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="http://paigehurdfansite.yolasite.com/resources/paige7.jpg">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="http://img01.mr-static.com/photo/DiggySimmons/DiggySimmons-01-big.jpg">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="http://www.exposay.com/celebrity-photos/halle-berry-essence-black-women-hollywood-BveNi1.jpg">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="http://www.nowhavefun.com/celebritypictures/d/143494-2/65+Shemar+Moore+photo.jpg">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 Julius...you 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.

Commenti

Yu little shi.. lol just playing but as long as I'm in it :) lol

So I was on my grind this past semester and just neglected all of my stories. I'm sorry but I also have writers block and I feel like this story is dragging on and on. I love it I really do but would ya'll be mad if I just stopped adding to this and started a whole new story??

please don't yell at me lol

I hate Eli...Im sorry I just want Mo and Tae to get back together all ready dammit!

wow i bet eli will turn up in orlando

It takes damn near a week to drive from Cali to Florida. Know one has time for that so they took a plane.

If Eli turns up no good will come of it!!
Mo and Tae going to get they sexy on *wink wink* lol
If they road trippin' how they gettin on a plane!!

Runnn It

I got a feeling Eli gon turn up...

run it sis

"A trip to Florida" Eli said wrapping his arms around Tae

"Yeah, it's gonna be fun"

"For you maybe. I'm gonna be here all alone" he pouted his lips

"It's only for a week. You'll be iight" she pecked his lips

"Who else is going beside you, Ayanna and Ju?"

"Ju's brother and girlfriend, his girl Lola and Mo"

Eli made a stank face "why is Mo going?"

Tae let out an irritated sigh "because he planned the trip and he's out friend"

"I don't trust him" Eli said crossing his arms

Tae faced him "you don't have to trust him. Just trust me" she smiled and pecked his lips once more.

"He better not try nothing or that's his ass"

"He won't he's not like that" Tae said thinking about the kiss from the other day

---------

"So you ain't tell him?" Ayanna asked

"No. I like my life drama free" Tae said putting stuff into her suitcase

"But honesty is the best policy"

"Look Saint Mary, I don't want to go into this with trust issues. The kiss was a mistake and its not gonna happen again. Besides I still gotta tell Mo and Ju that we're together" Tae said zipping up her suitcase

"You really don't have to tell Mo anything. But I understand that we're all friends and he's gonna find out sooner or later"

"Exactly" Tae lifted up her suitcase and began rolling it downstairs next to Ayanna's

"You girls ready to go" Shaun said turning off the Tv

"Yes, daddy" Tae gave a small smile

"Okay, let's get this show on the road"

Shaun took both suitcase and put them in the trunk while the girls got seated. Once Shaun was in the car they drove up the street to Mo's house.

When they pulled up in front of Mo's house they saw him putting suitcases in the his Mom's truck. Shaun moved the girls suitcases to that car and dapped Mo up.

"Hey Mr. Brooks"

"Mo you know you can call me Shaun. You're still my friend" he said chuckling as he walked inside

"Y'all ready?" Mo asked with a goofy smile

"Yeah, quite looking to goofy. You're such a fool" Tae said as they all laughed

They walked inside to see everyone in the living room.

"Hey ladies!" Mel peaked from the kitchen "are y'all hungry?" They nodded their heads and walked to the kitchen

"I made fried chicken, mashed potatoes and green beans. I didn't want y'all going on the plan hungry and that airport food is just so expensive" Mel said as they fixed their plates

"Thank you Mama Mel" Tae said as she and Ayanna kissed her cheek.

They girls went into the living and began eating with everyone else.

"Oh my goodness this is sooooo good" Ayanna said

"See if y'all wasn't always at my house y'all would know about Ms. Mel" Tae said taking another bite

"Yeah, my momma can throw down"

"Yet, your always at my house" Brendan said

"That's because your mom be making all that Puerto Rican food" he rubbed his stomach "I'm tryna be more cultured " he said as everyone laughed

About an hour later everyone got in the car with Mel as she drove them to the airport. Once they got there it took them another hour to get through airport security and to find their gate.

Everyone sat down together making small talk and laughing at people that walked pass.

"When we get to Florida don't be tryna hang with me" Brendan said

"Boy don't nobody wanna be with you. They gonna be having fun on their own" Paris said

"Paris, you must not know I'm the center of their world"

The crew looked at him like he was crazy and then bust out laughing

"Bro you funny" Ju said punching his shoulder.

Just then their flight was called and they lined up to get seated. Everyone was sitting next to each other and relaxed and excited to get going.

"Attention passengers, this is your pilot speaking. Flight D17 to Orlando Florida will be taking off in about 5 minutes"

Road Trip !!!! Road Trip !!!!! Lol
Hehe kissy faces!!
Run it

"Is it me or is this summer boring as f***" Mo asked while concentrating on 2k

"It is though. The girls all got jobs. We ain't been doing s*** foreal but partying. It's getting kinda old"

"I thought I was the only one feeling like this. I wanna go on a road trip or something"

"To where though?"

"Let's go to Florida or something" Mo paused the game for a moment

"We should go to universal studios while we there" Ju suggested

"Iight let's make this happen" Mo dapped him up

--------
Mo, Ju, Ayanna and Tae were out to eat at red robin discussing the trip to Florida

"Florida?" Tae said taking a sip of her milkshake "when?"

"Idk. How soon can y'all take off work?"

"Maurice, we work at a camp. We're needed everyday" Ayanna said

"Yeah, we just can't take off work. We'll probably get fired"

"Shaunte' it's only a summer job and the summer is almost over for us since we gotta go to school early for basketball"

"Yeah, let's live it up" Ju said

"How are we gonna get there Julius? Who's gonna pay for it? Huh? We can't be making spur of the moment decisions like this. It's time to be adults" Tae sat up straight trying to look mature

"We have four years to make adult decisions. Let's got to Florida and be kids for a week and then come back to pack for our next big step. Stop trying to act like you don't wanna go Shaunte'."

Ju put his hand up "excuse me. Why do y'all keep saying everyone's whole names? Two, we already talked to our moms and they talked to your parents and they're down with letting us go. They think we deserve it with our hectic year and all"

Tae let out a long sigh "fine. Let's have it up in Orlando"

"Thank you Shaunte'!" Mo said and Julius did a little dance in his chair.

Mo pulled her into a side hug and pecked her lips. Tae leaned forward and kissed back before snatching herself away.

Tae froze and looked at him with wide eyes with both Ayanna and Ju looking at them

"Ooooooo" Ayanna said sliding down in her chair.

Yeah way too soon :/
I wanted her to be single before mo left for school ;(
Lets see how this will all unfold
Run it

Nooooo tooo soon!!
Tisk tisk

Runnn it!

Thanks for the love ladies :)

Tyler had left for UCLA the next morning and ever since then the days had been passing by slowly.

"Tae I'm ready to start school" Ayanna said in a whiny voice

"I know Ay, you've been telling me for the past week" Tae said putting up art work around the camp site.

"When do we get off?"

"4, the same time everyday" Tae said kinda irritated

"Dang Shaunte' you giving me attitude" Ay put one hand on her hip

"Let me put it this way. You are irritating as f*** with out Tyler" Ay laughed a little bit

"Sorry, I just really miss him. He's been super busy this week with practice, workouts, team meetings, and getting to know his team mates and stuff"

"I know but I'm sure it will get easier"

"Yeah, as soon as we get there. Foreal I just wanna see my baby and start basketball" Ay dapped Tae up

"Man what !!"

"You're one step of the game since your dude works with you"

"He's not my dude"

"Yet!!" Ay made a goofy face

"I like him but am I really ready for another relationship?" Tae put down the art work

"I can't answer that. Only time will tell. Just pace yourself"

"I am. And to be honest I do miss Mo but it seems like all we do is argue now"

"Y'all only argue when it's something about Eli. I've noticed. He's cool when it's just us but as soon as Eli comes around or someone brings him up he gets an attitude. I understand why he's jealous so I think you should be a little bit more sensitive when it comes to his feelings"

"Okay I can do that" Ayanna gave her a hug and smiled just as Eli came in

"Shaunte' are you busy?"

"Uh-"

Ayanna cut her "I can finish this up. Go."

Tae got up and followed Eli out the door. They got outside and stood under a shady tree to block the scorching sun

"Tae I know we've only been on a couple of dates and you just got out of a relationship and I haven't been in one in forever but I like you. I really like you. I think it fate in a way. Like Mo let you go so I can have my try with you. I'm not trying to rush you or anything. We can take our time but it would mean a lot to me if you would be my girl" Tae was stuck for a minute "Tae, what do you say?"

"Yeah, yes" Tae smiled and Eli moved closer to hug her then pecked her lips lightly

"Ewww" a group of kids said as they hid behind a bush

"Get back to your stations" Eli said as the kids ran off in different directions "ima let you get back to work"

Tae walked back into the mess hall to find Ayanna "omg what did he say. What happened"

"He's my boyfriend now" Ayanna looked at her like she was crazy

"Well I'm happy for you and if you need me call me"

"Duhhh you're my bestfriend"

I wonder where he know Eli from ??
I agree I don't see Eli and tae going far
And Eli is right he is a fool letting her go
But I really hope they get back together
Here's my prediction
Tae and Eli gona go out and mo is gona find some dirt on him and Eli gona f*ck up than somehow junior year mo gets a full scholarship to UCLA and tae and mo are just friends than eventually go out
But of course drama here and there lol
Jk! I'm sure you have a better storyboard:)
Run it!

Mo can miss me with all that jealousy lol

Mo need to chill out..
Eli got a c**ky attitude at times ... I dont like it smh

Runnn it!

Mo is super serious about finding some dirt on Eli. But they say ya gut ain't wrong!! I honestly don't see Eli and Tae going too far, he doesn't seem like her type. I hope she and Mo get back together, but maybe that's just wishful thinking. run it!!!

Tae finished making her plate and left Mo and Eli talking.

"What's the girls like at UCLA bruh"

Eli leaned his head back "mannn they're all bad as hell"

"You mess with any of them?"

"A few but nothing too serious. My last real relationship was in highschool but that ended badly" he shook his head

"You went to north ridge right?" Eli nodded his head "I think that says enough. But don't feel bad man I got an ex that cheated on me with damn near the whole school."

"Dang that's tough" he said with wide eyes

They began making their way back to the tables to eat.

Mo continued to carry a conversation with Eli, as well as everyone else, trying to find out as much about Eli as possible.

So far Mo just knew the basics. He's an only child, graduated from NorthRidge, ran track, and he goes to UCLA . But Mo couldn't help but feel like he knew him from somewhere, but he shook the thought for the moment.

Tyler's family and friends were having a great time. And as time winded down he began thanking people for coming and for the money and gifts.

Everyone for the most part was standing around and talking. Mo decided to pull Tae to the side to talk to her.

"Why haven't you told him?"

"Told who what?"

Mo rolled his eyes "Tae don't play dumb. Why haven't you told Eli?"

"I'm going to. I don't understand why you're so concerned about him" she said shifting her weight to one foot

"I'm not. I think it's just kind of fake that you got him around me and he doesn't even know. And he's a cool dude. We could be friends"

"Yeah right. Everyone can tell your jealous"

"This isn't about me. You need to tell him"

"I'm going to tell Eli okay" Tae said with some attitude

"Tell Eli what?" Mo turned around and there stood Eli drinking a coke.

"f***" Tae said under her breath. "Can you excuse us Maurice" Mo walked off leaving them alone.

"Umm I needed to tell you that Mo is my ex boyfriend" Tae said awkwardly

Eli took a sip of his coke "hmm that makes sense"

Tae looked at him confused "how?"

"I caught him looking at you a few times. He looks at you like he loves you. So does Ju, but he's been your friend all your life so that's expected."

Tae felt a little embarrassed "oh. Well I'm sorry for not telling you sooner"

"It's okay. I know you didn't want to make it awkward since all of y'all are close friends" Tae nodded her head

Tyler's family began to leave and Eli was packing up himself up. He dapped tyler and Ju up and hugged the girls goodbye. Then he walked over to Mo and had a private conversation with him.

"Aye man I wanna thank you for making Tae tell me because she should have told me from the jump" he dapped Mo up

"No problem bruh"

"But I just wanna let you know that I'm not threatened by you. I know you still love Tae but I'm here now and I'm gonna take care of her"

"Good. Because if you don't that's your life" Eli chuckled and walked off

He stopped "You're a real fool for letting her go" he said then continued walking over to his car. He kissed Tae on the cheek and then drove off.

Tyler and Ju walked over to Mo "what he say to you?" Tyler asked

"Nothing, f*** that nigga. Just know ima find out where I know him from"

Aww really u gon leave us hanging like that ??!
Run run it
What are they talking bout
And I agree with Brendan and Lola
Run it !

"Lola Bunny!!" Tae and Ayanna shrieked

"Oh my gosh I haven't seen y'all in forever" Lo hugged the both of them

"This damn job keeping us away from the people we love" Ayanna pouted

"Well, we're all here now"

"Yeah, for Tyler's going away party" Tae shook her head

"That is kind of depressing" Lo said as they made there way back to a table with Eli and Julius.

"Hey baby" Lo sat down next to him and kissed his cheek

Tae sat down next to Eli with Ayanna right beside her. "Lola this is Eli. Eli this is Lola, Julius' girlfriend"

"I remember you from that party"

"Yeah, that's me" Eli gave a small smile

"So does --" Ju cut Lo off by grabbing her leg knowing she was gonna ask about Mo

Lo glared at him "come on let's go get some food" Ju got up and pulled Lo with him.

Eli just looked at everyone confused

"Don't ask about Mo. Don't even look at him" Ju said grabbing two plates

"Why not? Doesn't he know?"

"Yeah he knows but Eli doesn't know that Mo is Tae's Ex"

"What the hell" Brendan said behind Ju "why doesn't he know. And when in the hell did they break up?

"Like in March and I don't know she just hasn't gotten around to it"

"s*** well I have a feeling it's gonna come out today"

"Bro don't say anything"

"I'm not nigga. I'm just predicting the future" Brendan walked away back toward Paris.

"But Mo acting all buddy buddy toward dude trying to find out his life story" they began walking back with their plates of food

"This shall be interesting" Lo said taking her seat back at the table

"Where did Tae and Eli go?" Ju asked Ayanna

"Fixing their plate and talking to Mo" Ay pointed out

Momma tmi but that ain't nothing to what my moms be telling me /.\

Why would brendan react like that in front of Eli?? Lol rudeness

Eli trying out her hair was cute!!

Mommy was giving Tae TMI lol. I reacted the same way..
Runnn It!!

It's been two weeks since Eli and Tae's first date. Since then they've been on two more dates.

Today is the day of Tyler's going away party. Tae was getting ready when she received a Skype call from her mom. Tae answered the call and sat down at her desk.

"Heyyy" Tae smiled and waved

"Hi honey, what are you doing?"

"I'm getting ready for Tyler's going away party/cook out"

"He's leaving already?"

"Yeah, he has football training and stuff"

"Oh, okay. Where's your father?"

"He went to the store with Coach T to get some more food and ice for the party. Where's Maliyah?"

"She went to a slumber party last night" Linda looked a little sad

"Aww mom are you lonely"

Linda laughed a little " yes. And I miss your father if you know what I mean"

Tae's jaw dropped "omg mom, ewww too much information. But you should go shopping or something. I mean you are in New York"

"I might just do that. I'm going to let you finish getting ready. See you later" Linda blew a kiss

"By mom. Love you" Tae hung up and exited out of Skype just as there was a knock at the door.

Tae walked downstairs and opened the door for Eli and they both headed back upstairs

"Hm nice room" Eli smirked

Tae looked at him suspiciously "thanks"

"Don't look at me like that. I was just giving a compliment" he chuckled and sat down on her bed

Tae sat down at her vanity and continued straitening her hair.

"Can I try?"

Tae turned her head quickly "try what?"

"What ever you call that" he pointed to the flatiron

"Uh sure" Tae laughed a little "Just take a piece of my frizzy hair, comb it and flat iron it"

"Okay that sounds easy" Eli grabbed the flatiron and grazed his finger against the hot metal part "ahh f*** that s***s hot"

Tae bust out laughing "are you sure you want to do this?"

"Yeah, I got this shawty"

Eli followed the steps that Tae gave him and straightened her hair "aww s*** girl you looking fly" they both laughed

Eli straightened two more pieces "you move too slow" Tae said

"I am a professional" Eli continued straightening her hair

"Let me finish"

"You are having too much fun with this"

"It is. No wonder girls spend hours in the bathroom. Y'all literally transform. I can only imagine what you were looking like before I got here" Tae tried to hit him

"Chill out before I burn you"

Eli finished the last bit of her "you look good. Sashay Shaunte'" he said in his best gay voice

Tae busy out laughing grabbing her purse "boy come on" she grabbed his hand and were out the door.

They walked up the block to Tyler's house and went around back and was immediately greeted by Ayanna.

"It's about time you got here"

"We would have been here sooner but this one wanted to do my hair"

Eli snickered in the back "I'm not even gonna ask. But can you help me out these drinks in the coolers"

Tae and Eli nodded their heads and followed Ay to the porch where the ice and drinks were listed out on the floor.

"When is everyone gonna start arriving?" Eli asked

"His family and a few other friends from school are suppose to be coming at three. It's one now and the guys are still at the grocery store. My mom and Tyler's mom, Mrs. McCoy and Miss Ava are in the kitchen making meatballs, pasta salads, macaroni, corn and stuff like that"

"I wish my mom was here to make some cupcakes"

"Your mom bakes?" Eli asked opening a case of Pepsi

"Yeah, she just opened a bakery actually but my dad's running it while she's away."

"You seem to have the picture perfect life"

Tae shook her head "far from perfect" just then the guys came in loud as hell with a bunch of grocery bags and charcoal.

"Ayeee wassup y'all" Julius yelled throwing his arms up

The guys made their way to the porch and started dapping up Eli and hugging us.

"Wassup man" Mo dapped Eli up last

"Nothing much, just chillin" he answered just as <a href="http://distilleryimage7.s3.amazonaws.com/edee63a8ea4911e1a82b22000a1cd171_6.jpg">he</a> walked in with <a href="http://13img.skins.be/8/7/8/5/8/9/47516-lauren-london-577-122-944lo.jpg">her</a>

"Wassup kiddies" Brendan dapped and hugged everyone "who are you?" He pointed at Eli

Tae shook her head "this is my friend Eli"

Brendan scrunched up his face "friend? Did I miss something?"

"We'll hip you later" Ju said

"Aight, well this is my girl Paris" Paris smiled and waved at everyone as they introduced themselves.

They soon walked away and went to great then men who were working on the grill.

"Ju your brother is crazy" Ay said

Ju shook his head "believe me I know"

Got a feeling things wont be the same wen they go to school

I still don't trust Eli...

They are so cute together but I still miss her and mo together.
