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...

FINALLY!!! Blogger sent me thru hell and back!! Jus kno I only do this for you guyz! I'd appreciate it if you COMMENTed it'd be really nice :)

The song Nic sung to Drake.


  1. Lmaoo Nicki needs not to drink. But that bitch Alicia got her nerve. did she think it was cute to lie to drake & use him for his money smh. That is one trifling bitch. But I love how drake is so vulnerable & sensitive. I'm glad they talked & worked it out. Great chapter post soon!

  2. Awwwwwwwww, they almost got me in tears (not really) but that was such an emotional, yet cute moment for them. I really hope that Drake is going to start giving his all to Nicki, they both deserve that. Nicki baby, lay off the drinks mama haha

    LOL @ Day & Terrence being extra nosy & tryna blackmail Nicki, but she came up with a plumber so I see why they grilled her.

    I'm mad SB & Drake was acting like they're NBA stars with that 1-on-1 which ended in my baby getting hurt -_- but he's stubborn & tryna play big boy & not get his knee checked out..smh back to the wheelchair he'll go but hopefully it heals by morning.

    When Nicki started singing Angel Of Mine like OMG I went crazy..I use to love that song (good ol days) It was so sweet ;p

    They're just so freaking cute! Hopefully the relationship gets stronger from this point on. AMAZING chapter! I loved it! Post soon :)
