Maya was well aware that this was mostly her fault but he was partly to blame too. Neither of them were going to apologise but she felt like her turning up to give him some of his things but also to just see him meant at least something. As she knocked on the door she heard some scuffling inside. It sounded like maybe an animal and now she was excited.


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL May 3 2018, 07:57 PM
It was becoming clear that they weren't going to make this truly right, that nothing was going to really get fixed, they weren't going to sit down and apologize and try to be better. His fucking feelings were hurt and she told her brother to shoot him but he missed her and he was glad she was coming over, even if it was just to drop something off. He had been playing around with his new puppy in his new apartment when there was a knock on the door and he went to answer it. "Hey girl." He said with a small grin, he missed her face. "C'mon." he reached over and gently pulled her inside so he could quickly close the door before the little rottie puppy tried to escape.


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE May 3 2018, 08:13 PM
"Hey..." she smiled back at him as she made her way in. It was nice to see him smile, she hadn't really been sure what to expect so this was nice. "Did you get a dog or something? I definitely heard a dog or something..." Not that she wasn't happy to see him but like, dog.


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL May 3 2018, 08:25 PM
"Yeah I did." he looked around in time to see the puppy run out of his bedroom. "Hey Bear, come here." he crouched down and scooped up the dog, holding him like a baby to show Maya. "I never lived alone so I got someone to keep me company. His name is Bear." Honestly he was very lonely and this felt like a good fix.


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE May 4 2018, 06:09 PM
"Oh my God" she grinned, clearly excited. Dogs were the best. "He's cute..." Now she wanted a dog but she was about to have classes and work so she couldn't really have one. "Ooo" she muttered, pressing her hands to her stomach, "the baby's moving... do you-do you want to feel?"


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL May 4 2018, 06:17 PM
He didn't really smile often, not real smiles, but he was smiling right now. He just really liked his dog. He never really felt unconditional love before. "Yeah he's super cute." He was going to spoil the shit out of this dog. His expression hardened briefly in concern before it softened and he nodded. "Yeah, yeah." Of course he did. He held the puppy under his arm and used his free hand to rest on her stomach. "That shit is still weird as fuck." There was an alien in her.


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE May 4 2018, 06:48 PM
Maya placed her hands on top of his as he touched her stomach, "right?" she laughed a little bit, "it's so fucking weird... he's so damn active at night now too, he just won't settle down." It was driving her sort of insane but it was coming to an end soon and she was starting to get nervous about it.


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL May 4 2018, 06:57 PM
He was pretty used to kids and babies but he was almost never around pregnant woman, this was so weird. "He's a night owl." He said with a small grin. It would be over soon and then she'd probably never have to deal with it again.


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE May 4 2018, 07:23 PM
"Mhm..." she smiled, sighing a bit, "anyway here's the thing..." The thing that she was bringing over because it was his and he'd missed it when he essentially broke into her house to get his stuff. She rummaged around in her bag to find it before handing it over.


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL May 4 2018, 07:37 PM
You can't break into a house when you have a key. She's never getting that key back. He put down the dog and took whatever it was he left, keeping his other hand on her stomach because he did very much miss her. "Thanks. You busy? You wanna hang out? I gotta give you the tour." He had his own place!


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE May 4 2018, 07:55 PM
"Uhm no... I'm not busy" she smiled a little bit. Although he'd been an asshole and she'd told her brother to shoot him the last time they saw each other she'd still missed him. "Oh yeah, I'm not leaving without the tour..."


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL May 4 2018, 08:07 PM
He smiled back, leaning in to kiss her cheek. He was angry about getting shot and it being her fault but this was still his girl. "Aiight so this is the living room. I'm gonna hang some art on the walls. I got that big ass couch because I know Bear is gonna get huge." He had a nice size tv mounted on the wall and a nice little entertainment system underneath it. "The kitchen is over there, whatever." He didn't cook much, he could make very few things.


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE May 11 2018, 09:33 PM
"Dude your TV is amazing..." It really was, she was impressed. She took a minute to get to the kitchen with her waddle but she managed. He may not be interested in the kitchen but she was. Maya paused and rested her hands on top of her bump. "I'm so tired... everything is exhausting."


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL May 11 2018, 10:04 PM
"Yeah, it's nice. I can get you one like that if you want." He knew her. He knew she'd probably say no but he of course would always offer. He stood beside her the whole time with his hand on her back, having already put whatever she brought over down. "I bet. You got a fucking alien inside of you. If you want to sit down I'll get you whatever you want." He was still mad and he wanted an apology but she was still his pregnant girlfriend and he'd always try to take care of her.


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE May 11 2018, 10:16 PM
"It's okay..." she shrugged. Maya wouldn't take money off him, she never had and wouldn't start now. "If I sit down I literally won't be able to get back up..." she laughed, taking hold of his hand, "Andrew is a fucking pussy, I really didn't think he'd do it..."


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL May 11 2018, 10:24 PM
"You can say yes sometimes." Honestly he would just go in there and replace the tv when she was in school one day. Or just have Adam go to the store with him. He grinned a bit. "C'mon you act like I can't still pick you up." he said with a grin, looking down at their hands when she took his. "Well he did cuz you told him to." He wasn't trying to start anything but that's what happened. "Also, racist."


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE May 11 2018, 10:33 PM
"You think Andrew ever actually listens to what I say?" she asked, eyebrow raised as she looked at him, "he's not a racist either... he's just fucking dumb and couldn't think of another way to try and insult you." The guy was stupid, he attacked the obvious. "If you hadn't started shouting about how you'd dogged me raw then none of it would've happened."


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL May 11 2018, 10:41 PM
"I don't fucking know. I don't know you're brother." He didn't know those other two. He only knew Adam because he lived in the house with her but they didn't talk much. He didn't know anything about her brothers. "If you told your family to chill the fuck out and not blame me for shit none of this would have happened. You can't take some of the blame? You can't tell that motherfuck that I try to do stuff for you and you don't let me?" It wasn't like he had abandoned her or refused to help. He was so good and she couldn't defend him?


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE May 11 2018, 11:11 PM
"Well he's a fucking idiot..." Just in case he hadn't caught it the first time. "They don't listen to me, nobody ever fucking listens to me!" To be fair Andrew never actually listened to anybody. "I was gonna but then you started disrespecting me in front of my entire damn family! I won't let any man do that." Maya looked out for herself, she always had so she wasn't going to let anyone talk shit about her. "That being said... I really didn't think he'd actually shoot you... so I'm sorry he did, but not sorry too because you were an asshole and I didn't deserve to be humiliated in front of everybody..."


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL May 11 2018, 11:25 PM
"Then I shouldn't have been there." If no one listened to her and they were going to treat him like shit than she shouldn't have made him come. "Yeah I don't let anyone disrespect me! How long I've known you and I never meet your brother and he's gonna come at me?" He had let his dad shit on him constantly and and he wasn't letting anyone else ever talk down to him again. He sighed and let go of her hand to rub his forehead. "I didn't deserve to get shot but whatever. Everyone can talk to me however the fuck they want but when I get angry back I'm the wrong one, I get it and I can't argue with you cuz you're better than me and you're pregnant. Whatever. You want something to drink or not?" He missed her and if he kept arguing with her than he wouldn't see her again until the baby came probably so he'd just get over his feelings.


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE May 12 2018, 11:16 AM
"If a guy came into Camila's house with you and all the rest of you guys there and started talking about how he rawed Mali or Kay you wouldn't have a little something to say about it?" She asked, eyebrow raised and arm crossed. "I don't have an issue with you standing up for yourself Damian but I don't see why you felt the need to disrespect me too... I would've had your back if you'd have given me a chance to." Maya was really getting pissed over it again but she was trying not to be because she was here and just wanted the past to be the past. "I'll have water or something..." she muttered, waiting till he'd walked off a bit to hug him from behind... well try to, the bump meant her arms barely wrapped around him.


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL May 12 2018, 11:32 AM
"I didn't just start though. I was just chillin until he got in my face." He hadn't gone over there with any intention other than getting some free food and sitting in the corner and maybe selling some weed. "Okay fine I'm sorry for dragging on you like that but I was angry." he grumbled. When he got angry and defensive he just said awful shit that should stay in his head. He stepped away to grab a cup from the cabinet when her arms came around him and he stopped in his tracks, running his hand over her arm. " You shoulda came over earlier..." he had missed her.


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE May 12 2018, 11:51 AM
Maya didn't like the but in the apology but whatever, she'd take it. "I didn't know if you'd want me to..." Her brother had shot him after all, she wasn't sure she'd want to see him if the shoe was on the other foot. "I wanted to but I wasn't sure..."


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL May 12 2018, 12:02 PM
He sighed heavily and hung his head. Despite how hard things were lately he still liked her so much. He just wanted to he around her. "You coulda asked. Seen if I was okay or something." he probably wouldn't have been too receptive right away but it was nice to feel cared about. "you're still my girl, Maya. You'd know if I didn't want you around."


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE May 12 2018, 12:30 PM
"I knew you were okay... I checked." Through the grapevine and all. Maya was a very stubborn person, she didn't want to be the first to break. "I thought you letting yourself into my place and taking your stuff was a sign..."


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL May 12 2018, 12:58 PM
It would have been nice to know that she had checked, that she cared. "I didn't think you wanted me around." okay so obviously they needed to actually talk more instead of being stubborn and alone. He turned around to face her. "I'm just tired of getting in fights with you and not having a place to sleep and we weren't talking. I just thought it'd be easier if you weren't home, it wasn't a lot of stuff anyway. But I'm still in this." he wanted to still be with her.


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE May 13 2018, 09:20 PM
"I do, I really do it's just this..." she pointed to her stomach, "makes me literally crazy." It really was. She was not a happy pregnant woman, it was rough and it made her nothing but miserable. "I'm still in this too... I don't mean to be an asshole."


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL May 14 2018, 06:40 AM
"I've noticed." her whole entire mood changed when she got pregnant. He knew that it had to be hormones but she was just so mean it was hard to care about that excuse sometimes. "I can't wait for this shit to be over." he said as he gave her a kiss on the forehead. "I liked you way more when you were actually nice to me." a dumb bad joke but he was not great with jokes.


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE May 25 2018, 07:16 PM
"Me too... I'm so ready for all this to be over" she smiled up at him. Maya took hold of his hand and squeezed it, "I liked that better too..." She sighed a bit, "I miss having fun, being fun..."


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL May 25 2018, 07:42 PM
He talked quite a lot of shit about her to people lately but at the end Maya was still his best friend and he just missed hanging out with her. So despite being a naturally frowny person he still smiled back at her. "Girl we gonna have some fun after this. Actually go somewhere. Where you want me to take you for your graduation present?" He was making money now, they didn't have to wander the city and hang out in parks anymore. "And don't be fucking difficult about it, let me take you somewhere." Let him spend some money on her.


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE Jun 1 2018, 01:46 PM
Of course he talks shit about her, he's so mean. "Yeah?" she smiled up at him, playing with the tips of his fingers with hers. "When am I difficult?!" Maya laughed. All the time because she didn't like people paying for her. She had her own money, she didn't need charity but she appreciated the gesture so she was trying to be nice about it. "I don't mind where we go... where do you wanna go?"


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL Jun 1 2018, 03:07 PM
He is fairly nice to her. She's the cold mean one. "You right, I'm lying, you're super easy to deal with and do things for." he joked with a grin, letting her play with his fingers. He missed touching her. He wasn't really trying to spoil her or anything but he had all this money now that he didn't know what to do with and he thought he should spend some of it on someone he liked. He was buying himself all these clothes and jewelry and he could buy some for her. "I dunno, Disneyland? I never been there. We could go to Catalina Islands or the Grand Canyon. Get some passports and I'll take you to Mexico."


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE Jun 1 2018, 09:53 PM
"Woah... that's a lot of options" she smiled, moving away to sit down because she was tired and she didn't want to stand anymore. "I don't mind... I'll go wherever you want to go." Maya had never been anywhere outside of Ashwick so she really wasn't picky.


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL Jun 1 2018, 10:05 PM
He let her pull away and he finished getting her something to drink before following her to the couch. Before he even got over there the dog had jumped on it and gotten all in her face, he was a friendly puppy. "It's be for your graduation, don't make me pick the place. You got time though." He said as he wrapped his arm around her shoulders. They didn't have to rush to plan a trip but he wanted to do something nice for her because she was graduating and she deserved something nice.


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE Jun 1 2018, 10:21 PM
Maya was very happy the puppy was on the sofa too. She liked the dog a lot. "You can't surprise me?" she asked, leaning against him as his arm wrapped around her. "This is nice... I missed it." She'd missed him a lot.


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL Jun 1 2018, 10:36 PM
"Wow, you want a surprise? You are such a girl sometimes. I guess I can do that." He teased with a dramatic groan. He was taking her ass to Disneyworld. That sounded fun. "It is. I missed you." he said honestly before kissing her. He missed her a lot. She was his best friend and he missed talking to her.


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE Jun 1 2018, 10:48 PM
"What? I'm a girl?" she asked, pretending to be shocked, "well now the pregnant thing makes sense..." Maya grinned before laughing. She could be fun sometimes. It was just hard with a whole bunch of hormones and stress she had going on. "I missed you too, a lot, a whole lot..." she leaned in to kiss him back.


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL Jun 1 2018, 11:00 PM
He laughed, "Yo, if I had just known that before we coulda avoided this whole thing." He said, running his hand over his face briefly. This was the kind of stuff he liked with her, he liked talking to her and making bad jokes back and forth. "Yeah?" He ran his fingers through her hair as they kissed. "Spend the night?" He just wanted her here.


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE Jun 1 2018, 11:10 PM
"I know but I wasn't sure you'd want me after what happened..." After her brother shot him and she sort of told him to do it. They were just kids at the end of the day, this whole thing had been a lot. "I wanna but I have to tell you I snore real loud now... like I wake myself up loud so I'm giving you the chance to revoke the offer now..." Maya grinned at him.


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL Jun 1 2018, 11:17 PM
"I think I always want you around." He wasn't trying to be sappy or flirty or anything, he was just saying the truth. maybe it was because she was the first and only girl who had ever given him attention but he was so incredibly into Maya. Maybe it was puppy love, he didn't know, but he knew he cared a lot about her. "You serious right now? I gotta tell you, you always snored, it just gets worst every single month, it somehow gets louder."


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE Jun 1 2018, 11:24 PM
Maya smiled and even blushed a little at what he had to say. It was very sweet and she had no idea how to respond to it so she just leaned in and kissed him. Who need words hm? "What?! No I didn't! Did I?" she was definitely blushing now and actively pressing her hands against her face.


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL Jun 1 2018, 11:32 PM
He didn't think it was all that sweet, he just felt that way, but he grinned at her reaction before kissing her back. Damian didn't normally lie, he pretty much always meant what he said. "Yeah you did!" he was laughing, cupping her cheek softly. "At first I only heard it if I was awake but now it's bad, especially if you're hearing it. It's cute though, you're cute."


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE Jun 1 2018, 11:40 PM
"Oh my God..." she muttered, looking down until he held her face and she finally looked up, albeit pouting. "Well..." she started, already laughing, "you can't say I didn't warn you..." Snoring was not cute, she wasn't even going to dignify that with an answer. "You're also going to have to feed me because I can eat now too and I'm making up for lost time..."


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL Jun 1 2018, 11:48 PM
This was so cute. She was being so fucking cute right now it was killing him. He needed to get his shit together so he could spend more time with her and they'd stop fighting. Ahaha. "Aiight, you warned me." he said with a smile and laugh. "Oh shit, okay. A bunch happened. I got you. What you want me to order?" He'd order them some food right now.


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE Jun 2 2018, 10:09 AM
"Good, you're forewarned and I'm a snorer..." she pulled a D: face before laughing, "we're all learning something." Maya really was having a heard time believing she was a snoring pre-pregnancy but whatever, she wanted to move on. "Anything, I'll eat anything... I'm staaaaarving."


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL Jun 2 2018, 10:33 AM
Was he lying? Maybe. But he knew she snored and he didn't really mind it. The only pregnancy thing that actually bothered him was her shitty attitude. She was so unpleasant. Except for now, now she was great and very cute. He nodded and gave her another kiss before getting up to go get his phone so he could order something. "I'm gonna order from that Mexican spot with the good tacos." he said, sending off a few texts to some people who were looking for a hook up before he walked back over to her and pulled up seamless so he could order.


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE Jun 2 2018, 10:49 AM
"That sounds good..." she smiled, but honestly she was barely paying attention because she was balancing the puppy on her bump. "Damian look..." she chuckled, pointing to the dog. She would 1000% have kicked him out earlier if she knew this would be the result. "Nothing too spicy for me though please because the heartburn is insane..."


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL Jun 2 2018, 01:22 PM
He paused when she told him to look and he instantly burst out laughing. "Wait wait." he quickly switched to his camera and took a few pictures because that was hilarious and cute. He had stayed at her place he would have eventually brought home a puppy. "I know. I got you." Damian was a pretty picky eater so it wasn't like he was going to go too wild with the order.


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE Jun 2 2018, 03:56 PM
Maya covered her face with one of her hands as he took the photo whilst laughing. If she stayed in Ashwick she was going to get herself a dog. She wanted one real bad. She stretched in the chair a bit before smiling over at him. "I can't believe you got your own place... it's great man."


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL Jun 2 2018, 04:10 PM
Getting the dog was a good idea. He sort of had it for protection, he got a big breed for a reason, but also he figured that a dog would give him all the unconditional love without the judgment that he so desperately needed. "I got a car too. Making moves." his own place, a dog, a dope car. He liked living with her but the stability was good. "You're not mad I moved out?"


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE Jun 2 2018, 04:55 PM
"Wow... moving on up!" she smiled up at him. Damian seemed to be doing great, even if he was doing that by doing something very illegal. "Nah, made sense and it was the best thing for you, why would I be mad?" It was probably best for the both of them really. "Besides you know what they say, absence makes the heart grow fonder..." Maya barely managed to finish that sentence before bursting out laughing.


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL Jun 2 2018, 05:50 PM
"Maybe if you're lucky I'll take you for a ride." He said with a smirk and wink. He did so many illegal activities but he was making money. He shrugged. "I dunno, I sorta dipped on you and you are pregnant." Sure they weren't keeping the baby but he had still sort of abandoned his pregnant girlfriend. But they needed the space. He watched curiously before laughing along with her. "Why you laughing like it's not true. You already said you missed me so much." He teased, leaning down to kiss her again.


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE Jun 3 2018, 11:38 AM
"Eh..." she shrugged a bit. Honestly she hadn't expected him to stick around so she wasn't really that sad or disappointed about it. The only person she could rely on was herself and that was fine. "Because it was cheesy..." Maya smiled, kissing him as he leaned down, "too cheesy."


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL Jun 3 2018, 12:18 PM
"You know I'm not trying to bail on you, right?" He wasn't that person. Sure he had left without telling her but he wasn't trying to abandon her or anything. He knew how independent Maya was and he sort of liked it but he didn't have any interest in being one of the many people who left her to fend for herself. "Yeah well you're kind of cheesy. I like it though." God he had missed her and when they were good like this.


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE Jun 3 2018, 12:41 PM
"You gotta do what you gotta do" she shrugged, resting her hands on her bump. Maya didn't really want to talk about it, she felt like that was argument territory and she didn't want to argue right now. "I am not!" she laughed, gently taping him with her knuckle, "shut up..."


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL Jun 3 2018, 01:14 PM
He shook his head. "C'mon, Maya, I'm just saying I'm here for you, that's all." He wasn't really trying to take care of her or anything as much as he just wanted her to be there for her. He laughed, letting him hit her. "Yeah you are. Yo, you are so corny. All the time. You just be getting away with shit cuz you're pretty and smart." he joked as he finally sat back down beside her, once again his arm going around her shoulders.


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE Jun 3 2018, 06:59 PM
"Okay..." Maya wasn't really sure what he wanted her to say but either way she wasn't going to say it. She figured as soon as she'd had the baby and he didn't have to feel all guilty about it anymore he'd be gone. Nobody was reliable. "Well you're right there... I am smart and pretty" she smirked, batting her eyelashes before laughing.


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL Jun 3 2018, 07:14 PM
He just shook his head at her. She was annoying. This was the exact shit that he did to the Serrano family but it was very frustrating to deal with. He just cared so much about her and he just wanted to give her all of his support for some reason, he wasn't going anywhere, at least not easily. He laughed, "Aiight, don't get cocky now. Don't make me take that shit back." he teased as he cupped her face with his hand. "Where's your smart ass going to school anyway? You decide?" Please say Harding.


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE Jun 3 2018, 07:32 PM
"Come on I'm super pregnant... you have to be nice to me, honestly I don't think you've complimented me enough..." She wiggled her eyebrows at him before laughing again, like really belly laughing. Maya moved to rest her hands on his face too. She was just feeling real silly. It was nice to be back around him. "I'm still deciding..."


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL Jun 3 2018, 07:49 PM
"You reached the compliment peak. I ain't got no more." Give it another minute and he'd call her pretty some more. When she laughed like that, really laughed hard, he just had the biggest smile on his face. Even aside from the last incident, these months have not be good and this kind of stuff was why he liked her. "What's the short list looking like?"


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE Jun 3 2018, 08:01 PM
Maya pouted at him. "Fine..." she muttered, leaning back and folding her arms across her chest before winking at him to show she was only messing around. Compliments were awkward, she didn't really want them. "Uh Harding obviously, UCLA and I haven't heard back from NYU yet." I'll probably change this list at some point but essentially I want Harding, one pretty close and one pretty far. She totally had heard back from NYU but she didn't want to tell him that.


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL Jun 3 2018, 08:14 PM
He didn't really know that much about higher education. He obviously was never going to do that, even the community college seemed out of the question for him. But he had been paying attention to her and Mali when they talked about school, he asked questions, he knew a little bit. "NYU?" he asked, his eyes widening a little bit. "Like in New York, NYU? The east coast?" He was clearly thinking really hard and trying to process it and not get upset. "Would you go there if you got in?"


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE Jun 3 2018, 08:26 PM
"Yeah..." Maya knew she shouldn't have mentioned it. She was glad at least she hadn't told him that she had been offered a place if she wanted it because he was looking spooked already. "I don't know, I don't know why I even picked it..." she sighed a bit. "They're all great choices, I don't know..."


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL Jun 3 2018, 08:40 PM
Oh yeah, he was super spooked. He'd have this information in his head now. He knew Maya would leave eventually, he figured it would be for college, but not all the way across the country. "Cuz it's a good school and you're smart. I'm sure you'll get in." He gave her a quick kiss before pulling back, like all the way back. "You'll make a good choice."


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE Jun 5 2018, 09:13 PM
"I don't know... it's really far away" she muttered, shrugging a bit. This time last year she would've been on a plane and gone but things were far more complicated now. "Who'd look after Adam anyway?" The guy was unstable, somebody needed to keep an eye on him. "Or you... not that you need it, look at this plaaaaace."


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL Jun 6 2018, 07:22 AM
'It's real far away." he agreed with a nod. Damian would never try to keep her here, he was her biggest fan and he wanted her to be great, but her going far away would hurt so bad. "You got other brothers and cousins to watch out for Adam. I don't need anyone watching me. Do what you gotta do." he said as he ran his hands over his face before leaning back and looking up at the ceiling. He was very frustrated and trying not to pout.

“Like I’d trust them to do that...” she muttered with a sigh, ”but whatever, it’s months away anyway...” Maya and edged a bit closer to him to try and lean on him. He was acting weird, she knew she shouldn’t have mentioned it. “You okay?” Maya was pretty sure she wouldn’t get a straight answer but whatever, she’d ask.

He clenched his jaw a bit when she leaned against him but he didn't move away. This conversation was totally going to be why he fools around with Chantel. "Yeah I'm fine. You don't have to worry about me. I'm fine." he said before taking her hand in his loosely. He was not okay, he was really upset, even if she stayed she had still applied and thought about leaving. He could deal with UCLA fine but NYU was different.

”You’re my guy, of course I’m going to worry...” And he had a really big mouth, she was surprised he hasn’t been shot before honestly. ”Oh my God, he’s partying in there..” she grinned, putting his hand on her stomach and resting hers on top. ”It’s wild right? There’s an almost fully developed baby in there.”

Wow there was so much shit he wanted to say right now. That made him really angry but he was biting his tongue. It didn't always feel like he was her guy and most of the time just barely. He let her move his hand and after a few moments he finally opened his eyes and looked over at her. "You got an alien instead of you, girl." talking about baby stuff with her was always weird because they had very different opinions on it, he agreed that adoption was a good idea but still. "You're so big now, it's so crazy. And you still got a while too." there was going to be a little person that was a mix of them in the world soon.

"A little alien that's half you half me, that's wild..." she grinned, looking over at him. Was she softening up on this? Maybe, oops. "I think it's because I was skinny... I just look huge, does that make sense?" Maya was blabbering and she had no idea why. "I'm very tired of being pregnant now though...I'm ready for it to be over."

He scratched his cheek to try to cover up the major frown that went on his face. She had been so against this the entire time and he was not okay with her saying shit like that. He nodded a little at her question. He guessed that made sense, he was upset and angry and it was weird to have this conversation. "You think you're gonna be okay though, like after? You won't be sad or anything?" She would have a baby for nine month and then not get to see it grow up, not get to hold it or anything. He knew he was going to be sad after the baby was born, especially when he got to sit around cuddling with her and feeling the baby kick. He was going to be so sad he didn't get to be a dad.

Shame Damian is going to miss the last few weeks of her pregnancy and the birth of the child, eeek. "I don't know..." Maya really had no idea how she was going to feel. This baby had literally been a part of her for months, she wasn't sure how she was going to cope without it. "I try not to think about it..." Denial was definitely the easiest route for her.

He's going to be so angry and sad. He nodded a bit, "You're pretty strong. I think you'll be fine." Aka she was cold as shit and she'd probably just shove all those feelings away because that was what she did. She was probably better at handling emotional stuff than him because he very clearly let it get to him. "Do you know if you want to I dunno, know how he is?"


Posted by: MAYA DIONNE Jun 8 2018, 07:48 PM
"Thanks..." she smiled, looking over at him. That was the biggest compliment he could've payed her. It meant much more to her than some remark about her looks or something. "Are you going to be okay?" It was still his kid too, even if he hadn't had to carry him around for months. "I don't know... I mean we know where he's going and that it's the best home he could ever hope to have... I don't know." She was really trying not to think about it.

He noticed how much she liked that and he wrapped his arm around her shoulders again, giving her a kiss on the forehead. She was tough, probably too tough. "I don't know. I hope so. I'm a little worried I won't be." he said softly and honestly. Maybe it was because he had no biological family but he had gotten very invested very quickly, he didn't know if he'd be okay. "I want to but I dunno if I can if you're not gonna." He knew he would be safe with Ms Janae, they didn't have to worry.

"Well I'm here... I got you." Maya knew he was taking this harder than she was, he was more emotional but she could handle it and help him through it. "Yeah of course you can... Janae isn't going to shut you out, you can do whatever you like."


Posted by: DAMIAN CAMPBELL Jun 13 2018, 09:14 AM
He just nodded. She wouldn't be here, she had applied to NYU and UCLA, he just knew she would leave and he would have to deal with all this on his own. "But you don't want to know anything so I won't be able to talk to you about it so I won't." He knew Ms Janae would let him but if he couldn't share it with Maya then what was the point?
