She Wants That Dope Boy Love

“So, how was your party last night? You enjoyed it?” He asked so close I could feel his breath on my neck.

That’s when it hit me I forgot to ask Romel, if he knew who Trey was. I turned into him and asked. “How did you end up at my party anyway?”

“I was invited.” He said licking his lips, am sure purposely.

“I recently moved to Miami from Brooklyn.” He took another sip of his drink , oh did he just say Brooklyn? My hometown!

“Well look at that, am from there also.” I told him as I took up my drink to quench a thirst, I don’t think any liquid could help with.

“Oh trust me. I know you from Brooklyn.” He said that with such confidence, had me thinking twice if he knows me.

“So who invited you?” I asked, anxiously awaiting his reply.

“My cousin.” He replied playing with his beard, damn he fine.

“Who’s your cousin?” I picked up my drink and took a sip.

He smiled, very slowly this time. “Oh you know him, Romel, Romel Jackson, your fiancé”

And there you have it. On my death certificate, it’s gonna read death by Pineapple Ciroc! Cause I started to choke on my drink. Did he just say his cousin is Romel? My Romel!
