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.


Maurice's POV

Tyler and I decided to go to Ju's house to chill. I also needed to know if he's seen or heard from Tae because I sure haven't. I thought we were on good terms after the party, but I guess not because she been M.I.A. We rang the doorbell and waited for someone to answer.

"hey guys" Ms. Ava said smiling letting us in.

"is Ju here?" I asked 

"yeah, he's in the treehouse"

Tyler and I looked at each other confused as hell. When did this nigga get a treehouse? We walked through the back doors and down the porch steps and there it was the treehouse.

"I've never noticed that" I said pointing to it

"s***, I don't think I've ever been in his back yard. We're always at the court"

"true s***" I said as we walked up the steps to the treehouse. We opened the door and walked in to see Tae and Ju sleeping. Ju was laying on his back and Tae was all cuddled up next to him. My blood started to boil but I took a deep breath and calmed down because I didn't want to assume. I shook then lightly waiting for them to wake up.

"hey babe" Tae said rubbing her eyes

"Is this why you haven't been returning my calls and texts?" I asked referring to her and Ju all bunned up.

Tae looked at how close she was to Ju and scooted over to the side of the bed. "no, I've just been going through some things"

"the f*** are y'all doing in here!?" Ju said loudly throwing the cover his head 

"the question is the f*** were you doing with Tae?" I said irritated

"what are you talking about?" he said throwing the cover off. "ain't s*** happen we just slept in here because she wanted to"

"it's don't look like y'all were just sleeping"

"nigga you tripping, get the f*** up out my treehouse" Ju said pointing to the door.

"wait let me explain" Tae said getting up "I've been going through some things. I thought my dad was cheating on my mom but he wasn't and......" she stopped

"AND" I said still irritated

"he has Cancer" she said developing tears in her eyes. I hugged her tightly letting her cry on my shoulder. "I came to Ju because I felt like I had no one else. This tree house is like our safe haven" she said in between sobs. 

"I'm sorry" I said still holding her. "I feel like such an a**hole"

"you should" Ju said still laying in the bed

"Ju man I'm sorry"

"you good, don't be coming in my treehouse with that bulls***. This is a no drama zone" he said making Tae laugh

"I love you guys" she said bringing us into a group hug.

Awwwwww i'm sorry that I made y'all cry and super sad.

Thanks for the love ladies!! An add will be coming in hopefully 30min or so

what happened to my comment i left :(
bless Ju's dad
he was a good man
building that treehouse for his son
even told him if he was mad at him
he was allowed to go in that treehouse for space
they are too cute together in that treehouse though
by the way
whats up with Tae and Mo?

:( this is really emotional .... Jazzzy you suck !!!!
The tree house thing was sweet.

Runn It !!!

Dang that's hard when one of your parents have that run it

damn that's not good news
well they'll overcome it

aw po ju :( kids are so
quick to clown people about
their parents being dead
and that's ashamed because
that seriously hurts

like good old times they can
actually hang out with just
the two of them and chill


i love their friendship


I was overwhelmed with emotion and didn't want to stay in the house. I packed my bag and tiptoed out the house to Ju's. I went around to his back yard and sat on the porch and texted him.

<em>Treehouse. Now :'(</em> 

Ju came out back with a bag full of snacks. He didn't ask any questions and lead the way to the <a href="">treehouse</a> that his dad built in the backyard.

We walked up the stairs and inside. I ran my fingers across everything remembering all the fun times we had in there. I remember whenJu said he wanted to cut the tree down when his dad died.

<em>" I don't want this stupid tree! It's worth less, it has no value anymore! I want it gone." he yelled with tears in his eyes, charging the tree with one of his dads saws. Word got out around the neighborhood that his dad died and this kid David tried to make a joke about being mean. Kids are so hurtful. Ju got mad and went on a rampage. He pushed the kid to the ground and started fighting him. That was his first fight and he was winning until I pulled him off and he took off running. "Ju you can't cut down the tree, that's god's tree" I said. "well god tool my dad so I'm going to take his tree" he said trying to cut into it. "where are we gonna hang out? Your dad built it for us! Because we're such cool kids remember? That's what he said Ju. He said if you ever feel sad or mad or just wanna be by yourself you can come here even if your mad at him. So stop it Ju" I said finally taking the saw away from him. Ju dropped down and began crying "I just want my dad back Tae." I let him cry into my lap while I rubbed his back. "you know you gave David a black eye and a bloody nose" Ju's head popped up "really" "yeah, who taught you how to fight like that?" I asked "my dad....right by this tree house"</em>

"what you thinking about?" he asked plopping down on the sofa bed he had in there 

"just our child hood" I said smiling a little "your dad was an amazing architect and carpenter and all around handy man"

"yeah, I know"

"when was the last time you came up here?"

"the night me and Alexis broke up" he said dryly. "so why are we in here? It must be urgent." he asked pulling out a bag of cookies 

"my dad didn't cheat on my mom"

"okay so what's the problem?"

"he has cancer" I said dryly

Ju's mouth fell open in shock "wow, so for the past two months he's been getting treated" I nodded my head 

"well what are you gonna do?"

"I just wanna hang out here for now. Maybe sleep here tonight like old times. Eat junk and watch tv here in the old tree house"

"Okay, I'll get the blankets" he left to go back in the house to get a few blankets and pillows then returned.

They stayed up all night eating junk and watching old movies on the tv Ju's dad hooked up. Tae eventually fell asleep. Ju laid behind her admiring her. He removed the hair from her face and kissed her cheek.

"goodnight best friend" he whispered turning around to lay the opposite way to go to sleep.

that's even worse that's so sad to hear your father
have cancer

Not cancer :/

Run it

aww damn thats even worse.. finding out her father has cancer...she really gonna be stressin now.. damn thats crazy

run it

damn cancer though
Damn pops
I'm sorry
Now that really bout to mess Tae up

Today Lola and I had a gymnastics meet. Lola was amazing. Me on the other hand, I tanked. I didn't stick any of my landing and I fell on my face right off the uneven bars. I wasn't focused at all. My mind kept wandering to my parents conversation. I didn't want a broken family. I don't want Maliyah going back forth to each parent and seeing them date other people. Or worse seeing the mystery women my dad is seeing. Sure my parents are acting happy now but that's probably all an act.

I sat in the car with my headphones in as we drove back to the house. We pulled up to the house and I got out with out saying a word. I walked in and dropped my bag and was about to go up the stairs to my room.

"hey missy I know you didn't do so well today but get your bag, I'm not a maid you know" my mom said

I rolled my eyes and grabbed my bag.

"Tae do you wanna go to the basketball court and play" Maliyah asked excitedly 

"NO, I DON'T " I said with an attitude

"hey, what with you talking to your sister like that?" my dad said holding Maliyah as she was about to cry.

I looked at Liyah and immediately felt bad. I sat down on the bottom step and motioned for to come give me a hug.

"I'm sorry Liyah, I'm not mad at you"

"well who are you mad at because you've had this nasty attitude for a couple of days now" Linda asked

"it's you two" I said still holding on to Maliyah

"us?" they asked confused

"yeah, you. Acting like you're all happy when you're not. You're holding on by a thread"

"and where did you get this idea" Shaun asked

"the other night when I heard you and mom talking about your infidelity issues"

"infidelity!?" they said confused

"yeah, how you've handling your business for the past two months thinking mom wouldn't find out. How could you do that to us. Do you know how much of an impact divorces can have on a child's life. Did you ever think about me or Maliyah when you were with your Mistresses!? Huh!" I screamed as tears developed in my eyes

My parents looked at each other them at us.

"mommy, daddy you're not getting a divorce are you?" Maliyah asked running to him

"no sweety, Shaunte' you heard wrong the other night." he said with sympathetic eyes

"don't try to give me no sob story I'm not 7. I can handle the truth"

"Shaunte' please listen dammit!" he yelled as I jumped back a little 

He took a deep breath and say Maliyah back down next to me. "girls I want you to know that I love you both very much. I would never do anything to hurt you, your mom or this family. I have NEVER nor will I EVER cheat on your mother. We've been together for twenty one years and married for eighteen and she still the only one I have eyes for. What I'm trying to say is that I have Colon Cancer. "

My eyes widened and the word cancer just rang through my head. The big C.

"why are you just now telling us?"

"because I didn't want you to worry, I'm good. I can handle myself." he said  with a reassuring smile.

"and what I was telling your father is that this is something that we should go through together as a family, scary or not" she said rubbing his back.

I stared out into space in disbelief. Was this really happening?

Aww damn daddy!!

*starts singing*im like f*** this s***, I'm out this b****. I'm out this b****

Smh ... This is getting interesting ...

*storms out of post*

Haha I was way ahead of you Toya lol I'm about to do my homework then I'm gonna write another add

I walked in the house tired and about to head to my room. I walked up the stairs and head my mom slightly yelling at my dad. I was curious so I listened at the door.

"Shaun, how could you do something like this to us" 

"I didn't want to hurt y'all baby I'm sorry"

"how long?" Linda asked sternly 

"about two months" he said slightly above a whisper

"so you've been going to handle your business thinking that I wasn't going to find out?" Shaun nodded his head

I didn't want to hear where this conversation was going to go so I peaked my head inside and said goodnight. They gave me a reassuring smile like nothing just happened and said goodnight.

I took a shower, scrubbing the chlorine out my hair and wrapped it in a towel to dry. I put on my pajamas with my hair still in the towel. I laid there thinking. 

<em>what were my parents arguing about? It sounded like they were talking my dad cheating. My mom was really upset. Sigh, what would that do to our family. I'm almost grown so I would be okay but Maliyah would probably crumble and turn into a problem child. NO! That couldn't be has to be something else, it just has to.</em>

I cried myself to sleep that night.

The next morning I woke up and ate a banana. I brushed my teeth three on some sweats and headed to the court before anyone woke up. I was still thinking about my parents and I barely got any sleep. I got to the court and started practicing my free throws. It wasn't much of a practice because I kept missing them. 

"what's wrong with you? You're missing all of your shots"

I turned around and saw Ju. He was always there at the right time.

"I think my dad cheated on my mom"

Ju c**ked his head back "why would he do that? Your mom is fine like the number nine, like a ticket on the dash. Shes a dime. Mann she's just Halle Berry fine" he chuckled a bit

"I heard them kind of arguing last night. It was more of my mom."

"well what we're they saying?" he asked dribbling his ball

"she asked how could he hurt his family like this and how long has it been going on. He said 2 months"

"damn, well why don't you ask them?"

"because they're gonna try to play it off and give me some bulls*** excuse"

"well then you'll never know" he said making a shot

<em> maybe I don't want to know.</em> I thought

*skips in*
