Excerpt

februaryI evaluated my situation. I had lost James and I was in the process of losing O. Tariq was the
only one I had a grip on. Tariq was still paying my mortgage, but I needed another James to pay my other
bills. O was still lookin' out on my wardrobe and pocket money, but it was nowhere near what I used to
get from him. I needed to make a comeback. Tina was getting bored too. White Derrek would wire her
money ever' so often and this Puerto Rican hustler named Jahuan from down the badlands was taking her
out and would buy her some shoes here and there, but that wasn't enough. We took a trip up New York
to go to a fight and met some guys just in time for Valentine's Day. Tina put me down with boxers. She
used to mess with one back before her and I met, and she told me all about the kind of money some of
them make.The fight was interesting. I'd never been to a live boxing match before then. We went to the
after-party at the Pierre on Fifth Avenue, which was where the meeting and greeting began. This brown-
skinned bony dude came over to Tina and me and told us that his friend wanted to holla. We were
prepared to tell bull to get lost, but when we saw that his friend was Christopher Talley, the super
middleweight champion of the world, we were like all right."What are yall drinking?" Chris asked."Apple
martini." It was Tina's favorite drink."A peach schnapps," I said."Good fight," Tina said."Thank you," he
replied.Chris looked like he could have been cute if it wasn't for the missing teeth and permanent scars
that came with boxing. But he was dressed nice, and it was obvious he had money. Tina wound up with
him, and I settled for another fighter, Shawn, who was from the same camp as Chris. We all ate and
drank and then headed up to a hotel room. After I went down on Shawn and Tina did God knows what
with Chris, we all exchanged numbers and started dealing with each other regular. I even spent
Valentine's Day with Shawn at his house in Brooklyn. That pissed O off."How the fuck you goin' spend
Valentine's Day with some other nigga?" O screamed in the phone."When you decided to have somethin'
on the side," I responded."So, you fuckin' this nigga?" O asked, as if I had already admitted it to
him."Don't act like you don't know what I'm into," I said, being real for the first time in our so-called
relationship.I was tired of O's recent bullshit. We both had ulterior motives, shit."Fuck you, bitch!" he said
right before he banged on me.I wasn't mad, though. Actually, I couldn't have cared less. Shit, it was time
for O to take what he dished. I was moving on. And I guess that's exactly what it took to bring O back to
reality, because his ass started paying me a lot more attention after he found out I was messin' with
somebody else. He called me more and wanted more of my time. I gave it to him only because he was
closer and more convenient than Shawn, who traveled a lot.Meanwhile, Tina and I were making all kinds
of plans for All-Star weekend. It was so convenient that it was in Philly that year. We went down South
Street and had some things made. I ordered a baby pink leather suit with white stripes going down the
side of the legs and arms like the Adidas sweat suits. The shirt hung off the shoulders. It was hot. I
bought a baby pink Kangol to go with it. Tina ordered the Iverson jersey with the red leather sleeves and
the red leather ties on the sides. It was hot too. She paid $349 for that shirt. She bought some Frankie B.
jeans from down Charlie's in...
