A/N: Just a lil preview to Cindy's Boys!
Cindy McPherson grew up a lot. She was no longer that out of control wigger the gang came to know of through a basketball game. She was still a tough little cookie just more sure of herself. She and Jazmine became friends during a school play. I didn't get as annoyed with her when she stopped talking like Riley. Riley, however, didn't chill with her as much. Caesar joined the crew and at first he didn't seem to like Cindy. After they spoke about music that changed rather quickly. Once Caesar started giving Cindy attention and she became his home girl, Riley came back into the picture.
It was the night of Jazmine's actual sweet sixteen. She wore the dress Riley stole her hair and quite frankly she looked amazing in it. I sat at the table mostly as I hated parties. Jazmine didn't mind she did a lot of running around anyway. Between the dancing, photos, and long chats the girls heels would soon give out and I'd be rubbing those mulato feet by the end of the night. I didn't mind though because she said she'd return the favor. Though I didn't want to think dirty. I'd be lying if I didn't.
Cindy walked over to me, "Have you seen your brother?"
I glanced up at her remembering that I saw him in the parking lot flirting, "No." I lied, "Sorry." I didn't lie.
Cindy saddened, "Okay." She smiled weakly at me, "Thanks."
I nodded as she walked off.
Caesar came out of nowhere leaning on my chair. I glanced up at him not allowing him to know he caught me off guard.
"Congratz with Jazzy."
I hated showing all this emotion because of that damn girl but I smiled, "Thanks."
Caesar watched Cindy from across the room, "This is killin' me man."
I closed my eyes and let out a low sigh before opening my eyes again, "Look. You're my best friend and Riley's my little brother. I'm not taking any sides on this…But if you really love her then fight for her."
Caesar pulled away with a small smirk on his face.
I looked back over at him, "Riley's in the parking lot. Go."
Caesar eyed me, "I thought you weren't takin' sides."
"You gonna take the head start or not?"
Caesar laughed a bit, "Thanks man." And walked over to Cindy.
Caesar walked over to me. His hand was in one pocket of his dark blue slacks. He looked so good tonight but so did Riley. I smiled at him when he stopped in front of me. He put his hand out to me and asked, "Wanna dance?"
I did want to dance but I was waiting to dance with Riley. I looked around the room and still couldn't find him. I sighed and put my hand out to his with a weak smile, "Sure."
He pulled me close as soon as our hands touched. I felt my face burn up a bit. I hated that he could make me blush so easily. Sometimes it felt he was just toying with me like Riley did. Is. He smiled looking down at me he chuckled a bit, "Girl you need to loosen up a bit."
I saddened then felt his hand go down my back, "Relax…" he said softly giving me chills.
My heart didn't feel so tight. So, I leaned down and rested my head on his tone chest. He was so warm…but so was Riley, "Caesar…"
My eyelids lowered, "I can't keep doing this. I can't fool around with you anymore."
He didn't speak.
"I love him and this is wrong."
Caesar breathed in deeply, "Cindy…"
I lifted my head up, "No. I mean it this time. Please…don't make this hard for me." I glanced away unable to look into his eyes.
"Eyy, what da fuck is this?" Riley walked over with a drink.
My body jumped as I turned over to Riley. He raised an eyebrow looking at me then at Caesar. Caesar smiles at him smugly.
"You don't wanna dance with me so I danced with Caesar." I shrugged. I mean it was a low blow but it was the truth.
Riley rolled his eyes, "Dancin's gay. So I guess you gay now Caesar. I mean Huey got Jaz now. Who you got?"
Caesar looked over at me playfully. My eyes widened as my heart sank, Don't you dare.
He chuckled as if hearing my mind's voice. He backed away from us waving his hands, "Yo man she's all yours." He glanced over at me with a slight smirk then walked away.
I watched him walk back over to Huey then looked up at Riley. I loved Riley, I really did. But as he drank his obvious alcoholic drink I wondered…was I really in love with him?
