When Toni pulled into her garage, she knew that Natasha was home because her BMW was parked on the left side as usual. Toni figured that Natasha was trying to prove a point by not calling at all while she was out. Whatever the reason, she didn’t plan to stick around too long to find out. Toni just wanted to make sure Natasha was still alive and grab a few things before going back to Ashanti.
Natasha was standing in the kitchen when Toni walked in. She looked like she had recently taken a shower because her hair was wet. Then again, it was kind of strange, given the fact that she had a standing weekly hair appointment. Before thinking about it any further, Toni said, “What’s up, Natasha?”
“Hey, baby, how was your night?” Natasha asked sounding as if all things were good between them.
A little hesitant, Toni responded, “It was good. How was yours?”
“I had a good time. I had time to think about all that you said.”
“Oh yeah? What did you think about?”
“I know why you’re so weary of fully committing to me. I get that I have been saying for a couple of years now, that I was going to end things with Bryan so that we could become one. I really love you and don’t want to lose you,” Natasha said grinning from ear to ear.
Noticing how happy Natasha appeared, Toni asked, “Why are you so happy?”
Walking up to grab Toni’s forearms, Natasha kissed her on the lips then said, “I am really in love with you and have finally started doing what I need to so that we can always be together. And…I have a surprise for you!”
Still unsure of how to react, Toni cautiously asked, “What is the surprise?”
Skipping like a school girl, Natasha pulled Toni by the hand and led her to the living room. Sleeping on the couch was her baby boy, Devin. In the few years that they had been living together, Toni could count on one hand how many times Bryan allowed Devin to come over. Something was up, and Toni wanted to know what it was.
“Obviously, you talked to Bryan. So how long is Devin here? For the day?” Toni questioned.
“He is here with us forever! The three of us are going to be a happy family!”
“So Bryan just let you take Devin all of a sudden? Why do I find that hard to believe?”
“I put my foot down, baby! I put my foot down for our love! So now we have Devin and will be a family!”
“Come on now, Natasha. How is this possible? I can’t believe that he would give in after how things have been.”
“Baby, I told you that I would do anything for you. Don’t you remember when I said that?”
“Yeah, but you always saying that. What did you do, Natasha?” Toni asked starting to get scared to hear the truth.
Before Natasha could answer, there was loud banging on the front door. It was so loud, that Devin woke up. Natasha snatched Devin up from the couch and started to run back through the kitchen to the garage. Confused, Toni went to open the front door. All kinds of scenarios started playing through her head as she stared at law enforcement officers in uniform and plain clothes.
“What the fuck did you do?” Toni whispered.“I put my foot down, baby! I put my foot down for our love! So now we have Devin and will be a… Click To Tweet
