Kesi "With the streets comes consequences. The way you handle the consequences determines whether you will be the predator or become the prey." That's what I tell myself every time I step out into these streets. Nobody really cares about me other than mama which don't make me any different from the next man. My girl stays with her hand out for herself and her family, my brother's have their own agendas and I now I lose the one person I feel like really understood me. Nothing in my life has ever been easy, but this is becoming impossible. That light they say is at the end of every tunnel must have just went out on me. That was until I ran into Lexus Ellison. Beautiful, classy and intelligence came all in one perfect package. I know I'm not even close to deserving her. What right do I have to come into her life interrupting her greatness if I can't add to it? Lexus Although he is tall, dark, and chocolate, like I like them, I know that Kesi Compton is going to be trouble for me. After all, his mother did raise my brother and everybody that came out of that house was a beast in one way or another. Under any other circumstances I probably would not have even given him a second thought. There is just something about tragedy that causes the most unlikely bonds to form which is exactly what this is. I have my eyes set on college while his mindset is on the next come-up. Will I have to lose myself in him in order to get the love I have craved my whole life, or will I be able to show him a future that's not limited by his past?
