PLEASE before I start, I will like to say this: Don't be a ghost reader, let me know your view about what you are reading, let me know what you are anticipating, help cast give replies to harsh comments they get and most of all correct me where I go wrong.
I walked into my eyes carefully wondering what was happening but nothing seemed unusual except the cellphone on the dinning which I recognised to belong to Jerry.
Okay this is quite unusual, Hilda is not here watching movies as always or did she go out? How did Jerry get in then?
I looked up the stairs and there was no sign of anyone, I decided to check Hilda in her room maybe she can explain all these.
As I walked up the stairs, I noticed something but fought my head for such thought, it just can't be.
I found a piece of clothing on the floor, a black shirt! No way! I haven't seen any man with mama of recent, I just kept praying I was wrong with my thinking.
"No, no way" I muttered to myself and quickened my pace, I have to get this settled. Opening the door to mama's room, I met the shock of my life!
"How dare you?" I yelled. They both jumped and started rushing to get dresses, I mean he could not have cheated on me with anyone but mama? What a douche.
"What do you mean? Can't I have a man in my house?" Mama asked in annoyance, she doesn't get this I guess.
"Of course you can but not a man your daughter's age who happens to be her boyfriend" I yelled, she looked confused, of course she couldn't have known.
"Daughter? God Tunica, I never knew she was your mother" That bastard just has to talk uhn? Defence? I shake my head in disbelief.
"Well, that just takes it all away right?" I asked him and he shakes his head ready to defend himself but I yelled at him.
"If you don't get out of here now, you will completely curse the day you were born" he ran out of the room, picking up his shirt on the way.
Another heartbreak but why? Am I not worthy of love? I turned away not wanting to look mama in the face, if she weren't my mother I will have pulled her out by her hair.
I got to the living room, Jerry was just leaving but Asher walked in, confused.
"Who was that?" He asked, confused.
Ok, I know it is crazy my best friend doesn't know my boyfriend but that is just it, I wait till everything is balanced before telling anyone anything and I was starting to think it was time. Foolish me!
"Mina and Mama's boyfriend" I replied with disgust, he looked even more confused. I thought he was busy though!
"You kid a lot Tunes, he could also be my mom's boyfriend" he joked, the fool doesn't even have a mom yet he said that? I gave no reaction and he realised I was serious.
"Really" he asked with his eyes wide but instead of replying I fell into the couch and cried.
"Why am I so unlucky with love Asher? They always break me!" I cried, he quickly came to hug me.
"Come on Tunes, whatevers happened to the 'I will never cry over a man' Tunica?" He asked.
I heard footsteps from the stairs, she just had to show her face uhn?
"Tunica darling" she called out, I broke free from Asher's grasp, she was really pushing her luck.
"Yes mother? Might I remind you of your age? What does a 39 years old woman have to do with a 24 years old man? Are men your age finished? I yelled but she stayed silent.
"I said to get a man not to hire a jigolo! I wanted a father figure MOTHER! I grew up without a father and dont need some crazy guy in his mid twenties showing up here! Oh mother, I'm sorry I ruined your youth, I'm sorry you had to have me when you did but might I remind you that it's not my fault the 16 years old you could not close her legs!" I told her in tears and anger, must she be irresponsible to the very end?
"Well it's not your fault I had you at sixteen and it was not your fault that I could not bear to abort you, it was all my fault for keeping you and I do not regret it because you are my daughter and I love you so much!" She replied in tears. This was too much to handle, my mother was having an affair with my boyfriend!
I walked away, I could hear Asher call after me and mama crying but I just don't care anymore at this moment.
I got into the shower, took a quick bath and changed into a tee Asher had given me that reads "my best friend it trouble" and a bum short.
"Tunica" I heard Asher call hitting my door hard. I wanted to send him away but I could not, no matter how hard I try to hide it, he is still the best friend ever!
"My best friend is trouble" he read from my tee, if it were to be on another day we would have started bickering. I shook my head.
"My mother is" I said more like a whisper.
"She is not" he said quietly and came to lay beside me pulling me in his arms.
"She is too, she was the cause of Carrick cheating on me with Whitney. She wanted to TEST them and now Jerry!"
" But she is your mother! Remember 'Ive got the best mom, shinning as ever, she got the best smile, young as eve......"
"Don't" I yelled at him, I'd always sing that to mama, she has always been more like a sister, I loved the closeness! I love her.
"I'm moving out, it's about time" I told Asher who was in utter shock! He looked at me like I have grown horns. Okay this is kinda awkward, Asher is not teasing me, he is not arguing, he has not been Asher.
"Oh mama's girl is moving out? You could stay and get married here you know?" Ok, Asher is back.
"I told you a million times to move out but you did not want to leave mummy" he said, really pissing me off.
"Get out!" I yelled at him.
"I'd call your boss that you love so much and tell him you are sick" he said caressing my hair
"Thank you Asher, you are...."
"I am the best I know, now time to eat! Remember we are not crying over any man again" he said and I nodded like a baby.
"But I'm not hungry, tell me about your date" I said changing the topic.
"Disaster, the lady stinks" He said disgusted making me laugh.
"Not funny Tunes" He said but I was laughing real hard, at least mama won't have the gut to fight him this time. "But seriously you need to introduce her to your strawberry scent, tell her how you do it"
"I know you always love my scent" I teased. "It's your addiction"
"It's my addiction" we both said together and laughed, even though I was not really happy!

Anticipate chapter 5.
Tunes On a regular Thursday I wake up to an alarm or mama's yelling not a hot sexy man in my bed. Sometimes I wonder why I'm not in love with this crap headed guy but like I said crap headed. I just stared at his face tracing my hand down his nose I smiled "who will say he is so troublesome sleeping like a baby" I thought until I felt something grab my hand. "How many times have I told you to just accept that I am just ever handsome than sneakily admiring me in my sleep"He said with his eyes still closed and his voice husky from his asleep. "Well good morning to you too" I replied sarcastically and got out of bed "Wow I slept in" I muttered looking at the time 10 a.m. "I am your sedative, you sleep in when I am beside you" Asher said also getting out of bed in just his trouser and bare chest. "Alice in Wonderland" I said packing my hair into a messy bun, I went to the mirror and my eyes were swollen from
StaniceTunica walked into my office in a red knee-length dress, her eyes were swollen, it was so obvious even though she tried hiding it behind her makeup, I knew she was not sick when that cocky guy called yesterday but I could not ask anything, for all I know, I was a jerk to her even though she was always there for me."Morning sir, here is your schedule for the day, let me know when you need me" she said as professional as ever and turned to leave."Sir?" I loved it when she call my name, I was an asshole to take out my anger on her. She pretended not to hear me though, I knew she was mad at me."I am so sorry Tunica, I was not in my best mood and Stanley worsened it by just being a dick like always, I should not have transferred my aggression" I explained to her. She turned to me with a face so serious, I thought I was seeing another person, my heart was beating fast at the thought of her still being mad at me. She is my friend yet I hurt her.<
Tunes"Get someone else" He said in anger."But he is good, why are you so against him?" I asked in reply, oh Stanice and I are arguing about my choice of Lawyer, he seem to be so much against Asher and I know Asher will be just great for this.Asher is a fan of Larry, Asher is a good lawyer, Asher would not want to let me down."I don't want him Tunica, get someone else" He yelled in frustration."Fine but you will be getting that someone else yourself and don't come complaining when Larry gets imprisoned" I told him as a matter of factly. He sighed shaking his head."Fine but if he acts all egostic around me, I will strangle him" he replied and I left his office smiling, I have a load of work on my hand.I have to meet Asher as soon as possible, Larry, his manager, Harrisa as well, I am not just the assistant to the CEO Stan entertainment but it was also my duty to make sure everything runs smoothly.I drove straight down to
Ashes I walked into Harrisa's house and met her mother, a quite young woman but beautiful, she welcomed me warmly. "I'm so glad this will be resolved, I've really known Larry with my daughter and he is a good person" Mrs. Barny said and I just smiled. "Oh there she is" she said once Harrisa showed up. "I'm sorry for keeping you waiting sir" Harrisa apologized before taking a seat beside her mother. "No it is really okay, I am Lawyer Asher Hamilton in charge of Mr. Larry Manchester's case and I hope you don't mind me asking you a few questions" I explained being completely professional. "No not at all" she replied shaking her head. "Anything to get Larry out of this mess" she added. Taking a closer look at her, she seemed to have been crying and haven't slept well. I sighed. "Who is Mr. Manchester to you?" I asked her even though I was already aware. "He is my boyfriend" she replied and I nodded. "Boyfriend? Interesting,
Tunica I sat out here expecting Asher to come out, they were spending so much time in there and I can't help but wonder if this is how long stuffs like this usually is or were they probably fighting already? I know so well they are not especially fond of each other but everything should be okay, right? While thinking all of these, Asher walked out. "That took a while" I told him and he smiled. "Your boss is hard work, I wonder how you cope with him" He replied placing me on my table and stood between my legs like we do at home. "You will be surprised to hear what I just found out" He replied getting me curious. "Tell me" I said eagerly but then he shakes his head. "You will just have to find out in court" "Really now? That's not fair" I whined hitting his chest but then someone happened to cough beside us. Stanice! "This is a work place in case both of you are not aware" He said angrily and I got off my table quickly, I don't w
Tunes I was so happy, everyone was, I was proud of Asher for doing such a great job, I was sure he will do well and he did, while everyone was rejoicing, I went to him quickly and hug him tight. "You were cool in there" I said making him chuckle. "Oh so now I'm cool uhn?" He asked and I nodded childishly. Someone cleared his throat beside us and that happened to Stanice. "This is not your work place Stanice" Asher attacked him before he could even say a thing, I wonder why they both act like two crazy men fighting over a woman or is there one I'm not aware of? "Thanks for reminding me but I can see that myself" he replied and turned to me "Tunica, I want to see you now" he told me. "It's not working hours, you can't just order her around" Asher shot at him but I held on to his arm calming him. "Just one minute" I told Asher who pouted like a kid making me laugh. I went along with Stanice over to his car where he stopped and tur
