[NP] Nichole smirked and waved her little sister off, “oh, I see you on some bullshit.” It was her son’s first birthday party. The women had ducked into the back yard. The always turnt-up Tanya claiming she needed to talk.

[NP] “Bullshit?” Tanya’s jaw was tight. She edged closer. Her voice a whisper. “Bitch, you call fuckin’ my man some bullshit?”

[NP] “Huh?” she was caught off guard. “What? Girl, you better…”

[NP] Pow!

[NP] The sudden back-hand caught Nichole off guard. “What the…?”

[NP] “Stay away from my man, bitch.” Tanya pointed. “I ain’t gon’ tell yo bitch-ass again.” She hoped no one had seen what she’d done, but, then again, she really couldn’t give a fuck. “Ole ratchet-ass bitch. I cain’t stand yo ass.”

[NP] As Tanya turned, Nichole watched, rubbed her cheek and smiled.
