She pressed her air conditioner as Omarion featuring Tank and Admire sung Problem. She added another coating of cranberry red lipstick and proceeded to drive into the beautiful city of Philadelphia.
She took the scenic route to reach center city. She glanced off the river of the Susquehanna river to observe the stars align. The weather and music was to her standards. Kelly Drive was decorated for light festivities and she enjoyed every minute of it.
She reached a red light by the river and looked over to her cell phone. She smiles as she notices a missed text messages from Roman and Drexel. She also had a text message from an unknown number, that was unfamiliar. She looked up and the traffic light remained red. She hovered over the message as the light remained red.
" I wonder who..." she whispered as the traffic light turn lime green.
She tossed her phone onto the passenger's seat and continued to drive. The suspicion caught her attention at every red traffic light but she kept still. She pulled into Drexel's apartment, parked her car and stood outside. The wind blew light and gentle kissed of pollen around her. She picked up the phone and check the mysterious mystery: "Happy Birthday beautiful. "

"Should I ask him about Nikki." She whispered to herself.
He texted back, "btw is Cj, how have you been?"
She looked down with disappointment, "This is hard, but I have to do it. I gotta keep surpressing emotions and feelings for John."
She grabbed her clutch and walked up to Drexel's house.
