T.J.: God…. who am I? Who are you? I was told you created me. But, why would you create me to go through so much hell? I’m on a journey to find myself and find you. They say you know everything, but I thought I would let you know. (Inhales the blunt) My daddy gone kill me when he finds out I skipped school. I hope Monica don’t tell.
Tyrell: Monica, where is your brother? And don’t tell me you don’t know. Y’all stick together harder than overcooked rice in a pan.
Monica: Well daddy when he was on the bus this morning and after we got off he didn’t come to breakfast. You know he does that sometimes. I figured he was staying late to watch Candace practice.
Tyrell: Watch Candace or watch Candace in general? That boy isn’t head over heels, he’s head on heels! Bending over backwards for that girl. He got it honest though.
Monica: What do you mean he got it honest daddy? Who did you bend over backwards for?
Tyrell: Baby that’s not important
Monica: Well, how important am I to you?
Tyrell: What the hell is that supposed to mean?
Monica: I was just asking because I haven’t been feeling very loved lately, but if you bought me that Michael Kors purse we saw at the mall yesterday I would.
Tyrell: Three questions… What job do you have; how would that benefit you and do you plan on getting a job soon to pay me back the 300 dollars for it?
Monica: Nevermind…. I’ll just ask uncle Justin or Aunt Nicole Collectively all three of you can contribute 100 for me!
Tyrell: Girl… go set the table while I try to find your brother. Uncle Justin and Aunt Niole will be over so set them a place too.
Monica: What if I pay for it by working around the house?
Tyrell: Go do what I said!
Monica: It was worth a shot
(Knock at the door)
Tyrell: They’re mad early….
(Tyrell answers the door)
Officer Kendrick: Hello sir, how are you this evening?
Tyrell: I am well officer. What can I help you with?
Officer Kendrick: I found an i.d in an alley with this address. I was returning it. Is the boy home?
Tyrell: No, he’s not. I was just going to look for him.
Officer Kendrick: How long has he been missing
Tyrell: I haven’t seen him since this morning when he got on the bus.
Officer Kendrick: Don’t worry sir. Boys of this age just like girls do this all of the time. I am sure it’s nothing and he will be home soon. I will be looking in the vicinity and put out an APB to bring him home.
Tyrell: Thank you officer. I really appreciate it.
Monica: Who was that daddy?
Tyrell: Is the table set sweetheart?
Monica: Yea, did you find T.J.?
Tyrell: Baby go call Uncle Justin and Aunt Nicole and see if they are on their way
Monica: But what about
Tyrell: Sweetie just do what I said okay. (thought to self) Son, please come home. I hope you’re okay…
