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 done left. I feel so incomplete knowing the whole crew not together man.

Runn It.

The next morning everyone got up around 7 all groggy and tired from the previous night to see Mo off to the airport.

"Mo did you print out your tickets!" Mel yelled from upstairs.

<Em>Why on earth is she yelling</em> he thought "I'm doing it now"

Ju helped being down some of Mo's stuff for his mom and put it in the trunk of her range rover.

Once everything was in the truck. Mo grabbed his plane ticket and got into the truck with everyone else and drove off to LAX

Within 45 minutes they were pulling up to the airport and unpacking the truck. Mel went to check his bags in while Mo said goodbye to everyone.

"Bro ima miss you" Ayanna said she gave him a hug

"Ima miss you too Tadowww" he said extra animated causing her to laugh

"Ju I'll see you on the court" they dapped each other up

"That we will. And just get ready to take this beating"

"Man whatever"

Mo then turned to Lola "sis I'll see you soon since you'll be at Howard"

"That you will" she smiled giving him a hug

Mo then turned to <a href="">Shaunte'</a> "come here big head" he pulled her into him and look a few steps away from the group " you gonna miss me?"

"Of course I'm gonna miss your monkey ass"

"We'll just remember that I'm one phone call away "

"I know, be safe out there and keep your eye on the prize. Don't lose sight of yourself"

<em>I'm already looking at a prize</em> he thought "I won't" and gave her a nice long hug and then noticed his mom coming over

"Come here Ma" he opened his arms to her and hugged her

"Baby I just want you to know that I'm am so proud of you and I know that you'll do great things in Maryland" she sniffling a bit

"Are you crying?" He pulled her back to look at her face

"Of course I am. I'm losing my only child to college and I'm gonna miss my baby" she said continuing to hug him

"Ma I'm gonna miss my flight"

"Oh yeah, you better get going. Have a safe flight" she said then giving him a kiss on the cheek.

Mo hugged everyone one last time then proceeded to walk into the airport and find his flight.

Once he got there his flight was just being called to board. After about a hour everyone was on the plane and ready to take off. The plane soon took off into the air and sunny California was now nothing but a little spec looking down from the sky.

Tae and Ayanna got out of their family cars staring at their home for the year with the exception of breaks of course.

"Come on girls lets get this stuff inside" Shaun said getting some of Tae's things out the car

Everyone grabbed a bag or box and headed inside to the second floor, room 234.

After about an hour of moving everything in and slight unpacking. The girls had their first team meeting in about 20 minutes. They said goodbye to their parents and got mentally prepared to meet their team mates and coaches. . .

Everyone's back from Florida, with their families going back to their normal routines and beginning to pack for school. Eli was over Tae's house almost everyday helping her pack and getting to know her parents more now that her mom and sister Maliyah were back from New York.

"So you're a sophomore" Linda said "so that means you'll be taking care of my princess while she's out of my sight"

Eli nodded his "of course, she'll always be in good hands when she's with me"

"I hope or I'll break your hands" Shaun said chuckling a bit

"Shaun stop trying to scare him" Linda hit her husband playfully

"It's okay, I know he's just protecting his own. I'll do the same when I have my own kids"

"See honey it's a man thing"

"Tae are you almost done packing?" Linda asked

"Yeah, just about"

"I can't believe your leaving for college this weekend" Linda almost teared up

"Mom will you stop crying. You've been crying all week."

"I'm just so proud of you" she said pulling her daughter into a hug

"You, Julius and Ayanna are all moving in the same day right?" Eli asked and Shaunte nodded her head "that's gonna be fun wish I moving in the same day."

"Not really we'll be going to practice most of the time"

"And you'll be working hard on and off the court" Shaun said sternly

"When is Mo leaving for school?" Maliyah finally looked up from her coloring book

"Uh he's leaving tomorrow actually"

"That's one whole day away. We have to hang out before he leaves" Maliyah hopped pleading

"You will don't you worry" Tae said trying to shut her up about Mo while Eli is there

Eli had left a few hours later and Tae and her family began to get dressed for a family dinner at Mo's house since he was leaving the very next day.

Once everyone was ready they headed on over. When they walked inside Lo, Julius and his family as well as Ayanna were already there.

"Mo Mo !!" Maliyah yelled while running into his arms

"Wassup Princess Maliyah" he said scooping her into his arms

"I can't believe you're leaving tomorrow and no one told me. I thought we were friends"

"You are my friend. You were just in New York so I never got a chance to tell you"

"Oh okay" liyah smiled sweetly "oh and just so you know I like you more than that Eli guy " she whispered

"You better like me better" Mo said now tickling her

Everyone soon gathered around the long dinner table that was usually only used for thanksgiving dinner. Everyone bowed their heads and closed their eyes as Mel said a special prayer over the meal and her son so that he'll have safe travels tomorrow. Once everyone dug into the meal Mel started sharing random stories about Mo when he was a child and how he met Ju and Tyler, memorable basketball moments and things of that nature.

"Remember your first football practice" Mel said

"That was also my last" Mo said laughing

"You were crying the whole practice"

"Chill ma, I wasn't crying they were just too ruff"

"That's football boy" Tracy, Ava's fiancé said

"Coming from the basketball coach" Eli said laughing

"Hey when are you two getting married?" Linda asked curiously

"We're planning a spring wedding" Ava said proudly

When the dinner was over all of the adults left and the crew was left talking in the living room.

"This is all too surreal" Ayanna said staring at the ceiling "you're really going to UMD tomorrow"

"Yup, I'm gonna miss y'all" Mo said "especially my main mans.....Maliyah"

Ju straight faced him cus he just knew he was gonna say his name and everyone started to laugh

"Forget y'all we all know he gonna miss me more than all of y'all"

"Y'all bromance is a little too deep for me" Lo said laughing

"<a href="">Lo</a> you might lose your boyfriend to Mo"

Mo put on his best girl voice "it's not my fault your man want me sweety" he flipped his imaginary hair

"We should all just sleep over here and go with you to the air port tomorrow" Tae suggested

"It's cool with me"

Ju, Ay, and Tae went back to their houses to get something to wear. Tae brought some clothes for Lo and they all got changed and made a huge pallet in the middle of Mo's living room.

"No freaky stuff you two" Mo said pointing at Julius and Lola

"We ain't damn nigga" <a href="">Ju</a> said as everyone laughed

The rest of the night they stayed up and talked, played random games and snacked on junk food until they fell asleep

Tae still has feeling for Mo
ugh she should just get with him
but then the long distance thing
ahh i dunno
run it!

Awww Mo is the Man!!! I love the way he handle that real adult like.I hope Tae listen's to him and Ju.
Run It!!!

Tae got to learn on her on how eli is jus hope she dnt gt hurt run it

smh ... why can't Tae see it? Mo not just saying he don't trust dude cause he jealous or whatever. Eli has some kind of issues... well i think he does.

Run it

The rest of the night was pretty quiet due to Tae's unexpected news. Mo didn't talk to anyone and had his head phones in for the rest of the night.

Lo and Ay were in the room watching tv while Tae and Ju were talking outside the hotel.

"I'm not mad that you with him I'm just upset that you ain't tell me. Did you think I was gonna run and tell Mo ?"

"No" Tae said with her head down "I just didn't want to tell y'all before the trip because I knew there would be tension" she sighed deeply "Now Mo is mad at me"

"If you care that much about how Mo feels maybe you shouldn't be with Eli" Ju said truthfully

"I want to be with Eli or I wouldn't have said yes. I just don't like the tension between me and Mo because at the end of the day we're still friends and we're gonna be around each other"

"Not for long since we'll all be leaving for school next weekend and Mo will be all the way in the east coast" Ju turned to go inside the hotel "it's your life and your relationship Tae be careful with your decisions" Ju said lastly as he went inside

"What does that even mean?" Tae said out loud to herself.

Tae called Eli back and talked for a bit. When he asked about what happened she down played it as Eli just being funny. After talking for an hour they ended the call and Tae headed back inside to get ready for bed.

The next morning everyone got ready to go shopping at the nearest outlet mall. With tension still in the air everyone sort of went their own way and agreed to meet up in the food court in a few hours.

"Girl why you stressing?" Ayanna asked Tae

She shook her head "I don't even know. I just feel bad I guess"

"For what it's your relationship. If you want to keep it between you in Eli then that's okay. Let's not forget Mo broke up with you. This wouldn't have happened if he wasn't so dumb"

"I guess your right"

"So perk up and get ready to shop till we drop. Starting with Forever21"

Ayanna pulled Tae's arm over in that direction and went crazy because they were having a sale.

"50% off all new arrivals. prayers have been answered" Ayanna said holding her hands together to thank God.

"Will you come on" Tae pulled her into the store and started look through items

After making their purchase in forever 21 they went over to the polo store.

"Help me find something for Tyler" Ayanna started looking through some shirts. "He likes basic stuff, nothing too flashy or anything anyone else is gonna have"

"Mmkay" Tae said paying her no attention, trying to find something for herself

"Tae....Tae...Tae.....Shaunte'!!" Ayanna shook her to get her attention

"What!?" Tae said looking up from the clothes she was looking at

"Maurice just walked in" Tae sighed and began to walk over in his direction

Tae stood behind his large body and tapped his shoulder causing him to turn around "wassup" he said turning back to the rack of clothes

"Uh, you okay?" Tae asked to the side of him so she could see his face

"Yeah, I'm fine. Are you okay?" He asked in a sarcastic kind of tone

"Yeah..." She shook her head "see you later" she said as she was about to walk off

"Tae..." Mo grabbed her hand and pulled her back "look, don't worry about me or my feelings. Just do you like you've been doing, I'll eventually get over it. And I'm not mad at you I just don't trust that nigga but that's not my problem I guess" he pulled into a hug "I'll always love you and you know that, I ain't going no where " he then kissed her forehead

"Come on let's go get some food" Tae said trying to distract herself from tearing up

"Iight let me buy this stuff first" Mo said about to head over to the line

oh no!!! poor it!!!

Tae was up early the next morning talking to Eli in the bathroom so she wouldn't wake her friends.

"Why are you acting so pressed?" She asked aggravated

"Why are you acting to nonchalant?" <a href="">Eli</a> responded

"I told you I would call you before I went to sleep. We went swimming when we got to the hotel. Why are you tripping? I still called you. And I called your ole over protective ass when I woke up because I knew you were mad. So again why are you tripping?"

Eli sighed in defeat "I don't know, I'm sorry. I just miss you" he smirked

"Yeah, whatever cornball " Tae giggled

"So what y'all getting into today?"

"I don't know. I think we're gonna go to Disney world or something today"

"Oh true that sounds cool" someone began to bang on the bathroom door

"I gotta go. I guess everyone is waking up now"

"Iight bye babe" Eli blew a kiss

Tae started laughing "bye cornball" and hung up the phone while she unlocked the bathroom door.

Ju bum rushed her and whipped out his junk to take a leak "ewww Ju " Tae covered her eyes

"Wtf were you doing, Taking a s***?" He continued to pee

"Omg I can't believe you just did that, my virgin eyes"

Ju laughed "we all know damn well you are not a virgin" while washing his hands Tae threw a pillow at his head

"Will y'all shut up?"Mo said stretching out on the pull out couch

"You need to shut up with that hot ass breath of yours" Ay said walking into the bathroom and Mo held his middle finger up at her.

"So what are we doing today?" Tae asked

"We're going to universal studios to have great fun" Ayanna said happily

After about an hour and a half of getting ready the crew went to get breakfast and then went on their way to universal studios leaving Brendan and Skye behind to do their own thing and then meet up with them.

"So what part of the park are we going to first? The movie part or the actual ride part of the park?"

"Let's get on some rides first" Lo suggested "and then when it's starts to get dark we can go over there and wind down"

"We'll let's go" Mo said beginning to walk ahead of us. He loves roller coasters"

The first thing we saw was the the hulk roller coaster. We had flash passes so we went straight to the front and got on. <a href=
"">Mo</a> was too hype for his own good. We got buckled in and the ride took off in a series of loops and turns.

After that they got on two more roller coasters and then they made their way to whoville and got on a bunch of silly kid rides.

There crew was laughing uncontrollably as they got on this cat and the hat ride for the third time.

"After this lets get something to eat. I'm starving" Ju said

Everyone agreed and soon the ride was over. They went into one of the park buffets and sat down to eat.

"Aye that little dr.seuss ride was better than the hulk" <a href="">Ay</a> said half way serious

"Like s*** though" Mo said laughing

"This food is too bomb" Lola said in between bites

"Damn girl slow down" Ju said laughing at his girl

"Lo eating like she ain't eat at years" Tae said taking a bite of mashed potatoes

"Y'all can suck it" Lo said with her mouth full

"Aye Ju where Brendan and Paris?" Tae asked

"I don't know, probably somewhere f***in" Ju said with his mouth full

"I heard that little nigga" Brendan said sitting down at the table with Paris by his side "so did the kiddies have fun today " he said pinching Ayanna's cheek as she straight faced him

"Yeah we had fun, did y'all ?" Mo asked

"Yeah, whoville is so cute and fun" Paris cooed

"Right!" The crew said in unison

Just then Tae's phone started ringing on the table. Brendan snatched it off the table

"oh guys look who it is, it's Eli " he said in his best girl impression

Eli answered the phone and put it on speaker and held it in Tae's face so she could speak "heyyy" she said real loud

Everyone was laughing as Brendan continued to dangle the phone in her face "how's my girlfriend doing today? Did you have fun?" Brendan, Maurice and Julius all looked at Tae extremely confused

"What the hell he mean girlfriend?" Ju asked loud enough for Eli to hear on the other end

"What's going on?" Eli asked

"Uh I'm gonna call you back" Tae said as Brendan hung up the phone and the guys continued to stare at her wanting answers

Tae leaned back in her seat "He's my boyfriend"

Mo got up from his chair and made a quick exit out the door

"This is gonna be some vacation" Brendan said picking food from Tae's plate as she glared at him

Thank you to all of my new readers. I'm sorry it took so long for me to add but i'm back cus I really want to finish this story, it's my baby lol.

aww mo get ya girl!
sorry ole dude eli but tae heart is taken

"Bae I miss you" Ayanna said into the camera on her phone followed by some kissing noises

Mo gave her the strangest look as he walked into the room.

"Don't judge me Maurice, I miss my baby"

Mo threw his hands up "I understand" he said walking into the bathroom to take a shower.

Mo washed up and threw on his basketball shorts and walked back into the room to still see Ayanna talking to Tyler.

"Aye wassup Ty!! How's football at UCLA?" Maurice said out loud

"Brutal, niggas out here getting hazed"

"They tied my baby to the goal post " Ay said

Mo bust out laughing "dang girl ain't nobody tell you to tell my business like that"

"Oh man wait till I tell the crew this one " Mo continued to laugh

Ay and Ty continued to talk and boo love over the phone while Maurice watched tv. While laying there Tae's phone was blowing up. Mo finally decided to look through her bag to find it since he figured it was her parents checking in on her.

Once the phone was found he saw three texts and two missed calls from Eli.

"Boy I know you are not going through Tae's bag and phone"

"I know you heard her phone ringing. I thought it was her parents but its that nigga Eli" Mo said a little irritated

"What's your beef with him anyway? You don't want Tae to be happy"

"Of course I want Tae to be happy but something about that guy rubs me the wrong way. And I feel like by the time I realize it's gonna be to late"

"Mo just relax. If she's making a mistake then let her. It's only so much you can do and when the time comes just be there for her, okay"

"Okay, sis. I'm about to go to sleep, I'm beat" Mo said setting up the pullout couch.

Just then Tae, Lola and Ju walked in ready to shower and call it a night.

The crew arrived at their <a href="">hotel</a> with their mouths wide open.

"This place is huge" Paris said

"It's amazing" Lola said with her eyes wide looking in every direction

"Will y'all come on so we can check in" Tae said

Everyone grabbed their bags and headed for the check in desk. They got their room keys and the bellman grabbed their bags to help take up to the suit. They walked in to the<a href=""> room</a>
They all plopped on the beds simultaneously.

" this bed feels too good" Tae said closing her eyes

"Well now that y'all got your room we're going to go find ours" Brendan said as he left the room with Paris.

Ayanna sat up "first things first..." She got everyone's attention "who's sleeping on the couch?"

"Y'all can sort that out cus y'all already now I'm sleeping with my baby" Ju said kissing Lola on the cheek repeatedly

Mo, Tae and Ayanna all looked at each other for a minute "fine I got the couch" Mo threw his hands up

"Now that that's settled, y'all wanna go night swimming?" Lo suggested

Ayanna hopped up excitedly "yeah I'm with it"

"My bathing suit is at the bottom of my suitcase" Tae groaned walking over to it and unzipping it.

"Girl stop your crying so we can relax" Lola said going into the bathroom with her bathing suit

Everyone changed and kinda dragged themselves down the hall to the elevator. One down stairs and by the pool they dropped their towels and dove in.

The crew just played around dunking each other. After a while Lo and Ju were bunned up. Tae and Ay were talking while Mo just floated around.

"Girl I'm about to go call my boo" Ayanna said getting out of the pool

"Iight girl, send Tyler my love" Tae said

Mo watched them and realized Ay was leaving and decided to go talk to Tae

"Where she going?" He asked

"To call Tyler" Mo nodded his head "why you not going with her?"

Tae looked at him confused "what you mean?"

"Don't you got a little joint?" Mo asked curiously

"Oh yeah, Eli. I told him I would call him before I went to bed" she says relieved thinking he knew that her and Eli made it official

"Oh true, well I'm about to head back in" he said kinda irritated

"Can't stand that nigga" Mo mumbled under his breath as he got out. Tae acted like she didn't hear him and continued to relax
