Chapter 1

Part 1

“RING, RING, RING... RING, RING, RING” Nytia groggily lifted her head from underneath her blanket to grab her phone. Rays of sunshine snuck in through the blinds and filled the room with light, temporarily blinding her. As she blinked rapidly, her eyes attuned to the light before she pulled the covers back over her head. She had just fallen asleep, and she wasn’t ready to be woken up yet. Nytia peaked at her screen to see who the offender was that was disturbing her sleep. She let out a loud sigh once she recognized the caller, knowing that if she didn’t pick up now that they would keep calling.

“South-side Burger King, home of the Whopper, what’s your beef?” Nytia yawned loudly, throwing the covers off her as she stretched with her phone held between the crook of her neck.

“Girl, I know you ain’t still sleeping!” Kheaira snapped. Nytia squinted her eyes as she glanced at her clock on the nightstand. It was barely 8:30 in the morning. Yes, she was still sleeping. She didn’t get to sleep until after four this morning. She got a call from a client a little after eleven last night as she was getting ready for bed and they were freaking out about their hair.

“WHAT do you want?” Making sure that she emphasized the what she rolled over on her side wrapping her arms around herself; phone laying on her face now.

“Did you hear about that party tonight at Intimate? It’s supposed to be littttt.” Kheaira sang into the phone. One word to describe Kheaira could be loud or turnt. Her personality could be just as loud as her mouth, if not worse. If she was quiet and not making unnecessary banter, something was wrong. Her constant sidebars were the equivalent of ad-libs in a song.

Nytia shook her head. Partying was the last thing on her mind right now. Not you waking me out of my sleep for nonsense, she thought; putting Kheaira on speaker to get on Instagram. “Girl, you know I heard about it. All the ballers’ and ratchets will be in full attendance tonight.” The yawn that escaped from her tickled her nose, so she rubbed it.

“Girl, you ain’t never lied.” Kheaira exclaimed excitedly, totally missing Nytia’s shade. “It’s all over the gram. Don’t tell me no, we’re going. It’s been forever since you went out! You shaking that lil’ booty tonight, bitch! So, get dressed so we can go to the mall. Call me when you’re on your way.” Kheaira said, rushing Nytia off of the phone before she could decline.

Nytia laid in bed for a few more moments, trying to wrap her mind around her sudden change in plans. A few moments ago, she was having one of the best sleeps of her life. Now she just laid there staring into her walk-in closet, trying to will an outfit into fruition. Hoping something in her closet would magically reveal itself to her, her mind was on the thought of going out tonight. A huge part of her wanted to just text Kheaira and cancel plans, but she knew she would never hear the end.
