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.


Yaaayyyy !! Daddy cancer gone :)
But he need not be passing out he know he old now. Lol

The recital was sweet. Lol I am mad them two fools bowed to her.

Runnnnn It !!

awww when her father passed out that really scared me, it scared her even came out of no where but im glad the doctor said he didnt see any cancer..he have to watch his eating because he is old, that do make sense. awww ju and maurice being around the family alot is cute.. they love her sister, but i feel as though, they are soon to be fighting for her love.. ju is goin to get more n more jealous n just come out.. n try to get her.. idk we will have to see. up date !!!

Mo and Ju came running in and I met them half way. They embarrassed me in a long tight hug.

"what happened?" they asked at the same time

"we were playing ball and he just fell out"

"was it the cancer?" Mo asked

"I don't know, the doctor said he's fine now but they've been running tests for about an hour"

Just as we made it back over to my mom and Maliyah the doctor came back out.

"hi Mrs.Brooks, we ran the tests and I have some news I want to share with the entire family so if you would" we all followed behind leaving Mo and Ju in the waiting room.

The doctor opened the door to his room seeing that he was up and alert. 

"Daddy!!" Maliyah ran up and hugged him. 

Maliyah climbed up into the bed with my dad and my mom and I sat in two chairs on opposite sides of him.

"okay well it's seems that there isn't any  cancer in your body" our jaws dropped "we ran about five different tests and found nothing"

"then what was it?" my dad asked

"not sure, did you eat enough today and drink water?"

"I had red velvet pancakes for breakfast, a steak and cheese, and a mountain dew"

"that's probably what it was. You need to eat healthier especially if your going to be active and play basketball. You're not a teenager anymore, you can't just eat anything like you use to"

"I understand, thank you" 

"you're welcome, you're free to go"

"I told you you're getting old" I said laughing a bit


Maliyah pranced around the house in her leotard getting ready for her recital tonight. She sat down in between our moms legs practicing her hand motions as my mom put her straitened her into a ballerina bun with her rose crown around her head. My mom went into the kitchen to make her a pregame snack. I went to the stereo and hooked up my iPod and set it to shuffle. I be putting' on by wale blasted through the speakers and Maliyah switched up her dancing from ballet to hiphop.  I began dancing with her to shake any nerves she had. Maliyah can dance! You can see the music move through her. 

"alright, come eat. I don't need you passing out on stage"

We went and ate the fruit salad my mom prepared with some strawberry yogurt. We finished then headed to the dance studio where the performance was held. My mom took Maliyah back stage to get her situated then met me back up front with my dad carrying a bouquet of flowers for Liyah. It was five minutes till show time and Mo and Ju came in looking for us. I waved them over and they sat down next to us both holding a roses.

"here this one is for you" Mo handed me a single red rose and held on to the pink for Maliyah

"thank you" I pecked his cheek

"ewww none of that" Ju said waving his rose in our face

"shhhh the show is starting" my mom said as the lights dimmed and the curtains opened.

All of the little ballerinas steps forward and bowed gracefully before the crowd as we all applauded and the curtain closed. We all waited backstage for Maliyah to come out.

"was it good? How did I do?" she came running out the crowd of people towards us

"you were amazing, which is why I got you these" my dad handed her the bouquet of flowers and she smiled from ear to ear.

"yeah you were amazing" Ju said 

Maliyah gasped "Julius! Maurice! You came"

"of course, anything for the princess" they bowed down and handed her the roses 

"thank you" she said doing a plié 

"check" I passed the ball to my dad. And he passed it back. I dribbled and faked left and went right. I attempted to make a lay up but he blocked it from behind.

"okay old man, you tryna show out today" I chuckled as I guarded him.

"You better respect your elders girl, I taught you everything you know" he dribbled the ball looking right in my eyes.

"oh word you ain't teach me this" I swiftly stole the ball from him and ran up to make a layup. "one, zip"

We played for about an hour and ended on a tied game because we would have played for hours. I began practicing my free throws. 

"see your problem is you don't bend your knees enough. Like this" he took the ball and made a shot

"lilt this" I tried to imitate him but missed

"now you need to move your elbow up a little and execute"

"like this" I shot the ball and made it. "dad?" I turned around and saw him passed out on the floor. 

"dad!!!" I kneeled down shaking him vigorously "Mommm!! Somebody help!!" I yelled out. I pulled out my phone and dialed 911.

After about ten minutes the ambulance had arrived and all my neighbors were outside watching the commotion that was taking place. Mo, Ty and Ju came walking down the street not even aware of who was on the stretcher.

"Yo Tae! What's going on?" Ju asked

"yeah, who you beat up now"

I looked up my face stained with tears "it's my dad" I got into my car and followed the ambulance to the hospital.

I sat in the hospital waiting room when my mom ran in with Maliyah following behind.

She cupped my face "Shaunte' sweetie what happened?"

"I don't know. He was showing me how to perfect my free throws then next thing I know he was passed out on the floor" I said crying as she hugged me tightly 

"everything is gonna okay" she rubbed my back

"the family of Shaun Brooks" a doctor announced 

"right here" my mom raised her hand "I'm his wife

"okay, your husband is fine but we are going to run some tests since he has cancer"

"okay thank you" she shook his hand

"see he's going to be fine" I smiled softly.

Lmaooo hell naw! That nigga scared?
Paranormal Activity is no where near scary, it's stupid if you ask me.
But that was sweet how he stayed with her.
Giving you props Mo!
Don't f*** up! *gives him the evil eye*

Run it


I would not have left. Lol , I am way to scary.
But I'm glad he came back. Timeless moment.

Runnnnn It

aww that was too cute. mo is not that bad.. maybe he really do like her.. n lmao at him being scared of the movie

Maurice's POV

I pulled off and drove to my house. As soon as I got there I realized I left them in the house by themselves. I pulled out of my driveway and drove back to Tae's house. I knocked on the door and I heard Tae running to the door.

"hey, why are you back?" she opened the door wider

"I left you and Liyah here by yourselves. What if someone broke in and killed y'all. I would never be able to live with myself"

"you are so dramatic"

"yeah, but ain't nobody bout to get up in here with me here"

"okay superman" she laughed 

Shaunte's POV

Mo sat down on the couch as I put in paranormal activity 3. The movie began to play as I laid up against Mo. Mo kept jumping behind me and hiding behind pillows because he doesn't like scary movies.

"why would you put this in?" he asked behind the pillow

"it's not even scary" 

"it is sooo, now whenever I hear the wind blow I'm going to think its Toby"

"awww superman is scared" I taunted.

Just then the front door flung open "ahhhhhhhh!!! Toby take her, take Shaunte' Brooks" Mo screamed pushing me off the couch.

"what in the world are y'all doing?" my mom asked walking inside 

"Oh my gosh Ms.Linda don't scare me like that"

"I didn't know I could scare someone by walking into MY house" 

"Tae why are you on the floor" my dad asked closing the front door

"Maurice was trying to sacrifice me to Toby" 

"oh okayyy" my parents said in unison

"that's not even funny"  Mo said helping me up

"well you two keep it down" my dad said 

"I'm actually about to head home now. I was just staying until you returned"

"thanks, good looking out Mo" my dad dapped him up then headed upstairs 

"are you sure you can handle the two minute drive home" I mocked

"yeahhhh" He said mocking me back "give me a kiss in case I don't make it" he poked his lips out.

I pecked his lips twice and hugged him goodbye "text me as soon as you get in the house so I know Toby ain't get you" I said laughing

He walked out and pulled off driving down the street to his house. I went up to my room and got in my bed ready to go to sleep. In exactly two minutes I received a text.

<em> I'm still alive! Love you Tae, goodnight</em>

<em> love you too, goodnight</em> I texted back and fell asleep with a smile on my face. 

That was cute!

But lmaooo that Giant waffle tho.

That was cool !!

I'm happy daddy is doing better :)
liyah is a trip !! She brings me laughs

Why didn't Mo stay with the girls of her parents weren't home yet? Something isn't sitting right with me about that ...

Runnnnn It !!

The Doctors said my dad is doing good and seems that the cancer is disappearing due to the radiation treatment he was doing.  But it can also comeback anytime and maybe stronger. But since my dad treated it so soon, he should be good.

"what do my girls want to do today?" my dad asked as we drove down the road to our house.

"I was thinking I could take Maliyah to the carnival later on and you guys could have some alone time."

My mom looked back at me in aww "Shaunte' that is so sweet of you, that would be amazing" she kissed his cheek

"yayyy!! We're going to the Carnival" Maliyah yelled excitedly.

Around five Mo came and picked Maliyah and I up to go to the carnival.  We arrived and go in line to get our wristbands to go on every ride. We went through the gate and was greeted by the rest of the crew. 

"hey y'all" Maliyah sang

"hey Liyah" they sang back

"can we get on the carousel!" she pointed behind us

We all started walking in the direction of the carousel. We got on choosing our horses and rode for about three minutes. Next we got on the bumper cars. The guys were cheating of course by boxing us in not moving. After that we went on the <a href="">topple tower</a>. Everyone was scared out of their minds because it felt like it was gonna break any second. 

After the topple tower we all went to get something to eat. We all got chicken tenders and fries since I thought that was the safest thing to eat. After we were finished I got Maliyah some cotton candy and myself a giant waffle. Mo caught me slipping and snapped this <a href="">picture.</a> 

"that was not a pretty picture" he said laughing 

"delete it" I jumped up trying to grab his phone 

"no it's for my personal collection"

"eww nigga don't nobody wanna hear that" Tyler said as we all laughed.

Maliyah waved her cotton candy in the air like a wand "Prince Maurice would you like some" she bowed down

"why yes Princess Maliyah I would" he took a piece and popped it into his mouth

"if he's a prince then what am I? Ju asked 

"ummm....your my trusty unicorn Julius" she jumped into his back "to the games" she pointed in the air with her free hand 

"your sister is a trip" Ayanna said 

"don't I know it" we all walked toward the game stations. 

The guys started playin games trying to win us all prizes. Maliyah was the first one to get something. Ju won her a giant stuffed <a href="">unicorn</a>. Mo won me a stuffed Monkey. Lola got a giant spongebob and Ay got a pink stuffed dog.

The last ride of the night was the ferris wheel. Mo and I sat in the cart alone since Maliyah wanted to sit with her unicorn. 

"you having fun?" he asked putting his arm around me

"yeah, I'm just glad Maliyah is having a good time" I pecked his cheek

We looked out the window staring at the view "this view is amazing" I said 

"yeah, like you"

"stop being so cheesy" I nudged him laughing 

"okay, you're my rock like a basketball" a look of confusion appeared on my face

"what?" I questioned laughing "just stop" I shook my head 

We got off the ferris wheel then made our way to the exit. Maliyah passed out as soon as we closed the car door, snuggled up to her unicorn. We pulled up into our driveway and Mo carried Maliyah to the house. I unlocked the door to the quiet house. My parents were still out. I lead Mo to Maliyah's room so he could lay her down. We walked back downstairs so I could let him out. 

I opened the door and he turned towards me kissing the crown of my head "good night" he hugged me tightly.

"good night" I watched him pull off and closed the door behind me. 

I like Ju now. But Mo, it's just something about him. When he let his ex kiss him on his check in front of Tae and he ain't say nothing, that's when I got skeptical. Then when he was at that pool party talking to them hoes in the pool then he talkin' about some "I was watching you watching me the whole time" nigga STOP LYIN! You know damn well you ain't look at Tae.

Buncha Lyin ass niggas

I just don't trust Mo like I used to

Just saying.

Run it

awwww my squirrels are back together
Hey I'm up for the sleepover in the treehouse
Mo aint ready for that yet!!

Tae and I laid in my room in silence. I didn't know what to do or say to make her feel better, I just wanted to be there for her. 

"babe?" I played in her hair.

She turned over a little looking at me "yeah"

"what can I do to make you feel better?" she shrugged 

"look babe you can't keep mopping around like he's dead or something, That's not healthy. You have to be there for your dad through whatever." I sighed deeply "my grandfather died of lung cancer five years ago and he didn't tell anyone or go to any doctors because he hated hospitals. Grandma D blamed herself for so long because she didn't see the signs but no one did. You have to be strong. The stronger you are the stronger he'll get" I kissed her forehead

"thank you for sharing that with me" she smiled shyly and sat up. Tae hugged me tightly and buried her face in the side of me neck. "I love you"

My eyes widened in disbelief. I pulled back and looked at her in her eyes "I love you too Shaunte'" I pecked her lips and hugged her back. I got up and put on my shoes and grabbed my SnapBack "let's go you need to do something fun"

"where are we going?" she asked skidding into her vans.

"you'll see" I grabbed my keys and we left out the house.

Shaunte's POV

After about ten minutes we pulled up at a go kart track.

"you wanna race me"

"you're not gonna beat me, I've been coming here since I was 7" we got in line to buy tickets

"awww your not gonna let me win my first time around" I pouted my lip

"I don't know yet, I might" 

We got into our karts and buckled up. Mo was in his kart grinning and laughing. Red, yellow, green, GO!! The man waved the flag and everyone sped off. After about three laps the race was over. Mo won every single time. 

"told you I was gonna beat you"

"yeah, yeah whatever" I pushed him playfully.  

We walked over to the concession stand. We ordered two hotdogs and some chilli fries to share and a large pink lemonade with two straws.

"you having fun?" he took a huge bite out of his hotdog

"yeah I needed this" 

"I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. No more sleeping in tree houses"

I chuckled "that treehouse use to be the place back in the day. If it was big enough I would wanna have a sleepover for the crew in there"

No laughed hysterically "you wild"

"what? That would be fun"

"in a treehouse though, that's crazy"

"I'm just saying" I put a few fries in my mouth

"aye that just gave me an idea though" he ate a few fries

A drank a swig of lemonade "what?"

"I should have a pajama party, like in house party. That would be hot" he said excitedly 

"yeah that would be dope"

He leaned back in his seat with his hands behind his head "ima have right before we go back to school. Everyone's gonna be talking about it on the first day"

"well we have two more months left, so let's just enjoy each other until then"

"as always" he leaned over and pecked my lips
