Harlem POV: The minute I step foot in my house I walk past my dining room where I saw my mother sitting on the couch flipping through a magazine. When she noticed me, she put the magazine down, and immediately approached me. “Harlem, I’m glad that I caught you.”“Hey Mom, what’s up?”“Nothing, I just want to ask you, what do you think about us going out to eat as a family? It’s been a while since we done that, I feel the best way to adjust to this town is to go out and experience the scenery.”“I don’t know Mom, I’m not up to going out” I told her not wanting to get into the reason. I did not need to tell my mother want I witness earlier today, when I caught my father cheating again. It hurt to keep this from my mother, I don’t want to see the hurt in her eyes. I know the longer I progress keeping this from her the worse it will get my mother deserves better than what my father is giving her.“I know this is difficult for us Harlem, I feel that there been World War III in this hous
Treasure POV: Once Harlem walked away from me, I took notice of how people were staring including Charmaine and Alana. I could only imagine what they were thinking, I the rumor going around about Harlem and Charmaine becoming an idol. She doesn’t need to worry about me taking him, I have no interest in him or anyone in this school. Once I graduate, I will leave all this mess behind, I’m planning on going to school somewhere up north, or maybe in the Midwest.I'm in the cafeteria and still trying to decide. I stood in line for a few minutes once I collected my food. I roamed around trying to find an unoccupied table, and that's when I noticed Harlem sitting with that jerk Jackson. Figure it seems like birds of the feather flock together. Just as I was about to turn, Harlem got up from his seat and started walking away. From the expression on his face, it was clear that Jackson said something to make him angry. I’m sure Jackson said something stupid as always. Guys like Jackson ar
Harlem POV: I step out of the shower, re-entering my room, I head over to my closet. I pulled out black jeans, a red t-shift, and my black hoodie. As soon as I was fully dressed, I grabbed my bag and left out of my bedroom. I made it downstairs; I was about to head out “Harlem” I turn around to see my mother was standing there.“Yes mom?”“Why are you leaving out having no breakfast?”“I’m not hungry, I just want to go to school.”“Harlem, I have been your mother for almost eighteen years. I know when you are lying. Tell me the real reason, is it because of your father?”“To be honest yes, I just don’t want to get into another argument. I rather leave then to see him.”“Harlem don’t let that man run you out of this house. Adapting to this place can be tough for anyone. We can't let our family fall apart. Let's discuss your birthday over breakfast in the kitchen.“I don’t want to do anything, I’m not up for celebration this year.”“It’s your eighteenth birthday, that a big milest
Treasure POV: It’s lunch time, instead of sitting in the cafeteria with the rest of the kids. I went outside and sat under the tree. There I could focus on my plans on leaving after graduation. I don’t have an idea on where to go, I just know I want to get away. Anywhere is better than here, there no reason to stay here to be dealing with the same bullshit that I had to endure growing up. This place leaves painful memories that I want to forget, especially when my father walking out of us when I was ten. I know that my mother was trying to be strong. It was hard for her, being a signal parent and working to make ends meet. It takes a lot out of you, I remember the days that she hit rock bottom. She will be passing out on the couch with a bottle of liquor in her hand. I will always be the person to help pick up the pieces for her. When Dax came around a lot had changed including my mother’s attitude towards me. I remember how she would ignore me and give Dax all her attent
Harlem POV: “Harlem”“Yes Mom?”“Since this is your last year, what are your plans? I know you are going to college.”“I have not thought about it, since we settle here, I just been trying to adapt to the environment.”“I know son, it has not been easy for none of us. To up and move to a small town that I never heard off its hard for me to process it too.”“Its my fault that we are in this predicament, I'm sorry for what I done.”“You have nothing to apologize for, if I was in your shoes, I would have done the same, maybe worst.” I nodded, my mother and I sat in the living room continuing with our conversation. I love my mother because she can relate to the situation. Also, she is easy to talk to. She never voices her opinion until she gets the full story, I was glad that she was on my side with the situation with Preston. Most of all I was happy that she could see through all the bullshit that asshole was doing.“Trust me Harlem, I knew you was not in the wrong to break his nose.
Treasure POV: I was cleaning the last room when I heard “Treasure” I turn around and seen it was Dale who had call my name.“Yes Dale?”He told me to come to his office when I was done, then he turned around and left. I wonder what it is he wants to see me for? I have been working for him for a few months now. I have been doing my job, never talking about anything that goes on here. It's not my business to tell, these women here are nice, I know that this is there way of making a living for themselves. I never wanted to be the reason for them to be out on the street. Enough with my thoughts I started walking toward Dale office. When I entered, I see Dale sitting at his desk looking over some paper work. I cleared my throat, Dale looked up, our eyes met. “You said you wanted to see me?”“Yes have a seat Treasure” I nodded and sat in front of his desk.“The reason I ask you to come here is that I have big clients coming in tonight. If you want to make extra money, I will need fo

I even alienated myself from my friends, staying to myself all the time. When I get home, I go straight to my room, avoiding Barry. I lock my doors, and barricade it with my dresser, then I close the curtains, sitting on my bed I’m thinking how I lock myself up from the outside world. With these four walls I created my world, a world that was full of fear. In my world Barry is a monster who had no heart, that only brings pain and misery. For a few weeks I was doing good keeping the monster away from me until one afternoon I came out of my room to head to the bathroom. Then suddenly out of nowhere the monster strike grabbing me from behind. This time he took me into my mother room, again I try to fight him off of me, I fail miserably.

The reason was when I first got here, there was this girl name Lindsay who approach me, I thought she wanted to be friends. I soon found out that was it, a few months being here I found out that Lindsay had used me to make her girlfriend Soleil jealous. With that Soleil wanted to fight me for it. After everything that I was through I was not about to show any weakness, towards some pathetic ass bitches who like to cause drama. When Soleil approach me with her girls including Lindsay.

What I hate most about being home is bumping into my mother and Dax, that sometimes I wish I was back in juvenile. Those two have no shame of what they do, I remember earlier in the afternoon I went downstairs to get a drink of water. I checked to see if I had any mail, I walk into the living room. The minute I enter I truly regret ever doing it, there was my mother and Dax having sex on the couch butt naked. That all I could do was leave out of the room, I know that me catching them in the act, did not stop them because I could them keeping going. I return to my room and laid in the bed and went to sleep. A few hours later, I woke up and headed back downstairs, when I enter the living room this time no one was there.
