Chapter 6- The truth shall set us free "Do you love me?"
Huey was disappointed when Jazmine went riding home with Cindy instead of him. He was really hoping of getting a chance to talk to her. Huey wanted to know if what he was feeling was true. A knock on his car window disrupted him from his thoughts. Keisha stood outside of Huey's car waiting patiently for him to open the door.
"Where are Riley and Romell?" Huey asked as he unlocked the passenger's side.
"Oh they took the bus home. Don't ask why 'cause I ain't got a clue," answered Keisha.
Huey shrugged his shoulders and drove Keisha home. It was awkwardly quiet in the car. Usually Keisha will talk about anything but right now she was quiet. Huey knew she had something on her mind.
"Keisha if you've got something to say just say it," said Huey when he finally reached her house. He looked upon her worried face, knowing she couldn't hold what she had to ay anymore.
"Okay fine. Huey, I got a confession to make," Keisha started. "We've been friends for more than I know and…"
"And what?" Huey wanted to know. Keisha grabbed his hands and looked into his handsome face and quickly pressed her lips against his. Huey was stunned but then relaxed into her kiss.
"Huey, I just can't be friends with you. I want to be more than that," breathed Keisha.
Huey didn't say a word. He was replaying the moment again and again in his mind. Keisha turned his face and pulled him in for another kiss but he stopped her. "Huey, what's wrong?"
"So basically what you're trying to say is that you love me and you want us to be together?" Huey asked not sure of the situation.
"Well no, I don't love you like that yet but I do wants us to be together," Keisha said softly as she kissed Huey again.
Instantly, Huey pulled away from the kiss. "I'm sorry, I just can't,"
"You're not ready for a relationship are you?" Keisha said disappointedly.
"No it's not that, it's just-" Huey paused, trying to find the right words.
"Just what?" Keisha asked.
Huey sighed. "I just have my eyes set on someone else."
"It's Jazmine, isn't it?" Keisha said coldly.
Huey didn't say a word, looking straight ahead. "Huey, I've known since we were seven and then I move. We've been friends for three good years, Huey. I doubt your friendship with Jazmine's longer than ours," said Keisha.
"No, you're wrong," said Huey. "After you left a few months later I moved to Woodcrest. Seven years and it finally hit me in the face. I'm sorry, Keisha, I guess we're just not meant to be,"
"Yeah, I guess not," said Keisha as she quickly got out of his car and ran inside her house.
Huey drove over to his house and parked in the drive way. He went inside and saw Riley and Romell playing video games in the living room as usual.
"Huey, can you drop me off at the mall 'cause I needs to get some new stuff," said Riley.
"Yeah, I needed to get something anyway," replied Huey. "Where's Granddad?"
"He out on some date," answered Riley.
"With who?" asked Romell.
"Some skinny, white hoe," said Riley.
"Come on, Riley, lets go now," urged Huey.
"Aiight nigga hold up," said Riley as he began to press the buttons on his joystick furiously and a wide grin appeared on his face. "Game over,"
""Nah you cheated Riley!" yelled Romell.
"Stop hatin' nigga!" cried Riley. "I won and that's that."
"Let's go, Riley," said Huey, opening the door.
"You rollin' Romell?" asked Riley.
"Nah, I got things to do at home," said Romell as he and Riley did their handshake.
"Aiight," said Riley and he got into Huey's car was driven off to the mall.
"Oh you should get this top Jazz,"
"You think so? I don't want to look skanky,"
"Definitely not, you look fine,"
Cindy and Jazmine were at the mall, shopping for new clothes and hanging out. Usually, Cindy and Jazmine would go to the mall on Fridays but because there was nothing to do, they decided to go today.
"Are you sure?" asked Jazmine.
"Positive," assured Cindy.
"Okay just hold it for me. I'll be right back,"
"Where are you going?"
"I'm going to look at some jewelry," Jazmine replied.
"Oh okay. I'll look at some more clothes for you," offered Cindy.
"Good you do that." Jazmine left Cindy and went to Elie's Jewels. Whenever Jazmine go to that jewelry department she always looked at a particular item. It was a ring. A beautiful jade, green ring that was the same color as her eyes. To her dismay, the ring wasn't there. She checked everywhere and it could not be found.
"Someone already bought it," Jazmine said softly.
Jazmine continued to look at other rings and couldn't find any ring as beautiful as the one she wanted. However there was one ring that caught her eye. It was a beautiful sapphire ring.
"I can buy you that ring if you want it," said someone behind her. Jazmine turned around and saw that it was none other than A.J.
"Hey, A.J.," Jazmine said boredly.
"Hey there," he said smoothly. "I'll buy you that ring if you want?"
"Are you sure? I can tell that you want it. You've been starring at it for a while now." Said A.J.
"You've been following me?" asked Jazmine.
"Me follow you? No." said A.J.
"Then what do you want. Never mind, don't answer that," said Jazmine.
"Come one, Jazmine, I know you want me," A.J. said coolly.
"Like hell I do," she sneered. "This is getting annoying, A.J."
"Not really. I'm having fun and I want you to have fun with me." Said A.J., taking Jazmine's hands and walking out of Elie's Jewels with her.
"Let go of me," said Jazmine. "I'll have you know that I'm meeting my boyfriend here."
"Jazmine, I know you're lying.
"You have no poof of me lying,"
"I talked to Cindy and some other people and they told me that you're available." He lied.
"Now you're lying because I don't tell my business out like that and Cindy won't either." said Jazmine.
"Which means you're available." said A.J.
"For the last time I'm not and even if I was, I will never go out with you," said Jazmine as she continued to struggle from his firm grip.
"How come? Everybody loves A.J." he said grinning.
"Everybody except me. You're rude, obnoxious, stubborn…" While Jazmine continued naming insults to A.J., she spotted a familiar face heading the other direction and immediately she had an idea.
"You're in for it now since my boyfriend's right there," said Jazmine. A.J. turned around looking, loosening his grip on Jazmine's hand. This made it easy for Jazmine to catch A.J, off guard, so she punched him in the stomach and ran towards the direction of the familiar person.
"Dang, she got hands." Coughed A.J. and he ran after her.
Huey turned around to the sound of the familiar voice. It was Jazmine. Jazmine finally caught up with him.
"Hey, Jazmine you okay?" he asked.
"No I need your help." She said.
"Jazmine!" cried A.J.
"I'll explain later, just play along," she whispered.
"Play along with what?" asked Huey.
"Just do it," urged Jazmine.
"Hey, Huey," said A.J.
"Hey, A.J." he replied.
"Come on, Jazmine let's go," said A.J.
"Go where?" asked Huey.
"I'm just taking my girlfriend out that's all," said A.J.
"Girlfriend?!" said Huey and Jazmine.
"Yeah," A.J. replied.
Jazmine sighed. "Look, A.J. I already told you, I have a boyfriend and he's standing right here," Jazmine walked over to Huey's side and linked her arm to his.
"What?!" exclaimed Huey and A.J.
"Yeah that's right. Huey's my boyfriend." said Jazmine.
Huey was just as shocked as A.J. but had a good way of not showing it.
"Come on," she whispered.
Huey gave a fake cough, pulled Jazmine closer to him and said," Yeah, she's my girlfriend,"
Silence were among the three teens, waiting for A.J.'s response. "This is so awkward," Huey thought.
"I hope he's buying it," Jazmine silently prayed to herself.
"I don't believe this," said A.J., shaking his head. "I'm not buying this at all. Jazmine, come on, stop playing around and let's go." He took Jazmine's arm pulling her away from Huey.
"Get off of me," said Jazmine.
"A.J., what the hell are you doing? Get off of my girl," yelled Huey, releasing Jazmine from A.J.'s grip and pulling her behind him. "I don't want you anywhere near her. This is only a warning,"
"Yeah like you're going do to anything about it. You're nothing but a punk," said A.J. as he pushed Huey out of his way. Normally, Huey's not the type to let one push get to him, but as of this moment, he really didn't care. "Alright, you two can do your little boyfriend girlfriend charade. But eventually, Jazmine you will be mine," said A.J. He walked up to Jazmine grinned and gave her a quick and soft kiss on the lips. "Later honey."
Shock rose to Jazmine's face while anger rose to Huey's. "Later honey my ass," said Huey and he punched A.J. in the face. A.J. spit blood on the floor, charged at Huey and the fight began. He suddenly got two hits at Huey, one in the face and the stomach.
"Damn!! Beat his ass, Huey!" yelled someone out of no where. Huey recognized the voice of his little brother and smirked. He quickly recovered and threw many punches at A.J. and got him kneeling on the floor. Huey picked A.J. up and was about to give him the finishing blow until…
"You drop that nice white boy ya lil monkey," someone shouted. Huey turned around and noticed that there was a huge crowd around them watching the fight and Uncle Ruckus running towards him with his walkie-talkie.
"Jazmine!" Cindy shouted over the raging noise of the crowd as she made her way through Jazmine's side. "Are you okay?"
"Yeah, I'm fine," answered Jazmine.
"I said drop the boy," said Uncle Ruckus.
Huey dropped A.J. and the crowd started breathing apart. Riley ran over to Huey. He looked down at A.J. and started cracking up. "DAMN!! YOU GOT KNOCKED THE-," Riley started but then saw the look Huey gave him. "Never mind," he finished.
"I'm taking yall lil black asses to jail," said Ruckus.
"Why do we gotta go to jail?" asked Huey as he and Riley were being dragged away by Ruckus.
"Come one, Jazmine I'll drop you home," said Cindy
"Wait, I got to go and see if Huey's alright," persisted Jazmine.
"He's fine, let's go," insisted Cindy as she pulled her away from the crowd.
"You know, Riley, you kind of over did it," said Huey. Riley and Huey were now safely back home after escaping the mall from Ruckus.
"Well at least we ain't goin to jail," Riley proclaimed.
"Either way, we weren't going to jail since he doesn't have the power to do so."
"Whatever man, I had fun. Anyway, why was you fighting that nigga?"
"I have my reasons," answered Huey. "I'm going out for a walk. I'll be back later."
Huey slowly walked up the hill and sat under the tree. He began to play the fight over and over in his head. When fighting A.J., Huey felt as if he really wanted to protect Jazmine from any harm. What confused him the most was when he proclaimed Jazmine was his girl. Even though he only said it just to play along, somehow it felt real. After a few more minutes of pondering, Huey got up getting ready to go but he stopped, noticing a figure walking up the hill towards.
"Huey," It was Jazmine. Jazmine ran up the hill and gave Huey a hug. Huey gently wrapped his arms around her and held her tight, not wanting to let go.
"Jazmine are you okay?" he asked with a concerned tone in his voice.
"Yeah what about you?" Jazmine asked with the same tone. She softly touched his face. "You have a bruise."
"It's nothing big Jazmine, just a small bruise," Huey replied.
"But you're hurt."
"Jazmine, I'm fine, really."
Jazmine still had her hand on his face. Realizing her actions she quickly pulled her hand away blushing hard. Jazmine felt different around Huey. She felt safe, knowing that he will protect her from any harm.
"I" they both started.
"You go first," said Huey.
"Huey, I-" she paused. "Thank you, for protecting me from
"I'll always be here to protect you Jazz, whenever you need me." Huey said.
Then he asked, "Jazmine, can I ask you something?"
"Sure," she nodded.
"I want to know how you truly feel about me, your true feelings,"
"What?" Jazmine asked startled by the question. She knew exactly what Huey said and what he meant.
"Nothing, never mind," Huey said walking down the hill. "I gotta go, see you later."
"You want to know how I truly feel about you, Huey Freeman. Fine, I'll tell you!" Jazmine shouted. "I love you okay?!" Jazmine tried to be strong and hold back her tears but she couldn't and let everything, tears and feelings out. "I loved you ever since we were little. A t first I thought it was a little crush, nothing big, but it is. I thought it'll pass over but my love for you never left. From the moment we got older my feelings got stronger. I wanted to tell you but I knew you just wouldn't feel the same way and seeing you hanging out with Keisha proved my point."
Jazmine closed her eyes and just stood there, letting the tears fall. She then felt something warm against her face. Jazmine opened her eyes and gazed upon Huey's face. He wiped her tears away, leaned forward and softly pressed his lips softly against hers. Shock rushed to Jazmine's face as she took in the kiss. She then closed her eyes and kissed Huey back.
Huey stopped the kiss, leaned down on one knee and took a small box from his pocket and opened it. Jazmine eyes grew and gasped at the sight before her. It was a small ring with the tip of it being jade green. It was the same ring Jazmine stared at all the time at the mall.
"Huey, how did you- I- the money-"
"I knew how much you wanted it so I've been saving money and bought it today."
"That's why it wasn't there when I looked for it," Jazmine thought.
"Jazmine, I know I don't usually open up o you, but I'm letting you know right now that I love you with all my heart and I want us to be together. Will you be my girlfriend?"
Jazmine smiled and cried again. "Yes," she said. "I'll be your girlfriend." For the first time in Jazmine's life she saw Huey grin. Huey slipped the ring on Jazmine's finger. He got up and kissed her again but this time with more passion. She melted into his kiss, feeling better than before.
"You promise that we will be together forever?" said Jazmine.
"Forever, promise," Huey replied as they walked hand in hand down the hill.
