He Loved me Past MY Pain (Dope Girlz Ink)
by Ajanay Davis
I walked into my mother’s house after a long day at school when my boyfriend called me getting on my damn nerves like always. I walked right passed my mother and little sister to my room, so I can talk without them hearing my conversation. I put the phone on speaker and sat it on my dresser so I could come out my clothes.
“Nyeem you’re on speaker so watch what the hell you say.”
“Yea whatever. Ny I’m so sick of you fucking disrespecting me. You know I don’t like that nigga and you continue to hang with him.”
This was an everyday fight with him but Nyeem had me completely fucked up if he thinks I’m going to keep listening to him bitch about Dimar.
“Nyeem why do we keep having this damn conversation I’m not ending my friendship with my best friend. We have been friends since elementary school, he was here before and damn sure gonna be here after you. So this damn conversation ends here.”
“This conversation ends when I say it does.”
“Nigga off my line I’m getting in the shower to get ready for my show tonight. Neveah and Nalijah will be here in an hour to get me.”
I hung up and got in the shower so I could get ready for my end of the school year annual show. I turned my music up and danced as I got ready. My little sister Jaliyah and best friend Andrea came in my room to join me. I had Drea do my hair real fast.
“I’m so excited about this show tonight.”
“Ny you’re excited about every damn show.”
I looked at my sister and laughed because she was right. I’m obsessed with dancing. I know how to sing but I don’t do it unless it’s necessary and I just fell in love with writing. I heard a knock on my door and my mother walked and I felt my blood get hot.
“Can I help you?”
“Why do you have this damn music on so loud making all this noise? When are you gonna grow out this damn dancing phase I mean it was cute in elementary and in middle school but you’re a Freshman in high school it’s time to grow up. Don’t you think?”
We all just looked at her like she was crazy.
“Mom I think you want to get out my room before I call my father. You’re such a freaking hater yo and it’s pathetic. You’re my mother your supposed to be my biggest fan.”
I grabbed my coat and walked out the room before she could even say another word. Between her and Nyeem I couldn’t catch a break. And it was starting to hurt my soul. I was opening the door and Neveah was about to knock.
“You alright Ny?”
“Yeah of course let’s go do this.”
My mother came running down the stairs with my sister and Drea. I walked out as she was about to start talking shit. I didn’t do much talking on our way back to school. I put on my game face and walked in the building when Nyeem pulled me into one of the classrooms.
“What I don’t have time for this Nyeem.”
“Make fucking time Nyree.”
“I don’t have time ya’ are making what is supposed to be a good day for me the worst fucking day for me.”
He didn’t even say anything to me he just slapped the shit out of me. I stood there for a second confused about what just took place.
“Yeah your ass doesn’t have nothing to say now do you?”
I walked away I couldn’t believe he did some shit like that. I saw my friends coming my way I turned and ran into the auditorium to avoid making contact with them. I had to think about all the shit that was said to me to make myself cry so my face would turn red so they wouldn’t notice the red marks on my face.
