Day 71: Xzavion Mikhael "Kel" Johnson
Viewpoint: Kel _____________________________________________________
Kel and Dee sat on the bed.
"I had a long talk with Malik and Rachel on the way up here. Before I made anything final between us, I had to talk to them. I'm sorry, I didn't react to this sooner. I didn't think this dude was going to hurt you."
"Just let it go."
"What's stopping him from coming back? And don't make any excuses for him."
Dee pouted and then said, "Me and Cris dated for a few months and when he started to punch me, I got out of the relationship. I haven't been able to stop him from coming back, and I won't make excuses for him, I just want this to be over.."
"You're afraid of him, baby." I said as I held him. "You don't have to be afraid of him, you have me."
Dee whined, "Kel, can you pleasssssse let this go. It's not important."
I kissed his forehead. We sat in silence for a few moment.
I changed the subject, "I'm off school this week. That's why I stayed away for so long, but I think I'm almost ready for the title."
Kel kissed Dee. Dee laid his head on Kel's chest. Dee then muttered, "How is Malik?"
"He doesn't have it and neither does Justin."
"Oh good! Well, that must have been scary."
"Yeah, it was... HIV ain't no laughing matter."
I changed the subject again, "Are you ready to come home with me?"
Dee looked up, "Yeah, I need to get some new clothes cause I can't go to my house."
"Cristoph is there."
"We are going there..."
Dee proclaimed, "Why?! I just told you I didn't want any trouble! Mikhael!"
"Because you're going to face him. And you won't be scared, cause I won't let him touch you."
"I won't let him."
Dee took a deep breath.
Kel said, "Baby, you ready?! Go get ya stuff."
Dee nodded his head as he stormed out.
