due to Supreme. They were still on the phone when Jada looked at her watch and realized it was time to get Holiday from the hospital. She blew Supreme a kiss through the phone before she hung up. Then she found a cute little Chanel outfit and sandals to put on.

Jada knew Holiday didn’t have anything to wear so she packed her a outfit as well. Once she had everything she needed, she exited the house and drove straight to the hospital. Supreme had something to take care of and would meet her there. As she pulled into the parking lot, to her surprise, Supreme was already waiting at the front doors. She got out of the car, walked up to her and gave her a kiss. They smiled at each other and walked into the hospital headed straight to Holiday’s room. Jada peeked her head in through the door to make sure her friend was awake. When she saw Holiday sitting up flirting with the male nurse she chuckled and walked inside. “I see nothing has changed for you girl.” Holiday looked over and smiled. “Hell no bitch! I’m still the shit. Bullet holes and all!” she said as she winked at the nurse who chuckled. Jada walked over and gave her best friend a gentle hug. “I’m so glad your gonna be ok,” she whispered into Holiday’s ear.

“Bitch can’t nobody take me until I’m ready,” Holiday whispered back but Jada could hear the shakiness in her voice. The near death experience scared her but she would never let it show. As they broke apart Holiday noticed Supreme who was still standing by the door. “And who is this?” she asked as she licked her lips. Jada saw the look in her eyes and felt a tinge of jealousy. “This is Supreme. She came with me.” she made sure to emphasis ‘me’ so Holiday would get the point. Looking at Supreme then at Jada, she got the picture. “Ok I hear you girl. Damn can’t blame a bitch for trying. She is fine as hell. What you been doing while I been up in here?” she asked Jada. Supreme laughed. “Well it’s nice to meet you Holiday. You ready to get up outta here?” Supreme asked as she walked closer to the bed. “Hell yeah. I’m tired of all this mush they tryna pass off as food. Yall came to break me outta here?” Jada finished talking to the nurse and turned back towards her best friend.

“We sure are. As soon as the doctor comes with all the necessary paperwork we can get up out of here.” Just as Jada finished her sentence, the door opened and the doctor walked in. Supreme cell phone went off so she went into the hallway to take the call. Jada talked to the doctor and got the ok to take Holiday home. Once all the papers were signed Supreme walked back in the door with a huge smile on her face. “Everything ok?” Jada asked with slight suspicion. Supreme winked at her and asked “We ready?” Jada nodded her head yes. “I’m gonna help Holiday get dressed and then we can get out of here.” Supreme opened the door and told them she would be waiting by the car. Jada helped Holiday out of the bed then helped her get dressed. Once they were ready they had a nurse wheel in a wheelchair which Jada helped Holiday into and they made their way outside. Holiday took a deep breath as she was rolled outside. “You never appreciate the simple things until their almost taken away from you.”

Jada silently agreed as she thanked the nurse for her help and helped her friend into the car that Supreme so nicely brought to the front. The ride home was a quiet one but it was peaceful. When they reached the house Supreme carried Holiday to the door. “Cute and a gentleman,” Holiday said flirtatiously. Supreme just chuckled as she waited for Jada to unlock the door. She then sat Holiday on the couch and got ready to leave. “Wait don’t leave yet. I have to ask you a quick favor,” Jada hurriedly stated. “Jade is gonna take me to go get my car from the hospital in the morning but I need to get a few things out of there now. Would you mind sitting here with Holiday until I get back?” Jada looked at Supreme pleadingly as she waited on her response. “I’m a grown ass woman Jada I can take care of myself. I don’t need a babysitter.” Holiday crossed her arms. Jada looked at Holiday and said, “I know you are but I would feel better if someone was here with you.” Holiday sighed but didn’t protest any further.

“I'll sit here as long as you need me to, go ahead ma I got you.” Supreme stated as she took a seat in a near by chair. “Thank you so much Supreme.” she stated then ran into Jade’s room, grabbed her keys and ran back out. After kissing Holiday on her cheek and giving Supreme a quick peck on the forehead she was out the door. She didn’t want to take too long to get what she needed out of the car. After Jada left there was an awkward silence. Holiday grabbed the remote and turned the TV on. Supreme just sat back and stared at her. “How are you feeling?” Holiday jumped at the deep baritone of her voice in the silence. “I’m fine thanks for asking,” she replied sarcastically. After a few more minutes of awkward silence, Holiday turned the TV off and threw the remote down. “Ok let’s talk. When do I get paid?” Supreme chuckled. “Ah. There goes the Holiday I know. Always about that paper.” Holiday just looked at her.

“Ok so since you know that, when do I get my paper? I went through all this just so you can have your way. I got shot for your ass! So tell me when do I get the hundred thousand you promised me!” she yelled. Holiday grabbed her chest to calm her breathing. She was getting to worked up and felt like she would pass out. Supreme just watched her go through her motions and sat there quietly. She suddenly got up out her chair and walked over to stand in front of Holiday. “Don’t worry shorty. Our agreement is still intact. You’ll get your money,” she said as she leaned in closer to face her. “Don’t forget. You still haven‘t completed your end of the deal. You know what you have to do next.” Holiday just looked at her and started to wonder if it was really worth it.

Chapter 7 "Who Shot Ya"

Jada couldn’t believe what she was hearing on the other end of her phone. She dropped it because of the loud sound of the gun shot. She was still in a state of shock as she searched for her phone. Finally finding it halfway under the passenger seat, she frantically picked it up and looked at the caller ID. She felt all the air rush out of her body as she realized it was Holiday’s number. With her hands shaking uncontrollably, she lifted the phone to her ear and held her breath. Hearing a female voice in the background she strained to figure out what she was saying. “That bitch tried to play me for a sucka. I’m Lucky bitch, you fucked wit the wrong one!” she said with rage in her voice. Jada covered her mouth with her hand to stifle her cries. Then she heard another voice; this time a male. “Did you have to shoot her here though? This is the fucking Regency Lucky.

Shit, it’s smack dead in the middle of Downtown Manhattan so how the fuck we gon get rid of the body! I don‘t know what the fuck you be thinking sometimes. Plus we up here on the fifteenth fucking floor, we can‘t carry her body all the way down stairs! We need to get outta here yo!” her partner said with urgency. “Yo Tommy you getting soft son. I got on gloves so my finger prints aint no where in here. Fuck that bitch! Let’s go,” Lucky said. Jada heard some footsteps followed by the sound of a door closing. She listened for a few more seconds and then she let out a wail full of despair and sorrow. Throwing her phone to the side, she put her car in gear and raced toward the hotel. She knew exactly where the hotel was located and she was only ten minutes away. Racing along the streets like a mad woman she finally pulled up to the front of the hotel. Not even turning the car off she grabbed her phone, flung the door open and raced inside.

Jada didn‘t know what she would find but she was hoping her best friend was still alive. Running past the front desk she only slowed down slightly to yell, “Call the ambulance right now! My friend has been shot, she’s on the fifteenth floor!” Seeing the elevator doors open she pushed past the people already waiting and she frantically hit the button for the fifteenth floor. As the elevator rode up, the people who made it inside looked at her with confusion. The doors finally opened to her floor and once again she pushed past everyone. She didn’t know what room Holiday was in so she pulled out her phone and called her. She slowly moved passed every door listening for T-Pain’s Chopped & Screwed which was her ring tone. She had to hang up and call back a few times before she finally reached the right door. The door was completely closed but she tried the handle anyway.

For some reason the door was not locked and that was weird to Jada. Swallowing her fear, she pushed it open. She had to cover her mouth to muffle her scream. Jada stared at her best friend hanging off the edge of the bed covered in blood. There was so much blood she couldn’t tell where she was shot. Not caring about anything else, she ran to her friend and shook her violently. “Holiday please don’t die on me girl I need you!” she screamed. Not getting a response she started crying again. Before she knew it, paramedics and hotel security were everywhere. She felt herself getting pushed back as the paramedics went to work. Jada was in such shock that she didn’t hear the police when they approached her. They noticed the blank stare in her eyes so they called over a paramedic to check her out. Jada finally snapped out of her daze when she saw Holiday being wheeled out.

“Where are they taking her? Is she alive? Will she be ok?” she asked in a panic. “She’s still breathing but we won’t know until we get her to the hospital. Right now the police have a few questions to ask you,” the paramedic stated. There was no way she was staying behind while they took Holiday. “If they want to ask me any questions then they can ask me at the hospital,” she said forcefully. Jada exited the room with the paramedics and made her way downstairs. After finding out what hospital Holiday was being taken to, she got in her car and drove straight there. When she parked the car, she dropped her head onto her steering wheel. Jada decided to call her sister and let her know what was going on. Jade answered her phone on the first ring as usual because she knew it was her twin. “What it do twin?” Jada responded with sobs as she cried.

Jade immediately became alarmed and asked her sister where she was. Jada got herself together enough to tell her twin her location. Jade told her to stay where she was and that she would be there as soon as she could. When Jada hung up the phone she just sat in her car. She could not believe what was going on. It didn’t make any sense at all; who would want to kill Holiday? She knew her best friend was a gold digga, but she was up front about her shit. She never lied to any of the chicks she dated about anything so why would someone do this to her? Jada continued to cry sitting in her car because she was afraid to go in alone. A half hour had passed when she finally saw Jade pull up. Taking a deep breath, she willed herself to get out of the car. As soon as Jade parked her car, she rushed out and hugged her sister tight. Jada held on just as tight and finally broke down.

She cried with confusion and pain as she kept asking herself why did this happen. When she was finished, Jade stepped back and looked down at her sister. “What happened?” Jada couldn’t respond to her sister‘s question. Jade just stood there and waited, knowing her sister needed time to collect her thoughts. When she was finally ready she told her everything that happened from the time she got the phone call till now. Jade listened intently. She didn’t say anything but it all sounded funny to her. She grabbed Jada’s hand and lead her inside of the hospital. They went straight to the nurses station and asked about Holiday. They were told that she was still in surgery so they would have to wait for a doctor to come and talk to them. Jade told her sister she was gonna hit the streets and see if they were talking yet. She asked her if she would be ok alone. Jada responded by nodding her head up and down.

Chapter 7 "Who Shot Ya 2"

Jade got up and kissed her on her cheek. “Make sure you call me if anything changes,” Jade said softly. Walking out of the hospital she pulled out her phone and dialed Stoney’s number. “Yo,” Stoney answered sleepily. She sat up on her bed and rubbed the sleep out of her eyes. “Yo get up nigga I need you to meet me at my house asap. I’m leaving the hospital now. Holiday got shot and we need to find out what the fuck is going on.” Jade didn‘t wait for Stoney to respond. She hung up the phone and jump in her truck then headed home. Jada sat in the hospital waiting room looking around. Watching the people huddled together talking quietly made her realized how alone she was. She knew she couldn‘t be alone at the moment. She pulled out her phone wondering who she could call. The first to come to mind was Supreme so she immediately located her number.

Even though Supreme didn’t know Holiday she made Jada feel safe. Therefore there was no debating as she pressed send and waited for her to answer the phone. “Hello?” Jada heard her smooth baritone voice and instantly started to relax. “Hey. It’s Jada. Did I wake you?” she asked nervously. Supreme smiled when she heard her voice. “No. I rarely get any sleep. Are you ok ma?” Supreme could hear the slight tremor in Jada’s voice. “Honestly no I‘m not. I’m sitting in the hospital right now.” Supreme stood up forgetting about the paperwork she was currently looking over. “What happened? What hospital? Are you ok?” she asked anxiously. Jada smiled hearing the genuine concern coming from her. “I’m fine. It’s my best friend. She was shot and now I’m sitting here waiting for the doctor to tell me what’s going on.” Jada sniffled trying to hold back the tears that so desperately wanted to be released.

Supreme heard the pain in her voice and wanted to hold her. “Tell me what hospital your at and I‘ll come chill wit you while you wait.” Jada truly appreciated the fact that she didn’t have to ask her to come. She told her the location and secretly thanked God for sending someone to be by her side. When they hung up she started reminiscing about her and Holiday as young girls. As Jada waited for Supreme, Jade and Stoney were sitting in the living room of Jade’s house discussing everything that went down. “We gotta figure this shit out cuz the whole damn thing sounds funny to me,” Jade told her best friend. “From what you told me the shit do sound funny. Imma hit the streets so we should know something by the end of the day,” Stoney stated. Jade had a lot of nervous energy so she stood up and started to pace the floor. “Where is Kayron? We got some other business to discuss.”

As Stoney started to tell her she told him to come over, there was a knock at the door. Walking to the door she opened it and stepped to the side to let Kayron in. After filling him in on what happened, they started to discuss the meeting Jade had earlier that night. “As you both know I had a meeting concerning a really big job. We were referred to him by a really big client we had last year. The job will be long and dangerous. Nothing we can’t handle though.” Kayron was with it so he looked towards Stoney to see her reaction. “What‘s the job?” Jade sat back down in the chair and proceeded to explain the preliminaries of the job to her two partners. “We gonna have to take out a few people that are getting in the way of the client. We will get each target one at a time whenever the client is ready to disclose that information. The client has offered to pay us a half million dollars at the end of the job. Each.” Kayron whistled as he heard the amount.

He was thinking what they all were thinking; for stacks like that they are definitely taking the job. Jade looked at her friends and could tell they were down. They always had her back whenever she needed them so why would that change now. As she leaned back in her chair, her phone started ringing. It was Jada. “Wats good sis everything ok?” Listening intently to her sister she started to relax. “Ok so you need me to come and get you?” she asked anxiously. Stoney watched as Jade suddenly tensed up and started to frown. “Well, be careful yo. Let me know when you on your way back to the crib.” Jade listened for a few more seconds then hung up. When she sat there and didn’t say anything Stoney couldn’t take it and asked, “What happened?” Jade looked up at Stoney but had a far away look in her eyes. “Holiday is gonna be ok. She said the surgery went well and she was talking a little bit but she don’t remember nothing.

She was shot in her chest and the bullet just missed her heart. It went straight through and came out the back. So it didn’t cause to much damage. It’s gonna take a while for her to heal so she will be staying with us,” she said distractedly. Kayron looked over in confusion. “That sounds like good news. Why you over there all uptight? I know you don‘t fuck with Holiday like that but damn she just got shot J.” Looking down at her clenched hands, Jade slowly let the tension out of her body. “It‘s not that K. I was just thrown off by what Jada just told me. She said she’s fine and she’s wit Supreme. Yall already know how I am about my lil sister.” Kayron looked over at Stoney who had suddenly tensed up. “Yo I heard Preme paper is long as hell but nobody really knows what she does. She got major influence in the music industry too. Everybody who‘s anybody know Preme so I can understand your concern,“ Kayron stated matter of factually.

Stoney on the other hand became irritated. She couldn’t sit there and listen any longer. “Are we done here yo? I need to go see what’s going on in these streets.” Without waiting for a response, Stoney stormed out of the house and slammed the door. Jade looked at K with a question in her eyes but he just shrugged. Jade ignored it and told Kayron about the first hit. She explained how she felt it should go down. Kayron agreed and told her to let him know when Stoney finds out anything. The situation with Holiday was personal and needed to be handled immediately.

Chapter 6 New Beginnings

While Jada, Jade and Stoney were arguing, Kayron was way on the other side of town handling some business. He was spending his day trying to get a court order to change his ID over. Legally changing his name and sex was all he needed to complete his transition. He was excited and feeling high on life. After a while he left the court house with his order in hand. He hopped in his midnight blue Range Rover which was parked not to far from the entrance. Once in the car he pulled out his phone and tried to call Jada. He got her voice mail so decided to drive over to Jade‘s house. Kayron was excited to share his news with Jada. A half hour later he pulled up to the front of the house and parked. He got out the car and practically ran to the door to knock on it. When no one came to the door he knocked a little harder. Still getting no answer he jiggled the doorknob and the door opened.

Jade would never leave her door unlocked so an alarm immediately went off in his head. He grabbed his Desert Eagle from the small of his back and slowly walked in. He quickly scanned the living room and crept in further. After a few steps he stopped and waited for a few seconds to listen for any movement. He heard noise coming from Jada’s room. Kayron took a deep breath and walked up to her door. He prepared himself then pushed the door open with his gun raised; he couldn’t believe his eyes. He stood dumbfounded as he watched Stoney and Jada kiss and touch each other passionately. Suddenly, Jada’s eyes met Kayron‘s and she froze. Stoney looked at her confused until she turned around and finally noticed Kayron standing there. She jumped up and wiped at her mouth. “Oh shit what up K ummm I ummm, listen ---,” Kayron waved his gun stopping her explanation.

“Don’t even worry about it. I know Jade well enough to know this stays between us. I don’t know how long this has been going on. I do know this though, this shit can‘t happen again. So ya’ll better get it together,” he said with authority. Jada nodded her head as she frantically got herself together. “Your right and I’m sorry you had to see this.” Jada stood up and tightened her robe as she stared at Stoney, willing her to do something with her eyes. All Stoney could bring herself to say was, “Ima go and check on Jade.” She walked out of the room and closed the door. “Listen Kayron--,” Jada started but Kayron cut her sentence short. “It’s over with” he said as he took a seat on her bed. “Anyway, I tried calling you but I got your voice mail. I went to the court house and got the court order I need to legally change over my ID. You remember when I told you it would make things easier if I have it.”

Kayron stated with excitement. He was definitely in rare form so Jada smiled broadly as she walked over and gave him a hug. “I’m so proud of you K. I knew it would all work out for you. Go tell Jade and Stoney so we can all go out and celebrate. I’m going to get ready now, so tell Jade to get her ass out the bed. Now get out so I can go take my shower.” Kayron chuckled and got up. After one more hug they both walked out the room; Jada headed for the bathroom and Kayron went straight to Jade’s room. When Jada was ready they decided to go out and eat to celebrate Kayron’s news. Since Kayron was a vegetarian, they went to Atlas in midtown Manhattan. After they enjoyed their meal and talked for a while it was time to go. They were headed back upstate to Jade’s house but decided to stop and shop for the ball they were attending that night. It was Roxi Moulin’s ball who was a personal friend of Kayron.

He was very into the ball scene where as his friends were not. They were only going to support him because this would be his first time walking as a Trans-man. They shopped on Fifth Avenue then headed back to Jade’s house to change. Once everyone was dressed they piled into the truck and headed towards The Loft where the ball was being held. As they all walked inside, Kayron smiled because this was where he was most comfortable. Looking around the club, he spotted Roxi walking over to him and met her half way. They shared a tight hug as Roxi said, “I’m so glad you could make it! Right on time too. Come on I’ll show you guys to your table.” She acknowledged everyone before she turned around and walked towards all the tables along the runway. Roxi made sure they were all comfortable and walked away. Jade went to the bar to get everyone a drink except Kayron. He never drank before he walked a ball.

When everything started, Kayron excused himself and went to get ready for his category which was coming up. As soon as his category was called, he came out with only a pair of basketball shorts on. He received tens across the board and the crowd was in an uproar. Kayron was 6’ 2” 185 lbs with a very dark complexion and a bald head. His vigorous gym work outs showed through his physique. His body looked as if someone sculpted it with a chisel and hammer. He stood their flexing every muscle for all the ladies to enjoy. There was one other contender who couldn’t measure up to Kayron so it was no competition and he sat him down quickly. After Kayron won and received his trophy, he went to the back to change. As he was walking back to the table, he heard Jade ask Jada and Stoney why they were acting so weird. Jade saw Kayron walking up and was the first to stand up. “I got some business to handle so we gotta get outta here.

Good look on the win though K,” she said as she gave him dap. He saw Roxi standing by the bar and went to tell her goodbye. When he reached her, she told him how proud she wasof him. They exchanged a few pleasantries then parted ways. Soon they were all back in the truck and headed upstate. The whole drive consisted of them talking about all the people who walked that night. When they got to the front of the house Kayron and Stoney got out first and walked towards the front door. Jada stayed behind to say goodbye to her sister. The first thing Kayron did when they were at the door was push Stoney. “What the hell you pushing me for?” Stoney asked. Kayron shook his head as Jada walked up and opened the door. “I‘m glad yall could come out tonight. I gotta go so imma holla at yall lata,” Kayron stated as he pushed Stoney again and gave Jada a hug.

Jada said goodbye while Stoney walked in the house. She watched Kayron walk to his car, get in and drive away. After she closed the door, she turned towards Stoney who was sitting on the couch staring at her. She started walking towards her room when Stoney started talking. “Look about what happened earlier…” she said as she got up and walked towards Jada. Jada put up both her hands and cut her short. “Let‘s not even go there Stoney. It was a mistake and it won’t happen again. It’s only gonna make things worse.” Stoney looked down at Jada’s hands and didn’t say anything for a few seconds. She took a step back and looked Jada straight in her eyes. “Your right,” she said with defeat. “We can’t let it happen again.”


Chapter 6 New Beginnings Part 2

Even though the words left her mouth she felt differently inside. It was like Jada had some type of magnetic hold on her. Stoney took a step closer to her and started to reach out to her but stopped. ‘Fuck it. This might be the last time anyway’ she thought to herself. She grabbed Jada and pulled her in for a kiss. Jada couldn’t even fight it and melted right into her arms. When Stoney felt her soften under her touch she realized what she was doing and cursed herself. She knew she couldn’t have her and this would make it harder to let go. She pulled away roughly and let Jada go making her stumble forward. “Ima get outta here yo,” she said as she walked towards the door in a haste. Jada was still a little dazed but was brought out of her dream state by the slam of the door. She just stood there in amazement, not believing what just happened. After she thought about it she was glad Stoney did what she did.

She was a damn good kisser and things could have went a lot further. She liked Stoney’s touch but there was nothing between them other than that. Being in the house was not an option at this point so she grabbed her keys and walked out. Once she was in the car she started driving aimlessly in silence. She didn’t know what to do so she headed to the city. When she looked up she was at the pier so she parked and got out the car. While walking along the pier she found herself looking out along the darkness of the water. As she walked up to the railing, she saw someone standing there. Not wanting to disturb the other person Jada turned to walk away. As she turned she heard someone call her name. Turning around, she squinted into the darkness trying to see who the stranger was. The voice sounded slightly familiar but she couldn’t put a face to it.

She watched as the shadowed figure walked closer to the light. When she was finally able to see who it was she actually started to laugh. “I swear you gotta be stalking me.” She smiled as Supreme stopped in front of her. “I‘m not stalking you ma, I just happen to be at the right place at the right time,” she said and smiled brightly. When she smiled Jada noticed her deep dimples. Jada was definitely attracted to her but tried to keep her composure. “What has you down at the pier all alone?” she asked Supreme. “I come here to think sometimes when I need to clear my head.” Supreme didn’t feel the need to tell her she was never alone. Her henchmen were discreetly moving around the pier watching her back. Jada smiled and walked up to the railing to look over. Supreme followed her lead and stood next to her. Neither one of them spoke. Jada stared at the water and Supreme stared at her.

She couldn’t believe how lucky she was to have Jada end up on the pier. Ever since the club, Supreme couldn’t get Jada out of her head. She watched as Jada’s hair flew in the slight breeze and thought she had to have her. Jada turned to find Supreme’s eyes on her and felt herself blush. The intensity of her stare made Jada hot. She couldn‘t deny what she felt inside but it bothered her that Supreme could make her feel this way without even knowing her. Pushing away from the railing she started walking again. When she saw that Supreme was still leaning against the railing, she raised an eyebrow and asked, “Are you coming?” Grinning widely, Supreme walked to where Jada was standing and grabbed her hand. Jada’s first instinct was to pull away but she resisted the urge. When their fingers interlocked it felt natural; like this was meant to be. Jada felt at peace walking with Supreme.

They connected in a way where the silence between them was comfortable instead of awkward. The whole situation was completely new to her but she liked it. “What has you out here in the middle of the night ma?” Supreme asked. Jada took her time to answer. Stoney was the reason she was out there but she wasn’t about to say that to Supreme. “I just needed to clear my thoughts. I wasn’t headed anywhere special but I‘m glad I bumped into a friendly face,” she said earnestly. Supreme looked down at her watch knowing she had something important to do. She was always about her business but she couldn‘t bring herself to leave Jada. “Would you like to talk about what‘s on your mind?” Supreme asked with concern. Jada shook her head no and stopped. “I’d rather talk about something else if you don’t mind.” Supreme looked down at Jada and fell in love with the beauty of her eyes.

She decided she wanted Jada to be hers for life. Supreme let go of her hand lifted both of her hands toward Jada’s face. Jada closed her eyes and exhaled. Supreme gently caressed her cheek and marveled at how soft her skin was. She was giving Jada exactly what she needed at that moment. It was such a change to have someone be openly soft with her and mean it. Supreme had a rough exterior but with Jada she was sensual. When she felt her pull her hands away she opened her eyes and saw Supreme smiling down at her. “I have to get going. I’m glad that I was able to see you tonight though. Would it be possible to see you again sometime?” A distraction from the chaos she called her life was what Jada needed. She said yes and they exchanged numbers. Supreme grabbed Jada‘s hand again and insisted on walking her to her car. They walk to the car was short but they talked about the night at the club.

When they reached the CLK they just stood there looking at each other. Neither one of them was quite ready to leave. Jada felt like a school girl again. She had butterflies in her stomach and couldn’t look in her eyes. Supreme lifted Jada’s head so she could look in her eyes. “It was a pleasure seeing you again Jada. You are certainly someone I would like to get to know,” she said with that sexy bass in her voice that turned Jada on. She smiled and said, “I enjoyed our walk and your company as well Supreme.” Supreme loved the way she spoke her name with such a soft tone. She leaned in and kissed Jada on her forehead. “Hit me know when you get in the crib so I‘ll know your safe.” Supreme didn’t wait for a response; she just disappeared into the dark. Jada knew she shouldn’t be falling for Supreme but she couldn’t help it. Lord help her because she just knew she was heading for trouble.

Supreme made her feel weak for her and she wasn’t strong enough to love someone right now. As Jada pulled off her phone rang. When she answered she heard someone screaming on the other end. She couldn’t make out the voice but the next thing she heard made her drop her phone and slam hard on her break.

Chapter 5 "TRUTH BE TOLD"

Jada sat on the couch flipping through channels as she listened to Holiday complain about some random chick she was messing with. “I‘m mad I even let that bitch know where I live wit her broke ass,” she said with attitude. “I told you not to take her to your crib. You met her in the grocery store for goodness sake,” Jada stated almost laughing. She rolled her eyes as Holiday tried to justify her actions. Hearing the doorbell ring she told her best friend she would call her back and got up to answer the door. When she opened the door she was surprised to see her friend Madison. Madison grew up with Jada and Holiday but they didn‘t hang out much anymore. She was a successful attorney so she really didn’t have the time. When she did have time she would only visit Jada. She didn’t like the lifestyle that Holiday grew up and got accustomed to so she stayed away from her.

“Hi Madison how have you been? I‘m surprised to see you.” Jada stepped to the side to let her friend in the house. Madison came in and took off her coat. “I’m doing really good. I’ve been trying to catch up with you for a while now.” Madison sat on the couch and turned to look at Jada. “I went by your house to try and find you. When I pulled up I saw Jade and Stoney coming out dressed in all black. What happened?” Jada sat next to her friend and proceeded to tell her everything that went down. She just sat there in shock. When Jada was done Madison said, “I missed a lot huh? I guess that’s why Kayron was pulling up to the house when I was leaving.” Jada looked at Madison with a blank stare. She couldn‘t move or speak. Madison kept talking not noticing Jada’s sudden stillness. Hearing Kayron’s name let Jada know Styles was dead. She knew he only came around to clean up after Jade and Stoney completed a job.

She sat and thought about how close they were. Even when Jade and Stoney didn’t want her around, Kayron would always make sure she was included. She was the one who went with him to get his first set of testosterone shots. He always took her with him because he didn‘t feel Stoney and Jade would be able to understand. Kayron was a tomboy from the beginning. Jade and Stoney knew about the transition he was going through, but they couldn’t show the love and understanding he needed like Jada did. She remembered her long conversations with Kayron about his transition and they both knew that is what made them so close. Kayron never shared with anyone what he shared with Jada. That’s why it hurt her that he didn’t even feel the need to tell her what went down. Jada stood up abruptly cutting Madison off in mid-sentence. “I just remembered that I have to be somewhere.

I’m gonna call you later. We can have dinner and catch up ok?” She gathered up Madison’s belongings and pushed her towards the door with urgency. “I’m sorry to rush you like this but I really do have to go,” she stated. Not giving her friend a chance to respond she nodded her head goodbye and closed the door on her confused face. Jada leaned against the door and let out a deep sigh. She couldn’t fathom the thought of Styles being dead. She walked over to the couch with unsteady legs and sat down. After they told her they wouldn’t kill her they went and did it anyway. As she sat there staring at her slippers, she heard the door unlock then Stoney and Jade came through the door laughing. Jade walked over and sat next to her sister. She waved her hand in front of her face and saw Jada didn’t even blink. Jade looked up at Stoney confused.

She snapped her fingers a couple times and finally got Jada to blink. Jade watched as Jada slowly turned her head to look right at her. The next thing she knew Jada smacked her across the cheek. “What the fuck!” Jade jumped up off the couch and watched as Jada slowly got up. When they were face to face Jada punched her sister in the chest as hard as she could. “Why did you do it? Why did you have to go and kill her?” she screamed at the top of her lungs. Tears were pouring down her face as she swung wildly at her twin. Stoney walked over and tried to grab Jada but she turned to face her and started pounding on her. “Don’t think you‘re gonna get off the hook. I told you to watch her! Yall just don‘t fucking listen!” she said screaming. Stoney stood there and let the hits continue because she felt like shit. She knew Jada would be mad but there was no way Styles could live.

Jade grabbed her sister by the arm and turned her around. Looking in her eyes she said, “Calm down. Your lucky I don’t have neighbors close enough to hear you. If I did we would all be done for. Now if you would listen to me then you would understand.” Jada snatched her arm away from her sister and looked at her angrily. “I don’t wanna hear shit about it. You did the one thing I asked you not to do and had the nerve to keep it from me!” She turned towards Stoney and just looked at her. Her silence hurt Stoney more than any words could have. Jade shook her head and walked towards her room. She wasn’t about to stand there and let her sister rag on her. She knew she did what she had to do to protect her sister and her own reputation. Stoney and Jada continued to stare at each other even after hearing Jade’s bedroom door slam.

Stoney tried to take a step towards her but Jada took a step back. “Don’t come anywhere near me. I can’t even look at you anymore.” she turned away from her and walked around the couch towards her bedroom. Stoney stood there with her head down for a minute. She felt horrible but she was gonna make Jada see and understand why they did what they did. She walked into her room and had to duck real fast to avoid the flying shoe. “Get the hell outta my room! I don’t wanna see either one of you!” Stoney watched as Jada stomped out of her room and into the bathroom. Completely ignoring Jada’s wishes she went and sat on her bed. She was going to sit there for as long as needed. Knowing that Jade would just ignore her sister until she calmed down, she had to be the one to make it better. She was contemplating what to say as she heard the shower start.

Hearing the shower made her figure she would be there a while. The more she thought, she started to feel like a punk. Stoney thought her feelings for Jada were obvious at this point. She shook her head and stood up to leave. As she walked out the room she heard the bathroom door open and turned to look in that direction. What she saw made her eyes widen and her jaw drop. Jada strolled out of the bathroom with her robe untied. She was wearing a black bra with boy shorts from Victoria’s Secret. Her hair was up in a bun with a few tendrils hanging on the side of her face. She was the most gorgeous woman Stoney had ever seen. When Jada realized Stoney was standing there staring at her, she fastened her robe in a hurry. Stoney got her senses together and gave Jada her back. “I’m sorry I didn’t mean to stare. I was just caught off guard that’s all. I’ll just talk to you when your done.”

Cursing herself for that rookie mistake, Stoney started to walk away. Before she could go too far she felt a light touch on her back and froze. She turned to face Jada who was looking down and shifting her weight from one foot to the other. “Listen, I’m sorry for going crazy on you. It’s just the way I found out was foul. Deep down I knew ya‘ll would kill her. I knew Jade wasn’t gonna let it go that easily. It just caught me off guard and I guess I overreacted,” she said quietly. Jada walked back to her room and sat on the bed. Stoney followed behind her and sat down too. She tried to keep her eyes on Jada’s face instead of her upper thighs, which were being exposed. She cleared her throat and said, “You didn’t overreact. We knew it wouldn’t sit well with you. Styles already knew the deal when she put her hands on you.” she stated softly. Jada laid her head on Stoney‘s shoulder.

She let out a sigh and lifted her head again. She turned and looked Stoney in the eyes as she said, “Thank you for always being here for me. I really do appreciate what you and Jade do for me.” Stoney sat and stared into her eyes and watched as Jada licked her lips. It only made her wish that she was the one who was licking those lips. Before she realized what was happening, she felt herself moving closer. Instead of stopping her like she was expecting, Jada closed her eyes. She took that as a green light and went in for the kill. Soon her wildest dreams came true as she kissed her soft and supple lips. Jada sighed with content as she wrapped her arms around Stoney’s neck. Soon they were both getting deeper into the kiss. She felt Stoney’s hands run up her thighs and settle on her ass. Stoney couldn’t get enough of her and slid her tongue deeper into her mouth.

With intense passion Stoney moved her hands from her ass up to her breasts. Her nipples were totally erect so Stoney squeezed them with her two fingers lightly. Jada moaned with pleasure as the moisture between her legs began to develop. She begged Stoney to take her breast in her mouth. She chose to suck on her neck instead and moved her hand from her breasts back between her legs. Jada‘s hormones were going crazy from all the kissing and touching. Styles never made her feel like this before. It was like Stoney had magic fingers. Her legs began to tremble as she threw her head back. The intense heat between them had them both in a daze. Neither one of them heard the door open. When Jada lifted her head back up, she opened her eyes and froze. The sudden change in her demeanor brought Stoney out of her zone. She turned around to see what had Jada stuck and her jaw dropped when she saw who was standing there.

Chapter 4 Special Addition Time Part 2

They locked eyes for a brief moment but Jada broke it off first. She turned around and walked straight into Unk. "Jada are you ok, what happened?" she asked sounding concerned. Jada nodded her head letting her know she was ok and then explained what happened. It pissed Unk off that someone would try to get stupid at her event. She was even more furious because Jada was her special invited guest. She was about to go and handle the situation but Jada pulled her back. She told her it was alright because someone already defused it. She raised her hand and pointed in the direction of the mysterious stranger and asked who she was. " Unk turned around in time to see the female walking away with a smile. "Oh that's Preme. She's a real good dude. She comes out and supports a lot of PayDay events. I'm not surprised she brought things to order. Do you want me to introduce you?“ Jada ignored the question and watched as her rescuer walked away.

Unk was concerned about her well being since she was the one who invited her there. “Yo Jada I don’t want anything to happen to you while your here. I know how your twin get down so you gon chill wit me for the rest of the night“. She grabbed Jada’s hand and led her upstairs to where all the models were getting ready for the fashion show. Unk stopped at the bar to grab a glass of champagne for Jada and handed it to her. They continued to walk towards the back stopping a few times as people stopped Unk and asked questions. “You definitely got everything under control around here,” Jada said as she looked around at all the movement. Unk laughed as she said “Yeah it only looks like that because I got you back here with me. I gotta make a good impression. It’s usually really crazy because I have to run around the whole club and make sure everything is on point. Can’t have the guests disappointed”.

Jada nodded her head and took a sip from her glass. It was going to be great working with Unk. She had a head for business and made sure everything was running as smoothly as possible. She followed Unk back downstairs and towards the DJ booth. As she stood there she watched her good friend go over the play list for the fashion show. She showed the DJ which tracks were for which fashion designer’s models and when to play and stop the music. After confirming the track list, they went over to the MC for the night and told him to start the show. Jada and Unk took their seats on the side of the runway and watched the show. When it was all over many people came over to them to congratulate Unk on such a successful show. Unk was excited about the turn out and was ready to celebrate. She turned to Jada and said “Now it’s really time to party”. She escorted Jada to the bar and got her some more champagne.

She on the other hand decided to have a Heineken. Unk wasn’t much of a dancer so she just two stepped on the sidelines. She was really having a good time and was thankful for another successful event. Jada was a little tipsy now so she was really getting her two step on. When a song played she wasn’t too into, she looked down at her watch and noticed it was almost four in the morning. She turned to Unk and leaned over to yell in her ear, “It’s getting late and I’m getting tired. I think I’m gonna get out of here.” Unk nodded her head and yelled back “Ok, grab your stuff I’ll walk yall to the car.” Jada nodded and watched Unk walk away. She then searched the dance floor for Holiday but she was nowhere in sight. She sighed heavily and decided to wait for her in the car. Jada went to the coat check and got her coat and then headed outside. Unk was already standing out there waiting for her.

“Where’s Holiday?” she asked as she looked around for Jada’s friend. “I have no idea. You know Holiday, she probably up in some wanna be baller face. Let’s go”. They turned and started walking in the direction of the garage when Jada felt someone lightly tap her shoulder. When she turned around she found herself face to face with Preme once again. “Are you stalking me?” Jada stated with slight flirtation in her voice. Unk turned to see who Jada was talking to and smiled when she saw her homie. “What up Preme. Thanks for coming out tonight, and thank you for handling that situation earlier” she said as she gave Preme dap. “Not a problem. You know I always come out to support and have a good time.” Preme turned her attention back to Jada. “My name is Supreme but everyone calls me Preme. Can I have the pleasure in knowing your name?” she asked with a smooth voice that had just enough bass to send chills through Jada's body. Jada looked her up and down and said with much attitude trying to hide her attraction, “Jada” Preme laughed at her hostile tone of voice. “Well it’s a pleasure to meet you Jada. Hopefully I’ll have the pleasure of seeing you again sometime soon.”

She turned to Unk and gave her dap again while saying,“It’s always a pleasure. I signed up for your email list at I look forward to the next event. Oh and don’t forget to let me know when you are ready to meet about the foundation project you put me on to. Just hit the cell.” Unk smiled and responded, “Most definitely. We gonna meet up soon. Have a safe night.” Preme looked at Jada one last time with desire in her eyes and then walked to her all black Aston Martin. Unk motioned for Jada to continue towards the garage so she started moving her feet. She couldn't resist turning around to see if she was still watching her; she was and winked at her. Jada shook her head and smiled to herself. She was definitely not ready for a relationship. Being Supreme's presence made her feel feeling she never felt before. She ignored the emotions going on inside of her and continued to walk. When she reached the garage she saw Holiday standing there with some random chick all over her.

Jada was not in the mood. "Holiday what the fuck are you doing, let's go“. Holiday acted as if she didn't hear her so Jada told her she would leave her ass right there. She heard Unk laughing as she walked off to retrieve her vehicle. Jada was ready to go as she pulled out of the parking lot. Holiday was so into the girl she just leaned on the hood of the car. She continued to talk and Jada was fed up so she put the car in reverse. Without the car to support her Holiday squealed and fell to the floor. Jada and Unk laughed again as they watched her struggle to stand up. Jada rolled her window down and shouted "Let's go!" Unk walked over to Holiday and helped her stand up. “I think you had too much to drink miss. Let me help you in the car.” Holiday giggled as she tried to slide her body across Unk’s. Unk saw it coming so she just backed away quickly.

She already knew Holiday and what she was about. Besides that she already has her special lady. “Thank you so much Unk. Your always so sweet”. She giggled again as Unk helped her in to the passenger seat. When she closed the door she walked over to Jada’s window and stuck her head inside. “It’s what I do. Gotta make sure everyone gets home ok. You guys alright?” Jada patted Unk on her cheek. “We’re fine. We had a great time and as usual it was off the chain. Make sure you call me for that meeting we discussed earlier. My schedule is open for you”. Unk winked at Jada and took her head out the window. “I will definitely do that. You drive safe. Hit me up when you get home.” Jada winked back and rolled up her window. She watched as her friend walked away. She was very proud of her accomplishments.

She is the CEO of PayDay Entertainment which has two divisions. Femme side which is PayDay Kyutes and the AG side which is Team PayDay. She also has PayDay Management where she managed a R&B singer and a Rapper. To top it all off she was getting ready to start her own foundation for gay/lesbian teens. Jada just smiled as she started the car and headed towards her best friend’s house. Holiday turned towards Jada with a frown. "Why you do that? I was just getting to know....whatever her name was," she slurred. Then she started to giggle and laid back. "I had so much fun tonight. What about you?" Jada smiled as she thought of the nights events. Not once had she thought about Styles or the fight. “I had a pretty good time.” Holiday turned and looked at her best friend with shock. “A pretty good time? That’s it? All them girls in there tryna holla and you only had a pretty good time?!”

She shook her head and relaxed against her seat. “If I had all those AG's checking for me, they all would have been tricking tonight”. Jada laughed and asked, “Trick on you? Is that all you think about? I wasn't studying none of them anyway. I’m not tryna be in no relationship right now”. “A relationship? Who said anything about the R word? I’m just talking about having fun and enjoying the single life. Leave your heart out of it. That’s what I do,” Holiday said sleepily. “I’m gonna have to put you up on game. The best way to prevent heart ache is to focus on the wallet” was the last thing she said before she drifted off to sleep. Jada drove in silence as she thought about her best friends last remark. It had some truth to it. Every time she put her heart into her relationships it ended in turmoil. Maybe it was time to do things differently. Even though she felt Holiday was right her mind drifted back to Supreme. She didn't know anything about her, but she just felt different being around her. Once again she shook the thought of Supreme out of her mind. She arrived in front of Holiday’s house and shook her awake. Saying goodbye to her friend, she watched as she stumbled up her walkway and into the house. Jada drove off with a smile on her face. It was time to turn things around in her favor.
