For this story, I took my ideas from an old story and put it into something new, so it's a little from an old story that didnt do too well. I hope you like it.

I sit up in bed and look over at my alarm clock. It read 8:03. Holy s***! I jumped up out of bed and stubbed my big toe against the night stand. “Damn it” I hop over to the foot of the bed and step on a Lego. I huffed. I picked up the Lego and threw it across the room. I grab my outfit from the closet and head to the bathroom. I pull on my panty hose, then my skirt. I put on my undershirt and start to brush my teeth. I turn on the faucet and water sprays me on my shirt. “It’s just water it will dry.” I grab my blouse and heels and go to my daughter’s room to wake her up. “Adrianne, sweetheart time to wake up.” She didn’t answer. “Baby, come on mommy’s running late.” I pull the covers off her bed and her stuffed animals fall to the ground. I sniff wth? Is something burning? I run down stars to see the kitchen a mess. Cereal all over the floor, juice on the counter. The pantry was practically emptied. Two burnt waffles, pop out of the toaster. “Good Morning Mommy. I made breakfast.” My daughter smiled her beautiful smile at me and I couldn’t hold in the tears any longer. She looks so much like her father. “Mommy, don’t cry.” My baby walked over to me and hugged me. The timing couldn’t be any more perfect. My best friend <a href='http://postimg.org/image/6sg71cve1/' target='_blank'><img src='http://s20.postimg.org/6sg71cve1/christina_milian_karrueche_tran1.jpg' border='0' alt="christina milian karrueche tran1" />Tina</a> walked in with breakfast, which included coffee. She also had my niece Violet with her. “Oh, my” She put the bag down and came over to me. “I’m running late, I have to go! I have a meeting with the board of advisors in 20 minutes.” Tina smiled at me. “Go get ready Trese. I’ll take care of Dri and the mess.” “Thanks love” “Uh huh, you have a run in your panty hose boo.” I shook my head while Erina laughed and I ran up stairs to change. I came back down ready to roll. I kissed Adrianne, Violet and Tina. “I love you guys I’m off to work. I have 10 minutes, I called and they are waiting for me.” The kids were giggling and Tina smiled. “What?” She pointed to my hair. I ran to the mirror. Rollers. I laughed; Tina helped me with the rollers. I held my head down and combed my fingers through the curls. I whipped my hair back. Perfect. I added some chap stick. “Okay, now am I good to go?” I twirled around. “Good to go, don’t forget your breakfast.” I grabbed breakfast and high-tailed it out of there.
I made it to the parking garage with a minute to spare. I hurried up to my office. I got to my desk and gathered my report. I walked into the meeting ready to impress.
The meeting went great; they loved my idea to start a summer hire program for high school students, which would guarantee them a spot for internship once they became college students.
“Great Approach in there Gado.” I smiled at the reference to my late husband. I miss him dearly, but being reminded of him and all the good times keep me smiling.
“You got a couple calls this morning; I referred them all to your voice box.”
“Thanks Ron, you are a heaven sent.”
Ronnie smiled and walked away.
I checked my messages.
“Hey, T.T. It’s Jerome. I know things got off on the wrong foot. It’s not that I don’t like kids—“
I hit the delete button. SMH I can’t believe this dude is still bugging. My daughter and I are a package deal, I told him to step now he wants to come around. Boy please. I checked my next few messages. They were all from my girl <a href='http://postimg.org/image/7w0bdbg15/' target='_blank'><img src='http://s20.postimg.org/7w0bdbg15/rt_img_0598_284x426_0.jpg' border='0' alt="rt img 0598 284x426 0" />Draya Michele</a>. My bad girl, she’s trying to get me to go out with her tonight. She even called Tina already and Tina practically told Draya she would have me ready by 9. TGIF! I picked up the phone and dialed Draya’s number.
“s***, I take it you got my messages?”
“Yeah, where you trying to go tonight?”
“Well, I have a date and I need you to double with me.”
“I got you boo, don’t worry. We’ll have a good time. And if not at least we’ll get free dinner and drinks out of it. Right?”
I shook my head this girl is something else, that’s why I love her.
“You need to get out love, I know you miss Gado, but he’d want you to be happy.”
I heard Draya squeal.
“You owe me!”
“We’ll pick you up at 9:30”
“Sit still, I’m almost done.”
I hate getting my hair done by Tina. She takes forever. She’s such a perfectionist.
“There I’m done; get your ungrateful tail out of my chair.”
I rolled my eyes. I went upstairs and threw on a wrap dress with my red jimmy choo heels. <a href='http://postimg.org/image/otzbz5pex/' target='_blank'><img src='http://s20.postimg.org/otzbz5pex/Karrueche_Trans_The_Kill_Launch_Party_HM_x_Margi.jpg' border='0' alt="Karrueche Trans The Kill Launch Party HM x Margi" />I</a> put on a little make up, some perfume and grabbed my clutch. I walked back downstairs just in time for the bell. I opened the door and tried to keep my face from showing my disappointment. Dude wasn’t bad looking I could just tell what he was about by looking at him. He’s got on all this bling, trying to impress me, when he has no clue about me.
“You must be Trese?”
“Yes, I am.”
I stuck out my hand.
“Nice to meet you, I’m Dedric, Are you ready to go?”
“Just a second I’ll be right back.”
I turned around and made a face at Tina, she covered her mouth and I gave my babies a kiss.
Dinner was great, the food was amazing, but as far as conversation goes it was awkward. Draya and her date hit it off great; I was ready to go home. Dedric seemed nice, but I was tired of him talking all about himself. Draya excused us to go to the ladies room. When we got inside she pouted.
“Trese, I know you aren’t having a good time. We’re about to go to some house party, Tremaine said it’s jumping.”
I put on some lip-gloss; Draya opened my dress a little showing some cleavage, so I was pulling it back close when she looked at me. I stopped.
“Fine Draya, you so owe me!”
She swatted my butt and scooted me out of the restroom.
“Change of plans ladies, we’re going to drop Dedric off at home, then head out.”
We got to Dedric’s place and I wasn’t hiding the fact that I wasn’t impressed any more and gave him a casual wave good bye and an “It was nice to meet you.”
“Trese you are a mess.”
“So where is this party?”
“It’s in West Hollywood at my boys crib.”
Draya looked at me at the mention of West Hollywood. I brushed it off. It’s been a while since I’ve been out that way. I’ve just been working and being with my babygirl.
We pull up to this housing complex of condominiums. I could never forget it. Had too many memories here, most that I had tried to put behind me. I wish she would have told me we were coming here. The party seems pretty live, when we walked in Draya and I started dancing. We got it even more live. I hit my dougie one time, everyone was wildin’ but I had to stop. I didn’t want to hurt feelings. Damn, I need a drink.
I walked into the kitchen and poured me some pineapple Malibu and cranberry, as I was turning around this girl bumped into me.. “Excuse you.” She looked at me, giving me the once over and I just rolled my eyes and walked away. “Show Out” came on Draya called me out and yelled “South Dallas Swag”. I started to hit it then I felt someone burning a hole through me but I didn’t stop dancing. Once the song was over Draya and Tremaine came over to me.
“T.T., we’re going to mingle are you coming?”
“Nah, go ahead. I’m good.”
Instead of walking around and mingling I just kept drinking. I stopped when I felt a buzz and tried to get away from the crowd. I walked into the closest room and shut the door. It was nice, not too masculine but definitely not feminine. It smelled amazing. I leaned against the door and closed my eyes. I heard another door shut and I opened my eyes. Oh my gosh, he looked so gorgeous. Just as good as I remember but, so much better. Why did I walk in here? He still didn’t notice I was there and he had sat down on the edge of the bed. I know it isn’t me. I cleared my throat and he hopped up and grabbed his towel tighter around his waist.
“Holy s***! You scared the f*** out of me.”
“I’m going by Tientrese now, but yeah. It’s me.”
He ran a hand down his face.
“How have you been?”
“I had been meaning to look you up.”
I nodded. I had my hand on the door knob, when he walked up to me. He smelled so good. I inhaled his scent and let my head fall back against the door. I could feel tears starting to well up in my eyes. Why did I come here? Chris grabbed my face in his hands. I kept my eyes closed. I could feel his breath against my lips, then he kissed me. It was a slow aching kiss. Like he was familiarizing himself with my lips. I sighed into his mouth. He grabbed my waist and lifted my right leg up and wrapped it around him. What am I doing? I cant do this. Not with him. Not again. He pressed into me and I moaned. I have to go. I brought my leg down and hurried out of the room.
“Hey Draya, I’m going to go home. I had fun love.”
“Trese, don’t go. Stop being anti social.”
“I have to get ready for work.”
“It’s Friday T.T.”
“Well, I’m tired okay, I love you. It was nice meeting you Tremaine.”
“You too Trese.”
I hugged Draya and Tremaine and headed home.
