A Crazy Ghetto Love Story 3

By: Linette King
(Revenge Is Best Served Cold)


First and foremost, I have to give thanks to God who is the head of my household, for without you I am nothing. God has brought me through so many trying situations that I know I only made it through because he was by my side. My God is my savior, my healer and my deliverer. All things are possible through Christ.

To my children: Aaliyah, Alannah and Jaye… Watching you guys grow, learn and develop is something I wouldn’t trade for the world. I know you guys are watching me and I promise I will make you proud. I love you so much! You guys are the reason I go so hard. Remember to always keep God first. Allow him to lead your steps and know he will never leave your side.

To my family: Mama, Mr. Terry, Pooh, Oliver, Lorenzo and Ms Peggy: You guys have continuously had my back my entire life! I couldn’t ask for a better sister than Pooh because it doesn’t get any better. Lol

To my friends: I don’t think Jasmine is ever going to not be crazy, but I love her just the same. I know I suck at showing emotions but you’re my sister from another mother. Your family is my family because they have always accepted me and now my kids as such.

Trinisha! Your extra crazy self is doing an awesome job raising Payton and MJ. Big ups to Mario for sticking around and doing what he should as a father. Not many guys our age man up when they have children. Anywho, you keep me grounded and focused. I thank you! Never switch up on me!

To my readers: Thank you so much for your continued support! I hope you’ve enjoyed this series.

I threw on one of my black jogging suits and pulled my hood over my head as I did my best to sneak out of the house. I peeked in the room Alexis shares with Phat and saw she was knocked out. I guess that baby has been kicking her and Phat’s ass, since they sleep a lot more now. As I passed Chris’ room, I peeked in and noticed he was still gone. I let out a deep breath once I made it to the living room. “Everybody’s gone.” I thought to myself. I walked in the kitchen, grabbed my car keys and headed out the door.

As I walked to my car, I looked around to make sure nobody was watching me or about to pull up. I pulled off and headed to The Gadget Shop. I bought three tracking devices, headed back to the car and drove back home. Once I was home, I ran quickly into the house and got Vanessa’s notebook to write her a letter. Once I was done, I activated two of the tracking devices. I put both remotes on her nightstand and labeled them both. I slid one of them in my pocket and carried the other one back out with me to the car along with some supplies I may need later.

I pulled out the yard, parallel parked and shut the engine off. About an hour or so later, one of Boss Lady’s black vans pulled in. I waited patiently for them to enter our house like they always do, but they didn’t go in. “Fuck!” I cursed under my breath. I made sure the overhead light was off so when I opened the car door to get out, it wouldn’t come on. I slid out of the car slowly without closing the door behind me.

I stayed low to the ground as I crab walked to the van. I slid my body underneath the van and taped the tracking device to a pipe under it. I made sure it was on and crab walked back to my car. I slid in without being detected. The first part of my mission was complete.

I waited patiently for Vanessa, Chris and Phat to pull up and when they did, I began to wish I had some kind of way to give them a signal. The letter should be enough, but I know they’re going to be worried until they find the letter. Out of the corner of my eye I could see someone creeping along the side of the house heading towards the back. I wanted to let them know what I saw, but my cell phone was inside and I couldn’t say anything without Boss lady’s men knowing I’m alive. “Being dead sucks!” I said out loud as I watched the person creep off until they were out of view. I’m not a fighter like Vanessa, so I would only cause more problems if I chase whoever that is down.

I waited until the transaction with the money was complete before I cranked my car up. I watched them back out of the parking spot and pull away. I followed them with my lights off until we got on the highway, then turned my lights on. It took them about an hour to turn off onto a rocky road and I continued going straight. I made a U-turn and when I got to that road, I cut my lights off and drove slowly. I drove for about 30 minutes before I saw what looked like an iron gate. I began to grin from ear to ear because we were finally one step ahead of this bitch.
