Sometime had passed since Keturah's first night in Tej's bed, she still spent most nights of the week in his room, it made her feel safe. Her attitude had changed, she was no longer unhappy all the time, Keturah was back to her normal self.
Nikki was getting big and due in two months. She spent must of her days resting and being lazy, which normally wouldn't be hard for her to do, but she was starting to get restless.
It was Sunday afternoon and everyone was off from work. Mia and Brian had gone out for the day, trying to get some time alone. Everyone else was sitting around the living room. Vince and Jesse were playing video games while everyone else watched them. "I want to go shopping." Nikki said out of the blue. She was laying on the couch reading a magazine.
Keturah jumped up from where she was sitting on the floor, "Me too, can someone take us?"
"You guys don't need to go to mall," Dom said not looking away from the TV.
"Yes we do, I have like nothing for the baby." Nikki begged, although that was true, she really just wanted to get out of the house.
"Don't you think that's a little to strenuous activity for you," Vince asked looking up from the video game.
"Did I ask you?" Nikki stood up, put her hands on her hip and gave Dom her best puppy dog eyes. "I'm just gonna be walking around."
"Oh well in that case you don't need any money," Dom asked giving a little smirk.
"What? Yes we do," Keturah jumped into the conversation.
"Yeah, who goes to the mall of they can't buy anything?" Nikki asked.
"Yeah, who goes to the mall if they can't buy anything?" Vince mimicked and Nikki smacked him in the back of the head. Then turned to Dom, "Please."
Dom couldn't help but give in after looking at both the girl's puppy faces. "Fine, but your not going alone, whoever takes you has to stay with you the whole time." He was still worried about Keturah's father and he didn't want to give him a chance to hurt either girls.
"Jesse?" Nikki asked looking at her boyfriend and giving him the puppy dog eyes.
"I love you, but no, sorry. If it's not for cars, I don't shop." He answered without looking at Nikki.
"Is there a Taco Bell at the mall?" Rome asked.
"Yeah why, you want to take us?" Keturah asked getting excited.
"Yea let's go I'm hungry and we're eating before any shopping."
"Do you ever think of anything other food?" Letty asked and Rome ignored her questions, knowing everyone already knew the answer to it was no.
Rome got up from the couch and walked toward the door, yelling over his shoulder, "Let's go before I die of starvation." The girls both scurried after to him.
"Don't you need any money?" Dom called after them and they both ran back putting their hands out. He counted out $500 each and put the money in each girl's hand.
"Thanks," they said as they both kissed him on the cheek and ran out the door to catch up with Rome, before he left without them.
The drive to the mall was quick and quiet, except for the music blaring from the stereo. "Can we please shop first?" Nikki begged.
"Nope," Rome simply answered causing both girls to roll their eyes. Keturah and Nikki linked arms with Rome and walked to Taco Bell.
"What do you want, Nik?" Rome asked after both him and Keturah ordered.
She shook her head and Rome noticed she was looking a little pale. "I'm not hungry, my stomach doesn't feel right." She put a protective hand on her stomach.
Roman automatically got worried, went to the table, and pulled out a chair for Nikki to sit on, "Sit down."
She sat down taking deep breaths. Keturah looked at her worried, "Do you want to go home?"
Nikki tried to answer but was overcome by the pain in her stomach and winced in pain. "No, I think we should go to the hospital."
"What really?" Rome asked.
"Yeah, because my water just broke."
