Ep.11 Picnic in the Park

“You know I love you right?” Chris asked as he looked deep into my eyes. I couldn’t stop the smile from spreading across my face. He loves me. He actually loves me! I smiled wider and Chris licked his lips before I kissed him passionately.

“You’re beautiful, you know that?” He asked when he pulled away from our kiss. I felt myself starting to blush and I giggled and looked away from him.

“Why are you acting shy?”

“I don’t know. You just make me nervous.”

“You weren’t nervous a few minutes ago.” He said with a wink and a smirk on his face.

“Oh my god stop. I bet everyone in the office heard us.”

“First of all everyone should be working and not worrying about what we’re doing in here. Second of all there was no "us”. You were the one making all the noise.“

"Nuh uh. You were making noise too.”

“I wasn’t loud like you though. Fuck….R-Right….there Chris!!” Chris mocked me and laughed.

“You know I can’t be quite Christopher.”

“You need to learn then. You know CJ is a beast.” There he goes with this CJ shit again.

“I’m going to get back to work now.”

“Or…we could take the rest of the day off.”

“But we just got here and I have work to do.”

“So what? I don’t have anything to do. I don’t have any meetings today and you’re my assistant. If I don’t have anything to do, you don’t either.”

“I have to check and answer emails and answer phone calls-”

“You have your cell phone so you can do all that when we’re out. Actually you can ask Kelli and them to cover for you. I’ll ask them right now.” Chris said as he walked over to the door and opened it. I saw Kelli, Sabrina, and Luana scrambling to get back to their places. Were they listening the whole time?

“What are y'all doing?” Chris asked with his arms folded across his chest.

“I was just…counting the tiles on the floor.” Luana stammered.

“And I was helping her.” Kelii said, smiling weakly.

“I was listening to y'all fuck.” Sabrina said. My jaw dropped and Kelii slapped her arm. Sabrina just says anything!

“What, I’m not gonna lie. Don’t act like y'all wasn’t listening to them get it in.”

“Can y'all just get to work? I mean I do pay you to work and not ease drop.” Chris asked.

“Oooo someone is mad!” Luana said laughing loudly.

“Just get back to work. Come on Robyn.”

“Where are y'all going?” Kelli asked.

“They’re probably going to have round 2 at his house.” Sabrina said.

“Haha very funny. We’re leaving early and since you got jokes you can cover for Robyn Sabrina.” She sucked her teeth and rolled her eyes.

“Have fun.” Luana said to both Sabrina as she sat down at her desk and Chris and I as we got into the elevator. She gave Luana the finger before she yelled “Don’t fuck each other too long! Y'all might get stuck together!” before the elevator door closed.

“They are so crazy.” Chris said as he pressed the button to take us to the first floor.

“I told you everyone would hear us.”

“They heard us because their nosy asses were standing outside the door.”

“Yeah but I don’t want them to know how I moan.” I said as I walked out of the elevator and went into the parking garage where Chris’ car was.

“Why not? It sexy.” After he opened my door Chris slapped my butt as he helped me into the car.

“It’s just weird. I have to work with them. Now every time they look at me I’m gonna think they’re imagining me and you having sex.”

“Shit they might.” I slapped his arm and he started driving.

“You are so gross.”

“I’m sorry. I was born that way.”

“I feel so sorry for Mama J. You probably drove her crazy.”

“My mama lovveeee me.”

“If you say so.”

“Keep getting smart and I’ll take that ring back.”

“I’m sowwey.”

“That’s what I thought.”

“You’re lucky I like this ring or I wouldn’t be apologizing.”

“So I gotta buy you rings every time I want you to apologize to me?”

“That would be nice.”

“Damn, I’m gonna be broke.”

“I’m kidding. I really do love this ring.”

“Do you love it as much as you love me?”


“Hmmm? That’s it! I’m taking it back to the store.”

“No you’re not!” I yelled as I plucked him in his ear.

“Owww stop! Now you’re not getting CJ for a month!” He yelled as he tickled me.

“Both hands on the wheel!” I screamed as I slapped the back of his head and he stopped tickling me.

“You’re gonna stop hitting on me.”

“You’re gonna stop being nasty.”

“I thought you liked nasty.” He licked his lips and put his hands on my thigh.

“You thought wrong.”

“You sure?” I felt his hand slid further and further up my leg and I felt myself getting wet. I bit my lip and clenched my legs together, trapping his hand in the middle of my thigh.

“I’m sure.” He licked his lips and squeezed my thigh. Just watching him lick his lips got me wet because I know very well what he can do with his tongue. I had my eyes closed now and digging my nails into the seat. I felt his breath next to my ear and then the car jerked to a stop. I screamed and wrapped myself in my arms.

“Calm down. It’s okay.” I heard Chris say. I opened my eyes slowly and saw that we were in front of a homeless shelter. What the hell are we doing here? I had my arms wrapped around my legs and I let them go and looked at Chris.

“What are we doing here?”

“I have to check on something.”

“Are we doing volunteer work or something?”

“No…just stay here. I’ll be right back.” Chris said before he got out the car.

I was getting a little touchy feely with Robyn in the car and she was loving it. She was trying to act like my touch wasn’t affecting her but I knew she was wet. I was about to kiss her spot when I saw the shelter in the corner of my eye. Shir Jasmine! I forgot Jasmine! I cut off three cars and made my way into the parking lot in a matter of seconds. Robyn screamed and pulled herself into a ball in her seat.

“What are we doing here?”

“I have to check on something.”

“Are we doing volunteer work or something?”

“No…just stay here. I’ll be right back.” I got out of the car and walked into the shelter. It was cold and plain looking plus it smelled like moth balls. I fought the sick feeling in my stomach and walked up to the front desk.

“How may I help you sir?” The woman behind the desk asked.

“I was wondering if anyone name Jasmine came here today?”

“Who’s asking?” She squirted her light blue eyes and checked me out.

“I’m Chris Brown. I own Black Pyramid.”

“I know who you are. I need to know who you are to Jasmine. I can’t give out information to anyone who walks in here.”

“I’m a friend of hers. I dropped her off this morning.”

“And now you want her back?”

“No..yes…I just want to know if she made it here safe.”

“Well no one named Jasmine came in here today.”

“Are you sure?”

“I’m very sure sir.”

“She’s light skin, curly dirty blonde hair, big hazel eyes-”

“She never came in here sir.”

“But I left her here an hour ago-”

“Well she’s not here.”

“Where is she then?”

“I don’t know but I haven’t seen her. Hopefully she’ll show up before you have to get the police involved.”

“Yeah…thanks for your help.” I mumbled as I walked towards the door.

“I’m sorry about your friend.” The lady said as I walked out the door. I ignored her and sprinted back to my car.

“What were you doing?” Robyn asked as soon as I got in the car.

“I was looking for Jasmine.” I was hoping she wouldn’t ask anymore questions but I knew that wouldn’t happen.

“Jasmine? You mean your ex Jasmine?”

“Yeah her.”

“Why is she in a shelter…no I don’t give a fuck about that. Why are you looking for her?”

“After we fought last night I went for a drive and I ran into her.”

“And you fucked her?”

“She’s a mess. She’s a prostitute now and a druggie. I took her to my place for the night-”

“So you could fuck her?!”

“No, we didn’t do anything. I just let her use my shower and sleep in my bed.”

“And I bet your ass was right in bed with her huh?”

“I was but nothing happened I promise.” She started me down for a few seconds and I swallowed hard.

“Okay I believe you. You better be telling me the truth.”

“I wouldn’t lie to you.”

“So how’d she end up at the shelter if she was at your place?”

“I dropped her off there before I went to the office. I didn’t want my ex and my girlfriend in the same place and I didn’t want to leave her at my house.”

“She’s a druggie so she probably steals too.”

“I don’t think she would take anything from me but I didn’t want to take a chance. I didn’t know where else to take her so I just dropped her off at the shelter and now she’s gone.”

“What do you mean gone?”

“She never went into the shelter. She must have ran off after I left.”

“It must be a sign that you shouldn’t be involved with her.”

“I guess so but I’m still worried about her. She’s afraid for her life and plus she’s on drugs. I just wanted to help her you know. I was hoping I could at least get her into a rehab center or something but I guess she’s not ready to be clean. Jas was talking about needing a fix this morning so that’s probably where she went. God I hope she’s okay.” I said with a sigh.

“Chris can I ask you something?”

“You just did.”

“I’m serious.”

“Okay what’s up?”

“You’d never leave me for her would you?”

“No, never.” I said truthfully. I may still have love for her and care about Jasmine but I’d never give Robyn up for her.

“Really? Not even if we have a big fight and she pops up again?”

“I promise you that’s not gonna happen. I’m done with her. I tried to help her but she didn’t want it so I’m not gonna worry about it anymore.”

“Good.” Robyn said as we drove into a parking garage. I helped her out of the car and we walked to Central Park hand in hand.

I felt at ease hearing Chris say that he’s always be by my side no matter what. I know he still has feelings for Jasmine but that’s only because she’s his first love and everyone knows you never forget your first love. I’ll always care about Matthew but I’d never get back together with him and I don’t even think he would want to now that I’m pregnant. I’m just glad I found someone who loves me for me and will always be there for me. After we got out of the car we walked hand in hand into Central Park. We ditched work to go to a park?

“We’re missing work for this?”

“Today is just a chill day and you need to relax workaholic.”

“We’re over dressed. We should have stopped and changed before we got here.”

“Relax we’re fine.”

“But I have on heels-”

“I don’t want to hear it.”

“My feet are gonna be killing me!” I whined as we walked pass the lake.

“Nobody told you to stuff your dogs in those shoes.”

“Shut up!” I yelled, punching his arm.

“What I tell you about hitting me?” Chris asked as he rubbed the spot where I hit him.

“I don’t remember.” He tried to look serious but when I smiled widely at him he smiled back.

“Ima let you slid this time cuz you’re cute but next time it’s your ass.”

“Yeah yeah, I know.”

“You hungry?”

“A little.”

“Come on. Let’s go get a hot dog.” Chris rushed to the nearest hot dog cart and I trailed behind him. He is definitely gonna give me a foot rub later.

“I want onions, and chili, and uhhh put a little bit of sour crout on there too.” Chris said to the vender. The vender started piling condiments on his hot dog and I shook my head.

“I hope you don’t think you’re kissing me after you eat that shit.”

“I don’t. I know I’m going to kiss you.” Chris said as the vender gave him his hot dog.

“What would you like miss?” The vender asked.

“I just want a plain hot dog with mustard and ketchup.”

“Coming right up.”

“You’re not fun.”

“I’m no fun because I don’t want to mix a bunch of shit together and eat it? Sorry but I don’t want bad breath or diarrhea.” I said as I took my hot dog from the vender. Chris paid for out hot dogs and we started walking through the park.

“It’s actually good.”

“I doubt it. It looks like shit.”

“Shit is your favorite word huh?”

“I’m sorry but that combination you have there is a mess and it smells horrible.”

“Don’t knock it tell you try it.”

“I’ll pass.”

“Fine, more for me then.”

“What are we doing out here?”

“I told you we’re having a chill day.”

“I know but what are we suppose to be doing? Eating hot dogs? Walking in the park?”

“We’re having a picnic.”

“A picnic? Really Chris?”

“Yeah, what’s wrong with a picnic?”

“Nothing it’s just that you don’t have a blanket or a basket-”

“We have my jacket and that big ass purse of yours could be a basket.” I hit him in his side with my purse and almost knocked him over.

“Damn, what do you have in there? Bricks?”

“Just a few.” Chris took of his jacket, spread it across the grass and gestured for me to sit.

“You don’t have to do that. We can just sit on a bench or something.”

“Naw, go ahead and sit.”

“But that jacket was probably really expensive-”

“It’s alright. I can get a new one if the grass messes it up. I’m sure your dress was expensive too. Just sit down, you said your feet were hurting.” He held my hot dog and handed it to me after I got comfortable on his jacket. He sat close to me on his jacket and started eating his lab experiment.

“This is random but I was thinking we should move in together.” I said.

“I was thinking about that too. We’re together and we’re having a baby so it doesn’t make much sense for us to live in different houses.”

“I know. That would just make things complicated.”

“So do you wanna move in with me or….”

“Your place is a lot bigger than mine. It has more room for the baby to run around in and you have an extra room.”

“No I don’t.”

“Yes you do. The room with the recliner and big screen t.v-”

“That’s my man cave.”

“It’s the baby’s room now.”

“Come on Robyn. Can’t we just buy a whole new house together?”

“We can do that later as in five more years. Right now we need to think about getting baby stuff.”

“But where am I suppose to relax?”

“You can relax in the living room. There’s a t.v and a chair in there just like in your "mancave”. You can make it work Chris.“

"Already telling me what to do and we ain’t even married.” Chris mumbled under his breath. His stank breath at that.

“I can hear you.”

“I know.”

“Don’t make me hit you again.”

“What else do you want me to do Queen Robyn?”

“We need to make an appointment to see the baby doctor.”

“Oh yeah. We do need to do that huh? I’ll start looking for OBGYN’s when we get home.”

“I’m coming over your house tonight.”

“Okay. We’ll stop by your house after this so you can get some clothes.” I was about to say something when the sound of children laughing made me lose my train of thought. Chris and I turned to the direction of the laughing and saw children playing on the play ground.

“Daddy can you push me?” A little girl asked her father as she pointed to the swings. He nodded his head and put her in the swing. As her father pushed her she smiled wide and laughed while yelling “Higher! Higher!”

“That’s gonna be you in a few years.” I said to Chris.

“Naw that’s gonna be me.” Chris pointed to a boy and his father playing basketball.

“You really think I’m having boy? You’re gonna be so mad when you’re waking up at two in the morning to feed your daughter.”

“What are you talking about?”

“Don’t you remember the bet we made?”

“Oh yeah. You have to change all my son’s diapers for a month when he comes.”

“There won’t be a "he” so I have nothing to worry about. If I was you I’d give up now.“


“Okay then suit yourself.”

“I’m gonna win.”

“You might but the odds are ever in my favor.”

“Alright Katniss.”

“I can’t wait until my appointment so I can see what my little baby is up to.”

“And I can’t wait to see if he’s packing like his dad.”

“Christopher Maurice!”

“What Robyn Rihanna?”

“First of all that’s nasty and second of all I have to be at least five months until you can see gentiles.”

“First of all who says gentiles? And second if my son is anything like me you’ll see his balls by the time you’re a month along.”

“Nuh uh.”

“Yeshuh. It takes time for something that long to grow so it starts as soon as your eggs gets fertilized.”

“Shut up. You’re so nasty.”

“But you love me right?”

“Just a little bit.” He pouted and folded his arms across his chest.

“Come here big baby.” I said before I grabbed his face and kissed him deeply. I swear I love this crazy boy.
