11:06am. Musiq Soulchild's Love played on the radio.
I suddenly woke up and could feel my body in a thick layer of sweat. I felt the tempature of my skin and immediately wiped my face. I laid back in bed as my pillow was covered in sweat. I let out a groan as I rubbed my temples. I looked at the balcony window.
"Damn, it's beautiful outside."
I closed my eyes again and I started to remember everything that I did last night.
"Mutha Goose..." I chuckled to myself.
I sat up again and then it hit me...
"Fuck!" I jumped out of bed and ran into the bathroom. I checked my body for hickies.
"Did I dream this or did this happen in real life?"
I ran back into the bedroom and grabbed my phone. My anxiety slammed through the roof as I tried to remember what happened. I opened the bedroom door and crept downstairs.
"Is anyone home?"
I checked the house and I didn't find anyone. I started to become beside myself as more memories started to come back to me. I felt my body tremble as I became fearful.
I took a deep breath and stared into the mirror. I watched a tear fall from my face. I couldn't get a grip of both my thoughts and emotions. I looked on the dresser and Diggy left me a note.
-Good Morning, Kel. It looks like you were also very drunk last night, so drink plenty of water and here are some pills to take. Before I went to work, I got your favorite remedy. Feel better. Your Diggy♡-
I looked up and became disgusted with myself. I smiled at his note and drank the water. I walked over to my phone and called my mom.
"Hey mom, its me."
"Mikhael? What's wrong?"
My mom and I are very close and she could tell right away. I started to cry as I couldn't believe what I had to tell her.
"I cheated on Demetreus last night."
I felt my knees get weak and I lost my balance.
"Kel? What happened? Why?" She repeated.
I looked down on the ground and I saw my tears make perfect circles against the wooden floors.
My mom was worried, "are you crying? You don't ever cry?"
"I fucked up, mom! Mom, I cheated on him. I lost control last night. This boy just felt good and he was saying the right things. And I wasn't." I started to cough.
My mom tried to calm me down, "Kel, listen to me."
"Mom, they were all throwing themselves at me last night. I kept telling them I wasn't looking for anyone, I had my king."
"Kel, please calm down."
"How can I?" I sat there in silence with my tears as I took deep breaths.
"Mikhael, did you use protection?" My mom muttered.
Then I remember that I didn't and I lost my cool again. I dropped my phone and ran to the bathroom. I threw up. I felt my body limp with exhaustion as I crawled back to my phone, seven minutes later.
"Mom, you still there."
"Ma, I fucked up. I didn't use protection."
"You have to get tested. Atlanta has one of the highest STI populations. Are you going to tell him?"
"Ma, I love that man. I am in love with him."
"I know you do. Do what you think is best."
"I love you, ma."
"Clean yourself up and take a run. You need to figure out how you are going to manage this situation."
"Thank you, ma."
