"I'd like to propose a toast to the newest addition to the group, Little Nalia. Who has brought this change to the greatest team in the world among others. Giving up the life we been living for what eight, nine years is hard but the incentives make it much easier for us," Rodney raised his glass as did the rest of the group as he looked down at the baby in Karima's arms, "Reshard,Eryk,Isiah, Karima and Justice damn we made one hell of a team but it is now time for us to enter into a new era of our lives, our late twenties will be filled with tiny footsteps, real careers and marriage. Cheers to a new beginning." They all clinked their glasses together sharing laughter as they looked from one another.
"Can y'all believe we actually giving this s*** up?" Isiah asked takings sip from his glass. "No I thought we'd always be together and running s***. But someone had to have a baby, you just couldn't wait huh, Rima?" Rima held up free hand and flashed her middle finger at Reshard, "I didn't get pregnant by myself." Rodney laughed and made his way over to Rima to take Nalia from her arms, "Alright y'all leave my baby alone. I think this was a sign that we should stop." "Rodney right. Most of the best get brought to their knees because they didn't know when enough was enough. But we were.." "You right but you forgot to say one thing, Eryk." "What's that Jus?" "We're better than the best. We Untouchable." "True s***. You never say much Jus, but you always say just enough," Reshard complimented, "But I'd love to stay and kick it a lil long but I gotta flight to catch tonight and I ain't done packing." "Come on bro. For you to look just like me you always were a party pooper." "Party pooper though, Rod?" Isiah questioned laughing. "I know bro but I got a business meeting in Cali and I gotta be there. Love y'all. See y'all. Stay safe and outta trouble, especially you Rima I know how you get."
After going around giving hugs to the girls and dapping his boys up Reshard left out heading for the front door of Karima and Rodney's house with his hood up; something he always did for precaution. The rest of the group continued to laugh and joke until they heard gun shots ring out from the front of the house and a loud groan they knew came from Reshard.
On impulse Justïcë and Karima, with Nalia in her arms, bolted for the basement to make a quick escape. Eryk, Rodney and Isiah trailed behind them after gabbing things of importance.
