We sat at the kitchen table in Ty’s house eating dinner. We were all having a good time laughing at stupid shit Mijo and Rai were saying.
“So you mean to tell me this nigga was on his knees crying?” Mijo laughed.
“Yes.” I breathed out from all the laughing I was doing. I looked over at Chris and he looked a little salty. And just looking at him made me burst out into more laughter.
“You salty?” I asked Chris, as I wiped the corners of my mouth.
“Nah.” He replied biting into a piece a chicken.
“Next time you’ll know not to stick your dick in other species besides humans.” Rai said.
“Next time yo ass gone come out with chlamydia.” Ty laughed.
“At least I ain’t the father.” Chris smirked and looked directly at Ty.
“Shit, me either.” Ty said drinking his drink.
“We don’t know that.” Mijo piped in.
“We’ll I know, and that ain’t my damn baby.” Ty was getting upset.
“No need to get mad bro.” I laughed.
“Yeah, no need to get mad Ty.” Shaunna said.
“Ain’t nobody mad.” Ty raised his voice.
Everybody at the table had a plastered smirk on their face, cause we knew Ty was mad.
We sat and ate in silence for a little while until somebody had something to say.
“So Rai, where the hell you been?” Shaunna spoke up.
“Ahem.” Rai cleared his throat. “I-I-I’ve been around.”
“Around where? Not here.” I said
“You know just hanging around minding my business.”
“Minding your business?” Chris asked.
“What business?” Mijo said looking at Rai, holding in a laugh.
“Damn ya’ll nosey.” Rai, ate some of his rice.
Mijo made a popping and slurping noise making Rai spit his rice out his mouth.
Everybody looked between Mijo and Rai trying to figure out what was going on.
Mijo laughed and formed a circle with one of his hands and took one of his fingers and was sliding it through his other hand.
“Are ya’ll fucking?” Chris asked with a shocked look on his face.
Rai spit his drink in his food and shook his head.
“What?” Mijo asked. “Hell no.”
“What type of question is that?” Rai asked.
“I mean, I just assumed with the noises and hand signals.” Chris said.
“Now Chris, you know me.” Mijo said.
“I don’t know you like that if you fucking niggas.” Chris spoke.
Shaunna burst out into laughter, and everybody looked at her like she was crazy.
“What’s funny?” I asked her, trying to hold in my laugh. If you heard Shaun laugh then you couldn’t do nothing but laugh.
“Remember at the paintball thingy and that dude was making kissey faces at Ty.” Shaun said laughing and holding her stomach.
“Oh yeah.” I laughed looking at Ty and his face was red, letting you know he was getting angry.
“He wanted some of that Jamaican ass.” Chris said.
Everybody joined in laughing. I was laughing so hard that my face was red and I couldn’t breathe.
Ty just sat there looking at us, “Man it’s not even funny.”
“Then why we laughing?” Mijo said.
“Fuck you.” Ty barked.
“That’s ole dude job.” Mijo laughed hysterically.
“What was his name?” Chris exclaimed. “Brandon or some shit like that?”
“It was Landon.” Ty spoke up.
“OOOOOOOOH you remembered his named?” Rai mocked.
“Cause he hitting that.” Mijo said.
“Aye bro don’t bring Shaunna back aids.” I half shouted trying to cover up my laugh.
“Nah he can have that shit.” Shaun laughed.
“Damn, Shaun Ty left you for a nigga.” Chris joked.
“He ain’t leave he still here.”
“The ass must not be that good.” I interjected.
“It ain’t good.” Ty said.
“How you know?” Mijo shrieked.
“He tasted it.” Rai laughed.
“Ewwwww you eat ass my nigga?” Chris announced.
Everybody erupted into laughter. They are too much for me. I couldn’t even breathe at this point.
“No, I eat pussy.” Ty was getting angry.
“I’ll ask Landon myself.” Mijo joked. “He’ll let me know if it was good.”
“Wait Landon?” Rai spoke up.
“Yes.” Mijo said.
As soon as Landon name was said, all the blood rushed down from my face and my heart stopped beating.
There’s no way in hell they know Landon. He told me wasn’t from down here.
“What’s wrong?” Lei asked me.
I shook my head, letting her know I was alright.
Deep down, I wasn’t alright. They all knew Landon, so it would be even awkward when he came over here.
Speaking of him, I wonder where he was at. He’s late. 20 minutes to be exact.
“Are you-” before the words could leave Lei’s mouth the doorbell rung.
I thought to myself, well at least it wouldn’t be that hard to tell them I’m bi. I mean Mijo already sort of know, Chris already thinks it and now it was time to go ahead and let it out.
“I got it.” Shaun stood up.
“No, no no, it okay. I’ll get it.” I stood up immediately and sped walked to the door.
I opened the door and there stood Landon looking good as fuck. I stepped outside and pulled the door shut.
“Damn.” I mumbled.
He smiled at me and leaned in for a kiss but Lei ass interrupted.
“Rai, are you coming?” she yelled.
“Yeah.” I said grabbing Landon’s hand as we walked back in the house.
“This house is nice.”
“Yeah it’s my cousins’ best friend’s house.” I said uneasily.
“Uhmmmm everybody this is Landon.” I spoke as we entered the kitchen.
Everybody face went from joking to shocked in about .5 seconds.
“I’m his boyfriend.” Landon said.
Shaun’s face still had that shocked look on it, Lei dropped her fork and coughed allowing food to go everywhere, Chris’ and Mijo’s face turned red from holding in a laugh. I know they had jokes for days, if that.
And Ty’s face was priceless.
Suddenly this just went from an amazingly fun dinner to an awkward silent dinner.
