Chapter: 17

“Come on baby… get up.”
Nicki slowly lifted her head from the crevice of Drake’s now soaked neck. She looked him in the eyes, whimpering, with the corners of her mouth turned down.
“Sshhh…” He wiped her tears. “It’s ok Onika.” He sniffled. “Come on… let’s get you to bed.”
She moved off of him and stood up in the navel high, bubbling water, shivering with her arms crossed over her upper torso. A warm breeze had blown through, passing over her wet skin.
“Stay here, I’ll be right back.” Drake stepped out of the Jacuzzi and went to go retrieve towels for them. He came back and helped Nicki out of the hot tub. Once her feet were sturdily on the ground, he dried her off and wrapped her in a pink towel. With a green towel tightly tucked around his waist, Drake picked her up and carried her like a newborn baby up to her room despite his injured knee. He laid her down on her bed and kissed her on the cheek. “I’ll be back.”
Nicki looked up with tired, puffy, red eyes and nodded her head. Drake then went to go shower. When he finished, he walked back into her room, fully dressed, and snuggled up behind her, stroking her hair ‘til she fell asleep. Nicki was comfortably covered with her towel, laying on her right side in fetal position. Her snoring was soft and wispy. You wouldn’t be able to hear it unless you were as close to her as Drake was. His arm was draped over her waist, his mouth to her ear. He just lie there, soaking her in. Two hours passed and Drake was still wide awake. His thoughts wouldn’t let him rest. They traveled through his mind like busy tourists in Hong Kong. He felt Nicki fidgeting under him so he raised his arm and sat up to look down at her. She deeply exhaled through her nose and rolled onto her back with a stretch.
“How long you been up?” She asked with closed eyes.
“I never went to sleep.”
Nicki blinked her eyes open and looked over then up at him. “Really?”
He nodded.
“So what’ve you been doin’ for,” Nicki took him by his hand and looked at the watch on his wrist. “two hours?”
“Listenin to you… do you know you talk in your sleep?”
“I do?”
“Haha, yea…”
“What was I sayin’?”
“A whole bunch of random shit… I don’t know what was goin’ on in ya head, but I do know you didn’t want the monkey to take your banana.”
“The hell?”
“I don’t know, you dreamt it.”
“Hahaha, I don’t remember.”
“You have a wild imagination.”
“Can’t argue with you there.” Nicki sat up, holding her pink towel over her breasts, and looked Drake square in the eyes. “I’m… goin’ to go shower. I smell like chlorine.”
“Okay. I’ll be downstairs if you need me.”
“I can’t eat?”
“Oh. Well do you boo.” Nicki walked toward the bathroom, dropping her towel in the hamper near the bathroom door. She went in as Drake got off the bed to go downstairs. He made them both something to eat and waited for her to join him. Thirty minutes later, she came down in one of his huge, black OVO tee shirts and her fuzzy, pink slippers. She witnessed Drake murdering a plate of Buffalo wings.
“Whoa, slow down babe. Haha, I don’t think they’re goin’ anywhere.”
Drake looked up, licking his fingers and smiled. “I made you some too. Your plate’s in the microwave.”
“Aw, thank you baby.”
He watched her as she went to got get it. She sat down, across from him, at the table and said her grace. Drake got up, dumped his bones in the garbage and washed his dish. Nicki watched him as she nibbled on a mini drumstick. He sat back down at the table and watched her.
“So you’re jus gonna watch me eat? You’re creeping me out…” She admitted, covering her mouth.
“Haha, it’s cute… the way you eat. Like a little mouse or somethin’”
Nicki giggled. “Shut up.”
He smiled. Just then, a thought flickered across Nicki’s mind.
”Hey babe? I jus realized something… I only have a few more hours left with you.”
“Don’t remind me.”
“You know what? We should do something. I don’ t remember when we ever actually got out of this house… together.”
“What did you have in mind?”
Nicki ate the last of her six Buffalo wings then scooted her chair out to go throw the bones away. “Something spontaneous. Like something we haven’t done before?”
“It’s almost 6:30pm. What else can we do this late in the day?”
“Time doesn’t matter. I have an idea…. You have bots right?”
“I didn’t pack any. Why?”
“Well… I wanna go star gazing…”
“You don’t hafta leave the house to do that. I’m right here.”
“Haha, no Aubrey.” She said, washing her plate. “I want to go like climb a mountain or something and jus look at the stars. I heard it’s better to see them from a mountaintop.”
“Nic? How are we gonna get on top of a mountain?”
“Hike it?”
“Yea? It’ll be fun.” She dried her hands and turned to look at him, her lower back resting against the edge of the sink. “Don’t be lazy Aubrey. I don’t like lazy people.”
“I’m not against it. I jus hope you can keep up with me.”
She smiled. “I’m pretty sure that won’t be an issue sir.”
“Haha, that’s what you say… So when we leavin’?”
“Um, lemme handle a few things first. Be back.”
Drake watched as Nicki rushed out of the kitchen. She went upstairs to call Safaree. She asked him to buy a few things they’d need for the hike and bring them over. When he got there, SB had driven Drake’s car to return it back to him. Rex was following behind in another car so Safaree would have a way back home. SB had bags of stuff Nicki and Drake would probably never use again. As Dricki sat in the living room, Nic picked through the bags and found two pairs of hiking boots. She pulled out sleeping bags, bug repellant, two flashlights and a survival manual.
“Safaree?” She asked, flipping through the book. He was bringing in the last thing from the trunk… a tall, white box. Nicki looked at him with a puzzled look. “What’s that?”
“A tent…”
“Wait… you think we’re like camping or something?”
SB nodded like that was the obvious thing to do.
“No… we’re not camping Faree. It’s jus for a few hours…”
Drake spoke up in his defense. “Actually… that doesn’t seem like such a bad idea… why would we make the trip and not stay?”
Nicki closed the manual to think. “Well… I… I don’t know. I mean, I guess we could camp out…”
“Okay, so we will. Thank you Safaree.” Drake stood up and limped to dap him up. Nicki saw this.
“Aubrey… you’re still limping…”
“I’ll be fine… come on, let’s get this stuff all packed up.”
Nicki sighed and stood up off the couch. She went upstairs to change her clothes then she searched her medicine cabinet in her bathroom until she found what she needed. She came back downstairs to find Drake strapping on his hiking boots. “Where’s Safaree?”
“He left.”
“How rude? He didn’t tell me bye.”
Drake shrugged and looked at what Nic held in her hand. “What’s that?”
“Oh, it’s for you. It’s an Ace bandage and some Bio freeze.”
“Bio freeze?”
“Yea, it numbs the pain.” She walked over and sat next to him on the couch. Nicki carefully lifted his leg up and placed it over her lap. She tore open the packet of topical ointment and massaged it into his bruised knee. It gave Drake’s leg a cool and tingly feeling. “This should last you for a few hours or so. I’ll bring more in case you need it.” She said as she wrapped his knee in the Ace bandage. “There you go.”
“Thanks baby.” He kissed her on the cheek.
“Come on lover boy. I wanna leave before the sun sets.” Nicki placed his leg back on the floor and helped him stand. The medicine took effect quickly. Drake could barely feel his knee. They loaded everything into the trunk of Drake’s Ferrari then came back inside to load up on snacks; nothing major though.
Drake went in the living room to make sure they had everything. He noticed Nicki’s hiking boots still in the box on the coffee table. “Nicki?!”
She walked out of the kitchen with the bag of snacks they’d be taking with them. “What?”
“How are you gonna hike without your boots?” He looked down at her heeled, cheetah printed size fives. “Haha, you’re not serious?”
“What? They didn’t go with my outfit.”
“Nic? You can’t hike in heels.”
“Says who?”
“Anyone with common sense. You should really change your shoes.”
“I’ll change them if I need to. But I’m pretty sure I’ll be fine. We’re jus climbing a hill.”
“Where exactly is this hill?” Drake asked, picking up her shoe box. Nicki reached into her purse and pulled out her blackberry. She showed Drake that they’d be hiking the Mishe Mokwa Trail. He had no clue what that was, but he didn’t complain. They both walked to the front door and Nicki locked up. Then they headed to Drake’s car.
“Can I drive? Nicki asked as they walked.
“I wanna drive.”
“Haha, I’m not letting you drive my car.”
“Why? It’s not like I’m gonna crash it.”
“You might. It’s too fast for you.”
“I can handle the curves so shut up and let me drive.” She snatched the keys from him and strutted to his side of the car in heels. Drake didn’t even bother getting them back. Defeated, he walked around to the passenger’s side and got in.
“Be careful Nicki.” He buckled his seat belt and pulled it tight.
“Hush boy. I got this.” She buckled her seat belt. Nicki sat there for a second, her eyes roaming around the steering wheel and dashboard. Drake looked on with a smirk.
“You got this?” He teased. He took the keys from her and started the car for her. Nicki put both hands on the wheel at ten and two. Drake chuckled. “No…” He took her right hand and placed it on the stick shift. “This hand stays here. You have driven six speeds before right?”
“Only for a test drive, but I think I know what I’m doin babe.”
Fright flashed across Drake’s face. He sunk into his seat and performed the sign of the cross. Nicki saw this.
“Stop bein so dramatic. You’re not even Catholic so I doubt that works for you.”
“God answers all prayers…” He tightened up his seat belt some more. Nicki giggled then shifted the gear and stepped on the gas. The car violently jolted, but didn’t go anywhere.
“Okay. Thas enough, I’m drivin.” Drake quickly undid his seatbelt and went to open the door.
“Noooo!!!” She whined, holding him back in his seat. “I said I got it babe. Jus please give me another chance?”
“Hell no! I do wanna live to see another day. I am not tryna die.”
“Baby? Pleeease???” She whined.
“No.” He unbuckled her seatbelt. “Switch sides with me.” Nicki reluctantly got out of the car. She slammed the door behind her and stomped around to the passenger’s side. Drake got out and held the door open for her. He politely grabbed her by the elbow; her arms were folded. “You mad at me?”
Nicki rolled her eyes at him and snatched her arm away. “Get off me.” She got in the car and slammed the door.
“I’ll take that as a yes….” Drake jogged to the driver’s side and got in. He glanced at Nicki, who was holding her head up with her fist. Her elbow was resting against the door, lip poked out. He buckled his seatbelt and put the car in the correct gear then pulled off. They were halfway to their destination when they reached a fork in the road. Drake stopped.
“Which way do I turn? Left or right?”
“You wouldn’t hafta ask if you let me drive…” She mumbled under her breath.
“I said take a left, I’m only along for the ride…”
Drake side eyed her and turned right.
“Why would you ask if you’re not even gonna listen to me?”
“Cuz you’re wrong. Look,” He nodded at a sign ahead before Nicki had a chance to spit a comeback. She turned her attention to what he had pointed out and realized her mistake.
“Oh.” Was all she could say.
When they arrived to the trail, Nicki looked out of her window at the Santa Monica Mountains. Her eyes were huge. “What the fu…” She trailed off. “Drake? Where are my boots?” He smirked and reached into the backseat and handed them to her. Nicki quickly changed her shoes and they both got out. Drake had parked near a lot of trees. They both took everything out of his trunk and humped up the mountain like soldiers in Vietnam. Twenty minutes had already passed and the sun was beginning to set as they hiked in silence. Nicki had gotten over her little attitude and actually started to enjoy the evening. Drake was lagging behind her. His knee was no longer a problem as long as the Bio freeze continued to do its job. Nicki tried to make conversation, but he was off in his own world so she was only talking to herself. He watched her walk ahead of him as she was stepping over stones, swatting bugs and avoiding thorn bushes. Nicki was like Indiana Jones. All she needed was the whip and cowboy hat.
“Drake? Are you listening to me?”
He didn’t answer. He was too busy focusing on the way her body moved as she worked the trail.
“Auubreey?” She sang. When he didn’t respond, Nicki stopped and turned around to make sure he was still behind her. “Why aren’t you answering me?”
“I was talking to this whole time babe.”
“Oh, sorry. What is it?”
“Nothing important now…. Can you carry this?” Nicki removed her backpack.
“My back hurts and my feet feel like they’re starting to blister. I jus wanna go home. Can we turn back? I’m tired baby.”
“No, uh uhh, no. This was your idea and we are going to make it to the top. So you take this bag of yours, turn right back around and keep hikin. We’re almost there.”
“But Aubreeey?”
“Ah ah aah, take it.” He handed her back her back pack and tapped her on the butt as she turned around. “That a girl.” He smiled.
Nicki stopped again and turned around to face him. “Jus curious….. How much do you love me Aubrey?”
“A little bit… I guess that I’m a little bit in love wit’chu.”
She scrunched her face up. “Drake?” She asked with the corners of her mouth turning down.
“I’m jus kidding! Haha, you know you my galaxy, girl.” He pulled her close.
“I better be,” She giggled and hit him in the shoulder. “and stop ignoring me you jerk.”
“Hahaha, I was only thinkin about you.”
“Good thoughts?”
“I always think good thoughts about you.”
Nicki smiled and planted a kiss on his cheek, salty with sweat. It was hot in Cali and they still had a ways to go. Forty minutes later, they reached the top of the mountain. Drake wrestled everything off of his back and sat on a random boulder. There was still a squint of daylight left.
“Babe…. don’t…. get lazy…. on me now….” Nicki said, out of breath. “we still…. hafta…. put the tent up….” Nicki dropped to her knees with everything still on her back. “I hate myself…” She whispered, while pulling of her back pack. She began to peel her shirt off when Drake glared at her.
“Aye?! What are you doin?”
“Calm down guy. We’re the only ones out here. It’s hot.” She wiped the sweat from her face with her top and tossed it. She stood and walked over to Drake, pulling him off his boulder. “Help me with this tent.”
                After four attempts to correctly assemble the tent, they finally got it right. Nicki threw their backpack and bag of snacks inside. The sun had vanished and the temperature was starting to cool down. Nicki decided to set up their sleeping bags so she took them back out of the tent while Drake got reacquainted with his boulder and a bag of pretzels.
“Are you gonna help me or not Aubrey?” She asked, a bit irritated. He looked over at her struggling with the heavy duty sleeping bags and stood up, leaving his pretzels on his boulder. He pulled his pants up and walked over to her.
“What are you doing?”
“Here… hold this.” She handed him a corner of one of the sleeping bags. Nicki grabbed the other end of the other sleeping bag and began zipping them together, into one giant sleeping bag. She flattened it out over the ground and went back into the tent to get the flashlights. Nicki turned them on and handed one to Drake.
“What a I gonna do with this?”
“Not too sure… I’ve never actually been camping before. Jus keep it close to you I guess… Come on.”
                Nicki took him by the hand and they went to lie on top of the conjoined sleeping bags. Drake took his shirt off and used it as a pillow. Nicki didn’t need one, she had Drake. She lie her head on his chest and listened to him breathe, His diaphragm contracting with each breath he took. Nicki could hear the beat of his heart beneath her right ear. It almost lulled her to sleep, but she couldn’t let her lids get heavy. They came there to watch the stars twinkle so that’s what they were going to do. They both looked up, admiring the billions of glittering specks sprinkled across the night sky. Time passed as they pointed out numerous constellations and shooting stars. They only saw one of those and they both secretly wished on it. Drake started to hum something random and Nicki could feel the warm vibrations his body gave off. She snuggled up closer to him and closed her eyes, wrapping her arm around his bare chest.
“Mmm, I love you Aubrey…. You may not hear me say that enough or maybe I say it too much, but I want you to know I mean it. There not jus words to me…”
“I love you too Onika… you’re my heart, my everything. You shine brighter than all the stars in this sky. I could look at you at any given time on any given day and see jus how beautiful you are,” Nicki opened her eyes and lifted her head up to look at his face. “Inside and out. Your eyes tell me stories. I stare into them and I see you. Who you are, what you’ve been through. They speak to me even when you don’t open your mouth. I know how you feel without you havin to tell me. It’s like when I’m quiet and don’t speak cuz there’s no need for words? I’m only thinkin about you… when I look at you, I see myself. We’re both alike in many different ways. We may do a lot of things differently, but you’re still me and… I’m you… What I’m sayin is…. We’re meant to be… we’re perfect for each other. I wanna love you for the rest of my life. And I’m goin to if you allow me….”
“Of course Aubrey. Thas all I’ve been waiting for. For you to love me as much as I know you can. I used to think I’d never be able to open up to anyone again and love them with everything I have. I thought I would’ve been the one to hold back, hesitate, second guess my feelings… But thas not the case. And it’s weird to me cuz you’re the one who’s holding back. I now understand why it takes you time and I’ve learned to be more patient because of you. You allow me to be myself and that has helped me let my guard down faster than I ever have before. I’ve never been able to love someone as much as I love you. I always held back, but with you, I don’t hafta do that. I can tell you anything. You don’t judge me, you love who I am. I can get a little crazy at times and be extra, but you never leave me. You stay by my side and even if I am annoyed with you,” A tear rolled down her cheek. “You try your best to make me feel better and fix whatever the problem is. Aubrey? This love we have for each other is way more golden than I imagined love could ever be. You help me be a better person even if you don’t see it and I jus wanna say thank you for loving me.”
“You don’t need to thank me Onika. It’s not like I’m doing you a favor of any kind. Me loving you is no gift, no reward. It just… IS. You know? I can’t explain it completely. I jus know you’re mine and I’m yours. I feel like the more we talk and the more we spend time together, the more I fall in love with you. And it’s unfair to me that you’re an open book with me, but to you I’m… a diary.”
“Don’t beat yourself up about it baby, it’s ok. Honestly. I’m not rushing you to show me who you are anymore. Now that I understand you a little more, I like that you’re taking your time with me. It shows me you care and you’re jus trying to take it slow because you don’t want anything to mess up between us. I love you with everything I have. I’ve never been able to say that to any man before. I’m glad we found each other…”
                Nicki leaned in and kissed him on the lips. Their tongues intertwined in pure bliss. Tears ran down her face as they occupied each other’s space, sharing an unforgettable moment. Nicki pulled away.
“Aubrey?” She sniffled. “I wanna do something for you…” Nicki crawled to her knees and stood up. She held out her hand and helped Drake stand.
“Like what?”
“Something…” Nicki grabbed his shirtless body and pulled him close to her. All she wore on her torso was a bra and a coating of love. She began to kiss him once more, allowing her hands to free roam over his pecs and six pack. Drake passionately kissed her back. Nicki’s hands wandered downward to his belt buckle. She unzipped his pants and began to undo his belt. Nicki pulled his pants down and then his briefs. She started kissing on his neck as she massaged his exposed penis. Nicki moved lower, kissing his pecs…. Then his abs.
“Nicki… you really don’t hafta do that baby.”
She looked up at him. “I want to… you can’t stop me Aubrey…” Nicki got down on her knees and glanced up at him once more, while pushing a loose strand of hair behind her ear. Her diamond studded earrings glistened in the moonlight. She licked her lips and continued to kiss down his masculine body. Lust dripped from her lips, showering the V to his valley in sweet and soft droplets of kisses, making his skin tingle under her pressure. Almost trance-like, he stood there, basking in the sultry moment, admiring the top of her head. As if it were instinct, Drake hesitantly raised his hand and placed it atop her head. Nicki looked up into his eyes and licked her lips again. She bowed lower as he ran his digits through her straightened, thick and silky, natural hair. She kissed her way down his limp shaft. Drake’s penis awakened when she tongue kissed the head of it. She wrapped her right hand around his thickness and began to stroke. He was very well-endowed so she needed two. Nicki brought her other hand up and pulled at his penis, gently tugging it back and forth. She looked up at him again, but there was no eye contact. Drake’s lids were closed tight as he bit his bottom lip. She leaned inward, bringing Jimmy to her lips. She stared at it and kissed the head again. Nic then slithered her tongue out of her mouth, making the tip hard, and repeatedly flicked it against the tip of Drake’s penis. She licked it like a lollipop a final time, tasting it… savoring it… And then she began to slide his dick in her mouth. She sucked on the tip, sliding it in further, letting it occupy most of the space in her jaws.
“Mmm…. Damn baby…. You know jus what the fuck you doin…” He continued caressing her head.
Nicki began moving her dome back and forth, slowly. Drake’s dick skated across the surface of her taste buds as she rolled her tongue. She wanted to take it a step further. Challenging herself, she placed her hands on the back of Drake’s thighs, under his buttocks, and brought him in closer. His dick moved further in through her lips. He could feel Nicki’s uvula on the tip of his penis, it tickled a little. His dick was so far gone, she was almost swallowing it. Drake was on cloud nine. He began pulling at Nic’s hair, scrunching it up in the palm of his hand. He moved his free hand, the left, to hold the back of her head. Nicki didn’t mind at all.
*Oh my God, how does he fit all this inside me…. He’s so big….. I feel like I’m going to choke… I hope he’s enjoying this… I jus really wanna please him… I love’m so much and he tastes so good…* She thought to herself.
“Oh…. Shit Nicki… Mmm…. You got it… Ooo, sss, you got it baby…”
Still deep throating him, Nicki sucked and sucked like she was slurping thick and creamy milkshake through a red straw. She felt herself about to gag so she took a breather. Pulling his dick out of her mouth, she began coughing, turning her head to the side and holding his penis in her hand. Her free hand patting her chest.
“You ard baby?” Drake asked, looking down at her.
She nodded her head. “Yea… I’m fine…” She put his manz back into her mouth, finishing what she had started. Nicki was more aggressive this go ‘round. She moved quicker with more suction. Drake was on the verge of orgasm. He wanted so bad to cry out and fill the atmosphere with his moans. But he held back fearing Nicki would see him as less of a man. That is until she did this one move with her tongue. Drake couldn’t contain himself anymore.
“Oooohhh!!!! Shit!!!! Damn Onika!!!!” He moaned, delicately thrusting himself into her mouth. He had handfuls of her beautiful head of hair imprisoned under his palms. “Jesus Christ girl!!! Ooohh!!! Damn!! Mmmm!!”
Nicki placed her palms on his waist. She pulled him in even further.
“Aaahhh! FUCK!! I’m…. Ooo…. I’m about…. Ooooo…. I’m boutta cum baby!” Drake pushed her hair back, out of her face and ran his hand down her cheeks, signaling her to stop so he could pull out. Nicki grabbed his wrists and moved his hands away, still holding onto them. She looked up at Drake and continued to please him. He really didn’t want to cum in her mouth, but from the looks of things… Drake assumed she didn’t hear him. “Onika… baby…. I’m…. I’m about to cum baby….”
She stared into his eyes and kept at it. He warned her… twice. Seconds later, Drake ceased all movement. His body tensed up and his mouth widely gaped open. He let it all out. Nicki’s mouth filled with him. She pulled his penis from her lips and swallowed while gazing up at him. Drake continued to look down at her in awe.
*Did she really jus do that…* He thought.
Nicki licked her lips and wiped the corner of her mouth with the back of her hand as they continued to stare into each other’s eyes. Biting her lip, she seductively smiled at him as he helped her stand. Drake didn’t know what to say. His mind went blank. Nicki kissed the corner of his mouth while her fingertips danced across his abs. Smoothly brushing past him, she kissed up the curve of his jawbone.
“You taste sweet…” She whispered in his ear, licking his earlobe. She then continued on her way. Nicki stepped forward a couple paces then bent down to crawl into the tent.
Dazed, Drake clumsily pulled his pants from gravity’s grip, holding them at his waist. He stumbled to the entrance of the tent and peeped inside; he saw Nicki digging through her backpack, her back to him.
She turned around.
“You’re not going to sleep are you?” He climbed into the tent.
“Not if you don’t want me to…. I’ll stay up with you.”
“Yes, you will.” Drake grabbed her by the hand and pulled her out of the tent. His pants fell to his ankles as he let them go to kiss her. Nicki kicked her boots off and so did Drake. They walked backwards a few paces and their feet met the cool material of the sleeping bags. Drake unhooked her bra and she unzipped her pants then he pulled them off. Drake lay down on the sleeping bag, pulling Nicki on top of him. She fell to his chest with a smack. Their skin connecting like Lego blocks. Nicki straddled him and began to kiss his neck. Drake’s dick got hard all over again. Nicki sat up and lifted her lower half. She positioned herself over his penis so she could slide down onto it with no problem. She was soaking wet. Nicki leveled herself down onto him inch by inch. When she had him all in, she began to move her hips back and forth. Her hands rested on his chest as she rode him like a pro. Drake watched her as she took control, his hands living comfortably on her waist. Nicki’s eyes were closed and her head thrown back. Her breathless moans became a part of the mountaintop’s ambiance. Drake carefully traded places with her, she now lie on her back, legs in the air. He pinned her wrists down to the sleeping bag as he filled her inner core with his iron rod.
“Oooh, baby! Yeeesss!” Nicki screamed out. She looked him in the eyes as he stared down at her. “Make love to me Aubrey…” She cried, tears escaping the corners of her eyes. She sniffled as Drake continued to hold onto her wrists. He slowed his pace, giving her what she deserved, more meaningful, long and hard strokes. Nicki’s eyes watered as she absorbed each blow. Her breathing was heavy and quick. She was inhaling and exhaling deeply. She may have sounded out of breath, but no, she wasn’t. Nicki closed her eyes.
“Mm mm, look at me Onika…”
She did as she was told. They both peered into each other’s eyes as sweat smeared itself over their bodies. Drake thrust into her, making her body shake. Nicki could feel all of him inside of her. She was so close. Nicki bit her bottom lip to stop from screaming.
“Don’t be selfish… I wanna enjoy it too… Let me hear ya beautiful voice…” Drake kissed her, sucking her bottom lip from her teeth’s strong hold. Nicki moaned into his mouth, causing their lips to buzz a little. He pulled back and she gave him what he wanted. Nicki screamed his name in glory.
“I love you baby… I fuckin love you… Don’t ever leave me… Please… Don’t ever do me dirty… Ooohhh!!! I love you so much… I can’t imagine life without you AUBREEEY!!!! Ooh God, I don’t want to… I want you by my side forever baby… Uuuuhhh!!! You mean so…. fuckin much to me…. Oooohhh!!! So much….”
Drake never lost eye contact with her. He continued to stare into her precious eyes. “I love you too baby… I’ll never leave you… I promise…”
Nicki’s body started shaking again. “Uuuhhh! Can you feel me baby?!”
Drake nodded. Nicki’s walls were tightening around his penis. He could feel her orgasm coming. Within seconds, Nic had reached her climax. She came with a loud moan and fresh set of tears. Drake wasn’t far behind.
“Hold on tight baby… I’m about to pull out.”
“No, please…. I want it all baby. Give it to me…” She breathlessly begged.
“Onika… I—“
“Aubrey… please? Let me have it….”
He pulled out and came on the blue sleeping bag beneath them. “I jus…. I’m… not ready yet……”
Nicki pressed her lips together as her tears got heavier and raced to her ears. “It’s….. okay……. I’ll…… I’ll wait……… I can…… wait…….” She whispered, her voice quivering; full of a hidden cry. 
“I’m sorry….”
Nicki rolled over and balled herself up into fetal position.
“I’m sorry….” Drake said a second time. She didn’t respond, but he didn’t expect her to. Drake just wanted her to know; to hear him. He looked down at her and watched as the tears rolled down her face. Nicki could feel him staring. She closed her eyes and put her arm over the side of her face covering her ears. Drake looked away. He picked up the shirt he’d taken off and cleaned up his mess. He tossed the tee into the bushes and wrapped himself around Nicki; lying behind her, his arm around her waist. Drake held onto her as tightly, but gently as he could, nuzzling his face in her neck. He didn’t want to let her go.
“I’m sorry….”

Chap. 16: Wavy Baby [Part 2/2]

*exhales* aaahhhh...... ^_^ feels good to be back... I don't know what you wanna call this chapter, long? short? in between? Well, it doesn't really matter to me. I jus want you all to enjoy it. I really hope you like it. The beginning starts off kinda slow for me. I honestly sort of hate it :/ But I’ll let u guyz b the judges. It picks up after Nic and Drake have already showered and eaten and stuff. Didn't feel like adding it in, it's unimportant... Well, I love you all!!!

Chapter: 16

Nicki's giggles decorated the air with innocence as she and Drake sat on the balcony side by side outside of her bedroom in their own chairs. The only thing separating them was a table with a tall pitcher of lemonade and two glasses; one half empty, the other half full. They were both sitting down watching the sailboats out on the horizon. Nicki was on her blackberry... lurking. She cleared her throat and Drake looked over, but that's all it was. She continued to watch the boats, read her TL and sip her lemonade. Some boats raced, some floated, and some skipped across the water's surface creating ripples.

"This is beautiful..." she smiled.

"I'm glad you're enjoying this cuz I'm gettin kinda bored..." He sipped from his half empty glass.

Somebarbie in TM must have tweeted something extremely funny because Nicki began to laugh a weird, squeaky laugh.

"What's so funny?"

Nicki shook her head and looked back down at her phone. She continued laughing, trying her best to hold it in.

"Ew, hahaha, don't laugh like that again."

She laughed even harder.

"Ew, hahahaha!! Stop!"

Nicki couldn't help it. She lost herself, breaking into a laughing fit; her hand hovering over her mouth, her eyes closed. Drake couldn't take it anymore. He had no clue what was so hilarious. He got up and walked over to her. He lifted her out of the chair without caution. Nicki didn't even know he moved so it frightened her when she felt her bottom leave her chair. She held on tight to him.

"AUBREY?!" She shrieked.

"Oh, look whose back." He smiled.

"Don't do that! We're on a freaking balcony! We could've fallen over the railing or something!"

"Hahaha, relaaax. I got you."

“Exactly my point..."

"Ooo, that hurt."

"I'm jus jokin baby." She smiled and gave him a kiss.

Drake then sat down in her chair, cradling her body in his arms like she were an infant and he the new parent. He took her phone and slipped it into one of the netted pockets in his basketball shorts.

"Hey? I was using that."

"Key word: was."

"You're rude. I didn't even get to tweet anything and I know my barbz and boyz miss me."

"You can tweet later... you only have one day and a few hours left with me."

Nicki pouted with crossed arms. Drake just smiled and kissed her nose. She giggled and kissed him back. Nicki wrapped her arms around his neck and pecked him on the lips while saying, "I... love you Aubrey..."

"I... love you too... baby..." He said, kissing her in between his words as well. They both went back and forth with tiny pecks on each other’s soft lips until they started completely making out with tongue and all. Minutes passed and they both pulled away as if on cue. Drake stood up with her still in his arms and began to walk toward the glass door.

"Where we goin?"

He carried her over the threshold and slid the sliding door shut. "How do you feel about bein wet?"


"How do you feel about bein wet??"

She side eyed him.

"Nicki. Do you wanna get wet or not? Simple question."

"Um... Aubrey? Where is this heading?"

"Your pool?"

"Oh. Hahaha, I thought-"

"Yea... I know what you thought, nasty."

She blushed and climbed out of his arms.

"Haha, whatever..." Nicki walked over to her closet as Drake sat on her bed and watched her search for a bathing suit to wear. She picked out one Drake had gotten her. Nicki then began to take her shirt off to put the swimsuit on.

"Hey... did you ever call Martin back?"

Nicki stopped in midair. "Oh shoot. I forgot... Where's my phone?"

Drake reached into his pocket and handed it to her.

"Thanks babe." She walked over to the sliding door and looked out over the ocean. She called Martin and was immediately greeted with a hurried hello.

"Whoa, you sound like you're in a rush. What's up? You called earlier?"

"YES! Nic, I'm sorry for such late notice, but you have something very important to do today. I tried calling last night, but you didn't answer."

"What?! Martin! Why the hell- You know something... I'm not even upset... What is it?"

"Well at 11am you have a photo shoot to do for the October issue of Glamour magazine."

Nicki looked at her blackberry to check the time; it was 10:12am.

"I'm really sorry Nicki. I should have tried your phone again earlier this morning."

"No Martin... It's... Not your fault..."


"I said it's not your fault. Shit happens. Where's the venue?" She asked, rubbing her temple.

"Your place..."

"Wait.... you've gotta be kidding me?" She looked over at Drake who had laid back on her bed with his feet on the floor. "Martin, I can't have them here. Can we shoot elsewhere?"

"Nic? It's sort of last minute. I don't think they can change it in such short notice."

"Well whose fault is that Martin?!"

"............................... I'll see what I can do..."

"Good. Call me as soon as you hear anything."

"Of course. Oh, Day and Terrence should be there any second... sorry..."

Nicki's eyes hot huge. "MARTIN?! What the hell are you good for?! You need to work on ya time management! Next time somethin like this happens, I'm not doin it. I don't care what it is."

"Ok, ok Nicki. I'm really sorry."

"Ch... aren't you..... get off my phone." She hung up. "Drake?" She walked over to him and tapped him on his knee. He opened his eyes and sat up. "Um... we have a problem... Um, I-" Her phone rang. "Hold on.......... Hello?"

"Yea, we have good news. Glam mag is running a little behind schedule so they won't be ready 'til 12pm. I asked them to change the location and they agreed. They're jus waiting for me to call back. Where do you wanna shoot?"

"Oh yes! Thank you Martin! Um, how about my apartment in downtown LA? We could shot there?"

"Ok, no problem. I'll let them know. The truck should be there to pick you up in an hour."

"Ok. Sounds good. I'll be ready by then."

"Alright. Bye Nic."

"Martin wait!! What about Terrence and Day?"

"Oh, they're still on their way to you. You guys will all ride there together."

Nicki closed her eyes and rubbed her hand over her face. Terrence and Day had no clue about her and Drake. She couldn't let them find out, not like this. She sighed. "Ok Martin. Bye."

"See you."

Nicki turned to a confused Drake.

"What was that about?"

"I have a photo shoot in less than two hours..."

"Ooo, you sure you're gonna get there on time?"

"That's not the problem... Terrence and Day are on their way over here..."



"Oh damn..... Damn! I can't be here. Where the hell I'ma go?"

They both sat on the bed in silence trying to figure it out.

"Hey? How do you feel about hangin with Safaree? I could call him and you guys could do guy stuff?"

"Haha, guy stuff?"

"I don't know," she shrugged. "whatever it is guys do.... sooo?"

"I feel like a hidden step child.... bein pawned off on people and shit."

"Ha, sorry baby. I don't like it any more than you do, but we can't risk them finding out. Not yet..."

"Ard. I'll do it for you." He kissed her.

"Thank you baby." She smiled and called Safaree. They talked for a minute then she handed the phone off to Drake. The two men talked for a few minutes then hung up.


"Well... looks like I'm BC-24.... whatever the hell that means. He wants me to-"

"Wait!" Nicki help up one of her hands with a grin on her face. "Did you jus say you're BC-24?!"


Nicki fell back onto the bed and bust out in her obnoxious laughter. Drake looked at her like she lost it.

"Wait, wait..." She said, trying to catch her breath. "I needa talk to his ass pronto! I'm not gonna have my man walkin around callin hisself a black cock!" She laughed more.

"That's what that means?"

"According to me! If he tells you otherwise, don't believe him! He's lying to you! Hahahahahaa!! Oh my God! I'm gonna whip his ass!"

"Haha, it doesn't sound like such a bad thing to me..."

"Of course it wouldn't. You have one, but still, it's stupid."

"Don't hate."

"Hahaha, trust me. I'm far from hating. Go head BC-24, have fun." She giggled.

"I plan to. I'm meetin him and the Vaks at their place. We might shoot some hoops, play some video games. You know regular "guy stuff" jus the usual I suppose."

They both stood up off of the bed and hugged one another. Nicki walked him to his car and opened his door for him. She shut it and leaned in through the window.

"Drive safely." She kissed him.

"Ard baby, see you."

She stepped back and he pulled off. He didn't say I love you. Nicki thought that was strange, but she let it go and headed back to her front door. As she walked, she heard wheels on gravel and a horn beeping. She turned around and saw a white van pulling onto her property. She didn't recognize the driver, but she did recognize the people stepping out of the vehicle.

"Day?! Terrence?!" She squealed and ran over to them. "Oh my God! I missed you!!! I'm happy you guys are here!!"

"Heeey miss Nicki. We missed you too. You look so happy." Terrence said.

"I am! I'm happy to see you guys!!!" She hugged him then hugged Day.

"I see God's been good to you," Day said. "You're looking better than ever and your face is as naked as can be."

"I saw that too. And what's with the hair? You too good for wigs now?" Terrence asked, picking at Nic's natural head of hair.

"Haahhaha! You guys are a trip. Let me help you." Nicki lent them a hand with their kits, tools and other equipment. The van pulled off after they got what they needed. They all began walking toward the house, Nicki leading the way, her back to them.

"By the way, who was that we saw leaving you house?" Day asked.

"Huh? Oh... um... the plumber..."

Terrence and Day looked at each other.

"Now Nicki?" T began. "That was a red Ferrari we saw, not a rusted jalopy. Who you think you foolin?"

"I'm being honest..." She never turned around. "He jus needed to unclog a few pipes... that's all..."

"Nicki? Plumber's don't drive expensive cars like that sweetie. If they did,  they wouldn't be plumbers."

"It's California, Day. Everybody drives nice cars..."

"She's got a point Day. It is Cali after all."

They reached the door and Nicki let them in. Day looked at Nic with a side eye as she entered. She didn't believe a word of that "it was a plumber" jibber jab. Day wasn't threw with her just yet and she wasn't going to let it go. Nicki sensed this and shut the door behind them. She led them into the living room and they sat everything down on the floor, couch and coffee table.

"It's been a while since I've been here." T said. Day agreed by nodding her head. "What'chu got to eat honey? I am starving." He walked to the kitchen.

"So am I." Day followed.

Nicki watched them in amusement. "How ya'll jus gon come over my house and raid my kitchen?" She asked, following them both.

"Chill. We fam. It's cool." Day said, peeping in the fridge. Terrence was checking the cabinets. He didn't find anything he wanted there so he checked what he though was the pantry. He was surprised when he found a washer and dryer. There were fabrics in front of the washer.

"This is not the pantry..." He was about to close it, but then noticed a pair of briefs sticking up out of the pile of bed sheets. "Onika?" He asked, surprised. "Whose are those?" T pointed at them. Day shut the fridge and sat a bottle of water on the counter. She walked over to Terrence and took a look at what he was looking at. Nicki just stood at the kitchen's entrance with big eyes; her heart beating a mile a minute.

"Uuh.... huh?"

"You heard me."

Day looked back at her and waited for her lie.

"Oh... um... their mine?"

"Since when do you wear..." He picked them up, pinching them at the edges, and read the waist band. "Calvin Klein?" Terrence turned around and held them out for Nicki to see. She couldn't escape this one.

"What's his name and why didn't you tell us?" Day asked. Terrence dropped the briefs back onto the pile and shut the door to the laundry room. He crossed his arms and waited for Nicki to speak.

"You see..... I can't really..... Tell you....."

"What?! So there is somebody, huh?"

Nicki nervously bit her lip.

"Oooo! I shoulda known somethin was goin on! Don't no plumbers drive no damn Ferrari's!"

"Ok guys, chill out. It doesn't really matter who it is."

"The hell if it don't! Who is he?"

"Do I know'm?" Terrence asked.

"........... We have a shoot to get ready for..... Come on before I'm late." Nicki turned to head into the living room.

"Uh uh miss thang, I am not pickin up not one hot comb if you don't tell us."

"You're blackmailing me?!" Nicki asked, turning around. "You can't do that!"

"He can and we will.... My make-up kit won't see the light of day. Unless you spill it."

Terrence and Day stood side by side with folded arms. Nicki couldn't believe they were doing this. She was far from ashamed of Drake. She loved him dearly. Nicki would proclaim their love to the universe if she had the opportunity. But she just didn't want everybody in their business. However, it was only Day and Terrence. Nicki trusted them, she was just nervous of how they'd react.

"It's... Drake.... those are his briefs...."

T's jaw dropped right along with Day's.

"Say what now?!"

"You heard the girl Day. She said Drake!"

"Oh Looooorrrd! Lord have mercy!" Day clutched her chest, Nicki giggled.

"Um... ok, so now that you know, can we focus on me?"

"Not yet! When the hell did this happen?!"

"Like... three months ago... It'll be four tomorrow..."

"Four months?! How the hell did you keep this a secret from us this long?!"

Nicki shrugged.

"You're evil." T said, Day laughed.

"How?! I told you!"

"We forced you child. Come on, let's get this mess on ya head done. We don't wanna be late."

Day grabbed her bottle of water off of the counter and followed Nic and Terrence into the living room. They grabbed up all their equipment and got to work right away. Terrence washed and dried Nicki's hair then spruced up a few wigs for her to choose from. Nicki chose a short, blonde bob. Day did her make up before T put her wig on. After they were all done, they gathered all their things and waited for the truck that would come get them. The trio talked about life, Drake, Drake and Drake. Before long, their ride was there. Terrence and Day loaded the SUV. They had already done their job, but still had to go just in case Nic still needed them. After everything was settled, Nicki locked up her house and they all hopped in the truck. Next stop, Glamour mag photo shoot.


"Hey man, glad you could make it. Me and the Vaks jus grillin some stuff out back."

Drake dapped up SB and he let him inside. They headed out back where Vincent, Chris John, Rex and Lucky were all standing around the grill with beers in hand. Safaree introduced them and Drake greeted them all. The men talked for a while, switching turns at the grill. It was like Drake had been cool with them for years. They flipped some patties, barbecued some chicken and tossed back a few more beers. After they ate, they played a game of three on three. Vincent and Chris John were on Drake's team, Rex and Lucky on Safaree's. Drake might not have looked too athletic, but he was whoopin' ass! His only competition was SB. The Vaks got worn out quickly and decided to sit out the rest of the game. It was now one on one. Safaree was up by four points, but Drake was not having that. He managed to get the ball from Safaree and shot a three pointer. The score was now 51-50. Both of them were all sweaty and shirtless. The cooler full of beers wasn't the only thing with six packs. They both looked amazing with their rock hard abs. Drake still had the ball, but Safaree wasn't too far behind. He tried to block Drake from shooting. SB went to steal the ball, but Drake shook him. He pivoted too fast and both men heard a snap as he hit the ground. The basketball rolled out of his hands and off of the asphalt court into the grass. The Vaks stood up and jogged over to Drake, Safaree hovered over him.

"You ard man?" SB asked.

Drake was rolling on the ground gritting his teeth with his right knee cupped in his hands. "Shit! I think I twisted somethin." He sat up.

Safaree held out his hand and helped him up. Drake limped a little, but stood his ground.

"Damn man that looks bad." said Rex, examining Drake's red and purple, swelling knee.

"I'll be fine..." Drake limped off of the court, toward the house.

"A yo. you need some ice or sum'n?" Chris John asked.

"Naw.... I'm good."

"Nah man, you needa put some ice on that shit." Lucky stated.

Vincent and Rex nodded their heads in agreement.

"I'll go get it." Safaree said, going inside to fill a Ziploc bag with ice cubes. Everybody followed suit, including a crippled Drake. They all sat in the den and watched ESPN. SB came into the room and handed Drake the ice. It was now 2:34pm so he assumed Nic would be finished her photo shoot. He texted her.

[U dun baby?]

She replied five minutes later.
[Almost... 3 more frames. Havin fun?]

[Of course, but i cn't stop thinkin abt u.]

[Aww! Well, i gotta go Aubrey, I love you. Muuuaah!!!]

[ILY 2]

Drake slipped his phone in his pocket and continued to ice his bruised knee. He didn't tell Nic about it because he knew she'd freak out. He and the Vaks continued to watch sports. Then they played two rounds of spades. Before long, Nicki texted him back letting him know she was on her way home. It was 3 o' clock now. Drake let the guys know he was leaving. They all slapped up and Drake limped to his car. He got in and went to push down on the gas. Instead of the engine, his knee was what fired up. He couldn't apply too much pressure to it at all. How was he going to get to Nicki's? He couldn't ask her to come get him; the Vaks had no clue Nic was his other half. They'd definitely get suspicious. Or would they? I mean, they never even asked why he was there in the first place. Would they care if Nic picked him up? Drake didn't attempt to find out. He got out of his car and limped back to Safaree's front door. SB answered it and Drake asked if he could get a ride because he couldn't drive himself. The two hopped in Safaree's car and drove back to Nic's. When they arrived, SB decided to stay. He and Drake walked to the front door and knocked, but received no answer. Safaree remembered Nicki kept a key hidden in the silver wind chimes. He looked up and searched for it in the array of long and short, chrome bars. He found it hanging from a string in the middle. Safaree untied it and let himself and Drake in. They both heard loud talking and music coming from the kitchen. As they approached the noise, they saw a buzzed Nicki sitting on the kitchen counter with a wine glass in her hand. She hadn't noticed them. The two men got closer and saw that she was laughing at Terrence, who was sitting at the table, and Day, who was standing in front of the stove. The way the three stood/sat formed some sort of triangle. Nicki finally saw Drake and Safaree approaching all the commotion. She hopped down, wine glass still in hand, and ran over to hug Drake. He saw Day and Terrence looking so he hesitantly wrapped his arms around her. She kissed him on the cheek and he just looked at her like "what are you doing?" Nicki whispered in his ear, "They know..." Drake smiled and hugged her tight. He kissed her on the lips and chuckled a little. He pulled back and went over to greet Day and Terrence. Nicki watched as she hugged Safaree. She pulled away from him with concern on her face.

"Are you limping?"

After Drake said his hellos, he turned around to face Nicki. Her eyes grew wide when she saw his knee.

"Baby??? What happened?????" She asked in shock.

"It's nothin. We were jus playin basketball. I fell and my knee did somethin funky, but I'm ok."

Nicki punched SB in his chest. "What did you do to him?!"

"Ayyye!!!" He covered his chest. "Chill out woman! He said he fell!"

"Yea Nic, no big deal. Calm down." Drake giggled.

Day and Terrence just looked on, sipping their wine.

"I, Onika Tanya Maraj, will calm down when I, Onika Tanya Maraj, feel like it." She said, holding her wine glass in the air.

"Ok... You've had enough of that." Drake hobbled over and took the glass from her. He drank the rest in one gulp and sat the glass on the counter.

"Ooo, bossy?" Terrence and Day murmured, Drake shook his head with a smirk.

"How many glasses have you had?"

Nicki tried counting them on her fingers. She got distracted by something on her black, coated pinky nail and began to pick at it with a very intent and determined look on her face.


She looked up with her eyes only, her bottom lip slightly poking out. "Yessir?"

Drake laughed. "Never mind. Jus please don't drink anything else tonight."

"But wait! What if I get thirsty? Can I have water?" Nicki looked dead ass serious. Drake turned around to look at T.

"What did she have?"

"Chiiiile!! She done had 'bout fo five glasses of It Don't Even Matter! You know she light weight. Nic can't even take a shot without gettin drunk!"

Day laughed and slapped T a high five as he stomped his feet on the floor in hilarity. Safaree was now standing near hem and he also began laughing. Drake turned back to look at Nicki. She was now picking at something on his shirt.

"What are you doing?" He asked, looking down.

"What is that?" She whispered, poking him in the chest.

"It's a button...."

"Hahahaha! A button! That's a funny word. Button... Hahaha!!"

The entire kitchen was cracking up.

"Hahaha, you need a nap. Come on." He grabbed her hand and began to lead her out of the kitchen.

"But why daddy?" She whined with a pouty face.

All eyes were on Drake. T hurriedly threw back the rest of his wine and Safaree quickly poured himself a glass.

"Up! I think it's time for us to go." Day said.

"Where we goin?! I'm jus fine." Day smacked Terrence upside the head. "You know, it is about that time... Come on Safaree, take us to the airport."


"You heard me. What's wrong wit ya'll ears today? I speaks thee most perfect of English. Get'cha keys." Terrence stood up and pushed his chair in. Then he sat his wine glass down on the table. "Come on Ms. Hill, we have a flight to catch."

"You guys are leaving me?" Nicki asked.

"Yes hun. Don't worry, we'll see you soon."

Nicki shuffled over to them with a sad face, her slippers making scratchy sounds against the linoleum flooring. "Hug me?" She asked, holding her arms out wide. They both gave her individual hugs and then they all walked into the living room, Drake limping behind them. Nicki and Safaree helped Day and T load their stuff in SB's car as Drake helplessly stood at the door and watched. After everybody said goodbye, Safaree drove off. Nicki sadly walked back to the front door.

"They left me." She pouted.

Drake pulled her in for a hug and held her; she was still a bit tipsy. "You'll see them again Nic. They're not gone forever."

Nicki sighed. "Does it hurt?"

"Does what hurt?"

"Your knee..."

Drake tried to move it, but he’d been standing in one spot too long and it stiffened up. "No." He lied.

"It looks like it hurts..." She kissed him and started unbuttoning his shirt with her left hand.

"Nic? What are you doing?"

"Kissing you silly..." She began kissing his neck, still unbuttoning his shirt.

"Cut that out." He moved her hand away.

"Nooo...." She whined.

"Yeesss." He mimicked her, moving her back and opening the front door. "Come on, you needa sleep this off."

"But I don't wanna. I'm not tired.... I wanna get in the Jacuzzi..."

Drake pulled her inside and shut the door. "No."



"I'm getting in." She began to run past him, but Drake caught her, from behind, by her waist before she could ascend the steps.

"Haha, no you're not. You're going to go take a nap."

"Stop telling me what to do you meanie." She said in her baby voice. Drake giggled and Nicki broke free then ran up the steps.

"Aye?!" He shouted after her.

She turned around. "If you don't want me to get in, you hafta catch me first you cripple!" Nicki laughed then slipped her shirt off.  Drake limped after her. She undressed herself on the way to the Jacuzzi out back, leaving a trail of clothing behind her. Drake followed the path, picking her clothes up on the way. He finally found her soaking in the hot tub; the jets bubbling and steam rising. She had taken off her wig and let her hair free.

"You're so hard headed." Drake said, approaching her. He sat her clothes down on the patio table and leaned over the edge of the Jacuzzi on the opposite side of Nicki. She mischievously giggled at him. Drake saw her pulling at something under the water. She raised her hand up and dropped her pink thongs on the outside of the hot tub.

"Get in..."

Drake smirked and pulled his shoes off. "Fine..." He started unbuttoning his shirt then took off everything except his briefs. He went to step in.



"You can't get in with those on."

"And why can't I?"

"Those are the rules..... take'm off...."

Drake looked at her and started laughing. "Ard... we'll play by your rules... for now." He took them off and stepped in, left foot first. He sat straight across from Nicki and let the jets indirectly massage his swollen knee. It felt really good to him; it was just what he needed. Nicki swam her nude self over to him and straddled his lap. She wrapped her arms around his neck and began kissing him.

"I missed you today..." She whispered in his ear.

Drake held her by the waist then moved his hands down into the bubbling water and gripped her cheeks. "Did you now?"


They started to passionately kiss each other’s lips. Nicki rubbed her hand down his abs to his manhood. She held onto it with good intention. She went to make her move, but Drake stopped her.

"Mm mm. Not now baby..."

Nicki let go. "Why?" She whispered voice full of lust.

"Now's jus not a good time."

Nicki looked into his eyes. "Any time’s a good time Aubrey."

Drake looked away from her.

"Is it me?" She asked.

Drake furrowed his brow and shook his head no. "It's never you. I jus don't wanna have sex right now." Nicki rolled her eyes and lie her head on his shoulder. He hugged her body and she began to hum a tune. Drake didn't know what it was but he continued to listen. Nicki softly started to sing:

When I first saw you I already knew
There was something inside of you
Something I thought that I would never find
Angel of Mine

I look at you looking at me
Now I know why they say the best things are free
Gonna love you boy you are so fine
Angel of Mine

How you changed my world you'll never know
I'm here for now, you helped me grow

You came into my life
Sent from above
When I lost the hope
You show my love
I'm checkin for you
Boy your right on time
Angel of Mine

Nothing means more to me then what we share
No one in this world can ever compare
Last night the way you moved is still on my mind
Angel of Mine

What you mean to me you'll never know
Deep inside I need to show

You came into my life
Sent from above
When I lost the hope
You show my love
I'm checkin for you
Boy your right on time
Angel of Mine

I never knew I could feel each moment
As if they were new
Every breath that I take
The love that we make
I only share it with you
You, You, You, You

When I first saw you I already knew
There was something inside of you
Something I thought that I would never find
Angel of Mine

You came into my life
Sent from above
When I lost the hope
You show my love
I'm checkin for you
Boy your right on time
Angel of Mine

How you changed my world you'll never know
I'm here for now you helped me grow
I look at you looking at me
Now I know why they say the best things are free
Checkin' for you boy your right on time
Angel of.... Mine....

"I love you Aubrey..."

"Yea... I... love you too...."

Nicki lifted her head up. "You hesitated...."

"My bad, I love you."

"Whoa, I sense a but after that. What's with the disconnect Drake?" She asked her voice timid.

"I'm sorry... I was jus thinkin..."

"Thinking? What's so special that you can't say it back with feeing?"

"Nothing... I love you too."

"Aubrey?! Stop, now you're jus sayin it! Don't... don't do that.... It sounds fake as hell... what's up? Talk to me baby."

He sighed. "I can't..."

"Yes Drake, you can. I'm here. What is it?"

"I jus.... I can’t give you all of me...."

"What do you mean? Of course you can, you love me," They were both staring into each other’s eyes. "That’s what lovers do. They share things with one another. I give to you, you give to me. I mean, you... you do love me right?"

"No, thas n-"


"Onika, lis-"

"What the fuck Aubrey???? Are you... are you serious right now?!?!"


"No!!! Drake?! What the fuck IS this?!?! Why the fuck would you tell me you love me if you don't?!" She was crying now. "Oh my God.... has everything you told me been a lie??? Did you mean any of that shit you said to me back in New York?!"

"NO! Nooo!! Nicki?! There you go again! Let me finish, jus listen! I'm no sayin that. I do love you girl. Don't get that twisted. I meant everything I said that night I walked miles in the rain to come get you. Every bit of it. I didn’t fall to my knees and cry in front of you jus to put on a scene. That makes no sense Nic. There's absolutely no reason for me to have pretended and made up all that shit. You're everything to me. I don't know what the fuck I'd do without you. It's jus... I feel like I'm not givin you all of me. I can love you more, but I'm holdin back. I wanna love you with everything I have, I do."

"Oh...." They both wiped her tears. "Then.... why can't you? I mean, I know I hafta be patient cuz it takes time for you to open up, but..... why?"

"I.... I'm..... I'm scared Nic...."

"Of what? Me? Are you... scared of me?"

"Not exactly... I'm jus scared to.... to love you like I know I can....."

"But Aubrey, why me? I'm not here to scare you away. You can share anything with me. You can love me however you want to baby.... I won't judge you... I'm here for you and only you... nobody else compares to how amazing you are... Only time can tell what's meant to be and if you open up to me... love me like you want to.... I'm pretty sure time will do its job and bring us closer together... jus... let me in.... love me Aubrey...”

"I really wanna let you in.... and it's not you I'm afraid of.... I'm afraid of.... of bein hurt again... promise me you'll never hurt me Onika..."

"I promise baby... I do. I see how much you wanna love me. I look into your eyes and feel that you wanna love me more, but you're holding on to something and I don't know what that is. Aubrey, it hurts me to know that you're not giving me all of you. It makes me feel like I'm only in love with half of you. I want the rest... and I promise I'll never ever hurt you baby, I promise."

"Good... I... I trust your word. You've been nothing but honest with me so there's no reason for me to doubt you.... or hold back anything...."

"Is there somethin you wanna tell me?"

"Onika? You know... When I was eighteen... I started dating this girl.... shit got real serious real fast.... we ended up messin around without protection and.... she told me she was pregnant...."


"Yea..... and I had no idea what to do.... I was happy and scared at the same time. I loved her with everything I had in me. Everything.... I gave her everything..... I was workin on my first mixtape, Room For Improvement, and I knew I wouldn't have enough money to support all three of us, but I loved her and our unborn child.... I wanted to make us work so.... I proposed to her.... Not like in the movies though. We talked about it first. I never did that gettin down on one knee shit. We jus... sat on the edge of the bed and talked about our future. I was prolly more excited than she was... I talked about baby names.... If it was a girl, she'd be Morgan.... If we had a boy... he'd be a junior. We both agreed on that." A tear rolled down his cheek. Nicki wiped it away with a wet hand. She could see the hurt in his eyes, but she didn't provide any words of comfort. It was her turn to listen so that's what she did. "As the months went on, I started getting more buzz..... I had two major record labels on my heels. My pregnant girlfriend.... fiancé..... Alicia.... I.... I paid close attention to her. Took good care of her. Got her everything she wanted, everything she needed. I noticed that as my pockets grew, so did her hunger. She wanted everything..... and I spent my days tryna figure out why she didn't have any pregnancy symptoms. I may not have known much, but I was positive she shoulda been showin by the fifth month...... I didn't see a damn thing........ I confronted her about it and she didn't hesitate to tell me the truth......"

"Did she...... did she abort it?"

"No.... she was never pregnant....."

Nicki gasped and her eyes grew wide. She felt her heart drop into her stomach. She bit her lip to stop herself from crying, but her tears didn't get the hint. They streamed down her face. Nicki could feel the pain in Drake. His face was wet with his own tears.

"I was so ready to be a father... I imagined everything I'd do.... teach him how to play catch... how to tie his shoes.... his first steps.... if it was a girl, we'd play with her dolls.... play dress up.... bake cakes for mommy.... but Alicia took that all away from me..... she never even apologized. Not that that would have made me feel better.... she even laughed in my face right after she told me the truth...."

He mimicked her. "Pregnant?! Oh shit, I forgot to tell you, I'm not pregnant! Hahaha...."

"What the fuck??? That's not fair Aubrey. Why would she lie to you like that????" Nicki cried.

Drake shook his head. He had no clue. He'd always assumed she was just in it for his money.  "I don't know... not all people are good Onika.... after that, I told myself I'd never fall for anybody that hard ever again. I kept to myself. I had relationships wit girls, but they never lasted more than a month.... I couldn’t trust them... I couldn't love them like I wanted to.... I was always afraid something bad would happen... so... I'd jus cut'm loose. I couldn't take it...." Drake was still crying, but you could never tell by the sound of his voice. It was calm and almost flat. No inflection what so ever. He wasn't even focusing on Nicki anymore, not her eyes anyway. He just stared a little ways past her left shoulder, watching, but not watching the bubbles being created by the Jacuzzi’s jets. Nicki hugged him tight above his shoulders and cried into his neck.

"I'm... sorry that... happened to you baby.... I'm sorry...." Her words were muffled and her breathing hitched.

"It's not your fault Nic."

"I..... knoooow....... It's jus.... so cruel..." She continued to cry. Drake held her and let her let it all out. "I... love you Aubrey.... I promise I'll never do any shit like that! I.... promise!"

Drake closed his eyes and quietly cried with her. "I love you Onika..." He whispered to no one, His words dispersed into the air. Drake meant every word he said. He loved Onika...
