Are you down for me? will you ride for me?
you say forever but forever isn't enough... She never thought she would end up in this predicament, he was never suppose to fall so hard for her. Are you down for the ride because once we hit the road there's no turning back.
Delani & Sonny.. this is their story.
After 5 minutes of walking into the wrong class rooms I ended up at ‘307’ sucking in as much air as I could and pushed the door open.
“Uh Hi, Im Soraya” I said to the man I presumed was the teacher.
“Ah, I’m Mr Fredricks. You can take a seat behind Cassie.. Cassie raise your hand” he looked over my shoulder, turning around I saw the girl he was talking about and nodded my head while I continued to my seat. On my way I noticed that Tyga dude was in my class along with the guys he was stood outside with earlier and that asshole Delani. I rolled my eyes and sat down in my chair, how ironic was it that Tyga was sitting to my left and Delani to my right. I was messing with my phone until I herd Tyga speak out.
“Sup Sonny?” he said leaning over his desk
“Whats good Ty?” I replied, peering over my phone.
The girl in front of me turned around and raised her eyebrow looking between me and Tyga.
“Hold up, ‘Ty’ you know this knuckle head already?” she said pointing to Tyga, I giggle and nodded.
“Somewhat, I met him when I first pulled up“
“He’s always tryna make new friends.. you’d think he was a loner” she joked pushing his head.
“Girl, you gonna stop frontin on me or you ain’t getting this dick for a week” he sucked his teeth and turned to one of his friends.
“Stupid ass, don’t mind him.. I’m Cassie. Whats your name pretty girl?”
“Alrighty, well this is Savana, Evelyn, Draya and Hayden” she pointed each girl out and we exchanged hellos and wassups.
“And they are Barry, Nino, Trell, Keeis, Antwon and Delani” she pointed the boy’s out. They all seemed cool so far, I felt holes being burned into the side of my face; I turned to see Delani starring at me hard and I couldn’t quit read the look on his face. I sucked my teeth and as I was about to open my mouth until the same girl from the hallway stomped up to me stopping in front of my desk.
“Um excuse me new BITCH but your in MY seat next to MY man” she spat pointing towards Delani; I looked at him and he looked slightly pissed.
“Man Alonna fuck outta here with that shit” he said rubbing his neck.
I laughed at her and leaned back in my chair a bit, by now the whole class was watching with the exception of Mr Fredricks he wasn’t even in the class.
“Naa Leave her Delani she looks like she got a lot to say” I said unusually calm.
“Hoe, you need to get up out my seat, you think because you new you can act like you bad? bitch up” She said while her two friends behind her laughed.
I looked at her and laughed again before I spoke.
“Alonna is it? ..I’m not gonna take being called out my name much longer so imma need you to take ya Soul Train looking ass out my face along with the ugly crap twins behind you or your surely going to find my foot so far up your ass the next time you take a shit it’ll be through your damn nose so if you don’t mind…..fuck out my face” I said still talking calm before direction my focus back to my phone.
The whole class erupted in laughter including Cassie, the girls and Delani and them guys as she stormed off out the class with her two groupies. I shrugged my shoulders and looked at Tyga who was flat out on the floor trying to catch his breath.
“YOO, son that shit was funny as hell, aye Soraya you don’t look like you got mouth like that!” Nino said wiping the tears out his eyes, I sucked my teeth n smirked.
“Man, ain’t nobody sweating her scary ass.. but hey Delani” I looked at him and he looked at me adjusting his hat over his head.
“Keep your lil groupie in check because i’d hate for an unfortunate accident to happen to your source of pussy“ I spat and turned in my seat and focused on the front as Mr Fredricks walked back in and started the lesson.
*1 hour Later*
I felt him starring at me the whole lesson, maybe what I said came out a little harsh but it needed to be said and quit frankly, I didn’t care.
“Hey, Sonny.. you wanna come with us to lunch?” Draya asked packing up her stuff.
“Um I dunno about that, I’m not tryna deal with that chick again” I said as we walked out the classroom.
“Who Alonna? that bitch wont say another word to you, now that you blazed her in front of the whole class” Evelyn said laughing. I chuckled and agreed.
After walking into the cafeteria we got our lunch and headed to one of the tables outside where the guys were sitting, I noticed Delani giving me evil eyes.
Man I was still stuck on what shawty said to me in the class, how she put me out like that. How she put Alonna on blast. I knew she wasn’t gonna even look my way now; probably assuming i’m one of them ‘typical’ girl drama, playa, disrespectful to females, ain’t got shit hood nigga. But I was far from that and she was gonna learn that even if it killed me.
Tyga nugged me.
“Aye the girls coming over with Sonny.. you feeling her already nigga?”
“What you talking bout stupid?” I said putting a toothpick in my mouth.
“You know what i’m talking about… I saw you burning holes in her face, i’m pretty sure you could see that shit from Africa. That’s what” he spat quietly as the girls got closer.
“Man.. you don’t know what you talking bout” I mumbled under my breath. As they came and sat down and ironically Soraya ended up sitting opposite me.
”Mmmhmmmmm” Tyga sung as he wrapped his hand around Cassie. I chuckled stupid nigga.
I looked up at Soraya who was engrossed in her phone while everyone held separate conversations, She was so beautiful. Those plump lips damn and like clock work she licked her lips and I saw she had her tongue pierced, I felt my self harden; I needed to get away from her and fast before I threw her on the table and tore her up in front of everyone.
My phone began to vibrate in my hand and it was Brock. I got up from the table and walked over and sat on the wall before answering.
“Talk to me… okok, what now? serious nigga? aaight give me an hour” I ended the call before jumping off the wall back to the table picking up my bag.
“Aye Ty, Keeis, Nino, Twon, Trell we gotta go..NOW. Mijo you down?” I looked at Barry. He knew something was up because I only called him Mijo when it was serious but that’s another story for another time.
He meshed his eyebrows together and looked at me then nodded. Ty kissed Cassie, Nino kissed Evelyn and Keeis kissed Draya on the forehead; I don’t know why that nigga stays trying to hide what him and Draya have going on.
“Alright ya’ll ready?” I asked they all nodded.
“Ladies.. we’ll see you later. Cass you know what to tell Ms Matt.. imma holla at you later ya’ll come by mine when we get back” I told her kissing her cheek, I loved Cass to the death of me, blood couldn’t make us any closer. She held it down for us, for Ty. I told Ty if he ever fucked shit up with her i’d personally kick his ass. I was about to turn and walk away but I turned back and looked at Soraya, she sat there confused it was kinda cute. I walked and leaned over her putting my head in her neck; I felt her shiver under me. I laughed a little before i spoke in her ear.
“Make sure you come with them later, I wanna talk to you aight?”
“Y-y-yes” she mumbled and I chuckled.
“Good, see you later babygirl” I whispered and kissed her neck before I walked away not bothering to look back but I saw Tyga smirking from the corner of my eye.
‘Anything that you want baby tell me you want it, I got it babe…’
I woke to Ne-yo’s ‘Say It’ coming through the the speakers on my phone, turning off my alarm I noticed it was already 7:30am and i needed to be up getting ready for my first day at this new school and to say i was nervous would be an understatement. You would think after going to 3 different high schools in the space of one year i’d be used to it already. I guess not. I mean these Cali girls where known for being the epitome of FAKE and i was not about to become an addition.
After 30 minutes in the shower i was out and fully dressed in black leather leggings, a white cami, an over sized light denim jacket and my black creepers. Pulling my hair up into a ninja bun and I was ready to go.
“MAAAA!” I shouted running down the stairs into the kitchen to pick up my keys.
“Sonny stop that god damn shouting in the house!! ..i’m in lounge; you ready?” she said walking into the kitchen kissing my cheek.
“Yeah, i’m about to leave out.. you gonna be here when i get back or……” I asked half way out the door.
“I’m not sure but keep you cell close i’ll call you if i’m going out and be nice please I know all this is hard for you but try to at least make friends” she came up hugging me, i returned to favor and turned to my car. Turning back before I got in.
“I’m not making any promises mom but i’ll see, love you and i’ll text you at lunch. ADIOSSSS CHICKA” I said throwing up my deuces while I backed out the drive way.
My new school was roughly 20 minutes away from where I lived which was cool because I could get an extra 30 minutes pillow time in the morning, as I pulled up into the student parking lot all of the spaces were taken apart from one next to this cherry red Lamborghini which was ironically surrounded by 5 or 6 guys I wasn’t quit sure if one was in the middle or not. When I pulled up I checked the rear view mirror making sure I looked okay; grabbing my LV speedy I stepped out the car locking it I heard a few ‘damnnn she thick’s and ‘who dat’s as I chuckled. Before I could fully turn around this skinny light skinned guy approached me as he ran his hand over the hood of my car.
“Damn girl, this you?” he pointed to my pink Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder.
“Yeah, fly ain’t she?” I joked
“Fly ain’t even the word… you fresh meat?”
I fell out laughing at his choice of words and then nodded.
“How you figure? ..I’m Soraya but call me Sonny“
“Nice nice, I’m Micheal but call me Tyga and you don’t dress like these girls from Westbrooke High guuh” he chuckled.
“Oh well I guess that’s a good then, but aye I gotta go and get my schedule and all that induction shit sooo i’ll catch up with you later or something“ I said nodding towards the entrance.
“Alright nice to meet you ma, see you around” he said walking back towards the boys posted around the cherry red beside us, I nodded as the outside bell rang. One by one the guys around the car moved and that’s when I locked eyes with him, he smirked as he walked pass me.
Getting myself together I headed inside the building dodging through the crowds that filled the hallway, trying not to bump into anyone was near impossible but that was the least of my problems, I followed the signs along the walls which lead me to the head office.
“How may i help you miss” the lady behind the desk said to me as she looked up for the computer.
“Um i’m Soraya Aiko, the transfer from New York.. I need my schedule“ I replied giving her the letter I got a few weeks back before we moved out here.
“Ahh yes Miss Aiko i’m Maria Vasquez, just a minute i’ll print your timetable out and give you a late pass..” she said getting up and walking over to the printer, she somewhat reminded me of my mom. She was about 5’7 with long sandy colored hair and light eyes. I was so caught up in looking at the walls with academic achievements the school got that I didn’t even realise somebody next to me until Maria spoke.
“Mr Brown, why am I not surprised to see you in here once again“
“Maan Miss V you gonna stop clownin on me, i’m not in trouble ACTUALLY, I just came to get my new timetable the one they printed out wasn’t the same shit that was on the computer.. so yeah” I turned to see the guy from the parking lot, the one that owned the Cherry Red i presume.
She laughed as she made her way back to the computer and then back to the printer.
“Excuse me miss” he said to me.
“I’m Delani, whats your name ma?”
“Soraya, but call me Sonny”
“Nice, pretty name fo’ a pretty girl, ho-” he was cut short by Maria
“Booy, if you don’t get your ass out my office and stop nagging the girl” she said handing both of us our timetables and a late pass.
I giggled, if all the teachers were like Maria i was gonna have a fucking blast here, Delani sucked his teeth and mumbled something under his breath.
“Anyway, Soraya if there is anything you need sweetheart don’t be afraid to come here anytime“ she said while taking her seat behind the desk, I nodded and headed out the door with Delani behind.
“Aye ma, you want me to show you where to go?” he shouted from behind me, just when I turnt back to say something I saw this girl with bleach blonde hair walk up to him and kiss him. I chuckled. Typical nigga. He must have felt my stare because he pulled away and looked up at me as he wiped his lip of the lipgloss that blonde chick put on him.
“No, i’m fine by myself thanks…OH and i’m not ya ‘Ma’” I rolled my eyes and continued down the hallway.
I heard that chick mumble something like ‘you don’t need her Breezy.. i’m right here’. So much for a good start to my day, bitches wanna try me.
Soraya ‘Sonny’ Aiko:
I glanced out the window, saying goodbye to the neighbourhood I used to call home. I never thought things would end up this bad, they say if something is worth fighting for then you’ll fight until the end right? Sad that didn’t apply to him. I watched him stand on the front yard of my former home; head hung low hands in his pocket i’m sure I saw a tear but I was past the point of caring.
You made your bed… now lay in it.
‘I’m in this fight, and i’m swinging and my arms are getting tired, i’m trying to beat this emptiness but i’m running out of time’
Plugging my earphones in becoming immune to the world outside of music, Beyonce’s sweet melody took me to another would as i floated in & outta sleep. My mother was right..
You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.
Delani ‘Breezy’ Brown:
There’s only so much you can do until a situation spirals out of your control and i guess I was part to blame for that. I stood there watching as her car sped down the road trying to comprehend why she would just up and leave like that. No warning, No arguing, No fights.. I just came home to see her packing, she didn’t once utter a word to me until she was seconds from getting in the car.
“Goodbye Baby, Im Sorry”
Sorry wasn’t enough, I lifted my head to the sky and asked God why? was this for all the bad I’ve done over the years, was it for all those times I stood back and watched shit play out when I could have stepped in? I could have saved her. She left me to fend for myself after everything she knew she still left. I guess it was a little to late now. My dad was right…
You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.
