Chapter 1

"When are you going to get a job? You need to get one soon." My mom told me again for the fifth time today.

"I know mom, it's not that easy." Erika was sleeping on the pull out sofa next to me. "She's beautiful." My mom smiled at me.

"She'd be even more beautiful if that lump wasn't in her stomach." She is always negative about everything and sometimes I can't take it. I cut my eyes at her and continued to stare at Erika. Her skin is mahogany color so soft and warm; eyes are almost lavender but not quite. Hair is a perfect shade of dark brown and falls down her perfect shoulders. I kissed her pink lips then her forehead. "Wake her up dinners ready." Mom told me. I did as she asked and we all ate dinner.

"Did you find a job yet?" Erika asked while she finished washing the dishes.

"Shop Rite hired me, part-time. T really didn't want to take the job but I really don't care what job I get at this point. We need to buy baby stuff so."After my mom went to her room I told Erika to sit at the table. "I have a quicker way on getting this money." She smiled.

"Really, how? Oh this is great?"

"Paul needs help with his next uhh withdrawal, if you get me." She shook her head. "Why not babe? All we have to do is stay in the car while they do what they have to do."

"That is exactly how you got arrested the last time. It's too risky and we probably won't even get half the money anyway."

"Paul is willing to give us more than half because you're pregnant." She seemed a little more interested now. She folded her arms and looked at me.

"Are you sure?" She raised an eyebrow. I nodded. "All we have to do is wait in the car?" I nodded again. "I'll think about it. Just don't tell him anything just yet. Cause I really can't do that much while I'm preggers." I laughed.

"Love you." She rolled her eyes.

"You better love me because I love you." I gave her a kiss. "I need to lay down or something, my back hurts."She laid on the pull out bed and I could tell, from her facial reaction, that she was uncomfortable. I lay by her and cuddle with her until I fell asleep.

When I woke up she was asleep. I fixed myself a bowl of cereal and sat down. I ate the cereal than I took a shower and got ready for my dumb job. Erika woke up so I told her I was going to work. I got to work 15 minutes late. The boss scolded me for my tardiness. After work I went home to change then I went to my friend Robs' house to pick up my clothes he brought for me. It was an all black outfit for the pick up in three weeks. I just hope I dont get caught.
