Lost Souls

*Six Years ago*

We were on the blacktop playing one on one. I was up by two and had the ball "Ju you're never gonna beat me" <a href="">I</a> said faking left and going right and made a lay up making the score 12-8. "game over, you suck Ju" I said sitting on the side of the court taking a swig of my gatorade. "man shut up, you know last game that fat kid fell on my leg" <a href="">he</a> said snatching my gatorade. I laughed at his sorry excuse, then heard my dad calling my name. 

"Tae! Tae! It's time to come in the house"

Ju looked at me "until next time" he said getting up and reaching his hand out to pull me up.

"until next time" I said walking off with my ball as he walked in the opposite direction

I walked in the house to see my mom and dad sitting on the couch with my baby sister.

"what's going on?" I said sitting on my ball against the wall

"shaunte' sweety your dad is being stationed in Wyoming. Sooo we're moving" my <a href="">mom</a> said 

My mouth fell open 

"I know you've made friends over the past five years, but you're young you can make new friends were ever you go" she continued

"and it's not guaranteed that we stay there. We might even end up moving back here" my <a href="">dad</a> said trying to lighten the mood

"but what about basketball, and Julius? He's my best friend"

"Tae you can play basketball anywhere. And guys can call each other or even write letters"

"okay, when do we move?"

"in one week" 

I sighed deeply "okay" and I went up to my room.


Awww mo. ! Thats real. !

Yeahhh mo! Thats how u do it. Al a

Aww I wish they would've gotten back together. I mean they have the whole summer to be together before they had to leave. smh But at least they can have a clear mind and focus on school while they are there. TeamTaeMo


wow i mean i guess its god they did that now i wonder how their future is looking run it

Mo sat outside going over what he was gonna say in his head. He paced back and forth kinda nervous.

Tae walked out and Ju stood by the door. Tae reached Mo and waited for him to speak.

"uhh hey"


Mo swallowed hard "Tae I love you, you're my first love." Tae blushed a little "I don't want to lose you ever. Not only are you my girlfriend but you're my best friend. you've been by my side through everything and vise versa. It's only been a day and I feel like I'm dying a slow death." he took a deep breath. "everyone's right I'm scared. I'm scared of what could happen in college. What if you meet some guy and you just click. What if I meet someone. What if we get super wasted and have sex with some stranger. I know that's a bunch of what ifs but I don't want to chance it's. I don't want to chance us hurting each other from a distance because anything can happen. I don't want to hurt you anymore than I already have. I don't want to call this a break up but maybe just a break. I still want to be friends. I still want you to beat my ass in basketball" he smiled awkwardly wiping the palms of his hands on his jeans.

Tar heard everything he said. She took it in. And he was right. It would hurt more to break up while they were away from each other. He was looking out for both of their hearts. She smiled a little trying to hide the hurt and nodded her head.

"yeah, I understand and that cool"

"okay, well can I have a hug" he opened his arms.

Tae walked forward into his arms and hugged him. She inhaled his scent and some tears began to fall from her eyes. Mo stilted her chin towards him.

"please don't cry. This isn't over and it damn sure ain't goodbye" he wiped her tears and hugged her tighter while a tear escaped his eyes. 

They let go of each other and Tae walked back inside the house. Ju head nodded Mo and closed the door as Mo began to walk home.

Tae walked up to Ju's room and sat on the bed with her knees to her chest. Ju came up behind her and sat next to her.

"what did he say?" Ay said curiously

"stop being so damn nosey" Ty said

"it's okay, we're just gonna take a break I guess. Until after our first year in school maybe"

"you okay?" Ju rubbed her back 

"yeah, I understand what he's feeling. I'm good"

"okay, well we're gonna go" Ay got up with Tyler. "if you wanna burn anything I'm here" Ayanna hugged her.

"I don't think that will be necessary" Tae laughed hugging back. 

Tyler and Ayanna left closing the door behind them. Ju and Tae laid on the bed looking up at the ceiling.

"what do we do now?"

"now, we wait. Only time will tell what's in our future" Tae closed her eyes trying to ease her mind

Hope mo and tae get back together

Lol Ay is so me! *giggles* I'm so rude but anywho

Everybody is speaking the truth no sense in sugar-coating the situation. He needs to be made aware of what he did and maybe if people keep telling him it will get through to him..

He has to stop acting on impulse.

I'm sick of everyone treating Mo like a stepchild!!! its like no one wants to see where he's coming from. Its like he was trying to make the best decision for them both and everyone is chewing him out. Long distance relationships are hard. I understand he hurt Tae, by saying what he said. But his feelings are just as much invested as hers. Damn, cut my mans a break!! Oh well, I know he gonna say he wanna be with her, but I hope he don't feel obligated, just cuz everyone is mad at him. I want him and Tae to work their s*** out, the rest of them don't have to be involved. Its a tough decision and they are each other's first loves forreal. They gonna get it together. Run it!!

After fourth period Ju gave Tae the keys to his house since she ain't wanna go back home. Tae and Ayanna hopped into her pink Audi and drove off.

"why are we going to Ju's house again?"

"because I don't want to face my room yet"

"your room?" Ay asked confused

"I have endless s*** from Mo in there including his clothes"

"are you gonna live with Ju until we graduate"

"hmm that's not a bad idea" Tae chuckled 

"yay! Your laughing. But seriously y'all are gonna get back together."

Tae sat there thinking about the possibility.

"we have a arrived" Tae snapped out of her daze

"what were you thinking about?" Ay asked getting out "was it your beloved Maurice" she patted her eye lashes

"you are do extra" Tae laughed

"that's why you keep me around" Tae unlocked the door and then headed to Ju's room.

"so this is where the magic happens" they burst into laughter

"eww I don't want to think about Lo and Ju getting busy"

"just stating the obvious" she spun around in his computer chair.

<em> even when the sky comes falling, even when the sun don't shine, I got faith in you and I...</em>

"it's him" Tae threw her phone to Ayanna

"what you want me to do?"

"just answer it and out him in speaker"

Ayanna did as she was told.

"you have reached the heart break hotel, Ayanna speaking"

Mo sighed on the other end "seriously, I already feel like some s***"

"you should. You let go of a good thing and now you might not get it back"

"she said that?" Mo sounded crushed

"it all depends on where your head is at. Make you decision lover boy"

"but I-" Ayanna hung up on him.

Ayanna made some sandwiches and did their homework until Ju came home with Tyler.

"why is smell like perfume in here" Ju bust through the doors 

"you're welcome cus it smelt like frittos" Ay said as we burst into laughter 

"y'all ain't funny" he laid down on the bed next to Tae.

"so what y'all been doing?" Tyler pulled Ay out of her chair and sat down with her in his lap.

"nothing just doing homework. Oh and Mo called" Ay answered 

"what he say?"

"that feel feels like s*** and he wants to talk to Tae but I said no and that he needs to make a decision"

"I hope he makes the right decision because this s*** right here" Tyler pointed at all of us "chilling without Mo is weird"

They kicked it for a few hours watching movies and talking until Ju's phone rang.

" sure....are you positive my nigga....Iight, we coming" he Hun up the phone. "that was Mo"

"what he say?" Tae swallowed hard

"he said he's ready to talk and that he's made his decision"

"okay" Tae stood up putting on her shoes

"you ready?" Ju asked

"yeah, let's go . . . . "


What's Mo gonna say??

Tyler's my man!
Dude is straight to the point!
He just doesn't care.
Tell em how it is homie!!!

Run this chick!


stupid is as stupid does.

Run it..

More later

Tae got dressed for school in her Victoria secret sweat suit and put her hair in a messy bun. She grabbed her bag and waited for Ju in his car. Ju came out about two minutes later got in the car and threw his bag in the backseat. 

"you sure you wanna go to school today?" 

"yeah, I'm cool. And I got assignments to turn in."

"okay" he said then pulled off driving towards the school.  

They drove all they way to school in silence. When they got to school Ju parked next to Mo's range since that was his assigned parking spot. Tae got out the car and mugged the car in disgust and stepped off. Ju got his book bag and followed close behind until he caught up by her locker.

"you okay?"

"I really wish you would stop asking me that. I said I'm fine" she slammed her locker shut just as Ayanna approached

"hey y'all" she smiled "Tae whats up with you phone? I was texting you all day yesterday"

"I know. Some stuff came up" Ayanna analyzed her depressed looking friend

"Hun,  what's wrong with you?" Tae hesitated to answer 

"Mo and I broke up yesterday" she whispered

"TF!" Ayanna said loudly causing attention and Tae just walked off towards her class

"Tae wait up" Ayanna followed into the classroom.

Ayanna and Tae took their usual seats in the back.

"are you gonna tell me what happened?"

Tae looked up and swallowed hard "we broke up because he's going to Maryland for school and he doesn't know if he's wants a long distance relationship"

Ayanna's mouth fell open "is he stupid or stupid. That just made me mad like ughh. I'm sure he'll come around though. I'm sure this is hurting him just as much as its hurting you"

"I hope so" she mumbled then put her head down.

Tyler came in and sat down "what's wrong with her?"

"I'll tell you later" Ayanna whispered as she began her work for the day.

Mo moved sluggishly out of his class still trying to wrap his head around everything. 

Tyler came behind him and patted his back "wassup up man"

"nothing" Mo said dryly

"the f*** is wrong with you and Tae. I don't say you gonna tell me later. Someone is gonna tell me now dammit" Tyler slightly pouted 

"we broke up"

"the f*** you just say. How the f*** did that happen?"

"because i'm dumb and I don't know what the next step is after highschool"

"what you mean. We all going to UCLA and we gonna take over" Mo shook his head

"naw, we not because I'm going to Maryland" Tyler looked around confused as hell

"why am I the last to find everything out? And what does Maryland have to do with you and Tae" he thought for a minute "you told her you ain't want a long distance relationship didn't you"

"I implied it"

"are you stupid. You need to think before you speak bruh"

"I know that" the bell rang indicating they were late for their next class "I'll see you later" they dapped each other and walked off.


mad at how Mo just broke up with Tae like that

They need to talk it out but when shes ready and when he's thinking.

Ju is adorable
I really like him
I agree with Charm right now
Run it hun

Naw nigga she aint crying she in that joint doing cartwheels and toe touches!!! She is happy go lucky ..... <strong>HELL f***ING NO</strong>

smh ... dumb niggas i declare

Runnn It :)

Mo knocked on the Cruz' front door. Ava came and opened it "Hey Mo" she smiled.

"hey, uhhh is Shaunte' here? She's not at home" just as he said that Ju came in from the backyard.

Ava looked back "Ju is Shaunte' here?"

"yup" he said looking for a Chinese menu.

"well can you get her. Mo needs to see her"

"nope" he shut the drawer and walked towards them.

"what, why?"

"mom just leave it alone. I need to talk to him" and with that she walked away from the door.

"where is she?" Mo asked looking around the house

"she in the treehouse"

"well let me talk to her"

"no, she doesn't want to talk to you. I told you to make it right and you broke her heart"

"I didn't want to break her heart. I'm just confused on what to do" he ran his hand over his face 

"well be confused at your house and figure it out. This time think long, hard and carefully about what your gonna say and make it right. And when you see her at school tomorrow don't say s*** cus she still ain't gonna talk. Now if you will excuse me I need to mend my bestfriends heart." he tried to close the door but Mo held it open

"she's crying?"

"duh nigga" and he closed the door in his face. 

Ju pulled out his phone and ordered himself some Kung po chicken and Tae some sesame chicken and then went back outside to go inside the treehouse.

"what took you so long?" she said laying on the bed

"ummm Mo was here" she raised up looking alert

"he said he wanted to talk and I told him it wasn't a good time and he should take some time to think"

"okay" she laid back down "can you go get me some clothes for school tomorrow. Preferably sweats"

"sure" Ju got up and headed across the street and knocked on the door.

"hey Julius" Shaun answered the door "Shaunte' isn't here"

"I know, I came to get her some clothes"

"oh, is she sleeping at your house tonight" Ju nodded "if you were any other boy I wouldn't approve but your family" he patted his back

"hey Julius" Linda walked in from outside "where's Shaunte'?"

"my house, she's spending the night" Linda nodded

"okay, why though?"

"ummm...uh Mo and Tae they uhhh" he hesitated "broke up" Linda and Shaun gasped 

"what why?" Linda asked

"I don't really think its my place to say. I'm sure Tae will tell you. Besides if everything goes accordingly they'll be back together by the end of the week" they nodded

"okay" they said still in shock

"umm Tae said she wanted to get her some sweats for tomorrow and some pajama's would be good too"

"okay I'll go pack her bag" Linda headed upstairs to do just that.

"Julius, man to man you would tell me if Maurice ever put his hands on my daughter right?"

"yes, but that wasn't the case at all. And I'd probably try to kill Mo myself"

"good" he patted his back and then Linda came down with Tae's overnight bag and school bag.

"thanks, I'll see y'all tomorrow and please don't worry. Everything is gonna be fine" and he walked out the door.


Thanks lovelies :)

mmhmmm see, Ju and Tae guna end up kickin it just watch.. How dare Mo just not even try.


Run it.

Mo b****'d up smh

*sneaky grin* and now the mess will unfold , hahaha

Mo is annoying me
Stop being a spoilt piece of...
How you gon do that to Tae?!
Dude aint even tried to work on a relationship...
Instead, he goes and says that stupidity to her!
Ju can you please sort your boy out!
He is just getting on my nerves now!
Tae I'm sorry hunny!
Jazz lemme be the fairygodmother so I can have a word with my girl!!!!

Noooo, Tae and Mo cant be over.. And she shouldnt overreact, atleast he was honest. He never said he didnt want to try. I need them back together like yesterday, they make me happy! I think they can work it out and make the distance work.

Noooooooo.! Y mo yyyyy? Lol
But I sympathize wit him. His dream was crushd nd hg as to go to marland. Nd jus as well as ge might he might. Long distance relationships r scary . But ithink they could at least try


"so what!? I don't understand why you would keep that from me. And then you were avoiding me"

"I wasn't trying to avoid you. I was just tryna clear my mind"

"by playing 2k" she said with a straight face

"I don't wanna go that far either but it looks like I don't have a choice"

"and I'm fine with that. I just don't appreciate you telling everyone but me and then you were avoiding me on one of the best nights of our high school careers. I wanted to celebrate with you but you were keeping secrets"

"I wasn't keeping secrets. I was tryna figure this thing out" Mo yelled

"figure what out?" Tae said throwing her hands up

"figure us out" Tae took a step back

"what do you mean figure US out?"

"I'm gonna be so far away." he mumbled

"and we can have a long distance relationship" Tae said a little offended

" we're both gonna be busy with ball so we won't have time for each other. What if it doesn't work?" he whispered

"so what you wanna break up" Tae said keeping her defense up

"I don't know. I just don't want lose you or end up hurting you from a distance"

"you think you're gonna cheat" Tae snapped her neck

Mo remained silent "fine, I'm glad we settled this now and not later" Tae walked past him.

Mo grabbed her arm trying to pull her back "wait" Tae yanked her arm back and kept walking. 

Tae walked up the hill and walked into Julius' front lawn cutting through his bushes to get to the backyard. She climbed the ladder and sat on the bed inside the treehouse. She sat there with a blank expression then texted Ju.

<em> Tree house. Bring tissue</em> 

"what the f***" Ju whispered as he went into the bathroom to grab a roll of toilet paper. 

Ju climbed the latter and walked in sitting right beside her silently as she stared into space. 

"what happened?" Ju asked nervously 

"we broke up" she said dryly

Ju c**ked his head back "the f***! Why?"

"he doesn't know what he wants. He's unsure on if he wants a long distance relationship. He doesn't want to end up hurting me from a distance. He's scared he might cheat on me while out there." she rambled as tears began to form in her eyes.

Ju broke off some tissue and dabbed her wet cheeks. "he's throwing it away before we even have a chance to try. He doesn't even want to try. Why would he even think like that. Is it me" Tae looked at Ju with her eyes red and puffy

"no, no its not you" he brought her into a hug and rubbed her back. "he's just being dumb" he continued to rock her in his arms as she sobbed.

"can we sleep in here tonight?"

"yeah, sure whatever you want" he rubbed her back and continued to wipe her falling tears.

I walked a little down the block to Ju's house and knocked on the door. 
"hey, wassup" he let me in

"nothing much have you talked to Mo?"

"not sense after the game yesterday. I tried calling but he ain't answer"

"he hasn't answered my texts or calls. I'm kinda worried"

"why don't you just go over there" he plopped down on the coach. "he only live around the corner. He can't hide forever."

"fine" Tae turned on her heals and walked out the door. She walked for about 10 minutes till she reached Mo's driveway.

She continued up the driveway to the front door and knocked on it kinda hard. "who that banging on my door" Mel said from the other side swinging the door open. "oh hey Shaunte'" she greeted her with a hug.

"is Mo here? He hasn't been returning my calls"

"he didn't call to congratulate you yesterday" she said shocked


"well he's downstairs" she opened the door to the basement.

Tae smiled and walked downstairs and heard the sound affects from 2K13. She walked quietly behind the couch and smacked him on the back of his neck. 

"man you gonna stop hitting me" he said turning around "oh, hey Tae"

"hey yourself" she walked around the couch and sat down next to him. "what's with you?" she asked simply

"nothing" he turned his attention back to the game.

Shaunte' got up and pulled the tv plug out the wall shutting it off completely

"what the f***!" Mo said irritated 

"stop lying and tell me what's wrong" she stood her ground in front of him

"I'm not going to UCLA" he mumbled

Tae's face fell a little "what? Why?"

"they're not offering enough money. And I got a better offer" Tae sat down beside him

"from where?"

"Maryland" he looked down not wanting to see her face.

Tae hopped up and ran upstairs and out the house.

"s***" Mo said under his breath.

Tae sped walked down the street while texting Ju

<em> court now!</em>

Ju read the text and grabbed a pair of Jordan's and his ball and darted out the house. He waited at the court dribbling around until Tae showed up and snatched the ball out his hand.

"check" she said as they began their game. 

Tae was playing aggressive and was doing all types of tricks and swift movements. At one point Ju was truly dazed and confused.

"you gonna tell me what happened" Ju said out of breath 

Tae put the ball under her arm "he's going to Maryland"

"Ohhh" Ju said quietly not wanting to make eye contact.

Tae noticed and threw the ball at his arm "you knew!"

"I knew they offered him" he said rubbing his arm

"and why didn't he tell me?" she said angrily

"he said he ain't wanna say anything till he knew for sure" Tae shook her head

"if he would have told me before hand I would have been mentally prepared for this" Mo came walking down to the court

"umm well he's right there" Ju pointed behind Tae

"took him long enough" she said with an attitude

"wassup Ju" They dapped each other up

"make this right son. Tae text me later" and with that Ju walked off back to his house . . . .

Thats it..... Cum on jaz

Blahh ! Crybaby

Runn it
