Chrisette Michele's Charades played as I watched Kel talking outside with Byron and Dewayne. 

Keke walked up behind me and I jumped.

"I didn't mean to scare you."

"No, its fine. I gotta stop staring at them. Kel isn't my man anymore and I need to believe that."

"Is that five bodies bothering you?"

"Hell yes. I had one body. And that one body was by accident! It wasn't EVEN planned! AND PLUS... that's after I saw Kel hugged up on Dewayne at Ray's birthday party."

Keke sighed, "boy, he lived." 

"Yes, I understand that. It still bothers me though." I whined.

Keke hugged me, "try your best to let it go."

My eyes got wide as I watched Kel walk into the house with them. 

Keke whispered, "Deme, let it go. You are not with him anymore and that was your decision!"

I followed her outside as she sat in her car.

I replied to Keke as Big Cal walked up, "yes, I gotta let it go..."

Big Cal was carrying groceries, "yo beautiful, can you open the door?"

I kissed Keke's cheek as she pulled away. I quickly ran up to Big Cal and grabbed some groceries.

"Boy, I said grab the door, not the damn groceries."

I giggled and opened the door as he led me into kitchen. I put everything down.

Tiffany Evans' Talk a Good Game was playing loudly in his living room.

He smiled, "are you gonna get in trouble like the last time you were here?"

I chuckled, "haha no. I was barely in clothes last time and I had a boyfriend."

"Oh Dig, you're single? No more Brooklyn?"

"My trip ends tomorrow, we will figure out what we are then. I just need some time."

"Does that mean you can help me cook?"

I chuckled, "you know I burn things, right?"

He came up behind me, "I'll teach you."

"Are you flirting with me? You want to be a rebound?"

He chuckled, "Perdóname."

I became confused, "what?"

"Honestly, you're a fly dude, and I would like to spend some time with you. And I don't mind being your rebound dude, to help you get over Brooklyn. And plus you're leaving tomorrow and we didn't get to chill like I wanted too. 

I replied "thank you. What does that spanish word mean?"

"It means... (he hesitated as he put the Breyers' Black Raspberry ice cream in the refrigerator.) Forgive me..."

"F-f-forgive?"

He smiled, "yes Dig. I was flirting with you. You okay?"

I thought back to Kel talking to me. He said that spanish word. I am 85% sure, this is the word he used. 

I snapped out of my confusion and finished, "yes I'm fine. So what are we making?"

"I'll teach you how to make my favorite dish."

The End
