She Was a Friend of Mine 5:Death Pool(6)By: Jasheem Wilson
Wow, I really didn’t know what Ra’Nee thought of me. The bitch done been in my house though I’d just found out where she lived when I got back from Jamaica.
Wow, did that mean I was a bad friend? Was I a friend?
Making a mental note to spend some quality time with Ney-Ney and get to know each other I decided to make the best of shopping with these hoes.
“Bae, where Diamond?” I asked Bey-Bey who had just got back to the table of accessories.
“Trying on a dress,” she said. “You find anything?”
“These for Diamond,” I said holding up the feathered earrings and walking towards the fitting room.
“Okay, okay. I see you Boss Lady, that’s fly,” Bey-Bey said.
“I know right—” I responded turning around to look at her and freezing.
Standing right behind this bitch was none other than…
Drum roll please, Lance. Yes, L.A.NCE.
I froze and then quickly pivoted to my right and down. I rushed up the lines of clothes to the fitting room where Bey-Bey said Diamond was.
As I maneuvered my way through the racks of oversized clothes until I was at the fitting room on the back wall. I could see Diamonds bear claw ass feet under the stall. Dropping to my hands and knees I rushed under the door and jumped up in the tight area next to Diamond.
“What the fuck?” Diamond said. Then laughing, “Girl you scared the shit out of me. Wait, did you just slide up under the door?”
“Yeah,” I panted almost out of breath. I shoved the earrings that I was still clutching in my hand at her and said, “This will go good with your dress.”
“You crawled under here to tell me that?”
“No bitch,” I said dusting my knees off and cracking the door open to look out. “Bitch, Lance is out there.”
Spotting him across from Bey-Bey at the accessory table chopping it up I closed the door and pulled out my phone to call Ra’Nee.
I heard her phone ringing close by.
“Bitch I’m next door I heard everything,” Ra’Nee called as her phone rang. “I was just wondering why you didn’t crawl under my door.”
“Then shut the fuck up and help me get outtah here,” I snapped hanging up my phone.
“You might wanna throw a please in there before a bitch leave yo’ ass,” Ra’Nee yelled.
I looked at Diamond who was shrugging. Sighing I rolled my eyes and said, “Please.”
“That’s more like it,” I heard Ra’Nee say and then her door opened and close.
I opened the door a crack and peeked out. Diamond watched out over my back as Ra’Nee made her way to the tables of accessories. She walked passed Bey-Bey towards the end of the table facing the door and I couldn’t help but wonder what she was going to do. Knowing her, she just woulda grab him by his ear and lead him out the store.
But she stopped at the table and made a very big scene, one that I was sure was attracting the stores attention.
“Lance! Is that you my nigga,” Ra’Nee nearly shouted and Diamond laughed silently.
I shhhed Diamond and the minute Lance turned around I knew what I was going to do.
“Open the door Diamond,” I said not looking at her. “I’m going to duck down so he can’t see me over the rack.”
“Why don’t you just go talk to him?” Diamond asked.
The same reason you ain’t got a sex change yet I thought shaking my head. I didn’t feel like explaining myself even if Diamond might have been right. But I was so not taking love advice from Diamond. Because this bitch be in worse, way worse situations than me. I’m just happy she didn’t shit where she ate.
Not anymore at least.
I ducked down not feeling the need to say anymore and Diamond opened the door and walked out behind me with her clothes.
And I was gone, duck-walking and occasionally crawling. There was only like seven people in the place including us and the two workers. Had the workers not been so entertained with Ra’Nee going on and on with her loud ass then they might have spotted me and busted me out. I mean, I was crawling around a store towards the exit, can you say S.U.S.P.E.C.T?
I was tow racks behind him. I couldn’t go any further because he was facing Ra’Nee and would see me. So, I peeked out from the side of a rack.
I didn’t want to stand up because I didn’t want the workers to see me just yet.
“What are you doing here?” Ra’Nee asked.
“I didn’t like the way this fit,” I heard Diamonds harsh ass voice break in.
“Because you Torrid fat bitch,” Ra’Nee said and I almost laughed.
“Don’t come for me,” Diamond said sounded a little upset.
I heard Ra’Nee’s loud ass laughter before she said, “Anyway, what are you doing here?”
“Oh, just droppin’ off some money to my bae,” he said smiling.
“Okay, okay,” Ra’Nee said. “That’s what I’m talking about…”
I knew these bitches was not about to sit here and have a full ass conversation with this nigga while I was crouched down on the floor like a fucking ape. My legs were on fire.
I dropped to my knees decided to just throw the whole outfit away when I heard Ra’Nee ask, “Where’s your girl?” Ra’Nee asked. “Y’all meeting in her?”
