I'm back and once again in Lettie's POV

" DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! DO IT!" my family chanted I groaned I was being forced into singing I turned to my boyfriend for help but he just smiled an oh so smug smile...

" We'll even be your background singers." Neffie said

" Oh, please Cookie I haven't heard that beautiful singing voice of yours in such a long time..." My grandma pleaded

I sighed givung up " What do you want me to sing?" I asked

" Oh, sing a disney song!" Mari exclaimed

"No sing The lulluby Longie sings to us!" Carmen chimed in from Kiba's lap

I laughed at my little cousins' antics but I noticed that Cierra didn't make her suggestions " What about you Cierra?" I asked

" I liked that one song that you and Kiba were singing...." she answered What song were me and Kiba singing?

" Hm about I sing the three songs that you three suggested; I'm going to sing my favorite Disney song first." I said and i ran back to get my remix version I had one made without words I pressed play and began to sing

You think you own whatever land you land on
The earth is just a dead thing you can claim
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name

You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You'll learn things you never knew you never knew

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or ask the grinning bob cat why he grins
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountain
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind

I smiled this was my favorite part in the song:

Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
Come taste the sun-sweet berries of the earth
Come roll in all the riches all around you
And for once never wonder what they're worth

The rainstorm and the river are my brothers
The heron and the otter are my friends
And we are all connected to each other
In a circle of a hope that never ends

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or let the eagle tell you where he's been
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountain
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind

How high does the sycamore grow
If you cut it down then you'll never know
And you'll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
For whether we are white or copper skinned
We need to sing with all the voices of the mountain
We need to paint with all the colors of the wind

You can own the earth and still
All you own is earth until
You can paint with all the colors of the wind

Everybody was so happy to hear me sing they clapped and applauded then I changed to the next song a lulluby my grandma used to always sing to me

A la nanita nana nanita A la nanita nana nanita ella

Mi nina tiene sueno bendito sea,bendito sea

A la nanita nana nanita A la nanita nana nanita ella

Mi nina tiene sueno bendito sea,bendito sea

Fuentecita que carre clara y sonara

Ruisenor que en la selva

Cantando illora

Calla mientras la cuna se balansea

A la nanita nana nanita ella

A la nanita nana nanita ella

Nanita ella

Mi nina tiene sueno bendito

Sea, bendito sea

Fuentecita que carre clara y sonora

Ruisenor que en la selva

Cantando illora

Calla mientras la cuna se balonsea

A la nanita nana nanita ella

(Translation: To the nanita grandma, nanita to, nanita she, nanita she
My Girl has blessed sleep be, blessed be
To the nanita grandma, nanita to, nanita she, nanita she
My Girl has blessed sleep be, blessed be
Fuentecita that runs clear and sonorous
Nightingale that in the forest singing cries
He keeps silent meanwhile about the cradle balansea
To the nanita grandma, nanita she
To the nanita grandma nanita she nanita she
My Girl has blessed sleep be, blessed be
Fuentecita that runs clear and sonorous
Nightingale that in the forest they sing)

" You still remeber that after all these years.." Longie mused

" She sings it every night before she goes to sleep." Kiba said I blushed I was going to have to get him for that.

" Moving on..." I said before we could dwell on the subject " Ready Kiba?"

he sighed I guess he's mad for me dragging him into this but oh well he'll get over it " As ready as I'll ever be." was his reply

Kiba:

Do you hear me,
I'm talking to you
Across the water across the deep blue ocean
Under the open sky, oh my, baby I'm trying

Me:

Boy I hear you in my dreams
I feel your whisper across the sea
I keep you with me in my heart
You make it easier when life gets hard

Both:

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Ooohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

Me with Kiba echoing this part:

They don't know how long it takes
Waiting for a love like this
Every time we say goodbye
I wish we had one more kiss
I'll wait for you I promise you, I will

Both:

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Lucky we're in love every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

Kiba:

And so I'm sailing through the sea
To an island where we'll meet
You'll hear the music fill the air
I'll put a flower in your hair

Me:

Though the breezes through trees
Move so pretty you're all I see
As the world keeps spinning round
You hold me right here right now

Both:

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
I'm lucky we're in love every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

Ooohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooooh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

I smiled as we finished the song

" You know you two should sing together more often." Jaun said

Me and Kiba shared a look and then we all started laughing...Then" Whoa!" I said as I was toppled to the ground I qurickly realized it was Tsume and started laughing as we started wrestling on the floor. " Tsume!"

" Yes?" he answered too sweetly as he put me in a head lock

" I'll get you..." I said switching our postions so that HE was in the headlock " HA!"

" Damn" he muttered I laughed

" Alright, alright you two calm down before someone loses an eye," Longie

We obeyed without a word and we all moved to sit on the couch...well not all of us...then as we relaxed and settled down I felt a strange tension from Neffie

" You know Lettie..." Neffie started I looked at her suspicously " No let me rephrase that...tell me why you're the only one Longie lets call her Grandma..." what the hell kind of question is that?

I shrugged " I don't know...but then again I'm not the person to be asking..." I answered dryly feeling an argument rising...why must everytime we come togther Neffie has to start some drama? Who knows?

" Beacause you're her favorite..." I detected abit of bitterness in her words

" Now Neffie you know I love you all equally---" she started

" Well you sure don't act like it!!" Neffie exclaimed

I could tell this was going in a dirction that was definantly not for little kids..." Um. Carmen, Cierra, Mari why don't you go upstairs...you can play on my laptop..." I said motioning for Kiba to take them upstairs

"Come on girls..." he said

Once the girls were upstairs all hell broke loose. " You think that just because everything was handed to you on a silver platter and you were raped that you're so special!" Neffie exclaimed My eyes widened then returned to normal but I said nothing

" You know what Neffie, let's not talk about it anymore I'm getting angry and...whatever...just shut up...." I said

" Yeah Neffie that's below the belt.." Tsume said

"Neffie what's come over you?" Grandma asked

" Oh, and another thing you always run away...if it's not what you want to hear you run away...and tune it out..." She said by now she was standing up and she was in my face....So slowly and oh so calmly I stood up...I picked up the nearest thing to me which just hapened to be a vase and threw it against the wall in anger.

" Pardon my french, but DAMMIT NEFFIE!!!! You always do this shit!!" I exclaimed " You think I'm proud of being raped?!?!?! If that's what you think then you've got another thing coming..." I said anger clear in my voice" Just because you have issues and problems you think you can take your anger out on me! And that's not fair! You made mistakes and you're feeling sorry for them, but you don't want to admit it so you're taking it out on me!!!! You're always trying to evaluate Lettie but you don't ever take time out to evaluate yourself and deal with your shit!" I exclaimed " But me Lettealia I have issued too, but i'm dealing with them so I don't end up like you!" my voice cracked" You're always tellin somebody else to figure it out...YOU figure it out, Neffie, you figure it out...Lettie's done. Next time you want to take your shit out on me...it's gonna come to blows cause i'm sick of it; maybe if I crack you in the jaw one good time you'll get it....I'm done it's over with..." I said walking out of the house slamming the door behind I got that off my chest.

I walked around the neighbor hood a few times, not really watching where I was going. I looked up and I was at the park. I walked around and watched all the children play and swing on swings remebering when I used to do that...So much has happened the last year and a half months or whatever....I'm learning so much about myself and I know I'm changing and growing...it's so weird. I climbed on the monkey bars and hung upside downfun,fun,fun!

" Aren't you going to get a headache?" came a familiar voice

" It's totally possible..." I said as Kiba came into sight

he smiled " You feeling better?" he asked me

" I guess but I'm not ready to go home just yet...Neffie might get on my nerves" he leaned against the pole

" Yeah, well she and Tsume are arguing now...Longie is trying to tune it out...she doesn't like it...J.L. he's.....well I don't know what he's doing...." I giggled and climbed doen from the bars landing gracefully on my feet. I walked over to him snaking my arms around his neck his hands slid into my back pockets. I smiled at him.

" Guess what...I'm over it." I said " But I will not apologize for what I said because I was right and I meant what I said." I said smugly

he smiled again and kissed my lips softly " That's my girl..." he said proudly " So...you gonna tell me what your dress looks like?" he asked off-handly HA! nice try

" Nope...nice try though..." he fake pouted cutely " I'll tell you one thing though..."

" What?"

" It's red...and strapless....easy access..." I added suggestivly

" Hmmmmm....I like it already. Tomrrow's the big day...are you nervous?"

" I don't really know yet....everybody's gonna want to put money on my shirt tomrrow..." I giggled " Then we have to come home, then go to the church and set everyhing up....let me stop I'm getting a headache." I said Kiba chuckled " I love you."

" I love you too." he said before kissing my lips.

The Next Day

I woke this morning ecstatic! Today's my birthday I have put all of yesterday's drama behind me and now I'm just focused on having a good time!!! I was the first one up and I immediatly began to get ready. I had on a black babyphat key hole shirt with the signature cat on the side some chain belted chambray denim cargo pants with some black babyphat heels. I had let my hair air dry which resulted in it becoming very poofy and very curly I put a grip of hair gel on the front and put a head band on, finally taking Kiba's advice. I wore some gold babyphat bangles and the logo gold hoop earrings. And the finishing touch, my glasses. Now I know that they're only supposed to be for reading but I think that black frames and the rectangle lenses match the outfit.

( A/N: On profile )

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ME!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOH!!!!!

My phone vibrated on the nightstand and I answered while smiling at Kiba's sleeping face. He looked so sweet and innocent. " Hello?" I answered

" Happy Birthday!" Ah, it was my friend Jessica

" Thankyou...." I answered sweetly

" Are you excited about your party?" she asked

" Totally." I answered as I did this Kiba woke up with a yawn I smiled and mouthed a good morning he smiled and began kissing my neck I giggled

" What's so funny?" Jessica asked from the other line

" Kiba just woke up...." I answered

" Oh...." she said slowly " OH! "

" You wanna say hi?"

" Uh...sure" she stuttered I put the phone speaker

" Say hi Kiba." I said with a grin

" Hey.." he said with a smirk of his own God I loved his voice in the morning; husky, sexy and mine.

" H-hey--Coming Mom!" she called " I'll see you guys at school..." she said quickly then hung up...

" Oh Kiba you dazzled her away..." I said with a giggle

" Oh well....Happy Birthday, you look beautiful." he said

My grin grew " Thankyou..." was my answer We didn't say anything for I don't know how long but i had to ask " Plan on getting up?"

" Can't." he anwered simply

I raised an eyebrow " Why not?"

" I'm lost in your eyes.." he said with a sigh

I couldn't help the blush that crept across my cheeks " You're too kind..." He sat up and stretced " That's my man" I said

His eyes twinkled " I like that." he said

" What? That you're my man?" he nodded I laughed then left him to get ready...

I went downstairs where I found Tsume. Not in leather but in a white beater and some grey sweat pants saggin at that; his hair out of that ponytail it only came to his chin but I laughed. " Happy birthday." he said

" Thanks." he came over to me with a safety pin and stuck a hundred dollar bill on my shirt with it. Yawza! Ain't that something. " Thanks Tsume," I said hugging him he hugged me back but he seemed machanical " What's wrong?" I asked him

he shook his head " I just broke up with Jade," he said

I looked at him in shock " Why?" I asked " I liked that one." I exclaimed he shrugged

" I'm taking a break from dating." he said His love life must really suck

The rest of that morning everyone gave me money. Kiba gave me a fifty, grandma fifteen, J.L . gave me twenty, Yoland Gave me twenty, Alendro gave me a fifty, everone at school gave me tens and fives. Me and Neffie haven't spoken so I didn't get anything from her...yet.

" So are you black today?" Andrea asked

I raised and eyebrow confused. Me and her have been known not to get along but I am vey confused as to what she was talking about." What?" I asked

" Are you black today or are you white today?" she asked again " I mean like...." What a racist comment....

" I'm me..." I answered " I've always been me." I answered

" Yeah whatever..." Okay so her attitude is so weird...oh well she's just jealous because today's not her birthday.

" Wow...I'm surprised you didn't say anything..." Jessica said

" Please it's my birthday, but it does kind of bother me that she said that because, I am part African American,part White, and mostly Mexican; Mexican is what I grew up as, Mexican."

" Which side..." she ask

" I think that Hatsume said our mother was part Black and part Mexican that Dad was part White and part Mexican or vise versa." I answered

" Well she basically called you fake and you not doing anything is a big accomplishment for you." Toni said joing the conversation

" It doesn't matter. I know I'm real. It don't get no realer than this." I answered pointing to myself "Besides it's my special day and she is not going to ruin that." I said with a confedent smile

The rest of the day went by as a blur because I was so excited about my Quinceanera! Kiba met me at my locker and the question popped in my head as we walked to his truck. "Kiba can you waltz?" I asked

"...." he was silent

" Kiba...."

" Not exactly, buuuut we'll wing it..." he said trying to sound offhanded

" This should be interesting." I said

TBC....and please R&R thnks^_^
