”When I was young me and my mama had beef
Seventeen years old kicked out on the streets
Though back at the time, I never thought I'd see her face
Ain't a woman alive that could take my mama's place
Suspended from school; and scared to go home,
I was a fool with the big boys, breakin all the rules
I shed tears with my baby sister
Over the years we was poorer than the other little kids.”
I had just got done brushing my hair when my twin sister, Asia knocked on the door. ”Wassup beautiful?” I asked as I turned off the music, she chuckled, letting herself in and sat on my bed. ”Nah s***, handsome. You ready for school? I can't begin the year late. Miyah needs a ride too.” I nodded and grabbed my last chain just as Miyah showed up. ”Speaking of the devil. You got your s*** together? I'm not about to speed back to the house because you done forgot something.” She rolled her eyes at me. ”You better be worrying about speeding to the hospital after your neck breaks from all them damn chains.” I smacked my lips. ”My neck ain't gon break smartass. Now get to stepping.” I ordered. ”Nigga you ain't my damn daddy.” Asia scrunched her face up at me. ”I know, you would look way more prettier if I was your daddy.” I joked earning a chuckle from Miyah. ”Whatever. Lets go!” She yelled, rushing us. She never liked to be late. EVER.
I hated being late, unless it was fashionably late, then I had no excuse. I turned up the music as ”Face Down” by Meek Mill blared through the speakers. ”Face down. Ass up. Thats the way we like to f***. Got some hoes in this house tryna f***. Got some hoes in this house tryna f***.” I rapped along. I looked over at Pharrell and he was bobbing his head as he quickly whipped into a parking space. ”Okay, today we will act like civilized people and you two will work hard and show out in all your classes, kapeesh?” We both nodded our heads and he smiled. ”I can keep my eyes on you Asia because I'm in all your classes, but you Miyah. I hear one negative thing and it's me and you.” She rolled her eyes. ”Kay dad. Bye love you guys.” She gave us both hugs before walking to a group of her friends. We were all popular kids. In and out of school.
I like how I got popular in school. I am a basketball star, I get perfect grades, but I hung out with the wrong crowd at times. But this crowd had my back at all times. ”Asia!” My bestrfriend, Dany, yelled. ”b****!” I yelled opening my arms wide. She ran into them and hugged onto me for dear life. ”Where's my boyfriend at?” I asked referring to HER boyfriend, Miles. ”I don't even know. I think he was looking for Pharrell.” I shook my head. ”You're a terrible girlfriend, you know that?” I joked causing her to laugh. ”Girlfriend!” I turned to see Miles walking my way. ”Boyfriend!” I yelled back, running to him and hugging him. ”I would've thought you two were the couple not us.” We rolled our eyes at Dany. ”Come on boo, lets leave this loser and get to class.” I said playfully mushing her face. ”Uh heffa!” She jumped on my back and I took off running to our class.
”Wassup youngin'?” I said to my cousin Tez. ”Not s***, G. I'm just ready for the day to be over with. A nigga tired as hell.” He yawned and I laughed sitting next to him. If I wasn' t with Dany, Miles, or Pharrell. I was with this nigga getting in trouble. I looked at the empty six seats across from us until Dany, Miles, and Pharrell took three. At my school we didn't have rows, we had groups. Eight people to a table. So it was me, Tez, Pharrell, Dany, and my other friends Dee and Jay. They were brothers and sisters, just like Pharrell and I. They came in the classroom being loud and obnoxious. ”Aye! Shut the f*** up and sit down.” I yelled they looked at me and laughed. ”Girl, leave me and bro alone.” Jay said coming up to hug me. ”Wassup with this extra seat? It's all lonely and s***.” Pharrell said staring at the last chair. ”I wonder who is gonna sit there. I mean the crew.is right here.” A couple minutes passed and a real cute light skinned dude came in. His dress game was on point and so were his tattoos. Everybody in this crew had a tattoo addiction. Dee and Jay had fewer than everybody, but they still had a lot. ”Who that be?” Jay asked me. ”I don't know. What about you Dany?” Dany looked at him for a minute and called Snoop to the table. This nigga had tabs on every motherf***a in this school. Even the teachers. ”Who is that?” She asked him. ”Oh him, that's Chris Brown. He and his younger brother Michael, or Tyga, moved here all the way from Virginia in the Summer.” I raised my eyebrow. ”All that way? s***, I'm glad they came. I finally can have some eye candy.” Jay said. All of a sudden he looked our way and I locked eyes with him. It was like a shock went through my body causing me to squirm in my seat. ”Aye! Here he come. Thanks Snoop.” We all began acting cool, but watched his every move.
He sat down right in the empty seat next to me. His scent alone gave me chills. ”Hey. I'm Chris.” He held out his hand for me to shake. ”I'm Asia. This is my brother Pharrell. Over there is Tez, Dany, Miles, Dee, and Jay. Welcome to the Blue Group.” I said in a sarcastically enthusiastic way. He chuckled and gave everybody a head nod. ”Ms. Jones, will you show Mr. Brown here to all the classes he needs to go to. Isn't it a coincidence that you two have the same classes.” Mrs. Townsend laughed. I smiled and nodded. ”Okay class. I am Mrs. Townsend. Some of you know me better than others and some, well. You don't know me at all. So, I'm going to ask all of you to stand. Give your first and last name, fave sport, and fave hobby. Starting with the Blue table. Go!” This wasn't new at all to us. We all had the same intrest. ”I'm Asia Jones. I am in love with basketball. And my favorite hobby is to get a tattoo, but it has to have meaning like all of them.” Everybody at out group said the same thing so we just zoned in and out on each other. But when Chris stood up all eyes were on him. ”Uh, I'm Chris Brown. Basketball is my favorite sport-” ”I love the way they dribble up and down the court!” Tez's silly ass interrupted him. We all laughed until Mrs. Townsend gave us the eye and we gave our undivided attention to Chris. ”Yeah, oh and I like to sing and dance too.” All the girls in the class made unnecessary ”awws and oohs” I just rolled my eyes. ”Thirsty ass hoes.” I mumbled earning a chuckle from Chris. I smiled at him and he smiled at me showing his dimples. Maybe I don't want this year to go by too fast after all.
